Picture Drama 7: Stage 9.33

 

Review by Chris Guanche

January 9, 2008

 

Summary

 

At Ashford Academy the members of the student council are dragged into Milly's latest strange activity: a cross dressing party. Kallen is dressed as a high school delinquent, Nunnally as Lelouch, and Milly as a swashbuckler. Kallen isn't too thrilled about the idea, and Milly explains that they're doing it again because it was well-received last year. They're joined by Sayoko, dressed as a butler, Nina, dressed as an English boy and Shirley, dressed as a police officer. Milly asks Lelouch if he's done changing, and he tells Suzaku not to open the door because he has to mentally prepare himself. Lelouch doesn't like being dressed like a proper lady, and he's joined by Suzaku, dressed as a Japanese schoolgirl and Rivalz, dressed as a busty maid. Milly rushes into the room and is amazed by how beautiful Lelouch looks. Lelouch is embarrassed, and Rivalz tells him to lighten up. Milly announces that to have a true gender reversal festival, they need to change their hearts as well, so she addresses Lelouch with a man's voice. Everyone else plays along, and when Kallen notes that Suzaku seems to be catching on quickly, he explains that he's forced to do this all the time in the military for laughs. Sayoko then addresses Lelouch as Luluko since many Japanese girls have a -ko suffix in their names. Milly and Shirley then tease Lelouch by declaring their love for Luluko. The teasing becomes too much for Lelouch, and he declares that he's had enough.

 

Commentary

 

There's not much to this picture drama, aside from some laughs at Lelouch's expense. It's kind of scary how good he looks as a girl. Suzaku is quite comfortable as a Japanese schoolgirl in a sailor outfit, but it seems as though cross dressing isn't new to him. The idea of Kallen as a high school delinquent fits pretty well, since at times she can act so aggressively. It's also not surprising that Sayoko would cross dress as a butler.
