You know what you can’t do in a week? Go to Japan! It’s just the type of place that needs some time to explore. And if you’re me, and on the other side of the world, it’s gonna take like 6 days to get over the jet lag. I’m saying Matt’s still on holiday and I’m not so totally jealous I wish he would drop everything and just not be on holiday anymore. No way! Friends love it when friends are having a good time. Yay…friendship…. yeah I’m doing this solo again. Bold Irina coming your way.
While regular Matt/Irina is here to make sure there’s no shenanigans going on! Last week Irina smartly stuck to copy pasting previously made statements to make sure there’s no misrepresentation so that was o.k., but this time it’s all made up. Let’s see who’s friends after this!
You started last time so I’ll take the lead this week little lady! You just sit back and enjoy the ride! I gotta say the art style may not have been my personal aesthetic but it was interesting and have the shots where Ekoda’s nice naked rear so I’m pretty happy with this!
Oh Matt, I knew you would say that. Not the first part, that was kinda weird… I get what you mean about the art. I really liked it and it was striking. I think it was a great choice. On a purely visceral level, I can’t say this is the “prettiest” Ekoda has looked by my tastes. I still wouldn’t have changed a thing!
Did you notice the awesome soundtrack this week. I guess Takahashi Ryosuke is more interested in using music to set the mood. This was probably the best sounding episode so far.
Who is Takahashi Ryosuke?
The director for this episode.
Oh yeah, I knew that. I was just testing to see if you knew that… Hmm. I just looked it up, it seems all 12 episodes are directed by men. Feels like a missed opportunity there… Anyways, you are right, it did sound great. Not just the music but there was a lot more atmospheric sounds this week and I think it really made the episode pop.
Ekoda was really strutting her stuff. That makeshift “apron” was hilarious.
OMG I was just going to say about that cooking scene. When it started out I thought to myself, cooking naked might sound fun and sexy in theory but I’ve done it and hot oil splatters, steam can get really hot. It is NOT a good idea to expose your most delicate flesh to that. Believe me! And then she did her paper bag shield and I was like YASSS! Relatable! Respect!!!
Hmm, I haven’t done much naked cookin yet but I can imagine accidentally dropping something piping hot in the wrong spot would not be fun. This said, I would not have minded an unobstructed view either!
So Irina, how did you like this episode in general?
Guys, I mean Matt, I loved this episode. It is my favourite so far by a mile. t made me smile and I could use all the smiles I can get. This is the Ekoda I’m here for. Fun, wry, self aware and in control of herself. I want to know this Ekoda better!
She looked like she was having a great time this week. ButI always liked Ekoda and there’s no difference this week. Let’s see what she gets herself into next week!
