In this episode we joined our heroines out shopping for supplies and their first day of school, specifically KAOS and Koyume.
To be honest there isn’t much to say regarding the girls’ shopping trip. Most of it consisted of highlights, meaning “Pick your fav scene”. Besides that we had KAOS the country girl being overwhelmed by the big city and her new friends helping her get accustomed to it as they shopped for supplies. The one thing that stood out for me was Tsubasa’s rare showing of excitement for something, be it supplies she really wanted or an autograph from a mangaka she liked.
If there was one other highlight I wanted to bring up it would be this scene where KAOS was encouraged by other aspiring mangaka at the store. I don’t know what it was but their encouragement and how the her friends reacted had me laughing for minutes.
So the second half of the episode was about KAOS (and a little bit of Koyume)’s first day at their new high school. It was no surprise that Tsubasa’s popular with the girls. We also learned Ruki and Tsubasa were in the same year as KAOS and Koyume despite looking older than the two. My first highlight was when the lovely Miss Nijino debuted. Koyume thought she was adorable but it was KAOS’ reaction to her scolding that’s noteworthy.
Unsurprisingly KAOS’ first introduction didn’t go so well. Plus her being socially inept made it very difficult for her to communicate with other classmates besides Ruki and Tsubasa. When asked about her interests she had some interesting responses…she was too afraid to share for obvious reasons.
When it was time to take a break KAOS became disheartened when she saw how easily Koyume befriended her classmates while she struggled. Ruki suggested she ask Miss Nijino to have KAOS sit next to them.
Seeing KAOS’ adorable appreciation hit an arrow through Ruki’s heart. KAOS’ cuteness was a lethal weapon. Tsubasa told KAOS she didn’t need to befriend everyone but instead observe them to gather more inspiration for her manga.
Like her distant cousin Hinako from Hinako Note KAOS has a strong affinity with animals.
Next episode looks to be very very promising. Yeeeessssss.
