Ladies vs Butlers! #08 — Death by Chocolate

February 23rd, 2010

 

What a lightweight.

Impressions:

Dare I say that this was one of the nicest episodes of this show to date? I think I do. It’s still not going to win any awards or suddenly become… you know… recommendable, but at least so far as this episode went, it was quite enjoyable. A lot of that had to do with the relative dearth of fanservice this week, limited to a couple quick topless Drill shots (which believe me, are old news to everybody within 50 miles of her by this point) and two sets of of her moaning, one of which ended obviously with the drunk passing out, while the other ended in chess. This is the first time I’ve seen a sex gag end in chess. That’s got to count for something.

It was a drill episode through and through. She dragged Hino off to be her personal escort for summer vacation and her entire household (including her father) immediately started trying to hook them off. He got drunk off of chocolate and made a move on her before passing out, and then saved her when she almost drowned to finally get his kiss reward. It’s a little annoying, though expected, that they seem to be moving into a mutual angsty Tomomi vs Drill finale, but we’ll see how next week’s date with Tomomi goes and if she matches Drill’s rationalized cheek kiss or if she just pins him down and jams her tongue town his throat.

Tomomi strikes back.

    Aroduc: Watches series so we don’t have to.

    “jams her tongue down his throat”

    That’s so erotic Aroduc. Adding that to your repertoire would clash with you being saracastic. ^^;

    aroduc loves this series, but he won’t admit it

  • Rawr says:

    The man won’t fess up to to liking a lot of series. I remember him doing a tsundere gag once (or was that sage? can’t remember). Still, this series definitely isn’t as criminally bad as aroduc makes it (and a lot of other series) sound.

  • Yue says:

    So, he’s like an escaped safari animal with a chunk of bacon his mouth who doesn’t want getting caught feasting on the delicious morsel. ^^;

  • Aroduc says:

    Pfft. When it has Kiddy Girl and Railgun playing cleanup, every show gets just a little more enjoyable.

  • queenie says:

    Probably the best episode for the series so far. :)
    Officially made me a DrillxButler fan. (Tomomi is hilarious but still…the girls a tad…off I gotta say). Lets see if the next ep. goes down in the fanservice dept. too and place bets on it.

    Tomomi counter attack…oh boy.
    (And was that really a kiss on the cheek? I couldn’t tell honestly… And hmmm…is Hino actually royalty? That’s apparently what this episodes implying.)

  • Shard says:

    Given the nature of the show, I wouldn’t expect the fanservice to stay as low as this episode’s. Still, a very nice episode in that it actually advanced the “plot” instead of introducing yet another minor character (the folks over at Railgun should take a note from that).

    On top of all that, the episode was decent and sets up for next week’s nicely. Let’s hope it’s as good as this one was.
