Now choose! Which one’s cuter? ( ＾ω＾ )”
|Hello friends! I’m sorry for the late post, is it just me or is this fall bursting with awesome anime? I’m actually following 11 series — let’s hope I can keep up with them. xD Here with this week’s dose of moe fluffiness, enjoy~|
Rikka and Yuuta are becoming an extremely entertaining duo! Although I confess the humor that they provide doesn’t getting me laughing till my sides hurt, they still do make me smile in a creepy oh-god-this-is-so-moe-I-love-it way. Yuuta seems like he’s come to terms with the fact that he’s going to be stuck with Rikka for a long, long time, and rather than trying to get rid of her he’s more of just trying to convince others (and also himself) to ignore her weird antics. His exasperation juxtaposed to her undying enthusiasm is really fun to watch, and he’s actually being dragged along on her ~magical~ adventures. I like how they act as one another’s anchors – Yuuta is the voice of reason who keeps Rikka attached to the real world, while Rikka is the strange one who keeps Yuuta connected to the exciting world of magic. Rather different, but they do in fact balance each other out and provide us with many funny, adorable moments. Seeing things from their opposing points of view, I think, is what makes the show enjoyable.
Another three join the party
New characters this week! Firstly, although Nibutani Shinka already appeared last week, it wasn’t until now that she’s been properly introduced to us. She’s your standard school belle – pretty, popular and also a responsible class president. She is, of course, cute (this show is just full of cute I don’t even know how to dislike anyone this cute) but other than that, we still don’t know much about her. I wonder how she’ll react when she finds out about Yuuta and Rikka’s wildly imaginative minds, though I’m betting that she’ll hop on board right away.
Kumin-senpai is so happy-go-lucky and naïve in a way it’s funny. She takes all the craziness from Yuuta and Rikka in and goes with it – it looks like so much fun! Magic, running in the park in the middle of the night, she’s all up for it. I’ve yet to meet a senpai in real life that is this easygoing and ditsy, although I think I’d like to 8)
I’d like to take this moment to express my admiration Rikka’s oneechan and the way she deals with her crazed younger sister and her friends so well, I’m impressed. I loved the way she handled Yuuta and totally blackmailed him into helping out with the cat. She also makes using a ladle as a weapon look cool, which seems to be the trend recently – turning household items deadly. Guns? Pshhh, frying pans and ladles are the new in. She’s an awesome older sister that’s to be feared and also formidable opponent for Rikka.
Magic – it’s all in her head?
I LOVE those magical battle scenes! They’re done so beautifully they could be in Cardcaptor Sakura, but +1238974 animation quality. Come to think of it, why hasn’t KyoAni animated any magic anime yet? YOU’RE IN THE WRONG GENRE, GUYS. Jokes aside, I think I would have enjoyed it just as much if chu2koi was actually an anime about magic. Awesome magical powers, y u only exist in her head? To be able to dramatize such battle scenes though, you’d have to wonder what on earth is going on in her brain – anyhow, real or imaginary, I’d like to see more of this. *w*
Chu2koi this week was… moe (sorry no other adjective can more accurately summarize this show). I do wonder how they’re going to grow from here though – I can see Rikka rubbing off on Yuuta, but I can’t really see Rikka becoming a rational adult. I’m expecting to see a balance being struck between growing up and still knowing when to have fun, but I wonder how KyoAni is going to pull it off. Also, romance (actual romance which doesn’t involved ero dreams about swimming pools) will probably be coming in soon – will Yuuta go for the class president or the neighbor with the overly-imaginative mind? I don’t know what to expect from here actually – 10 more episodes of Daily Adventures with Rikka and Yuuta and Friends?
Here’s some derp to last you till next week:
