Resemblances to a certain female character in a certain Gundam show are coincidental.
Relatively bland episode this week, mainly to introduce recurring
panty-flasher character, Amamiya Shiina, Haruka and Yuto’s school newest transfer student. Lunamaria fans shouldn’t miss this show.
With a cheerful and approachable manner, Shiina makes friends very easily, almost matching up to Haruka’s popularity. Shiina gets in to a spot of trouble when she’s roped in to participate in the swimming relay, since she can’t swim at all.
Mmm~ double mizugi shot.
Yuto and Haruka find out about it and they decide to help her out by teaching her swimming at the school pool. All goes well for them, except for the addition tag-along’ers Mika, Nanami, Hazuki, Yukari and Ruko. Their efforts pay off and Shiina manages to get the hang of swimming before the competition.
It’s finally the day, and Shiina feels nervous about the whole thing, but Yuto manages to calm her down. Shiina does well in the relay initially, but her leg cramps on the last part and she nearly drowns, if not for Yuto coming to her immediate rescue. She’s brought to the infirmary, and Yuto tries to console her, helped out by their classmates too.
Asking Nanami to send Shiina home, Yuto and Haruka walk back home together and talk about how fun the past semester has been, preparations for Natsucomi and finally, Haruka broaches a bad subject in the form of Yuto’s rescue of Shiina. Yuto notices the omens and gets Haruka happy again by promising to do the same thing if it happened to Haruka as well. The end.
Wasn’t really much of an eventful episode, but it was a nice one to introduce Shiina officially in to the cast. I wonder will she get “sucked” in to the dark side of the “secret” or will she provide the “normal”, rival character for Yuuto’s affection versus Haruka.
Mika presents the “dangerous” fanservice for this episode, albeit rather shorter than the previous installments. This is soooo rather ironic considering her age.
Now how did that happen?!
Mika’s types are the really dangerous ones.
We also got to saw a teeny bit of the green emotion from Haruka at the end of the episode, but thankfully, Yuto managed to dodge the bullet pretty well. It was kinda as if he read her mind though, but no matter, we had another awesome smile from Haruka to end the show again.
Next week; Natsucomi time???
