Beach episode gone wrong.
Disappointing episode this time, maybe I should have done like Sayaka to enjoy it. She was drunk most of the time.
But at least the animation quality was not too bad. The content of this episode:
They all go to the beach, they all board a ship, they all get cast away on a “deserted” island because of pesky little reporter guy’s plan and after three days they realize his plan, are more or lesser mad and go home again.
Here are the girls in their swimsuits:
Karen & Sayaka (second view)
Oh, and in between Tatsuya gets to know that he already had pinched Feena’s nose when they where children
and they had cried together because of their dead moms.
Okay, a beach/onsen episode doesn’t have to have much of a story, naturally it’s focus lies on something else (see above). But this episode was plain boring. Every time something interesting began to happen something else (to say it directly: reporter guy) came up to interrupt it. Only exception was Tatsuya’s and Feena’s talk about the past, at that time the guy had to spoil some girl-on-girl action.
Talking about Tatsuya’s and Feena’s past. A bit predictable, isn’t it? Well, it’s fine. I don’t expected much more in a harem comedy show, but shouldn’t Tatsuya been able to recognize Feena a bit earlier? She looks very similar to her past self and he had the hints: “Fee…”, a deceased mother and some kind of VIP-status. I don’t know how restricted the lunar press is, but shouldn’t he had read as much as possible about the moon and his society because he is eager to travel there one day? Thus, shouldn’t he have seen a lot of pictures of Feena? Okay, she is the moon princess, so it might be a bit hard to associate her with a crying little girl, but at least he should have had some suspicions. By the way, what would he have done to find the girl of his memories as soon as he had reached the moon? Asking some random people if they have seen a girl who had lilac hair when she was young and is named Fee-something?
Well, doesn’t matter I think. Some other interesting points of this episode:
- A reference to “Cast away” in a cast away episode
- Wiseman says: “Good joke can be told twice.”
Sadly this one wasn’t good enough.
- Wow, a not-full moon!
- Still don’t know what Wreath job will be, but she looked kind of sad when she saw happy Tatsuya & Feena.
To tell the truth Wreath is now the most interesting aspect of the story for me.
- They don’t have swimsuits on the moon? Okay, no natural seas, but does that mean they don’t have pools either or that they have them, but use them without swimsuits? And do they have a manga & anime production on the moon? If they do, how can they do without swimsuits?
