I swear this chicken just knows something. It’s like he can see into my soul and see my deepest and darkest (and ecchi) desires. It’s creeping me out, man.
Anyways, this episode took all of the introduced characters, including Sasahara, who played in a small part last episode, and merged them into one heck of a group. I felt it was kind of rushed that the characters were all so comfortable with one another but it was reassuring in a way. The characters all interacted with each other well and all of their different personalities showed even more contrast while together. They are all trying to build a chicken coop for Nagoya, so in a way, the chicken is the mastermind behind this episode. That chicken just isn’t right…
The episode showed a lot of inner conflict with Shizuku as Haru confuses her with his response to her blunt confession. Already you see some character development with Shizuku as she starts to become aware of her feelings. Evolving like a Pokemon, she is. As for Haru, we get a preview of some conflict he has with someone named Yuzan. Whatever it may be, it’s clear Haru is avoiding him. A brother perhaps? Or maybe a childhood friend? Who knows, for all we know it could be Haru from the future. Or maybe it’s that damn chicken in disguise…
Sorry, got a little paranoid there. Just a little. To sum up this episode, it was pretty good. It didn’t advance the plot that much, but it did elaborate on the characters. Nothing really memorable in this episode and nothing really makes it stand out. Just your run of the mill episode. But I will admit it did have some funny moments brought to us by our favorite Internet freak, Asako Natsume.
