Sekai-Ichi S2 02: Ritsu is a damn tease.
Seriously, what the hell does Masamune have to do to make you happy, you stubborn fool? Catch a leprechaun and blow gold coins up your arse?
But before we get to that, let’s start from the very beginning. It’s a very good place to start.
The second episode in a row where Mino-san isn’t being his usual bubbly, effervescent, devious self.
It’s as if they actually want to unleash the beast within.
OH SHIT IT’S SHOUTA WITH A BOX CUTTER RUN BITCHES RUNNN
No, Shouta did not actually snap and start stabbing people. I did have to pause the episode because Shouta with a box cutter is a terrifying but hilarious mental image.
Even great men have bad days at the office.
Especially when they’re working with people like Ritsu.
It would be an “Et tu, Ritsu?” moment, except that it would be more of a “Tu solus, Ritsu?”, since it’s only Ritsu who’s the incompetent one; although the translation may not be correct, since I merely ripped it off a Latin translation forum, and I’ve spent way too much time trying to make a Julius Caesar joke that’s not really all that funny anyway. Oh, Clow.
Never trust an episode preview. I was so prepared for some satisfying break-up, dramatic confrontation, and traumatic sexual resolution.
Whoops. May have gotten my adjectives mixed up there (or maybe not).
Although I don’t like how Yokozawa’s characterization is veering towards the “clingy jealous ex” stereotype.
Not only because Yokozawa is too kakkoi (weaboo word usage, lolwut) to be a clingy jealous ex, but also because from there it’s only one small step to “clingy jealous ex who’s also an axe-crazy psychopath”.
Who am I trying to kid? In my moments of weakness, that’s what I actually desire. A Sekai-Ichi Nice Boat Ending – The World’s Greatest First Psychopathy.
I don’t really know why I keep typing in all caps when Shouta’s involved.
But you have to agree that it fits. Shouta is totally an all caps wild raving party animal.
Masamune is a player, no matter what he says.
You may have devoted yourself to Ritsu, but you were born to be a predator. Cast off those foolish illusions, mighty beast! There are savannahs of cute young men ripe for the taking.
You don’t fool me, Masamune. You know very well that the snow is going to be a perfect excuse for your car breaking down along some deserted country road, and Ritsu will be unable to get away.
Just the two of you, huddling in the car, trapped in a snowstorm, the visible exhalations of each others’ breath, holding each other tighter as each is relieved by the warm body of the other…
What is this. My fantasy has been transposed into an awkward conversation scene.
Ahem. Nice going Masamune, you restrained yourself. Just like I knew you would! Thou art truly a pinnacle of virtue and moral uprightness.
Works every time.
It’s not like I didn’t want this to happen, but after taking that screencap and bringing under closer scrutiny…
What is that. Is that like a double eyelid? Or a pupil-less eye? Why does Masamune look like his neck has vanished Oh Clow I cannot unsee.
Yeah, mood whiplash.
;___; so true.
What’s this? Is Ritsu finally making a move on Masamune?
Aww, he chickened out. It’s not like he could out-Seme Masamune anyway.
“… my head and body overflowed with him.”
Damn Ritsu, your thoughts aren’t exactly PG-13, are they?
Time for Masamune to practice all those hideously uncomfortable sex positions he’s been thinking about all day.
“This is quite an unsexy present.”
I would have been far more disturbed if Masamune had found it arousing. Digestive medicine? There are some things that not even Masamune can make sexy.
But yes we’re back at the opening screencap once again. I can’t believe that Ritsu still can’t admit it to either Masamune or himself that he loves him.
Ritsu constantly pines for Masamune and is jealous of Yokozawa. Masamune’s already confirmed that he’s not interest in Yokozawa. They’ve had sex. They’ve kissed like hundreds of times (one Japanese kiss is like 50 American kisses by way of cultural significance). What more does Ritsu want?
Obviously, Ritsu is doing this to annoy Masamune. Frustrating both himself and Masamune. Well done, you failure of a troll.
Grade A, Masamune. I need to start doing that to my friends. Or to complete strangers.
Interviewer: “Hey <insert JohnnyYandere’s real name here>, here’s a pen to fill in your particulars.
<insert JohnnyYandere’s real name here>: I feel so loved.
That’s what you get for being a self-oppressive tsuntsun, Ritsu. You get the cooler, attached cats ignoring you.
At least, I think Mino-san is attached. Although if he isn’t, I’m sure a monster like him is having insane wild sex flings with random strangers every night. Because that’s how Mino-san rolls.
Oh great it’s these three again. I am positively dripping with excitement.
