To Love Ru Pinkness 08 - The Cafe of Side Characters

An episode with no Yami or Mea, and very little Momo? As much as Darkness knows where the focal point of the season is, it's still finding time to spread the focus around to everyone fairly evenly. Having Rin, one of Saki's friends, play a major role in an episode is not something I would've seen coming even back in Motto. Much less with Mikan. Mikan's role in things since episode 00 has been kind of marginalized, but this episode should make up for it. There wasn't even that much fanservice, and what there was mostly felt incidental to the ponderous mood that overtook much of the atmosphere.

Now, if there was going to be an episode based on side characters, I would've preferred one about Mio, but that's only because I like Chiemi Chiba's voice. The cafe where she and Risa worked was a nice place. I do like how, even though Darkness feels a bit like a long epilogue after the pool confession, the aftereffects are being explored pretty thoughtfully. I know it's a cliche, but Rito being a "nice guy" is a fine reason for all these feelings to be storming around. Every girl sees something differently, and has their own reasons, and that includes Mikan. Sibling relationships seem to be a big theme of this season in general.

Oh, and that final shot of a pregnant Yui was... yeah, great little bonus there. Shots like that, even if they're purely in a character's imagination, are a-okay with me.

So, about the next episode... uh-oh. I think Mea may have succeeded. Things are about to go horribly right.

Man, I hope she ends up in the harem. Thing is: I do remember her performing the "crotch take down". That was similar to what the mind-controlled Mikan did to Rito back in Eps 4.

would you guys say that this season of To love Ru is up to par with the previous ones or no? Or is it too early to be asking that

OH... this one is hotter than the other two.

It's no longer random silliness. Instead, there's a purpose!! XD

Out of everything that has happened thus far, I would like to see what would happen if Celine suddenly becomes a teen or a young adult and go after Rito, even if this sudden transformation only lasts for a day.

^ Well, I will it would be interesting.
But they(Rito and Celine) give off more of a father and daughter feeling or brother and sister. So I wonder if people would think of it as weird, even if she took the of a teen or a young adult.

That was a good one. I think the show is even better without Rito there and just being talked about.

Clearly better than the first season (which was nice, but maybe a bit bland overall) and still somewhat better than Motto (which was great).

Now *that's* a good idea, if I ever heard one

Nice episode
I really like how they blended those two chapters together, seemed pretty fluid
Not to mention I got my Yui and Rin goodness in one go

The heck is Momo doing?? As a concubine, as she herself stated she wishes to be, why care if Rito is doing it consciously or not? Just take advantage of favorable situation already!

They are, but that's the selling point of loli tits. On the other hand, buttshots, require some maturity to be attractive

Blasphemy. Yami's got the best ass of the series. And she's quite well endowed in that area, as shown in the Darkness manga. She's got slender ankles, yet rather supple hips and curvy waist. The recipe for a nice ass.

In other news. Yami's not a loli, nice try.
