My god, this episode was cute. Very fillery, but it was definitely cute just the same.
I think this episode has the best filler chara and character that I’ve seen in the anime so far. Which just goes to show you that the fillers really would be better if they used the fans’ ideas.
I don’t think everyone is aware of this after I kind of vaguely mentioned it last week, so Kiran was a character created by a fan of Shugo Chara!
There was a competition a while ago in Nakayoshi (though it might not have been run by Nakayoshi, but just advertised in it) for fans to create a chara. I thought that the prize was just to have a plushie made of the character (which they showed in the magazine as well…it was cute), but I guess I was wrong. Either that or they decided to make a filler after the anime got extended, which makes sense. When the contest was running Shugo Chara! was still supposedly set for 51 episodes.
Unfortunately, outside of that I don’t know what else might have been mentioned. I never even try to read the pages before the Shugo Chara! chapter because all the colors they use on those pages make it really hard to concentrate.
So, I couldn’t tell you if say…Minako in this episode is the real name of the girl who made Kiran (though that would be a nice idea).
What I can tell you, is that I enjoyed this episode, because it was really cute. Filler, yes, because nothing happened in this episode. But it was cute filler.
An shugo chara egg gets dropped out of a moving van. Amu and her charas see it on their way to school and bring it to the guardians. The charas all try to get the chara to come out of the egg until they’re too tired. Dia then…astral projects (or something) and tells the chara to come out. After that…Kiran~ is born.
Kiran rushes off soon after and the charas all go looking for her. Through Amu’s classroom (causing a little trouble for Amu) and then each of them encounters Kiran while she’s trying to help someone and makes them smile all kirakira~ (they usually end up helping her before she runs off again). They all catch up with her and help her with a kitty and Yoru shows up then too because they helped a friend of his (kitty~). Kiran tells them she got separated from her owner (or whatever we call them), so Yoru sends out a bunch of his cat friends to find Kiran’s owner and they come back with some strange directions.
Kiran tries to help a delivery guy who dropped a bunch of oranges, but she gets trapped in the box. The other charas try to help her, but they all get trapped in the truck.
They end up in another town and meet up with Eru and Iru who are trying to help Utau who has an event in that town. So all the charas work together to hand out fliers for the concert. By then all the guardians notice their missing charas so they’re looking for them when Amu gets a text message from Utau.
After they finish, Kiran tells them about why she was born. Hinako (her owner) is a really nice girl and wants to help people smile when they’re upset and make friends with them, but she’s too shy and gets embarrassed. So Kiran was born as her would-be self that would make her…not embarrassed. Then Eru and Iru tell them there’s a “pink elephant” (from the directions) in that town. When they get there, Kiran gets weak and falls down. Hinako can’t find Kiran (or because she can’t meet Kiran or something) she’s giving up. Since she can’t see Kiran, she isn’t believing in her and so Kiran is fading.
The charas all rush to find Hinako by going through all the clues, but when they find the last one, Kiran starts fading away. Then Hinako suddenly feels something and Kiran gets better and is able to sense where Hinako is. So the two of them finally meet up. A girl in the playground nearby falls and Kiran chara changes Hinako and she’s able to talk to the girl. Then they go off to play.
The guardians show up (Utau saw them apparently) and Yaya drags Rima off to play. Every one else follows after and they all play for a nice happy ending.
This episode was so corny and cheesy~ But it was cute just the same. It doesn’t really help to get rid of that feeling that Doki keeps getting geared at younger kids, but once again…It’s cute. Shut up.
I don’t have a lot to say outside of “cute” though so I’ll keep it fairly short.
Ohoho~ You guys cheated. Ghost Dia isn’t technically ruining the impact for when Dia hatches again. Dia appeared but she didn’t come out of her egg again, so I can’t complain. It’s like when Dia shows up in Amu’s dreams. Tricky~
I liked Kiran. Best anime-original shugo chara to appear and she was created by a fan which just goes to show…fans know best.
Kiran was really cute with the way she was so polite and stuff (which is why Su is my favorite of Amu’s original charas). I have a real weakness for nice polite girls I guess. She was also just so care free~ Cute.
See? Cute. Worried polite girls are cute.
Hey! Someone remembers that you can’t talk outloud to charas in public. Nikaidou is so smart (or he at least he has some common sense).
