WORKING’!! – 10
「ケータイ無問題」 (Kētai, Mōmantai)
“Cellphone, No Problem”
Souta sexually harasses Inami which prevents her from coming back to work. Just kidding! We all know he wouldn’t do that…Or would he?
That preview image of Souta forcing himself on Inami was all to make our imagination run wild. He was just trying to save her after Kyouko was too lazy to fix her incorrect stacking. But leave it to Souta to degrade his image further when he touches Inami while she is sleeping. He enjoyed it a little too much. If you’re going to make excuses, stick to one story man! And of course Inami is going to go nuts about Souta’s proximity to her face. After all, it is hard to work with someone you are attracted to (or so she says). When he makes the comparison to making contact with a rare wild animal, I would say he was spot on. Except in this case that rare wild animal is a bear who can who can kill you. I have to admit though, I was a little happy at the prospect of not having Inami in the restaurant from this incident.
I shouldn’t be too hard on her though. I know I’ve said in past posts that I would rather not have them focus too much on the couple but in this episode Inami really helped deliver the funnies. Her confrontation with Jun was great. It was like a game of chess. Jun’s assessment of the situation was hilarious. I’ve been watching a lot of Gundam episodes lately so he struck me as one of those calm and calculating captains who face an impossible situation. Keeping composed is the face of death takes a lot out of you.
I knew they’d break out another cameo appearance eventually so seeing Souta as Kotori wasn’t surprising. If you’ve been keeping count this season we’ve had the Izumi in episode 3, Otoo-san’s wife Haruna in episode 4, the kid in episode 5, the twins in episode 6, and Kirio in episode 7. They’ve been consistent on introducing something new every couple episodes to stir the pot. Now I’m just waiting for Maya to talk again before the season ends. Judging from Popura’s hair, we might be heading towards Christmas.
