Aoharu x Kikanjuu Episode 11: Let’s Do Something Fun Together
So we learn that Yukimura did in fact lie in his story to Hotaru. The thing that happened in TGC with their female teammate wasn’t as bad as he described it. And they were also the ones that were in the wrong.
The moment with Midori was short, it took up a little less than half of the episode. They played a little game where they simultaneously had to shoot a target for points. Getting the headshot would automatically make you the winner even if you didn’t shoot any of the other body parts, which is what happened with Hotaru. Throughout, Midori was testing Hotaru’s resolve. He claimed that he would take Masamune and Yuki into his team if Hotaru never got them back and that struck an ugly chord in her. But of course Masamune would never want to join Midori’s team when he wants to beat him.
Yukimura invites Hotaru back in his home so they could talk and he tells her everything about their team’s past, no lies. With their female player, Yukimura mentioned that he had embellished the story from before, taking advantage of Hotaru’s sense of justice and telling them just how evil Midori is just so she could unleash that drive in her and really help them beat Hoshishiro. It was their first TGC tournament. Masamune had been shot and called out “Hit” like your supposed to. But he hears the cries of help from his female teammate and sees her running towards him without her gun and Midori following behind her. As she’s backed into a corner and Midori is about to shoot, Masamune breaks the rules and shoots Midori’s gun to prevent him to hurt the girl. Fujimoto came out and held Masamune down so he wouldn’t interfere since he’s supposed to be “dead”, and Midori shoots the female player. But it actually wasn’t torture or anything. He just shot her and that’s it (though he was pretty close to her so it must have hurt a lot). Hoshishiro never broke any rules, Toy Gun Gun did. But what actually broke Masamune was what Midori said to him. Mocking him for being a host for women and not being able to protect them. So that really took a hit at his ego. And so that made him not want to have girls on his team.
The female player was in the first tournament. They skipped the fourth one, and they went to the fifth one with Hotaru. In the second and third tournaments they were with another player, a male. And I went back to last week’s episode and I’m 99% sure the hooded guy that reacted to Toy Gun Gun’s name at the maid cafe is the same guy. He stayed on the team the longest for two years, but in the end he left the team for the same reason that Masamune kicked Hotaru out. This guy had the same love for survival games, but after all of Masamune’s personal beef with Midori, he decided to leave the team. But to really tear Masamune apart, before he left he told him to his face that he hated survival games and it was all his fault. He was the one that made him hate it. After that, they took a break from the TGC and survival battles the following year. And then that’s when Hotaru came into the picture.
Yukimura explains the real reason why Masamune had kicked her out. He also says that Masamune isn’t as heroic as Hotaru thinks. Masamune is just really obsessed with Midori. Everything that’s happened with the team is all Masamune’s fault really. It’s that sick obsession of his he won’t get rid of that’s hurt the team in the long run. Again, but what I really want to know is what happened between them. They used to be close friends but somewhere along the way something went horribly wrong and now he can’t get Midori out of his head.
Knowing all this, Hotaru challenges Masamune to a match, as she agrees again that she’ll save Masamune. Even if she’ll make him wake up next episode, well…it’ll be the finale. And I want to see more! I know there has to be more content, things just don’t seem finished. The drama with Midori is definitely not over, so I hope we get another season. Also, when Yukimura was apologizing for lying to her, I thought Hotaru would have something along the lines of “It’s okay, you haven’t been the only one that’s been lying.” and then reveal her gender. I thought it would have been a good time. Will she tell them next week? I hope so because if she doesn’t I’m going to be pissed.
