That’s what you get for indecent exposure, you jerk!
|And again it’s time for this week’s dose of Nichibros! While I am dying trying not to fall asleep in every single lesson for the entire day, these high school boys here seem to be living awesome lives full of hilarity. :\ TAKE ME TO JAPAN.|
Have you ever wondered what your friends talk about when you’re not around? Tadakuni is about to find out as he sneaks about to eavesdrop on a conversation between Hidenori and Yoshitake. From fish stories to eechi to politics, their topics turn out to be strangely random. Tadakuni is worried about the fact that they have been drifting apart, and decides to approach them… until they turn around and WAIT WHAT? They’re not Hidenori and Yoshitake at all! What is this sorcery?
And finally the long-anticipated cultural festival is here! What exciting things will happen? First we get introduced to the student council committee of East High, who seem to be a bit jumpy about going into an all-boy’s school for the first time. They meet the student council of the boys’ school, and who would’ve known, our Hidenori and Yoshitake lookalikes are actually the vice-presidents! East High’s president starts to feel inferior in comparison to the boys’ school’s organized student council room and hospitable service, and this is when the Nichibros president decides to introduce himself, incidentally mistaking the wrong girl as president. Aaand thus sparks the beginning of the romance rivalry between the two presidents.
Well, at least now we know how Yoshitake and Hidenori will look like 30 years down the road…
“Ah, and I’ll always remember the moment we first met, WHEN YOU MISTOOK ME FOR SOMEONE ELSE.”
In the end, the two schools end up working together for their cultural festival, and the fun times begin! East High’s president, though, is rather engrossed in her ongoing battle with the Nichibros president. That’s why when he brings them to their very specially crafted haunted house, she vows to not raise her voice ever no matter how scary it may be. Missing eyeballs? Nope, not scary. Bloody intestines? Nah, no big deal. All seems to be going fine until the end, when she unfortunately comes across the gloriously half-naked Nichibros president and shrieks… Cue punch to the face.
Two awkward turtles, Yoshitake and a familiar face from Jyoushi Kousei wa Ijyou, get stuck with reception duties together. This results in periods of awkward silence, and somehow she decides to break the silence by ranting about all the bad qualities boys have. Yoshitake realizes that she’s just pretending she knows things about boys, so he keeps quiet. That is, until he can’t take her criticism anymore and swaps jobs with his lookalike, who happens to be naturally intimidating. Next time, think before you speak, girl. xD
“Of course, we also can’t forget that special moment I SAW YOU HALF-NAKED FOR THE FIRST TIME.”
Next, we skip to performances by the two schools. East High’s president is all smug about her school’s high quality performance, until the Nichibros president scoffs at her. Seriously, you don’t want to mess with a proud president. A fight breaks out between the two presidents, while the Keionbu promptly starts playing awesome BGM to set the stage. There’s a clear winner here, and that’s East High’s president, who leaves our poor Nichibros president lying lifeless on the floor.
Ah, and the cultural festival has finally ended. Tadakuni is walking home with Nago-san after work, and raises the troubling issue of drifting apart from his friends. She gives him some advice and chides him for acting like a girl, and then eggs him on when they coincidentally bump into Hidenori and Yoshitake. Tadakuni gathers up his courage and runs forward to speak to them… until they turn out to be the student council members AGAIN. How anticlimactic.
Deja vu, man, deja vu.
And yes, Jyoushi Kousei wa Ijyou is back again this episode! This week, the girls are once again discussing about how depressing high school boys are and how they shouldn’t even be alive. *gasps* They decide to disturb their neighbor, whom they deem as a “typical high school boy” – and their unfortunate target turns out to be Karasawa. As they hurl insults at him, he goes into his room and returns with something in his hands – sweets. He throws them down nonchalantly, and the girls don’t even waste a second in reaching out to grab them, carnivorously gorging them down their throats. Girls sure like their food. xD
And now we get to see the specimen of a rare species, high schools girls – beware, they go batshit crazy when hungry
I always have this feeling of inexplicable happiness after I watch Nichibros. It’s like their silly joyfulness is rubbing off on me, and that leaves me with a dumb smile on my face even as I’m writing this post. xD Truly, it is a refreshing breather from my busy busy week~ As expected, we got introduced to many new characters this week, and the student council comittee from both schools were entertaining additions to our growing range of Nichibros characters indeed. xD I like how we’re getting more female characters in this show, they can bring out so many hilarious points in guys sometimes. I am now officially shipping president/president, so hurray for the first Nichibros couple! (I honestly didn’t expect a show like this to have shippable couples but LOOKS LIKE I WAS WRONG xD) I hope that they will have many fun times trying to kill each other happy loving times together in the future :3 Ah, how do I express my adoration for the characters in this anime? Somehow we are able to remember each and every one of them and their different personalities and quirks, even though there are so many of them right now.
Although this episode focused more on the rivalry between the two presidents, Tadakuni definitely got more screen time (but what was with those 20 seconds of introduction featuring him lying about doing nothing, seriously?!) with his, um, friendship troubles and little insecurities. He’s so cute *pinches cheeks* Yoshitake also had his own little segment, although he did nothing much but pretend to be unfazed by her insults hehe. Thing is Hidenori hardly appeared in this episode, and I miss him already! He plays the really insane comical character in this anime, and he’s usually the one with the funniest jokes and antics. Moar Hidenori please? 😀 I’m pretty sure next episode he’ll get his deserved screen time, though. Also, I’m started to get used to those anticlimactic endings for each segment (by this I mean I’m kind of expecting it to happen, but I enjoy it and end up laughing anyway LOL)! This is probably becoming a signature point of Nichibros.
And yay again for Jyoushi Kousei wa Ijyou! It would be awesome if the producers decided to continue this little segment of theirs forever for all the subsequent episodes. They create a good contrast when compared to the nichibros xD One thing I would like to see is our Jyoushi Kousei trio and Danshi Koukousei trio to actually meet each other. Wouldn’t that be so exciting? I can only imagine what insane things will occur >D
I actually wonder how many characters they will be able to fit into this anime. Nevertheless, I’m sure the producers have many interesting things up their sleeves. 😀 After all, this is an anime about everyday life featuring high school boys doing silly things – and since high school boys are awesome no matter what they do, that in itself, is bound to bring many funny incidents, isn’t it?
Preview: Next week, we’ll be getting a glimpse of Hidenori’s childhood days. Now this looks exciting.
