e25:
-Shoe-goiiiii Lovestruck
-Is "plump, moist, luxurious" talking about Nikkaidou's lunch or him? Laughing
-I think Nikkaidou is rich enough to just sponsor a tournament where he and Rei just face off against each other again and again
-The imagined tournament with heartrending black and white freeze frames though rofl
-That's a p good Rei impression Nikkaidou
-"Look at him blushing, the ninny. God help me, that's cute." rofl
-"Just leave him be, Nikkaidou. It's funnier this way." AMEN
-Oh, it's not The Duck Sad
-Akari's towel hair ^______^
-I miss my ofuro Sad
-DON'T YOU DARE THROW ROCK CANS AT LITTLE REI  Angry
-Every Small Rei flashback is brutal Sad
-No the rest of your life won't be like this the weather is warming up nowwwww
-See you can go over for hamburger steak Happy tears
-NO WHAT DID THEY DO TO HINA
-KILL THEM, REI
e26:

(Prelude: I need y'all to imagine me watching this at an outdoor table in a tiny African village during downtime. Some small girls came by and watched March Lion with me despite not speaking English so I had to give a running narration in French. I will relay their commentary as well. )
-NOOO HINA WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO YOU
-"Tsk, she hasn't done her hair at all." (re: Hina's pigtails)
-THESE BITCHES
-These kids ain't ever seen anime before and there's not even electricity in this village but immediately when it went to Chiho & Hina as smaller kids: "Oh, she's remembering when they were younger. It's a flashback." The language of film is universal, no one is safe from anime Uh-oh
-Damn this teacher toooo
-"They put her shoe in the toilet? You can't even get it back! Her mom is going to beat her so bad when she comes home with one shoe!" ...no y'all that's not the point of what's happening Uh-oh
-FUCK YES HINA BEAT THAT GIRL TO A PULP
-The little girls loled and loled at Momo's crying
-"Look at her run! Hahaha she's running like a boy!"
-You are so correct to not regret it, Hina. That is how you become a good adult.
-Oh my god. Hina holding her hand out to little Rei and big Rei repaying her. Happy tears
-Taking her to the library because HE nominally needs help with something. Rei knows how to do. Nod
-Yessss and then look up highly topical and emotionally resonant bugs while she looks at candy, CORRECT
-Fuck, the ladybug name origin. THAT made me want to tear up about as much as Rei's attack of feels while Hina cried.
-Coming home to that warm house. Heart
-Ojisan!! Yes! Heap praise on your excellent and courageous granddaughter!!
-"Ewww, why are they eating with sticks?!"
-Seriously though that dinner montage. So cozy. It was like being wrapped in an afghan.
e27:

-Sensei is ready to kill for Rei Laughing
-"I'm a professional at that. I've been eating lunch by myself for over 11 years." rofl....Sad
-I am glad teach gets a moment or two of dignified helpfulness in between all his sugoi eyes and heart bubbles, which are frankly adorable. "DIVING INTO THE ATMOSPHERE OF ADOLESCENCE!!"
-Uh Rei how is winning a bunch of money going to stop bullies?
-Oh I see, tutors and lawyers (lawyers! Laughing)
-Please invite Nikkaidou to burn in the flames of passion with you.
-"Rei doesn't seem to be getting fluffy at all." No, only internally Heart
-Speaking from experience: grandpa is so right.
-"Is curry all right for dinner?" Happy tears
-Ahaha don't take grandpa seriously, Rei
-The little Rei cat is pretty sweet. Heart
-But is this supposed to be setting up Rei and Hina as a possible couple? Cause I mean... she's like 12 or 13... and he's 18... and... well... scratch
e28:

-This shogi match is a little too romantic for comfort
-Rei enlisted Baseball Bro?? Heart
-No, Hina. They are not gonna write on your desk. Not without you and the whole baseball team going Hundred-Man Guts on them.
-You missed. The ball went past her head.
-Everyone who doesn't suck has positive memories of Chiho Heart
-Yesssss Hina beat the crap out of them follow the mad dog let it whisper in your ear Uh, violence solves nothing
-This teacher is a punk-ass bitch who doesn't seem to have any idea what she's doing, has she never seen adolescents misbehave before? Hina handled it like a champ though
-Damn right Hina's angry and she's going to make rivers of blood run through that school stairwell Erased-style

