Mayo Chiki Episode 7

So, this episode starts with Jirou running into Konoe, who asks him to run away with her (no big deal…happens all the time). However, Jirou soon finds out that she has drugged him (but no before noticing that he smells of stew and a woman), and he awakes to find Kanade lying next to him in bed (standard). Kanade explains that she has run away from home (sound familiar?) and that she has taken him to an inn to help him with his gynophobia. We are then treated to the obligatory beach scene in the series. Kanade tries to “treat” Jirou by forcing him to put sunscreen on her (oh, the horror…), while Konoe takes an interesting approach to common beach activities such as splitting a watermelon…with a spiked club. Jirou escapes to buy some drinks, but finds Narumi, Kureha, and Usami working at the restaurant on the beachside. Konoe shows up, and Jirou is forced to take some extreme measures to hide her identity…GLASSES. Kanade is able to create the identity Takanashi Punyuru for Konoe on the spot, as Konoe’s cousin. Usami has an argument with Kanade over Jirou, and Konoe joins just in time to find out that Usami was the one that made stew for Jirou at the start of the episode. Konoe runs off and Jirou gives chase, with Kanade stopping Usami from following as well. Jirou explains his morning with Usami to Konoe, much to his embarrassment, which gets him punched, but Konoe accepts it. The two return to find that the rest of the girls will be staying with them at the inn, but this is all interrupted by the arrival of Konoe’s father.

An interesting episode…I dunno why I keep watching this, but I do……

Mayo Chiki Episode 6

The school festival has arrived! Jirou is stuck with Usami on a date and they two go around with Usami showcasing a bit of her tsundere attitude. Konoe interrupts them, though, as she has taken it upon herself to watch and make sure Jirou doesn’t do anything inappropriate. They all detour into an animal cafe which turns out to be run by Jirou’s sister’s class. After attacking Usami (not in the way you might expect), Kureha is distracted by Konoe’s presence. Usami gets angry at Jirou and yells at him to go ahead and spend time with Konoe. Jirou is about to leave, but he is attacked by a girl in a sheep costume who introduces herself as Narumi Knuckle, the chairwoman of the Committee. She warns him to escape so that he doesn’t get caught in the war between the Committee (the ones that are pro-Jirou+Konoe) and the S4 (the ones that are anti-Jirou+Konoe). She also warns him not to trust Usami, but Usami interrupts her to reveal that she is actually cat-ear girl. Usami turns to attack Jirou, but Konoe shows up to protect him. Konoe and Jirou escape with Narumi, and the three sneak into a secret meeting. The brains behind the operation reveals herself as Kanade (O.o), and she proposes a quiz event to decide the winner of the war. Konoe and Jirou take the Committee’s side, and when they reach the final deciding question, it turns out to be about Konoe’s first kiss. Although reluctant, she finally answers that it was in fact Jirou. The S4 gets mad and starts to move in on Jirou, but Jirou tries to stop them by confessing to Kanade. Kanade quickly rejects him, but it gives him the opportunity to escape. Jirou asks her about Usami and Kanade tells him that she quit the S4, prompting him to run off to find her. He finds her on the roof. Usami reveals that the real reason that she wanted to be with Jirou is because she saw Konoe as someone similar to her, and she wanted Jirou to change her in a similar way as he did with Konoe. Jirou drags her off and tells her about his gynophobia. Konoe shows up as well to apologize and Usami finally decides to change herself. She then vows to cure Jirou’s gynophobia. Interesting episode…this show…yeah…
