My Boss My Hero 6-10
There's only one word that can capture the dazzling radiance that is Aragaki Yui and that word is moe! Everytime she's on screen, the whole world just seems a bit brighter. Which is also why eps 6 and 7 are the best of the series. Ep 6 is basically about the Agnes Pudding and the Aniranger and the fact that this ep has 2 'punchlines' makes it even better. And ep 7 is about Makky taking the Agnes Road with Umemura.
I'm mailing the writers to get rid of Sakura-nantoka and put more schoolgirls in this show.
However the ending of ep 7 basically spells the end of the Makky-Umemura storyline, thereby rendering her into a background character. Ep 8 is your bloody generic class gets together to play music story. That ep was not even half as good as swing girls. And the last ep brings us to the predictable ending.
IMO, the 2nd girl from the right is pretty hot.....
Forgot to mention one of the most ingenius ideas from the show; the Yakuza election! They could have milked the idea for one whole episode. All they had to do was to tranpose all the dirty stuff that people do during normal elections and have the yakuza do it. Bribery, phantom voters and interest groups applying their own pressures/donations.
My biggest beef with the show is still the lack of Aragaki Yui screen time. The generic happy ending is so not happy for me. They could have done so many good stuff if Makky and Umemura got together. Basically after the middle of ep 7, I knew it was all downhill for me. Still, Nagase Tomoya did a very good job as usual.
There are a lot of funny moments but I fast forwarded a lot of parts as well. So final verdict is the more Nagase Tomoya and koukou doramas you've seen, the less impressed you'll be with the writing.