S2E8/30:

-Sensei's ready to beat up Hina's teacher Laughing
-Rei has to fucking hold him back rofl
-opening up to Hayashida-sensei how useless he feels
-he thinks he still counts as a total stranger to the Kawamotos?? Sad
-and then Hayashida smacks him and makes fun of him for acting like it's not his teacher's job to give advice rofl
-the way Akari tells him so calmly about their dad but he still gets how she's feeling
-"Hina's friend's former homeroom teacher" rofl
-Monster teacher rofl rofl rofl Hayashida-sensei is both comedy gold and heartwarming supportive adult figure gold in this episode
-oh no, Nikaidou! And just when Rei's getting determined to give him his perfect rival showdown Sad
-"If you ask me and I can't answer, there must be a reason" No
-Tiny Nikaidou with that giant energetic frown!!
-Shimada realizing what kind of person the little "spoiled rich kid" really is
-the worst thing to Nikaidou is being someone people would go easy on, this kid
-he doesn't want Rei to know b/c he doesn't want it to affect his playing and harm his rival-ability. This kid!
-OMG, Rei crying over Nikaidou's game sheet, then going stone-cold determined that he's going to get to the finals to be the rival he needs. I love all these people so much! Please don't die, Nikaidou! Sad

Isn't this E29, not 30?

Is it just me, or has this season been way more of a rollercoaster of feelings? I can't tell if last season felt slower and more gradual because it was, or because I've gotten used to the pace now so it doesn't feel as slow, or b/c I've gotten to care more about the characters and thus anything that happens is more of an emotional hit.

Ep 31

Spoiler:

- Finally, happiness!
- Pork-cutlet cubes!
- Oh, there it goes.
- The voice and look on this Yamazaki guy rofl
- Thaaaat music when Rei starts going to smash him
- Nikaidou's advice from the past got through to Rei ;_;
- And he won :_;
- And Nikaidou saw it ;_;
- Still can't really get into this bullying arc, just beat the shit out of the other girls until the fear of getting their youthful faces smashed in stays their hand. Hina's already been left out in the cold by everyone, there's really nothing to lose in that situation, so make the popular kids suffer too

S2E9/31:

-I really associate the OP singer's voice with this show, I feel like if I heard her in some totally unrelated context, I'd instantly find myself in gentle shogi world
-it's a little awkward, but not a bad way to translate the katsu pun
-oh no, school trip, I'm scared for Hina No
-the metaphor-snow coming down while Hina says she has to go or she'll regret it
-he has to win to fight as hard as Hina and Nikaidou, I find that surprisingly touching
-the giant, dramatic music, looks about 50, deep-voiced opponent rofl
-omg, Nikaidou's opponent knew he couldn't win and kept him going till he collapsed!! KILL HIM, REI!!! KILL HIM
-that black-and-white shot of his face and the abstract bit after was gorgeous
-Hearing Nikaidou's voice in his head, I wanted to smile at this but I'm kind of scared of what it means about Nikaidou
-he won by loving people that much  Happy tears
-NIKAIDOU!
-Ha! When Hina was having stomach pains, I was totally thinking Shimada would come into it! Grin
-she is clearly not curled up in a little ball in that image Disapproving
-dramatically racing to bring Hina the best stomach medicine ever Laughing
-we're back in Anime Kyoto Shiny/thrilled
-he finds her by remembering what it's like to be alone on a school trip Sad
-she throws herself into his arms sobbing Happy tears
-he's totally being the adult he wishes someone was for him

Spoiler:
I don't think that would help a kid like Hina, especially since she did beat the one kid up already and it didn't seem to make her feel better (it was incredibly satisfying to watch, though Lurking/sketchy) I think the real problem isn't that they're being mean to her - we haven't even seen them doing anything on this trip - it's that they're excluding and rejecting her, and she can't smash their faces into wanting her around. If she's the girl they're mean to or the girl they're scared to be mean to, she's still alone and surrounded by people who want to be mean to her.

