(Moved from Generic Discussion.) While it's interesting seeing Matsuri's character develop in ep3, Mana was the highlight for me:

Spoiler for ep3 (Doremi subs):

Her facial expressions and intonation during this scene are simply wonderful :heh:

Skyfall 2007-04-24 08:25

This ep gets a 9 from me. While not exactly much happened, it is very much my kind of episode. Lots of character interactions, and i found both Matsuri and Mana very likable.

Cyz 2007-04-24 08:49

It has many Matsuri moments that's for sure. Besides, it's a nice episode especially what happened on the first 2.

Anyway, nice little 'my pace' slice-of-life episode where little happens, apart from the character development characteristic of any plot written by a KEY writer. Therefore, my thoughts on Episode 03 will be on the lighter side as well;

1) At the start, Yorito mentioned that the electric stove, water heater and air conditioner all broke by themselves. Although the obvious cause is apparently Matsuri being a graduate of the 'kick it and it'll work' school of mechanical repair, I'm starting to think there's more to it than that. In fact, I think it's the foreshadowing as to why Matsuri claimed Yorito will learn to hate her; the fact that machines break down easily around her seems to be a manifestation of her 'quick-rust' powers, at least to my reckoning.

2) I must be spoiled by KyoAni; Nomad's 'normal' animation quality seems to pale by comparison. :heh:

3) Aono sheds her (Yuki/Mai/Rei) demeanour rather quickly; she's still mostly silent, but at least she isn't as good as hiding her feelings than the aforementioned girls. :p

4) Again, I wonder how come Glasses Man has enough funds to feed Rozen Loli at a fairly high-class restaurant, yet doesn't have the moolah to provide the latter with something better than a cardboard box. :heh:

5) MEIDO!!! They've been strangely prevalent today; I saw a couple of them handing out flyers outside Orchard Road MRT this afternoon. Talk about a little bit of Japan coming to Singapore, and now I see Mana in her meido uniform. :heh:

Damned that I didn't have a camera today.... :sad:

6) Oh, speaking of Mana, apparently she's stacked, and her meido uniform shows that to good effect. ;)

7) Judging from their reactions when Mana suggested they were father and daughter, and judging from the kind of things Rozen Loli said, chances are Rozen Loli is somewhat like Matsuri as well. Which means not only do they not age, but apparently they're both stuck looking the same way forever. No wonder Rozen Loli needed Glasses Man around; she'll probably never grow up, if my theory is correct. What a bummer. :heh:

8) Requesting animated avatar from 08:37-08:41 of the Doremi sub of Sola Ep3; Matsuri doing her little 'detergent advertisement' thing with eyes alternately closed and open. Too cute. :love:

9) Speaking of which, I just had a thought; where does Matsuri get the funds to buy all that cup ramen? :heh:

10) Requesting animated siggy from 11:50-11:55 of the Doremi fansub; SD Matsuri, Koyori and Aono castigating Yorito in his imagination, ending with Aono pulling out her knife. Find a way to add in the words they said, and stick my nick somewhere in there as well. I'm a fan of giving bishoujos sharp, pointy things too. :D

11) Matsuri really is simple-minded. :heh:
Speaking of which, I'm losing the Kaede-vibes from Mana, but now I'm getting from Mana and Matsuri the same vibes that I got with Nayuki and Ayu in Kanon 2k6. :heh:

Alright, then. Awaiting Ep04.

Brought over my thoughts about Ep03 here. ;)

Well, won't say much more than this, so I'll throw this an 8 for the time being. Nothing much happens, so this is as high as it can go, but that's not a bad thing in itself. ;)

The best sola episode so far for me. :) Loved the interaction between girls.

Not "oniichan", but "Ototo" as in little/younger/baby brother.

Btw, where have all the Sola-fans gone? Start posting in this section of the forum, show more interest, or we will threaten to remove this forum and replace it with a thread. :uhoh: Just kidding. :heh:

Asrialys 2007-04-24 18:55

School? At least, that's where I am.

Or they're all rewatching Matsuri's awesomeness in episode 3. I don't know. I found it fun to watch Matsuri in episode 3, especially with her interaction with Mana.

