We've already seen Rihoko naked, she's not even close to fat or chubby. When she was pinching her sides, she barely got a finger full of flesh. It's just we asians have a strict idea as what's thin and what's fat, can't say that I'm not annoyed with being apart of such an uptight culture. Besides Rihoko have some delicious T&A going so it'll be unusual for her to be anorexic.

I guess that even an omnibus format can't save you from "I'm more interested in the side characters" syndrome.

Hiba had gotten the odd comment throughout the series... but ep 18 let her romp a bit. She's a lot of fun.

As for Rihokko (or at least perceptions in various forums of her)... I'm seeing many posts operating under the 'reality distortion' that the wide-spread obesity in the US is generating. No, she isn't "fat" but she definitely doesn't want to lose control of the situation. She does have a problem with knowing when to say 'enough' in regard to food.

Wait wait wait wait wait. Hold your horses.

Assuming that Amagami and Kimikiss don't take place in the same universe (I always entertained the possibility that they did), Ruriko and Manaka either have identical twins in another town, or it's a different universe and they're the multiversal constants.

What I'm rambling about is this.

Top of the page.

Same last names, same voice actors even. Only now they're known as Manami and Kaoruko. I know I'm probably not the first person to notice this, and my enthusiasm suggests that I have only recently discovered it, but as long as the discussion was on them, I figured eh, why not?

Wow I can definately see the similarities.

I love her as well. She doesn't speak much but she always hits the right spots. I like her chara design and her voice, too.

Watched ep. 18 now as well (damn you, curiosity )
Just wanted to see if Rihoko would change - but no, she didn't. Same phlegmatic Rihoko as before, so it's no wonder we have the first snow already and nothing whatsoever happened. He was already farther with the other girls now. (Ok, can't blame him - the other girls were much more interesting )
Rihoko's two tea club senpai at least try to help her out, but don't succeed there.

All in all, also this is a quite uneventful episode. Rihoko shows no progress, nothing really happens. Only thing is that we see that already as a kid, Rihoko was always hungry
I have to say that Rihoko's arc is the most boring arc yet, with the most boring girl. 6/10

You can read JP Amagami wiki. So, you can find more supporting points and the pop cultural reference.

Amagami is definitely one of those stories where the female side characters are as appealing, if not more so, than the main heroines...

Exactly. She knows the perfect words to use to get the point, and joke, across.

Of course, part of the appeal of the side characters is that they don't need to go through the degrading experiences that seem to turn Junichi on.

I liked this episode. Rihoko is a really cute character and I can't help but root for her. I like how nearly everybody is trying to set these two up. I liked the flashbacks again, and the present scene was cute. I was kinda surprised to see the founders festival in the second episode. It's a nice change.

7/10.

People, Rihoko is "chubby" in that her bust and hip are much larger than the average body figure. That is why while she is relatively thin, she is going on a diet.
