Am I back? I hope I am. I’m actually pretty reluctant to be posting this but the term is over and I don’t want to get become any later than I already am. Anyways, I’ve made myself watching anime and I missed it. I did some “walking down memory lane” and it made me wanna blog again. That’s a story for later though.
Ah, Yukine. I didn’t make it a secret that I find her arc extremely boring. And now I realize I found it boring because the whole Tomoya x Yukine idea is not very appealing to me. In truth, Yukine’s story is just as moving as anyone elses. The anime adaption made me realize that. I was touched once again. Well, of course, it wasn’t as good as Misae’s or Sunohara’s but it was great nonetheless.
First highlight of the arc; cute shota! Okay, so he isn’t as cute and awesome as Shima but a shota is still a shota.
What I liked about the anime is that they changed a few things that made the arc so much more interesting than in the game. In the game, I remembered this kid sticking around Yukine, Tomoya and Sunohara for a while until his mom came to scold them. Something like that. In the anime, the kid became the trigger to Tomoya and the rest finding out about Yukine. Which in turn led to epic fight.
Akiko Jamu + Sanae Pan = One Hit K.O
I didn’t want to take any screenshots of Tomoya getting beat up but those scenes had me on edge. My mind kept on screaming “someone stop them!” PLEASE!. God knows how much giggling I did when Sunohara woke up and charged in.
Seeing a more emotional Yukine was another highlight for the arc. Ah, impact. It was beautiful when she dressed up as her brother to try and stop the fighting. I would’ve cried but I don’t like Yukine all that much.
Oh, the lights ~
At least we’re making connections to the other world now. Anyways, I enjoyed Yukine’s arc … more than the game at least. Wow, I’m still blocking on words. Apologies.
Looks like we’ll be talking about the future next week. Yay, progress.
