And Miya dispenses with a little gem of wisdom to all prospective brothers looking for a date for Christmas.

Well, I’m glad Kaoru’s arc is finally done with. It’s not bad, but it’s a bit too bland – thus kinda boring for me without the stimulation provided by good ol’ Haruka. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I hate Kaoru or anything… but the lack of tension pretty much bored me, not to mention that Junichi was a bit lacking in initiative in this arc.

Sae’s arc is up next. She’s pretty much an unknown to me, since we don’t see her much apart from hanging around Miya-chan. I heard she has big boobs, that’s all.

    I can’t hear “Sae” and “Miya-chan” together in the same sentence without thinking of Hidamari Sketch now, especially given who voices the imouto. And THAT Sae doesn’t have a “bug chest”.

    Junichi taking the lead to romance shy freshman Sae… and succeeds = next arc in a nutshell

    Time for a bit of role switching, so to speak. His next target isn’t as aggressive as the previous ones. Also, he’ll probably have an advantage since Miya’s more chummy with Sae compared to the previous girls… would also carry over to Nanasaki, probably…

    This^

    You share the same thoughts as me, I’m glad Kaoru’s arc is finally over.

    Sort of sad that Haruka’s friend doesn’t get her own arc.

    Is it my MILF fetish or the sensei is really sexy? She doesnt get her arc, though…

    It’s funny how I’m more disappointed that there’s no Hibiki arc, as well as one for sensei and Miya…

    so is it odd that in arc 1 he is left at the part..and later when he and haruka are talking he finds out that he actually had met her at the park. but in arc1 hes still friends with sexhair. However in arc 2 he doesnt for the lack of a better word “know” haruka but instead remembers seeing sexhair at the park which is where they started being friends?…and yet hes friends with her in both arcs but not haruka

    i just think its kinda inconsistent. i kinda thought the arcs would be him choosing a differnt person..but its like a totally alternate reality for him. -his lack of manlyness

    or maybe im just extremely dumb. both are fine

    @Haesslich: LOL.

    @meganeshounen: Yeah, hopefully we’ll see a more assertive Junichi for the next arc. He was pretty fun to watch during Haruka’s arc because he took the initiave to pursue her.

    @AozuAkazu: High-five, fellow Haruka fan. And yeah, too bad Hibiki doesn’t get her own arc, she’s awesome in her own way. We’ll see more of her in Nanasaki’s arc though, because she’s the club leader.

    @ewok40k: This series would’ve been huge if every awesome female character got her own arc…

    @tim: It’s more like the parts two years before are same, but we don’t get to see all of it yet, only in bits or pieces. In Haruka’s arc, he meets her at the park the year after he got stood up, but in Kaoru’s arc, he meets her at the park right after he got stood up and was about to go home. Anyways, I wouldn’t really care much for consistency in this show, LOL.

    Harukas friend Hibiki really would have been a great arc. Could have been a classic tsundere plus she has a very unique look for an anime character-sigh.
    I’ll feel the same way about Manaka during Rihokos arc.

    Man, and they almost have sex on that arc! And I wonder if Junichi have sex with Haruka at Episode 4.

    Unless President-chan or Ai deliver beyond expectation, Haruka and Miya will likely continue to steal the show till the end … not that I really mind.

    They wasted episode 08, (maybe there is a bonus in the DVD version) good thing Hina..ruka saved it slightly from sinking.

    Since Princess Lover is moving towards ero-ova’s, expect AmagamiSS to follow through.

    I really wanted to love Kaoru’s arc, but in the end, I gotta agree with this assessment. Compared to Haruka’s amazing arc, it was just so bland. Both characters could have done a lot better to put a little more intenseness into what they did, really. I still like Kaoru, but at this point, I have to concede that Haruka is the better character and the better love interest (Not that there’s any bitterness there, Haruka is AMAZING). I was also pretty disappointed the 10 years later thing won’t be a thing. I always like to see how my favorite couples are getting along in the future.

    Also: Yeah, seriously, Sensei’s hot, and damn, where is my Hibiki arc? >:|

    @tim:

    Our hero has selective memory, focusing on one heroine per arc, at the expense of the others. It’s the only explanation for all the gaps and contradictions. After all, we’re seeing the omnibus through Junichi’s POV for the most part.

    The FINAL BOSS arc will most likely clear up the inconsistencies by showing us the complete timeline where all the girls fit in.

    Final Boss arc lol what the hell?

    What have you been smoking, Skribulous?

    I agree, this arc was a major let down. I mean, she kisses him then falls asleep! WTH? If I were him I’d be majorly pissed.

    Haha :)

    Well, I’m not as critical of Kaoru’s arc as you guys are. It remains a fairly believable romance with a likable character. She’s just not remotely as extreme/exciting as Haruka. But I still enjoyed the arc quite a bit.

    I have no clue why you’re harping about consistency. It was clear right from the beginning that we’d see 6 variations of the same characters, a path for each girl. NATURALLY there is no consistency between them because he’s dating a different girl all the time. What you’re doing is making about as much sense as eating soup with a spoon.

    Based on what I know, I’d predict this quality of arcs: Ayatsuji >> Haruka = Ai > Kaoru > Sae > Rihoko

  20. Hamiltong Said,

    @Mentar i rather disagree w/ that grading scale. No way can Ai be as epic as Haruka. Not sure if Ayatsuji will be better or not, but ill probably have to shoot myself halfway through Sae’s arc just from the sexual frustration that will be going on. And i REALLY disagree w/ Rihoko’s being the worst. Im actually quite looking forward to her arc ;)

    i still liked this arc the most because it was so sweet and kinda believable. sad to see it end! :(

    Kaoru is actually my favorite heroine in Amagami…too bad her arc wasn’t one of the better ones.

    I didn’t like the ending. Not after watching the Morishima Haruka Senpai one when they actually got married. Now that ending was epic. :D
