back again for the fourth episode the Fall 2011 series, Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai. The Neighbor’s Club gets two new members and we finally met the club’s moderator. With a few additional comedic bits here and there, this episode actually makes the Neighbor’s Club look like it wants to make friends (for once).
First up, the moderator, Marie Takayama, 10-year-old nun at the school. Originally tricked by Yozora into giving them the room and being their moderator, she first shows up asleep on the couch in the club room. Marie demands that they give back her naptime room…until Yozora, once again, pulls a fast one and tricks the young sister into being their moderator, because an adult wouldn’t just walk away…and, as we all know, Marie is quite growed-up.
Now to the fourth student to join the Neighbor’s Club, Yukimura Kusonoki. Gender confusion doesn’t begin to explain this character, who claims to be male, but all signs point otherwise, I don’t need to be physic to know how this character is going to develop…not that he (she?) has much chance of learning manliness from Kodaka, being constantly played around by Sena and Yozora as he is.
Finally, the newest member to the club, saved from the clutches of horny delinquents by Kodaka after passing out in the science room, Rika Shiguma. I see her role as mainly being additional competition for Yozora and Sena’s affection towards Kodaka.
Well, the cast seems complete…let the misadventures begin!
(I think Kodaka can sense the problems he (she?) has…)
Until next time,
