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*

Going to an Anime Convention?!

SO there’s an anime convention sort of happening HERE. Close to here, anyhoo.

And I wanna gooo! My friends have already decided everything by now. We’ve been planning this since Monday, but with all the changes, I didn’t post anything until it was all figured out. Although I’m sure the cosplaying will have some improvizing added on to it…inevitably =P

Ayesha, Mehrnaz, Alya, Shayan, Mateena, maybe Zaid, Shayan, and I are going. Or at least plan to. Half of us have yet to get permission. Yup, I’m a part of that half. Duh.

One thing that annoys me is that Ayesha’s tagging along even though she doesn’t watch anime, and refuses to. She’s only seen a few episodes of Vampire Night -.-” Even her mom doesn’t want to let her go, since she knows she isn’t even into anime.

Now, we were reaaaally stuck on what to cosplay as. We decided to do a group cosplay, so we needed a show with loads of characters..I was being all original, and saying let’s go as the BayBreakers, it’d be easy, and we all have the beyblades from our childhoods =3 But then Mehernaz and I got into a quarrel over being max -__- and I was told I should be Tyson, since I’m just as overconfident xD But then we dropped that in favor of the Bleach Captains! But we couldn’t afford their costumes, not properly at least, and so we had to think of something else. I suggested Isatski clan thing since all we’d need was to paint red clouds on long black coats. It’d be the best and saddest economical cosplay ever. But then it was ruled that I should randomly go as Ash Ketchum (I have no idea how that got thrown in xD ).

But now, we’ve decided on going as the guardians from Ka

tekyo Hitman Reborn! And I hadn’t seen it til they told me we were to cosplay as characters from there. So now, we’re ordering their rings off of Amazon, and we’ll go in their “suit modes”. Since otherwise, on such short notice, we can’t pull together individual costumes. Ugh, I wish we had more time! Then we could’ve cosplayed properly, and we’d be awesomely decked out in anime gear =(

Grr. But this’ll still be cool. I’m some Yamamoto dude, so I shall have the Mist ring? and I’ll be weilding a sword and shit, duh. I’m supposed to wear a black blazer (but I lack any black clothing, so I shall be borrowing one of Zaid’s blazers. He apparently has five black ones -.-“), a blue dress shirt (borrowing Mateena’s since mine has pink flowers on it xD ), and black dress pants. I just realized that my dress pants are too long, but are fine with heels…but if I’m cosplaying as a straight guy, I shouldn’t be wearing heels…I have these other black combat-ish boots that might work, but I’ll have to try it out. But I was supposed to be this other dude, le bandaged boxer, since he was yellow, the SUN. But since I refused to give my sword to anyone else, I decided to switch with Zara.

I’ll be dressing up as the guy with the Blueish shirt. The cropped black hair- I completely coincidentally typoed that as brack O.o –  I was going to be the one in the front in red, but Alya called dibs when I wasn’t there >.> And, there’s also the bandaged boxer on the right =) But they look so cool here…it’s going to look great when SIX chicks dress up as ’em, and one dude.

Oh yeah, remember Tsuna? No good- Tsuna? Well, that scrawny shortie is being cosplayed by ENRIQUE of all people. The tall, fat dude with a beard is going to pretend to be a five foot four middle schooler. That’s gonna work. Here’s what Tsuna looks like.

And cuz I saw this, and found it A-MAH-zing- Some Tsuna fanart, that’s just mindblowingly awesome ^_^

I’m even planning on buying a wig, and chopping that up for the hair. Since I got rid of my layers, I can’t french twist the longer ones out of the way, and hide them under the shorter ones like Mateena is…And Alya’s got her short boy hair, which works for her. And whoever’s going with the white hair’s going to have to get wigs anyways. Contrary to Alya’s economical alternative…

BLONDE ALYA MOMENT TIME-

So I’m supposed to go as a white haired dude first. We’re trying to think of what I could do with my hair in case we don’t find any white wigs. Hairspray? But my hair’d still be too long…Then Alya came in.
“Just put powder in it.”
me- “I’m not putting talcum powder in my hair!!”
“Noo, the normal Johnson and Johnson baby powder-”
me- “That IS talcum powder!”

And then we had to explain to Alya why we were dying laughing. Cuz I said I wouldn’t put talcum powder in my hair, and you basically said, oh, put Johnson and Johnson baby talcum powder in it instead! She just added a brand to the talcum powder to make all the difference.

Alya’s a blond at heart. She just is. There’s so much more to tell. Like the time she went blond at her tution…or the time Amal got one part to her math test wrong….I think I’ll embarrass Amal now, since Alya gets enough of me all the time at school ^_^

Sooo what did Amal do? She got her test back, and on this one hard question, she’s solved everything correctly except one part. And so she looks at it. And she has written the following-

1+1=1

Ladies and gentleman, Amal when her brain is dead. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s brilliant.

Now, I got cram school, so byyyye~

Ze Out!
