Okay, my fears have been allayed. That was an awesome episode of Minami-ke. While the art was actually rather crappy, but the humor was actually pretty awesome.
Haruka-neesama continues to accumulate more love from me, and we know from this episode that she’s hopeless with maps. I also cracked up seeing her in a specs-mustache mask thing, and her attempt to do a comedy performance in a monkey suit, lol.
Oh yes, that’s Haruka there
Best part of the episode has to be Kana exposing herself fully to Fujioka, inadvertently, thanks to the gender-bender play by Touma and Mako-chan. Fujioka’s expression after he saw that was freaking priceless. I was laughing for a good 5 mins there.
You have gotta see Fujioka’s expression after that.
Still got a few gripes with the art though…. Haruka’s boobs in the onsen were…. suffice to say, scary. Mostly because they FLOAT like this. Maa~~ at the least, the humor in the episode more than made up for it.
The new OP is definitely unexpected, since the tune is rather suited for more serious stuff, it really misled me to think that the series changed genres instead. Some disturbing shots of Hosaka in it too. ED is rather bland for me, but might change after a few more listens. Also, the ED feels out of place too :P.
Overall, I approve of Okawari in general, and hope they’ll keep up with the good work on it. I’ll really have to say the humor level is actually higher than Minami-ke I was.
P.S. : Wow, the phone at their house changed positions and it’s now a rotary-dial phone. Interesting….
