It’s summer and that means Mizuho is trying out swimsuits in front of Mariya and Ichiko. The two girls like the one with the pareo, but the main problem is that Mizuho can’t wear the school swimsuit. Mariya’s solution is to have him get out of P.E. class by pretending that he’s having feminine problems. This works for the first day, but by the third day, rumors start spreading that Mizuho is boycotting swimming class. These rumors reach Takako, so she confronts him about it, wondering why someone with his rare athletic ability would do such a thing. Takako has come to the conclusion that Mizuho is lying, which causes Mariya and Mizuho to fear that he’s been exposed. Luckily, Takako only thinks that Mizuho is hiding the fact that he’s a bad swimmer. Mariya harps on the idea and concocts a story on how Mizuho is actually afraid of the water, suffering trauma from an incident when they were young. She adds that everyone has something that they dislike and points out Takako’s fear of frogs. This causes Takako to remember that it was Mariya who hid frogs in her desk a long time ago. Their argument intensifies after Takako says that she won’t allow the Elder to give up without trying and Mariya raises the topic of Takako abandoning her club activities to lead the student government. It eventually leads to them deciding to settle things with a swimming competition.
It is later in Mizuho’s room that Mariya reveals that Takako is a daughter of the Itsukushima Group that rivals Mizuho’s family’s Kaburagi Group. Ichiko gets confused at the Kaburagi name because Mizuho’s family name is Miyanokouji – just like his mother’s. As it turns out, Mizuho is actually using his mother’s maiden name at this school. In any case, Mariya feels that she and Takako are destined to fight each other sooner or later, which she considers to be an unchangeable fate. In the ensuing days, Mariya and Takako start training hard for the match. In class, Mizuho notices how tired Takako is, so he invites her to eat lunch with him. He is worried about her health, but, like Mariya, Takako also considers this confrontation to be fate. She reveals that the track and field team once invited her to join, but at that time there were also the elections for the new student council president. After thinking about it, Takako had turned down the track team’s invitation. Having been on the track team, Mariya hadn’t forgiven her for that and has since treated Takako as a traitor who sold her soul for the student council. Mizuho realizes how Takako decided that it was impossible to handle both club activities and the student government, but Mariya is the one who still doesn’t understand.
Under the rays of the sun, Takako soon faints into Mizuho’s arms, and so he ends up resting her head on his lap. Kimie freaks out when she sees them together, but Mizuho takes charge and orders her to get a wet handkerchief or towel for Takako. Having gotten to know her better, Mizuho decides that he likes her. When the day finally comes for their match, Takako and Mariya find all the girls gathered to cheer them on. Though they are still competing, the presence of everyone else diffuses the tense atmosphere and both girls end up having a lot of fun. It is sometime later in the summer that a vacationing Takako gets a letter and a photo of the girls at the beach from Mizuho saying that she inspired him to start getting used to the water.
I had wondered if they were going to have a swimsuit episode and how they were going to handle that. As it turns out, Mizuho somehow looks amazingly like a girl, in both the chest and the hips. All I can think is that it’s a trap!
Mizuho’s proportions aside, this episode had its share of humorous moments and still managed to be a serious Takako episode. Most of those funny moments were in SD, including Mariya’s hilariously exaggerated story about how Mizuho became afraid of water. The Takako stuff made me dislike Mariya for not giving Takako more of a chance, but I’m sure we’ll get a Mariya episode to make up for that before the series is over. Speaking of which, this episode marks the halfway point of this 12-episode series. Only six more episodes of gender-bending confusion to go! 🙂
I for 1 am impressed…
How many estrogen pills was mizuho taking to have breasts without being fat?
A trap, arrr, and yet it’s so *smoothly* set up
The hell with his perfect “breasts”?!
F*** that is WRONG!!!!
How he get this breasts ??? this a man or women XD ??
lol, plenty of fanservice and i didn’t he got real breasts? ,_,;
I am starting to wonder about the breasts too …
omg, it’s a tranny!
Greatest trap ever made by japanese animation people… best scene since Koujiro’s little attemp of winning a beauty contest in Pokemon 9 years ago… American TV, you couldn’t show that… but Japan could!
oh yea..i remember about that one. it was banned from american tv
this is so wrong…. SO WRONG… i cannot accept this, is THIS supposed to be a man???
This is evil.
