Not as Dirty as I hoped for!
After last week’s modest start, I was ready for our crazy cast of characters to throw their best material at us. Be it the standard fare of dirty sex jokes or oddly specific comments about Tsuda and his man parts, this week’s offering still felt a bit tame. Which sure, may be funny the first one or two times but after witnessing just how far this show will go, you can bet that I have higher expectations than one or two kiddy jokes! However, I did think that the running tissue joke was freaking hilarious. Growing boys need a way to wipe themselves off don’t they?!
Uomi, the Other Student Body President
From the moment I saw her during last week’s episode, I was hoping that Uomi would’ve been another straight-man to help Tsuda and Suzu retort all the incoming jokes I thought we’d be hearing. And you know, in some ways she’s kind of like the dirty straight-man that Aria could have been if she weren’t so air-headed. Instead of trying to leapfrog off a joke and take it to whole new level, I really enjoyed how Uomi was able to take whatever was thrown at her and just compliment it instead of escalating things.
But honestly, it seems like she’s a carbon copy of the not-so-well endowed Shino. Sharing the same title, body type, and mindset it’s hard to say what makes her unique compared to the crazy cast of characters we already have — which is what I would have said until I saw the last few minutes of the show.
Unlike the four members who populates the student council and apparently can’t recognize the growing bond between themselves, it seems that Uomi can easily see “what’s up” or at least “what should be up”. If you remember last week when I brought up the romance aspect in a comedy show, I think her appearance in the show might be an answer to my prayers! While we’ll have to wait and see whether or not she has her eyes on our Vice President, it seems that she might be x-factor we need to get the theoretical ball rolling!
Two episodes in, what do we have?
I’m hoping that the series is just having a slight case of sequel-flu. With the production levels still through the roof and a whole new element just waiting to be explored, there are so many ways for Seitokai’s second season to be a hit that I’m sure GoHands will eventually hit it out of the park. While things still feel a bit stiff at the moment, I’m hoping it’s the writers’ way of easing us into things. On that note, let’s all hope that the production values stay high and the jokes get raunchier!
- Suzu is just too cute for this show at times. If only they’d stop SHAFT-ing her with those horrible camera angles!
- Dat Butt Vase in comparison to the original vase is just too much.
- I don’t think Tsuda will ever escape the dried squid.
P.S. I just watched Seitokai Yakuindomo OVA 3 after writing the post and all of Uomi’s scenes are so much funnier knowing that she might have actually been that normal girl I was looking for when she was first introduced. While it doesn’t change anything, I would recommend taking a peek at the OVAs if you already haven’t! Anyways, 1-9-1-9-1-9-6-9 everyone!
P.P.S. Shout out to Zanibas for taking the time to cap this episode while I was in Los Angeles for Anime Los Angeles. Expect a post with a review and lots of pictures soon!
