Kanon Ep 4

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Haiz... a.f.k fansubs is late. Its Sunday morning and the sub for Kanon is not out yet. I have to try tackling the raws then.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
The show starts off as usual with a girl talking in the background.

"All dreams will end, no matter how fun it is; not matter how sad it is..."

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Kyuuichi is dreaming about his past in this town. (I would have preferred more Mai action than this...)

He comforts a crying Ayu and treats her Taiyaki after her stomach gave her away.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Ayu is damn shy...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
She comments that its salty. Kyuuichi said its because of her tears.

After he finished his Taiyaki, he proceeds to ask her some questions, but she kept quiet. Kyuuichi then wanted to leave, but Ayu tugged his sleve...

They promised to meet again and pinky-sweared.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Of course, he made Nayuki wait again. -_-

Kyuuichi then woke up. In the nick of time, to see Makoto coming into his room with a Konnyaku.

Makoto counted from 3 to 1 but Kyuuichi jumped up and shocked her. Makoto was then forced to eat the Konnyaku.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
But worse was when Akiko came and saw Makoto eating Konnyaku. How could she let a guest eat Konnyaku? So Makoto got more Supper. Kyuuihci then returned to sleep.

The second day, Kyuuichi was thinking of unpacking his stuff. Makoto is suffering from indigestion? Anyway she doesn't look good. Akiko then asked Kyuuichi to bring Nayuki her lunch set as Akiko had to go out and Nayuki was in school for her CCA.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Is it just me or Akiko looked good in that picture?

Kyuuichi gave Nayuki her lunch and asked her whether it was alright to stay and watch for a while. (Bad Kyuuichi, you just wanted to look at girls in bloomers...but don't worry, we all enjoyed it along with you ^_^)

After enjoying the view, Kyuuichi then leaves the school but met Kaori; she has literiture club activities. Kyuuihci said that they 2 are so into their CCA's, but Kaori said the true reason was she doesn't want to be at home. (Then Kaori and Kyuuichi said another bunch of words that I can't comprehend, but its about Nayuki. -_-)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I'm in trouble, I'm thinking Akiko looked hawt here...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Kyuuichi then went to the shopping district where he met Akiko and helped her carry a sack of rice. (btw, its the same store in AIR. Where Yukito carried rice for Minagi's mom.)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
At this juncture, guess who appears? Yep, Ayu again. Luckily for Kyuuichi she felled before slamming into him.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Looking at this picture, Ayu really seemed short. Or maybe tiny would be a better word?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Kyuuichi introduced Ayu and Akiko, and Akiko thought for a moment where she had heard of the name, but dismissed it as a coincidence. Anyway, Kyuuichi needs to unpack his things today, so Ayu was welcomed to help.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Reaching home, Makoto was strangely acting wierd and wasn't enthusiastic in meeting Ayu.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Makoto was strangely, tired from carying just 1 box.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Anyway, a Taiyaki solved the problem and the day was spent helping Kyuuichi.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Ayu was treated to Castella. (Go watch Yakitate Japan for more info ^_^)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
In the evening, Nayuki returned home and asked him for her Notebook. After some thinking, Kyuuichi remembered he left it in school.

"I'm home"

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
"Yuuichi, can I have my notebook back?"

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
"Eh?! I need it to do my homework..."

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
"Don't 'cya' me..."

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
"If you have to go to such an extent to get my book back, then I guess I'll rather give it up..."

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Kyuuichi then decided to go to the school to get the notebook. And he saw Mai, armed with a sword.

Singapore Blogging Dorama

Over this week Ms Wee's rant on Derek Wee's blog post made headlines and she even shut her blog down.

Moral of the story:

1. Be prepared to stand by what you preach.
2. The internet is accessible to all. Keep a diary if you do not want people to see.
3. Apologizing in LKY style doesn't work for everyone.

In case people do not understand how to apologize in LKY style, it is done as follows:
"I apologize if my words hurt you but I said nothing wrong."

