Amagami SS ep 22, Tsukasa arc part II – Phase Shift

(If you’re reading this ghostlightning, I did just make a SEED reference. Your haterade brought it out in me!) Continuing on from the cliffhanger ending last week the second Tsukasa arc episode changes the tone a bit. While it’s probably a more sustainable way to run an arc, it did feel a little weird seeing Tsukasa go from throat-hold to confused tsun tsun like that. So the trajectory of this arc (heh) is now a bit up in the air (multi-pun!) for next week to decide.

I personally can’t get enough of Tsukasa’s Haman face.

A slip of the hand onto Tsukasa’s chest was what broke the ice, and at the shrine where she talked to Junichi later was where the pace changed. I’m of two minds on this. On the one hand we had some high drama and sinister vibes going on before and I was really liking that. Though I suppose it could be hard to keep that level of tension going and still be a light romance series, not to mention how Amagami was never that heavy with the drama. In any case we’ve now got something a little more low key as Tsukasa is shown to be fallible in misunderstanding what Junichi wrote but still works him like a dog and is generally controlling in a non-tie-grabbing manner now. Her moment of fake tears over Junichi touching her chest to get him to repeat the Tsukasa Loyalty Oath was priceless.  Though left out of this was what Tsukasa wrote that had her so concerned about Junichi reading. That could be a source of future drama when it inevitably resurfaces.

You will cooperate with the stateTsukasa for the good of the Tsukasa and your own survival. Cooperation will be rewarded. Resistance will be punished. You will cooperate with the Tsukasa…

Like the ending to Ookami Kakushi…

“What do you think you’re doing Junichi?” Now do your best Chinese gangster “hhhhhuuuuuhhhhhh?”

Now that Junichi’s a subordinate member of the Founder’s Festival Revolutionary Command Council his action reflect back on his master. And thus another layer of control is introduced. But in keeping with the less serious tone of this episode, a lot of this becomes mostly normal school interactions between a controlling, perception-conscious Tsukasa and the new Junichi mark VI who just seems to enjoy being around Tsukasa. She’s even been warming to him a bit, not flipping out too hard when he comes to visit her when she’s sick. The more relaxed pace of this episode generally and the visit specifically have been differentiating Junichi mk VI from the others. This Junichi seems more willing to take things in stride and even enjoy playing a back-and-forth game between Tsukasa’s assertiveness and his easygoing manner. Though I do suspect that Tsukasa might come to see this as deceit if word of Junichi and Umehara’s ‘contest’ to have a girlfriend first. Not that the two guys really meant it as it was spur-of-the-moment and meant to cheer up a broken hearted Junichi. But if Umehara or Kaoru run their mouth about it even jokingly, Junichi might not even know what hit him. But for the moment things are looking up when Junichi carries Tsukasa after a stray dog pees on her shoe. Why that requires a carry I don’t know, but it was an excuse for some skinship.

Got it bad, got it bad, got it bad…

Ah Kaoru, I kinda miss your arc. Just wish it was executed a bit better.

Why yes, Tsukasa will perform the marriage ceremony for you and Haruka at the Founder’s Festival.

Ride! Ride! Ride! Thunder! Thunder! Thunderhorse!

The final element of this episode is the increased presence of Yukari. Tsukasa’s sister certainly isn’t the brightest bulb in the box, but at least she seems nice. She’d probably get along well with Haruka given their shared love of dogs too. But in this it still remains to be seen what sort of role she plays in Tsukasa’s life. Her younger sister obviously doesn’t seem to care for her much, but she is shown taking care of things around the house. Perhaps this is another case of Anime Parents Syndrome since we have yet to see either of Tsukasa’s parents. It could be that Yukari holds the house together but for whatever reason Tsukasa resents her for it, or is just too spoiled to appreciate it. Yeah, having a sister like Yukari might be embarrassing at times, but she certainly could have done worse. If I had to guess I’d say that it’s not some complicated trauma or complex or anything, and that it’s just Tsukasa being immature about having an airhead for a sister. I like Tsukasa, but she does seem more than a bit shallow oftentimes.

