Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai. – 05
Funny glasses…Funny glasses everywhere! Quele whips out some funny glasses reminiscent of the ones found in Persona 4. These ones perform similarly allowing spectators to see through the skil nil capsules that prevent people from seeing what is really occurring. It’s hard to take fighting scenes (where our main characters are supposed to be in danger) seriously when this occurs. Was the nose bit really necessary? (LOL)
Half of the episode was dedicated to Ryosuke’s training. He really wants to become someone who isn’t a burden which seems noble until you think about where his power comes from. I don’t know what studying the dictionary does to his pervertedness but having to make connections between words rather than thinking of what gets his kingdom rising is much more indirect and complicated. I guess our male lead can’t just be perverted. He has to make it an art form in order for it to be a unique power. I do admit that linking women to summer is slightly clever. Summers do bring some nice things (especially in Japan). Unfortunately, this special training causes him to ignore Lisara which ultimately leads her to believe that he doesn’t care. I’d take it the wrong way too if I didn’t know what he was doing.
I’m really surprised by how Quele’s crush is progressing. She has turned into a stalker who spies on him every chance she gets. This also reminded me of when the P4 cast was stalking Kanji. It’s kinda creepy she let herself into his house while he was asleep. What did she want to happen while she was there? It all seems very unorthodox since she doesn’t really get much personal time with him. What she gets every night is Mina boasting about his good points while she recharges. I guess harems can be built this way too.
The vastly different visions Mina and Quele had of Ryosuke were pretty funny. Mina envisioned him as an angel while Quele saw a centaur. I don’t know how you could get excited over an angel with pink wings. Mina was even more excited. No little lady, that’s really a horn…Let’s not turn this M rated ecchi show into an AO anime. Ryosuke actually makes for a great centaur though since he appeared mighty and regal.
The boss monsters that Lisara have been fighting up till now have been boring me visually. This week’s monster had an interesting ability though and having mismatches in powers isn’t seen very often. I just wish there was some slight variation in their forms. Pulling out the sword implanted within his chest was very unexpected. We’re finally seeing something more than perversion.
