“. . .”
The weird girl in the weird world brings the weird robot out into the fields. The doll/robot is wondering why there are beads of lights similar to fireflies floating up.
Okazaki bumps into Nagisa on his way to school. Kyou kills Tomoya with her motorbike; no, he’s still alive. Kyou points out that since the two are calling each other by first names, they could be dating. The lovebirds wonder when they’ve started calling each other by first names.
At school, Okazaki tricks Sunohara into meeting the genius girl, Kotomi. Sunohara got pissed since Kotomi completely ignored him. When Okazaki finally calls her as Kotomi-chan, she points out that he shouldn’t leave a mess, which Sunohara did earlier so she would notice him. Okazaki asks her if she’d join the Theater club.
Kotomi hides behind Okazaki as he introduces her to Nagisa. Apparently, she’s really shy and hates bullies. Okaazaki halts the two girls’ conversation since the two aren’t making any sense anymore. Okazaki accompanies Kotomi home, but they enter a bookshop first. He tells her off when she suddenly tries cutting a page with a pair of scissors.
The next day, he introduces Kotomi to the rest of his harem. Then end disastrously. Kotomi hugs Tomoyo, who’s in her bear costume, when Okazaki introduces her. Kotomi tells him she likes bears. Oh, and Sunohara gets kicked by the bear. Kawaii.
Kyou drops by and orders Okazaki to bring Kotomi and the gang to a nice place later. The group arrive at the theater club room. The four girls: Nagisa, Kyou, Ryou, and Kotomi introduce themselves. And Okazaki shows her the primary example of a jab, by making fun of Kyou’s speech.
Kotomi walks out of the room when she hears a music being played. She sees the violin and asks if she could play it. All the people go down.
This is a nice intro on Kotomi’s arc. I’d be wary of her violin powers though.
