Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu Season 2 Episode 11 Review: I Want to Keep Feeling it...

Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)

So, operation Let's Annoy the Audience I mean Yayoi Kayahara's plan to separate Yuuto from Haruka is proceeding well, because Yuuto is a doormat. While other people, including Milan the idol singer and Mika try their best to rouse Yuuto to action, he is immobilized, largely because the writers mistake Yuuto's indecisiveness and weakness in the face of conflicting goals for a genuinely interesting personality, when in fact it is maddening and utterly cliched.

The issue gets forced a little bit when Yuuto suddenly receives a whole load of tickets to Milan's concert on Feb. 14th, the same day that Haruka's audition is scheduled to take place. This would seem to work into Kayahara's plan, as this would keep Yuuto away.

So, it's the day of the concert and Yuuto is at Milan's concert, far away from the audition hall. The evil talent scouts are practically rubbing their hands in glee. In the meantime, Mika and the Maid Squad have been looking into the evil talent scouts company and have found out some interesting things. Things that gain the attention of another party as well.

But the real push comes from Milan, who goes so far as to make a nice little speech about choices and dedicates her next song to a certain stupid obstacle When you see the word stupid (and hear baka in the Japanese), it's pretty obvious who it is referring to. So, Yuuto goes and storms into the audition hall, and we get a speech that seems like the writers watched the movie The Graduate one too many times.

In the end, the day is saved, though not by Yuuto. Instead, it was an ending that I saw coming about, oh, fifteen minutes before it did. Predictable writers are predictable. So, we end with justice being served, and lots of mushy stuff.
