Opportunity… It only knocks once.
Well now that I can type more comfortably with this new ergonomic keyboard I can go full tilt in praise of this episode, the beach episode was fairly well done especially since Haruka did look most dashing as she was better animated this time around. How it took this long for Kana to demonstrate her car sickness. Still I think that the reasoning behind his loli powered burial was lost on Takeru. Fujioka sure was lucky to get to go and I nearly fell out of my chair when it looked like he was about to feel up Haruka. I don’t think any of us would have blamed him if he did… Surprisingly enough it seems that Uchida is one step ahead of the rest in laughing at the notion that Chiaki only wants to be Fujioka’s imouto. Fujioka sadly though had his hopes raised and then brutally dashed when Kana made a confession, to everyone. I am still not sure why Kana didn’t just throw up on Takeru in revenge but going for Chiaki’s bag was evil enough I suppose. Still just what did cross Fujioka’s mind when Haruka said that Chiaki was always using it?
(Sorry it took so long I am still getting use to the trackball)
So Fujioka’s whose tuckus is the best?
Every loli-con wants to be Takeru some day.
I think not…
Not sure why Maki is the only one of Haruka’s friends who came to her home, nut I suppose that Maki is keen on BEING FRIENDLY with Haruka. I think I know why Hayami always sets Hosaka on Maki, it might well be to train a successor. After all Maki was able to screw with Fujioka’s mind in a way reminiscent of Hayami with Hosaka. The spoon thing was delightful, but the best part was when Fujioka challenged Touma to an eating contest. Just as Mako-cakes is starting to lose his gender identity, so too is Touma for the short term as she’s quite enthusiastic when partaking of manly contests with Fujioka. They are very much BEING FRIENDLY. Fujioka is definitely becoming more like Hosaka though he doesn’t know it yet, already we have seen him get FRIENDLY with Touma, and now it seems that Fujioka has adopted the food offensive portion of the Hosaka doctrine. Those Japanese watermelons seem rather small, but I guess not all of them have to be square. Still I find it weird that people would put salt in their watermelon, I know Southern folks do it, but their weird and pile on sugar on peanut butter… Kana has learned some new skills it seems as she can actually cook “Ninjin Loves You Yeah!” curry now that will not kill people and can spit a respectable distance. Still would have been more awesome if she sang the Ballad of the Curry no Yousei. Even if Hosaka and Hayami are missing I guess we can console ourselves with Hayami in training, Maki-can, and Hosaka in training Fujioka. Though we need to have a Fujioka fantasy just to be sure that Fujioka can stay the course.
That’s some self control ya got there Fujioka.
Thank you Asread I forgive your minor bikini continuity error.
I suppose twin-tails are one of the benefits that make up for the lack of that lovely yellow one she had.
Poor Uchida can’t seem to get the better of Chiaki, but at least she still has Mako-cakes. I was not expecting Mako-cakes to make a return and it seems that once again that Mako-cakes is getting a bigger animation budget. So far it seems that Mako-cakes is at least learning the art of subterfuge though he is stumbling in intelligence. I love how Mako-cakes was going to help Uchida and then copy her. Once again Mako-cakes proves how dignity is such a trifling thing as Chiaki whispered in his ear, and he liked it… Perhaps he is vaguely aware of how awesome Chiaki will be once she becomes All Woman Chiaki (whom I sorely miss). In the end Mako-cakes wins over Chiaki and Uchida gets to copy the summer homework (thank goodness we don’t have that BS in the US). I am impressed that at such a tender young age that they already know how to cheat. Touma was right though why shouldn’t she be allowed to copy? I suspect that Uchida is starting to take an interest in Mako-cakes and sought to deny Touma any help from Mako-cakes. Sad to see that the special relationship between Touma and Mako-cakes is not as it once was, though I suppose that Touma could have jumped Mako-cakes after Uchida left. Yoshino seems to have stopped harassing Mako-cakes for reasons unknown, and I did enjoy the terror that Yoshino instilled in Mako-cakes, maybe it will make a return. Perhaps this is the beginning of Mako-cakes’ youth and all it cost him was his manhood and his dignity. Truly the female gender is quite enamored with itself, even grade school girls seem to be attracted to guys who look like girls. Once again it seems that Mako-cakes is going to keep with the color coordination and has no problems going out into public by himself. He didn’t even bring a change of clothes or even think about changing once he knew that Haruka was out.
Is it ever?
Fujioka has waited all his life to hear those words…
He’s still waiting.
Chiaki has definitely been losing out to Kana this season as for most of the summer it seems Chiaki made the same mistake over and over again in trusting Kana bearing food. The soy sauce ice shavings was so evil, I have to try it sometime. Touma has discovered the greatest gift for Japanese in Matsutake mushrooms which seem to be pricy as hell. Chiaki scores a moral victory by eating all of Kana’s choicest dishes, but it does nothing to mitigate Chiaki’s string of losses to Kana. Even if Chiaki claims that this will be her season Mako-cakes is probably going to usurp it once again. Hell even in the preview he’s bleeding out femininity in his male clothes… Still this might be the year when Mako-cakes and Chiaki finally start BEING FRIENDLY, he still won’t ever get to go back to being Makoto though.
It was a good episode that had its real juicy moments in the middle especially when Mako-cakes was trying to out wit Chiaki. Maki-chan bullying Fujioka was good though I can only hope that in the future it gets better. Haruka is still not getting her fair share of the animation budget though at least for the beach segment she did look AMAZING.
Is it Hayami with juice?
Hosaka told him to do it.
Don’t you start stripping Fujioka, or Maki will fix you.
Yep it seems Hayami has been training Maki to be next overlord of the volley ball team.
You should try making Kana a bento.
So you enjoy spooning eh?
And here I thought that Mako-cakes would ne MIA.
Wait why does he care about where Kana is?
Your Lucky Day.
Mako-cakes don’t you think you might want to change?
Mad at Uchida? Never…
Great Idea Mako-cakes.
She’s out cold, try kissing her.
Mein Gott he’s really lost in character now…
Well at least Uchida is getting smarter.
Oh Oh! here comes the nibble!
You saw All WOman Chiaki didn’t you?
Don’t forget to thank Mako-cakes.
Touma has not forgotten how much you owe her…
What else could it be…?
Touma, Touma, Touma the trick is to get in CLOSE.
Kana was far from subtle too…
And yet Chiaki still trusts Kana…
Bow before your new GOD.
Bow puny humans!
LET”S BE FRIENDLY
