Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei- Discussion & Gushing on Episode VII

[Spoilers will be present in this post!]
You have been warned.

First thing to gush about- Ze Crimson Prince! (Ep VII- The Appearance of the Red Head)
From the most recent installment in Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei~

So this guy FINALLY goddamn had a cameo after SEVEN episodes of waiting for his badass arrival! All these red heads from this anime season are pretty awesome. Yeah, I’m talking to you, Sora ❤

But this is about THIS prince <333

Dat Blood Red Uniform.

I saw him in the theme song and instantly knew this guy was going to be my favorite character. I have hence been waiting desperately for his appearance in the show!

And after every disappointment so far, Alya and I plotted gruesome murders of the creators of this show because 1. Red Head wasn’t in the show yet, and 2. Tatsuya hasn’t shown us his epic fighting skills, not all of them, and not a single fight has occured that has pushed him to his limits.

But now that the Crimson Prince is here…that may change very, veryyy soon.

Especially since they just showed that this guy is from another magical high school, and a very…morbid? Realistic? Deathly? Dark? one at that.

I mean- Red Uniform. The first scene he’s shown in, he’s drenched in a pool of blood! That’s why his uniform is red, I tell ya =/

But, gooosh, they showed him next, in the shower- but course they didn’t show all of that, they just showed his wet feet, and then his wet head. But he was shown wrapped up in just a towel after that. Which was when he did a HAIR FLIP THINGIE. Damn.

He swooshed his hair back dramatically, discussing their rivals.

Rivals obviously being Tatsuya and Miyuki!

Ah, right, I said ‘their’. There was this little vampire Seedot present too. This shortay.

Shortie Vampire Seedot

And now, here’s a seedot for comparison’s sake.

Seedot (Pokemon, Gen II, I believe.)

Anyhoo, I think some background is needed.

Mr. Vampire Seedot and Cool Evil Villain were discussing the news of how there was a bomb attack at Mahouka Koukou (Tatsuya’s magic school.) and how it’s rumored to have been caused by terrorists (that was not the case at all, but just a cover up. It’s amazing how terrorists are used as a cover up story in a fictional story xD ). And that’s when Red Head asked if their ‘rivals’ were safe. Which they were. And that’s when the end credit thing scene ended with the appearance of the anime’s logo, exceeept it wasn’t the actual logo! It was in the same design, color, font, and everything, but it said something different. It said “Nine School Tournament.” Which implies that there may just be a contest between nine magic high schools and two confirmed schools participating would be Tatsuya’s and this Red Head’s! That would also make us audience fantasize about the fight scene between Tatsuya and Red Head in the theme song to occur in that next contest- when they both probably make it to some finals of a magic duel contest. Or something of the sort.

They both have guns too ❤

Now one last picture before I move on…

Proceed to drool?

Now, other stuff that must be addressed in this episode!

1. The appearance of the Evil Yotsuba Aunt;

So her face is revealed to us after seeing just a quick glance at her physique when Tatsuya and Miyuki were discussing her some three episodes back. She looks so MUCH like Miyuki! Her hair does, as does her facial features- but those EYES. So evil, and neon PURPLE. Mesmerizing, and yet the kind of eyes that send shivers down your spine. The kind you know it’ll be a very bad move to get on the wrong side of, and to anger. Those kind of eyes.

Pluus she mentioned how Tatsuya’s Miyuki’s guardian. And on hearing that a few theories and ideas popped into my head.

One, Tatsuya’s actually a few years older than Miyuki, a twenty year old, and was adopted to protect her and serve as her body guard. I don’t think this is the case, but something else it, since the age difference isn’t something I expect from this anime, nor something I can see them doing.

Yet this is what I think happened. Two, Tatsuya’s as old as he’s portrayed to be, yet joins the military for whatever family reasons at a very young age. After proving his aptitude with his fighting magic, and sheer intelligence, he ascends the ranks at an alarming speed. It’s then when the Yotsuba family realize they need a body guard for Miyuki, possibly after a breech in security or an attack attempt/assassination attempt on her. Either way, they are somehow directed towards hiring one from the army, and after finding out about Tatsuya’s age and his skill, they adopt him.

They then, three, either decide that it’d be safest for Miyuki to go into hiding- no, wait. I think Miyuki herself decides this with Tatsuya after falling for him, and they run away, trying to hide their strong affiliations with this family, and to try having normal lives.

