Adachi would be proud.
Definitely a few steps down from the first episode in a lot of ways. Production, energy, direction, etc. It was the worst towards the end when she made him strip to model for him, was crawling all over him, mounting him, groping him, etc, and… that was just it. There’s no punchline or anything at the end of it. Not even the obvious "this is for some boy on boy action." Nothing. The entire joke was apparently "She’s sitting on his crotch, asking him about sex, and that distresses him." Hi-goddamned-larious.
Much of the rest was similarly going for the lowest hanging fruit possible. See, she said he was her "first man" and the obligatory childhood friend misunderstood that. This too is a hilarious joke that should go on through the entire episode. The whole cabbage thing between Jin and Misaki was just weird and that also seemed to be the extent of the joke there. Come on, JC Staff. This is your bread and butter. The one thing you can consistently at least be decent at. Pick it up.
