It’s VDay time for our dear Adachi. Was her body ready to spend another big holiday with Shimamura?
Her heart sure was, not sure about her mind.
Have I mentioned how sexy and awesome the adult women are on this show? Add Shaman Taoka to the list, especially because she had me busting my gut every time she appeared, which was often. Bless you sexy Shaman.
Adachi listened to Shaman Taoka’s horoscopes daily leading up to her next bit (not) date. First she paid attention to how compatible Aries and Libra. They supposedly weren’t but Adachi wouldn’t accept that. At least she learned Adachi’s birthday, April 10th. I expect a birthday episode soon.
Next horoscope said to change her hairstyle so her crush would notice. She did and then some. Adachi’s on cloud 9.
Adachi’s heart was full of passion and dread. She was in so deep she couldn’t contain her love power and it somewhat scared her. She sent Shimamura pics of her chocolate batter. She knew it was weird but couldn’t stop herself. Later Shimamura was surprised with a call from Shiny Traitor Tarumi. She called once before but Shimamura wasn’t there. Adachi rival confirmed.
So Yashiro can fly. Okay then.
Still unhappy Hino’s Aunt interrupted a magical moment but as I said the adult women on this show are blessings. Why she’s pulling a “Miss Bellum” compared to other women on the show I have no idea. Shimamura and NagaHino invited Adachi over to play some Fortune Street (At least I think it was a Fortune Street-ish game) game. Adachi won because of course she did. Shimamura lost because of course she did. Naturally Adachi was more focused on Shimamura than the game.
Nothing really new to report between NagaHino this episode. They dropped some hints but no highlight worthy stuff.
Earlier Adachi and Shimamura in this scene mentioned how Adachi had changed. She’s a bit more open and assertive. Of course she had a ways to go but baby steps. Adachi meanwhile relished all the small rewards like the one here.
Her hair glows, her antennae can move on their own, she can fly and this is a Japanese series so it wouldn’t be unbelievable if she were indeed centuries old. Anyway this is what we were expecting to happen in the XMas episode, Yashiro unintentionally getting in the way and ruining the (not) date.
Adachi grew but only because she was motivated to be with Shimamura. Without her life was dark and lonely.
On day before VDay AdaShima both had profound thoughts. On Shimamura’s side she thought about their old hangout, thinking Adachi yearned to go back there. She thought it’s good they left it as it was a sign of progression but part of her wondered if going back there wouldn’t be a bad idea. Meanwhile Adachi was actually thinking about buying VDay choco for her sweetie. Alas her plan to bake some failed.
Excellent stuff as always. Next time it’s finally the VDay episode and it looks like it’ll be worth the wait.
