Moe sheep mascots are really into BL novels! Is that you Anaaga? Ness? OC? or Kyokai?!
Welcome back, Mayo fans! Sure has been a weird ride so far. Lots of girls wanting the attention of Subaru, well until they figure out he is a she! Anyway so much stuff to enjoy, like watching Kanade toy around with Jirou and Subaru’s expressions. Anyway time to get into episode six of Mayo Chiki, enjoy.
Plot this week follows the new tsundere girl Usami and her forced “date” with Jirou as they attend the school festival together, until Subaru arrives in her china dress to pull him away. Shortly after, Jirou is attacked by one of the S4! This is lead by Kanade herself who explains after a game that he was forced to go along with Usami, who plans on leaving the S4 for good; of course everything gets fixed near the end as Usami and Subaru become friends.
Subaru-“Where is my slave?! Jirou, you will get some special treatment later.”
Things start out with Subaru wearing a china dress as she gives a group of girls their drinks. I think its funny how no one figured out Subaru was a chick! You can see her bust line easily; then again background characters are all kinds of dumb. Anyway Usami drags Jirou around the school festival just to have alone time with him, I get the feeling she isn’t interested in Subaru but more into Jirou? Well, after a fun scene of Usami feeding Jirou and Subaru cutting in, they visit the animal themed café to find Kureha who glomps Usami like crazy. Jirou gets jumped by the random sheep mascot for the animal cafe, learning about a huge S4 meeting that will take place soon.
Jirou the pimp! Well more like the wimp at this point in time.
Jirou- “What? Giant killer sheep!?” Nakuru needs time to recharge her moe batteries.
Clash of the Tsundere watch out, Jirou!
After that overdose of Kureha’s voice filling our ears, we join Jirou and Subaru as they sneak their way into the big S4 meeting with some help from our catgirl Nakuru. They learn that Kanade is the true leader and end up playing a game centered on Subaru’s personal life. The final question pops up about Subaru’s first kiss, actually learning it was not Kanade but Jirou after he “drowned” in the previous pool episode. Sure CPR always counts as a kiss, Jirou freaks out because the S4 members want to tear him apart. Kanade activates her revenge plan and helps Jirou escape the angry mob.
Looks like we have some Jedi’s versus Sith right here!
Kanade-“Well let’s find out who wins this game of Wheel of Subaru!”
Jirou gets so much love in the first few episodes… Lucky bastard…
Kanade-“You want your reward now? or later?” Jirou-“NOWWWW!!”
Oh, Kanade! How I love watching you. Anyway, Jirou runs off to stop Usami from quitting and finds her on the roof. After listening to Usami’s reasons to quit, Jirou pulls her out of the school and explains his own issues with girls, which causes her to laugh at him. Well, Usami, blame the writers for that lame plot device on Jirou. Shortly after Jirou is joined by Subaru who finally learns the truth behind Usami and Jirou being together and gladly becomes friends with Usami! D’awww moe friendship, guys! The following day Usami tells Jirou she will help cure him of his gynophobia, naturally by kicking his ass.
Subaru-“I forgive you for stealing my man, next time there will be blood!”
Subaru- “My Lady. Kureha- Too DAWW’d over to make up words
Usami- “Your training begins soon, young one! I shall beat you to death.”
Swimsuts for a cafe theme? Very nice! Don’t you agree?
Dat embarrassed face of Subaru.
Kanade’s I love you is one of her deadliest weapons against guys.
Well this was an interesting episode, just finding out Kanade was the true leader of the S4! Then again Kanade really does love being around Subaru so I guess it wasn’t a real shocker. I really laughed a bit when Kanade did her whole revenge on Jirou, but I wonder if there is any truth behind her I love you? Probably not as she does enjoy playing around with his mind. Subaru was also great! She does have some of the best expressions so far. Though, I was waiting for her cover to get blown as the china dress had some giveaways, but like I said the background characters probably just don’t want to see and will not figure it out till the end.
And we finally got to see Nakuru actually talk to Jirou, well sort of as she was wearing that random sheep costume! But hey I am sure we have not seen the last of her, after all we have six more episodes to go. And we got some Kureha love this time! She looked really cute as always and I enjoyed watching the random moments with her and Subaru, all those HEARTS! They were all over the place. Hopefully Kureha does not get too crushed when she learns the truth about Subaru’s true gender. I think they will become friends if they ever reveal it.
Now for Usami! This episode did change my rage of her since last episode. We really get more into her character this time, yes she has no friends at all but I think through Jirou she really wanted to get closer to Subaru. I see that now but I am sure there are plenty of other ways to make friends rather than blackmail, but whatever, she was not so bad this time for me. It was nice to see her get over herself and actually try to change her ways, hopefully she will not break Jirou and Subaru apart but I have a feeling she probably will fall for Jirou before this series ends.
That’s one big ass shark! Where is Hakase when you need her?
Next week! What… another awesome beach episode?! Well this series does love its fanservice, and we’ll get to see some Usami X Jirou action in the form of forceful grinding… And yeah, fans of neko-chan, stay tuned!
