My favorite episode of Naniwa Nadeshiko so far. Moé, cosplay, awesome. This week’s episode features Team N members Yamamoto Sayaka (Sayaka), Watanabe Miyuki (Miruki), Yamada Nana (Nana), Fukumoto Aina (Ai-nyan), Shiroma Miru (Mirurun), and Kinoshita Haruna (Haru) along with KKS Jo Eriko (Jou) and Kinoshita Momoka (Kinoshita).
The first half of the show has the girls producing moé-inducing moments. Jou seemed to be right in her element coming up with just adorable lines. Miruki and Momoka had some awesome moé moments themselves. Sayaka seemed to struggle in the beginning to come up with something, but she really rallied at the end with a few moments so adorable, I think she embarrassed herself a bit. And yet again, Sayaka’s embarrassed reaction: so cute. In the end, Jou and Sayaka finished in 1st with 3 accepted moé moments each.
The second of the episode had the NMB girls doing cosplay, under the direction of Momoka. (Going to use the word “cute” a lot now.) Miruki got the costume of a super cute cop. Jou had on a cute sailor uniform. Sayaka was so cute in her outfit along with her pacifier and red cheeks. Ai-nyan was in a cute blue Chinese dress with a blue wig. Haru was in a cute maid dress. Mirurun made a cute ojou-sama type of girl. And Nana… unfortunately wasn’t so fortunate with Christmas-tree costume.
In the end, Sayaka won MVP for this episode. My favorite episode of Naniwa Nadeshiko so far and that’s really saying something considering how much I love this show. Can’t wait until next week’s episode.
