Detective Conan Episode 887 – 888

Yay another new year with Conan!

KAITOOOO KIDO!!!!

OP became so freaking high quality, super detailed backgrounds with realistic shading and highlights. Looks like they’re showing off their new year new anime making standards. Well, conan quality has definitely been changing and will continue improving with the years!

Again with Samizu Kichiemon~

BIGU JEWEL DESUWA LMAO LMAO LMAO

The Internet Conan uses still looks freaking old though.

Does this guy only know how to cook stewed meat and potatoes?? Oh right, they’re probably the easiest aside from curry. 😛

At 04:55 when they made Haibara’s unnecessary head turn I was like, oh why are they following modern anime art direction with all those redirections and face turns OMG. It’s not even a freaking romance drama!

Oh suspense music. What’s with that random photo taking. That better not be a random effect. -,-‘

Oh lol, Kuroba is so cute.

Some insane box that is.

Conan’s kid sensors tingles.

I guess the girl Suzuki, since she’s the most unlikely to be. Watching conan has taught me how to guess culprits. 😛

I like Conan being ecchi. 😛

Doitsumo Koitsumo (this person and that person)

Kogoro’s as bullshit as usual can’t be him.

I’m just like: Oi Kaito Kid why do you always look at Conan to watch for that “I know everything now” face

Eh?

They should call him Magic Conan.

I like.

 

Oh no evil teacher next episode~!

Imouto Sae Ireba Ii Episode 12

Title drops everywhere! Small Itsuki is cute, but probably what you might call a loner, who escapes into the fantasy world of light novels.

After having his heart broken by an older sister character, his first few words were about how he wasn’t even a minor character, and someone not important at all. I suppose after reading so many stories, he became conscious of his importance, he wanted some recognition or some sort, to become a main character.

OP starts! Nice transition into OP! I guess writers do have to experience most of the feelings they write to depict them well. Did the OP change slightly to have Nayuta turn around at the end?

Another beer. How many types of alcohol are they gonna promote in this anime, haha…

ohe~ –Nayuta

That game has an interesting twist, instead of money it’s happiness that decides your win. Sort of like how people’s money is used as a means to an end, which is happiness, the money in game is used to add to the dice rolls.

Nayuta wins the major label, but not Itsuki. Compare with how Nayuta’s light novel sells so much better than Itsuki’s that she is in a different league. The game actually reflects their real life! The game rather accurately depicts the barriers to entry into each field, with internet writers having no barriers at all, all they have to do is upload their written story. Next up would be to see how the different roles play out.

The amount of money they earn is vastly different, as for the net novelist, he gains happiness points directly but earns no money. Itsuki fails to debut repeatedly. Really reflecting the harsh reality here.

Nayuta misses a deadline and misses 5 turns, meanwhilst the other characters gain better luck this time. Perhaps we can’t say Nayuta is a winner just yet!

…it’s become a competition of who has the least negative happiness point… The life of a light novel writer is hard indeed…

Replacement anime, no wonder they were so bad. I can’t really think up any real life examples of replacement anime though.

As long as I have a longing for a little sister, I can go on forever! <= Is probably why Itsuki is never told that Chihiro is actually a girl. But what happens when Itsuki finds out next episode? Can’t wait!

 

 

Imouto sae Ireba Ii Episode 11

Well, at least Itsuki feels the pressure and keeps to the deadline. At the expense of passing out and having an unshaven beard.

That guy’s drunk? Welcome to the world of weirdies Miyako >W<)

Anata, nani mono? Miyako is magic friend of Nayuta and can see her anytime, roar! And get the manuscript for you 😀

Multiple platforms to write, so you can write on the go.

This episode dwelves into the world of editors, and how tough their work can be.

Miyako best yandere.

Yay more games aside from TRPG.

Once Upon A Time, storytelling with cards. Seems really fun!

