Amagami SS 04

Amagami SS

It took me an hour to finish watching this episode thanks to that.

Amagami SS

Oh god what, are you serious? Morishima Lovely Haruka. I can’t deny it fits her perfectly but… what?!

Amagami SS

Oh, so that’s why. And we also get a perfect explanation for her blue eyes too. It’s been kinda bugging me how she could have black hair AND blue eyes.

Amagami SS

I can’t believe he managed to blurt that out with such a straight face, as true as it might be!

Amagami SS

Oh god the internal conflict.

Amagami SS

Holy f—

Amagami SS

Wait, what?!

Amagami SS

I… I.. I… REALLY WANTED TO!

Amagami SS

(CAN I SHOOT MYSELF RIGHT NOW?! ARGH)

Amagami SS

Amagami SS

Uh-oh…

Amagami SS

Damn it, despite being a Junichi!

Amagami SS

Oh god, my brain just nearly blew up.

Amagami SS

D’awwwwwww…..

Amagami SS

Whee, time-skip!

Amagami SS

And they are happily married (although where are the lil’ ones? Admittedly it is kinda hard to imagine her as a mom… especially if she had a son. Poor guy would so suffer from mental torture).

Well, that wraps up the Morishima Haruka arc. I’m glad they ended it this way. By the sheer virtue of doing standalone arcs for each girl, Amagami SS might just be a real winner. This is way better than trying to integrate everything in to one fluid arc and then bung it up with extreme dorama, like in Kimikiss. Seriously, that show….

Sexhair’s arc is up next. Well, at least I won’t have to suffer from brain breaks anymore.

    Yeah, the no children thing kinda bugs me. Especially since it’s already TEN years. Not even any signs of pregnancy. A subtle reflection on Japan’s declining birth rate?

    Anyway, it’s been a good arc. I hope that the other ones could compare…

    This season, we’ve heard Shizuka Itou in an array of voices like pouting, being angry, being cutesy, crying, m..mo.moaning and the very potent nyan nyan nyan which killed off a lot of sanity-sustaining neurons in the space of a few seconds. I’m probably one of the lucky ones that survived that onslaught. Shizuka-sama, how fearsome! =D

    And remember people, peeking isn’t necessarily bad, it is an expression of LOVE!!

    She is awesome! Maybe the children are at school? Or maybe that guy is useless. :P

    Why is the 2nd girl, Kaoru, known as sexhair? A nickname from the game?

    @Nestor: I just hope they’ve consummated their wedding. For some reason I get the impression Haruka’s a bit naive about the whole sex thing. Can’t imagine Junichi lasting that long without a piece though.

    @SagittaMagica: What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. And yes, peeking is a sign of love!

    @misterowl: because her hair permanently looks like she just got out of bed after a night of hot steamy sex.

    What. They actually are doing each end, ala Clannad After Story? Okay, maybe I was wrong…

    No mention of how they clearly seem to have roleplay sex every night!

    To Haruka,

    If it wasn’t for the possibility of getting sued by you, we would really love to have peeked at you.

    From,
    The rest.

    There’s no way the subsequent arcs can be as good as this…no way in hell…

    DAMMIT SHIZUKA ITOU! WHY MUST YOU TAUNT US LIKE THIS?!?!

    I kinda wish this arc was a bit more emotional but her playfulness did help set a nice mood at the end.

    Now time for Sex Hair arc. I do like that we call her sex hair :D

    I didnt like it what much, other than Shizuka Itou getting the award for best VA’ing this season the timeskip was a big WTF moment. They seriously became Issac and Miria for a sec there

  11. Kurogane Shiroikaze Said,

    @Game8910: Given how Haruka is like…. do you think you’d like to see their ‘dates’ and courtship moments? I mean, watching 2 bokke’s going at each other without a tsukkomi is mental torture y’know.

    Haruka: No peeking!
    -couple minutes later-
    Haruka: Why didn’t you come peek? ;_;

    WOMEN – HOW DO THEY WORK ?!

    Dark hair and blue eyes are rather devastating……

    “There’s no way the subsequent arcs can be as good as this…no way in hell…”

    Eh.. AI & Ayatsuji >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Haruka.

    @Phocus – Nice meme reference

    Quarter English… that explains why Morishima uses lots of half english like “Wow” and “Good Job”.

    Yessss. Sex hair. I have a huge weakness for tomboys AND childhood friends, so I have high hopes for this next arc.

    That said, it’s gonna have to be REALLY good to top Haruka.

    (And I choose to believe they have kids and they’re at school, personally)

    That was the most enjoyable review I’ve seen in quite some time.

    I had the same issue with the episode though. I couldn’t get myself to watch it with a straight face so I put off Amagami over and over again.

  18. Deviance Said,

    July 25, 2010 @ 11:31 am

    Well, either the next arcs won’t be as good as this one, or they’ll get much ‘worse’…

    The latter of which I’m quite afraid of (RIP for those who couldn’t make it…)

  19. Benigmatica Said,

    July 25, 2010 @ 12:28 pm

    Say, why are you calling Kaoru as “Sexhair”?

  20. Kurogane Shiroikaze Said,

    July 25, 2010 @ 1:06 pm

    I think we’ve all explained the “sexhair” nick in the last few weeks…. have you been paying attention Benigmatica? In fact, you can just scroll up and read the explanation I gave to misterowl24!

  21. Benigmatica Said,

    July 25, 2010 @ 2:01 pm

    Sorry, I didn’t pay attention…

  22. hiroy_raind Said,

    no, really, no conflict at all? O_o
    hope the subsequent arc will be better.

    Is it too early to crown Amagami SS as the best VN to anime adaption ever? Ah well.

    >Sexhair’s arc is up next. Well, at least I won’t have to suffer from brain breaks anymore.

    …AHAHAHAHAHAHA! XD

    There are kids in the family, two adult-looking ones.

    @hiroy_raind

    I actually ENJOYED no conflict. It sometimes annoys me in Harem Anime when you have all these girls so fixated on one guy. It was actually refreshing to see the other girls going about their lives as normal while Junichi got with Haruka. There were some nice hints of where a relationship could have started or why they’ll get together in their respective arcs, but life went on for them anyway. I’m enjoying that aspect of it. There’s enough “conflict” for me in watching Junichi work at breaking down Haruka’s barriers and getting her to like him.

    Very enjoyable first segment. I do hope they haven’t “front loaded” this series though — ie. that some of the other stories will at least be decent.

    Is this the last time we’ll be excited by Shizuka Itou’s supercute voice in this series, or will Haruka at least have sideline parts?

  28. R Said,

    July 26, 2010 @ 3:54 pm

    That. was. awesome!
    I can’t possibly imagine how the rest of the series could compare to this, unless they plan on repeating the last 4 episodes 5 times. Which would be totally fine.

    You know what am I afraid now?

    That somehow one way or another, main dude’s so called “planeterium” is just like the 4.5 tatami rooms in Yojou-han Shinwa Taikei. Shit was torture for me.

    Just imagining if in the last episode of Amagami SS, he wakes up as a hikkikomori. Oh god that would break me again, so, so hard.

    Besides that, nice end.

    I hope the other arcs can be as good, but with less BDSM , lol. But I guess it can’t be helped given the source material.

    I found it kinda disturbing they hadn’t had any kids after 10 years, plus they don’t look any older. *shifty-eyes*

    I think the brain shattering brought on by this ep lost me a few IQ points, especially the “Why didnt you peek?” scene.
    gotta admit though, the time skip was just slightly WTH?
