Special A – Episode 09June 3, 2008 at 4:40 pm | Posted in Special A | 6 Comments
Sorry for the late post. Yesterday I spent the day out doing tourist-y things with my family. We got home at nine and I didn’t even get the chance to torrent the episode until today. And of course, I was slightly delayed today because today the last chapter of ShinKuro was released. That got priority,
Ah, but there’s no way I’d miss blogging this episode. Because this is that episode…and heh…I’ve been waiting since the anime started for this episode. And then there’s the next one…and then sometime after that. Heh.
Hikari gets taken to Yahiro’s mansion. She wants to ask him about Akira. She gets thrown into a jail cell which Chitose helps her escape. Kei and Tadashi go over to Yahiro’s mansion to get back Hikari. Tadashi finds Hikari and they go back. Hikari gets a note from Akira that she brings back right after Yahiro has agreed to let Hikari go and took Kei to where she was (and they’d just discovered she’d escaped). Kei gets mad at Hikari for making him worry (cute moment gets ruined by crayon crap). Yahiro has a flashback of Akira telling him to never show himself in front of her again. Tadashi and Akira have a cute little moment. In the car on the way back, Hikari kisses Kei on the cheeck because Yahiro told her that boys forgive girls if they give them a kiss. After explaining this to Kei, Kei gets mad and essentially tells her to watch her back. On the airplane on the way back Hikari’s all happy, Kei’s all moody and Kei calls Hikari number 2.
If you want more than that you’re out of luck. Because you have to watch this episode if only for the chu.
Woo! Who else has been waiting for this? Because this episode finally forces the HikarixKei relationship development into full speed. At least from Kei’s end anyway. Hikari’s too dense to realize any thing is different.
Heh…I just have to record every single moment of Kei’s evil auras. Oh I’m so glad Jun Fukuyama voices Kei. No one does that darkly evil voice quite like him.
Hmm…it seems like they made Yahiro into more of a “villain” in the anime. In the manga his whole imprisoning Hikari plan was just ridiculous and the only time he really seemed like he was doing something wrong was in that arc with Akira. I think that’s what the anime’s main problem is. Too much serious business. They take away some of the fun and make things more DRAMA!!!
That aside…Chitose was cute. He wasn’t in this chapter of the manga, but I’m glad the anime added him in. Heh, such a cute bratty little kid. Though, I’m pretty sure this is the last we’ll see of him. He has yet to appear in the manga again I believe.
Yay! See critics! This series gets into other characters’ development. It just takes a few episodes of ridiculous KeixHikari non-development to get there.
I like Akira. She doesn’t get enough love. I’m really glad we’ll be heading into her story more after making a few quick stops with other characters. Yes, looking forward to it. Because Yahiro = Development.
lol, Rich boy fight. Who has more money!? Ah, this was more entertaining than in the manga somehow. A rare feat for this anime. Maybe just because Jun Fukuyama entertains me. Yes…that must be it. I’m enjoying him more as Kei in SA this week because I didn’t get my weekly dose of Zero.
Ha! Your attempts to ruin all my favorite KeixHikari moments with that stupid color thing have failed! I snagged a crayon-free screencap of this cute moment! But still…annoying when they add that in. But I don’t care. Kei looking all worried was crayon free and it made me giggle so I am a happy girl.
Woo! Finally! Non-violent TadashixAkira development. Is that a blush I see? Oh it is! Akira is so tsundere. I love her.
Looking forward to future episodes for the TadashixAkira development too. They’re my third favorite couple in the manga, but probably second in the anime since I doubt we’ll get to Finn unless they add on a second season. Which I very strongly doubt. Gonzo and AIC have been doing a crappy job adapting this series so it won’t be popular enough to get a second season. No way.
And here it is people! WOOO! In the anime they made it seem like Hikari was going for something else and that made me giggle. Not yet Kei. Not yet. But still~! Haha~! This is why I love Hikari for being dense, because I get this. Once she’s not as dense in the manga she’s way too shy for this sort of thing.
Saying she stops being dense isn’t a spoiler btw. It’s just common sense. It starts happening in the next few episode.
But oh! This leads to everything. I’m so looking forward to it.
I also liked how they flashbacked to Yahiro’s kissing idea instead of showing it in sequence. It makes it a bigger surprise for the anime-only fans. Like…OMG! Kiss (on the cheek)! Woo! In the manga I pretty much expected it while I was reading.
Alright! Evil aura #2! Seriously, when I was reading the manga, this was the chapter (and the ones after) that made me love the series. We go from 0 development to…development and giggle-worthy scenes in every single chapter. Oh yes. Though I get the feeling the anime will keep things slower since episodes are longer than chapters…but still. Development~! Haha~!
Exactly the same as when they went to Hawaii. Poor Kei. It must be tough liking a girl who’s denser than a brick. (lol, and look at all the stuff Akira bought)
It’s been a while since Hikari got “ni-san”ed so I felt it was screencap worthy. Ha. But she did beat Kei in the popularity contest recently. Go Hikari!
I kind of expected them to skip the next chapter. There’s nothing overall-plot related happening in the episode. But I’m really glad they aren’t. I like the episode.
lol, I assume this either anime-original or replacing that scene in the garden, but so begins Kei’s real advances on Hikari. Looking forward to it. It also looks like they show him kissing Hikari’s hand…like instead of her hair. I don’t really care either way as long as it’s in there. Haha~!
Hey…it’s the loser from the first episode! Anyone else remember him? It’s been a while. It’s so rare of Maki Minami to bring back a one-chapter character, but she brought him back. Heh…he’s such a ‘tard. I hate him. I wish he got beat up again, but if my memory is correct, he just gets owned.
Hey! Ryuu development! The chapter barely qualified for a Ryuu-centric chapter in the manga, so I assume the anime will be adding in some stuff as well. This and the Sakura stuff is the only Ryuu & the twins development we’ll be getting in the anime. *sigh* It’s too bad that recent awesome chapter about Ryuu and the twins won’t get animated. But I can deal.
And so everyone…I’m raising my expectations from now on. Because from here on out is where all the stuff I love about SA shows up. So Gonzo (and AIC too I suppose), stop being sucky. Get your act together or I will be visiting you with my trusty whiffle bat…or something more dangerous.
