“It’s like being drawn to something beautiful despite your fears “ – Kumiko
This is literally the whole yuri fandom as they watch Hibike! They know what might happen (or what did happen in the novels) and they jump over board just about every time Mattaku-sensei or Shoe1 is mentioned but always come back when KumiRei happens! Seriously, just this Friday night I might have been the only one still aboard this ship. Then when the preview of this episode hit, those back on board could have been counted on one hand. And now after this episode it’s like back to before episode 10 aired! Has a series affected people like this? I think not! It’s like watching Titanic reverse-sink or something!
Not that I am mad at those who change their hearts every other episode at a simple scene or anything because this episode dear readers! It was like KyoAni was fed up with being called trolls so they up’ed the yuri up to 11 (no pun intended) and I say yuri and not just KumiRei because the yuri sprang up from every other corner like it was a series by Morinaga or Shizuru-sensei!
The couples that might have been hinted at were outed and those that already sailed hit shore this episode. It goes without saying that this episode totally OWND episode 8! Not only did KumiRei out-do themselves this time around but we also got other ships into focus and some totally new ones!
I really don’t know about you all but this series is going into the archives for me. No matter what happens to KumiRei there are other ships now to consider even if they pale in comparison and even KumiRei will still stay in my heart. I don’t care about the future, this is the now and KumiRei is dominating. Worrying about the novels is like worrying about death in real life – What is the point of living if we all die in the end kind of deal is what I see this as!
But before we go any further, just a reminder that Homucifer is watching over us…
