So as I mentioned in my last post, there has been a change of direction! Indeed the new director who has replaced Kon Chiaki is Kamegaki Hajime. The thing is though, unlike what we previously thought he actually takes over as of episode 24 not 21! You can definitely tell the difference starting with the really bizarre character designs!
Eugene's new look
Lawl. Ready for more? The horrors continue after the jump!
Well, bad news is afoot for Hanasakeru Seishounen: they are going to try to make the show less crappy. The whole reason to watch this show was to laugh at how over the top it is. Less ridiculous mannerisms and less 80s fashion means less laughs out of me. With time of the essence, I present the Hanasakeru Seishounen drinking game. Take a drink every time:
Someone says “Burnsworth” (or rather, “BAANZUWAASU!”)
Kajika compares someone to an animal (“MUSTAFA!”)
Two of Kajika’s love interests look at each other with yaoi-y eyes
That mysterious background song plays during a shocking revelation. You know which one I mean
Someone mentions international intrigue over oil and wealth
Any character’s extremely convoluted genealogy is discussed
Any character’s extremely convoluted name is said in full (“Rumaty” bad, “Rumaty Ihvan di Raginei” good)
A shot consists of a man and a woman that looks more masculine than the man next to her
There is a fade from one character’s face to another character who may or may not be related to the first
Someone yells out a very respectful term for a family member (“CHICHI-UE!”)
There is a still shot of a bishie in front of a floral background
A female character whose character design gives off some serious Glass Mask vibes appears
A sentence contains at least three English words (“purepu sukuuru to bijinesu sukuuru no sukasshu tiimu”)
i'm gonna miss those awful shoulder pads and hairdos
After a long time apart, Kajika gets down to business.
Ok so for reasons unknown this show took like a 3 week break then finally raws began appearing last week so I caught up on 18 an 19. I’m really starting to like Carl (and not because I’m biased towards Fukuyama Jun.) He’s like “but our fathers are enemies!” and Kajika’s all like “BUT I WANT TO BE UR FRIEND!!!11″ and then he’s like…. O///O! *gasps blushes and runs away* So yea I’m totally in for Carl, too bad I already know who Kajika will end up with lol. I mean I liked Li Ren and all but after that gay episode with Rumatie I just can’t take him seriously. I mean in the scene above Kajika’s about to strip him naked and he resists! Well maybe she would have succeeded if it wasn’t for that cockblocking maid.
Najela is a fucking bitch. Everytime I see her stupid face or hear her speak I want to shove a splintered board into her mouth. Why is everyone in Rumatie’s family a fucking annoying little shit? When is this stupid arc gonna end. Need moar Carl! Well Carl is good, but need less of his tranny sisters.
Slapped in the face!
And one more time!
Li Ren and Rumati’s sexual tension rose to improbable levels because Kajika’s been away in that made up arabian country for the last 5 episodes…so they decided to comfort each other. In all seriousness, I’m so sick of this international intrigue over Rumati’s extended family. At least next week Carl gets some screen time. These last 2 episodes were terrible lol. Rumati’s such a stupid annoying brat, he’s worse than Kajika now!
Sigh finally a decent guy comes along....and then...
So I marathoned to catch up to Hanasakeru Oil & Wealth. For those who haven’t been watching this show in hopes that I’d write something about it, I will tell you what you missed. There was Eugene speaking Engrish all over the place to Kajika’s friends Japanese family. Rivalrly between Eugene and Li Ren as always. There were flash backs to Kajika’s grandma and here’s the thick of the plot: Kajika and Rumatie (however you spell that) are cousins. It turns out their grandpa had knocked up Kajika’s grandma and her step-grandpa only married the grandma cause he wanted the baby to have a daddy. Kajika doesn’t yet know this, but Li Ren does. So in one episode Rumatie’s like “LETS GET MARRIED” but Kanjika’s like “shouldn’t we do that after we fall in love?” and I’m like “EW INCEST WTF *throws furniture*”
Thank god I already know who Kajika’s gonna end up with. I do like Carl though and he’s voiced by Fukuyama Jun Not a fan of Mustafagene though. I know he’s like doing a lot for Kajika but his face expression always makes me want to punch him lol.
Tag, you're it.
So the Eugene arc finally ends this week. They went deep into his past and how his mother committed suicide before she turned 20 and Eugene planned to do the same. But according to Kajika he was “waiting for somebody to kill him” so umm she shot his reflection in the mirror? So next time you got a really emo friend or something, just make him walk into a room then point a gun at him and shoot it at the mirror behind him. Instant results overnight! Also Kajika said that while she LOVES Mustafagene, she can’t picture herself marrying him. I mean who would marry a leopard?
