That third season though…

If you are a fellow Saotome Mary lover then you know what a feast this season was! You see TWIN, the third season, focuses on Mary and Mary alone, she is the protagonist in this and it takes place when she first arrives at Hyakkaou Academy. That happened a year before Jabami Yumeko arrived! In fact this is like a story being told to Yumeko by the Journalism Club President, even though it actually starts out as a story by the Supernatural Club President Togashuki Yukimi but that threads dies real quick I guess because she becomes one of the main characters alongside Mary and her BFF Hanatemari Tsuzura.

In the grand scheme of things, the only relevant thing is that the Student Council still has friction within as some members are staging a coupe and try to initiate Mary into their cause because she comes and takes the school by storm, which grabs the attention of the Student Council, in all manors of ways!

We saw a glimpse of this in the first, or was it second season, when the twin sister of the Student Council President (Momobami Kirari) Momobami Ririka seems adamant about getting Mary to join the Council! Sadly we did not get to see Mary interact with Ririka here and I hope that it is because there is more story to be told but even if they did not meet, or even Mary meeting Kirari, she did meet other Council Members!

Like I said, some members were planning to take down Kirari and tried to recruit Mary into their group and these were the Leader and his fellow member and Fiancee Miharutaki Sakura (Played by Ikuta Erika)! Mary of course did not join them in their cause mostly because the Leader was shady as hell and treated Ladies with disrespect!

Yeah, Mary here was the opposite of the Mary we meet in the first season! This Mary had her heart in the right place and she even gets into gambling to save her friend Tsuzura from the cute bully of the first years Aiura Kokoro (played by Fukumoto Riko). Seriously, that was such a great way to open a series, if I ever saw one! The series’ end does not catch us up to the Mary we first met though, which will make things amiss if there is not more story to perfectly fit in-between this and the start when Yumeko arrives!

Back to the Student Council, the other members Mary gets to meet is one of the Craziest ones – Juraku Sachiko (played by Nagai Mijika)! I bet you she is like the President of the Justice Committee or something! She is totally scary! And totally gay!

That’s right, Sachiko-sama here is the Lady of the series and while apparently she is supposedly the main Antagonist of the manga version, she only popped in and out in the series even though she definitely had the most screentime but as far as I am concerned the Resistance group is the main antagonists!

I mean in this series we settle things with Gambling and Mary did not Gamble with Sachiko-sama, hell, Sachiko-sama wanted Mary for herself and that barely makes for a great antagonist.

Okay, now I need to read that manga!

Speaking of Sachiko-sama, she does have a slave literally on chains in Sado Mikura (Sado…hehehe) played by Hinatazaka46’s Sasaki Mirei. She of course wants to be the sole receiver of Sachiko-sama’s affection…uh…attention, so when Sachiko-sama shows interest in Mary, you know there is going to be animosity between the two, and of course there is!

And while Mary did not get to meet the Momobami twins, she did get one of their attention! I am not sure if it was Ririka standing in for Kirari or if it was actually Kirari herself but when Tsuzura and Yukimi stumble into the Council Room looking for clues to the Gambling game that Mary is currently attending, they run into Kirari, well, she was actually there but they did not see her until she called out to them when they were leaving! She asks if they are friends of Mary and notes how they seem to be having fun! She sounded almost…

Yeah, let’s not go there, next thing I know I will be day dreaming about Mary and Kirari and…Ah shit…it’s too late now!

Some old cast are here too even if they only are glimpsed at. That includes some of the other Student Council Members, like that craziest of the crazy, one-eyed Midari, even though here she still has two eyes but her mind is already gone! She’s got herself a team of girls and yeah, they are totally with benefits!

Anyway, I really love this series! It’s such a shame that Hamabe Minami-chan had to play both Yumeko and Saki because I really want another season of SAKI as well! Japan is really great at adapting Manga to series and SAKI and KAGEGURUI are the best of the best!

Anyway, I totally ship Mary with literally anyone in this series!

Sweet Dreams Are Made Of These

Last post for the day, I swear!

But in all seriousness, these two are my top Wishlist items for the moment! Not buying anything else until I get my hands on these two awesome Bluray Collections! We have already talked Kurokouchi! We have yet to talk Kakegurui Live Action but I have already watched it and the anime too! The Bluray is out now and I want my hands on it!

Speaking of Kakegurui, Season 2 has been announced for next year and not only that, a movie is also coming next year! Kind of interesting seeing as we have yet to even have a second season of the anime!

Anyway, I can’t wait for more Yumeko (Hamabe Minami AKA Saki) and Meari (Morikawa Aoi-sama)! Interestingly, the drama actually had more yuri than the anime! These two’s relationship was given more depth (even if it was little) in the drama than the anime so more of that and I am game! I mean, the show ended on Yumeko going to buy Meari a frikkin sandwich, which was asked for in such a…

Anyway, let’s not forget about Gouriki Ayame-sama as an awesomely laid back gay investigator in crime drama Kurokochi! I want muh Blurays so I can make muh music videos!

And by the gods, those Teokure CAUTION =LOVE photo sets! I will give anything to anyone that can point me where I can buy them! Anything to get those Hitomaika and Anrisa sets!! Please I will give anything!

And I just realised that I have not yet made a dedicated =LOVE post explaining my stance on the group yet! That is coming! I am just not in the mood since my Kami is currently out of service due to sickness (Missed the TIF and everything) Really miss her! Actually maybe that is one reason to post about them now! But I am out of free time >.<

At the very least you know where I stand in terms of ships, right?

Anyway, yeah, that is all for today. Sorry for the post dumps!

[Pics] Four Days To Go!

Only four days to go and SAKI (‘m gonna use caps to differentiate between the Anime and the Live Action) is back to unleash its demons upon the world of Mah-jong. And so I decided to go through the blurays for the four episodes we got so far. I am planning on posting about them before the series continues but first I have gone through the 90min behind the scenes video.

Since this is about those four episodes we got, the other schools are not in here. It is all Kiyosumi just like the early intro episodes of the anime. And also just like those episodes, the girls are still not quite close but I kind of love that fact. Just as Saki and Nodoka grew closer as the series went on, the girls too will get closer as the show goes on.

From what I have seen of them though, they are all as what you see when you watch the show, except one! The girl who plays Nodoka (Super✰Girls’ Asakawa Nana) is totally different from the character she plays! While the other girls are in-line with the characters they are playing, man even that Hirota, Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku’s Hirota Aika, was the perfect choice for Yuki. They are like animated and real versions of each other), Hamabe Minami is Saki and the same goes for the other girls but Nana, she is like the only one actually acting while the other girls are simply themselves.

Off-screen she is totally different from Nodoka. Quite funny too which was a pleasant surprise. Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, no, those aren’t fake! The other schools, as we will see, have their own girls who are as big or even bigger than her and since they went out of trouble to find equal representations of the characters, I don’t see how they would settle for a fake when they obviously have access to the real deals.

Anyway, I grabbed some caps from the video so jump ahead to those interested…

[Pics] Saki ~ Live Action Drama





To the Nationals!

Here be those pics from the small booklet that came with the Saki boxset I got a few days back. Speaking of which, it has four episodes, the ones that aired in December, which are kind of a prologue to the series come Feb. I say prologue but they are essentially the TV episodes up to the training camp in the show.

Of course that talk is for the actual episode posts but anyway, have some pics to those that are interested in knowing the girls a bit before the show commences next month.

I am so ready for this drama! Still blown away by this perfect casting! Anyway, see ya around…
