Now Then, Guess Who!
With the episode starting through a Masato vs Rin battle, it looks like we’ve gone back to the light hearted view of things. The cats verses nail clippers was never a proper battle, and as such, Masato earnt the title of “Trash”, whilst highlighting why Rin’s a pretty enjoyable character to watch…at least, better than Konomari’s fiasco last week.
Continuing on at the odd pace, Rin and Riki end up being sent on a quest to find a new member of the Little Busters, and they end up finding Stripy Stocks girl. Stripy Socks is slightly challenged, almost as if she’s in her own little world, she joins the Little Busters baseball team. I don’t think it’s a success when I only laughed once, despite Stripy Stocks having amazing skills in completely the wrong areas…
Well, it’s an interesting start to a new arc. At least this girl is slightly more interesting than Konomari, but I don’t know if I can stand to watch an entire arc based around Stripy Socks. It’s clear that this arc will focus around Riki’s morals and the way people judge others, i’m starting to think that the show might actually be redeemable (Seriously, who decided to start with Konomari’s arc? It looks like it’s the weakest of the arcs.)
Next week, however, seems to be Kud, the girl who’s also got a really bad voice actor…except instead of being filled with hellium, this one’s got the subtlety of a bag of hammers.
