Boring filler. Nothing much to say. I’m kind of a little worn out over the last post as well (but writing that felt great!) and some personal issues are making my day worse so this will be a short post.
I will reply to comments for the manga chapter post (and maybe some others) as soon as I can. Right now, my stuffy nose is driving me crazy and I’m so tired because of it. Urgh… =w=
Everyone and their monkeys swore she was a boy. o.O;
…I would’ve liked her better if she was a boy. -.-;
Where’s my Amu?
There you are, AMU-CHAN~! *HUGGLES* x333 My lovely daughty (yesh, she’s my cute little daughty). <3
Ehh, but now that I look through this a second time…actually, no, when I watched it the first time on crappy resolution KeyHole TV streaming, it’s that art again. Y’know, you can tell when they change art directors for every (or every other) episode. I don’t have the names of the directors (couldn’t find them) but I’m pretty sure the one who’s in charge for this eppy was also in charge for the Utau-ramen one back in ep 75. And I can tell just by looking at how the eyes are drawn. Or somebody’s who’s more familiar with this matter prove me wrong but I’m dead sure it’s the same as ep 75.
Still…it wasn’t on par like 75, even with the same director. The designs got extremely lazy especially for all the filler people. Only the main cast seemed to look decent but they had a few short “ick” moments as well. Though I overlooked those since for the most part, they were all okay.
God, I miss the first season’s art so badly. Is anyone feeling the same?
Or do you think that because Peach-Pit’s manga art changed to show Amu maturing from a young girl into a young lady that Satelight is trying to do the same thing?
…hmm, well, I wouldn’t say they failed (definitely not) because Amu really does look a little older as the anime continues to progress but sometimes…Doki just makes a wrong turn and it’s back to kiddy art again. *sigh* …I miss season one’s art. T_T
AWWW!! Even crouching like that in fetal position (kinda), she’s so cute!
lol, she has such a constipated look on her face! xDD;;
KYAAAA!!! RIMAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!! *GLOMPSNUGGLE~* x3333
lol I love looking at this scenario from all sides. Amu is currently the silly but oh-so-cute girl of the trio, Yaya is the actual contemplater for once (WAAH! YAYA~! <333), and Rima is as always the rational one with the slightly exasperated look on her face.
“Oh, Amu, get up and sit on the bench already, jeez!”
I would love to see something like this again when they’re teenagers. I know I won’t get it but I can picture it alright. It’s nice to know that some things will never change even when they’re older. Ahhh…now I really want to see it. xD;
Lawl~ Why is it when Kuukai comes back, I never call him by his name but always address him as “YOOOOUUUU!!!!” ? |D;
I think it has something to do with ep 75. Amu did the same “…oh, and you, too.” Haha
But I’m so happy to seem him again, even if it was only an episode or two ago. Kuukai~, come to the tower battle with the whole group later on, plz. TwT And drag Kairi along with you, too. The Iinchou must be present (for a tri-Jack attack!)! *so greedy* xD;
*hyperventilates from all the cuteness* So…CUTE! The both of them! AAAHHH!! xDDDDD
And Rima is so petite…which just makes me want to hug her more! *HUGGLE* Aww, she reminds me of a teddy bear! Just like what Amu said when she first transferred in (lol, why am I referencing everything to what Amu said?).
Poor Amu-chan. Don’t worry, I can understand completely how you feel (though in my case, I’m probably the unluckier one to get hit by the ball).
Yaya: “OMG, baseball looks dangerous.”
Rima: “Hmm…I’m bored but I’ll stay just to make sure Amu doesn’t hurt herself.”
Now I want plushies. Someone make me plushies of all the girls…and then all the boys. But the Charas first! Yesh, I want plushies. NAO! RAWR! D<
Poor Amu again. She’s always being dragged along by someone. Come to think of it, I don’t think there’s anyone who didn’t drag her by the hand off to…wherever. Let’s see, Ikuto, Kuukai, Yaya, Rima, Utau (not necessarily by the hand but she did drag her off to lunch so it counts!), Tadase, Nagi, Ami…did Kairi drag her anywhere yet? o.O I don’t recall nor do I think so. Hmm…yea, Kairi is probably the only one but it doesn’t look like he’ll ever get that chance. ^^;
Or does being dragged the other way around counts? haha xD;
Rima: “What exactly did we come here for?”
So I can spam my post with lovely pictures of you, RIMA~! <333
Dude, I would not mind a single fly in my soup if I could have one whole episode dedicated to Rima doing…nothing but just ordinary stuff. Like sitting down here with Yaya or in class studying cuz KAAAH! That would be so cute! RIMAAA~!!! *fangirl overdrive*
What is it that they’re standing on? Balloons of some sort? o.O;
Leave it to Kuukai for his contemporary training. ^^;
It reminds me of Shion…and how she’s not there. Boohoo, I really, really liked Shion and wish she would come back
cause some sparks to fly for Kutau but that won’t happen. *sigh* Shion~! I miss you! One of the few fillers I bother to care for. T_T
This reminded me of kung fu. I kinda miss it (why am I remembering and missing so many things on this episode?!) and want to go back someday. Can’t now, though. Too much work. Agh, kung fu was so much fun, too. *sighsigh*
Aww, Amu is so cute. She gets so happy when she earns a new friend and they call her “Amu-chan”. Amu-chan~! <333
She’s come a long way, hasn’t she? At the beginning, she was always lonely and wanted friends but couldn’t really bring up the courage to approach others but look at her now! It’s Amu the one who’s taking the first step! *feels so proud of Amu and huggles her again* x333
Lawl~ Amu’s second best guy friend really fits his role. I really love Amu’s interactions with Nagi but there are certain times where it just has to be a sibling type of friend instead of a best friend type. For me, Kuukai is the Onii-chan that Amu will never have and I think Amu really needs an older brother figure to guide her because…well, older brothers are reliable (at least they should be especially towards girls younger than them). Yaya probably rivals her for that spot for being the imouto (lol and both Yaya and Amu are technically big sisters speaking in real terms xD; ) but even that doesn’t really strike me as much as Amu does. If anything, if these three were related, Amu would be the middle child, Yaya still the baby and Kuukai the spoiler. Aww, that’s cute. That’s cute! XD
Aha~ Amu’s fiery doom aura extends to her Charas as well. Wonderful~ x3
I think she should have winked her signature wink here. It would make this look tons cuter.
