Let The Second Semester Begin
Welcome to the World of Otomege
Butler is chapter 57 of the Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai light novel series. It is chapter nine of volume five.
SummaryEditOn the third day of their new semester, Kodaka arrives at the clubroom and is welcomed by Yukimura, now donning a butler's uniform. Amidst the confusion, Yozora explains that it is the second version of her training to Yukimura and preaches that a true man emanates manliness even if that person is biologically female. While Kodaka is taken aback by Yozora's speech, Yukimura instead expresses delight towards it. Kodaka then remarks that he is aware of Yukimura's determination but asks why a butler. Yozora explains to Kodaka that butlers can do anything for the sake of their masters and regards them as warriors, which Yukimura strives to become. Sena and Rika add about the growing popularity of cute girls wearing butler outfits and state that Kokonoe Mebaru from 'Chicken Butler and Mayonnaise' is the primary source and example, much to the surprise of Yozora. While Yozora is skeptical about the fact, Sena points out to her about Stella, a steward of their estate, who is also an attractive woman and works as a butler. Though Yozora does not know who Stella is, Kodaka explains to her that she was the one who picked them after the summer festival. Yozora then asks if it is weird for a capable woman (like Stella) to works as a butler, but Sena explains that it is what makes Stella moe (attractive), which left Yozora puzzled on the kind of "moe" Sena is talking about. Rika compliments Yozora for making Yukimura wear a butler uniform, and Yozora murmurs to herself that she failed yet again. Yukimura remarks that she will serve Kodaka at her best with the clothes provided to her by Yozora before making a bow to him.
- "Kokonoe Mebaru from Chicken Butler and Mayonnaise" is a parody of the light novel series Mayo Chiki! and its protagonist Konoe Subaru.
