Can’t get a more classic Japanese summer than this~
~It’s been forever since I’ve had to do a re-cap post for a series, and unfortunately I had to break my streak to be a normal high school girl for once (One word: PROM). While I did have fun, I still missed the darling A Channel girls and their simple, yet comedic activities, not to mention my Tooru-chan and Nagi-chan! -FANGIRLSOB- Oh well, I’m back, caught up, and ready to fangirl!
The day starts in classic A Channel fashion with Tooru and Run hanging out together, but will a little complications such as the tiny Tooru getting stuck in between the bed and the wall! Run also tries to cut Tooru’s bangs, but as expected, failed…Yet good for Tooru as Run makes her hairstyle similar to hers.
THAT BLUSHIE FACE<3 AL;SFKJFKGFGFG
The next day they head off to school where the topic of molesters comes up. Tooru tells Run they usually call out at you from the car, and what do you know, Mr. Satou comes rolling by in his car asking if they need a ride to school. Run gets the wrong idea and runs for it! (I actually feel sorry for Mr. Satou…)
Yuuko gets quite a fright as well when she sees what looks like a signal about a fire in the first year’s classroom. She runs to the class, mop and water bucket in hand, asking where the fire is at. Unfortunately for Yuuko, it turned out they were only dusting off the chalkboard rag. She tries to rid her embarrassing mistake by saying she’s there to clean, but they don’t fall for it, especially Tooru, who keeps embarrassing her more.
Later that night, Yuuko finds out she accidentally left her survey at school. She pleads to Nagi to come with her, and she does, bringing Tooru and Run as well. They manage to get inside, where Yuuko turns into the ultimate scardey-cat, but that doesn’t stop Nagi from suggesting they explore the school.
After roaming the school, Yuuko makes Nagi come to the bathroom with her where they discover a bright flame floating around…The two sprint from the bathroom, then proceed to hide in a classroom, afraid of the supposed hitodama.
However they start to hear footsteps as well, and Tooru, thinking it could be a burglar, goes out to get the person. It turns out it’s actually Mr. Satou walking around with a candle. They explain to him why they’re at the school, while he explains his candle…fetish. Tooru being Tooru, she blows out the candle which actually makes him blackout! The girls struggle to take him to the Nurse’s office, but manage, and try to wake him up. It’s not until Run continues calling him that he does. Tooru immediately gets annoyed and throws the bed over, Mr. Satou being stuck under the mattress. With that the girls end up going home, forgetting the survey page once again.
Don’t. Piss. Off. Tooru. Period.
Heading off into episode 7, Run suggests they go to the Fireworks Festival before their summer vacation ends. After that quick discussion, they decide to spend the rest of the day at karaoke.
Each of the girls sings their own songs, displaying their pretty good vocal talent, except for Tooru, who sits nervously. She almost prepares to sing at one point, but the waitress ends up coming in at the wrong time and Tooru immediately cancels the song.
In the end, Tooru finally gets the courage to sing as Run-chan joins her, and the others join in as well with instruments. Before Run can sing another song though, Tooru stops her and tells the others to listen. It turns out (YET AGAIN) that the person next door is Mr. Satou…
The day of the Fireworks Festival arrives, and the girls meet up to look at the night stalls before the fireworks are set to begin.
They enjoy some festival goodies and games, including ring toss and candy carving. In fact, they get so engrossed in candy carving, they forget that the fireworks have started! Unfortunately a crowd has already formed so they can’t get through.
Luckily Run knows a secret spot on top of a hill where they can view them, but they have to go up long flights of stairs. They manage to catch some of the fireworks, which were actually the grand finale of the show.
A bit disappointed, the girls instead use the sparklers Yuuko won at one of the stalls to satisfy themselves~.
Not-a-Witty-Titled Pic Spam~!!
Run-chan with scissors is definitely not scary, aheh…*hides*
IT’S NOT WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE
Nagi looks like an evil mastermind with her crew.
Don’t act like you’ve never done this before…
I know I do occasionally
It’s all right Tooru; Wearing heels is hard for a lot of girls.
End thoughts: I swear these girls make everything look like SO MUCH FUN, especially the karaoke and summer festival. Those two will be the first two things I do when I go to Japan…Anyways, to be honest, episode 7 was my favorite out of the two. Episode six felt very uneven in the beginning, which I didn’t particularly like. It did get a more set storyline the second half that I found pretty enjoyable. My favorite scene has to be when Nagi and Yuuko just SPRINT out of the bathroom and freak out. Poor Yuuko and Nagi are flailing around, screaming; I couldn’t stop laughing xD Another favorite part of mine was when Run was slapping Mr. Satou to wake up! That face she has when doing that was hysterical.
I can’t say he deserved it though, even if he was being a total creeper these past two episodes. I’m actually gonna stick up for Mr. Satou! He’s the harmless, innocent creeper to me, I mean, the poor guy just has really, REALLY bad timing and awkward fetishes, but hey! Not like he’s putting them into creepy uses…Also, for some reason I find him to be kind of cute at certain scenes.
Creepers are attracted to other creepers I guess?
Now for episode 7, while it did have those typical summer fun moments, they managed to make it pretty entertaining with gorgeous animation as usual. The fireworks and nights scenes during the summer festival looked so lovely! I was literally gawking in awe (I’m a sucker for small little details like that). The karaoke scene was also nice as well. I loved how Nagi’s performance was SO INTENSE, flames in the background and everything xD Oh, what made me get all sentimental was Tooru trying to gather the courage to sing. I FEEL FOR YOU AGAIN TOORU (Why are you so relate-able?)! ;A; Overall, not too bad episodes, though I’ll admit I’m tired of them being on summer vacation already, heh~.
Summer vacation is now over, and it’s back to school for the girls, which also means for Tooru, back to her creeper Yutaka and savior Mipporin. But what has all of them looking so down? Until next week then~!
