The cabbage… was awesome.

Nothing else to say about this episode.

    It almost feels like the show is….stagnating or something. Hope the main plot drives in soon, because so far it’s lacking the impact of the first season, IMO

    There are things that even Shana is scared of.

    Also, what the? First Yoake, then this? o_O

    The only highlight is actually Wilhelmina trying to cook. Seriously, the way things go, it’ll become a clone of School Days. Already some of the guys in niconico are calling it “Flame Days”. Though unlike scumhead Makoto, Yuji has enough power to actually defend himself and kick some ass.

    Anyway, from the preview, it looks like they’ll incorporate some scenes from novel volume 8 into this Hecate story.

    But seriously JC STAFF, just concentrate all your resources into making a series of Shana movies that are faithful to the novels, just like the first movie. Stop wasting time on useless fillers not even written by the author himself. Watching the same Clannad episode five times is a better way to spend time than watching this filler even once.

    Right now, the series feels like mindless fanservice for Hecate fanboys. (Not that I’m complaining too much though. :D )

    Agreed, Kinny Riddle.

    I don’t even like Hecate.

    I thought Wilhemina promised ‘more action’ at the end of the the movie promo, along with more Wilhemina. So far, they’ve been pretty short on the action and long on the Konoe/Hecate.

    I think I said something on this blog, or another, about this becoming School Days no Shanatan… and alas, that’s becoming quite true. Except for the eviscerating part, that is.

    I wonder if the cabbage is an intentional in-joke by JC STAFF.

    I can’t remember the exact reason why, but I believe otakus use the term “cabbage” to describe “very poor animation quality”.

    The meme originated from Yoake Mae, where one episode, they were doing a cooking competition and the animation quality was so low, the cabbage was just a one round green ball.

    Let’s just say it was totally funny and horrible at the same time.

    Japanese Uncyclopedia entry for “cabbage”

    Features the infamous picture. And wow.

    Goodness, just look at how perfect the cabbage looks. In terms of symmetry and the perfectly aligned concentric circles when being sliced up. lol

    I am really surprised by the SLOOOW pacing this season is having. I remember that at least in the first we had some Tomogara-slaying action to complement the slow pace, but in this one we have “Ultra Donkan” Yuuji being the most dense anime character in recent memory; “Angsty” Shana and “Yappari Korosu” Kazumi trying to make sense of their jealousy (Shana I can get, she’s new to loving emotions, but Kazumi??) and basically failing to deliver a credible performance; “LOL” Hecate (come on, it’s her) being the only interesting character so far….even though she has like 3 lines per episode. Plus there is no Flame Haze action on the horizon for at least 3 episodes, so we’ll just have to hang in there.

    I really hope they fix this soon and start moving the story along or this’ll just drive away impatient Shana fans.

    I just watched the preview for next episode and seems from the title that the episode after this will be the start of, hopefully, the real story arc for this season. Let us all pray for that.

    I agree with Kinny, I really did watch the same ep of Clannad 4x and it was more entertaining then this filler x.x; SnS II seems to be really meh. All the “OMG WHAT IS THIS EMOITION?!?!?!” is really getting to me. I mean, if you don’t like it DO SOMETHING! Hideing and backing down while Hecate puts the moves on Yuji is even worse then being there.

    Speaking of doing something, Shana and Yoshida ought to take a leaf from Tanaka. Upon seeing Oga-chan being conscripted into Yuji’s harem, Tanaka promptly abandons Satou and Margery and goes to retrieve her at once from the Evil Mistes Harem King.
