「そうだ！プールに行こう。私の水着、みたいよねっ！」 (Sou da! Puuru ni Ikou. Watashi no Mizugi, Mitai yo ne!)
“I Know! Let’s Go to the Pool. You Want to See My Swimsuit Don’t You!”
The only thing funnier than a hormone-raging perverted male character in its respective category has to be a female one. It’s even better when you place her dead center in a series too, which Yamada continues to prove in this episode. I don’t know what she’d do without “F-shita” though, both in terms of comedy and actually getting anywhere with Takashi. As you can probably guess, this series continues to be all about Yamada trying to shack up with him and blow her virginity out of the water, but it still isn’t nearly as showy as the series going for the full exposure type of service. In fact, they show pretty much nothing and it’s because of that very reason that I’m enjoying this series a hell of a lot. The comedy is more from Yamada’s rabid imagination and how it gets carried away beyond belief than Takashi falling into her breasts or something along those lines.
The pool portion of this episode was a good example of that, as neither Yamada nor Miharu had their tops fall off, but we did get a surprisingly arousing whimper from the former when Takashi grabbed onto her for dear life. Follow that up her jumping the gun on a gay relationship between Takashi and Miharu’s boyfriend Matsuo Daisuke (Koizumi Yutaka) and it’s just good adult-themed laughs here. To that end, I’m amused by how Miharu can jump in and dish out the tsukkomi even when it’s just thoughts running through Yamada’s sex-ridden mind. I guess she can read exactly what’s going through Yamada’s mind based on her facial expression, but even if that weren’t the case, it’s funny regardless of whether it makes sense or not!
「ライバル出現！誰よ？あのＦカップ！？」 (Raibaru Shutsugen! Dare yo? Ano F Kappu!?)
“A Rival Appears! Who is That F Cup!?”
In the latter half of the episode (they all seem to be broken up into two parts), it was humorous seeing Yamada stock up on a mountain of condoms and hearing how she wants to be perceived as a girl who’s always ready to have sex. Things then got even better with the appearance of the childhood F cup friend to spoil her fun. Now this girl may be known as Miyano Mayu in this show, but the whole big-busted, glasses-wearing character played by Hanazawa Kana sure seems a lot like a certain Sonohara Anri from Durarara, with the addition of the dojikko (clumsy) personality. Much like Anri, I’m starting to think that big-busted meganekko characters are “dangerous existences” in the grand scheme of things, and I’m willing to bet that B cup Yamada agrees with me.
All in all, a good episode filled with adult-themed gags. The next one looks like it’ll introduce another female character to drive Yamada up the wall while she continues to prey on Takashi. The preview indicates that she’s found out about his interest in photography and is willing pose nude for him, so I can already imagine how that will play out based on the dark room scene. All I got to say is, who would’ve thought that the guy would be Little Red Riding Hood and the girl with her dress shirt undone and no bra on is the Big Bad Wolf?
