Definitely one of the best comedy series this season. Well, other people may argue Barakamon but seeing that I didn’t watch that series, Nozaki-kun is a winner for me. And I’m honestly hoping for a continuation, if anything, just to see how Chiyo’s affections for Nozaki would reach him.
As far as episodes go however, I’d still prefer episode 11. Just because of Chiyo’s adorable moments…
Well, the final episode did have its merits. It managed to set up our pairs (except probably for Mikorin) and revealed to us just what the fuck Chiyo sees in Nozaki…
Nozaki may indeed be one of those gullible men, immune to affection, with his virginity protection level on the scale of manga(ka) but after seeing how Chiyo was swayed by his kindness, I give up.
As the episode title says, “If This Feeling Isn’t Love, Then There Is No Love At All”. Nozaki may be one fucked up dude but we all are rooting for Chiyo to reach him.
On to the cast:
Most of the guys involved in this series are pros so let’s skip them and head on to Ari Ozawa.
Now she is quite the newbie, landing on mostly minor roles with the exception of her character, Chiyo, being her first main casting. And boy did she give her justice!
Chiyo is simply adorableand the way Ari Ozawa voices her moe moments and her lolwut expressions are really good. I would often compare her standing on par with the five cast members of Hanayamata. That show may be purely moeblob but Chiyo manages to establish her own reputation (in my book), and that’s a good sign. I do hope she gets more exposure and probably, like Amamiya Sora, get involved in roles that goes beyond the stereotype.
