The MPRE is over! Yay! Anyways, in the anime world there was more delicious Ami story this week that really starts to flesh out her character. They did rush some of however, when compared to the novels. It’s good, but it lacks some of the impact that the scenes had in the novels. Oh well, she still looks smokin’.
As I mentioned last week, Ami does get some of her comeuppance, albeit a shortened version. Not to beat a dead horse, but they made this shorter and less serious than the source material. But they also made sure to keep the tie-ins with the other parts of the episode. Ami is gaining weight because of the stress of the stalker and the poor food she’s been forced to eat as a result of her circumstances.
One of the many great faces of Ami this episode
And of course, he has to put the trash can back. Too funny.
Note to self, NEVER become Taiga’s enemy
This scene was pretty well done, I liked how they showed the rapidfire shifts in her personality throughout. Once again I’d like to compliment Ami’s seiyuu, Eri Kitamura, on the job she has done voicing her. And while the fake Ami is pretty cute/moe, I rather enjoy the real Ami because the conflicts she has with Taiga drive a lot of the humor.
Frankly, he was a pretty pathetic stalker, and I don’t think they spent enough time with the stalker material. It seemed rather sudden and had less of an impact on your impression of Ami’s character. I suppose that in an anime they end up having to shorten some of the characters’ development, I just wish they didn’t short Ami’s -_-
Love me! Aahhhhhhh moeeeeeee! Ahem. In the end, I don’t know whether Ami will actually fall for Ryuuji. She’s pulling his leg in this scene, but you never know later on with these shows. In harem shows at least, all females automatically and unconditionally love the main guy, but this show isn’t really a harem show. Will be interesting to see either way, but since this is an adaptation of an ongoing source material, don’t count on on anything being resolved in the end. We’ll just have to hope the guys translating the novels go quickly =)
Swimsuit shopping, pools, and fake breasts, oh my. Interestingly enough, the novel material for next episode just got translated and it should be a fun ride. Mmmm, Ami in a swimsuit…
