“That makes me a terrible person, does it not?” Yes, Kobeni, you are a terrible person for suffering from brain-damage. No doubt God is punishing you for your terribleness by having you suffer from brain-damage for forgetting something due to brain-damage. Trust me on this one, God works in mysterious ways. Especially those Japanese Gods. Bunch of crazies. Enough about Gods, though. We already talk about them plenty what with Noragami and Hoozuki no Reitetsu airing at the same time.
Mikakunin de Shinkoukei continues to be a delight to the sensations this week as we finally see our Mashiro venture into the unknown depths of the Student Council room. On another exciting note, after much anticipation she partakes of the British Scones. “All this and more, next week on Mikakunin de Shinkoukei!” Enough of that, though that is how they should hype up the previews.
Mashiro laments her role as Benio’s plaything.
You might recall, or are just learning now, that I was worried over how Dogakobo intended to introduce the first element of drama we have seen in the series: Kobeni’s accident and subsequent brain-damage. Now, I am going to continue calling it brain-damage because that is what it is. If you feel that is too harsh a label for what happened to her and are perhaps upset that I am calling a character you may have drawn attached to brain-damaged, tough luck.
Really, I have no idea why I keep digressing. Getting back on point, I was worried that the introduction of drama would be jarring considering how light everything has been up to now. I can safely say, however, that Dogakobo did an amazing job informing us, and Kobeni, about her accident.
Benio roofies Kobeni.
I really can not think of a better way they could have done it. Since it is at the very end of the episode, but not the very end, we will most likely find our cast beyond the confines of Benio’s room next week. There is little reason to believe that we will find ourselves continuing this conversation when we tune in for the next episode. This works well because we do not want to dwell on this little piece of drama. This is a comedy. It should never get too heavy.
Now, I am just overjoyed with Kobeni’s reaction. With this development it seems our boy Hakuya might be getting some requited love, though it may be out of a sense of guilt more than anything else. Running with that thought, if that happens I can foresee Hakuya realizing Kobeni guilt over the incident and getting upset, something along the lines of “Do not feel you have to love me, yada yada yada” making her realize just how in love she is with him. This is the kind of “drama” I can see down the road. Luckily, we will have plenty of potholes filled with comedy along the way. Mashiro and Benio will make sure of that.
“Do not jump. You are damaged enough as it is!”
Well, I have plenty more to say about this series, but I do not want to take up any more of your time. Now this next bit I am writing more for myself, but I think I will continue to keep my posts rather brief except I plan to occasionally write up a larger post about my thoughts on a broader level. This post is for episode three. It would not seem right to get to far ahead or behind this weeks episode in this post.
Either way, this site is still rather new. I have all the time in the world to figure out what new things I can do with it. For the time being, I am just going to keep things simple. I digressed far too much in this post…
