I originally planned on talking about this show and Himote House but the latter looks like a show not many will be interested in so I’ll just talk about the cheerleaders.
We start the episode with our leading pinky Kohane checking out a cool cheerleader exhibition and she was enthralled by one blue haired girl in particular.
Here’s our adorable future star chairleader Kohane who clearly had a lot of work to do but was determined to give it her all.
Kohane was excited to join the Chairleader Club but was deflated after finding out there wasn’t one. Fortunately seeing a certain someone at the entrance ceremony gave her the idea of starting one herself. She instantly hoped Uki would join but even sweet talking her into doing so wasn’t enough. Next episode most likely.
Kohane kept trying her luck with convincing Uki and almost got hurt falling down the stairs but was fortunately saved by a blue haired angel.
Said angel was Arima Hizume. The chairleader Kohane was enthralled by that one day. Unfortunately she seemed to have lost her smile.
This is going to be a fun show for sure.
Kohane…pretty much chased after Arima to try and get her to join the club but to no avail. At one point Arima was less convinced when Kohane revealed she had a fear of heights. Even so Kohane explained that she wanted to become a cheerleader for three reasons:
- She loved helping people and chairleaders brought happiness to everyone who saw them (Unless they’re the Dallas Cowboys chairleaders. Those provide raging ring boners).
- To overcome her fear of heights.
- Because seeing Arima inspired her.
Kohane showered her with praise and was about to consider it but when she said Arima was special it brought up a terrible past experience, causing her to unfairly lash out at Kohane…or an attempt to do so. Point being Kohane unknowingly struck a nerve and Arima got mad at her.
Arima felt bad for what she did and thought it was for the best because it meant Kohane would stay away from a meanie like her. Arima didn’t know who she was dealing with…Kohane’s main character powers were on a whole other level.
Kohane still wanted to get on Arima’s good graces and figured the first step was “getting gud” at chairleading.
Arima felt more conflicted than before and as she passed by groups working together she remembered that tragic day when her teammates turned their backs on her because she refused to “drop down to their level” of chairleading. Arima was a chairleading beast who got ostracized by scrubs who didn’t want to “git gud”.
After the scolding from the day prior Uki revealed she knew about what happened to Arima. With this info Kohane pulled a dangerous stunt in one last ditch effort to convince Arima that her devotion to chairleading and to support her were the real deal.
Next time Kohane will try again to get Uki to join the club.
Like I said above this will be a good, fun watch. Not a mind-blowing premiere but it doesn’t always have to be in order to be enjoyable. Looking forward to more.
