1. Iori Minase
2. Yayoi Takatsuki
3. Miki Hoshii
Word of the week: Pheromone!
Iori is quite something. Normally I dislike girls who lug their stuffed animals around, but she doesn’t fawn over Charles that much. She does that tastefully in the ED. Plus, I adore her “hmph!”. For clueless commoners like Yayoi and the twins, her initiative is one to be feared.
Yayoi’s poverty is more heard than seen. I know she isn’t the only character in this show, but she’s got a long way to go in emulating the binbo-moe of Mayuko from NieA_7. But her naive enthusiasm is great. It’s also a nice touch for her to be grouped in with Iori, the rich girl of the bunch.
Miki edges out the twins (Ami and Mami) by her excellent shoot. Sorry twins, I know this is your episode, but you have to work hard for it!
