First of all, Kaichou wa Maid-sama is the only rival to Arakawa Under the Bridge. It’s uncredible, and I seriously don’t know whether I like it more or less than Arakawa. That’s right, despite the awesomeness that is Arakawa Under the Bridge, Kaichou wa Maid-sama, while it may not be as good as an anime as Arakawa Under the Bridge, is dead even in terms of enjoyment (I’m going to explain that comparison in a later post). Ask anyone, and they’ll probably tell you that Kaichou wa Maid-sama is just “good”, but nothing really spectacular. Those people are called idiots. This show is awesome. You know why?
I’ve already touched upon what makes him awesome, and this actually might be the first time I ever talk about a male character being awesome. At least it’s the first time I’ve have a post centered around a guy.
Anyway, I’ve already said in my first impression post that he displays apathy similar to a dog caring about where it shits (dogs don’t care where they shit). Apathy is a great characteristic, especially in a character, so already score a point for Usui.
First a brief background:
And now, some background on Usui. He’s the most popular kid in school, which is weird, because he doesn’t really do much of anything. He just has good looks. Proof that as long as you’re good looking, life is served up to you on a silver platter. Related to this: I HATE BLONDE GIRLS, THEY’RE NOT HOT.
Example #1: Females
Most guys want one thing, a girl to suck their dick. Well, it’s not like Usui doesn’t want to get his dick sucked, in fact, he says plenty of perverted things, but he just isn’t really concerned with it. He knows he could get any pussy he wants at the shake of a lambs tail, so he’s looking for something a bit more fun. That’s right, he fucks around with girls in ways that you don’t really think of when you hear that a guy is fucking around with a bunch of girls.
In the first episode,we learn that he turns every single girl down when they ask him out. This annoys the president, who tells him to stop making the girls cry. He, of course, could care less, and is unconcerned by the fact that he leaves every girl who talks to him weeping and suicidal. Take a girl in episode 3 who asks him out. To turn her down, he decides to just make some shit up, just for shits and giggles:
The girl, as you can see, is dumbfounded. She just found out that the boy she is basically in love with dresses up like a maid to get aroused. In fact, Usui doesn’t even wait for a response, because he knows that no girl in their right mind would want to go out (ohhh I just got a craving for cottege cheese somehow) with a loser that is obsessed with maids to that point. Of course, it’s true that he goes to a maid cafe a lot, but that’s just because he finds it interesting to go see the hard-ass president, Misaki, work as a maid (who wouldn’t find that great to watch?). Of course, it’s quite clear that he’s decided to bang the shit out of her as well, but that’s neither here nor there.
tl;dr: Usui isn’t concerned with girls, because he could fuck every girl in the school if he wanted to. He messes with them and makes them look foolish (well not really, but in my mind, yes).
Example #2: The Shit He Says (to the Misaki)
Well, we already know all of the rediculous things he says to random hoes on the streets (above picture), but what about things he says to a girl he actually wants to go after sort of?
Insinuating things to sex insinuates that you are the man. Usui doesn’t miss a beat. Just when you think he’s going to say something dramatic and thought provoking, he’ll attack Misaki with a, “Show me you’re boobs” one-liner.*
Usui is indeed a man’s man, and the fact that he always makes the expression seen in the very first picture is awesome. In fact all of the expressions in the show are among my favorite kind (the other kind being the kind seen in such shows as Kyou no Go no Ni, and Minami-ke).
This show rules. That is all (I still need to start like….2 more shows…..I’m watching SO MUCH SHIT this season, but that’s because it’s SO GOOD.
*: Show me you’re boobs! This is all me and Refuse to Come Wack say when one of us plays with Captain Falcon. I use Pikachu though, he rules…. AND WHO WON LAST TIME BITCH! BYAWWWW!!
