This week's opener for Binbougami finally featured arguably the two funniest characters in the anime : Momo and Bobby. Hell, they even came up with a song based on their fetishes! A must listen for oppai lovers!
The ecchi song that they came up with :
While the main purpose of using a public is to wash yourself up using a public facility in Japan when you don't have a proper shower area at home, the characters in this episode had other ideas. Bobby and Momo were so determined to peek at the girls bathing on the other side of the public bath, where a wall stood in between to separate the males and females, obviously to protect one's privacy.
Well, they had obviously neglected the purpose of the wall.
I also noticed a change in Keita. He was always the type that is oblivious to girls and never showed any signs of blushing. In this episode though, he reveals much of what was going on in his mind and was even lucky enough to have a clear view of Ichiko's naked body (though he did not admit to have seen Ichiko's voluptuous figure). This shows clearly that even the cool headed and seemingly oblivious to girls cannot resist the opposite sex!
Another surprising twist in the story is clearly Momiji's visual and personality change that maybe had some viewers go, "Well this was bound to happen". However to me, I have to admit I really did not see that coming. What that I really find interesting about this was that Momiji actually hasn't showered for 3 years. I'm surprised that nobody in the anime ever noticed about how a person who hasn't bathed for 3 years not smell really bad but this paved the way to a change in Momiji and I must say, I loved her transformation, even though it only surfaced at the final few minutes of the episode. Good news is, we get to see more of her new personality in the following episode. It's amazing how a bath can change the way a God looks and behaves.
In my personal opinion, the best scene has to be when Keita actually saw Ichiko stark naked. Both characters were blushing, full of embarrassment, seeing each other topless and for Ichiko, in nude. The air of romance in this scene really had me jumping in excitement, as Keita kept himself together and tried to convince Ichiko that he didn't see any of Ichiko's private areas. Very gentlemanly approach from Keita, as he walks out of the bathhouse.
All in all, I absolutely loved this episode as with the previous ones because every episode that had been on air was just funny and romantic throughout even though sometimes things can pop out from nowhere and make no sense. It has its flaws in terms of common sense, but there's just not much to criticize about this anime. I just enjoy it for how funny it has been and how it can really liven up someone when he's on a terrible mood. Sadly, there's only two episodes left and even though I'm not expecting a standing ovation for the end of the series, I sure hope that this anime ends on a high note.
