I’m so happy that I can forget about all that failure from last week with this wonderful episode. *huggles ep 81* lol
And yay! I’m almost back to around 90-ish number of screencaps again! See, if I get slumped with ughness, quantity goes down. Not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing but I like taking a huge amount of screencaps so :P
*huggles* You poor kitty! He looks so tired and beat up! Did he really go searching for Ikuto during all this time after the fight?!
Amu! Take him home with you at the end of the day, feed him, give him a bath, and let him sleep in his own basket! Oh~, Yoruuuuu~! ;___________;
Let my Yoru sleep in the goddamn chair! Oh no, wait…
That’s better. ^^
Chairs aren’t that comfy to sleep in for too long anyways. :P
Ok, everyone needs to give Yoru a bear hug and pamper him like their lives depended on it NAO!
Ok, great, so this is where we really left off from last week. Screw the genki ending. *cutslappaste* Done!
I’m not sure if the time stretch between 80 and 81 was more than a day or not but it seemed like it. So that would mean it’s already been a little bit more or less than 48 hours since it’s been visually confirmed by Amu and Tadase that Easter has kidnapped Ikuto and the Guardians have gotten back together as a firm group.
I don’t care. We’re already proceeding into “Rescute Ikuto!” plan now and that’s all that matters.
AND YAY! AMU IS BACK! Goodbye, OOC clone!
Amuuu~, you silly girl! Where have you been all this time?! Do you know how worried I was?! *forgives her immediately and huggles her* I missed you~! ;3;
I’m really glad to see her so worried about Ikuto like how it properly should be. It’s not only because he’s been kidnapped and brainwashed by Easter and is sick on top of it all, but the fact that she still hurt him by yelling at him without believing him first is weighing down on her mind a lot. Even more because right now, she doesn’t even have the opportunity to apologize to him like she did for Tadase. And Amu doesn’t seem like the type of person who wants to let things just hang there and not do anything about
ep 78 does not exist. Her conscience won’t let her. And that’s why she’s such a good person. And that’s why I love her. :)
Haha, I really love Yaya, too. Even more now with every episode I see her maturing on her own. She really stole the human side of this ep for me…along with Nikaidou and all.
I really can’t wait to see how they will do the part where she tells everyone to get their act together and literally put “Rescue Ikuto” plan into full action. Because though it’s majorly Amu’s part to encourage others and support them, Amu is also human. She needs to experience some moments of loss so that she can come back stronger and better than ever. This is what makes Amu real and it gives a chance for her friends to come in and help her. To show that she isn’t all invincible and to reinforce the notion that friendship is an extremely crucial part of this series. It may not be as apparent to a lot of fans (cuz they’re always just looking at the romance, those shallow brats) but pay attention here and think for a moment.
How would ep 1 Amu gone from anti-social and cold to who she is now without joining and interacting with the Guardians? Hmm?
How would Amu have broken through her depression over losing Dia if she didn’t have her friends’ support?
Amu at that time was still weak as much as she was strong. Perhaps even so now. Which is what I like seeing a character, especially a shoujo heroine. There’s a good balance of a sense of righteousness with the innocent flaws and naivete that will eventually get fixed. And the best way to slowly fix the latter, for SC! in particular, is not so much through romance but strength established in close friendships.
Going back to Yaya, she really can’t comprehend the pain Amu is going through and she knows that. But that doesn’t mean she’s just going to sit around and make an emo face like everyone else is doing because she’s Yaya. You will never see Rima jump up and start yelling at everyone to get their asses to Easter like god demanded it himself
though Rima has been raised to god rank a while back, lol nor will you see practical Nagi suggest they storm Easter head-on without so much of a plan in mind first. They’re the more deep-thinkers of the group but even they need some time to really get into gear. So when Amu can’t fill in the defacto leader role, Yaya is the one for the job to zap them all out of sad mode and keep the whole gang moving.
& I wouldn’t have Yaya any other way. *spreads more Yaya love around* x3
WTF, KISEKI?! *SLAP!*
That’s beyond rude! I don’t care if it’s your effin’ room or your friggin’ bed! You DON’T fling people out of bed especially when they’re dead tired and sick! Especially if it’s Yoru!
Stupid little egotistical king (though I forgive him later).
