Tokimeki Memorial 02

October 26, 2006


Tokimeki Memorial, also with more winking now.

The second episode was surprising enjoyable. From the preview of the first episode I was afraid of a boring episode featuring weird male characters of interestinglessness. Somehow this still happens, but the pace of the episode was fast enough and the characters where not as annoying as I feared. The silliness level of this episode was also more bearable than the last one and quite entertaining this time.

To the story: Riku’s performance last time impressed the four big leaders of the sport clubs of the school. Three of them decide to challenge him.

I liked this

If he loses he’ll have to join their club. The fourth one won’t do this because she is the leader of the girl’s volleyball team. Riku somehow manages to beat them all through unwittingly exploiting their individual weaknesses.

Do girls really like something like this?

Ryouiki Kamino, captain of the track club, gets beaten with the help of Riku’s friends because of his urge to “run beautifully”.

That’s what you get for messing with Riku Aoba!

Koayu Utsumi, captain of the swimming club, gets beaten because of her sensibility about her, uhhh… “assets”.

Burning! With Passion!

Ichiro Ishiuchi, captain of the baseball club, gets beaten straight in the face.

Beside these events we are shown some sweatiness

It’s just sweat!

and sweetness of girls


and teachers

Haruka Wakatake sensei, teaching english and cuteness

and at the end of the episode Riku has a (fateful?) meeting with Tsukasa Kasuga.


After helping her up

That’s the nicest thing anybody ever did for me!

she is deeply in love with him and decides that they are destined to be lovers.

And they lived happily ever after…

Things of notice:

– This short sequence is interesting because the design of some girls shown differs from the rest of the time.

Sequence of interest

Especially the girl on the left with the black stockings and the one on the right which isn’t as slim as the other girls stand out.

– I liked how Riku’s friends used the given opportunities in this scene.


– Where are the kemonomini accessories from last time?

– Where are the weird teachers from last time? (Well, I don’t really miss them, so it’s okay)

– 856*480 is superior to 704*396. Thanks C1 Anime!


  1. Wow, nice blog.

    How do you manage to take the larger photos of the teacher and other characters? Using editing tools?

  2. Thanks, for the larger pictures I use serveral overlapping screen shots (captured with VirtualDub). I put these captures together with Photoshop. For the teacher I used 4 screen shots for example. Sharp borders and differences in brightness can be suppressed with the gradient tool.

  3. Excellent items from you, man. I’ve be mindful your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely wonderful. I really like what you’ve received here, certainly like what you’re stating and the way in which in which you say it. You’re making it enjoyable and you continue to care for to stay it sensible. I can’t wait to learn much more from you. That is actually a great website.
