(Sorry for the lateness. Apparently, WP had an issue with the content of my blog so I couldn’t post until it was resolved.)
*composes self* …Mmkay, things on twitter were so full of uber crack! spam that 7-san had to message me if he needed to
lock all our crazy fangirling in a cage box redirect everyone to iRC before twitter experienced a site meltdown…
Anyways, oho~…MVE is going to have a field day with this, alright (I swear, crack! is her caffeine and she’s awesome that way, lol). As for me?
Let’s just say I’ll be talking directly to a few of regular commenters in my post so if you feel left out, gomen, but I have to reference them cuz…
Oh wow…they actually have these kind of shows? D8
No wonder why American celebs aren’t that great. They don’t have comedy awards that look like emoticons. :P
I really don’t get it. Why can’t you just go up to your mom and say “Maman, I have a problem with you flitting around variety shows instead of doing some hard-on dead sexy professional acting! It’s time we went back to France cuz I’m sick of being skanked around by Satelight when they can’t do plot and just use me to kill time!” and so on and so on.
Besides, hearing the same “I won’t let Easter or Tsukiyomi Ikuto get the Embryo!” thing sounds so boring~
How many times have I heard that from Tadase and Utau (though in her case, it was regarding Amu)? Argh, stupid script-writers.
lol, Yaya is like a real-life event RSS feed. Universities would absolutely love her but hell no! Yaya’s ours! *steals Yaya away* xP
Screw the fact that it’s a festival. Rima and Nagi…TALKING! <– going crazy over them because I can.
Well, we didn’t get any suspicious Rima…but hmm, is that so? See, looking at how casual and almost easy-going they are with each other right now (if Amu is not in between ^^; ), it would just make what happens later on all the more…BIG and dramatic! Cuz right now, Rima is on the same boat with Amu and Yaya. They all think Nagi is Nadeshiko’s twin brother. When Rima finds out otherwise and the fact that Nagi has deceived them for…well, hmm, since ep 56 (and that is a pretty long period to be fooled, y’know), it’s just going to add to her anger and distrust at him. Yea, that might have toned down in ep 62 but she still suspects him. If anything, she suspects him for Amu’s sake more than her own, I think.
Because Nadeshiko is Amu’s first best friend and that really got Rima all riled up because Amu is Rima’ first best friend. And Rima treasures Amu more than any other Guardian does. So to find out that Amu has been lied to by Nadeshiko, it’s like stepping into a lion’s territory. Rima, who has never had a true friend before she came to Seiyo Academy, learned and received friendship from Amu. Heck, she was able to smile again because of Amu. Therefore, she would place Amu in very high regard and find it very unforgiving if anyone, even the Guardians, betrayed Amu’s trust. So see, it’s not always so much about Rima’s jealousy but also because of how much Amu means to her. Yes, Rima is mad for everyone else who doesn’t know of Nagi’s secret but not as much as for Amu, who seemed to confide mostly in Nadeshiko, and when Nagi came, him because he and Nadeshiko were alike.
Ah, I love going into depth about BFF friendships. Especially Amu and Rima’s cuz they have the best friendship in the whole entire series. I know Amu isn’t really touched upon in the Rimahiko manga chapter but still think she has a large part on why Rima would act so hostile towards Nagi after eavesdropping on him talking to Nobuko. In the anime, it seems to be partially resolved but expect Rima to be even nastier when we get to the tower part. All this time and development the anime built up between ep 56 and then…oh yea, Rima ain’t going to be happy.
And that episode will be guuuud. I can’t wait! xD
*GASP!* YES~! 8DDDD
THIS was what I was waiting for and it came~ <3
Now I’m going to post pictures of violins all over the place where Amu can see them so she can constantly remember that Ikuto is still locked up somewhere by those horrible bastards.
*draws up some poster*…*copy machine is dead*…
Ok, you can’t see Rima’s face but you see her Loreal-shampooed model hair and that’s good enough for a Rimahiko shot, dammit! XD;
Other than that, hoho~ What smart Guardians they are. They practically voiced out what I was thinking last week. If Easter was going to interfere with the music festival. Of course, when I say something, the opposite tends to happen a lot…or rather, not happen but…either way, it doesn’t make the situation any better!
