Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu Ni! – 07
「僕とのぞきと遥かなる桃源郷っ！」 (Boku to Nozoki to Harukanaru Tougenkyou)
“Me, Peeping, and the distant Shangri-La”
If only things were as simple in real life as they seem in your dreams. A smiling Tetsujin and a Minami and Himeji that aren’t quick to jump to conclusions? It’d be a nice change of pace from all the stupidity that we’ve endured in the past few episodes. But when you’re manhandled into a corner by the opposite gender, the only acceptable counterattack is too bring a bigger gun to the gun fight. Or in this case, enough guys to mow down all the opposing forces.
In a manner that would fit the ingenious mind of F Class’s Yuuji, I thought it was pure genius to use the lure of amazing pictures to bring A, B, and C class to their side. Even with all the different obstacles preventing each class from helping in the plan, it wasn’t too surprising to watch every male student drop their high and mighty attitude when lewd pictures were thrown into play. And to those who are honest about what they really want, good luck will always fall down upon you (I’m referring to Kubo’s speech about openly expressing his love to Akihisa).
With little bits of true strategy thrown into this dogfight, the icing on the cake had to be Akihisa’s win against Tetsujin. Even though I felt a little sad that after learning that Tetsujin only had Akihisa’s best interests in mind, I couldn’t help but “rofl” when I heard Akihisa yell out his finishing move. I really didn’t understand how Tetsujin went down while defending his crotch, but it was pretty damn unexpected. It was also really out there when Miharu revealed that she was the blackmailer, since it only helped make this arc feel completely useless.
Until this scene. I can’t even remember how many times I’ve wanted to punch Akihisa for not noticing the two girls who are madly in love with him. But with both parties being painfully dense about everything, I was starting to think that it’d become a first come, first serve type of thing. And, I’m sorry Himeji, but whether Minami did it from that text message or because she couldn’t take it anymore, I think you’ve lost. Even though I’m pretty sure that this show will find some way to turn this around and make it seem like Minami’s kiss was nothing, I don’t think I’ll be able to accept anything that tries to reverse this situation. But, at least the arc is finally over right?!
