Okawari 07

Minami-ke ~Okawari~

Oh yes, it’s meido Mako-chan!!!

More Mako-chan and Touma screentime! Valentine’s Day celebration in the Minami-verse!

Yes, it’s Valentine’s day and Haruka suggests the whole family to make chocolates to give out. Chiaki gladly joins in but Kana decides to be the receiver instead of the giver. Hijinks starts with Yoshida, Chiaki’s other friend, Mako-chan and Touma are invited to make together as well. Haruka-neesama asks Mako-chan who’ll the chocolate she’s making will be given too, but “her” idea of giving it to Haruka is shot down by Chiaki, so he’s forced to give it to himself. Kana, who has been stealing chocolate all day long, gets her just desserts when Chiaki makes a special version for her.

The next day, Fujioka eagerly expects a chocolate for him, thanks to Touma creating false hope for him the day before. Of course, Kana didn’t really made one for him, but he gets his wish granted at the end of the day anyways… even if it was chocolate meant for another guy and subsequently stolen by Kana. Chiaki gives her chocolate to Haruka, in her oh-so-cute “Haruka-neesama is the only one for me” way. Haruka shares her chocolates amongst the girls at school, with a special teddy chocolate for Chiaki as well. Hosaka…. actually baked a chocolate cake with a sculpture to give Haruka… citing that it’s his White Day gift…. which is a month away ^^;;;….

A more humorous episode this week, it marks a return to the more familiar Minami-ke we all fell in love with. Finally Mako-chan gets some deserved airtime, and “his” parts were easily the funniest of the episode. Too bad we didn’t really see much of Touma. Kana is back to the super-annoying self she was, and Haruka isn’t the Lord of Destruction Haruka anymore. Sure hope they go back to this comedy line of narrative :).

    […] Ende. Das es aber noch jemals besser wird bezweifle ich. Mal sehen, ob mich die neuste Episode mit Mako chan als Meido Version doch noch vom Gegenteil überzeugen kann. Wohl eher nicht. Ich kann mich mit der Animation vom […]

    I almost expected an ‘oh-ho-ho-ho’ type of laugh after the Baka-Trap was sprung, really – it was perfect. She baited Kana, and then after she took it… enjoyed her pain. Of course, Kana ends up not learning the lesson (don’t be a chocolate thief) and ends up getting beat up at the end of the episode.

    I think the best parts for me were when Makoto asked WHY he had to dress as a maid, and Kana made a speech about how Valentine’s was a girl’s holiday… and then when he had to admit he liked a guy named ‘Makoto’, with Chiaki suggesting there were better choices than that idiot.

    Must also say that Touma and Chiaki look pretty good when they’re pissed off… which is probably why Asread keeps drawing them that way.

    Asread’s good and all but god with some shots the fact that they’re newbies is so plainly apparent.

    *recites the trap mantra…*

    “I don’t care anymore, just shoot me… there’s no way there’s a p0n0s on this one…”

    Haven’t been keeping up with this series, something about the pacing and the artwork doesn’t seem right after Doumu’s version…

    The art really did suffer here – look at Maki and Hosaka’s face in that scene above and you’ll see it. However, they DID do the shota maid trap, so… that’s something. Now we just need to put him into that Fumoffu-like waitress outfit…
