Well, now that the site is mostly fixed. Its time to do some blogging. Because I’m behind by miles again. But, what else is new? lol
Anyway, for those who are waiting for it.
Finally, TAMA IS HERE! And she can meet Ruu!
Though, she isn’t very happy about it. (Mayu, you suck. ><)
[su_label]The only reason to feel guilty about shipping RuuxIona (Ignoring mental sanity of course) [/su_label]
This episode is quite slow. But, it doesn’t mean it isn’t interesting. Quite a lot of the character motivation was explored, plus few teaser hints; as well as the awaited reunion at the end.
So let’s start with the most exploration and one that was eagerly anticipated. The question that was on everyone’s mind at the end of S1.
I. What the heck happened to Tama?
I’m supposed to be reviewing episode 3 today. But, I’m not on the right mind-set to write depressing stuff. So instead let’s review something funny.
Wait. Funny in WIXOSS?!
Night have you drunk some cool-aid recently? Have you watched the latest episode? Akira just got more psychotic ( yes, its possible). And the world has once again confirmed that it enjoys fucking with Ruu~ just because.
Are you sure you are describing the right setting? How can WIXOSS be WIXOSS without the schadenfreude derived from watching it?
Night thinks it over.
The BD special does enjoy poking fun at Ruuko so equilibrium restored.So yey?!
(Note, I didn’t draw this nor did I translate it. This is a video special from the BD and credits go to Asenshi for the translation. If you want the video, you can get if from their site.)
What is this for then?
Me. Having too much fun and messing around for the heck of it of course.
In any case, let’s enjoy the Midoriko-san and Piruluk-tan show!
We begin this episode with talking about a “MASTERMIND”.
Naturally, they meant Mayu, the mysterious girl in the white room. Unfortunately, the only known way of corresponding to Mayu is to become an LRIG. Something which is kinda a no-go. (unless your wish is to be an LRIG in the first place, then please do so and give us the juicy hints.)
As for me, I think there is an easier solution to their problem. WIXOSS is a card game right? It even have an official novel guide which is suspiciously true to life. Why don’t you girls investigate the company making this cards. A simple google will at least get you the higher-ups. And if you’re lucky you gals might even be able to pull some publicly available information regarding said higher-ups.
<psst> Remember, be on the look-out for trips to foreign locales such as Egypt or some tragic event in their background.
…. Oh wait. Wrong series. ^^
Still, I’m suspicious of the company making these cards. And some of the dropped information in the novel is starting to look ominous. Like the seven loses bursting-thing due to WIXOSS factor that has been stated. Considering the fact that failed Selectors can become Selectors again. I won’t discount that.
This game is looking more rigged by the minute. Fortunately, Ruuko is aware of this as well as we can see from her monologue.
When people dared you to do a make some posts about the one of the show that you are anticipating this season but is embarrassed to let people know, the right answer is to say no.
Sure, why not?
But, of course, my impulse control sucks so there we go.
Not that I believe Wixoss is embarrassing. Its one of the interesting TCG anime out there (Though, I suppose, it’s not really a TCG anime since the card battle appear to be superfluous …. which may or may not be the reason why I like it.) Still, I do believe, I’ll enjoy blogging it solely for the pathos and the atmosphere.
Plus, I think I threw my pride out of the window a long time ago when I publicly admitted to watching Saki and Sailor Moon. But, between Psycho Pass, Log Horizon and Unlimited Blade Works, this is probably the odd one out of the bunch. ^^
