Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai – 11

Science is always amazing!

Welcome back friends to another review! So this series ends next week and that is really sad news, I will definitely check out the light novels and manga, I have heard some great things about from a few online buddies. Plot this week we return to the club room with Yozora bringing up something about a few lanterns near some shrine and she mentions a local festival. This festival brings up a new club activity for everyone to join in and try some Takoyaki and play a few games to win prizes, afterwards everyone gathers around and plays with some fireworks until Yozora’s hair catches fire. Yozora leaves the others after her hair got burned and she avoids going to school for a while, but she returns days later with really short hair sparking Kodaka’s memories from his past with his old childhood friend Sora aka Yozora.

Kodaka- “Dude! I want your freaking hat…it is so magical…”

Starting right off! Kodaka having a flashback from his past with his childhood friend, but he has problems trying to remember the name of his friend! That hat must have some special shield to protect that kid and his true identity? After that short moment Kodaka goes to the club room bringing Kobato along to do some last minute homework. Yozora in the meantime mentions something about a few lanterns near a shrine, you know what this means of course? FESTIVAL EVENT TIME! Also girls wearing their lovely yukatas, while eating Takoyaki while playing lots of games for amazing prizes.

Kobato-“YAHOO! WE GET TO KILL PEOPLE!”               Maria-“As long as I can eat the bodies!”

Anime food, making us drool forever…

Sena-“C…C…c..cuteeeee!!”                 Kobato-” KU KU KU I am sick of this girl…”

The next day everyone gathers and heads out to the local festival but Kodaka and Kobato have to rent a few yukatas from a rental shop, I wonder how expensive those things really are?! Not that I would wear one they look really annoying to wear. While Kodaka waits for Kobato he shares a story from his past with Sena about his mother giving us another peek into his background. He also explains why he refuses to just dye his hair to fit in with others, because it will always remind him of his mother.

Sena-“I just noticed your hair is blond…”                 Kodaka-“You really are something special…Sena.”

Finally they arrive at the festival and being to eat lots of Takoyaki and all kinds of festival food, just ask Maria who stuffs her face with every kind of food product they sell at the festival. Like any episode of Boku wa Tomodachi we have the usual competition between Sena and Yozora! Imagine what these two girls could do if they teamed up for once? Well Rika gives it her all trying to spend time with Kodaka she shows she is a pro at shooting games and wins Kodaka a brand new gaming console. Rika you are truly a boss! Seriously you are really amazing when your head is not in the gutter. Sena and Yozora eventually get tired of trying to beat each other and decide to join the others for some last minute fun with some fireworks.

Rika-“Mmmmm this is some good banana….what don’t stare at me like that..”

Yozora-“Paper rock scissors LETS DO THIS!”                    Sena-“I told you the rules confuse me..”

It’s all fun and games until someone catches their hair on fire…

During the firework display Yozora’s hair starts to burn from getting to close to the fireworks, this causes Kodaka to throw water on her hair to put out the flames out; however this has an effect on Yozora causing her to miss a few days of school. Yozora does return to school but with a really dramatic change, what change could she possibly pull? How about cutting her hair really short! I will admit that new haircut does look really cute on her. Kodaka spots her and suddenly calls out the nickname of Sora! Yozora turns and returns with Taka, this finally reveals that Yozora was Kodaka’s childhood friend from his past.

Yozora-“You are really slow, but I like slow.”                    Todaka-“…uh thanks?”

Extra friendship power

Rika uses her moe moe kyun attack this week so cuteooooooo!!

Maria loves squid girl!

Well hello there Sena! When did you get a tattoo?

Sena-“You are not a pirate stop it!”        Yozora-“YARR! I will find the treasure and make you walk the plank!”

Best group shot ever! And the signature bad ass pose.

End thoughts

Damn this was one of the best episodes so far for this series, and sure the fan-service episodes have the best “plot” developments in the boob departments. But every once in a while the anime fan wants more from their series like drama and a few serious moments, surprisingly Boku Wa Tomodachi does this very well blending comedy, drama and the yes lots of random boob jiggles from Sena. A few months back I remember Kore wa zombie desu ka had something similar happen in one of their episodes taking a short break from the jokes to touch on some serious moments with the characters.

There were a few great moments that where amazing to watch like Rika this time during the festival stuff she was less perverted and acted very cute like her stupid senpai quote. I really loved seeing her hair down instead of that ponytail she always wears, we just need to see her without those glasses! She also handles that air gun like a pro! Damn she was great, I think she deserves her own spin off series maybe with Yukimura? That might be interesting to see…And did you notice? That cameo appearance by some Ore no Imoto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai characters? So are they saying this is the same anime universe? Or as Rika would say UNIVERSE!!

