Everything else are my photos of the chapter (so no HQ images here, sorry). I didn’t want to go through the hassle of scanning them when scanlations came out just as I got the issue anyways.
Ack, I really wanted to do a review for Chapter 39, too, but time didn’t allow me. TAT No matter, I guess. I can always save my explanations for certain moments and my SQUEE! fests when it gets animated (so please don’t screw it up, Satelight, please).
Anyways, you know the deal, spoilers ahead for those of you who haven’t caught up.
Ignore the watermark. I just cropped it.
Look at the expression on Amu’s face! I mean, yes, I know that this was a very significant sibling moment between Ikuto and Utau (Ikuto finally says he’s not going to keep turning happiness away anymore, yay!) but ever since his whole arc started (aka when he crash landed into her bed) and she got to spend more time with him and hence, get to know him better, Amu has unconsciously began to slowly let her own feelings for Ikuto come to the surface.
Meaning, from the point where she started believing that he was not an enemy changing to when she wanted to help him out when he was on the run from Easter and now going back full circle to the time when she asked herself “It feels a little sad that Ikuto’s leaving.”
Of course, I do not deny that a large part of all that started as a genuine gesture of friendship because honestly, that’s really how all love starts. I count the small innocent crushes in there as well so the same also applies for Tadamu. Even if this is shoujo and love confessions are quite common to sometimes the point of exaggeration, you wouldn’t just give your feelings without knowing a person first, right? Not counting the heroine’s naivete in what she thinks is “love”, attraction is one glance-at-the features thing but attachment is certainly another. Attachment grows when you spend more time with someone and get to know them, and therefore, develop some sort of friendship to serve as the initial foundation of that love, whatever kind it may be.
I’m saying this because I don’t want people to start making lame accusations like “WHAT?! Are you saying that Amuto is just a friendly relationship?! She only likes Tadase because she always thought he was cute!” or “HA! See! Amuto is really just all about them being friends and while in Tadamu, they actually told each other their feelings! The hug she gave Ikuto was just because they were buddies!”
Shut up and let me finish what I have to say, bitches.
Amu is “in love” with two guys, both of whom she is on good trusting terms with (without the romance interfering). Which is why her feelings and her heart are greatly confused. Understandable because she is only a 12/13-year old girl. You cannot expect her to suddenly realize “Oh! Now I know what love is now!” No. If you just think the way she acts around each of them will be enough to define who she really has affections for, then you are like her in what she only perceives as love AND worse in that you’re letting your fangirl fantasies run ahead of the critical-thinking parts of your brains (if you even have any).
You have to understand that feelings work on so many different levels but it’s not hard to see when one interaction between two people have such a great effect on either one. When Tadase confessed to Amu, she was thrilled and extremely happy that her crushed liked her back. She was blushy and giggly, heart going dokidoki! very fast with her head on cloud nine. The same as she’s always been when she’s around him. A school girl around a boy she likes.
When Ikuto confessed that she was the one he liked, she was very surprised, got a second of exhilaration (which I think all girls would get when they’re confessed to, regardless of who that guy is), and then slightly angry and even a little hurt because she thought he was just fooling around again. She hit him because she didn’t want him toying around with her feelings but stopped when he looked at her in such a sad way.
When he smiled at her, a smile so filled with overflowing love and gratitude over how far she’s gone to save him, and said to her so seriously and determined “This time, I’ll be the one to protect you“, Amu was so taken aback that she couldn’t even respond. But it wasn’t only because she was so shocked or happy that Ikuto said that to her. It was also because she couldn’t readily comprehend the huge wave of mixed feelings, old and new, that hit her when he said that. The way he said those words struck her in a way, caused her to react in a way that Tadase’s were not able to do. Whereas with Tadase, she was only happy while with Ikuto, her frustrations about him melted away, her sympathy and the pain she felt for him – with him – merged with the emotions she stubbornly tried to suppress because she thought they were brought about only by his teasing, and therefore, what she considered “not serious”. Basically, she doesn’t understand what she’s experiencing right now but the fact that she’s experiencing A LOT of emotions all at the same time still stands. And it was all caused by Ikuto. Ikuto was able to make her feel this way. Just by saying that he truly wanted to protect her, he was able to draw such a reaction from Amu.
