OMG. I was actually excited about this episode before it aired. When was the last time that happened? Unfortunately my excitement immediately turned to despair upon seeing that new opening (I still want to cry when I see it). But I got picked back up pretty quickly.
Also, this is my first time watching it with the CR subtitles. So, lots of new things this week. A technically new arc, a new opening, and a new way to watch it. Let’s see how it all goes.
(Warning for overdone screencapping again, 54 caps this time)
First off, everyone should know that Shugo Chara showed up on CR like…five minutes after it finished airing. So I might start skipping keyhole and just watch it a half hour later. So, you know…I can understand everything (even if I don’t always need subtitles, the audio on keyhole is awful). I’ll miss doing angry and fangirling spams with everyone on twitter though.
This week we got a new opening (but no new ending for some reason), so I guess I have to do that section…but do I have to? I want to pretend that opening does not exist!
Shugo Chara Egg – Shugo Shugo!
Last time we had Amu dancing like she was on a show for five-year-old’s and this time…she’s walking like she’s on one. Ugh.
And if making Amu OOC in the opening wasn’t enough, now they’re spreading out to the other cool characters. Utau…Ikuto…what are they trying to do to my awesomely cool Tsukiyomi siblings? All of the coolest characters on this show now…before it was just Amu, but now…*despair*
I can’t even grab screencaps to show you how lame it is because it breaks my heart. So I only took caps of things that either looked good or at the very least didn’t break my heart.
It’s such a shame since I think the song was better than the last one. But oh well…what can you do? (You can skip that opening every single time you watch the episode…)
In some ways it’s good (I like when they showed off all of Amu’s outfits and lol cow Amu), but the lame parts are so lame that I really do want to go ahead and cry in my closet. I feel like I lost Shugo Chara again today. Until I got to see some stuff that’s actually from the manga (then I got it back).
Utau still has a pretty big role in the opening, which strikes me as more odd than comforting like last time. She’s really only as important as Kukai now and he’s not in the opening. I guess it’s because she’s always being put forth like one of the main characters. Usually she’s fourth after Amu, Ikuto, and Tadase (but third in popularity polls, hahahaha~).
We also got a little bit of Amuto (then Tadamu for those 20-25% of the fandom) and for the first time a shot of all three which makes sense for where the story might be going (finally focusing on Amu’s love life and such). But really, there’s not much here that would tell us about what’s going to be happening from now on. Lulu is obviously still there, but there’s really no signs of action or anything new in the opening.
Tch…I was at least hoping for one of those openings where the heroine goes about her daily routine so we could maybe see Ikuto in her room, but no. Oh well. I have higher hopes for Buono!’s co.no.mi.chi which is hopefully appearing next week.
Will add in later. And this time I mean it because that’s why I’m watching the sub. To give a full clear understanding now that Shugo Chara isn’t going to be properly available for everyone until next week. Of course, illegal versions of the crunchyroll subs out there which was totally expected. So I get the feeling that lots of Shugo Chara fans won’t even care about summaries anyway. The rest of you can be patient until tomorrow, right?
EDIT (1/11/09): Due to something suddenly coming up the summary is postponed again.
It’s here!!!!! Kinda. Ikuto is successfully in Amu’s room, but Ikuto’s arc still seems to be a little way’s off. Which is fine by me if Ikuto stays put in Amu’s room.
So picking up from where we were last time…
Like the start of all other great arcs in Shugo Chara, Amu has found something interesting in her bed, but instead of an egg this time it was…
…a teenage boy (with his own sound effects~).
And, of course, because she’s Amu she proceeds to freak out (though to be fair, anyone might…before totally taking advantage of the situation).
Amu, Amu~ I believe the face you meant to make was one like ‘dis: >////< Right?
But of course, Amu still being Amu decides to take everything out on Yoru. Awww.
Ikuto ;_; Poor Ikuto out in the snow. Makes me a sad fangirl.
And seeing Ikuto weak even when he’s in his chara-nari! Usually when Ikuto’s tranformed we get to see him being all badass and saving Amu and stuff, but…but! Ah…Ikuto ;_;
Aw. Look how proud Yoru is (as he should be). Just for today Yoru can be my favorite chara instead of Eru (because he brought Ikuto into Amu’s room and Eru’s technically anti-Amuto). But it’s just for today.
