I really hope that Gojou is getting paid for all this and if not, he should definitely think about charging people for his services. If you think about it, all the money he has to spend on buy supplies to make these cosplay outfits, all the makeup, wigs etc. You know without a doubt that Gojou is at a serious net loss, but since Gojou-kun is a sincere person who enjoys making other people (Marin, Shinju and Sajuna) happy by helping them fulfill their cosplaying desires. You know that making a profit is the last thing on his mind.
I’m going to skip over Marin this blog because we all know what she’s about. Marin has already revealed everything about herself. Episode nine didn’t offer anything new with regards to her, but for everyone else, it was a different story. Episode nine saw us focus on Shinju.
I’ve always thought that Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru was one weird anime, I don’t think anyone would disagree with that. That being said, moments like the one in episode nine is always nice because you see a different side to the cosplay world. It gives people who don’t think too highly of themselves a chance to be praised by others through cosplay. Which is something Shinju wants.
You can tell that she too wanted to be involved, Shinju wanted to follow in the footsteps of her sister Sajuna. Shinju wanted to be accepted her sister and she thought the only way to achieve this goal was to cosplay like Sajuna. Little did Shinju know that her sister loved and accepted her for who she was. But hey cosplaying together is always a fun time, am I right?
I also love how, again, Gojou-kun is showing everyone how to act like a true lady’s man. Always willing to help everyone out. Even when he’s put in awkward situations, Gojou shows how it’s supposed to be done. Man, if I had a friend like Gojou-kun that would make my day because he’s too sincere and too kind. You cannot help but root for the guy.
With regards to the enjoyment factor, I thought episode nine was a great episode because it offered something a little different for once without deviating too far from the premise. 8/10.