And the way Amu glances towards the siblings’ direction like that in this panel somewhat shows the lasting effects of that brief yet deep exchange. Even though Amu and everyone else know how close Ikuto and Utau are as siblings, Utau is nonetheless, still a girl. A girl Ikuto treasures very much. Even though Amu knows Utau is his sister, she looks a little lonely here and perhaps even a little envious of Utau on how close she is to Ikuto, something that Amu has not accomplished with him yet (at least not to or above the extent of Utau’s level). And it’s definitely understandable to feel that way. Ikuto and Utau are family, a family where they only had each other to rely on. Amu is an outsider who didn’t live through the same things they did and can only understand so much even after seeing Ikuto’s memories of his past. Of course, she would feel a little left out.
But the point here is, she’s starting to look towards him in a way she’s never done before (in a way she’s never looked at Tadase either). She’s starting to feel sad and lonely without him. Almost as if she wants him to stay by her side. It’s not so clear to her now but some part of herself is beginning to acknowledge that Ikuto is more than just an important friend to her. And with that, I think it’s safe enough to say that she will one day realize she really does love him. Not just like him, but really, truly love him. All they just need to do is solve the Easter problem and give their relationship a little more time to develop. And if/when Amu and Tadase can/will come to terms with each other that although they get along, they just don’t work out as a couple because they don’t need each other like how Ikuto needs Amu and vice versa. Easier said than done but it shall be done! *strikes a determined pose*
Ah, yes, I think I’ll stop there. But man, I loved going on an Amuto rant again! x3
Oh, and no belittling Tadamu either, ok? I didn’t do it, so you shouldn’t. If it’s comparing them while acknowledging that Tadamu is a meaningful relationship (it is!), that’s the right way to go, but please, don’t belittle Tadamu like a bad fan. :(
The chapter was satisfying. Yay for plot and backstory! Gets the issue solved much faster and therefore, finish the whole thing much faster. Haha
I have no complaints but there are a few things that just didn’t really settle with me after I read it. And it’s mostly regarding Gozen, aka taiyaki kid. But let’s start from the beginning, shall we?
lawl~ I used my planner to hold the pages down but it looks more like it’s chomping on the Nakayoshi instead. |D;
Ah, nothing much to say here. I just like this page cuz it’s a classic shoujo “Ok, we’re going to face the bad guys now!” start of a chapter. Hehe ^^
Ok, so a small complaint.
What the hell? That elevator can so fit more than three people, darnit! *is just fussing over nothing* At least take one more person with you! And it should be Utau since she is still one of the top four important plot characters and Easter is still her problem anyway! xP
Ah, it probably just looks that way since Amu and Tadase are so small (elementary kids~). Really, though, I think they should have taken Utau along but then the elevator will get cramped and…fwah, nevermind. We don’t want a cramped elevator with those four now that I think about it. ^^;
Anyways…haha, here I was thinking what the hell were they going to discuss on the way down especially since these three dummies didn’t really apologize to each other yet (are they ever going to, I wonder?) so it would’ve been very awkward but yes, talk about Gozen! Save the awkwardness for after the mission and be awkward out in open air…or whatever. xD;
…I hope this elevator ride is short in the anime. *slight claustrophobia speaking* -.-;
All I have to say here is…WAAHH! There they are! I was wondering where all the Charas went cuz they seemed to more or less disappear temporarily at the end of the last chapter. ^^;
But yay~ Glad to see Dia is up and about out of her egg! Ugh, if Satelight wasn’t such an idiot and kept her in there until they get to this part. Now part of my excitement has deflated. -_-
Oh, here it comes…Gozen is…
a fancy chair :P
no wait, a fancy chair with a tape recorder sitting on it! not here.
But oh wow, is it so surprising that it’s a voice-distorter? To be honest, I thought it was kind of strange that his voice was like that in the anime. It sounded too…unhuman that I figured it probably wasn’t his true voice. I mean, only monsters in mahou shoujo would get hideous voices like that. Even old, evil men don’t sound that creepy. Or maybe that’s just me? Hmm, dunno.
But hey~, like what I mentioned in my PreSpoiler post, we still got a lil’ bit of Amuto alright. *giggles*
I really love it how they both don’t notice how close they’re standing next to each other. Especially Amu. Especially her! XD
It’s rather subtle but this still speaks volumes to me because even when he saved her from that giant X-egg Chara, she’s all flustered, embarrassed and probably would’ve screamed for him to put her down if he didn’t follow up with that awesome line of his (kaah, I’m still so giddy over that, lol).