Or four, Tatsuya convinces the family that it’d be in the best intrest of the family if they let him take care of Miyuki by himself, away from the family, and under the pretense that she isn’t an ojou-sama.

Either way, they end up together, living a life their own, until now, where the Yotsuba family is thinking of intervening…

AND- that does however confirm one thing to me. The two really aren’t related. Or at least, that’s my theory.

2. Tatsuya finally acted awkward!

Near the end, he put his hand on Miyuki’s lower back. And he did so suuuper awkwardly to me. I thought he was going to put his arm around her waist, but he just didn’t. Too romantic? Perhaps…But then in the next scene, he  was directing her to walk away with him, and so I though he should’ve done so by putting his  hand on her upper back, on her shoulder blade region. Very normal. Usually a very authoritative and protective thing to do- not romantic. But he didn’t. Even attempting to grab her ass would’ve been more normal! (And he would’ve swooned.) But he just rested his entire hand on her lower back instead. What a Casanova.

3. This anime stole my AAA! Or at least copied it! =Y

They stole my AAA- The Awesome Asian Alliance- and made a carbon copy of it as the “Great Asian Alliance”. Pfft, the GAA. Grr. It’s MY super hero league, not yours! Damn them.

4. I sort of forgive them.

Not for stealing my League’s name. Nuh-uh. But for making us wait so looong for an epic fight sequence involving Tatsuya at his best. Granted, he wasn’t at his best, but he still actually used his gun to shoot someone, and more than ONCE.

Plus there was loads of cool swords action from Kirihara, the Magic Kendo Club Capt. I seriously forgave them just because I prefer the sword action over the guns.

And that brings me to a discussion, an announcement that is about another anime.

On second thought, I’ll just post that as a seperate post so as not to merge these two different anime together.

Be back soon~

*poof*

 

RandomTip- Dealing with Hairspray

Hairspray would be a girl’s best friend. If it was easy to get out the next day, and NOT make your hair super stiff to the point where you can’t run your fingers through it, let alone brush it….And that is why it’s a frienemy.

But that’s not important right now. Have you ever curled your hair, then sealed it all off with a load of hairspray, or perhaps used it to keep down flyaways, or just to keep it all in place (for loads of dancing, or a fancy evening out, or whateverrr)?

Well, I know I have. Not much, or often, or even at all, if I can help it. It’s just a total pain, and a much worse one trying to wash it out!

But for the annual school play, I wasn’t allowed to follow my own rules, and hence had to put up with stage make up (sooo much more than I actually would ever wear anywhere) and curling my hair (apparently, it was a crime back in the sixteenth century to have had dead straight hair =Y ).

Aaaand they put hair spray in my hair. The next day, I took a shower, and it still didn’t come out! (I didn’t shampoo that day, because I had the day prior, but either way, my hair was all tangled up.)

Sooo I experimented a bit, and found a simple way to get hairspray out of your hair. Just put some oil in your hair, sleep with it in after your night of partying, and just wash your hair in the morning. Your hair will feel so amazingly healthy afterwards, you won’t even realize you had to endure icky hairspray in it for as many hours as you did!

It worked great with me, and even after I put the oil into my hair- oils like olive oil, or coconut oil- I was able to greatly detangle/untangle my hair since it had become super smooth, and greasy, and, well, oily.

Anyways, hope this helps with keeping your hair healthy and yet still being able to do some fancier hair stuff every now and then =)

Buh bye now!

Nominated and Jammin’ Out to Bohemian Rhapsody

So today I got a very nice and official TEXT informing me that I had in fact been freakin’ nominated for being the next Head Girl of the Prefects!! Which, in my school, is the same thing as being the Student Body President (the girl one. We have two, one girl, and one guy.) EEEK!

I’m going to post the entire text now, since it’s on my cell, I may one day accidentally delete it. If only it had been an email I could star or something…

Dear Student (yup, generic little lazy head just put student so he could mass text this to all the nominees, I’m sure.),
This is to inform you that you have been nominated for the position of Head Boy/ Head Girl (see? Confirming my suspicions now…Totally lazy!) next year by the admin and current student council. Your interview is scheduled at 10.15 amon Thursday 20th March 2014 in the Auditorium. Please make a note, and confirm your availability.
Regards,
Alishan *his last name*
(Current) Head Boy

So yaaaay =D I can’t wait. So far, I know that Armeen (evil dumb blonde that I hate), and Amna/Hallam have also been nominated for the same position. I think I’ve got the greatest chances of getting the job, and that’s why I’m insanely excited. Even if I don’t get it, I hope Armeen doesn’t, and Amna does. She’d be soo much better at it than Armeen, her royal ickyness.

