Ai Yori Aoshi Episode 05

Ai Yori Aoshi

"Old Friend"

Up until now, at least AYA had its relative lack of fanservice going for it, but this episode takes a dramatic turn for the worse, going all out with gratuitous, stupid fanservice. I love when a scene is framed so that the screen focuses only on the lower (breasts down) part of a speaking female character.

Ugh, what the heck are they thinking with that twangy crappy music for Tina's theme. I swear to god.

Random strangers deciding to live with the main male and female, a hallmark of any show of this type. Though it's not entirely formulaic! In this episode, we get two female introductions, instead of just one. (I guess the characters weren't interesting enough to warrant their own episodes.)

In case you couldn't tell, I'm not a very big Tina fan. She has a really boring character design, terrible theme music, bad greeting, hyena laugh and a permanent cat tooth thing.

And, seriously, who grabs a woman's breasts in greetings?
