Hullo, Alex covering for Liam since he’s moving house and that lot…and Alex kinda needed to post an anime post before the super scary Mimi comes after him.
Here we have a rather interesting flick back to the comedy styled routines of Season 1, and whilst it was by no means a bad outing, it didn’t really match up to the better jokes in the show, and some of the jokes were pretty cringeworthy.
It was a nice attempt at showing what it’s like for a male teenager to get a job, since I know that I have a lot of the same problems Yuuki has. But if it wanted to be serious, the jokes weren’t neccessary. A nice try, but nothing spectacular and one of the average episodes of the franchise.
What do you get when a good show talks about it’s best subject? I’d imagine you’d get an episode similar to this one, to be honest. The comedy takes a back seat and lets the story go back to the Chizuru and Mary pairing, which I find to be really cute whilst being amazingly well done.
Ultimately, i’m wondering if it’s a playful jab at the “You can’t pick who you love” scenario, as the characters go through their own heartfelt problems, and basically picking up where it left off; with Chizuru confessing to Mary and Mary avoiding him ever since.
I don’t know what it is about this show, and I havn’t put my finger on it, but the way it handles relationships between characters is brilliant. Not only that, but it’s a step ahead of everything else, handling a relationship from a male perspective, and doing a damn good job of being realistic whilst it’s at it. I reckon it’ll be a long time before another show provides a male point-of-view romance that can rival Kimi to Boku’s latest scenario, and judging from the preview, it looks like this theme will carry the show to it’s end.
