Shuukan Soine CD series is a series in which your boyfriend cuddles next to you and talks with you until you fall asleep. Each CD features a different type of character, and lets you experience a different type of boyfriend.
This time your boyfriend is Yuki (CV: Inoue Kazuhiko) a hair and makeup artist. It seems like he has his own salon, and appears on television regularly. The result is that he has become sort of famous, and that fans sometimes approach him while you are on dates.
The CD starts with you coming out of the shower, and apparently your hair is still a little bit wet. Yuki -of course- immediatly complains that sleeping with wet hair will damage it and dries it for you. You also look tired making him wonder whether you have been doing your skincare propely. Luckily he just had some test products delivered, so he puts on some creme for you (ah, a boyfriend who does your makeup)
When you can't sleep Yuki tells you a story from a picture book that he liked since he was a child. It is a story about an ugly girl. Her mother and her sisters are all beautiful, yet she isn't pretty. One day there is a large ball, but the girl doesn't go saying that she still has work to be done. That night, as she is doing her chores, a magician appears. The magician says he will make her beautiful for this night, as a reward for the fact that she always works so hard. And so the girl, now transformed into a beautifull princess, goes to the ball and falls in love with a prince there. However she suddenly leaves, thinking that he could never love her real form. A few days later however, the prince visits her house, saying that her initial on the handkerchief she left led him there. The girl thinks he could never love her, but the prince convinces her he does, and the two marry. And over time, there was no-one in the whole country that would call her ugly, because they were so happy together.
Yuki almost starts another story, as a sort of 'extra' to this one: Once upon a time there was a little boy, who was a bit paler and more fragile than the rest of the children. He never liked himself, until one day his mother read him a picture book about an ugly girl who was transformed into a beautiful princess by magic. And from that day on, it became the boy his dream to turn all the girls in the world beautiful by his magic.
This is of course a story about Yuki himself, how it became his dream to be a hair and makeup artist. He references to his work as 'his magic' a lot, and calls you his princess. He also seems to love doing your hair and makeup - he makes you promise he can do your makeup before you go on your date tomorrow.
Yuki seems sort of mature, but also fun. He teases you a little, but is also serious at the same time. He really feels sorry for not being able to be with you that much, and is worried that he is not able to make you happy. I loved listening to him, but I expect that also has something to do with the fact that he is voiced by Inoue Kazuhiko.
Inoue-san talks about his recording in the freetalk. How his stomach rumbled a few times, or that his knees or ankles made noises while walking around, resulting in retakes. (and that the mic is pretty sensitive, so he took of his shoes for the recording). In his final message as Yuki his voice suddenly drops, taking me completely by surprise.
For me the main reason why I loved this was Inoue-san his voice, although Yuki does seems like a fun person. Besides, how often do you find a boyfriend who is willing to do your hair and makeup?
