Sekai-Ichi S2 04: Yuu has a weird idea of what romance is.
Why yes, Yuu is happy to see you, and he does have a gun in his pocket.
(He doesn’t. But I wouldn’t be surprised if he did. Yuu be mad loco.)
Chiaki is the most insecure, insensitive person I’ve ever seen in anime. He’s gotten the confession, the sex, even the visit to the family (OVA special which I will review at some point in the distant future) and he still doubts Yoshiyuki.
Although he is somewhat justified in his suspicions, because Yoshiyuki’s ex-girlfriend is one hot lady.
Also the emotionally-repressed Japanese have disproportionate interpretations of social interactive gestures. I hear that the Japanese view of kissing a girl in public is equivalent to the Western view of having sex with her and her sister.
For all I know, stroking a guy’s hair is code for “Thanks for that incredible 6-hour sex romp involving my darkest sexual fantasies and the wombat plushie, how on earth did you know about that?”
Chronologically, this screencap came before the Yoshiyuki-Ex-girlfriend encounter.
But it’s so much more dramatic this way, yes? Not that Chiaki with a knife is a particularly terrifying thing.
I myself was hearing this in my head when I was thinking of the most appropriate background music for a Chiaki revenge plotting scene.
Well it’s not the blank eyeball of a complete mindrape.
Chiaki, that’ll teach you to go over to Yuu’s to spite Yoshiyuki.
Yuu, you really need to take some classes in interpreting human behaviour. Your love interest coming over to spite his love interest is not code for “Kiss me, take me, I want to feel your fingers on my naughty place and it would be best if we were naked when my unfaithful love interest finally appears.”
Because Bionic ARRRMMMMM is the new Falcon PAAAWNCH.
Mad props to Chiaki. I’d never have expected him to do anything that physical. Even in sex, I imagine Chiaki just lies there with his muscles exhausted from 5 minutes of foreplay while Yoshiyuki sits on the side of the bed and facepalms.
Not that Yoshiyuki’s actions aren’t justified, but these are going to result in some unfortunate consequences.
1. Yuu realizes he’s lost and commits suicide.
2. Yuu becomes an ax-crazy stalker.
3. Yuu becomes an ax-crazy stalker, kills Yoshiyuki and cuts his stomach open while muttering “Usotsuki”, then decapitates Chiaki and cradles his head on a yacht sailing off into the sunset.
So I watched School Days during class. Economics had never been this interesting.
Some serious mood whiplash this episode. I mean, I understand the whole drama escalation thing, but I watch Sekai-Ichi to indulge my inner fangirl – with the sparkles and the self-assured, debonair gentlemen and the torrid sex with wine on a rainy night – not for drama and implications that I would rather not think about.
How am I supposed to be feeling great about an episode that was pretty much about Yuu getting physically assaulted and losing his love for life? =____=”
Yokozawa, Isaka, and Ritsu hugging Masamune? This could go so right… or so wrong.
Besides, it’s only episode 5. There’s no way Ritsu could suddenly be this decisive.
SORRY FOR THE INCREDIBLY LATE POST.
I’ve just finished P3P with total playtime of 93 hours and 23 minutes. Some of you would be going, “Hurrah! Back to early, regularly scheduled Sekai-Ichi reviews!”, while the more world-weary, experienced souls will be going, “Terrific. Another month of late reviews as that moron starts his New Game+”
…and you’d be right.
I PROMISE TO PUBLISH THE NEXT EPISODE REVIEW BY THIS MONDAY, KAY? T___T
