WELP SUB HAS BEEN ABANDONED FOR TEXT

No. 6 ep7. WELL THAT WAS CERTAINLY A VERY HETEROSEXUAL EPISODE.






And then in the grand tradition of heterosexual dudes everywhere, they beat each other up and talk honestly about their ~feelings~.

Nezumi is sort of the cutest little muffin that ever was, ngl. SHION AGREES.

SHION AGREES WITH SOMEWHAT TERRIFYING INTENSITY. \:D/

Shion will throw a mug at the first person who disagrees.

Okay, I have to know: I did chase this down, and you were right about my liking it very much indeed -- only at some point, I think around Episode 4, I started to think that I should get somebody to tell me whether Shion's hapless, puppy-like innocence was going to wear off any time soon. And I put it aside until I could get said advice, and then forgot to ask.

So I'm asking now. Because if he's going to stop with the lovable dorkiness, I totally want to catch up with the series. If he isn't, though, I may need to wait until more of the series is out. I have every confidence that he's going to buy a clue eventually -- he's wicked smart, after all -- but I'll be more comfortable when I have a sense of precisely when it's going to happen.

Hmm, depends on how you look at it. The point behind Shion's sweet adorkableness is contrast - b/c you slowly learn that he is also fucking terrifying. He's still been pretty adorkable up unto this point, but there's the growing sense of unease that the boy is just not right.

(Also, things should start to get really gruesome in the next couple of episodes, based on what I know of the novel storyline, and good luck trying to preserve his innocence in the face of that...)

Thanks. That's useful to know: possibly my optimum strategy is to wait until we're up to episode 12 or so, and then catch up all in a rush.

I do know what you mean about the adorkable-layered-over-terrifying. And I respect it on an artistic level, but when it comes to pure id-driven emotional involvement I always find the adorkable part offputting. It's not quite the dreaded embarrassment squick, but I suspect it of being related to that; it's the same sort of feeling. Whatever it is, though, I wish it would go away: the adorkable trope is common enough that having to run away from it is painfully limiting.

THAT KISS. I LOVE NUMBER 6 SO MUCH. If it doesn't have a happy ending, it's gonna kill me.
