SHE’S THE BIG BREASTED CHARACTER. DO YOU GET THAT YET?
Just a notice for next week, expect my post on C3 out around Thursday or later. I have a bunch of papers to write since a couple of my classes are ending soon.
Continuing from last episode, Konoha has collapsed thanks to the Cursed Object running around the school. Kirika asks Haruaki what happened, but he takes her request of pretending nothing ever happened seriously and says he’ll tell her later.
Later, after a bunch of shots of Konoha’s boobs (and a bit of Haruaki taking care of Konoha, but it was mostly her boobs) Konoha asks to hold Haruaki’s hands… Which results in her having him grope her. Konoha falls asleep instantly and Haruaki gets his hand back, but then either Konoha’s boobs are TOO MASSIVE for a normal shirt to contain or Fear REALLY SUCKS at putting clothing on other people, because her shirt buttons start coming undone. Haruaki can’t look away, but before he sees it all, Konoha turns into her sword form (lol).
In the yard, Fear sits staring at her cube and tells Haruaki that she thinks she’s useless since she tried her best and failed. Haruaki takes her shopping to cheer her up and Fear learns the difference between cabbage and lettuce. Who says anime never taught anyone anything. Not a minute later, Fear decides to educate an elderly lady about cabbage and she’s thanked for it. Haruaki says that Fear did a good deed. They get into a conversation about how relying on others can bring happiness as well and Fear finally realises that she can rely on Haruaki. They make rolled cabbage together and Fear reflects on how her hands, which were supposed to be for killing, made something for someone else’s sake. She wants Sovereignty to know the feeling as well.
Kirika then comes to visit. Haruaki keeps pretending that nothing out of the ordinary happened, but Kirika gets fed up and uses her Cursed Object on him. She tells him to forget about the promise if it will change their relationship. Konoha wakes up from a dream about being grabbed while running in the hallway and tells Haruaki and the others that it can’t be Sovereignty who did this since Sovereignty was busy talking to Haruaki when she collapsed. They also visit the idea that Sovereignty had an accomplice (since Konoha felt a male presence), but they wonder when she could have made one.
And then they all simultaneously wondered how Konoha’s shirt managed to defy physics.
They decide to ask Shiraho, but she’s not at school so they check the school records for her residence info. However, when they look, Shiraho’s picture is actually Sovereignty. Meaning that Sovereignty was Shiraho the whole time and the person they thought was Shiraho was actually Sovereignty. Once they get to Shiraho’s residence, a window breaks. Fear then picks up Haruaki princess style (increasing her GAR level significantly) and jumps over the fence.
Inside, a boy is seen holding a sharp object to Shiraho’s neck. Fear and Kirika attack him and he thanks them and then turns into Sovereignty. Or to be more accurate, they’re both Sovereignty as it can switch between genders since it’s androgynous. Fear gets upset over Sovereignty deceiving her, but Haruaki asks Sovereignty to explain itself. However, Sovereignty is struggling with something inside and tells Haruaki to get out of the way as something sharp starts coming out of it’s hand again. Konoha saves Haruaki while Kirika moves to get herself stabbed in the chest. Isn’t immortality convenient?
This was the groping episode
While Haruaki makes sure that Kirika is okay, Shiraho asks them not to kill Sovereignty. It turns out that Sovereignty’s curse is to achieve a deathly love with its owner so in other words, it’s another yandere minus most of the yandere personality lololol. It flashes back to when Shiraho and Sovereignty first met and Sovereignty warns Shiraho not to be its owner since she’ll fall in love with it. Once their love meets a certain level, Sovereignty’s killing mechanism will start and it won’t be able to stop it. However, Shiraho tells Sovereignty to come with her anyways since dolls are supposed to be loved.
Let’s take a look at Haruaki’s man points:
+10 man points
-2 man points
Fear: +2 man points Haruaki: -2 man points, +5 derp points
Lololol this show and trolling. I can’t express how glad I am that Shiraho wasn’t a useless pink haired girl (though I have nothing against pink hair. Just uselessness). I must say that the gender switching seems like it was only put there to momentarily confuse the viewers, but it makes things more interesting at least. I’m interested in how Sovereignty came to be as well. Sure I understand the gender switching since anyone of either gender can love a doll and have their own preferences, but why the curse? I’m sure that there’s an interesting story behind that. Shiraho’s background relationship with Sovereignty sounds intriguing as well, but I’m not so sure that they’ll go into that any more than they already have… Though why Shiraho can control dolls and stuffed animals like she did last episode is beyond me. Or maybe that was Sovereignty in the background? That doesn’t seem like it has anything to do with its curse though.
Oh, Haruaki. Sure there was some stereotypical harem stuff, but I found that I didn’t mind it that much. I really like Haruaki as a character since he’s not whiney about having to deal with everyone’s problems and he’s actually pretty active in the plot considering that his harem is made up of strong characters (both physically and personality wise). I was surprised that he actually attempted to keep his promise with Kirika about forgetting everything. The whole thing seems pretty redundant since it was cancelled halfway through the episode, but I guess it showed that Kirika actually has interest in Haruaki and how great of a guy he is.
I was much more into this week’s episode as opposed to last week’s even though this had more slice of life. For one, Fear isn’t complaining about not belonging there anymore. There is only so much self-pity I can take before I want to flip a table. Do I even have to mention the awesome visuals at this point? (Though sometimes theres some pretty derp in between animation.) There was also Penguindrum-esque imagery here (like that door closing or that red…circle…thing… Yeah I have no idea what that was supposed to symbolize. The heart?). The twist with Sovereignty and Shiraho was great as well. Hopefully this wraps up next week though because I don’t know how long they can draw this out and still make it interesting. For once, I don’t think I want much bloodshed since I like the relationship Sovereignty and Shiraho have.
Preview: More Shiraho and Sovereignty. Though I can’t help but wonder how Peavy is faring without depth perception.
