God damn it, those endings. I really have a soft spot for rotating character endings, and this series is no exception. Not as good as Otome Youkai Zakuro's musically, yet even funnier than Kyouran Kazoku Nikki's. They've also reused MM!'s concept of dividing the staff into S/M in the credits for Kagerou, which is still... amusing?

Ah Kagerou made his appearance. Still funny and annoying at the same time.

Episode 05

Hmm, so far the episodes haven't been really interesting for me. The occasional moe or comedy moments are pretty much the only thing so far keep me entertained.

This whole episode was like with the S&M freak although Karauta in a nekomimi maid costumer was awsome.

They seem to have changed things around and have started to deviate from the manga. I like that we get to see and hear Kagerou's awesome SM categorization, but I think it would have been better and funnier if they swapped the upcoming episode 6 and 5 around to stay in line with the manga.

Though it sucks that the manga only really gets into the hard stuff in the later section, so naturally the anime will only get there in a few more weeks time, and by then, I guess all the type A people have tuned off.

Did the credits seriously attribute "S" or "M" to all of the staff? Including the corporate entities?

Karuta is a bottomless pit, which I find hilarious. I was wondering what kind of master she had, since she doesn't seem to be the most... eh... how to put it delicately... engaged of the agents. I suppose she's well suited to him if her primary role in the relationship is to be cosplay fodder. I laughed at her deadpan declaration of love, and Watanuki's reaction.

So our newest cast member's appearance comes to... nothing, in the end. I guess I can forgive it, since I was entertained for the entire show, but this kind of apparent padding is becoming a bit of a habit. The last two episodes have hinted at more to Souchi, and I suppose we'll at least get that as the story goes on, but I'm not sure there will be much more driving action in the story.

You know people, about that white coat Ririchiyo wear with her uniform..... (Massive nosebleed) Couldn't it be the sign that she was top of the class? I know that occasionally some private schools do have special uniforms for the best students.

Also, cold white chibi Ririchiyo..... (Massive nosebleed again, as the room is flooded by blood)

Hmm ... I didn't know there were places that did things like that.... For some reason I thought it was a science lab coat and she just liked wearing it.

Don't know if the coat is related, think its just what she likes to wear, but Isn't she the top of the class because she gave the speech at the welcoming party.

That she is ... the whole sequence with the jealous fellow classmates was around the fact that she took top honors grade wise iirc....

I also approve of seeing Ririchiyo in her "lab coat" again. Poor Riri still doesn't know that her "heartbeat" issues are her being in love. It definately looks like Soushi X Ririchiyo is the NTR route but with a fiance like Kagerou, our favorite moe ogre is better off with the fox.

Kagerou is most definately a jerk, although slightly amusing in his over-the-top jerkiness and his odd pattern of saying "sadist" or "maschoist". LOL at Nobara's reaction to him and his "gift". That's giving someone the cold shoulder, literally.

The preview seems to suggest some Karuta X Banri so that could be interesting. Also saw that Riri will be in her ogre form again, which is also rather moe.

Episode gets a 8/10. It's still solid, but not as enjoyable as the previous episodes.

Is it just me or is it hard to take a guy seriously when he says "Don't call me cute!" while wearing hair clips?

In a funny way, this show reminds me of Petopeto-san, though the tone is obviously much more sarcastic. That was a sweet series that was edgier than it looked, and this is an edgy series that's sweeter than it looks.

An s and an M. This post button likes being pressed; it must be an M! Tomokazu Sugita-- oh only they could get you to read these lines with a straight face.

So over the past few episodes, it really brings in why Ririchiyo is like that. A lot of people are hating on her because she grew up rich, and her aloof personality makes her even more inaccessible. Most of these emotions or signs of goodwill, are merely token gestures that really have no value. That's probably what she thought of Sparkling Butler here at first too; after all if you do something just because you are told to, is there a point to it? Or maybe there is.

She reminds me of Rika Furude at times.

Overall, Inu x Boku SS is a fun watch, but I don't really see the point of the show besides Ririchiyo being hot and Soushi looking pretty and being a stalker. I'm sure their relationship will develop and all, but it has been moving kinda slow and the show's mostly been pulling out wackier and wackier characters. Still, I suppose it can be forgiven every time they show her in her sleeping clothes.

I'm wondering why Aniplex isn't listed as S in the end credits despite it removed our favourite AMVs from Aniplex shows.

I felt pretty creeped out when I saw the scene with that guy offering some food to the younger Ririchiyo Makes me wonder if he was just doing it because he found her cute or wanted her money....or....ahh, i'm just going to stop

Aww, why did that Kagerou guy have to break up that moment between Ririchiyo and Soushi They were about to embrac each others love and realise that they were meant for each other! Or...something like that

And then of course, we get to witness the awesome scene of Nobara reacting to Karuta in the maid outfit And the way she reacted to the ball gag XD What was he doing carrying that around with him anyway?

Poor Banri! Just how much torture did he go through between the three of them when he was younger? That bit did make me laugh though.

And that adds to his appeal all the more :P He's an adorable wittle angry tanuki, isn't he?
That is a good observation though, why does he wear the hair clips if he wants to be perceived as tough? Doesn't he realize it won't help his cause? Be a tough guy and let the hair fall in your eyes! lol

I was thinking the exact same thing during those scenes. Only he could pull this off so smoothly.

God...The anime was doing the adaption quite good but this episode made me upset. They introduced Kagerou earlier for... nothing? Just to introduce him and that's it?
I won't go into details but I don't think it was a good idea to do this *sigh*

Some of the scenes (like the flashback of little Ririchiyo at the start of the episode and she going alone to buy some paper for letters, in the manga she goes alone to buy another thing for another reason) were anime-only and they left other scenes out or changed them since this episode happened later in the manga.

Spoiler for Comparison of the order of the chapters in manga and anime, only the title of the chapters and what chapters were animated in episode 5:



Apart from this, I enjoyed having Kagerou being voiced by Sugita and his ending was so hilarious (I could imagine this kind of song in Gintama with some Gintoki and Sa-chan).
Well at least next episode is going to be a really cute one

Watanuki is the most fun & scary character at the same time ^^"
On the other hand fox boy is the cutest & sweetest.
It was bad that their private moment got cut off abruptly.
Shoukiin sure is another weird one..
