Princess Lover! #06 — Dirty Ping Pong

August 9th, 2009

 

I mean that they cheat, you perverts.

Sorry, my presence is mandatory at a party tonight for my newly engaged sister. If I don’t get these done now, I may not get them done until tomorrow. You’ll survive the LQ.

Impressions:

Well, apparently Go Hands still has some budget left, as they decided to blow the first minute on the best animated sequence since the first episode about magical girl Maria fighting some monster. The entire introduction sequence (which was pretty lengthy) was actually pretty silly and really out of the norm for this show. Both Teppei and Snot were breaking the fourth wall constantly. The shot of Seika using a metro card like some kind of genius idol while Charlotte and Sylvia hopped around like chimps around the monolith was also worth a chuckle.

Teppei’s ‘party’ ended up being a retreat to the hot springs, and this show is nowhere near creative enough to do anything overly creative with that. The guys all wanted to peep on the girls, the maid was traumatized by not getting to share a room with her master, the small chested girl was traumatized by the giant breasts in the bath, and the roaming giant white blobs were EVERYWHERE. It wasn’t even a half-assed attempt to pretend it was fog. They were just giant floating white… things. Not that the cheesecake shots of these grotesquely proportioned women would be all that more attractive without the rampant censorship.

All in all, it wasn’t really that bad of an episode, and it was significantly more enjoyable than the last couple episodes… but it was still completely different in tone, style, and delivery than the last five episodes. Even Sylvia wasn’t opposed to flaunting her sexual appeal to counter-cheat Teppei at ping pong. It was full of parodies, most notably the magical girl sequence and a short Kaiji sequence later. The "Teppei is so awesome" scene between the girls at the end was excessively corny, but I’ll forgive it this time. That was really the only thing of note to happen this episode anyway, aside from maybe wrapping up this whole Teppei/party arc finally.

Well, this has gone on far longer than it needed to. It was entertaining, so I’m pleased… but it’s also nothing like the last five episodes, so I’m kind of also annoyed at the potential wasted, or alternatively, a likely imminent return to the angsty drama with the obligatory rival parachuting in next episode… literally.

Preview:

The rival appears.

    who’s the new Blondy for next episode, someone else’s fiance, or supposed transfer student.

    ”my presence is mandatory at a party tonight for my newly engaged sister”

    Congratulations.

  • Shinji103 says:

    Lol, I find the floating giant white censorship blobs hilarious just for the fact of blatant censorship. :D

  • jeffng9 says:

    the censorship really spoils it!

  • gummi says:

    I have a very strong feeling that this “rival” that is shown in the preview, is Charlotte fiance or just a friend, or someone related too her but with a weird complex.

  • Yue says:

    Hehe, Bravo! Here comes an exceptionally grand entrance to a rival character who would later be forgotten (cannon fodder) much less have a competitive impact on the harem plot. ^_^

  • jeffng9 says:

    i won’t be surprise if i see next week is about Sylvi rather than charlotte. haven’t watch the raw yet but i think its about time they spice up a little on Sylvi

  • kaze62 says:

    we can’t say the hand which the man takes is the one of charlotte because (Those who one seen the episode and the preview) the scene changes and we meet ourselves the evening……
    While we were in broad daylight at the time of the kiss
    it’s a detail which changes everything == > without doubt a trap for the spectator
    ((It is necessary to look at the bottom to realize the difference between the Two moments))
    this is probably a perverse guile for deceived the specateur (fuck ^^”
    wait and see

    Why even bother having an episode like this if your going to censor it. Why not just have 24 minutes of white clouds. Like aroduc said, this episode seemed out of place. There was no plot progression and or even fan service since it was censored.

    Wouldn’t it be cool if the new guy actually wins one of the girls. Can’t remember a single time that’s happened. My money is on Charlotte getting all the attention again. Sylvia is already engaged and there hasn’t been any mention of another love interest. Charlotte gave enough clues last episode that she isn’t looking forward to the future.

    From now on, these onsen atmoshperic suit phenomenon shall be called “Mobile Fog”. ^_^
