Kimi to Boku 2 Episodes 9 & 10

Mix Juice


Hullo, Alex covering for Liam since he’s moving house and that lot…and Alex kinda needed to post an anime post before the super scary Mimi comes after him.

Here we have a rather interesting flick back to the comedy styled routines of Season 1, and whilst it was by no means a bad outing, it didn’t really match up to the better jokes in the show, and some of the jokes were pretty cringeworthy.

It was a nice attempt at showing what it’s like for a male teenager to get a job, since I know that I have a lot of the same problems Yuuki has. But if it wanted to be serious, the jokes weren’t neccessary. A nice try, but nothing spectacular and one of the average episodes of the franchise.

What do you get when a good show talks about it’s best subject? I’d imagine you’d get an episode similar to this one, to be honest. The comedy takes a back seat and lets the story go back to the Chizuru and Mary pairing, which I find to be really cute whilst being amazingly well done.

Ultimately, i’m wondering if it’s a playful jab at the “You can’t pick who you love” scenario, as the characters go through their own heartfelt problems, and basically picking up where it left off; with Chizuru confessing to Mary and Mary avoiding him ever since.

I don’t know what it is about this show, and I havn’t put my finger on it, but the way it handles relationships between characters is brilliant. Not only that, but it’s a step ahead of everything else, handling a relationship from a male perspective, and doing a damn good job of being realistic whilst it’s at it.  I reckon it’ll be a long time before another show provides a male point-of-view romance that can rival Kimi to Boku’s latest scenario, and judging from the preview, it looks like this theme will carry the show to it’s end.

  1. I’ve absolutely loved that ‘summer beach’ imagery they’ve been using to accompany Chizuru’s interactions with Mary, I think that’s just worked really well to convey the mood and show what’s going on in Chizuru’s head.