“Ikuto! GTFO of my bed!”
Aw. Come on now Amu~ You don’t mean that~
And so begins our wonderful romantic comedy arc where Amu tries to hide Ikuto in her room without her parents finding out and various comprising situations will occur. Situation number one…GO~!
Ah. I am quite fond of situation number one. How about you? (Kira~Kira~ magic shoujo bubbles and sparkles to make sure we only think of this as innocent)
Hehehehe. Amu what kind of things are you thinking now? You’re totally destroying the “this is completely innocent” vibe we’re supposed to be getting from the kira~kira~ atmosphere.
Hahaha~ That’s right Amu. So be a good girl, STFU and get back to bed.
Oi, oi Amu. What the heck are you thinking about doing now? (Meaning, “that’s more like it! Go for it Amu-chan!”)
Amu couldn’t get any sleep because she was too busy staring at Ikuto and thinking about how he looked so defenseless. Sneaky little poser. Thinking those kinds of things.
d’awww. They’re both sleeping like kitties~ How cute~
Ikuto hiding place #1: Make an Ikuto couch!
Ah. Ami’s right he doesn’t. I never even though about that before (how random though).
Oh? What’s wrong now Mr. Asshole Director? Can’t find Ikuto? Even though he’s your stepson and a puppet of Easter? Wow, you must really incompetent to let him get away then. Oh I have an idea. Why don’t you go searching in a dump truck. I promise I won’t pull that compressing lever on you while you’re in there.
Picture only included because I am in uber-shipping mode and they’re the only other pairing I have to be giggly over (Utau~ Where are you?).
Also, Rima’s hair is cute (I still want my twintails!)
Tch. I really want Utau around. It’s not fair.
Hehehe~ Amu~ Are you worrying about Ikuto? You are, aren’t you? How cute.
*gasp* Yoru stole the bunny’s “bum”! (I don’t know why I found this so funny while watching the subs, but I did.)
Oh what’s this Amu? Are you still worrying about Ikuto? Ehehehe~
Whoa. Big snowman. (Seriously how were they able to do that?) and lol at the bucket on its head. So tiny and cute.
Whoa. Rima is scary when angered. I feel bad for Yaya and Ami.
EDIT: lol…it’s Rimadusa~
Nagi~ Poor trap misses the chara that makes his most awesome trapness possible. I am glad that this scene was included finally (because it really shows how smart Nagihiko is~) but it makes me sad.
It also kind of makes me wonder again if we’ll get to see Nagihiko’s chara-nari sooner than we did in the manga. That is one re-ordering of the story that I think they can get away with pretty easily.
Best thing about watching with subtitles? Knowing what the heck this guy is saying. usually I understand or can guess at what the rest of the characters, but stupid Tsukasa is always talking like an adult and pissing me off. (but not anymore~)
Sleepy Ikuto is cute~
One of my remaining complaints with the first season was that they cut out all the cute little moments of Ikuto spacing out early on and that’s part of what made me choose him as a favorite pretty much immediately. But sleepy Ikuto kind of makes up for it~
Stupid glowy violin! Making Ikuto sick! Oh wait…this is misdirected rage. The violin’s just a victim. STUPID ASSHOLE DIRECTOR!
Soon…soon, I will have you thrown from someplace so high into some place so awful that…well…you know. I want you dead and gone asshole (killed by the light of Amuto raburabu!!!!!).
Tadase’s like the fourth person that gets to go into Amu’s room now. I’d feel bad for him if I weren’t so amused by Rima basically saying, “Take that. You’re not even in the running for Amu’s BFF and stuff. Me > You.”
Oh? What’s this Amu? Thinking about a cat-eared boy at home some more? Remembering what kind of things he likes? Showing how thoughtful you are by bringing some back for him? Huh, Amu-chan~?
See? I told you. Mr. Rabbit is missing his bum. (I still don’t know why, but I find that funny and adorable.)
Even though you only thought about him all day while you were out with your friends. Silly little tsundere Amu.
“zOMG a catboy just fell out of my closet?”
Sheesh. Where won’t Amu find Ikuto during these roommate adventures? Ahahaha~
But that’s what you get for being a little tsundere poser Amu. Now you have a teenage boy falling on top of you.
