It seems the big day came a little earlier than expected.
Shingeki no Kyoujin outfit hanging on her wall (right next to Yukiatsu's Menma dress), because Servant X Servant was probably in competition with the identity of a certain female titan for the worst-concealed "spoiler" of the season, and both revealed what we pretty much already knew this week. As with AoT, though, the interest here is not so much in the surprise itself, but the aftermath. Just where does the Hasebe x Lucy relationship (and I think it's fair to call it that now) go from here?
Lucy looked every bit as good in her outfit as I expected - and to give a little more credit to Chihaya, it was a fine choice for Lucy, cute and sexy while retaining a bit of classical grace. I haven't yet figured out if the glasses thing was Hasebe's true feelings or just a bit of fun, but I suspect he likes Lucy equally well either with or without megane (I know I do).
used book store he'd picked out just for the occasion. The key moment for me was when Lucy, wrestling with her artificial "nice vs. normal" Hasebe debate (you can thank Chihaya's sabotage for that) came to the realization that with Hasebe, nice is normal. The way he treats her isn't an act, it's who he really is. It's understandable that this was a bit of a panic moment for her, given that it sort of shakes her foundations to the core, but it's an important milestone nonetheless. Of course Hasebe is right that Lucy uses her name as a convenient excuse to avoid having to face real grown-up concerns in her life, and he was gently but firmly pushing her to address her true feelings when in typical anime fashion, his phone rang at the worst possible moment.