Well, that figures. He’s a pre-op
I can’t believe it. Damn. I can’t believe it!
lol….maybe he got breast surgery^^
awesome. and yet….so wrong. aw heck, fap first worry later. 🙂
Judging from the screenies, this is one very funny episode! =p
I vot OtoBoku anime of teh year…
Thats either very good fake breasts, or they are real.
ZOMG how did they pull this off?!?!?!?!?!
Yes my faith in this series has been renewed :D. So much perfect trappiness :D.
I hate this show since the first time i red about it. First i was like, wow this is a dream going to a girl school and you get to see them bare naked without ever get caught. But then i saw the first ep in this blog: a bishounen that looks like girl and acts like one so i stepped on the break there. BAD BAD BAD SHOW!!!
I don’t know whats what no more, the only remaining thing that points to her being ‘him’ are her own words and the yet unknown content under her pants.
Is it a new technology -..-* breasts……
lol…enuf about the fake breast looking extremely like real ones….
Science does wonders…..
Saw that in a picture on internet, but thogught it was some random art from the series… Now that is really weird. got see how that became possible… Anyway… Fun show 🙂
Does Takako suspect something at the end? (looking at the picture)
HIS BODY is WRONG in so many ways. Why are people still watching this!!??
What’s wrong with Mizuho!?
Regardless of how fake/real/immensely disturbing his breasts are, the real problem is that hourglass shape — boys simply can not have that in-out shape without help (i.e corsets), they aren’t genetically made to have a cinched waist and child-bearing hips. I find that to be far more confusing (and annoying, if he really is male) than breasts.
But of course, I’m female, so I notice that sort of thing. 🙂
OMG! How the hell did they managed to do that!?
Exactly! thats is SO disturbing… I simply can’t accept that someone with that waist-and-hips combination is a male… I refuse to acknowledge Mizuho’s sex!! >.
wow funny, it is focus about takako, mizuho, and mariya:)
Everyone should be more like “Damn she’s hot” instead of “That’s disturbing”.
Because like that other guy said, you’re only “told” that he is a boy.
This is SO EVIL!!! 😥
/fap fap fap
Hmm does anyone know if i should actually start watching this or not, cuz from what Ive read of a few posts the womanliness of the guy just may creep the livin’ bejesus out of me.
Is it hilarious or sumtin?
well he still looks hot. BUT STIll its just plain WRONG!
uhhh im a bit creeped out with mizi havin boobs. i mean mizi is a guy right?????
*thoughts flash through mind* i DO NOT want 2 kno how he got those
the only real reason to watch this show is to see how far they will take this gag and to see if that will make you gag.
Bleh this searies is getting subbed slow xD but man, when mizuho so worked up about being caught…. he like looks EXCATLY like a girl enough alrdy wth!!
Nothing under his bottom?? I mean nothing jud-out????? This is so wrong…. 😆
Don’t think too hard. Just go with your natural instincts. 😀
I really think the writers are exaggerating ALOT with that MAN-I-WANT-TO-LOOK-LIKE-A-WOMAN
I mean BOOBS!!??? And they don´t even try to explain the thing here!!!That´s the most amazing ” LET´S PASS THAT PART ” CRAP on the story part I´ve ever seen on animes like this one!!!OK..OK…If HE(lol) wants to cut his “THING” off it´s his problem to deal…but “MAGICALY” appearing BOOBS???????????????This is the real thing I WANT TO SEE ON THIS ANIME:
Not A MAN WITH A MAHOU SHOUJO BOOBS T_T…I think I´ll nickname this anime to HITMAN
” REBORN ” 😀
y dont we just say he got hit with an alien ship and got turned into a woman or something
cuz he/she /dunno wat to say nemore/ is just too hot
after seeing the screenshots, my only reaction is…
What is going on these days with trap-sans. At least jun has no boobs for a change.
mehmeh calm down everyone
Show Spoiler ▼
dude this is some bad dream or somthing
and 50 out of 50 posts are about Mizu’s “breast”
and it’s sunday 2moro… where’s my holy water
x_x Ahhh! the burning is god’s forgiveness.
This kinda explains why she reacts to her breasts being groped.
That ain’t no woman! It’s a man, baby! Yeah!
This show is funny as watching rollerbladers fall after I put a stick in their path.
Were can i get subs of this? i guess i wanna see even if it is for the ecchiness, hopefully its not all just of that one guy/girl/whoknows.
Hey, at least Mizuho looks cute. Not look awful at all. About her being a man, I guess it’s OK, it’s quite common in Japanese anime.
wait… mizuho said that he likes takako…
does that means he going for the takako path???
what will happen to shion now?!
