—Ok, here we go again. At least we don’t get Kunio this time.
—Yuri is the best. I never get why she’s hanging around someone as lousy as Lady Sachi.
—Man, what is the deal with putting your bffs that are all comatose drunk into cabs by themselves and hoping for the best? Particularly after one of you almost got abducted and raped that way?
—The landlord roping them into running the booth for free rent sounds implausible until I remember the time in school the ceiling of our rental house caved in, and the landlord got us to clean it all up for a month’s rent.
—MC is stone cold, making dates right in front of two guys who like her.
—Wow, harsh that MC picked up the special Nanyami doll even though she didn’t give a crap about it compared to everyone else.
—Oh nice of MC to totally lie to Itaru about Toya being a nutcase so she doesn’t have to be indebted to him for saving her…LIKE HE DID.
—Basically MC can forgive and forget anything you’ve done to her unless your name rhymes with “bitaru.”
—GDI, I cant believe I screwed up the data hunt AGAIN.
—Ok, at this point, I might just go ahead and bag getting the early clear bonuses and just try to redo it the next time there’s a data hunt for me to botch.
—Well Joe is a nutcase, but at least the Nanyami doll went to someone who really appreciates it.
—Awesome that she’s now going around pulling cold hot dogs out of people’s hands so she can get the special love fortune.
—Oh Well, Kota was kind of grumpy anyway. I bet he’ll get a route someday.
—Ok, on to the specific routes. As usual, we’ll start with our least favorite and work up.
—Holy mackerel, she stole Sotaro’s breakfast! MC is like your nightmare roommate.
—Now she’s giving Sotaro’s breakfast to Keima and I just can’t anymore.
Oh good. Off to Germany with Keima and Lady Sachi. What could possibly go wrong.
—Ok, the fact that MC is letting this dude who probably stole her wallet front her money for gambling his so bad.
—The fact that he now wants her to sex off her debts to him is a surprise to only MC.
—Wow, I took so long with this, they actually started up another data hunt already.
—Ugh, can’t decide whether I like Joe or Toya least.
—Joe in whatever backwater village MC is from feels like it should turn out like Eva Gabor’s character in “Green Acres.”
—Well he acquitted himself like a normal person, but now he just seems like a totally different guy, since Joe’s always been marked by weirdly extravagant speech and actions.
—On to Toya. Maybe it’s just me, but if you JUST got frightened by a guy thinking that he was so mad he might let loose and beat you, maybe you don’t go along with it when he says he won’t let you go home and now you have to live with him.
—I always wonder if this is an actual Japanese thing or just a mechanism of fiction that people can decide to go stay at someone’s house or a hotel that same night with no preparation or anything.
—Like, I can’t stay somewhere overnight without about two hours of packing and a 30” duffel bag.
—Again, It seems like she went with him almost 30% because she really likes cake.
—I like that her big confession to him is “I love you…r cakes.”
—Wow, just read that getting the early clear data for both halves requires like 48 extra tickets, which I don’t have.
—Guess we’re letting this data hunt slide by as well.
—Back with Haruichi and his perpetual Yakuza girlfriend-threatening rivals.
—I feel like MC is, in the hysteria of the moment, overlooking the part where Haruichi said he had his henchmen investigate and report back on her living situation.
—Now he wants her to not go to work and just stay and sleep in his room for some indeterminate amount of time while he hunts down some threatening guys she hasn’t seen for herself yet, and now it’s sounding like HE’s kidnapped her.
—Asako has just told MC that she’s been living with the Mamiyas for forty years now, and I’m expecting her to say she was just staying until they hunted down their rivals too.
—Ok, I get that Haruichi is used to faction fighting within his own clan, but he seems pretty blasé about the fact that his MOM practically put a hit out on him.
—Ok Itaru. Try not to make me sad about MC’s treatment of you this time.
—Wow, she got all mad at him and I don’t even know why. Because the server dropped a glass? And he was nice about it?
—Maybe MC has been around so many of these nutbars, she forgot what a reasonable response was.
—Oh good. Now she got him maimed because she ran out into traffic upset for reasons unknown to either Itaru or me.
—Oh my God, he got amnesia, which is really the only way any of this can end happily for Itaru.
—If Yuri got divorced and then married Itaru, I would feel like they had a chance for a good life.
—Now I have no idea why she’s moping around so much. When she was all he thought about, she found him repulsive, and now that he doesn’t remember her, she’s bummed.
—Maybe make up your mind next time, MC.
—Notice that at no time does she tell him or anyone else that he got hit by the car because SHE darted in front of it like a dummy.
—No thank you or anything, plus she acts all sullen at him like it’s his fault he got brain damage saving her. He really is better off this way.
—Now she is so concerned about him, she’s letting Sotaro buy her cake, like she’s the one who got hit by a car.
—Oh so now after she lied to him about him ever caring about her, he has decided to accept his memory loss and live a fruitful life. Clearly, she can’t tolerate that and is going to run after him like a banshee to ruin his life some more.
—Oh my God, she gave him ANOTHER concussion.
—Dude is going to die before she figures out what she wants.
—So it ends with her having beaten Itaru’s obsessive love for her (and probably a subdural hematoma) back into him again, so she can be happy wielding complete power over him while continuing to deny him the slightest signs of affection.
—In the life of MC, we call this “Tuesday.”
