Ryuuou No Oshigoto! – Episode 8 Recap (Is It Evil?)
Ai is right. Yaichi is an idiot. How Evil is Ryuuou No Oshigoto! episode 8?
This episode started with a tournament for all the lady players in the show. One of those players came directly after Yaichi trying to get him to play her if she wins. She was very forceful about it too. I think she made him agree, but they didn’t show us if he did or not. Yaichi’s problems didn’t stop with her either.
You see he has the job of commentating matches in this episode. And for some reason, his partner, is a realy cute girl that is well endowed. Yaichi is sixteen years old, I shouldn’t have to paint a picture of what he was looking at on national television. Unfortanly for him his students saw everything. The stormed the studio and made him look even more perverse that he originally looked.
And no, I don’t feel sorry for him. After that, he and Ginko decided to visit the mater of the crazed female player I mentioned before. Rina has been a professional for twenty years. She is also apparently a mentor figure to Ginko. Almost as soon as they arrive at Rina’s place she challenges Ginko to a match and invites Yaichi to watch.
Ginko soundly losses the match. The loss had nothing to do with lack of skill. It’s implied heavily the loss happened because Yaichi was there to watch. So, confirmation yet again that Ginko has something of a crush on Yaichi.
Rina does send Ginko to run some “errands” which gives her time to discuss her student with Yaichi. This is where things get kind of weird even for this show. Rina refers to her crazed student as a demon that must be sealed away. I haven’t seen supernatural powers in this show yet, so I don’t think it’s a literal thing. Her student has me confused regardless.
After Yaichi and Rina talk, Ginko appears dressed up. Ginko is absolutely embarrassed about the whole ordeal. Yaichi trys to comfort her by telling her she looks good, but that just seemed to make it worse. Rina seems obsessed with making Ginko and Yaichi an item. Yaichi still doesn’t seem to get it either. Overall this episode was about as Evil as a Killer Robot Army (8). I’m glad to see that they used new jokes this time, well for the most part. This show could still be a lot better. If you want something that is more consistent check out our reviews of Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card. It’s always a fun watch. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
Keep It Classy,
