Crossdressers from Venus and Mars
On shoujo genre there are right now two shows that have some similarities, Ouran high school host club and Princess princess. I have only watched first and tenth episode from Ouran, latter one I follow regularly. The difference of the popularity between those two is huge and you may wonder why I as a quite devoted shoujo-fan don't watch FHaruhi at all. Bishies don't belong to my favourites when it comes to anime, but to be honest that's not real problem here.
The thing is, I really would like to watch it, but I just don't find it funny. It's not "okay, I saw one or two funny jokes and rest were boring"-type, more like total miss. As I mentioned before I checked tenth episode just to be sure, but it was same as the first episode. There wasn't single joke I liked. I guess I just have to accept it.
On other hand, Princess princess is fine example of good comedy series. I was actually surprised to when I found out how good it is. The "story" can be explained in one sentence, it's basically 3 boys dressing like girls in order to continue their school's tradition. The series has strong slice of life taste within it, we get to see their everyday school life and problems how to fit studying, life outside the school and duties of princesses together.
Main cast, at least in anime, don't have any relationships between each other, but one has girlfriend(!). Which raises questions if PriPri is shounen ai at all. So far there have been one kiss (not that what's in screenshots) between boys without any emotions and quite fanservice-ish ED that I don't mind much. Some probably consider that those are enough, I think it's just shoujo. In conclusion Princess princess isn't for everyone, but what is?