Anyways…waaahahaha! Rima and Nagi discussing Easter all “This is srs bznz!” like. x333 I can go on but…I need more Rimahiko shots and I don’t have any at this point. TAT
Whoa, Yaya. Easy on Amu’s do.
Oh look, it’s so spikey like a porcupine! Ouch! >.O
You look so…booooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeddddddddddddd. D/
lol And he asks for manga. Indication that he misses Amu’s room because not only did she have manga to read…she had shoujo manga to read! …And it was Nakayoroshi! …And her room had windows and actual lighting! \P
Of course, Easter being utterly boring as it is evil, like hell they would have manga. You suck, Easter. I hope your stock plummets into a hell hole just because your whole building is full of fail.
Ok, first of all, I refuse to put a screencap of Ms. In-need-of-a-lip-surgery but honestly, who really wants to see her when smirky Ikuto is enough?
Anyways…EL EM EY OH. We have hit the crack (no, don’t you start writing fics about this cuz I will puke on you if you do!)
WTF, IKUTO?! I was laughing my ass of so hard and feeling so revolted at the same time! xDDDD
Oh god…ok, the rough translation would not be “sweetheart” cuz Ikuto said “Onee-san” which I think everyone knows means “big sister” and it can be addressed to any older female figure out of just…addressing someone as such if you don’t know or want to use their name. I dunno why I’m so paranoid cuz CR’s (rather crappy) translation is can fit but…”sweetheart” coming from him to some older woman sounds gross. Eck. lol
Moving on, aha~ …we hardly get see Ikuto actually acting like a playboy because like Utau said way back in ep 29…Ikuto was never interested in any girls until Amu came along. Then he started messing with her and only her a lot and doing that kinda just drew out the playboy nature in him. But oh god, you rabid fangirls, don’t think of the light flirting in this scene as anything serious cuz Ikuto loves to mess with just about everyone (Amu the most). xD
Plus, I think the directors’ suddenly became aware that Ikuto’s playboy reputation seemed to precede Ikuto himself (he’s only a playboy around Amu, hehehe~) so they just threw this in for fun. Very cracky, ewwy, yucky fun but it’s still humor.
That aside…I was pretty much a mix of and because I can’t really express the look on my face in words.
And it might just be because I’m older than Ikuto and that I’m pretty familiar with his character that I can only roll my eyes when he did this. Kind of like how an older sister would towards her younger brother…yea, kinda like “Ikuto, you naughty boy! Hitting on older women just because you know you can!” xD;
I mean, even though I’m pretty much over my giggly fangirling over Ikuto himself (I act more like a obsessive parent in everyone’s case nowadays), I, and any other sensible girl, know that it’s hard to resist exploding into hearts and melting into a puddle of fangirl ecstasy when he uses that tone of voice. Cuz Ikuto’s an attractive guy and he knows it.
Haha, I hope I’m not the only one who was thought up of what would have happened if Amu and/or Utau happened to witness this. Utau would act as usual. Turn into the demon queen of hell, terrorize all of Easter’s female employees, squeal her twin tails off and run around like crazy till the whole building collapsed or…all the above. :D
For Amu, I think if he really acted like this towards any other girl (this was just under desperate boredom circumstances, otherwise he’d never really do it, pfft), she’d get jealous. Oh yes, I think she would. And then she’d be all stubborn and deny it and…KYAA! I want to see Amu jealous over Ikuto! *stomps feet all around* xDDD
Other than that, I wonder if they’d be a little grossed out like I was. I mean, yea, this was purely for lulz but still…he’d probably make Utau cry and Amu even more wary of him. Of course this will never happen but it’s fun to picture. *silently cackles to self in a corner*
Something doesn’t seem right. Doesn’t Ikuto in the manga address the bastard director as “Mr. Director” instead of “old man”? What’s going on?
Hmm…well, this part isn’t serious but we haven’t really heard Ikuto call him as anything other than “old man” up till now in the anime…and I’m not happy with it. Cuz I don’t acknowledge that bastard as anyone’s parent at all so he should not be called as such and just be reserved as “Mr.
Aha, you guys suck.