But here, it’s Amu who’s standing close to him, not that other way around like how it usually is. I know this probably isn’t the proper mood to address something like that but it just reinforces my belief that if you’re that close to someone and are calm or comfortable with that proximity while not really realizing it at first, it really moves you ahead in couple status because you’re content in each other’s space…yea, something like that, you get what I mean? This happens quite often, too, so you should get what I mean. (Really, if you don’t, GET WHAT I MEAN!) xD;
Aha, and I love Amu’s line (?): “There are more and more mysterious unfolding” with her hand under her chin like that…reminds me of Sherlock Holmes. lol
So they arrive in the room with rocks via secret passageway but that’s not really what I’m concerned about.
Peach-Pit, answer me honestly. I’m happy you give us two short Amuto panels and I am not complaining at all but are you really dropping hints or giving false hope?
If you’re not aware, I am very, very attentive to details to the point of obsession. I’m also very cautious about shipping when we’re already this far into the story and I don’t want all the big and small Amuto-related things I appreciate to really flop in the end. Granted, this part isn’t exactly a romantic moment but I still count it as something to my Amuto list because the fangirl within me tells me to. I’m not overreacting. I just like all the things that contribute to my shipping, no matter what they are. That’s all.
& hey, if Tadamu fans could scream and squeal over Platina Heart, why can’t I smile at an Amuto panel? And let me just make it clear that I don’t really see a joint-attack or even a joint-transformation as anything romantic unless the author purposely added such overtones to the moment. So yea, Platina Heart was nice and made the Tadamu fans happy but it wasn’t romantic. Amu and Ikuto’s joint-transformation is the same…they just transformed because it was battle-necessary. It was special for Amuto fans but it’s not anything seriously related to romance. :/
Oh whatever. Don’t mind me. I’m just paranoid and like looking into things too much. But I really hope they don’t drop an anti-bomb for a climax, that’s all. *worried*
Back to the chapter, Gozen is the taiyaki kid who’s name is Hikaru. Woohoo, another corporation ruled by the hands of a midget. What else is new in the world? :P
Really, I’m not surprised he’s Gozen and I’m fine with it but I seem to like him…less now because of that? I don’t really see him as cute anymore (I’m probably one of the only few who thinks this, too). To be blunt, he’s a spoiled brat with too much power. And stuff like that just really turns me off. But before we get into that…
I want to make a shout-out to one of my wonderful commenters, Chibi-san, cuz she gives me such…awesome comments (waah! I’m so grateful! Thank you! XDD) andand I feel very bad for not responding to them lately due to being so busy so I felt this would be a good time to say it.
Noo! It isn’t! *shakes head* It’s just that we share the same sentiments on whether taiyaki kid was ever going to show up in the anime or not and when ep 80
eww came out, we figured he was pretty much going to be a no-show. Then this chapter came out and oh, everything changed again. @.@;
So I guess the chances of him appearing in the anime later on have risen quite a lot. There’s still a small chance Satelight might take a different route but highly doubt it. I may not like Hikaru all that much but I certainly don’t want him out because not only does he play a major role as Gozen, he plays a very important part in the moral as well (which I will get into later). You don’t screw with the moral like how Satelight screwed up ep 80 so he’d better show up unless they want to face my wrath! *glares* D8<
…erhem, but yes, that’s all I wanted to say regarding the anime. And thank you again, Chibi-san! I really appreciate your comments and I hoped you enjoyed the first honorary random guest spot of an ěk-sěn’trĭk post
so it was random *shot* |D;! XD
Alrighty, back on topic…Hikaru is a spoiled gaki.
And this supports it. “Oh, it’s not shining anymore. Don’t like. Do not want.” *toss*
I guess I was just really expecting him to be some kind of wise
Gandalf child who would show up at the right moment and PWN! everyone with some powerful but utterly “HUH?!”-inducing speech (dramatic spotlights in the background and everything) but turns out not. *sigh* Oh well. There have been worst.
(Btw, the cages are…yea, but I always get freaked out when they just drop out of nowhere. What if it crashed into your head first?! *thinking too much* o.O; )
Hikaru still gets me angry, though. Even if he is just a selfish little kid whom you may think does not know any better, that does not excuse him for sending an entire company on a wild goose chase for the Embryo, and thus abusing and using the Tsukiyomi siblings as tools as well as harming so many innocents and endangering their dreams all because he wanted to have something extra shinier to put on his collection shelf. No, his sob story, his age or the people that could have possibly influenced him does not cancel out his wrongs. He has done this all on a selfish whim and damn it, the brat needs to be spanked with a hard, long piece of wood! D<
*calms down for a moment*
In relation to this page, however, it seems that Hikaru values his stones more than he does people and that his subordinates are only worth something if they can get him something. Ok, now I really can’t wait to see his backstory cuz I would like to know how the f***in’ hell do grown up adults bow down to a kid like this and not mind that their dignity is being trampled on?
