Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai – 10

“No One Sleeps at Training Camp”
I don’t really watch Haganai for any significant emotional stimulation, but I would really like it if the story behind Yozora and Kodaka could be resolved in some significant manner that warrants shedding a few tears. If you didn’t catch it, the latter half of this episode had a good deal of awkward blushing moments between the two. Some of which were so blatant that even other characters started to notice!
That said, it’s tough to feel any emotions for Yozora after she’s entered sadistic bitch mode. While she may only turn into one while interacting with Sena, it really doesn’t work in her favor. Except for providing a cheap thrill for all the guys watching the show, it makes it really hard to sympathize with her inability to make “friends” when she’s so cruel to the closest thing she has to a “female friend”. It baffles me when I think about how Yozora always pushes Sena to the point where she’s running away in tears — the first six times were funny, but it’s starting to get a little old when it happens every single time the two have anytime of serious conversation.
Luckily, there were more than enough scenes to capture your attention if the main storyline wasn’t doing it for you. While some of those scenes may be dangerously close to treading on your moral beliefs, you can’t deny that some of them were pretty interesting. With three episodes or so to go, I’m terribly happy that from the previews, it looks like Kodaka might finally make the connection that Yozora is his long lost friend. But, the bigger question is what happens after he makes that connection? Be it good or bad, I think that this may be the last change Haganai has to really get us emotionally involved — so let’s hope for the best!
