「毎度おさわがせします」 (Maido Osawagaseshimasu)
“Thank you for Always Putting up With Us”
Now that’s what I’m talking about — throwing some curve balls to liven things up!
But before the huge twist occurred, I was surprised how enjoyable this episode was. After finally giving the Observation Club’s members some proper air time, I can’t even imagine how we went so many episodes without their stupid antics. With Sako leading the pack, it was the same good-old “dress up Raika in something that shows off her assets and lure Yuuta into a trap” trick. And even though I don’t understand the point of digging a hole that isn’t deep enough to trap its victim I won’t complain since it provides a prime opportunity for Raika to show off those assets of hers.
On the other hand, I wasn’t terribly happy about the Observation Club coming down to visit Yuuta and his nieces — especially after dreading for weeks about Sako getting the chance to get his meaty hands anywhere on Hina or her sisters! However, I was surprised to discover that Raika is the one I should have been worrying about! Sure, Sako will forever be discriminated for his looks and his lolicon loving nature but at least he’s open about it. In Raika’s case, I was shocked to see her passion for cute things come flying about. Not only does it provide a nice contrast to that awfully strange personality of hers but it makes her shine as a motherly figure doesn’t it?
So after a full helping of Raika, Sora, Miu, and Hina in one episode, what else could be left? Oh that’s right, some really interesting developments in the story! If you remember the shadowy figure that was lurking around throughout the episode, I honestly thought it was just another girl that was going to be added to Yuuta’s unique harem. But as soon as her identity as the landlord was revealed, I was shocked to see how anal she was! Because unlike all those other landlords out there (Chobits or Clannad anyone?) who try to help their tenants, I wasn’t expecting her to evict Yuuta!
With the happy-go-lucky mood ruined by the harsh touch of reality, I’m excited to see where things go from here. Seeing how Yuuta has to figure out how to deal with two young girls who are trying to act well beyond their age by trying to take time off of school, but with the immediate problem of trying to find a new home looming over him as well, I can’t wait to see how he deals with it all.
