Mayo Chiki! – 11
The ball has finally started rolling, and there seems to be nothing in its way to stop it. Come to think of it, there’s only one episode left! For those of you who are following my posts, there has been only one thing I’ve wanted for a while now. And with where things are heading, I don’t think I’m going to be disappointed!
However, that’s all speculation until next week. At this point in time, it’s hard to watch how awkward things are between Jirou and Subaru. That is, until a little bit of alcohol is thrown into the mix. Not only is Subaru a complete lightweight, but it seems she’s the type of girl who gets turned on as she gets drunk. At times, it still baffles me how Jirou doesn’t understand just how lucky he is.
Even when he’s getting into situations that most guys only dream about getting into, it’s breaks my heart to watch him misread the situation and not take the opportunity he’s been given. Especially when the one giving him all this leeway possibly has feelings for him as well! Ever since Kanade let these types of looks slip out, I’ve been questioning whether or not she has feelings for him. Paired with all the times she’s taken the opportunity to hold him down in a certain position, there has to be some kind of feeling there!
But when Jirou actually did something to get out of Kanade’s grasp, I think I may have been just as surprised as her. It’s a little strange to say, but maybe she’s finally ready to give up on Jirou? If this were the case, then the only problem that’s left before my personal preference is achieved is that Subaru is still pretending to be a guy — which could end up being an insolvable problem had the bigest twist of the series not occurred.
As soon as Nagare relieved Subaru of her position, I was trying to remember the penalty that she’d face if anyone found out about her true gender. Seeing how his explanation didn’t involve any sort of punishment other than Subaru not being a butler anymore, I can only hope that we might see a female Subaru from here on out.
P.S. I know that the previews have always been a little dirty but this week’s takes the cake in being one of the dirtier ones. You always need to have mayonnaise on takoyaki (octopus balls) — and make sure you do it right.
