Strawberry Panic! Ep13

[Posted @ 11:44 AM]
I’ve been receiving lots of spoilers from those who watched the RAW and I assume everyone knows that Strawberry Panic! is going on a faster pace as relationships were put to the test. First with Nagisa and Shizuma from St Miator, now Hikari and Yaya from St Spica, let Strawberry Panic! Ep13 begin!

Quick! Fake Smiles!=)Nice View, Hikari.

It’s the end of the Summer Vacation soon, Hikari began crossing off the days to the start of the Second Semester because Amane and her had made a promise to meet up after the Summer Vacation. Unlike all uh many other students, Hikari’s actually looking forward to the end of Summer Vacation and even said if she had strange magical powers, she would wish for the time to pass faster so that the end would arrive soon. [Hikari used the example of the sand in the hourglass to represent time flowing down faster, quite interesting.] Scene changed to start of Second Semester in St Spica, the Evil Lesbians™ [Kaname and Momomi] strikes back as they chatted about their Student Council President, Shion still bent on having Amane to enter the Etoile Battle. Just then, two fangirls walked past, squealing, ‘Kyaah~ It’s Kenjou-sama and Sayashiki-sama~ so beautiful~’, Kaname and Momomi smiled and waved back like ‘Fake Idols’ XD. Momomi continued that if Amane were to join the Etoile Battle … Kaname cut in and said, well, whatever, they’ll just have to keep a watch on Amane’s movements. A brief moment of the St Miator side as Nagisa’s at the music room where Shizuma and her placed the piano together for the first time. Nagisa looked pretty gloomy and was probably thinking about Shizuma as she played a single tune on the piano, while Tamao’s outside the door looking sad and listening.

At the St Spica side, Amane and Hikari made a date with each other on Sunday and this was overheard by Kaname who of course had baddddd intentions. Later that night, Yaya suggested to Hikari to have a movie date with Amane because when watching they could be close to each other and could chat about the movie later, a great choice for a first timer. Blushing, Hikari replied that Amane-senpai won’t think of it as a date between them. Yaya went over, hugged Hikari and asked what she thought of it then? Hikari didn’t reply, instead she asked Yaya what dress should she wear. Yaya answered that Hikari would look cute in any dress. Hikari told Yaya to stop fooling around and help her seriously because she wants Amane to think so too. Yaya gave a bitter smile at the thought of it. [Poor Yaya, I reckon she truly wasn’t lying when she said that Hikari would look cute in any dress haha] Evil Lesbians™, Kaname and Momomi were plotting some evil once again to disrupt Amane and Hikari’s date and once their relationship sours, no one will stand in their way to glory fufufu.

Just For Yaya Lovers.Koneko-Chan~Kaname Strikes Back Two.

On Sunday, in Hikari and Yaya’s room, Hikari’s having troubles buttoning the buttons of the back of her dress while Yaya slyly looked on lol until Hikari asked for help. Yaya commented that the dress fit Hikari well, Hikari wondered if Amane would think so, Yaya replied, of course she would. After buttoning up the dress, Hikari paused for a moment, thinking hard then looking up to Yaya that it’ll be alright since Yaya chose the dress for her right? Yaya nodded. Seems like Hikari took up Yaya’s suggestion to go for a movie date and they’re meeting at the train station to the city. Scene changed to Amane walking out of the Ichigo-sha, Kaname and Momomi put their evil plan into action. Back in the room, it’s late, Hikari put on her hat and left the room happily, leaving Yaya smiling her off but faded when the door closed. Walking along the hallway, Momomi stopped Hikari and asked if she could have a moment with her. Hikari looked defensive and didn’t reply, Momomi said she won’t waste much time, Hikari replied what does she want. Momomi responded that it’s regarding Kaname … suddenly Kaname appeared from nowhere and abducted Hikari, in the struggle, one of Hikari’s dress button dropped. Momomi proceed to target two, Amane. In the room, Yaya noticed that Hikari had forgotten her handkerchief and left the room to chase after her. Meanwhile, Hikari’s been pushed up against the door by Kaname in one of the dorm rooms. Hikari and Kaname heard Yaya’s calling voice in the distance, Kaname hushed Hikari whose mouth was covered and told her she had something to tell her. Yaya ran out of the Ichigo-sha and thought Hikari already left and even commented, ‘Whoa, really fast.’ LOL!

On the other side, Momomi pretended to run into Amane and told her she had something to tell her. Back to Ichigo-sha, Kaname’s in her metaphor spree again as she told Hikari … for example Greenhouse Effect/Global Warming, then she began explaining about how Global Warming is caused by Carbon Dioxide and that it’s general knowledge right? Then she continued that however, there’s no concrete proof that Global Warming is indeed caused by Carbon Dioxide [REALLY?!] but just an assumption. Kaname then chuckled and said she can’t express herself very well but her meaning behind those lines was not to blindly believe general knowledge. Looking menacingly at Hikari, she added, yes the general knowledge in your brain thinking ‘Kaname’s dangerous.’ Kaname added, ‘But she’s beautiful and dangerous. Oh so beautiful.’ LOL Pulling Hikari nearer, Kaname told Hikari not to believe that general knowledge in her mind, tipping Hikari’s chin up, Kaname told her to look and think proper because she’s such a wonderful and beautiful person … so is she dangerous? Hikari looked stunned for a moment but she tried to struggle out of Kaname’s grasp. Kaname snaked her right hand into Hikari’s dress, remember the button on the back of the dress was torn out? Yeah, she snaked it in from there, hence stopping Hikari’s struggles. [Hikari knew that if she struggled even more, Kaname must just do it right there and then haha, a smart or dumb move, you make the decision. It’s like a robber had a knife on his hand and asked you ‘Money or life?’, you struggle, you’ll get killed, if you let the robber have his/her way, you might live but you lose the money or get killed too. A 100% killed chance or maybe 20% live chance?]

