That’s right. Even though this is Tadase’s episode, Utau gets the spotlight. Take that Tadase! I will never give you the big image spot! Never!
Besides, the Black Diamonds song was so awesome it deserves the spotlight.
Seriously though, thank god for Utau and her awesome new song because that’s all I liked about this episode. Everything else was…well let’s all say it together, “GAY!” Yes…very gay.
(As a warning, I didn’t look up anything in this episode, so my summary is untrustworthy and just an excuse for me to bitch a little really…though I did summarize a little).
Things open with Utau and her clearly awesome new song and ominousness.
Then we cut to shota-Tadase saving another shota from bullying, but he fails. Because he’s Tadase. And then he gets all emo and starts crying because he crushed a flower (say it with me…gaaaaay). Then there’s some old strict lady (grandmother I guess) and Tadase wakes up from his gay childhood memory-dream. After Tadase wakes up he goes to visit his bitch grandma with some flowers. She’s sleeping and possibly sick I guess.
On the way to school Amu’s charas make fun of her yawning. She turns into a drooling fangirl for Tadase. Amu notices that he doesn’t seem to be feeling well but Tadase says he’s his usual self. Then when they go to class everyone’s talking about a new CD that apparently grants wishes (give you three guesses about whose it is). Neither Amu or Tadase know anything about it.
They talk about the CD more in the Garden. Supposedly it’s haunted or cursed or something too (I don’t know, I’m msotly guessing at meanings there). Then Yaya starts freaking Amu out with ghost stuff and Rima scares her too. Then Kairi and Musashi plot a little with the CDs.
Then cut to more Utau awesome singing. Enjoy it! They give the CD out for free to people. Everyone seems entranced by Utau singing or something.
After school Amu looks for Tadase because he wasn’t feeling well (bleh, just go home Amu). Amu’s charas get all involved in her business (including Eru the angel of love), but Amu firmly ignores them this time. Amu finds Tadase in front of the planetarium. Amu brings up the planetarium’s nice caretaker and Tadase starts laughing. Inside the planetarium Amu learns that the caretaker is actually the first king (and we saw just before that he has a copy of the book from the…second episode too).
Tadase talks to Amu a little and says he wanted the CD too (or something). Amu asks what he’d want and he says something about being strong or something. Then there’s a flashback of Tadase crying with that dog of his and his grandma being f’ugly. Tadase explains a little about his grandma who I guess always told him to be strong and stuff. Then Tadase goes on more emo about not being able to find the embryo and some other crap. Then Kiseki gets all ticked at Tadase and talk him out of it or something. Amu joins in too.
Now for a brief interruption. Right here is where there should have been a cute scene with Ikuto and the first king, but no. NO!
Back at Amu’s house, Amu is thinking abotu Tadase and Kiseki, her charas all try to cheer her up. Eru interrupts with Utau love~! She brings up Dia and everyone goes emo again. Emo Amu talks about Dia and stuff (or whatever) and Eru falls asleep.
Back at Tadase’s house Kiseki and Tadase aren’t talking or something because of their fight (was that what that was?). Tadase finds the CD in his bag (put there by Kairi no doubt) and gives it a listen. Kiseki discovers him when he’s already all entranced and crap and Kiseki starts to get forced into his egg. Then zombie Tadase starts walking off somewhere. Kids all over listening to Utau’s awesome song do the same and follow the music to a van.
Meanwhile Kairi is doing the dishes and feeling bad about what he did, putting the CD in Tadase’s bag under his sister’s orders (personally, I think he did us all a favor).
On her balcony, Amu is thinking about Tadase not feeling well (No! The balcony is reserved for Ikuto thinking only!). Amu sees a shooting star and wishes three times for Tadase to feel better. She gets hit in the face by Kiseki, learns all the news about Tadase, transforms into Amulet Heart, and rushes off to save him.
After flying around a bit, Amu sees all the kids and goes to check out what’s up. Then x-eggs start showing up and Kiseki’s egg starts turning into an x-egg. Specifically, as Amu thinks, like Dia.