Chihiro uses Interrupt card to get the main character and sister together again because she is a little sister herself. 😀

Poor Miyako XD

I want to be a protagonist. SO this is what’s this is about. OP lyrics did address that, but the story never really mentioned anything about it until now.

Aww Nayu was secretly listening in. ////

Mahou Academy will be made into an anime! Good news, Itsuki, one step closer to being with Nayu.

Imouto sae Ireba Ii Episode 10

Starts with a gloomy flashback.

So Chihiro’s a step-brother? Well step-brothers are not blood-related, so it’s okay! Not~ Yes of course who wouldn’t get along well with Chihiro who’s so kind. >w<)

Did I mention I absolutely love the OP music and graphics?

imoutosaegooddesign.jpg

They use icons! A clean and neat design is why I love this anime so much.

Chokes. Why Ashley?! At least perhaps we may see more fanservice. Crossdressing sensors alert! You want to become an imouto, right Chihiro.

More like Ashley is concerned about appearances but too lazy to clean up the rest ;P Perhaps it’s just a regular cleaning job after all…

honki wo dashite 😮 Super powered Chihiro maid. Totally not a reference to Shounen Maid 😛

Ofuro? Here’s where the trap is, yes? 😏

Oh wow reverse trap that’s fun too – Chihiro’s a girl?! Why keep it from his brother though?

This description is creeping me out 😑 Is anything cute as long as it’s called an imouto?!

Once bitten twice shy, the threats work better too.

Tekai, nani ga tekai datou??? Zoo and innenudos and making them lewd. Reminds me of Shobitch XD

Eh possessed zoo animals?

Yay Chihiro~ Cute girl~ Housewife mode. Let’s cook up all the fish!

Chihiro best girl.

Oh no, the problem arises. Oh, taxi to talk longer huh! Oh no, don’t become a vulgar girl Chihiro!

Cold family problems.

I love the ED music.

Nothing much to talk about this anime really, cause it is really slice-of-life mostly. Except the rift between Itsuki and his dad.

thatwasashittyanimetotheend

You talking about this anime, bro? Wanna fight?

Tsundere sister. How sweet. I realise that there’s a lot of beer introduced in this anime? Maybe lot’s of them drink lots in real life too.

Feels like all the male characters have imoutos. Except that Itsuki doesn’t know that he has one. 😛

3-gatsu no Lion S2 Episode 10

How many times have I said I love the OP? ^^;

We get a look into Junkei’s thoughts on working hard to beat your rivals. It’s really tough.

The start is easy, but to go pro is hard. That’s how people wear out.

Strength of heart huh. Smile against all odds.

Want to be young again and try without fear? Flowers from you know who.

That “bakayarou” said with so much fondness? =w=

Oh, so the pigeon left for a while while he went to shogi? “Let’s make it a race to see who flies first.” Sounds like youth.

Hina!

Sudden mood change~~~ How fun! Parfait toppings probably add up to quite an amount. But I guess Kiriyama has the money… ^^:

But I guess treating the sisters to dinner would be better than upright giving them money for home tuition -,-||

甘いAmai 塩っぱいShioppai loop! Sweet-salty loop! Cold hot cold hot!

I completely sympathise with Kiriyama’s and Grandpa’s facepalm now XD

Hina x Kiriyama ship !!

They purposely showed Hina with both shoes on, and her vibrant expression and voice. Contrast to when she was bullied. One person appearing can really save someone. All you need is one person only.

Kiriyama boyfriend material already, preparing food cause he could anticipate Hina wouldn’t be able to eat well. Kiriyama’s good memory may help him become a great boyfriend 😀

ハンパない=半端ない?not incomplete?
hanpannai

知らない町の川べりなのに、れいちゃんが隣座ってくれただけで、
shiranai machi no kawaberi nanoni, reichan ga tonari suwatte kureta dakede
At the river of an unknown town, but simply with Rei-chan sitting next to me,

いつもの川べりような気持ちになった、
itsumo no kawaberi you na kimochi ninatta
it became like the feeling of the usual river (at home),

知ってる場所いるみたいに落ち着いた。
shitteru basho iru mitai ni ochitsuita
calm, just as if (we were) at a familiar place.

