Looking good there Chizuru
I was recently reminded that this show airs at 10:30am on Saturday mornings in Japan. No wonder it’s become like the #1 show for like 10 year olds, I mean holy crap if I could have watched this instead of Captain Planet when I was 10 I certainly would have. I’d be like “OMG BOOBIES AND PANTIES.” Japan amazes me sometimes, because they censor panties or blood in Hayate no Gotoku, but they show this in all it’s glory during Saturday morning cartoon time.
As hinted at in last week’s preview, this week we have the New Years matsuri episode. I will say first off that Chizuru looks quite delicious in that. But after that we have to remember where this show comes from after the last two weeks of light Chizuru x Kouta alone and in heat content. Going back to their roots to start this one off.
A fun thing about this episode was the rabu rabu that the side characters were engaging in or trying to engage in. While we knew Chizuru’s brother had a thing for iinchou early on, he’s starting to build himself up, only to get ignored later on in favor of her unrelenting drive to promote morals. Even the wind weasel kid and the loli in a tub got some time alone to blush and smile at each other. Awwwwwww.
One wonders if this double meaning also holds in Japanese, because I know exactly what popped into my mind when I first read that line… Anyways, this scene brings back memories of Yume Miru Kusuri, although that wasn’t under a kotatsu and they uh, actually finished the deed. Chizuru does share some traits with Mizuki, she’s pretty aggressive in getting what she wants. Man, that game was awesome, I should go play it again.
I’m going to once again wonder why school swimsuits are popular with otaku. I really think they look kind of ugly, I’d much rather see a girl in a bikini than one of those ugly things. The naked apron I can definitely go for though, without the swimsuit underneath.
Score a few points for Chizuru with the obviously made up consequences of the game amplified by her own spirit powers. The taped on “make love to the person in front of you” spots were a nice touch as well, I giggled. As I was watching this I was wondering when the DFC wolfu was going to show up, and low and behold she did.
I have no idea if this seiyuu can actually do a character with emotion, but lordy she does a great sarcastic deadpan. Funniest part of the episode by far and requires little explanation. She seems to have a uh, lack of nipples though, they aren’t covered by the subtitles so don’t bother trying.
Ummmm, I really can’t think of anything clever here, too distracted
Buck up guys, there’s always next year
Weekly quota. A pretty well done New Year’s episode I’d have to say, as the show tries to keep itself fresh by putting them in different situations and well, outfits. I appreciate that fact, and the fact that they haven’t tried to delve much into actual plot, instead emphasizing these more one shot episodes with fun, ecchi, and comedy.
On another side note, Anime Nation reports that:
“Dengeki Online reports that the upcoming Japanese DVD release of the romantic comedy anime series Kanokon will be even more risqué than the Japanese television broadcast and internet broadcast versions, which have already caused a stir because of their “ecchi” content. The first Kanokon DVD is scheduled for Japanese release on June 25th.”
Frankly I didn’t think it was possible to go even further without becoming porn, but I for one certainly look forward to the producer’s attempts to accomplish that. If nobody will do it for me I’ll rip the subs myself if I can find the DVD raws…
Looks like a new character at the start, probably a plot device of some sort. Voice over didn’t really add anything.
