Minami-ke 09 out today by Ayako. Really entertaining episode. They shifted away from what they were doing in the previous several episodes and decided, once again, to focus purely on the three Minami sisters. Overall feeling was positive, although we don't really get to see anything new from this episode that we don't know already (aside from one moment from Haruka). Spoilers be ahead, so if you don't want it spoiled, don't read on just yet!
Haruka is looking extremely bored here on her day off. This first part really cements her as the character who really invests herself heavily in the well-being of her siblings - perhaps too heavily. Left to her own devices, she doesn't really know what to do.
Cake scene was also awesome. She's finally showing her self-indulgent side. Kana's reaction upon arriving home was also priceless - exactly as would be expected from the BOSS. Chiaki, on the other hand, seems to be far too mature for her age. I guess the years that Kana should have developed socially instead went over to Chiaki.
We're also getting down to the root of why Kana is such a baka in the first place. Chiaki apparently has a lot to say on this subject - enough to fill a 10,000 word essay. Kana, in her baka-ness'ed attempt to keep Chiaki up all night due to waking her up by sitting on her, decides to make Chiaki explain exactly why she thinks Kana is such an idiot. Of course, like any conversation that drags on into the night, they start to become unintelligible.
Also, pulling down someone's pants is the best way to prevent them from leaving the room, true story. The sickness part was also quite humorous. Guess no matter how nice Chiaki might seem to Kana, she still has those sinister intentions behind her words. Kana, on the other hand, is nice, and wants to feed Chiaki an apple when she gets sick:
After a grueling battle against her vegetables and some exchanging of clothes, Chiaki makes a cheese lemon custard chiffon pie, which turns out to reveal that.... the BOSS is a tsundere?
Next episode is "Boy x Girl", and from the preview, is there another possible trap coming onto the show? Will Mako-chan have some competition?
