Somewhere, somehow, this show is probably gonna be popular thanks to its Flame Haze/Taiga hybrid tsundere for the female lead. Somewhere, somehow, non sequitur shit like the constant references to the heroines’ flat chests and Ookami’s cat gloves are probably considered top comedy.
Last and definitely least, we have a pathetic boy lead who’s literally scared of stares. His only merit is stalking the poor girl (hey, kinda like Edward!) and being a dumb meat shield. Forget the fact that he’s utterly average in every respect and forget the utter absence of any chemistry between him and the girl even from the outset. Since he took a pipe to the back for her, it means raburabu! It must be easy to take a hit to the back though when you have no spine whatsoever.
Life is full of distractions. Between the World Cup, the NBA finals, finding a cheap apartment in San Francisco, summer classes and so on, I haven’t really bothered with blogging. To be honest anyway, while there are good shows this season, I’m not dying to watch any of them when things get hectic around me; after eight hours on campus and another hour on the goddamn 405, I just want to sleep. Shrug. Let’s get to the last anime Isaw.
Maid-sama! is still rolling along and I think this is a mistake.
I decided to finish a few winter anime I had stopped watching during the hiatus, one of them being Ookami Kakushi. For a brief second, the anime had my complete attention, but (of course) Hiroshi was merely having a nightmare.
Forgive this rambling post. I just go into one of those binge cravings for Japanese live dramas every once in a while, and after watching a particularly lame one last night, I felt compelled to write about it.