Maybe she’s just tsundere for her onee-sama?

    My God…. Yukari Airhead Level beyond Help, I feel bad for Yukari when Tsukasa Give her Cold attitude But I Still dont know what circumstances between those two and the reason tsukasa dislike her sister.
    hmm… I cant wait for hibiki to join miss santa Contest and It will be look Delicious

    • Posted December 11, 2010 at 9:42 pm | Permalink

      Yeah, I’m interested in finding out the background between Yukari and Tsukasa too. I still don’t have any really solid evidence for any particular theory, just guesses.

      A Hibiki and Haruka pair entering the Miss Santa contest would be full of win.

    Judging by the direction so far, it looks like something big might happen next episode (or maybe I just want something to happen). Definitely some interesting/playful character interactions going on that I hope to see more of. As far as Tsukasa’s sister goes, I’m pretty sure it’s along the lines of what you said with her being immature about having an airhead for a sister except I’d think that its more because of how her character is opposite to Tsukasa’s in a lot of ways. Didn’t quite understand how getting pissed on warranted the carry either, but if I had to guess she probably didn’t want to walk barefoot ( I’m pretty sure she took off her shoe + sock when Junichi found her ). Either way, it set up some pretty nice dialogue so I’m not complaining. I don’t think the unseen notes in Tsukasa’s planner will have a future role in the arc since it seemed to me that it’s main purpose was to bring out the dark ( for lack of a better word ) side of Tsukasa that otherwise wouldn’t have been seen.

      My comments are out of date now that the next episode is out. Sorry for the delay, I’ve been quite busy over the last week and out of town for much of it.

      You were definitely right about big developments in the next episode, and on the book as it stands at the moment. Though I’d still like to know what was in the book that caused her initial reaction.

    Her moment of fake tears over Junichi touching her chest to get him to repeat the Tsukasa Loyalty Oath was priceless.

    This. Especially as she repeats the lines through her hands when he forgets them. All as if nothing happened. That was too rich.

    Why that requires a carry I don’t know, but it was an excuse for some skinship.

    Yeah, that was… awkward. You can’t just walk around with one bare foot? lol

    Got it bad, got it bad, got it bad…

    Junichi and me both~

    It could be that putting up convenient facades runs in the family and Yukari also puts up a facade of her own, playing dumb and acting generally carefree. I find that a little bit hard to believe though, so I’m guessing Tsukasa resents her older sister for being so carefree and whimsical. Tsukasa’s there breaking her back trying her best to be a model student and get all these achievements and get into a great high school and eventually college, while her older sister is just kinda floating through life. Along those lines, Yukari might just be naturally gifted and not need to exert even a fraction of the effort Tsukasa does in order to just cruise right through school, winning people over and staying at the top of her class, which would also earn her Tsukasa’s resentment if I’m reading Tsukasa right. But like you, I’m betting Tsukasa is just shallow enough to think that having an older sister whose head always seems to be in the clouds is a bad thing. I suppose time will tell.

    • Posted December 11, 2010 at 9:46 pm | Permalink

      Yeah, still getting that resentment angle from Tsukasa even in the next episode too, even if there wasn’t any direct connection to Yukari in the third part of the arc. I’m guessing (hoping?) that that will get expounded upon later in the arc. And with one or two episodes remaining depending on what they do with the mystery 25th episode, there’s plenty of time for it either way.

    good writeup on this one, really enjoyed it! ;-)

    OFFTOPIC: & who the heck is that ghostlightning for h8ing Gundam SEED? SEED is the best. :-)

    ermm…in anycase, 2 episodes to go. I hope this ends just like in the manga! woo~ :-)

      Heh, ghostlightning has been watching it lately and definitely not liking it. It’s a shame that there’s so much hate for SEED among the older Gundam viewers, in my opinion it’s definitely the best AU Gundam series by a long shot.

      Not sure if there’s two or three episodes after this one. I still haven’t heard anything about whether the 25th episode is going to be something different or a continuation of the Tsukasa arc. I guess we’ll see (I’d like it to be another Tsukasa arc episode myself.)

