Woops, somehow I forgot about episode 9’s post..well this is awkward. I guess i’ll post it Friday or something.
Hey, this was actually a really good episode of Nichibros. Not the best, but it has slowly rebounded from last month’s lows to something that still manages to get a fair amount of laughter. As always, there’s some really good skits and some that aren’t so good.
Proven once again that anything with the literature girl is comedic gold, hinted in “Winter” skit and proven 100% true in “Run”. She’s the kind of character that doesn’t get old despite being a somewhat vague character. The weakest skits were the last two, with Hidenori and Yoshitake at school and the girls’ skit. The first was kind of funny, but it dragged on a little too long for my tastes. The second was a bit funnier, but for some reason it felt too short: my solution is to give the girls another segment like last episode. The other hilarious one involved Mitsuo probably having a really bad day, to say the least but he did emerge victorious at the end.
With two episodes left (Is it me or this season has a lot of 12 episode series?), the notion that this will have any sort of “conclusive” ending ought to be dismissed. As long as this show keeps up with the humor, preferably get the girls another skit and attempt more fourth wall breakings, I could still keep this at an 8/10 series. For now, i’m dropping it to a 7 but there’s enough time for that to change.
