Nogizaka Haruka’s Secret 02

Nogizaka Haruka

Let me just say this. NOTO-SAMA POWAAAAHHH!!!

Yes, dammit, I love this show thanks to Noto-sama’s rendition as Haruka. When she said, “Seeing cute things makes me really happy.”, I so had to refrain the urge to reply back, “Seeing you makes me more than happy enough.”

This episode was especially funny as hell, since they made Akihabara look like the ideal romantic spot, with both of them going there together. Not– Oops, Haruka going red over the BL section was awesome, then followed by her obsession with the gashapon machine (“popping my cherry” LOL), then followed with lunch in meido cafe.

Hell, they even had weaboos in the show! God I so LOL’ed at that part. Even more so when Haruka conversed with them in their native language, Russian I believe, but I can be wrong. But anyways, it was pretty fluid and natural, so I was really amazed. Must be one of Noto-sama’s hidden talents LOLOLOLOL.

And the ending with Yuto giving Haruka an ohimesama-dakko after she found out that the PSP (her main objective) was sold out and she was so disappointed until her legs gave way was just… just… just… really… ahh!! I dunno what to say. Shit, if this was an official date, I’d say it would’ve been a sure-kill, with the cat totally in the bag.

Well, this episode has definitely sealed up my love for Haruka, despite it still having some rough edges all around. Overuse of the usual rom-com cliche’s are definitely a bit boring for me, but Noto-sama more than makes it up for me I guess.

I am wondering though, when will be the maids making their official appearance.

    I wonder if she’s eligible for this year’s Saimoe.

    It was indeed Russian. Horrible, horrible Russian.

    Looks like we get 2 shots of Haruka smiling per episode….I feel spoiled :)

    This episode continued the fun well.
    Along with BL doujin scene, I liked the “deito” reaction.

    “I am wondering though, when will be the maids making their official appearance.”

    Pretty sure it’s next episode. Something about maids was mentioned in the preview.

    Noto Mamiko did a Russian iceskater in Ginban Kaleidoscope, Kuro. Heck, I don’t think she spoke a single word of Japanese with the exception of the last episode (the showdown with Kawasumi Ayako’s character Tazusa).

    maids will be introduced when we get to hauka’s house. at least thats where the novel introduces them. my favorite one is still the chain-saw happy Maria-sama clone. and the jet-fighter pilot maids.

    Damn it, her smile is like a drug (or Coke); I can’t get enough of it.

    I agree with you Kuroneko-sensei, Noto-sama’s talent is more than enough to make Haruka so dam cute and awesome. Funny to learn that it was Yuuto was the one who made Haruka an Akiba-kei (it is so obvious by now), but he doesn’t remember that, only a little déjà vu on that sunset (the same back then and the same crying Haruka). Their “date” over Akihabara was priceless, even with the maid outfit that Haruka wore on the Cosplay Café; I love Haruka’s “they made me wore it” excuse when he gave her a suspicious look.

    We even get the introduction of Haruka’s (I suppose, thanks to the OP) love rival. I guess she’ll learn Haruka’s “dark” secret too.

    I’ve like 16 episodes to catch with various series, so the wait for next week’s episode will be short.

    Going to Akihabara for a date would be romantic, that is if your girlfriend is also an otaku.. haha… but the meido scene was really cute… The BL section scene reminded me of Kagami… hehe… oh the good times…
