Sorry if this is a little later than it should be. I had things to do. Besides, I don’t think anyone was in a real rush.
This filler wasn’t as bad as I was expecting. Which once again proves to me that keeping your expectations low is a good idea. I was expecting awful-ness, but the episode did connect to the plot. As much as an anime-original filler can anyway. Thus, I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed this episode more than I would have otherwise.
Oh and good news for everyone who comes to the blog for my summaries. Lately I’ve been thinking that my Japanese is pretty bad (I’d say I’m below the level of a 2-3 year old) so I’m getting some books to help myself along. You can learn from anime, but it takes a long time. Besides, I need to do something to keep my brain active during the summer.
The episode starts off as a normal day for Amu and her charas. While walking to school she actually thinks about her forgotten Dia egg. In class, Nikaidou announces a new student and the students look outside to see a lot of helicopters arriving to the campus. As everyone’s looking out in amazement it seems that Tadase (who knows freakin’ everything) heard that the new student was a prince. Saaya says, “Ouji-sama!” and just when Tadase is about to switch into King mode Rima shoves a bucket on his head and he goes back to normal.
Then the prince comes out with his…tiger and everyone is in awe. Rima, Amu, and the charas notice that the prince dude has his own Shugo Chara (surprise, surprise). They shows the first king doing his usual useless foreshadowing for a filler episode.
As the prince enters the campus, lots of random showboating ensues. Amu and Rima look rather unimpressed. Tadase welcomes the prince to the school his name is Shiraiya or something (it’s harder to know for sure since it’s not supposed to be a Japanese name). Girls continue to go crazy. Shiraiya says some random stuff, girls continue to go crazy.
Later during gym class, the whole class is tired (and Amu and Rima are cutely so). Amu notices that Shiraiya is just sitting there with Saaya’s little servants fanning him and Saaya sucking up to him. He continues to act like a stuck-up sort of prince. Amu shows up and goes all Cool and Spicy on him. She tells him that he can’t be treated special when he’s attending this school, even if he’s a prince. He tells her that he’s a prince and all that but Amu owns him with, “A prince is a prince, but you’re still a human like us, aren’t you?” (It was hard to translate that line directly so I had to change it a little).
Amu walks away and Shiraiya and his little chara and Amu all notice a X-egg…singing. So Amu runs off to go to the toiler (lol, she does that a lot). Rima can’t go because she’s still too quiet but Tadase says it will be all right with just Amu. She transforms into Amulet Heart and Shiraiya sees. Amu busts out a coller more complicated spiral heart move. She stops the egg with those random sparkles from episode 18 and the Open Hearts it.
Amu undoes her chara nari and Shiraiya approaches her while Saaya and her gang are watching from the bushes. And then I missed out on everything (lol, I tried the best I’m willing to try for a filler episode). It seems like it was possibly a chance to be a princess or something equally crazy.
Whatever Shiraiya’s offer was, Amu rejected it because she doesn’t need anything he can offer. She’s just normal. Amu is pretty rude about it. Shiraiya won’t take no for an answer and comments that it’s the first time he’s met such a stubborn girl (lol, yes many people feel that way about Amu). Her charas comment on the chance and Amu tells them to shut up. Tadase tries to calm things down. Shiraiya’s chara finally introduces itself (don’t care about the name) and Kiseki makes sure he’s floating higher than him (lol). Shiraiya’s servant comments on their true purpose for the trip. And OMFG! Shiraiya came to the academy looking for the embryo!
The guardians are all surprised to learn about the embryo and repeat everything back because it’s after a commercial break. He brings out a diary that it seems his father had as a boy (or something). Basically Shiraiya just explains about the embryo and what his dad heard and it lead him to Seiyo. Then Kairi reveals something about Shiraiya’s father (no idea what, not paying attention). The guardians remark about he’s a wonderful father but Shiraiya suddenly says that it has nothing to do with his father.
He orders them to all help him find the embryo but they all leave. When he asks why they reply that they’re looking for it themselves. Then randomly it seems like next month is Shiraiya’s twelfth birthday or something (wtf? if I really heard right, that’s random). And he’s set to inherit his country or something crazy (I really think I’m hearing this stuff right and I’m checking to be sure, but it sounds so ridiculous that I’m not sure).
Shiraiya then goes to hang out in the planetarium. He has a flashback of some fight with his father ending up saying about how he’ll make his own dream come true (or something, really not paying attention). The first king then reveals himself and says that it’s been a while. They take about Shiraiya’s father a little. Nothing important to the real plot.
Amu sees Shiraiya continuing to be all whiny about whatever his problem with his father is to his servant and crap. The servant sees Amu and Amu tries to make excuses but the two end up talking. The sevrant’s name seems to be…Paru (I assume it’s spelled differently, but that’s what I’m going with). Amu comments that her job must be tough, but paru says not really because Shiraiya is nice (lol, must have missed that). And it seems we have yet another stubborn person (it doesn’t work as good with boys). The tiger comes up and scares Amu away, then the tiger plays with Paru, Paru’s hair comes undone and Amu asks if Paru’s a girl (lol, were we supposed to think she was a boy?). And it seems she likes Shiraiya.