Awww~.Hikari.A Little Step, Holding Hands.

Scene changed back to Momomi telling Amane straight in the face to drop the idea of competing for the Etoile post. Amane replied that she never thought of joining at the first place. Momomi said that that’s what Amane thinks but the people around her doesn’t. Momomi continued that everyone looking forward to Amane competing for the Etoile post and that’s pretty confirmed. Amane looked stunned and asked why. Momomi didn’t reply and merely said, Konohana [Hikari] is a good girl, think about it, although you might not think so, it doesn’t mean others think your way and your actions might burden, no, might hurt people around you because of you. Momomi added that those who wanted the Etoile post will see Amane as obstacle so she better handle things cautiously, that her responsibility of being St Spica’s star idol. Amane looked pretty shocked at that realization. Back in the dorm, Hikari began struggling out of Kaname’s grasp, Kaname replied, ‘I won’t let you go. That is because the moon is totally beautiful.’ Hikari had a shocked expression on when Kaname said that. Kaname continued that Natsume Souseki is a genius as he translated certain sentence as, ‘I Love You’ and pushed Hikari on the bed. Hikari was more terrified than happy when she heard Kaname’s confession lol. Meanwhile, after Amane heard what Momomi said, she turned to leave. Momomi told Amane that Hikari wouldn’t be coming because she know it. [Knowing that being with Amane will cause her trouble] Amane got angry and walked off hastily. Yaya walked back to her dorm room, she noticed Hikari’s dress button on the floor and heard Hikari’s struggling voice coming from a room.

In the room, Kaname pinned Hikari down on the bed while Hikari began to struggle helplessly. Kaname told Hikari to be hers, forget Amane and leaned down to kiss her. At that moment, Yaya slammed open the door, Kaname stopped her actions, Hikari pushed Kaname away and ran to Yaya’s side. [=O] Yaya picked up Hikari’s hat and told her to leave to go meet Amane, Hikari thanked Yaya and left. Yaya confronted Kaname and her evil intention, Kaname denied, Yaya accused her of lying and told her not to do it again. Kaname replied that she only fell in love with Hikari and asked if Yaya had any rights to hinder her love? ‘Heh, you can never have the rights’, Kaname taunted, ‘The way to stop love, is only love.’ Yaya seemed troubled by what Kaname said and left while Kaname’s telling her to knock the door before entering lol. Kaname smirked, seemed like her plan worked in stirring Yaya’s heart. Amane’s waiting at the train station, the train arrived but Hikari’s nowhere to be seen. Hikari ran to the train station, when she got there, the train had already left and noone’s at the station. Dejected, Hikari turned and saw Amane sitting on the bench behind her. They sat another train that’s going opposite where they were going. Along the way, Hikari tried to strike up a conversation with Amane but Amane just gave an uncommitted grunt, Hikari stopped trying as she thinks Amane’s angry with her. They arrived at the beach, Amane said she liked this place because it’s peaceful and they walked along beach.

Awww~~~Hikari ...Hush~

While walking among the sands, Hikari picked up a pink seashell [KANNAZUKI NO MIKO!!!!]. and pink seashells suddenly became the latest symbol of yuri. In the Ichigo-sha, Yaya’s staring at Hikari’s dress button and wondered if Hikari met up with Amane. With an anguished expression, Yaya thought about what Kaname said before, ‘The way to stop love, is only love.’ Meanwhile, Amane and Hikari were caught in a heavy rain and they seek refugee in a cave. While waiting in the cave, Hikari apologized and said that Amane’s angry with her for being late and for not being able to catch the movie. Amane smiled and shook her head saying that it’s not that. Looking out of the opening of the cave, Amane didn’t give the reason why, only assured Hikari that that was not the reason. A while later, the rain stopped, it was nearly dusk, Amane and Hikari walked back, Amane noticed one of Hikari’s dress button missing and asked her what happened. Hikari replied it’s nothing, Amane assumed it to be Kaname and Momomi’s doing and pressed Hikari to tell her. Hikari said it’s alright as Yaya saved her. Amane blamed herself for causing trouble for Hikari. Hikari protested and said that it’s not Amane’s fault and that it’s alright because as along as she could be with Amane … Amane placed her hands on Hikari’s shoulders and told her that she felt that way too about Hikari. [Aww~] A barrier was taken off between them as they held hands on the way home. They even held hands when waiting for the train lol, Amane blushed when she saw the smiling Hikari XD. [Kawaii~] On the train, Amane told Hikari that she don’t wish to cause any more trouble for Hikari but she wanted to see Hikari again. Hikari replied that she too. Hikari fell asleep against Amane’s shoulders and Amane gently brushed the hair on Hikari’s forehead smiling at the scene.

