「遠慮しちゃう?」 (Enryou Shichau?)
“Show Some Restraint?”

 

Next Episode:
「もう濡れちゃう?」 (Mou Nurechau?)
“Already Wet?”

Impressions:
Either Kanokon’s ecchi-ness has toned down a fair bit or I’ve just grown accustomed to it to the point where it no longer phases me. While the latter case worries me a bit (from a personal standpoint), it was nice to see some plot development progress along, with Minori causing Kouta to awaken his own powers and be the one to fuse with Chizuru. Other than that, I felt that the Nanao twins realizing the wrongs of their ways during this episode also gave Kanokon some more plot/story elements, which as odd as it may sound, made this week’s showing very “normal” and un-Kanokon-like. While the depth of the plot isn’t nearly as profound as many other series, it’s definitely there, so this can go to show that Kanokon isn’t all about ecchi-ness and nothing else.

Next time, it looks like everyone’s headed off for some scorching hot sun, which leads me to believe that this is going to be our obligatory beach episode.

  1. Actually Semtex, I fail to see the point of a beach episode for Kanokon. What with wearing bikini’s and one pieces, this will cause LESS skin to be revealed.

    If only japanese anime had obligatory “clothing optional” episodes.

  2. No, the ecchi-ness of the this episode did drop, they need the extra room for plot movement. As for the hot spring and beach episode, it for the viewers to be able to see them with different clothes other than their usual ones, but inthe case of Kanokon, them WITH clothes for once…

  3. omg… what plot are speaking about, Divine? This “anime” never had such plot :/
    And there are only two episodes left, but still we have a “beach episode” filler. We’re already arrived at the forelast episode and we still have no clue of the reason kouta is so likeable to youkais or a proper ending to his love story with Chizuru. Who the heck is Minori i.e.? We just se random episodes that will eventually finish in 2 weeks, leaving a big “what the hell was this?” on our heads.
    And you all are discussing on skin and clothes… bah >.<

  4. lol unknownvoice ^^” Pity (or lucky) the only 2 lolis, the frog girl and Minori, never appeared naked.
    Maybe there’s still a taboo kanokon hasn’t destroyed yet XD

  5. “We’re already arrived at the forelast episode and we still have no clue of the reason kouta is so likeable to youkais ”

    Its more blatant in the manga but is mentioned in the anime that his scent is quite attractive to them and that it partly comes from his heritage of havign grown up in a land full of nature and that it left a real impact on his very soul or something like that. It might also be this “power” in him that others speak of.

    More than that, it is a soulmate/destiny type of thing that Chizuru was able to sense and was affirmed when she first fully merged with Kouta, something that is supposed to be almost impossible for a fox spirit and human.

    Also Chizuru really likes cute boys more than buff ones.

    “or a proper ending to his love story with Chizuru.”

    Given how long she (and Kouta perhaps) could conceivably live and the nature of the series I don’t see them ever showing a real ending for them. As far as closure this episode gave a bit of that with Kouta proclaiming that he wants to be with Chizuru no matter what.

    “We just se random episodes that will eventually finish in 2 weeks, leaving a big “what the hell was this?” on our heads.”

    It is only supposed to be a look into some of the events from the manga and novels. People can go there for the whole story and more plot.

    GO! ROLLZOMU!!! LOL!

    Also, I loved how 5-tailed Kouta fought. It’s weird though that he couldn’t remember doing it.
