I called it! When I saw Nagase sighing last week, I knew that there had to be something traumatic enough that could have created a hole in her heart large enough for a loose soul to hide inside of it. But besides the unknown overarching problem of what happened in her past as the captain of the basketball team, it looks like things are only going to get worse from here on out.
After such a warm welcome from all the students, it was surprising to watch them all turn their backs on Nagase so easily. Who would have expected that the cute and perky student teacher would ever get hit with words designated for teachers who are actually heartless jerks? In all honesty, it felt a little weird watching things take such a drastic 180 degree turn all of a sudden. While it does ramp up the drama level, the whole situation still felt a bit forced. It’s almost like everything that’s happening is just to give Keima the opportunity to somehow escape the fate of those doomed to attempt the “teacher’s route”.
While I wouldn’t mind having this show span across a couple more seasons, seeing how the first season only covered about a month and there’s still an entire year left before school ends, I felt a little relieved that Keima did manage to find a way to skip the length involved with capturing a teacher. At first, it really looked like he’d end up having to do things at Nagase’s pace. You can’t really blame him though, since I don’t think I’ve seen anyone ever go through so much hassle just to try to understand Keima. While her thinking may have been a bit off, her actions were really cute. A pink PFP and holding it upside down? Genius.
With the conclusion to this arc set for next week, I’m actually really excited to see how Keima manages to deal with his current predicament. With Nagase still being his teacher, there’s an endless amount of ways for this ending to be super awkward. But at the same time, can you imagine if Keima managed to transform that awkwardness into something special? Imagine how popular Keima would get for getting together with the cute student teacher! Nagase isn’t that old and she is pretty good looking right? I suppose only time will tell, unless you’re a manga reader. In which case, I’d respectfully ask you to please utilize spoiler tags.
P.S. I wanted to quickly say sorry with how late my posts have been. I take pride in normally getting them out as quick as possible, but with work piling on 10+ hours every day with no day offs in sight, it’s been pretty rough. So to everyone, thank you for reading my posts even with how late they’ve been. Till next time!
