Love Going Around in Circles
Haruka might be amazing, but Touma is just awesome.
He She felt absolutely no shame in showing off her body even in the presence of a male, unless of course, Touma had completely forgotten than Mako-chan is really a boy.
Kana is actually showing some sensibility!
But I have to say, it’s impossible to imagine Makoto in those manly clothes but it was easy to imagine
her him in a kimono. Let me just say now that there hasn’t been such an epic gender crisis in an anime since Ranma Â½.
Mako-chan trying to remove his underwear in a room full of girls, oh my!
And Yoshino. I’ve gained new found respect for her. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that Yoshino was capable of creating such a catastrophic situation using a single sentence, with a straight face to boot! One has to wonder after watching that whether or not she had said that on purpose just to find out who the kimono belongs to or was it a purely coincidence discovery.
It’s obvious that the guys in Minami-ke never has it easy, but Fujioka probably has it the roughest. Of all people, he had to choose the 100% certified bakayaro, Kana. He should have tried again at night instead of just giving up. But knowing his luck with Kana, he probably wouldn’t be able to get through anyway.
I was soooo disappointed that Haruka and Chiaki-sama decided to drink the special “juice” instead of stripping, especially after they continued to lose and had to drink more. Instead, they got drunk and Haruka turned banchou-mode before she started crying like a little kid while Chiaki-sama…
I’ve been wondering for the longest time about that hair standing up like that. This is probably due to Chiyo-chan’s influence from Azumanga Daioh, but I’ve always been thinking that Chiaki-sama might be able to perform some tricks with her hair. Now, right at the very end of the first series, she finally proved that she can!
All hail Chiaki-sama!
But the best part of this final episode is Kana being on the receiving end of a
rape kiss attempt by Hayami-senpai, which brings us all back to the first episode with the legendary chase scene and awesome camera angles as Kana tried to rape kiss Chiaki-sama. It made me feel as if we’ve just made one big round back to the beginning again.
“Holy crap! They’re all broken!”
It’s too bad Chiaki-sama is unconscious…
Minami-ke has been what I would describe as the best anime of 2007. My only real gripe is that they should have introduced Touma way, wayyy earlier and that its only 13 episodes long.
But it seems that all is not lost. Peeking around in the anime blogosphere had revealed that Minami-ke Okawari isn’t as bad as everyone had initially thought. The art might be weaker than the original, but they’ve brought back the same seiyuu cast so it’s now something that I look forward to watch.
Hopefully, just maybe, by the end of Okawari, a true sequel to this original Minami-ke series will come true.
It’s nice to know that Ninomiya-kun and sensei finally got wise about that damned car and got married.
“Don’t think this is the last you’ll see of me…”
