Ahh~~~ she so cute, and Tamura Yukari is using her voice to her utmost potential.
First off, <3 to WinD for releasing ep.9. This marks the start of the Tatarigoroshi-hen, where Satoko is poised to be main focus this time. This arc is also quite famous for single-handedly establishing the Suki Suki Satoko faction and I would love to see how.
The short prelude that follows the start of every arc is much less gorier this time, but still as shocking as the rest. This time round, we jump to the time where K1’s parents leave him home alone and he’s forced to make his own dinner, but almost burns the house down if not for the timely appearence of Satoko-chan. I’m starting to feel the force of the SSS here.
Other stuff happens as well, as the disappearence of Satoshi is clearly told here, as well as the death of Satoko’s parents. Kantoku, who was mentioned briefly in the first arc is revealed
to be a pedo as well, and he turns out to be the doctor and the manager of the baseball team.
This arc also seems to contain less on the funnies, although there is still that Keiichi with a golf club part, and seems to be much more serious and tragic in tone from the previous ones. Rena is back with her emo facial distortions here, which we have surely all grown to have love (and fear) for.
