The hardcore daily lives of heroic school boys.
|I’m tagging along so much these days, where has all my free time gone~ *mutters in a singasong voice* If the highschool boys are doing their random thing, I’m counting down till 1st March, because that’s when I start work again… Not even a week is left! Where did all the fun time went guyz?! >< Anyways, another Metafist with Foshy here for another tag of NichiBros!|
|Miyu is out again this week so enjoy another fun review from me and Kyo! So are you having fun laughing along with these crazy characters? I know I do every week…
Stories this week follow Tadakuni, Hidenori and Yoshitake using their wild imaginations and some random fun with the Literature girl and their sisters.
Yoshitake-“I will attempt to eat this crab in one bite!” Tadakuni-“Milk is great for the eyes…”
Our first set of stories follow Tadakuni, Hidenori and Yoshitake showing off various gags, like using a small crab…making milk come out of Tadakuni’s eye and a magical zipper trick by Hidenori? What the hell was that even about? Anyway after that odd set of gags, we follow the guys on some indoor adventures as they pretend to play Dragon Quest, but things get crazy when Hidenori and Yoshitake start acting multiple random characters. Before things get too random Tadakuni’s little sister arrives to interrupt the fun. She is really a deadly demon lord or demon queen?
Hidenori-“I have been standing here forever, I am so bored! ENTERTAIN ME NOW.”
Hell ya, the power of imagination!
DESTROY THE LITTLE SISTER NOW!! Ouch…change of plans…let her break our arms first.
After the imagination time was shut down by Tadakuni’s little sister, she joins Yoshitake’s older sister to have a chat with Hidenori’s older brother Yuusuke. The two girls want him to talk to Hidenori and tell him to grow up. They also chat about the other guys stealing Mei’s panties. However Yuusuke tells a few lies and the girls eventually beat him up after finding a striped pantsu on him…Wow, even the older brother is messed up.
Oh snap, Yuusuke, you screwed up big time! I suggest you get the hell out of there now.
Yuusuke-“Those are totally mine, I swear…Why are you pointing that fork at my face?”
Next up is the adventures of Literature girl and Hidenori sitting alone near the river. Hidenori watched quietly as the girl behind him go through a terrible chain of bad luck like losing her papers thanks to the wind, tripping and skinning her hand, having problems opening a box of band aids, choking on some water, slipping and crying loudly… Damn, literature girl…did you find a black cat or break a mirror? Hidenori stands to actually talk to the strange girl, but knocks her out cold and retreats leaving his jacket for her… Yeah, you better run bro! She would probably murder you after this.
Hidenori-“A violent wind has arrived to wreck your life.”
Hidenori-“Ha! You literary got knocked out by my fantastic hair, uh I should run…”
Last story follows a set of guys with Yoshitake making fun of Mitsuo aka the soccer player turned rugby player from episode six. They share lots of embarrassing stories from his past in elementary school and he overhears them talking. He thinks his entering the room would shut them up, but they continue to make jokes while he stands there. Highschool boys are sure mean. Anyway, some of the stories start to get mixed up and others learn that the stories are actually about Yoshitake! Ouch… those are some sad stories dude. It looks like he totally threw himself under the bus…
Yoshitake-“Remember that time you were a demon?” Mitsuo-“Dude, wrong anime.”
Finally the last bit: HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS ARE FUNKY! My favorite moment this week is the quiz show theme with a random friend testing the girls’ smarts aka highschool girl power. The new girl thinks girls who don’t know anything are much cuter! Wait… smart girls can’t be cute?! She must be high on something. While she asks the questions, Yanagai and Ikushima screw up their answers making the other girl angry leaving Habara as the cute winner to end the episode.
Girl-“Who is this person?!” Yanagai-“Joe momma?!” Ikushima-“My uncle!”
HOW CAN YOU GIRLS BE CUTER THAN ME!
Habara-“That is the end! Hurry and leave before she flips your table.”
Extra daily lives
Hidenori-“POWER UP! I WILL DEFEAT YOU!” Tadakuni-“Bored now…”
Whoever they are, tell them to shave their face.
Harsh teacher doesn’t like your future choices.
I support this couple forever.
The first time I heard Hidenori’s brother (Yuusuke) speak in one of the previous episodes, I almost faceplanted on the fact that Takahiro Sakurai voiced such a small role. But guest cameos became quite a given for Nichibros with famous seiyuu like Nobuhiko Okamoto, Fukuyama Jun and Yuki Kaji voicing small roles. I was just happy to hear him again and more so now because he has recently won the Overseas Fans Choice Award in the Sixth Annual Seiyuu Award for his roles in [C] and FF VII: Advent Children. That’s some achievement, not to mention they missed out Yukiatsu from AnoHana and Old-baba from Soredemo Machi.
Interesting info aside, another good episode of NichiBros minus the Dragon Quest. I somehow never got into RPG games so even if the faces and voices by Tadakuni and Hidenori were pretty funny (Depp reference ftw~), the concept was lost on me. Compared to the previous episode, we had less segments of why-girls-are-so-scary. But the guys got it rough with so many overbearing sisters (my parents should be glad that I have no brother xD), who can kill anytime they like. Tadakuni’s sister is one thing but now Yoshitake’s older sister has a crush on Yuusuke?! He should definitely watch out for his dear life.
Like Fosh, the best moment for me was the Literature Girl Knockout. I mean, DUUUDE, wasn’t that a series of unfortunate events?! That must have really hurt and I don’t even know what she wanted to say. Another lame line or her fangirly/creepy faces? But man, Hidenori, you lost your chances with her. You should have given the usual shoulder lift to her home to score some bonus points. Girls like dependable guys but of course, this is not shoujo but a comedy series. Also, was that Shizuko Itou I heard as the Literature Girl lookalike in the last segment going crazy about stupid girls being cute? Somebody correct me on this as I’m not as good with recognizing female seiyuu.
Wow this was a crazy ass episode this week! Like the gag bits? I don’t understand the whole magical zipper thing…again what the hell?! I still laughed watching the crazy reactions from Tadakumi and Yoshitake because I made the same face like them. After that the guys used their imagination to pretend like they were in an actual video game?! That was really strange and random, but I think most of us have done something like that before. Instead of a video game I am sure most of us have played “house” with siblings or friends? I do remember a few things like that with my cousins, but they always ended fast with the younger siblings wrecking everything…
That older brother character… I was expecting him to be more mature than the younger guys, but he was just like them! Then again I am an older brother myself and I hardly act my age…not sure if that is a bad thing or not? Anyway it was hilarious to see that older sister have some interest in Yuusuke. Although she is very violent, I don’t think he could survive.
The best moments ever was the short bit with the literature girl…holy crap she really had some terrible luck this time! I swear she made me laugh so much this week. Losing her papers, slipping, crying and getting knocked out cold? Wow… she sure is unlucky! Either way it appeared as if she was about to actually talk to Hidenori. I think I would have had the same reaction like he had after that girl had that fit of bad luck…
Hidenori-“I can’t run anymore…save yourself bro.”
More daily lives of high school boys! What kind of fun adventure will we have next time with the usual trio, Motoharu, Tadakuni’s sister, Karasawa and more random characters?
