Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji Season 2Release Date
A desire for acceptance is something that most of us can relate to, and at times that can drive us to certain extremes. It’s a premise that is not necessarily unique, but for a shoujo series it actually is. The cliched trope of a spineless heroine and her tsundere love interest is all too common. However this series provides us with a slight variant; our main character is a compulsive liar with a penchant for emotional punishment (read: she’s a masochist) that happens to, in a series of poor decisions and bad judgment, land herself a two-faced jerk who is content to treat her like a dog.
Originality is not this anime’s forte, per se, but it is successful as a romantic comedy because it is uncommon. The two main leads seem initially very unlikeable, but if you accept the fact that they mutually (consensually) engage in something of a sadomasochistic relationship—that neither one seems to want to disband even when given the chance—then the series provides some amusing comedy.
While Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji definitely can provide entertainment, laughs, and “the feels”, it’s definitely not for everyone. Kyouya’s initial behaviour most certainly comes across as overly brusque at first. Take it from someone who was agonizing for hours over why she thought Ookami Shoujo was all right, though: he does get better, a lot better. As does the anime. Episode 8 and up ought to be pretty easy to get through, in fact, especially episode 10, which is probably my favourite, and really recommended if you want to see how tolerable the anime gets as a whole. I hope there will be another season! A second season is what’ I will always be waiting for.
