Hentai Prince – Episode 9 & 10 – Let’s go to the past, nyan!

HPOP

Welcome back to Kawaiiosity hope everyone had a great Fathers day weekend, I took some time off to review my own writing, it feels somewhat lacking, a bit messy, and unorganized. So bear with me as I figure that out and keep trying to improve, thanks. Now then let’s jump into episode nine and ten of Hentai Prince.

“The Happy Prince” and “The Longest”

HPEp9-10

In episode nine and ten the plot in both felt all over the place, along with wishes overlapping other wishes but one thing’s for certain, they are connected to Youto and Tsukiko in one way or another.  Both of them can’t remember the past or maybe something is preventing them from remembering what happened back then. Once they find out we will finally have our answers and hopefully an ending that will leave a memorable impression on us, with 2 more episodes to go things should be wrapping up. Personally it feels like things could get serious or even turn emotional here and that’s what I would like to see happen because, one I’m a sucker for those emotional dramatic endings and two, it feels right for this series to throw into some drama especially how they’ve given us a little bit of drama here and there throughout the series but not much really.

So why do I think things might get emotional? Well I think back to Youto having flashbacks of being with Tsukiko and Tsukushi’s mother, it makes me think something happened between her death and Youto. One might wonder if he had something to do with her death or rather he witnessed her death that left him traumatized and that is where the wishes come back into play here. Wanting desperately to keep this buried deep down inside he made an unconscious wish to forget about it and with this series center around wishes this could be quite possible. Tsukiko on the other hand, she seems to have forgotten what happened in the past as well, her wish might have a different meaning then Youto’s, such as she wants to know who known Youto the longest and I think we can pretty much guess how that’s going to turn out, something like ‘what matters is the present not the past‘. Keep in mind here this is just my speculations mixed with other anime experience, but damn.. wouldn’t it make things emotional dramatic if had something serious to do with her death?

So Youto and Tsukiko make an unconscious wish to know what happened in the past and thus are cast into well the past to figure that out. One thing that stood out at that moment the wish was being cast with the Cat-God possessed bunny saying “Goodbye, Yokodera“. Leading me to wonder what was meant by this? and If I had to guess something it would be he himself could be a wish made up by Tsukiko something like she wanted a prince to be by her side, and as fate would have it, this happened to be Youto Yokodera. But let’s be real here a moment, if that’s the case then if she cancels her wish he would disappear right? Or was the wish made with Youto as the catalyst and the wish was added hmm, Ugh ok I think things are getting out of hand here I mean we could be here for a while so I’ll end my speculations here for now.

So what about the everything else like the other characters and such? well… so far Azusa arc seems to have come to a close with her kiss from her prince that dove the Cat God away that was possessing her from the wish she made. I’m not really sure myself, it was neat to see Azusa acting different with supernatural god powers! but seem rather silly to do in this show, ya they wish to a god I get that but this was a bit ehh for me. I mean it was thrown in right at the end and ended rather quickly, giving us just  enough insight of Youto’s past hinting what’s at stake and there  are more wishes at play here and he doesn’t remember them, damn it Youto Write this down boy!. Now Azusa is head over heels for Youto even going so far as to cheer him on in her um… flashy … cheerleader outfit, but our we done with her now? Even near the end of episode ten, he talks to her but go on with Tsukiko, it’s as if kissing didn’t mean anything to him, why even make her know about it? for dramatic love triangle effect later? ugh. Kinda feel disappointed if the leave it like this, but I’m sure this will play some key factor in the remaining episodes to come.. I just know it.

Ya like I was saying everything seems all over the place, almost normally upright yet completely upside down, oh all the mis-directions and unnecessary-ness! The plot near the end of ten give us a bit more of a direction of where things are heading, but lets see if we are given a curveball right before the big finale!

Also seems Youto is now taking MORE notice of Tsukiko, though that could be chalked up to her leaving so he wants to spend time with her before that. However Italy isn’t quite where things are heading quite yet, we need to take a trip down to the past and figure things out all these overlapping wishes and things Youto forgot to write down! so more wishes to discover.

I think these episode were ok even if they jumped all over the place and leaving things unanswered, but it’s also what I like about this anime, thinking what could happen next, how are things connected to them all, its fun in a way to guess. But gosh darn damn, if its one thing I dislike about this anime it would be Youto, I get it he doesn’t see any of these girls are potential targets to date, helping them out and living a free life is his ideal ways, which is alright I guess.  And this series isn’t really focus too heavily on the romantic aspect anyway, but it doe change the game up a bit for a romantic comedy adding a bit of flavor you know.  So I leave you with this, Will this series continued into a second season as JC staff does best? Or will we get an ending that will leave an everlasting memorable impression? Well we will have to wait and see.. But my bet is on a second season down the road and with that.. take care you Kawaiians!
