Back into the mischievous shoes of Masuzu, OreShura is slowly picking up. While so far we haven’t seen the rest of Eita’s harem, it will be soon. Beginning where the first episode left off, Chiwa wants an answer to why Eita was going out with Masuzu. Playing the ruse, Masuzu introduces herself deceptively as a mature and pretty lady, which Chiwa falls into. Eita begins to worry about her not being let in on the secret but Masuzu wants to do something about her. With Chiwa trying to be popular, Masuzu forms a club that would make her into a popular woman, with the help of Eita’s personal diary. They undergo their first meeting with Masuzu directly reading from the diary and using it to help Masuzu to become popular. The course of action is to gain the interest of a popular boy in class by pretending to be a guitarist, but that plan doesn’t go well at all. But Chiwa doesn’t fret and returns to club to try again. When she leaves, Eita discuss Chiwa’s past and passion to Masuzu.

OreShura Episode 2 Review Screen 5

There is a fair amount of amusing moments in this episode, mainly coming from Masuzu’s schemes; such as lifting her skirt so Eita can see her panties seeing him react as Chiwa is present, or Masuzu reading out loud Eita’s painful book of memories. But still, we haven’t seen the rest of the harem or even glimpse of them, they maybe in the backgrounds but largely missing. The whole vibe of the show is somewhat weird but largely entertaining, as we see the devious schemes of Masuzu and small hopes of her becoming more fond of Eita, but like in other similar series, Chiwa won’t be chosen in the end. Other than that, there doesn’t seem to be any intense themes or complex plot so far, nothing dramatic and everything seems rather light- especially all the bright colours in the show.

There is some progression in the backstory with some of Chiwa’s past revealed for her current personality and limitations. While not everything has been fully revealed yet, we know that she is very hardworking and will want to achieve her goal no matter what, would it be becoming popular or getting Eita. This episode also introduces the ending, which is very pleasing to the eye. Once again, this is a large scheme of vibrant colours that fit with the characters. The art style is pretty much a heavenly theme with the main girls all-innocent and reminds me of old adventure art. The song itself is rather upbeat and catchy, so there isn’t much to fault on the ending.

The show so far is a typical harem show and offers enjoyment for the most part. There isn’t anything too worthwhile as of yet, but is fun to see Masuzu’s antics.
