Bah, got distracted tonight and didn't have time to grab the episode til just now. Ah well, grabbing it now, hopefully will have time to watch before needing sleep.


Looking forward to the subs again, and to next weeks episode as well.

The last two episodes have been really quite fun to watch. I was on pins and needles all week for this one to come out.


And on a different note, one thing that's been somewhat bothering me have been the next episode previews. They've been way too serious and unfunny lately. Where's the tsukkomi?

Ah, well.

Lesca 2009-01-24 11:10

Another good episode.

Spoiler for Ep4:

LOL, I still like it whenever Sachiko does that "I'm gonna kill you" stare.

Spoiler for Why?:

This time, I'm greatly pleased. Dang right SUPERB!

Yay, Maria-sama is getting better and better! I was highly anticipating this episode, and overall very satisfied. There's a few scenes that are unfortunately dropped from the anime, but given the time constraints the animators have been doing a very good job.

Kaoru Chujo 2009-01-24 14:18

Let's make it unanimous: great episode. I thought Yoshino seemed irresponsibly desperate in working that charade with Nana, but it was funny, and almost understandable, and Nana and the destiny part of it more than make up for any problems.

Let's not just say "seiyuu are really something" for NABATAME Hitomi playing both Eriko and Nana. Let's say: "Naba-sama is really something." She is. She is also one of the best-known of a group of seiyuus who pretend (?) to be gay in real life. She and Itou Shizuka (Rei) recently had a full wedding ceremony. To each other. There's info and pics in this post. Naba-sama debuted as Arcueid Brunestad in Tsukihime, and is also Nobue-oneesan in Ichigo Mashimaro, as well as having been Ryouko in Ryouko's Case File.

Speaking of seiyuus, I have made a page with pics of all the characters and their seiyuus. Also includes who is which Rose and who is her soeur, etc. Information that I can't keep straight, even if all of you can, lol. I haven't yet included info as to who are the new soeurs, which many of you know and others can now guess. Just for fun, here is an older group shot of most of the main cast, along with a head shot of Nabatame Hitomi, who is not in the group shot:

front (l-r): Ikezawa Haruna (Yoshino), Ueda Kana (Yumi), Itou Miki (Sachiko), Noto Mamiko (Shimako). back row: Itou Shizuka (Rei), Satou Rina (Tsutako), Saitou Chiwa (Mami), Shimizu Kaori (Noriko), Toyoguchi Megumi (Sei).

Last, here is a page with info about the Pizza Hut promotion for this show. Specially marked pizza boxes will enable people to get special wallpapers and other Marimite goods. Somehow I don't see great commonality between the fans of Code Geass and the fans of Marimite, but whatever.

Spoiler for episode 4 and next preview:

Looks like the Maria-sama Pizza Hut campaign will be back- Feb 9 to Mar 8. We might be seeing more pizza eating from the girls. :heh:

Molenir 2009-01-24 17:25

One thing I noticed from the preview, is Kashiwagi spending more time with Yuuki. Seeing that, I really hope they don't go the Yaoi route with him. I know a lot of girls love the boys love stuff, but I find it just gross. Let Yuuki be normal!

Spoiler for quoted spoiler:


Proto 2009-01-24 19:12

^ I bet $10 for double standards :p

bakaneko16 2009-01-25 04:11

really great episode i must say that i will really miss sachiko and yumi, and its kinda sad to think that sachiko is graduating --- am i thinking of the future much? :confused:

anyways its pretty obvious that yoshino has already a potential soeur,

my bet on Yumi's soeur

Spoiler for soeur:

dont know its a spoiler but im guessing :p

Shiroth 2009-01-25 07:27

Spoiler for Episode 04:

Another 10 from me.

Molenir 2009-01-25 10:07


That's a lot of fangirls at the tea-party. Shame the Inoue Marina girl will never appear again.
She appears in the preview for the next episode. So we'll probably see her in episode 5 at least.

The only common denominator is Amisuke (of course, Ami Koshimizu, being Kallen and Kanako). :D

Spoiler for Don't wanna say this but...:

Indeed you're correct. I missed her in the preview. :heh:

dream-seeker 2009-01-25 16:50

Except for my slow computer. The Anime is good and the story for Ep 4 is excellent. I'm very surprised to see Touko and Kanako together though. I kinda notice the little change this season from the previous 3. Looks like there were a lot of jokes and funny scenes coming our way. But what I like the most on this episode was the priceless look on Sachiko. It shouts like "you don't belong here little girl" or "get out!". LOL I wonder, if she was normal she probably have dive down and kill the rookie. And here I thought Yumi was the most permeable one. Looks like she rubbed some charms on her Onee-sama.

Oppius 2009-01-25 17:59

Argh! That damn Pizza Hut cameo!!!

Sorrow-K 2009-01-25 19:50

Two words for this episode: Oh Yoshino...

They've already put a bit of emphasis on the similarities between Eriko and Nana, but whether giving them the same seiyuu really labours the point is a worthwhile question. I guess we'll find out in due time. The interesting, recent comparison was in Allison & Lillia, where Mizuki Nana voiced both of the title characters, which I thought came at a detriment, since it really stunted Lillia's capacity to forge an individual character. She was always kinda stuck in Allison's shadow, and because of that she came off as a less interesting and exciting version of Allison.

Yoshino really provided a lot of entertainment in this episode. She's really stubborn, yet she squirms a lot when she's against a wall. I loved her train of thought during this episode. She kept jumping to conclusions that were completely wrong, but she was so desperate to avoid losing to Eriko (I was amused that she referred to her as her "eternal rival") that she managed to convince herself that they weren't just plausible, but certain. It would have been much easier just to face up to things, but Yoshino fell into a trap that's pretty easy to fall into. I really sympathized with Yoshino and how she ran away from reality just to stubbornly keep face. I thought to myself "yes, I've done this in my younger and more foolish days".

Shigan 2009-01-25 20:56

Oh did I lol at this episode xD.

Aaahahahahaa, Nana showing her uniform to Yoshino was gold. So many wrong associations XD. Apparently the way to score Yoshino is to hold up a rosario in a saint-ish pose while wearing a baggy jumper. Oh well :D

aaaand we get to see Yumi in a fashionable hairstyle next episode <3!
