This episode had a dreadful lack of Mariya, replaced by the often annoying antics of Ryuuken. And then there’s Shaft, who decided to really lay the photoshop filters and other random crap on thick throughout most of the episode. However…Mariya was wearing a maid uniform. OH YES.
I don’t know if I can imagine many better ways to wake up in the morning then by a beautiful blonde maid. Now the problem would arise if said maid was sporting morning wood. Kind of scary when you really think about it.
Has anyone actually eaten this stuff before?
Who needs detailed backgrounds when you can put random ass colors! I’m sure it saves them quite a bit on the budget and it makes them look “artsy” as well!
There’s only so much I can handle of these rather silly antics. The joke got old very quickly and I was ready to move on to something else. Yes, I suppose we needed to give Ryuuken her own episode, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to be head over heels for it.
Someone made an animated .gif of this and posted it on /a/, but I forgot to save it =(
I can think of a few things
This episode came in as the weakest so far, mainly because I found most of it lacked humor. Ryuuken’s character doesn’t particularly interest me aside from being an occasionally mentioned side character, and we had to sacrifice precious Mariya airtime for it. I’d look forward to next week if the previews actually meant something I could understand. Entry was a bit short this week, been pretty busy. As a side note, my blogging of Toradora is on hold for now due to the fact I’m losing interest in it rapidly.
Crusader’s Adoration of Kanako
I think waking up to this would have been just as good as meido Mariya, after all quantity has a quality all it’s own.
Oh wow, chopsticks.
Such a pity that Kanako’s harem was not so easily established, though at least I can enjoy Kanako’s fantasies as Hosaka seems to have gotten less ribald as of late. I reject Mariya’s reality and substitute Kanako’s. BEST HOT POT EVAR. Well despite Kanako’s fervent wishes to the contrary her harem has not formed yet, Kiri-san is still ignorant of how girls can and do date, while Ryuuken-sama has some personal issues she needs help with. Nevertheless I remain adamant and hopeful that Kanako can help them both out and with their loyalty and affection the proper way. As for Kanako’s Chihiro cosplay, it was sad that she took a beating, but I suspect the blood of meltrans also flows within Kanako’s veins as her recovery was swift. At least Kanako got to spend the night with Ryuuken-sama and got Kiri-san to confess again. Good to see that Kanako did not get too mopey over it. I am sure her yuri lust will help bring Ryuuken-sama and Kiri-san back into the fold.
Women momen of course Ryuuken-sama.
Kiri-san I reject your reality…
…and replace it with Kanako’s.
Kiri-san might be hawt for teacher too, but I am sure her tune will change eventually…Ryuuken-sama could use a friend and I am sure Kanako could fill that role easily enough, since ther rest of the school seems to belong to the Ryuuken-sama fan club. Even if I am taking this whole out of context I am sure Kiri-san is simply lying about doing things out of obligation, it certainly seemed like she was defending her right to Kanako to Ryuuken-sama but time will tell. Mariya got some extra screen time and as you can plainly see meido Mariya has Calawain terribly confused. Gotta love how Kanako was ready to tap that too before she remembered that Mariya is a boy. Say what you will about Kanako, but she certainly has some real nice fantasies in that yuri filled head of hers. I like Ryuuken-sama’s kendo outfit quite a bit and look forward to the day when Ryuuken-sama and Kanako can spend the night alone. Honoka still has more plans though with any luck it will force Kiri-san to take drastic measures to help Kanako-out, like a kiss, or perhaps going even farther…like something Kanako cannot tell her mother in heaven. I hope Kanako tries to help out Kiri-san and Ryuuken-sama out since she could BE FRIENDLY with them and build her yuri harem the proper way. I have to hand it to Shaft though since they are giving me plenty to be happy about with Kanako’s fantasies, though Calawain is too hung up on Mariya. I know his type he’s just torturing his admirers with his absence, giving them a tease here and there. Mariya got more screen time this time around, but for Calawain who is rapidly becoming broken beyoind repair (as opposed to me) it will never be enough. Again so long as we get Kanako’s Fantasies I will be content. Mariya is making plenty of threats about sticking it in, but since these threats have all been hollow I suspect that Mariya might have already under gone partial gender reassingment.
Waking up to this face every morning would make me a happy man.
Chihiro-chan is that you?
I forgot what happened but I assume that Kiri-san just propsed a three-some.
Jesus will make an exception for yuri.
It’s so hypnotic… (thanks to chronomeister)