Truth is stranger than fiction, me boyas.
Now who’s confused even more? 😀
i hope mizuho is real genuine boy, but it is don’t matter to me, because i love this anime, it is very funny…:)
Guys, lets move on to better things. >,>
Can’t wait for another ep of OtoBoku
It’s anime. That explains EVERYTHING. 🙂
Well, I have to admit, Mizuho does have a great figure for a guy. He sure does bring a good light on the issue of cross-dressing *points to topmost screenshots*.
Somehow, with the series at its halfway point, Mariya’s still left out. Hopefully her story would commence next week.
Goddam! Some girls can’t even get that body!…and this is a guy?! This anime is so wrong on so many levels…I am starting to wonder if I am gay now!
i just surprised… His breast??? it’s impossible omg!!!
Guys, come on. That’s an anime. No matter how exaggerate this show can be, just cross your fingers and enjoy the show. Stop whinning how wrong his boobs can be. It would be more disturbing if he had muscles, believe me.
For me about his boobs, they are pretty. If I had a body like that I would molest myself everyday +..+”
I’m assuming Mizuho’s wearing fake breasts, attached with some sort of glue. ^^;
Man, I wonder if he is a “girl” pretending to be a “boy” pretending to be a “girl”… Nevermind…
IT’S A TRAP!!!
Onii chama has breast! Σ(゜д゜;)
Fap first worry later
What? Only 13 episodes? Aw, no fair…
Somehow I think Mizuho is wearing some very very fancy body suit… somehow… >.
I bet mizuho’s boobs are somehow like randou’s in pretty face. Anyway, nevertheless, its better to overlook everything watch on. But man, i love this show. However wrong you guys look at it, its still anime. but always remember the fact that its a trap afterall…lol
>>ForsakenLight: but always remember the fact that its a trap afterall…lol
It is bobby trap
wth is those breast…they should have jaz made this anime girlxgirl coz its exactly whats happening…whats the point of having a guy who looks exaclty a girl or better and acts like agirl
>>Xellos^_- at 1:44 pm on November 12th, 2006
>>It is bobby trap
Can’t believe I didn’t think of that first. Booby trap! lolol
…as for MizuHO’s breasts…
…they make perfect sense to me…
…what I’m really confused about though…
…is how the Hanajima clone got into MizuHO’s little cliche…
Now i’m worried, if they take panty shots.. and doesn’t have the thing then wtf did they make a sex change before making him join the school o_o
this series and happiness! brain damaging everyone XD
better not think about that he’s a guy if you want to be completley sane guys
My brain finally reorganized things and has determined that Mizuho, for the time being, shall be classified as a dick girl. Because Mizuho-oneesama is only interacting with other girls, there’s no problem with mental images at all!
The trap has been disabled! Oh wait! I mean Upgraded to level 2!
Prepare all anit-trap bunkers!
Ide hit it… bring on the /d
All of these nose-bleeding moments and Mizuho’s d*** has no “response” at all =.=”
So…Nice shot of Shion huh.
well..what should I say.. mizuho took quite everything from his mother.. ^_^;
Those are fake breasts. They say early in the show that they got him some of the best fake breasts you can buy… lol
The sub group is slow, i have the raw but my group is not a speed subber group not have not been active some time and only release our sub in IRC. Our group may take this anime to sub but it will be only little bit faster only around 3 to 4 day faster but the quality will suck. If our group decide to speed sub this anime i will release the IRC address ok.Bye for now.
PS: Hey Tien Guan how are you doing, back to Malaysia yet. I may need you to help to sub this anime.
Maybe the one drawing the anime forget that he is a guy.Sometime this happen.
LOL. It’s call the art of illusion! Go ask Mana!
Well either the ghost gave him ta-tas or it’s the whole best fake breasts money can buy. He looks cute as a girl, great figure. I’m a little disappointed they didn’t find a way to put him in a bikini and have him fight it. He sure seems to be ok with the whole thing.
errr, now he has tits?
i seemly wanna know…did mizuho have some real breast or what…
its seem real to me…but in fact he is a boy…how do he get it
This is an old post, but I wanted to say I had the same reaction to Mizuho’s figure as everyone else. I wanted a trap, not a girl who says she’s a boy!
Anyway, I’ll add that the scene where Mizuho tries to tell the coach he’s menstruating was really fucking funny.
