Seitokai Yakuindomo* – 05
「支えスタイル , ぬぎあともっこり, 戦う少女たち」 (Sasae Sutairu, Nugi ato Mokkori, Tatakau Shoujotachi)
“Support Style, Pitching a Tent after the Deed, Fighting Girls”
After hurting my back and being almost bed-ridden for a few days, I bring to you another great episode of the show we all love to watch but refrain from talking about at the dinner table.
Throwing decency out the window (YES!)
It could be the medicine I’m taking, but something about this week’s episode just felt so right. Building off of last week’s momentum, I loved how straight from the get-go SYD* was throwing some great material at us. From ripped dudes pitching tents to the pondering whether or not sweat or piss is the better drink for summer — this episode was just doing everything right.
Blowing your load, everywhere.
If the idea of golden showers isn’t down your alleyway, this week’s mini-gag reel was pretty amazing. Toning things down a bit, SYD* reminded us that it can still make us laugh without cock slapping us in the face. That said, I do have one comment about the speed reading gag. If you had a photographic memory and the ability to read as fast as Suzu, wouldn’t you have realized after a couple pages that you should probably stop? That is, unless Suzu was lying about her abilities…
Swimsuits and Judo?
After literally blowing its load all over us before the halfway mark, I never thought that the second half of the episode would have been as entertaining as it was. After seeing Shino in a new swimsuit, I started to question why other high school’s don’t add accents to their school mizugis. Not only do they look pretty stellar with different shades of blue accenting a girls figure but something about that more modern backside would probably encourage
students guys to stay in school! Besides the awesome mizugis, a couple other things stuck out to me. Things like Hata’s patented way of always having that perfect smile and Aria’s attempt at becoming a man.
In terms of the Judo Club or rather Mitsuba, I was actually caught off guard when the show reminded us that she’s one of the few innocent students left. Not that it really matters since she’s completely focused on her Judo Club but I wonder at times how she manages to keep that mind of hers so clean with every other person ready to take things to the next level. On the other hand, it seems that being focused on a goal and not wasting time with silly jokes leads to the entire school having a huge assembly to send you off to intramurals. Not a bad trade, eh?
SYD SHOPPING and the Future!
Two episodes in a row, SYD is doing a great job at maintaining that magical feeling its first season left us with. With a nice gag to boob ratio, there’s never a dull moment while you wait for the next joke to hit. Add in side characters like Mitsuba or Kotomi who manage to shake things up in their own unique way and you have the perfect combination of stuff to make a great SYD episode!
However, I do hope the production values go back up soon. There was almost too much use of chibi-styled art in this episode ;__;
