Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?? Episode 3
Beautiful cinnamon roll too good for this world, too pure.
I lost to Megu this episode.
I’m not doing too well. But it was really nice surprise to learn that it wasn’t just Chino, but that they’d vary the featured Chimame-tai every episode! If I can play against Maya next time, my life will be complete. Tell me nothing about Episode 4, these are serious spoilers. I haven’t seen it yet, it’s not the appropriate time for me to use it up yet. But my work productivity was much greater today than it was yesterday (i.e. after watching the episode followed by a good night of sleep) so I can continue to endorse the magical healing properties this gift from god is providing me with. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
I don’t know why I keep making these posts, but a factor is probably that I have more e-resources to share: http://watch.gochiusa.club
No idea who keeps creating these, but they have patrician taste in anime. No one who likes Gochiusa enough to create free online flash games for it can be a bad person. It’s basically Game & Watch, except it features Tippy, Anko and Wild Geese, and you have to bounce them off a trampoline using Chino and Cocoa. It’s harder than Flappy Tippy, so be prepared!
I also now understand the twirling Megu in the ED. I think it was a Megu episode in general, which is strange because we’ve never really had one before. And I was convinced halfway through that she was voiced by Nakahara Mai, but it turned out to be Murakawa Rie, who most recently did Hotarun – she’s pretty good for a newbie seiyuu. Gochiusa is nurturing Minase Inori too, who is probably now my favourite newbie seiyuu after her stunning performance as Carol last season. Anyway, I thought Megu’s Tippy drawing was really good! I mean, it was normal, yeah, but that was because it looked the most like Tippy – which is the point, right? Rize’s was just too perfect though.
My favourite scenes were when Tippy said ‘Chino is home!’ at the end, as well as when Cocoa ran up to Chimame-tai at the start and went ‘KAWAII IMOUTO-TACHI’ (because that’s exactly what they are, hnnnggg). ‘Team Blood Blisters though… really, HS? I don’t know what it is in kanji, but isn’t it just supposed to be the first syllable of Chino, Maya and Megu in that order? No need to turn it into Gakkou Gurashi. Also, that scene were Cocoa had Tippy on her head was really cute, as well as when she was all happy at being told she was a good onee-chan. It was a good episode for Cocoa.
But I was really sad that Chino didn’t end up using the choreography in the ED for their little dance thing. Another way of looking at it is that all’s well and good, because I don’t think my heart would be able to take a live performance of them doing it. Incidentally, my favourite bit is Maya bobbing up and down during the chorus, although the single most overpowered frame has to be that one. You know which one I mean. That one.
PSA: The FULL ED is OUT NEXT WEEK. So a date for your diaries: Nov 11 2015. BE THERE.
