episode entire show makes me so Genry Savvy that I can’t even hold back on laughing while being cynical. xD;
Lately, a lot of “headless” issues I’m encountering are all female for some reason. o.O;
lol, damn, this chapter sparked my interest for PH back to life again. Though I’m a little way off from doing that critical analysis I promised due to this heap of homework
that I refuse to touch until Sunday night, this was enough to motivate me to go back to writing about manga chapters. I’m pretty much going to keep them short (as in “Xiao” short, aha~ |D) as I can, trying to focus on the major points and all, so I can balance everything out but consider it small steps back to the thorough long ones.
Whether that’s a good or bad thing, you decide. haha~
Ok, anyways, yea, anything I’m giving my thoughts on is mostly restricted to this chapter, which works out nicely since it’s only some info revelation and character development. Other things like theories might be seeped in a little but we’ll save that for another day. ^^
It’s settled. The only reason I’m going to buy Kobato DVDs when they’re licensed is because I love Kobato and Doumoto the most. Everything else is nice as well (Okiura~ <3) except for Fujimoto, who I really don't honestly care for anymore (yes, for real this time) at this point.
Before I get into anything, let me just make it clear that this is NOT a post about shippings WHATSOEVER. Though it’s clear as day now that Doumoto seems to have growing affections for Kobato, if we know CLAMP and Madhouse, it’s quite obvious they won’t be a couple as long as Fujimoto’s there. And quite frankly…
Ok, I’m not really serious or anything as there were (very few) parts I did like about the second season but really, even all 12 episodes of it was not enough to satisfy me like the first 5 minutes into this OVA did.
…Well, that’s just me speaking partially biased but YEA. :P
Anyways, yay~, I finally get around to writing a post about it. Been too busy with school, subs were late, HD quality raw wasn’t available until like Sunday and so on.
I originally wasn’t going to blog this either but it impressed me so much that I wanted to (add the fact that I recently marathoned this whole series so the hype is still going strong, hehe x3). Plus, it’s only 4 OVAs so it should be easy to do.
Yay, another episode that impressed me this week. It impressed me so much that I went back into my old habit of taking an assload of screencaps (52 to exact). Not exactly up to my old SC! standard (which went up to 90 sometimes) but it’s still a lot. lol XD;
Ah~, I thought I would have a lot to say with this as well but it all wore away since I’m so dead tired so I’ll try to make this as quick as I can. Though I probably go off rambling on one topic or another but we’ll get to it when we get to it. ^^
Ah, a little late today because I woke up late. Then again, the torrent was late, too. :/
Well, yea, first of all, Happy 4th of July, Americans! :D
I’m currently at home alone cuz I decided not to go out with my family so I’ll probably be spending the rest of my evening doing either blogging, hwk, or some other stuff.
As for the episode, there is a lot to cover but I think this might have ended up shorter than my usual ones. I give reasons as to why somewhere in the middle of my review so I won’t explain them here. But before I get into anything…
NOTE: I do NOT want people talking too much about chapter 42 on this post. I have a chapter review post coming up so save all your thoughts for that when it’s actually up. Keep to the topic of the episode. Any other too-irrelevant comments will be deleted. I seriously don’t have the patience to deal with the crazy fangirls who can’t learn to deal.
^^ <– Still smiling.
Ah, I really don't have a lot to say except that I'm satisfied (and that I was wrong in my half-predictions again but then again, I almost never get those right, lol) and happy and…well, just content with how all things turned out.
Gah, sorry. I really can't get over finally finishing Gurren Lagann yesterday so my mind is kinda distracted from SC! a little until next Friday. It's been on my mind the whole entire night so that's why the review is a bit later than usual. Too busy searching for images and fanfics. xD;
I really enjoyed this episode. ^^ It caught me by surprise that…well, I was right. They’re really starting to close off Lulu’s arc and I can’t ask for a better way of going about it. Hmm, well, I save the rest of my thoughts for the episode review
Just wanted to say before I start that there’s not much to say for most of the episode so expect lots of cute image spamming. Especially my beloved daughty~ <333
First of all, congratulations to Peach-Pit and Shugo Chara! for its success! Over 2,500,000 copies! Woot! Everybody, give the awesome manga-ka duo a big round of applause! *clapclapclapx1000* xDDD
And my god, I still can’t get over how wonderful and absolutely beautiful this month’s splash page is. Oh god…I think I’m really tearing up inside cuz to see Amu look so grown up and mature after watching her progress from the beginning (over and over and over again, I must add) to the girl, no scratch that, the young lady she is starting to become…words cannot even express how proud I am of her. And after reading this chapter, I really felt that I was on the brink of crying inside. Which is rare for me because I can be uberly sad for any of the characters I love very deeply but I’ve never been so moved enough to cry. I have come close to it, I won’t deny that. *not immune to watery eyes* But…yea.
Well, as always, I’m prepared to go into full and furious analytical mode for this chapter. But before I do that, I just want to warn anyone who has any severe complaints that…you need to leave now. I have gotten everything I expected for this climax and even more. If you’re still not satisfied about something that should be at least minimally understandable, then go somewhere else to rant about it. Don’t do it on my blog. I’m sick of people complaining. This goes to show that you don’t know how to read shoujo at all. And yes, there are unwritten rules that the genre follows by. It might be predictable, it might even be cliche but if you’re just going to settle or saying “Ugh, this sucks. I’m bored, I was expecting better”, then you’re obviously not putting enough effort into thinking about it as I am. And therefore, you obviously won’t take what I have to say seriously either.
So buzz off.
lol Ok, this episode was pretty easy to follow even without the subs so I think it’s going to be a little shorter with just a lot of image spams. But it’s okay, cuz in my opinion, you really can’t get the whole awesomeness of this episode without watching it. So if you didn’t watch it yet, go watch it!