In Ichigo-sha, it was almost night time, Yaya asked if she did the right thing by letting Hikari go with Amane. Meanwhile, Kaname and Momomi were having fun in their bathtub lol, Kaname’s pissed that her plan failed because of Yaya. Kaname said that if she get serious … Momomi hushed Kaname up and said, I know. [Double meaning LOL!] Yaya’s practicing to her own reflection how to welcome Hikari back and return the button to her lol. The door opened, Hikari rushed in, thanked and hugged Yaya. Hikari happily told Yaya that Amane said that she would want to see her again. Putting on a really forced and brave front, Yaya replied, I see, that’s great and even smiled! [... heart ... bleeding ... seeping ...] Yaya tried to return the dress button to Hikari while Hikari took out the pink seashell she picked at the beach as a present for Yaya. Yaya looked stunned and said, it’s for my sake? Hikari nodded. Yaya placed her hands around Hikari’s shoulders and the damn ‘might miss or kiss scene is coming’ background music played … again lol. Hikari looked puzzled and asked her what’s the matter. Yaya’s face was unreadable, like she just made a big decision, very adult-like, mature ... or she’s just staring at Hikari’s lips? Yaya leaned in and kissed Hikari. Hikari was shocked beyond words, as her eyes were wide opened and there were tears in her eyes. Hikari’s hand dropped the pink seashell in the handkerchief and the scene faded off after showing the pink seashell on the floor and Hikari’s raised’s feet. [?!] - END -

Hikari, I'm Going To ...KISS YOU!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Holy crap. HOLY CRAP. What the hell just happened?! That was unexpected ... ok, that was my reaction two days ago. Anyways, it was supposed to be an Amane x Hikari happy moment but it turned out to be more Hikari x Yaya action moment though. As you can see, Hikari’s really insecure about how Amane would think of her and really dependent on Yaya’s suggestions on her dressing and stuff. But as Yaya said, ‘Any dress would look cute on you, Hikari.’, I reckoned Amane would agree too lol. Hikari’s a pretty kid but she’s not confident enough. I really admire Yaya’s self control and putting her love’s happiness in front of her own happiness as she quietly encouraged Hikari to go for it. I love the scene where Yaya just lusted stared at Hikari trying to button her dress lol. After Hikari left happily, Yaya’s face just fell straight down, reminded me of Chikane from Kannazuki no Miko. Himeko left the house, Chikane’s face became desperate and she stretched her hands as if she wanted to pull Himeko back. When Himeko turned back, Chikane’s already in the house, struggling with her own feelings. Ahhhh, so heart wrenching! The Kaname attempt to rape Hikari for the second time scene was rather hm amusing, dunno why, I just felt that way haha, with the metaphors, ‘I Love You’ and all but it’s quite entertaining. What Momomi told Amane at the same time seemed rather true too, Amane really should protect her princess from jealous common people =X. LoL.

Yaya to the rescue scene was hm not as princely as Amane’s but I couldn’t help but laugh at the background music when Yaya appeared at the door! LOL! SO FUNNY! Like some cliché Chinese martial arts show where the main actor arrived at the scene LOL really. I felt a little sorry for Hikari when she tried to talk to Amane during the train ride, dense Amane didn’t realize anything at all, tsk, the flaw of Amane. Sweet scene as they told each other that it’s enough that they see each other and the holding hands scene~ LoL kawaii~ Amane showed her ‘selfish’ side as she confessed to Hikari that she wanted to see Hikari again even though she knew she would trouble Hikari. The problem with them is that they were too ‘polite’ with each other, there’s a distance between them, especially when Amane’s so dense, doesn’t explain herself but rather by action and is way shy. Hikari, too self-conscious, blames herself more than praise herself, way shy. Sigh, what will happen to them?

Kaname x Momomi action? Hell yeah! The bathtub scene pretty much summed up their very intimate relationship, such a subtle scene yet so hot lol, leaves a lot to your imagination. Why Yaya kissed Hikari? I presume it’s because of what Kaname said, ‘The way to stop love, is only love.’ Yaya began to entertain thoughts of stopping Hikari’s love for Amane with her love probably? As she was in a rather waving mind set, Hikari came back, hugged her and gave her a present, a pink seashell, the latest trend of the symbol of yuri love!!! touched, Yaya decided to show Hikari how much she loves her. It’s show time. Ohh yeah, why was Hikari on her toes?! Is she meeting up to kiss Yaya? Or was it because Yaya had gripped Hikari’s shoulders that she’s on her tip toes? I would prefer to believe the latter though or please tell me the producers are just toying with us. A little trend, first couple victims, Shizuma x Nagisa suffered 50% damages and injuries, second couple victims, Hikari x Yaya suffered 80% damages and injuries from the looks of Ep14 lol. Will they continue to be friends or? Like what Tamao said in the preview, what’s the difference between love and friendship?

