I’m glad it isn’t just me confused by anime characters that can’t admit when they like someone or not. This week, Inomata confused the kids to no end when she claimed not to like Ryuuichi, which in kid logic means she hates him. They then set out on a semi adorable quest to prove he is likeable but that mostly just leads to a touching moment between the brothers before that single most awkward moment most people can imagine in highschool.
It’s a very good thing Ryuuichi is denser than a brick wall sometimes. Outside of this story, we then had one about one of the twins having a cold and needing to stay home and the question of whether or not the other one was lonely. Again, this was played for the most adorable look that it could be played for and for the most part the story works.
Overall, this show continues to be better than expectations and the kids remain cute enough without crossing into overload territory so I’m continuing to enjoy this even if it doesn’t have all that much substance.
