Starting with Hyouka because I’M CURIOUS!
This episode continues the Sekitani Jun legacy: Sekitani Jun wasn’t a hero, he was a sacrifice. He was sacrificed because of the cowardice of the student body, he was sacrificed because he was unluckily to be chosen to lead the student movement. The entire episode fully explains what exactly happened during that period of time via the school librarian teacher who was a student during that period. As for Chitanda’s uncle’s message, it was a lame pun on Hyouka: Hyouka means ice cream in English, and a pun on ice cream would be the popular phrase that uses the word scream. “I scream”. Sekitani Jun was unable to justify himself, because of the silence of the student body that time, he was unable to voice out because he wasn’t strong enough to just scream at the entire student body for making him take all the blame, and because of that he decided to leave his message down through the Anthologies of the Classics Club. “Hyouka”. Well now that the main story arc is over, I’ll be expecting some fun-making and less serious-toned stories, even if they’re about Houtarou thinking about his way of life.
In the preview, it looks like we get some Chitanda pout! YAY!
Next: Nazo no Kanojo X
This week, we see that aside from being ninja-fast with her scissors, she’s also ninja fast with her Golden Legs. So fast that she’s managed match the track team’s ace’s speed, losing only by mere milliseconds. When invited to join the Track Team, Urabe refuses because she wants to walk home with Tsubaki and even says that its more fun to walk home with him. DAMMIT TSUBAKI YOU SO LUCKY! Well, even though Urabe doesn’t express her feelings much, everytime Tsubaki get a taste of her drool, he gets a very vivid and unexplainable feeling, that which is equal to what Urabe feels.
What really impressed me though, was that Tsubaki actually agreed and encouraged Urabe to join the Track Team, despite knowing that he’ll lose the time he gets to spend with her. That alone is +respect points for him. Even though he really wanted to have Urabe all to himself, he’s actually mature enough to think about others and not just about himself, this guy is a really great boyfriend.
Next: Tasogare Otome X Amnesia
I can’t post this week’s screenshot because its a spoiler. So I’ll post a link instead. Here. More is revealed about Yuuko’s past this episode, along with scary revelations. This week’s ED is special, so make sure you don’t skip it. Yuuko is Yuuko… Right? The bugging question would be: Why does she have amnesia? If Kirie did see the horrifying ghost, and yet Yuuko herself is a separate entity, then who is the shadow? Why does it only appear when Yuuko isn’t around? Why only to Kirie previously? Why? This anime is starting on the track to its real storyline, along with everything slowly getting explained. I’m getting so much goosebumps just watching and typing this, this is really a good anime.
Next: The adventures of a baker and his harem.
This week, we have a ice-cold tsundere making an appearance. Of course, it wouldn’t be tsundere without a tsundere-ish voice right?! Kugumiya Rie’s voice is pretty much recognizable anywhere, unless she’s not speaking in her tsundere voice. We see the sudden appearance of a cute little flying demon thing who speaks in a really polite tone and is REALLY cute. He’s the familiar of the witch Melty, who’s attempting to create the ULTIMATE ICE CREAM! Why does this anime always make me hungry?
This scene touched me so much that I almost cried, but couldn’t because I was busy smiling like an idiot. Sorbet really is the most awesome familiar you can ask for. He’s kind, thinks of his master and so butler-ish. Did I mention he’s cute? The way he speaks is really cute too!
Section 2: Daily log of intern student (19 Days to freedom)
Starting from today, I will countdown to the day I’m free from internship, hopefully it will also remind me of my impending
doom 3000-word final report.
Started the day cleaning chicken and guinea pigs, proceeded down to draw blood from pigs. I think I’m getting good at it. Better than the vet at least. After lunch we drew blood from the guinea pig and the chicken, I felt that the vet did fine, but could have been better. A LOT better. K maybe he wasn’t so fine, but at least he got the job done. After drawing blood, I proceeded to prepare for weaning some piglets. Finished just in time for a shower before going home.