…Then again, all adults in Easter are retards and that has been proven correct. *nodnod* And ah yes, of course, that voice distorter and curtain along with the fact that no one but the asshole director gets to actually see the true face of Gozen so it all makes sense~…
Which makes the director an even more of a faggot. He treats everyone like trash but would serve as a human rug for a boy five times less his size.
Can I kill him now? We shouldn’t let such a failure of a man live and ruin the image of humanity more than it already is ruined. *crazy look*
Anyways…I’m so confused. @.@; Where the hell did the black egg come from? Is it the same one that was inside Ikuto and enabled him to Chara-nari into Death Rebel? If so, when the heck did it come out?! And if not, is this another black egg that just formed when all the X-energy sucked itself out of the violin?
(Btw, yay! The violin is no longer corrupted!)
Oiyoiyoi…I hope this will be explained better when it’s animated cuz the manga seems to be just rushing through to get to the climax. No problem with that. I would just like some clarification on this egg! *still sooo confused and lost* @.@;;;
Pfft. Well, I give credit for still keeping the humor alive. One of the smaller things I really love about SC! Spontaneous WTF comedic moments.
Oiya, the glass displays have axploded and Hikaru is “NOOO!! My precious stones!” while bastard director tries to
molest protect him from the blast.
Ooo, rejection sucks, doesn’t it, ugly?
I kind of want to laugh at how Hikaru’s so desperately trying to gather up all his rocks. I’m not being mean or spiteful either. It’s just funny to see him all crouched over the ground…over rocks. Pretty rocks, yes, but still…rocks? |D;
However, there really is a good theory to why he’s freaking out over them. Quote MVP’s post:
I think Hikaru really needed someone after his parent’s death and didn’t have it, or something happened to make him feel worthless and say something like, “My parents left me.” Because, well, though they did, they died. While it isn’t abandonment, Hikaru might see it as such and was never able to cope with it, thus carrying baggages of anger and sadness inside him until his Heart’s Egg broke and vanished. He’s basically an empty soul. But it seems his fetish for rocks speaks a great deal about his character; he wants to hold onto something, something that won’t break easily. Rocks are stone and hard, and are nearly impossible to break by the human hand. I think he admires rocks, how strong they are, and wishes he himself could be like that. So he keeps everyone at a distance, and throws them away so he can keep himself from breaking should he get too attached, and that makes sense; no attachment, no time for him to feel sadness at losing them. So when they’re destroyed, the look of panic and horror on his face shows that not even rocks are unbreakable and he’s lost yet another thing along with his sense of security.
I pretty much have the same opinion in mind.
Hikaru said he had no time to mourn for his parents because he needed to study hard to become a good leader. Like how Ikuto and Utau were when they lost their father and their mother fell ill, he thought that expressions of sadness will get him nothing and worse, cause others to look down on him with pity that he doesn’t need. It’s the pride that’s speaking through. Which is the main reason why they all wanted to become stronger. Ikuto and Utau placed a lot of faith in swallowing up their sorrow, steeling up against the people who oppressed them, and trying to rebel against their “fate” of serving Easter. They did not put their trust in anyone, believing that others could not possibly understand and that they would only get empty words of comfort that they don’t need. The thought that because they were able to fight for so long up till now without anyone else’s help, that they were “strong”.
While Hikaru developed an obsession over stones, which are supposedly unbreakable. Moreover, to him, people are not like stones. People’s emotions and feelings are extremely unreliable while stones have no feelings at all. If he could become a rock, polished and cut to perfection, then that is good enough. He doesn’t need feelings because he thinks feelings are weak and dreams are fragile. So he threw them away and focused on objects that defined the image of “strength” in his mind, just like how Utau tried to throw away the kind and gentle side of her because she thought she didn’t need it to “win”. And in a similar yet altered-around way, just like how Ikuto pushes happiness away to prevent himself from losing what little of it he has. Better to not have it at all than to lose it.
But in reality, it’s just to hide their weaknesses from the rest of the world. They don’t want to look at their shortcomings bravely in the face and chose to run from them instead, which doesn’t solve the problem at all.