Overall, Yaya pwned this episode. Haha.

My brain's feeling really crampy this week, I've been a brainless, worthless fool since start of March ... now I'm cooped up with stupid driving theory lessons. It's been a while since I read ... ok besides, manga, newspapers and magazines. Maybe I should rephrase that ... it's been a while since I studied LOL. Besides, it's end of the month, my 'brain bandwidth' overexceeded, so must wait for next month for it to restart XD.

'おおきに', [Ookini] means 'Thank You' in Kyoto-Ben. Shizuru-sama fans should pretty much know about this =).

'ジパング', [Zipangu], Zipang, is actually a name of a country in the Mai Otome world. For your information, Tokiha Mai, Coral Number 1, Natsuki's rival and friend is from Zipang.

Strawberry Panic! Ep13 Screenshot Spoilers

[Posted @ 8:05 PM]
!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SPOILER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't say I didn't warn YOU!

Figured I put this space, but sometimes I think, what's the use, you're still scrolling down anyways lol.

Thanks to Ran, I practically ran to my lappy when I came home and went to the Japanese Strawberry Panic! Offical Blog site. The 3 screenshots below are taken from Mori's Ichigo Gari =O.

Click on the pictures and out pops a window with a bigger, clearer dimension.

Spoiler 1. Spoiler 2. Spoiler 3.

My own assumption from the screenshots;
Amane and Hikari goes out on a date while jealous and angsty Yaya stays home and wait. The relationship between Amane and Hikari grew deeper. Hikari goes back, overjoyed and began blabbling about her date with Amane. Jealous Yaya couldn't stand it no more and kissed Hikari. - END - Ok, let's see how accurate my assumption is lol.

Preview;
After Yaya kissed Hikari in Ep13, it brings us to the little estranged situation between Hikari and Yaya in Ep14, 'More Than Best Friends', OHHH CAN'T WAIT!!! XD. Will Yaya finally pour all her feelings out in Ep14? How will Hikari reply?

If you can read Japanese, here's a brief summary of Ep14 taken from here.

'ある事件がきっかけで、光莉と夜々(やや)が疎遠になってしまった。渚砂は2人を仲直りさせたいと思うが、どうしていいのかわからない。そんなとき渚砂は、ふと自分と玉青の関係を振り返り「光莉と夜々をつなぐ大事なものがあれば、仲直りできるのでは?」と考えるのだが... ...。'

I tried to translate it on an online tranlator, it gave me ... ;

'A certain incident with opportunity, light with at nights (a little) became estranged. The beach sand we would like to be reconciled 2, but you do not know whether why it is good. If such a time the beach sand suddenly by your look back at the relationship of ball blue and "light with are important ones which at nights are connected, with can be reconciled? "With you think, but .......'

LOL!!!

Anyways, while surfing around for Strawberry Panic! stuff, I chanced upon a Strawberry Panic! Character quiz, curious, I took it ... guess who I turn out to be?! LoL.

Which Strawberry Panic! Character Are You Most Like?

You are Otori Amane! You race horses for St. Spica, as part of the Equestrian club. You are the Prince of the schools. Basically, you would make a better boy than girl, but who am I to judge? You are really suave with the ladies but you seem to have developed an attachment to Hikari-chan. She gave you a scarf, the only present you have accepted from one of your fans! You attend St. Spica.
Take this quiz!

Ah, sorry, was watching the Gokujou Seitokai episodes I missed on youtube this afternoon ... XD. Anyways, I'm dropping Gokujou Seitokai ... it's been dragging freaking too long and I don't seem to have the motivation to blog on it any longer. Besides, I'll probably be going to work soon and I think blogging StoPani is enough for me XD and probably do some manga reviews and stuff, dunno.

Page 9's sidenotes & probably spoilers;
In Mai Otome, when Shizuru Viola was a student in Garderobe Academy, she was Number One of the Three Pearls, the equivalent of Garderobe's Student Council which is also known as 'Trias'. At that moment, Natsuki Kruger who was a year younger, was Coral Number Two. Each student in the Pearl grade were assigned two room attendents from the Coral grade to assist the Onee-samas. It seems that Natsuki used to be Shizuru's 'personal' room attendent back in the old days ... XD.

Uh, I'm not sure how to phrase the 'Robot Walk' thingy, because the translation went like 'Walking with left hand and leg together then walking with right hand and leg together' and it's just way too long. Then suddenly I thought of how robots walked and decided to use 'Robot Walk' instead lol, I even tried it out on myself haha and it really does seem like a robot XD. Hope it sounds ok ...

Alrighty, time to continue watching Gokujou Seitokai episodes ... cya

Malaysia Genting Highlands Trip Day 1 and 2

[Posted @ 4:15 PM]
Got up at 5 AM, bathed then left home at 6 AM to the bus stop where the bus would pick us up. We waited for around 30 mins there, I was feeling damn restless and tired cos I slept at 2 AM lol. Anyways, when the bus arrived, my mum's cousin asked me to help her fill up the form for entry to Malaysia ... i was like, wtf?! LoL.

