Kae-Tan desu~ (*≧▽≦)
You’ve waited and as promised, here is Clean Freak! Aoyama-kun’s recap of episode 1 entitled “Aoyama is a Clean Freak” by yours truly!
So as you’ve probably watched the video at the top of the screen, we’ve been introduced to Aoyama, who although has an extreme complex about getting dirty, is still very popular within Fujimi High School with both the female and male student population.
The team’s coach explains to Zaizen, a senior and who looks to be the team ace (number 10 shirt), about Aoyama’s condition and the circumstances of them playing together. Even though he acknowledges the fact that Aoyama is good enough to make the Japanese team, Zaizen is 100% certain that Aoyama is not serious about the sport and that his complex will be his downfall. When he accuses the team of being overprotective of Aoyama, they waste no time in turning the tables on him, teasing him about how he is always getting new pair of spikes because his dad is rich and he gets driven to and from school by a butler (even the baseball team joins in………when did those guys even get there…)
Practice is over and the coach shows Zaizen how even though Aoyama is a germaphobe, he still engages in the activities and even goes as far as staying after each session to polish the balls, almost as though he is thanking them. This broadens Zaizen’s views of Aoyama that he does enjoy playing the game. The next day, the members of Oshigama-Minami High School team show up for a practice match. It seems as though Takechi, who was on the same Under 16 team with Aoyama extended an invitation for him to attend the school, but Aoyama refused because, well, reasons.
Takechi announces that Aoyama’s talents are being wasted by being on a team that never makes it past the preliminaries and that he will convince him through force to join their team. Aoyama however, overcomes all odds thrown at him, even when the rain and mud on the pitch threatens play and scores the winning goal for Fujimi with 5 minutes remaining on the clock. Zaizen finally acknowledges him as a teammate and gives him the ace shirt. Oh and about that actual reason behind Aoyama wanting to go to Fujimi? Well…..they have washlets……..*crickets -_____-. See the link for how they work and well, it doesn’t take an idiot to put 2 and 2 together. I am still interested in what purpose the guy who plays with his butt has on this team.
