Fanservice-wise, one of the weaker episodes for sure.
[UPDATE1] Unfortunately, NoxBasket deleted her gfycat account after she stopped writing for fapservice. Her WebMs for this review have been re-uploaded to gfycat and the album link has been updated. In addition, gfycat embed code was updated from an old WordPress plugin to newer Responsive Iframes. Please note that this is a review of the TV show as it aired and not the BDs.
This episode leaves off from the beach blast from last week. I think we all knew the crap was going to hit the fan when that new character appeared at the end.
Gainaxing is the biggest highlight of this episode, I guess they just wanted to focus on story this time.
Yame gets upset, conflict and drama ensue, yadda yadda yadda.
Good to see Yui’s still active online.
Clearly, something’s up.
Yui reaches out to have a word with Junichi.
In short, she gets upset too.
Nene’s not too happy either.
Now Ranko’s upset because Yame is. Good to see that Ranko is doing a better job than Junichi.
Looks like they forgot to color her fingers white.
Well, seeing how the show itself is coming down to the end, it’s no surprise they decide to suddenly add a climax. While that can excuse the lack of service, it doesn’t make up for the rushed art and low budget. It was pretty obvious that Hajimete wasn’t going to be somewhere around To-Love Ru quality but the obvious decline is kind of a letdown. For now, we can pray that some shots get polished on BDs…speaking of which, I’m sort of losing hope for nudity. The nip slip might seem like a breakthrough but keep in mind it’s the only possible shot that could hold nudity. All the other episodes seem to be completely non-nude and finalized. We’ll see what Hajimete offers in the future though…
