BAMF Shichika is f*ckin' HAWT. Nuff said. 8DD
I’M FINALLY FRIGGIN’ DONE!!!! FWAAAAHHHH! *strikes FIERCE! pose*…WAAAHHHH, IT ENDED! *cries in a corner* T_________________T
…*recovers* Erhem…Whee~ Hey, guys! I’m truly, REALLY sorry for the huge delay. Wow, I never thought I would push it all the way into the New Year. GOMEN! >.<
But I have a somewhat good reason for it since this marks as the first and only episodic show so far that I have EVER finished doing episodic posts for
ignore the month-long delay for ep 11, lol so I want to make this a good post…even if I have a few not-so-complimentary stuff to say, I want this to be a MASTERPIECE! Which means…it’ll be long…yyyyeeeeeaaaaahhhh~ Aorii-san, you asked for it. lawl~ ;D
And what I meant by “masterpiece” also includes some pointless egg-brained random ranting as well so prepare yourself for that. THIS IS XIAO’S COMEBACK AND NOTHING’S STOPPIN ME, Y’HEAR?! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTT! *GOES CRAZY*
So let’s get this underway, shall we? I’ll briefly hit over the important points along with some scenes I found funny and/or special and go a little “WWWWWWWWAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!” at the end cuz it was just AWESOME. 8D
Kyaaaaaaaaaa~~~~~~~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s finally here after both the raw and subs being a month late. But I don’t mind.
No, I really did. I’m just lying because I’m in a good mood. :P The only ones who do and would pay attention to this awesome series are people who could get their hands on the books and dvds first anyway. In other words, I should’ve stayed in Japan a little longer. Durr… D/
But whatever! I couldn’t get an this in .mp4 format like I wanted to but fortunately, .mkv works just as fine.
That aside, “Yume-miru Shoujo no Prelude” (Prelude of the girl who gazes into dreams) is the first out of three prequel OVAs (titled “Memoire”) to the movie, which will be released on DVD at the end of next month. It covers the events centering around Touko prior to her meeting Konoha and instating him into the Literature Club.
And god, was this the prettiest thing I’ve seen all year. *A* I.G. Production
or is it the other way around? has outdone themselves. Opinions may vary on the animation since at times, the characters’ faces don’t seem that great to me but overall, the visuals, the music, the voice acting, etc, it’s all near perfect! And it couldn’t have been more awesome without my beloved Touko-chan~! <333
So! Getting things underway, let's discuss! 83
WARNING! SEMI-SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE NOVEL!
Well for those were even expecting some screentime on the fight between Shichika and Hakuhei, you were just massively TROLLED…
Same here, actually, though it wasn’t that much of a shock but I wished they could’ve at least given us some flashbacks. All that EPIC battle was reduced to 30 seconds of last week’s preview. :P
Otherwise, this was still a good episode with the focus on (FREAKYAWESUMNEE-CHAN~!) Nanami enough to make up for all the action we didn’t get to see…even though it would have been great if we had double the Kyoutouryuu action. *pokes foot into floor sulkily* =3=
And it’s funny because we probably saw more actual fighting in this one ep than the first three combined. I’m betting the following ones won’t promise much either. Shame. <P
The flowers everywhere were very purdy, though. Purdy~ *flowers* 8D
Yea, I'll just start now since I have lot to ramble on anyway. Haha. |D;
This what you get when you mess with the Boss.
Srsly, I’ve gone Mikado-obsessed so bad, I spent like more than an hour changing all my icons. xD;
Mikado, please make me your consort. *huggles this badass cutie so hard* x333
No other description is needed for this ep that is packed with SO. MUCH.
Excuse my utter incoherentness from the explosion of fangirling today.
I must have watched this episode a dozen times already because THIS is what I wanted! THANK YOU, BRAIN’S BASE!!! I will love you forever if you give me MOAR!!! X33333
I couldn’t decide on a front image so I picked the two most awesomest focuses instead. F*CKYEA FOR SOME VIOLENT SHIZU LOVIN’, BITCHES!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! >8DDD
And my OTP~ It’s still kinda early to declare any OTPs, especially for me cuz I usually do it mid-way through, but I don’t care! I have a good feeling about this one and when Xiao has a good feeling about potential OTPs, stay clear of her way. I’ll maul down everyone who says otherwise, y’hear?
So anyways…o’course, I got alots to say.
It’s almost proportional to the number of screencaps I have which this time, is 98, lolol.
And you know it! Long post is loooooooooooonnnnnnggggggg… 8D
No, no, this isn’t a lame joke. I AM quite AWESOME, Mikado.
Oh god, I love everyone in this show and the show itself SO. FRIGGIN’. MUCH. <333 <– Mentioned it for the second time.
First episode like all first episodes start off as introductory setup and also "WUT? That was not what I wanted" letdowns but DRRR! kinda balanced everything out quite evenly. And there were quite a few things going on at the same time. Mikado and Kida catching up with each other and touring around Ikebukuro, the kidnapping, the "Black Rider" pwning a group of misfits…*goes on and on*
I got to hand it to Brain's Base for pulling it off so well. I've seen it done in Baccano!, which I had much trouble trying to keep up with in the first place, and it's done here again in a manner I'm more than happy with.
But this is getting me nowhere so just read on…
Yes, I know it’s a week early but as of next Wednesday, it’s going be two years since TTGL, the anime, ended aka the final episode where two of my all-time biggest favorites (oh god, I’m using “favorites” so you know it’s serious) got married~!!! <333 …And then made my heart cry a thousand Niagra Falls for what happened a minute after.
Damn, I love this pairing so much that I’m still finding it hard to accept the ending…which I did and probably won’t ever…but I like the ending…but…yea…oh god, now I want to watch it just to cry again. TT_________TT
*cough* Eh, before I really get into full rambling LOVE mode, yea, what an odd way to do a post, huh? Well, I figure if fanboys can have their waifus, AMV makers their pelvic thrusts, and the rest of you with your oddities, then I think it’s just DAMN right I make a post and banner (which everything but the fading text is all credit to YoruAngel866) to commemorate the strongest OTP in my pairing cache!
So about why these two awesome people are so awesome together…
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!
I…effin’ loved this episode. So if you don’t, get off. Right now. Don’t mean to be rude but no one in the right mind should cross me when I’m enjoying myself. So anyone who complains about the Ikuto arc should just shove it. This was a great filler that could stand on its own and didn’t detract from anything at all. Save your whining for when the plot actually comes back. Everyone else is welcome to join me in my uber “KYAAAAAA~~~~~~!!!!!!!!”-fest. ^^
Ah…omg, I don’t know where to start cuz this was probably the best non-plot filler ever. I don’t know if it was owed to the great popularity of Rie Kugimiya or anything but I am happy with it even if she wasn’t Yua’s seiyuu. Lessee, I got a cute filler girl whose dream to be a singer was not related to Utau in anyway (F*CK YES, BITCHES! This girl dreams for herself!), very awesome cute shots of the main girls (OMG! Is this a girls-filled week or what?!), Utau showing up (though I’ll probably be killed when I say I wasn’t excited to see her as I would have been…go ahead, shoot me, I have my reasons), a LOL at Nagi and…dammit, let’s just get on with the review. XD
Ack, two more hours and I have to go. Sorry but this is going to be a rushed post with few screenshots (I’ll try to take the ones I think are best but WMP Classic is not working right now so I have to use WMV and Paint, OMG. o.O; )
