BOCCHI THE ROCK! Episode 7: Casa de La Loner

Well what do you know. Two episodes about the heroines coming over to a friend’s house in the same week. How nice.

Hitori welcomes Kita and Nijika to her house

As we can see the friend’s house in question was Hitori’s and she came prepared to welcome her first ever homies over in style. Bless her. The dear did her best to make it as cool as possible. They came over to discuss shirt designs for their upcoming performance but Kita’s more focused on having a good time. Hitori too as we’d soon see but Nijika tried her best to keep the trio focused. What about Ryo? Take a wild guess.

Kita and Futari

Hitori sad her sister and dog befriended the girls quicker than she didAfter Hitori went to get drinks the real fun started. The first ones to confirm Hitori’s “friends” were in fact real…this time…were her imouto Futari and cutie doggy Jimihen. Upon our main girl’s return she’s shocked how easily the two befriended her homies. Later her parents confirmed they’re real too. As they saw the madness of Hitori’s life at home and her family’s questionable but in the right place support of her they deduced she’s a lovable mess at home too.

Hitori imagines the horrors of sports festivalsThen it’s back to business. The girls drew and compared ideas of shirt designs. When Kita showed hers it reminded Nijika of a sports festival. That was yet another trigger to Hitori. Possibly the longest one yet according to Nijika who said this “BOCCHI Time” went through commercial. Very impressive indeed. Also yet another great 4th wall joke and the BOCCHI Time continuing she’s brought back to reality by mom. One moment had me a bit puzzled. As Hitori thought how weird it was having friends over she either went to the bathroom or closet to relief stress. This being Hitori either one would be likely.

Hitori's shirt designAfter more off screen fun times and a het rom-com movie that understandably scarred Hitori we resumed the shirt design mission. Ryo showed hers via phone which was a typical setup to a Ryo joke. Finally it’s Hitori’s turn and it’s something else to say the least.

Hitori shows a new outfitHitori, desperately wanting to impress her homies, thought their surprised reactions meant she nailed it when they changed the subject and asked if she had other clothes. Mom always bought her clothes but she didn’t wear them. Extremely intrigued they asked her to try one out. Twas cute but Nijika wasn’t satisfied and tried to awaken Hitori’s hidden power…They were cursed…On the bright side days later after the homies recovered Nijika revealed she gained the power to read Hitori’s mind.

Kessoku Band's shirt designsIn the end Nijika chose the shirt design for the band. Simple but effective. The gang were ready for the show but they remembered hearing news of a storm hitting on the day of the concert. Kita assured them the storm changed directions and there’d be no issue but because we needed an obstacle it struck on the day of the concert after all.

Great stuff as always.

    Hitori is as amusing as always. I can understand why Nijika and Ikuyo enjoy being with Futari and the dog since they are cute and more outgoing. I can relate to Hitori as I am not athletic myself and don’t like field day.

    Also, Hitori melting down after Nijika lifting her bangs is funny. I do admit, Hitori looks cute with thee clothes her parents picked out. Also interesting how they picked Nijika’s design in the end.

    Bocchi, being an introvert, tried way too hard to impress her freinds. Reminds me of another “Bocchi.” Her Sports day freak-out wazs the best one yest. I love how this show plays with the animation style to match the mood.
    Bocchi’s whole family are so cute, no wonder she has a complex. (also, dog named afer Jimi Hendrix. That’s just good taste.)

    I don’t think the world is ready for Cute Bocchi, yet. Or rather, Bocchi isn’t ready for the army of fangirls she would attract if she wore cuter clothes. I guess it’s jerseys for now.

    Another Fantastic Episode!

    The scene where Nijika and Kita coming to Hitori’s house was great!

    Adorable Futari and puppy are adorable.

    Hitori’s family are very entertaining!

    Ryo’s reasons(lies) for getting out of situations are hilarious.

    The whole end of the Hitori house visit was fantastic and utterly hilarious! Love this show!

    Excited for more!

    It’s funny how the timid Hitori unconsciously does such bold things (like a banner on the house). Unity and Struggle of Opposites 😀

    BTR continues to be an amazing show each week.

    Bocchi reliving her trauma of school events was a hilarious sequence. The animation changes in this show are amazing and this time using a full on diorama to showcase that event, wow the production on this show never fails to impress.

    Bocchi’s parents were so relieved to find out her friends were real, another hilarious moment.

    Just so many great things this week. I can’t get enough of this show.

    Didn’t think we’d see the ep title be the same as the show so early on, but I guess that’s what we’re getting next week! Until then!

      The “BOCCHI Time” scenes always deliver.

      Her family rule because they know their Hitori is special in many ways.

      Must mean it’s finally time for their live show against all odds. Excited!

    Bocchi continues being so lovable at being socially awkard.
    When the dog and the kid have better social skills than you. I feel you girl.
    Also as is usual for shut ins, Bocchi looks really good in that outfit!
