  • Uhh what just happened?

    For once, Aoi and Kaoru aren't found together, discussing why their blind relationship is the way it is. Instead, it's Taeko and Kaoru who are on a date that was set up by the local Cupid, Chika. It first started out when Kaoru was tricked into taking a shower with Taeko, which puts both people in a very tight situation when Tina and Mayu decide to take a bath as well. Chika also tries to set up another date between them in the festival. Though it didn't really work out in their favour, at least not in Kaoru's. Due to Taeko's clumsiness, she would somehow cause trouble for him, like spilling his own food on him, smacking him across the face accidentally, etc. Though Kaoru tells her it was actually fine, which compelled Taeko to tell him her true feelings, but he would never hear because of the on going fireworks. It was then decided she would leave it at that since she knew she couldn't make Kaoru happy because of her clumsiness.

    This episode reminds me of those American movies where a caretaker is forced to take care of a bunch of kids, and in a matter of seconds, after all the trouble between the two sides occur, the situation is resolved within four minutes while a current popular song is playing in the background. Here, it feels like the relationship between Taeko and Kaoru was compressed in just one episode, and in the end leaves a lot to be desired. It's really a disatisfying episode. The only good thing about it was the situation where Kaoru was entrapped within the showers, trying to escape in order to prevent misunderstandings.moreless

    • Taeko: I have to try harder much much harder so that I can do anything like miss Aoi. So I can be strong will like miss Miyabi. So I can be bright like Tina senpai and so I can be as honest with myself as miss Mayu. I have to become a wonderful woman so that I am worthy of him and I'll have to try even harder than I am now.
      Chika: You've sure changed a lot, Taeko.
      Taeko: Really?
      Chika: (talking about Kaoru) You used to be so afraid of spending time around guys, but when you're with big brother you're very natural. That's why I thought he was your boyfriend when I first saw him.