The bus was like rocking, bumping up and down and you asked me to write for five persons somemore ... almost died. Anyways, I was in a 'ok la, anything la' mood that morning, so I didn't say anything, I was alright with it. So we reached the Tuas custom checkpoint at hm around 7 AM, did the usual thingy there ... then arrived at J.B at around 7.30 AM, it was pretty fast. Then we had our LONG AWAITED breakfast at around 8.30 AM, I was like freaking STARVING! We had chee cheong fun, wan ton noodles and kuey chup ... so niceeeee~

It was around 9:15 AM when we finished, so we board the bus and continued the journey but damn bus driver was smoking IN the bus also ... damn damn damn. So I moved to the back lol, so comfortable, two seats by myself heh. By the time we reached Genting Highlands, it was like 5 PM le ... by the time we checked in the hotel, placed our bags in the hotel room, it was 6 PM ... so we went around shopping and went to the arcade to play~~~!

First World Hotel~.Model Of Genting Highlands.Our Hotel Room.

I think we spent around 50RM that night, with the arcade games and I managed to get my bros to accompany me to sing to a song in the cute K-Box uh room there haha. One song for 1 RM, expensive? I dunno, I was just curious what, never see before hahaha. I chose 'Yuan Dian' by YanZi and Tanya~~ Haha, I sung both versions by myself, my brothers were like, 'It's boring, get me outta here.' Haha. After playing for a while, it was 7.30 PM so we went to KFC for our dinner~~

I love Malaysia's KFC because the chickens were so juicy and pretty much oil-free XD, sooo yummy. We bought the Combo B, then got 15 pieces of chicken, 2 mashed potatos, 1 cheese wedges, 1 coleslaw then I called another 2 cheese wedges and two large coke. I had three pieces, Chuz had four, Fish had three, Mum had three and the maid had two. Soo full~ haha. Anyways, after that, mum went shopping, we went to the arcade to play again~ because there're no good seats for the movies -.-|||. I wanted to watch 'Cars' but the seats left were the 1st and 2nd rows lol, see what shit la lol. X-Men 3, we watched before le, then 'The Omen' was at 11.15 PM, which was too late ... so we spent another 40RM on games till around 10 PM, we went back to the hotel room.

Mocha, Chocolate, Green Tea.

Along the way, we stopped by Starbucks and bought Ice Frappuccino®~~~ I had chocolate, Chuz had mocha while Fish had green tea lol. I think Fish regreted choosing green tea haha, dunno why he chose a drink he never drank before.

Morning Scene~.First Stop, Green House.Second Stop, Spinner!

The next morning, woke up at 8 AM, left the hotel room at around 9.15 AM to the outdoor theme park~~~~ Bought 3 adult tickets for 108RM then first stop was the Green House cos we were waiting for the Spinner to start hahaha. After that, we sat the Cyclone, funnn~. Next we sat the Pirate Train, boooooring, I recommend you NOT to sit, it's damn boring, not scary, just nothing. After that, I, myself, alone, went to the Space Shot LOL, SO FUN!!! Very intense, it's like my heart dropped down. The Space Shot used to be this rapid vertical ascent ride but now it's rapid descent ride, wah it's even more thrilling haha. The view was GREAT from the top, when I was going up, I was like, ehh why haven't we reached the top yet? Haha, the 6 seconds of slow ascent was like 6 hours to me. Then suddenly, it just fell, I can't even scream but my brain was going 'HOLY SHIT!' Hahaha.

Anyways, let me tell you this damn funny incident, my bros and I went going to the Corkscrew ride but it was closed at that time, then when I turned and looked up the sky, I saw 20+ pieces of MONEY [It's blue, so it's 50RM!] flying out of a man's shirt pocket while that guy was sitting the Space Shot LOL! I was like 'WAH It's RAINING MONEYYYYY!!!' LOL. My bros and I then went around where the money could had fell for money hunt but didn't managed to find any la lol. While there, we sat the Space Adventure, it was another quite boring ride.

NEW RIDE~.Flying Dragon.On The Monorail.

After that, it was kinda drizzling ... when we queued up for the Flying Dragon ride, damn, it was our turn next, the staff came up and said it's temporarily closed because of the rain. I was like WTF, I'm not leaving this freaking place till I sat the ride! LoL. Stupid rain, made us wait for 30mins then it was open again, so Chuz and I went up, Fish stayed behind cos he's scared. Anyways, the Flying Dragon would pass through the indoor theme park right above where the KFC, Burger King and Mac Donalds' were situated lol so I told Chuz to yell 'I LOVE KFC!' when we pass by there LOL!!!!! We did, and it's so freaking funny hahaha. After that, we wanted to go to the Rolling Thunder Mine Train but it was closed, so went back and sat the Monorail ... wait for around 20mins again before we got up and wasted another 15mins on it lol. It's all Fish's fault, he wanted to sit on it.

Flying Coaster!~.The Wrist Band For Outdoor Theme Park And Starbucks Receipt.Guide Map.