This isn’t just any riverbank scene, it’s actually a celebration of Rei x Hina. Their most emotional moments have always been near the riverbank. There was Hina grieving over her deceased mother, there was the bullying at school, and now there’s this. Their backs together really make a good picture.

“The medicine worked, Hina?” says Akari. Both literal and figurative in that Rei’s also the medicine to Hina’s loneliness caused by bullying! :3

This contrasts with season 1 in which Akari was the main caregiver of the family, including caring for Rei, now Rei learns to care for Hina, and Momo. He leveled up! 😀

Humming along with the ED~

Detective Conan Episode 885

Heiji looks pissed. 😛 Ran totally sensed that.

Wow reading minds like Conan, knowing why Heiji came along. Meant to be a date? Probably.doisenseromanceran

OP with spinning pictures… don’t really like this OP that much. Lie lielie wy why why

Hahaha, Heiji competing with Kudo in where to confess love at. Flashback -rolls eyes-

tama tama -smirks-

Random Amuro slides by, whispers stuff about Friday the 13th

Probably undercover detective~ OHHH the murder mystery starts, will the guy in the toilet be murdered 😀 Wow someone is so popular has so many male prospects… XD

Random spark? NAW it’s the murderer’s plan. So the murderer, or to-be-murderer probably fiddled with the charger.

How did blood splash so realistically on Conan’s and Heiji’s face… How did the murderer, if it’s the person in the toilet, know their seating postitions?

No blood splashes cause they threw the knife? ;P Because if it’s not hard then it’s not fun for us to watch~

The irony when it’s Conan who says this: areyousureyourenotcursed

Poor Heiji having a murder on the day he wants to confess his love. Nice cover. It’s a murder movie XD

Why did the blood only splatter in one direction…

Motive found, boyfriend knew he was flirting with his girlfriend. That synchronised naruhodoなるほど tells me they already suspect that plump guy for sitting right next to the victim, but of course it’s not going to be him. B)

Amuro’s a chemistry student? Hehe. Stop revealing all your smart ass skills you’re supposed to be undercover, dammit!

Feels like the police evolved, now they’re even suspicious of the guy in the toilet whom appears impossible to be the murderer. I’d say Conan’s cases in the past really have made the police better and more ready to investigate thoroughly rather than decide immediately like a non-sleeping Kogoro.

Amuro doing the shh finger and wink. Whatcha up to kiddo.

Kogoro eating dinner alone. Or not alone, in front of a huge upgraded TV screen featuring his favourite idol. Surprisingly lack of interest in the police cars parked downstairs despite being a detective. Shiratoki are white transluscent noodles made from konjac yam. Quite delicious I would imagine, and probably what Ran and Kazuha had in mind intially before they turned it into curry. Curry really is the lifesaver huh, everything goes well with it. Even noodles in curry rice. B)

Is all Kogoro does is look into affair cases? -,-|||

Wada Shinichi??! Why. One is Shinichi, Kudo’s name. Coincidence? The other name is Wada, which is Watson’s name in Japanese. Why the suspicious pause when he took out his phone. He almost said he used his phone light to see.

Why borrow Shinichi’s name though. Want to search for Kudo Shinichi? -.-

3-gatsu no Lion S2 Episode 9

The OP is rocking awesome no matter how many times I’ve heard it already. ^_^

I really love the slice-of-life balance that this show has, adding in the fun stuff at the start, for instance daily life in the 3 sisters’ warm home. Without them we won’t be able to endure Kiriyama’s (sometimes/somewhat) boring shogi, I’ll bet. 😛

People don’t say はい in Japan, they say うん in response. For informal stuff. If it’s responding to a question that requires more diligence like from a teacher, I suppose a loud “Hai!” would be more appropraite.