Elsewhere, Dia has a reaction. Utau asks what’s wrong and Dia talks! She says nothing really, but still, Dia talked!
Amu sees Tadase and he’s all emo about flowers again. Then he sees Amulet Heart and starts to snap out of it. Amu talks about Dia and stuff to him and tries to get him to snap out of it more by telling him to remember about when Kiseki was born (or something). Then we get a flashback of when Kiseki was born, which was apparently caused by the flower gayness.
More, sapping out of it occurs with encouragement from Kiseki. Then the Humpty Lock glows and a super gay transformation ensues. Twirling just like the girls too.
Amu and Tadase team up and heal the eggs (with Tadase’s new attack) and Kairi and Musashi see it (when did they get there anyway?). Utau sees it as well, but she’s unimpressed. Amu does her open heart and bam, everyone’s healed. They see a bright glowing egg among all the healed eggs that quickly bounces away.
Kiseki and Tadase reunite and there’s a small moment with Tadase’s grandma and all seems to be well.
But in Utau’s van, there’s more plotting. The plans about the indie band Black Diamonds is revealed. And Utau takes off her glasses and gets her name said for the first time this episode (like they’re revealing it or something).
I declare this episode, FAIL! Seriously, it’s an episode straight from the manga, but I still couldn’t sit through it all. They added crap about Tadase and took away my scene with Ikuto! Therefore, automatic, FAIL!!!!
Seriously…not just speaking as an Ikuto fangirl, this episode fails anyway. It’s supposed to make me feel bad for Tadase, but it fails. Every time Tadase said or did anything in this episode, I wanted to smack him and go, “When I was a six-year-old girl I was more gar than you! Stop whining!!!”
He “wants to be strong”? That’s it!? That’s freakin’ it!? LAME!
Well…at least Tadase knows he’s a wussy piece of crap.
Yeah fine. I’m done. I’ll do my proper thoughts now.
Oh those Tsukiyomi siblings and their full moon backgrounds. There just aren’t enough full moons in the year for them, are there? At least not such big moons. But it’s okay because they’re so cool they can make a full moon appear all on their own.
More love for Utau’s awesome hat and glasses. Must…have…that hat. I will grow my hair out long again (used to have it down past my waist) just so I can use a hat like that properly.
Seriously…Utau looks so bad-ass. I can almost buy her as a bad guy with this awesome look. Almost. She’s still too tsundere and lovable for me to buy her being bad really.
This wasn’t in the manga. I can’t read that chapter and there’s not many spoilers about it (because no one cares about Tadase), but I know no grandma appears in the raws.
Dammit Satelight! You’re trying to give Tadase’s character depth! Stop it! He’s a shallow little whiney piece of crap who cries about flowers!!! That’s all! The rest of his character history all just comes from Ikuto. He’s a character development leech!
Doesn’t matter though I suppose. I didn’t feel bad for Tadase at all anyway. It just made me dislike him more.
Utau makes an awesome rockstar. Even more than a pop idol. Look how serious she looks. It matches Utau’s determination more to be a rock singer. Though I still like Utau as an idol. I like Utau no matter what she does.
I suppose I’m just biased to love the new song (does anyone know what it’s called by the way?) because I love Nana Mizuki singing a rock-ish song. Never gotten a rock-ish song for Nana-sama before and it just so fits her. Can’t wait for the CD’s release. August sixth from what I’ve read…yet another thing that comes out after my birthday. Dammit!
See right here? Yeah. There was supposed to be an incredibly cute scene with Ikuto sometime after this. Ikuto in kitty mode! Why!? Why would you do this to me Satelight?
My god…it better show up as filler or something because I can’t think of when it would show up in the next couple of episodes easily. Seriously. I will be enraged if I never get to see Ikuto being a playful kitty. The powerful weapons come out for Satelight cutting out one of my favorite scenes…ever! And I really want to know what’s said in that scene too.
