We kick things off with a burning school building. I don’t care so much that it’s burning, because would you just look at the size of that thing? And it’s the old school building, too.
— Anyway, this is the next witch to kiss and all that jazz. I’ve kind of forgotten why Ryu and his friends are looking for all of these witches. I’m sure it was explained at the end of some previous episode, but it just goes to show you that the story doesn’t really stick around all that much.
— So what’s her deal? Maria’s been avoiding school, because she saw a vision in which a school building was on fire. Not only that, Ryu was there, too. And the worst part is that they end up becoming social pariahs by the rest of the students. She’s been avoiding school, because she hopes this event never comes to fruition.
— Whenever someone in a story can see into the future, they always see some big, major event happening. No one ever sees like… having terrible shits because you just had to eat that two-day old take-out Chinese food. But that’s neither here nor there…
— After some panty-flashing hijinks that I won’t get into, Ryu returns to his friends to figure out how they’re going to prevent the fire from occurring. Urara astutely notices that there should be a third person involved.
And it is this guy.
— Kentaro’s deal is that he’s in love with Urara… simply because she’s aloof with everyone, so she doesn’t make a big deal out of him being a returnee. What the hell is a returnee? I would’ve guessed someone who came back from being abroad, but…
— Anyway, he basically wants to confess his feelings to Urara. Finally, the more crucial part:
He likes to fry tempura when he’s either happy or sad. Welp, there you go… the gist is that he’ll fall into a depression when Urara obviously rejects him, and as a result, he will accidentally burn down the school building…? I can’t imagine falling into a depression just because someone girl I barely knows rejects me.
— So at first, Ryu hopes to prevent the guy from burning down the school by switching bodies with him. It turns out, however, that Kentaro is ridiculously strong. Also, you get the feeling that Toranosuke is a little too excited to see the two guys kiss.
— Finally, they decide to have Ryu swap bodies with Urara, and keep Kentaro occupied that way. Ryu never stays in character when he’s in Urara’s body, but no one ever seems to notice.
— The idea is to delay the confession, but Ryu somehow wanders into a romantic spot. Kentaro is just about to confess when Urara runs in with Ryu’s body and kisses Ryu.
Well, that’s going to guarantee depression, alright:
— Ryu ends up breaking down the door and kissing Kentaro. Somehow, Kentaro doesn’t have the strength to fight him off this time. Or you could’ve just kept trying to break down the door, and the guy probably would’ve been too busy holding it shut to cook anything. Or you could steal all the cooking equipment and ingredients from the room and prevent him from making his tempura. But this is a silly comedy, so whatever.
— In the end, nothing goes down in flames, but Ryu can’t help but wondered why Urara would willingly send the guy into a depression. It turns out if the building was going to go up in flames anyway, Urara would rather take the blame than let Ryu go down… this is where I’m supposed to awwww because those two are obviously going to become an item before the series is over, but… meh. At least this isn’t a stock harem anime, I suppose.
— Why does she look so beat-up? What has she been doing?
— Oh hey, it’s our next witch…
— Yeah, it’s not usually a show I would blog about. There’s nothing much here to unpack or interpret. But I just don’t have much to watch during the weekdays, so…
— We’ll see what the summer season brings.