  5. Posted December 7, 2010 at 7:02 am | Permalink

    It’s plain to see that Tsukasa has incredible envy for her elder, and Yukari is all the things Tsukasa wants to be.

    But, on the other hand, Tsukasa ought to be kind of happy to have an airhead of an elder sister; I would. In the future, Tsukasa can get great grades and go to a fancy college, and possibly even flaunt said grades to her sister.

    • Posted December 11, 2010 at 9:50 pm | Permalink

      But would Yukari even care if Tsukasa tried to flaunt her grades? She’d probably just say “that’s great!” and be all happy about it, frustrating Tsukasa even more, heh.

    We are doomed… I thought the only character in the entire series that can gave Tsukasa a true fight in a “clash of the titans” like-scene was Hibiki.

    I like Yukari, I like her very much despite her being an idiot, stupid, dumb and dumber, clueless, airhead. It’s weird, I think it’s a cute gesture to insult her… weeeeiiiird.

    Ah yes! for “the lonely” this is a sweet gift, made my day:

      Nice, thanks for the link to the Kaoru manga. I intend to read that and the Rihoko manga over winter break.

      Haha, had to make a general Hong Kong gangster movie reference there and I figured Young and Dangerous would be the best one to look up. Great series if you like HK gangster dramas. It follows the characters from being kids (in a prequel movie) through their lives over a long period of time. Very fun.

    This Junichi seems to be a sort of White Knight. I don’t know if that’s just his personality, or an overcompensation for being a lazy sack of crap before. As Tsukasa points out, a normal person would stay as far away from her as possible (which in Junichi’s case isn’t very far, but still), but he goes and helps her out, even carrying her a few yards so she could wash her feet. There’s only really two types of guys that would do that: the white knight, and the lovestruck doormat; and Junichi isn’t the latter (for that, see the Haruka arc). Junichi is pretty dumb, but he would have to be completely retarded to not realize that Tsukasa is a self-possessed bitch of the highest order – she all but told him in those words.

    As for Tsukasa, she’s an AMAZING actor. Able to put up the Little Miss Perfect front, constantly, probably for years now, without slipping once – and then going full-crazy when she thought the gig was up (but only when she knew it was safe). She can convincingly cry on demand. She has a wide vocal range.

    She might be a terrible person, but she works hard, heh. She seems to be a mini mob boss – willing to do whatever it takes to achieve her goals. Even if it involves being nice to everybody, when she isn’t a nice person at all.

    I don’t get why 4chan likes Tsukasa so much. She’s pretty much the epitome of what they don’t like about women: two-faced, manipulative, controlling, selfish, shallow, mean – and she doesn’t have the looks to make up for it (the only named girl less attractive than her is poor, plain Keiko). But they also thought the Ai arc was the best so far, so yah.

    And on a completely separate note, the animation’s come a long way since the beginning. I was just going through the first ep of the Kaoru arc (to look up Keiko’s name), and it didn’t look like they quite had all the character animation down pat at that point. Junichi looked a lot more generic, and in general the art was less defined.

      I don’t visit 4chan but your input about rooting for Tsukasa despite her being the epitome of what men hate about women was rather interesting. My opinion about that would be, perhaps the fanboys enjoy seeing their fellow man Junichi get whipped and suddenly turn the tables on Tsukasa. The fact that she is being outdone (by none other than the airhead Junichi) means that she is vulnerable despite her intensely strong armor. You listed some great things about her abilities to conceal her real self and yet Junichi is able to pierce that armor without any force. It would be a bit weird for fanboys to be fans of Junichi but it would be perfectly normal to support his ability to handle Tsukasa. And thus Tsukasa is their favorite girl because of this. He’s doing nothing but being himself and yet he’s still able to attract Tsukasa’s attention in a positive light. Would men want that kind of woman? An evil female who can be tamed from just being yourself? Just an opinion. :)

      It’s funny I never thought Tsukasa as being unattractive. But she does have a more common look. It’s always the inconspicuous looking ones that need to be watched. Who knows what hidden personality Keiko has.

