Ninomiya-kun 06


Stuffed Mayu is cute~~. Must be hellish to have a guy who can cook real well.

The trio have been captured and bound in a room, where they discuss who is behind this, while Mayu loses her thoughts on Shungo and Reika kissing each other. Hosaka arrives to save them, and gets Reika Punched for not being able to find out what happened. They proceed to escape, but Mayu triggers a trap and gets shot at, which fortunately turns out to be a BB gun. Hosaka proceeds in front of them after that, and he gets shot as well, but this time, he collapses in a pool of blood.


The soldiers appear and surround them and Reika wants to take revenge but Shungo stops her and escapes. Unable to run far with both of them, he knocks Reika out and tells Mayu to take her and run to safety while he deals with the soldiers. Shungo successfully takes out the chasers, but a mysterious masked woman knocks him out. He is captured and brought in front of the leader, and gets tortured, reminiscing on the past where he defended a girl from being bullied.


Mayu, Saikyou Densetsu. The birth of a devil XD.

Meanwhile, Mayu and Reika seek refuge in a cafe cave and wonder what to do next. Mayu is determined to save Shungo and Reika hatches a plan. She sends Mayu out as a distraction, and Mayu manages to take out all the enemies by triggering all the traps they’ve set, while Reika goes ahead and saves Shungo, but the same masked woman knocks her out.

Shungo is angered and fights with the woman, successfully breaking her mask… only to reveal it’s his sister, pranking him. Shungo looks in disbelief and faints after that. A while later, Mayu wakes up the knocked out Reika and together they escape from the island with Shungo, still worn out. When they all return, Reika expresses her anger at being pranked like that, making it worse that her maid, Shinobu is actually the leader of it. Reika worries about what will happen next, but she still manages a smile.



A nice end to the two-episode beach arc, and it really gave quite some development on to Reika’s character. Man, she’s really endearing :). A new character is also introduced, Shinobu, the token meido-bodyguard with a 100% tsun-tsun on the main character initially. Looks like Shungo isn’t gonna get any rest for a while. Best part of the episode has to be Mayu taking out the soldiers by setting off all the traps herself, not to mention with “The March of the Valkyries” being played in the background. God, I still LOL every time I watch that part. Seriously, Mayu’s dojikko and tennen is so high, it’s a lethal weapon. Good thinking by Reika there, hehehe.

Next episode, well, it’s probably gonna be more hijinks and a real introduction for Shinobu’s character.

    I enjoyed this one too – Reika in “vengeance” mode is definitely endearing. I’m liking her more and more, although admittedly some of that is probably due to Miyuki Sawashiro. Most of it, actually. Not being a fan of visual fanservice (don’t ask me how I ended up watching this show…), it’s actually kinda fun to minimise the screen and just listen to the vocal performances, as if it were an audio drama. Works surprisingly well. It’s also great fun to compare Reika with my favourite other Miyuki Sawashiro role this season – Hagino in Blue Drop. The two ojou-sama extremes. :)

    Oh, and I know it’s just a typo, but it made me giggle – you might want to double check the paragraph after the “demon” picture. I’m pretty sure Reika and Mayu didn’t end up at a conveniently located island Starbucks… ;)

    “…Mayu’s dojikko and tennen is so high, it’s a lethal weapon…” Quoted for truth. That was a wonderful sequence. I was laughing out loud. I suppose this is a very ordinary anime, but there is enough different and interesting about it to keep me watching. And I think some of the performances are really good. Sawashiro Miyuki, of course, but also Kadowaki Maii. This is the best she’s ever done, in my opinion. And since I’ve always liked her, I’m hopeful it will give a further stimulus to her career. I also like Miyata Kouki (Arthur Jones in Emma, Isami in Noein) as Housaka.

    @Haruchin: Whoops, accidental hillarious typo there. Didn’t QC my post properly :P. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Ironically, I dropped BLUE DROP after episode 02. I’ll probably wait for that show to finish then pick it up. Till then, my personal favourite performance for Miyuki Sawashiro this season is definitely Reika.

    @hashihime: Yeah, I didn’t really expect to like Ninomiya to this level, given it’s very much a love comedy harem show. Truly, what sets this show apart are the awesome performances of Mai Kadowaki, who makes some of the most moe-inducing squeals and voice, and Miyuki Sawashiro, totally in her element with the ojou-sama voice.

    It went kinda obvious when Shungo was knocked out that it was just a prank, even the “blood” made the whole thing obvious :(

    To bad, but yes, I enjoyed the episode, most thanks to Mayu and her handywork :)

    I can’t wait until Reika undergoes her Inversion Impulse via her succubi bloodline… and viola. Dark Reika ftw.
