Doom! Doom! Doom! Doom! I’m in despair! I’m in despair that this show is finally admitting of being a harem show!
Oh boy, Segoku’s the appearance in this episode really doesn’t serve any purpose at all. I mean, if you think it does then please tell me, but the way I see it, Sengoku Nadeko shows up to be a loli moe service blob and Araragi just acts out (almost) the desire that all Japanese school girl lovers need to express. Oh and don’t forget, Shinobu or whatever her real name is, stares at Senjogahara and Sengoku with jealous eyes but gazes at Araragi and Oshino with loving eyes!
Like a good young, innocent harem girl, Nadeko simply doesn’t seem to understand how close she is to be raeped by him.
Doom! Doom! Doom! Doom! I’m in despair! I’m in despair because the most interesting character isn’t showing up again!
Um…Senjogahara has to be the most interesting character in this show with her charming wit, whether you’re FASCINATED with her or not (I’m OK), but she isn’t here again. I think her seiyuu, Saito Chiwa, is sick and can perform. Unless the story calls SJgR to be absent and then come back to question all Araragi’s acts shared with all the other girls or calls her to act like Akari from To Heart one anime, I think something smells like cat’s poo here.
So. I was wrong about Tsubasa’s vast knowledge has something to do with a monster. We see a more serious problem – a problem that doesn’t seem to make sense at all to me – that her mom’s new husband and her dad’s new wife are her parents now. If that isn’t bad enough, they’re Japanese people in the harsh society they’re in. Or to put it precisely, the weight falls squarely on Tsubasa’s shoulders. She’s a child with potentially “problematic” family and God knows how many jeers and snickers she has heard from others? But she was inspired to be an excellent student and she probably worked her ass off while enduring stress from all directions.
However, the issue lies deep within her family. One smack on the face may be the indication that there has been many more abuses; or it may not. It is anime so take everything with a grain of salt. FYI, parents in Asia used to exert more physical punishments on their kids, at least in Taiwan, and most kids grew up OK. But in any case…
Hanekawa Tsubasa’s story happened before Senjogahara’s story, and you know, not too much unlike a certain murderous anime romance story, Tsubasa has been doing all she can to help Araragi and Senjogahara to be together and stay together. But as this is a harem show at the core – serious themes or not (harem shows can have very serious themes), you know that she likes Ararararagi’s too.
Her stressed had already exploded during Golden Week. But her headaches haven’t gone away.
Enjoy Hoc-chan’s performance, please.
Because there are so many cats, is it possible that the Cat monster hasn’t gone away for good?
Is this a real disease in her head?
Additional notes: imitating Gainax, this episode has some parts that purposely avoided having to animate character’s lips and other delicate parts. And because it’s imitating Gainax, some of those shots seem to be make sense but for any Evatard out there, as soon as you see those shots/scenes, you’ll begin to wonder.
Play your own version of the music when the hero getting the important item in a game like Zelda, Final Fantasy, etc during the scene where Araragi Koyomi gets the bloomer and Japanese school girl swimsuit for maximum fun~oh and if you have some girls’ intimate wear, please sniff and play with them for maximum humor!
Also, why explain in large texts that a flashback is a flashback? Are we stupid? No. As they say in writing, Show, don’t tell. Flashing texts and all just gets really annoying after a while. What the hell is the point? Because of the last episode, I have been in despair and I can’t trust them at all!
This is what I would love to see – all the bakemono fights over Arararararanenenenennyanyanyanyanonononononunununununyonyonyonyonyonenenenenegi Koyomi in a bakemono-death match in oil and jello! AWESOME! Get sumu get sumu get sumu!
Nothing beats escaping from reality and this show delivers the goods. We have a female loli-con and now not two but three lolis, one played by Kugimiya Rie. I’m not into lolis but hey, female kids are much cuter than male kids, whom I’ve seen running amok being annoying. But for those of you who craves lolis, how’s a tsundere loli sound?
I’ve never understood why some people would categorize this show as a fan service show except for the public bathhouse episode, which they censored all the goodies on the version I saw. However, after watching this episode and reading into the sick-minds interesting insights from some folks, I came to realize why.
Seeing poor little Kana being scared, squirming and the like all the while needing a lot of help (perhaps from some Otaku ojisans in the audience) really did make me go, “aw, how cute.”
This time, Haruka, the Horie Yui character (my, look how far she has fallen) gets to hug and squeeze both Kana and Mika, the Kugimi character. That was such a treat.
I wanna hug you and squeeze you and love and get fuzzy wuzzy with you!
Maybe we guys just like to see women all scared and vulnerable over little things like lighting and cats in the dark?
Oh and for those of you lolicons who hasn’t seen the part, if you cared, Kana goes to the bathroom and you will get to see her in there.
I pass. Moving on…
This just in – July 10, Miyazaki City, Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan – just a few minutes after 11:45 PM Japan time, the local police arrested Sakamoto Kazami, a local elementary school teacher who has been secretly drawing and selling “animal boys love” doujinshi for 3 years. The “Shin Mobile Morality Squad“, which the Diet reported 2 years ago, has been tracking the activities of this woman for some time. They collaborated in the her arrest. According to police chief Yamada, this was a “victory against public immorality in the other direction.”
“She did sell her work in Tokyo primarily, but then she decided that there should be some freedom for a close-knit society such as the one in Japan – she felt that we had to learn to allow people to express themselves as individuals, and thus she began selling her wares online and also distributing some of her work as well as others’ work over Winny.” Chief Yamada said. He refused to comment whether her 1-year study in US had any influence on her behavior.
Such arrests seem to be becoming more common in recent days as artists formerly enjoying their relative freedom in Tokyo as well as in their own backyard are becoming wearier of the actions of the local police and the Shin Mobile Morality Squad, as well as the politicians’ efforts to make Japan more “westerner friendly”.
It is our opinion at the Diet that further arrests for yaoi artists as well as loli-artists aren’t far off.
