For once, just once, I want to see a main character of a harem show actually hate someone, (who they don’t consider a rival or didn’t kill their father, etc.) I also want to see a main character who is completely unfazed or almost angry at the random perverted things that always happen. That’d be great, honestly. Someone who actually doesn’t blush at all of that crap and act all stupid about it. It can’t be impossible to have an actual different harem lead, right? — KizukuKanshi
Be careful what you wish for.
As far as I’m concerned, KizukuKanshi just described Sasha pretty well.
Hate is pretty strong so why don’t we use dislike instead. In that case, Sasha does dislike these girls plenty and they haven’t killed his father or anything:
The only time he blushed this episode was when Tomo paid him a non-sexual compliment. Otherwise, Sasha’s always walking in on naked girls, groping them for no reason whatsoever and never seems fazed by any of it:
There you go… a different harem lead. Is it because he isn’t Japanese that he gets to act this way while every other harem lead is wimpy and emotional? What’s even funnier is that he’s such a wish-fulfillment fantasy for manchildren. His daily routine pretty much consists of groping women, insulting women, and coming to the rescue of those women he just insulted. For good measure, he probably insults them afterward too like their “soma” was too cold and it made his lance a little flabby. Unless, of course, it’s the retarded pair of walking boobs Tomo; you don’t dare mistreat her.
Oh, Sasha’s even a really smart. Who would’ve guessed!
What kind of person actually wishes he could be Sasha? “Heh, I wish I could suck tits and put dem hos in their place like my man Sasha!!”
When Sasha’s not being abnormally cool and apathetic to outsiders, he’s always emo-ing it up in his lonesome.
I guess we’re supposed to feel sorry for him. I guess we’re supposed to excuse his asshole nature because he had to crawl through tough Russian winters and Napoleon can attest to what a pain in the ass that is.
And the thing is… Sasha’s abhorrent behavior is rewarded.
“I BET HE LIKES YOU TEEHEE. HE ALWAYS SAVES YOU.”
So uh… do normal people just let others die. “Sorry, I only had a crush on you in fifth grade but I grew out of it. I would have saved you back then though!”
Anyhow, Mafuyu then blushes as if she has any reason to like him, but she totally can’t show it because she’s such a tsundere firecracker herself. So of course, Tomo then asks if Mafuyu likes Sasha instead, and despite the fact that Sasha has treated her with almost contempt up until this point, Mafuyu doesn’t laugh derisively at the suggestion. She just gets all embarrassed like the good tsunderekko that she is. But why? Why is there “a spring in [Mafuyu’s] step ever since Sasha arrived?” Tomo suggests that Mafuyu’s finally back to normal: “Like you did before Father disappeared…”
Welp, there you go. Go find some tsunderekko with daddy issues, insult her boobs and she’s all over you. She’ll make you borscht out of love. Thanks anime!
In other developments, some loli just arrived with a giant copper doll and proceeds to dominate Hana.
I guess she’s the next big, bad boss. Oh boy.
