Winter Watch: Recorder and Randsell #10

White Day is the day guys give girls gifts in return for the chocolates you received on Valentine's Day. It is also the day Atsushi gives out "cards".

Welcome to Winter Watch, a look at the latest anime season. White Day is upon us, and the male lead of Recorder and Randsell is in the spirit of gift-giving. With some help from his sister of course!

Atsushi didn&squot;t understand: "Get her a card".
Atsushi didn't understand: "Get her a card".

White Day (according to the Anime Vice database): "a holiday on March 14th where a boy must return the favor to the girl that gave him chocolate on Valentine's Day." Is it sad if your older sister makes the candy you will give in return for the chocolate you got on Valentine's Day? Atsushidoesn't think so since he makes Atsumi do all of the work for him. After that, he is accused of being a pedophile (again) because he's handing out gifts to little girls. It was humorous that Hina-chan got a trading card as her gift in return for the awful-looking chocolate she gave Atsushi though!

There are some inconsistencies in this episode I would like to address. Futami Moriyamawas originally characterized as a shy teacher who is intimidated by men and older-looking children. When did she become the protagonist of a bad horror movie?! Also, why are Tetsuya and Takumi so dedicated to take things from Atsushi if they are his friends?

Verdict

Could we stop with the child molester jokes already? There are so many comedy situations Atsushi and Atsumi could be set in. You don't have to resort to the same thing over and over again! Have Atsushi buy alcohol for Take. Forcefully enroll Atsumi in elementary school. Make Asushi go on a date with Sayo without him realizing it's a romantic endeavor. So much potential! Ugh!

Tetsuya and Takumi are simply jealous of Atsushi because all the girls like him. All the girls wanted to give him chocolate for Valentine's Day. If he were to properly reciprocate, they would end up liking him even more.
