「危険なアイドル」 (Kiken na Aidoru)
The most interesting part about this episode was that it got a proper OP and ED. The OP had all the rehashed scenes replaced with some new scenes now that the three main girls were introduced. The most interesting part of the OP is where they showcase all the “special” people at their school. We’ve already seen a few of them (like the guy who eats while doing a handstand) but we’re guaranteed to be introduced to some more.
The also ED got some proper ecchi material. As a replacement for DxD though, the ED definitely isn’t as good visually. Nothing beats something as ridiculous as DxD’s ED which was extremely gif-able. The ED showed Ryosuke putting the moves on Lisara where he ends up kissing her. I think the manga and light novel are still publishing so it would probably mean this is anime original. Despite the harem aspect of the show it gives off a one-true-pair feeling. It would probably be better if he ended up with Mina though since she’s normal, knows, appreciates, and cares for him a great deal according to Quele.
I was surprised at the way Lisara handled how she first saw Iria (Fukuen Misato). While they were checking her out in a room on the projector with Mushiyori Muneyo (one of the students that supposedly has a unique “power”). She did give off the slightest hint of knowing her until the very end which I find odd behavior for someone who is their rival. I guess all their past history is something she would rather not revisit.
Muneyo’s unique gift is being able to size someone’s breast just by looking at them. I have to admit it’s an amazing yet utterly uselessly power. I don’t understand how that would translate to having high spiritual energy. In Ryosuke’s case I can understand that it’s like getting aroused. In this case I don’t see how it would translate unless being able to guess someone’s size correctly gave her some kind of thrill. That would just make her a weirdo.

「胸囲の格差社会」 (Kyōi no Kakusa Shaka)
“Bust Circumference Disparate Society”
While he watches Iria in a Merlot Insurance commercial, he forgot that she previously tried to take out himself and Lisara. Ryosuke is really a man who doesn’t think…Or at least he thinks with his genitals at the helm. This isn’t limited to only him since I’ve seen some people act super irrational when it comes to women. I guess when you’re a perverted guy it can’t be helped.
Iria’s explanation of Lisara’s sword coupled with the scenes of some unknown person seems to imply that the clan that has the other half of the sword will at some point make an appearance. Another piece of interesting information seems to be that someone at Merlot wants to ruin Lisara’s chance at finding the person she needs to form a real contract with. Of course in my mind, Ryosuke is already that dude since he has a weird power as it is.
It’s poetic justice that Iria’s boobs turned out to be fake. All she ever did was make Lisara overly self-conscious about the size of her breasts. Even it feels like karma prevailed, I’m kind of bummed out by the fact that the show loses out on its only big-breasted character. Almost every anime has some character with gigantic breasts. Who is going to fill that role in Boku H now?
There are a couple different reasons why Ryosuke’s energy level did rise as much as Iria anticipated. The first reason could have been that since Iria’s boobs where fake, Ryosuke couldn’t get super aroused by them. Another reason could have been that he truly does like Lisara so feeling the woman’s boobs that you like would be far better than touching some random person’s lady lumps. I’d like to think it’s the latter rather than the former. We already know that Ryosuke thinks every woman has things about her that make her special.
