English Dub Review: The 100 Girlfriends Who Really, Really, Really, Really, REALLY Love You “Everyone’s Favorite: The Swimsuit Episode”


Rentarou and his girlfriends go on a date to a new water park.

Our Take:

What would an anime be with its mandatory swimsuit episode, especially a harem anime? Hakari suggests that everyone goes on a date to a new water park, which they all agree to. Karane says she’s cold when she comes out of the changing room, so she decides to sit out for a while. Despite this and a few other mishaps, Rentarou wants everyone to have a great time on this date.

This episode does a great job at giving each girlfriend a good amount of screen time. Everyone gets an equal amount of focus, as well as an equally sweet moment with Rentarou. He shows them all how much he cares about them. I really like the fact that he can treat each of them equally despite the fact that he currently has four girlfriends at the same time.

This is also the funniest episode of the series so far in my opinion. They’ve all been pretty hilarious up to this point, but the show reaches a new level here. It pokes fun at all of the usual swimsuit episode tropes and introduces new twists on them. Plus, Ian Sinclair is the narrator for this episode. He only has a few lines, but he offers so much hilarity with those few lines. I’m not surprised though, since he’s always great in any narrator role he’s had.

This could very well be the best swimsuit episode I’ve ever seen. If not, it’s a contender for sure. It perfectly blends comedy and romance, while giving all of the main characters the right amount of focus. I can’t think of anything wrong with this episode and it further proves why this anime is one of this season’s powerhouses.
