Look at me blogging two episodes in one day. GO ME! XD Or maybe it is because I am waiting for my power to come back on the game….
No no, it must be because I love Amagami SS and Junichi so much. That must be it!!!
Yeah…so here is episode 21 folks. Spoilers for Tsukasa doing a lot of paper work!!!
Episode Summary: It has been one year since Junichi got dumped by some random girl. I guess at this point we are never going to see who it is. Junichi is still super depressed about it and can’t even bring himself to go to the festival. Masayoshi takes pity on Junichi and takes him back to his place to do…nothing basically. They promise that next year they will have girlfriends to share the special day with. At the festival Tsukasa is seen doing her duties but is thinking to herself “next year”. Fast forward to this year and Rihoko (who still likes Junichi) is asking Junichi if he is coming to the festival this year. He has to ponder this and is reminded of his promise he made to Masayoshi. Home room teacher is all like okay who is going to be our class person for the festival. When no one volunteers Tsukasa steps up. Home room teacher is worried that Tsukasa is already busy with her other duties and asks for someone to help her. Junichi then is like ME! His friends are like X_X why did you do that. His reasoning is if he HAS to be at the festival he can get over what happened to him two years ago. Or something. When Tsukasa learns this fun fact she is super thrilled. I am sure anyway.
Everyone continues to doubt Junichi’s ability to do this festival stuff, including Junichi. He becomes impressed with everything Tsukasa does but really doesn’t seem to do anything to help her. They go after school to the super-secret storage room and promptly get locked in. Tsukasa doesn’t seem too worried as some other committee members are going to come by. They proceed to take inventory of what crap they do have in that room and they work well together. Miya eventually comes and lets them out and no pervert moments happen. On the way home they run into Tsukasa’s sister. She seems friendly enough but Tsukasa gets upset about life and stomps away. The next day Junichi has to do committee stuff on his own and fails miserably. He goes to fetch Tsukasa who is watching people make up their swim lessons. Because she is now a teacher or something. Who knows. Haruka is spying from the corner and Junichi tries to do things on his own. While doing stuff he finds a notebook on the floor and in trying to figure out who it belongs to Junichi reads some boring schedule stuff. Tsukasa and her bathing suit self runs in and thinks Junichi read the whole notebook. She then grabs Junichi by the shirt and threatens him. X_X The end?
The time is here folks! The arc that everyone has apparently been waiting for. The arc that made people be not so angry that Rihoko got shafted. It is time for the arc that has the girl on the game box! Tsukasa wow me with your arc!!!!
Or not. Or not people. This is what you have been waiting for? This is the arc that was going to wow me?
Maybe. Just maybe the wow is with next week. As seen at the end of the episode. But before the end of the episode I had to sit through of 21 minutes and 45 seconds of BORING! Boring people.
Junichi starts off the episode being…a loser. We all know that Junichi got dumped of Christmas Eve. Now 21 episodes into this series I want to know if the girl who dumped him was his girlfriend or just some girl he liked and asked out that day.
Because if it is the later I really, really think Junichi is a loser. If my significant other dumped me on Christmas Eve I would be pretty bitter about it 2 years later. But if I asked someone out because I liked them and it was a couple night and they didn’t show up….I would be pissed but would move on. I WOULD MOVE ON!!!!!
So the fact that one year after the fact Junichi missed the festival makes me roll my eyes. I have a new found respect for his friend (well despite the porn magazines) for putting up with that. He missed his first festival to cheer up his friend and that was really nice of him. I probably would have said….yeah I will see you after the fact.
Why am I bringing this up when we have known forever that Junichi is a loser? Because Junichi did not go to the festival last year. Meaning this year would have been the first time he would attend one. So why does this taco head think he can help RUN the festival?! Granted there has to be first years running the festival no matter what since many seniors are too busy enjoying their last year. But still I don’t think Junichi is the kind of person who can just jump on into something without knowing what it is all about.
That and he didn’t even want to attend the festival this year. How can you count on someone who barely wanted to attend? His motives were too iffy to take seriously. If I was Tsukasa I would have a really, really fake smile on my face when he was the only one who volunteered.
Also Teach you need to pick people. Stop letting the one person who volunteers for everyone pick up the slack. That and when the laziest person in your class volunteers to help I would be doing…something. Shame on all of you people for not helping.
Despite being the most boring episode ever I really did like the part where they got locked in the storage room and nothing sexual happened. Pick me off the floor in shock. They were like…oh okay. And they went about their work. Okay Junichi tried to look up her skirt but since this is Junichi we are talking about so let’s be grateful. No knee or toe sex yet. So that was nice.
I am going to go on a wild limb here and say the reason Tsukasa is the way she is (crazy on the inside and fake sweet on the outside) is because of her sister. Without more back story I don’t really know if this is an appropriate reaction. I am just going to guess no though. Probably a younger sister living in the shadows type deal. Eye rolling indeed.
Junichi not being able to hack doing a few basic things is….special. I mean it was dramatic anyway with everyone demanding things like they were (GIVE ME A POWER CORD!!!!!) but the fact that Junichi couldn’t do…anything makes me feel really bad for Tsukasa if this was the only person helping her.
Tsukasa being the fill in swim coach was so dumb I have no words for it. Just a way to make the girls wear swimsuits. Also what is with having to make up gym classes? ICKY!!!
So the end scene was the best part of the episode. Since I thought most of the episode was boring that is not saying much but you know. All Junichi read was how she takes super serious notes. But Tsukasa thought he read her super-secret stuff and she flipped out. I am going to guess she either has rude notes on other people or how she really hates doing all the special tasks she does. Sort of a venting type journal.
In any event Junichi is like OH CRAP. This whole episode was a lie! It lured him into a false sense of security and that is why his face looked so X_X. So this entire episode was boring, showing how nice and lovely Tsukasa was only to have it explode in Junichi’s face. KA-BOOM!
So…next week better be interesting. Like I want some major fallout of Tsukasa’s mistake and Junichi trying to convince someone that Tsukasa is really an evil witch. Not that I was ever counting this series to be amazing but the way people talked up the last arc I was expecting something. Bring it on episode 22!!!
