Oh, hey, we got another one.
CVoyage: Well, it’s official, dude.
EvilBob: What is?
CVoyage: This is definitely a Shonen. We have our first rival!
EvilBob: Yes, a full grown adult has declared a teenager his rival… a full season and a half into the show.
CVoyage: Semantics. Funny how he’s just as insane as Hotaru, but about, of all things, convenience stores.
EvilBob: Kokonotsu attracts some straaange characters. But I do hope Hotaru comes back soon. That way we can see how these two would play off of one another.
CVoyage: Can we just talk about how pompous this dude is? Seriously? Not thinking they’d even heard of an automatic door before? C’mon, dude.
EvilBob: To be fair… look at their faces when they walk up to said automatic door.
EvilBob: Come to think of it, the way they act, you’d think they’d never seen a convenience store before.
CVoyage: Well, they do live in “The Boonies.”
EvilBob: What is this, Black Clover?
CVoyage: Thank merciful heaven, no.
EvilBob: Well, he did declare war on the Dagashi shop. Claiming that it would be killed off by natural selection like the weakest beings in nature.
CVoyage: …Oh. Great. Now I’m having Mars flashbacks. Thankfully, though… this guy is way more entertaining. He’s just so nutty and fun to watch. He’s like an older, male version of Hotaru. He even has the friggin’ eyes!
EvilBob: I didn’t actually expect him to try to hire Kokonotsu, either. Goes to show that he actually respects the kid.
CVoyage: And once again, Kokonotsu with the honor of a freaking Samurai. I respect this guy more with every passing episode… but…
CVoyage: Beni didn’t exactly bring his A-Material to bargain with. I mean… dirty magazines? Dude. For someone who was just bragging about the need for companies to “embrace the future,” he sure seemed to forget about one major wrench in his plan.
CVoyage: The dude offered to let Kokonotsu buy those magazines without being noticed, but… if Kokonotsu wanted he could just… you know… go to the internet for that… entirely for free. Just sayin’.
EvilBob: …How did I not think of that until now?
CVoyage: Anyway, this episode was a lot of fun, introducing a really eccentric addition to the cast who’ll hopefully help the series take off in awesome new directions. I don’t even mind Hotaru not being around at all because he actually filled that void, if only a little. This episode was a heaping helping of Junk Food, and I still can’t get enough of this show. Looking forward to the next episode, too, when they introduce that other woman.
EvilBob: I’d say this episode is about as Evil as a Super Villain (10). It’s really awesome that they brought in a character to kinda fill in the void while Hotaru is gone. But I do wanna see what’ll happen when she finally gets back so they can interact. But if you want a show that’s funny for completely different reasons, check out my recaps of Hakyu Hoshin Engi.
CVoyage: …I’m inclined to agree with him, actually. Anyway, if you’d prefer to watch some marvelously over-the-top junk foody goodness, then check out Dagashi Kashi 2. It’s Simulcast on Crunchyroll, Fridays at 10:30pm EST. Something tells me it’s really about to start getting good.
EvilBob: That’s pretty much all we’ve got for you today. Thanks for letting us waste your time, people.
CVoyage: As always, thanks for reading, folks. Remember to keep up the awesome.
EvilBob: And keep it classy.
CVoyage: Take care.
