Not a hot start for our, ahem, “hero.” Two years after being stood up on Christmas Eve, Junichi is still moping about it. Oh yeah, when I said “moping,” I actually meant “floating naked in a fetal position amidst the lonely stars of frigid space.” Sheesh.
What’s our jilted lover to do then? Well, being the helpful yet personality-less harem lead that he is, he gets to be called nice by Morishima-senpai no less than three times throughout the show. Of course, this leaves him awe-struck.
Lots of guys fall into similar traps: “OMG, she likes The Shins. I like The Shins! We’re totally soul mates.” For Junichi, he thinks helping a few girls out and having idle banter means he’s totally in love. This is why it was so delicious when he got rejected at the end the first episode.
Guys like him deserve to fall into a fetal position every night wondering why the girl said no. Unfortunately, he has only up to go from here as it isn’t likely that this show will have the guts to do otherwise.
Bits & Pieces
– Oops, he’s not totally personality-less. My bad. He fantasizes about his sister taking a bath with his senpai. That makes him a creep at least.
– Junichi and his best bud ogle photoshoots of hot babes. Boys will be boys! On the other hand, what kind of photobooks do you think Morishima looks at? Cute doggies~!
What else would girls look at? Teenage girls are so innocent and chaste and would never have any urges whatso-
