If I get to see my master naked every night and gain some deus ex machina power in return for being forced to sleep on the floor, eat hard bread and do her laundry, I’ll gladly become a familiar.
Seriously, even though Zero no Tsukaima is reminding me hard of Shakugan no Shana and Harry Potter, I’m glad it still has it’s distinguishing features.
First off, Hiraga isn’t a wimp like Yuuji was and he definitely proves it in the second episode, with his revenge and fight against Mr. Playboy (don’t care to remember his name). I hope his sarcasm and manliness remains intact for the series, as it seems to be the only thing that’s making me like him.
Louise, meanwhile, isn’t as closed as Shana was of her true feelings. It was nice to see her concern towards Saito in this episode. Much more fun if the tsun tsun and dere dere moments are balanced I guess. Plus it seems she has a really kinky side, with the chains and whips.
Sure, Zero’ll degenerate in to harem fun sooner or later, but let’s hope that J.C. Staff at least makes it enjoayble to watch.
