Kotoura-san 04

Kotoura-san

Uh-oh… Manabe is mad.

Kotoura-san

Yeah!

Kotoura-san

You go, boy!

Kotoura-san

…. wait, what? Dammit, Manabe-kun! Once a pervert, always a pervert.

Kotoura-san

Oh wow, Kotoura’s grandpa isn’t any better. Now I see why she can tolerate him.

Kotoura-san

Lol wut?! That’s some hardcore stalking there.

Kotoura-san

Ahahaha Manabe-kun can be pretty harsh.

Kotoura-san

Anyways, all’s well ends well. Kotoura-san capturing mission success!

Four episodes in and still balanced precariously on that tightrope between comedy and drama, it’s amazing how the show hasn’t fallen to the dissonance of inserting pervert jokes while in the middle of a melodrama arc. It just all kinda works… somehow.

Weakest part of the episode I would say was Moritani’s sudden appearance. I lol’ed when she flat out admitted to hiring a detective to stalk Kotoura/Manabe. Not sure if creepy or just rich. And Manabe’s reactions to her sudden change of mind was just hilarious, can’t say she didn’t deserve them. Well, at least she’s made up with Kotoura and Manabe in the end. Funny how fast she got incorporated in to their gang though.

Wondering what’s coming up next in the show. Comedy interval for now?

    There’s a chunk of stuff that was cut out, which is why Moritani’s apology felt so insincere in the anime (the perils of researching the material I suppose). For example, she was reduced to a sleepless wreck because of guilt, and pretty much broke down mentally. Also Kotoura wasn’t quite as forgiving.

    How ironic that the two people that Haruka trusts the most tend to be the biggest perverts. That grandpa is sick as fuck, and poor Haruka can’t just say no to her benefactor.

    The episode would have been okay with me, except that I do agree that Moritani’s “redemption” was dealt in like, four minutes towards the end, which really feels meh, considering all the shit she did in previous episodes. I mean, come on, Manabe (or his family) won’t even think of filing for assault charges after getting fucked up like that. :D

    Who knows, they could be spending the bigger bulk of the episodes towards the mother. I mean, what she did to Haruka does not even compare to Moritani’s jealousy fits. There’s Yuriko too, but I don’t think she could pull off something really evil.

    Still, the whole episode was fun to watch. Can’t wait to see the next one.

    PS: Myssa, where do you get your manga? If anything, I want to check out the original material to see how things actually happened.

    I felt that her gramps screams NTR to me… But anyways, Moritani is the most pathetic girl that I ever seen!

    Is it bad that I am only into this series to see MANabe’s actions and reactions, and his… uh, rage is pretty much what made this episode for me?
