    The play definitely didn’t disappoint With the main cast just ad-libbing while the narrator & supporting characters continued to follow the script even when it didn’t match what was actually happening. And their performances reflected not only their personalities, but their current mindsets, especially Uo & Kyo. Hana’s pointed question about whether Kyo is really ok with being alone till the day he dies suggests her psychic powers offer her some insight into what he’s facing. So Tohru can’t help interjecting herself into the conversation & making things sweet but awkward for both of them In the aftermath there were lots of neat little moments. Can hardly blame Kyo for being so freaked out by the prospect of Hana getting into a relationship with his father figure as she would fit the wicked stepmother role perfectly And as awkward as Kyo & Tohru get when they start thinking of each other romantically, when they just talk casually they relate perfectly. I think it would’ve been funny to see Hana’s little brother interact more with Hiro & maybe Kisa. Shigure appeared to be MIA, but as much snideness as he’s already provided, not a great loss. The conversation between Yuki & Kakeru concerning Machi’s dilemma was also insightful. While Yuki acknowledges that people need to learn to fight their own battles his personal experiences have taught him the devastating affect it can have on someone’s psyche when their pleas for help are repeatedly ignored & even a small kindness can help someone find the courage to get strong enough to stand on their own. No, it’s not good to meddle in other people’s business but it shouldn’t be used as an excuse for being dismissive of other people’s suffering either. To her credit, Machi never backed down & while her bluntness might’ve seemed insulting at first, it shows she sees Yuki as a person with his own flaws and is trying to work out his own psychological/emotional baggage which is essential for developing any sort of meaningful relationship. I honestly wish that this was the season’s final episode so I could be confident we go into the break on a hopeful note. Even though next week’s title sounds like it will probably be a positive one, I still can’t shake the feeling of dread that the final one will drop a bombshell & we’ll have to wait until next year for the aftermath. The solution of course would be for me to stop now, but doubt I have the willpower

    Hey there! I'm know as Swan songs, but I go by many names such as: Reaper, Forsaken, & faceless, but I honestly don't care what you call me. I've longed to join this forums for a good while, but like usual I got distracted by manga, video games, anime; as a result I've never gotten times to really set-up an account on the forums. I've spent a good while spectating the forums from the shadows ( whenever I actually have free time) & when I mean the shadows, I mean watching on a computer from a dimly lit room in an air conditioned room. Anyways, It's good to be apart of a nice community albeit I'm the nicest of people I still tend to get very aggressive during certain topics, but that rarely happens. I really need to stop getting off track! I hope I can get along with you guys. Your local crackhead - Swan Songs

    Hello, I've been a fan of Anime since the 90s, I grew up watching anime dubbed in Arabic like Grendizer, Mazinger Z and Captain Tsubasa. I then got to watch anime like Lupin III, Cobra, Cat's Eye and City Hunter on several European channels when Egypt went through the satellite dish boom and now thanks to internet the world of Anime is open.

    Yes, I cried. More than once. Even though my own life experiences couldn’t be more different than Yuki’s, the feelings & truths this week really went into some personal territory for me. To be forgotten , to feel unneeded. That your life didn’t matter. At the risk of TMI, I’ll just say that Alzheimer's is a terrible disease & leave it at that. Thank god there were lighter moments as well. Seeing the younger versions of Kyo, Hatsuhara, Momiji & Kagura interact, some things never change Though the funniest was seeing Tohru’s mom go from hysterical parent to hell-to-pay gang leader Also the history behind the baseball cap. I always felt that it seemed out of character that Yuki gave it to Tohru, so no surprise that it actually belonged to Kyo. Funny thing, I waited till morning to watch so it wouldn’t interfere with trying to go to sleep. But now I have to try to put on my public face & go to work. Smartest thing would be to wait until the weekend before watching this show, but don’t know if I can wait that long

    Guys..do animes make you feel a certain kind of way too?...after finishing a good anime...I'm left with a big void in my heart..I just get lost in thought...I know I could never be as good as one of those anime characters..but just wanting to be feels good.. the melancholy is enjoyable..imagining yourself as one of the characters feels good..needless to say it helps me escape reality..it fills my head with unrealistic expectations which isn't healthy but it feels good..like a drug..anime girls are like a remedy to sadness..how does it make you people feel?

