Sakura Trick 4 – Kiss Them for Me


This week’s Thing That I Enjoyed In Sakura Trick: these two making assumptions without the proper context. It’s all little things like thinking that Haruka doesn’t spoil Yuu too much when she actually lacks the money to buy a stuffed animal, but it’s amusing. This is the risk you take when you conduct undercover journalistic operations — what if you don’t get the whole story?! At least they weren’t ferreting out the Watergate scandal or something. Then again, I’m pretty sure Yuu could bribe Haruka to do anything with but a kiss or two …

Speaking of, there actually was something else I liked in this episode, albeit maybe not for the reasons intended. There are a couple of points where Haruka and Yuu go for big, super romantic lines. One, when Yuu starts kissing Haruka all over when Haruka is laying at her desk. Haruka is like, “Why are you kissing me everywhere?” and Yuu responds “Because I couldn’t reach your mouth.” Then, later, Yuu is on Haruka’s lap and kissing her, and Haruka’s like, “I can’t feel my legs.” Yuu says, “Do you want me off?” Then Haruka says, “No, you just stopped my heart.”

And I was pretty much convulsing with laughter both times. They’re so corny! To be fair, the first one is supposed to be awkward, because the lovey dovey stuff embarrasses Yuu. Still, it’s hilarious. That’s the kind of thing they’d look back on in 10 years and be like, “WOW I CAN’T BELIEVE I EVER SAID THAT OH MY GOD PLEASE FORGET ALL ABOUT THAT.” Teenagers trying to be cool and romantic usually leads to hilarity. I’m pretty sure I would have been less poetic than even that at that age. Every time I stumble upon something I wrote even like five years ago, I want to explode from embarrassment.

Speaking of me being non-poetic, more silly haikus!


No spying right here!
We just read these magazines
For the articles!

sakura-trick-lemonA lemon she is,
But she’s a nice girl. Just don’t
Go to her parties.


Don’t get in the way
Of true love between women.
Fiery doom awaits.


Somewhat surprised that
This show turned into boxing.
Little ear nibble.

      The link is broken
      The URL must be typed
      Keeps out commoners

      OK, it’s fixed now. I accidentally clicked some weird backroom option that made all this happen. Not sure why that even exists!

    Haikus really stink.
    Need three lines just to say that
    Nee-san is my fav.

    Laps around the school
    With only her mind racing:
    Scary happy place.
