Ano Natsu de Matteru episode 07
Finally! I hauled this episode in the moment I laid eyes on it. It was hell waiting for it though, as there were only two seeders and roughly 300 leechers. Still, the episode was well worth the wait. Ano Natsu de Matteru is supposed to be a romantic anime, but how can there be any romance If the characters keep getting interrupted in the middle of a good scene? Strange…
Moving on… The episode picks up where we left off; with Ichika interrupting Kaito’s little moment with his childhood friend, and with Tetsurou running for dear life, hoping he won’t get caught by that pushy girl. Seriously, what’s wrong with her? Being aggressive is one thing, but she is taking it to a whole new level. Isn’t that one of the ways for a person to become a rapist? The fact that they were shooting a movie was just an excuse for them to fool around, or at least try to. Things didn’t really seem to pick up for anyone, as they all just kept getting interrupted as soon as anything happened.
Okay, that wasn’t always the case. Take Tetsurou and Mio; both of them were running away from Chiharu, the world’s most aggressive girl. She followed him everywhere, even when Mio ended up hiding him. However, she became enraged and started badmouthing Mio, saying she was a pervert that gets thrills from not wearing any underwear in public. That’s when Mio told the truth; the fact that she’s a nudist due to the way she was raised. Both her parents are nudists, so being naked at home has become a way of life for her. Also, she has a low blood pressure, resulting in her forgetting to put on underwear from time to time. She never told anyone anything because she was afraid of what people might think of her.
This episode felt like a speed-up of like three episodes. There was so much progress, absolutely unbelievable. Mio-chan finally gathered the courage to confess to Tetsurou, Ichika finally acknowledged her feelings for Kaito and Kanna is starting to make a little bit of progress on being honest with her feelings as well. Still, the relationship between Kaito and Ichika was progressing extraordinarily well, until Kanna interrupted their first kiss. Damn you Kanna, DAMN YOU! The moment was perfect, the night was perfect and the environment was perfect. That must’ve hurt!
You know, it’s strange… I just saw everything that I wanted to see; a relationship between Ichika, Kaito, Mio and Tetsurou. But why do I want to see even more? Why is it that I want to watch next week’s episode right now? I’ll tell you why; Ano Natsu de Matteru is absolutely great! It’s fun to watch, it’s always amusing, the story is very unpredictable and you really get up in the romance. I’d rather see a second season of Ano Natsu de Matteru with one or two episodes, than a second Phi Brain season with twenty-four episodes. I know a lot of people that would agree with me!
