Ai Yori Aoshi Episode 02

Ai Yori Aoshi

"Supper"

Last episode I complained about Aoi, but this episode it'll have to be Kaoru. He, unfortunately, falls into the category of whiny male lead. "Why did this happen to me?" Despite the fact what he's getting is probably better than he could ever dream of.

What is it about that first meal in shows like this, where the subservient female makes a feast for the guy, but never makes any food for herself. Weird...

Anyways, we get to see Aoi being suitably housewifey for Kaoru, doing all the chores and stuff (boy, they sure try hard to make Aoi appealing to their core demographic, eh?). It's an easy enough solution, though. Why bother making Aoi an interesting character that people will find appealing on her own, when you can just make her every fanboy's dream?

Sorry, so I ended up complaining about Aoi again, but she's such an important part of this show, that it can't bode well that she's such a two-dimensional character.

Though, I will say, if you like that sort of girl, you will probably absolutely love this show.
