「すっぱい大作戦？／もしかして肝試し!?」 (Suppai dai Sakusen? / Moshikashite Kan Tameshi!?)
“A Sour Plan? / Perhaps a Test of Courage!?”
I knew it! I knew that onee-chan was in love!
Yuu is Totally Gay
First things first – Yuu is totally gay. Not that there was ever a great deal of question there, but there were times where it seemed like she might still be figuring out her sexuality. If so she’s got the question answered through, because this suddenly transformed into Amagami redux. I am not complaining! It just bears noting that if there was ever going to be any complexity in this show, it’s pretty much shot. This is straight, shameless, uninhibited yuri fun. Deal with it!
Spying on Haruka & Yuu
I’ll talk more about Mitsuki in a bit, but for now I’d like to focus on Kaede and Yuzu, because the whole spying-on-Haruka-and-Yuu bit really let us have some more fun with them. For one, it made me realize that Mikan–I mean, Yuzu-chan is at her most hilarious when she’s being abused. She’s just great as the butt of a joke, especially since she’s good-natured and silly enough to not make it seem cruel (usually).
As for Kaede, I didn’t expect her to have the mischievous side necessary to tease Mitsuki like that. Totally not complaining, and it fits in well with her being best friends with Yuzu.
Either way, I enjoyed them spying on Haruka and Yuu, especially since they managed to miss all the hot and heavy stuff in exchange for lighter fare. It was typical but still funny, especially since we got a Yuu sitting on Kotonoe’s lap interlude (seriously, how did they not figure out Haruka & Yuu are gay when they were watching that?) followed by that straddling make out section. I…I need to go lay down.
Spend Some Time With Your Other Friends, Haruka!
It’s funny when Yuzu is the butt of jokes, but come on Haruka, spend some time with your other friends! I know she wanted to do the test of courage (that ended up being a lie…another bit of good misdirection, so good job writers) with Yuu, but poor Yuzu-chan. Which brings me to another point – I would like to see more mixing among the groups, if only to see what kind of comedy would arise when different characters are put together. This ended up working, even if I felt bad for Yuzu.
Onee-chan Loves Haruka
What can I say other than TOLD YOU SO!! Mitsuki is totally crushing on Haruka. Now, I don’t think Mitsuki will pose a serious trhreat to Yuu’s domination of Haruka – Haruka is completely smitten with Yuu and Yuu alone, so the fun Mitsuki brings to the table is mostly in her reactions to Haruka. And that’s enough, because when I realized that Haruka accidentally created a harem of sisters, I realized why she’s so amazing: she’s the male lead we’ve always wished for. She’s funny, perverted, has a way with the ladies, and most of all, she is a girl. (And therefore has boobs.) What more could you want? Nothing, that’s what!
Can’t think, I’ve lost too much blood. Quick, someone…help… *dies from the yuri*
tl;dr: @StiltsOutLoud – I knew it! I knew that onee-chan loved Haruka! Now Haruka has a sister harem, ufufu~ #桜Trick 04
- But seriously, they haven’t figured it out yet? Kaede and Yuzu need to get some glasses.
