Review: Mei-chan no Shitsuji/ Mei-chan's Butler
As you can see from the pic, Mei-chan no Shitsuji is a drama that stars Tendou's actor from Kabuto and Ryoutarou's actor from Den-O. The girl is played by the star of the Boku no Imoutou ni Koi Suru movie. The pun in this show is how "shitsuji/butler" sounds like "hitsuji/lamb". Mary-chan's little lambs?
Plot: Circumstances force Mei to go to a school for ladies. Tendou plays Tendou the butler. Ryou plays Tendou's screw-up, rebellious little brother. The first episode is pretty cliche and shoujotastic as someone said, but the story gets more compelling as pieces clue the viewer into why Mei is actually at the school. There's a little mystery
Actors you know and love:
BoukenYellow is the girl on the left. Nago from Kiva is the butler on the right. I don't know if they actual do anything in the story though
The star of WoO plays Mei's neighbor in the low-class dorm she lives in. She's great since her character is always screwing around and just being as unladylike as possible. And guess our favorite Impactor is her butler. Honestly, I burst out laughing when I found this out looking it up, I knew he was familiar
The girls that bully Mei. The middle one was Zenigata Kai from Keitai Deka if you followed that series
Here's the most elite girls in the school, they were long wigs and are super stuck up. Guess which one is Nai from MagiRangers, since I have no clue. Apparently this one I think another of them played the little sister from Cutie Honey one.
Yamada Yu plays a very important character in this series. She looks kind of bizarre, but it fits her character. Edit: She's the Akira from the Akihabara@Deep movie.
Let's not forget DekaSwan and Amane's mother from Blade playing a rich lady
One of the butlers plays some Hurricanger too. Mei's froggy grandfather's two butlers are GekiBlue and his twin too.
Edit: Sorry, looks like I didn't end up reviewing this at all. If you have an open mind, just check it out. It's funny and it's a change of pace from toku.
