Mayo Chiki! – Episode 8

This is part 2 of the beach/hot springs episode. Naturally, Kinjiro and Suburu run into each other in the male’s bath, only to be joined by Subaru’s father, who has to be ejected by Subaru (and knocking out his memories of the event with it). Later, the group and Subaru’s “cousin” goes to a festival. We also learn the real reason for the trip was to allow Subaru to visit her mother’s grave. At the end of the night, Subaru confesses to Kinjiro…

Subaru sure loves her creepy sheep...

I had to LOL at the fact that they “clouded” over Subaru’s butt in the onsen but not Kinjiro’s butt. In any case, no one could have possibly predicted that Subaru and Kinjiro would run into each other in the male’s bath. OK, ok, everyone could see it coming from a mile away.

Having said that, this was a much improved episode with some background info about Subaru and some character development for her. Yeah, there was still some silliness but it wasn’t too bad. And Subaru basically confessing to Kinjiro at the end will hopefully make the series a bit more interesting from this point on.
