HaruKana Receive #08 — Friendship, Yay!

August 24th, 2018


How about practicing fundamentals, positioning, and technique instead?


I think the best part of this episode is how it kept trying to bring up that the twins weren't spontaneously spawned from the ether, but wasn't going to take the bold step of admitting that males exist anywhere in the universe. A close second would be how apparently the twins were double Ds even as like twelve year olds, which is a little worrisome in its own way. And yes, that's reaching, because even for this show, this episode was particularly vapid nonsense, and I would say that's a genuine feat, but this is anime, so it's more par for the course.

Anyway, they introduce the mom as their new coach, but then she's all but gone by eight minutes in, having imparted nothing more than "Friendship, yay!" after having beat up on them for a little bit. They don't seem very clear on what coaching is supposed to entail. The next third had even less content. They wandered around yelling "Friendship, yay!" Finally, they learned that those other doofs are catching a plane off to somewhere else, so they all had to rush off to show up in person to go "Friendship, yay!" Can we give it a rest at any point? I realize it's the primary whatever-you-want-to-call-it of the show, but my god, have goddamned something happen, or give a reason for it. Stop just yelling "Friendship!" for twenty straight goddamned minutes.
