Another reason why they never have Prince Charming in a dark horse package
It is as though Lupus’ hate-filled entry about the suspension of logic and reality (which I do feel is like a Star Wars fan complaining that Princess Leia’s hand posture is 5 cm away from the appropriate position) has made Production IG realize something. It should not try to push the political theme of the show too much. Of course, it will always screw up because it does not follow realism, despite the fact that the whole apolitically environment is hardly an attempt to make it wholly realistic.
Nonetheless, that is just part of the reason why I watch Library War. I like romance, and I particularly like it when the romance is so cute that it makes me squeal (no, I refuse any comment about a guy squealing is fricking dumb and gay). Many guys are generally closet shoujo fans that will squeal at the romance. Please stop adhering to the proper alpha male norms of society.
Anyway, you must be wondering why I am writing in a rather different way compared to my normal episodic reviews (standard fare of summary + thoughts, albeit in a very detailed or long winded way). The raw I have seems to suffer from an inherent disorder of displaying the Japanese subs for every single comment. Due to my slightly obsessive compulsive behavior to make sure screenshots do not have text, I eventually went into piss-mode, and found another raw (Thanks Zero Raws). Needless to say, my patience was thin and I decided to stop writing properly for this episode.
It is likely that whatever lurks below is a bunch of random euphemisms that do not make sense to anyone. A pity for most though, I am an inferior good compared to the Jihader since I dislike the army. I lack hate that is abundant in the writing of Calawain and Crusader.
Postmortem edit: It turns out that I just cannot blog like them. I prefer my Episodic summary + thoughts style, even though the summary is much shorter as getting back into the writing groove takes time. Whatever the case, Old school rocks.
This episode continues on the revelation that Dojo is in fact Kasahara’s prince. Kasahara feels extremely awkward after the realization. Kasahara and Tezuka thought that she is troubled due to the exam, which has a 50% fail rate. Tezuka, on the other hand, is worried about the practical test (dealing with kids for story telling) as he horrendously sucks with children. While Kasahara blushes her way to oblivion, Dojo worries whether he is being hated.
Dojo is curious why Kasahara continues to avoid him and he is clearly disturbed. Tezuka also got help from Shibasaki on dealing with children. Dojo decides to make notes for Kasahara, and thought that Kasahara hates him. Kasahara eventually decides to “quit” the Library, since the thought of Dojo is distracting her from studying. A suspicious-looking Dojo sneaked into the female dormitory to pass her the notes secretly. However, he is stopped by Kasahara and the book slipped out of his coat.
We also realize that the insignia on their badges symbolizes a flower loved by Inamine’s wife. The meaning of the flowers is one of working in adversity. In the exam, Kasahara manages to scrape through the written exam, but was one of the top scorers in the practical exam due to her creativity. Shibasaki and Tezuka also passed. In the end, Kasahara tells Dojo that she is no longer trying to chase her prince, but to earn the respect of Dojo.
I realize that being a sucker in romance, I wish that the romance between the two can be more distinct. So, without further ado, let me go on with my own story of Episode 9. For those who cannot stand cheesy B-grade love stories, do not advance further.
What should I do? My parents didn’t want me to go into the Library Task Force because it will be that dangerous with all the stereotypes of the Library member’s size: meeting a small person and falling in love with him. My mom already made a mistake, she says, with father. She doesn’t want me to be the same.
I mean, Tezuka is big for sure. He is like the Tower that will never tumble! Moreover, he thinks that Shibasaki is evil. That means he must be good. Yet, I am in love with Dojo, of all people, the smallest man in the Task Force.
Well, I should just get my beloved Dojo. Considering the amount of screentime between Shibasaki and Tezuka, it is a blatant attempt by the directors for us to pair the two up. Since I am the main actress, I couldn’t care less. Nonetheless, I do not want to be on her receiving end. That woman, you never know what she is thinking of.
