Episode 36: This is a pretty interesting episode for Minami since we are introduced to Minami's parents and a marine veterinarian, Dr Kitakaze Asuka voiced by Sakamoto Maaya. (God Eater's Alisa) The first act was introducing to Minami's parents who are pretty nice people and has the support of their guests during their address speech.
Minami was amazed by Asuka's occupation and her love of the ocean but what make Asuka interesting was her attitude not to work with the Kaido company. Despite Minami's father offering to sponsor her, she claimed that she does not like to be tied down with rules and regulation and rather be a carefree spirit in her research.
Minami was surprised by her decline which later in the episode, Asuka asked her what is her goal in life and she replied is to work in the family business. But after this encounter with Asuka, she is having second thoughts. Being young and seeing a person like Asuka with such care-free attitude make her question whether is working for the family business an obligation or will she make a drastic choice and follow what she really want.
I am pretty sure a lot of us during our younger years have such moments when you are thinking the job that I have is a career or just a job? I hope that we get one more episode about Minami and see if she is having second thoughts about her future and no matter what it is, I hope her family will be able to support the path she make.
Episode 37: Every class was asked to come up with a play for the upcoming drama festival. For Haruka's class is the Shakespeare classic-Romeo and Juliet. With Haruka as Juliet and fellow classmate, Hirano as Romeo, the play was pump up by hardcore play director and classmate, Furuya voiced by Ueda Kana. (Fate Stay Night's Tohsaka Rin)
|Hirano is lucky to get supported by two hot girls!|
Haruka had a hard time conveying Juilet's emotions and was reprimanded multiple times by Furuya. Although Kanata later help Haruka to practice her lines, the surprising twist was after the battle with the Zetsuborg. Hirano suffered a twist ankle before the play and Kanata offered to step in.
However Haruka insisted that it should be their class to do the performance and not take the easy way out. From a layman's point of view, you might say Haruka is making thing difficult but I am seeing that since that everyone worked so hard for the play, it should be their responsibility to see all the way through and not taking the easy way out by asking Kanata. (Haruka will make a good motivator if she want a career)
The fight was all right despite a timer counting down for a bomb which the Zetsuborg was carrying and it was defused thanks to Cure Flora shielding everyone and Cure Mermaid freeze the bomb.
Overall for both episodes, I gave a B plus thanks to the guest seiyus who make the show more interesting. It may looked like filler but it also helped to develop both Minami and Haruka's personal characters.
Next episode, a new student who looked similar to Close (which I am guessing it is him in disguise) lured the girls into a trap! Can the girls sprang his trap? Until then, see you next week! Gokigenyou!
