「そう、髪型はツインテールに」 (Sou, Kamigata wa Tsuinteeru ni)
“Yes, I Have Twin Tails”
This past season, I don’t think I’ve laughed as hard as I did today. Besides the jokes and the great fanservice shots, I never expected regular party games to grab my attention as well as these did. Things like Jenga and Twister were never this fun when I played it!
With Ayumu off at school, it was nice seeing how everyone interacted with each other when he wasn’t there. Almost like a game night (except during the day) the group started playing things like Jenga and Twister. Let me say, I never knew that Jenga blocks could be stacked in such a fashion. I guess it’d be more like Jenga architecture rather than plain Jenga right? I was a little disappointed to see such an awesome structure end up as a tower of vertically stacked blocks — but the question of how they managed to get Jenga blocks arranged in such a fashion still blows my mind away.
I didn’t really understand the Mahjong part since I have no idea how Yuu managed to get 9 of the same pieces. Having just learned how to play, isn’t she supposed to have a pair somewhere in there? But what was hands down the highlight of game night had to be when they started playing twister. With the camera panning to some spectacular angles for both Sera and Haruna I think I became too busy watching to really pay attention to the actual game of Twister.
While I was ready for all the fanservice, I wasn’t ready for the hilarious jokes that stem from Orito and Ayumu’s friendship. I personally don’t think I’ve seen a character that’s as bad with girls as Orito. Somehow his perception of girls is just so far off that it’s funny. Watching him think he’s better than Ayumu with girls when he’s actually much worse just cracks me up. Combined with Ayumu’s witty inner dialogue and his internal fight against the feeling of embarrassment from Orito’s stupidity, I was cracking up every time Orito did something stupid.
I was on the verge of dying as I watched Orito continue to make a fool out of himself — which is why I was surprised when he suddenly got serious. From what seemed like a normal text message turned into something much more serious. In the form of an underclassmen named Kyoko who survived after being attacked by the serial killer roaming around town, Ayumu was finally able to get some information about his killer. The surprising part is that the description is an emotionless killer who wears armor, which fits Yuu perfectly. Other then feeling a little suspicious about why Kyoko would spill all of her feelings on a whim, I can’t imagine a necromancer who blushes like this could be a serial killer. Can you?!