Ok on more hard *SLAP!*
Kiseki, you’re an ass. And a jerk. Looking all smirky as if he finally got the chance to “be better” than Yoru but it only brought himself down more but he’s too stupid and arrogant to realize it.
Talking seriously, though, I think this part really brought some of the flaws Tadase had out into light. Since the Charas are more or less just one-dimensional characters, it’s easier to display the traits (and flaws) of their owners through them as a medium. They are representation of their owners’ inner selves so it makes sense. As the same, it’s also easier for them to make up for their mistakes in 10 minutes while it takes real people to make up for their own over a 10-episodes or more long period. But it works well hand-in-hand. At least this is kind of like variety and that’s good enough for me.
YORUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!! *HUGHUGHUG!* >.<
Don’t listen to Kiseki! We all know you tried your best! Don’t be discouraged, hun!
Yea, girls! You tell that bratty Kiseki to shove it up his touche! He seriously went too far this time!
Aha~, and I love it when a girls all gang up on a guy…over another guy. It’s funny to watch cuz the girls are always right in situations like these
majority wins. YEA, more power to us!
Erhem…yes, the scolding was needed. xD;
Aww, how like them. To go off by themselves and do their own little “Rescue Ikuto!” plan. Kyaa~, I love Charas~ <333
Though since they’re Charas…yea. |D;
What? Su! You’re not supposed to be using Yen coins! What happen to your mini-little whipper?! That was more effective! xD;
AWWW! KusuKusu wins RandomUnreliableRadar award this week for being the most cute! AWWWW!!! x3333
Ok, I forgive Kiseki. Besides, his methods of “apologizing” are too hilarious to keep me mad at him. xD;
NUUU! Where are you going?!
Kiseki, follow him! Dx
Seriously, Nana just dropped down onto the screen that you’d think they were all being pulled by strings from above. -.-;
Hmm…I’m kinda hoping that she’d just join them soon cuz the Charas, as fun as they are together now, can get more fun with Nana around…along with all the other Charas that aren’t present but I guess we’ll get to this another time.
Yea…I want another Chara filler where all of them are together before the series end. Can I have one? Please? 83
Miki, I love you. I really do. <3 Now just make a larger copy and glue it to Amu’s wall. Yes, the wall right next to her bed so this way she can think of Ikuto every night before she goes to sleep
crazy stalking fangirl talk going out of control and worry about him and everything. xD;
Haha, when I look at this over and over again, they really make it seem that Ikuto is more of lost house cat than a guy who’s been kidnapped. Now I’m expecting them to post Miki’s sketches of all over town with a monetary reward note plastered right on the bottom of each poster. “Have you seen this person? If so call Hinamori Amu at xxxx-xx-xxxx. You will be receive 1000 yen for your services.” *shot*
…but nah, I’d rather Amu find him herself cuz I want an emotional reunion anyway. lol xD;
That’s right, Lulu! Ikuto has nothing to do with you nor do you have anything to do with Ikuto’s arc! Good, I’m glad she has some sense not to mess with it so go back to your homework and concern yourself with only the Embryo and getting an awesome peptalk from Amu that will bring you back to the good side! That’s your only purpose for existing anyway! xP
Ah, but Lulu really is a…well, she’s terrible at playing a villain. No one denies that. Seriously, if she was that desperate to get the Embryo, homework would not get in the way. Which is also why Lulu fails as a kid. Look at all the main cast (except the adults). Since when has school ever stopped them? Therefore, Lulu = loser.
But perfectionists are perfectionists, I suppose. Keh, whatever. I’m just glad there was no ?-egg this week. There will be one next week but since Kuukai’s coming back, I don’t care cuz they gave him a reason to come back! :D
Well, at least she did something. ^^;
Man, now I really can’t wait to see the actual infiltration/invasion of Easter’s headquarters (through the friggin’ front doors!).