By the time we got off the Monorail, it was like 2 PM, so we rushed up to queue for the Corkscrew cos it's opened now, BUT, it rained HEAVILY and it was temporarily closed AGAIN! DAMN, why?! When it's our turn next again! WHY?! So we ran back to the shelters to wait for the rain to stop but after waiting for 30mins, it got heavier ... DAMN. So we left the theme park to have lunch at Burger King, had the family meal lol. After we finished it was 2.45 PM, we saw the Flying Dragon operating again but we haven't got time to walk back up to the Corkscrew ride so Chuz and I played the new ride, Flying Coaster, which was nearer to us, paid 10RM each but we still had to wait 20mins for it to test run and stuff. So when we got up the ride, it was 3.35 PM and the ride finished in less than 5mins LOL, so we rushed back to the hotel lobby to meet mummy. After that, we left at 5 PM ... damn I could HAD played the Corkscrew ... I was freaking pissed. Anyways, by the time we arrived home, it was like 1.30 AM ... bathed, went online, then slept at 4 AM haha.

Strawberry Panic! Ep12

[Posted @ 2:11 PM]
After watching Strawberry Panic! Ep12, finally everything is falling into place.

Ahh In Nagisa Onee-sama's Warmth.Byebye~Your Heart's Beating Fast Nagisa.

Amane’s narrating the opening as she talked about the start of summer vacation and most of the students living in the Ichigo-sha would be going back to their homes. To Amane, it’s the real start of summer vacation because there would be no one in school and there’s no need to worry at how others would look at her in this short break. Scene changed to Chiyo bidding a very tearful goodbye to her beloved Nagisa Onee-sama as they would be away for more than a month lol. While Chiyo’s buried in the warms of Nagisa’s boobs lol, Tsubomi pushed her away while giving her a smirk haha. Along with her, Hikari and Yaya came to say goodbyes to Nagisa and Tamao so were the St Lulim girls, Chikaru, Kagome, Kizuna and Lemon. Back in the Ichigo-sha, Nagisa wondered why Rokujou and Shizuma were not going home, Tamao said that it was said that in their six years in Ichigo-sha, Rokujou and Shizuma had not gone home even once. Nagisa’s puzzled and replied that if she could go home, she would have gone but because both her parents were overseas, she had to stay in the Ichigo-sha. Speaking of it, Nagisa asked Tamao why she isn’t going home. Tamao placed her book down, had a serious expression and told Nagisa that Ichigo-sha IS her home. In a flash, Tamao’s clutching Nagisa’s hands while on a seiza position telling her that as long as Nagisa’s in Ichigo-sha, it would be the heartwarming home she would never leave. [LOL!] Nagisa reminded Tamao that she said before she would return home during summer vacation, Tamao sighed and said that it never crossed her mind that it would be her family that would tear her apart from Nagisa. [Double LOL!]

Tamao added that she’s worried about Nagisa if she’s not there to look out for her. Nagisa replied that Tamao’s being a little paranoid, Tamao forcefully disagreed while shifting her view towards Shizuma, saying that her intuition is never wrong. [Boy, was she soooo right lol.] Tamao noticed that after Summer School, the way Shizuma looked at Nagisa was a little different. At that point, Shizuma turned and looked at them, Nagisa’s heart beat faster and her temperature rose =O. Nagisa denied all those but Tamao wasn’t convinced and said she’s canceling her trip home. Nagisa tried to persuade Tamao’s decision by saying that Rokujou would be at Ichigo-sha too. That moment, Rokujou turned and smiled at them, Tamao got even more fearful and assumed that Rokujou might be interested in Nagisa lol. Just then, Rokujou and Shizuma came over to their side asking to speak to Nagisa. Tamao rushed forward [in such a cute way] and asked for what purpose were they looking for HER Nagisa. Shizuma frowned and repeated, ‘Yours?’. Rokujou and Shizuma offered to tutor Nagisa French because Rokujou said that it’s a no-no for St Miator students to barely pass French. Nagisa was like ‘God, oh no, French again. My summer vacation~’ LoL. Tamao seemed to see this as a great opportunity and requested Rokujou to keep tutoring Nagisa in her absence while Nagisa looked on, defeated lol.

What Do You Want From MY Nagisa?!Grinning Amane~You Look Weird This Way.

The next day, Nagisa [in a cute voice] begged Tamao to come back fast lol, because she don’t wanna spend her days studying French. Before Tamao left, she untied the red ribbon around her neck, the action freaked Nagisa a little out lol, but actually Tamao just wanted to give the red ribbon to her as a sorta lucky charm. After that, Rokujou started tutoring the struggling Nagisa as she whined how nice it would be if there’s a French-less world lol. Suddenly, Rokujou had a serious expression on as she said that Shizuma and she would be graduating next year and Nagisa had three more years to go. Nagisa said, there’s three more years, Rokujou cut in, just three more years and had this sorrow face on. Shizuma interrupted and told Nagisa to take a break. While walking out, Nagisa saw a student looking for something in the storage room. The student replied that she’s looking for a bucket, Nagisa pointed to the bucket just below the student. The student turned around and Nagisa realized that the student’s none other than Ootori Amane. After that, Nagisa helped Amane brush her horse and they chatted for a while. Nagisa asked why Amane wasn’t going home, Amane replied that she’s worried for her horse, Star Bright and her team members all went home so she stayed back, besides this way she felt more relaxed. That time, Nagisa blushed and thought to herself how cool Amane looked when she smiled.

