I loved Misae’s arc. I thought I loved Sunohara’s arc but this arc just blew my away. The After Story is beating the first season by miles. I’ve felt like crying every episode since episode, what? Three? As I said before, one of my favorite things about Misae’s arc is the supernatural elements. Although, when you consider everything altogether, her story because quite obvious. Still, that doesn’t take away all the emotion in their story. It’s all so bittersweet. And I love bittersweet.
Shima has officially won the prize for the character with the most screenshots
(By the way, I apologize the for the lateness of my posts. WordPress is lagging greatly on me and I’ve got a flash project to work on)
There wasn’t much left for me to complain about for Misae’s arc. I was so much more touched with the anime because, well, you can see it all happen before you. Which, obviously, isn’t exactly the case in the game where we’re lacking in visuals. Really, I have nothing to complain about.
Blushing is cute, therefore Shima is cute, therefore, Cute is Shima!
And this is where you’re filled with so much ‘aw! too cute!’ that you forget that something tragic is soon going to happen. I was practically tearing my heart out here because … damn, it’s just too sad. Why don’t I get tired of these storylines anyway? (I blame Shima. It’s Shima’s fault!)
Shima is still cute!
Now how many times have we seen this scenario elsewhere? Many times. Have I ever disliked it? Nope, not once. I was into crossdressing boys since before I got into BL. It’s hard to dislike when Daisuke was just too cute in that dress. Yes yes, DNAngel’s Dai-chan. If I had a friend as cute as Shima, I’d do the same as Saki and Yuki … except take a lot of pictures to blackmail him with later on. Damnit, I want my own male moe doll!
Yoshino Yuusuke is my hero.
I’m still selling Yoshino Yuusuke UNITS to those who want him!
(Seriously though, is that you Midorin?!)
Shojo bubbles + Bishies sparkles + Uke face + Blush + Cute Line + Crossdressing + Shima = Me, KO.
You’re too much KyoAni, you’re too much. I thought I was going to have a heart attack. Now if we remove the wig, add glasses and nekomimi and “hajimete dakara, hidoku shinaide” I’d really cave in. Oh yeah, I love being a fangirl.
Damnit. Must. Resist. Urge. To. Take. Shima. And. Run. To. A. Quiet. Place.
Oh, I’m sorry. That’s me thinking out loud again.
Well hey, Shima actually looks like a little kitten now. Seriously, with his personality he’s better off a puppy. The only way to persuade me otherwise is to stick some nekomimi on him. I demand this now.
I’m not looking at Shima’s face+white spot with strange eyes. Nope, I’m not. I swear Goddamnit!
This is just about where I started breaking down inside. Shima’s just remembered his purpose and Misae’s finally ready to tell him her wish.
And this where I started breaking down on the outside. It was short but sweet yes? I didn’t have the time to fangirl about Shima’s cute face. I’d be ruining my own mood if I did that. I was so into the episode that I didn’t realize I was watching.
(When an episode is good, I get sucked into it enough to feel like I’m really there. I’m kinesthetic. >_<)
(I didn’t upload the pic because of WordPress lagging but I absolutely loved what Tomoya was wearing this episode)
And so here ends the beautiful bittersweet arc that was Misae’s. I just said a few episodes ago that Sunohara’s arc was my favorite but I’m not so sure anymore. If KyoAni keeps this up, I won’t be able to pick a favorite anymore. I just keep on being blown away. It’s all absolutely beautiful. I think I wanna cry inside again.
Anyways, next week is Yukine’s arc. I didn’t like it in the game. Let’s see if KyoAni will convince me otherwise.
