Myself;Yourself 04


In before; “Sana is a RORIKON!!!”

Ah yes, the token loli character of Pronouns is introduced this episode, Mochida Hinako, and yes, she is 10 years old, not a “16-but-looks-like-11” character.

Episode starts with Hinako getting saved from bullies by Syuusuke, passing by after his kendo practice. Immediately, she develops a crush on Syuusuke, and starts to stalk.. er, I mean join Sana and their gang everyday after school.

Soon after, Hinako enlists the help of Sana and Aoi, to help her in her first love, making Sana ask Syuusuke his types of women, etc, etc, and Aoi helping Hinako realize Syuusuke’s ideals, which mainly fall flat. Finally, Aoi tells Hinako to flat out confess to Syuusuke, so with the help of Sana, they try to set up a date between Hinako and Syuusuke at the aquarium.

The plan goes on smoothly, but Syuusuke rejects Hinako’s confession, saying that he has someone else that he’s concerned about so he can’t commit himself to any relationships. Hinako tries to hold back her tears but Sana valiantly hugs her and lends her a shoulder to cry on, saying that even adults cry at moments like this.


+20 brownie points for Sana here.

Surprisingly an awesome episode, and they’ve stuffed quite a lot of development for Hinako in just one episode, from her introduction, her attempts to attract Syuusuke and the final confession and rejection, which was paced pretty nicely for so much story in just one episode. Although I was a bit let-down that the episode was more focused on Sana as the main male than Syuusuke, because I expected it to be a Syuusuke-centered episode as well from the preview last week.

Well, Sana did a pretty nice job himself this episode, with his support of Hinako. He sure gained a lot of brownie points as a “dependable older guy friend” character lol. I especially liked when he ordered the kid’s set to help Hinako’s collecting of mascot keychains and at the end, when he let Hinako cry on his shoulder (in a figurative sense).

One thing though… I wonder if Syuusuke has feelings that are more than just sibling love for Syuuri…. Well, I might be thinking too much, but this episode is a bit too hinting of that….

Next week on Pronouns, Nanaka in miko-fuku! Wai~~~

    That friend is probably Nanaka. Shuu’s definitely aware of whatever that’s happened to her.

    “I wonder if Syuusuke has feelings that are more than just sibling love for Syuuri….”

    I’ve been getting weird vibes from the twins ever since I first saw the OP in episode one. And every episode since has been increasing those vibes.

    Major vibe-giving points:
    1. Shuri has, of yet, shown no interest in Sana. This is despite the fact that she is a major female character and Sana is a harem lead.

    2. Last episode when both Sana and Shuu displayed a rather high level of dismay at Shuri’s lack of a bust she gets mad a *Shuu* and not Sana. It is a ‘well known fact’ that all women will get pissed with any man that does not properly appriciate their bust line, be they relative or not, but to choose the relative when there is another–non-related–male is a little odd.

    3. The extremely obvious way in which Shuu was describing the features he liked in a girl as things that Shuri did not possess. That was so very tsundere of him.

    4. There’s something just off about the scene in the OP with Shuu, Shuri, and the clock.

    Those twins give off incest vibes like crazy. I hope it’s my imagination. But then, the older siblings in Nanoha gave me those vibes as well, and, despite people telling me it was my imagination, I was (sorta) right.

    One more funny fact on this episode was the preview for next episode; with Syuuri makign the voice comment… like Rika would do for Higurashi. That’s why that Sana points out something about mistaking the TV show LOL.

    Remember first episode at the beginning when Sana was abord the train and we could see Syuusuke running after him, trying to tell something… maybe that has something to do with your theory.

    Good episode indeed.

    actually it’s the same seiyu but the preview joke theme was xxxHolic with Rika’s same voice in Higurashi.

    I was wondering if the preview was a Higurashi reference, but it didn’t feel quite right. I haven’t yet seen xxxHolic, but I guess I’ll believe that. ^^;

    Shuusuke and Shuri definitely have something going on; I just know it. Unless it’s just a “skinship” bonding that Nanoha, Fate, and Hayate supposedly have. =3

    Much love for Hinako; she need not give up her DFC though~

    And I wonder what Aoi said the PTA would do….

    I read that Shuusuke had something for Aoi… Its just that every trait Shuusuke listed was one that Aoi had and it would be very ironic, and somewhat cliche, since Hinako was depending on her for help.

    Personally i liked the scene in the first screenshot since it brought out the frenzied Chiyo-chan voice when Aoi freaked out =P
