Hurr… why so emo, Tsucchi?
Despite the dramatic change of mood and tone, I quite liked how this introspective episode was done, especially when we thinking that Tsucchi was actually depressed over his failed confession last week. Turns out he went waaaaaaaaay past that and in to truly deep and dangerous territory; the meaning of working. Only one more step to the really dangerous spiral that is “the meaning of life”. Seriously, whenever I fell in to that whirlpool of thoughts, I truly felt that life was pretty damn meaningless.
Thankfully, Tsucchi has great friends around, and Anzu really shined through this episode with her persistence to cheer up Tsucchi. Coupled with a few nudges by Sakura-senpai, looks like that was enough to elevate him back out from that dangerous condition.
Also, this episode offered to explain a little about the reason behind Yamamoto-sensei’s “denseness” by using the “I have an objective to achieve.” reason. Quite a lame copout, I thought, but at least Tsucchi got to know about it. Let’s hope it does motivate him to do better from now onwards.
Finally, the preview is saying that he might be confessing to her, again, in the final episode. Wonder how that’ll turn out, considering what was just achieved in this episode.
So this week we start off by having a little side story on Mayumi, Yamamoto-sensei’s younger sister. And same like her sister, she really has a presence that motivates people and helps them do their best.
Geez, do all Satoshi Hino characters have an inherent pheromone production device that automagically attracts females that are close to him but he will never consider as his main interest? Out of nowhere some yakuza ojou comes and declares to marry him just because he brought her home after her sandal straps broke. And she’s like… six? At this rate, Tsucchi’s gonna be the owner of the largest harem in Japan 15 years later when they are all grown up.
More Yamamoto-sensei in swimsuit? I LIKE.
Ogling at Yamamaoto-sensei is bad for health? I highly disagree.
Well worth waiting 3 days to watch this!
And yes, Yamamoto-sensei doesn’t disappoint. Simple is still the best!
Uuuuuuu~~~~ Yamamoto-sensei! Please be my wife!
Seriously, Gainax knows exactly which buttons to hit in me.
