Saenai Heroine No Sodate-Kata Episode 6
So we’re back to the world of creepy guy and his dating sim. Well…actually this week, not so much. In fact, this week features absolutely no Eriri or Kato. That’s right. This episode entirely features the black haired author chick (jesus why can’t i remember her name?) as well as the main dude. It’s part flashback/part now. But…. I’ll get into that in a moment.
So the episode starts with a bit of a flashback to when he and the girl first meet. It turns out that he met her at a book signing and did that annoying fan thing when they ask 14 million questions when getting an autograph. However, instead of annoying, she finds this kind of charming as she sees his enthusiasm.
It then cuts to after the previous episode where he’s going to go meet up with her after his “date” with Kato. However he can’t seem to find her as she isn’t at the place she said they’d meet and he starts to run around looking for her as she’s ignoring his cell calls.
Eventually, as the last train for the night leaves he realizes where she is and goes to run after her, getting drenched in the rain in the process.
He does indeed find her, and she takes him back to her hotel room to take a shower. But of course we get the big problem with that. He’s in her hotel room. Yeah …. yeah you know where this is going.
we get hit with another flashback however as we see that after their first encounter she becomes pretty obsessed with his opinion on what should happen in the final book of her series and asks him to read the manuscript when it’s done.
He refuses because….I’m not quite sure. I THINK its because he doesn’t want to get to read it before other fans. And that’s when she gives him the nickname “Mr. Ethical”
Meanwhile in the present time as they’re in the hotel room, she makes it REALLY obvious she wants his dick. Like REALLY obvious
And he uses THIS opportunity to ask her to make a man out of him. And by that he means help him become a better writer. Yeah…cause that’s not dick way to phrase it.
It’s okay though, because she steps on him for it. and it makes me laugh.
So they spend the next couple of hours working on the plot of the game because he thinks that the thing that’s missing is the main girl being even happier at the end.
They end up falling asleep and she has to leave to go to work the next morning after she tells him that she’s glad they worked on that the previous night. and that’s where the episode ends.
See, here’s the thing about this episode. I actually hate this guy less than I have than any other episode. Not because he’s a better character this episode, but because Kato’s not in this episode for him to be a creepy stalker over. When she’s not in the picture, he becomes a lot less creepy but keeps up the level of annoyance. He basically becomes a stereotypical clueless male protagonist of a harem show. Which…is less painful when Kato’s around.
The biggest issue I have with this show is that these girls reinforce his bad behavior. They’re enablers who let him do what he wants with only moderate annoyance.
At the very least I got to know more about the black haired girl which is good. She’s become less of a bland boring character and is interesting to the point that I actually want to know more about her.
The problem is, the girls are all FAR more interesting characters than the main male character, and it isn’t the kind of boring that you can self insert yourself in his shoes. This character is far too creepy, far too annoying to be self inserted by ANYONE. These girls are actually ridiculously lowering their standards by going after this guy.
This episode didn’t fill me with hate as the others had, but it just made me realize that she’s too good for him. And if she keeps going after him, she’s only going to have her heart broken, and she doesn’t deserve that. I actually feel really bad for her and just hope she can get over this guy soon.
All in all it was an okay episode but it just makes me sad as I realize how good of a character this girl actually is. So, I guess there’s that.
