I am so very very very happy that Loreen won, so happy for her. Euphoria is a great song and I’ve never loved a song that my own country sent to the ESC this much. She is absolutely amazing.
And there’s more weird things coming in Gintama. Always crazy stuff. What’s with that? Twisting up intestines… Well, that guy appeaning means that they are going to do stuff with manga again.
And indeed. He is working on the manuscript for a new series, if I’ve understood that correctly. But with Gintama, you never know.
He fall asleep in the middle of it, however. And when he wake up, the script is gone.
Because the nurse at the prison is reading it.
And it’s apparently funny.
I think the guy mostly do very weird love comedy manga, though. Because of Gintoki.
And when he ask Gintoki is he (Shachi) is in love, Gintoki punch him. Through the glass. Gintoki, how jealous can you get. You like the weather girl Ketsuno Ana, right? And she is sort of your friend, so you can just proceed befriending her.
So Gintoki tell him to confess with manga. And that’s what Shachi plan on doing, so he draw a manga.
And the protagonist is.. It’s friggin’ Okita Sougo, isn’t it? Was he inspired after seeing the Prince of Planet Sadism, or something? XD But yeah, it sure looks like Sougo. Though he’s the most skilled swordsman in Shinsengumi, while this character in Shachi’s manga is quite.. useless a fencer..
And the main character is suddenly named Chousokabe. It sounds cool enough for an Okita replica, buuut…
It’s a great name but it only make me think of Chousokabe Motochika from back in the Warring States period. (I love reading about that time period, by the way. The Sengoku Jidai had so many awesome people~)
They’re talking about the nurse. She sort of.. make her own really weird edits.
It makes this chapter of Gintama pure and absolutely hilarious. Not that Gintama isn’t hilarious always when it’s not serious, but still. =3
And then she don’t only make her own edits in the lines, but draw new pages and panels, so the style changes completely.
Hissatsu Waza Secret Techniques……..
The chapter starts out the day after the end of last chapter. After the parliament house collapsed because of Saechika’s powers. Shibuya-dono is watching the news, and there has been no traces of Sakurako, Kouji and Yukihina.
Rui is unconcious, Yuuki is scribbling, Toki just sit and stare, Heike seem to be normal, but he’s not reading his books properly like he usually does. Whet most had an effect on him probably wasn’t the defeat he suffered, but rather, that Yukihina froze his arm back in place.
But I want to know what happened to you, Kouji and Sakurako… Because I love Yukihina so incredibly much.
But the ice has melted by now, and while Heike’s arm is attached again properly, that only make me worry even more.
This is effecting EVERYONE. And while Ogami locked himself into his room at the Shibuya Manison, the two Sakura’s argue about who is the Left Sakura. Both seem to be the Right Sakura.
Poor Puppy is confused, you two Sakura’s. =|
They were not prepared for the fact that he was cleaning. But still, they help out on gathering the stuff in the manison. “Cleaning up”
Instead, he is burning all the stuff.
While Heike is the only one saving any of his things from the fire, Rui, who is supposedly unconcious…
That’s very precious. Her most important is her friends and her booze. Geez, that woman. Well, I think Kouji would be similar, and Yukihina.. He drink as well, but I don’t think he’s as much obsessed as Rui and Kouji.
Sakura does her best to cheer up Ogami. Because Ogami burnt the others’ stuff to turn them back to normal, and to stop them from brooding.
But he need a push on his own, and Sakura gives him one.
That’s some very shiny panels, when she give him that push. Never mind that her hands are tiny, she still manage to give him that push and cheer him up.
It’s indeed time to get to know more about the Founders and December the 32nd.
And what seems to be coming in the next chapter…
About Sakurako. And, I’m guessing, Shibuya-dono.
She could, of course, ally with the Keikain onmyouji, but I doubt many youkai will want to do that.
And who knows what she thinks. What she is planning on doing.
Her followers – is her’s called Hyakki as well, or is it only the Nura clan and the Nurarihyon Youkai who have a Parade of One Hundred Demons? I don’t know, but I’m calling it her Hyakki. They are very happy to have her back.
