Special A episode 4

maybe i am in love with my brother?

Well, that was another mess of an episode. Nothing about it flowed at all and it just all felt completely unnatural. A new character is introduced as well, which is Kei’s brother Sui. Basically, the story was that Hikari went to see Kei’s father at his amazingly giant house, but instead finds Kei’s brother calling some tutor person an old hag. Stupid as Hikari is she runs up the stairs towards the kid not even having met him once and starts screaming about being polite (well there’s irony for you), but he closes the door on her like any normal person would only to have her kick it down. Now we have a big scene skip that was because of her pride and all as compensation for her kicking down the door she decides to tutor the kid. It turns out that he is the only good part of the episode (until the end when he becomes annoying like everyone else) because he badmouths everyone. Hikari and Kei start a dragonfly competition out of random and of course Kei wins, then Sui confesses to his brother that he really hates him, but we soon find out it’s only because he knows he can never be as good as Kei. A whole bunch of other stupid stuff happens and Hikari ends up hitting her head and Sui ends up carrying her halfway home only to have him collapse from the weight and she falls right on top of him. I think there should be some sort of child labour laws about that.

The most ridiculous scene follows after, which is that Kei comes running out of the woods worrying over Hikari’s health (mind you, she fell on top of Sui who already collapsed). I understand that Kei is a very intelligent person, but I don’t think it’s really possible for him to have a sixth sense fro when people are hurt because how did he possibly know that Hikari was injured? Anyway, Sui ends up betraying his cool character for someone who is obsessed with his brother; it really is a shame. Did anyone else notice that in Sui’s room he had a Dr. Seuss book on the shelf, which I’m pretty sure in specific was the “Cat in the Hat”, that was the probably the only entertaining thing in this episode. Something else I noticed while watching was that the Special A students are always eating! I don’t think there has been an episode yet where they haven’t been eating at some time or another and from the preview what I can tell is that they’ll be eating some more and then they’ll find out about some new competition where Hikari and Kei can challenge there skills against each other, how interesting…