And I’m missing Saeki Nobuko, too. ;3;
And Rima is so small. SHE’S SO CUTE! xDDDD
ARGH! Stupid line in the middle! Someone please teach me how to do extended screencaps. I’m looking all over google for FAQs but I’m getting nothing. T_T
lol I love Yaya. I really, really do. Bet you $10 that she got this choo-choo-train dash all from Kuukai. xDD;;
We’re just missing…*counts*…4 people. :3
*gasp!* Yoru, you’re so brave and noble and heroic and…such an awesome Chara! *GLOMPS!* x333
It’s so cute how he’s so determined even when he’s so worn out. Aww, he’s so much like Ikuto~ <333
Though just like Ikuto, he’s a bit of dummy going off and doing things all by himself. Then again, he’s not as much of an idiot (though a lovable one) as Ikuto is because unlike Ikuto, Yoru does ask for help when he needs it…but that’s usually concerning Ikuto, too. o.o;
Well, anyways, yea, Kiseki! Go help your rival in his rescue mission! I don’t need to shove you now, do I? |D; (haha, I kinda wanted to add something in here but I’ll refrain from doing so till the end)
Just thought that this part was hilarious. They’re just like the guys (actually, they are boys, too, but you get what I mean). Always competing with each other over silly things and too proud and stubborn to be honest.
Though they have more sense in their own little mini-oversized heads than their owners do. :/
lol, Yoru. You look so tired. ^^;
Um, yea, I thought Kiseki knew that, too. Adults, especially evil stupid ones like the lame Easter MIB-cosplaying guards and their stupid director, can’t see Charas.
And the fact that Yoru does know his way around Easter cuz he’s been there a million times. Really, Kiseki. ^^;
Haha, of course the person the Guardians should go to about Easter is Nikaidou.
If you went to Utau or Yukari, who would most likely be with Utau at the same time, about a kidnapped Ikuto, you’d get killed right on the spot. xD;
MWAHAHA! So like Yaya to blurt in front of the WHOLE office about Nikaidou’s past. kahaha
Heh~, Nikaidou really knows how Easter works, too, so I’m not so surprised he’s more calm about it then they are. Still…I would be a little more concerned. -.-;
Like how Rima is here.
“I didn’t think that Easter would be so compassionate towards others” or whatever the translation is.
RIMA! I LOVE YOU! *huggles* <333
And you’re so right in thinking that cuz they aren’t cuz they’re all a bunch of bastards! Dx
But sadly, that’s how a villain company works. Ikuto (or at least his abilities) is too valuable to them to just toss away like that especially now that Utau quit and Lulu is a bunch of fail so they’ll have to let him “rest and recover” in order to get the Embryo the next time around. But they’re still bastards. Horrible, horrible bastards. *kills them*
AMUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!! *GLOMPS* X33333333333333333
Promise you’ll stay and never leave ever ever again! You’ll never make me go through suffering another OOC clone again, ok?! That’s a promise, ALRIGHT?! xDD;;
OHHHH my gawd, he took of his glasses! *fangirl scream* (Yes, I’m a little fangirl for Nikaidou, too, aha~)
And he used his evil Easter voice. That was cool. lolol
Oh lord, Nikaidou getting teased by Yaya.
…LGB, I read your latest one-shot for them and have got to say…that I absolutely LOVE it! xDDD Darn you and your crack pairings! I demand you write a Suukaidou for me! LMAO
Yes, I’m happy to see more sad, worried look shots from Amu (and then see some slightly happier faces afterwards). ^^
As much as I don’t like to say it, I admit that these next few fillers will be enjoyable in a small way or another. We at least get to see Amu worrying about Ikuto little by little yet more and more with each passing day when the Guardians really don’t have enough power to go against Easter yet. Though it’s still one big fat plot hole in the anime compared to the manga but I’ll let that slide for the sake of the anime being…the anime. *shrug*
Well, yep, more Amu worrying about Ikuto
as opposed to when she tried not to the first time he left xP makes me happy so no complaints. ^^
So cute. Both of them. Though Yoru is cuter because he looks so furious! haha xD
I know this was meant for comic relief but he’s so evil and despicable that I just sat there and went “hah? D| ” when he fixed the plant.
Um, yea, ok. It’s not like you got any redeeming points and it’s not like you ever will (even in the manga). :P
Ok, one thing I never understood was how the hell can these idiots be able to see the Charas when other Easter employees can’t? Then again, it’s anime and that’s reason enough (I say it’s because they’re scientists and scientists are always wacky one way or another). For the sake of the anime, just play along.
