Special A – 10

「殿・竜」 (Shingari / Ryuu)
“Anchor / Ryuu”


Next Episode:
「彼女・彼氏」 (Kanojo / Kareshi)
“Girlfriend / Boyfriend”

So it turns out Ryuu is only holding the lowest 7th rank in the S.A class because he’s always worried about and taking care of Jun and Megumi. Given their past of how they were bullied simply because they were the children of well-off families, it’s apparent now why the twins are so attached to Ryuu. As for Ryuu himself, watching him blaze through an huge test in 10 minutes makes me wonder what rank he would be if he focused on school more. He might just be up there next to Kei.

Also, what I thought was a new character last time turned out to be Nakahara from back in episode one, who wants to abolish the S.A class after getting suspended from school. The premise of that seems a bit typical and cookie-cutter, but I found it to be a nice angle on the whole Ryuu, Jun, Megumi sub-story.

As for Kei, it seems like he’s becoming a bit more direct in his approach towards Hikari, so that’s moving slowly along as usual. Next time, it looks like a lot is happening, but I can’t quite make head or tails out of what’s going on from the preview. It looks to be like it should be an interesting one though.

    It’s good to see Kei trying a more direct approach. We’ll see how long it takes now for Hikari to get a clue.

    I just started reading the manga and I was wondering, why does it look nothing like the show?

    I’m wondering if I should start reading the manga also, or maybe I should wait for the anime to finish. Manga is up to 14 volumes and still going, so I figure the anime will either end at some good arc or do it’s own thing. I’ll have to wait and see I suppose.