Shogi 32

That feel when...

Spoiler:

... you're supposed to dislike the guy who played Nikkaidou's health out but then you end up identifying with him more than anyone in the show so far and want him to kill them all WHY DO YOU DO THIS SHOGI

- "Fucking normies" while he just wants to play shogi and tend to his pigeons
- I like to think they realized that they were three seconds away from him massacring them with his scary aura rofl
- His favourite pigeon never came home Sad
- He can barely drag himself up the mountain to throw himself into the water, Rei and Nikkaidou do it all the time with dat youthful passion
- NIKKAIDOU
- FUCKING
- SMILES
- If he died on the Shogi board, he'd be happy
- Sent him a bouquet from his garden and has a bit of that fire back
- Silver came home. RIP my heart
- Nikkaidou swearing he won't lose again.
- First they fuck my shit up, then they put us back on the river with Hina again.
- Rei memorized her itinerary immediately x)
- A lot of eating and happy
- "A celebratory match? With Souya?" OH. SHIT.
- OH.
- SHIT.

S2E10/E32
Spoiler:

-deep-voiced guy's platitude gradually getting more realistic and less catchy Laughing
-turning the drinking buddies' questions back on them Laughing
-Yes! Stock questions that get personal and make wrong or awkward assumptions while still wanting you to keep it stock are the worst and make you want to kill everyone with your aura! I want to be disagreeing with Deep-voice about everything for what he did to Nikaidou, but he's making it hard Sad
-young Deep-voice still has those scarily intense eyes! I love the way this show still captures the essence of characters' looks even when they're younger!
-the sinking shogi board
-and that metaphorical leap off the cliff, shogi is always hell in this show
-it's funny how his corrected platitude at the start adds in all kinds of extra factors, but it's the 'belief' of the original cliche that he's struggling with and that lets Rei and Nikaidou keep flinging themselves easily off the cliff
-Nikaidou looking like hell but then that badass smile on his face
-He sent his hydrangeas
-and the bird came back  Happy tears
-Hina and Akari are so excited and frantic about the desserts rofl
-and grandpa just goes ahead and gets three of his
-and then when they're stuffed they're trying to blame Rei and Grandpa Laughing
-Hina's so happy and everyone else is so excited about it while Momo's just fighting with the package Laughing
-that's so sweet he brought her gentle foods to eat, Rei thinks of everything!
-HE BEAT DEEP-VOICE! YES!
-Holy shit, SOUYA NEXT WEEK!

Berserk's Kentaro Miura drew Yamazaki from Ep 32. She also drew an alternate cover of Berserk (THAT'S MISLEADING AS HELL AND SHE SHOULD FEEL BAD)

Apparently Miura has asked Chika Umino (pen name of the March Lion writer) advice for writing female characters before.

I ship it

Oh god. From an interview that Miura and a few others did talking about her


Mori: Ahh, the time she got angry after I called her “Frieza-sama”.

Hoshi: Yes. She was even angry on twitter as well (laughs).

Miura: What’s this?

Hoshi: Well, during the after-party of the Hakusensha party, we were all talking about manga whilst drinking.

Mori: Then Umino-sensei said “for 3-gatsu, I’m still in third gear”.

Hoshi: She’s still nowhere near using the top gear with 3-gatsu.

Mori: She said she was yet to use the fourth and fifth gear, so we were all quite startled.