Glad to see Ikkun’s hasn’t lost his real, trickster self to those idiots yet. Yea, Ikuto! You keep on messing with their stupid old heads! XD
Eww. Well, duh, Ikuto is cool but still…eww.
lol “Think of the age difference!” WTF, EWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!! As if!
No more crack! Moving on! XP
*smacks them with mai sledgehammer* Like hell you’re going to use him for another experiment! LET IKUTO GO, YOU ASSHOLES! DDDDDD8<
Aww, I really got to hand it to Nana this episode. Like any Chara, she tries very hard for her owner and…aww, Nana~ *still likes Nana more than Lulu* ^^
Yoru gets the top prize, though, cuz he’s always the best in looking out for his owner.
But who can resist sweets? ^^;
RI-MA-HI-KO ♪ SHOT~! x333
Huh? This is so kiddy-like. But what the hell? You don’t need straws to make instruments! Just get a huge empty jug and blow it at the rim. There! You have music! :P
lol Girls up front. ;D
Kyaa! Now this reminds me of DVD vol. 13 cover. UMG, that cover was gorgeous, yo!
AND WAAAAHHHHH! RIMA WITH A GUITAR
TWICE HER SIZE!!!! *fangirl AXPOLDES* XDDDDDDDDDDDD Aww man, now I really can’t wait until the second character song collection comes out!
WOOT! YEA! DDR!
Ok, it is so blatant, it isn’t even funny. If you’re caught up with the manga, you know what I mean.
All Nagi needs is his pair of GINORMOUS headphones plus his ghetto outfit and we’re good to go. ;D
Ah, nice tie back to Nagi’s mild egg dilemma. But I’m rather impatient at this point. I want to see that part happen already. RAWR RAWR RAWR!
Well, first of all, another thank you to the commenters who comforted me over this part last week. Really, I re-read them all before watching this on live-stream and when I saw this, I was like “Eh? That’s it? I felt nothing!” You guys are wonderful~ <3
Tadase doesn’t seem to have much of a blushy reaction like he usually does either…or is it just this episode? I don’t know. Even though Amu still has a crush on him, it seems that Tadase is somewhat unconsciously pulling his own feelings out (just like you said, Chibi-san :D). Not completely, of course, but…yea. I think after that apology talk they had over Ikuto and him always seeing Amu so depressed whenever something Ikuto-related comes to mind (like the violin earlier on in the episode) makes him kind of question how much Ikuto really means to Amu. That and how much Tadase doesn’t know about what Amu and Ikuto have been through together, how well they know each other (heck, Amu knows Ikuto better than he does and he was childhood friends with Ikuto). All these things are going through his head and affecting his perspective on things. Well, if that’s the case, go for it, Tadase! If anything, you’re a lot smarter than Amu in regards to your feelings! :P
Honestly, Amu is a wonderful, beautiful girl and you’d be the luckiest guy in the world to receive her affections but she’s not a person that can just fit and go with anyone, y’know. And Tadase certainly isn’t the guy for her and she certainly isn’t the girl for him for so many reasons already stated. Nuff said.
SATELIGHT, YOU BITCH! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH RIMA?! Dx<
At least Yaya had the right reaction! YEA YAYA! Be mad that you didn’t get a bento made for you by Amu!
Taken because Yoru eating okonomiyaki is cute~ |3
Nooo! It wasn’t your imagination! D/
Ok, because we all know that this episode focuses on dancing and with Lulu twirling around in an outfit like that, only one thing comes to my mind…
…*stares at LGB*
I’ll give you a cookie if you know what we’re talking about. And I don’t think a lot of people do unless you actually watched it or gone through my comments. |D;
Well, whatever. I mention it again later on anyway.
(Ignore that the screencaps are not in order. :P)
How stupid. -__-;
Though it was kinda funny.
Ha, the Lukuto fans must have erupted out of their sleep again. Crazy fangirls.
Meh, I don’t really like Lulu “helping” Ikuto this way but I can’t say what she’s doing isn’t understandable for her own purposes. At least she’s well aware that she can’t do anything against Easter by herself. Seriously, what the hell can a girl like her do against a corporation with so much power? Since she knows Ikuto is trying to escape them and that they need him to make their plan work, she helps him as way of disrupting their plans so she can get to the Embryo first. That’s pretty much the only thing she can do. Sure, Lulu, I’m down with that. Just keep your nose out of my plot and everything’s A-okay.
