Ah finally, the really good stuff begins. I know you’ll all be surprised that Ami-chan is a new transfer student who happens to be in the same class as everyone else! Shocking!
Yes, this will do nicely. They really faked me out last week with Sumire and her blue hair. Really, there are too many blue haired characters in this show, it’s spreading like some sort of illness. So far Eri Kitamura’s voicing of her is top notch, catching both sides of her personality well.
This is the Taiga we all know and love, having the wonderful ability to just not give a shit about other people, especially really irritating ones who talk down to her.
Oh that has to hurt. Now, for those of you who have not read the novels, you may be wondering why the hell I’d enjoy Ami’s character, which is a valid question. But don’t worry, the plot changes things quite a bit soon, assuming the adaptation stays true. That being said, she’s definitely going to get some of her comeuppance next episode judging by the preview (if the scene is what I think it is).
One of the most entertaining parts of the novels so far has been the relationship/combat between Ami and Taiga. I’m liking how they are introducing Ami so far, putting enough of the novel material in there (from what I remember) to lay a good foundation. I will apologize that this entry is a bit short and lacking on amazing insights, but this is a rough week with the MPRE coming up on Saturday.
