Mei-chan no Shitsuji Episode 1 Reaction/Mini-spam  
To fill in while I wait to continue Coffee Prince, I just started Mei-chan no Shitsuji! I've seen a couple people squee over it and aliaspiral's post with caps just pushed me over the edge!

So CRACKY. I love it, my current dramas are much less crack-filled so it's nice to get back to my roots. CASTLES AND HELICOPTERS AND SLASHER CHICKS, OH MY! Plus, y'know, they all have butlers.




Oh, geez. I can't believe the sad, sad places the first ep went! I was not expecting that from the premise. Mei crying in the rain was so heartbreaking.


I love Eikura Nana, with her super-long legs and her short, short hair. She's so resilient and matter-of-fact. Also, I love how her tie isn't tied for most of the opening episode. I don't know if it's a statement or she doesn't know how to tie a tie but it was such a good character detail.




So many wacky classmates and butlers! From the first impressions, I like the HBIC (Hibari from Hana Kimi!) and her dorky butler, tiny little girl who sits on her muscular butler's shoulder, the pair of psychics and the girl in the knit hat with her Lurch-like butler. I'm looking forward to getting to know all these crazy people.


PRETTY:


There might be spoilers in the comments though, if anyone wants to dish. XD

OH NO!! You are ruining my life! I WANT TO WATCH THIS ONE NOW TOO! And I already have to watch Coffee Prince because it looks like exactly my kind of crack.

What is this show about besides stabbing screens with scissors and helicopters and pretty people? :P Although honestly that's enough to lure me in.

Why do I insist on tearing you in so many directions! *EVILS* While you should definitely watch Coffee Prince (still loving that LIKE BURNING), Mei-chan no Shitsuji seems like a smaller commitment, since it's only ten episodes and much more wacky and out-there. So far, it's looking good for when I need an hour of crack. Not all of us have the wonders of Smallville! ;)

Basically the show is about a normal, doesn't-take-crap-from-people commoner girl who one day has this very pretty guy show up claiming to be her "butler". For spoilery reasons beyond her control, she's forced to transfer to the insane, size-of-Tokyo St. Lucia's School for Girls. Where every student is required to have her own butler and they're mostly young and hot. HAHA OH JAPAN. Everyone is super-rich and wants to become a "lady" which involves knowing everything from advanced calculus to cooking to "survival skills" i.e. fighting off people trying to kill them which HAPPENS A LOT APPARENTLY. The whole show set in a surreal world full of v. pretty people but it seems to have real heart behind it. And you know I love spunky poor people finding themselves in the world of the crazy elite. XD

I know! You are totally killing me! So I decided that you're right about the show,time commitment-wise so I decided to make CP next on my life to watch and bump this show up because I've been in desperate need of crack. I sort of can't wait until the TV season ends and I can be all dramas all the time with my TV viewing. LOL!

That is very, very true. And this seems far less abusive than Smallville, which can only be a good thing. Oh Smallville. Why do you hurt me so bad?

Ok so I watched the first episode today and I already love it because it's so completely insane I was just like "O_O" the whole time. Do you remember when she's looking at all the girls making their butlers do things for them and the one girl is having her butler PUSH HER UP A HILL SO SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO WALK ON AN INCLINE? That's when I decided I would probably love this show. Also it made me want udon so bad. I feel like I'm going to be talking my friends into getting Japanese food this weekend. I would have eaten the handmade udon! Stupid rich people!

Oh good! I'm glad you had time for one of them! I know for me, if something is cracky it usually requires less mental/emotional commitment. ...I may spend too much time organizing my TV schedule. XD

HAHAHA, I know. That's exactly what I'm looking for in my entertainment sometimes! And Mei-chan delivers.

the one girl is having her butler PUSH HER UP A HILL SO SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO WALK ON AN INCLINE
YES! That was when I thought "This show has no shame!" Also I quality I like. And Mei had a nice WTF face in response.

Oh god, that sounds good. I have a good sushi place near me but I'm not even sure where to get udon. I need more delicious noodles in my life.

Ooh, I didn't realize so people I know have seen this show!

I started watching it because I wanted something light and happy, but then there was the crazy wheelchair girl.
That was pretty much my progression too! It looked so fun and comedic, and while it is, there's a lot more tragic events and murderous girls than I expected.

I hope you continue enjoying it!
Thanks! I'm watching episode 2 tonight and I have high hopes so far. :)

I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH.

...i..started trying to cap just the first ep to pimp the show, and instead ended up with 8000 caps of Hiro's beautiful face. I CANT HELP IT.

and everyone is so awesome! Hibari's character is named Izumi, and her adorable puppy butler is Kiba. the little one is Mizu-something, and her butler Daimon. I cant remember the psychic butler's name (Yu-something), but she is Rin. kooky girl is Tami, and her butler Kanda.

...and the girl with the boobs? her butler is OSCAR from Hana Kimi.

PLEASE CONTINUE SPAMMING. I MUST KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF IT.

It's so much fun! I was actually just about to treat myself to episode 2. :)

...ended up with 8000 caps of Hiro's beautiful face. I CANT HELP IT.
He's too distracting, I don't blame you. But your caps of his beautiful face from a later ep hooked me, so I'd say you still did a good job! :D I hope you do get your pimp post finished at some point though.

Thanks for the names! I'm usually pretty decent with them but there's so many characters and their title cards flashed by so quickly!

...and the girl with the boobs? her butler is OSCAR from Hana Kimi.
NO WAY. I totally didn't recognize him at all.

PLEASE CONTINUE SPAMMING. I MUST KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF IT.
OH YAY! Good to know! Sometimes I think I picspam too much. XD

I've seen the first five episodes of this and intend to finish it. I have some problems with it, but overall I like it. KIBA IS MY FAVORITE. KIBA gets all caps. I've posted some about it but not a lot, just a few caps per episode. (KIBA. KIBA.)

Yeah, it seems unfair to Mei-chan that I'm watching Coffee Prince simultaneously. Though, really, what could compete with CP? :D

KIBA IS MY FAVORITE.
Oh man, i just watched ep 2 which features a lot of Kiba&Izumi. HE IS THE CUTEST OMG.
