Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu Ni! – 10
「僕と恋路と恋愛術」 (Boku to Koiji To Renaijutsuu)
“Me, Romance, and the Art of Love!”
I don’t know how he did it, and I don’t really care how he did it, but he did it. Somehow clawing his way back from the brinks of death, at least romantically, Akihisa has once again proved his worth as the stupidest but best protagonist of the season.
But before that, I was a little shocked how the huge cliffhanger from last week was put on the side in favor of dealing with the ESB tactics between classes F, D, and B; apparently this show still has a lot of fight left in it! I’ve been pondering what was missing in this sequel, and while I still think there are a lot of things missing, the slapstick humor at Akihisa’s expense managed to fill the hole that the earlier episodes left in my heart.
I was always curious how Himeji managed to create those deathly dishes of hers and after being enlightened to her cooking process, I think I’d do anything and everything possible to avoid letting that horrible combination of flavors get within meters of my mouth. Cocoa, green onions, natto, fish, and tobacco or tabasco — I can feel my stomach screaming at me to run away.
After watching the ESB between Akihisa and Miharu end rather abruptly with Class F taking him out in order to save their class from facing a predetermined loss, the ending to the episode made up for everything that happened last week. As I stated earlier, Akihisa may steal the title of best protagonist of this summer season with that amazing speech of his. As dumbfounded as everyone may have been, I had a pretty good idea what was going on during that exchange between Akihisa and Miharu.
I may have spoiled myself by reading some of the comments you guys posted down there without spoiler tags, but I can’t help but root for Minami. When Akihisa so eloquently expressed how special Minami is to him, I’d be surprised if there’s a girl in the world who could avoid blushing over something like that. Judging from the look on Minami’s face, I’m sure that I’m not too far off the mark. (;
