Katt: I was alarmed that upon returning home, this latest Kuragehime episode was nowhere to be seen! …Then I realized that Funimation just hadn’t updated their main page with the new episode, even though they uploaded it. (Then I realized that I hate when they stream from Hulu because it doesn’t let anyone outside of the U.S. watch…) Anyway, skipping to the ‘happily ever after’, I finally found my Kuragehime! And it was GOOD!

Minnie: Hi everyone! For all of you who care, Gorgeous Geek Gang (our allies) passed in the YTChorus Competition and moved on to Round 3! Congrats guys! We love you~ As for me, I am here with your Episode 8 vlog after 2 hours of sleep!! Prepare for the worst guys!!
Minnie’s Overall Rating for Episode 8: 8/10
Minnie’s Anticipating for Next Episode: 8/10
TAAN: I’m skipping episode 6 because there wasn’t much to say about it, and also because it wasn’t really connected to the plot, and I didn’t have time anyways. This shouldn’t really be a problem. Compared to the current plot presented in episode 7, it was really nothing but a weak character development episode. In short, Haruka gets involved in a case where the ghost is one who hid part of herself the same way Haruka does, and in solving the case, she is encouraged by the ghost to be more open or something. It wasn’t much.
On a side note, I have an exam this Monday, another test next Monday, one more that Tuesday, and a speech the Thursday right after. And probably another test the Monday after that. So, unfortunately the quality of my posts won’t improve much over time. That is terrible, but it is the solution I decided upon when trying to balance my schedules.
Katt: Okay, I am going to have to keep my post on Kuragehime brief this week. It is that time of the semester where all of us are getting swamped with schoolwork, myself not exempted from this even though I am old. I figure I should perhaps prioritize my schoolwork over blogging…I know, it’s upsetting, but it must be done because I am such a terrible procrastinator!
Minnie: It is nearly 1 am in the morning and I need to wake up early later today so nothing to say really before this video except… this video is not up to par than usual. Please forgive? I am going to sleep now…

Katt: So I didn’t go into school today, which means I got to be even more eager about Kuragehime‘s standard Thursday release because I could watch it as soon as Funimation posted it – yaaay! I still haven’t watched Shiki, though, because that I refuse to watch it until it dark outside. But that’s a digression since I’m here to talk about Kuragehime, not Shiki anyway…
Minnie: This episode is OYZ is not as exciting as last week, but that’s because there’s no baddies to kick the ass of right? In any case, I know I’ve been slacking off on Bakuman but I should be able to get a vlog up on that as well. Double feature? But since this is a Zakuro post, I will move on to talk about the anime in question! Listen to my vlog please~ Thank you so much to all those who are supporting me!

TAAN: Well, that was a long period of intermission. I somehow had a series of tests and speeches several days in a row, so I’ve had no time to blog. But anyways, now I’ve been complaining about how this series has been just a fairly average and uninteresting slice of life so far, but these last two episodes change everything (hopefully). There was actually enough going on that I wasn’t actually able to keep track of it all the first time I watched both episodes. Granted, I was in a hurry and wasn’t paying much attention, but that’s besides the point. I’m hoping that the rest of this series will follow the plot that was just set up, and not return to random slice of life type episodes, but I really doubt that. Also, I know the next episode is out, but I haven’t had time to watch it and I really want to get these two done.
Katt: It’s everybody’s favourite day of the week again~ (and by ‘everybody’s’ I mean MINE!) I have been so caught up in finally reading NANA this past week that I haven’t even glanced at manga updates, which means that if perchance the next Kuragehime chapter was posted, I didn’t know about it and thus this episode is brand new to me. Success! Thanks so much to those who commented on the last post; it’s always wonderful to know that people are actually reading these posts of mine. =)
