「あけおめだよ, 人の上に立つ器, どう○い, それを洗うなんてとんでもない」 (Ageomedayo, Hito no Ue ni Tatsu Utsuwa, Dou*i, Sore wo Arau Nante Tondemonai)
“It’s Happy New Years, What it Take to Stand Above Someone, Vir*in, I Can’t Believe You’re Washing That”
SYD*, why do you do this to me? Just like the first season, you throw this wicked curveball trying to get my hopes up. Except I know you’re going to just troll us like last time *_*
It just never gets old, does it? If there’s one thing that SYD* does right, it’s how they portray most of the cultural events throughout the series. While they do sometimes blow things out of proportion, you always get the feelings that certain event would bring. At the same time, they also did a great job at giving everyone some time to shine. From the Suzu fans and the Uomi lovers all the way to the Hata fanatics, just about everyone got some well deserved screen time in this second to last episode. If anything, Mitsuba probably got the most out of all the side characters which was actually kind of nice especially since we haven’t seen or heard much from her.
Valentine’s Day & White Day
Even though I was wishing for more deredere from the skit, I’ll admit that it was still fun to watch. The high points definitely being when Suzu attempted to become a tsundere only to get misunderstood and Tsuda getting caught in another one of Uomi’s traps. The former almost brought a tear to my eye after I thought about how sad Suzu must have felt afterwards and the latter was just adding fuel to a fire that I didn’t even know had started.
Tsuda and His Dirty Squid
I don’t have much to say about this except Hata is the best troll of Winter 2013. Totally embracing the whole “sorry, not sorry” ideals of this generation (that makes me sound so old, haha), I really wish Tsuda took the opportunity to smack her across the face or something.
The Lure of a Romantic Clusterfuck
The one thing that I’ve always wanted from this show ever since its conception was for Tsuda and someone to hit things off and create some emotional tension. While everyone’s secret feelings for him have been hinted at and even at times exposed, I came to a mutual understanding that this is a gag-show first and anything else second.
But after the last few minutes of the episode, SYD effectively skipped all the nonsense that you’d need to create a romantic pentagon and literally gave us everything I’ve wanted to see for the longest time. All of Tsuda’s potential love interests watching an overly touchy Uomi get a bit too close to him? While it’s nothing new, the way they presented it feels like that something amazing might happen next week.
That said, even with the makings of a romantic clusterfuck ready to be exploited at a moment’s notice, I can’t help but feel a little nervous that it’s all a ploy. Because, I don’t know, SYD does this to us every, single, time they bring up something like this. But who knows? Maybe because it’s the season finale, someone will finally man up and do something about their feelings (Haha, yeah right).
- That moment when Suzu jokes about the price of the Mystery Bags being too expensive, but meant that they were out of her reach.
- That moment where Kotomi tries to make Tsuda look like a sis-con.
- That moment Nene tries to instruct us how to use a dildo.
- That moment we learned just where Umoi’s V-line was.
