Wow… this was a really really good episode of Hourou Musako.
Takatsuki is sooo freaking cool ^^… she finally mustered up the courage to come to school in a boys uniform..
Ok, first we get the shipping done first…
Now to the serious business side of things..
I really wasn’t expecting this to be animated…good on Noitamina for doing it..
So yeah, Doi suggests that Nitori go to school dressed as a girl.. and despite getting good advice and warnings not to do it… Nitori goes right ahead and does it. Brave kid..
I really like the way how they had the mini-monologue from Mako after the credits telling us how badly everything went down..
Based on the previews the next episode I guess will focus on the fall-out. I feel really bad for Anna..poor girl.
Ok, so a few thoughts on this episode..
Yes Nitori was brave to do what he did.. but for me it was reckless, stupid and selfish (I felt the same way when I read the manga..this is what went through my head ‘shit me. I can’t believe he actually did it..’). Takatsuki could do it because people saw her as dressing like a guy, not pretending to be a guy (although I’m sure Takatsuki was pretending to be a guy)..Nitori, well he can’t do it(/or wasn’t suppose to do it) because of society and all… I know its unfair…but that’s how things are. He also really should have taken in other people’s feelings into consideration. Especially Anna.
Chi-chan gave Nitori really good advice, and Takatsuki straight out told him not to do it, because they care about him. Nitori chose to ignore all that and do something that Doi suggested on a whim…Crikey, I’d understand if Doi and Nitori were close friends, but Notori hated this guy.. Why Nitori? Why?!
Anyway, despite the touchy subject and all.. it was fantastic episode. A great way to build up to the series finale.
[Yi, if you’re reading this. Sorry..my bad, I guess they did decide to really focus on the heavier themes to finish the series off…
It’s still a really good show…]