Plus, what with debates and other public speaking, and even active participation in drama I think I have an edge in verbal things like an interview.

The fact that I take an interest in so many other activities besides would only add to my awesomeness as Head Girl. Something that Armeen and Amna don’t really have.

But I was reaaaally concerened that they weren’t even going to consider me, since I may move this Summer, but it’s not confirmed, but looks like I needn’t have worried! Plus, there’s a chance I may also be nominated for the position of Head of the Drama Society.

When we were discussing it earlier last week, Ammar pointed at me when asked who should head it next year, and I felt so pleasantly surprised and complemented, I wanted to hug him to the point where he’d think I fancied him. (Hahahaha, no, never happening =P )

But if Kamil, by pseudo-brother, suggests Faiza for the post, I will lose all respect for him, plot his demise, and disown him. I mean, Faiza is his friend, for some retarded reason, but still, if he puts her in charge of the Drama Society, he’d basically be giving her a circus to man herself. And she can’t juggle, nor swallow fire. So the crowd won’t be amused. Ammar and Shayan are with me when I say we’d rather quit attending Theatre if Faiza becomes the head next year.

The girl is suuper self obsessed, finds and tries her hardest to steer conversation towards her, something that happened to her, something that happened to someone she knew, or something she’s done, or anyyything concerning her. She is also obsessed with trying to make it very clear to everyone how childlike she is, which irks me greatly since I’M the kid. She’s shorter than me, and is completely flat-chested, so yeah, she wins with a more child like body, but her mind is so deep in the gutter, it’s an insult to kids to say she’s childlike at all. Maybe a modern child that swears, and plays Call of Duty a lot she could compare herself to successfully…

Oh, and today Zaid and Ammar kept playing Bohemian Rhapsody, the Queens song, a lot at school, and we kept singing it all day long. It was awesome. We were jamming to it soo much =3 It was pretty cool. And then it got stuck in my head, so I had to listen to it at home too =P

Well, I better study now for that huuuge Chemistry test I’ve got on ALL of Organic Chemistry that I still haven’t touched because of the play…

Possibly the Next Head Girl

HxH- Chimera Ant Arc- The Birth of the King & A Single Super Saiyan

I CALLED IT! I TOTALLY FREAKIN’ CALLED IT~!!

*Mandark’s evil laugh/my success laugh* HA HA HA HA!
Muahahahahahaha xD

What am I on about? THIS.

When they started the Chimera Ant Arc in Hunter x Hunter (2011 remake), I wondered what the king would look like. And I didn’t really put much thought into that either, as a matter of fact, I barely even finished wondering that when Brian the Brain went, “Oh, it’d be totally epic if it turned out to be Cell.” Super perfect, ironic, and making this anime much more like other super popular/famous anime. I already found a link with Naruto, and now, will it have a link with Dragon Ball Z too? (wait, doesn’t Cell show up in GT..? I don’t know. GOOGLE~!)

Nope, I was right, he is from DBZ. And, just look! This is Cell, an insect-like humanoid thingie. Oh, and Cell’s got a bunch of different ‘forms’ as everyone on Dragon Ball Z does =P

Cells

1351996-cellperfectkamenv

cell-dragon_00380237

Kay, now that you know/remember what Cell looks like, check out this…This is the King, Meruem, and my first thought was obviously “I CALLED IT!!” because he looks just like Cell! Well, OK, not JUST like, buuuuut pretty darn close.

This is the King, Meruem.

Meruem_appearence_2011^Was I not totally right?!

Ok, if they don’t look a like, they still look similar. And they even have similar POWERS!

Liiiike, Cell, in the form with the tail thing (same enough tails too!), he can literally drink humans, to become stronger. Well, if the humans strong, then it’s strength will be transferred to Cell, making Cell stronger. This King here does the same thing with eating humans. But it’s with those humans that can use nen, but that’s just the plot of the show. After all, Cell would naturally be a LOT stronger if he drank Super Saiyans through his tail instead of eating normal humans, but once more, that’s gotta do with the plot. Since Hunter x Hunter’s only got one Super Saiyan while DBZ obviously has so many more.

