Kawaikereba Hentai demo Suki ni Natte Kuremasu ka? – Cinderella took off her swimwear?!

Oh my fucking god. Are you kidding me? Here I was, about to be like ‘well, well, well. Look who was right the whole time.’ and then they gave us the stupidest plot reveal I’ve ever seen and now I can’t think about anything else. The justification for Mizuha being in love with him is that they’re the SAME AGE and only 5 MONTHS apart. In 16 years of life, Keiki NEVER, not once realized that it was maybe a bit weird that him and his sister were only 5 months apart? “I thought it just meant they tried really hard.” That was such an unnecessary detail! They easily could have just said they were a year apart and just still said he was adopted or something. Why did they make it such a dumb, obvious thing that only serves to make Keiki look like an idiot?!

Anyway, I need my glory. I think the fact that they had not even included Mizuha as a suspect was reason enough for most people to assume that she was the culprit. I don’t think it was especially hard to figure out, but I’m still damn proud I guessed right.

Apart from that lame twist at the end, this was basically everything a viewer could ask for. It had the pool episode, lots of bikini shots, a confession contest, Mizuha loses her innocence and joins the world of yaoi and there was the final reveal of who Cinderella really was. I was a little bummed Shoma didn’t make an appearance. I mean, they even worked in Koharu for the confession contest host so I thought maybe he’d be there too. That loop de loop on that water slide was the most unbelievable thing about this show. Do you know how fast you’d have to go to do a full circle? I can let everything else slide but that was just too far.

I liked during the confession contest that Keiki was breaking down all the wordplay in the romantic confessions to what they really were. “I’ll give you my everything.” Yeah, in other words be my dog. The art, story and characters may be lacking but hey, at least it makes me laugh. There is no way Nanjo’s weak ass confession scored higher than Yuika and Sayuki.

Then we got to the reveal. With the other three girls waiting at the bus stop, it was quite the bold move to just throw up his “little sister’s” skirt. The reveal was so serious though that it made me confront how odd this show is. The way Keiki laid everything out, like a real detective. Talking to suspects and witnesses, gathering evidence, having a council to discuss progress in the case. Like it was almost too dramatic for what it was. I had to keep reminding myself that we were talking about someone leaving a pair of underwear and a love letter in high school. It sounded like a damn murder case from the way he was talking.

I don’t have much else to say, except that I was right and I want this whole thing to be over now. What even happens next episode? What are the chances he picks a girl? I’ll eat a sock if he does.

A weeb, an otaku, or something else entirely? No, no. It's probably one of the first two. Avid watcher and, now, writer of all things anime, I'm pleased to make your acquaintance. Though our waifus and husbandos may differ in the future, I'm hopeful we can remain friends or, at the very least, not become bitter enemies. It's a pleasure.
