That’s better. A filler about actual characters in the show. And what’s better is that it focuses on a pairing that is rather widely supported by the fans. Rimahiko~! Of course just the general friendship cuteness, but the point is, I am pleased.
That’s right Satelight! Please the fans!
Also we finally have some proper news for the CrunchyRoll streaming.
Crunchyroll put up the full info on their new anime subscriptions. Of course they’re still only telling us about four series, even with their vague promise of “many more”. The episodes will be put on the site about one hour after they air in Japan with subtitles. They’ve also greatly improved the streams for the paid subscriptions which was my biggest issue until just now.
However, the price is pretty much going to double if you don’t get the preorder. And if you don’t pay for it, you just have to wait one week for the content to be available anyway.
I got the 12 month preorder because it’s worth it for me. I don’t want to change my routine with Shugo Chara! (and Skip Beat!) and I find no reason to download torrents when I have easy legal access online. The stream actually seems to be better quality than a lot of the raws and apparently the subs can be turned on and off, so I’m good on all fronts.
I’m not offering advice, just laying out the facts and my own plans. I chose this way because I’m a blogger and I’ve become accustomed to my immediate blogging, plus with subs (hopefully professional, but not the condescending type for these subs) it will be more accurate blogging too. Better for me, better for my readers.
Now before we move on, let me give one warning. If anyone turns this into a debate in the comments, I am going to delete your comments <i>so</i> fast. Episode relevant parts too. If drama evolves from the crunchyroll crap (which it will) I’ll probably make a post in the future, so keep your crap to yourselves or to forums until then. Keep it off my blog.
(Quick Summary to get the post up quickly)
Rima is feeling down because she hears the guardians talk about Nadeshiko again. Seeing how close Amu is with Nagihiko doesn’t make her very happy either. So Amu invites her out to cheer her up, but…with Nagihiko. They spend the whole day trying to cheer Rima up while they’re out. Then some x-eggs (accidentally released by our idiot scientist trio who are collecting them for the violin plan) appear. Rima and Amu start to fight them (Rima once again pointing out that Nagihiko can’t do anything) but when the x-eggs go after Rima, she’s saved by Nagihiko (kyaaa~). After that they all work together to fight the eggs and heal them. THen Nagihiko falls down into a hole and makes Rima laugh. But their rivalry is reignited when Nagihiko pulls Rima down into the hole too.
Oh~ I enjoyed this episode so much. Let us know that they haven’t forgotten the plot and much better…they gave me exactly what I wanted. Rimahiko filler!
Kutau is next, right? (After the Lulu episode, right? RIGHT!?)
…Go away you guys! But glad to see that because these fools are on the job, the plan is proceeding very slowly. (Also glad to see x-eggs)
Ah. After seeing these idiots, I kind of wanted to see Ikuto (because I’m greedy) but now that I think of it…if Ikuto isn’t around that means he’s safely away from Easter, right?
No kirakira’s like Rima-chan when she smiles. Ah…so healing. I can’t help but smile myself.
The reactions to Nadeshiko. Amu is happy, Rima is not, and Nagihiko is trying not to look suspicious. Alright. That’s our wonderful trio for the episode.
Nadeshiko! I miss “her” even though “he” is still around. Nadeshiko…
Well, technically almost all of the original guardians can still hang out now when Kukai comes to visit. I still want Amu and Yaya to find that out though…
Aw…Rima… Rima’s theme music (or her sad one anyway) gets to me every time. Poor Rima. Amu’s her favorite person and she’s feeling so down that she might not be Amu’s favorite person. Rima ;_;
Ah. I think I mentioned this before, but I want to see what Rima’s reaction would be to Amu having a boyfriend (Ikuto btw). So many characters that I want to have more interactions.
Aww…Rima~! I could have done a whole montage of cute melancholic Rima pictures, but I’ll keep it limited to the cutest. Because this episode was so awesome that I used an amount of images only really known in amuto episodes before this.
Rima! It’s so cute how happy she is that Amu comes up to her. She’s like a little puppy.
…A stubborn jealous little puppy.
I actually got made at Nagihiko for coming up (bad me). Rima finally smiled after feeling so down about Nadeshiko being Amu’s “best friend” and then Nagihiko pops up to make Rima all frowny again. Poor Rima.
I have to take back what I said about Rima. No on kirakira’s like Amu-chan. It’s amazing.
Ah…Nagihiko…you’re so easily manipulated now (though Amu’s unaware of it).
Yay! Rima’s happy again because Amu invited her out. So cute…
No! Rima’s frowny because…you know what forget it. Yay again because Rima is fucking cute when she’s pouting.
This time though, if Rima weren’t so cute, you’d have to be mad at Amu. What was she thinking inviting Nagihiko when Rima is feeling down? Oh Amu~ You silly girl.
(I love Rima’s little coat too. So cute…)
Wow. Amu can really stretch her face out. And all for the sake of her friend Rima (Rima should be happier just for what Amu is willing to do for her, I think…). However we don’t use stretchy-face Amu because this is cuter.
And KusuKusu is just like Rima. The comedy drill sargeant.
