I swear I look like this every Monday

Apparently, even with Rita’s help Team Sakurasou was barely able to keep their deadline. Since I’ve been pulling all-nighter after all-nighter for the past few weeks, I really do sympathise with these guys. I usually end up like Mashiro, with my face getting all intimate with the desk, or like Nanami. Still, it’s really impressive that they’ve managed to pull this off – the design of the game wasn’t perhaps the most complex thing I’ve heard of, but designing and producing all the assets must have been a crap load of work and effort.

This week was also quite big on fanservice, including Mashiro’s extremely sexy neko costume…

… or perhaps not. Well, if you’re dreaming, then at least dream big!

Let us not forget about Nanamin’s glorious adventure in the bathroom! First of all, kids, there’s a reason man invented the lock. Secondly, taking off your underwear when weighing yourself is such a desperate move :P

One of the most interesting, if perhaps subtle developments this week was Sorata admitting to having feelings for Mashiro. I think this is really the first time he admitted this to himself; hopefully he’ll do something productive with this self-realisation.

This scene was so d’aaaaw… until Sorata got an idea for improving the Nyaboron. OK, Sorata, I understand that this was your “EUREKA!” moment, BUT THIS IS NOT HOW YOU SHOULD TREAT A GIRL SLEEPING ON YOUR SHOULDER. *Especially* if you happen to love that girl :P

In the meantime, Misaki-senpai is still out of luck. Ignored by Jin, who prefers to sweet-talk the pretty ladies of the Art Division… Well, nothing out of the ordinary, right?

So, this is the legendary Fuuka-chan, Jin’s first girlfriend? Man, she’s almost like a clone of Misaki, only slightly older. Somehow, I am not surprised to learn that Jin has valued Misaki for a long time now and slept with Fuuka because he doesn’t want to hurt Misaki and Fuuka’s next best thing, being an almost identical copy.

WHAT. THE. HELL. I care about a girl, so I’ll fuck her older sister? WHAT KIND OF PHILOSOPHY IS THIS? oO What this is I don’t even…

Luckily, Jin rejects Fuuka’s joke/offer about getting back together, which puts Misaki once again into genki mood – she realises that she still has a chance. Baka Senpai, you’ve always had a chance, but at least your confidence is up once more, so I won’t complain. Is it only me who finds Misaki x Jin pairing the most interesting one?

And then there’s Rita, who apart from planning to snatch Mashiro away, has laid her eyes on Akasaka, going even as far as becoming a permanent resident of his server room, much to Maid-chan’s dismay. Poor Ryuunosuke – many people would kill for such a chance, and yet his gynophobia is strong enough to actually make him go to school, which seems a more peaceful place than Sakurasou at the moment.

Of course, Mashiro being Mashiro, wears no clothes underneath her costume. Luckily, she is a quick learner and she managed to grasp the simple truth behind Misaki’s “NO PANTSU NO LAIFU” :D Ya know what, they should start some kind of Church of Pantsu… I’m sure it would soon become the largest religious institution in the world!

Face it, you’ll never be told to spend the night with Mashiro just like that T-T

And so, the tension rises as we close in on the grand finale… What, this isn’t even the middle of the series? YOU ARE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME. There are still *13* episodes to go. THIRTEEN. Let’s just hope that they have the content to fill them with, but I’m cautiously optimistic – Sakurasou has been a series full of surprises.
