Ooooof course they have a limo.
|Argh, sorry for the late post. I’m drowning in episode endings between this, Free!, Genei, Rozen Maiden, Danganronpa, and maybe a few more (because I don’t know when to stop).|
Looks like Ayato is first up for vampire of the week (I assume the formula will go like that), and unsurprisingly, the ore-sama gets right to claiming Yui as his property. As you saw, he changes moods fast (from takoyaki to blood with no warning whatsoever). The pool was pretty bad (lol of course out heroine can’t swim), but I’m still waiting on Kanato to upstage that at some point. Plus I guess Ayato did go rescue her when she was drowning. Ignore the part where he just kind of drank her blood again, and it looks like he was being nice. …I wouldn’t be too worried about Yui completely missing her first day of class. She’ll be missing a lot more in the near future, either due to anemia or things like this. Hell, I don’t even know what the school is doing in the plot in the first place other than to give a sense of the character’s ages, and as an excuse for all of them to wear uniforms. It’s not like anything important actually ever happened in class (as far as I know at this point).
Well, well. It looks like they are attempting to have a plot after all. The flashback with Ayato is pretty important, and as you may have guess from it, this series runs off the basis that every single sadist here was screwed over in their childhood. This is why they’re the lovely people they are today. Of course, this doesn’t mean that they had to stay assholes their entire lives, but after some analysis (and playing more of the game), I’ve realized that they’ve never had anyone really present to stop them. Not that they really change that much when they get er, friendlier with Yui, but everyone else in their lives have been less powerful than them, and have probably either died, or were too afraid to say anything (plus they’re even above most of their own kind, due to their parent’s aristrocratic-ish lineages). I think a big reason that Yui doesn’t die is the same reason why her blood seems so interesting to every one. …Not that anyone else has really had any, but you probably could have guessed that everyone would like her blood due to otome game cliches.
Speaking of Yui, prepare for a lot of her still interacting with the other characters, even when they treat her like this. All throughout the routes, all she really gets in return for her general concern is blood loss or being called “annoying” (… or worse), but then she continues to bother interacting with the other characters instead of ignoring them or something. And amazingly, it works. Somehow enduring all of the mistreatment, Yui manages to endear herself to the other characters. Maybe because she actually seems to care, unlike the other characters. You saw the flash of Ayato’s childhood. Though like I said in the episode before this, don’t expect the guys to change too much.
I feel like I’m talking a lot about plot circumstances and nothing about what actually happened in the episode itself, but, uh… nothing much really even happened in the episode. We were introduced to Ayato, saw how he interacts with Yui, and that’s about it for now. Maybe that bit of him drowning as a child should count for something, but that’s probably not going to be explained for a while. There wasn’t even any real interaction between the brothers (not that they really ever interact), besides Reiji lecturing Ayato. Things are just getting started though. There have been hints at the plot too, aside from just the part with Ayato’s flashback. The other guy at the very end of the episode will be important. Actually, after Kanato’s route, everything else seems so much… lighter. Not that there was anything overly dark in the episode, but the pool is hardly mean compared to Kanato’s first scene like that. Even playing the game, Laito’s route is almost boring, and he’s the one with the NTR fetish. Oh well, the next episode looks like it should involve more siblings than just Ayato. …Among other visual clues that mean that Yui just might be screwed.
Someone should REALLY take that fork away from him.