This isn't even Frieza-sama's final form

S2E12/E34:

-new op song, each one's more cheerful than the last.  I miss the old voice, though
-that awful teacher sounds panicky even just when her chalk goes missing, how has she survived being a teacher all this time (oh wait, by blaming the kids who get bullied  Lurking/sketchy)
-what a sensitive and yet on-top-of-things kid Hina is, that she's picked up that it's the same mood that's making them bully her that's got them going for the teacher, and just tries calmly to help. Whereas I'm just kind of like  NOW WHO'S GOT THE NEGATIVE ATTITUDE, ASSHOLE!
-damnit, I knew they were going to try to pin it on her
-Fuck, yeah, Hina calls out the bully and scares the shit out of her! She's going to be a total badass by the time this is over. Shiny/thrilled
-teacher freaking out in front of the entire class
-and now she's going after the bully-girl like some kind of avenging corpse, what the fuck
-holy fuck, I did not see that coming (though, that totally happened at my school, except more with general trouble-making than bullying, and the teacher that flipped out grabbed a student by the neck and slammed him into a locker Uh-oh)
-Yes! New teacher actually doing something!
-and Hina still feels like she did something wrong Sad
-Akari fixes things with delicious food, of course she does Laughing
-omg, the carrots shaped like stars  Heart
-Akari faces down Demon Grandpa rofl
-her determined smile at the end
-she's so worried about failing on the promise she made to her dying mom Sad
-Fucking evil bully mom
-nooo don't play her game, Akari, proof is a distraction! No
-Hina protecting and comforting Akari, this kid  Feeling loved
-This fucking badass kid
-New teacher gets it Nod
-new ending animation is really pretty

-"will something good come of it if we keep living?"  Shocked Where did that come from, bully?

Re: March Comes In Like a Lion [Anime]

Watched these in a bunch last week and forgot to note anything, so general impressions:

eps 29-35:

-Of course he’s into Akari. Everyone is into Akari. We’ve all been waiting for him to catch up.
-There is a very romantic edge to all these interactions with Hina, but actual relationships can be complicated and tinged with inappropriate overlapping feelings, so Shrug
-Sensei’s heart eyes about
-Nikaidou is a champ for concealing his illness.
-Rei crying in the bathroom because of how it feels to have friends was pretty heart-punching.
-Also this mountain-climbing man? Wanna see him engaged in psychological showdown with Hostess-Mode Akari
-I feel you, Hina, I sat in that exact same spot on the riverbank in Kyoto feeling lonely on a school trip two years ago.
-Pigeon training bald man was pretty compelling. I would like to see more of him.
-The resolution of that bullying situation was surprisingly realistic for a happy ending. The nominal authority being too weak to break the cycle before it breaks them, the primary perpetrators not giving a fuck even when punished cause they’re mentally wrecked, the collaborators repenting their cowardice afterwards. I am glad it didn’t have a facile ending with the bully girl, like, sincerely apologizing to and making up with Hina.
-Sakura’s letter from the psychological rehab center Sad (but also FUCK, what a lucky kid to have access to such a thing)
Enail wrote:but why do all her friends' last names begin with K, is there some kind of rule??...Even Rei, too! Uh-oh
I figured it’s cause they have alphabetical seating/assigned study groups or something, so all the kids close together alphabetically spend the most time around each other? Can’t explain Rei though Uh-oh
e36:

-Poster quality inferiority complex Laughing
-To be fair, that’s a nice-looking poster.
-That still of Shimada and Yana while the Eiffel tower is being built rofl
-Anyone else dying to know what Souya had playing in those earbuds? Is it just ambient drone? The screams of children? The sound of a glacier cracking slowed down to trippy dimensions? Ludwig Van?
-Onsen Wink wink nudge nudg
-Nope Rei is too lame to go for it, no onsen hijinks.
-What a good answer, though, Souya. What kind of flow can be created between snow and water?
-Souya walking that fine line between charming eccentricity and actually having something wr— nope something is seriously wrong
-Blood red wine all over a white suit, what a light touch this imagery has
-I like imagining that the chairman is entirely accustomed to wrangling Souya like a naughty child when he walks around with spaghetti sauce on his face, but also, Sad
-“Barely holding on to his human form”… ALERT REI ALERT ALERT WATCH YOURSELF
-What is that cool grey puff ball on Souya’s clothes? Enail-sama Princess of the Moonspeak, can you explain?
-I am unreasonably excited about this shogi match.
-That drawing of Akari at the end of the preview made me a little nauseous Uh-oh

But that's like 1/5th of the class all beginning with K! Highly suspicious, if you ask me Razz

