Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii is corny, silly and I still can’t believe it’s airing in this day and age and I’ll say that every time I talk about this show. Still, I love it to pieces. And I was so excited for this episode. So why did I end up feeling so disappointed at the end?
The preview showed us this Libra lookin guy and Nike and you knew it was ripe for misunderstanding and it wouldn’t go very far but MAN I didn’t expect it to spiral out of control like it did. Nike does Ouran Chapter 9 bit (is attempted rape/sexual assault with no intention to go through to teach the female a lesson but she sees through them a common thing in shoujo or what? Because that’s hella gross guys) where Kyoya gets Haruhi on the bed but Haruhi calls him out. Nike calls out Bard after he gets her on the bed and immediately after Livi shows up but instead of a comical reaction like Tamaki, he flips the hell out and turns into the biggest douchelord of the century.
Though he had warned her, she had done nothing of fault and to mistrust her so easily is ehhhhh. I have a feeling they’ll be like “oh, he was just bluffing” and it was an act or she’ll forgive him when he see’s he was in the wrong but like LOOK:
How am I supposed to forgive the way he’s acting? Threatening her with something so damned serious like that? We may have reached the point where we see he’s still not a normal adjusted person and has some serious problems and if this show holds up, they can work it out and stay together and move past this IF DONE RIGHT. And sure we don’t know his history with Bard but like goddamn that doesn’t mean take it out on the one person he does like. Though I guess he could have been afraid of losing her to him. So be an asshole. That” totally help.
It’s going to take a lot of grovelling and repentance on Livi’s sake for me to possibly accept the goofiness from the beginning of the episode again. If they just wash over this incident like it was nothing, I’m going to be pissed. Though it’s hard to ignore Livi saying he’s gonna torture his uncle to death and all. But I would still hope Nike is mad for her sake. That his mistrusted her and turned on her so easily.
So this stupid show that I ended up loving has left a bad taste in my mouth but I think that’s entirely the point. Whether or not it can redeem itself and make me continue to love and enjoy it is up in the air right now but I sure am rooting for it.
