Oh man, Nanasaki’s confession scene is pretty epic. First, she drags him all the way to a hidden hot spring at night, then she confesses straight-up to him, after that well… you guys can imagine what happens next, eh?
But while that was certainly nice, I couldn’t really say the same about the rest of the episode. First off that was that pretty retarded Oden-tasting thing with the random Tea Club members that took up like half the episode and the remainder was pretty much random service cuts about the rest of the cast doing stuff on the Founder’s Festival. Well there were two highlights though…
Drunk teachers. Which are always fun to watch.
And Hibiki-senpai in a Santarina outfit. I lol’ed at her “I overcame a hurdle.” comment when Junichi asked her why she was in it. Must’ve involved quite a bit of Haruka in that, heh.
Junichi’s imagination also helped bring up the service scenes of Nanasaki in the episode, which is surprisingly low in quotient until the second half of the episode.
Hurr that last shot of yandere-mode Nanasaki would have been interesting to watch it develop further, hehe.
Overall, Nanasaki’s arc was… well, a bit weird, what with the almost fetishistic focus on food, and lacking much in real dramatic developments or turns, but it was well compensated by Nanasaki’s character. Combining seriousness with playfulness and a dash of confidence, Nanasaki’s character’s blend of sexiness really ranks her at the upper tier of the Amagami heroines so far. Not to mention she’s got a great theme song too. Her ED song is pretty much the best one released so far.
Next week is Sakurai Rihoko, who doesn’t really rank high for me. Probably due to the childhood friends and klutziness flag she both has. Well, I just hope she’ll turn out to be a pleasant surprise like Sae’s arc did. In any case, her seiyuu can sing, thankfully.
