Kannagi 07


Nagi-sama supports Blu-Ray!

LOL cocktease episode. Not bad for a filler I suppose.

Short summary; Jin makes Nagi mad and she barricades herself in his closet. He tries desperately to get her out, all the while hinting he’s sorry for “what happened when you were in the bathroom” and what not. Tsugumi is pretty much useless. Zange comes over to seduce Jin. Takako and Shino come over to join the fun and even Daitetsu barges in. Jin’s white knight comes in the form of Akiba-kun and we find out that Jin accidentally recorded another show over one that Nagi hasn’t watched and Akiba is in possession of said show. Akiba proves to be useless however when he records it in BD-R and Betamax when Jin’s house only has a VCR.

Loved how the episode kept us guessing on what happened with Jin and Nagi “in the bathroom” and why Jin specifically requested Akiba-kun to help out. Then practically the whole cast come over at first to busybody. Zange’s “anna koto ya, konna koto ya” antics was so Zange and I lol’ed at the “cockroach-cam” in the episode. Did felt a bit disappointed when they revealed the actual incident causing the the situation in the show.. I expected something more “ahem ahem ahem”.

Gotta LOL at Akiba’s Sony-loving mania and recording the stuff on BD-R and Betamax. Subliminal product placement or sponsor request? Sony should know if they want BD to be embraced by the masses, they should do something about RM 2000 players/writers and the RM 50 discs first even if they try to steal their way in to the hearts and minds of us otakus.

The ED got replaced with a trailer sequence of Mahou Shoujo Loliko-chan (or smth), the show that Nagi is infatuated with. Man, it looks so f*cked up for a mahou-shoujo show. Sadly no special Nagi art this week.



Oh look, it’s reverse-bikini girl!




lol cockroach-cam


Yeah, I know the last picture is disturbing. Dammit, is Yamakan pandering to (most probably not watching this show) YFG’s too?

Postscript: I forgot to mention Takako’s “Too shy shy” jibe on Tsugumi as well. She’s probably the second most awesome character in the show after Akiba-kun. Also Shin_Asuka notably points out that Shino is a walking Nunnally, wwwwwww.

    Concerning that show at the end, when the red-haired girl shot pink beams, I immediately thought they were imitating Nanoha’s last battle with Fate in the first season.

    Or maybe I’m just an overzealous fan of Nanoha :D

    @Maximilian: I immediately thought of Nanoha too because of the talking weapons. Best Raising Heart parody ever.

    There are so many parodies, tributes and references in this epsisode. Actually Kemeko has lots of them too just way more obscure. I remember Kemeko parodying a famous scene from supposedly the best Japanese movie ever made, Ozu’s Tokyo Story (1953), but nobody from the fansubbers to the blogosphere got the joke. I AM GOD now.

    Anyway, it does seem to be a Nanoha parody, plus there’s a reference to Bamboo Blade in the betamax part.

    “Gotta LOL at Akiba’s Sony-loving mania and recording the stuff on BD-R and Betamax. Subliminal product placement or sponsor request?”

    I think of it more as a way of kissing up to the boss upstairs in quite a clever way XD

    From Wikipedia:
    “A-1 Pictures Inc. is a Japanese animation studio, a subsidiary of Sony’s anime production firm Aniplex.”

    “It’s a SONY!” LOL
    He says it with such conviction! Akiba is the BEST pretending-not-to-be Otaku ever!
    About the reverse bikini girl… When I saw her lift her skirt at first, I screamed, “NO! They woulnd’t show things like that!!!” (to those who catch my drift…) and then they didn’t and I was happy.
    (i got a twisted mind, I admit…)
