Hourou Musuko: Ep 8-10
another quicky blog from me! it’ll just be my thoughts.
So lets start with episode 8, I thought it was nice of anna to accept nitori’s crossdressing but I wonder what her feelings are for him? it seems that she more just likes him as a friend or well as a little sister lol. when he asked if he wanted to kiss him she kind of hesitated for a moment and was surprised. these two don’t really seem much like a couple. and im not even sure if nitori really likes her either. but they are young so maybe they arent sure of their feelings or something lol.
the karoeke scene was pretty intense I mean you could cut the tension with a knife! I lol’d at chiba asking for a beer XD but it seemed in the end that they seemd to work it out and stuff, so maybe things wont be so bad now. also its nice to see chiba is working on becoming friends with takatsuki.
episode 9 and 10 were intersting as well mainly because nitori and takatsuki finally decided to get out of the closet I really found it intersting the different reactions to them entering school wearing opposite genders uniforms. takatsuki does it and everyone thinks shes soooo coooooool (chi got the same reaction as well before) nitori does it and everyone is like EWWWW HES SUCH A FREAAAAAK! I mean on top of that they class is ok and wants a gender bender play! but yet they tease him for cross-dressing! I really don’t understand it but maybe it has to do with double standards lets face it girls have more lee-way when it comes to dressing. so maybe its not too obvz when they wear boys clothing. (although takatsuki was wearing a boys uniform. still maybe its cuz chi did it? im not really sure.) or maybe people (or guys) are afraid that they might have gay repressed feelings for nitori for looking so much like a girl?
speaking of gay repressed feelings I think doi has a crush on trap!nitori but at the same time he seems to be trying to repress his feelings which is why I think he can be so cruel to nitori. I mean he insists that he dresses like a girl he likes that he dresses like a girl he even thinks he looks cute as a girl but im guessing hes probably confused and due to frustration he lashes out on nitori. but I did find his many reactions to nitori telling him off slightly hallerious. but I am defintly more curious about him and his relationship with nitori.
overall im REALLY enjoying this series it gives a much more realistice aspect to gender bending. ive always find stuff like this kind of interesting anyways so its nice to watch them grow up while also having to deal with this and the peoples different reactions to nitori and takatsuki.