Most of all Kyokotsu.
But before she can reach Hagoromo, Tenkai come in the way. He speak to Hagoromo Gitsune, calling her “Seimei-sama’s esteemed mother”. Which she is. She is much more worthy of being called ‘sama’ than Seimei is.
He also attack her. Is that any way to treat one of your own ancestors, Tenkai?
That is indeed the truth. But you know, everything is not that simple.
And then he run away, because he know that he is beaten. Not that he would agree to it, but still. Hagoromo Gitsune is strong.
And she is also the coolest mother there is.
And they have been pumeled to the ground through inwards fighting. Everyone are dead, except Jorogumo’s clan leader. Although I’m afraid she will pass away as well.
Kubinashi swears that he will kill the puppet master who killed the Jorogumo.
Rikuo returns to the Main House with Tamazuki and Dassai. He is filled in on what’s happened by Tsurara and then call for a meeting with all the Executives that are currently present at the Main House.
He tell of how Kyushu’s youkai has been wiped out, and that Hagoromo Gitsune has been revived.
And also, that they know where the Gokadoin have their base, and that they will attack it. But to do so, they have to break through the Spiral Barrier that surrounds it; created by Tenkai.
And as Hitsotsume says.
They have more visitors.
I love Zen’s expression there, by the way X3
The Keikain House have arrived at the Nura Gumi Main House. And Gyuuki calls them Rikuo’s Hyakki. Ryuuji is not pleased. Of course not. Onmyouji and Youkai joining forces. It’s all about the Keikain clan’s pride. Nothing else.
Of course Reborn knows nothing. He was only cursed, nothing more. But this is interesting; we finally get to know about the Arcobaleno Curse.
While Reborn and Tsuna are talking about this, that day’s representative battle ends.
Loudly, at that.
Wandering down the cave they ended up in, Reborn and Tsuna find murals. The walls are painted with history.
The history of the Arcobaleno.
And Reborn is surprised that Tsuna knows nothing of how they became Arcobaleno. It’s not that weird, Reborn. -_- But oh well, Tsuna’s kinda stupid most of the times, so it wouldn’t have been weird if he hadn’t known even if he had been told.
I find it hard to believe that Mammon wasn’t also in on it for the money, the missions. But (s)he want money to find a way to break the curse, so it’s a possibility (s)he became a greedy person after they were turned into babies.
But then, the representative battle of the Rainbow is in there, too. And this, Reborn does not understand.
The Arcobaleno. Everything. It’s a cycle.
The “Fated Day”. The Representative Battle of the Rainbow.
Everything repeats itself for each generation.
While it is to protect the pacifiers, it’s not fair to the ones who are cursed.
Especially not what happens if the curse is removed. I don’t want that to happen now. Most of all not to Fon and Mammon.
Bermuda tells of the Truth of the Arcobaleno.
About the Arcobaleno. About the cycle. About what happens.
That the Arcobaleno, once the curse is removed, might die, or become like the Vindice.
I don’t want them to end up like that.
I don’t want them to die even more.
Because I love the Arcobaleno.
Vindice is planning to kill Checker Face, to stop this from repeating itself any longer. This is why Bermuda want Reborn on his team. Because he is strong. And Vindice need to win, in order to kill Checker Face.
However, at the last page of the chapter, Reborn has yet to reply with a yes or no to Bermuda’s request.
This chapter’s first part (most part) is spinning cyclones.
Tsuna goes on the outside, and spins around the other guy’s cyclone. And manage to beat him, even without having his Boss Watch broken.
Impressed, M.M.? =3
Tsuna has always been like that.
Or actually, I think his test scores have gone down.
The fight is settled for now. Or, that’s what it might be, at least.
Because there show up new people.
more Vindice. Bermuda and his friend -who’s name I’v managed to forget. Great.
He says that he like Reborn. Huh.
And then he invite him to his team. Not as an allied team, but as a member of his team. Only Reborn, and none of the others.
He suck in Reborn into a Warp Hole (that’s what Mukuro calls it, at least) and Tsuna follows, because he tries to stop Reborn from being pulled in. But of course, Reborn did it on purpose. What else do you expect?