Hm? What’s this? You don’t know of the Super Saiyan in HxH?? Well, allow me to enlighten you. See, remember the Phantom Troupe? The Spider? Yup, them.

Well, one of them, named Shalnark, #6. The guy with the remote controller? The dude who’s a manipulator? This guy-

shalnaaark

gjyf

 

Yeah, well, in one episode, during the Chimera Arc, he was forced into a corner, and he used a solution he isn’t particularly fond of using (cuz it always ends up with the big guys back in the animation studio getting buried up to their necks in Law Suits.)

HE goes SUPER SAIYAN. To be perfectly clear, and technically correct, he goes into ‘auto pilot’ which is when he sticks one of the antennae he carries around to jab into people he wants to control, into himself. And sets it to ‘auto pilot’. Bam- he instantly goes blonde, and there’s even and aura of yellow! He goes Supar Saiyan.

shalnark super saiyan version

So that’s the one single Super Saiyan in HxH. So far. Dun dun duuuun.

And with that, I poof off to enjoy some more HxH on the last day of my winter holidays D=

I also continued watching BeyBlade today~! ^_^

And and I finished Toradora…but more on that later =P

TarotCardsTake I: Winning Gold at the Olympics

This happened some time last year, but back then i lapsed into a ‘bleh, my blogs boring me’ kinda mode where i neglected it, but now i wanna mention this here wee incident.

My friend Mariam knows how to read tarot cards, and one day, we were messing with them. so i wanted to do a general ‘what ill be in the future’ thing and so she did. I pulled a card- Pick a card, any card!- and i pulled out this one that told of a very happy future for me. and i shall tell you how i interpreted it.

Well, first ill have to describe it though. It was completely yellow. There was a guy with huuuge angel wings spread out, flying. he was surrounded by gold, sparkly coins (yes, there were Team Rockets blasting off agaaaain kind of sparkles!) There were also some plain and simple white rings/circles, but i dont remember whether they were linked or not, but they were five of them. i think =P

Now for my very epic, and awesome interpretation that predicts my happy, rich, bright, fun, cool future.

gold coins and rings: i will obviously win gold at the olympics. this came as a shock to me, but if you think about it, its so makes sense of my capabilities =P and in what sport? Flying. duh. i already know how to fly, i just dont in public so, you know, i dont get shot down, or sued by superman, or taken in for experimentation. but, all my friends do, and now so does anyone who reads this post. shh, im batman! ok, yeah. so i win gold at the olympics for flying skills. hell yeah. on a bright, sunny, YELLOw day =P

my awesome, completely unpredictable interpretation. =P you may now have your mind blown.

guess winning gold at the olympics just runs in the family. My grandfather on my mothers side/ my maternal gramps/ my nana won gold at the olympics, representing my home country, in the sport hockey, and obviously im super proud of him from that. it is an awesome feat, dontcha thing? =* too bad he’s gone now, but ill always respect and love him ❤ and i know hell be so proud of his little girl winning gold too, for something as cool as flying =’) *sniff*

on the note of my amazing flying skills:

i also happen to sell illegal rainbow jetpacks, but only awesome people and people with an aptitude for flying and its sheer coolness may see them, let alone use them. so if you dont believe me/ cant get your jet pack to work, its just not meant for you =P haha, sucks to be you!

ok, enough gloating that i can fly and most others cant. (hell yeah, im Frosty the Flying-won-gold-at-the-olympics snowman! =D )

so have you ever had weird tarot experiences, or just had fun interpreting them yourself? or asked funny questions and gotten even funnier answers? if you have, feel free to discuss them in the comments, i find this kind of tomfoolery super awesome and a great  time to chill and hang and goof off with friends!

i know i have, and i shall be expressing them here, so stay tuned =P

Next time: The Tale of the Knights of the Round Table; The Tale of the Knights on the Square Horses.

and ill also post this one time when we did my future husband. it was pretty weird =P and my friends futures were hilarious, so that comes here too!

hahaha, hope this kind of thing wasnt an entire bore =P i had fun remembering this shit, and how fun it was chilling with my friends and the tarot cards =)
