While Kosaki is not my favorite girl, this episode definitely got me to appreciate her character a lot more.
Note: This is the last week for Anime Weekly Impressions, at least for spring. Next week, I will be sharing my final impressions for each show separately.
Nisekoi 2 – Episode 11
Some people thought that they will do the memory loss arc next, but it seems that Kosaki is the main focus in this episode. While she isn’t exactly my favorite girl since she is indecisive, it’s easy to feel sorry for her. Apparently, she got screwed over by the scale and thinking that she is overweight when in reality, she is not.
While it’s easy to feel sorry for her since she has to go through a day without eating and even resisting the urge to eat her favorite food that Raku made because of a misunderstanding, the second half is what made me warm up to her a bit more. It seems that she has feelings for him since middle school, which is why she decided to study and take the exam so that she can go to the same high school as Raku. While I felt sorry for her when she failed the test that she worked so hard for, I’m happy that she made it with some miracle.
While Haru and Marika are my favorites, I have to admit that Kosaki was cute in this episode. Someday, she will get over her insecurities and confess for real.
Danmachi – Episode 11
Somehow, I was disappointed with the expedition since nothing interesting happened. What surprised me is that Lyu, who is one of the maids that work at the pub, happened to defeat all those monsters without any problem. This makes me wonder why she decided to give up being an adventurer. She will probably reveal the reason why next time.
Aside from that, Bell becoming timid when he is around cute girls is getting really annoying. Everyone knows that he is a chick magnet, but he still gets flustered, even around Aizu, who is the girl that he looks up to. Given that the plot armor helped him get this far, I’m not surprised. Hopefully, he will improve, although a part of me doubts that.
From the look of the next episode, it looks like it will be a lighthearted one. Also, I wonder if Welf will start making magical weapons again since he was given a magical weapon from Hephaestus. We’ll see.
