Start of this episode was just hell no. Teachers were teaching in methods that were unethical in every sense. In half this week’s episode I didn’t know what was going on and the other half was boring. Not my favorite so far from this series. This is all going to end so messy now that we have four girls in Natsuo’s lineup.
Japanese Original Title: 今ここでキスしみてなさい
Natsuo helps Rui take a look at the school’s clubs and they stumble upon the literary club. Natsuo find a book he’s interested in and borrows it without permission. Upon returning the book, president of the club Mui and advisor Kiriya catch Natsuo out. Natsuo is forced to join the literary club.
An Ethical Teacher: Hell no to Kiriya touching Natsuo like that; my mind went blank. Why add a creepy ass teacher like Kiriya; his presence is pointless. He is dishing out unethical advice, especially the moment trying to get Mui and Kiriya to kiss. It was a peer pressure move that sends all the wrongness your way. WHY include this behavior in Kiriya’s character! Keeping him ‘normal’ would have made perfect sense. Sends all logic out the window leaving nothing but confusion as to why include his character in this plot. A normal teacher, plain, boring would have done the job. But no. The series mixed the complexness and messiness it already is in.
Owner Advice: Rui asking for love advice from Natsuo’s friends boss utterly bored me while watching. I’m happy Rui released her true feelings that have been damn obvious since the beginning for Natsuo. But while mustache guy raving on about his ‘gangsta’ days was boring and I did not care for.
Mice Mui: Mui’s character is so sweet, charming, and likeable, right? What is she going to bring really to all of this? Answer me that. Because I don’t care for her. Her character made no impact for me, she’s just there. Oh wait another girl for Natsuo to go kiss.
Date Time: Episode ends on an awkward note with Hina asking Natsuo on a date. Haha this will be interesting.
I’ll understand if you drop this series now people but I’m in for the long haul of this disaster the series is steering into. Things are not going to end well. We have four girls, two which don’t even matter, making a brief moment of distraction for Natsuo – Mui was thrown in the deep end by ass teacher Kiriya. I’m confused why Momo and Mui are even in this series. Forget his pending, unrequited love for Hina. Let’s use other girls.
If anything, Rui and Natsuo can get together because the pair is better. I might not even get my wish as Hina’s kindness towards Natsuo is doing more harm than good. The woman is so damn selfish now. At the end of the episode, she suggests to Natsuo ‘let’s go on a date’; sly woman. Every kind word that comes out of Hina’s mouth makes me want to zip it shut.
This week’s episode wasn’t my favorite. It felt that the plot drove off course with this literary club crap detour, an unethical teacher whose presence I don’t care, and the introduction of another girl who brings nothing. On top of all, we had Hina’s selfish request to take Natsuo out. The cracks of complexity are seeming out now and my care factor is going down fast now. Far deep in now with this series, soap opera drama like this will always be entertaining.
