Tada-kun wa Koi wo Shinai Episode 9: And so it begins

Click here to check this post out on my personal website.

While this episode actually delivered a lot of scenes that I found funny, I feel like I’m starting to become disenchanted with the series. I think that devoting the episode to Mitsuyoshi being sick fell flat for me. There didn’t seem to be any sort of spin in this episode. It was pretty normal for a romance episode in which one character gets a cold.

I have to hand it to Alec. She definitely delivered on this goal.

I was kind of hoping for a bit more from the supporting cast after these scenes. There were a couple of moments when the scene shifted to Hina as she watched Mitsuyoshi helping Teresa. Those scenes really made me think that she was picking up on Teresa’s feelings because of her own unrequited love, but it doesn’t really go anywhere. She just asks whether Teresa was acting weird, which is something anyone could have noticed.

This transition from a motivational speech to a view of normal slacking was great.

Okay, that was way more text than I was expecting. It’s kind of late in the game to pull out those verbose photography explanations, isn’t it?

Seriously, I don’t understand what this conversation contributes to the situation.

Teresa’s determination sure crumbled quickly.

I guess this doesn’t really count as a cliffhanger since the preview pretty much confirms that Teresa will ask Mitsuyoshi to see the Rainbow Shogun show with her. I sure hope they show a brief glimpse of the serious guy, since an earlier scene suggested that he was going to buy tickets for the show after hearing from the old couple. That’s just good continuity if it happens.
