Thank the Lord that this aired after Ladies versus Butlers, otherwise, I’d have to kill myself. The first episode pleased, and I’m looking even higher for this episode. It will be toned-down, but let’s hope that it doesn’t get too corny and lame. Let’s go.
So we begin the episode with a cheesy childhood memory – a girl is called stupid by a boy, and he explains a history event. And then we get the opening – that was certainly better than the oppai-action. I personally like this opening, because it’s cute, it’s catchy, and it’s fun to listen to over and over again. The commercials are funny to watch too.
Whoa, now we know why she’s being stalked.
Knowledge is power – Himeji ends up being stalked by a mysterious girl. Then we got back to the luxurious class of 2-F. So why did he turn down the trade? No reason, but let’s go back to the A-class representative asking for a battle against F-class. How will that turn out? Wow, A-class looks like a 5-star hotel room. Negotiation between A & F: a one-on-one. And guess who the rep of A-class is? The mysterious blue-haired girl. The loser must do what the winner wants him/her to do. But it’ll be a five-on-five, but class F will be pick subjects. So guess who’s practicing? Everyone but Himeyoshi.
“I’m not the bottom!”
Shimada gets jumped by a orange-hair girl name Miharu who’s from 2D. And Miharu is homosexual. Shimada wants Yoshii to say that she loves him. Hmm, crush anyone? Yoshii catches Himeji writing supposedly a love-letter by himself. We get a short conversation with half the screen revealing Yoshii’s impure thoughts. Haha, denial. Strategy meeting time – I’m not the bottom!
Round One – Shimada versus Twin female-version. (with fanservice shots of… I don’t know the girl version or boy version…). Summon being – math time. Shimada’s math is B-class level, to which Twin-chan says that there’s a reason why it’s A-class. PWNed – A-class wins in one attack.
And that’s the male twin, mind you.
Round Two – Yoshii vs. Miho Satou. I don’t think she’s going to be important, but we get another “show everyone your true strength” scene conversation. LOL but he’s actually… left-handed (um… lol). Class A wins.
This voyeur’s never gone too far.
Round Three – Kouta vs. Aiko. The subject is health (no surprise there) but Aiko say she’s good at health as well, but in a “different way”. Female version of Kouta? Let’s see… she knows from “practical” experiences – to which Kouta gets a nose bleed from her cuteness. Practice versus theoretical – she’s over 400 (446) and goes in for the attack, to which Kouta defeats her with his… 576. Nice! Class F wins!
Fate/Stay Night element.
Round Four – Himeji vs. Kubo. Kubo is number two and the subject is comprehensive. How will things turn out. 3997 points. Wow. Himji’s level is… 4409. Very good. Epic battle scene, in which she revealsthat she likes F class because everyone is friendly and the boy she likes is in the class. F Class win! Round Five – Rep Yuuji vs. Rep Shouko. Are we in for a surprise? Well, the events up til now haven’t been that surprising, since everything conveniently becomes evened out to a tied score until the last round. Let’s enjoy the final battle. Test showdown, not a being fight. The two of them will battle on paper with tests at elementary school level. Remember how Taika Reform supposedly takes place in the year 625? It doesn’t. It’s actually 645. Did she relearn her history? Or did rep-A just remember incorrectly? She writes down 625. Class A with 97 points, and class F are celebrating… but rep-F only gets… 53 points. Failure. And class F ends up trading their desks for cardboard boxes. What a fail.
Childhood friends are coolio.
But I’ll tell you what was not a fail – this episode. It lived up to the expectation of the first episode and was entertaining in all aspects, w/o the use of jumping oppai. I’m only worried that it will become repetitive, but so far, so good. I’ll keep on watching, so keep on enjoying.
