At least Yuu and Miki’s date is going better than Satoshi and Meiko’s. Yuu won a Kappa stuffed animal for Miki in an earlier episode, and has won even more stuffed Kappas for her! As a reward, he gets to lug them all around for her while she shops. What a fun date he’s having!
Besides being class president, Satoshi does have another positive trait. He accepts Meiko as she is, and doesn’t ask her for forced smiles. Although he is persistent to the point of being almost annoying, I feel bad knowing her heart still belong to Na-chan. I think Satoshi knows.
There is a scandal at school and everyone is talking about Meiko and Na-chan. Personally, I liked them together. Don’t judge me!
Now that it’s out, teachers and students alike are gossiping about their relationship. Meiko has returned to school, and everyone is whispering about her. But never fear, she has some of the best friends a gal could ask for. They don’t judge her, they’re supportive, positive, and they stand up for her!
The look that says, “I know you’re not talking about my girl Meiko!”
And if you were, we will shun you! You are dead to us.
Speaking of friends, I guess it’s okay to say things like this, if it’s within the friend circle and directly to someone’s face?
Do not do this. Doing this is a bad idea. You’ll probably get a response like below, or worse. Ginta, come on really. That is not how you woo a lady.
But it’s all good. Miki is resilient and nothing can keep her down.
What a dramatic and interesting ride Marmalade Boy has been so far!
Some of it is frustrating, (like why are we even bothering with Ginta, we know Yuu is the one for Miki), but incrementally our lead character is realizing her true feelings. It’s difficult to stop watching after one episode! I’m on the edge of my seat!
Well! Looks like the parents are going on vacation and leaving the kids home alone for a few days. What tantalizing way will they spend time together? Oh, looks like…grocery shopping.
See that? Yuu’s sweating. He can already hear that register ca-ching! Even though that credit card the parents left them was supposed to be for emergencies. I mean, they have to eat right? And apparently this poor girl has never had sour cream potato chips!
Sounds about right.
With all these groceries, what a scrumptious feast these kids will enjoy! Miki kept saying how she was going to make a great meal. I guess she forgot she takes after her mother.
Thankfully, Yuu can cook. A man after my own heart. And polite!
Yes honey please make me a delicious dish while I sit here and watch my anime. Does this guy not exist in real life?!
Did we actually make it without any awkward situations? Almost.
Cool your jets lady! No, it’s not. Yuu went to grab a scary movie. But we should’ve seen that coming. He was hoping you’d get scared. Oldest trick in the book.
But now it’s time to shower and get ready for bed.
PSA: If you see a closed bathroom door, always knock first! And lock the door when you’re in the bathroom!
Jokes aside, Yuu was a gentlemen. Even when Miki stayed way too long in the water, overheated, passed out in the bathroom, and he had to carry her to her room.
I started watching Marmalade Boy. This being a shoujo anime, it’s full of fun and romance (and some drama). The premise is of course, absurd.
Only a few episodes in, and we already get a kiss! Excellent, perhaps this relationships will progress nicely (if others don’t interfere!)
Okay their parents haven’t remarried yet, so that isn’t her step-brother, in case anyone is giving me the side eye. But yes, they are living in the same house. And people from their past have made declarations of their love, so that’s causing some drama.
I just finished watching Season 1 of Kaleido Star. Fool aside, it is a very wholesome series, and it has great themes like friendship, family, hard work, perseverance, and faith in yourself.
I gave it a 7 rating on My Anime List. I liked it, but the anime series that I truly love, the ones that are my absolute favorites, are the ones where I feel like I absolutely MUST watch the next episode. Or I feel a special connection to a character. I did not feel that way with Kaleido Star, so I probably won’t watch Season 2 (but if I do watch it I’ll share my thoughts).
It was neat watching their performances on Kaleido Star. The Legendary Great Maneuver , which defies the laws of physics, was enjoyable. And the theme song “Take It, Shake It” by Sugar was catchy. During a climatic scene, Yuri saves Sora’s life, but I don’t recall her ever thanking him. And I was hoping to get a love confession from Ken! It was a calming series, and full of goodness. It just didn’t capture my full attention.
But here are some scenes from Fool babysitting a seal for your LOLs!
And of course, the part when they had to get a part time job, made me chuckle!
If you watched the series please let me know your thoughts!
