Kate loves to watch your reactions this week
|Last week was filled with maids and lots of random drama between Sena and Yozora and the reveal of Kobato’s birthday this time!? Sounds like we are going to be in for some hilarious stuff right, Kara?|
|Birthdays mean two things: partying and awkward gifts~. Whether the party will be uneventful or not is debatable thinking back to that after exam party, but I’m kind of concerned as to what Rika’s gift is going to be…|
Happy birthday Kaboto!
Sena-“Whoa! This is perfect for Kobato-chan right?” Kodaka-“…………..”
Happy birthday, Kobato! At least Sena gave you a useful gift.
Soooo Kabato got some meat on her birthday from Sena? I was not expecting such a gift from her, but that is fine because I was totally thinking it was going to be something super perverted. Besides the odd gift provided by Sena, it was a lot of fun watching the others go shopping together even though I think we all knew that Yozora and Rika would kind of drop out early and go home, but we should mention the outfits!? Like Rika, Yozora and of course Yukimura trading with Yozora afterwards because whoa! She was looking quite nice this time. So, what was the highlight of the special Kobato birthday explosion!? I enjoyed watching Maria giving that gift to Kaboto even though that short d’awww moment quickly turned into a screaming contest between the two girls, but that is to be expected since both of them are young and won’t admit to being friends! ONE DAY I hope they will be able to get along. Also joining in the festivities was Kate who is another girl that has problems admitting she wants to have friends; however, what was she hinting at by mentioning she knew Pegasus? Are they hinting at a possible surprise sister reveal between Sena, Kate and Maria because she did mention something to Kodaka before she left that he will find out the answer to that really soon. So does anyone out there really care if that comes true? Personally I think it could work as a plot line that basically gives Sena a little sister of her own to spoil, but on the other hand I think that Kate will have a similar relationship just like Yozora and Sena. However, who knows maybe they will become great friends.
Kodaka-“Damn this is the longest freaking text ever.”
Sena-“It’s not like I want to ride an elevator with you or anything!”
So Kodaka continues to be somewhat oblivious and Sena kind of sort of confesses. It was pretty convenient for everyone to leave the two of them alone, but Haganai really looks like it’s going down the Sena route. I’d have thought that Yozora would have objected to the two of them going off alone, but maybe she was more concerned about her bare midriff to care about love rivals at the time. Kodaka had a good line about Rika’s hair (showing how observant he is), but I guess when it comes to romance, the guy is blind.
On to the main point of the episode: Kobato’s birthday. Maria’s gift to Kobato was… oddly normal (I think we all know what I was expecting). But to be fair, so was Rika’s. Like the preview was talking about childhood friends, I bring back my point from a few posts ago about the two of them becoming childhood friends. That would be absolutely adorable. Speaking of Maria, Kate was so… okay with Kodaka accidentally seeing her naked. It was refreshing to have her laugh it off where in your typical harem show, Kodaka would have been screamed at and beaten within an inch of his life. Her explanation of “it was an accident so it’s okay” was cool too. I wasn’t too fond of her when she first showed up (since she seemed unnecessary at the time and I thought she was like Maria), but Kate has become a pretty good character in a rather short amount of time. It seems like she’s no too much competition for Yozora and the rest either since Kodaka didn’t think twice about letting her and Maria stay over. …But I can see where Kobato is getting concerned. If Kate has that big of a bust at age 16, I imagine that Maria would be close to that too at that age. Kobato seems to be fighting a losing battle.
Fun with Blank
Rika you are crazy but we love you for it.

Kate or Sena? Who has the best meat…
Now this wasn’t the most exciting episode of all time because it followed Kobato’s birthday, but of course I did not mind a whole lot because Hanazawa Kana always does a fantastic job as Kobato! Even though like I said before she tends to argue and scream a lot whenever Maria is around. However, I liked the possible hints of a surprise sibling relationship reveal between Sena and Kate and if it turns out to be true I wonder how Sena will react to discovering that news because she really wants a little sister of her own to spoil like Maria? Other than tiny development in the story we had the usual reactions from Rika and Yozora wanting to become Kodaka’s boyfriend as usual, but it is both funny and sad that the other girls realize they will never ever get past the friend zone! Keep fighting on girls YOU CAN DO THIS and again I have to mention Yukimura looking great in her new outfit and maybe she will wear other clothes like that? So what did you like about this episode? Kobato’s birthday, the fancy clothes or hints at new sisters for Sena?
This episode was pretty fun~ ….mostly because it was about Kobato. It was nice to see everyone being considerate to her by giving her normal gifts instead of forcing their preferences on her. It certainly makes them all seem like they’ve grown up a bit since the beginning of the first season (where I can see them all getting her something weird). …Though Sena’s was still slightly creepy xD. It would have been so much better without the “think of it as me” line. Oh well, they all tried and that’s the important part. Maybe it was because it was for Kodaka’s sister, but I’d like to think that they did this for Kobato herself. As for the other characters, they need to step things up if they ever want to get ahead of Sena. Things worked out well for her this episode since her and Kodaka had a pretty serious (well, serious for this show) conversation and they seem pretty comfortable around one another. I’m sure Yozora can catch up soon though if she tries.
Nuns are wacky!
Yozora gets really angry!?