The girls sat on the fence for a break, Nagisa told Amane about what happened early and said that Rokujou probably disliked her because she’s too stupid. Amane disagreed and said that probably because Rokujou’s getting married to an unknown chap after graduation that she’s feeling the stress. Amane looked at Nagisa and told her that she’s such a mysterious [Fushigi] girl. Nagisa got a little distracted and fell off the fence lol. Nagisa was expecting Amane to help her up but Amane merely bended over, staring at Nagisa’s face, saying that why, the St Miator students she knew were like birds in a cage but, Nagisa’s different, such a mysterious girl. Suddenly, Amane’s horse neighed, Shizuma was standing in front of them with her arms crossed and looking not too happy at the sight she had just witnessed. In a solemn voice, Shizuma said that break time’s over, Nagisa got up, apologized and left. Amane walked towards Shizuma and greeted her however, Shizuma addressed Amane as ‘St Spica’s Prince’, startling Amane for a moment. [A far cry from the moments where they looked pretty chummy together in previous episodes.] Glaring hard at Amane, Shizuma told Amane to get her own bitch in St Spica instead of stealing hers in St Miator, bitch uh I mean, to find her princess in St Spica instead. [Sorry, can’t help it lol.] Amane tried to explain to Shizuma but she already left. Amane was left alone, musing to herself, Prince huh, she’s also one of those caged birds.

Get Your Own Bitch From St Spica, Amane.Let's Dance.Finally, KISS!

Back in the Ichigo-sha, it’s Shizuma turn to tutor Nagisa, Rokujou was nowhere to be found, Shizuma told Nagisa that Rokujou apologized for earlier. Shizuma continued reciting the French words while Nagisa looked on wondering if Shizuma had specially went to get her. Shizuma gazed back at Nagisa, Nagisa felt nervous because only two of them were in the room and her heart’s beating real fast, distracted by it, she accidentally messing up her assignment lol. It was almost dusk, Nagisa finally finished her assignment, Shizuma collected the paper and got up. Nagisa asked why Shizuma’s not checking her paper, she replied that Rokujou would do it. Nagisa said that they seemed real close, Shizuma added that they have been room mates ever since entering the Ichigo-sha. As a reward for Nagisa’s hard work, Shizuma suggested that they go visit the Matsuri aka summer festival. Nagisa got really excited but little did she know that they were only going to view the fireworks from behind the bars of the dorm gates LOL. Nagisa was like ‘I can’t even hear the sounds of the fireworks ORZ ...’ That moment, Shizuma said that Amane’s right, they were like birds locked in a cage, looking at the outside scenery through the gate bars. Nagisa replied that well, it’s better than being lonely isn’t it? Nagisa wondered out loud why she’s feeling lonely during the Summer School although she’s surrounded by everyone.

Shizuma replied that she did too, Nagisa mistook it for Shizuma hearing the sounds of the fireworks too but later realized the true meaning of Shizuma. Shizuma extended out her hand and asked if Nagisa knew why they were feeling as such? Is there anyone who shared the same feelings? Nagisa replied no and took Shizuma’s extended hand. Shizuma told Nagisa that she would teach her =O and whirled Nagisa in a dance like motion towards the side of the pool and nearer in front of her. Leaning forward, Shizuma noticed the red ribbon tied around Nagisa’s wrist and asked her what was that. -Flashback- That morning, Tamao tied the red ribbon on Nagisa’s wrist and told her that it’s a lucky charm and would bless Nagisa in her studies, her quick return from home and ... Tamao didn’t continue, told Nagisa to take care and left. -End of flashback- [I’m assuming Tamao’s going to say and their love together? LoL] Nagisa replied that it’s a lucky charm Tamao gave to her. Shizuma repeated, Suzumi Tamao? [Omi gosh, isn’t that the name of my rival in love?!] Jealous, Shizuma’s face darkens and began tugging the red ribbon off. Confused, Nagisa backed off, yelling no but Shizuma persisted. Nagisa tripped and fell into the pool, along with Shizuma on top of her. In the water, Shizuma grabbed Nagisa’s by the shoulders and pulled her towards her, paused for a moment before they locked lips. Nagisa was shocked at first as her eyes widen upon contact but she didn’t resist and a while later, she closed them as the red ribbon around Nagisa’s wrist loosen and floated away. [I repeated that 5 times to ensure that my eyes were not playing tricks on me lol]

Nice Scene ...You Are Mine!!!!Boobs ...