Argh, I was 90% of the way through E36/S2E14, and I accidentally deleted my comments! Bleargh. Also, new episode keep not being out yet when I want to watch Disgruntled

Spoiler:

-Shimada and whassisname's pathetic near-death match roflrofl
-we didn't get an onsen episode Sad
-shogi demon barely holding on to his human form, suuuper-evocative, even though I'm not exactly sure what it's evoking, it's the feeling of a mystery you can't quite put your finger on what the question is
-Re: the grey puffball, I've never seen one like that before, but I think it's just a poofy tassle style of decorative tie for the over-robe.
-the way Souya's drawn like he's not part of the same world as Rei as he sits down for the match
-Werel, omg, yes, that picture of Akari is so wrong

E37/S2E15
Spoiler:

-a gorgeous kimono from a special collection and it's Souya wearing it that makes it a family heirloom
-I still miss the voice of the old OP singer even though the new song's cheerfulness is growing on me
-the match as conversation
-his body knows a wrong move before his brain does
-playing against ethereal snow, he enters a river-flow state where everything connects. I love the way this show gradually changed the meaning of water on us
-Moonspeak notes: when he's talking about how he can't see Souya's train of thought at all the way he can other opponents, the word they translate as "draw a blank" is "pure white," which is the same word he uses to say it felt like they were playing in a pure white room. And, this is more my interpretation, but I think you could say the word has a hint of a feeling of a blizzard white-out implied (some words using the character for "white" originally got their meanings from allusions to snow), making a new set of connections for Souya's snow metaphor, adding in both obscurity, and also that comfortable-but-mysterious feeling of light while they were playing; snow as a screen that can block but also illuminate. This author is really fucking good.
-that little nod Souya gives that's barely more than a blink
-The light in his fingertips, that feeling of flow and shock is what Souya's got Shiny/thrilled
-Souya's completely out of it again, what is this??
-ohhhh he's deaf! I did not see that coming. But it works really well with the white-out blizzard idea how silent it is in snow. Except, he started out answering the reporters questions okay, does that mean he was just correctly guessing what they'd ask until he got thrown off track, or did he have his hearing aid cut out or something? Maybe he's only partially deaf.
-that end bit all really captured that feeling of an unexpected event where you're thrown together like you're in your own shared bubble outside the normal world for a few hours until the world resumes itself
-"it's like a god is quietly following me"

That was a really good episode!

E37

Spoiler:

- Mannn, that little jolt of electricity when Rei knows he lost the game
- And before Rei was drowning in water, now he's finding solace and comfort in it. Down's a whole bottle and just starts flowing
- God, the match review. They barely speak, Souya just nods his head when he lost, and then "Yup, that's what it's like." He just taught Rei how to use his chakra.
- And Souya is drawn like he's not quite of the same world as everyone else.
- WHAT
- HE'S DEAF
- Rei constantly trying to not drop his spaghetti around senpai
- Thaaaaaat still moment in the rain
- It sounds like from the episode preview that Souya's hearing comes and goes?

That's probably the exact interpretation being meant

Spoiler:

-the dark hotel room with the rain outside making pale shadows
-"he didn't mind the silence"  :/  
-little Rei in a hat is adorable
-people having fun with the idea that Souya's an eccentric genius when really he just has no idea what they're saying, that's such an incredibly lonely image
-Rei aging visibly when the Chairman's asking if he's lying about being a young person Laughing
-the classroom going distant with that snow/ice-falling pattern like Souya has
-Akari's little lesson about how delicious the food she made is Laughing
-omg I don't think I've ever wanted an egg so badly, she's too good at this
-Shimada gets it
-NIKAIDOU!!!
-now metaphor-snow starts falling when he thinks of how upset Nikaidou must be
-Rei waits for him  Feeling loved
-Nikaidou's so-happy-he-might-burst-into-tears-or-his-head-might-explode expression
-his opponent's so upset he beat him like that after worrying about him so much rofl
-his eyes and the sparkles and flowers around his head Laughing
-holy shit, I'm not sure we've ever seen Rei laugh like that before, he's so happy Nikaidou's so Nikaidou  Lovestruck