My expression at the connection can only be ":heh:". ...Interesting... Such very interesting things one can find.

Skane 2007-04-24 22:00

The following is based on [Doremi]'s fansub,

Random Thoughts on Ep03:
---- ----
  • As a person who reads up a lot on "Literary Devices" and "Common Clichés", it entertains me to no end to see "sola" subvert them on a frequent basis. :heh:

    Examples include a pantsu-joke that has no pantsu-flash, the two times that they tried to fake us into believing that Matsuri left the house (during the first incident, they even started a dramatic BGM which setted us up for a "pathos-filled" search).

    The only way they could get more subversive is to break the fourth-wall. :p
    .
  • If there ever comes a time when the fate of the world depended on Yorito keeping a secret, the world would be doomed. I mean really, Yorito keeps a secret about as well as a snowball trying to stay cool in Hell.
    .
  • Judging from the conversation in the cafe, Mayuko is older than she appears. How much older though... is still up for speculation.
    .
  • I find it amusing that Takeshi and Matsuri are so laid back about each other. :heh: I can't think of another "hunter & prey" pairing where the tension between the two of them is lower. The cynical would call Takeshi "lazy", and Matsuri "reckless".

    The only way they could be more relaxed is to have "half-time" breaks during their fights and have tea together. :p
    .
  • Takeshi muffling Mayuko with a napkin was just wrong. :heh: I bet the producers had a ball drawing out that scene. :p
    .
  • Some choice quotes from the cafe:
    - "There goes my reputation."
    - "They look like quite the complicated family."

    :heh:
    .
  • It must suck to be a guy in a town where all the girls are pretty sharp. Their intuition only seems to fail when they try to analyse another girl. :p
    .
  • Does Mana harbour feelings for Yorito or not? They are still pretty ambiguous on this issue as of this episode. Personally, I hope she does not, so that they can focus their attention on Matsuri's core story.
    .
  • Aono spoke more in the "preview" than in the past three episodes. :p
Looking forward to the next episode.

Cheers.

I didn't exactly like how Yorito's flabberghastiness (( I know there's no such word...I think )) was potrayed in a putting-off manner, but aside from that, it's a pretty decent episode. Nothing happened, but the sense of interaction left-and-right is pretty nice too.

Though I've noticed that for a show titled "sky", there hasn't exactly been any l33t sky animation pr0n. And no, the ED don't count one bit.

Let's see... I'm going to try this from memory:
"It's a secret."
"You're late."
"Tasteless."
"What is it?" (I might be wrong about this one.)
"Not really."
"Don't open them."
"Eight." (Though it might've been 7...)
"I don't need it."
"Here."
"I'm hungry."
"That's not it."
"I'll kill him."

Hrm... I think I'm missing a couple. Doesn't she ask "Where's Yorito?" at one point? But I'm not sure if it was in episode 1 or 2.

(Note to all actors: This is what happens when you insist on being paid by the word.)

You know that game where you look at the clouds and try to imagine what the shapes look like?
.... Remind me never to do that when you're around.

Clouds ALWAYS look like animals to me.

And I hope I'm not giving a wrong impression. :uhoh:

pr0n in this case = needless unneccesarily beautiful cloud moving animation with beautiful colours, effects, etc. I call it pr0n here because it adds nothing to the meat of the story other than "nice visuals".

Peaceful Day
 
I think a better title for this episode would be a Worked-Up Day or at least it was for Yorito being too tense to keep the facade so that Mana would not discover Matsuri sheltered in the house.

Was it a female intuition that led Mana to suspect that Yorito was hiding someone in the house? - It is not that surprising if I think about it, because Mana is Yorito's osananjimi, and therefore, knows him from a long time to easily tell apart his mood and mannerisms.

Spoiler:


Honestly, I do not think at all that Mana harbors a feeling for Yorito. Their relation goes among the best of friends. The relative that watches over him so he won't make mistakes.

I think they are just good friends. She doesn't seem to be that jealous that Yorito is living with a cute girl. :heh:
