My, we are asking some very deep questions tonight, aren't we?

I think we reached the conclusion that straight as male=straight as female in these circumstances, Goddess knows we hashed it out enough while ACE was female!

Remember Brooke's flashback at the slumber party? She explained to Nina why she shouldn't be angry at Layla for "eating" her friend Chloë, and why she is a vegetarian. It starts here. So, Brooke knows the school rules and Professor Twigitt doesn't? Totally in character for both of them. (And Brooke does pretty well even when she is the focus.)

I've never owned a cat, but I hear they can be downright annoying during heat... :p

By the way, Bob Barker reminds all of us to help control the pet population, have your pets spayed or neutered.

Have you seen the one guy and the girls? Far far far from a harem.

What makes a harem anime a harem anime isn't that it's one guy and a lot of girls, it's that that one guy is the primary focus, and the girls, whether there's interest or not, are treated in relation to him. Ace is barely seen, and likely won't be the only guy (or possibly even a guy) at some point in the near future. The same could be said for Kade a few chapters ago.

It depends on your definition. One definition is one guy, living with a bunch of girls. It has been argued that the first harem show was Tenchi Muyo

Yes but Tenchi did actually have multiple rivals for his affection.

More importantly, he was the main character, and all the girls were defined first and foremost by his perception of them. It's not unusual for whole chapters to go by without Ace, and he's mostly seen through the eyes of the female characters, not vice versa. What's more, he's not the only guy and never has been: if you don't count Kade (which you probably should, now that it looks like we're close to understanding the curse), there's still Dio, who showed up right after Ace was turned back and doesn't seem to be going anywhere, at least not without taking Layla with him, which seems a tad unlikely. If anything, you should have been complaining about Kade being Tenchi back when it looked like Ace had a very real chance of living out his life as a woman (of course, he wasn't much of a POV character until the love triangle).

My, my, this is one of the steamiest updates so far!! :-o

I missed people arguing that this was already too much for PG-13. :P (It's not. But some people seem to confuse PG-13 with PG or even G...)

FTFY :P

Concerning the fact that so many guys seem to be macking with Kade... I'm unsure how clear it is to them that she was once a guy, and that she will likely be a guy again - as in, they see her as a new student. Also, it's teenage boys! Looks like a girl, smells like a girl, feels like a girl!! DIVE IN!! =p~

You are aware how horrible a double entendre that last sentence of yours is, right?

I must say that while I'm going to miss the sexy manly Kade, this newer female version is growing on me
mainly because now he/she is no longer being kept on Layla's leash
I mean, before his main role was hen-pecked boyfriend, but now her character has some good potencial to evolve
