Episode 11 — “The Body Doesn’t Lie”
TenPuru Ecchi Weekly Wisdom
The idiom for this week, 胸に一物 (むねにいちもつ, mune ni ichimotsu), also has an alternative phrasing, 腹に一物 (はらにいちもつ, hara ni ichimotsu). The first has the literal translation of “A thing in one’s heart,” while the second translates to “A thing in one’s belly.” They can both mean “A trick up the sleeve, machination, plot” in English, but TenPuru will always choose the chance for a chest joke! Even better, when spelled with kanji alone, 一物 has a tertiary definition of “penis.” Yes, literally. This anime wants you to think about sticking a member between mammaries. Paizuri for the win!
Of course, English also has different idioms when we have things to keep secret. Besides “trick up one’s sleeve,” which makes me think of a card game, we have “close to the vest.” But we also say, “Keep it close to the chest.” I can’t think of a safer, more secure, warmer, and more pleasurable location to hold my most valuable body part than the ample bosom of a willing maiden. Oddly, TenPuru has no advice on this situation other than to force us to look at Yuzuki’s cleavage. I’m not complaining; I’m merely describing. And it worked on me!
Kiki informs Yuzuki that the repair cost of the decapitated Buddha statue will be about five thousand dollars. Yuzuki claims she’ll figure something out, and Kiki and Akemitsu wonder how she can be meatheaded and airheaded simultaneously. Akemitsu doesn’t trust her and starts looking for a part-time job. His reasoning about not using the Temple’s phone number is convoluted. And if he borrows Yuzuki’s smartphone, wouldn’t she find out he’s applying for work? Okay, Brain, shut yourself off. Here comes Yuzuki in a maid café uniform in TenPuru! This bedroom scene is so distracting. No, not from Yuzuki’s cleavage and zettai ryouiki. I keep waiting to hear why she’s wearing that uniform! Akemitsu can barely think straight… because something else got straighter!
Har. Yuzuki’s bedroom posters are all muscle-bound models. Contrast them to Kurage’s posters. The younger sister wants to become an adult, so the posters reflect that. What does Yuzuki wish to become? A muscle-bound freak! I wouldn’t mind the lady with razor-sharp abs. Ha! Akemitsu called Yuzuki “dumb” to her face! And she finally realized what she was wearing! Ah. Yuzuki tried on a waitress uniform from her friend’s job, and then Yuzuki fell asleep. Yuzuki already can’t work more part-time jobs. She can’t admit she’s tired, so she makes a bet: massage to make her fall asleep! Serve a maid instead of receiving service? Wrongness on so many levels.
It’s time for sexy sounds and misunderstandings in TenPuru. I love how Akemitsu’s angel and devil on his shoulders agree on erotic manipulation. Oh yes! Shimaidon incoming! Tsukuyo wishes that was her. Ooh. I’ve never heard Akemitsu’s response in anime before. If it’s none of his business, then it’s none of her business what he does either! Unassailable logic. Is it sudden date mode for Tsukuyo?
Date Mode Tsundere!
Tsukuyo has lovey-dovey dreams about Akemitsu, but Kurage pays for the aftermath. Oh. Tsukuyo still pays, but in dessert. Tsukuyo is your classic anime tsundere. Date mode, but it’s not a date! Yup. It was definitely not a date from Akemitsu’s perspective. But he’ll compliment the dickens out of her. Ah. Akemitsu is finally replacing the phone he destroyed in the first episode of TenPuru. He thinks living with others qualifies him for a couples discount. Oh well. That didn’t work, but the saleslady still shot Tsukuyo a knowing look. Hee! Look at that blush on top of a blush! Stop being such a nice guy who pays attention to girls, Akemitsu! They’ll fall deeper in love! Tsukuyo was Akemitsu’s first! First contact in his phone address book! Bask in the afterglow, Tsukuyo. She’s got it so bad for him.
Concrete: Apply Directly to the Forehead
Ooh. Epilogue. A bad dream and a concrete block applied directly to the forehead. Kurage finally learned her lesson. Super Surprise Concrete! When will Tsukuyo? Next time, girls can’t do things alone without Akemitsu. Do I have that right? It’s the season finale!
TenPuru streams on Crunchyroll in Japanese audio and multiple language subtitles.
Yuzuki looked good in a maid outfit. Do you think she’ll work at her friend’s place? The J-List store has many maid products if you’re impatient to see more of Yuzuki, the café maid. I love artist Yd from Artist Circle OrangeMaru and his maid versions of Fate Grand Order heroines. Check out Mash ready to serve in Chaldea Maid #Mash Kyrie Light — Fate Grand Order Fan Book.
Next week is the season finale. Do you think the Crescent Moon Temple will gather enough funds to reattach the poor Buddha’s head? Are there other places with sexy uniforms you’d like the girls to work for? Let us know in the comments below or online on Facebook, Twitter, or Discord.
