Hakushaku-sama is a light-hearted series about a human, Akira, and his vampire lover/husband Eddie. Though there is a bit of drama, this is series is, at heart, a vampire comedy love-story. I didn’t review the first two in the series because I figured there wasn’t much content anyways. I decide to wait until after the third CD to review this since Akira and Eddie visit Eddie’s family in London (I think it was).
To summarize the two first dramas in this series is simple enough. By the end of the first CD, Akira and Eddie become an official couple and in the second CD they break-up once and get back together by the end. They also open up the matter about Akira having to decide whether or not to become a vampire.
In the third drama, the couple goes to London and Seiryo (who reminds me of Miyuki from Balett Star, even more so since they have the same seiyuu) tags along as well. There, Akira is forced to wonder about the whole “becoming a vampire” thing but the rest of Eddie’s vampire family tells him that he need not rush his decision. It was mostly that in the CD, comedy, ex-fiancée appearing and other insanities aside.
I can’t remember the last time I listened to something with such a lovey-dovey couple. Akira and Eddie act like newlyweds of the good kind *scowls at Tomoyo and Tomoya* In the first drama, Akira is a tsundere in the original sense of the word. At first, he was pretty aggressive and always refused and pushed away Eddie’s advances. He gives in slowly though and by the third CD the two are a perfect and honest couple. It’s hard to resist Eddie’s “ore-sama” attitude after all. Of course, Akira’s still strict and mature (since Eddie is most of time far from those qualities) and will scold his vampire lover whenever needed but he’s softened up a lot. As I said, the two of them really act like husband and wife. It’s uncanny.
The two of them never cease to make me smile and giggle. They’re absolutely adorable. I can’t get enough to “Inran-chan” “Honey!” and “Darling”s from this series. Really, I don’t think I’ve ever listened to a CD with such an honest couple. It’s the first time that both uke and seme can say “darling” “honey” without shame. It’s a great change from some other series. “Married” is the most perfect word to describe these two (married in the ideal sense of the word).
The highlight of this CD for me isn’t the vampire part nor the comedy. I’ve heard funnier and if we’re talking vampires I prefer Twilight. Yep, the highlight definitely is Akira’s and Eddie’s relationship. It never gets old and it’s always entertaining. Plus, it’s hard to resist the cute voice SugiTomo uses when he’s in bat form. It’s totally adorable! Then there’s Tori-chan is getting up the ranks in my favorite list. He’s a really really great seiyuu and nearly at odds with Yucchi as good in both uke and seme roles.
(As a little side note, I absolutely loved how You-kyan’s name mysteriously came out SugiTomo’s mouth in the freetalk of the third drama. I didn’t really understand what he had said. Oh and, You-kyan plays a character in this drama with a single line. Props to you if you find it =P I recognized it in a heartbeat. Hard not to.
It’s obvious how much I’m looking forward to Scarlet, huh?)
