Ok so let’s begin this evaluation by laying down some hard kn-aahhw-ledge! In the world of anime we can’t turn the corner without finding some cute chibi girls or some meta human sexy girl twist. Even in the yaoi world, the men’s design seem to be losing to cross dressing, which I’m not trying to get into-you like what you like. The point of all this is to slowly introduce you to Shounen Maid- not to be mistaken for, the explicit yaoi that is, Kuro-kun tenshi no uta. Shounen Maid, which is a barely hidden shota yaoi between uncle and nephew.
I guess to broaden the world of anime a little more, for girls that like yaoi that is canon-SasuNaru, HakuZabu, SaRo etc- but not canon. It’s got a tsundere character-classic how they called him a housewife on the first episode and that wasn’t even three minutes in- Chihiro, whose mother died. This leads to some sweet old couple, that helps him take care of himself until his uncle shows afraid of what may be a harmless dog, but I’ve watched Azumanga Daoih so I know to be wary of seemingly innocent pets i.e. cats, that was barking at him- but I digress.It’s sad if you think about a child losing their only parent in elementary but I will admit the chibi art takes away from the looming sadness. a little. Along with the art, the “nurturing” people surrounding our young protagonist help move the story along and keep it as light as possible.
I should also mention that his uncle loves to dress him up in costumes. Can I get a “This is shounen ai! ” please. I probably seems like I’m nit picking for yaoi-ness, but I’m not. As an A+ fujoshi I can appreciate when a writer gives us fujoshi, or fudanshi you know who you are lol, some anime loving. The anime is funny but smell of incest, did I use that wrong no I I’m pretty sure I didn’t ;), won’t leave my senses. It’s true Madoka, Chihiro’s uncle who kinda looks like Tamaki-resident sexy anime boy, loves his sister but doesn’t that platonic love end when you take her child and start working and dressing him as a maid along with mentioning that he looks and acts like her every five minutes?
Anyway, I just wanted to bring some sad but good anime to light! If you enjoyed this rant comment or follow me on twitter, tunblr, facebook or all of them ;), and tell me what to go on my next tangent on. Till next time!Tags: #kawaii, #maid, #shounen maid
