Cute boys doing cute things?
Well, no, not really. The boys aren’t really cute, nor are the things they do, unless boring is the new moe. So much for K-ON! with penises.
Kimi to Boku was… not as bad as I was expecting. In fact, I wouldn’t even call it bad, just fairly bland. It was a vast improvement over the manga, at the very least, which was so mind-numbingly boring that I can only picture it as one of the reading materials of hell (others include that rape bus yaoi one-shot that I can’t recall the name of and Kedamono Damono).
However, it did not make for exciting viewing material, either. I feel zero reason to care about these characters, or to bother watching them any more. The flashback shown across the episode of the guys as kindergarteners worrying about was sleeping in the middle was the clear highlight; if the show was just anecdotes from their childhood, I would probably find it a lot more worthwhile. Kaname’s crush on their kindergarten teacher was cute, as were the repeated failed attempts to keep anyone from being stuck sleeping in the middle. Nothing terribly stand-out about it, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
There’s just not much to say about this. I’m not really sure how to comment upon an episode consisting of a series of non-events. I liked the ED music, even if the accompanying animation looked off-model and demented at points. I cracked a smile over the indirect kiss joke.
Uh… what else… well, Shun came off as feeling like a cut-rate Natsume with better social skills with his whole introspection thing book-ending the episode. He actually looks like he’s Shun Kisaragi from Here is Greenwood’s separated-at-birth twin, though. Or Raikou Shimizu’s.
Well, clearly this show should just ditch the twins, ditch the glasses-guy, and just be a BL story about Shun and the incoming half-German kid. He’s the blonde in the OP and ED who is jumping all over Shun. You know people already have the BL-goggles on for this one; might as well make it official.
