Ayatsuji rightly sees Kurosawa kissing Junichi for what it is; a lame trap, and forgives him, but makes him swear an oath never to kiss anyone but her from now on. Kurosawa is apparently out of tricks, because after a speech assembly in which Ayatsuji impresses everyone, she wins the election handily, making Junichi her VP. When Junichi leads a stray dog away from Ayatsuji on their walk home, he ends up in the river, and Ayatsuji invites him to her place to bathe and dry off, even offering to wash his back. When the new term starts, the couple are as happy as clams.
First, we must express relief for two reasons: one, Ayatsuji saw right through Kurosawa’s scheme; and two, both she and the show make it clear they know Junichi is as big an idiot as we think he is for falling for such an obvious trap. Frankly, Ayatsuji is more than Junichi deserves, and she doesn’t let him forget it. That being said, for all his thickness, he does love her, and emphatically agrees to swear he only has lips for her.
Considering these are the first two episodes of the entire Amagami SS series in which Junichi already has the girlfriend, this episode takes the proper steps to make their relationship realistic, without getting too graphic. In fact, the stuff that goes on off-camera between the two lovebirds is merely hinted at with a subtle wink, and it’s refreshing that Ayatsuji isn’t a complete prude (though it’s too much even for her when he leaps to his feet from thebath a little to eagerly). Hell, she smooches him to calm him down. They’re not a bad couple to watch. Alas, this is it for them; next week Junichi will be involved with…sigh…Rihoko. She eats a lot! Hilarious!
