Comment: Seto no Hanayome - Ep18 - Now with 300% more quality and 1000% more eechi & hentai!!! @_@
That was the description I read when I first saw Seto available on Tosho, and I thought to myself, "Meh." It starts off pretty normal just like any other episode, but things start heating up during a particular scene, somewhere at the beginning which was a hint to what that comment was referring to(hehe)
Anyway, the show kicks off with Gozaburo announcing to the entire class that they will be going on a field trip to Kyoto. After arriving at their destination and visiting the Pure Water Temple, Nagasumi gets some rare alone time with Shiranui as San spends time with her family.
The entire family album consists of similiar images.
As they stroll the temple compounds, Shiranui shares some of her experiences traversing Japan as a transfer student as her occupation requires it, and manages to break into a smile, much to Nagasumi's surprise. Everything goes well until Maki, ambushes the pair and sprays water on Shiranui, in an attempt to make her transform into her mermaid form. As a sign of her strong will, Shiranui resists the effects of water, albeit with much difficulty. From the audience's point of view, it simply looks like she's getting horny. Yeah, there, I said it.
Wet Tsundere = WIN!
Angry, flustered Tsundere on verge of tears = WINx9001!
Maki's actions are interrupted and is caught by San, although at this point Shiranui assumes it was Nagasumi's plan all along and is mad at him. Moving on, after a really funny exchange between the trio sardine fish guys with the innkeeper and fanservice scene between Mawari and the class president, we finally arrive at the best point of the episode when Shiranui approaches San to discuss something.
So you see, Shiranui wants San's company so they can both attempt to keep their mermaid transformation even after making contact with water. With the utmost bad timing, both Mawari and Nagasumi walk past the room the pair were both in and overheard a conversation that sounded like they wanted to lez out or something.
If you know what I mean.
Mawari, being the self righteous person she is, takes it upon herself to stop their inpure actions (...) and barges in while they were training, so to speak. Then, after a spectacle that you can only see once in your life, Nagasumi quickly drags Mawari out of the bath and orders her to and I quote "Just look at me and not chase this any further" which surprisingly enough worked and Mawari obediently nodded her head as though Nagasumi confessed(sounded like he did to her). And thus, San and Shiranui's identities were kept safe.
An unusually moe moment from Mawari.
With his actions, he has regained Shiranui's trust, with the incident earlier in the day all but forgotten, leaving her somewhat impressed. Nagasumi earned 5 Love Points! Shin out.