And last that huge bomb of Yozora missing school for a few days and then arriving with really short hair! That would be like Mio from K-ON! Chopping off her hair, it would look really strange. However Yozora looks quite well with that new hairstyle, but the best was Kodaka calling out Sora and then Yozora returning his nickname of Taka. That was a really great D’awwwwww moment between those two characters, now does this mean it is officially going to end up with Yozora and Kodaka hooking up? Or just them becoming friends once again! That is kind of cute how they are going to be friends once again, while I would love something more this is fine. I wonder if Yozora will cut her hair too?! You know how they operate…enjoy this lovely piece of artwork!


You mean you have a new harem?

Flashback super special episode! Or something like that I think it is mostly Yozora themed.


Is huge anime fan from Florida! who loves to watch anime and also enjoys drawing and collecting pictures, my favorite genre of anime has to be Mecha, there is just something awesome about giant robots beating the crap out of each other! Other than that type of show, I love a good comedy or action series :D

    I think Rika definitely won in this episode; from the yukata business (Gonna get naked for Kodaka-senpai!), to the shooting arcade (yeah, sometimes they are pretty dodgy, like SCREWY dodgy, and deserve a lesson of their own :D), as well as turning Kodaka into her bag bitch (had too much experience of that…) whilst our other two just left, arguing and setting the entire festival against them XD
    Still, I have to say, FINALLY! Last couple of eps, I was wondering how thick Kodaka could be but now this bombshell drops on him! Can’t wait to see what happens between them and the rest of the club, especially with Sena, kukuku

    • Foshizzel says:

      Hooray! Rika! She is jumping up there as my favorite every week, haha yeah she had some great lines like the stupid senpai that was so good <3

      I know right? Yozora and Kodaka are a good pair, but I still like Sena and Kodaka T___T ah well we can dream right? Yes! What will Sena do now?! Maybe she will stick to Kobato...

      • Reaper says:

        Ha, same, for me Rika is my favourite character; I guess you could say she’s the most normal (out of them all, apart from her…interests…) and as for Sena sticking to Kobato?
        DO. NOT. WANT! Pretty sure somewhere Stella-san might have something to say about this.
        And argh! Completely forgot about the little OreImo part they put in! Sneaky animators…

        • Foshizzel says:

          Rika all the way! Totally <3

          LOL Yeah I suppose you are right, Sena will just have her video games to fall back on.

    Man, so much plot and backstory in that eyecatch alone… it’s amazing the rest of the episode was able to compete with it!

    This episode did pretty much everything pitch-perfect. The drama/comedy balance was great, the OST was sensational, Yozora’s haircut is terrific. Can’t wait to see the wrap-up next week.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yep very important plots and amazing backstory <3

      I am with you Jrow they did such a good job of blending the drama and laughs this time. Yes the OST was great! I can't wait to get it, short hair looks amazing on Yozora, even on Sena too! <3

      Sad to see it end but I had a blast xD

    I really really want some octopus balls.

    Yukatas were definitely a win this time around. Rika wins again in this episode. Her yukata looks great and her perverted mind still knows no bounds. Her mind is really down the gutter. Just look at the she was trying to eat that banana.

    They hit the bulls-eye perfectly when they casted Yuka Iguchi to play Maria. Like her other nun counterpart, Index, she’s eating everything she can get her hands on. Where do they put all that food away?

    Ahh, being oblivious, one of the curses of being the main male character of a harem anime. I believe it took Yozora taking a haircut for Kodaka to realize she was his first childhood friend. She does look a lot cuter now.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Rika looked great this week and showed her moe side, hahah ya that mind of hers has no limits on it at all! Oh god that banana scene was hilarious xD

      When you need someone to eat lots of food turn to Yuka Iguchi! That is a perfect role for her, well like Index I think Maria has a black hole in her stomach xD

      Yozora looked great! I guess that is all Kodaka really needed a reminder although he did see her hair earlier that might have helped him.

  5. skylion says:

    So, who else lost their collective sh!t seeing Kobato in a yukata? I’ve know exactly how Sena has felt for quite some time….

    A bikini is one thing. Hot. But that yukata….even hotter…why oh why is that!?

    • Foshizzel says:

      Maria and Kobato both had cute looking Yukata on this time, ya Sena is interesting I want to see her reaction to Yozora’s new haircut xD

      I have no idea hahah

  6. Tofu says:

    Wait… Fosh did you draw that artwork of Sena with short hair!??! O__O WOAH!! AWESOME! ;D She looks stunning enough I don’t know which one do I prefer: short or long hair. hmm…

    • Foshizzel says:

      hohoho I wish! One day I want to be that good at drawing, but nawww that is not mine I found on a random image site! Just look for a artist name drawfags

      Short haired Sena is nice too! xD
