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.

    I agree, the 2nd half was very dull to watch. Bring back marrrry!

    I don’t know what you’re talking about. The second half of the episode was hilarious.

    Aw. I was laughing my ass off every time Shun popped up as a different female trope.

      I did to and felt bad for the poor guy the whole time! He’s just a nice hair cut but then Ryunosuke’s interpretation on his roll in the group had me in stitches.

    Sigh… And the wonderful train of innocent high school romance has been derailed…

    First half: pretty funny. Second half: pretty boring.

    This was, actually, the first Kimi to Boku episode that I didn’t like (because the second half was crap).

    But Shun is the girl of the group. It was inevitable that others would picture him in the female roles. Even Chizuru mistook him for a girl when he first saw Shun.

    I found the second half more hilarious than the first, honestly. Getting some one else’s take on the group’s dynamics was maybe even better than watching them interact with each other as usual.

    as with what seems a majority on this episode, first half was great while the second half just didn’t have the feel. It was still funny at times but just wasn’t my cup of tea.
