Natsu no Arashi 05

Episode 05 (6.5/10 Not very Good)
Typical fanservice episode. It’s always disappointing to see this, but this time it was especially irritating. How many times can anime write a cross-dressing gender bender and get away with it? It’s repetition of a stupid idea. You’d think they would have realized its stupidity after the first time. So, anyway, Jun’s a girl. Whoopity-doo. There was no explanation or sense to the situation at all. Another plot they haven’t explained is how Arashi and Kaya found out about time jumping and connecting in the first place. But, it seems in this anime hackneyed gags about crossdressing are more important than the main plot. I mean, isn’t Hajime creepy enough without the maid outfit? The choice of colors in this anime is weird. I though the green kimonos were bad from the start. The maid outfits were nearly as bad.
Suggestive Content:
Alright… Jun is shown changing and in the shower several times. She’s a girl pretending to be a boy for some unknown reason. Hajime cross-dresses and he flips Jun’s skirt up. There’s some slapstick violence.
Animation: 7/10
