Just because I think this pantsu makes my hair look nice, doesn’t mean you can judge me!
|Ah, it’s time for the daily lives of high school boys again! My life in an all girls’ school has never been as randomly crazy and hilarious as theirs xD But that’s good anyway, this show will be my laughter pill every week from now onwards!~|
This week, we get a peek of how the journey back home from school is like for our awesome trio. It begins as a typical walk (then again with them, nothing much stays normal for long) until Tadakuni notices something strange lying on the road… *gasps* A STICK!! Which sends them into full-RPG mode and they battle it out with the stick (which is now a deadly sword) and an umbrella… whaaat? Tadakuni and Hidenori take on the roles of travelers aiming to reach the “King’s castle”, defeat the demon lord and take over his position. Oh, and Yoshitake also happens to be a normal mob, a mid-boss and the demon lord xD Their little game ends when they realize their bags were left behind ages ago… Jeez, these boys.
The next story is centered around Tadakuni’s part-time job at a pizza shop, with his co-workers Nago and Yasunori. They start talking about looks and popularity, and somehow end up chiding Nago-san for not trying hard enough to improve her looks. Guys, are you sure you want to criticize a lady about her looks? Nago-san gets irritated and decides to show her true colors, prettying herself up and actually opening her eyes fully and holy— who knew she was going to be such a beauty?
And so the moral of the story is: don’t judge a book by its cover, kids
Back at home, imouto-san is not happy. Her underwear is missing again, so naturally she’s accusing the perverted trio for stealing them like before. She orders them to find the culprit, lest they face her wrath. The trio diligently looks out for the culprit in their backyard… and then Yoshitake realizes that his two friends are wearing bras. Settling his inner debate, he decides to be a “good friend” and follows his buddies’ examples, putting on her pantsu in a rather fashionable manner, to say the least. Of course, imouto-san chooses this moment to walk in and they have to face her wrath once again… *gulps*
Anddd we’re back at the riverbank and this time it’s with Motoharu though, and he too, starts a conversation with Literary Girl with an ~ inspirational quote~ about the wind—that is, until he realizes that HE HAD BEEN SPEAKING TO THE WRONG GIRL. -shot-
Indeed, true friends will stick together through everything – even if it means stealing your younger sister’s lingerie
The trio complain to Karasawa about participating in their traditional school event of picking up rubbish in the neighbourhood, and decide to approach the principal to question the purpose of their random school events after reading about fasting for 70 hours?! The principal breaks into a dramatically exaggerated story about how one of the previous principals had stood 70 hours in an attempt to save the school back in 1984—And then Karasawa points out the not-so-insignificant fact that the school was only founded in 1989!
When Motoharu and his onee-chan are on a leisurely walk back home in the evening, she comments about how easy-going their brother-sister relationship is. Shortly after, they get into a childish argument about their childhood experiences together on the riverbank. Turns out the argument just needed to be settled with a practical, actual reminder about the very fun “game” they played. After that, I’m sure Motoharu won’t be retorting against his sister again.
What do you mean we won’t get any yaoi action in this show?!
And what were you saying about our height difference again?
Scary ghost stories, round two! Hidenori starts it off by recalling about a certain strand of 3cm long white-colored eyebrow hair, then Yoshitake cuts in, not to be beaten. He retells his story about how he washed his face so hard, his finger accidentally plunged into his nostril (???), emitting a crunching sound… *shudders* Tadakuni ends off once again about an occasion during which he saw Kawasawa take off that hat he always wears, eliciting cries of anticipation about what on earth was under that hat from his friends. Tadakuni totally trolls them and refuses to tell them on the premise of protecting Kawasawa’s privacy – only thing is, poor Kawasawa had just arrived at his house to join their little story-telling session, and now he has to be subjected to the sudden interest they have taken in his hat.
This week’s bonus – the daily life of a lady. It begins with Lady Yukana acting like a total spoilt brat and refusing to to to school, and her three (unfortunately, not very sexy) butlers Nagase, Asano and Toyogawa. Yukana demands her butlers to help her think of reasons to skip schools, but they all seem to have bucketfuls of ridiculous excuses up their sleeves. She gives up hope on them and yells at them to be serious, and then her false tooth promptly falls out. Toyogawa picks it up with surprisingly incredible speed… and proceeds to use it as a weapon against his other two butlers. How mature. Yukana gets upset with her butlers’ teasings, and decides even school is better than this.
Omg, you mean there’s hair under that hat?! TROLLOLOLOL
Seems like someone has a false tooth fetish…
I had been looking forward to this all week since last week’s awesome first episode and indeed, it did bring me some much-needed humor and laughter 8D Although I personally think the previous episode had its funnier moments, this episode was also very entertaining as I’m beginning to fall in love with all the characters in this anime. Our main trio is as amusing as ever, and I find it funny how Tadakuni usually starts out as the sane, logical one and then afterwards ends up going crazy and doing stupid things with his silly friends. It reminds me of my friends in real life – I guess every clique must also have its very own insane extroverts who liven up the atmosphere xD
The background music in this anime is also brilliant, I must say, with gentle calming songs for riverbank scenes (LUL) and heavy metal music for impending wrath of imouto-san… xD I have also grown to like the opening song a lot – it fits the entire anime, genre and its characters so well, and also has a catchy tune *__* what more can you ask for? We finally get to listen to the full, proper ending song this time and it’s hilarious xD The scenes of the play flashed made absolutely no sense at all, but the song itself is adorable with a bubbly feel to it, even if it didn’t have the best vocals.
All in all, episode 2 has been awesome for me! For a slice of life anime, all that really matters to me is that the characters can capture your interest and those little snippets of everyday life are entertaining and amusing. #Nichibros (I will never be able to express how much love I have for this hashtag going around on twitter xD) has certainly done both of that, and I’ll be looking forward to subsequent episodes filled with nonsense and laughter!