    So, unashamedly I had to take a few days to calm down before giving my thoughts on this episode because the whole scene where Akito viciously attacked Yuki....let's just say that if this had happened in real life & I were there, I would have tackled her to the ground & pummeled the ever living snot out of her. I just, I'm almost at a loss for words at how disgusted I am over Akito's behavior. Will Akito have a traumatic backstory as well? You better believe it. Does that justify any of her actions or will lead to me feeling differently about her once her trauma is revealed? Not...a...bit! Why? Because of her conscious awareness of the grief & pain that she is causing to others. She knows full well what she's doing & CHOOSES to behave nastily & viciously towards others, therefore effectively depriving others of their peace. UGH. I'm so ready for there to be some type of emotional, loving moment between Tohru & Kyo that I almost can't stand it. I just want to see them be free & truly happy with one another. And don't think I haven't noticed Kyo's efforts to be more lighthearted around her. So adorable. And I've said this before & I'll say it again, Machi & Yuki is a fantastic match. There is this really cool yin/yang energy between them that is so very well done. And the fact that Yuki is building a strong friendship with her brother is even better because I'm sure he has been adversely affected by their upbringing, so they will all help each other heal. I may wait & watch the finale on the weekend after it is released because I know that it is just going to leave me shattered beyond all comprehension & I simply can't try to get a good night's rest after something like that so if you don't hear from me until next Friday at least you know why.

    So much packed into a single episode as we approach the season finale. Have to say Machi’s approach to housekeeping is disturbingly familiar That call from her mother was so cringey. Ostensibly to see how she’s doing when it’s clear she has no interest in anything she might say & spends the whole time criticizing her. Even though her school status is the opposite of Yuki’s (she’s ignored while he is the center of attention) she immediately recognizes the same loneliness inside him. And funny how her first step in coming out of her shell is to go full tsundere when Yuki notices she turned the leaf he gave her into a bookmark. I doubt his feelings towards her are romantic at this stage, but he does seem to recognize her as a kindred spirit & has become very interested in her wellbeing & wanting to learn more about her. It’s really sweet that Tohru is spending New Years holiday at Kyo & Shisho’s home and is a good opportunity for their relationship to progress. Unfortunately I still feel he’s hiding something from her about her mom. In retrospect it is possible that his emotional turmoil & apology at the end of that one episode last season was just an expression of shared grief since his mother died as well. But I still believe there is a more direct connection since the story has already established that Tohru, Kyo & Yuki were already connected by fate before she moved in with them. The Soma’s New Years party started out surprisingly upbeat (what I wouldn’t give to see that interpretive dance Momiji & Hatori apparently did But things quickly turn dark with Akito becoming violent when she realizes how much her hold over Yuki has eroded. I don’t even want to think how she would react if she found out about the dvd Tohru & Momiji gave her Boytoy #2 (Kureno). Which brings us to the inescapable confrontation between her & Tohru once she realizes just how much control she’s lost over the zodiac members as a result of Tohru’s “meddling”. Her instinctive response is to become violent & after what she did to Rin, yes I do believe she is capable of trying to kill someone. And I’m afraid she’ll make sure no one else is around to interfere when the time comes. I will say though that in addition to her god complex that flashback she had before lashing out at Yuki seemed to indicate she’s also got sone deep rooted abandonment issues. Though I hope they put all this on hold till next season or I might not survive the hiatus

    Love how Yuki’s budding relationship with Machi demonstrates how a broken person who is still healing can still help another broken person begin the process of healing. I have more to say, but will have to wait till later as this is all I have time for right now.

    First , i would like to say that Yuki and Machi was really cute together , im starting to ship them more and more . Yuki had changed very much from the beginning of the show , and i find that really great. Something I just CAN NOT not talk about is Akito ! HOW could Akito do this , after Yuki just told him that he forgives her. Though i do realize that Akito's expression changed for that one second when she said " whats that in your eyes " Theres no way that she wouldn't do anything after hearing that . In this episode , in the end , Momiji gave a DVD of Cinderella-ish play to Kureno saying it was a present from Tohru , I think she's so sweet , doing this for her Uotani and Kureno , she really thinks of others and is way too kind .

    Thank you! I hope so too. It's honestly my first time being on any forums such as this site and I'm kinda lost on what I can do or talk about but I guess that's part of the discovery process. Hope to see you around sometime in one of these discussion pages.

