「嗚呼、さようなら俺」 (Aa, Sayonara Ore)
“Oh, Goodbye Me”
When Ayumu went to school, I was expecting something unexpected, but what we got was on a whole other level from what I was, uh, expecting. I am insanely pleased that no memory wipe occurred, because the hilarity was dialed up to 1,000% this episode, and unlike the previous one, none of it was a rehash of what happened in season 1. Only Ayumu could make crossdressing into something autograph worthy. I’m not entirely sure whether that’s a compliment or not, but it’s definitely funny!
Additionally, we got a lot of movement on the harem side of things. For one, certain haremettes just keep getting cuter and cuter. Tae-chan had me D’AWWWing every time she blushed and talked to Ayumu, and she still managed to deliver a critical strike when she complimented his legs (heh). Tomonori also made huuuge gains in the kawaii department. While I will freely admit that I love a good tsundere, Tomonori’s – or rather, Yukinori’s, as I shall henceforth call her! – deredere act is just so cute to watch. She can keep going “ore, ore” all she wants, as long as she keeps giving me faces like this.
Then on the other, more frightening side, we have Sarasvati. Every time she was on screen – every time – I was cracking up. There’s just something about her red-eyed raep face that gets me every time. We also got some extremely sexy shots of Sera, and some cute – and nearly fatal, if Ayumu wasn’t a zombie – ones of Haruna. Is it bad if I want all of the haremettes to win?
Finally, there was a little bit of plot. Yousei-san was still around and doing her bottle fairy gig, but she didn’t really have much of an effect this episode. Rather, it was Dai-sensei going all Terminator on Kyoko that really made me sit up and pay attention. Dai-sensei has always exuded power by the Death Star-load, but that scene hinted at her possessing a capacity for cruelty to match (though maybe I’m reading too much into that). I still don’t think she’s an antagonist – with how Kyoko acts in the OP, I still firmly place her in that column – but I can’t blame Kyoko for not wanting to get caught. I have a feeling that would not be pleasant for her…and possibly, not survivable.
tl;dr: @StiltsOutLoud – I spent most of this episode clutching my side & literally laughing out loud. Cute haremettes + raep face + mousou Yuu x2 = HNNNG!! #korezon
- I think Haruna’s “Boys, be ambitiousu!” might become my new alarm. Also, dat sidetail was delicious. Yum!
- Other than Dai-sensei’s scene, the insert song was the only thing that made me snap out of pure comedy mode. In a good way, though. I wish they had done something like that during the Orito scene, because I didn’t know I wasn’t supposed to be waiting for a laugh until it was over. Whoops.
- Two imaginary Yuus?? Are…are we going to have a whole Smurf village full of them by the end!? Oh gods, I hope so…though I might die from the moe >_<
- This post is actually under 1,000 words. I’m finally learning brevity! Quick, someone praise me! PRAISE ME OR THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN!! …just kidding 😀 (maybe)
