Oh I'm sure most of us knew it was going to happen. Just the way it happened, the lay out, the development was bothersome. It was too preordained. It's like it happened because of the hero you chose to favor....

you have to blame the ancient human myths, they always have to have a villain that could match a hero, a yang to a ying, a pope to an antipope.

i guess people figured if you keep winning with no challenge, it'll be boring.

well sure, if you got GOD mode on all the time, yeah.

but everyone finds it more fun when you got the ALL_WEAPONS mode.....

You can still keep winning and have fun.

Hmm...God Mode or All Weapons Mode! Hard choice. How about all cheats mode!

er...no.

you might find all cheat mode fun for a while, but it get dulls and you end up simply walking about with not a care in the world.

It might be good if your in a rush to finish a game you just want to see to the end, but seriously all_weapon cheat is the one you need.

Nothing like the little bit of fear knowing you can still die, yet have a fire power to kill anything in your sight, fast.

mind you, dunno how you can apply that to a sports anime, i mean unless its like HAJIME NO IPPO, dear haruhi.

now that was a GAR-SPORTS anime, your like in round 7 and ippo's all bruised he can hardly stand, then just at the last moment though SHEER GAR, fights back and hits his enemy weak point, the nthe Music plays and he blurrs as instinct kicks in and he pounds his opponent into the floor, before the ref lifts his arm in thr air as the bell rings and he pass out holding the victory POSE. GAAARRRRR!!!

*gasp in exhilaration*



er.....don't think it happen with moe tamaki and the finest of kendo matches.

well it somewhat was preordained seeing as Rin was quite clearly meant to be Tama's only rival in the series, and another girl Tama can plow over doesn't make for a particularly good rival.

frankly i dont know how the way it turned out could've been a surprise as it was pretty much set up 2 episodes ago.

you knew Rin was going to be good
you knew last ep already Tama was probably going to lose

the only real surprise up their sleeve was how good Rin really was, which they pulled a fairly nice trick with Rin's kamae being jodan which was already established long ago as basically being the the kryptonite to Tama otherwise superman-ness.

i suspect the foreshadowing had less to do with them knowing Tama would lose. it was meant more to accent, and make somewhat ominous, how much the team had come to depend on Tama and expect her to clean up the matches they're in. they expected her victory to be a foregone conclusion, which in turn foreshadows the eventual fall since such a dependence that would come back to bite anyone whether its sports, academics, politics...

given what they were working with, it was developed about as well as it could have been given yes, you knew at some point, there was going to be someone to rival Tama in kendo as a challenge to the main characters has to pop up eventually. that alone is simply a basic principle of storytelling.

Oh FFS *runs off and commits seppaku*

No not with a knife but Leona in No Sound style. I'll buy who ever I was arguing against a pint in the London Expo that is coming up

*sob*

Grumble grumble grumble

Spoiler for thoughts to epi22 which I haven't seen yet:


By the way when I asked earlier why do sensei 1 and 2 want Tama to lose and no one answered with specific show driven reasons. Sensei 2 is really easy:

He lost in the final. He got hung up on losing. He only snapped out of it 5+ years later after fighting Tama. He expects Tama to react in the same way he did.

well the funniest part in these episode is that rin and tama met before the match and talk about braver - shinaida anime stuffs and they tried to make it to the real world. lolz. it is like.....

A:"hey, mikuru is the best, I will gonna teach you that"
B:"nah nagato yuki is the best, I will show you"



usually, when a rival meets each other, they don't say that:P.

i like how you talk about "transfer" of ability.

I don't really see how a great kendo wielder can transfer her experience and skill into karaoke.

if that was true, i wonder if i can transfer my experience surfing the internet for hard to find downloads into playing a real guitar, instead of jumping about thumbing a toggle and wanking the neck on a plastic ukulele to little electric dots on TV?

I'm on about transfer of experiences. For example I slap you across the face you know it will hurt your face. I don't then need to slap your arse for you to realise that it will also hurt your arse if I did that.

For example they kinda covered it in the shop scene. Tama in there bricking it. She thinks to herself if she had her armour and Shinai she would not feel that way.

All these things we do add up. From a positive PoV a person who does lots of pub room karaoke should feel a lot more confident when standing in front of their peers at work in a meeting. Thats what I mean about transfer of experiences.

Tama experienced loss 2 times, so far being bully girl's match and the BB karaoke competition, but the writers have deemed her unable to learn from these other life experiences and she must get beaten by a girl who preaches that losing makes you stronger.

You know if you take this to the pre-kendo days; me thinks that the lesson is losing leaves you missing a limb at the best, and losing your life at the worst.
