Ichiya is already on a roll to win over all the girls.
It seems that Ichiya’s life has changed a lot since he got the camera and joined the Photography Club. Now, he is interacting with every girl he sees. Haruka is a good example of this since she wants to be with him more often. Heck, she even asked him to take pictures of her wearing a swimsuit. He simply got the positions down, which looked like a beautiful piece of art. At the same time, I have a bad feeling that these photos will eventually leak to the Photography Club, which is filled of perverts that is doing it wrong. He shouldn’t have mingled with that club, but what can you do.
On the other hand, I liked how the tide turned on Muroto. She was just too strict in enforcing the rules. Just from these two episodes, she already scolded him three times. This is probably why I felt that the photo shoot where he took pictures of her climbing a wall was already sweet justice. From this, I already have a good feeling that she will grow closer to him so that her reputation won’t get soiled. From the look from the preview, that is already an indication that he will tame her.
Overall, I still have some mixed feelings on how the story will go. It seems like the producers want to cover all the girls in one shot, meaning that only one girl can win compared to Amagami which focused on each girl in a few episodes. I could be wrong as they can pull the good old harem ending. Aside from that, Misumi’s problem felt like “I want to be like Haruka because she is popular” instead of being herself, which seems rather clichéd. Even so, it will be interesting how he will resolve that. ¶
