Maria+Holic 02



Seconded, Kanako-kun, seconded ;_;.

And why is it that I enjoy Kanako’s internal commentary so much? Is it because I’m thinking the same damn thing myself too? We would’ve been really good friends, Kanako….

Lastly, that was some really creative karaoke SFX gg did there. Possibly one of the best ones I’ve seen in a fansub for a while now.

UPDATE: Oh wow, just found this in the episode…

    Well, if they’re allowed to have durian bubble tea, why not durian candy?

    Besides, if you think durian is bad, you’ve obviously never read Iron Wok Jan. DURIAN IS A TASTE OF HEAVEN.

    I wonder if those candies have the horrible smell/texture of durians.

    @Magnius: I lol’ed. I’m a MALAYSIAN fergawdssake. I LOVE durians. I’m just surprised to find it in Maria+Holic.

    That said, durian-flavored stuff usually don’t have the horrible smell, so it’s not surprising to find some in Japan, the land of gooey peach juice and tomato shiruko.

    Had the pleasure of seeing a durian in person while I was in MN over christmas… strangest fruit I’ve ever seen o_O;

    may taste like heaven but I abide by if it smells bad I don’t eat it. :o

    I’ll be damned if another Zetsubou seiyuu pops up. Nothing wrong with it, but I was hoping for some new and interesting voices. Oh well, at least it’s the usual high quality from SHAFT. :)

    Ugh. Durian. that would suck if someone ate that candy thinking it was melon flavored

    Durian-flavored desserts? It’s more likely than you think. I remember once playing an eroge where one of the characters made a Durian-flavored dessert for the protagonist. I did a double-take when I first saw it.

    Wait… I never tried one before… got such thing?

    I’ve had durian-flavoured candy before. Tasted very artificial.

    Can’t beat the real thing, assuming it’s a good durian, of course. (I prefer the sweeter varieties, so I may just have strange tastes.)

    I’m Filipino by citizenship but i don’t live in Mindanao where Durian is plentiful.
    When i was there alst year i got to taste durian. I never did find the smell “stinky” but instead, “unique”. However i hated the taste… <_<

    I dislike durian despite the fact that I am a Singaporean, BURN ME! Really. Srsly.

    Durian smells but it’s worth it. ~eheheh

    I’ve seen durian ice cream, durian candies, durian waffers and durian tasting pudding like thing. Oh and the actual thing. Spikes and all. They taste damn great~ The smell is nice too :3 Well to me at least XP I want durian.

    …Meido guitar ftw XDDD

    Durian Candy is like those air-wisps or plug-it-ins with food scents when you don’t want to eat the actual thing, but find an alternative.

    Totally love the Yuri harem concept, but it may turn hetero at the end. I found myself having a girl crush when Mariya repeatedly said I’ll rape you or hurt you. I’m not M! I just love the angle shots when he said it!

    This is definitely my guilty pleasure anime of the week.

    You’re not a “durian master” until you’ve eaten durian with rice as your meal, not dessert.
