「ちょっと怖い先輩」 (Chotto Kowai Senpai)
“The Senior Who’s Kind of Scary”
With everything from questioning about penis sizes to bringing out her big gun, Korone is quickly proving to be my favorite character to watch in this series. Hard to imagine that she can edge past the tsundere fundoshi-wearing Junko, but with the way she teases Akuto, I can’t get enough of our green-haired Liladan. It’s not everyday you’ll see a girl, android or not, tease a guy about wanting to touch her ass and saying it’s not illegal to do so. Watching Akuto get all riled up at the thought of that yet still pull Korone’s tail to turn her off made for some good laughs, while Keena’s obsession with rice was just… weird. Aside from those two, I was happy to see the formal introduction of student council president Lily Shiraishi (Hirohashi Ryou), vice pres Ootake Michie (Taketatsu Ayana), treasurer Kamiyama Kanna (Mizuhara Kaoru), and secretary Arnoul (Kotobuki Minako), who are comprised of two of the remaining three K-ON stars featured in this series.
The actual plot we had this time around was somewhat weak though, mainly because I didn’t buy how easily Junko sided with Akuto in his newly appointed disciplinary committee position after Keena simply told everyone that Junko secretly likes him. Don’t get me wrong, I love the whole flustered tsundere look as much as the next person, but Junko barely tried to convince the mob that this wasn’t merely a lover’s quarrel. As for Fujiko and her brother’s talking head (Toriumi Kousuke), I’d be lying to if I said I wasn’t disturbed with how she fawns over it in her underwear, though I’m not opposed to hearing Itou Shizuka make those orgasmic-like whimpers in the process. It’s even better when her drug backfires via Keena’s rice that Korone shot into the crowd, leaving her at the mercy of a bunch of horny girls. I mentioned before how I didn’t mind the censorship in this series and that scene reemphasized just why that is, as it basically covered next to nothing at all. (lol)
In addition to seeing Akuto’s demonic self continue to surface, it looks like we’ll be seeing more of Teruya Eiko next time around, who I’m rather looking forward to seeing because she’s played by Tomatsu Haruka. Interestingly enough, Haruka got cast over Satou Satomi who played Eiko in the drama CDs, thus breaking the five for five K-ON members we would’ve had here. Not that I mind or anything of course, as I’d take Haruka over Satomi any day of the week. Sorry Ritsu!
