Da Capo Episode 03

Da Capo

"It's Bananas!"

I was a little worried by the title of the episode, and it turns out that my worries were founded in a little thing called reality.

In this episode, the weirdness level of this show is turned up a notch as Miharu is critically injured in an accident, but is replaced by a robot that looks and acts exactly like her (made by her father, apparently). The only difference is that the robot Miharu is still taking time to learn what it means to be human.

Asakura is strung along to help her, which basically runs them through a bunch of gags. For example, Asakura has to wind Miharu, which she finds "ticklish" (draw your own conclusions). Also, there's Miharu's obsession with bananas, which leads to a whole bunch of innuendo, bad jokes, and poor taste. Actually, it's so absurd it's kind of funny.

The episode ends with a little bit more seriousness, but I can only assume that this whole plot thread won't be carried on from here on out.

As ridiculous as this episode was, it was actually fairly entertaining (in a perverted, what the hell is going on, sort of way).

Rating: B+
