「あたしって、ほんとバカ」 (Atashitte, Honto Baka)
“I’ve been such a fool”
Yeah, it’s THAT episode. The one everyone’s been talking about. I know grown men who cried at this episode. Like, seriously. As someone who shed tears at episodes 10 and 11 of Soul Eater, I can say that I am not one of those people. Though I can’t deny that this episode was one big shock. Also, a bit of SPECULAH have was confirmed in this episode, but we’ll get onto that in a bit. There’s one thing I should mention before I start the post. MyssaRei had tweeted a link to a flash game where you can beat the crap out of Kyubey. My highest score is 143 HITS so far. The link to the game is HERE.
Yeah, I was bored and I saw this and I thought: “WHY THE HELL NOT?” Probably sucks and I can’t remember his speech all too well, but whatever.
「それはとっても嬉しいなって」 (Sore wa Tottemo Ureshii Natte)
“That Would Make Me Really Happy”
NOW I know why I love this show. Mami Tomoe is officially awesome. I’m glad I decided to give this show a watch because there’s some pretty good stuff going on with this show. Also, over the past week I’ve grown to fall in love with the show’s OP. Heck, even today I learned the chorus to the song on piano! I think I’m becoming a fan of ClariS. In any case, this week’s episode served as an explanation to the situation, who Mami is, what Kyube is, who Akemi is, what witches are, basically everything.
「夢の中で会った、ような。。。」 (Yume no Naka de Atta, Youne…)
“As if I met her in my dreams…”
SURPRISE! I replaced StarrySky with this show. So a couple of things before we get into this. This show is an original show made by SHAFT, meaning there’s no canon material for it to follow. I believe this show has two names. “Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica” and “Puella Magi Madoka Magica”. I don’t know what the deal with that is, or if they both mean the same thing. In any case, this is a magical girl anime. I will tell you NOW, that I haven’t watched a magical girl anime properly since the days of Sailor Moon. So I’m stepping into quite an unfamiliar territory. Now, I will also tell you NOW that my main reason for checking this show out was because of the voice talent in the show. Particularly the fact that the young and fresh Aoi Yuuki was going to be playing Madoka, the main character. I particularly enjoyed her role as Jubei Yagyuu (both personas) in the recent Hyakkaryouran: Samurai Girls show. Not to mention that the likes of Emiri Katou and Eri Kitamura were also voicing in this. So, yeah. The fact that I’m blogging this now means that this must’ve left a good impression on me, no?
