So this turned out to be quite an emotional week, and I’m completely fine with that:
5. Inu X Boku SS 10:
A Loyal Dog?
My god, Miketsukami confirmed for hottest bishie, and it’s not just looks here. Gotta bring looks first though, casual clothes and glasses? Totally felt for Ririchiyo as her view trembled upon examining him haha.. On top of that, he started acting wicked to further mix her emotions, just so that he gets the chance to sweet-talk her as she shifts to full angry tsuntsun mode. Him says: “would I bite the hand that feeds me?” and then hnnnng frank dokidoki alright!
4. Chihayafuru 23:
MANLY TEARS KUYASHII!!
Yet *awwwwwwwww~* Harada-sensei is all ready to take them for you. Seriously, the dude is amazing don’t you agree? Ah, might as well admit to myself that Harada-sensei was my secret favorite character all along. :’3
3. Mirai Nikki 21:
“We’re the same. I see now. I wanted to be saved too.”
Err I never expected I would cry watching Mirai Nikki, but I admit being vulnerable to unpredicted tears, especially when accompanied by effective BGM along with them, and that’s the exact recipe we got here. I really liked the whole showdown between Minene and Yukiteru, she was a likable character from the beginning and it would’ve been a waste if she was just shot down to death like say, eleventh *lol*, in the same episode. The way her weakness was revealed clenched my heart, but it wasn’t until the moment of her “shocking” memories of her family that I broke in tears when she did.. RIP Minene =”(
2. Nisemonogatari 10:
“You’re looking lively. Did something good happen?”
Yes, a damned plot happened! I was torn choosing between this and Kaiki’s abrupt reappearance *which had me lolololol*, but in the end I figured Araragi’s beastly rage over gigantic finger wiping out his sister’s upper body had a bigger dokidoki impact on me. And it wasn’t just that actually, I was filled with tension since the time Yotsugi kept ringing the doorbell of Araragi’s house to every other warning, threat and reveal uttered by all involved parties, bluff was it or real. I especially loved how Araragi felt weak compared to his “servant” Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade Loli-vampire Oshino-Shinobu, and how she in return also felt weak compared to Yozuru. Hey I see what they did there, cooking up a dazzling antihero as the final villain, and I think it was awesome!
1. Natsume Yuujinchou Shi 11:
A Single Photo…
…is enough to make me cry my feelings out, that’s Natsume for you. I became so attached to Natsume that I can easily relate to him in every emotion he experiences, and I felt troubled since the moment he lost his precious picture of his parents. I also connected to his shyness when he tried to hide the fact that he lost the picture, and then felt relieved when Tanuma caught on that. And last when the picture was found, I became so eager to get a glimpse of his parents like they were my deceased relatives that I never met. As Natsume showed it to us, gasping of what resemblance he has to them, my emotions swirled to surface and my eyes got soaked with tears. “When I looked at their kind smiles, and thought that I was supposed to be there smiling, too… I couldn’t stop crying.” …so yeah this show, I wanted a hug after that ;_;
