Annotated Anime: Recently, My Sister is Unusual Episode 11

The dreaded hot springs episode

It's finally happened -- the dreaded hot springs episode. I was thinking perhaps we'd be able to get by without it, but in the end it wasn't as offensive as it could have been. In fact, it was pretty tame as far as ImoCho's standards go. Mitsuki ends up winning a set of hot spring vacation trips after having Hiyori rig a contest, and the entire main cast of characters packs up and goes to spend the weekend there. I mean everyone -- even Neko, who still seems as though she's scheming, but I can't figure out for what purpose. Of course, even though Mitsuki invited everyone along, she's passive aggressive about how everyone came along. Why'd you invite them then, you dingus?

Everyone just wants to have a good time, but all Mitsuki and Hiyori are concerned with is how to make Big Brother fall for them. Well, Mitsuki is at least indirectly trying to have some fun, but when Yukina enters the picture, Hiyori gets jealous. Of course. And in this episode, I can see where the jealousy stems from, especially since Yukina and Yuuya end up in the bath together later on in the episode, where Yukina starts to make her move. I've only been waiting for her to drop this coy act ever since she showed up. 

Yukina "mistakenly" ends up walking into the bath while Yuuya is in there, and of course he sees her fully naked. They have a little heart to heart about why she felt it necessary to change from the tomboyish kendo fighter to the girly, "graceful" Yukina we know today. Because you know girls, you can't be yourself to get a man. You have to completely reinvent yourself from the ground up in order to appeal to the opposite sex, or else you'll stay completely invisible to them for the rest of your life. That's Yukina's story, anyway. She "confesses" to Yuuya that's why she's different, and wouldn't you know it, she "slips" and falls right into Yuuya's arms, naked and all. Just as Mitsuki walks in. I think you know where this is going. 

Mitsuki makes an ass of herself as she is wont to do, and makes it painfully obvious to Yukina and Yuuya that she's just a big old jealous mess. Oh, and we get to see a glimpse of her latest set of "scary panties," which thankfully aren't the bizarre chrome bar we thought we were gonna get from now on. The episode even ends up with a declaration from Yukina that she's not gonna give up. So she's definitely interested in Yuuya. Called it. I mean, you'd have to be dense not to think that, but I suppose I was just waiting on the show to spell it out explicitly before commenting further. [Editor's Note: Also, Yukina stole Mitsuki's delicious snack right out of her hands! Who does that?]

There are only a couple episodes left, and it seems as though the entire second half of the series has been squandering precious plot development for incidental character interaction. I'm going to go ahead and call it now that a second season will show up soon, especially given the fact that the live-action film actually exists. I don't know if there'll be a conclusion, but I'm going to sigh a sigh of relief when I'm done covering this each week. It's maddening, and Mitsuki grates on the nerves. I never thought I'd say this, but I really miss its audacity.
