Sony fanboy to the rescue.
I don’t care if this show every gets back on track with the supposed “main story”. As long as they keep up the comedy I can watch these random side stories forever.
Looks like your “textbooks” have been discovered, Jin.
In terms of story and plot, not much has happened in this episode so I’m going to keep this one brief. The basic premise was that Jin had done something emotionally hurtful to Nagi. We learn later that Jin apparently recorded over Nagi’s recording of Lolikko Cutie with a show about cats (which Nagi liked as well). Nagi has shut herself inside Jin’s closet because of this and refuses to leave.
Oh Akiba, you so funny.
Throughout the episode, Tsugumi, Zange and the Arts Club members all end up visiting Jin one way or another. Despite their efforts, no one was able to convince Nagi to leave the closet. Not even Akiba, who was supposed to bring a copy of the latest episode was able to get her out of the closet.
I knew it was coming, but it was still pretty funny.
When all was said and done, Jin tries to give Nagi a very sincere apology only to find out that Nagi has already left the closet and probably hasn’t heard a word he said.
Yeah, it was hard to watch porn when your parents put the computer in the living room, isn’t it?
This episode kind of hits home for me and possibly some of the other viewers out there. It reminds me a lot of my childhood and how I would get upset when I wasn’t allowed to watch my favorite TV show since the adults would be watching something else. I’ve locked myself in closets a few times as well but I don’t think I’ve ever stayed that long. On a random note, this episode reminded me of that South Park episode where random celebrities went into a closet and the recurring joke was that they won’t “come out of the closet”.
I wonder how much money Sony gave them for that shameless plug.
Akiba has to be one of the best side characters I’ve ever encountered in a comedy anime. “It’s a Sony” will probably live on in the hearts and minds of all the Kannagi fans and probably all the Sony fanboys out there as well. If not, I will certainly never forget Akiba’s epic words.
We are the champions, my friends.
The Jin X Akiba scene was pretty amusing yet slightly awkward to watch. Not that there’s anything wrong with two guys running towards each other and embracing passionately. It’s just that well… it was a bit unexpected and a little over the top. But it still gives a good laugh. Hey they had to appeal to the female audience and to balance out this next scene I’ll be talking about.
It’s not what you think! It’s not what you think!
Ah, yes. I can’t get enough of Jin X Zange. Whatever exactly went on between the two will forever be left to the imaginations of all perverts (and possibly non-perverts) out there watching this show. Is it just me or was there a lot of sexual stuff going on in this episode? Not just with Zange, but the chat between Tsugumi and Nagi was filled with it too. Of course in that example, only those of us with dirty minds would probably pick up on it. (¬.¬)
Suteki na sutekki!
Return of the Nagi puns. I’ve actually missed these and this one in particular made me laugh pretty hard.
Tsugumi didn’t have much of an impressive role in this episode, but she did contribute to a pretty amusing moment between Akiba, Takako, and herself with the whole KamaPure thing.
Tsugumi told you to GTFO.
Oh and let’s not forget that brief moment where Tsugumi’s “dark side” appeared again with Zange.
Even a noob like me can spot this Ultraman reference.
Crimeny! More roaches.
Ten points to the first person that knows where I got that line from.
Lolikko Cutie Mania
I must be either totally crazy or a fanboy, but I wouldn’t mind if they made an actual series of this as long as they maintain that level of animation quality and cheesiness.
A perverted magical wand. How awesome is that?
Mahou shoujo that involves the President? How crazy is that?
Is that bad?.
LOL. I almost fell out of my chair when she got randomly hit by that truck.
I’ve never seen such fluid animation for a slice of bread.
Eww. I just noticed that he even uses his pubic hair.
More random goodness, although you can’t really see it in this shot.
Haha. More Ultraman parodies?
Doesn’t seem like Nagi was too impressed. Oh well.
