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.

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.

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.

So, Kuranosuke not only is a dedicated follower of fashion but also wants to make a living in it.

Wow, I didn't have a clue
I mean it!

Will we see later

This episode totally has me shipping Tsukimi x Kuranosuke now.

They have a certain weird chemistry that I like.

Shu wanted to see Tsukimi because he liked how she looked, but Kuranosuke genuinely likes her and thinks she's interesting.

When Kuranosuke was telling Shu about Tsukimi, he knew what she was really like, and yet still enjoys seeing her.

I think that if Shu had known at first what Tsukimi was really like and what she usually looks like, he wouldn't have wanted anything to do with her.

Both Shu and Tsukimi are rather gaga over each other when they really haven't met. I hate couples like that. That's why I'm hoping that meybe, just maybe, slowly, Kuranosuke and Tsukimi will fall for each other.


Wooord on this. Kuranosuke and Tsukimi are my OTP for life, I was addicted to their chemistry from the get-go. Not that I dislike Shuu or anything, but I'll be miffed if he gets too close to Tsukimi. =/

I'm also glad they got the makeover episode out of the way so that we can focus on interesting things. This isn't the kind of show where everyone ends up looking plastic and barbie-ish, people. And even if Tsukimi learns a few tips she won't ever turn into the chic monsters she fears. It's about being comfortable with yourself and how you look no matter what the general public's standards are. That, even more so than Kuranosuke's beauty, is what I believe Tsukimi admires so much about him. He's comfortable the way he is, dressing in women's clothing and is able to let scorn and irritation roll off of him like water.

Also. I don't understand the hate for Mayaya and Banba at all. I'm sorry but saying they're annoying doesn't make any sense to me. When I see Mayaya at her antics I just dissolve into hysterical laughter. She reminds me quite a bit of the Kure-nai cast (Tamaki on speed, anyone?) and I appreciate her as a comedy relief character.

I'm addicted to this show. Plastering my MAL profile with it as soon as I get enough scans and fanart.

Noo. I don't want romance in this! Tsukimi better not compromise any of her otakuness for either of the brothers.

Kuranosuke's situation kind of reminds me of Tamaki's.

One of the things I love about this series as well is the opening for having a Star Wars parody (maybe even a 'Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind' thrown in there, too?) and Clara's little 'attention getters'. :P

"Klarara....Tequila!"

Anyways, unto the episode:

Woah, I never would have expected that Kuranosuke's uncle would react that way to him cross-dressing. Hahahaha. But, I guess I would have the same reason that he has for cross-dressing since he doesn't want to be a politician at all - I wouldn't either, so, I don't mind it.

But, ughhhhh, Kuranosuke's brother. Annnnyways, I'm rooting for KuranosukeXTsukimi <33

Kuranosuke's reason is she doesn't want to be a politician.

the second reason is probably more in line with his mother's job as a fashion designer.

so the sisterhood source of income are there parents?

and lol they are already in their 30s :P

Tsurumiki is soo gorgeous with that make up :)

and what the hell Kuranosuke's brother is in love with her XD

so they will close the sisterhood :(

im glad we get a backstory with Kuranosuke's family and all.

i wonder where is Kuranosuke's mother is??

amazing episode!

love the jokes and light hearted scenes :)

really liked Tsukimi's makeover (even if it only was for a short while), and that she stayed the same bumbling way she was before it.

also really liked the bit when when kuranosukes brother asked about Tsukimi + the following exchange where Kuranosuke describes her.
