「怠るな 職場の安全 身の安全」 (Okotaru na Shokuba no Anzen Mi no Anzen)
“Neglect, Safety of the Workplace, Personal Safety”

Just what kind of monstrous size are we talking here, Lucy?!

For all of you who were wondering about the delay this week, it seems Servant x Service is undergoing broadcast changes, so this week’s episode was released yesterday while next week’s will broadcast on Friday. I have no idea what the final word is on whether or not this is temporary, but meta is as meta does, so on to what really matters!

After last week’s imouto hurricane, I was a bit worried that Touko would be stealing the show from this point on. Luckily that wasn’t really the case, and though she’s present here too, my favorite parts of this episode are definitely thanks to Lucy and Hasebe, and especially due to their chemistry together. Lucy is really fun to watch; she’s that somewhat stereotypical ditz who’s always trying to be serious, but that doesn’t make her any less charming. Coupled with Hasebe’s inappropriate but earnest personality, she’s even more of a blast to laugh at, especially when she goes around doing things as hilariously as she does. Whether it’s bra hooks that break in the middle of work (Sweet Hylia, she got to go home with that? I wish), her huge fear of thunder, or her ability to brush Hasebe’s sexual harrassment off like it never happened, this is good comedic material all around.

Even more interesting, if somewhat off, is Hasebe himself. I’m constantly on the fence between calling him a jerk and a genuinely good (but opportunistic) guy, and I can see the sparks between him and Lucy so obviously it’s almost an insult to my intelligence. He’s still that guy you can’t help but hate at work for being so awesome (c’mon, ventriloquism and sign language and unexpected thoughtfulness/head patting??) but he’s also definitely more interested in Lucy than in just her email address, especially considering how he always manages to distract himself from getting it. I also like that even though he can be an ass (believe me, sexual harrassment at work can land you in a world of “I can’t believe I have to do this SekuHara training again” or worse, even of it’s in good fun with friends), he’s pretty open about it and aware of what a pain he’s being. I don’t necessarily like that sort of person, but I can definitely appreciate the earnestness of that depiction; people like Hasebe definitely exist, and they can grate in more ways than one when dealing with them directly. However, in the world of SxS, he’s definitely one of my favorite personas, and when coupled with Ichimiya-senpai (you go sir, punching your kouhai when required, no questions asked) or Lucy, I’m finally finding it hard not to laugh in earnest.

    I find your lack of Touko love disturbing.

    That aside, Hasebe and Lucy are excellent together. Their dynamic is truly a joy to watch.

    and that third girl continues to be so plain and boring that her presence was pretty non-existent. Everyone overshadowed her in her scenes. Hopefully she gets more interesting so I can at least remember her name.

    Ichimiya and Chiyaha were also great.

      I find your love of Touka disturbing.

    This show is like watching “Parks and Recreation” but in a more active department of government.

    I’m hoping that Ichimaya snaps and murders Touko, hiding her corpse in that storage room. Best episode ever!

    I really want Lucy and Hasebe end up being together!!

    • July 22, 2013 at 2:45 ammistress_kisara

      I think that’s most of us ^_^

    Can’t tell if a genius good guy or just a lazy jerk.

    And yes, Touko should die in a fire. Or at least get hit by lightning.

      Just like Bill Gates said “I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.” ‘True’ Lazy people are Genius.

    Hasebe the best! Lucy’s ahoge is the best too! On par with Yusa Emi’s ahoge!

    • July 22, 2013 at 3:56 amMgMaster

      Hasebe wouldn’t be getting off that easily with a co-worker like Emi.Although he’d probably still tease her :D

      E-Cup :3

      • July 22, 2013 at 7:24 amdd

        Definitely > F.

  • July 22, 2013 at 4:54 amtsukioniisan

    I swear I heard her say “F”. But Chihaya hinted that it was J before. This is bothering me. lol

    • July 22, 2013 at 5:53 amechykr

      Last episode, Chihaya deduced just by her sight alone that it was an F. But was stunned when Lucy felt “relieved” that she thought it was a “small” cup size as F, suggesting an even larger size.

      Hasebe’s reaction probably more than confirms it.

      I’d wager she’s an H.

      • July 22, 2013 at 6:35 amFuzzy

        ‘J’-League? ‘W’-orld Cup??!?

  • July 22, 2013 at 5:51 amechykr

    Lucy is so cute.

    But she’s so bothered by her unusual name that she’s actually more offended by Hasebe calling her by her abbreviated name than his blatant sexual harassment concerning her humongous cup size.

    She should seriously ask Chihaya to help her with her choice of clothing, let alone undergarments which clearly don’t fit.

    • July 22, 2013 at 8:32 amRadiosonde

      I notice that in this episode, Lucy (abbreviated) stopped lashing out at Hasebe whenever he calls her Lucy. I think she just kind of gave up on dealing with Hasebe. And asking Chihaya to help with her clothing is a recipe for disaster. Chihaya will definitely choose those revealing ‘cosplay’-like clothes.

    • July 22, 2013 at 12:55 pmbearzerger

      I’m just waiting for the inevitable revelation that it was Hasebe’s father who allowed Lucy’s parents to name her as they did. You just know it’s going to happen.

  • July 22, 2013 at 3:11 pmleatherhead333

    Hasebe is so cool. One of those pervy lazy guys that is a closet genius. I wish i could be like him………well expect for the pervert part since in real life he’d probably be in jail now xD.

  • July 22, 2013 at 11:34 pmendlessme

    Another enjoyable episode. I think I am liking Hasebe more and more after every episode.

  • July 23, 2013 at 8:59 amGinobi666

    The review, the comments and all that crap is good and all….. but it doesnt answer the main question of the episode……


    • July 23, 2013 at 10:13 pmTez

      Yeah that’s where Deadman Wonderland shined. Got that question out of the way in the first episode
