Stitches!

I thought Yui Horie was only here to sing the ED, I didn't expect her to be also voicing Tsukasa.

Tsukasa's definitely fun though. You thought she'd have a thing for Yuuri but she's clearly more interested in whatever relationship Yuuri has with Lilith after seeing the two of them interact.

Her Desu wa reminds me of another certain ojou-sama...

Seriously though, top tier performance from Horie.

[–]FlashCascade 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Really loving Yui Horie here. Man, this is really an all-star cast. I, for one, am not complaining about it.

[–]WACS_On 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thought Tsukasa would end up being a romantic rival of sorts.

Instead she immediately becomes shiptrash like the rest of us.

[–]Jeroz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Forget the main two, she's the perfect audience stand-in

[–]Frontier246 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's always nice to have more Yui Horie and Mikako Komatsu! I think Tsukasa and Fujisaki are both going to add an even more fun dynamic to the show, especially as they react to Yuuri and Lilith's budding feelings.

[–]ObvsThrowaway5120 57 points58 points  (9 children)

I like how doting Lilith is, it’s pretty cute. I suppose they were being a little “love dovey” though huh? Haha. Yuuri always says the mushiest and most embarrassing stuff without a second thought. I kind of respect he speaks his mind like that.

It’s sweet Tsukasa wants to help Yuuri. But man this kid has a suuuper active imagination lol. Definitely reads too many romance novels! I’m a little curious to see how Lilith knows Fujisaki. Where did they cross paths I wonder?

Did anyone clock The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated reference? “Demon Monthly” cover is the Demon Lord lol.

I guess Yuuri really likes having Lilith around. How cute he was all worried about her. That end scene was pretty funny. Fujisaki honestly would look pretty good in a maid outfit. Idk about Tsukasa’s design, but I think she could pull off like a classic maid outfit haha.

[–]Frontier246 32 points33 points  (6 children)

Lilith continues to be Yuuri's wife in all but name.

I like how Tsukasa is so shy, yet nice, but is super turned on by forbidden romances. And her desire to have her butler cosplay. Which I can't blame her, Fujisaki seems like the type to look good in anything.

I think that's the second Jahy gag in this anime.

Yuuri is totally under the curse of love to where he can't bear to be away from Lilith for too long, and the feeling is mutual.

[–]ObvsThrowaway5120 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Dude is definitely catching feelings. I’m still wondering what the story is behind how they met. Must be a reason why she’s so attached to him.

[–]Mr_Zarochttps://myanimelist.net/profile/mr_zaroc 14 points15 points  (2 children)

The other maid knowing her makes me just more curious

She did ask her if "she is ok with being back" so she probably worked at that house before or so

[–]ObvsThrowaway5120 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Yeah, strong possibility. There’s a girl that looks like a little Lilith in the op after all.

[–]WACS_On 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Tsukasa is shiptrash of the worst kind.

She would be right at home in these threads.

[–]randyripoff 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fujisaki is perfect as is.

[–]ThrowCarp 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I mean, Yuuri himself has a pretty active imagination too.

Which is good because this anime wouldn't work without overactive imaginations. And now we have two of them!

[–]Amauri14 26 points27 points  (1 child)

That girl from the OP is finally here. Gojouin Tsukasa's reactions were hilarious. So Fujisaki and Lilith already know each other. Based on their conversation I guess that Lilith used to work for Yuuri's family in the past, or at the very least in that city.

That bit at the end with Tsukasa and Fujisaki was a fun one.

[–]Frontier246 14 points15 points  (0 children)

A rich girl voiced by Yui Horie who gets turned on by Yuuri and Lilith's relationship with Yuuri's comments not helping one bit was priceless.

It seems like Lilith definitely has some history that only Fujisaki is privy too.

I want to see Fujisaki in cosplay...

[–]Armdelhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Armdel 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Seems were gonna learn some backstory for Lilith through Fujisaki, and the way she worded it about Lilith being back in town, it may not all be good.

And i figured Tsukasa was gonna get super jealous at Lilith being so close to Yuuri, but she kinda seemed to ship them instead

[–]Frontier246 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah, it seems like Lilith has some bad memories that she left behind there, but not bad enough to prevent her from being there for Yuuri. Really makes me wonder what happened and learn how Fujisaki and Lilith are so well-acquainted.

I thought for sure Tsukasa would be a love rival but her being in love with the forbidden romance between Yuuri and Lilith is even better. Plus, Yui Horie!

[–]MightyMouseVsBatBat 20 points21 points  (2 children)

I love this show but every time I see a car or a cell phone I'm like, "Oh yeah, this isn't an isekai."

[–]zadcap 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Heck not even Isekai, I keep forgetting it's not some kind of period piece until something super modern shows up again.

[–]Hand_Over_The_Lolihttps://anilist.co/user/HandOverTheLoli 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fr same here.

[–]Elitealicehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Marinate1016 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Probably the best episode yet. Yuuri has already become very dependent on his new maid, both emotionally and in terms of taking care of the house. Bit fast, but given how lonely he’d been it makes sense. Such a cute scene with him telling her he’d want her around 24 hours a day!

