The Color of Lovers #10 — BEHOLD THE FACE OF TERROR

December 6th, 2011


Make it stop make it stop make it stop make it stop make it stop make it stop make it stop make it stop make it stop.


Thursday coverage will definitely be delayed a bit, what with a final exam and all. I’ll be ready for some stupidity and strippers by that point though… assuming they even make it out of the awful P4 investigation phase.


It’s far more amusing to think about… the creature… fattening up its prey… stalking it… waiting… waiting… waiting… to strike than what actually happened in the episode. Actually, both are kind of bizarre. Sana got increasingly angst, including but not limited to the line "Shingo and Miu have to be together… OH GOD THE CATS OR THE PEOPLE" (I may have embellished slightly) before actually sitting out in the rain and having a lesbian comforting/makeout session with Airi. Again, perhaps some embellishment, but I far prefer my version of reality.

Elsewhere, two or three episodes from the end, Shingo spontaneously tells Miu that he loves her and nobody else but her. Not really sure where exactly that came from considering that he’s shown slightly less emotion than a doorknob and I think it’s only been a week or two in anime-time since taking baths with Airi, Ange, and his sister and thinking nothing of it. Then they hug. Which, again, considering the heterosexual naked-time he’s shared with almost every other member of the cast, puts her just behind her own mother in terms of how far she’s actually gone with him.

But really, that goddamned creature is terrifying. And there are more of them? *shudder*



More angsty Sana.

    If you look at these series in a different light, the protagonists come off as having a really non-aggressive sociopathic, manipulative form of borderline personality.

    Or are like someone playing a game while keeping track of the affection points. I wonder about the difference.

  • m says:

    Dude, you should get into story writing for anime. Your… interpretations… are more amusing than the series.

    But, yeah, what is that thing? It’s ears are bat-like, maybe it is some kind of vampire.

  • Jack says:

    …Shingo spontaneously tells Miu that he loves her and nobody else but her.

    Well, that’s it. Done with the show, won’t bother with this episode. Did not want the Miu route. Lame. Hopefully Miu will be crushed by a rock in the next episode and Airi will pounce.

  • Anise_Punter says:

    The Tamayura cat is just as creepy as this one.

  • Anonymous says:

    That thing. That thing. What the hell is it anyway.

  • kenuran says:

    That Kyousogiga ONA came out yesterday. Are you gonna write up about it?

    • Aroduc says:

      I’ve been busy studying/working on finals and fell asleep when I tried to watch it. Probably more my fault than its since it was around 2 am, but at this point… eh.

  • FlameStrike says:

    Whoa, they’re actually going for Miu instead of Airi or the generic nobody route? That’s interesting. Of course, the earlier episodes were so boring that I already dropped it, and I only read Arudoc’s posts for their high entertainment value. I was going to consider picking this up again, but reconsidered since it doesn’t sound like it got any better. Oh well, at least the generic male protagonist actually picked someone, that’s a lot more than I can so far some idiots like Ichika. Well to be fair, this show is probably unpopular so the directer decided he didn’t need to “play it safe” since there were to fans to anger anyway.

    • Nan says:

      You underestimate the mediocrity of humanity. Knowing the Laws of Irony, this series’ sales will probably be in the seasonal top 6 or something.
