Katanagatari 09


Uh oh, Shichika’s manly charms have.. uh, manifested itself.


Togame is.. uh, taking it in stride?



Maybe not. Jealous Togame is hillarious.


Well, that’s just a bridge gone too far now, Shichika.




I hate it when they cry.


Wait, scratch that.


She’s still hilarious when she cries.

Man, this episode was highly worth it to see Togame going over the top jealous when Shichika gets too close to their next opponent, Kiguchi Zanki. Itou Shizuka serves as a fine choice as their newest opponent, well-known for being upright and honest. Reminds me of a certain pink-haired student council president too. Lucky for her fans all round, she survives this time.

Another missing preview this time though, apparently it was too much spoiler-ish to be put in. Got a link to it somewhere, I wonder?

On a sidenote, I can’t believe the Maniwani’s are still players in the whole scheme of things. Well, I did feel it was pretty damn unfair when Emonzaemon pulled those guns on her. “Most deviant blade of the Deviant Blades”? Houou sure hasn’t really known everything yet. Hurr.

Oh, and lack of Hitei-hime was rather disappointing.

    Togame was great in this. Kiguchi Zanki, being voiced by Itou Shizuka, was a good addition to this series.

    It’s like the imagination of yaoi fangirls except it’s a straight pairing. D:

    Holy crap, Shikizaki Kiki is Kamina?!!

    Also whoa, the final episode looks set to be amazingly epic. Hopefully.

    I can’t believe you didn’t mention Shichika’s hilarious sword pose or THE KISS!!

    Also, trailer for eps 10-12 if you were looking for a preview. There’s some spoilers here and there.

    You mean this?

    Yeah, that was hillarious. I wanted to make a gif out of that too!

    And yes, the kiss was epic, but I was more thoroughly entertained by Togame’s jealous fits :P.
