How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love the thought of how thou cherish me,
Shielding my body from iniquity.
I love thee to the breadth and depth and height
My soul can reach, when hiding out of sight
I follow thee through alleyways to reach
The site of thy glorious victory.
I love thee for thy unrivaled wisdom,
Surpassed by naught but thy humility.
I love thee for the way thou hast no friends—
Thou art mine, mine alone, untill the end.
Thy lips speak truth; thine eyes betray a glint
Of steadfast lovingkindness thou dost send,
Thy loyalty unquestioned by thy friends.
I love thee in the silent dark of night—
Take me and use me, to thy heart’s delight!
My heart flutters; unbridled passion known.
Draw out my heart, and take it as thy own.
— Hare Menjou
Knowing How to Get Ahead
If only Shuu had half the charisma of our villains.
This is the guy who also asked about Shuu, “Is it wrong to want to get to know the person you’re in love with?” Now, of course, he is a much more worthy rival for Hare than Inori is. But they’re both too good for Shuu.
I Don’t Care
I don’t care about Shuu. I don’t care about Inori. I don’t care about this kid who died. Lots of screaming and dramatic music aren’t going to help, they’re only going to make me laugh. I can’t stand this show in general. But hey, it’s the most fun of anything I’m watching (with the occasional exception of Penguindrum) to write about, so I’ll stick with it.
