「お姉ちゃんとお茶しよう！／魔女とリンゴとお姉ちゃんと」 (Onee-chan to Ocha Shiyou! / Majo to Ringo to Onee-chanto)
“Let’s Have Tea with Onee-chan! / The Witch and The Apple and Onee-chan”
Mitsuki is great for making Yuu jealous, but I’m still shipping the OT3 of Yuu x Haruka x Onee-chan HNNNG!!
Like I said last time, Yuu has gone from uncertain sexuality to absolutely gay. Now we’ve seen a total switch from the first episode, with Yuu being the jealous one! Is this uneven characterization? I’m not sure. Really both Haruka and Yuu act the same way in this…when they feel they’re being ignored by the other, they get jealous…we just didn’t see this from Yuu as quickly as we did from Haruka. No matter–what’s important is that it was adorable. Luring Haruka away with sweets, headbutting her when she got too close to kissing Onee-chan (when it was just a reading play!)…d’aaaww, jealous Yuu-chan is so kawaii!
Onee-chan’s Big Bangs
There were a few gags centered around Mitsuki-kaichou’s oppai, and I’m going to talk about them because a girl’s rocket launchers contain the hopes and dreams of mankind! Exhibit A: Haruka and Onee-chan being too busty (no such things!) to make their way through the crowd at the coffee shop full of high school girls in their uniforms (also a place full of the hopes and dreams of mankind). poor Yuzu-chan! No worries though, some guys like smaller breasts. They’re a status symbol, a rarity!
What can be said other than these two witches are silly. Personally I’d go with Shizuku because it doesn’t even seem like Yuu is trying to be scary, but then again maybe they’re going for moe Snow White? (That will end up happening anyway because, well, look at them). I did laugh at how popular the witch and the huntsman were. Aren’t girls supposed to want to be Snow White? I for one heartily endorse this change. Play the active, fun roles! Leave the lying-around-and-waiting-passively nonsense to whoever draws the short straw.
Jealous–erh, Disapproving Onee-chan
Misunderstandings in fiction are a double-edged sword. When it’s a Can Not Spit It Out (trope!) situation, ala Nisekoi, it’s not good – that’s a sign of a storyteller stretching out a weak story, and I’d prefer they don’t waste our time. Here though, the misunderstanding is in the service of non-plot critical comedy, and that’s exactly the right way to do it!
To whit, Haruka’s understanding about Onee-chan disapproving of her being with Yuu-chan. This misunderstanding, coupled with Mitsuki-kaichou’s tsundere feelings for Haruka, fueled a lot of the comedy this episode, and I couldn’t be happier! Plus it gave us growling Onee-chan, and oh my, yes. She can growl at me anyday, ifyouknowwhatImean.
Kissing Under The Cape
Hnnnnngggg!! Instead of the lead up we usually get, at the end of the B-part it seemed like the first kiss was more a mistake than anything else. Or not a mistake so much as they were surprised about it themselves…and instinctual action, one that happened before they really realized it. Part of me wonders if this is a sign that their secret will get totally blown sooner rather than later – and I hope it does, because you’re not fooling anyone girls! – but for now I’m going to concentrate on how they were doing that while others were still in the classroom! So bold, these two. You’re definitely going to get found out if you keep that up!
Need More Shizuku x Kotone-chan
One minor gripe: we need more Kotone-chan x Shizuku. No kiss from them since episode 02? What is this crap! *flips table* I want to see more of their refined yuri antics please. I feel we all could use more of that in our lives.
Looking Ahead – Cultural Festival!
Only one real thing to say: there will be a sleepover. My mind cannot wrap itself around how awesome this could be. I…I need to go lie down again.
tl;dr: @StiltsOutLoud – So close, sooo close to that kiss with Onee-chan! At least we still have jealous Yuu, & Onee-chan’s Big Bangs #桜Trick 05
- They’re both thinking they would be the wife HNNNG!!
- That tongue work OH MAN!
- I think Kaede is my stealth favorite for the sneaky, conniving, & mischievous ways she plays with/manipulates Mitsuki. She knows how to get things done!
- Did we just get trolled by chibi Shizuku? Doesn’t matter, had fanservice.
