My reaction all episode.
A double dose of doubleheaders this episode but the continuations only add to the comedic fun while still feeling like you’re watching a manga. I’m glad to see Tadakuni back in the fray. His role as the straight man is not to be taken lightly because in the end, he has the ultimate demon lord backing him up in this topsy-turvy adventure. Homages to Dragon Quest is always welcome. Angry sisters, however, are not. But I’m sure if I stole my imaginary sister’s underwear for fun, she’d beat me to a pulp too.
The focus on the main trio is a blessing but even they cannot stop the Literature Girl from making a fabulous return, as well as that peaceful melody in the background that could only be the wind’s voice. While none of the boys are embracing the idea of romance seriously, I would approve if Hidenori and his fated Literature Girl just got along better than they already do. I mean, doesn’t he know that he’s living out every dorky guys’ dreams? (Or is it just me? I’ll be waiting by a riverbank…)
Do the jokes seem bland or are they consistent enough? I am curious to know although I’m leaning towards the latter because I can’t find any more pleasure in watching high school boys and girls just be silly. The performance skit in the beginning is just damn golden and that gives plenty of momentum for the rest of the episode to do its thing: make me laugh like an idiot. Then there’s the troll teacher and Yoshitake’s embarrassing stories of his past. I can’t deny how much I look forward to watching “Nichibros” every week.
GO Rating: 4/5
High school girls need to stay funky. Please don’t get too cute.
