Gotoubun no Hanayome T.V. Media Review Episode 8

by Yumiko

Collection time!

Ichika has declared a challenge upon Fuutarou. He is required to collect the contact information from each sister, or have an embarrassing photo of him released. Getting their info went over rather well, though Nino did play hard to get. She’s willing to exchange information, but only to keep an eye on everyone. Unfortunately, Fuutarou left behind his student handbook with her. Contained with this book is a photo he really doesn’t want anyone to see. He’ll be sure to get it back from her as soon as possible, yet Nino isn’t handing it over so fast. After a bit of acting, he was able to secure it, then dropped it. An old picture of Fuutarou has been exposed, however Nino doesn’t recognize the bad boy in the picture. She’s fallen for the Fuutarou of old, fortunately she didn’t see the whole picture. When Fuutarou’s photo is unfolded an all too familiar face is exposed.

Looks like we’ve got a childhood friend thrown into the mix now. Fuutarou met one of the quintuplets years ago, yet he no longer recognizes the girl in the photo. Those quintuplets have done quite a bit of growing, after all. Likewise, one of the sisters knows Fuutarou, but they have seemingly forgotten. Moreover, the spotlight of this episode has to go to Yotsuba. She has proven herself on two fronts during this one. First, she was able to make Fuutarou’s heart skip a beat. It may have been just an act, but Yotsuba gave quite the false confession. Turns out, she can lie if she really wants to. Additionally, Fuutarou got to witness firsthand where Yotsuba’s loyalties lie. Is she doing her best to skip out on studying, or is she fully committed? Well, there no questioning after what he witnessed. Yotsuba is in it for the long haul.

Moving forward we’re going to be heading into the school trip arc. Now, with that said we’ve only got 4 more episodes to go. Things are already starting to move a bit fast, and I expect them to go even faster as we get to the end. These last 2 episodes didn’t even feature the ending sequence to squeeze in as much content as possible. Hopefully nothing too important gets cut out along the way, but I’ll be on the look out for it. Anyhow, prepare for a test of courage. Enjoy Miku’s croquettes!

Never give up! There have been shows that got 2nd or 3rd seasons that no one ever expected.

I really do hope there will be season two but despite all of that, I highly doubt it since it’s a harem anime and harem getting a sequel is a rare occurrence. Still let’s cross our fingers and hope for the best.

I knew you would love this episode. I’m glad Yotsuba got her time to shine, though for the remainder of the anime she may not get as much spotlight. Still, she’ll be there being as cute as ever. Moreover, the anime is probably only going to adapt about 30ish chapters. So, there’s room for multiple seasons to come. I’ve heard good things about sales and popularity so far, thus let’s hope for great news after season one is done airing.

This was by far by favourite episode mainly because Yotsuba finally got her fair share of screen time and her joke confession caught me off-guard, it was really nice to see how straightforward she is, rejecting the basketball club invitation just because of Fuutarou. This is why I love Yotsuba the most, because she is the girl that would never cheat on you if you’d date her. Overall I’m hyped to see future episdoes, I can’t wait how the story progresses… but I’m mourned by the fact that we won’t get to see the end of this cause the anime ends at 12th episode so I’m assuming it’s not enough for the manga story to be whole in this anime adaptation