      • Posted December 9, 2010 at 2:21 pm | Permalink

        It’s not that Tsukasa is unattractive, it’s just that she’s the least attractive of the main girls. She has the plainest design of all the girls. Not that it’s bad at all in any way, it just doesn’t stand out. She looks like what an anime class rep should look like. That’s probably purposeful. Poor Keiko’s the “ugly” one of the show (I think that might be a reason she hangs out with Kaoru, as we see in the next episode) – and she’s a 7/10.

    • Posted December 11, 2010 at 10:14 pm | Permalink

      Didn’t know that 4chan was such a fan of Tsukasa. Though just to point it out, her popularity vis a vis the other girls may have something to do with how well written her arc has been. I’d think that the middle arc girls might have more fans if their arcs were as well done as this one.

      I don’t see anything odd about liking Tsukasa. 4chan’s skewed views on women aside (one more reason I don’t frequent the place) I don’t think it takes a ‘white knight’ or ‘doormat’ personality to like her. This iteration of Junichi started out just liking spending time with her and then developed feelings. He has a lot of patience, but that doesn’t mean that he’s out to ‘save’ her nor just be a doormat. Sometimes one just has to have patience and mix that with offering what help one can, a sentiment I can sympathize with. If Junichi loves her then it’s just a matter of that. She’s not the type to have him take over and do things for her, but neither is she going to form a relationship without him pulling his weight in joint endeavors. I think that there’s a main characteristic that the other sees and helps complete them. For Junichi it’s Tsukasa’s drive and energy and for Tsukasa it’s Junichi’s willingness to stand alongside (but not in front of or behind) her.

      Also, matter of perspective and all but I think Tsukasa is one of the best looking of the arc girls (behind Kaoru.)

    Ugh…why does this arc have to make me opinionated…? I seem to be one of the few people who doesn’t view Tsukasa to be a ‘bad’ or ‘terrible’ person. Perhaps this is because I have the same personality type/world view. I don’t see the problem with managing others’ impression of you. It is the way to ensure success when aiming for a high-level career track. You can’t be honest about everything you think or feel. I have a feeling (could be VERY wrong of course since anime tends not to be realistic in that morals are generally portrayed in black and white rather than the shades of grey the real world uses) that she has become very self-conscious about that side of her. This would be supported by the gundam-painting scene where Junichi remarks on how well she looks out for herself, and she snaps very quickly back asking why that’s a problem. Maybe she’s been ostracized and shunned by people in the past who took her image-management for plain dishonesty.

    I can also really identify with her sentiments of “this is the first time I’ve been curious about someone”. Fact is that when your intellect and interests go beyond what’s “normal”, a lot of people are rather boring to talk to. Being mean to them or outwardly looking down on them would be wrong so you put up a nice exterior. I don’t see the problem. Where it could become a problem, which perhaps it has for Tsukasa, is when you have been rejected for your different outlook on life (especially if this happens relatively early in life before strength of convictions develops) and start to become somewhat of a misanthrope, which is what I think has happened to her judging by what’s been presented so far.

    P.S. – “Like the ending to Ookami Kakushi…” FULLY AGREED, and IMO the carrying her to the basin scene was very gentlemanly. While she of course could walk over herself, helping her not get her foot dirty is just being nice. Which is the fastest way to get someone who thinks everyone is only out for their own interests to be intrigued by you.

    • Posted December 9, 2010 at 2:09 pm | Permalink

      It’s not the fact that she’s hiding her bad points in public – that’s what separates a civilized person from a boor – it’s that her bad points are pretty much ALL her points. That she can cover them up so well is something to commend, as otherwise she probably couldn’t function.

        It seems we have a fundamental flaw in discourse. I just can’t really see anything so far (other than grabbing J6 by the tie) that could qualify her as a bad person. Even after he knows her secret she’s still quite nice and normal with him, even when no one else is around; which makes me think she’s really a nice person at her core. I’d have to see her actually do something bad before I could go ahead with the “bad” designation. I have a feeling it’s because you care about intention beyond actual action? As in, it doesn’t matter if you’re a good person on the outside, if you dislike most other people you’re a bad person no matter what? If so, I can’t get there in principle. No matter what someone is thinking, if they do what’s “right” on the outside, they’re a good person in my book.

