Don’t Play With Me, Miss Nagatoro Season 2 Episode 8 Recap was first published on Ready Steady Cut.
This article contains spoilers for the Crunchyroll anime episode “Why Don’t You Try Bulking Up a Bit, Paisen?,” from season two of the Don’t Play with Me, Miss Nagatoro series.
Often, friendship serves as the ideal romantic starting point. Senpai and Nagatero, both voiced by Sumire Uesaka, have grown close over the past year, but that doesn’t mean they fully understand one another. Senpai became a little depressed after discovering he has no idea what Nagatoro’s long-term objectives are. We can only hope that his newfound confidence will give him the courage he needs to be courageous and take the initiative this week. Yet in the past, he may have simply let it go since he was too bashful to act on his interest in Nagatoro’s life.
Don’t Toy with Me, Miss Nagatoro Season 2 Episode 8 Recap
Senpai struggles to find inspiration for the still life he is creating and considers switching to another subject. Nagatoro, who is sitting on the couch, notices him and starts to tease him for staring.
Senpai enquires as to whether Nagatoro will serve as a model after discovering he hasn’t worked on portraits in a while. She initially criticises him but ultimately decides to assist, inquiring as to what posture he would like her to strike. Nagatoro gives a number of athletic possibilities before settling on a ready posture typical of her “original martial art” when Senpai instructs her to pose in whatever position seems most natural. She won’t, however, describe the sport to him.
Senpai participates in a Judo practise with his pals, where he loses a match. Nagatoro observes from a nearby window and bemoans his lacklustre performance while Senpai concurs. The pupils are then given fliers for the school’s upcoming Judo tournament, in which they will all participate, by the coach. Senpai tries to offer Nagatoro the paper since she believes she would be good at it, but she has already left.

Where does Gamo invite Senpai?
Gamo and Yoshi enter the art room expecting to speak with Nagatoro about a flyer they spotted, but instead discover that she has already left. If Nagatoro once practised judo, Senpai inquires. In response, Gamo hands him a flier for her family’s gym where Nagatoro is shown and invites him to visit.
Why Does Gamo Punch Nagatoro?
Senpai arrived at the gym that Saturday as requested by Gamo. He can see a boxing battle between Gamo and Nagatoro through the window. Nagatoro becomes sufficiently distracted by his observation of her from the outside for Gamo to punch her.
Even though Senpai is aware of his lack of skill, he wants Nagatoro to teach him Judo so that he can improve at this year’s competition.
Senpai and Nagatoro stay behind to practise as the others leave for lunch. Nagatoro tries to jump right in, but Senpai gets nervous when she first holds him and lets him be quickly pinned.

Nagatoro urges Senpai to attempt to free himself, but he quickly discovers that this is more difficult than any other time he has been impaled. She shouts at him and tightens the pins after he complains that Nagatoro’s body is “too heavy” for him to escape. Yet as he subsequently witnesses Nagatoro flipping Gamo, he just manages to become more in awe of her.
What Was Nagatoro’s Original Martial Art?
Senpai asks Nagatoro if she ever practised Judo while they are out for a stroll, and she replies that she once did. But she claims she doesn’t precisely hate it, she nearly seems regretful when she tells him that she quit practising when she realised there were opponents she couldn’t defeat and felt trapped. Nagatoro declines, despite Senpai’s belief that she would stand an excellent chance of winning the school competition.

Senpai has been practising for a recent judo tournament, and Sunomiya returns to school to assist him after learning this through Nagatoro’s buddies. Nagatoro is then informed of what is taking place, forcing her to have a look for herself.
Like before, Senpai becomes agitated and falls to the ground. Nagatoro enters just in time to observe Senpai pinned beneath Sunomiya in a provocative posture and demands to know what Senpai is thinking. Sunomiya responds that she would be happy to assist Senpai in his training leading up to his competition, but he politely rejects, stating that Nagatoro is in charge of everything. The episode closes with Sunomiya watching adoringly as they continue to play fight until she meets up with another student who resembles her a lot.

While we as viewers know a lot about Senpai and Nagatoro’s current selves, we know nothing about their earlier selves. It was interesting to see Nagatoro from a different perspective. She generally exudes such self-assurance and confidence, but in this episode, we witnessed her expressing emotions that are rarely given the chance to be felt. The way the show manages its rhythm and chooses when to reveal particular layers is what makes episodes like this stand out in terms of character development, therefore it was highlighted. I enjoy watching the characters grow and adapt without jeopardising other important aspects of the programme, like th