Amu did well at first too, but then she lost it. Shouting “me too!” in the middle of class seems especially odd since there was no one said anything that could be a response to. Amu’s talking to herself~
Oh no! Kitty!!! Actually, this part was pretty funny because when the cat meowed, my kitty (Rin) turned around and stared at me. becaise I’m always doing a meow like that at her when she starts meowing at me. (That’s a pretty embarassing thing to tell everyone now that I think about it…)
Awww. Kirakira kitty~
This is what should automatically make Kiran the best original chara. She made “enemies” work together. That’s the mahou shoujo way!
Eru and Iru~! Doing their best for Utau love and adorably carrying around fliers that are too big for them. As expected of Utau’s adorable charas.
(On a side note: I hope Utau’s concerts are going better now)
lol. Eru and Iru weren’t thinking. Cute silly charas.
Omg, shaky Eru is cute. She’s so cute when she’s working hard…and for Utau! As expected of our angel of love, the number one Utau fan (she’s tied with quite a few people though…Iru, Ami, and maybe Amu).
Um…couldn’t a whole bunch of them just floated up at the top to keep it held up instead of lying on top of each other?
Yes! For Utau’s sake Eru can and will do anything! And she will force everyone else to do the same! For Utau~!
Amu…you better have given Utau your phone number or else you deserve a bonk on your head to jog your memory. (Ah, but I know she has so it’s okay)
That aside, here’s my one real complaint this week: Why!? Utau sends Amu a message but we don’t get to see her? She’s in the town and everything! Couldn’t they have taken ten seconds to show Utau?
Eru is the cutests, so she gets fanned first. (My Eru fan state of mind never shuts off!)
Aww. A girl who wants to make friends, but is just too embarassed and shy to be nice.
That’s a problem I have with a lot of filler characters though. Their would be selves usually just are whatever job or whatever they want to be in the future. It’s not about improving themselves. So Hinako is a lot better than other filler characters.
ZOMG no! Kiran caught ghost-chara fever!!!
Actually, I was pretty happy about this. Usually a chara just gets x-ed or something and that’s boring. They only brought up the idea of not believing in charas like…once. In episode two. So I was really happy to see it actually come up. A little change is nice when you hit 61 episodes.
Awww. What a nice reunion. Kind of made me wish I had a chara of my own just so I could hug them. Maybe nendoroids are the right size…(but they’re not squishy!)
Aw, successful first chara change (usually they’re embarassing, but the chara change actually works for this girl). But eh…one more problem this week actually.
I think it came up that Kiran was like Dia, but I think this is the only thing that really struck me as similar, and it really bothered me. The hair clip looks too similar to when Utau chara changed with Dia. I don’t like that, but I guess it was unavoidable (could have given her the little crown or something instead though).
And at the end of the episode every one plays and hold hands…wow. I mean, it’s a little…wow. So ridiculously cheesy. It’s okay though. I’ll let it go.
Besides, it was cute when the charas did it. Eru~!
This episode was a little cheesy and corny and certainly more geared toward kids than a lot of fans would like, but who cares? It’s a filler and I think we all need to step back and stop taking it too seriously or we’ll never enjoy it.
Of course, still feel free to think whatever you want. I always encourage that.
I just don’t think people should complain about nothing happening this week, because…well duh. I’m glad a lucky fan got their chara in the show, but it’s a fan-creation. You have to keep it separate from the real plot. Chara adventure episode did that nicely. Just enjoy it…or don’t. Whatever. It’s a filler, but it made a fan happy so I enjoyed it.
Did somebody ask for a Rimahiko filler? Oh that’s right. I did.
Thank you Satelight~ You can still do nice things every once in a while. I’m taking back my thank you if you screw it up though. (but the preview looks promising.
We also have in image of Rima blushing (for who though!? Amu or Nagihiko and I’m fine with it) and one of Amu too (what’s up with circle blushes next week?). And lol…KusuKusu got mad. Maybe someone made a bad joke. And of course…suspicious Rima.
I look forward to next week. Hopefully we’ll be getting a Kutau filler at some point too.
Hahaha~ I couldn’t help but ask this because of the contest.
Even if you think it’s embarrassing you should answer honestly. It’s all anonymous after all.
Personally, I’d thought about it, but never really did anything. I mean, I think for improving myself I only focus on being healthy. How the heck do you make a chara out of that?
