I am a peeved and happy fangirl. I’m more displeased than ever with the way Gonzo and AIC have been handeling SA. After the series is over and I do my wrap-up post, I’ll probably write a wrap-up that sounds more like a rant, but whatever. Sacrifices must be made.
Getting to my happiness though, I’ll enjoyed my Yahiro x Megumi episode. Also my Hikari’s sick episode~!
I can’t do a summary today either, since I don’t feel quite right about it. I only read a summary of the manga and since this is an episode focusing on Megumi…I’m really left behind at a lot or parts. I had to go elsewhere for a smmary of this episode myself actually.
Well…I like the Megumi x Yahiro pairing, partially because they’re not a real couple. It’s hard to explain, but people who follow the manga get what I mean.
I kind of wanted to wait on watching this episode for fansubs…but I’ll watch the fansubs eventually anyway. It doesn’t matter that much.
Jumping past all the more boring stuff and going right for Yahiro and Megumi’s date (or rather “game”).
Every time someone first hears about the Yahiro x Megumi pairing they’re kind of like, “Wha?” but it’s really so much fun to watch. Their personalities seem so different, but that’s what makes it fun! And Yahiro got Megumi angry too. The first time I saw scans of Yahiro and megumi together, that was my first reaction, “Whoa! Megumi’s angry.” It doesn’t really happen often…unless Megumi is with Yahiro.
*squeak* Megumi spoke for real~! Ayahi Takagaki has such a cute voice, I’m so glad to finally hear her use it as Megumi~! I mean, we heard it last week, but it’s really not the same thing. Megumi did a lot of talking in this episode. Finally making up for all that time lost.
ROFL. I loved how casually Tadashi’s just like, “Akira and I are going out.” I thought for sure that he’d get belted with something for that, but Akira’s too busy being all flustered.
I really have to say it now…Megumi is my second favorite SA girl in the anime (Sakura is still first). She’s just way too cute! I freakin’ adore her. Up until now she’s just been the silent girl who occasionally makes jokes, but Megumi is just awesome all on her own.
I ended up with so many screencaps of Megumi originally that I just cut it down to this because it’s cute Megumi and cute MegumixYahiro. So…there.
The princess-carry~! Though, I don’t think Hikari said it quite that way in the anime.
I’m really glad these scenes are in here, because this is one of my favorite chapters from the manga. I just wish they’d handled things differently and sped things up before this. In the manga, Hikari already knew she liked Kei for this chapter (she was just holding back so she wouldn’t “lose”), so it made a little more sense. Meh.
But…it’s still funny. lol. Poor Kei.
Nice bento Megumi. But seriously…what was up with her carrying around so many sweets? Does she always do that? Why aren’t you fat Megumi? You don’t even exercise!
Haha, poor Megumi. Her lipstick plan failed spectacularly.
*poke* ROFL. Look at that look on Hikari’s face. It’s like she knows exactly what she’s doing. I’d really think she was doing it on purpose if she weren’t so insanely dense (and really shy about that sort of thing anyway).
I wonder how many times I had to say it in this episode? lol, Kei. This time it’s not even Hikari’s fault either, so it’s just pure lol.
Aww…he boughts her a magnetic writing board. That’s so nice~! Yahiro~!
… >_< Awww~! This brief moment in the anime pretty much made my day. It almost made it worth missing an awesome, free baseball game because I was sick (almost).
S-scary… I have to say though, I really enjoyed having Yuko Goto play Hikari in this episode. Since everyone complained about Yuko not fitting Hikari’s character, I think they can agree she fits Hikari OOC sick character very well!
I know she disarmed Kei by saying, “I like you” but how the heck did the tied up sick girl break through the door? But perhaps I should wonder more about her jumping out her window before this…
Oh yes, these moments were pure roflcakes.
Um…okay. Best disguise in an anime…ever. I love the addition of the Yappy-like bunnies. Pure awesome. You win the best anime chase scene ever Megumi!
Wooot! Alright Megumi! Don’t let Yahiro be his usual self-sacrificing self! Take contol you awesome half-mute girl!
Too bad though. She broke Ryuu.
*squee* Megumi singing! It’s the only time we’ll get to hear it in the anime (outside of the ending theme of course), so enjoy it!
I really like Megumi’s character song, so I really enjoyed her singing it in the anime. So nice and calm…
And Yahiro seems to like it as well~! Is that a smile I see? Not a smirk. A smile~! Haha…yes.
But Yahiro had to be stubborn until the end.
“Did you have fun?” “Not at all.”
Oh well. At least they got my Yahiro x Megumi in there. I’m a happy fangirl.
And what of Kei you ask? He got broken as well and had to spend his time hiding from Hikari on the roof.
…it’s so pathetically adorable that I just have to laugh.
And hey! Next week is that Jun x Sakura episode I thought I’d never see! Awesome!
Now considering how happy I seem about everything, why am I so mad? Because we’re at 19 episodes and Kei and Hikari’s relationship hasn’t progressed at all while all the other pairings get less than 1/4 of the time but manage to get better scenes.
I’m…pissed. I know that Kei and Hikari getting together was dragged out in the manga, but there’s a key difference…the manga had all the time in the world to life Hikari’s dense fog. The anime has 24 episodes. So with 24 episodes, why did we spend so much time with the first ten episodes on…pretty much nothing. A lot of those episodes could have been thrown out. And I’m pissed about it.
The anime is going really great right now, but that just pisses me off more about how up until now…it sucked! They should have just had things moving quickly from the beginning! Really…with the episode descriptions for up to episode 23 popping up, I’m doubtful that Hikari and Kei are even going to get together in this anime.
Of course, that better not be the case of I will be pissed. More pissed than I’ve ever been at any other ending in an anime…and there are some crappy ones out there too.
But that’s it…sorry to end such a fun post with rage…but I can’t help but be pissed off right now.
