Why I didn’t catch this on air around the holidays is still a mystery to me. I just caught wind of the 4-minute special this morning and unless they aired a Christmas special AFTER New Years, I probably missed it. Hmm, that being said, we shouldn’t expect to much from 4-minutes except perhaps an introduction to the characters and maybe even another teaser trailer scene. Needless without saying, I’m still expecting a decent run from this, even if it’s a four-minute special. Oh, and if I’m going to blog this, I’m going to call it B2T2S because that makes my life so much easier. Grazie.
“Fools, Test, and Summons Beast” – They is winnar in grammar.
So it turns out that it’s a question-answer interview with one question that gives us insight into the characters and persona they are – What is Christmas? Mizuki (see above) goes first, saying it’s a day to spend with the people you love with the white glistening and falling snow. She then goes off to kiss a guy, who we can presume to be the male protagonist. Her voice to me seems very annoying – so annoying that it would already consist of 90% of the reason why I would not want to continue watching this show… and then an interlude of hardcore Christians come, shouting that Christmas is the day we celebrate the birth of Christ, and nothing else. Well… yes, we celebrate it for the Saviour but… we don’t usually take it to that extreme end. …yeah, this random interlude of men consists of the other 10% why I would not continue to watch this show – if I’m going to get random interludes of old men screaming things out, I’ll go back to Ladies versus Butlers.
And then another interview, which I’ll presume to be Minami-chan, answers the question as Christmas being a day to spend with the boy she loves, walking together with one scarf and the like. Awww, isn’t that sweet… unless we get another interlude with a crazy younger girl, who shouts that onee-sama shouldn’t spend that time with a boy… and the old men join in and agree with her. Is she carrying forks in between her fingers? WTF to the max, although we can guess that she’s Minami’s younger sister. Then it’s Hideyoshi saying the same things, before the old men chorus shout that they want Hideyoshi to go out with them. And then it’s our hero, Akihisa Yoshii, who says the exact same things as the girls said, although with a slight variation. Old men chorus, followed by a sign that says Baka to test to Shoukanjuu wishes you a Merry Christmas. So I’ll take it that they did air this earlier. Ah well.
Personally, I wasn’t that impressed by the 4-minute special by the four main characters, but it looks like it has promise. We’ll wait for the first episode and see.
