Hina won a family trip to a hot spring? You know what this means… FANSERVICE!
I don’t know how she manages to do it, but at least they receive a proper vacation. From the look of things, not much happens in terms of plot besides some fanservice scenes with girls in swimsuits and Sora’s continued jealousy of Raika’s melons. This means more insecurity from Sora, even after she fakes it and ends up being a disaster after going down the slide.
On the other hand, Raika never fails to impress me. After watching Little Busters, besides her strangeness, she resembles Yuiko Kurugaya’s personality when it comes down to cute girls, but not to obsessive levels. Then again, she gone out her way to have Yuuta untie her clothes and admit that he like big ones in order to ask him if he wanted to go to the Lover’s Cape together as a group. While it’s such a silly thing to do, it was still entertaining to watch.
As a whole, it’s obvious that the directors are trying to get Yuuta and Raika together, thus leaving Sora out in the dust. I doubt that she had any chance given the big age gap. Unlike the Anime, at least the other adaptations gave each girl a chance and of course the video game. Aside from that, this completes my watching of Papa Kikinasai and I don’t know how many times I have my heart explode from all this cuteness. It probably happened 10 times.