Then Shiraiya and all the charas seem to decide to look for information on the embryo again (random). The guardians all show up to basically be like, “not finding anything, huh?”. Randomness ensues (including Su finding Amu’s test with a score of 65 and Yaya’s with 55). Then it seems everyone wants to know what Shiraiya’s wish is. It seems he wants to slay dragons and have a large harem including Amu. Everyone decides to leave. Before they leave it seems Amu correctly guesses (if my translation is right) that Shiraiya just wants to do what his father couldn’t.
Then Easter and Utau come up. When Shiraiya asks who Utau is Eru tells him she’s an idol and her real owner and stuff. And if I’m getting it right Shiraiya tells them to bring her there now. But of course, they can’t do that.
Later that night it seems Kairi tells his sister what Shiraiya said and she’s laughing. Kairi tells her about how he’s also searching for the embryo and Sanjou seems to come up with an idea.
Now we get a peek at what Sanjou’s latest plan has been as she is with some scientist dude making something with X-eggs. Sanjou calls Utau.
That night Shiraiaya is thinking about Amu. Then randomly Utau shows up in his room. She holds out something and asks if he was looking for it, implying that it’s the embryo. Then she gives it to him.
Okay…I actually really enjoyed this filler. Rima, Amu, Eru, and that brief moment of Utau all made it win. As expectected, I can tolerate stupid filler characters when Amu shows how much better she is. *sigh* If only there was Ikuto and I’d call this filler a success. I mean…it even had Easter. If they just had Ikuto hanging out on the roof like usual then it would have been awesome. That’s all I really need.
Okay, outside Amuto and Amulet Angel attacks, this is the best anime-original moment…ever! When Rima just showed up and put the bucket on Tadase’s head I was like, “OMFG!YEAH!” Best moment ever!!! I love you Rima! Such a good idea. It even worked. Ah, putting a bucket on Tadase’s head is definitely approved. Wish I got to do it too.
Seriously, words cannot even describe how awesome this moment is. Once this happened I immediately forgave Shugo Chara! for the past few fillers and their sub-par humor. Because this was awesome.
Ah, I totally wanted to smack filler prince right here. But it’s okay, he wasn’t as much of an ass as I thought he would be. I still hate Tadase tons more than him. So all is right with the world. Besides, he gets owned by Amu later so everything is fine.
These random Eru moments were awesome. This and this had me squeeing like a fangirl for some reason. Why are you so incredibly cute and wonderful Eru, why? Before Eru I had no idea it was possible to love a chibi one-dimensional character so much. I want her keychain. If I get an Eru keychain I will use it forever!!!
Oh yes Amu. This is why you are my second favorite character in Shugo Chara!. Even though you aren’t too swift when it comes to love you freakin’ own almost everyone who deserves it. At least in the anime. There was even that moment in episode 30 when you were like, “only Amulet Heart?” and made Tadase freak out a little. Yes Amu. You show all boys their proper place.
Whoa…they like super upgraded Spiral Heart and made it so awesome. Therefore, I have no complaints about Amulet Heart showing up (she needs the spotlight too sometimes anyway). The attack just looked too cool for me to complain.
lol, Kiseki purposely floated higher. I may not like Tadase, but I think Kiseki is just so incredibly awesome.
Bara-Bara~nsu ftw! I probably wouldn’t have been so incredibly into this if it wasn’t for the fact that Eru was doing it too. I just love absolutely everything Eru does.
So…does Eru just carry around a picture of Utau wherever she goes? Seriously, where did that come from? I hope Eru just carries it around in some secret Angel pocket because it’s just way too cute how much she loves Utau. More love for Eru~!
ZOMG! EASTER AND PLOT!? NO WAI!!! Though I really have no idea what they hope to gain with this new plot involving filler prince. It’s going to easily be resolved in the next episode and likely just has his egg being X-ed so…why bother? It seems…kinda silly. Maybe I missed something though.
Oh…my…god…it really was Utau. Nice catch warriorhope!! I guess the rest of us were all thrown off by the fact that Utau’s hair was actually different and she looked all un-Utau like in the preview with the really random outfit, but really, nice catch.
And the outfit was really random and all that and I’m totally unsure what the point of it all was, but Utau looked awesome. I had to edit the screencaps in photoshop to give the full view. Seriously, why doesn’t Utau have a gigantic legion of fanboys? As far as I know most boys that like Shugo Chara! like Utau, but seriously…there must be more. Utau is just…awesome. She only appeared for about a minute, but she’s pretty much the most memorable thing about this episode (except Tadase the bucket head).
Sure…ominous glowing purple thing is the embryo. In all anime dark glowing purple things are evil. Why did filler prince fall for this? The embryo looks something like this. Not like that. Dumb filler prince.
Also, wasn’t it random for them to make Utau give the embryo thing to him? I’m not complaining because it gave me Utau, but it still seems random.
It basically just follows this week really. Shiraiya’s chara is all sick (OMG! NO WAI!). Paru looks like she’s going to randomly get a chara too. And who wants to bet Shiraiya and Paru blush with each other or something lame? Yeah…this week was funny, but next week is going to be manufactured drama, so the expectations are low again. All I’m hoping for is maybe more Utau.
And the best thing about next week? Episode 38 preview baby! Amuto is on the way!!!
Oh and as a final note, I hope everyone is remembering not to to take my summaries as the law, because I often have to make guesses and stuff. Now that my blog is becoming popular, I just felt I had to restate it again. I’m going to be working on my Japanese over the summer, but I’m really a beginner. Just everyone remember to keep that in mind.
And finally…episode 38 is coming soon! Lock and Key stuff! Come on!!!