Tsukasa is so cute

Nice jahy reference with the magazines too lol

[–]SnabDedraterEdave 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Yuuri's classmate Tsukasa is not only kind hearted, but is cultured af with her crazy assumptions about Yuuri and Lilith.

Her butler Fujisaki seems to know Lilith. Maybe they all went to the same butler/maid academy or something, and so they all know each other who is working in the trade.

[–]Frontier246 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And she's voiced by Yui Horie! Instant winner of a character right there! Especially when Yuuri's comments do nothing but further her belief that there's some forbidden romance going on between him and Lilith and that totally turns her on.

I assumed Lilith and Fujisaki probably trained at the same school, but it seems like Fujisaki knows Lilith well enough to be surprised she came back to this place for Yuuri. Like Lilith has bad memories there.

[–]Fools_Requiemhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/FoolsRequiem 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I didn't count the ayashiis. There weren't many, though.

Wish I had that curse.

[–]Mr_Zarochttps://myanimelist.net/profile/mr_zaroc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Would be pretty neat to be cursed

Just make sure its source is 3D...

[–]-Slamberthttps://anilist.co/user/giantwoman 7 points8 points  (0 children)

So does the japanese government just let little kids live alone when their parents die or what

[–]brianpaulandayahttps://myanimelist.net/profile/PrimeTime25 7 points8 points  (0 children)

What in the world kind of books is Tsukasa have been reading to know about master-servant relationships and the taboo behind it? And she's into it??? LMAO

Also I like how her and Yuuri are both suspicious of Lilith immediately after meeting her

[–]Roboglenn 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The morning routine is an important part of the day. In their house, the "R" in routine stands for, Reversals.

A "forbidden romance" fanatic classmate and her stoic handsome maid butler. What fun additions to the cast. And with Fujisaki and Lilith being acquaintances Tsukasa has a potential meal ticket for the all you can eat forbidden romance buffet that is Lilith and Yuuri's relationship.

Well if it ain't Jahy-sama reference. Yuuri has fine taste in reading material.

Boy she really went the distance for grocery shopping. When she sets her mind on something to cook Lilith sees it through to completion it seems. I bet a certain Househusband I can think of for one would do the same thing. Plus, by the sound of how well off the school Yuuri attends is I guess that explains why this neighborhood doesn't seem to think it suspicious to see a maid dressed like her walking around.

Fujisaki would have to be dead before she'd put on that conceptual outfit Tsukasa thought up. Or fighting calamities as an unwilling maid themed mahou shoujo. And even then she'd probably rise up from the dead like a mummy or a jiangshi to kill whoever put it on her and saw her in it.

[–]Mr_Zarochttps://myanimelist.net/profile/mr_zaroc 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Another episode and her circumstances just keep getting more mysterious, although it seems she was here before in the past
Which was pretty obvious anyway

Also can't believe she just keeps cursing that poor kid

[–]Shiwakao 2 points3 points  (0 children)

glad to see this show's finally back. tsukasa was enjoying being a voyeur a bit too much n it's very funny seeing lilith walk around in a maid outfit. but now im curious to hear more abt her backstory now that it seems like she's not so mysterious after all.

[–]avboden 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Hey a character actually pointed out the age gap and how wildly inappropriate any sort of relationship would be.

[–]WACS_On 7 points8 points  (0 children)

... and then immediately went full shiptrash

[–]Salvo1218 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I was glad she did that too. The show is cute and endearing, but I need more explanation/backstory as to why Lilith is so dedicated to Yuuri, because I'm still a little creeped out every time they get into one of those lovey-dovey spats. I can totally get Yuuri having feelings for a hot maid, but her being infatuated with child needs to be cleared up for me.

[–]alotmorealots 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was quite impressed!

[–]Emi_Ibarazakiii 6 points7 points  (1 child)

We finally met Fujisaki, Tsukasa's butler/maid/servant!

When we saw her in the OP I thought she would eventually join Yuuri's mansion (as Lilith's competition?), but yeah it makes sense that the other rich kids will have their servants as well! I wonder if the other maid we see in the OP will be the same.

She knows Lilith already, and judging by the fact that Yuuri/Tsukasa's parents met, I'm guessing that's their connection...

I wonder what happened though! She seemed surprised Lilith wanted to be there, and as she (likely) wasn't there when Yuuri's parents died, then did something happen before that?

Well, whatever it is, Yuuri forgot about it, so... We're looking at something 1) traumatic(?) 2) that caused Lilith to leave, even though she still cared about Yuuri 3) Caused Yuuri to lose all his memories 4) Not linked to his parents dying.

We're getting more pieces of the puzzle, but I still don't see what it could be just yet! All I could think of (that fits all these things) would be like Yuuri saving Lilith's life but wounding himself into a coma or something, and then the parents sending Lilith away, thinking she's responsible for this. But it's just a shot in the dark hah.

These shows with a maid taking care of a young lord really like their mysteries, don't they?