Tch. Even though she said he was heavy, she still managed to avoid him falling on top of her. It’s not fair I say!
“I wasn’t even worried about him. I’m relieved he’s finally gone.” Was that what it was before? Hmm, Amu?
But Amu’s real relief over Ikuto still being there can’t last when Ikuto catches on too easily after Amu accidentally lowers her guard. So a return to tsuntsun and silly little arguments it is.
“I don’t care about you at all, but here I thought of you while I was out and got you food anyway.”
Oh Amu-chan. You’re so great. Even when you try to be tsuntsun and Cool & Spicy around Ikuto you just fail at it in the cutest way.
Cute tsuntsun Amu screencap, simply because she looks oh-so-cute. “Hurry up and get out…(except not really, pls stay).”
But like I said, even when Amu does decide to go all tsuntsun on Ikuto, he sees through her so easily. Chibi jii— ftw! (omg this was so cute…)
And a return jii— so Amu can snicker about Ikuto eating taiyaki like a kitty would.
Ha! Even I find it amusing to hear Ikuto say that. “Says the cat-eared pervert” is right Amu-chan. Though to be fair Ikuto’s never gone into Amu’s room before, just her balcony (but considering what happened there…ahahaha~)
Okay. For once I will have to say it. I couldn’t be the only one thinking that Ikuto should have said, “Should I teach you?” next, right?
(Oh dear me~ This is what happens to me when I wait an extra week for Shugo Chara after having Ikuto appear on Amu’s bed with sound effects. The fangirling comes back and goes into overdrive.)
And this is where I ignore the subtitles so I can imagine all sorts of different things Ikuto can be whispering to Amu instead. These things I will keep to myself though because I like to pretend I’m less perverted (and have less of a rabid imagination) than the other people my age watching Shugo Chara.
Ohohohoho~ Ikuto’s really at his best today. “But you were staring?” Our sneaky, teasing cat boy really knows how to get Amu all flustered, doesn’t he?
But he decided to be merciful and dropped it quickly so he got rewarded with a cutely honest Amu-chan. “You’re not feeling well? I’m worried about you, so please don’t leave.” I believe is the general gist here.
It’s so cute when they’re both being stubborn little posers~ And this time it’s literal. Chibi lover’s quarrel ftw~
Hahaha. And Ikuto’s just way too great in this episode. Even when they’re both being stubborn in their own ways, Ikuto gets to win because Amu gets so worked up.
“Fine! Do whatever you want!”
“kthnx. I’ll just stay in your room until something interesting happens at some point in the future.”
Yup. Looks like Ikuto wins. I like to think that Amu wins too, but she’s just being stubborn because she’s our lovable Cool & Spicy tsundere heroine.
Ehehehe~ Please say that again Yoru. ^_^
Well, it looks like I really, really, really went overboard this time, but it couldn’t be helped. Having the screencaps with subtitles made it just too much fun sometimes. I haven’t enjoyed watching Shugo Chara this much since…well it’s been a really long time. Maybe not since episode 43.
I’m thinking that even if we’re in for fillers, I’m going to be enjoying it a lot more now. With Ikuto being Amu’s “roommate” *insert insane giggling here* I can expect a lot of anime-original Amuto, right? No matter how lame the filler storylines get, I will still be all smiles if I get to see Ikuto in Amu’s room every week *more giggling*
Well. Let’s just see how it goes. At any rate, I think I now have a new favorite episode. Lots of great stuff from the manga executed quite nicely in the anime, with some rather enjoyable add-ins. The only complains is the new opening which I can just skip over anyway. I think my life as a Shugo Chara fangirl is pretty good right now.
The next episode looks kind of stupid. There’s some girl running around like a magical girl with cat ears it seems.
But no matter because…
Ikuto’s still there!
Tehe~ I wonder if I’m even going to be capable of making fun of Doki anymore if Ikuto’s going to be in Amu’s room this whole time. Satelight you sly dogs.
Another easy poll today.
I’m on the “Hell yes!” side of things. Think of all the things that could happen if Ikuto is in Amu’s room for an extended amount of time.
…No not stuff like that. You guyz are pervs~
