Manabi Dropkick!

Manabi Straight

Shimojii no uragirimono!!!!!

Oh. My. God. Another bloody awesome way to kickstart(pun intended) another episode of Manabi. More proof she’s related to Haruhi here, with that awesome dropkick of hers. I wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of that… >.<.

Also, unexpectedly, Aya Hisakawa plays the Aikoh Superintendent. Oh man, how much I’ve missed that alluring voice of hers and she’s really enjoying this role of hers from being deadly serious and bitchy to childishly lovey-dovey in flash. Best part of the show for me must’ve been when she first introduced herself to Manabi at her home, claiming, surprisingly, that she’s her brother’s girlfriend. Awesome… just damned awesome.

Not forgetting my favourite Mei-tan too, she’s totally in to the tsundere tsukkomi role already, playing a nice foil to Manabi’s boke-ness. I think her harisen skills are only second to Chidori Kaname of FMP, with that gravity defying hit of hers that causes instant, on-the-spot backflips.

And “YAY!” for my country being mentioned, XD.

    I really did like the gravity-changing harisen hits in this episode. I think ufotable does a good job at being quirky and at presenting ideas we’ve seen before in new ways. Manabi Straight is showing me that they can do wonderful things when they have fun.

    Haha, I thought the same thing when I saw this. Mei + paper fan ~ Chidori. For me, this is the best show of the season. I hope it doesn’t have a sad ending, but it seems they did some foreshadowing by mentioning how many times Manabi has moved. Hopefully, she won’t have to move to another school again.

    Still needs more Momo though. She has had the best lines in the series so far
    — Mei-tan, you’re such a tsundere.

    — Made in China!

    — Say, Momo, where did you get that suit?
    — The internet.
