Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai – 03 Impression
Sounds a lot like rape to me.
Episode 03 – There Are No Flags at The Swimming Pool
Lol, this episode starts off with porn right off the bat.
Fan-service is a full blast ahead for this episode and I am sure many of you would be happy with the outcome of it. =P
This is my impression of the episode
So the episode starts off with very heavy fan-serivce and once again focuses on the banter between Yozora and Sena which ends up in them daring the other to do something along the lines of reciting a verse. (Similar to the structure of last episode) The episode then tones down the fan-service aspect and brings on the sentimentality with the introduction of Kodoka’s past which has a relation to
Sena Yozora. (I understand that the way some kid characters are drawn in animes makes it hard to tell their gender apart, but how can you not know what gender your childhood friend is? This goes beyond bad memory, and into the land of the twisted. =P)
Instant fat! One bite of yakisoba does that. Geez, as if girls don’t already have issues with their weight. Are they trying to make everyone bulimic? =P
<blockquote>”I’ll admit this game has some pretty extreme vocabulary.
But that’s just one part of it.
Besides that, it carries a profoundly deep introspective theme that puts common literature to shame!”</blockquote>
That has got to be the best line of the week thus far for me. I can just imagine a anime director using that as an excuse for all the unnecessary fan service that plagues anime these days. =P
What I find fascinating with this series are the characters’ (mainly Yozora’s) twisted fixation on love that is over-the-top in so many ways. But I guess this is what makes the series so fun to watch.
I am not sure how big this club is going to end up growning into, but I am under the impression that there are still a few more members that have yet to appear. I am just surprised that this episode did not take the chance to introduce new characters, after all, I thought that that was the point of the stalker from the last episode.
Heh, I am intimidating with my hair combed back
Another part of the episode that I had really liked was the “strong and powerful” version of Kodoka that seemed to be out of character since I had figured he’d be a wimp or a typical boring character. Sadly, that scene ended in such a cliche manner which was probably the worse part of the episode as well.
Overall, it was another entertaining episode that surprising did not put me off despite the obscene amount of fan-service in it. This is a total fan-service episode and I am sure some of you are enjoying this more than others. I, on the other hand, am just shocked that I am actually not put off by this series and enjoy it quite a bit. The rest of the episode also managed to bring some character development into the story and that had brought it back down from the land of fluff and gave the plot some direction.
Episode Rating: 7/10 – Perhaps it is nothing special but there was nothing really wrong with it either.
Damn, I have been out the whole of last night and this morning and I have so many anime to catch up on… now on to Mawaru Penguindrum! Is Ringo safe from the Yuri Yuri?