Utau wanted to “win” but what would she have won? Nothing. She wanted that satisfaction of beating Amu to prove she was right but like that is going to make her feel any better even if she did “win” a shallow victory. She’d still be slaving under Easter, doing crap she doesn’t want to do, and Amu would continue to interrupt the bad guys like the good heroine she is.
And Utau did all the bad stuff at the price of almost losing her dream to sing…along with the person whom she really was, which caused Iru and Eru to leave her. Utau’s problem was that she kept denying her true self and started chasing a deceiving image of “winner”. Hence, she was just making up excuses to hide her weaknesses when it did the exact opposite. It just showed how insecure she was about herself and just how badly she tripped off the right path.
Now with Ikuto, if Amu didn’t save him, he’d just keep spiraling downwards. Ever since he was a kid, he’s been denied happiness and continually forced to do Easter’s dirty work in order to protect his mother and Utau. If that wasn’t enough, people starting placing the “unlucky black cat” mark on him and accusing him to the point where he seemed to almost agree with them.
But Ikuto, nonetheless, still cared about those close to him and was willing to take the bitter end in order to protect him, even if it meant that he had to make his loved ones hate him to do so. And though he has that all in very, very, very noble intentions…he’s such a dummy. Selling himself to Easter never really did make things any better, did it? He’s brainwashed and forced to take more X-eggs, he can’t protect Amu or Tadase while he’s under Easter’s control and whether he wanted to keep them out of it or not, the Guardians were still going to face Easter in the end anyway.
But he still could’ve reached out to someone (Amu) and taken off his mask of indifference to show just how much he’s been bottling up inside. He didn’t but he should have. He didn’t explain all those misunderstandings to Tadase when he should have but if he did, it wouldn’t have come out to such a predicament where Tadase absolutely hated him.
However, it just goes to show that Ikuto is as scared as much as he is proud. He has lost so much already that if he were to show his true self to others, they would either accept him or still reject him. If they accepted him, he’d be happy for only short while until Easter comes in and threatens to do harm to that happiness. He doesn’t want the same to happen over again like how it did with his family so it would be better if he was never happy at all so that Easter doesn’t know. He knows it doesn’t solve the problem but given the type of guy he is, what other choices does he really have?
Despite that, both Ikuto and Utau realized that they were wrong and got back on the right track while Hikaru…
…is still being stubborn. But not anywhere smartly stubborn. Just plain old dumb stubborn! >:(
Honestly, Hikaru, rocks are rocks. In symbolism, they might have the “ooo, awesome, rocks never break so they are strong!” logic but wake up and smell the eggs, stupid. You can collect as many shiny stones as you want and you’ll still feel empty and want something more to fill that void. Rocks do nothing. They just take up space. They won’t respond to your feelings nor will they give you the sense of fulfillment that only interactions with people can give.
*being angry because I can*
Yes, I know that since Hikaru is still just a kid, he probably doesn’t understand the meaning of all this but like hell I care about his age or how much he’s been spoiled. If he’s competent enough to lead a company then he should goddamn learn how to get his little arse out of his fetish office and be in the real world for once. xP
(And gawd, Amu, why must you be such a good heroine and stick up for even to the most loathsome of bad guys? *huggles her~* x333)
Xiao is happy.
Now release them from those cages! D<
Holy mother of macaroni, where the hell did you get the spare keys? -.-;
So…here’s the part where I go into the Embryo rant.
Y’know all this talk about “The search for the Embryo was completely pointless!” is really getting on my nerves. Yes, I do understand (MORE THAN A GREAT HANDFUL OF YOU!) that none of the characters really needed the Embryo at all. They really only needed each other to see the potential within themselves and use each other’s support to get closer to their wishes. Example: Tadase’s wish is to become stronger and a good leader, and therefore, Kiseki was born. Tadase was discouraged once and felt lost and betrayed a couple other times but he has managed to overcome those problems with the help of his friends and realize for himself (by himself) what he needed to do to become stronger. In short, Tadase never needed the Embryo, as much as he wished for it.
We got that part down? Good.
Now, the Embryo has just turned into a rock. WOOT! That’s the way I like it! xP
But to call the whole search for the Embryo useless…you guys are missing a very vital point
or you’re just not thinking enough like usual. First of all, just like Tsukasa explained, the Embryo is not a jewel or a precious stone but “the egg of people’s dreams.”
