Whenever I’m on vacation from school, my brain also goes on vacation, and thus I can’t find the time to write real entries. But hey, it’s been a while since I did a big quickie post, so I think I’m allowed to do one again. ^_^;

Kanon 20
I had to write about this one (and the last arc in general), because it’s done nothing but surprise me. The Yuichi/Ayu kiss scene was pretty, but it did seem a bit sudden. Earlier on in the series, I really liked their relationship and I still do. It just seems a bit strange to me now. I’m going to blame the pacing again, because I remember they did go on a date many episodes ago. It just seems like a long time, because after that there were huge arcs involving Yuichi’s relationships with three other girls. Giving them all that time was distracting from the main purpose of the series, I think. I’m not really sure what the point of Kanon is though, actually. Anyway, now Ayu’s school disappeared, her tree was cut down, and she’s mysteriously vanished herself. It was obvious from the start that there was something different about Ayu, but now I’m even more convinced that she’s supernatural. Well, it looks from the preview that she’ll be back by next week, so I hope to get some explanations.

Kyoushirou to Towa no Sora 07
I love how Mika is getting progressively more psychotic. She’s having Kaon get tortured again and it seems even harsher this time. Why do I like the crazy character so much? Setsuna surprised me in this episode. She’s still such a tragic character, but rather than going psycho like she seemed to be, she actually comforted Kuu in this episode. Also, she didn’t destroy the note like I thought, but instead just closed Kuu’s notebook. Although I’m rooting for Kyoushirou/Kuu, I just know I’m going to feel really bad for Setsuna in the end if they get together. It would be nice if Kyoushirou payed more notice to her. As of now though, it looks like Kyoushirou might have sex with Kuu. He did think that Kuu was being stupid for going into his room and stripping in front of him (I thought that was pretty stupid of her too, admittedly) but we never got to see what resulted in that. My theory is that they did nothing, but I wouldn’t be too surprised if they did have sex. Kuu was in a really awful state for the whole episode though, so I can see why she’d go into rash desperation like that. It was quite painful to watch her attempt to activate her Absolute Angel powers. Speaking of which, I wonder just what Kuu’s powers are. I’d also like to learn about the final AA, who was introduced this week. She didn’t do much at all.

Spider Riders 42
Mantid has gone way too far now. It’s finally been revealed that he never had the intention of restoring the Invectid world. Instead, all he wanted was the take the power for himself. I figured that out a long time ago, but now that it’s been explored in the show, I’d love to see how the other Invectids react to it. So far, only Beerain knows about it. She’s returned back to Mantid, but I doubt it’s going to be a very long stay, especially since Mantid’s threatened her now for finding out the truth. He hasn’t said quite what he plans to do to her yet, and I guess it’s wrong of me to hope it’s bloody. He did slash at her this week, but all he managed to do was cut off a few strands of her hair. Anyway, Mantid’s plan is causing a lot of problems. He’s attempting to take all of the Oracle’s power, which has led to the sun’s light disappearing almost completely. This in turn is taking power away from the Oracle Keys and hurting Corona and Aqune. And that creates some Hunter/Corona, just so you know. Hunter did seem to be concerned and Corona, despite her lack of power, forced herself to find the energy to give Hunter more power. And… there’s even a tiny bit of Buguese/Aqune too depending on how much you read into it, but this is me we’re talking about. Because Buguese seems to be concerned about Aqune. ^^ Anyway, there were some pretty funny things this week despite all the dark aspects. Hunter and Corona snuck into Mantid’s fortress by disguising themselves as a ghost. It was cute when they were trying to convince a random Invectid soldier that they were sick. I’m also amused by the fact that Mantid uses a podium and microphone-looking things to blatantly lie make speeches to his people.

duh duh duh duhhhhhhhhhh. how do you think the spider riders are going to stop this? Do you think that by distroying that crystal ball of mantids they might restore all of oracle’s power? I’m not to sure about that. I didn’t think that the only damage mantid could do to beerain was cutting off some of her hair. Hey, just remembered about Quake. He says, “its time”. wonder how he’s going to approach the spider riders. It might be more than a simple ‘POOF’ he’s in front of them. well, i’m glad he’s helping out, the spider riders are going to need some help. I think i read in a spoiler or something that one of the only ways to bring the oracle sun back was either if Hunter goes back to the surface of the earth…and i dont remember the other choice but i know that he stays in the inner world.

