Marimite S2 Ep.07 (official thread)

And so, the new year has begun. No more Youko-sama, Eriko-sama, and Sei-sama.

The anime didn't start off with Noriko's "Where is this? What year am I in?" Atsuko-san and Miyuki-san didn't even appear with Touko-chan...

Shimako, aka the new Rosa Gigantea is in melancholy...

I was impressed that they actually changed the OP shot of "Maria-sama no niwa ni...":

...Hey! Wait a minute! I understand Noriko should be there as she will soon become Shimako's soeur in the following episodes, but why is Touko-chan mingling with the Rosa Chinensis family!?

Yumi is worried about Shimako's melancholic atmosphere.

Yumi: "I was anticipating on something to happen with Sachiko-sama during the Spring break, but there was nothing..."
Hmm, a little foreshadowing of Yumi & Sachiko's soeur relationship in "Rainy Blue" here...

Yumi and Yoshino are classmates for the first time in thirteen years...and so are Tsutako-san and Mami-san!!! I hope they bring out Yamaguchi Mami out a little more (too bad this season won't get to Shimura Takuya's story)...oh, wait yes she does have an important part in the next episode! wa-i.

Nijou Noriko-chan makes her debut! Banza-i!! Hmm, she's a little bit more reserved than I expected from the novel. But Shimizu Kaori's voice seems to match her tone about "being different from the rest."

Noriko-chan and Shimako's initial contact underneath the cherry tree!! U...utsukushii... and had an aura of yuri-ness.

Sei-sama and Yumi at Lillian University cafeteria. Is it just me or does Sei-sama, (oops, I mean "Satou-san" ^^ awfully looks a LOT like Rei-sama after she cut her hair?

And more foreshadowing of "crumbling" Sachiko-Yumi soeur relationship...

Matsudaira Touko-chan debuts! Kugimiya Rie's voice acting is astonishing - it always amazes me how she is able to do Rizel from "Rizelmine" at one extreme and Alphonse Elric from "Fullmetal Alchemist" on the other...and her portrayal of Matsudaira Touko makes a stellar first impression. Hmm...I wonder how people who haven't read the novel will make on Touko-chan's first impression (I imagine it would be somewhat negative as most people who have read the novel as well....only to turn 180 degrees into one of the favorable characters later)

And we get to Noriko and Touko's encounter...minus Atsuko-san and Miyuki-san. As Touko-chan explains to Noriko who's who, Noriko realizes that the person she couldn't take her eyes off at the cherry tree was [the current] Rosa Gigantea.

Shimako seems to be happy now.

Noriko's background revealed..."How ironic that I am an avid admirer of Buddhist statues and temples, yet I am student of a Catholic high school"

Dang, the Shoguji temple is freaking huge than I imagined! And...Shimako's father makes his first appearance. Congratulations.

Yeah! Shimako in traditional Japanese kimono! M,moe~... And, by now you know what Shimako's secret: "I am a daughter of a Buddhist priest and temple, how contradictory that I attend a Catholic school."

And more yuri-like aura at the bus station...


Preview of next episode....rap-style!? "Ichou, Ichou! Sakura, Sakura!"

fufufu...Noriko and Shimako...

The current Sei reminds me of King from the King of Fighters arcade fighting game

It's funny though how she started completely effeminate, then became slightly unkempt after Shiori's incident, and finally became boyish after graduation

Not that I mind that look. I think it's sekushii

Is it just me or is there a continuity error at 7:48? I'm referring to Touko's scene where she's pointing out the Rosas to Noriko. In the distance shot, Sachiko was clearly between Shimako and Rei, but in the closeup Sachiko is now suddenly on the right with Rei in the middle. Noriko of course only had eyes for Shimako...

I really like Noriko's voice... I'm undecided on Touko and want to hear more of Touko's seiyuu before I figure out whether I like her or not.

Hehe, I thought she *was* Rei the first time I saw her in the previews. On repeat viewings, Sei's signature smirk clued me in. I'm going to miss wild-haired Sei... ;_;

Although this shot in the preview passes quickly, a very tall girl caught my eye. Looking at the hairstyle, it matches all of the Kanako fanart I've seen, and she towers over the rest of the students, so I am guessing this is probably her.

You don't like Touko? She is quite a troublemaker, isn't she?

This episode may be my best episode of Marimite ~Spring~ so far. The story behind Shimako and Touko is not less beautiful than Sachiko and Yumi, although I am still thinking why Shimako is doing that.

Regarding the preview, it looks that seiyuus are having fun, especially Sachiko's seiyuu. Quite outrageous from Lillian standard, but it is nevertheless very funny.

Sachiko is the one that sing the most in the preview, probably the Itou Miki-san is releasing the tension of playing serious voice ? ^^;

but after this episode, Shimako is glowing bright with with rose family's charm, more than before. her bored expression in the meeting also reminds me a lot of Sei, although less "don't try to go near me"

I'm sure a number of things in this episode are meant to mirror the last one -- from Shimako's gradual unattachment from the Yamayurikai, to how she and Noriko met underneath the Sakura tree (perhaps the same one where she saw Sei for the first time, one year earlier..). ^^

As for that probable first shot of Kanako that Portable mentioned, I saw a number of people on 2chan bring this up as well, and i think you may very well be right..

OMG! SACHIKO WAS RAPPING!!! XD XD XD!!!!!

*imagines Sachiko in hip hop clothes with a mic*

O_o;;;;

Seems like Touko is gonna stir trouble again, as Shimako and Noriko will get closer in a souer relationship to be.

Honestly, they should just name that Sakura tree 'White Rose Family Recruiting Place' or something ^^

if they do, all the eccentrics of Lillian would starts camping and waiting for the head of the white rose family and ambush her when she goes there ^^;

maybe then there'll be like three political parties in the school for each family

Are Buddhist monks in Japan under different restrictions from the norm? I mean celibacy, etc, etc.

Cause I can't imagine Shimako's father being a monk when she was born... o_O

It really depeds what sect of Buddhism. The most common sect over here doesn't require celibacy as far as I know.

OMG...I didn't expect Noriko's reaction would be so... blatant. I thought if she stared at Shimako for one more minute, she would start to drool.
