Either it was meant to be dead obvious or I’m that good at detecting reverse traps, my bets are on the former. The moment Mister X revealed
his her face it was a given that Mister X should be Miss X instead, the not so manly voice (Koshimizu Ami) gave it away as well.
Of course, people in anime tend to be dumb, or perhaps they can’t quite differentiate genders apart until they actually get to see the other party naked. I would be worried if that wasn’t enough though. With that I declare the case of the mysterious reverse trap X closed, or maybe not. Somehow I have a feeling that Miss X (I didn’t really remember the other alias) has a bigger role to play though. Could she be the little sister? I wouldn’t rule out that troll possibility.
With the plot slowly developing, or the lack thereof that, Shougo finds himself invited by Konoe to a ball. Guess what, having money and status does help – ground breaking discovery right here. Naturally by that invitation, all the other potential marriage candidates are here as well (wait what?), with each of them getting their fair share of the screen time, with Miyabi being the Cinderella of the night here. Could she be the little sister? I believe we are being tricked into believing that she is, therefore no.
In contrast to that, student council president Mana and cafe owner Mei seemed to have gotten the short end of the stick. Lastly let us not forget that the teacher, who mysteriously seems to be hanging around all the time, has the potential to be the little sister. Could either one of them be the little sister? Wait, do I look like I have any idea to you? Ok, after saying that things are starting to sound real ridiculous, although it isn’t as ridiculous as the Shougo “causing” one heroine after the other to talk to themselves about their breasts in the bath. Wait, how does he do it?
Joking tone aside, I really have no idea where or what direction NakaImo is headed in, hence I opted to blog this over KoiChoco, which is slightly more predictable. Sadly, this episode felt way too average, with plot development being nearly nonexistent. Animation is starting to look sloppy as well but in its defense this is to be expected given the nature of the series and that it isn’t a top-notch studio that is working on NakaImo. Based on episode 1 and 2, I’m going to assume that most subsequent episodes are going to be like this – not having much of a focus and leaving only a few “real” episodes where things actually start to get serious. I still enjoy watching NakaImo at this point, but to be blunt NakaImo feels like it is going to be one of those average series where I will faithfully watch each week, but without the anticipation. I will continue coverage of this series, just don’t expect anything earth-shattering given how things are progressing so far, unless something unexpected happens.
- Literally a daylight robbery?
- THIS IS GOING TO HURT!
- When shower scenes happen, someone being seen naked is bound to happen. Tested and proven.
- Dear Shougo, where are you looking?
- I really don’t understand how the dress undressed itself (lame pun), but seriously, I don’t.
