Hajimete no Gal Episode 5 Review

The final member of the harem (maybe?) gets their own feature episode. This week it is Nene, Junichi’s disproportionate  childhood friend. At the end of the previous episode, they showed someone getting a complete gyaru makeover, and as it turns out it was Nene!

Nene gets the gal makeover to try to win Junichi over, since it seems everyone is under the impression that he has a gal fetish. To be honest, she is my least favorite character so far. So I really didn’t care much for her backstory or honestly anything that had to do with her in this episode.

I feel like the translators for the subtitles took a few creative liberties with this one.

This episode was pretty average for me, as nothing particularly stood out. So I don’t have any insightful things to say about. Though I was a fan of Junichi’s monologue about war, which was accompanied by various artworks depicting war, except the characters from the artworks were replaced with Hajimete no Gal characters. It was a nice added touch, I felt.

Well, Junichi isn’t Seiya Toudoin, that’s for sure.

I’m hoping the next episode will be more about Yame and Junichi’s relationship, and less about these otherwise irrelevant background characters.

They ended this episode this way, so it’s only fair I end my review this way.
