Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai: You see, Girls wearing Yukata are Extremely Cute

Hey minna,
back with another episode of Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai.  This is really the big head-turner episode of the season, leaving  you in awe at what happens. But I have to start at the beginning, with the decision to go a festival in town, and for once it wasn’t just a decree by Yozora, it was really a unanimous decision to go have some fun before school starts.

Making strides against their anti-social tendencies, Yozora and Rika both find themselves quite comfortable at the festival, spending time with the other members of the Neighbor’s Club.  And who could stay unhappy with cute girls in yukata around? (Nobody, that’s who.)   After they enjoyed their fair food, well, everyone but Kodaka really, who’s one desire was to find better takoyaki, even with all the girls in yukata surrounding him, priorities I guess.

After an evening of fun and prizes, especially for Rika who walks away with a new game console.  The club decides to call it a night, and Yozora and Sena decide on a draw in their competition.  To kill time until a ride can get there to take everyone home, the gang fires off some prize fireworks, fun is had and it looks to be a classic summer ending…until Yozora’s hair starts smoldering.  Quick and responsive, Kodaka grabs the bucket of water and tells Yozora to turn around, swiftly dowsing her.  Not exactly the most flattering thing to happen to you, Yozora then walks home alone…not to be seen at the club room or around school, until she’s called from role on the first day.

Yozora walks in just as the teacher calls her name, and the shock of the episode, her hair is cut shorter. This jogs Kodaka’s memory, that Yozora was the friend he left years back.  Making for a tearful reunion, I’m left wondering how the season will wrap up.  I honestly don’t think Sena has much of a chance anymore, unless Kodaka and Yozora just totally ignore the fact that they both remember being childhood friends now.

Until next time,

(I personally think Yozora looks 100x cuter with the shorter hair, almost blacked out from sheer cuteness :3 )

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai: The Board Chairman’s Memories are Painful

Hey minna,
back with another episode of Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai.  After Yozora and Rika leaving the rest behind at the pool, Yozora decides to compensate by having a “Wear your Swimsuit to Meeting Day”…so what’s with the horsehead? Maybe it was best she didn’t get in the pool after all. And I was little disappointed when Rika went for such a normal swimsuit choice, but, in the end, maybe it was for the best.

After scaring all the little kids with a demon horse head, Yozora (in what can only be called a gift from God) agrees with Sena, the Neighbor’s Club should go to Sena’s family’s private beach for an overnighter training camp.  The date doesn’t really matter, because, as Yozora puts it, it’s not like anyone in the club has any friends to worry with….so she does realize that they still don’t have any friends.

But Sena makes sure to have her father’s permission to use the house first, which brings up Kodaka and Kobata, whom her father really wants to meet. Seems Pegasus (cool name, btw, I don’t see why he’s so mad) and Kodaka’s dad were best buds back in the day, which is he agreed to take them into the school even after entrance rush was over.  To relive some good ol’ times, Pegasus gets drunk and passes out on Kodaka’s bed in their guest room.  Not half as bad as whatever it is that made Kobata run screaming out of the bath, while a birthday-suit-clad Sena comes chasing after her…I did not see that coming.  My floor has a few new blood stains now, *nosebleed*.

More than just fanservice, Boku wa Tomodachi is starting to show that it really can have substance on comedy alone.  Sena’s father is a laugh and a half, and even though I feel so sorry for Kobata, her and Sena make a funny pair. But, at the same time, I still find the need to point out…WHY DON’T THEY HAVE FRIENDS YET? I know it’s trivial and not the “real” point of the series, but it bugs me to think they don’t think of each as friends yet. But that’s probably just me. Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai keeps up the comedy and the next episode, about their overnighter, looks just as funny.

Until next time,
