After watching episode two of this series, I conclude that it one of best for this season. Though some think that it is pedophilic (worse being based on only screen caps), I feel that they are either 1) blinded by their own fantasies 2) possess a bad habit to prejudge. But ultimately, they are missing out on a great story if they let this put them off.
If this doesn’t catch your attention, I don’t know what will…
*quoting my thoughts I wrote for animesuki*
Amazing. This series has totally won me over with the second episode. At first I wasn’t sure what to think but now I can be sure why it is labelled humor. Again I say that this type of humor isn’t the “muhahaha” type, but rather a cute and sweet type.
The characters is what is amazing about this series. Murasaki is such an amazing character to say the least (and heck she is only 7 ^^). She is so cute when it comes to things that she doesn’t understand, yet it is in her character to try and come out knowing better. I found it hilarious that she mimiked the whining voice of a girl on TV with the irony is that she was probably the same age as the girl. Murasaki’s maturity level is stunning, which makes her amazingly cute and likable. This rarely comes across for me. Her mature yet naive-childish attitude is an oxymoron that comes hand in hand. Yep, I would want her to be my little sister (ofc I can think of some problems if she were, but heck it sounds fun ^^).
Innocence is bliss
“Don’t touch me, you commoner!”
Shinkurou is also a very interesting character. He seems to have a split personality. The beast we see at the end, I could never imagine was the caring fellow in the morning. I’m sure he has his own reasons and I like the idea that Murasaki is there to help him keep in touch with more sensitive subjects, like violence is not the answer (though I do believe that those punk ass deserved a battering.
The interaction between Murasaki and Shinkurou is like older bro and little sis. But how I wish that I have such a sister . By honestly, their development together, it will be soon before they become inseparable. The bath house scene is about as innocent as it can get, infact, I didn’t even think anything bad without anyone pointing it out, and I have to say that it is a BAD thought to think so. Sheesh…such a beautiful heartwarming scene should not be ruined with bad thoughts.
How can you think anything bad of this?
Murasaki also learned an important lesson this episode. The meaning behind the words “thankyou”. Things got pretty heated up in a row between her and Shinkurou, and this just reminds me the countless times I argued with me sibling. But at the end it is just great to see that their relationship didn’t turn sour (with Murasaki running off in tears or what not) but instead she took the mature route and listened to the voice of reason. Another point which has made me love this series even more.
Learning to say “thankyou” hurts.
The ending was pretty dark but I just can’t wait to see how these two can carry on with their bonding. At this rate I seriously have to pick up the manga.
Just another job.
ps. The comedy with the gothic woman. I lawled HARD
Becareful of the goth lady O.O
PSS. Actually, after posting this entry, I did pick up the manga and has pretty much assured me on how much I love the story. The are only 5 chapters currently so I would urge people who enjoy this series to give it a try ^^.
