Shomin Sample episode 08

I am so confused right now. Last week they made quite a big deal out of that maid kissing the protagonist and now they haven’t even focussed on that for even a second. We know nothing about her or her plans.

[Ohys-Raws] Ore ga Ojou-sama Gakkou ni 'Shomin Sample' Toshite Gets-sareta Ken - 08 (AT-X 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_19.51_[2015.11.27_00.01.02]Last week’s episode left us with a scene of that maid kissing him. This week we just dove straight into fortune telling and how that could help the girls get the man of their dreams (aka our protagonist). This, of course, led to a lot of ridiculous rivalry amongst the girls with the protagonist in the middle. Still, at least we got to see samurai-chan in those clothes again.

I’m satisfied because Hakua was in this week’s episode. At the same time I’m disappointed because we still don’t know a damn thing about that maid or why she insists on being his maid. They have been giving slight hints and quite a few obvious scenes here and there, but they still wish to make things unnecessarily confusing by not continuing it but to focus on something else entirely.

Shomin Sample episode 07

I’ll just say it once and for all; this show really loses its magic when Hakua isn’t involved. They made this protagonist and created half a dozen heroines that’ll end up fighting over him and they spend too little time on the greatest one.

Kimito complimented the living hell out of Karen and made her wear a very sexy outfit, after which she ended up running away embarrassed and flattered. That gave me false hope once again. I knew that nothing’s ever going to happen.

I have to accept that the magic of Shomin Sample drops whenever Hakua doesn’t get enough screen-time. Aika has pretty much fulfilled her mission (so to speak) and that’s that. I honestly can’t see her a potential girlfriend even though she did get closest to him so far by performing CPR. My money’s still on Hakua or Karen as a last resort. His maid is a no-go (until she actually kissed him).

Shomin Sample episode 06

I just got home and I didn’t even have time to schedule today’s post. Better late than never, I guess. I’ve read a lot of dissatisfied posts about this episode. Why? Because it reminded you that it’s about a weird story about high-class girls and a single commoner that teaches them about the common world? Come on…

[Ohys-Raws] Ore ga Ojou-sama Gakkou ni 'Shomin Sample' Toshite Gets-sareta Ken - 06 (AT-X 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_21.41_[2015.11.13_01.00.48]You know a story has gone passed that thin rational line when you see that some school for rich kids has the ability to recreate a part of a city with fast food chains and arcades and whatnot just so that those girls can learn about the common world. My school, back in the day, didn’t even have the funds for proper books. We had to use second-hand ones.

Anyway, I’m satisfied with this episode. That pushy red-head finally got herself some friends and is well on her way to become one of the popular students. I guess things are finally starting to unfold. All that’s left is for our protagonist to start benefitting from this deal instead of his family. Maybe a kiss or an accidental touch or something?

Shomin Sample episode 05

Now this episode was absolutely delightful. It’s sad that I have to write this on my laptop from my bed as I sip tea with honey like an eighty year old man to stop my throat from killing me. Our bodies are pathetically fragile.

[Ohys-Raws] Ore ga Ojou-sama Gakkou ni 'Shomin Sample' Toshite Gets-sareta Ken - 05 (AT-X 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_21.32_[2015.11.05_23.38.54]So they decided to dedicate most of this week’s episode to that adorable loli and her strange habits. I loved it. The girls noticed that she only really opens up to the protagonist and that she tries her best to hog all of his attention for herself. Needless to say that she has an enormous crush on him ever since he fed her those noodles.

Yeah, watching her and her strange quirks was an absolutely delight. But hey, the final scene really was the cherry on top of the whipped cream. That hilarious scene where those girls had an unintentional moment of lesbianism was one to remember. Catching those two in that position gives a whole lot of hilarious new options for the story. I hope they continue this next week.

Shomin Sample episode 04

Okay, I still feel a little under the weather and this episode wasn’t really as amazing as I had hoped, so I’ll be keeping it short and simple. I was kind of hoping that the romance would’ve set in by now, yet the protagonist doesn’t seem to be interested whatsoever.

[Ohys-Raws] Ore ga Ojou-sama Gakkou ni 'Shomin Sample' Toshite Gets-sareta Ken - 04 (AT-X 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_21.13_[2015.10.29_23.36.21]I’ll come out and say it; I did not like that gyaru nonsense.  I am not at all interested in characters like that because they are so incredibly fake. They try to come across as funny and cute but they’re really not. The comedy seems rather forced and you end up annoyed instead of amused. I’m just glad it was a short scene.

It’s really too bad that we only got a couple of minutes of loli-time this week. She is so funny and adorable that I wouldn’t mind if they made the entire show revolve around her instead of this oblivious protagonist. Although I’m pretty sure that we’ll get to see more of her now that she, too, has joined that weird “commoners club”. This should be interesting…
