Today was a day of pleasant surprises! (For unpleasant: See Mokke review) Here, I was expecting some fanservice-y, piece of crap that puts Kendo to shame. You know what!? I didn’t see a single tit pop out or a panty flash anywhere in here. OH HAPPY DAY~ Something I really, genuinely like. You know why!? Because it had a nice amount of humor as well as some shamble of a plot. *Is crying a little in joy*

Just for this, I have some links. This blog provides some excellent Kendo Terms  and a lovely little article on Bamboo Blade characters.

The episode starts off at the Kendo club at Muroe Private High School’s Kendo club. Seems that all the old members have left or dropped out leaving only the instructor, Ishida “Kojirou” Toraji, and the new Kendo Captian, Chiba Kirino. Hard times have hit Koijirou-sensei. He’s absolutely broke and pretty damn morose about it.

However, one night as he was drinking with his buddy and rival kendo teacher, Ishibashi Kenzaburou, he makes a bet. That if his girls could beat Kenzaburou’s then he would get to eat free for a year. Eating free for a year really saves a lot of money you know.

Koujirou is determined to build a strong army of girls, even turning away male Kendo members int he process. However, Kirino makes him let in Nakata Yuuji and his friend Eiga Danjuurou which are both males. This works out pretty good since (unexpectedly) Eiga has a girlfriend who needs to join a club.

Later that evening, in a humorous turn of events, three different balls and a sensei come flying out towards Koujirou and Kirino. With the quick strokes of a broom stick a quiet girl is able to knock them all away (sending the sensei back into the window from whence he fell). Koujirou is absolutely determined to have her in his kendo club. She declines. He stalks her. Turns out she is Kawazoe Tamaki, daughter of a Kendo master.

The next day it turns out Eiga has a very attractive girlfriend, but that’s not really important. Koujirou tries to convince Nakata to recruit Tamaki. That doesn’t work, not that he even asks her. They turn out to be childhood friends though. The next day we meet a bully Toyama who isn’t currently a member of the Kendo club, but was once.

He sees Eiga using a Bokken improperly and suddenly starts beating on him. Meanwhile, Kirino is trying to recruit Tamaki in her own way, by dragging her there. They see Toyama beating up on Eiga. Tamaki doesn’t….seem…to…like…this. The episode ends. But she seems pissed.
