Interesting butt shot. Under the cut is screenshot heavy.
Really, despite the simple and obvious premise, this still managed to be a very enjoyable episode for the most part. I had a really good laugh over the girls worrying about being swimsuits. From my perspective as a girl, they were right on. There’s a special science to swimsuits. That, and despite must swimsuit/hot tub episodes, this was actually funny.
Still some things bugged me. Himeji can’t cook. We get it. It’s not funny anymore. Also, I think Shimizu has to one of the most irritating characters I’ve even encountered. Maybe it’s just her voice actor, but it doesn’t matter what she says, I just want to strangle her. Despite my dislike of that character, the large cast was managed well for this episode.
I’m very impressed with the characterization of Hazuki, Shimada’s sister. From my experience with little kids, this vicious and teasing streak she has is typical.
Also, this show cements for me that Shimada is my favorite and hottest girl of the bunch. I’m also getting a huge crush on Hideyoshi. I’m just like the rest of the world, I suppose.
From here, enjoy the screenshots of each of the girls hot springs summoned beings, with the exception of Shimizu. I thought they were just cute. No, I have no idea how they summoned them without a teacher’s permission, maybe Yoshii’s barrier he put up caught them in it, but frankly, I’m not going to think about too hard. The show is not one that runs on plot or logic.
