Just before the school festival uzaki Looking for sakurai to try to convince him to attend as he assumed he would stay home for the three days of the festival to take the opportunity that they were playing. Exactly as I thought sakurai he had been aiming to get ahead in all the games he had bought lately so he saw that he couldn’t convince him uzaki He suggests playing the three days together in the department sakurai and she prepared the food for him. It’s when a tired sakaki who tells them he helped the festival organizing committee and reveals that there will be a raffle where they could win a console that uzaki want. That’s why sakurai decide to help uzaki with the raffle, participation in the festival.

at the festival uzaki Y sakurai They wander from stall to stall to get hold of the stamps that stand a chance in the raffle. As they went on, they came across the divination of the Paranormal Research Clubthat I recommended sakaki for your stamp. So they both decide to start their own business. Once inside, still with doubts about what they want to know about their fortune, they are stopped by the fortune teller, who tells them that their reading is about love, so they both get out, but are greeted by the other members of the group held up group. Association. In the end, you listen to its reading and you know that both have excellent compatibility.

Two days after the prophecy sakurai he’s still thinking about it, so he’s having a hard time seeing the face uzaki, even though she is at his apartment preparing his food.

sacrifices for the team

in the Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! Double – In Chapter 3 there is more than one moment where I identify with the characters, mostly with sakurai Y sakaki. start with sakurai, just like him, I would have preferred to use the “days off” in my own vices, especially when I don’t have anything that compels me to go to the festival. However, I would have done the same to him at the sight uzaki so attracted by the raffle prize. I liked that myself as they showed even more of the personality of sakurai plus, of course, another key moment that could have raised a flag.

Of course, to be honest, I would only make this “sacrifice” for a friend if I was interested in it for some reason. Like exactly what you did sakakihelp out the festival committee just so I get a chance to bring it uzaki Y sakurai to have their compatibility read. That’s why I identified with it sakaki and his ‘knight’ sacrifice. Although I wouldn’t deny that I would have liked to see a better reward for this one who ended up being completely tired and unable to enjoy the main event. And to bring together with my lust unnecessarily Me Y sakaki he hoped that at least she would tell him everything that had happened in person and not over the phone.

I enjoyed seeing this aspect of the characters as I think it will help their development and background in the future. Not only by the protagonists for obvious reasons, but also by supporting characters like sakaki.

emotional bias

Technically having the fortune teller as the main theme in almost everything Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! Double – Chapter 3, the episode would obviously have some progress in the relationship of the protagonists. Something, that previous chapters also have their touch (with uzaki Y sakurai sleeping together and cuddling in college).

Now imagining the reaction of sakuraithat from uzaki I didn’t expect it like that. As I initially assumed that she would be pleased, but also that she would be a little embarrassed to show a more feminine side in the noise kuhai. And not that I would end up distorting the words to end up concluding that sakurai can’t live without her. At least not in this situation, but in a situation where housework was involved. For example uzaki helped you with cooking or cleaning sakurai and with her mother as a witness, with a somewhat cliche situation of “You’re going to be a great woman”. I would imagine Hanna come to this conclusion.

So it felt a bit odd, not forced, but I also didn’t feel like it flowed with the environment. In fact, it would have felt more natural if uzaki would also have been in the same style as in his case sakurai, lying down and still thinking about divination. Showing how his family reacted to a Hanna pretty cheerful.

Another thing that felt weird Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! Double – Chapter 3 was the presence of a narrator. While I understand the use of one in a situation like this, the truth is that it didn’t win me over in the anime. I can imagine all of the narrator’s text in the manga, but I don’t think it was a good adaptation idea Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! Double. This is one of those moments when an adaptation might not be entirely faithful to the original work in order to “tweak” it.

I think it would have been a lot better if all of those phrases from the narrator were “thought out” by one of the supporting characters Me either sakaki. Of course it would have been better if Hanna I was not at home sakuraibut for example in the canteen.
