Demi-chan wa Kataritai – 08
「亜人ちゃんは学びたい」 (Demi-chan wa Manabitai)
“Demi-chan Wants To Learn”
I also believe Satou-sensei would taste the best ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Yuki is a Devilish Girl
Before getting deep into the cosplay community and really seeing people for who they are, I’d be the kind of guy who would have just giggled about seeing Yuki’s true self leak out when something piqued her interests. However, because I actually know a good number of people who are basically real life versions of Yuki, I found myself laughing pretty hard every time Yuki tried to cover up her random laughs or when she was having some “dirty” thoughts. And while I’m sure the animation as well as the timing of the jokes are what really drove things up, picturing my friends as Yuki in that position really pushed it over the top for me. That or maybe it was the mere fact we had the two females who have the craziest inner thoughts trying to have a civilized conversation with each other.
Friendship Level Up!
While the idea of friendship has been at the forefront of the show, I’ve really enjoyed how it manages to take a backseat to all the other things that are going on until the story decides it’s time to show us some true slice-of-life moments. Not only does it help accentuate the times where we get to see our three favorite girls just hang out and do things, the timing of when it happens usually occurs after a big event or two where we get to see a nice contrast as well as just how much the characters have grown. From Kyouko cracking jokes to Yuki being a lot less reserved and a lot more open, it’s nice to know that these moments serve a bigger purpose than just being the typical slice-of-life moment that a show is “supposed” to have.
Vampire Bites and Looking Ahead
Even though it may be a running joke at this point, I can appreciate the story not forgetting about Hikari and her vampire issues. Always trying to find some way to put some sexual undertones into it, it was surprising just how little there was during HIkari’s impromptu contest. At least, there was surprisingly little until Takahashi-sensei accidentally let his words come out in just the wrong way at just the wrong time.
In any case, I’ll catch you guys next week. See you then!