Keh, at this point, she’s better at interfering with Easter than she is with actually finding the Embryo. How ironic. -_-;
I…LOVE THIS. 8DDDD
*puts Rimahiko fans on mute*
This was so cute! And c’mon, it is so not yuri. Don’t you dance with your gal pals for fun, too? :P
Hehe, I love Yaya so much. She can get along with practically any girl in the series cuz she’s so…friendly and outgoing and…wow, I think my love for Yaya has increased nearly to the 3/4 of the level of my love for Rima. o.O;
WAAAHHHH! YAYA~! RIMA~! <3333
Ok, back into Rimahiko fan mode. Whut? Nagi! You should go dance with them! Especially Rima! Go go! Shoo! *pushshoves*
I kinda feel bad for the filler girl this week. Cuz it’s not like this was her dream or anything. She just wanted to dance for fun and Lulu warped it out of proportion like usual. -_-;
Uh…um…yea…ok…I don’t get it.
Stupid Satelight and their stupid plot-hole-creating pinheads! If Yoru can sense Ikuto calling him from quite a while away, why doesn’t he notice that Ikuto was right behind him? D/
Though I guess you can say due to the amount of X-energy that’s covering him, it makes it difficult to pinpoint Ikuto’s presence but that doesn’t make sense either cuz if it’s that much negative energy, a Chara would sense it almost immediately and Ikuto was RIGHT THERE! ARGH! Stupid Satelight! Dx
I told you my violin plan would be a success. ;D
(Btw, I love Amu’s outfit~ She looks so pretty~ <3)
…I think this is enough to describe all my frustration with this part…NO?
…stupid…?-egg! RAWR! We had the dramatic white background lighting, the close up of their shoes and everything! Satelight, stop making this into a drama more than it is already! *writhes on the ground*
Well, she wasn’t so annoying cuz…if it weren’t for her, Nagi wouldn’t have gotten screentime. :D
*gasp* Nuu! Rima! Yaya!
…Oh wait, they’re only doing the Russian dance. |D
Been a while, Amulet Spade.
Crazy…pointe shoes of doom. o.O;;;
Drosselmeyer would be pleased. He wants a pair. |D;
LAWL~ Someone make an animated image of this for me. XD;
And here’s some more Nagi image spamming:
Now I want to dance with Nagi! *jealous* XDDD
lololol, Nagi is such a Tutu. He’s just more *SPARKLY~!* XD Aww…now I want to watch PT again. That is such a beautiful mahou shoujo and if any of you have never seen it yet, get your arse onto Youtube and search for it now (and then buy the DVDs afterwards) cuz it’s really a great classic magical girl anime and the best part is…the anime is the original! So even if you may think some episodes are filler…they’re not. Everything is part of the main plot.
So yea…go check it out. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. ~.^
He was there! Go back and look for him! *throws a fit*
*MOAR SCREAMING AND CRYING AND RAGING AND OVERTHROWING TABLES!!!*
SATELIGHT, I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU!
I HATE YOUUUU!!!!! DDDDDX
Yea, we should all know that there wasn’t even the slightest chance their eyes would meet in the crowd or that Ikuto would somehow catch up to her but still! Don’t torture me like this (though I love anything that’s Amuto so I’m also okay with it *masochist* xD; )! Save him already! ASDJLKFSDAJFLSAKJDF Mahou shoujo dorama and all this stuff is not suppose to be this heart-wrenching! *cries*
Well, it’s official now. Lulu’s going to get her ass whooped by Easter and ousted out of the game. But who cares about that now?
F*CK YOU, YOU BASTARD! ASSHOLE! SCUM! DIRTBAG! YOU WANT TO KNOW “FOREVER”?! *SHOVES HIM INTO THE DEEPEST PITS OF HELL* THEN STAY THERE FOREVER!
Nikaidou next week…he’s teacher of the year…congratulations…Nikaidou…where’s your car? TAT *too worn out from shouting and crying*
How many more fillers left? Please say it’ll be over soon. Please. Plllleeaaasssseeeee.
