It’s almost like the animators of OniAi read my blog, which they obviously didn’t do. Why would they? How would they even find this cozy little blog amongst all the big ones? And if they did, why would they listen to one idiot’s man’s opinion? Still, I’m happy with what I saw.
We didn’t get to see much of Arisa this week, so she didn’t get many chances to make that squeaking sound of hers. Thank god, a whole episode without that “Kyuu” nonsense. They usually say that too much is better than none at all; that is not always true! It’s absolutely great in this case. That nonsense started to piss me off.
Anyway, Haruomi took the lead on this one with her cat addiction. She can’t let one go. She has to play with them, cuddle them and feed them. It’s only natural that Akito would find out eventually. That’s the funny thing about secrets; they always get discovered by someone. It doesn’t always happen right away, sometimes it takes years and years, but it does happen.
This episode was good because it wasn’t so complicated or pushy with all the fan service. It primarily revolved around Haruomi’s addiction and Akito’s attempt to recover from his cold. Recovering from a cold sound like child’s play. Just stay warm, drink a lot of water, get plenty of rest and eat healthy, wholesome foods. This kind of becomes challenging when you live in a house with girls that all want you for themselves. I was actually surprised that Arashi didn’t take this opportunity to try and benefit from it, because the rest certainly did. I’m sure that Arashi will get quite a lot of air-time next week. She has to!Read More
Never in a million years would I have guessed that I would have to watch an OniAi episode that revolved solely around swimsuits. All the fan service killed pretty much everything else. Seriously, guys… This is not how OniAi should be. This was just plain overkill.
To think that I had to sit here and watch those girls pick out their swimsuits for the majority of this week’s episode… Madness! The fan service was way too much and it didn’t leave much room for anything else. I don’t see the point of shopping for bathing suits in the winter. To hell with “you need to pick out a swimsuit early while there are still plenty of choices left”. Don’t they know how things actually work? It’s a girl’s job to pick out their most favourite swimsuit, but it’s our job, the job of a (real) man, to make sure that we get out girls out of that swimsuit and into our beds. That’s what it’s really all about, deal with it!
There are two final things that I would like to address; although the only time when I really laughed during this episode was when Haruomi got slapped in the face by Arashi’s breasts, I couldn’t help but notice that Kaoruko appeared once more. I like her, but I feel that she, being Akito’s editor and all, shouldn’t be so ridiculously shy, seeing as she’s the oldest one there. A bit of aggressiveness would probably do her good.
Finally, I don’t like Arisa. I really don’t. She was really adorable at first. But, having seen only one episode with her in it, I’m already becoming annoyed. Those little sounds she makes (“Kyuu”) were ridiculously cute at first, but they’re milking it out. It’s becoming annoying because she does it so often. Three times per episode, for me at least, would be the maximum. I can’t begin to count the amount of times she did it during this week’s episode.Read More
That settles it, OniAi isn’t going anywhere. Just sit back and enjoy the perverted comedy. It’s really a shame. A good story is the only thing that OniAi is really missing. Throw in a good story and you really have something there…
The show continued with the arrival of Arisa-chan, a young girl that’s supposed to run their house as the new caretaker. This girl is in love with Akito, a guy four years older than her, and she is under the impression that the two are engaged. Perhaps that’s true, since Akito did live with her and her parents for a long period of time. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Akito felt indebted to them and agreed to marry their daughter, Arisa. It would be sad if that were true. He wouldn’t be marry her for love (not that I believe in that). That would mean that he would marry her out of guilt.
There are two little things that I would like to say before I end this post. The first would have to be the sudden shift in Arisa’s personality. That character was very shy, hardworking and timid. Now she’s speaking her mind all the time and her attitude suddenly became very aggressive near the end. I liked her a lot better when she was acting all cute and innocent. I don’t like that polite, yet aggressive attitude.
The second part, and it’s something that even I forgot, would have to be the fact that what Akiko’s doing is wrong. She wants to do all sorts of things to her older brother. I, just like the other characters, had completely forgotten that such a relation is more than just frowned upon. It’s illegal (yet a lot of people seem to be inbreeding if I take a look at the local youth). How funny…Read More
It’s about time! I think the story is finally starting. It seems a bit cliché, but it’s too bad that it’s starting after six episode, instead of during the first or second episode. Oh well, it’s been very amusing up until this point, so why not…
The episode starts out with some kind of messed up love scene between two siblings. It’s a scene out of Akito’s love novel, so that explains a lot. I looked passed that. Didn’t really care for it. I focussed more on the fact that Kaoruko, Akito’s editor, paid Akito a visit. She wanted to inspect his living environment and see if he has indeed got a “siscon” (sister complex).
Frankly, I think he does. We mustn’t forget that he writes novels about love between siblings. I don’t mean family-type love, I mean sexual love. A ‘normal’ person doesn’t do that if he doesn’t think about it on a regular basis. A gay man writes about Justin Bieber, a doctor writes about medical stuff and someone with a (slight) sister complex writes siscon stories. It’s really that simple.
I soon forgot all about that when that little girl, a girl whom claims to be Akito’s fiancé, showed up at the end of this week’s episode. Seriously, why the hell didn’t they introduce her earlier? Its characters like these that make a story. Sure, it’s a bit cliché, but who cares? All the more reason for the girls to fight over him.
I think Arashi will like this least of all, after all… She’s the one that gave her the job. I’m very curious to see how she will react to this. She’ll probably just pretend like it’s no big deal and think that she’s just a little girl with a crush, clinging to a childish promise that was made a long time ago… Please let me be wrong!Read More
OniAi just got a whole lot more confusing. The characters are very predictable, unlike the story. I just cannot grasp this story. I thought that I had it somehow figured out, I thought that the characters would each get their time in the spotlight, and that it would be Arashi’s turn this week.
I never would have imagined that the episode would start out with Akito and his editor, a young woman that would do anything to help Akito. Oh yeah, she would do anything alright. She was under the impression that Akito had a thing for his little sister, Akiko. Poor girl didn’t know that it was actually the other way around, and that she should protect him instead of seducing him. Still, it was a smart plan; seduce your artist to make him stay away from his little sister. Too bad that most problems can’t be solved that way.
That was only the first half though. The second half, as I had hoped, did involve Arashi. She managed to trap Akito in a shed, even though it wasn’t her actions that caused the door to get locked. Akiko interfered and allowed Arashi to do as she pleased for quite some time. One thing’s for sure; you don’t want to give Arashi too much time (unless you’re straight).
I’m more confused than ever before. I really like OniAi, but I just cannot help but feel that it’s not going anywhere. It’s always the same thing; girls gradually get more and more interested in Akito, causing them to do the strangest things in the hope that he will look at them. It’s a bit childish if you think about it.Read More
