it's out already?

Mystique 2009-05-07 10:49

It's airing now (0.45am Japan time)
The thread is just made ahead of time each week, that's all.
The Selecao I've been waiting for finally appears.
Hope it's a cool ep. :)

Post show edit:

:hyper-^v^:KYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA :hyper-^v^:
(Yes, there was some squealing offline from me too in my room, I'm such a sap...) :heh:

This week, I have to spoiler, that was too insane, it was so much fun! xD
That will be the first 10/10 rating for me for this series. :)
(*squeals* and it had mameshiba!!!)
Spoiler for Episode 5:

I'm just glad I wasn't disappointed to be eagerly waiting for ep 5.
Bring on next week already! :D

Dear lord, bring back the server for the juiz website so I can see the preview for ep 6 already... :T_T:

Damn, after such a reaction you gotta give us at least a brief summary... PLEASE!! :heh:

Yeah, I still tend to write in cryptic until the raw/subs come out, then I notice people openly writing about the events of the episode each week.
So to not risk being slapped with infractions/banned etc...

But I needed to exorcise my giddiness somewhere, so tossed it in here for now. :)
@Kazu - if you saw the screenshots of ep 5 (is the website back up yet...?)
Then you'll have an idea of what happens anyways.
Just... seeing it all played out though was like... damn... so much drama. xD

Just use it as motivation to do something boring like chores and then treat yourself when it gets released :)

it's not that he/she wont give us a summary it's that he/she cant. Mystique watched the raw but cant give us a brief summary because he/she does not understand Japanese. There's also a risk of making a fool out of yourself if your facts are wrong.

M.Marangio 2009-05-07 13:59

The website is up again, and there is a short review with screenshots here: http://randomc.animeblogger.net/2009...f-the-east-05/

Kazu-kun 2009-05-07 14:23

Gotta say I wasn't expecting that to happen so soon, but I'm not complaining. :heh: It was really cute. ^^

Kaoru Chujo 2009-05-07 14:27

In these single-episode threads, spoilers aren't necessary for events in the episode. I have made a fool of myself before. I'm used to it. So here is my probably slightly inaccurate summary:

Diana (the blue-haired bombshell) wakes up in her luxurious penthouse, shuffles off her king-size bed (great animation of her body; you can feel the flesh) and realizes there is a bloody fat man tied to a chair across the room. She phones Juiz and says "it seems I've done it again." Juiz arranges for clean-up.

Akira is confused and fed up. He almost throws his Noblesse phone into the ruins, but stops himself in time. A NEET recognizes him and calls him by name (we know for sure now that he is actually Akira, and picked his own passport from the pile) and gets angry at what he did to them, imprisoning them and sending them to Dubai, but ends up saying it was okay, that he was to be married, and what Akira did actually helped him get used to society and gave him a way forward.

Saki is at home, helping at the bakery just before going to her interview. Ryousuke emphasizes again that they will look after her until she finds something she really wants to do. She still wants to escape being a burden on them.

Saki meets Oosugi on the train and agrees very diffidently to go to dinner with him. Oosugi is thrilled.

Akira finally reads Saki's message and realizes she might be worried, so he texts her. But she is on her way to the interview and can't reply. He gets Juiz to help him find where she is.

In her interview, the interviewer has already decided not to hire her, because she went on the trip instead of coming to the first interview. He cuts the interview short and tells her to come to lunch in the cafeteria, but never shows. And she has a bowl of beef rice spilled on her. In the washroom she hears the secretaries laughing about her situation and the (intentional) spill.

We see the guy from the car in ep1 again, at a military airport, checking #9's accounts and on the phone with Juiz. He is wearing a ruby ring and is Selecao #1. And we see Diana eating steak and interviewing prospective models for her agency. She thinks she will probably do it again tonight, and smiles. She notices Akira's new expense for finding Saki and wonders with a smile what #1 will do.

Coming out of the building from her interview, with Oosugi approaching (she doesn't see him), Saki sees Akira there with his yellow bike, and off they go, to Oosugi's horror.

Standing by the water that evening, Saki explains what happened and says she can't go home, since they have done so much for her, and she loves Ryousuke. Akira listens quietly to everything she says, then bends down and kisses her. He walks toward the water and says she can stay with him, that he will look after everything, and then says something about making Japan better. I think he's beginning to want to get with the program. She asks him who he really is. He answers that he doesn't know, but he will probably find out.

Meanwhile, Oosugi has called Kasuga (the plump member of the Eden of the East club) to share the high-class dinner he planned to have with Saki. He gets drunk and falls as he is stumbling home through the streets. We see Diana approaching -- but she is headed, with a secret smile, toward another man standing waiting for her on the other side of the street (I think)....

Hayami Saori scores again, with a brilliant sequence where she is explaining to Akira what happened and her feelings about things. Tremendous voice-control and expressiveness, on the edge of breaking down. Akira's calm and gentle, but masculine, presentation is good, too (by Kimura Ryouhei).

1. 11 episodes. 2. I don't think so. First, this show is more complicated than that; I still don't totally grasp where he is coming from, and some fairly serious outside events will interfere with or intensify the romance as we go on. Second, who knows what they will get up to in future episodes.

ah, so that means we will be getting a cliffhanger ending then...and the movie will resolve everything?

We can't be sure, but that's probably right.

Starry Dust 2009-05-07 16:48

I officially rate this episode second best to the first episode...in my opinion.

I could not stop squealing...and smiling C: but then I felt devasted afterwords.

I dunno what else to say.

kari-no-sugata 2009-05-07 17:09

I wonder if next week we'll see a certain scummy manager hanging by his balls or something, for what he did to Saki. He certainly deserves something.

Given that Akira asked Juiz if she could make the Prime Minster say "uncle" as a test of her powers... well, it could happen. (I think later in the ep they said the PM's ratings had gone up 10% or something, lol).

Anyway, a big thank you to Akira for what he did do this ep - to help cheer up Saki. Seeing a depressed Saki is rather depressing - to this viewer anyway.

yeah this sounds about right.

The interviewer of saki never planned to hire her from the beginning because he knew she wasnt so serious about the job taking a trip outside japan and also because she canceled the 1st scheduled interview. He told her to come to lunch but flaked on her. She waits an hour and has donburi spilled on her purposefully to get her to leave.

this was a great episode, and a great turn around from the last one.

We'll only see him in such a pose if he crosses paths with Diana, lol.

The cellphone accounts said it cost Akira only Y60 to get the PM to say "gyafun." (I guess that means "uncle", like "I give up"?) But it cost him Y220,000 to trace Saki's whereabouts.

And thanks for the extra info, hamstar.
