Ore Monogatari!! episode 17
This episode was refreshing! I like Takeo and Rinko and all, but I could’ve done with a new couple. That’s why I am pretty happy with this episode. It might also be the one thing that was needed to boost their relationship to a new level.
So afro-kun had a crush on one of Rinko’s girlfriends. Well, that was bound to happen. You invite a group of horny teenage boys to go out and play with a group of inexperience teenage girls and what do you get? All sorts of possibilities arise. One of them was the possibility of another couple joining the big picture. Afro-kun, being an idiot, didn’t really do it properly, but he did eventually manage to get the girl he liked. In fact, their relationship is going so fast that they’re already doing better than Takeo and Rinko, which, in my opinion at least, is a bit of a slap in the face.
I believe that this could be the boost that those two needed. Rinko now knows that her friend has already gone further with her boyfriend than she has with Takeo. This should inspire her to do better and perhaps be a little more aggressive. Nothing wrong with stealing a kiss. We’re at the seventeenth episode; I’m done with just holding hands.
I think Rinko has a fair chance. She is bolder than people give her credit for. The problem is Takeo. He still sees Rinko has a pure girl that wouldn’t want to do those things, so he definitely won’t be the one to make the first move. I’m putting all my money on Rinko. I just hope it happens soon. I don’t want to see their first kiss during the last episode. That would be such a boring cliché.