@Vicky- “I think i read in a spoiler or something that one of the only ways to bring the oracle sun back was either if Hunter goes back to the surface of the earth”
Only if the spoilers are correct, and for the most part, they haven’t been following the original plans. The Spider Riders are going to have to come up with something though and fast.

i kinda knew that that was mantid’s plan.i mean he didn’t really care about anyone or anything else.he just kept everything to himself.i know its probaly wrong of me but i kind of want the rest of the invectids to turn on mantid and go on the side of the spider riders.probaly like the final episode kind of thing.a very dramatic battle.

Comment by bb/puppyface 02.18.07 @ 7:01 pm

@bb/puppyface- I’ve actually been hoping for the Invectids to help the Spdier Riders all along, just because I don’t want to see them die. Actually, I could care less as to what happens to Beerain, but I’d rather see the others live ’til the end.

Comment by TL-chan 02.19.07 @ 4:07 pm

either way with me!both would make a realy dramatic conclusion.it might be neither with the directors view.but hopefully the next 10 episodes gives people a bit of a suprise.i’m not bored with it sometimes theres not enough action in some episodes.o’well we just have to find out.(the suspense is already killing me.*sigh*)

Comment by bb/puppyface 02.19.07 @ 5:25 pm

thats probably right because so far, we’ve had Stags and grasshop stop being evil and all, and i think that beerain’s going to tell the other invectids about what she heard. I don’t think that they’ll die, but i’m hoping mantid will. Actually, i’m very confident he will. What i’m looking forward to is Quake’s part in all this. He said so himself that it was time…

Comment by Vicky 02.20.07 @ 6:29 pm

@Vicky- Yeah, Quake is probably going to play an important role in the fight. I wonder what he plans to do. He seems to be quite powerful, but I bet Mantid is even stronger, at least after all the power he got now. Hopefully, Beerain will get to tell at least Buguese and Aqune about what happened, and then maybe they could all switch over. Everyone vs. Mantid would be very cool to see. Although, I can’t see it working out that easily. Buguese has been up to something for a while, and I still have no idea what. I also beleive that as long as he pretends to stay loyal to Mantid, Beerain will probably do so as well. Until Aqune’s new mask breaks, she probably won’t switch sides either (although it’s inevitable that she will soon after.)

Comment by TL-chan 02.20.07 @ 7:43 pm

i still think Aqune’s ear rings are way to long.

Comment by Vicky 02.21.07 @ 5:04 pm

@Vicky- Yes, they are. They’re rather interesting though.

Comment by TL-chan 02.21.07 @ 6:25 pm

vicky i read that spoiler too but the one that i read that the invectids are destroyed and hunter has a choce:to stay in the inner world or go back to the outer world.

See, i got mine from this website called http://www.tvrage.com Search for ’spider riders’ and click on the english version, then on the right, with all the links, click on “Episode List” Apparently, this person got the summaries (see them by clicking on the episode name) from Teletoon. Tl chan and i think its the original plans for the series or something. Episode 47 (on the list) made me cry tears of joy.

Comment by Vicky 03.17.07 @ 5:33 pm

@Michele- That’s what they said, but the spoilers haven’t really been followed, so just about anything is possible

@Vicky- Sounded like a great episode. Kinda like my reaction to reading about 32, 41 and 46. But none have actually worked so far. -_-

Comment by TL-chan 03.17.07 @ 8:42 pm

46?? Tl chan, do you mean 45? 46 hasn’t aired yet! Well at least not now when i’m writting this!

Comment by Vicky 03.18.07 @ 8:24 am

@Vicky- Actually, I meant 46. I just ruled it out, given the current situation.
