OreShura episode 05

A Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai spinoff OVA or actually a regular OreShura episode after all? I’m not sure. I didn’t like the comedy at the story, but I’m glad they cut back a bit. Romance should take first place here.

[HorribleSubs] OreShura - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.44_[2013.02.04_22.31.08]The pace in this episode was incredible. It quickly went from a girl fight between Chiwa and Masuzu to a girl fight involving a new character. This sound very exciting. It’s always nice to see a new character at the beginning. It’s too bad that this character turned out to be a blonde, twin-tail loli. I like the idea of having a character that turns Masuzu, a sadistic girl that will do anything to get what she wants, into a harmless kitten in a matter of seconds. Should a twin-tail loli have that much power? I don’t know. It’ll be interesting to see how it’ll work out, and why it is that Masuzu is so scared of her.

[HorribleSubs] OreShura - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.25_[2013.02.04_22.31.47]It’s also a bit sad that Masuzu still isn’t admitting her feelings for Eita. She must know she has them. Everyone knows she has them, especially now that he gave her CPR. That’s one of the few things that pisses me off about her.

I’m ending this post by pointing out how lucky Eita is. He may disagree, but he is. He has half a dozen of girls after him right now. Half a dozen girls that would say yes if he asked them out. That’s just great. Too bad it’s wasted on a guy that refuses to believe in love, but also thinks that it’s better if he stays away from relationships. It just proves that women love b*st*rds that treat them like trash. Why else would Rihanna come crawling back to Chris Brown after he used her face like a punching bag? Sad…

OreShura episode 04

Dear readers, I know I may not always seem like a sane person. My opinion of things fluctuate quite often and I have mood swings like you wouldn’t believe. You could very well compare me to a pregnant woman that was a total b*tch even before she got penetrated. This particular post will not make the image you have of me any better, probably.

[HorribleSubs] OreShura - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.08_[2013.01.28_18.55.34]This episode annoyed the living hell out of me. We all sat and watched as Chiwa was getting humiliated by a bunch of punks. Really? You agree to go on a date with a girl, only to show up hours later with your friends to make fun of her while she just stands there? Where the hell is a drunk driver when you need one to crush those little sh*ts?

I was impressed when Eita rushed over to help Chiwa in her time of need. So what if he couldn’t even handle one of them and ended being beaten up instead? He came up for his friend. That’s what matters here. It was then that Chiwa decided to open up a can of “whoopass” (as the Americans say) in order to help out her pathetic childhood friend.

[HorribleSubs] OreShura - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.11_[2013.01.28_18.56.12]The aggravation didn’t end there. Masuzu actually changed her attitude and turned up the aggressive-meter. She actually stole a kiss and made it seem as though it didn’t bother her, even though it was probably her first as well. How stuck-up can you be? Just admit that you like already! There’s no point pretending when you actually want it to be real. You can’t fool me by saying that she’s going to keep it up for another nine episodes. Absolutely not. She’ll give in soon enough, seeing as she’s aware of her feelings for him (probably).

OreShura episode 03

And so the drama begins… I just hope this won’t turn in to too much of a comedy, because that’s not what I signed up for when I decided to watch all the episodes. There’s too much comedy in OreShura to begin with, more would probably be sufficient for me to drop it.

[HorribleSubs] OreShura - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.52_[2013.01.21_23.42.05]Oh well… At least this episode was still quite dramatic. I love how Masuzu simply toys with both Eita and Chiwa. That girl shows no mercy whatsoever. She does as she pleases without thinking twice about other people’s feelings. Now that’s a real woman! It’s only a matter of time before she realizes that she has a crush on Eita, after which she probably starts treating him a little differently.

I would think that Masuzu is already aware of her feelings for Eita. That’s kind of confusing if that’s true, because she’s helping Chiwa, knowing full well that she likes Eita, too, to confess to the person she likes. Chiwa may have picked some random guy to confess to, just because Eita’s too stupid to understand what’s really going on, but I have a feeling that it’ll change very soon.

[HorribleSubs] OreShura - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.24_[2013.01.21_23.42.38]I thought it over, and I just don’t get why Chiwa did what she did. She clearly didn’t like the guy to whom she confessed. She clearly picked him out randomly. I don’t get why she went through with it. Sure, the obvious reason would be that she did it as a desperate attempt to make Eita jealous, hoping he would rush over and stop Chiwa from confessing to that guy. Plan #1 status: backfired.

The next episode should prove to be quite amusing. Eita must’ve realized by now what’s really got Chiwa going, Chiwa’s more confused than ever and Masuzu seems to enjoy this, even though she probably already knows that she has a thing for Eita, too. Let the drama-coaster begin!

OreShura episode 02

I had to. I had no choice whatsoever in writing about this. OreShura has been on my mind ever since I saw the first episode. I still cannot believe that a female character is blackmailing the protagonist to become her boyfriend. She’s got it all wrong. It’s usually the other way around. That’s probably why I’m so interested.

[HorribleSubs] OreShura - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.42_[2013.01.14_12.59.24]I actually gave it some thought. Would I, just like Eita, do anything to keep my private life a secret? Would I become someone’s pet just to keep a few embarrassing thoughts private knowledge? I don’t know. I would have to give it some serious thought. It doesn’t change the fact that their situation could be compared to a double edged sword. Sure, Masuzu gets what she wants right now, but will that remain the same for the rest of their school life? I’m sure that Eita will get plenty of opportunities to turn things around in his favour. That’s actually what I’m looking forward to. I want to know what he will do when that happens, although he doesn’t seem like the sort of character that would do anything “naughty”.

[HorribleSubs] OreShura - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.40_[2013.01.14_12.59.54]It actually amazed me how much control Masuzu has. Chiwa, Eita’s childhood friend, got a bit jealous of those two, so she set out to find herself someone, too. It’s still strange how this led to them making a club, but I’m fine with that. There’s nothing wrong with a good, amusing harem. The best kind of stories have them, after all.

I’ll just end things by stating the obvious; the story is somewhat predictable. It’s pretty clear that Masuzu will eventually fall for Eita, even though she treats him like a toy right now. That sort of thing usually happens in these types of stories. It can still be entertaining, even though we probably already know what’s going to happen. It’ll be fine, as long as they make sure that the path to that point remains amusing.
