Orange (Anime) Update: Ep 8 (and Optimism about Shokugeki no Souma 2)

[Spoiler Alert]

It was bad enough they gave poor Suwa a letter, but now they’re lame enough to have EVERY PERSON IN THEIR GROUP get one too?! Are you bloody kidding me?!! It was impossible enough that the stupidest girl in the group somehow accomplished time travel to send a letter back in time, but now they did it three more times (in addition to Suwa)?!! UGH this show is just- I don’t even know :/ On the other hand, it’s still alright ish.

Let’s also ignore how Kakeru is stupid enough to think that by somehow NOT dating Naho, he’s making it impossible for himself to hurt her. Uhhh that’s not how it works :/ “Have fun without hurting her feelings”. What, you think by acting like a couple and yet not being one is somehow going to stop her from feeling pain if you are stupid enough to get roped into some more of that first gf of yours’ drama? Geeeez.

So uh yeah. However, Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara is going brilliantly ❤ The only slight issue I have with that was Takumi’s loss against stupid gangster imitator thug >.> But they did have him kinda make up for it by handing his mezzaluna to Souma until he can win it back was super cool ❤ And funny when Souma went, “See, true chef’s are total sore losers” xD

Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara~!

THE SECOND SEASON OF SHOKUGEKI NO SOUMA IS OUUUUT~!!
(Ni no Sara means something along the lines of “the second plate”.)
(Well, it came out a day and a half ago, but I tried to wait for Alya to watch it with.)

So Alya and I started Shokugeki no Souma together when it first came out, but we never found a mutual time to finish the first season. So we had that last episode left and I tried to get her to watch it with me now that the second season started. But she kinda made me wait a day and hasn’t replied since, so I just went ahead and finished it.

ONWARDS TO THE SEASON 2

AND OH MY GOSH the hype the drama and the shokugekis have just been crazyyyy in this first episode and the last one of season one!! I have MISSED this show and I can’t WAIT for more! I’ve been waiting for this for so long and after Haikyuu, I have desperately been in need of an anime that gets me that hyped up and excited. Well, here it is ❤

And although this show is so very verryyyy different from most of the anime I watch and just different from most anime altogether, it’s hilarious and totally a must watch! It’s just freaking brilliant ❤

Let the main Autumn Election Tournament bloody finally begin! 😀

Working!!

…I started another anime ^_^;

Who knew I’d ever end that sentence with such an emoji…

Anyhoo, I sorta felt like watching a random slice of life sort of anime, and then I remembered that Working!! had gotten a third season this Summer, so I took a look at it from the beginning.

And that’s how I kinda saw all of the first season and half of the second. Ehehe… (At least each season is only single cour!)

There’s not a single normal character working in this cute story set in a family restaurant. Add in love triangles, “ideal family” relationships (and the lack of them), and all the quirks you get an entertaining little anime that makes you smile if not laugh :3

Taneshima speaks to me with her constant struggle for not looking her age and being so short. YOU ARE NOT ALONE, POPURA!! But even I’m not that short, so…it does make me feel a little better to know I’d probably tower over her if were were able to compare heights :’D

Takanashi, not gonna lie, kinda creeped me out when he was first introduced. He just acted incredibly shady around poor Taneshima and I was like- “ruuuuun! This loony’s about to kidnap you!!”But he didn’t. Thank gosh.

AH!

I reeeeaaally wanna talk about this one character though- lookie in the first picture. You see how there’s that one dark haired girl way in the back? With glasses? Look, she’s there- I swear. Yeah, her. 

The anime shows her interacting with the customers in background shots, and working her normal waitress job all the time, but they not once introduce you to her until the absolute freaking LAST episode of season 1! Aaargh, talk about infuriating!! They introduce all the workers and focus on their interactions so it was rather strange that they never really show you her until then. She also apparently keeps her distance from all the other workers because she thinks they’ll “taint” her normalcy xD The funny part is, one, she’s not wrong, and two, she isn’t normal either! But she’s convinced she is. Oh well.

Then there’s this gem.

Satou-kun, you are the bomb. So you can get a lot from this picture even xD He’s super cool and nice, but he also bullies Takeshima whenever Yachiyo (the one with the katana) puts him in a bad mood by gushing over Kyouko. Now, why would he care? Because love triangle. Duh. Satou fancies Yachiyo, but Yachiyo fancies Kyouko. And Kyouko…her heart, much like her stomach, is filled with food and only food.

But oh my gosh, can’t Satou please get with Yachiyo?! The poor bloke totally deserves it by now!

There’s so much more to ramble on about. I’m a little curious about Yamada’s actual story- like, not how she’s very pathetically lying about having run away from home. But her determination to find her own ideal family is insane, especially since she keeps attacking Otoo-san to bring her back adoption papers so she can be his kid xD

And Souma! He’s like one of my favourite characters. Seriously, he’s up there with Satou. He’s so evil, but he is so cordial and polite, it’s terrifying! He seems like he’d be friendly, but just as Takanashi learned, all it takes is half a conversation for one to truly realize how diabolical this guy really is. Inspirational ❤ Just kidding! But I do love to see it so much :3

Inami orginally really repulsed me and irked me SO MUCH. But she’s sorta alright now. I think. Meh. But you know which characters till are very ugh-inducing? Takanashi’s family -___- Well, everyone except Nazuna. Though we all know she’s about to grow up to be the evilest of them all, just as Takanashi envisioned.

And Takanashi cross dressed xD Oh my gosh, that’s hilarious!

Okay, that’s about it on this 😀 Imma go back to finishing season two. Then maybe I’ll continue Akagami no Shiryuki-hime? I’m not sure about that…but it’s getting a second season this Winter! Ugh, what to do, what to do? Then there’s Gate too…

Meh, one thing at a time, for now! So, back to Working!! season II :3