I’m curious to know why Yoru isn’t affected by all that X-egg energy when he touched the tuning fork…of course! It’s because Amu’s love for Ikuto is protecting Yoru as well! YAY! Love conquers all! lol XDD
Comic relief. Didn’t laugh. Easter employees are stupid. For one thing, these three idiots seem to forget that the MIB-wannabes can’t see Charas. Idiots.
Kiseki: “Be thankful that I got us out in time!”
So stubborn…so cute! haha xD;
(Ah, I knew there was something missing in this post. ^^; )
*throws rotten banana peels and uranium bombs at it* Dx
I was going to put something else but nah (and it’s not what you think!). xD;
Kyaa! He’s so cute! That determined face of his! *GLOMPS! x3333
I really, really love Yoru for his undying devotion towards Ikuto. I mean, all Charas are extremely loyal through and through to their owners but Yoru has got to be the most loyal one of them all…or he and Eru are rivals for that spot, anyways (haha, and they’re both Tsukiyomi Charas, ohh~ x3). I guess one thing that would kinda give him a lead is that Yoru stuck close to Ikuto no matter what the circumstances (even when he gets abused by Ikuto ^^; ) while the other Charas tended to run away sometimes when they get into fights with their owners. The ones with the major problems anyway.
But anyways…YORUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!! x33333333333333
Erm, ok, I managed to smirk here cuz these guys fail so much that you can’t help but laugh at it. Good job, idiots. The only thing you don’t fail in is to show us exactly how much you fail. xP
Ok, really, the air ducts weren’t even that small, I don’t think, so why are they both crawling on all fours is beyond me.
Again, just for lulz, I suppose.
Ok, I really laughed a little here. Just like Ran and the others to get caught up in amusing themselves while Yoru and Kiseki are running for their lives trying to escape. Ah, odd parallelism FTW.
So back to business…
LET KISEKI GO, YOU ASSHOLES! You’re suffocating him! *throws tables at them* D8<
It’s so obvious that Yoru isn’t going to just sell Kiseki to keep the tuning fork but this was still very nice to see. Inner conflict over saving Ikuto or helping Kiseki. And how can you chose?!
for the sake of fillers you can’t desert a rival-friend who came with you up to this point (sounds like an RPG). Still, yea, Yoru! Do what’s right!
Oooo, nice hit. ;D
Yoru is awesome.
He really is like Ikuto. Giving up something that’s inches within his grasp to save someone else (ok, let’s keep all our other thoughts on this to ourselves, please, lol). I think that’s one of the major reasons I really like anti-heroes. Because they can act selfishly…without having to look selfish, y’know?
lol Back to normal.
When they’re all gathered around together like this, it makes me think they’re ogling and cooing over a newborn, sleeping baby (and the sunlight shining down on them just adds to the atmosphere). ^^;
They even argue when they’re sleeping. How adorable. <D
Well, nothing’s “ending well” yet but Yoru and Kiseki seem to have gotten rid of their “You’re an enemy!” animosity towards each other. Now they’re just a pair of bickering friends but that’s all good because they’re friends now. Hmm…friendship. ^^
Yep, nice way to end this ep.
WAAAH! KUUKAI! XDDDDDD
Next week will be good no matter what cuz Sky Jack, peoplez! We haven’t seen Sky Jack in soooo long! hehe
And maybe I’m hoping a little way too early but if Kuukai continues to make more constant appearances, do you think Satelight might be smart enough to let him show up at the tower battle, too? Please?! That would be so awesome! And since this is an anime, we don’t have to follow by everything in the manga! We can make it better! So please?! Bring Kairi back as well?
Ok, ok, I’ll stop but can’t blame me for trying. I want all the awesome people in the awesome climax…cuz that’s kind of a rule in itself. lol XD;
So here’s the filler kid for next week. Hmm, I don’t think he’s that bad. His character design is kind of meh but there has been worst. Plus, I can’t help but wonder if an episode focusing on baseball is somehow indirectly advertising to viewers to go and watch one of Kanae-san’s main summer roles in Taishou Yakyuu Musume. I’m not the only one who got that message, was I? haha xD
Well, either way, I’m going to watch it even though I’m not really big on baseball. It’s one huge impressive female seiyuu cast alright. Can’t miss that. hehe
So yep. That’s all. Got 4 more posts to do but going swimming now. Bubu~ =3=
