This week’s episode of Kimi to Boku took a pretty strange turn. Instead of filling me up with the usual happy go-lucky feelings I’ve come to expect, I was getting so angry that I was ready to shove my fist through my monitor to smack some sense into Yuuki and Chizuru.
Since episode one, it’s been pretty clear that Yuuki and Chizuru love to poke fun at Kaname’s serious attitude. Be it a small joke or a personal attack right in front of his face; the sky’s the limit for the two. However, their usual jokes at Kaname’s expense this week were starting to make my blood boil. To put things in perspective, it’s quite amazing how Kaname managed to hold the reins over the student council while also managing his class’s preparations for the culture festival without going crazy. But throw in a pair of troublemakers who were basically pushing all the wrong buttons at all the wrong times and I’m surprised that Kaname was able to keep his composure for so long.
To sum everything up, what was probably supposed to be a really funny episode probably ended up raising my blood pressure a few points. I’m probably not the person that this episode was catered toward, since I still don’t see the humor in screwing around with someone who’s stressed out. I’m also a firm believer in supporting those who are giving something absolutely everything they’ve got and shoving those who get in their way off a cliff.
However, even with all this negativity flowing about, there was still something that I did enjoy. That “something” would be how spot on the writers were about how hard you can fail at using a copy machine. Starting with placing Yuuki and Chizuru placing the paper down the wrong way, it was amazing how the joke didn’t stop and continued straight into the realm of paper orientation. While 99% of the world probably didn’t find it as funny as I did, I was satisfied knowing that the two were outsmarted by a simple copy machine. Serves them right!
