Yozora-”No one touches my harem and gets away with it.”
|Ku ku ku! Welcome back readers to another hilarious episode review for Haganai NEXT or are we going to have another drama filled adventure? Last week it appeared that Rika finally figured everything about Kodaka and how he reacts to feelings of love and friendship, but enough about that! How are you doing this week, Kara?|
|PFFFT AHAHAHAHAHA a day later and I’m still laughing at “yaoi hole”. …No, I don’t have anything else particularly intelligent to say here.|
Scientific friendship part two
Together these two are amazing!
Is it really game over for Sena?! I certainly hope not!
Rika continues to steal the spotlight with each passing episode almost becoming the second main character of the series even though technically those roles go to Sena and Yozora, but lately these two have taken a backseat leaving Rika alone to figure out the mysteries of Kodaka. I thought the last episode was shocking with Kodaka yelling at Rika, but this time we had another reveal at the end of the episode with Sena blurting out that she actually loves Kodaka?! Wait what is going on there?! Also he retreated out of the club room pretending like he didn’t hear her surprise confession? I guess in the end he revealed how he treats everyones feelings of friendship or love. Aside from that I loved those scenes with Kodaka visiting Rika who caught a fever while editing their movie; however, most of their chat revolved around the strange talk of the “yaoi-hole” from Rika’s BL manga!? That scene I swear I just could not stop laughing, proving once again that Rika is still awesome and the best character in Haganai. After all of that madness we had Aoi pop as she tried her best to shut down the club, but thankfully Yozora and Sena kind of worked great as a team using their individual skills and connections to put a stop to Aoi’s plans! That was awesome just to see the two of them defend their club from the nosy student council.
Rika-”I should add this scene to the movie!” Kodaka-”Uh no please!!”
I’m glad we can trust Yozora and Sena with the club at least. I actually enjoyed watching Yozora shoot down every single one of Aoi’s arguments to break up the club (they should have her being awesome like that more often). Between that, and Sena blatantly abusing her power as the chairman’s daughter, I’d say that the club is in good hands. Actually, Yozora had a lot of good parts this episode, like with her line about all of them needing to watch the finished movie together. …Not that the movie had a plot (though it did have ‘plots’), but you could see all of the work Rika put in there. I agree, Yozora. The movie just wouldn’t be the same without all of them there (plus Rika was the one who put the most work into it there, it just wouldn’t be nice to watch it without her).
Now for the ending drama…. Sena chose a rather bad time to confess since Kodaka still can’t even handle calling people friends, let alone saying that he likes them (which I don’t know if he’s even thought about dating before). This might open up something in the future and make Kodaka think about the way he views things. For now though, all it seems like it will do is make things in the Neighbour’s Club really awkward. Though really, any episode before this would be a bad time to directly confess too. What will Yozora do about this? I don’t know. I think first, we just need Kodaka to get over his fear of having/ recognizing people close to him. He has his own issues to deal with before I’m expecting a happy ending.
Fun with Rika and Sena
We demand more Rika fanservice!
Do you accept her challenge?!
Damn it Sena! Just kiss her already, you know you want too…
Interesting episode of Haganai NEXT this week! I loved those moments between Kodaka and Rika the most along with her failed attempt to get him to read out a yaoi scene? I admit that comment about the yaoi-hole had me laughing so much, but I was shocked at how nice Yozora was acting when she found out Rika was not feeling good and I agree with her mindset, if they can’t watch it together as a club then what is the point in watching it? That was a nice touch from Yozora and the other club members. Now for the out there moments like Sena’s outburst that she LOVES Kodaka? That caught me off guard and judging by the reaction from the other club members it was a shock to them as well, but what about Yozora? What will she do now? I assume she will have to confess her feelings to Kodaka? Then again, he kind of ran away acting like he didn’t hear her…what the hell bro? That is not even cool…
Well, this series seems like it came to an end REALLY fast. Not that it’s quite at the ending yet, but still. Anyways, I didn’t quite get the movie screening I wanted, but Yozora showed off the good points of her personality really well this episode, so I’ll take it. I guess the ending seems really quick was because nothing feels like it’s been resolved? I mean, Kodaka still has issues and while Sena confessed, I’m kind of doubtful that this will go anywhere for a while. Hell, even though Yozora had that moment a couple of episodes ago where Sena told her to stop putting so much emphasis on the past, that doesn’t really seem resolved to me. Especially since from her reaction to Sena’s childhood friend announcement, she’s still holding her relation to Kodaka that way in high importance. I can live with that though provided that Kodaka just… gets a grip. Soon.
A new challenger for Kodaka’s growing harem?
The final episode?!
