I feel you, Kaito-kun. I feel you. Just… hang on.
(Warning: long post ahead.)
LOL Hong Kong style script-writing by Remon.
That’s getting pretty meta, Remon.
Hong Kong style scriptwriting. Throwing out random settings. Lines are all ad-libbed… Remon-senpai is a true auteur.
Haha, the aliens (or maybe just Ichika) sure have a pretty big fear of the MiB. I hope it’s not due to the interception of television signals. Imagine an entire alien race learning all about us only through movies and tv shows….
Well, that’s true…
Ahh, dammit. That’s not the words he wants to hear from you, Kanna. I wonder how much hurt he was concealing with that…
… and Mio, watching from the sidelines again.
Back to the movie… yeah, Remon’s doing this on purpose.
Hahah, accidental キラッ☆!! there by Ichika was hilarious.
Awwwwwww YEAAAAAAAAAH, Rinon!
Indeed. Rinon is so awesome.
Yeah… it would be nice if everyone had a happy ending in the end, right?
Dammit, Rinon, y u so cuddly and cute?! Where do I get one of my own? :(
Taking advantage of the meta, eh?
Well, it’s definitely an interesting way to meet a lifelong partner.
…. Mio seriously goes au naturel at home all the time? That panda plushie… *SNAP*
Meanwhile, Kanna steps in to her own personal little Hell…
… even trips an uncomfortable landmine for the two.
Oh Kanna… (;_;) (cute panda umbrella btw)
Y’know, Tetsurou, if it weren’t for the osananjimi card….
Well, who would feel upbeat in that situation… yet you still went and plunged in. 青春だね～～
Ah… the “If I get rejected, we’ll never be friends again” card. Somehow only Tatsuyuki Nagai can do this without making the characters look stupid/cliched.
Feeling so hard for Tetsurou-kun here. He does have an idea, and a very painful one of it too…
Looks like that finally got the better of him though.
*KABOOOM*… and he lets off quite the bomb on poor unsuspecting Kaito.
What’s worse… Ichika hears it too. Oh boy.
Well, that was an amazingly well done episode. Looks like the first four episodes were really just a prologue.
I really like Tatsuyuki Nagai’s touch when he does works like Ano Natsu, as he really knows how to make drama play out between characters, without relying hard on plot devices or what not. Sure, it’s rather angsty as some would say, but it also does manage to reach in and touch a raw nerve too. That, and combined with the visual composition and how he incorporates all the subtle timings/cues… the whole works. I am so glad he’s the one doing this. Hell, Ano Natsu might even top the Onegai series that is its spiritual predecessor.
And true to the series traditions…
Yup! Okinawa beach episode time! I wonder if some of the familiar side characters from the Onegai series are going to be around as well. *coughdoggygirlcough*
Of course, the episode title also seems to be insinuating something fun too… :)
