I Don’t Like My Brother At All! #04 — True Love’s Kiss

January 29th, 2011


Where would this show be without Hirono and Haruka?


A fairly weak first half that was not at all helped by the janky art. It’s hard to enjoy girls in bikinis when most of them look like Gumby and at least one has a concave stomach. Hirono and Haruka were at least easier on the eyes. They really are the lynchpin for a lot of the humor in this show. Their expressions in the background really help sell the jokes without interrupting the show to hold up a big flashing "LAUGH HERE" sign. I’m a little surprised that they went with all bikinis too. Shows usually feel an unnatural need to have everybody dressed in a completely different style; a one-piece, some sarongs, one character in string, etc. The closest this came was just Shizuru in her token school bathing suit and stockings. I don’t think that even counts.

Anyway, the episode was fairly average at best until Shuu’s oxygen deprivation delusions took over. Of course, that did involve delusions of having Shizuru seduced by an octopus and/or her shaving his junk ending in bloodshed. There is really no way that Shuu is going to have a normal sex life if the second fantasy his mind goes to involves somebody slicing his tacklebox with a razor, let alone watching her enjoy herself (and how!) with an octopus. I am glad that they decided to toss in the AGE at the end to save his life. I was expecting a male lifeguard, but throwing them into the mix for Shuu’s affections (imagined or otherwise) is a move that does have potential. Hopefully it wasn’t just a throwaway joke.

    Remember when Hirono hitted Nao on the first episode? We need more of that. “That” being more females getting hit.
