Mayo Chiki! #04 — Situational Modesty

July 28th, 2011


Wasn’t she screaming about him walking in on her just a couple episodes ago? 


Honestly, I would have rather watched Kureha fight bears than more of the generic Jirou/Konoe nonsense. These kinds of shows usually can’t wait to introduce every single character in the initial episodes in a spastic explosion of bad archetypes. This one seems like it’s going to drill Konoe into everybody’s skulls before moving on, but nothing they’re doing with her is beyond the token cliches, right down to convenient flashbacks to instantly create a bond out of nowhere. Japan really needs to get over its obsession with flashbacks and learn to keep the story in the now. Any time you have to fabricate crap out of nowhere you’re doing something horribly wrong.

Jirou’s been getting more lame too. Not that he ever had a personality beyond nosebleeds and passing out whenever he gets an erection, but he’s just getting more bland while every other character is getting more and more eager to jump his bones. He’s not getting any points for cowering in fear after Kanade kissed him at the end either. That’s still a step backwards from her manhandling his junk in episode 1 though and not too far away from slobbering all over apple for him this week, so… uh, however you want to take that. The maid competition also petered out pretty quickly when Jirou picked up… a slight fever a vehicle for bad overfly dramatic flashbacks and spatial distortions. He should get some kind of medal for falling backwards and ending up down a hill, thirty feet away, and not the slightest bit ruffled. Either that or demerits for breaking the laws of physics.


A new harem member, plus drag.

5 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

  • jingoi says:

    Kinjirō Miyamae? Yukinari Sakamachi?
    Was anyone else annoying by Kureha at the start of her abuse of Jirou?

  • Wilfriback says:

    A kung-Fu bear, that is enough reason to watch this episode.

  • Zilla says:

    Aroduc, I’ve been wondering this for a while, but are you a masochist or something? While I can appreciate the “can’t avert your eyes from a trainwreck” effect, to actually go so far as blogging multiple trainwrecks at once…unfathomable.

  • satsu says:

    I would rather praise something awfully bad than to criticize something good.
