Posted by psgels on 21 December 2007 with categories: Shugo Chara


So, this was basically a Su-episode: she gets lost thanks to Ikuto’s Shugo Chara causing trouble, and she spends the episode, trying to find her way back, along with the dog of Amu’s admirer, who seemed to have been lost as well. Overall, it wasn’t such a bad episode, and I like the development that Su has gotten now. The fact that the creators are already mentioning a Christmas-tree in episode ten seems to suggest that we’re in for one heck of a Christmas-special for this show.

Also, for the first time I liked Utau and Ikuto: for the first time, Utau actually came in action, instead of looking at Ikuto like she usually does. It now also becomes clear that she’s searching for Embryo for Ikuto. It does make sense. I’ve aways wondered why Ikuto had a Shugo Chara, while he’s much older than all the other characters of the series. It’s probably also got something to do with this.

This episode also finally shows us Amu’s Su-transformation, one which uses honey to change batsu-charas back. I still find everything going a bit too easy for Amu. I mean, all she has to do is transform and unleash her powers to save the day.

    instead of droping shugochara you should make aepsiode with ikuto/shugochara as couple.

    Shugo Charas are born from their desires, aren’t they? That’s why Ikuto had a Shugo Chara. He wants to be free like a stray cat.
    Of course, it has to be easy for Amu, because she is just starting. And since it has no deep plot, of course the main character always wins. Except maybe for some challenges, like when an X appeared on her fourth egg.
    So what if Ikuto is older than the rest? Does that mean he has no right to have a Shugo Chara?

    The point is I feel that really I didn’t try, didn’t really give the genre any chance really before hating on it, not enough of one. Especially given how most of these don’t get going, long past the points where I stopped.

    This literally was me at 12 watching dragonball Z, not even complete episodes, merely a few and deciding “This is shit” and for years after hating an entire genre based on that.

    Apparently I never actually gave the genre a chance even at the very beginning I encountered it…given that those few dragonball z episodes were watched when I was young…

    Naruto is pure Shonen and never pretended to be anything beyond entertainment for a younger male audience, so I don’t see why anyone would go out of their way to bash it. SAO was fun to take apart just to hear the cries of the dedicated fanbase, if nothing else, but that also loses its charm pretty fast since for every head you cut off two more take its place.

    When you get down to it my opinion on Naruto is essentially that its terrible because dragonball is.

    Eight episodes of sword arts first season, then skimming the bit where Asuna gets humilated, then maybe watch one episode of season 2, then skimming two of them, then watching some of the ending.

    I think I read maybe 3-5 volumes of bleachs manga and then watched the part where Aizen faked dying then came back then I just stopped.

    If I think about it I never actually gave Naruto, one piece, bleach, dragonball Z, hunter x hunter, sword art much of a chance did I? One volume and about three episodes of one piece, 30 episodes of HxH at most, maybe about three or four random episodes of Naruto, random bits of episodes of dbzs cell, frieza and buu arcs and about 3 episodes of GT.

    There is also a certain high degree of Bootstrap Paradox at work here when Shirou (Archer) goes to the past and inspires himself into projecting the very same weapon he is currently using. Also wouldn’t Archer bringing the necklace with him to the past cause a spacetime duplicate?

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 20

This episode wasn’t quite what I expected. It is true that I didn’t get the big fight I was looking for, though there were clashes going on. However this still was a very good episode. So on the matters of Kirei, Rin, Lancer and Shinji it was all done perfectly. Well there was this weird […]

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 3-6

So far the focus has been pretty heavily on Tsumugi, the chimera. Who is strangely moefied. Its really odd to see what is essentially a giant  tentacled monster display the characteristics of a innocent cutsy little girl. Still she is to me one of the better characters of the show. Untainted by the negative aspects […]

Oh my god, I can’t believe that Archer is the future Shirou Emiya!….said no one who watched this episode. But yes the cat is out of the bag. Archer is Shirou turned cynical and jaded after playing executioner for a couple of decades. There was a small bit showing how he contracted with the world […]

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 1-2

Even after a long break its nice to see that Sidonia hasn’t lost its edge. The story is still engaging and CG robot battles dynamic. However…was the CG this bad before? I remember it took some time to get used to the CG animation of the last season but this seems especially stiff. The easy […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 16

So at the start of this episode featured the big moment of Gilgamesh ripping out Illya’s heart and it was surprisingly underwhelming. It is true that in context this makes more sense and fits his character better. But it is a little disappointing. Strangely this wasn’t how it was in the visual novel and this […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 15

The word that encompasses this episode in a nutshell would be brutal. Whether you love her or hate her, I say few would believe that Illya deserved this fate. The tragedy is ever more pungent if you know the full details of her past. Anime only viewers may not get the most out of this […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 14

As a reader of the Fate/stay night visual novel I can confirm that the majority of this episode was anime original content. However instead of being about castors history like I thought, it’s of his backstory with her first master. In all honestly making the episode be about her history with Jason would have been […]

Shirobako Review – 80/100

When you see a harem anime and sigh as the breasts of the female lead jiggle with every step and wind that can flip a skirt it’s easy to forget that somewhere in Japan a group of people worked hard to get that jiggle right and draw each frame of animation. The hardships of the […]

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. No TV-series […]

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.

Noucome! You do not want to know how long I have been waiting for a series like this. More than half a decade, at the very least. Finally a series comes along and puts the incredibly overused harem genre in its place. And it actually does it well. Thank you! So to elaborate: the harem […]

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. It’s a timeslot that on average tends to be aimed at a much older audience than usual, and having two series with the same mentality definitely helped to bring more diversity to anime overall. Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]

The tricky thing with these kinds of series is that you need to remain funny, and you need to have the inspiration for that. […]
