Kotoura-san episode 07

And so the stale romance continues… Why? I cannot believe how many opportunities there are during each and every episode. It’s pretty much a comedy now. The romance is declining very fast, and that’s actually the biggest reason as to why I started watching this in the first place.

I don’t get how that’s even possible. Yoshihisa was practically naked and Hiyori wasn’t far behind. How could nothing have happened after all that?

I thought I saw some promising scenes after Haruka’s mother showed up again. I thought that the comedy was going to be swept away by a flood wave of drama. What happened instead? She made a rotten remark about how those two make each other unhappy and left. I was truly disappointed when that happened.

It was summer vacation, so all of the characters would get lots of opportunities to hook up. Haruka and Hiyori would both get shots at Yoshihisa and Yuriko would probably continue to find a way to get Daichi’s attention. It just seems like nobody’s relationship is working out in Kotoura-san.

I suppose you could say that they saved the best for last. It was Haruka’s birthday and Yoshihisa came prepared. I thought for sure that something would happen, but no, everyone entered and left that room as friends. I could definitely see some progress between Haruka and Yoshihisa, but even that was minimal. This show really needs to pick up the pace in order to keep things interesting, because comedy alone isn’t what made this show great in the first place.
