Before getting into Yamada-kun’s latest episode, I wanted to say that DanMachi is on the backburner for now and while we’ll probably do commentary for some future episodes of that, it’s definitely on the backburner for now.
With that said, it’s time for Yamada-kun’s beach episode and some unexpected gap moe.
Shinzen: Wait, they have a clubhouse?
PumpkinMochi: I guess so.
PumpkinMochi: Wow lewd.
Shinzen: Wait, wasn’t he there at the start? I guess I didn’t notice.
Shinzen: Oh, so he was with them at the beginning.
PumpkinMochi: Yeah, he just had to stay inside.
Kelloggs: She just loves taking tests so much.
Kelloggs: Goddamnit. It’s like he’s never done this before.
Boundless: What is wrong with your face?
PumpkinMochi: Why does he look like a dog?
Kelloggs: He’s a dog teacher, don’t worry about it. He’s an experiment.
Kelloggs: I was gonna say, okay they’re all alone now, time to kiss. But Yamada’s not actually here, so how would that work?
Shinzen: Didn’t they pass all the exams already?
Kelloggs: I thought it was a review class.
Shinzen: Kiss her! Find out her power!
Kelloggs: You can’t just do that, man. You have to wait for the right moment, light some candles, and other stuff.
PumpkinMochi: Nice pen.
Boundless: Could her power be telepathy? She can share thoughts with other people and they were gonna steal his answers?
Shinzen: Hm, might be.
Kelloggs: This is my telepathy pose!
Shinzen: Wait, so how did- Eh, never mind.
ParticularlyPeeved: Unfortunately, she had a group of all idiots.
Kelloggs: I was gonna say, yeah. This pact was formed between the three biggest idiots in class. Now, it’s the four biggest idiots.
Shinzen: Fucking shit! This show’s so dumb!
Shinzen: Different scores? Was there miscommunication?
Kelloggs: I’m overwhelmed by this gap moe.
Kelloggs: Um, okay.
Kelloggs: So in terms of character design, the next witch is the polar opposite of Otsuka. I’m not a fan. Although maybe she’ll have some kind of gap moe in her power too.
PumpkinMochi: Maybe. I don’t know if they’ll do the same thing again though.
Kelloggs: We’ll see. The point is, gap moe is awesome.
