You know what, I don’t care anymore. Mari and Yori have won me over three whole weeks before the show has even began! The teaser had already got my curiosity but with this MV, this drama now has my attention!
Before I continue it is only right to thank one of my Readers gekikara hachibi for bringing this MV to my attention. I seriously don’t know how I missed it.
It was so good! The first impression I got was that this show is gonna look so beautiful! I already suspected from the teaser but that being only 720p kind of had me missing the quality aspect of it but this MV, if the actual show is anything like this, it is going to be one of the most beautiful shows ever! And depending on the result, it is going to be one of the very few TV shows I get on Blu-ray. That is if it does get released on that platform! Shows rarely get BD releases but this just has quality oozing out of it so hopefully it does well and that is usually a sure way to getting it on BDs!
Also, while I watched the teaser I had come up with some conclusions and this MV drove the points home for me. Mari and Yori’s relationship is going to be one filled with pain and emotions and that point was supported with what I saw in the MV. It seems Yori is going to be the one most affected but since I don’t have all the answers, no answers at all as to the story, I can’t speculate.
Okay, maybe a little. A spoiler kind of flew across my eyes (damn you internets) that said that the Guy (as the title implies really) was just Mari’s imagination. But in the teaser, when Mari says ‘Boku Yori-san ga suki’. I took it as the guy saying he loves Yori, when he is in control. This was what had me frowning because it would be kind of like that Korean show where an old guy was given a second chance and came back in the body of a woman! I hate that sneaky attack where it isn’t actually 100% gay.
I thought it was the same story here where it is not Mari herself but rather the guy inside that was in love with Yori.
But then get this!
I wonder if it was a spoiler but in the MV, there is this scene which I took it as happening inside Mari’s mind, somehow, because if it was in her mind how did Yori get there? But then again, it can’t be anything but that because of the lighting and everything that hinted at a different plane of existence. Anyway, in this scene all three are present; Mari, the guy and Yori. This scene showed a possessive Mari, a brooding/scared Guy and frightened Yori, frightened of the advancing Mari.
This confused me because it looked like Mari was fighting for Yori and the Guy did not seem that interested! There were no answers here but that is all I need. I am sure we shall get them in the show when it begins airing next month.
Sadly, the kiss teased in the teaser did not make it in the MV but what we got instead were other great moments between our girls like Mari taking Yori over to her place, then there was that moment where they were on the rooftop and Yori was about to slap Mari but instead she leaned forward into Mari and rested her head against Mari’s bosom. Talk about a show after my own heart! And let’s not forget that opening scene to the MV, I can’t wait to see what that is all about. I am sure it is going to be an important one, the way Mari was taken aback by what Yori had said.
Then there is also that scene where Mari pulls Yori on top of her. The lighting in that scene had me salivating at how both beautiful and romantic it looked. Lord help me.
I know that we have three weeks before the show drops but Mari/Yori are already towards the top of my list of ships for this year! I mean you never know, we might get surprised and have a YURI END! If the show progresses the way that both the teaser and the MV did, in that the Guy takes most of the early episodes where as Mari takes the later ones, we might be in for a surprise ending you all!
Anyway, jump over for more delicious caps and the videos…..
I mean, kissing, kabe-don, hand-sex, eye-sex, love confession from the main character(in the trailer), feels. How can this possibly go wrong?!
And before you all out there start spoiling things for me, DO NOT! That was a rhetorical question, thank you very much! I am aware that this is based off a manga that has already finished its run. I am not going to go reading it right now, only a month before the series airs just to disappoint myself, maybe.
But really, being realistic here, a title with ‘Boku’ in it is already a red flag, if the trailers did not already slap some sense into me that is. Speaking of the trailers, they are region locked so it was hard to get to them but I managed and thus I can’t post direct links to Fuji TV’s YT channel but after the jump for the usual magic.
Back to the trailers, what I wanted to say was that it was kind of satisfying to see how the ‘hetero’ trailer was skewered by viewers! Compared to the trailer that I took these caps from, there is another that was focused mainly on the hetero side of things and it got totally destroyed by the dislikes!
Thinking of the fact that since the trailer is region locked, mostly locals watched it and rated it meaning that Japanese mutuals totally preferred the ‘gay’ version, as I like to call it, as well!
Such satisfaction! Hopefully someone with a brain came to a conclusion about that. Dear FujiTV, you still have a month, before you had two, to fix that ending! You had better not screwed up and made the wrong one.
Anyway, this feels kind of good. It seems like Japan is also finally getting fed up with the ‘Bury Ur Gays’ trope! Hopefully the producers are listening!
Ikeda Elaiza (glassless obvi half-blood) plays main character Mari and Nakamura Yurika (glasses girl) plays Yori. There is a guy that shan’t be mentioned as well and I truly have a hard time with stories with this kind of concept but anything for yuri, right? I will travel through hell for it! At the very least I can come away with a great ship that I can feed in my delusions and dreams and fics…maybe.
Anyway, no matter what I am watching this. Surely it can’t be as painful as the likes of Pommanatur or Kuzu no Honkai!!
