Nichijou – 23
「日常２３」 (Nichijou 23)
“My Ordinary Life 23″
Sometimes I like to think that KyoAni might actually read RandomC. Since every time I gripe about something, the exact opposite occurs the week after. Which would mean that this week’s Nichijou was awesome.
I’ve always been a big fan of watching Mio get trolled by her older sister. It’s kind of like when you’re at a friend’s house and their older siblings decide to mess with them, and while you may not laugh out loud, you know that deep down you’re laughing a little bit. With Mio and Yoshino, I think it boils down to the rapid succession of how things go from bad to worse whenever they are anywhere near each other. I don’t know why it’s so funny but it just is!
I will be damned if someone tries to tell me Sakurai-sensei wasn’t amazingly cute this week. I normally don’t pay much attention to her skits since I’ve grown weary of her very passive attitude but when you remove the responsibilities of being a teacher, that passive attitude becomes something so innocent that it’s nearly too cute to handle. On the other hand, I’m sure Makoto was caught completely off guard when his precious ecchi magazine was found. I can’t imagine how awkward it feels for someone to actually find your “stash”, especially if it’s your super innocent older sister.
Was it me, or did it look like Mai had a look of jealously in her eyes? The blank stare at her friends surrounding Nano, sitting far back and not joining the conversation, and even visiting Nano and Hakase alone only helped solidify the thought that Mai wanted something. I feel bad that I think so negatively of Mai, but after two seasons of trolling, I think I’d also maintain this face if she was within twenty feet of me. But at the end when she was cherishing that picture of a shark that Hakase drew and traded to her, I was honestly confused on how to feel. My heart told me I should feel some happiness for her, but my brain just wouldn’t let me.
With Takasaki-sensei finally becoming the Igo-Soccer Club’s advisor after caving in to a deal too perfect to pass up, it’s starting to feel like the end is near. Three more episodes, and I will no longer have something to brighten up my day with random laughs :(
