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*

 

Two Rooms, Two Parties, Two Dates?

A Land with Parties, and Totally Weird Public Transport.

^The initial name to this post, but I never got round to telling the transport bit, so that’ll go in another (postponed) post. So I decided to rename this half of the story too.

So I had another weird dream last night.

It started off with me at some kinda party. And it was in a white square room, bearing resemblance to a typical anime classroom. It was full of people partying, dancing, talking, drinking punch, having a good time, the like. There were silhouettes of people that I couldn’t make out. But all the girls were in colorful dresses, and the boys were either in suits or T-shirts and shorts (i don’t know why =/). Lights were flickering, it was a blast!

Even I was in a knee-length dress, and that’s a tad weird. It was a midnight blueish purple, and I was wearing it with elbow length super fancy gloves.

Anyways, we partied. But then after a bit, the room changed. It became smaller, the lights became classroom lights, the people seemed to have left. The only ones in the room now were kinda geeky looking and nerdy people having punch, a few talking to each other, a few on gaming consoles or just sitting awkwardly in corners.

So I notice that there’s got to be more to the party than just this, and following my gut feeling, I leave the room and (the door leading to the class room was in a hallway like so – other door |     |classroom door) and so I walked across to the other parallel door that took me to another party.

A birthday party. And apparently I hated the birthday girl. But to be the total prick I wanted to be, I stayed, ate cake, had a blast, made some new friends, and overall, infuriated her immensely. There was a conga like and after loads of unwrapping gifts and party games, that was the end of that. Everyone’s leaving. Now I’m not sure how we make it here, but we do. Scene shiiift.

Now everyone’s outside, in this mall like set up, with this cinema ish door and ramps leading up to it. Now, I’m talking with this kid, who’s my age, but shorter than me, in a brown suit, round eyes and an innocent smile, and a mop of brown hair. We’re talking and chilling, and walking up and down those ramps. Out of the blue, he asks me out. Whaaat? And I get confused, and he tries to explain that he doesn’t know why but he wants to go on a date with me (very flattering.) But then he gets an emergency call, flustered, and just runs off.

I run off in the opposite direction, and come across this other girl whom I was had become friends with at the second bash. She kinda reminds me of Bisky, from HxH, but not entirely. She had a tanned complexion, twin tails with goldenish brown hair, star hair ties, and a blue, white and yellow frilly flowy dress that was matched completely with other stars too. She looked like a kid, very tiny and petite, shorter than even me. By a little less than a head.

Now we hang out for a bit, but I realize she’s either being overly-friendly or she’s (practicing?) flirting with me. Either way, we hang out at this food court/cafeteria area, and then I randomly hug her and ask this (convenient) photographer to take a picture of us. And she freaks for a bit, cuz I hugged her, but then she kinda acts excited after that. (there were random photographers around to take pictures.) Now, this photographer began to take a picture of this group of people sitting at a table near us first, and we held the pose just waiting for him to finish.So I’m looking in his direction. Another photographer shows up and already snaps a picture, with me looking elsewhere. So I politely ask for another, he complies and then-

For some reason, the chick I was hanging out with, bursts into tears, and runs away, dropping a glass slipper as she went. And I’m just left there thinking…I get to be Prince Charming to another chick, or I become the princess taller than the Prince dressed in Brown?! Da hell, Brain?!!

(I’m not bi =/)

Que tumble weed, silence, and whooshing sound effect as I’m left standing there, thinking that.

Snap. A picture to remember.

Man, this dream was weird =/ and pointless.

Oh, but there’s the weird public transport story…but I guess I’ll make that a part two and post that tomorrow. It’s really late, and I’m suuper sleepyyy =/

So later then!

Sweet and strange dreams!

A lil’ Story about a Charles and a Miss C

So I finished Paper Towns by John Green yesterday. But thats not what thats about. thats where this BEGAN. So here we go, and only wait to see where we shall end up. Let the way my brain works fascinate and baffle you now.

So Paper Towns. Johh Green. Discussing with Shallot. But then, we start discussing book collaborations, like WIll Grayson, WIll Grayson. Where, according to ayesha, the authos collaborated in a mind-boggingly brilliant way. They both name their characters Will Grayson. Thats all with the collaboration. They then just move on and write their own stories, of two different characters, two different entities, two different minds and bodies. They just share the same name. and then the two meet.

and up til that meeting, they dont show each other their work. Their writing, their stories of their WIll Grayson so far. And so that’s what we are doing. Ayesha and I are writing a small or short story (haha, lets just SEE how short itll be with me writing half of it =P) and were collaborating like that. with just a name to know. but we did collaborate a bit more, so the stories can mesh more, and since we arent proffesional authors like the authors of Will Grayson, Will Grayson, we decided to share some information about the characters to each other. Like how one shall be a girl, the other a dude. Im writing in the point of view of the dude, obviously. and ayeshas doing the chick. and so then we’ve got the shared name, as well as the shared age (17, junior in high school.) Ah, but the name. We decided on Taylor and then i rapidfire last names (DeLucas and Rosenfield were shot down =( ) and i said Sharbatski, like Robin Sharbatski, from How I met Your Mother. Wohoo. so now weve got Taylor Sharbatski. and then i threw in one other common ground…they should have the same letter middle name, but we should give them different middle names. So we decided on the letter C. this will also make it possible for us to distinguish between our two characters. (ahem, besides the fact that they are both of different genders…)

SO my dudes named Taylor Charles Sharbatski. and hes going to be the funny main character with a serious and philosophical best friend. and hes going to have the annoying ability of being that american (gora, HAH.) boy that shall randomly and spontaneously ‘put on airs’ with the assistance of a fake british accent, wohoo!