& I swear, nobody, and I mean NOBODY, can top Amu for the cutest shoujo wink EVAR~ :DDD
This reminded me so much of S.A. (oh, I’m sorry, now you probably remember it, too *dodges tomatoes*) but only done better. -.-;
So like Kuukai to say something like “You gotta pick yourself up after you fall” and so like Amu to still run after them because she can’t leave people in trouble alone. Oh, Amu, why are you such a good mahou shoujo heroine? *loves her more* <3
SKY JACK! YAY! XDD
Been a while. And he looks even cooler now that Kuukai has grown up a bit (did you see those biceps?! LOLOL xDDD).
Plus he and Amulet Heart always made a great tag-team in sports-related things. Ah, tag teams are nice. I always thought so…or at least, I never thought against any that I know of.
But anyways, now I want to see Amu tag-team with someone else she hasn’t tag-teamed with for a while. Rima comes to mind…Yaya’s never even tag-teamed with Amu (more like there’s no oppurtunity for it which is kinda sad :( )…Kairi’s not here (get back here already!)…and Utau is filming a MV. Oh noes, thinking more about tag-teams make me think of the tower. Why am I torturing myself? TT_____TT
Nice hit, Amu! ^^ (haha, there seems to be some sort of pattern going on here…who or what’s going to be hit next episode, I wonder?)
And one more final shot for this awesome pair of friends. End it off on a good note. Heh. ^^
…I’m not going to lie. What point is there in doing so? This worries the hell out of me. SOMEONE! Chibidoucet! LGB! warrior! Anyone! Comfort me and say I have nothing to worry about (will worry anyway cuz that’s how I am)! TT______TT
Ah, but I’m not really freaking out…no wait, that’s a lie, too. Just a little. But I understand that the Tadamu is still there for good reason. They confessed to each other and they still like each other. The crushes are still intact so…yea.
I guess what bothers me the most are the casual atmosphere and the lack of…urgency even with Nikaidou’s reassurance that Easter won’t do anything that will kill Ikuto just yet (it doesn’t matter, he’s still suffering so go and save him already). *sigh* But this is what we get when you’re following both the (BETTER) manga and the (not so great) anime at the same time. Filler-stretches and extreme plot whoop-bags. Ugh.
It kind of pisses me more off, too, cuz Satelight’s not only making Amu seem like she forgot about Ikuto’s confession completely (oh wait, maybe she’ll remember it next episode if we’re lucky *shifty eyes*), they’re making it seem as if she’s really just going to sit back for a while until something happens. Which is not her fault because she can’t even get into Easter at the moment
hell, hijack a truck and drive through the front door but…still…Amu has a responsibility not only as the heroine but also as a friend to both Ikuto and Utau, who specifically “gave her the right to protect Ikuto” and look after him while she was away. I know I’m freaking out a little too much but c’mon. This kind of thing didn’t happen in the Utau arc even with the fillers, which actually fit very nicely before the actual start of BLACK DIAMONDS. I don’t see why they couldn’t do it just as good as Utau’s arc. And I know they can…they’re just lazy. *sigh*
Ah, but as if always on cue, Ikuto always seems to be there at the right time to interrupt any possible romantic furtherances (I know that’s not a word but let me use it anyway xP) because it’s like…their intertwined destinies or something. ^^;
Even when he’s brainwashed and sick and…NGH! IKUTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! *BAWLS* TT______________________TT
Well, at least we get to see him again next week. I’m seriously wondering how Satelight’s going to pull of Death Rebel appearing before ALL the Guardians cuz that seems like the case here. It’s a music festival where tons of people are going to attend. Perfect chance for Easter to get X-eggs and the whole group is there…so yea.
Did I mention I love music more than I like sports? 8D When I heard “ongaku”, I was like “MUUUUSSSSSSICCCCC!!!!”
And then I heard Yoru’s voice screaming for Ikuto and went “YORUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!”
But either way, I get something good. Nagi gets some screentime (dancing~), Ikuto gets some screentime (though still sick, NOOOO!!! Dx), Yoru is back and hanging with the rest of the Chara gang (yay~! ^^), and…music! hehe
I’m going to avoid the massive rabid Rimahiko fans and likely bashing of the filler girl here (who looks kinda cute) cuz honestly, people. It’s just a filler. They’re not going to affect the main plot whatsoever. If a utterly plain girl like Kotone didn’t (though I liked it when she sparked a reaction from Amu), then let’s not prematurely bash a filler, whose purpose it to make a main cast member look good. I tend to like those fillers better instead of random ones that just focus on themselves. Filler working for an awesome cast. Yesh. Filler by itself. You’re forgettable.
Ah, ok. That’s all. Will try to reply back to comments soon. ^^
