The drama club has its members… which just happen to be the cast of the show, as their recruiting efforts were unable to convince anybody else to join (if only they had Nagisa) – but regardless, there’s more than enough members to put on their first play of the season. It’s a love story – big surprise there – which involves a guy… and a girl! So the search for the heroine begins. It’s not anyone from the club – they’re all too shy to do it, so Hiiragi has to scour the school for his girl. We find out late in the episode that the girl is the rich girl who also happens to play piano, admired by all but not befriended by any, but she seems to be a nice girl anyway. All girls voiced by Noto Mamiko are nice.
Another storyline progressing along in this episode is the Kazuki x Eriko bit, which still baffles me time and time again. Still, Kazuki (unknowingly) finds the balls to ask her on a date – he wants to prove to her that there’s better food out there than the crap she’s been eating, and she stubbornly agrees to go. Hey, how about soccer chick?
Finally, we have Kai x Mao, which is even more baffling, as Kai continues to seem like the guy that has no idea what he’s doing so puts on that façade of coolness just cuz he’s tall and kinda good looking. Well, at least it worked on this dumb girl Mao. In the back alley of the jazz club, he grabs her and gives her one of those “omg what’s going on!” kisses, to which she endures the length of, but immediately runs away afterwards in a flustered blur of euphoria. Yep, that’s all it takes to bring this tease of a girl to her balking knees.
The drama club finds their heroine, Kazuki asks Eriko on a date, and Kai molests Mao in a dark alley. In the Kimikiss world, I suppose you would call this an epic episode?
This means that the show is gonna end on 13 eps, right? Please?
