We’ll start off with these two, because that’s about all they were in the episode
We’re now heading to the short end of the season, and due to the 10-episode run, NouKome is going to get there before anything else. I don’t think we’ll get any sort of resolution to Kanade’s problem, but we’ll see if we have fun at least getting to the end of the series.
I’ll Pay You Money If You Say You Like Me
A confession from Konagi… but not that kind of confession
I’m surprised he hasn’t gone to this yet. Kanade’s continuing his plan of trying to get all the girls to say they like him as a person. Or even because he blackmails them. After getting Yuragi and Ouka last episode, this time he works on Reikadou and Konagi, but both present some problems: Konagi’s from her secret protector club, and Reikadou’s because she can’t believe he just wants her to say she likes him. But after getting beat up, Konagi actually does say that she likes how he is (although that gets him beat up again). And Reikadou is exposed as having had breast augmentation, a secret she wants to keep, and is willing to do almost anything, including a lot of stuff that Kanade really doesn’t want her to do. So she’s really surprised when he’s fine with her just saying she likes him (looks like sincerity doesn’t mean anything for this goal, just the words). She’s even surprised that he’ll get down on his knees and beg immediately.
And she wonders if Kanade has any pride?
We can seeeeee youuuuuu
No, it’s not really much of a secret, but Furano loves cute things, like White Piggy. And Kanade gets more than he bargained for when he dresses up as White Piggy, a UOG mascot and property, in order to see if he can get Furano to say she likes him. Of course, given the lax rules of these missions, it doesn’t matter that she said “I like you” to Shirobuta-kun while Kanade was in the suit, he clears it, but it goes much farther than that when he manages to spend the whole afternoon with her.
Furano’s really turning into that ‘other’ kind of tsundere: The kind that’s completely tsun when the boy’s around, and completely dere when noone’s around (when it doesn’t do Kanade any good). So along with her confession about wanting a high school debut, and finding a boyfriend, and getting all nervous so that she ends up putting on an act that repels everyone. Well, everyone but Kanade, and his attention has gotten Furano into a pretty big crush on him. But of course, after she opens up to secret Kanade, he has to make another choice: expose to Furano that he heard everything, or lose his memory… and his porn collection. Of course, he picks the wrong one, and loses it all. I think he should definitely have gone for the first one and tried to get Furano to understand that he does accept her true self. What does he think she’ll do? Beat him up? I guess he’s doing it for her sake, so she doesn’t get super embarrassed, but there was an opportunity for a win here, and he punted instead.
Now there’s just one girl left (until they stick “Chocolacchi” on the team, but she’s an easy get), and will Seira go along with any of Kanade’s attempts? I hope they wrap this arc up before the end of the series, cause 4 more episodes seems really draggy.
Bonus Boob Bonanza
It’s almost unbelievable that the same voice actress plays both Furano’s dere side and tsun side. Furano really can be cute, but I think Kanade should have given it a go. The worst that would happen is that she never wants to see him again, but surely it wouldn’t have been that bad, right? And then he would have kept his treasured collection!
