Well, it was hardly his fault. First she trips over him, then lands her melon under his hand; next she traps his arm, squeezing his elbow along her “missing part.” And he gets this lucky by annoying the hell out of her.
Guys this lucky should not deserve a good ending. I don’t care how much good karma his James Bond dad is collecting, saving the world and all, but if this kid is getting dinner cooked by a hot sister, served by a tempest beauty, then has dessert in the form of melon handed to him and the Promised land dropped on him; if all that, while he is still being a total asshole, then I demand the principle of conservation of karma to require some shiny, sharp object in his future. Come on, you writers did not disappoint me in School Days, please don’t fail me now.
Basically, the second episode in any series slows down to introduce more of the characters. No exception here, but also not much revelation either. Minato continues to be the perfect wife material, possessing more knowledge than Martha Stewart. There is a hint of her not being Jun’ichi’s blood related sister, which certain raises her stake in competition for him. Yuuhi, on the other hand, reveals her lack of experience with the mundane ways of the common people. Her buttons-pushing and knobs-turning restless syndromes are kind of entertaining if not introducing a whole new notion of electrical-appliance moe. Her incoherent morning gobble is cute, but it’s still no Nayuki (Kanon) morning zombie mode. The rest of the characters, not much is revealed.
On the story front, the acquaintance between Yuuhi’s influential family and Jun’ichi’s secret agent parents is so far just a plot device to bring the two leads into the same roof. Whereas Yuuhi’s status as a true Katagiri is certain, that of Jun’ichi and Minato as Nagase’s is not. Hopefully, this plot line may lead to some drama to add to its comedy.
