So.. Kirino gets in to a scrap with Ayase when she finds out about her hobbies. What does she do about it?
Tell Kyousuke to take responsibility for it. Jesus, at least take some responsibility for your own hobbies in the first place, Kirino. Are you really expecting big bro to save you every damn time you do this shit onto yourself.
That being said, it did result in Kyousuke getting a lot of great lines this week. With gems like:
Kyousuke finally comes clean.
Actually, this line should have been “This doujinshi is the proof of love between me and Kirino!”
Siscon end confirmed.
Yup, just as planned.
Even Daddy Kousaka gets a nice line in this week.
Tsundere dad? Or tsundere dad. It’s even worse when you think of the possibilities you could do with that sound bite. I mean, whip up some EVA MAD’s and insert that line as Gendou’s… hurrrrrrrr
On the other hand, Ayase wasn’t nearly yandere enough as I first expected. I mean, the only real yandere parts this episode was this scene at the beginning…
… and her constant threats to beat him to death.
Via text only now I might add, because she’s extremely disgusted with him.
Well… as for Ayase’s fervent rejection of “otakus”; I really don’t want to add to that except maybe that I wouldn’t be friends with such a person in the first place. Joking/ribbing about a friend’s hobby is fine, but outright rejecting their hobbies is just not what a real friend should do. Then again, Kirino’s a pretty selfish person who likes to be in the popular crowd dissing otakus AND in the real otaku crowd as well, so I guess it’s really her own damn fault in the end. Sigh.
Overall though, I think this was a better episode than episode 3, in terms of the drama and the LULZ WERE HAD numbers. To be honest, family finding out isn’t as bad as friends finding out. At least with family, there’s still a limited space for the information to flow out, but “friends” could make your social life a real hell if they ever felt like it. That’s why I guess it’s so hard for people like us to make friends with others. Especially if their definition of friendship includes “bullying the fuck out of you by teasing about your hobbies”. Some “friends” just aren’t worth keeping.
As for the incest-bashers… well, by now it should be clear the show is EXACTLY as it is named. Better live with it and enjoy the weekly trolling or just forget about the show being a “deconstruction of the incest trope etc. etc.”. Because there’s no way in hell that’s gonna happen by now, ( ﾟ∀ﾟ)ｱﾊﾊ八八ﾉヽﾉヽﾉヽﾉ ＼ / ＼/ ＼.
