Meat sports 2013. Be there!
|Time for more crazy fun with the cast of Haganai! Last week it seemed to just focus on Yozora’s progression or maybe it was a reminder that she needs to stop being so bitchy and learn to actually make some friends? Not to mention the club members might learn the fact that she is Kodaka’s childhood friend from the past…So, what are you thinking this week, Kara?|
|What am I thinking? Uhhh… Not much. The childhood friend thing was completely blown over this week despite the cliff hanger in the last episode. I don’t know why, but I was expecting lasting character development and life lessons learned. …Silly me.|
Tsundere or moe maids?!
Rika-“It’s not like I wanted to get dressed up for you or anything… bakaaaa!” Kodaka-“Uh what?”
Sena-“I love you so much, master!” Kodaka-“I don’t like this…someone help me.”
Yozora-“Uhhh I just wanted to clean the room…yeah…that!” Kodaka-“Suuureeeeee you do.”
For the past few episodes we have hinted at the popular subject of maids, like the whole reveal around Yukimura and how she ditched the maid look for a butler uniform? I guess you could say Yozora has a thing for dressing up Yukimura, but we hit more on that subject later in the episode after Kodaka tries to get everyone to participate in a school festival. However, Sena and a few other club members want to try running their own café? And what does every café inspired club need? Maids and waiters of course, which brings us to Rika who wants to show everyone she has what it takes to be a maid! Then again her idea of a maid was to act bitchy aka act like a hardcore Tsundere. I will admit I was laughing my ass off the entire time while she was being mean towards Kodaka because every week Rika does something random and hilarious that I find amusing! That said we have Sena who doesn’t like to be shown up so she also becomes a maid, but she was a moe maid rather than bitchy like Rika was until Yozora started to make fun of her ruining the fun for EVERYONE. I did find it kind of funny that Yozora tried on the maid outfit after everyone left? The look on Kodaka’s face and Yozora’s face was priceless! I swear that was one of the best reactions ever.
So which maid did you like more? Moe Sena, tsundere Rika or shy Yozora?
Yozora-“As of today we will become super pirate ninjas!” Sena-“That sounds like a terrible idea.”
Sena just wants to hug Kobato so badly right now.
Maids aside this episode (screw tsundere, Rika was pure tsun. …and it was hilarious), the characters are all frustrating me. OTL Sena is just so gullible, and Yozora totally plays on that. Sometimes that chemistry works for me. This week it didn’t. To finish Sena’s thoughts this episode that she was yelling at Yozora, she was most likely a bit happy at the fact that Yozora knew so much about her (or at least could ‘psychically determine’ so much about her). You know, kind of like a friend would. Now, I’m putting the blame on both of them this time since Sena really needs to start catching on about these things and Yozora needs to hold back. But really, watching them go like this every episode is becoming a bit tiresome. I agree with Fosh’s sentiments about the two of them resolving their differences soon, but that probably won’t happen since I think we’re just past halfway for the novels. Sigh.
I guess I should also mention this shortly, but that whole point about Yozora and Kodaka being childhood friends was important for a minute and then… completely ignored. I was expecting something bigger. Though to be fair, there’s nothing any of the other girls can really do about the situation and Kodaka and Yozora obviously aren’t closer because of it, so maybe it’s something that’s just better to accept and move on from.
Fun with Sena and Rika
The cow sound effects were so fitting in this short scene.
Rika-“Bitch, don’t make me jump over this table! I WILL DO IT!” Kodaka-“……”
Hnnnggggg Sena maid for the win.
No one can win that ultimate challenge.
Interesting episode this week even though I assumed the sixth episode would be centered around a swimming pool or a tropical beach setting because those episodes seem to pop up a lot in the middle of any anime series, but for the most part the episode followed the subject of club activities and maids! LOTS AND LOTS OF MAIDS! I was disappointed that we didn’t get to see more of Yozora as a maid, but I will admit that she was kind of cute and there was that one line from Yukimura that shocked me! She actually cursed at Sena? I was like whoa! I wonder if Yukimura has been hanging around Rika after school, that aside there was only one moment that hinted at possible drama between Sena and Yozora because she got in trouble again at school. Thankfully nothing serious happened even though part of me wants to see the two of them resolve their problems! I was happy that Kobato was around to calm things down even though it did ruin the chance for something amazing for the story. Last thing to mention I guess everyone is perfectly alright that Yozora and Kodaka were childhood friends? I was expecting some kind of reaction from them, but nope it seems that everyone is perfectly fine with it.
Pfft ahaha. Kodaka might not be much more than the voice of reason, but he just gets these great reactions from time to time. Like when he found Yozora secretly dressing up as a maid and then slowly backed out of the room. That didn’t even need dialogue to be funny. Anyways, I’m still switching between thinking this show is hilarious and sitting there thinking how awkward the show is because everyone is acting really immaturely. There are hits and there are definite misses and while I’ll find one point of the characters acting out funny, I’ll find it annoying in a different situation. Oh well, I’ll stick through this with hopes that something interesting will happen during the cultural festival. Oh and Kobato’s birthday should be good~.
Kobato-“Ku Ku Ku…that Sena girl gives me nightmares.” Kodaka-“Happy birthday!”
Kobato’s birthday party!
