Evirus vs Yukiho

Sunday, October 9th, 2011

No quarrel with the summary at Karmaburn, but note how Yukiho ended at the bottom. And in my opinion it is deserved. I think the main attraction of the game Yukiho was in the challenge of managing her growth. It is a story unto itself. Someone could’ve made a cour-sized love story anime out of it, or a movie. But in the TV version we got 1 episode with grotesque, unattractive characterization, and then the focus moved on to other characters, whom the director liked more (hello, Miki).

The new season is truly upon us: we get a new opening! New challenges await, too, as 961 makes a long-expected move.

I had some pretty bad problems with language in this episode. For example, I failed to understand just what levers Kuroi used against Namco. Not that it matters much, but still… not cool.

Yukiho’s book was a mystery to me too. It appears to be a stage play, called “Cosette’s Lover” (「コゼットの恋人」). The title feels like it has to be familiar, but I cannot quite remember.

Also! Haruka restarted the new season with many references to ep.1. It was cute.

ANN reported the sequel (via). And yet, no Sacred Blacksmith (stuck over the manga).
