Favorite anime of the week(end): Mayo Chiki

I started going through some of the anime on my watch list and I just finished Mayo Chiki. I’m almost finished with Hellsing and I paused Infinite Stratos – to be continued after I complete Hellsing (because Alucard has my soul).

I started Mayo Chiki yesterday and didn’t go to bed until around two. I could have completed it if the laptop hadn’t started freezing then suffered a heatstroke.

How do I describe my satisfaction with Mayo Chiki: I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!

I just found everything to be great about this series; the comedy, the hilarious misunderstandings. The comedy. The characters were absolutely amazing – I liked all of them.

Mayo Chiki is the story of Konoe Subaru, Suzutsuki Kanade’s butler, whose true identity as a girl is discovered by Sakamoto Kinjirou – and their attempts to keep that a secret from Subaru’s fangirls and schoolmates.

I actually remember the reference to it that was made in Haganai – which is why I jotted it down on my watch list – and I’m a little sad that there is no second season. I’m a little satisfied with the ending, but I wanted more Subaru x Jirou moments (I shipped these two from the very beginning) because the romance wasn’t really that strong (and that’s what I live for).

KYAA~!! *flails*

*flails*

Subaru’s boldness actually surprised me a lot as the show progressed – and probably if she never kissed Jirou, he’d still be oblivious to the fact that she loves likes him. I’m still not sure if Suzutsuki has feelings for Jirou because she’s such a tease. But maybe she put aside her feelings for him to give Subaru the upper hand – I’m not sure. Probably she doesn’t like him.

Mayo Chiki 1Mayo Chiki 2I just couldn’t understand how Jirou unbuttoned girls’ clothes so effortlessly.

Another thing I realized while watching this…is The Ring a really popular horror film in Japan?

Mayo Chiki - the ringI’ve seen quite a few anime that had The Ring references – I specifically remember one in Yuru Yuri. And that’s cool because The Ring is one of my favorites too (then Insidiuous, then Sinister…).

Oh look, it's the boy from the Grudge...

Oh look, it’s the boy from the Grudge…o.o

How Usami is comfortable around these ghosts, I can never understand but I admire her courage in not fearing these ghosts that are supposed to be exacting revenge on every and anyone who comes into contact with them.

Mayo Chiki When it comes to picking my favorite character, I’m torn between these two. I really love them – especially Kurahe. How Jirou is still alive without several broken bones, I cannot understand – his strength is really something special.

I really loved this.  It was a cute, little romance comedy even though at some points I felt that the story was lacking but that’s fine because it didn’t take away from how much I enjoyed it. Every episode had me laughing – episode nine almost killed me and I don’t know why because the part that slayed me wasn’t even that funny but it did.

Yes, so now that that’s over with I shall return to Hellsing.

    Wait, Konoe Subaru was pretending to be a guy? That was doomed to fail xD I just googled the pictures, there is no way you would mistake her gender =)

    Which Hellsing are you watching, OVA or TV?

      I don’t know why in anime that type of disguise is always so believable xD

      I finished the TV series, I’m watching the OVA episodes now 🙂

        After you finish OVA, take 30 minutes to watch Hellsing: The Dawn. Fifteen years old arrogant Walter, that is just awesome =)
