The cleaning scene: When Chihiro started cleaning Ashley’s kitchen and she went all crazy on killing the cockroaches I laughed so much, first because I didn’t expect to be that cool about it, and second because cockroaches are not that easy to kill. That girl is a hero.
Nayu in the zoo: Before I comment on anything else, I have to say that Nayu’s boobs in this episode were out of control! Bouncing everywhere, Jeez… Anyways, Nayu is just… I have no words for her. She went to the zoo and she took photos of all the animals’ d*cks. Probably just for research and inspiration… Yes I’m sure it’s just because of that…
Haruto and his sister: That scene was kind of cute. I mean I was more intrigued by what he was drinking than his tsundere sister’s feeling but okay yeah, that pat on the head was adorable.
Themes & Trivia
Gender Bender: This is what Chihiro is. A gender bender is a person who disrupts, or ‘bends’, expected gender roles. In Asian dramas and anime show, this is a very common element. Why does this happen? To be honest with you, I don’t really have an explanation for this: probably it’s because it can be a good plot twist if it’s not given out easily or the audience doesn’t really know about it, but most of the time it’s pretty apparent and that’s what make people watch the show in the first place or maybe because some people have some kind of fetish over it, or because it’s considered a taboo. By the end of the day, anime is an entertainment media and its purpose is to entertain. After all, putting characters in opposite gender clothes and blending the genders has always been a thing for fanservice.
Finally, it’s official that Chihiro is a girl. I don’t know her reasoning behind all this but I think that probably Itsuki has figured it out already and he is just playing along. I mean come on, in the scene where they go to the aquarium you can see that she has a female figure, you would have to be blind not to realize it. Also Chihiro is growing on me as a character. As mentioned before, the cockroach scene leveled her up in my eyes and also she made me laugh when she was pointing out all the fish and thinking how they will taste like. She is a food fanatic and I love everything related to food.
And one more thing. Poor taxi driver to be witnessing all the family drama and having to hear about Nayu taking photos of animal d*cks. These people must see so much shit in their line of work.
Also, ‘Pandas are like old human men’. NO! Pandas are everything that humans wished to be, they sit on their asses, eat, poop and sleep. That is life.
