A Channel – 04

The friend who eats whatever they want and never gains weight; Nagi has three~

~UGH, just the topic of losing weight makes my head spin and my stomach churn. I love food, and while food sometimes doesn’t love me back and does horrible things to me, there’s no way I could cut out ALL of my favorite fattening foods. Then exercising? Please. I walk home every single day which drains all of my energy to do anything more at home. Plus, I have internet business to attend to!

Anyways, enough about my laziness to lose any weight, the topic of good figures comes by the girls of A Channel when Yuuko walks into the classroom with Tooru and Run arguing about Yuuko’s good points, which all happen to be about her nice appearance.

Tooru ends up ‘losing’ as she despairs in the fact Run is giving Yuuko so much praise. Yuuko tries to be nice and console her, saying she has good points too. Tooru, however, isn’t amused at Yuuko’s “certain people like flat chests” point.

The conversation suddenly reminds Nagi about her goal to lose weight by summer and look like a model. Thinking she still only has a month left, she laughs it off, but soon realizes that they have to clean the pool, which requires them to wear their swimsuits…

Outside, Tooru is doing her duty of picking weeds on the school grounds when Yutaka’s friend Miporin (or Miho) starts talking to her, saying she’s also a big fan of hers but isn’t as extreme as Yutaka. She’ll even make sure Yutuka doesn’t bother her, at which she immediately begins to do when Yutaka catches Miporin petting Tooru’s hair and tries to do it as well.

As for the other three, who are stuck cleaning the inside of the hot, empty school pool, they manage to turn into cool fun by sliding around and splashing each other with water from the hose (Poor Tooru only being able to watch from afar).

Because obviously when cute high school girls get wet there are rainbows everywhere.

The rest of the day and continuing to the next, Nagi is shown trying to keep herself on a diet, which she wants to keep secret for fear of what the others would say or do. They find out anyways thanks to Tooru telling Nagi she should ask Yuuko how she maintains her figure. With no answers from Yuuko or Run, they decide to look up some diets on the internet as well that (obviously) turn out to be fake. However, Nagi is soon convinced that jumping right into a diet isn’t good for her, and saves her diet for another time~.

End thoughts : I’ve just been reminded that I need to lost weight, damn it. WHY DON’T I HAVE FAST METABOLISM?! *cough* This week’s episode certainly wasn’t very comedic but it was still refreshing nonetheless! It was definitely an episode most girls can relate to, heh. I totally feel for Nagi when it comes to the friends who can eat WHATEVER they want and never gain pounds. Speaking of Nagi, I absolutely loved her this episode! Her excuses when it came to gaining weight and the way she acted about diets was pretty funny. This episode was Nagi’s shining moment, and our break from the main focus on Run (which is most likely why this episode wasn’t as comedic).

One of A Channel’s odd, good points, I have to say, is that you can always get the feel for what season it is. Like this week’s episode, I definitely felt that summer atmosphere with the playing with hose, shining sun, and bright blue sky. Another example was from the first episode when they showed the cherry blossom tress and just the overall relaxed feeling of being in spring. I’m not sure if it’s because of its damn good animation or what, but whenever they transition into a new season, I can literally feel it even when it’s the total opposite of what it is outside for me. Call me strange, but I always notice these type of things. A rather short post, but I definitely enjoyed this episode (NAGI LET’S BE FRIENDS AND RAGE ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS TOGETHER!)~


BEACH TIME!! I know you boys must be happy to see these four cuties in their swimsuits while us girls are planning to sit and watch awkwardly possibly enjoying Tooru in her swimsuit. Until next week then~

    Tooru sure is popular.
    Oh Nagi, you’re fine the way you are.

