Green Green Episode 07

Green Green

"Soaking Wet by the Pool"

I thought this would be the episode where the three amigos would finally participate in a non-sexually deviant manner, but alas, it was not to be. This time it's crossdressing, which probably isn't quite as disgusting as the last episode, but ranks pretty high up there. I guess being in an all-guys school can drive you to these lengths. If you're wondering why they decide to do it, they say it's because they think it will help them understand what a woman feels, but I'm sticking with the latent (perhaps not so latent, actually) homosexuality theory.

Somehow, this episode managed to be mostly about them, instead about Futaba and Yusuke (which I have in the past mentioned is my favorite pairing right now), and how Futaba is dealing with the apparent progress in Yuusuke and Midori's relationship. It's nice to know they haven't given up on this particular thread though, so I hope they go back to it soon.

I haven't mentioned this yet, but I really like the opening and closing themes to this show. The first one is a frenetically bouncy, crazy song and epilitpic-seizure-inducing flood of visuals that emphasizes the fun nature of the show. The closing theme is a nice rock piece with some appealing guitar lines.

I'm disturbed that the last few episodes of this show have featured the three amigos more than Yuusuke and his relationships with the girls, as that should definitely be the main focus of the show. I suppose they should be applauded for trying something different with the layout of this show... but that doesn't change the fact that I think the creators all have serious sexual frustration issues.
