Hibike! Euphonium AMV – Happy [Kumirei]


So sorry to keep you waiting dear all who voted! Later last week I was searching for Kumirei vids on youtube and one of the search suggestions was ‘kumiko x reina happy’. In terms moon speak, that means that I was totally bitch-slapped! I just knew I had to finish this thing.

But because I took too long in between start to finish, my clips got all messed up since I reinstalled the OS twice since starting it. So please, I apologize for the artifacts you will see.

As for Season 2, well I did indeed say that I would watch it but only until it is over. Even though it looks promising as far as I am concerned Season 1 is all that matters. I am collecting the episodes in order to watch them in one go because even I have some resistance it seems.

I supported Kumirei in S1 until the end so I am not obliged to do the same, especially given KyoAni’s track record in sequels..or whatever…And so I am waiting. Just so you know, no matter what happens I am watching it still. There are moments that not even a het Ending will get the pleasure away from me enjoying!

Na-uh! We are not yet at the level of being that picky!

Anyway, enjoy the vid to all who voted for Leona Lewis’ ‘Happy’ to be the song for my Kumirei AMV!

See ya!


KumiRei Mini Cd Drama


I have had this audio file for a while now. In fact I don’t even remember where I found it. Either way TokyoToshokan doesn’t have a subbed version of it that I could find. It probably exists some where on a blog and I will be going out to search for it but that can wait, for, this morning as I got to work, that audio file finally made it in the queue and I had the pleasure of listening to it!

Mein Gott!

The delusions I was having through their exchange in this mini drama were off the charts! My yuri powers were activated meaning that I did not need no subtitles to understand what they were talking about so let’s talk about this, like, right now.

Hibike! Euphonium ep13 – BEST END!

Hold me

I don’t want to live anymore!

What the hell am I supposed to do every Tuesdays now? My life is meaningless without Kumirei to look forward to. Hell, I am even missing the insanity that went on in all the Hibike discussion sites! Nothing is gonna be the same ever again!

Perfection – Only way I can describe the way this series ended, hell, the whole series overall! The final episode was the best out of them all and I all but give up on anyone who was disappointed by this final episode! You don’t deserve anything if you did not truly love this closure! So much happening, so much KumiRei! You know how we used to get a moment each episode of the two? Well, this episode there was not one, not two, not three, but four!! We got four awesome KumiRei moments in the span of one episode!!! This is the only episode that should not have any time to spare on ‘not the focus of the anime’ moment like many seem to want to think of KumiRei!

Based KyoAni not only gave everyone else their due, actual competition and putting a stop to drama between Kumiko and Shoo1 but they kept to the skeleton of the anime story. And that is KumiRei’s closeness.

Seriously, why is it so hard to comprehend that the anime was about KumiRei first and everything else second?! 80% of promotional material is all about these two AND the distance between them! The anime began not with the focus on the actual music (KumiRei’s school playing and losing and focusing more on the team as a whole) but on KumiRei and their reactions on losing! Kumiko changed her mind to join the club because of Reina! Kumiko wanted to improve and worked harder because of Reina! KumiRei are the primary focus of this anime and the music is secondary! Hell, this episode that was supposed to be primarily about the competition was mostly spent on who? Yeah, I thought as much!

I have mentioned in in almost every post about this show but the progress of the story has been due to the chemistry between these two. At the basic level it has been Reina at the core of everything because she affected almost all of Reina’s decision through out the show! Every step forward had Reina’s insignia on it and though it mostly affected Kumiko’s life, if we take this to be Kumiko’s story then Reina, by relation, also affected the progress of the overall storyline.

I was just so blown away by the last episode! I didn’t actually think that KyoAni would deliver. I was hopeful but I was ready to be let down so hard I would lose my sanity! But KyoAni delivered and in Aces! They could have just as easily only given us that last shot, the best ever last scene in a movie, TV, or game that I have ever seen by the way! But they did not! They gave and gave us through out the episode as if saying ‘sorry, you can’t deny this anymore! We will remind you that we are seriously about KumiRei until the best deal sealer at the very end!’ And man, what a scene that was!

Now sure, me having a major fetish with hands, especially hand-holding, should be enough to tell that I was going to worship based KumiRei as the ship of the year but come on! Anyone who did not appreciate that ending, that whole scene, doesn’t deserve this series! God, I am so happy and glad that I got the chance to watch this as it aired! Sure there was a lot of anger towards the viewers (yes, the viewers not the show, hell, I liked Shoo1 more than most of those commenters in any discussion threads) but that made the conclusion all that heavenly!

Oh great, I am only on the introduction and it’s already 600 words! At this rate I either won’t have anything to say about the actual scenes or I will have to write a novel just to discuss a single episode! So with that said…

Me and KyoAni

Katta ze!!

I am not even surprised! There goes people once again ditching Hibike after this episode. I am so totally rolling my eyes right now! Are there like, two different episodes that get aired every week because it seems to me that I might be watching something different from what others watch! I have watched this episode three times and I yet have to see something that is so wrong about it! But really, this happens every damn episode. Last week it was Shoo1 is being saved for the next episode I just know it’ and this week it’s ”Shoo1 is being saved for the last episode guys, I just know it. This is foreshadowing’ and I am like…Seriously? I swear every damn time! I have no idea why that Shoo1 scene got so many jimmies rustled and neither did that Mattaku-sensei thing warrant such reactions. Speaking of the Mattaku/Kumiko scene, I don’t mean to brag but I saw that coming from a mile away. As soon as I saw Kumiko in school with him alone I knew something was going to happen to cause the world to go into flames. The thing is that I don’t see what the big deal is. There has to be a reason why I saw this coming so let me explain.

This anime, at its core, is about Reina and Kumiko’s relationship, right? What have we had from them so far? Just good things since the very first episode (Not counting the opening flashback), hell, Reina reacted way differently at seeing Kumiko again unlike how both we and Kumiko herself thought she would react. They have been progressing so well that they have almost reached the peak of that development. This peak might explain the way others see this episode as being freindshipy than previous episodes. No relationship has only good things. Be it God and his Angels or with his best creation in man, there is always going to be conflict or a falling out at some point. How this falling out is handled is the test to the integrity of said relationship. Where I am going with this is that Reina and Kumiko haven’t had a single moment of friction ever since they took off. With only one episode to go, there had to be something! And that something came in the form of Mattaku-sensei and him and Kumiko being ‘alone together’. You could just feel the way it was forced and rushed. I found it so out of character for Kumiko to stop halfway because she suddenly had the Sapphire passion for stuffed Euphos! Kumiko acting like that was just so not her but we need to have our KumiRei tested so that their relationship can be proved to be real.

And so I wasn’t that disturbed by Reina’s reaction, in fact I would have been more disturbed if she did not react at all. But even as small this scene as it was, apparently it was enough to make others forget about what else happened in the episode. And so here I am, writing about this so I can point out the good stuff that actually happened and need to be appreciated instead of being over-shadowed by the ridiculously less important scenes of Shoo1 and Mattaku-sensei. I swear some viewers freak out just from Shoo1 being on the screen! It’s complete madness! I can’t even believe I am starting to defend him!
