Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka - 04

MINATO!!!!!!!!!!!! <33

The episode starts off with Junichi's parents combating(?) a giant Kraken thing in a submarine. Uber random, yes I know.

A quick transition, and we're now looking at Junichi and Yuuhi coming to school together, and desperately trying to clear up the 'misconceptions' that other people were having. They are then invited to a home party by Karen, which everyone readily accepts except Junichi, who only goes after being persuaded by his sister Minato, who in turn was persuaded by Karen after school.

Yuuhi, Junichi and Minato show up at a grand cruise liner, meeting up with several of their classmates, and seeing some famous faces as well. They are greeted by a very well dressed Karen, and gets questioned about her dress when she called the rest to be in 'casual wear'. She replies by saying that her dress is her casual wear, and the girls go off on their own girls' paradise, choosing clothes and having girls' talk.

Meanwhile, the guys have changed into formal suits, and are clearly not enjoying themselves, probably except the teacher of course. It is then when Minato appears (OMG) with probably the best dress I've seen so far. The other girls appear, with less revealing (or if any at all) cleavage, which causes Junichi to give a sigh of disappointment, ending up receiving some resentment from the rest of the girls. Junichi continues to look at Minato's big jugs. (Damn, they're big.) He knows that it's wrong (SHE'S HIS SISTER) and starts to fight his inner demons, who persuades him to give in to the dark side. He does not lose to his temptation though, and goes over to Minato to advice her on wearing something over her shoulders to cover her boobies, and that they should not be shown to other guys (so showing it to him is okay?).

In the ladies' room, the girls tease Minato about how Junichi was constantly looking only at Minato, receiving a remark from Yuuhi saying how even the great Geno Killer has a strong sister complex.

They walk back to the hall, where Yuuhi and Minato meet a few seasick cooks and a Chef. They succumb to the seasickness, and the two heroines offer to help. However, Yuuhi once again ends up blowing things up, and Minato steps in to save the day.

Back in the hall, Karen shows displeasure about the late arrival of food, and declares that she would keep the show running until the food arrives. She starts making jokes, obviously not well received by the guests.

Minato, together with Mitsuki and Mikoto (I think.. someone please clarify) are busy with work in the kitchen. Suddenly, the radio girl (called Nago-nago by Mikoto, real name is Nagomi) brings in a ridiculously big fish, which Minato immediately recognises as the 'black diamond of the sea', Pacific bluefin tuna. (Yum, tuna.) This certainly raises some questions, like how she caught it, but Nagomi mentions that it is best not to ask any questions. This apparently solves the party menu issue.

The guests are already tired of Karen's jokes, and on the other corner of the room, a few guys are trying to hit on Yuuhi, going as far as to lay their hands on her. This is not well received by her, and reprimands the guy on how to properly drink tea, correcting his mistakes along the way.

Finally, food is ready and the guests are definitely relieved to spared from any more of Karen's horribly lame jokes. The three girls (without Minato) bring in the food, and Minato does a live sashimi making demonstration (I love TNK for providing the pantsu shot as well). Karen, obviously depressed by the fact that her party was taken over by a mere tuna fish, initiates Plan D.

Junichi's parents are still fighting the Kraken, firing torpedoes and attacking it with spears. Back in the boat, a Mini-Kraken appears, and seeing through the plan, Karen's classmates give their sincere sign of pity, except for Yuuhi who really believes that the Mini-Kraken is real. More mishaps happen, and the ship's bursting into flames. Everyone evacuate except for Minato and Yuuhi, and Junichi returns into the ship to find them. He finds Minato first, and hugs her in relief, with Minato clearly embarrassed by it. He then goes to find Yuuhi after learning that she's still trapped inside, Minato looking at him go.

He finds Yuuhi, alone and wet from the sprinklers, and rushes over, only to be hugged back by a crying Yuuhi. After a romantic few seconds, they move on to find the exit. In another part of the ship, Minato is saved from a fire by Nagomi, who uses her magic (what?) to extinguish the flames.

Everyone's back safe and sound, and Junichi and Yuuhi arrive together, much to the relief of Minato.

The next day at school, everyone thanks Karen for how much fun they had. Karen, clearly thankful of their positive attitude and not resenting her at all for the dangers, invites them to her hot spring resort, and this time round they clearly don't look like they are excited about it.

Got to see a few very cute moments of Yuuhi, as well as some sister complex moments, so a possible Minato x Junichi x Yuuhi in the future? Can't wait to see it will turn out. I thought that the Kraken would be appearing at the end of the episode, maybe attacking the boat or something, then Junichi's parents coming to save everyone and parents and children meet. But they went along a more standard plot, so maybe they're saving it for later episodes. I am very sure one day, the scenes between Junichi's parents and himself will converge. Enjoyed this episode alot, as usual.

And is it me or did they change the OP sequence?
