I am pretty sure they are going to completely miss the pedophile angle. Like, even his vice secretary was kind of suggesting that he should have chosen love over cold diplomacy. Then he risks pulling the country into a bloody and drawn out war because he is going to marry that girl? I mean, I really don’t think he did it for moral reasons. If he was just concerned for her safety…he didn’t have to hug her, and then hold her like that. Hell, he could have been like “Stop! I have approved that girl’s request for asylum!” and you know…not risk political suicide by committing to marry a girl who hasn’t had her first period yet.
I figure its just going to be another example of showing how great Japan is, because they wait until they are 16 until they diddle kids.
Rewatched Ladies Vs Butlers.
Man, that was a great show. There was some surprisingly nice cinematography here and there. And Flameheart was a surprisingly endearing character. I think it is because her straight faced, honest and animated character contrasts so nicely with Tomomi’s cold, calculating evil. It is also kind of odd to see a drill haired girl be one of the “main” girls in the running, and not a disposable side character used only for the summer home or whatever. It’s kind of a shame too, since they do look stupid, and she looks much, much better in the few scenes where her hair is down.
The subs on this Anime Works (what? they and media blasters are still around?) blu ray are pretty spotty. I mean, most of the time its fine, but occasionally you get really, really poor translations that don’t even make sense, like, they had two translators and one of them, English was a second language. It’s most notable in the first and last episodes.
Also, didn’t include the legendary specials, which is a crying shame. Those were revolutionary.
