A Channel – 03

You’re obviously a creeper when you have a multicolored, patterned shirt~

~After watching the last episodes of Madoka last night, it feels good to watch some good ol’ innocent, slice of life |’D This show can be so refreshing at times…I’M GLAD YOU’RE HERE A CHANNEL! -cough- Now onto this creeper filled episode!

The girls’ day starts off normally as usual, that is, until they realize Tooru isn’t going to be with them in the morning. Nagi decides they should see just how Tooru acts in her homeroom. It turns our Tooru is actually very polite and helpful towards her teacher, and ends up getting embarrassed as she realizes the three girls have caught her.

During Tooru’s day, we finally meet Tooru’s own creeper, Yutaka. Tooru shares a book with her, and she admits that she’s been wanting to talk to her but never got the chance. Overexcited over the prospect of Tooru becoming her friend(?), Yutaka ends up dragging her to go get a drink. Tooru manages to break free and find comfort in hugging Run, Nagi, and in squeezing the life out of Yuuko.

Now it’s time for creeper number 2; Run’s creeper, the new Health Education teacher, Mr. Sato. He becomes infutuated with Run, err, Run’s forehead as he catches her walking in the hallway. Run senses nothing suspicious about him praising her forehead, while Nagi finds it quite weird.  Nagi catches them again while with Yuuko, this time with an angry Tooru trying to butt in. He gets away from Tooru this time after making a comment about her hair making her look like a sea urchin.

The day progresses on with more ditzy Run-chan moments, including her failure to work an MP3 player (which sends Nagi in a fit of rage) and accidentally stepping on Mr. Saito when entering the Health office.

Plus, we see more of Yutaka’s attempts to get closer to Tooru, which end up failing even more with the appearance of Mipo, who’s trying to stop her intense actions and make less trouble for Tooru.


Yet in the end, as Yutuka is yet again pulled away and scolded by Mipo, Tooru suddenly feels sad, missing her presence. To reassure herself, she runs to Run and the others’ classroom just to give Yuuko another squeeze~.

Time for some school-girl-bonus goodness!!:

Stealing kids, the obvious way

It’s okay Tooru! We’d still love you as a sea urchin!

How…did this happen?

Nagi, I love how you’re just staring so intently at this…

Is this how I look like when I’m explaining why I like Ciel from Kuroshitsuji?




End thoughts: (SO MANY SCREENCAPS. I’m sorry! I couldn’t help myself) I haven’t mentioned this before but, I absolutely LOVE their voices. When ever Friday comes around, I look forward to not only the gorgeous animation, but to hearing their adorable voices! I usually listen to music when I have to re-watch and screen-cap the episodes, but for A Channel, I just can’t do that. It’s also what makes me love the insert songs they put into the episodes. I honestly don’t like character songs or OP, ED songs sung by the cutsie-sounding seiyuus themselves but this time around it’s actually nice to listen to. I should probably learn the names of their seiyuus now…

Anyways, looks like it was time to introduce the creepers this episode! The both of them, Yutaka and Mr. Saito (they don’t specifically say the Health teacher’s name so I just looked it up myself) are absolutely hilarious. Yutuka is definitely my favorite out of the two because we, in an odd way, act very similar. I’m always trying to get closer to my cute little Vietnamese friend, who is actually a lot like Tooru with her serious look, and she ends up running away from me (-SOB- I FEEL FOR YOU, YUTAKA). One of my favorite things in this episode, other than my two favorite creepers, was that they did a bit more focus on Tooru. I’ve wandered what she acts like in class as well, and I want to see more of that. We usually just see the antics of Run, Nagi, and Yuuko, so giving some light onto Tooru by herself is great. I always tear up though whenever they show her looking for Run, like in that scene when she appears in their classroom and they’re gone. She just needs a hug…*imagines getting pushed away by Tooru*

Before I forget, because lately I’ve been forgetting my fangirl ramblings, TOORU WAS SO CUTE WHEN SHE WAS HUGGING EVERYONE! I WANT HER TO HUG ME~!! ;A; TOORUUU~!! *goes into Yutaka creeper mode*


It’s Summer time! You know what that means in these Slice-of-Life school girl shows; either bathing suit time or hot springs time. What’s your choice? But before that, the girls tells us that we have some obstacles to overcome before any bathing suits. Until next week then~!

    Tooru is too cute
    The nurse is too creepy
    Yutaka is crazy
    As a tech person, I got really angry for Run-chan opened the MP3 Player!
    And Yuuko still has big boobs 😀

    • Hoshi says:

      ~All so true XD
      YES; as a person who has an emotional attachment to her MP3 player, I’d act just as Nagi did about taking it apart LOL.

    Tooru is hilarious, I wish I had a friend like that, just everyday there’s this little package of fun for me to enjoy 🙂 Great to hear OD, even if he is the slightly disturbing nurse, with an eye for foreheads…and sea urchins 🙂
    Glad to see more characters coming into this, like Mipo-rin (who reminds me of Yano-chin from KnT for some reason) and the other girl (who reminds me of a female version of Joe from KnT, or that other girl who always sat behind Sawako)
    Can’t wait for the next episode since it’s all about weight; please wait for Nagi to rage 😀

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Oh same here ;3; (I mean, one of my friends is similar to Tooru, but a lot meaner |’D)
      I’m glad for the new characters as well; it brings more interesting events and keeps me entertained.
      I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS WEIGHT EPISODE! Nagi raging is the best x’D

    Yutaka (or how I remember her name: Yukata the dress) is so… :\ Idk Hoshi, I can’t bring myself in liking that kind of character, and that health teacher! Oh god.. please don’t turn this show into something we all dread!!1 D:

    I really liked how they focused more on Tooru as well, I didn’t expect her to be the ‘brain’ of the class. Tooru and Nagi face off!?!??! Oh yes please *smirks*

    Though I’m sure you know by now that if I was to pick a favourite it would have to be Yuuko. 😛 She’s got the Mio resemblence so I can’t see why she wouldn’t be my favourite, unless I’ve got a loose screw in my brain. Maybe Nagi can help ‘put me back together’ xD

    I’m loving every song they’ve used in the series thus far. Though I get the feeling it’s just a way to promote those songs or make money from it… If they do continue to add a different song each episode, sure it’s original in my case but I wouldn’t really like how they are portraying it. Music with a meaning is good music. Music used for money purposes are shit music.

    • Hoshi says:

      ~LOL It’s all right Tofu!! I doubt they’d (Tooru, really) let the health teacher do anything to poor Run x’D

      OF COURSE. I saw your comment about how she resembles Mio last week, so I was expecting this, hahaha.

      Same here! I’m pretty sure that’s the underlying reason why they’re doing it because they do have to make money, but the songs are meant to compliment or create the mood for a certain scene ^^

    again they managed to perfectly extend the scenes from the manga. run didnt mention not having a computer in the manga.
    I love this show. a light slice of life without jokes that seem forced.

    • Hoshi says:

      ~The jokes really do go with the flow, thanks to how they manage to nicely extend those scenes in the manga. They’re doing such a great job on this anime~.

  5. Elyon says:

    That school nurse had me laughing so hard XD “Her forehead is so cute….her forhead….” Peterfiles FTW!

    • Hoshi says:

      Watch, I’m going to start checking out guy’s foreheads now, hahahahahaha!!!

  6. Sabine says:

    Tooru reminds still of me… xD I use to suddenly hug too without saying why and Thanks for the sea urchin comment mr. creepy-anime-character<- was in my mind when I watched the episode Dx *is worried about my own hairstyle, the same as Tooru* too.. same *down* D"X It´s not a sea urchin-!
