Tokimeki Memorial 09December 19, 2006
It’s the… beach.
Finally caught up with Tokimeki. I was kind of surprised that this series can deliver some kind of drama at such an early stage. Not enough to put a “Drama” tag on it yet, but maybe later. Sayuri made a big jump forward in terms of character deepness (well, there was practically none before) and I think (and hope) that she will be good for one or two surprises.
Another win of the past episodes is Inukai, I really like this guy now. Okay, forward to episode 9. It’s a beach episode and it’s a Tsukasa episode, so it’s all about
Tsukasa in a bikini. Of course all the other girls (and guys) are shown in swimsuits, too, but Tsukasa gets much more time to present herself.
Unfortunately Riku gets distracted most of the time, especially at the encounter with Sayuri. While he is faultless at the other cases, that time he surely is at fault.
Strangely enough Mina didn’t get a chance to show some flashy swimsuit, but instead she got as near to a kiss with Riku as a girl can get at this stage of the series.
Altogether an enjoyable beach episode featuring Tsukasa against the rest of the world. At least she got some quality time with Riku again (which she lacked of badly in the past episodes) and could show that she looks good in a bikini
and in normal clothing, too.
But I think she should search herself a new boyfriend, this one seems already lost. Then again, what the heck, fight for your right, girl! Maybe you can do it!
And the ninja chick gets some extra credits for ending a more than disturbing scene.
You are my little hero!