What are dreams, people? Wishes. Goals. Something we want to accomplish. Thing is…dreams are not tangible. You can’t see them anywhere except inside your head. You can’t touch them, you can’t feel them. It is something that was created inside your own mind and will only take form within your own mind.
But knowing people, they’re impatient. They don’t like waiting for the results and constantly demand that they get something relevant AND physical of their wishes fulfilled. They don’t want to just think and work for it, they want to actually see something. And this is where the Embryo comes in. The Embryo is a physical representation of those dreams. Not only dreams. Dreams and wishes that are granted. No wonder why so many people chase after it. Isn’t it easier to just grab a shining egg floating in the sky then go through school just to get a diploma? Of course it is! Now get back down to reality and focus.
The Embryo quest was not for nothing. At the very least, people should be aware that if there was no search for the Embryo, there would be no Shugo Chara! and therefore, no interactions between the characters who make the plot move along.
Secondly, if there was no Embryo to chase after, none of them would realize that they don’t really need the Embryo in the first place when they can just do their best on their own
actually, they really haven’t realized this yet either but that’s beside the point.
Thirdly…Shugo Chara! not only deals with the theme of growing up and learning to accept yourself for who you are but it also deals greatly with the matter of the human psyche.
People respond to incentives and rewards. And that is what the Embryo is. So that’s why they search for it. To say it was pointless is just like saying that chasing after their dreams are pointless. So what if the Embryo turned into a rock? Then it’s just not the Embryo anymore. That doesn’t mean its power no longer exists or that there isn’t another Embryo out there, waiting to be caught. It just means that dreams are once again intangible and you’ll have to try harder this time to find it again.
Note how I did not say that this new Embryo is a flying egg that you have to grab hold of. Did I say it was anything like that? Did I imply the Embryo is even an egg at all? No.
But as previously stated, people are lazy, selfish and very often chose not to think. They see something of promise, they grab. They don’t get what the want, they chuck it into trash bin and whine like a bitch instead of moving onto the next step. Hikaru is a great example of people and their greed in general just like how the Embryo represents people’s desires.
See the representation now? *sigh* So many fans are so shallow. They only see what’s on printed paper.
And moral of the story? Settle for collecting Snapple caps instead. It saves up more space and you can actually play with them. *SHOT*
Kidding. But just to say that things like wanting to be strong, making a wish come true, etc…it’s not something that’s material. Simple as that. *shrug*
Current final concluding thoughts about Hikaru:
I still don’t like him. >:(
I admit that since he is still only just a kid who’s gone through some troubling times while growing up, it gives him a little more leisure space to be forgiven but not enough to redeem himself! He’s still a dictatorial brat who’s done too much wrong to completely make up for. And while Ikuto and Utau had little to no power to resist Easter’s orders to hurt people, Hikaru had the whole corporation kissing his feet with a silver spoon sticking out of his mouth.
Of course, we all know that Amu will eventually talk some sense into Hikaru (or will it be Tsukasa? Meh, who cares…) so when she does, something big might happen for a moment and yay, maybe then we’ll get some sort of definite signs of ending. I’m actually hoping it isn’t just Amu to play the peptalk role this time, though (lol, Ikuto scolding a little kid should be funny to see xD; ) but if that’s how it is, then so be it. She knows how to handle little kids best and since Hikaru never really had an older, reliable figure to pat him on the head and sympathize with him, it would seem as if he’d get attached to her really quickly. Oi. :P
My only peeve is that since Gozen is just a kid, we’ll probably never get to see Easter collapse to the ground. I’m rather disappointed cuz I was really looking forward to something like that. Easter has left too many bad memories for me to just accept that it will continue working like it always has. But who knows, maybe it will get some sort of reform
doesn’t change a thing or whatever. I dunno. In order to un-annoy me, they’ll have to do something wackily sensible like putting Hikaru and Ami together and therefore, making Ami the future wife of the CEO of Easter. 8D;
On the brighter side, HOORAY! I think it’s safe to say that Ikuto and Utau will not be inheriting the company after all now that Hikaru took that spot. And who wants to be in charge of a company that used you as slaves anyway? xP
So ends my review. Damn, that was long. Next time: Hikaru’s past. Looking forward to it, despite my small grudge.
Mmkay, going to take a short nap now. But not before I read LGB’s latest one-shots. OMFG, she wrote me a Suukaidou! I ♥ you, hun~! <333 *dashes off to go read it again* LOL xDDD;;;
