“I film a callback for this pirate thing which is called Black Sails, and which still only my mother has seen along with a few remaining suckers who subscribed to the flagrant swindle that is Showtime. And I film this thing on my phone by myself in a Norwegian dressing room wearing three jumpers, a pea coat and a scarf, and cropping the frame close so they can’t see how skinny I am and I get the fucking thing. I get the fucking pirate thing. Casted as the not-butch talky pirate. Every pirate show needs one of them.”
Ok, let me try to explain this. No, I didn’t screw it up with his name.
In good old Peru there’s a expression “¡Sao!” we use when a boy has said or done something in a flamboyant way. Like, if you come to Peru and after some mannerism or whatever, someone says “Sao!”, then they think you just did something very gay XD.
Ryuu’s surname is Zaou, which sounds awfully similar. Let’s just say that, if the show had happened here, it wouldn’t have been Akoya the one being mocked because of his surname. Then again, if he had been born here, his name would’ve been Ricardo Zapata or some shit like that.
And why is he wearing a skirt? Because, for a parody of the maho shoujo genre, Boueibu is severely lacking in the crossdressing department. Yeah, I know they do crossdress in the game, but where’s my school play episode? With the prettiest boys being cast as the girls, and Ryuu and Akoya fighting over the protagonist role (who, of course, is a princess), only for idk… En being cast as her.
Make it happen season two. Although I should be praying for season tow to even happen in the first place.
