Sooo… Ohisashiburi desu ne…?
Blue Friend: after days is typeset, though as it was typeset by one of my helpers I am going through the pages and correcting errors/inconsistencies. It’s close. It really is close. Only problem is that I am overwhelmed with real life this week. Things should be better next week. This weekend is SacAnime and I have been busy preparing. DoujinPress (My business) and one of my artists PurpleKecleon will be there in the artist alley. Come say hello~
Recently I marathoned Moretsu Pirates so that I could proofread a doujinshi called Leisurely Nights. My first impressions of the anime put it around 6.5/10.
I’ve since changed my mind. Moretsu Pirates is an amazing anime and is probably surely an all-time favorite now. I would probably give it a 8.5/10. I started rewatching it lately and find it super enjoyable now that I’m taking the series a little slower. I also have honed in on a certain pairing and I’m not likely to ever let it go…
Marika/Gruier are so cute together! I can’t believe how much I like the pairing! I went in to Moretsu knowing about Marika/Chiaki, but now that I’ve seen it all and can really ponder the characters and dynamics – Gruier seems like a much more fitting partner than Chiaki. Both Gruier and Chiaki have strong characters, but Gruier… She has more going for her than Chiaki, maybe? Ignoring the princess stuff, Gruier has this way of just wanting to be close to Marika that is so cute. All through the Ghost Ship arc and immediately after, there is scene after scene of Gruier making sure she’s close to Marika. It just makes me swoon. Swoooon~ They are in so many scenes together it makes me melt. And it helps that both Misa and Ririka approved of the Marika/Gruier setup in their own ways… How Misa called them prince and princess in episode 12 was precious. And right before that where Marika lectured Gruier about being alone in space and stuff… Almost killed me.
Realistically though, it’s clear that Gruier is at an age where she looks up to people. It’s also fair to say that Chiaki is a strong player in the game for Marika’s heart. I never thought I’d watch a yuri-heavy series and want so badly for the slightly less than blatant potential partner be paired with the main character… But I can’t resist with this one. Screw Gruier’s age. Gruier has shown and acted upon her interest in Marika a lot more than Chiaki and if it continues, Chiaki doesn’t stand a canon chance.
Haha, I like this series too much. I’m all worked up~
Stay tuned for some special features~
Also, I’m thinking of wiping the forums. Also, just plain out tossing them. This site needs so much work it makes me cry. Anyways, I am looking for opinions on our next step~ Join me in our channel and suggest our future: #yurikai @ irc.rizon.net
