    Watched Golden Time 4... we're getting quite a few strong episodes this week. I'm glad for some of the story developments in the second part because oh man did I ever feel sorry for Chinami in the first half. I was wondering what role she would end up playing in this drama and its become quite clear.

    (Also, am I the only one amused by the fact "2D kun" also seems to be a Chinami fan? This show knows its audience.)

    Yeah, I expected a young Tomoe to cameo somewhere, possibly as a newbie waitress... then I realized she's be just a little young for it (13) and decided to go back and check if she was one of the schoolgirls.

    For me, the "yep it's her" moment was actually prior to her walking past in that screencap, specifically when she's having a conversation in the background while Satsuki is on the phone. First, as you probably know, Noto Mamiko's voice is quite distinct and I was able to make that out even with the low volume. Second, it's just barely possible to make out that her friend addresses her as Tomoe. Of course, being background conversation the subbers didn't bother with it.

    Teenage Tomoe walking by young mother Satsuki? That's what it looked like to me anyway. Well, teenage Tomoe and one of her friends.

    I agree that the horse and dragon were great. I think KnK 4's was somewhat misfortunate to air the day after.:h3h:

    Regarding the Hanasaku Iroha movie, one of the things that impressed me quite a bit was that thematically it serves quite well as a coda for the series. One of my few major gripes with HSI was that the ending sort of demphasized Ohana's growth, despite that seeming to be a central theme of the series. I think the franchise is way more effective with the movie included because of this.

    Did you get why I posted the screencap? I'm not sure Pocari did and I thought for sure he would have.

    I just loved all the cool, flashy, fantasy elements in it. Some of those you actually don't see all that often in modern anime (an elongated Orient-style dragon, people dramatically riding on a magical yet vaguely menacing horse, etc...).

    I didn't like one element of the Episode 2 twist, as you know, but this Episode 3 twist pretty much makes up for it. And yeah, it makes that Episode 2 flashback even funnier and more adorable.

    Plus, its not everyday that a love triangle resolves itself by two corners being more or less the same girl, so... both girls win!

    The ending twist managed to make that flashback even more adorable than it already was. Glad to hear you liked it as I suspected you might but wasn't sure if there would still be hard feelings over last week's twist.

    The climax does borrow a bit liberally from Raiders of the Lost Ark but it's good enough I didn't even notice that the first time around.

    I thought the climactic fight was pretty incredible - well choreographed and the blended CG and conventional actually looked quite good IMO - not something I would necessarily have predicted after the hummers in episode 1. 8bit might be establishing themselves as someone to watch here - granted, they worked on the Macross F movies and Aquarion Evol, but those were collaborations with Satelight (which is where a lot of their staff originate from). I don't think stuff like Infinite Stratos and Walkure Romanze has really given them the chance to shine like this.

    Yeah, Tokyo Ravens Episode 3 was fantastic. Wonderful climatic action scene for the first arc, and lovely twist at the end of the episode.

    So I spotted something in Hanasaku Iroha Home Sweet Home:
    Spoiler for Hanasaku Iroha: Home Sweet Home screencap:


    Granted, I didn't spot it while I was actually watching it... I thought they might do something like this and that scene was an obvious candidate so I went back and checked.

    Got to raise a glass to the Tokyo Ravens team, they completely and utterly nailed this week's episode.

    Well, okay, cup of orange pekoe. Still counts, right?
