What did they teach him only wall-head-butting and self-facepalming in the dojo?
And maybe if he had a clear head those would have been good options. There was more than enough stuff including her being a girl that could have distracted him. Besides doesn't seem like he's been in super religious practice since getting over to that country.

He wasn't exactly blushing and looking at her panties in that scene.

That's not what was distracting him. It's already been said here, but let me quote it again:

Quote:
The issues with Kujo's characterization between eps. 1-3 and eps. 4-5 may perhaps be explained by the fact that the first arc was from the first novel and the second arc was taken from the manga. Different medium = different character tropes. And while "wouldn't hit a girl" definitely suits Kazuya to a T, particularly for the time period, if he was going to be that stupid, then I'd wished he'd have at least thought it so we'd know why he was being foolish.

The novel/manga thing, I think, explains the most silly point, which is Kazuya wigging out about Kurairan's suggestion that Victorique wasn't real (since she kept vanishing from the library). I mean, after the boat episode where Victorique left the school, interacted with all the people on the Queen Berry, talked with various police officials on the arrest, etc., etc., it should be mind-numbingly obvious to him that Victorique is a real person. But in the manga, this is the first plot arc, in which Kazuya only just met Victorique and has never seen her outside the library, so the idea of her being a spirit/fairy/ghost/whatever makes more sense in that respect.

This ties in with my other idea about Kazuya's sudden "wuss moment"--that he was so shocked and taken aback by Kurairan's suggestion about Victorique that he couldn't react well. After all, here's a lonely kid, thousands of miles from home in an alien culture, shunned by many classmates, steeped in an atmosphere of ghosts and murder, who finds that one of his two only friends isn't what she claimed to be but is instead a villain, and is at the same time suggesting that his other friend isn't real either! Ergo, Kazuya goes into a fugue state (remember, stupid as that might sound, he's just a teenaged boy) and can't effectively fight back the way he could on the ship. And that makes a lot more sense if he doesn't have the background with Victorique from the first arc.
Essentially, considering it a flaw in the adaptation explains the issue nicely.

is there an explanation as to why those idiots took parts from the manga and parts from the novels, causing the show to be more stupid?

It's all one continuity, as I understand it, just each form of media (novels, light novels, and manga) covers stories from different times than the others. Now, why they decided to do the story arcs in this order I can't say. It doesn't make sense to have Avril's arc second, for reasons already stated. I cannot think of any justification at the moment for why they chose to do that.

It may be for dramatic effect. The boat arc was certainly more mysterious. And thank you for the explanation, it makes a lot more sense now and somewhat redeems the character in my eyes (if only ever so slightly).

For those who thought that GOSICK's opening and TTGL's opening sounded similar, here's some proof that they go so well together it's scary.

I'd be more impressed if the video wasn't edited. I can't imagine this kind of thing to be too uncommon with OPs if you do that.

It's not edited. What makes you think that it is? There are several of these on youtube and each of these look relatively the same.

yukirosuzuka is actually correct that the video itself is not edited from what the opening showed in sequence. I personally checked both the video and the opening and found nothing different.

its probably an inside joke between animators, lol. they went like - "this is just boring, lets make the animation sync with another song. and see how many ppl notice."

Many Thanks. Seem though the animation in gosick is just very "flexible", making the song fit in easier. But that's just my guess.
