Myself;Yourself

A rather more serious episode this week on Pronouns.

First, we are introduced to Yuzuki-sensei, whom Sana has met before in the past once. A rather cool-type, she has this cute habit of giving out caramel sweets to people as a form of encouragement and thanks.

There’s also a bit of story for Syuuri, who is leading an opposition movement against the development of a nature park in their town, because of her attachment and memories to the place, where she once visited with her brother and her mother, presumably dead now. The irony is that the one in charge of the project is her father and we discover the Wakatsuki twins household isn’t a very harmonious one.

Finally, Sana helps out at the old folks home again with Hoshino-san. Kaji-san asks them for a favour; to bury a box at the roots of the largest Sakura tree in the area, which Sana conveniently remembers where from when he was a kid. They both bury it, but Hoshino slips a bit, so Sana catches her and tells her to rest a bit. With impeccable timing, Nanaka passes by, spots them and her eyes suddenly turn yandere. Meanwhile, a very ominously-looking Kaji-san looks at the two sister hills, while Poe, the cat at the old folks home is missing.

Hmm, a rather messy episode, even though it was dealing with some serious issues, such as the condition of the Wakatsuki household and the weirdly-acting Kaji-san. Not to mention, yandere Nanaka suddenly thrown in the mix, and I’m beginning to go “WTF are they going to do with this show?”

Next episode, flashback of Sana and Nanaka in the past.

    Oh God, Kaji-san has killed poor Poe. They just ruined the moment when Sana didn’t move at all but Poe’s bell rang a 2nd time. Really, what’s going with that granny?

    Then Nanako’s yandere eyes (or SEED mode if you want); maybe they used it to empathize how Nanako will be jealous of every girl who approaches Sana now that she has reunited with him.

    Many thinks to discover and only six episodes more to discover the truth…

    Holy crap; I thought this was supposed to be a happy series.

    Kaji-san already creeped me out at the end of that other episode (5?). And now it looks like she’s behind the disappearances of the animals.

    My Aoi-loving friend and I were watching the ep together, and he jumped all over the legend of the two hills and the sacrifices … and how last time at the nursing home the bird was missing. What’s up with all that?

    (Needs more Hinako to counter-balance the creepy. :O)

    Yandere? She just looks sad/disappointed to me.

    “They just ruined the moment when Sana didn’t move at all but Poe’s bell rang a 2nd time.”
    Buried alive, drugged?

    In the bell ringing scene I was thinking supernatural, because Hoshino heard it and Sana did not.

    And I really do not want to think about the cat being buried alive, as that is sick and disturbing.

    Well, Poe seems to have been alive when being in that box. And as Crisu said, I also think that the birds disappearance in Ep5 is connected to Kaji-san coming home with muddy hands as it was said; meaning: She buried the bird back then in Ep5 and now is having Sana and Hoshino burying Poe.

    Seems like (I don’t remember who commented it back then to Ep5) is right saying that kaji-san is believing in the old legend of the sakura hills.

    Does someone know if myself;yourself will have just 13Eps or 26Eps? I think 13Eps is too little time to solve all the things up to now. I prefer 26Eps anyways^^

    Only 13 episodes sadly.
    You’re right, Poe surely was alive… damn it…
    But what’s the point anyway… how many animals will she sacrifice for that purpose.

    Seriously, this series has no freaking clue what it wants to be.

    Is it a love comedy? A Higurashi clone? A harem show? We don’t know; each episode leans in one direction and then totally throws us for a loop and goes a different way.

    All I can say is, with six episodes to go this show is moving rapidly towards FAIL and isn’t looking back. What a pity.

    @Greggo

    It’s a love comedy. It always has been. Anything else is just the viewer’s perception. So what if it has a creepy character? So what if it’s has alot of dark history?

    It is STILL a love comedy… And franky, I don’t see how you could be confused at something so simple.

    From Pronouns first episode, I was just waiting for a harem-clone love comedy to indulge in, but it has seriously turned into a Kanon meets Higurashi no Naku Koro ni -guy comes back to his childhood town, remembers friends and his relationship with them…but on the other hand there are some dark tiding going in this sugary setting.-

    I think this has become an interesting show, although I’m starting to sense a bit of a trend in involving some dark or mysterious element in love comedies.

    Well, anime is indeed a seasonal endeavor.
