1 Pound no Fukuin 1ポンドの福音 Ep 6 Screen Caps

Episode 6 Be Strong! Bullied Kid and Woman Boxer
Kosaku played by Kamenashi Kazuya (Nobuta wo Produce, Cartoon KAT-TUN ) is standing in the boxing ring with a black towel over his head as he mimics Sister Angela played by Kuroki Meisa (Haikei, Chichiue-sama, One Missed Call) as he tells the other boxers about Sister Angela admitting that she likes him, they poke fun at him telling him that he misheard her. But then they tell him that even if she does like him it’ll still be troublesome because her dream is her faith, she can’t go steady let alone get married. Kosaku announces that he will become her dream by becoming the champion. The scene switches to the convent where a nun is helping the children build a block castle, Sister Angela sits deep in thought about her confession to Kosaku, when the other nun asks what’s wrong with her she replies “I’m not thinking about Hatanaka-san”, then the children ask her to play and she mistakenly thinks that they said “Kosaku”. Back at the gym, Kosaku is informed that his next opponent has been decided, it’s an undefeated Thai boxer and the manager suggests that he scout the unknown fighter out before the match. Kosaku sneaks into the opponent’s gym and discovers that he is very strong.

Another great episode with plenty of laughs and the best part is that Kuroki Meisa finally gets to do something besides standing around looking cute. I loved the scene with the kids when she mistakes what they’re asking her to do. But this show is all about Kamenashi’s comedic skills and they are excellent as he plays the lovable dope. Any fans of romantic comedies should give this show a try if you’re not already watching it.

RH Plus RHプラス Episode 3 Screen Caps

Kiyoi played by Takano Hassei is given a new assignment to find a rouge vampire who has been attacking humans, whose bite causes the human to become demon like. When Kiyoi informs Makoto played by Miura Yuu, Ageha played by Tochihara Rakuto (Glass no Kiba) and Masakazu played by Ojima Naoya (Hanazakari no Kimitachi e, Gokusen 2) he meets with with resistance, when Ageha whines that today is the unrestricted day when we go out to hunt. Kiyoi suggests getting blood from the blood bank but Ageha protests that he likes fresh blood, Makoto says that he doesn't mind it. But Ageha tells him he has no taste. Misaki Ami played by Tomatsu Haruka pops up and she and Ageha compete for Kiyoi's attention, when Makoto wonders where Masakazu has gotten off to.

This show is a lot of fun and it's getting better as it goes along, I loved this episode some highlights, later in the episode Yui Haruka played by Fujita Rei (Garo, Princess Princess D) appears and his competition with Masakazu is very funny as was the scene straight from a Jackie Chan movie of drunken kung-fu. I hope Fujita appears more in the series he was terrific in this episode and I really liked him in Garo. If you haven't tried this show yet give it a try it's short 24 minute episodes are entertaining, vampire purists probably won't like the fact that most of the vampire conventions are forsaken but it's all for the fun of it.
