die chiaki die [Jun. 1st, 2011|08:11 pm]

I think I'm starting to understand some of wednesday_10_00's great dislike of Chiaki. I tried to watch episode 6 of Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi and couldn't get through it. Chiaki is so worthless and so annoying and so needing to be stabbed to death and free Hatori so that he can fall in love with someone else (who'd by definition have more worth as Chiaki is so worthless), I had to stop watching before I blew a fuse. Wow, that character really has no redeeming qualities. Also, he's way too whiny and childish. >_< I am skipping any further episodes featuring these characters.

Episode 7 was like a breath of fresh air. Ritsu being all blushing and confused and really trying to keep Takano at a distance and failing! And trying really hard at work! And being his father's son thrown in his face again! Takano being a bit mean then forcing Ritsu to accept his help then kissing him as he's all seriously working made me laugh. Also, Takano laughing at Ritsu re: being his father's son....So typical. So Takano. I suppose if Takano wasn't in love with Ritsu someone like Yokozawa really would suit him.

Speaking of which, I love the discussions about who is seme in the Takano/Yokozawa fling. I...really don't care. Plus, why does someone have to be "seme?" Couldn't they have just blown each other or did hand jobs or something? That's all sex, right? Though as this is BL, I suppose anal is really the only sex.

Speaking of which, I am highly amused at how Takano and Ritsu continue to NOT have sex in the anime. I don't have my manga handy, but surely they've had sex already at this point?

Episode 8 made me like Kisa a bit again. He's cute. And I assume they will cut his moping down to a tolerable level in order to fit into the anime, so I look forward to watching this couple more.

I love the manga but haven't seen the anime yet. :D Not quite sure what's stopping me, but...

AHAHA, so true.

Just skip the Chiaki/Hatori episodes and all will be good. Seriously. Especially the OVA with Ritsu and Takano in high school. ♥

So glad I'm not alone in my hate of Chiaki! Nobody else I know seems to care about him one way or the other.

(I really enjoyed the Kisa episode, too. I liked it a lot more than I remember liking the manga chapter.)

I don't have my manga handy, but surely they've had sex already at this point?

I'm at work, so I can't check for sure, but I don't think so. Their first time was when Ritsu was drunk (so he doesn't remember--or refuses to remember? XD--the next morning).

I don't understand why everyone doesn't hate Chiaki. I like my clueless tsundere-ish uke characters as much as the next fangirl, but he is so beyond the pale I started yelling at the TV. Which is why I stopped watching the episode.

In the manga I liked the Kisa story in the beginning very much. His insecurities just dragged a bit for me after a while. I assume there will not be the time to devote in the anime, which is why I hope to continue enjoying Kisa's story throughout the anime.

Re: first time sex as adults....Oh yeah...I guess I just got used to them having sex all the time in the manga it felt odd that they weren't having sex in the anime as well....

Ahaha... you make me so happy I didn't watch the second couple's episodes.

I'm still debating if I should watch the third couple or not... But at least I have a hell lot more interest in watching them than the second one.

Yup, like what wednesday_10_00 said, their "first time" was when Ritsu got drunk (not sure which chapter in the manga... but it was in the 3rd drama CD for sure).

I'm really interested to see the anime version of that little "stairs" scene when Takano comes to the rescue ^^

You are so smart re: Chiaki/Hatori!

I think you can take or leave Kisa/Yukina. They aren't unpleasant and there are some hilarious moments, so you *could* give it a try.

The stairs scene is when they meet at the library returning books after hours? That was darling, indeed.

Yup! That's the one :D

As for ep 7, I really loved that elevator scene where Ritsu was looking down all the time. I thought it's so Ritsu XD It reminded me so much of how he was in high school.
