My Fox Spirit and Me (InuxBokuSS First Impressions)
This is the final anime I plan to watch every week this season. InuxBoku SS. Which literally translate to Me with My Dog Secret Service. I am not kidding. But turns out, neither is this anime when it comes to awesomeness.
So far from what I can tell, it is a show about this girl who wants to be independent and goes to live in a mansion. In the mansion, you have a Secret Service agent who will serve you. Hence the SS in the name. So the girl, Ririchiyo, has a SS agent assigned to her (Not that she wants it). Soushi (the secret agent) protects her, serves her meals etc.
Sounds boring right? There is a twist. Did I mention that every SS agent in the building is a supernatural being of some sort? So far that is the biggest twist for me. I did not really read the summary of it so it came as a surprise.
There are quite a number of characters in this show, so for now I will focus on the main 2. Soushi and Ririchiyo. To sum out Ririchiyo, basically, she is an extremely enormous tsundere. But there is a twist. She knows and accepts that she is like that and wants to change it. The origins of her being that way was from when she was young and she genuinely a nice person inside. Unlike a certain pink haired tsundere from a certain Zero no Tsuiskaina.
What have we learnt in every single show with a tsundere? There has to be a guy to go along. Hence Soushi. But what I find unique about this show is that he is not your usual tsundere partner guy. He is completely different to the rest I have seen. He gives his everything to Ririchiyo, accepts every tsun thing she does and for the first time in my life, I have seen a tsundere losing an argument. That is freaking amazing. So morale of the story is, to win a tsun, just completely give in and she will not expect it. By the way if you did not know, he is a fox spirit (CAPTAIN OBVIOUS STRIKES AGAIN)
That is if you can swallow your pride enough.
This show has a big star cast. With Toyosaki Aki, Hanazewa Kana and Hikasa Youko, all whom are my favourites. But one seiyuu caught my eye. Hidaka Rina, voice of Ririchiyo. So far I have not seen many of her anime she voiced in except for Ro-Kyu-Bu, and the voice she used completely shocked me. I did not see it coming from a mile away. Seeing she did a gentle girl for RKB, the whole tsun thing shocked me.
Another interesting note… HanaKana can actually sound scary along with moe…. *mind scared* I need to go for therapy now.
So far, I have to say this anime is really unique. I’m really interested to see what the connection between Shoushi and Ririchiyo and how she supposedly saved her. So far I find this show not bad and rather interesting so it would be nice to see how they continue to pull this of. The fact that they went with a whole new direction with the tsundere is fantastic, I was getting bored of the old kind.
So, what did you think of this anime? So far I found that it is a really interesting show and I will continue to blog about it. The moe-ness is there and so is a really deep theme, so, anime, amaze me! With a moe picture!
