On the train on the way to Kyoto, Tadano He is responsible for checking that everyone is present and going through each group's seats, being the one that worries him the most alongside Komi Katou Mikuni Y Sasaki AyamiWith whom comic He had no previous interactions. but Katou Y sasaki want to fulfill their mission to have an unforgettable school trip comic.
When you get off the train your sightseeing tour is now by bus where the tour guide Tenjouin Ryouko, who will tell you about the different tourist sights that you will pass. However, he doesn't get much attention from the class except for Tadano Y comic. what reminds you Why did you want to be a tour guide? Taking an interest in the two, he realizes they don't belong with the group and decides to look for them, only to find them in a special moment.
Now at the inn, they decide who shares the rooms and then call them to bathe. comic Y Agari You are nervous and ashamed to have to undress in front of others, but with the moral support of a mine in the end they do. While the boys end up getting more and more united.
At night, the girls and Najimi They have a pillow fight, the last one standing wins the right to choose where to sleep, so they look forward to doing it next door comic. comic also joins the fight, but the finale ends in between Najimi Y yamaibut the nearby teacher's warning to check if they slept makes them all rush to bed to pretend they slept.
New alliance of characters
in the Komi-san cannot communicate 2 - Three new female characters appeared in Chapter 8, although two of them will obviously have a much greater significance on the school trip. I mean Katou Y sasaki.
Of course, having barely attended the episode, I can't say much about their personalities, but with the little that is shown, none of them seem difficult to handle. Moreover, despite the fact that they have shown some discomfort when they are next door comicthat she doesn't appear bad or that they see her as a "goddess" who they are not allowed to approach, I just think they managed to demonstrate the problem by starting a conversation with someone they just met .
Right now I like both characters, but we'll have to wait a bit to see how they've been adapted into anime. For the same reason, I'll wait until they have more exposure to talk about them, including theirs seiyuus listen before confirming something.
As for the third Ryoukoa simple guide, contributed nothing to the future development of the character of comic, since he didn't interact with her enough to be on her friends list. He simply said a sentence that gradually becomes more prescient. To be honest, I can feel that Ryouko could have more impact on the development of comicnot enough to become a key figure, but enough to be on the list.
Of course, the only way I see that both have interactions is with Tadano of the agent. For example, that something has attracted attention comic, Ryouko He approached to try to explain but comic had the same reaction as always, a bit nervous about what was affected Ryouko and created an uncomfortable atmosphere, which was brightened thanks Tadano.
But since the school field trip arc is just beginning, it may be Ryouko have a different appearance in the future.
interactions between girls
I won't deny it, I appreciate that fan service shown in Komi-san cannot communicate 2 – Chapter 8. Even if this anime isn't one Echi or any other that requires a constant fan serviceI think they have fulfilled their mission very well. Starting with the silhouette of Agaria bit of a mine (despite being "flat" it's still one of my favorites in terms of design/personality), and of course the camera angles to show different moments of the bathroom comic. All without having to show additional skin.
So I don't think the presence of the towels can be considered "censorship". And even less do I think it's "eliminated" on the Blu-ray.Komi-san cannot communicate 2“. In fact, if they did, it would seem to me completely unnecessary and that it "crops" the essence of the anime itself. Before that, there were already many other episodes in which they could show fan service with a touch of Echi one way or another and it wouldn't impact enough to add genre to anime. But they didn't, and I appreciate that.
Now, in addition to the interactions in the bathrooms, there was also the pillow fight. Being a big event, a bit cliche in that situation, but perfect for showing confidence comic She has won with her friends throughout the anime. Of course I would have liked to see more expressions comic in that moment and not a little smile. Maybe a laugh with the others as they pretended to sleep.
Speaking of which, by the way fan serviceI can't miss this BL the boys. Too direct for my taste, but due to the short screentime I find it perfectly balanced as it should be.
