I actually waited for almost two weeks before I began writing this. I know for a fact that I need to review this episode one more time before I can say anything about it. But upon a second watch, my laughter did not wane and my enthusiasm stayed strong.
My God, my God, where can I find a girl like her? She may not be “Jessie’s Girl” but where can I find a woman like that?

I have been watching Uraboku. I have to admit that I…I’m…hooked. Hamacchatta~. But I’m not gay, no way. Yes, I’m in a state of self-denial, but you can’t hide your head in the sand forever. So, I hereby came to have made a tough decision to come out.

OK, maybe you wouldn’t. As for me, everything has come to a boiling point and the awkwardness of all the characters, especially female characters, are just too funny for me not to laugh.
Yamada (when do we get to know her first name) is finally caving in and she realizes that she’s in love with Kosuda (hurray for us plain-looking guys) and the ikemen doesn’t seem to shake her conviction. I’ll admit, I was hoping that she gets swayed, at least a little, which would make more sense in the dramatic term, but hey, this is a niche comedy aimed for guys like us; OF COURSE she can’t be swayed! It lessen the dramatic value but it becomes a feel good episode.
Now we have not 1 but 3-ero gods! Now that’s funny! So Kinjo girl tries to seduce Kosuda, but she’s super freaked out about having to really try to come-on to someone, that’s freaking hilarious and it was pure comedy gold.
The predatory Yamada and the herbevore Kosuda is so funny and yet so much inspiring, at least to the niche folks like us. There’s a ton of great comedic timing and sexual innuendo goodness that I hope you don’t miss it!
Don’t forget to respect Yamada’s super powerful and accurate lip reading!!!
OK yeah, despite my rant, there are shows this season that I do like without finding any major negative flaws. It may be due to personal preference or maybe I’m just right? Who knows? Let’s get to these:

Warning: No pics – pics helped taking down our server too many times in the past 2 weeks!
Now, I’m sure I spelled something wrong in the title and therefore, nobody will find this one and read it. So, I’m just going to pretend that nobody reads this and just stop restraining myself. OK? Here we go:

Is virginity a character flaw?
Traditionally in Japan young girls were assumed to be maidens, to the point where the terms were at times used interchangeably. Perhaps in today’s sex-positive, metropolitan world, it’s assumed that youngsters of both genders will fool around.
In that light, B gata H kei appears to be something of a deconstruction of high schoolers’ attitudes towards sex. The details strain credulity (aiming for 100 casual sex partners in high school? Really?) but the overall idea that impressionable and insecure teens feel obligated to put on airs is dead on. It’s interesting that so much of the main character’s insecurities rest on the gross physical details of her anatomy, but what better symbol for the teenaged preoccupation with sex?
