Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 6

Review:

I’m going to start this episode review of Kiss Him, Not Me by pointing out that Igarashi should just go out with Nishina and that would at least cut out some of the extras from this show. Other than that, this week the show confronts head on how irrational some people can get with their views about anime to the point where we nearly lost a friendship for good (I’d shed a tear but I was rolling my eyes a little too much for that).

Also, Nanashima learns the hard way that there is no point asking logical questions of a die-hard fan. All round though, this episode was much the same as all the others so if you’ve been enjoying it so far there was nothing really different this week except that the two girls took centre stage with their shipping war.

Kiss Him, Not Me is available on Crunchyroll.

Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 5

Review:

Kiss Him, Not Me had a Valentine episode. How sweet. Well, at least the objective wasn’t to make chocolate for the boys and it was to make it for a competition. That part of the episode was actually quite reasonable and I kind of liked Shima by the end of that section when she called the boys out on just liked Kae for her looks. Alas, we then get to the second part of the episode where, having consumed all the left over chocolate, Kae returns to her ‘fat’ self and ‘fat’ voice. While her gaining weight isn’t a particular drama the reaction of most of the guys is (thank goodness for the older one – still can’t remember his name because other than the fact that he’s actually nice I haven’t really remembered anything about him). But, you already know my thoughts on the problems with the premise of this show so moving on. Various weight loss plans ensue for the remainder of the episode. About the only good part of this was Igarashi finally realises he actually just likes Kae and it isn’t all about her looks. What a revelation for the boy. I did enjoy the point system the idiot pair of boys came up with as an incentive because it was obvious where that was going to go right from the start and I wonder why they didn’t think it through all the way.

Anyway, this is still much the same as always so if you’ve been enjoying it you’ll enjoy it or otherwise there are probably better things to pick up this season.
