Netsuzou Trap -NTR- Episode 11: Confused Sheepdog no more…sort of

I have a feeling this show will end either with everything resolved next time or as a manga lure. I predict the latter.

Close yet more distant than ever.jpg

So last time we left Sheepy Sheepdog and Sad Panda inadvertently keeping their promise of shooting some hoops together. We joined them after the game with them discussing a certain someone. Long conversation short it went like this:

Sheepdog: Someone has been on my mind for a very long time. I’m always in agony thinking about them. They’re always toying with me and I let them.

Panda: You like this person, don’t you?

Sheepdog: WHAT!? No way!

Panda: Really? Because everything you described was what I was going through while dating you.

Huh. Somewhere in my mind I was expecting this but didn’t think they’d go through with it. What do I mean? Having Sad Panda STAY a babyface and not go the safe route by having him turn heel. See. In these kinds of dramas with two ladies and one guy, if the guy starts off a babyface and his woman slowly starts leaning towards the lesbian, they usually have the guy turn heel in order to make the audience side with the lesbian even more. Here however, they stuck to their guns and went with the “nice guys finish last” approach. It sucks but sadly that’s how it has been for a long time in romantic dramas and telenovelas…at least that’s how I remember it.

Anyway Sad Panda suggested Sheepy Sheepdog tell this person in their face how they really feel. Sheepdog had a feeling it wouldn’t work but tried anyway.

Sexy Devil’s sad kiss.

It didn’t work as Sexy Devil, now in all-out Stupid Idiot mode, still thought pushing Sheepy Sheepdog away was the best option to protect her from danger when all it did was mess with Sheepdog’s mind even more. After that it felt like deja vu as Sheepdog talked with a group of gal pals while Stupid Devil silently moped from a distance.



Again all this did was make Sheepdog EVEN MORE MISERABLE! Then one night while worrying about her future she heard a loud crash from Stupid Devil’s room. She rushed over and what she saw was the above image.

I have a bad feeling about this. Re-Todd is usually a calculated piece of triceratops doodoo and make sure to keep his douchebaggery under wraps. Something really bad must have happened for him to lose his cool, more than usual. Uhhhh. I’ve seen enough dramas with mom over the years to have an idea what that something is. I’ll wait and see if I’m right.

    I pray for “Aoi Hana” ending. Sweet ending but still makes people want to read the manga. But whatever it is I’m ready.

    What a role reversal! It’s amazing how the clue stick came tumbling down, from none other than Sad panda, or I’m afraid Sheepy sheepdog would still be in the dark. Now Yuma, let the power of your love envelope Sexy Devil wholesale! If it’s one thing this show does well, it’s the damm cliffhangers. Always have me hooked on, and waiting for the next to roll around! 😀

    Yuma finally gets the last bit of a clue, and Hotaru lies one more time, keeping up her mostly truth with a lie mixed in technique. Yuma is her best friend, and she loves her.

    I noticed Yuma didn’t shy away from that last kiss, despite being in a very visible place. I think that if all assface has on Hotaru is her relationship with Yuma, Yuma could solve that issue very quickly at this point.

    Hotaru’s unlocked door policy comes in handy for once.

    Call the police and will be ”Bad boys, bad boys, what you’re gonna do when they come for you?”

    The worst case scenario for this show would be ending up to be an unfinished anime like Sasameki Koto. But, hey, I am quiet optimistic. I think they’ll either give us a happy ending or a second season. I hope they know that open-ended is very risky if you are not almost sure that S2 will be green-lit.

    I think this episode is the most disappointing one for me in that, Yuma has finally confessed her true feelings to Hotaro, but she just brushed her off?! Wasn’t this what she would’ve wanted all along? I thought she’d be delighted. Or at a minimum acknowledged it and explained why she couldn’t be together with Yuma. Frustrating.

    I definitely hope for a satisfying ending next week, manga lore be damned.

      She didn’t brush it off. In her mind keeping Sheepdog away was the best course of action to protect her from Re-Todd’s wrath, which of course is not the right decision.

    AmI the only one who hopes they DON’T get together? Admit their repressed feeling? Yes. Have a tumble in bed? Maybe, if they’re drunk. Try to turn this mess into an actual relationship? (Imagine me laughing in an increasingly deranged manner. )

    Hotaru and Yuma are TOXIC to each other. Anyone who engenders this level of self-destructive behavior is NOT good for you! They can’t be in the same zip code without hurting each other. If they ever got together, it would go one of two ways:
    1. Years of pent-up loathing, resentment, and sadness will fester until the dried-out husks, that used to be their souls are all that’s left.

    One, or both, will cheat on the other just to sabotage the relationship, because she doesn’t think she’s “good enough” for the other. So, while, the show runners may create a “happy” ending; the relationship between these two is pure poison.

      That’s the kind of relationship we were all expecting from the start. As for whether they could make it SOMEHOW work, I dunno. Not a romance expert so I can’t predict what they’d do after hooking up.
