#1: 先輩男子 – Senpai danshi
田仲聡輔 （大人の余裕で包み込んでくれる会社の先輩）– Tanaka Sousuke (your senpai from work who embraces you with the composure of a mature man)
Sighs, so much for the whole OP battle. Well moving on.. This week, it’s the senpai character voiced by Namikawa Daisuke. Oh Namikawa, I so thought you could do better. This character certainly did not do justice to Namikawa’s amazing range, and it was quite the disappointing episode.
We are greeted with the senpai, who is taking the uh, um.. otome back from a post-work drinks session. Okay dude, it is really sweet of you to take the girl back home after she has had one drink too many. But… creepy much? It’s like, why are you kidnapping her? Of course he wasn’t kidnapping her, but it definitely had that who serial killer kidnapping vibe going on. maybe because of the dim lighting. Right.. dim lighting is good for many other things, I get it. However, it was just… beyond odd.
I guess he was quite alright in the middle, when he was trying to calm her down by telling her about his mess ups. But it all ends very quickly when he goes back to creepy stalker mode, saying that he “gets to go drinking with” her again. And that whole bit about 「じゃ明日、一緒に会社へ行くか？」(Why don’t we go to work together tomorrow) had all kinds of implications. And was entirely cringe-worthy. Wow, good on you dude. What a way to be honest! And to bring on the shudders.
Probably my favourite part of the episode was when he offered her tissues. I just liked the way Namikawa said “tissue”. It was cute. Other than that, not your best Namikawa, not your best.
Well, till next week (oh please don’t let it be the seiyuu I picked)~