That said, its better not to add fuel to fire. But one must remember the words of her father. "...I stand by her basic points..."(ST Home page 4, Thursday 26 October 2006) Come GE2011, and we shall see whether her father did change into a better person or still the "Uncaring Elite" he is.

Kanon Episode 3

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Kyuuichi(used to be U1) returns home after bringing home a huge ingredient for steamboat. (Just Joking)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
In the last Episode, the girl (makoto) fainted and Kyuuichi took her home, along with the ingredients for steamboat.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Nayuki said he bought home a really big ingredient.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Symmetrical reaction ^^

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
They bought her to a room; Nayuki asked Kyuuichi what had happened. Kyuuichi explains that the girl suddenly attacked him for no reason and then passed out.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He tried to wake her up but nothing seems to be working until Kyuuichi said to her, "Food's ready". The girl immediately woke up.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
A nice shot of Makoto.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
During dinner, Kyuuichi asked her about her identity. She doesn't remember a thing, him. After that the two fought over some food.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
After dinner, Kyuuichi searched her wallet. Nothing much was in it, save for a neoprint picture of her.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Kyuuichi decided to call the police, since its natural for the police to handle such cases. However, the girl doesn't want to. Nayuki decided to ask Akiko (her mum). Kyuuichi isn't pleased at all, as... ...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He knew that Akiko would definately agree.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
[spoiler]Doesn't Makoto look like Kamio Misuzu?[/spoiler]

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
So, since the girl is allowed to stay, and since she doesn't remember her name, Kyuuichi decided to gave her a fitting name. ^^ If you use Chinese to translate the above words, it basically means Girl who killed the entire village.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
In return, Kyuuichi got a slap.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Late at night, Kyuuichi heard some noises around in the house and decided to see what happened.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
The girl walked down the stairs suspiciously...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
looking for food.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Kyuuichi decides to play a prank on her.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
The resulting reaction? She jumped all over the place and woke everyone up. Akiko then cooked supper for her and everyone settles for some too.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
The next day in school, Kyuuichi was distracted in class, thinking about her (Makoto). Kitagawa suggested that Kyuuichi might be a playboy back then, but he dismissed that, saying that he was only 10 back then. However, he wondered whether it was true, since he doesn't remember what had happened 7 years ago.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
While pondering over all this, he lost track of the lesson. A helpful Nayuki agreed to lend him her notes.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Then, Kitagawa notified Kyuuichi of a girl in the school grounds. Kyuuichi took a look and saw the girl he met yesterday.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
At lunchbreak, he made Nayuki wait for him and went to see the girl.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
To borrow a line from Jason Miao, "Sad Girls in Snow".

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
The two talked and turned round and round. The girl said that she's looking for somebody, but then probed futher, "それは秘密です". (Translation in above picture) She said that she's suffering from a really long bout of flu. Before they parted, Kyuuichi gave his name and she gave hers as Shiori

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Of course, by the time Kyuuichi returned, Nayuki said "うそつき".

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Kyuuichi apologized and promised to treat Nayuki to make up. As they were talking, Mai and Sayuri passed by.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
(OO) I've always loved Mai for her wonderfully short skirt length. Somemore with the current rendition...makes me want to do her in -_-

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Kyuuichi was walking on the streets when Ayu jumped into him.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
They had a match of "Uguu~"

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Cute?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Afterwards, Kyuuichi gave her a treat of Taiyaki, and Ayu became so happy. Kyuuichi then mumbled that if only he could please Nayuki with that.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Ayu said she was searching for something, but she couldn't remember that was it. Kyuuichi decided to help her out.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Note: When she remembers a shop and the shop wasn't there, what does it tell about her?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Note: When her doesn't know what's a handphone, what does it says?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
This basically sums up everything about Kanon.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Kyuuichi reaches home, and was treated to a course of body slam by Makoto

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Nice clothes. ^^

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Disturbed look of Kyuuichi when he heard the name. Sawatari Makoto is an actress he used to like.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Hehe... picture of Mai and a sword. It makes me wonder just how much did Toei cutted out when both Ep3 shows approximately the same content?