        • Posted December 11, 2010 at 10:21 pm | Permalink

          For as much as I like to play up the ‘evil’ stuff for fun when Tsukasa gets angry, she really isn’t a bad person. She just overreacts. I’d say that the difference between her and a truly bad person is in how she uses her talent. Watching Kuragehime with people on Skype has brought up a lot of conversations about Inari, a character who uses her looks, blackmail, and sex to achieve her business goals. I think she’s the perfect contrast to Tsukasa. Both of them can play with others’ expectations and put on different faces, but there’s a big difference. Tsukasa isn’t harming anyone in what she does, concentrating on her image and on the school festival. Inari on the other hand doesn’t care who she harms and what’s more, has absolutely no lines that she won’t cross even if they’re her own (like sleeping around.)

          Tsukasa might not be nice to everyone, but it’s not like one has to be. But she isn’t harming anyone in what she does and I feel that that is what matters when trying to use (admittedly broad and vague) terms like ‘good’ and ‘bad.’

    The marriage request comment for Hibiki and Haruka was great! Seeing Hibiki look so flustered makes me wish Hibiki had her own arc, where she’s the main character :P

    The feeling I get from Yukari is that she seems like a kind girl, but sounds a little carefree about what goes on. However, and I don’t mean to be mean or offensive, but it almost made me think she had some sort of mental disorder. Her isolation from the house made me think that she wasn’t doing any chores or homework. She tried to help Tsukasa by giving her a sports drink, which is a kind and reasonable gesture since typically sports drinks are a good remedy for someone who is ill. But she didn’t put it away or refrigerate it or even leave it with Tsukasa. Instead she’s seen using it to attract a stray dog outside. I mean her actions seemed a little …off…to me.

    In a way it reminded me of a toned down Yui from K-on: Seems to say or do strange things out of the norm; Is seldom seen doing anything productive (minus the short shopping trip in the first ep). General concern for her sister as she does seem to love her; But in this case, her imouto isn’t so forgiving. In fact it sounds like Yukari is more of a burden and a responsibility than a sibling to Tsukasa. This leads me to believe that Yukari isn’t all there in her mind.

    Tsukasa might be feeling pressure from her parents to succeed in some way and do something with her life since one of their children is unable to do so or does not want to. Tsukasa is set on getting good grades, reputation and a healthy resume to go to college. The motivation kind of fits. However this kind of theory doesn’t make me think Junichi would be of any use to help her with this kind of problem.

    In any case, the series may not cover that aspect of Tsukasa’s life since it seems rather complex (or I’m making the situation more complex than it is), but i think it would be an opportunity for Junichi to help Tsukasa in some way. This goes back to the “White Knight” that TheRoyalFamily mentioned.

      To continue on the Yukari issue, a quote of something someone mentioned from another forum:

      [quote]I’m guessing she’s a Special Needs child and Tsukasa can’t deal with it. It’s something that she couldn’t bear to have known to her schoolmates. Remember how Tsukasa asked her sister what she was doing out in the the last episode and hustled her away? Mental disability has a major stigma, it seems, in Japan. Much worse than the US.[/quote]

      Actually, that makes quite a bit of sense.

      Sister is a bit.. ‘slow’? In her own world. Not too focused. Cute, but potentially problematic, and with the notable stigma hovering over her if that really is the case.

      Probability that it’s genetic. Tsukasa is probably also on the low end of average intelligence. Not quite as far gone as her sister, but not good enough that schoolwork would be easy for her.

      She works extra hard to cover it up, and to compensate for it. The Math II answer book is “for dummies” (in the fansub I saw; can’t verify if that’s actually what it says). Pushes very hard to give everyone else the impression that she’s ‘perfect’ so that it never even crosses their mind that there might be more notable deficiencies.

