I got my wish(es). The Ikuto arc has started before the new year! Unfortunately the Lulu stuff is still going on, but for the meantime (at least in the next episode) Satelight is following my second wish.
That second wish, of course, pretty much guarantees Amuto in every episode.
… *insert all sorts of fangirling craziness here*
The Shugo Chara! fangirling crisis is successfully averted. Thanks to Christmas, my own ponderings, and…this. THIS!!!!111
Yes, yes, and I want tons of fillers now. TONS! As long as Amu spends at least one minute in her room every week I can persevere through anything. Hahahaha~ *drunk on fangirling*
But one quick thing. I got the feeling from comments last week that some people still don’t know. The next chapter of Shugo Chara isn’t being released until February. Peach-Pit (if it’s one or both of them I don’t know) is sick. Anyone who complains gets labeled a fanbrat. Instead wish thes manga-ka who make the series you like a quick recovery.
Now then, it’s too bad the raw came out extremely late and that I tried to wait for it. I would usually only wait until 1AM, but I got caught up doing stuff and before I knew it it was like…4AM. So I didn’t wake up until 6PM and here we are now.
But enough of that. Skip the summary and go for the thoughts. (Summary should be filled in better later)
Guardians go to their first shrine visit of the new year, random filler happens on that end. They all meet Lulu and Lulu does her ?-egg thing. The only useful note is that Amu got a fortune about a shooting star (like having an encounter with a shooting star or something~). But that’s it on that end.
Ikuto’s back at Easter still coming to meetings and crap with the director who continues to be an asshole. But while Ikuto was listening to this crap, Yoru stole a key from the director (to Ikuto’s violin!). So Ikuto steals back his violin and escapes. But now the violin glows all ominously and Ikuto isn’t feeling well as he tries to escape (random meeting with Lulu that I really don’t think was imporant) and…
After the day is over Amu wonders about the “shooting star” in her fortune again but flops into her bed. At first, she seems completely unaware, but then notices that lying in her bed right next to her is Ikuto. (OMGz!!!!)
Xiao Jie just did a wonderful summary on her new blog earlier today, so I think anyone who wants better right now can go there.
Um…welcome back Shugo Chara?
Well, there was filler added in, but it’s kind of slipped my memory. I don’t care about it, so I won’t even mention it (but it’s totally there, all the best stuff is at the end).
Normally starting the episode like this would cause me to curse Satelight and Easter and all other evildoers in the world (wait…does that make Satelight evil too?), but it’s fine today. Ohoho~ I may dislike the way that they’re always shoving the violin in our faces so we already know it means trouble before trouble even starts, but! But~! Ehehehe~
I think you get giddier for this sort of thing when you sit through quite a few weeks of anime-original stuff. I might not be so crazy if the Dia arc actually took 26 episodes.
Anyway Lulu…isn’t annoying me as much. She’s still not up to the standards of the other Shugo Chara characters, but I don’t know. She’s getting development now and she’s not seeming quite as much like the other girls (though I still wish that they thought up something for her issue that didn’t include weird parents).
Amu looks pretty in her kimono~ Her hair looked better last year though. I like Amu’s changing hairstyles, but now it seems like she has her hair every way except her signature style. Not really a complaint, but I kind of miss it every once in a while. Maybe once school starts again?
Nagihiko looks good dressed as a boy, but he still looks like a girl (at least in this shot he does though…). I’m starting to think that something would just feel wrong if Nagihiko cut his hair (then he can’t switch into Nadeshiko on a whim!).
Hahaha~ Other pairings don’t even bother me a bit anymore. I’ve become pretty calm about this series and I like it (Of course I was always calmer than lots of other fangirls I could mention…).
I do want to take the opportunity to say something that’s a little bit related to the manga. My point of “shallowness” still stands after all this time. Not for the pairing as a whole, but still on Amu’s end of things. Now look what reading the manga has done to me! Watching some scenes I’m now going to have to think, “poor Tadase” instead of the other way around. It feels like the world’s gone upside down.
Thanks to Rima I might have a ponytail moe. Hahaha~ No I’m kidding (I am not a fanboy!). However, it’s really nice to finally see other girls with different hairstyles (looks like we get even more from Rima next week).
So…now can I have Rima in twintails? OMG please? That would seriously be cute…
Ahahaha~ Amu got “great luck” so I assume that means finding a catboy in your bed is lucky? Well most fangirls would agree I think.
Nagareboshi~ (I think I heard a song like that somewhere…) Like warriorhope, the “shooting star” line has become my favorite in the manga. More catch-phrases and such will rise from it now I believe.
Oh too bad. A nice little stain on Nagihiko’s 100% right record. This doesn’t refer to friends at all. This refers to catboys landing in someone’s (Amu’s) bed.
I think this is just a poor attempt at Satelight trying to throw us off the trail. Too bad for them that it doesn’t even work on English-speaking fans anymore. Scanlations just started up again fools! (of course they wouldn’t know that)
Is it just me or is srs bsns Rima even more formiddable when she has that adorable messy ponytail?
Meh. This would have to be my one problem left with Lulu. Having her still be around in Ikuto’s arc makes her feel so out of place. Go away~
Or really, go away before the other stuff starts. For now it’s fine (fillers = more time spent in the room).
