WHAT?! WHAT?! WHAAAAT?!
No. You’re screwing with me right? Fuck no, not him. Not MICHEL! -insert angry rant-
I think I said before that Kairi (Shugo Chara!) probably ended up as my favorite megane guy. But that’s all because I had somehow stupidly forgotten about about Michel. I’m sorry but I don’t think I’ve been this pissed/sad about a character dying since Kamina or L. Deaths in Geass don’t count because they definitely aren’t dead (and I wasn’t pissed about those deaths in the first place).
Because I was so busy this week, I never had the time to check out the posts about Macross Frontier 20. And so, I had absolutely no idea that Michel was going to die prior to watching the episode. I did guess it was going to happen though after the mid-episode eye catches. Why else would we get MichelxKlan pictures anyway? When Klan confessed and kissed Michel, I was a 100% sure about the death. Man, would the guys please stop dying a few minutes after the girl confesses and kisses them? I can’t take this any longer.
(It’s like Macross is following Geass or something. Everything gets fucked in a single episode. Albeit, Geass was a little more extreme about it.)
Ranka, you’re really cute and I love you. I’m still voting you all the way for Saimoe. BUT! You were kinda annoying this episode. Seriously, it’s been twenty episodes of you always showing up when Sheryl and Alto are having they’re “intimate” moment. Get used to it. (At least she didn’t break out in the USO DA USO DA!) Between Ranka and Sheryl, yes, it’s Ranka I prefer the most. If were talking about who I want Alto to end up with though, I’m still shipping Sheryl. I’ve been shipping AltoxSheryl all the way. Should I give up hope now? That is if Alto makes a decision in the end … at the very least, we’re not getting a yaoi ending with either Luca or Michel … only in my mind. Speaking of which, it’s kinda refreshing seeing this huge amount of hetero couples in one show. I kinda forgot they existed. Can you guess which anime’s fault that is?
(Y’know, Sheryl and Ranka are like two different parts of Rena. Ranka has the hair and Sheryl the beret and “USO DA!”)
WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM!?
Honestly, I’m really glad Sheryl makes a comeback this episode. I missed her. I love Diamond Crevasse but I think I’ll just feel like crying every time I hear it in the next few days. I’m going to miss Michel. At least there’s only 5 or 6 episodes left. I think I can handle 6 Michel-less episodes. Right? Right!?
One of the few few few straight pairings I’ve come to love.
I’ll start off by saying that Michel unfortunately didn’t make my Top Ten Anime Guys. Actually, none of my megane bishies made the Top Ten. I’m saving them for another time. After this episode though, Michel just pwned Tamaki, Kantaro and Tsuzuki … he’s right under this Monday’s guy.
Okay, so Michel has a huge handicap because I loved him the second I heard Kamiyan was voicing him. Another plus because I haven’t heard Kamiyan voice a playboy before. And another plus for the glasses. The guilty pleasure plus (oh wait, were the two guilty pleasures too?) is MichelxAlto. I wonder when I’ll be able to hear a BLCD featuring Playboy Kamiya x Tsundere Nakamura. Well, we all know You-kyan is tsundere in RL too (see Oofuri DJCD 2, track 3 for more information). Maybe that’s why he’s so good at voicing them.
Um, right, back to Michel. It’s always the guy’s like him that end up dying and it’s always guy’s like him that are sort of best friends with the main character. It’s ALWAYS the manlier, wiser, cooler guy that dies. -points at Lockon(screw that, I forgot that he’s from a Sunrise anime) and Kamina- What? Is it like a necessity to kill them off or something? Maybe I should stop being surprised about these things.
(BTW, I think I squealed more when Alto screamed Michel’s name than when Michel confessed to Klan. Or maybe I could distort it in my mind and make it so that Michel confessed to Alto. Wait a sec, did Klan even scream? She didn’t, didn’t she? Not that I care either way. Yeah, fujoshis are unreasonable that way)
Here’s a bunch of Michel shots from episode 20:
Megane-less at the last second.
Now excuse me while I put Diamond Crevasse on repeat even though it depresses me.
(I wasn’t supposed to post this but I really couldn’t help it after finding the time in my busy schedule to watch MacrossF … I’m really going to miss you Michel)
