After Rihoko got screwed badly from the first season, I hope she gets her wish to get a happy ending because let’s face it, it’s sad to see such an innocent girl like her get “Friendzoned” forever.
Continuing from her arc, it seemed that Rihoko still worries about her weight even though she looks perfectly fine. What annoyed me is Junichi teasing her about being fat. Haven’t he learned that telling a girl that she’s fat is rude? Even so, their childhood flashback on measuring themselves was quite hilarious. Believe it or not, Rihoko has beaten Junichi both in height and bust size back then. Not only that, he seemed to enjoy measuring her chest. Even now, she still looks great despite being self-conscious about her weight. From that, I don’t think she should worry about it since it’s in the right areas rather than the undesirable areas such as the belly. Clearly, Junichi loves her assets despite his teasing about her weight on certain occasions.
To make things better, she changes into a rather cute dress and meets two of her older friends that graduated and attending the same college. It’s kind of funny how they didn’t change from the last time we saw them and still wonder about Rihoko’s progress with Junichi. What made me laugh is Rihoko’s handling of the live eel that Manaka and Ruriko gave. It’s mostly because she can’t handle it, thus it slipped back into the bucket. It was funny, but looked so innocent.
Overall, things are only looking up for Rihoko. I hope Junichi will recognize her crush by confessing to her since she such a sweet and innocent girl who deserves better. Especially now since another boy wants to take her away. Aside from that, Junichi getting heat fatigue from eating only watermelon seemed kind of silly, even though I don’t recommend having that diet. Maybe he should cut back on reading questionable magazines all night long so he can get well.
But yes, I may as well play “Relations” on loop considering the NTR thing with Makabe… Then again, he will hear the blunt of “The person I like is Junichi” from her next time and probably things might become violent to the point where Junichi must save her from this molester. ¶
