Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou episode 05
Oh come on… This guy, Kazunari, seriously pisses me off every now and then. He constantly stumbles upon a way to steal Ritsu’s heart and finally become an item, only to mess it up by thinking that he managed to screw up again…
This episode was more aggravating than others. He stumbled upon the Holy Grail; the one sure-fire way to get Ritsu’s attention. The most effective method to earn a place in her heart. The idiot figured out (on his own) that it would be a good idea to read the same books as Ritsu. This is great because Ritsu loves books and it gives him a lot of material to talk to her about. Talking about what Ritsu reads in her books is a sure-fire way to strengthen your relationship with her, allowing Kazunari to move up the ladder from stranger to friend to boyfriend. He needs to keep going with this and not screw up for once.
Mayumi has always been a wild card. She speaks her mind without thinking it over properly and acts like a child from time to time. That in itself can be quite problematic for Kazunari. However, Sayaka just pours on another scoop of that. She doesn’t just speak up. She deliberately mocks and teases both Kazunari and Ritsu because she gets jealous easily. Hell, I don’t know if it’s actually jealousy that makes her do those things of if she’s just another one of those attention wh*res, but she does the most damage here. She is one of the biggest reasons why the progress between Ritsu and Kazunari has been so hectic lately. Of course, Kazunari’s tendency to think badly of the situation is still reason number one.
