Many of us who collect Japanese anime-and-related goods are currently salivating at the revelation that there'll be a Limited Special Edition of the Blu-Ray for this show that will come with Kantoku-illustrated bedsheets for the characters. Of course, each volume is about 9800 yen each MSRP (about ~$100 USD), collect all 6! (Granted, it's 3000 yen extra just for the bedsheet, and you can buy a version of the Special Edition without them...)


Anyway, that aside, I really enjoyed the first episode, and particularly the interactions with Azusa. The way she starts flubbing her words when embarrassed and inserting "nya"s into everything is seriously going to do me in. But Tsukiko is no less competition in the cute department either (but holy cow is her full name a tongue-twister -- Tsutsukakushi Tsukiko -- try saying that ten times fast!).

The one small thing I actually wasn't too sure how to interpret at first was Tsukiko's kicking the bed after Azusa leaves the infirmary. But after thinking about it, I guess it's that she's angry/frustrated, but because of her condition she's not able to show emotions on her face/in her voice. So instead she starts kicking the bed like some sort of a twitch, which gets the point across. That's because her specific wish was that her true feelings should not show on her face. And hence the frustration: she has feelings, but she's completely prevented from showing it the way she normally would. In that sense, it's not so different from Azusa's "condition" where she's not able to show her true feelings in public if it would hurt her pride as an upper-class lady. Hence, our protagonist's clever exploitation of embarrassing her further in public, and playing right into the words she used to turn down the last guy. In the literal sense, he's meeting absolutely everyone of the requirements she laid down, and he's shown himself willing to be her slave. How is a high-class lady to refuse such an offer of unbridled devotion and loyalty? Her "happy like a curled-up cheetah" was awesome, though. (Points also for the sarcastic "yay... two girls are fighting over me... it's like a dream..." delivery. )

Anyway, I'm looking forward to next week.

I'd like to believe that such a thread is nothing more than a (near) death zone. It'd be great to have but having a heart attack every visit to it is...

Better than having the death piled in this thread

I nearly shot myself by saying that I'll do this series in exchange for more gifs...

Now I'm getting diabetes by moe.

Not often one to comment on images, but just want to say that somehow this gif pretty much single-handed summarizes the entire "tsundere" archetype in a few seconds. The insinuation of an inappropriate glare (holding the skirt down), the "tsun" glance away in anger, and then the slight glance back, like "but it's not like I hate you or anything". It's like everything you need to know in one simple clip.

Don't forget the swaying back and forth, as if she were enticing you to look to begin with.

True. So full of contradictions!


That aside, information about the Blu-Ray I mentioned earlier has been posted, and it includes the aforementioned bedsheet (pretty NSFW). Sold!

Erg, so nice, but I really don't think I can justify the price. Hopefully it won't sell out before I can detail out my expected cash flows for the year, which probably won't be until the end of the week or next weekend.

I'm sold on her. She's got a strong personality and a strong voice. (The chest doesn't hurt either.)

I also want to know more about that dark-skinned girl in the OP, just because.
