Yasuna finally reveals her secret of not being able to see boys in this episode and it culminates to the kiss sequence that was in the first episode. This should probably revise some opinions on Yasuna hating.

I don’t really feel like going into the drama of this episode, but I have to say it’s done pretty good, with the build-up paced well. The impact of the kiss is also felt, and Yui Horie is strutting some serious muscle here with her Yasuna too. It’s been such a long time (first time,maybe?) that I’ve seen in this roles.

Personally for me, I’m pretty happy with the pace the show is progressing, and after this part, there should be quite some funny and more lighthearted parts to come, if they follow the manga, which coincidentally at the latest chapter I’m reading (Ch. 17) has taken a turn for the serious.

Asuta is really at the short end of the stick here though, but I really can’t blame him. If I’d were him, I’d be hitting on Hazumu too ;). The usual humour providers are doing their jobs well too, though I’m really seriously disturbed by Hazumu’s perverted father =.= .

    Oh c’mon…. Yasuna is perfectly fine IMO.

    But then, I only have my eyes for Hazumu anyways, so I don’t really wanna take sides in the soon-to-be Tomari vs Yasuna war.

    I prefer Tomari, but that’s again due to my sympathies for the ‘longtime friend getting the girl/guy’ camp. :D Now if Hazumu grew out her hair…

    Nah, Hazumu is perfectly fine as he is now. He is a perfect example of androgyny and he’s pretty cute to boot ;).

    I still say he’d be better with longer hair – Yasuna length would be great, but even just a little more to frame the face with a rounded bob would be good.

    Of course, the fact we’re arguing over a guy turned into a girl and seeing what would make him or her more attractive ought to be disturbing. ;)

    Not as disturbing as a people who draw Rozen Maiden h-doujins ;).

    Point taken. :D That one with the Suigintou quote… that truly is a tad disturbing, especially given her ‘real form’. At least Hazumu’s got a figure, even if I suspect Jan-puu had more input on how big the chest should be than maybe she should’ve…

    I’m still rooting for her, even if everyone’s more sympathetic towards Yasuna at the moment – the anime does a lot better in developing her as a tragic figure who Hazumu helped shine some light into an otherwise ‘dark’ existence, but Tomari’s my favorite of the two present suitors. Of course, Hazumu was so effeminate that I suspect that this was probably her ‘real’ form all along, but it took some alien technology to realize it.

    At least neither of us are acting like Asuta.

    Yasuna also did had some impact to Hazumu as well, the latest manga chapter is pretty touching.

    >>At least neither of us are acting like Asuta.

    Yeah, he should be more decisive. I’d hit on my best friend if he was turned into perfect girl like Hazumu, hard.

    I’ll have to find that somewhere – I’ve only gotten up to Vol 2, and Vol 3′s still being translated, IIRC.

    You utter, utter cad. I’d at least try to make her comfortable and help her deal with her transition, and THEN try to to lead her down that road. You disgust me. ;)

    Tomari has been my favourite since I first saw the character art in Newtype, her expressions are great.

    I agree Yasuna must die…slowly, and yes, if my best friend became a cute girl like Hazumu, I’d hit on her as well. But I really feel like saying is that it is totally unfair that Asuta can’t even have one shot with Hazumu, I mean there should at least be an episode were the two of them take a chance and go on a date. Even if it’s doomed to failure, it’d be nice for Asuta to have a little bit of the fun.

    I know it’s pointless, but GO ASUTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