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Seriously! I’m a big fan of hers myself x’D
      Nagi certainly is; I mean, look at that skinny waist of hers *___*

  2. Reaper says:

    It’s okay; we all feel the pain of the struggle attempting to lose weight 🙂
    Back to A Channel, poor Tooru when she went into orz mode after being shot down by Run, and when Yuuko tried comforting her, Tooru shot her down too. Not sure if she hates or like Yuuko, but I’m guessing she had no hard feelings, just a little annoyed at Yuuko’s model-like body.
    Heh, loved Miho’s nickname, Remote, having an automatic hold over Yutaka (still reminding me of Joe from KnT), making her do whatever she desired…

    • Hoshi says:

      ~It’s such a stressful struggle…|’D
      Yeah poor Tooru ;3; I’d comfort her, if I could hahaha! I’m pretty sure she was annoyed at Yuuko’s model body, but I think she was also a bit jealous because of the praise Run was giving her.
      I actually thought that was a cool nickname xD If I had that power…MWUAHAHAHA *evil thoughts*

    I’m not actually watching this show…but I gotta say – These characters are super cute.

    • Hoshi says:

      ~UWAH you should watch it! It may have its slow moments, but it’s pretty entertaining at time :3

      • zabobinator says:

        These next two weeks are exam weeks for me but I might start it afterwards! Like…the cuteness factor is through the roof right now…

        • Hoshi says:

          ~Oh, that’s totally understandable. I wish you good luck on your exams! :3

    I liked what nagi’s imagination showed on what tohru would do if she found out “want some food? take all you want”.
    and yeah, I kinda agree with the tapeworm thing…

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Oh that was funny xD
      And the tapeworm thing was just…strange |’D

  5. Tofu says:

    I think if you and Nagi can rage over weight loss together for a long period of time, you will end up losing weight. XD

    Now now Hoshi, sure next episode is more for the guys but this episode was surely more for the girls; talking about weight lost. So you can’t complain!

    Yuuko will continue to be my favourite character even though she’s the typical moe character still! ><"

    You know.. if they ever had those swimsuits here at school and a damn pool, it wouldn't turn out as well as how anime pictures it. It's definitely not a great world for such a laid back experience nor do I think ANY girl would want to wear THAT swimsuit during school amongst many guys. Also to note, does anyone know any schools with pools in them? My school doesn't and will never have one, it just doesn't work… Highscool I mean.

    By the way Hoshi, I feel for you girl. My metabolism is low since I'm a very unhealthy guy and I'm just so jelous yet I admire my other friends who have the luxury of eating whatever they want while not gaining weight at all! T____T

    • Hoshi says:


      Ah! True, true! You poor boys had to hear us girls complain about weight loss xD

      Seriously, every time I watch a school anime and see them wearing those swimsuits or bloomers, I couldn’t even imagine how that would work o__o; I know for sure I would NEVER wear something that short (my body type wouldn’t look good in those)! Also, my school doesn’t have a pool. I think it’s probably more private or richer schools that do, most likely >>

      SO I’M NOT ALONE (my genes are just crap) ;A;

      • Tofu says:

        private and richer schools? :O I’m not sure, I don’t think ANY highschools have it besides some in Japan or University

        There’s a Uni over here that has their own swimming pool ;D

        • Hoshi says:

          ~I have no idea LOL |’D
          Yeah I’m pretty sure Unis have them; I know the one in my town has one, and so does the junior college xD

  6. Elyon says:

    Next is a beach episode?! NOOOOOOOOOO!! >.<

    I loved Nagi in this episode (she was so…painfully relatable ;_; )I hope she gets more spotlight episodes like this one. I felt like she was sort of pushed to the sidelines more in the other episodes.

    The only thing I don't like is the stalker girl always after Tooru. She's just…annoying. XD

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Yeah I hope so too! She’s my favorite character out of the four of them. They do push her to the sidelines a lot; she’s more of the sarcastic, sassy response girl on the side.

  7. Foshizzel says:

    LOL poor Tooru she has gained a freaking stalker, I was
    calling her Haruhi so clingy.

    • Hoshi says:

      ~She certainly has XD
      Yutaka is just so obsessed with her, it’s scary

  8. Moni Chan says:

    for some reason i find run chan’s moeness to be annoying. moe can go a certin length for a certin person. gomennasai run chan fans

  9. abscissa says:

    Nagi isn’t fat at all, I even think that Yuuko is the fattest.
