Kimi to Boku. – 08
「日給ヒーロー／先輩と僕。」 (Nikkyuu Hiiroo / Senpai to Boku.)
“Daily Wage Hero / Senpai and I.”
Unlike most shows in this genre where things can grow stale after watching the same characters, do the same things, with the same people, the same way, Kimi to Boku manages to shift things up every few weeks, keeping things pretty original.
While it’s take on making a manga isn’t as polished like Bakuman, it was still pretty funny to see how different each person’s view on a single story was. Be it from lack of skill or a change in heart, I was a little shocked to watch a hero’s story slowly morph into something about trying to capture the picture of youth. The best part though, had to be when Chizuru revealed his page for their collaboration manga. Like I said a few episodes back, I had this feeling that he had feelings for Masaki. And even though he tried to hide it back then, a scene like this speaks volumes about what he really feels.
On the other hand, I wasn’t too impressed with Ryunosuke’s story. While it was fun to see our main cast of characters be put into ridiculous situations (I love the Super Sentai Series), it wasn’t really doing it for me. Not only did Yuuki’s less than envious personality traits stick out to the point where he almost came off as annoying, but I would prefer not to see anything that reinforces the notion that Shun should be a girl. I’ve finally come to accept him as a very nice guy, and I want to keep it that way.
