Spoiler for My commentary of episode 11:
The tidbit I highlighted is something I toooootally agree with. It's like... that entire scene was sort of shrugged off and it took away from Houou's character as a whole (made him seem like he was a pushover/no big deal). I'm sure it wasn't intentional, but boy, was it lame.

On a separate note, the quality of the animation (as in how the characters move and the fluidity of their movements, not the style) in certain parts of the episode was kind of poor compared to the rest. Especially the last couple of minutes. What the fuck was that? I mean, really now...

Spoiler for Putting this in spoiler tags just incase:

Spoiler for Houou-sama:


Emonzaemon-sama's poses were indeed quite different than usual, giving off more chest, per say. Hahaha . Although I thought the animations on Dokutou Mekki and Emonzaemon's gun-firing rape-ism were good. I just love his Arm movement there. <3
Man it is hard to favour two characters who are like polar opposites like red and blue.
Oh yeah, and when the falling animation was a bit weird, nothing epic like Pengins. PPPPPPEEEEEEENNNNNNNGGGGGGIIIIIIIINNNNNNN!!! D:

Of course, as obsessive as I am, I must add my wishes to those of a -something something-.
Spoiler for My mourning of loss:

Eh, I would explain but I'm feeling lazy. Well, it got the general message across/delivered the story effectively enough. That's the most important thing. Not that big of deal. Not like I can change it or anything. =_=

But that's the only scene I had the problem with, really. The animation in the rest of the episode is fine.

Never gonna forget Pengin. So... freaking... adorable... that hair... fffffffffff! <333

Spoiler for Pengin:

why is nobody mourning for togame? you are all just crying about houou and pengin, do u know that nothings gonna happen to her in the end?
i rly cant take it anymore, in good animes far to many main characters die (saber, maybe lelouch, kamina etc...)

Yeah, this is the exact same reason I wasn't exactly like "OMG IECNBUOWBEUBDCUWBEC" @ Togame. Already knew about it, already had time to rage and be upset over it. XD I didn't know how Pengin was gonna go, so when I saw that I was just...

Next episode will probably make me cry regardless, though.

Might I recommend Kimi ni Todoke? A truly phenomenal anime imo. I literally cried every other episode of the first season (second is coming soon); but this NOT because it is a sad anime, it's actually light-hearted with a bit of comedy in there. It's because it replicated my own life so closely that it hurt my heart to watch the main character go through that. The whole time I was like "GASP! That's me! BAAAAAAAW." >_< That aside, it's romantic, sweet, and innocent. Give that a go, perhaps.

Back on topic, I am hungrily awaiting english subs for epi 11!

but yeah I found out the ending before the show even aired in January,so I guess it softens the blow.

Actually, KnT isn't a shoujo. I can see why people would categorize it as such, but It's kind of just a general romance story (sort of like Fruits Basket; people often say it's a girly anime, but it's actually pretty general, it just happens to attract mostly girls). As for shounen romance, I wasn't even aware that sort of genre existed so I have no idea what anime even qualify as that. Eh.

Any way, I think you're out of luck. There aren't many anime like Spice & Wolf or Katanagatari with subtle/light romantic undertones. When the anime of Gosick comes out, I think you'll enjoy that, perhaps. But the main characters are younger, despite the adult tones present in the storyline. And we can all hope and dream for a Zaregoto anime, but I doubt it's happening. At least not any time soon, that is.

No, it is a shoujo title. Why one would even say it isn't is beyond me.

There's been shounen romance shows since the 80s . If you didn't even know about them, then you can't get away with saying Kimi ni Todoke isn't shoujo, when it obvious is. Could even get away with saying it's trademark shoujo.

But yeah off-topic post, so i apologize.

I finished watching the raw for ep 11, and I have a question about the Maniwas.

The Maniwas are a group of ninja each with unique battle styles, but their costumes resemble animals as well. I'm curious as to who is what animal. I know that:

1)Koumori--> Bat
2)Kamakiri--> Mantis
3)Chouchou--> Butterfly
4)Mitsubachi--> Bee
5)Kyouken--> Dog
6)Kawauso--> Otter
7)Umigame--> Seaturtle
8)Oshidori--> Duck
9)Pengin--> Penguin (Duh)
10) Houou--> Phoenix

Does anyone know what Ashigaru and Kuizame are supposed to be? I think it's a heron and shark, respectively, but I'm not sure. Anyone know?

You're basically correct.

I think you're thinking of Shirasagi when you say Ashigaru (that was the name of Chouchou's ninpou, actually); he was, in fact, a heron.

And as for Kuizame, I found this in a discussion on the Mazui subs site:

"Kuizame is a shark (shark = same, in the compound that is his name, the 'sa' sound changes to 'za')
kui is from the verb to eat (vulgar version of taberu)"