      Notebook: schedule, meticulously maintained. Not simply because of an O/C personality, but to ensure that she never lets herself slip. Everything is already planned out, she knows what needs to be done and when, so she can just consult the notebook to keep herself on track and not let anyone else find out the truth.

      She doesn’t want to be associated with her sister (correlary: she doesn’t want to be around her sister, and prefers doing extra work at school rather than going home). She’s seen her sister as she grew up, how she behaved and how she was treated, and she doesn’t want to end up like that. For her to have an actual future, she needs to be better, and to ensure it she focuses on being completely perfect, so that no one could possibly doubt or gainsay her.

      /speculation

      • Posted December 11, 2010 at 10:29 pm | Permalink

        I dunno, that still doesn’t seem quite right to me. Though we both equally have a chance of being right at this stage. Though I definitely don’t think that Tsukasa is low-average intelligence. The way she runs things and her conversations with Junichi where she lets her guard down don’t seem to point to anything but at least slightly above average intelligence, if not high IQ.

    • Posted December 11, 2010 at 10:27 pm | Permalink

      While there’s not much evidence to go on, I’m still thinking that Tsukasa’s relationship with Yukari might have something to do with their parents. Specifically the lack thereof. Granted, parents in anime are often not around but the way that they’re not even mentioned in the sisters’ interactions makes me think that they’re dead or something. Yukari seems to be taking care of things, buying groceries and taking care of Tsukasa after she collapsed. She’s not the brightest bulb in the box but she does try. And I think Tsukasa resents her a bit for it since Yukari is nominally in charge while Tsukasa is not adjusting well to her airheaded sister being the head of the house. Just my guesses though.

    Japanese have a real…. thing about feet. They’re considered dirty. That’s why shoes in the house is absolutely taboo. That’s why all high schools have the student put on different shoes for wearing around school than on the street. Why you have to wear slippers in someone’s house. Why you have to wear different gym shoes for the gym.

    I got totally reamed once for nudging someone’s jacket out of the way during a volleyball game with my foot once when I lived in Japan. Feet have a lot of symbolic cultural meaning regarding purity and uncleanliness.

    So when Tsukasa’s shoe and sock get pee’d on and she can’t wear them, she’s put in a bit of a cultural dilemma. Walking around outside barefoot is something considered a bit unclean in Japan. Like you are almost ritually impurifying your foot. So Junichi’s offer to carry her wasn’t quite so weird as you’d think. At least, not as weird as it would be here in the US.

      Thanks a bunch for that bit of information, helps explain a lot. I was always confused as to why they wore different shoes for school and such, didn’t think it would be something rooted in culture though.

    • Posted December 11, 2010 at 10:36 pm | Permalink

      Well I understand that having lived their for a year (and adopting the ‘no shoes’ rule in my apartment after returning. It just makes sense), but I still feel doubtful about that in this case. If her foot was already dirty it gives her an out since she’s intending to clean it anyway once she gets to a hose or wash basin.

    LOL Phase Shift – actually I was thinking of the Mirage Colloid stealth system when Tsukasa uncloaked to begin her reign of tsun-terror on Junichi.

    Why does everyone take Yukari’s airheadedness for granted? Given how we’ve taken Tsukasa’s Honor Student Perfect Class Representative image at face value thus far, Yukari could be hiding a side that is far more scary than anything Tsukasa could ever manage! /jk

    I would have gone with Henshin, Tsukasa just transformed on Junichi and kicked his ass… figuratively of course. If only it were as EPIC and WINSOME as Alphard vs Canaan in women’s bathroom, still Tsukasa should have used a blood choke on him you know for what happened to Rihoko.

    Yes I do wish to see Hibiki and Haruka wed and live happily ever after, I eagerly await to go GORGEOUS DELICIOUS YAKKK DECULTCHA at what ever get up Haruka manages to put on Hibiki. Still let’s hope there is more Miya in the remaining eps as I miss her dearly.

      Miya will have her own BD/DVD extra arc, so worry not comrade. Miya had something to add to the story in pretty much all the arcs, but I’m not sure I see her place in this one. Perhaps we’ll see some of her during the festival though.
