What Should Happen to You During a Summer Episode – According to Anime
According to anime, there are certain events that should happen to all good MCs during their summer episode. Thanks to our super-accurate birthday chart…
…you can get a picture of what might happen during your summer festival episode… but what ELSE should you expect during your anime summer?
Your Anime Summer Episode 101: What to Expect
A Summer Festival (Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun)
Air out the yukata, friends, because it’s time for a summer festival! You know the kind: filled with yummy food stalls, games, secret crushes, failed confessions… wait what?
A Pool Scene (Sakura Trick)
…or two anime pool scenes if you’re lucky. Summer is hot, so of course one of the best ways is to cool off poolside in a bikini with your friends. Floaty is optional.
Anime Beach Scene (Fate/kaleid prisma illya liner zwei hertz!)
An alternative to the pool scene is the beach episode! Summer in anime means trips to the beach to play in the ocean and possibly catch a glimpse of your crush in their swimming attire.
Boredom (Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto)
It’s summer, and school is out! You should, ideally, have some moments to yourself in your anime summer episode. Feel free to lounge about out of your school uniform and explore something interesting. A hole to the other side of the world, maybe, if you’re feeling ambitious.
Test of Courage/Kimodemshi (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU)
A common summer anime trope and a plot device to bring two characters together, a test of courage is the perfect way to literally take a character out of their comfort zone. If you’re lucky, you get to be the scarer instead of the scare-ee!
Summer Romance… Maybe… Not (Food Wars!)
Without school, you have more chances to “run into” your crush in public. Take advantage of the summer and see if an anime summer romance may bloom for you. Maybe they’ll even call YOU out of the blue!
Fireworks (One Week Friends)
Get some fireworks and set them off with good friends, or a crush. Fireworks can be the super romantic backdrop to all the summer drama happening down below.