But the God of Comedy needs to step up herself and tell her fools what comedy is really about! TRY HARDER! ONLY PERFECTION IS ALLOWED!
Sorry Amu. As cute as that is, it’s not perfection (perfection = Bala-Balance Class).
However! Their secret hole plan worked quite nicely!
Tch. Almost there. Rima’s too stubborn.
Nagihiko is so smart and cool. Saying things like “you shold laugh if you want to” (or whatever paraphrasing) and then catching onto the fact that Rima won’t laugh with him around. So cool Nagihiko~ That’s why we chose you for Rima the very nanosecond you two appeared on the same page (at least it was that fast for me).
But *gasp* Rima! So mean. Nagihiko was just trying to be nice~
Oddly enough though I didn’t get mad at her. I just started giggling over how cute Rima was afterwards. She’s just afraid of losing Amu after all. Amu’s her first real friend!
Ah! Yay! Both of Amu’s best friends got to see her house for the very first time together! It’s cute how excited Nagihiko got too. I’m only slightly disappointed that Utau has to be absent, but you can’t have everything.
But…even if I can’t have everything, can I have another sleepover? At Amu’s house?
Nadeshiko~!!! *squee* Nagihiko is more than just a good trap, he can go from boy to girl in five seconds. Amazing!
Ah. Nagihiko is so smart. “Transforming” to keep Amu’s daddy quiet.
Of course, perhaps Nagihiko didn’t think of everything. Because that look for Rima is more than just frowny. That looks like her (adorable) suspicious frown. Ooooo.
So cute how happy Rima was to see Amu’s room (then how Amu got all panicky over how it might not “match her image”). Ah~ Rima-chan~
Tch. But I keep getting reminded of Ikuto this episode. Now Ikuto doesn’t get to…ah! Trying to keep a mildly spoiler-free blog sucks! Especially when everyone probably already knows!
Ball-Rima~ So cute~! Especially angry ball-Rima. That’s something new. Thank you Nagihiko! (lol, Watching them fight is so much fun)
Hahaha. Amu only hung out with boys when she was younger. Her first male harem. (lol, it looks like they’re all older than her too…)
Amu was so cute when she was younger. I especially love that photo of her holding the teddy bear. I really feel like I need to do something with that.
Ehe~! ^_^ I have nothing to say except…I am such an easily pleased fangirl.
I love the early parts of shipping. The smallest scenes can be appreciated that much more.
Aw. Rima. And now Nagihiko is getting to understand why she’s being like that some more because he’s such a smart boy.
Ehe~ I really love early-shipping. Because I got to be happy over the way he said “Rima-chan” even though it wasn’t anything really special.
*gasp* *early shipping overload*
Even though he can’t chara-nari Nagihiko is protecting Rima and he gets hurt and…kyaaa~! What are you trying to do to me Satelight? It’s too early for me to expect something like this~!
Of course, it’s more of a friendship thing at this point and probably goes more to Nagihiko just being an awesome person…but still~!
Saikyou Love Power!!! I was so happy to hear it in there. More people need to buy the single! Because it’s Kanae Ito and it’s cute!
The music felt a little off with some of the fighting, but I think it’s okay because it fits in with the overall mood…
The song especially fit in with this part (ah, it’s my favorite part of the song too~). Rima finally laughed~ (Because of Nagihiko!!!)
Ah~! Rima really is so cute when she smiles!!! Rima~! So…cute…ah!!! (I’m having a minor cute overload forgive my lack of words)
Awww~ And Rima puts her hand out to help Nagihiko out of the hole. So nice and…I am just so satisfied with this episode. Let me just say that now. I got more shipping material out of this episode than I thought I would (of course, I screencapped just about every scene that has any hints whatsoever).
But nonetheless…we have enough for Rimahiko AMVs now right? People need to go make them. Now~
Of course Nagihiko being the devious, smart boy he is has to pull Rima into the hole too. I can’t even be mad at him, because it’s Nagihiko.
Plus this is the sort of stuff that makes me like a pairing that much more~ (Oh this is so much fun!!)
And so we pretty much leave where we left off. Except with a lot more Rimahiko material to work with. So this episode is enthusiastically Fuyu-approved.
More like this. More Rimahiko and now some Kutau too. Show off our side-pairings!
So it’s the Christmas episode and it’s dedicated to Lulu, which hopefully means she’ll get some development and she’ll stop being “that annoying ?-egg girl” to everyone. Because that’s all she is right now.
Also…what’s up with the preview? Is that Amu and Lulu getting along? Already!? Wow Lulu. Maybe she’s not that much of an Utau=copy after all. She’s not nearly stubborn enough.
And let’s see what else? Oh we can look forward to Amu with…spiral awesomely cute shoujo pigtails! Yes. YES!
Oh yeah and there’s a new single for Buono! coming out in February so I’m guessing that Buono! is doing the next ending theme. It should be changing sometime in the next three weeks. I’m guessing the week after next because that’s what happened in the first season. They changed it on episode 13 and episode 64 is technically “Doki – episode 13” too.
Another obvious one for a Rimahiko episode.
I am for Rimahiko and anyone who isn’t can be my enemy, okay? (No not okay, don’t take me seriously)
