Sorry to those who haven’t seen the episode and just saw these pictures. I bet you hate me a lot right now o_o; Then again, no one really reads this blog since I haven’t promoted it enough yet…
I’ll start right from the top. This episode can be described in one word: Pure win.
Shirley’s anxiety is illustrated very clearly, and intensely which was a great start to the episode. I really love how they used masks to portray the "fake" life that Shirley has been living in.
… but then i cried when i saw that O2 was replaced with some sissy opening theme song Q_Q sorry guys, but i thought this song kinda sucked q_q
I CONTINUE TO FIGHT > EVERYTHINGGGG IS BRAAAAAAAAYT
The ending theme song was OK… tho Ali Project’s songs seems like they’re running out of melodies for their songs so they come up with random crap that fits the style of the song. It still sounded alright :P
ORENJI-KUN~! That bastard finally gets more screen time xD He comes in and starts killing everyone, i was just like "SHIT SHIT SHIT" the whole time. Grrr this anime makes you wonder how the hell Orenji-kun is gonna interfer with lelouch, etc…
The fight between Sayako and Oreji-kun was like… awesome. Sayako needs more combat time because she’s such a kickass character.
After the whole Orenji-kun crash, the episode focuses back on Shirley. This scene was OK for me, and I felt like Shirley jumping off a building was really predicatble. But the words Lelouch said to Shirley were so simple yet so strong q_q … "…I don’t want to loose anything any more…" KYAAA lelouch~~~<3 You take my breath away~~~~<3
Afterwards, Orenji-kun invades and everyone goes into panic. Shirley is concerned for Lelouch so she goes out looking for him. After re-watching this scene, I just screamed "NOOOOOOOOOOO SHIIIIRRRLLLLEEEEEEY T_____T~~"
So yeah, lulu and orenji run into each other blah blah blah. lulu goes into sexy clever genius mode and stops Orenji-kun, only to figure out that Orenji wants to be one of lulu’s allies. GASP! At first i thought he was faking it, but you can’t really fake tons of blood gushing out of your eye, no?
And then it happens. Shirley and Rollo meet with each other. Oh dear lord q_q … WHY WOULD ROLLO DO SUCH A THING Q_______Q HAS HE NO HEART!?!?!??!
So Lelouch finds Shirley… shot q_q… this scene was like… WWRRRRRRRRRRRYYYYYYYYY Beautifully done tho q_q the way the animators showed how desperate lelouch was for shirley to live q_q… desperately using his geass and crying for her to live q_q NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
I was about to cry for Shirley… but then, i heard Lelouch’s "AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" and instead of crying, i ended up laughing like crazy. that like TOTALLY ruined the moment, and i blame that on the subs >_> goddamnit
So if you can’t already tell, I like… loved this episode
Overall Episode Score: 9.7/10
No 10/10 because the last scene was like totally ruined for me lol
Ok, i’m all done blogging for today because I can’t watch another episode since my sister just went to sleep. And yeah, i have to wait on my sister so we can watch the episodes together. But I’ll probably get to episode 14 tomorrow :D