(shallot was actually worried that i wouldnt be able to find a dude middle name that began with the letter C. I said into the phone, around 3 seconds after she said that ‘Charles’. and that is the end of that.)

So her characters Taylor C. Sharbatski, a little Miss C to me, since i dont yet know her middle name. and thats that.

Our characters will both be in the wonderful continent of the United States of America, and shall both be- i forgot. no, i SERIOUSLY forgot. .____. oh nuo.

oh wait, no i remember. this is the part where i explain how we non-proffesional writers shall be going about this collabortation. were doing a short story, remember, so its going to be 5 chapters each. with no limit as to how long each chapter can be, which works perfectly for the both of us. and then after we make it to the third chapter, we shall read each others works so that we can see the stories and life of the other Taylor C. Sharbatski. Then we shall collaborate and find a way to make the two meet some where in their lives. and then well take the story somewhere from there. yeah, well totally cross that bridge when we get there.

I suggested we have the two meet on a school trip and have them get the wrong keys to the other Taylors room. that could be fun. (haha, i can see Miss C walk in on the serious philosophical friend reading Moby Dick and just be like ‘da hell..?’ and i can TOTALLY see Charles turn around in a swivel chair, close a book he was supposedly reading (upsidedown), and say ‘ive been expecting you…’ only to have Miss C’s roomie walk in, whos a girl, duh. The look on his face when he sees a girl walk in will be hilarious. he could fall out of his chair and be like ‘thank the lord!’ in his head. Oh, if im narrating. and if we do that. la la la~)

So now i have to decide whether i want to type this out HERE or on my laptop, on MS word. thing is, i really hate MS word =/ but ill need a constant internet connection on this thing, so i  might not be able to do it as often, like when the nets down, or at school, or whatever. bleh. so lets just see.

But yeah. Writing a storyyyy, yeah!

The Deaths of the Deer

(plural of deer? what kinda collective noun do you use for deer? a pack? a flock? a…HERD! thats it, right? so happy i got it! =) but now i cant say ‘grammar nazis unite!’ anymore =( pooh.)

A funny story concerning collective nouns: my best bud, ayesha’s younger bro has some interesting kids in his class (the 6th grade). they were doing an exercise on collective nouns. and one of those interesting kids…wrote for a ____ of tigers…he wrote…a FLOCK. yep. just imagine. geese are migrating south for winter, and then majestically, a tiger swoops over to gobble them whole, with its gorgeous wide spread eagle wings. hahahaha, hilarious. i love kids sometimes =D

Oh, want the best snack for winters? A grill cheese sandwhich. JUST KIDDING. minus the cheese. totally serious. PLUS nutella. such melted warm goodness =3 *drool*

Anyways, the deer now.

i went to a debate practise session today, at Hoti’s place. now, as soon as i entered i was confused as to where to go (she hadnt answered her door, but her worker/cook/person dude there did) since there are two staircases; one leading up, and one down. after i say hello..? and my friend ayesha and my coach tell me to climb the stairs, i do. and the wall touching the sorta spirally stairs was – COMPLETELY covered in atleast eight, i shit you not EIGHT, deer heads. super huge ones that looked fake, normal ones that looked real except that it looked like they had twigs on their heads instead of horns, and even -AW! =( – baby deer! (filly? no, thats a horse…) it was sad. but i was chill when i got up to the session, and i didnt act creeped out by this, and everyone was shocked at my reaction, my lack of reaction, my utter chillness, and acceptence. sure, who ever did it was and is a heartless beast for doing so, but its not my place to say so. i mean, i know that but i still would have, if id known who had done it (no one but the debaters where there, the host/hosts were not present. breaking and entering…just kidding, they were in another room, s’all =P

And then we discussed the debate topic, and agenda. and now on tuesday is the actual debate. but cuz of timing clashes with my tutions, i am now going to come late (only attend the last hour). and thus i getting to JUDZGE. random z typo. but it looks cool, so ill just leave it there =P yeps, im weird ^_^

and it gets weirder. (and you thought i was done…ha!)

as we were leaving, i noticed something else in the main entrance room. there were about three/a bunch of rooms to my left as i entered the house, and the stairs on my right. so now, i noticed something on the top of the door frames. i guess i didnt notice it before cuz i was just nervous (entering someone elses house for the first time does that to me, especially if i dont know them. dont know why, just does. =S is that weird? am i the only one?) or something (ha, not really =P theres no point pretending to be normal now…) and i missed it but i pointed it out, and apparently i was the only one to notice it too. (im usually a lot more observant that this. just saying.) there were deer heads there too. no, wait thats incorrect. they were SKULLS. *shudder* super creepy. ugh.

now how the hell am i supposed to go to sleep? -.-” i really shouldve written about That Typo Bus before going to sleep instead…*Sigh* oh well, now ill just listen to 1D and go to sleep =P

Ciao~

yeah. im italian too. deal with it =P B) 😉
