Ai Yori Aoshi Episode 04

Ai Yori Aoshi

"Living Together"

Another episode of Me and My Slave. That's the translation right?

Hey, look at that! It's episode four. If you've been reading for a while, then you might know that when I hit episode four of a series, I tend to like to comment about the music. In fact, usually it isn't planned, it's just that episode four is where the intro stuff goes away, and I desperately feel the need to find something to write about.

Where was I?

Ah, yes, the music.

Well, when it's there, it ranges from nice (the piano theme is pretty good), to that crap that usually comes with shows in this genre. Even my favorite, Ah! My Goddess, is guilty of this. If only they could stick to the pianos. More often than not, however, the music is noticable only because of its absence. Lots of long stretches without music, and even when there is some sort of accompaniment, it's somewhat restrained.

On the story side of things, the Sakurabas have apparently decided to go 180 and let Aoi be with Kaoru (hey, well, there goes the main barrier of the show, right?), which seems completely weird, but I'm sure they have some sort of sinister motive behind it all.

If you like Aoi, you'll probably love this show regardless of its crappiness (legions of Love Hina fans raise your hands), and if you don't like her (as I don't), you probably won't enjoy it.
