That’s right, folks, its that time again!
Time to be reminded of how depraved Day is!
If you are unfamiliar with this, see here.
Again, here are the shows I’m watching this season:
- Hetalia: World Series
- Otome Youkai Zakuro
- Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
- Star Driver
- Togainu no Chi
- Yumeiro Patissiere SP Professional
- Tantei Opera Milky Holmes
I dropped Yosuga no Sora since my last installment and picked up Milky Holmes. Milky Holmes hasn’t given me any BL thoughts yet, although its definitely pinged as having some yuri-ish elements. But, hey, this post isn’t about that, so who cares?
Again, not talking about Togainu no Chi since it is classified as BL and also avoiding Hetalia since it is basically one big BL tease. YumePati SP Professional already set off my BL-dar, and so will also go unmentioned.
And we’re off!
Well, seems I finally caught up with a lot of other people in smelling some BL potential here! How slow was I versus others? Ok, you still watching it? Y’know that moment where Takuto smacks Sugata? Yep, right there. Right there! Obviously nothing says ‘hot BL potential!’ like someone slapping someone straight across the face. This is why shows like Togainu no Chi get made and people ship Izaya and Shizuo!
How Fast to BL?: 7 episodes
I’m actually a bit behind on this one in terms of reporting its sighting. BL first struck me when we (sort of) met the Koibuchi’s chauffeur. As Kuranosuke walked by him and Hanamori said something to him very nonchalantly (something like ‘have a nice day, young master’), this tiny little thing took root in my head – hey, that chauffeur has a nice voice, and, well, hmm…
It doesn’t really help now that I’m a Shuukimi shipper, as that increases my inclination to ship the two for convenience’s sake 😉 At the same time, it occurred to me WAY before I thought to ship Shuu and Tsukimi. I’m also willing to ship Shuu and Hanamori as well…
Yes, my ships are in direct collision with each other. Bite me. …but not if you’re a shiki.
How Fast to BL?: 2 episodes
Ok, this one I’ve already talked about (twice, in fact), but I just felt like mentioning it again. Although I’m much more a MuroixOzaki fan, its hard to ignore Tohru’s rabu-rabu routine vis-a-vis Natsuno. I mean, geez, how can anyone not slash the two? Tohru mentioning having a crush on Ritsuko about three hundred years ago seems like such a ‘cover our ass’ (LULZ, LULZ NOT INTENDED) moment now.
In all seriousness, Natsuno’s offer to Tohru, his plan for the two of them to run off together and just let Tohru feed on Natsuno and not kill anyone was… man. That was deep shit, man. Deep. I’d love to see someone do a fanfic or doujin of that. Although I’m also simultaneously concerned about the willingness to take that as BL as opposed to an intense friendship. But that kind of mulling over is another post entirely, so I’ll leave off here.
Speaking of which: does a ship get sunk when one of the members of it tells a third party to destroy all the members of the ship’s in-group, including the entire ship? HMM.
Psst… Shiki… gimme some more MuroixOzaki scraps, will you? Please? I’m even willing to accept just some Muroi angsting about Ozaki, honestly. Anything.