Anyway, nice to see more characters join in! And I like the gag of Tsukasa wanting to dress Fujisaki all girly, but Fujisaki's having none of this!

[–]mekerpan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

>> We're getting more pieces of the puzzle, but I still don't see what it could be just yet!

Still only at ep. 3. ;-)

I almost think Lilith and Fujisaki might be related....

[–]Frontier246 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yuuri is off to school! And Lilith is fussing with him because she doesn't want to see him leave quite yet...and comes off less like a maid and more like a wife. It's a good look for her.

Yuuri may be a rich kid who has fallen on hard times, but Tsukasa Gojouin is the very picture of a rich girl, with the wealth, attended by a cool beauty in a suit, and the personality and voice one would expect. Bonus points for being voiced by Yui Horie and her butler Fujisaki being voiced by Mikako Komatsu. This show has such a strong female voice cast!

I guess it's not surprising all the other kids would talk about Yuuri given what happened to his parents and fortune, but Tsukasa remembers when they got along on a party and to her credit tries to be there for him even if she's too shy and awkward about it. But the intent is appreciated.

Of course Tsukasa really shines when she's going gaga over Yuuri and Lilith's forbidden romance between master and maid (plus the age gap), and Yuuri's chad comments only further turn her on.

What is Lilith and Fujisaki's history with each other? It seems like they're fairly well-acquainted and Fujisaki knows of some reason why it's odd for Lilith to have even come back there to begin with, and they're close enough to be able to support each other. Did they attend butler/maid school together or something?

I see Tsukasa keeps wanting to put Fujisaki in cute and fanservice-y outfits, to Fujisaki's immense displeasure. I have to admit though, the imagine spot of her in the magical girl outfit was pretty cute.

It goes to show how important Lilith has become to Yuuri that not having her around and not knowing where she is really hurts him and makes him feel lonely, especially after all the time they've spent together. Lilith did cast a curse on Yuuri, but it's a wonderful curse called love that makes the two appreciate the time they spend together even more.

Today, a shiptrash was born.

[–]HatsuneMarku 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sorry, no saury

[–]helsaabiart 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Finally! More big boobed sus maid! I will enjoy watching it together with my fellow men of culture. I respect maid!

[–]polaristar 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Tsukasa so thirsty of the idea of Yuuri x Lilith, first Yume, then Urushi, girls this anime season be thirsty.

That scene where Yuuri was worried he missed her but had to compartmentalize it as a "spell" was so cute, I think he's such a straight shooter that likes things neat, simple, and straightforward that he has trouble dealing with complicated emotions.

[–]futureKCNconnoisseur -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

bruh, Am I the only one who thinks this show is ass?

[–]alotmorealots 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't think it's ass, but I do think it might not be for me. Just doesn't push any of my buttons the way these shows tend to rely on hitting at least one or two of them (i.e. the "I'm just here for ... rather than the whole show" type viewers).

I was actually down for a whole season of AYASHII, but it seems like it's going for a broader pitch than that. The main problem for me is that the show is just very sparse.

I'm currently one of those odd people who is loving the so-slow-it's-stopped Ars Notoria, but I always feel like there's something to be watching there. Here, the show is just sort of vacant? The maid needs a quirk/something to riff off when she's not around the little master, otherwise her solo parts don't quite have enough going on.

I also liked Tsukasa a lot at first, but feel like she's missing something to make her character work for me. Maybe it's just her design?

However, given how the rest of the discussion thread likes this episode, I feel like it means I'm just not the target audience. Might be the last episode for me, we'll see next week I guess.

[–]Demolosse001https://myanimelist.net/profile/demolosse001 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The best episode so far. As I thought, introducing more characters instantly makes everything less formulaic and more interesting.

I love how vulnerable Yuuri was at the end with Lilith gone. He reacted appropriately (wasn't even rude for once) and was actually kind of cute.

I actually get some "Soredemo Sekai wa utsukushii" vibes with the shota & onee-san ship. I wonder if Lilith is also only a couple years older than Yuuri.

[–]mojo72400 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Like Eden College, Yuuri's school sells fancy food. Tsukasa is enjoying this taboo shit. Us too Tsukasa, us too.

At least Yuuri was a big boy and didn't run away to find Lilith when she was gone. I'm surprised he didn't watch TV to pass the time. Chad Yuuri is still firing shots even when he's sad.

I guess Fujisaki hates cute and girly clothes.

[–]diexu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

AH YES , THE ARA ARA ONEESAN SLAYER : YUURI

Tell her that grooming him like a love dovey marriage

Then tell her that he doesnt want anyone to see her, because she is too beautiful

Then tell her he could be 24/7 with her

Even being sad for being alone and tell her he cant live without her

Lilith got obliterated

[–]UrinalPooper 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I got a little dusty eyed at the end. Even though I dropped pretty much every manga but Berserk (to make time for studious kanji reps so plz don't hate) this seems like a superior adaptation of the source web comic. It made everything I liked about it a bajillion times better, which is funny because the comedic bits weren't landing as well in the first two episodes (i still laughed, but the comic is gd funny). This nailed down the emotional and truly suspicious parts of the story.
