I am such a sucker for megane girls. I mean, a maid costume with spectacles? That’s impossibly hot.
I was thinking about whether to post a pure episode summary, but I think that it is becoming harder and harder for me to do that. So, since I am so rusty at blogging, I might as well try something easier: which is to tell you what the highlights are during my viewing of the show. I actually tried to get my wife to co-write too, but she is lazy as usual. I will gladly accept any suggestions to get that woman to write for the blog!
I am in my default look. Press 1 for yaoi overtones, press 2 for gay and press 3 to bishify me.
I do not know about you, but one of my key qualms about shoujo series is the personification of “elite” schools. It’s almost like Japanese animation companies hate elite schools because I seldom see elite schools in a good light. It’s either that they are so superficial and arrogant, or that they beat up delinquent students in the name of justice. Seriously? Why is there such a stereotype? Is there any Japanophile that can educate me on this?
This will become more frequent later on. Is it a good or bad thing.
Anyway, this week’s episode is about Misaki resolving a conflict with Miyabigaoko academy, a school housing mostly rich kids. One of Seika’s students hit a student from Miyabigaoko as they were insulted, and the student demanded a full unreserved apology. As they went to the school, they manage to antagonize the student more. In the end, the student council president of Miyabigaoko came over to dissipate the situation, or is he? On the other hand, Misaki is still thinking about the kiss Usui gave in Episode 6.
O.M.G. Usui’s “sexiness” knows no bounds
Seriously? How come I do not remember this fanservice shot above from the manga? Honestly, my first response was 2 girls and a cup. Don’t ask why, the clip still traumatizes me despite knowing that it is all fake. That said, the response of Misaki is classic.
The typical bishified Usui
This was a scene of Usui’s triumph in chess against that arrogant elite student. I almost feel like making a motivational poster with the title “Just as planned.”
The fake gentleman – only 50 cents.
When the student president from Miyabigaoko came over, my first impression is how fake he is. In fact, I actually like his real self because it feels more maliciously delicious. I am always very appreciative of the “nice guy outside, evil guy inside” type of character because it is always a fine line between being cheesy to totally awesome. Right now, I still do not have a feel for it, but it has not reached cheesy levels. Well, I am sure it will be eventually, but a blogger can dream.
And you are stupid
Seriously, you cannot even fathom the interest of Usui from all his actions. It’s once again my pet peeve as with Special A. Why are the female leads always so slow on the uptake? It’s like they are all intelligent but they have the sensitivity of a mule.
O, Misaki is lesbian
You know, this scene will not feel out of place in a comedy shoujo-ai series. Kaichou wa Harem-sama sequel?
Hmmm. I don’t even know where to start
Honestly, I will actually be really keen to watch the shoujo ai version of this series. Usui can be a female too… Ok, that is so wrong on many levels that I burned my brain on it. For Episode 7, my highlight is really the Usui kissing because that is the only scene that made me laugh out loud. Sadly, Kaichou wa Maid-sama is trudging along very slowly. I am not sure if it is the presentation style or something else. It is really average and it puzzles me. Sigh.
