Posted by psgels on 2 September 2007 with categories: Les Miserables - Shoujo Cosette


Now that the characters have received a healthy dose of attention, it’s now finally time to develop the plot and setting some more. Both Thenardier (who has escaped from prison) as les Amis (what are they trying to do, actually? Start a revolution for equal rights? I failed to pick up the exact details for this, unfortunately) have started getting active again, and meanwhile, Javert is still searching for his Jean.

Gavroche surprised me when he suddenly rescued his father. The scene could have been build up a bit better, as we see no real signs of him, planning to do anything about what he heard from Montparnasse, but it was definitely interesting to see him do something nice for Thenardier. He’s beginning to become something like a Jean II, with the two kids he’s taken care of. Are they really his own brothers? Were they born once Cosette left, or something?

Anyway, there was one theme that was heavily present in this episode: poverty. Cosette sees people getting sick, and living with absolutely no money, Gavroche had no money to begin with, and I assume that les Amis are also acting against poverty. And let’s not forget Eponine, who unfortunately appeared in only one short scene this episode.

The next big thing that’s coming is probably Thenardier, finding out about Jean’s and Cosette’s location. He came really close this episode, and out of all possible houses, he picked Jean’s house to go and rob.

    I’ve been super behind lately. Probly gonna start watching again once they get to the super spoiler part. With the Amis and Marius. Yeah.

    *doesn’t wanna spoil…*

    I need to stop neglecting my shows, even if it is for the sake of resting and school-related crap. And I’m still pissed off at my ex-boyfriend, who began to hate me due to a mild obsession with Les Mis (and all my other obsessions too, but that’s a long story).

    I mean sure I didn’t agree with the “Noble woman” bullshit. But in the end this is a story about a cocktease. First Genji and now this. Why are famous Japanese characters such assholes?! All you had to goddamn say was “Hey dad I am not happy here” but no. Ya didn’t. You just frigging moped going wa..wa…me..me..me! Well guess what? F*ck you!

    So I watched Ghibli’s a tale of princess Kaguya. It’s nice to finally know the tale fully but I can’t help thinking that…princess Kaguya was a serious bitch. I mean she put one man in debt, drove another one insane and even got one killed! I mean bloody hell you self righteous bitch! Sure the suitors got carried away but that could have been avoided if she set the record straight.

    I give you that many a problems with LNs might actually stem from bad or amateur translation. The Song of Ice and Fire series has a lot of sex and bloodshed, but they usually fill a purpose, or completely make sense given the setting of the events. I’m not prudish or care about having sex in books, I’m just turned off by bad writing or fundamental logic flaws within the story.

    @Aidan: I would never insinuate that there aren’t bad books, even among the classics. Given the entirety of the literature of mankind that becomes a given. I originally posted the comment due to a common argument with people who as soon as I want to criticize LNs, or compare their themes and writing to literature, wave a convenient banner of “oh these aren’t books, their light novels” -_-

    Not to be mean but Erika Leonard just strikes me as a lonely lady who wrote an erotica based on her fantasies of having a ooooooooh mysterious handsome rich guy interested in her and their escapades in the sex dungeon, which for some reason resonated with millions. Trends are usually unpredictable.

    Fifty shades of grey started life originally as a twilight fanfic.

    What Fifty Shades of Grey does is take an abusive relationship and portrays it as BDSM.

    If the pandering by way of nudity/sex/fanservice went away. you’d have more pandering with rape, gore, violence.

Recommendation corner 02 – Light novels #1

Its very easy to disregard the light novel genre completely as it is responsible for the creation of quite a number of unoriginal, bad and shameless pandering anime in recent years. However there still are worthwhile stories within the genre. They are just a little less known.   Mushoku Tensei Description: A 34-year-old NEET otaku […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 10

Very nice start to the beginning of the episode with the Unlimited Bladeworks chant. Sure, it has been parodied to kingdom come but I still love it and all it’s broken engrish glory. But now I can say it with certainty. This series is not suitable for being watched weekly. In watching this episode I […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 09

The pattern continues with another building up episode. Admittedly I find this somewhat disappointing. I feel that this show would be better marathoned than watched weekly as the wait for what is a essentially a build up to the next episode can hamper the experience a bit. As I said before, this show would work […]

The fight between explosives girl and the sins was ended quicker than I thought.

Nanatsu no Taizai – 08

There was a few questionable things here this episode. The episode starts with the new villain quite literally killing herself to enter the kingdom of the dead.

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako.

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche.

Normally I try to avoid spoilers with these reviews, but screw it, it’s Pokemon. Pokemon The Origin is a bomb of nostalgia.

I’m not going to dedicate a post for my impression for the final three episodes of this series. It was just too boring to write much about.

Silver Spoon Review – 86/100

When Noitamina started airing two series per season, it was amazing.

Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]
