After a highly embarrassing post last week in which I completely failed to pay attention to the last minute of the episode, this week I paid utmost attention throughout the entire thing (which was difficult when I kept alt+tabbing out to watch a video game character obsessively consult his ferry ticket) So guys, when you you think they’ll save Mako again? They’ll probably create a weapon to get her out with. I wonder if Satsuki has a plan to escape from that cage? She’ll have something hidden on her body to get her out. Also what about that Ryuko eh? When she wakes up she’ll put back on that school uniform and be out for revenge again and it will be awesome. I wonder if they’re going to ever change the OP because we’ve had the same one since the very start of this show. Come to think of it, we still don’t know who killed Ryuko’s dad, whoever he is. I bet Madoka will become a magical girl next week. Why doesn’t Lelouch just use the Geass on Suzaku and tell him to leave him alone? Get in the fucking robot Shinji.
Anyway, enough fooling around. Nudist beach and the elite four are now working together and have donned the same uniform aka nothing at all. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have the teacher’s glowing pink willy mind you, although judging by some careful framing of silhouettes, Gamagoori’s wang isn’t terribly large. You need a light like a supernova to block the teachers, but Gamagoori’s is just like Mako’s brother’s dong: So small and insignificant that it doesn’t even warrant censoring. And before you ask, no I wouldn’t say that to his face.
I think by now we’re all in agreement that the best part of this show is Mako, which by extension means the most exciting and tense plot development is shipping her and Gamagoori. I’ve liked them since that episode where Gamagoori say next to her during the elite four battles, and since then I’ve been on edge waiting for every scene the two of them end up together in. The show has obviously been teasing it, but the grin that spread across my face when the show itself started to acknowledge it threatened to cleave my whole face in two. So this is what it feels like to be a shipper, eh? This is the delight you feel when the creators acknowledge your ship and the potential canon-ification arrives? It’s like supporting a football team and watching them slowly creep towards the final. People who support Chelsea or Man City are the people who instantly go for the main couple, while the people who randomly ship two dudes who looked at each other once are the Sunderland or Wigan supporters. Then again, if Wigan can win the FA Cup and Harry can finish the books banging Ron’s sister, then I suppose anything is possible in shipping.
