Although they somewhat up the fanservice, it’s away from the usual Haruka-Yuuto development and Shiina was given some screen time… Too bad it was too late since Shiina have no way in hell that she will win over Yuuto’s heart although some people perfer her to be the girl that Yuuto should be as a couple instead of Haruka…
Shiina after having her fortune that there will be development in her love life, she is dressed up in her Kimono and sees Yuuto who went shopping for Ruko and Yukari. Some guy while they were walking on the bridge bumps into Shiina and her hairclip drops into the river. Yuuto foolishly goes into the river and finally finds it and the children urges Shiina to kiss her which made Yuuto annoyed. Afterwards, Yuuto left and at home, Shiina makes dinner but accidentally injures her right foot’s toes and can’t move well. Then, Mai, Ryouko and also Yuuto arrived at her place and knowing that Shiina’s injury wasn’t serious, Ryouko barges into Shiina’s room and looked into her draws with underwear which causes Shiina to become embarrassed. Afterwards, they played cards and Yuuto lost. He had to massage all the girls and finally Shiina which causes him to become uncomfortable… and Ryouko insists for him to thighs, but she tell him to stop when he almost did it. Afterwards, they left and Shiina was trying to reach the pots, but it fell on her and Yuuto ran back to her place to see if she is alright. He cooks her dinner and hang out. While Yuuto was sleeping, Shiina decides to kiss him and soon after, he woke up.
Next day, while Yuuto and Haruka was walking with each other, Shiina came and using her bag, hits Haruka in the butt can causing Haruka’s bag to fell on the ground and Shiina helps her pick her stuff and put it in the bag. Yuuto came over to Haruka wondering what happened to her with Shiina.
Away from the usual Haruka-Yuuto stuff and Shiina is thrown into the spotlight… The episode itself was okay, but was pretty weak considering there is no way in hell Shiina could win Yuuto’s heart since he seems to be in love in Haruka, but they somehow won’t kiss on the lips. Some may think that Shiina would make a better girlfriend for Yuuto, but the problem is that Yuuto doesn’t seem to be interested in her as a girlfriend and just as a friend. Some love triangle, eh?
The fanservice is turned up a little, but not too high that it’s distracting. Also, it seem that the characters in this episode seems to went out of character, especially with Shiina and her friend, Ryouko… Shiina seems to have some jealously that she can’t win over Yuuto since Haruka seems to be of a higher class even though Haruka puts Yuuto even higher than Haruka…
Not a bad episode, but it could be alot better…
