「ふがしとふがしと…／グリコとグリコと…」 (Fugashi to Fugashi to…/ Guriko to Guriko to…)
“Fugashi and Fugashi and… / Glico and Glico and…”
“How can we encourage as many ero-doujins as possible?” asks one writer. A second writer stands up: “I have an idea.”
The Fugashi of Oral Fixation
This show has one hell of an oral fixation, especially when it comes to Hotaru. Not that I’m complaining. The ending joke of the fugashi challenge skit was obvious from the get-go, though I’m glad it was You-san who walked in on Coconutsu, instead of Saya (probably when it was Hotaru who was blindfolded and tied up); I have no problems with the occasional unintended pervert joke, but variety is nice, and it would have ended up being twice this episode anyway.
But beyond that, it was just fun to see them compete. Did you notice Hotaru’s I-found-a-worthy-challenger orgasm face? Or her fluffy happy face? But if this skit did anything, it was probably spawn more doujinshi. Though maybe they’re not needed, because that scene was suggestive enough. Oh my.
On the other hand, the second half of the episode was a long buildup to the obvious joke, but it wasn’t zany enough on the way. Doing math while running and eating candies for energy is silly, yeah, but they needed to go farther to make this work for me. Alternately, they could have zagged where we expected them to zig at the end, and have Saya not get angry, or have Coconutsu madly explain that Tou was the one who modified his drawings—and have her listen, and get angry at her brother instead. Without one or the other, it was too much time for too little payoff.
This skit was also the first time I thought Dagashi Kashi had gotten flagrantly infomercial-like, as opposed to talking about candy because it (via Hotaru and others) really loves candy. The 1921 line in particular came out of nowhere, and led nowhere. Ah well. A few misses are to be expected.
tl;dr: @StiltsOutLoud – Blindfold, check. Ribbon to tie wrists, check. Thick, long, pink … what? What are you looking at? #dagashikashi 04
- “Now, stick it in my mouth.” Hotaruuuu!
- If Hotaru could do the leg over head baseball pitch every episode, that’d be greeeeeat.
- A thousand doujinshi artists cried out, and began furiously drawing.
- Ponytail Hotaru. Kyon is pleased.
- The best part of the second half: The Mario sounds when they were jumping.