Scene changed to Nagisa in Shizuma’s shower room, Nagisa flashback to what happened before, touching her lips and wondering what was she doing … The shower room door opened, Shizuma walked in and said she left towel and clothes there and exited. Nagisa’s now dressed in a red dress and sitting on Shizuma’s bed while Shizuma’s in the shower, probably preparing her seduction attack on Nagisa later. Nagisa’s still wondering what was she doing as she looked around the surroundings of Shizuma’s room. A little hazy, Nagisa said that yes, she has to return after thanking Shizuma. It was then known that Shizuma had been Etoile since she was in Grade 2. Now Shizuma’s out from the shower and dressed in this elegant lowwww-cut velvet black dress and a sapphire pendent around her neck. [I say, Shizuma has great taste in night lingerie ... could probably melt Pluto away lol] Blushing at Shizuma’s dress or her mistake, I’m not sure, Shizuma took this chance and leaned in. Shizuma brushed her fore finger around Nagisa’s lower lips and said it was [the kiss] Nagisa’s first time isn’t it? Not waiting for Nagisa to reply or rather Nagisa’s still woozy, Shizuma said that it’s not her first time ... [Shizuma seemed pretty experienced then?] moved in and whispered in Nagisa’s ears, but with her, it might be the last time. [=O, Shizuma’s really serious] Scared, Nagisa pushed Shizuma away but found herself back against the bed and fell on it. Right after Nagisa fell on the bed, Shizuma pinned both Nagisa’s wrist against the bed, Nagisa looked at her pinned wrists and got frightened.

All this while, Shizuma’s glazing deeply into Nagisa’s eyes, mumbling Nagisa’s name and Nagisa seemed unable to move like many times before. Shizuma began caressing Nagisa’s cheeks, lips, neck, collarbone and finally her breasts at that moment Nagisa left out a gasp. Encouraged by Nagisa’s responsive gasps, Shizuma smirked, moved forward and straddled her. Nagisa seemed to be in a really subconscious state of mind as Shizuma hovered around Nagisa’s chest area and a rustling sound was heard as Shizuma moved the left sleeve of the dress down Nagisa’s arms. Leaning in to kiss the exposed skin while whispering Nagisa’s name, Shizuma suddenly had a vision of a black haired girl whimpering her name. [KAORI!!!!!] Shizuma stopped her actions, clearly shaken by the vision as sweat dropped down her forehead. The seemingly intoxicated Nagisa began to sober up and slide back from the stoned Shizuma above her. Nagisa noticed Shizuma staring painfully ahead unblinkingly. Taking this chance, Nagisa got off the bed, thanked Shizuma for the day and left leaving the still frozen Shizuma on the bed. Outside the hallway, Rokujou noticed Nagisa leaving Shizuma’s room and making a hasty getaway. Puzzled for a moment, Rokujou suddenly realized something must had happened and in a serious tone, mumbled Shizuma’s name. [Oh Shizuma, not again ...~ Rokujou must be thinking haha I kinda feel sad for Shizuma, she looked so lonesome on the bed ... XD, no seriously, she looked so wounded.]

What Have I Done?! ......I'm Here For You, Nagisa.

The next day, Tamao came back with tons of gifts for Nagisa, kneeled in front of the weary Nagisa still in the red dress and exclaimed how much she missed her lol. Nagisa replied that it has only been a day ... Tamao began rubbing her cheeks against Nagisa’s hands, replying that it’s a LONG day ... Tamao noticed Nagisa in the red dress and looked questioningly but Nagisa just smiled. Tamao began rubbing the missing red ribbon wrist and Nagisa apologized that she lost it. When Tamao asked her where, Nagisa replied that she couldn’t remember. Tamao gave Nagisa a hug to comfort her as she snuggled in Tamao’s arms, planning to probably tell Tamao what happened. Meanwhile, Shizuma’s at the piano apparentl acting like usual with Rokujou. -END -

A seriously bold development, Nagisa looked seriously scarred as she doesn’t seem to recall what happened or did she chose to forget it? Anyways, on lighter terms, I like the jealous and possessive Shizuma when she reprimanded Amane to get her own princess. It’s no wonder Shizuma would be so aggressive in this episode, she had just realized and confirmed her feelings for Nagisa not too long ago and probably feeling a little intimidated. It’s like a little puppy growling at every single thing that approaches its bone regardless of good or bad aha XD. Anyways, the red ribbon Tamao had tied on Nagisa’s wrist seemed to be the trigger that snapped Shizuma’s usually composed mind, as she realized that if she doesn’t take action now, Tamao might actually take Nagisa away. Oh, Shizuma got annoyed when Tamao called Nagisa ‘hers’ lol, in the manga, Shizuma also got annoyed and even slapped Tamao’s hand away when Tamao called Nagisa ‘hers’ and acted all lovey-dovey in front of her. Probably the aggressive behaviour was Shizuma’s way of telling Nagisa that she’s hers, although I prefer the manga’s, ‘If you let anyone else touch you, I’ll punish you~’ Hahaha.

Shizuma’s bold seduction plan seemed to backfire as she was troubled by her past [finally Kaori!] and at the same time, guilty or fearful of betraying her old love and seemed to push herself further from Nagisa. Such a waste, Shizuma pushed things too quickly, Nagisa had barely recognized her feelings for Shizuma at the fireworks scene, moved on to a kiss in the pool [It’s really romantic, forget the chlorine ok] and lastly bedding. Three bases in an evening, no wonder poor Nagisa was traumatized!! Haha. For now, I really hope Shizuma would go explain everything to Nagisa instead of them ignoring each other ... if not Tamao could really snatch Nagisa away.
