With a successful outing at Comima, Ryou is back to hanging out with his friends and fills them in a bit about it. But that also means that he gets to hear what they’ve been up to, which is a nice little montage sequence of manliness early on. For Ryou, he’s doubly interested because he can see it as places and events where lots of guys can be viewed in his particular way, which kind of bothers the others to some degree – especially Nakamura on discovering the doujin that Ryou picked up that looks like him. This actually does come up later, which is amusing, as there’s a discussion about how money is spent. Bringing a little female perspective into it all works nicely too as a change of pace for things. You do feel for Nakamura as he’s really a third wheel in all of this and doesn’t know how to deal with it.
While I might have expected a bit more fallout from Nakamura’s discovery, what we get is pretty good as it shows that he does understand his friend and even when thrown by it he handles it well. There’s a lot to like in seeing the guys hang out and how that all unfolds and just the general dynamic between them. The show continues to work well for me even though I keep expecting bigger or wackier gags along the way. While Ryou continues to have his visions of how he views the world, the series keeps itself mostly grounded and a good bit of fun.
