The skies are dark, I’m not doing overtime today, so ’tis a great day for blogging! Now on to BSM proper.
Our slice of life problem for today is: Asou can’t sing! Or rather, her rendition of songs leaves much to be desired. The pressure is on her, since her classmates think she can do anything, they also expect her to be good at singing. So our little achiever feels stressed, and what should she do?
Enter a new neighbor, Ichinokura (?) Masao. The guitar-playing boy-next-door makes his first appearance. Our boy is actually the one making the strange sounds that scared Kyou some nights before.
Ok so it’s predictable from the beginning that yeah, Asou would be taking voice lessons from guitar-boy. But of course, getting a good voice isn’t that easy. But shouldn’t they also take swimming lessons too, like what Koyuki did in Beck? The sisters doing push-ups and curls are so unsightly. =p
But after Asou gets that singing voice it’s all downhill from there. Masao disappears for a week to add more drama, his fangirls come looking for him, Asou puts on another oh-dramatic-face, but then minutes later Masao is back playing his guitar.
Regarding the title of this post, yeah perhaps if this series were a musical it might be more watchable. The pink thingies wouldn’t be so out of place and annoying. But then again since the poor sisters’ voices weren’t golden from the start, it would have been impossible to make a musical lol.
Anyway, perhaps the reason why I’m still watching this show is that I wanted to know if I could still get the gist of the story even without subtitles. You really can’t be bothered that much with the story if you’re also busy trying to understand what the characters are saying. And when I say I’ll finish something, I really try to. This anime is only 10 episodes, there’s only two more to go, and then I’m gonna be freed from watching pink thingies!!!
