Myself;Yourself 03


Fishing is 10x mo(r)e funnier with Aoi-chan around!

Welcome to another installment of Pronouns!

The twins plan a way to try and make Nanaka and Sana’s relationship closer, by organizing a trip to the riverside, followed with a spa visit. Timely, because Sana keeps on triggering Nanaka’s tsun-dere counters, resulting in a rather, plus-minus-zero situation with her affection level.


Yay! Swimsuits!

On the day of the trip, Sana shoots himself in the foot mostly, by inviting along outsider, Hoshino, and also Nanaka discovering that Sana bought the same pocket mirrors for her and Hoshino as well. The trip continues on, mostly as planned and the rest of the gang having a lot of fun, excluding Nanaka, due to her being in tsun mode all day long.

Finally, when the day ends, Sana, Aoi & Nanaka head home together in the same direction and Aoi reminisces back on Nanaka’s cookies. Nanaka, who did bake a batch for the trip but didn’t share it due to tsun-mode, shares it out with Aoi and Sana at Aoi’s place. Sana then redeems himself by presenting Nanaka with a pink, shiny stone he found during the trip as thanks for the cookies. Nanaka returns home in dere-mode, treasuring the stone.


Dere~ dere~ mode entered.

Oh man, seriously, Nanaka is so… well, unsociable. I wonder how did she change so much in 5 years. Her tsun-dere counters were really swinging like mad all over the episode, kinda reminding me of a pendulum lol. Though I must say, LOL at her wearing a sukumizu to the spa. Oh she’s gonna be popular with the maniacs :P.


Oh boy. She’s gonna be popular with the maniacs…

Meanwhile, Aoi remains the main fanservice provider of the show. She can be seriously scary though… look at how she went mania over the water slide. I’m still trying to get used to Tomoko Kaneda in that type of character. But man… her boobs probably can rival Mayu-chan’s in terms of quality and size…

Also, why did Hoshino get a shot of her holding a bloody knife? A nod to her seiyuu’s famous role in a certain horror show? Or a sign of things to come? Saaa~~ But at the least we do know that; (i) Sana’s afraid of blood. (ii) He won’t take off his wristwatch for some reason. Makes me wonder if he had experienced something traumatizing in the 5 years he was away.

Next week on Pronouns, the customary Loli-DFC is introduced. Looks like she likes Syuusuke a lot.

    I don’t take my watch off either, in fact since I put it on after a battery change in dec 2004 it I have yet to take it off once. I’m doing it just for the hell of it and see how long until circumstances force me to take it off.

    Hmm, really? But in that situation, it was highly suspicious that he didn’t remove the watch, considering it’s all just his childhood friends there, not to mention he changed the subject real fast, w/o talking more about it.

    In that kind of situation, one just can’t help but extrapolate tropes from it ;).

    I sensed “kiling intent” in that scene. I bet the boy plans to whip out a hatchet or something later.

    I think it could be possible that Sanas father got murdered or commited suicide during these last five years (by using a knife) and ever since, Sana can’t stand the image of a bloody knife… The wrist-watch could be the last memento of his father, which is why he treasures it that much…

    I figured that I didn’t quite remember the details of the first Episodes, so I speed-rewatched the first Episode just now (meaning watching the subs in VLC-Player in fast-fast-forward mode) . Originally I wanted to find out the reasons for Sana moving back to that town, but I got disappointed since he just said he “had his reasons” (but avoiding the direct answer is suspicious…)
    But by rewatching it, I noticed that there was a suspicious shot of that wrist-watch while his mum called him in teh evening.

    I also wondered when I watched Ep1 for the first time why he was so sad when his mother called him. And after watching Ep2 (and now Ep3 as well) I am wondering why his mother is calling him everyday anyways… He seems to be that type of person who is quite independent, so she wouldn’t phone just because of worries… If my theory is right, then maybe because of the death of Sana’s father caused her mind to snap in so this is a result of mental damage…

    Well, these are just hypothesis’s but this way, things would make sense. Maybe someone likes this idea…
    If it really was right, I would be the first one not to believe it or lokking like XDDDDDDD…

    Well its actually obvious what they are trying to imply. Wrist+knife+blood+wont take off watch, get the drift? Hence why his mom calls him every night to see that he’s well… alive.
    Then again who knows untill we get a actual confirmation

    Good point there… I haven’t seen it in that way.
    It makes sense for her mom calling him every day, him being afraid of blood and especially, his denail to get off his watch… if anything lead us to Sana’s failed attemp to suicide himself in the past, the question right now is… why?

    Thank you, I’ll keep an eye on the details.

    XD So awesome to see that the “Pronouns” nickname has stuck. Credit for that belongs solely to my Aoi-loving friend, who gets more reason in this episode to tell me she’s perfect, I guess. ^^;

    I was feeling School Days vibes with all of Sana’s shoot-in-foot moments in the first half of the ep. And the eerie knife reaction. But I think I’ll agree with above commenters so far on the hypothesis: I suppose there had been some potential wrist-slitting in the past for whatever reason.

    I await this loli-DFC’s appearance before I choose my own favorite girl of the series. Shuri didn’t get many points today sadly, except maybe admitting her oppai-defeat during the ‘swimsuit contest.’ And I always like hearing Nanoha underneath all of it.

    Pronouns hm? I have to admit Nanaka’s dere and tsun counters are very easily switched… Then again Sana was at fault too, it’s like Yay do something good! Then bam he messes up a bit heh. In the end he was able to come out with + points so it’s fine.
