Is this a coincidence, deja vu or…?

 What do these 3 have in common? A lot more than you think πŸ˜‰

First of all, I hate coincidence. Second of all, irony always likes to bite me in the grass. Third…. I know I did not see this coming, but it sure is (creepy?) hilarious. Let’s look into it.


First off a little rundown of what RE: the controversy is. RE: the controversy is my reply to controversy regarding a topic that springs up in a series, whether by me or by what others’ interpretation of a particular scene in an Anime. I then poke fun at it in the form of these (usually) 4koma-like set of screenshots subtitled by my over-the-top zany imagination. The result varies per individual (usually in the form of laughs)

So, the biggest hit of my Spring 2011 4koma joke subs (or trollsubs, as a fellow Animesuki member put it), was Dog Days, specifically this one that pokes fun at the relationship between Millimeter and the Hero. For Summer 2011, I started things with this one, the most popular one that season, again poking fun at the relationship between the lead male and (arguably *cough*) the lead female of the series Ro-Kyu-Bu. And then of course for Fall 2011 there is the recent Guilty Crown one, which proves to be my biggest hit in terms of total enjoyment by readers at 3 different websites I posted it. Again, I poked fun at the lead male and lead female’s relationship. Now what makes all this so hilarious? You might have figured it out by now, but here we go:

1. All 3 series feature a lead female with Pink Hair.
2. Two of the girls are great singers, while the 3rd girl is a great ball handler….with a niiice voice πŸ™‚
3. All 3 girls are deeply involved with the lead male in question.
4. All 3 girls are…. not the best in breast size in their respective series.(I didn’t call them flat!!)
5. All 3 girls have some form of ribbon hair accessory tied onto their heads.
6. All 3 girls were “hurt” by the male protagonists in my joke subs.
7. For the male characters, all 3 have hair that begins with a b (1 blonde, 2 browns)
8. All 3 of the lead males are referred to with names beginning with the letter “S”, with Sink, Subaru and Shu (technically, Dog Days’ “Sink” is officially called “Cinque”, but pronounciation-wise it’s “si-” instead of “ke-“, and no one I’ve seen online referred to him as Cinque, and fansubbers stubbornly stuck with their “Shinku” lol)
9. Finally, I gave Bad Endings to all 3 male protagonists. NO SURVIVORS LOL.

I swear I did not plan all of this, heck I originally did not plan to watch Guilty Crown if it weren’t for a certain mod’s posting of the Nyantype/Megami posters (before the Fall 2011 began, the poster with Ponytail and catgirl in bodysuits). Now how’s that for a deja vu filled coincidental irony? πŸ˜„

Now I feel like looking up all of next season’s anime and see which one of my watchlist involves a pink haired girl. I’ve hurt them enough πŸ˜„

Kamisama Dolls Episode 11 preview

Ah, Mahiru mounts Hibino. You know, the past few days I found myself getting about 5, maybe 6 hours of sleep out of 24 hours in a day. In my not-so-awake state of mind, I actually saw Hibino as a naked girl wrapped in only a valentine gift wrapped ribbon…. I’m not losing my mind, am I? Tell me someone else saw it that way too…. tell me…

Mayo Chiki! episode 11 preview

Well, Starchild’s preview has not gone up at the time of this post, but TBS’ did. According to them, a new term begins, and it looks like Subaru X Jirou moments are now awkward. I thought awkward moments only happened if the 2 fell in love with each other…

If you’re wondering about Mayo Chiki’s first DVD release, here’s what it has:
-NC OP/ED
-Some kind of commentary withΒ Jiro Sakamachi (CV: Satoshi Hino), Subaru Konoe (CV: Yuka Iguchi)
Full-color booklet, 16 Pages, maybe it’s like that little artbook that came with Infinite Stratos
-The DVD Jacket illustrated by Kosuke Kawamura

Aw, no Specials? No “Bath time with Kanade”? Not even some “Training with Kureha”? I would love to watch Kureha sleeping….lol.

Ro-Kyu-Bu character song samples

Ah, Ro-Kyu-Bu. What many call a loli anime, and with this kind of cast, the character CD’s ought to be something. Thanks to Animesuki member Konakaga, I was convinced to give the samples a listen. I gotta say I loved every one of them. I had questioned myself how do they make different versions of the OP, as my first prerogative is always “Probably like Strike Witches’ Bookmark Song”, which was sung the same way by the different voice actresses for that series. But I was surprised the different Ro-Kyu-Bu OP versions were very much different than each other, and you’ve got different song styles too, Tomoka’s up-tempo version, Maho’s catchy jazz style, Airi’s was relaxing in a soft style, and more. I think out of all the individual character songs, Hina’s made me melt so fast, I hadn’t realized I had that sample blaring for almost an hour ON LOOP.

Give them a listen here, and don’t forget their sales dates if you’ve melted enough to buy them: Tomoka, Maho and Saki are available now, Hina’s arrives in 2 days, and Airi goes gold on the 21st.

RE: the controversy, Ro-Kyu-Bu’s ep 04 "I’ll do anything!"

So that part in ep 04, when Tomoka told Subaru she’ll do anything, I think this is what happened afterwards:

Why does she have to learn from him…

I would rather learn from Miho-neechan anytime πŸ˜€

*runs*

RE: the controversy, Ro-Kyu-Bu! Bad Ending

And he was never heard from again.

And, just because:
