Apparently this season was saving its best for last. I really enjoyed this episode!
Now, it does have a fairly generic setup. Rich girl gets a magical boyfriend. And the house of Ayakashi reminds me of Otome Youkai Zakuro.
But, I’m happy to overlook this, because Ririchiyo and Soushi have this great chemistry between them. Alone, they would each be obnoxious. Ririchiyo is a jerk, and Soushi is fawning and sparkly. But they play off each other to become quite funny. Ririchiyo will say something insulting or tell Soushi to get lost, and Soushi will comment on how wonderful she is. I was laughing quite a lot during this episode, although I don’t think this is the kind of humor that appeals to everyone. I’m also a bit concerned the humor will lose its appeal as the two characters become more familiar with each other.
The show also seems to have an interesting setting. I’m looking forward to figuring out more about what’s going on with the apartment building.
And this show knows how to do fanservice right! I hate it when shows just have a beach episode or a bath episode where they take everyone’s clothes off. It’s boring and lazy. I greatly prefer Inu x Boku’s approach: leave Ririchiro’s button unbuckled, have Soushi lick her feet, show Ririchiro in her pajamas.
Assuming I like the next episode, I’ll probably blog this.
