It’s time for the sports day at Kazuma’s school, as well as the Hikonan Race, and everyone enjoys a fun-filled day of boob jiggling, eel manhandling, shota crossdressing and various costumes. But who will win the race?

Sakai I love you but your tits are so ridiculous.

Finally get to see the archery from the opening in action.

Had to cap dem legs.

I think this doesn't need a caption.

(Wow shortest synopsis ever but really. That really is the whole episode.) Sports-day focused episodes of anime are generally not that exciting, and Hoshizora is following with that trend, only trying to spice things up more with copious amounts of fanservice. This show never really shied away from the odd panty shot/boob jiggle, but compared to others in the genre it always felt comparatively subdued (being more content to focus on more important things such as lingering shots of Ayumu’s shota chest). This episode was different, and I was bombarded with detailed crotch-shot after detailed crotch-shot and absolute zero missed opportunities for boob bouncing. We even get to see an extended, pointless sequence of Madoka jumping over and over again, making her boobs bounce until it gives Random Background Guy an erection. I…kind of wish I was kidding here, but that is really the soaring comedic heights we’re resorting to now. But why? Of course, I was sceptical. I knew they were planning something with this sudden burst of fanservice, it was almost to distract the viewer from something…but what? Well, the opening of the episode kind of gave it away, Daigo (who may or may not be a shotacon) has convinced Ayumu to wear a cheerleaders outfit. This kind of reminds me of Baka to Test how every now and then it would show fanservice of the girls all “Wait, don’t go away! This show isn’t totally gay we swear, look, boobies! lol no jk it is really gay after all but you love it.”
While Ayumu does get a panty-shot, the fanservice of him isn’t quite as gratuitious as I was expecting, but there are plenty of shots of him looking adorable anyway so that’s good enough for me.
As for the rest of the episode….well, it wasn’t that spectacular, and due to the animators spending all their budget on detailed crotches and boob jiggling the rest of the animation is incredibly stilted-looking for the most part. Tsundere-Ninja ends up winning the race…because after she promised that GenericShota she would win, she couldn’t possibly lose, even if she twisted her ankle. (Technically, isn’t Kazuma carrying her to the finishing line kind of cheating? I mean sure she touched the ribbon first but still, we get a feelgood ending and he got to wear a tuxedo and carry her in a wedding dress.) There was some really obvious flag-raising here, by the way. But since Kazuma gave Daigo an enthusiastic thumbs up for putting his little brother in a mini skirt, not to mention Ayumu’s placement in the ‘prospective waifu brigade’ at the start of this show’s opening….. I’m starting to think the little brother route isn’t that far out of the question. (At least we’ll definitely get a lot more shota fanservice either way.)

LOL the guy.

I was surprised how much this suits her...

No complaints here.
