Demi-chan wa Kataritai – 03
「サキュバスさんはいい大人」 (Sakyubasu-san wa Iiotona)
“Succubus-san Is a Real Adult”
Things keep on chugging along strong with this third episode of Demi-chan!
The Life of a Succubus
There was something really charming about how the show handled its introduction and personalization of Satou Sakie (Hikasa Yoko). At first glance, you might think that the life of a succubus would be one of fun and luxury with their ability to charm anyone with nearly no effort, but in reality it looks like the social repercussions of having the power to cause intense sexual desire in others is nearly as bad ( or worse) than the life of a Dullahan. You can’t touch anyone of the opposite sex without worrying about them turning into deviant, you’re stuck living out in the boonies in a crummy house since you can’t live in affordable housing that has lots of people in close quarters, and the worst of it all is probably the simple fact you’re not allowed to nap anywhere for fear of causing other people to have wet dreams. Also, it looks like you’re not even allowed to wear nice (note I said nice and not even trendy) clothing for fear of attracting attention and causing problem number one from occurring over and over. And don’t even get me started on the problems you’d have with romance, especially if you’re a romantic looking for some “true” love when you have no idea whether or not someone is really into you or just into you because of your powers. Overall, the life of a Succubus sounds pretty god awful if you ask me.
Luckily, Satou-sensei manages to keep a positive outlook on life even though she’s been dealt a pretty awful hand. Toss in that adorable look of hers when she’s knocking back a nice cold beer at night and the strong face she puts up at school and you have another character who adds a ton of charm to this already charming show.
More Questions about Vampires
As energetic as Hikari is, I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of seeing her get embarrassed around Takahashi when he ends up asking her questions that involve anything male and female vampires. Something about that shared sense of embarrassment with Hikari combined with Takahashi’s straight face and honest intentions just make for a cute and adorable situation even when the show does something as stupid (but hilarious) as repeat the word sex three times.
Questions about Relationships and Looking Ahead
While Hikari and Takahashi might have something special, it looks like Satou-sensei and Kyouko might be able to give them a run for their money. Seeing two girls just discuss their aspirations for romance is cute, but the added bonus of getting to hear Satou-sensei’s very contrasting inner (and sometimes verbal) monologue is like icing on the cake I didn’t even realize we were eating.
Anyways, I’ll cut things here before the post gets too long. See you guys next week where it looks like Yuki-onna-chan is finally going to get some time to show us just what’s on her mind. See you then!
