Kicking off directly after the ending of the last episode… Sae makes a somewhat obvious confession towards Junichi.
Not like she probably had much contact with guys previously.
Anyways, the newly formed couple decide to gorge on sweets to commemorate their upgraded relationship. Makes more sense than practicing parfait eating to win a Best Couple contest anyways.
So skipping to the Best Couple contest, our lovebirds unfortunately encounter a deadly combination…
And she’s actually right!! Hurr durr.
I guess if Morishima didn’t get taken by Junichi, she’ll be a dyke instead.
On the other hand….
I don’t know if Umehara’s being serious or just fooling around. Either way, he’s being extremely gross with that.
Well fuck, I didn’t expect this! Even if I like Sae a lot, I would be putting my vote in for Morishima x Hibiki for this contest.
Then again, the both of them sure went all out with the wedding outfits. I was like O__O when they stepped up on stage. Hell, thought they were about to exchange vows there and then!
Oh shit, Morishima-senpai’s Omochikaeri mode got triggered.
Ahaha, Junichi. Straight to the point. Can’t say he’s not being honest about.
Uh-oh, you two better watch out. Especially Sae. Wouldn’t want to lose your girlfriend to another girl, right, Junichi?
So anyways, the contest predictably goes by a landslide to Morishima x Hibiki, but luckily for our new love birds, they came right behind them. Thus earning themselves a nice private viewing box at the cinema for a movie. Why do I feel this was a better prize than the first prize of a dinner for two at a local restaurant?
Of course, striking while the iron’s hot, our lovebirds watch the movie immediately the next day (Christmas).
If you think Sae looked real nice with that pink coat…
OH GOD WHAT IS THAT I NEARLY CAME
Holy shit that… that… that… black evening dress. Real daring.
Why am I not surprised it was Miya’s idea? I guess she’ll make for a great sis-in-law for Sae.
Dear god, Junichi. Don’t act like some AV director if you’re saying that.
I lol’ed at the heart attack thing.
Or not yet…
WHAT IS THIS I DON’T EVEN
… but okay, she looks cute in that.
OH FUCK, MIYA HIJACK.
FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF MI-NYAN. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
So… is Sae and Junichi going to venture in to the world of film-making?
Nah, maybe for family videos. In any case, I can see their children squirming 20 years later when they take those tapes out and show it to their friends when they come over.
Sae’s arc has been a rather nice change of pace for the show and infinitely much more entertaining than Kaoru’s arc. For a while there I had bleak thoughts of the show running out of steam after Haruka’s arc, but thankfully Sae’s arc changed all that.
Well, she’s definitely not going to be everyone’s favourite, but even despite the squeeky helium voice, it’s hard to find a reason to hate Sae for all her quirks and mannerisms. And she’s actually pretty bold, considering everything. Especially in “attacking” Junichi.
Following up is Nanasaki’s arc, hopefully providing a nice tsundere angle to the show. Well, not exactly, but she looks pretty much the epitome of a cool beauty. In some ways too, I think she’s actually the spiritual sister of Morishima’s Hibiki as well. Will be interesting to see how Junichi “tackles” her. Heh heh.
