Yosuga no Sora 06

Yosuga no Sora

An amazingly decent resolution episode for Akira’s arc. I quite liked the initial twist and the final resolution of the issue of Akira’s mother.

First, they raised the possibility that Akira and Kazuha was swapped at birth, tying nicely in to their same birthday “coincidence”. Then the final reveal involving the pendant was quite well done as well, preserving the major status quo but also opening the route to Akira getting a better treatment from her real family too. I do understand how Kazuha’s mother felt so betrayed when she found out about Akira, but she also found it in her heart to forgive her for sins she didn’t commit and came off looking a lot more better than the impressions she gave off in the earlier episodes.

As for Akira, I dare say she stands out better as a character than her sister, Kazuha. While Kazuha’s conflicts were majorly centered on her own guilt towards Akira’s disownment, Akira’s conflict as a character was about living through the loneliness and hatred surrounding her and her unfortunate origins. I also liked how the episode gave us a glimpse of Akira’s “Ojii-chan”, who raised her despite all the prejudices and gave her strength to go through life. I really admired that part of Akira and it was good to see that she did it not as a coping mechanism, but as a tribute to the one person who raised her up.

And for the reward scenes this week, I’m glad to say they were pretty tasteful and full of mugyuu :). Kazuha’s reward scenes had the advantage of being fresh but didn’t really hold up to close introspection, so it’s good to see that Akira’s scenes were done using mostly stills and bed dialogue instead of filling it up with fake moans. I loved how she told Haruka they were going to “mugyuu” once a day and use the phone when they couldn’t meet each other. Nice euphemisms.

Miko sex is full of mugyuu~

Eh okay, that was a much longer post than I intended to write, but this episode was seriously quite a bit better compared to the rest so far. Next week starts the slut Nao’s arc, and the first episode is most likely the shared episode with Sora as well, so I’m hoping for a little more Sora screen time than the usual. As a parting shot, let’s have some mad Sora.

    Akira is awesome, nuff said xD.

    It was a well-executed arc and Akira was a very likeable character, to me that is. And the NSFW scenes were LOL. MUGYUUUU.

    Since next episode title only has Nao’s name on it, I doubt it will be Sora-Now’s shared ep..
    this post from AS convinced me that it is so(though it’s just speculation) http://forums.animesuki.com/showpost.php?p=3338124&postcount=1136

    Nao and Sora Arc share both episodes 1 and 7.

    Does this convince you that Yosuga is good? No.

    Does this convince you to play the visual novel since it’s way better than watching this piece of shit? Sadly again, no.

    So is Yosuga actually any good? I dunno.

    Nao turned Haru into a pervert at a very young age, which leds to having his sister’s first kiss taken by him by reflex after get near each other.

    In the real world, wincest and incest (with cousins of the same age or whatsover) happens due to stupid adults that led young children into the perverted world at the early age, so by the time they are aware that its wrong, their body act against their will and still do those lewd things.

    The episode was okay until the mugyuuu part. That pissed me off because it’s too fucking cliche. I can see her fucking Haru even when she shamelessly said she doesn’t know how to repay him. Pfft.

    Now comes a difficult point…

    Do I attempt to watch the rest – even though I REALLY didn’t like it in the VN? Or do I just stop now, and be happy that the only arc I liked was done fantastically well?

    You can just edit the episode itself and cut all those NSFW scenes (Gundam Seed episode 15 succeeds on doing it, later on added “Flay raped Kira” in the DVD version)
