Older sisters love the older brother types.
|I’M BACK! …kinda. If I had to describe exams in one word, it would be !@(#&!@!@(*#&, but that technically isn’t a word, so I’ll just call them disgusting for now. This week I’m tagging along with Fosh who has been very awesomely covering Nichibros in my absence! Oh wait, you didn’t even notice I was MIA? Okay ;_; But seriously, I’ve dearly missed my weekly laughter pill, so let’s start it off!~|
|A huge welcome back to Miyu! I am glad you are back for now and tagging with me? Awesome! I think the last time we did it was with the first impressions for this series. You are welcome! I can’t get enough of this anime, but last week was kind of boring…hopefully this week is slightly better.Stories this week has Hidenori on vacation, while the boys’ student council has their own set of special issues…|
A contest of facial reactions! GO!!!
This crazy episode starts with Tanaka aka Yoshitake’s older sister claiming she is going out with Yuusuke aka Hidenori’s older brother, but she doesn’t want to kiss him at all? Yes, I think she has lost her mind! Yuusuke tries to hook her up with one of his friends and fails after they ask him if this mystery girl was cute or not… How can anyone tell in this series?! Half of the girls have missing eyes…
Yoshitake-”So, what about that guy?” Yuusuke-”Nope, that is my dad…” Hidenori-”Yeah…no.”
After the strange scene with the older siblings, we follow Hidenori on vacation with his grandparents, but he spends most of his time extremely bored! I know that feeling bro… One day Hidenori hangs out by a river, staring at the water and sadly no there was no literary girl this time. While standing there, he hears a girl shout something random and she dropkicks him into the river because she thought he was another friend of hers. Tough break for Hidenori! Even on vacation girls still kick his ass.
Hidenori-”It’s cool, I always wash my clothes while I wear them.” Emi-”Oh wow, same here.”
Hidenori-”Relax…this is for the girls to drool over.”
After getting out of the water, Hidernoi learns the girl’s named Emi and she has another guy friend that shows up later, but Hidenori shoves both of them into the river! Yes that is a great way to make friends…and it works because the three of them end up spending the summer together, while Emi starts to develop feelings for the new guy. Could this finally become his lucky break!? However during a festival Emi tries to confess her feelings to him but she learns Hidenori is actually her cousin! I was guessing something like that would happen… Oh that poor girl.
Hidenori-”Sorry, but I am not into wincest…” Emi-”GOD…IS…DEADDDDD.”
Up next! Daily lives of the student council with all of them helping around the school until they get annoyed at all the clubs asking for help, but they gladly spring into action when a random teacher walks by asking for assistance. The following day the vice president talks to Motoharu about seeing random girl’s panties one day…Motoharu thinks this is awesome, while the vice president is not quite sure he would call it awesome. They invite Ringo over to fix the computers so they can peek up her skirt! Yeah…Motorharu and the president freak out after she leaves. Wow, these guys are so desperate, aren’t they? At least they felt sorry afterwards for doing that.
Vice president-”Yep, we are going to lure an innocent girl into the room…” President-”We are terrible…!”
Motoharu-”OH MY GOD! WHAT DID WE SEE?!?” Vice president-”Something scary!”
Last mini-story has the president, vice president and Motoharu visiting a nearby school to work on their computers. When did these guys become experts in technology? Anyway, they meet with the other president who starts to stir up some drama around her own vice president and things slowly turn into which vice president has the better back story. Finally more high school girls are funky with a movie trailer like recap of Yanagai’s past when she had an epic battle against the evil Habara.
Using team work to take out your rivals? Priceless.
Daily lives of Marvel versus Capcom.
Awww don’t cry! There will be more posts in the future.
Extra high school fun.
Emi-”Boy meets boy… Wait don’t forget to bring me pictures…”
Hang in there, Hidenori! You can survive this.
Ringo is the best on internet.
Lots of lives were lost in the great elementary school wars.
I would say that this episode hasn’t been the best Nichibros action so far. It was interesting, but not really funny. I didn’t even laugh this time round. NICHIBROS YOU CAN’T LOSE YOUR FUNNY SIDE, I NEED YOU IN MY LIFE. D: I’m starting to think the producers are slowly running out of ideas and are trying really hard to think up random funny stuff and smash them together. I hope they have enough brain cells to last the remaining few episodes though, because I would be really disappointed if it continues to drop in entertainment value. It started off with so much hilarious potential!
When the episode started off with Yoshitake’s onee-san suddenly announcing the news of her relationship with Hidenori’s brother I thought we were finally going to get our first official couple in Nichibros but nooooo xD Trolling us every time haha. And as usual onee-san’s logic didn’t make sense – you want to date him but you can’t even bear to kiss him? Y U NO MAKE SENSE? Goes to show that older siblings may not necessarily be saner/more mature than their lil’ sisters and brothers! All the onee-chans and onii-chans here are even nuttier than their younger siblings hehe.
I also liked how they used such a common cliché – I mean, boy returns to childhood place and has an uncanny meeting with a girl; girl then falls in love with boy who is returning to childhood village, and decides to confess to him when he is leaving, only to find out that he’s some sort of distantly-related cousin? Sounds like about 12308123 other sappy movies nowadays xD I knew it was going to have an anticlimactic ending (as usual) but I didn’t expect that kind of cheesy clichédness. That was enjoyable~
All in all, this episode was… okay? Maybe it’s because I’m getting kind of used to Nichibro’s form of humor, so I’m not finding it as refreshingly entertaining as it was when I just started off as it’s getting dry. :\ Nevertheless I still have great, great hopes for this show as it has brought lots of laughter in its early days! Also I missed Tadakuni this episode. HOW CAN ONE OF THE MAIN CHARACTERS NOT EVEN MAKE A SINGLE APPEARANCE? >: I DEMAND MOAR TADAKUNI NEXT EPISODE!
Awesome episode this week! Way better than the bug infested episode from the previous week. This time they actually managed to have a story with Hidenori’s summer trip; I thought that mystery girl was actually Ringo. However, it was not her at all but a brand new character voiced by Kaori Mizuhashi aka Mami from Madoka Magica; it also helped with Hidenori shouting TRIO FINALE! when she kicked him into the river… Wow, what a great reference in this episode. How many of you were thinking the same thing that Emi was actually his cousin? Ahahaha… that was hilarious and sad for Emi’s feelings.
The starting part with the older sister and characters was great! I laughed so much when Yuusuke was looking through his phone and every other guy was a pervert?! That dude needs to get some new friends and quickly… And why the imouto didn’t want to kiss him? Poor guy, he can’t get a break anywhere. Agreed there, Miyu, at least we know the older siblings are just as mental as the younger ones in this series.
We sure got a lot of scenes with the student council and the vice president sure gets angry really fast doesn’t he? Maybe they forgot what the student council actually does as in help the school… I couldn’t help but laugh when they invited Ringo over to fix the network? Good god, if she ever found out what they did, she might murder all of them! Ah well, at least Ringo didn’t find out… And finally the high school girls are funky? That was amazing! It felt like I was watching some movie trailer where kids fight other kids. I’m just glad this was a great episode.
Time for an amazing race?
Next time! High school boys and fun with bikes.