Oh my, school trip what about the bullying. Ugh. Anxiety stomachaches. Hina’s really worried. 苦しkurushi indeed. If she doesn’t go, it’ll seem like she’s backing out and admitting defeat, in my opinion. I really wish to bash those bullies up but I know I won’t be able to in real life. 😛

“I wanted to have memories of not running away”, huh. It’s kind of sad to have to run away or avoid the entire 11 years or so, right Kiriyama.

Looks like Takahashi x Hina ship is in the makings. :3

Hina fights, Nikaidou fights, Kiriyama fightooooo! “Fighting for their one little place in the world.” Fight=戦いtatakai until night?!

That seems like a very undignified way to win. Using Nikadou’s weak health to their advantage.

Swirling of leaves, noise, then well placed silence. ふざけるな Fuzakeruna! Well said, Kiriyama.

Here’s where I feel the Live Action did better than the Anime, in the sense that Nikaidou’s warnings are easier to recall in Live Action as it was said not too long before, compared to the Anime where it is harder to recall, all the way from season 1?

Feels like Nikaidou best bro, understands Kiriyama the best. No, go away yaoi fangirls XP

But the anime is tonnes more emotional than Live Action.

He must be really good at multitasking huh Kiriyama, thinking of all sorts of things as he plays. O_O

No, I can’t read the shogi chessboard, but looks like Kiriyama won 😀

Oh look stomach ache medicine. Immediately thinks, oh Hina! hashiri hashiri run!

O_O I think I went there recently. It looks almost exactly the same, that famous shopping street in Kyoto. They have a manga store there too! You might want to check out Teramachi street and Shinkyogoku. Not advertising for anyone. 😛

Why do all school trips in Japan seem to be to Kyoto ^^;;

Find someplace alone to find Hina. Cute shocked expression. What’s with Kiriyama’s blush. I think even if you didn’t bring stomach medicine Hina would have appreciated you there anyway. 🙂

Seems unbalanced, too much Kiriyama x Hina stuff going on, Akari’s problems seem swept aside still. Perhaps the next few episodes might address them.

 

 

 

3-gatsu no Lion S2 Episode 8

I like Kiriyama’s sensei, more righteous and more mentally sound than Hina’s sensei. He’s so angry for Hina and Kiriyama he’s gonna commit murder. 😆

True… Kiriyama’s method of escaping and enduring contrasts Hina’s method of confrontation and righteousness.

A teacher, and a good teacher at that.

It got me laughing again. Monster Parents, so Monster Teacher! They have a good relationship there.

I love the soft piano music here.

「お前はお前にできる事、まず一個一個やるしかないんだよ」と
omae ni dekiru koto, mazu ikko ikko yaru shika naindayo, to
First, all you can do, is what you can do one thing at a time.

「深く息よして、一歩一歩行くんだよ」と
fukaku iki yoshite, ippo ippo ikundayo, to
Take a deep breath, and start walking one step at a time.

Now, this is not simply any motivational speech, but also a reference to the advice that Kiriyama received in season one, when he lost to Shimada. Take a deep breath, and look at the board in its entirety.

Nikaidou lost. sore, douiukotodesuka

shimatta, so Kiriyama was the only one left in the dark. Terminal Illness flag. Oh no.

Feels sad. Another talk. Flashback.

Cute round Nikaidou. Doesn’t want to be treated as a weakling and can only be strong on the shogi board due to weak body.

Similar to Kiriyama in the sense that pretty much all they had was the shogi board. Takes quite some desperation to get to that level of skill at elementary school level, I’ll bet.

“Rain like silver threads. Though he wavered, faltered and flinched, he had faith in himself and raced forward like a fireball.” He’s an enthusiastic round ball of determination for sure.

The rose blowing in the wind in the ED really makes an impact.

I really like how they have real images of places in the preview.

「霧山、次はボも一緒に飯も行こな」
Kiriyama, next time let’s have dinner together with boy. (bo in this case is Shimada’s close way of calling Nikaidou)
