Honey & Clover II – episode 1

July 26, 2006 on 12:13 am | In Honey and Clover | 1 Comment

I realised that, while I was really into Honey & Clover during its initial run, I never really thought about it afterwards. Even when the Chapters L and F came out, I reflected only on their comedic nature and didn’t even attempt to consider them in relation to the series at large.

With this first episode of the second season we are forced to revisit that which we began a year ago. As I watched, I was struck by just how trendy the whole project was: people running through streets; Japanese men singing songs of friendship and love. Still, it was something special.

So, revisiting the love triangles of a year gone past, loves complicated by everyone being aware of everyone else’s emotions and choosing to ignore them in favour of their own. Am I honestly going to be able to watch a series that consists of Yamada and Mayama being desperately unhappy by their own hands? I’m not sure I’ll be able to cope.

Yet Takemoto’s bike has evolved into a car: perhaps that evolution will be symbolic of the characters this time around.

“End of the Banquet”

The engagements are booked through the end of the world
So we’ll meet at the end of the banquet

In Utawarerumono you can cut people in half and be stabbed in both arms and then go off to your next fight without a care in the world.

With the end of this banquet, we have to look forward to the next one that Hakuoro will be invited to, possibly by nameless winged fellow who may belong to Urotorii’s clan.

Nana – episode 15

I realised something terrible while watching this episode: I am Jun/Kyosuke. I have been known to be cruel to depressed people in order to help them.
When I say “people” I mean “one person”, but still.

As for the episode: lots of fourth wall breaking and a bit too much retrospection.