There are several color pictures in this chapter, and as always, they are gorgeous. Toboso-sensei always excels at the gorgeous. And it’s nice to the the P4 in color this soon.
The chapter starts up with describing Sebastian’s job as a Warden at the dorm. Poor guy, has to take care of all the requests that Ciel accept. Ciel, learn to do something on your own. How hard can it be putting away a few books?
And then Ciel takes all the glory.
It’s understandable how he was made the White Rabbit in the Ciel in Wonderland OVA, though.
I mean, just look at that.
“I’m so busy.”
Although he is. Ciel, have some sympathy for the guy, will you?
Having Sebastian as a nice!teacher is quite different from having him as a bad!teacher, it seems. He is so nice to the students and it makes Ciel so bewildered.
Sebastian is a very handsome and cool teacher, though.
There are so many fancy places at this school. That’s a Rich Man’s School for you, alright..
The prefects and their “fags” are meeting in the garden only for the P4, and are talking about Ciel. The new student that’s so great.
I’d say Bluer is a bit strict.
A bit like Will.
But he’s a Shinigami, and the humans have strict people, too.
And it’s against schhol regulations to call someone by their given name? I’ve never heard anything so silly.
Well, I probably have, but I can’t come up with anything at the top of my head like this.
And they talk about Ciel there, yes. But it’s not him that does all that excellent work, it’s Sebastian.
But Sir Purple, you don’t have any right to call anyone a weirdo, you know.
He’s still till my favorite among the P4, though. Because he’s awesome.
And then comes the last of the four P4 fags. Both prefect and fag are naturally loud, it seems. I love that every single one of them manage to irritate Bluer. XD
I gotta say I was surprised when this guy popped up. He’s a hilarious person, and actually, I wasn’t aware that he went to that school. And that he’s a P4’s fag, at that. X3
And him and Greenhill seem totally canon, too. As they act, all fluffy and stuff.
Or maybe Edward is just an idiot. It looks like the other guy think so, at least.
But as they talk about Ciel, they also mention that they could invite him to their garden. And the Red house’s prefect says something that seem to hurt and make his fag jealous.
So they are inviting Ciel, as all finally agreed. Bluer was the last one to do that, I might add.
But Violet, you’re awesome. First he mixed together two different… possibly iced teas..? and then plowing bubbles. That guy, seriously, is another new favorite character.
I’d say that “handsome is the wrong word to describe Cole. He’s more cute than he’s handsome.
And behind that kind smile, he’s a tricky little boy filled with jealousy.
I’d say he wouldn’t be in any risk of getting replaced, but I don’t know if it’s possible for the P4 to have fags from different dorms. I don’t think so, but as I said, I ain’t sure.
And Ciel, don’t be so oblivious, you’re at an All Boys School, of course they get excited over the good-looking kids. It’s only natural. And Cole is very feminine looking, too.
When Cole meet Ciel, he stare him up and down. As if he’s trying to figure out what’s so good about the little kid.
Because that’s what he is – a little kid.
My little brother was the same age as Ciel just two, three years back, and he’ll always gonna be a kid, but that’s not in the current topic. Errr, sorry.
Sebastian can be a anice teacher indeed! He has such a nice smile there.
Comes Ciel. And what’s with that seductive pose, I’m not a fan of Sebastian x Ciel, thanks, stop that.
Actually, Ciel x Sebastian works, but that’s not what often exist anywhere else than in my brain.
Then he orders Sebastian to do tea cakes for the P4, to impress them. And just before, he said “Why do I have to…” Where did that “I” go, huh? Spoilt child. There are a lot of them.
Heavy atmosphere. Figures Cole would give Ciel the wrong time, and then pretend like he didn’t.
Ciel does not understand. Two hours late? But he was taold to come at Four.
Then he figures out that it was Cole who did that.
And poor Edward looks like he might cry. Damn,
And Ciel will do something evil to Cole, poor guy. He was just jealous.
And Ciel is already 13? I didn’t notice, did they have his birthday in the manga? I don’t remember, because I don’t really care for Ciel. Only the times he act silly.
