Eh, I don't like that she had to ~become beautiful~ with the right makeup and such to justify her usually not being very attractive.
I was hoping this show would be more about self-acceptance as someone who isn't beautiful or amazing by society's standards.

Now that we know she /can/ become 'pretty', her reasoning for not wanting to stay that way ["the other ugly girls will hate me!"] seems weak.


I know I keep repeating myself here but I think it's more like Kuranosuke and Shuu are going to learn about beauty more than Tsukimi. They are the ones who are going to learn to appreciate people for who they are rather than their looks in the end imo.


I hope that's the case.
And I'd have nothing against Tsukimi as a character even if she did feel the need to become physically attractive for whatever reason [as long as her personality was more or less the same], it's the show that I'm disappointed in for going down the path of "however, look! She's /capable/ of being beautiful!" rather than taking the road less traveled and just having her be consistently 'ugly'.


My thing is that I think she will prove to Kuranosuke that looks aren't as important and that first and foremost you should be yourself.

Ah this is such a refreshing anime, it always manages to change my mood.
Although I'm also disliking the whole princess makeover thing, like they needed to be changed to be better.

Hahaha, you are right about that. Didn't think about it, but there's usually bound to be something that makes male leads mysterious..bleh!

I wouldn't say Shu was being a jerk. He's your average type of person who's first thing they'd notice about people is their appearance. As for Kuranosuke, I don't think he was treating his friends as playthings. He said he liked to hang out with Tsukimi and her friends because they're more interesting and not as shallow as his other friends despite having nothing in common. The ending credits is a huge giveaway.

Best show of the season. So much <3

^ This above, I agree completely <3
& I laughed when Kuranosuke was dancing with his uncle, his reasons for cross-dressing are funny (:
Also Tsukimi is really pretty, even with out all that make up... I wish she would've seen herself after being dolled up by Kuranosuke though (:

I also loved it when Kuranosuke was dancing with his uncle and providing a bit of service. Hilarious!

I was rather happy about the makeover as it was great to see how Tsukimi could look like. And it's not a surprise that she's beautiful since she's already kinda cute and her mother was very attractive. I'm all for people being themselves, but it seems like Tsukimi determination to maintain her current appearance is due in part to her fear of losing her friends. From the start there's been this whole "us" versus "them" with appearance being a big factor. Cliche or not, I like that Kuranosuke's overwhelming love of fashion and carefree nature will chip away at that wall that they've built up.

Tukimi was far prettier before Kuranosuke defiled her with that boring run-of-the-mill look.

This episode indicates either a trite future course or a not quite as but still sort of trite subversive course, I really hope it somehow opts for neither.

What a fun, hilarious episode. Shuu's reaction to the "Do you have a crush?" was priceless.

I think this might be my favorite of this season.

I loved the fact Shuu fell in love with Tsukumi ♥ Seems she has a crush on him too now. XD Hoping Shuu will get to know her moar instead of judging by her looks.

I don't want Kuronosuke/Tsukumi much now but who knows what will happen next to change my mind. And Kuronosuke's past abuot his mom is frecking cliche. :|

Kuragehime - 03

I attempted to analyze the OP and tied it together with the story, as well as expound on the different relationships.

On a side note, I dislike Mayaya and Banba. They suck as comic reliefs, seriously.

Mayaya mugs the camera too much though.

Another very good episode although I did not enjoy it quite as much as the previous two. They seem to be setting up the story for a series much longer than the 11 episodes planned but hopefully they dont rush through the story at the end.

Same here on Banba, but I like Mayaya too though :) I find her interesting because she's obsessed on different stuff then the others.

^ +1
She's the only one that has any kind of real potential. Those other women are so pathetic that they make me want to cry. They actually make my lame life look SWEET!!!



Actually, I think Mayaya would look pretty good if/when Kuranosuke decides to pounce on her (though she looks like she'll be the most resistant). Anyway, enjoyed this episode immensely and even though Shuu came off as a bit of a jerk at the end, I'd like to see more of him too.