This is the only real conversation Amu and Tadase ever have about themselves and its just Tadase being emo. Seriously, can I declare Amuto ultimate OTP forever now? Because if Peach-Pit seriously went with a Tadamu ending…I’d just be like, “WTF!?” because it makes zero sense to me. This pairing could not be any more shallow. No chemistry, no conversations, there’s not even any drama! More fail for this episode!
Aw, Eru’s Utau love cannot be denied. She’s so cute. I love her more than ever. Even though she was about to go into Angel of Love mode for Amu and Tadase. Though I can fully accept it if Eru did it for Amuto. Because it would be really funny too. And it would probably mean I’d get to hear Ikuto laugh again~!
Hey Dia. So glad to see Satelight has remembered to keep having her show up again. Yay!
Aw, Eru is so cute~! I’m finally going to be getting her keychain (I think). It’s an early birthday present! I’ll be so happy when I get one. I’ll find out for sure if it’ll work tomorrow.
WTF? Dia talked! She really did! And she sounds so cute! Does anyone know who Dia’s seiyuu is? I can’t find the info yet. Let me know! Please!
Lame. I heard about this, but I didn’t think it was true. It really was, specifically “Amulet Heart” who snapped Tadase out of it. More reasons why Tadamu should never EVER happen! Come on!
Gay as expected. Look at that pose. And in addition to the winking, Tadase did glowy naked mode (like the girls) and twirled (like the girls). Freakin’ gay. And that pose, he looks like he’s about to do another twirl. So freakin’ gay!!!
Tadase…you officially aren’t even allowed to use “boku” anymore. Be the girl that you are and use “atashi”, ‘kay Tada-chan?
Hey. Embryo. Too bad the anime won’t ever get to it appearing for really reals.
Utau doesn’t just look cool against the moon, dramatic lighting makes her look cool too. Utau is just super coolness. Though I kind of wish she took off her hat like she did in the manga, because she looked cool when she did that.
More Utau in episode 41! Since I doubt we get any in episode 40.
Hey! Rima’s heart Unlock! Finally! Rima’s cuteness takes center stage again. And it seems like her family problems might get solved.
Specifically, she’s going to have to quit the guardians. But of course, I doubt that will happen. Because Rima-tan is strong and stands up for herself.
And in episode 41 we’ll have Kairi’s problems solved judging by this. Then I predict a break in which Ikuto’s kitty scene will hopefully appear. If not we’ll probably get to see Ikuto in episode 41 with Utau and more violin playing. Unless they decide to stretch Kairi’s stuff across a couple of episode, which I can buy. THough, after that it might be a couple of fillers before we head for the end of Dia’s arc.
Huh. There’s only twelve episode of Shugo Chara left. If I wasn’t already thinking that way, now I’d really be doubting the appearance of Ikuto’s arc. Let’s hope episode 51 comes with an announcement about another season of Shugo Chara sometime later. Especially since 51 feels like such an odd number to stop on (why not just go for one more and go for the usual 52…weirdos).
Edit 8/24/08: This post has been comment-locked for only attracting comments from immature fangirls who don’t bother to read more recent Shugo Chara posts or even other comments on this post. Even the Tadase fans are able to poke fun at Tadase. You guys need to grow up. You should also realize that I wrote this right after the episode was aired. Just because you found it today, didn’t mean I wrote it today. And I’m not going to go back and edit it because some new information about Tadase comes out.
The only comments I get are like this or they’re asking me to “take back” what I said about Tadase being “gay”. If you guys read more recent posts, maybe you would see that I took back what I said about Tadase being gay. Of course, i didn’t. I still think he’s girly. Most importantly, I never even said he was gay in the first place. I said, “Gay” in regards to the way he acts sometimes and his chara-nari. And everything’s just been a joke. You fangirls take this more seriously than a friend I have who actually is gay. You act like being gay would be bad and frankly, I find it offensive. I don’t hate Tadase because I think he’s gay, (I dislike him for not behaving correctly and I just poke fun at him for acting girly).
For once in your life you should step back and think before you start typing and you won’t end up sounding like such an idiot. Maybe the fact that I’m no longer enabling you to type right away will give you that chance.
Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