EDIT: Oh yeah, because I forgot (and have nowhere else to put it) What happened to Ikuto’s outfit from the manga!? There’s no school right now. Put him in the outfit from the manga! Stupid Satelight!
Aw…Poor Ikuto. …Ah. Sorry. I can only say that with half of my heart in it today. Sorry that you need to be surrounded by suckiness Ikuto, but such things are necessary to lead you into someone’s room (and bed).
Oh yeah also asshole director. Since it’s been a while…I want him shoved face first into a bed of glowing red coals. This one is good, right?
Ohohoho~ I love seeing Ikuto outsmart the people at Easter so easily. I don’t care what happens later! Let me enjoy this! Because obviously no one wanted him to run off with the violin. Therefore this round goes to Ikuto.
Indeed this round goes to Ikuto too.
Oh Easter. What a sucky company. The real employees are so afraid of the employees working against the company, that now they’ll tie themselves up. If that company really existed in today’s economy (at least in the US) they would be going down. None of the people running the company can really be that smart if they hire people like this.
Ah…I thin I enjoy scenes like this so much because annoying characters that aren’t in the manga need to know their place! (Same reason I enjoyed Ikuto annoying Lulu in the early episodes of Doki)
Too bad about the violin though. Totally ruined our Ikuto > Everyone momentum that we had going. But I can’t be too sad (It won’t be long now~).
Yes. Rima has successfull out-bitched Lulu. Utau next, right? Let’s go!
It’s a little late, since I would have rather this happen when I was still going with my Lulu hate, but whatever.
lol. Loser/stalker scientist is such a loser that he can’t even stand up to another anime-original character. And this character is supposed to be a puppet of Easter too (lolz).
Is this maybe the small difference between created by Peach-Pit and complete worthlessness?
Ah. I guess you could call this my one complaint about the episode. A scene with Ikuto that really furthered someone else’s story more than his own (and it was Lulu too!). I am not amused by this at all. Real characters cannot further filler character’s story unless it’s by a peptalk (and Ikuto doesn’t do that so he should further anyone’s story ever).
But lol. Easter needs to stop leaving this embryo crap to teenagers and preteens. None of them have the slightest intention of handing it over to Easter.
Note to Easter: Kids and Teenagers are rebellious. They also have actual wishes and dreams and would therefore want the embryo. Please have some common sense, ‘kay?
But ah. Again. Scenes like this tear me in two. Part of me goes, “Oh…poor Ikuto” and the unreasonable fangirl in me goes, “Hahahaha! Get in that bed nao!”
…I think Doki stupidity has warped my personality.
Oh Nagihiko you’re so cool! Bossing everyone around. Of course he still has a 99% right record which is better than anyone else, so he’s the best one for the job (I would have liked to see Rima being stubborn again though…).
During this part I was like, “Oh they have Rima doing the speech again…um why?” because I totally forgot about those fillers parts (lol, they barely take up any time anyway). But yeah, Rima was the one teaching them and stuff so it fits. Plus, it’s always nice to see someone else bust out their mahou shoujo speech (I like it when Utau does it too~).
Dear Satelight…please make Amulet Heart go away already. I see enough of her in the manga now too. Also, every time she appears it ruins your possible attempts at making Amu seem like she’s growing up.
…I’ll let other people figure that out, but it’s pretty obvious in that picture.
lol Lulu can’t get the embryo. Fail.
Ah…Lulu. Hurry up and just have your final battle and become good. Everyone except you knows that you aren’t going to succeed.
HAHAHAHA! SNOW~! (Sorry, but every little sign made me happy)
Oh yes Amu. You go right ahead and wonder all you want about what your fortune could possibly mean. You will soon regret that carefree attitude about it though.
*cue “catboy in my bed” sound effects*
lol. Amu is so slow. You’d think someone would notice something like a teenage boy laying in their bed right away (well she did in the manga…).
*more catboy in a bed sound effects*
Ah…that was so much fun. I think I’m pretty much settled on Shugo Chara fulfillment for two weeks.
It’s kind of a shame that they gave it away on the preview. If I had watched the episode without knowing anything it would have been another prime opportunity for a heart-attack. But nooo.
Of course, you have to understand why they did it. They needed to make sure that everyone heard about it so that the pretty much 70% Amuto fan majority would watch it (Ikuto’s the second most popular character in all the popularity polls too, you know).
Ehehe~ Yeah~ I think I can start looking forward to Shugo Chara every week again. At this point I’m either guaranteed plot or at least some Amu and Ikuto interaction. Both make me happy.
Kids play in the snow, blah, blah, blah (oddly enough no filler character in sigh though).
More importantly, we get more of this:
Beds are really great, you know?
Of course, for this episode everyone will just have to be good and wait two weeks because Shugo Chara isn’t airing next week. No manga either, so the more impatient fangirls will just have to…suffer I guess? (Ooo and if you only wait for fansubs it’s even tougher because the fansubbers all stopped and unless you have the subscription to CR, you don’t get to watch it for a week)
…I feel somewhat mean because I’m kind of happy saying all that. Of course, I feel sorry for the nice fangirls, but you stupid ones will just have to suffer. Muahahaha!
Have no idea what to do as a poll…Um…I think I didn’t do one last week either. ^_^;
Oh actually I have the perfect one.
Since it’s my blog though, I think I know what three answers are going to be chosen the most though.
