MEI-CHAN: A Butler and His Lady

Mei-chan and her cradle robbing, grandfather approved butler boyfriend

I've been reading the Mei-chan manga, which I thought i had tried to read before, but the drawings in the manga I remember and what im currently reading are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT, so now I'm bothered by the fact i have no idea what i tried to read before...

regardless (and forgive me for being so posty the last couple of days - sick kid = random boredom throughout the day), i've been reading it, and generally enjoying it - especially comparing the drama to the manga.

Like the fact that Mei is 13, Rihito is (as far as I can figure, 21), and in the very first chapter, her grandfather told Rihito that grandpere wanted Rihito to marry Mei, so he might as well sleep with her to tie her to him.

To his credit, he promptly pointed out the age difference, but didnt go into the fact the thought was incredibly CREEPY.

however, in chapter 18, Rihito just swooped in and kissed her.

SHE'S THIRTEEN.

Oh, Japan.


ETA: on the other hand, grandpa Hongo's permission to Rihito and various other things (Rihito slumping down onto the floor after kissing Mei, Zoicite putting the moves on Mei with a bit more aggressiveness) DO make me think thinky things about writing.

I find that I almost unconsciously add five to ten years to character's ages when reading manga and watching anime. It's a self-defence mechanism, because otherwise I'd be throwing the books across the room or screaming at the screen.
Creepy, yes. And yet, why does this make me want to read it more...
I'd heard the manga Mei-chan was a bit loli, and had no intention of checking it out. Truthfully, I'm surprised that it's enjoyable!

I'm thrilled that you're thinking about Mei-chan fic again. I may have something in the works, too.
I ALSO WANT TO POINT OUT THAT MY THEORY OF SHIORI SEXUALLY ABUSING RIHITO IS CORRECT. AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
I feel that I should be shocked by this news, but I can't quite manage it. Are we talking subtext, or in your face confirmation?

I'm going to have to read the manga. *cries*
in your face confirmation!

like, she's naked and wrapped around him while he's drugged out of his mind and NAKED and oh, by the way, Mei and Kento are both RIGHT THERE WATCHING.

(and yes, yes you are. i wish there was more of it, but it's only up through ch 32. And here it is!)
Okay, now I'm shocked.

*eyes link warily*

If I'm traumatized for life, it's on your head! I actually just skimmed the last chapter. Nezu is pretty damn fine. And looks older than twelve!</em>
i find it less weird and traumatizing than some mangas ive read. you should be fine. mostly.

Nezu IS pretty damn fine. and Kiba is STILL ADORABLE.

also, there is one plotline where Kento dresses like a girl so he can talk to Mei, and Daimon falls in love with her/him. Mei gets him over this in a HILARIOUS way.
Oh, Japan. I'm not even surprised any more - I'm pretty sure Usagi in Sailor Moon was 13, and Mamoru was a university student, so...yeah.

That said, I kind of want to check it out now? Maybe Japan only does it because it hits our kinks. :/
*here via f-list*

After learning about the manga, 16~ Mei-chan and 19-20~ Rihito in the drama suddenly seemed SO MUCH BETTER. (Actually, it didn't bother me before, either, but...)
