You know, the scene that got me this episode was when the condom fell out of his pocket. The whole situation could have ended with laughs all around if he came out with it earlier.
"Hey, what did my brother say to you?"
"Nothing, he just gave me this condom."
"I know. That's Ryuusuke all over, huh?"
Oh yeah, it would have been awkward, but misunderstandings and greater awkwardness would have been averted.
SEELE and Shinji needed to hang out with Sakurai more.
And I'm not blaming Koyuki. It's not easy to come out with stuff straight away and take the punishment now as I make it sound. If it was, SEELE wouldn't have gone to all that effort with Instrumentality.
That's why I like this new kid, Sakurai. Sakurai is honest. He doesn't hide things, he doesn't lie. He's clearly not stupid and he knows what he gets himself into, but he only has one face and it speaks the truth. I like Sakurai, he's a good guy. If he was in NGE, he'd have been killed off in ten minutes before anyone was tainted by his good influence.
Anyway, back to Beck. Koyuki's starting to get something to sing about, isn't he? What with the school's silent treatment and his first crush getting a boyfriend. I'm glad he and Ryuusuke made up, and I like how that was done. Simply and realistically.
Well, back to work.
