Kuragehime 6 – Didn’t Sublime Sing About This?
After Eden of the East, you can never be too careful about these things. Good on Shuu for checking to see if he’s still all there . . .
Oh, Evil Career Woman. Surely your plot would have borne fruit had you snagged any other budding politician. Unfortunately, you got the one with emotional trauma and a Yamato Nadeshiko fetish. See, Shuu’s pops is totally the kind of guy Evil Career Woman would have wrapped around her finger. (Side note: Has Shuu’s dad aged at all in two decades? We didn’t see his face, so maybe he had fewer wrinkles or something, I dunno . . . same hair, though!) Then again, I guess there’s the scandal of a politician banging someone who is looking for project support. Conflict of interests are Serious Business.
I did lol at Evil Career Woman getting indignant about being shoved to the floor. “Who treats a woman that way?!” Note to self: MORE PILLS. Also enjoyed her frantic attempts to get the perfect cell phone photo. If there’s going to be scandal, then it has to be a well-framed, well-shot, well-lit scandal. Alas, if only she had one of those fancy Selecao phones. Juiz would always take the perfect picture if the price were right. Then again, if Evil Career Woman had a Selecao phone, she wouldn’t have to worry about seducing Shuu to get her project approved, either. Hm.
Meanwhile, Kuranosuke and the gals make like one big, happy family eating out at a fancy cafe. This is probably how I would look eating at one of these places. Oh, I can dress up just fine, but the terrible eating habits are formed for life. Sigh. I’m surprised there wasn’t a montage of shots of young, hip people and fancy elders with, “How rude!” and “Well, I never!” looks on their faces. Or maybe just one large shot of everyone in the place looking terrified. Perhaps they were all simply too absorbed in their personal worlds to pay attention to the Nuns. The waitress seemed to take it well; hope she got a nice tip.
First lesson didn’t go too well as far as etiquette or battle planning was concerned, but it was a nice bonding session for the ladies and
Kuranosuke Kurako. They even seemed kind of sad when she left! Friendship: Check. I wonder if there will ever be some reverse My Fair Lady stuff going on with Kuranosuke studying each of the girl’s obsessions. There are only five episodes remaining, so I doubt this will happen; however, it would be kind of funny if it did occur. The funniest would definitely be Kuranosuke checking out old dudes with Jiji. What if she wanted to catch an eyeful of Kuranosuke’s dad? Awkwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaard.
Not quite as awesome as Sheryl Nome’s credit card in the Macross Frontier movie, but still pretty funny nonetheless. It also doubles as a good title for one of Banba’s trains after she gets a makeover. Toot toot! All aboard the Gorgeous Express!
