A Quick Review On The Previous Episode!
Studio Nomad has brought us Koikimo, though its title gives the Western audience a better glimpse of the grim fable to come. As with so many of the so-called “final girls” of horror cinema; our heroine Ichika Arima is a sweet teenager that is simply trying to make it through high school with her head and heart intact.
She is the mythic Red Riding Good that finds herself lost in a deadly forest; One made up of concrete and office buildings and filled with predators dressed in three-piece suits.
The wolf in It’s Disgusting To Call This Love anime is Rio. Therefore, he brings the kind of dandy psychopath that Christian Bale embodied well in his career-defining performance. I’m talking about ‘Patrick Bateman’ in American Psycho.
Rio’s high school best friend Masuda makes his first appearance. He reacts in disbelief when he learns about Rio’s one-sided crush. Maduda is A freelance Photographer, and also Rio’s middle-high school friend.
Ichika along with her best friend Ryou is busy with the school festival program. As Rio makes his entry along with Masuda at the festival, things start to get uneasy for Ichika yet once again.
Ryou assists her brother to spend some time with Ichika as she insists on asking Ichika to show her brother around. Despite her uneasiness, Ichika however agrees as she left with no choice.
Ryou treats her well as always to gain her trust and love toward him. Things get spicy when the same saving scene from before repeats except, the other way around. He shows his gratitude toward Ichika as he recalls the scene from the past. Rio calls it even as this time he saves Ichika from falling.
It’s Disgusting To Call This Love, Episode 3: Predictions & Possibilities
So what will happen in It’s Disgusting To Call This Love, Episode 3? From here on out it seems like there will be a change in the plot. After the epic ‘fall saving scene’ between the couple, Ichika’s perspective & attitude might change towards Rio.
As she recalls Rio’s good treatment towards her from within the past days, there might be a change of events. Maybe, Yuko Kakihara, the writer may finally give us some pleasant plot, avoiding all the uneasiness in the story.
We won’t know until we watch It’s Disgusting To Call This Love, Episode 3.
