After three episodes aired I realized that this anime is somehow lacking of Amagami didn’t. I can’t really tell what it is but one thing I’m really sure is I’m mostly hooked to this show for its fanservice (or fetish?) while the story doesn’t really attract me. I’m not sure how it is in the game so it’s hard to put the blame whether to the original story or the bad anime adaptation.
Looking back at the aired episodes I must say that I’m disappointed that Kazuya joined the photography club instead of the photo club. If I was him I’d join the photo club not because out of sympathy but I think the photo club is more philosophically aligned with photography itself. The photography club on the other hand looks like they are ‘using’ photography as a tool to please themselves rather than doing the actual photography.
Although Kazuya seems to be having more “shutter chance” opportunities since he joined the club I found none of them could be attributed to the club assisting him. In fact it looks like the club is more interested in taking advantage of his connections and luck with the girls instead of actually helping to find his subjects. The only good thing about him joining them is now he knows the club’s “evil strategies” and with that knowledge he could stop them or protect the girls from fallen victim to the club.
So far he has been true to his intention and has never took pictures to that could make him a pervert. Three episodes has passed but I feel this show is kind of slow in introducing the characters so I’m not sure how will they (the studio) will handle that before the season ends. Also I’m still waiting for something that I could learn about photography from this show, not really about the details but some tips and tricks would do it.
A little about episode 03, as you can see above Kazuya and Nonoka ‘kissed’ from an ‘accident’. With that I expect him to kiss every other girl. I’m not sure though how is Niimi going to react to this because it looks like she is the one who wants to keep him to herself the most. This episode also introduced us to Rina Yunoki at a deeper level but I don’t know how is she going to become a photography subject, unless Kazuya is going to see her in her swimsuit again. And remember in the episode 02 where Kazuya caught Muroto during her “illicit entry” into school? I didn’t really expect he would use that to ‘blackmail’ her into becoming his photography subject though I somehow could see that coming. However even more surprising is she submitted to his ‘pressure’. She proves to be a very good subject too and managed to do sexy poses almost naturally, as if she was prepared to do that. Just look at the screenshots below and you’ll understand what I say.
