Wife, sister, what’s the difference?—Akane Iro ni Somaru Saka 4

That she is blood-related, only makes it so much more spicy.

There is a chinese saying that a desirable woman is one who is capable in the kitchen and presentable in the living room. I’ll say Minato is both AND a lot more in the bedroom. Just try to keep your eyes away from these:

The trick is how to stop staring.

Oh, my hopes and dreams!

Would I not want to sink my teeth into...

Would I not want to sink my teeth into...

Jun’ichi, you bastard, I salute you.

*Gulp*  I think I just leaked something.

Psychologists say there is a fine line between the senses of fear and arousal, of which Minato delivers both brilliantly, marinating us with flavors of lust, fear, awe, and admiration—all served up on the same plate. The whole presentation is marred only by the serving of the innocuous bluefin, which should have been instead the fugu, a fish whose deadly poison tests the bravery of every young man who dares to put his tongue on, much like the forbidden fruit Jun’ichi is thinking of tasting.

Jun'ichi about to offer Minato an alternative equipment that can also put out fire.

There is another saying: behind every great man there is an able woman. Minato’s coolheaded demeanor amid a sea of chaos would certainly qualify her as able, unlike the helpless, snotty princess who precipitated the whole mess. But damn it, that is exactly why Minato will lose out to Yuuhi at the end, not because Minato is Jun’ichi’s sister, and not because Yuuhi is his fiancé, but because Minato is not the damsel in distress like Yuuhi is. I fear that I’m repeating my True Tears mistake: cheering for the girl that can never be. :_(

    On the True Tears thing I know what you mean. Wonder if I’m just crazy supporting the girl I just know won’t be the one to win. Though not like Jun and Yuuhi don’t have enough flaws that they would be sparing others a lot of sorrow in terms of dealing with them.

    But really Minato proved in this episode how much of a cut above she is compared to the rest of the cast. The fish cutting display definitely was part of it. Can kick into a serious mode, cook, level headed enough to deal with flaws of others, looks great, and really isn’t a damsel in distress.

    Oh well can at least support her and see how things go.

    Somehow, seeing Yuuhi going yandere seems more acceptable than Minato going batshit insane… then again, I don’t want either.. ^_^

    Incest ending please.

    @FlareKnight, all the qualities you spoke of Minato are what make a girl desirable to any normal male, except idiotic male leads in anime.

    @meganeshounen, huh? Yuuhi, yandere? When did I miss the gentle and loving side of her? She’s always been the ball-busting bitch. And Minato going batshit crazy? Which show are you watching? 🙂

    @Shin, yes. Be it either Minato x Jun’ichi or Yuuhi x Jun’ichi, but in the latter case, please have Jun’ichi’s Jame-Bond parents revealed at the end that Jun’ichi was the long lost heir of the Katagiri family.
