「みそじもえ?」 (Misoji Moe?)
I doubt the handful of questions I have, like just how the timeline of this series works, will ever be answered by the time the series finishes next week. But I’m sure glad that the second to last episode has been one of the better ones. Finally giving Chiba some redemption in my eyes, I would have never expected his ass would be the most fearsome thing I’ve seen this season. Even compared to a certain zombie’s pantsu shots, Chiba wins hands down in the male-pantsu rating system I just devised. Not only did he trump all the girls by working a female Santa suit really well, but to go and wear the frilliest pantsu ever, he is probably more man then most real men are. But then to follow up and make Sugisaki wear pantsu that just rubbed against his manhood? He’s so smooth and cruel at the same time.
After Hitoha, I think Miyashita is my second favorite character. Something about her try so hard even when she fails attitude gets me every single time. I mean, when she gets so focused on trying to befriend Hitoha to the point where she’ll rip off Chiba’s pants without a second thought, I’m not sure if I was laughing at what she just did or why she’s doing it. All I know is that watching the tallest girl get stuck under Yabecchi’s desk to “examine” his lower body had me close to tears.
When Kaieda showed up I expected her to be the direct opposite of Yabecchi. Watching her mentally prepare herself to be strict and stern, I thought it’d be really interesting to watch how class 6-3 deals with a real teacher. Unfortunately, when she ends up actually being more of a pushover than Yabecchi, I lost all hope. With the rest of the episode feeling pretty tame, I found the impromptu ending sequence a hilarious way to end this second to last episode. Something about watching most of class 6-3 slide and bounce right off of Mitsuba while classical music is playing brought a whole new light to the whole gag.