    I'm in the process of repurposing one of my clubs- Gaming Hub- into a totally different type of club. At the time it was made, I believe the gaming forum was out of commission. However, since its return, the club has become obsolete. Since I'm maxed out on slots, one of them needs to be sacrificed to make room, and it made more sense to reform GH. So please don't be alarmed if you are removed, I'll open it back up again when I'm ready to introduce my newest little corner to AF, and anyone will be welcome to the new one.

    Hey..I'm new to AF, I hope I can find people to talk with about anime...I've only started watching anime a few months ago...but I'd say I've watched enough where I really wanna talk to people about it..we needn't necessarily stick to the topic...Oregairu's just been on my mind lately so I thought I'd put that in the topic..I just wanna talk about anime..and hopefully also about the ones I've watched...I hope I don't annoy and creep people out by talking too much.. Sooo...Oregairu's nearing its end...with only a couple of episodes left..It's got me wondering about Yui...The first three episodes or so made me feel as if 8man's gonna end up with Yui...then they showed his inclination towards Yukino and you accepting the fact that she's not gonna get 8man...now with this whole wish thing in play....and with 8man saying how he wishes he could just fulfill all of yui's wishes one by one..its got me wondering if there's hope for yui fter all...I know in the manga he ends up with Yukino...I won't mind 8man ending up with any of the girls..It's just hard for me to see yui's heart break..

    This week's episode had a balance of everything I think. The play was hilarious as I expected it to be & also was brimming with emotions as I expected as well. I love how they spun the relationship between Cinderella & her step sister. I would really like to see Sake & Shiso get together & Momiji is such a little sweetheart for offering to deliver the DVD of the ply to Kureno. And my goodness, oh, little Kisa-chan's feelings are hurt because she thinks Hiro likes Rin. The whole Kisa & Hiro thing is just too cute because of how young they are. So adorable. I've got about 5 boxes of Kleenex on standby for when Tohru & Kyo do finally express how they feel for one another. Man, the tension & love between them is almost suffocating. And Yuki & Machi are going to make a great match, I think. I'm looking forward to seeing exactly what it is that brings those two together & how they establish a romantic relationship.

    In a way, can’t fully blame her for being crazed & resentful if she’s been imprisoned for centuries to power Amaterasu unlike the Woman in Black who made the choice willingly. I’m anticipating next weeks ep as it looks to maybe give some insight into Licht & Joker’s characters. While it seems they’re assisting the good guys for now, they’re secrecy suggests that their ultimate motives might make them enemies. The OP seems to suggest a connection of some sort between Joker & Burns (Company 1’s chief) but will have to wait to see.

    On the plus, my mom has gotten into anime and it's been amusing giving her recommendations. She recently finished Death Note and talked to me for almost an hour about it. Now she's watching Haikyuu!! and thinks it's the funniest show ever. She even got a bit of nostalgia over her school years and just generally when she was younger. Which was unexpected but Haikyuu!! tends to work like that anyway.

    Today we pay respects to director, animator, and screenwriter Satoshi Kon, who passed away from pancreatic cancer on this day 10 years ago. Paranoia Agent, which recently aired on Toonami, was the only TV series he directed before he passed.

    There are a few 'older' members around who are also a joy to interact with, so no need to feel strange, you aren't alone at all and are quite welcome in AF! We're a big basket of variety if anything. I can totally relate to the rp itch. I heavily frequented some rp communities myself 10-15 years ago, and while I don't have time for them anymore between my career and family, they remain some fond memories of very formative years. I learned many a lesson in not only how to post six-paragraph replies, but about respecting the person on the other side of the screen and other fun friendship things that would make Twilight Sparkle proud. You can of course link to it in your profile (I see you have,) and in your signature as well. I'll let you in a little secret, too; if you stick around the forums and get to know the community, you'll unlock a special hidden forum where you can post links. In any case, welcome! I'm glad you decided to stick around and I hope you'll feel comfortable here.

    Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here We have somethings in common. Like yourself, I’m a not quite a boomer who got his first taste of anime as a pre-teen watching Star Blazers. Didn’t know it was “anime”, but clearly wasn’t Disney or Hanna Barbera The next one to really get my attention was probably Robotech. Then spent far too much time & money at Suncoast during the 90’s & early 2000s. Sort of fell out of the loop when streaming took over as the preferred medium, but came back in recent years. Currently watching many series from various genres. Only been a part online communities/forums for about 10 years. Never really felt at ease in the larger/better known ones. Was lucky enough to find a smaller one with some people I connected with, but not much activity anymore. Found this place almost 2 years ago and am very happy here.
