RikeKoi | Episode Two and Three: Subpar.


Okay, I will be the first one to say, episodes two and three of Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shoumei shitemita. Heart (RikeKoi), were subpar. Let me tell you about it.

In a way I thought episode two and three were a little all over the place (which is something I will always complain about generally). That was my biggest issue I had with both episodes in fact. In short, episodes two and three of Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shoumei shitemita. Heart were a little too chaotic for my liking. There simply was too much happening for me to really enjoy either episode.

Apart from character development, there wasn’t really much that I found myself enjoying. Do I enjoy watching our main cast? Yes. However, episodes two and three didn’t really show them off too well to be completely honest. Both episodes felt like they were just thrown in there ‘just because’. Maybe that goes down to both episodes feeling a bit meh, as mentioned from the title of today’s blog. Episodes two and three were subpar in my opinion.

Amongst the chaos, there were a few highlights for me, in the form of our characters. Even though I thought they felt a little out of place, I definitely felt was that we’re definitely seeing a level of growth between Himuro and Yukimura. Well I think anyway. Honestly, you can never really tell because they’re ‘science-types’ so they live and die on the science behind things. Yes they’re conducting an ongoing experiment to determine whether or not they love each other. But you can tell that this is the only real way that they can express their feelings towards one another.

Whenever they reach a conclusion that could suggest that they do not have feelings for one another. They do everything in their power to find other methods or theories that would suggest otherwise. Which then requires the two of them to continue to conduct further experiments until they reach their desired outcome, whatever they maybe. It’s one weird way to express their affection for one another, but hey, their relationship (if you can call it that) is a very quirky one, and is one I can definitely get behind.

I also love how we’re slowly starting to see something out of Ibarada and Inukai. I mean, it isn’t something that caught me off guard. It’s something you’d expect from a romcom. Relationships that start from childhood friendships have always been things I’ve enjoyed watching. Which is seems to be the case here with Ibarada and Inukai. Do I expect some type of relationship to come out of this? No, I expect it to follow along the same lines as Himuro and Yukimura.

But yeah, I expected a better showing is all.
