I decided to re-watch epsiode 1. Mostly because I just really, really wanted to see it again for some reason. Starting a few hours after I saw it the first time. The only reason I held off this long was to watch all of my other shows for the first time first. I almost never re-watch shows and I haven't even gotten around to re-watching some of my absolute favorites like OreImo and Madoka Magica yet (though the I plan to get around to the latter soon). So the fact that I'm re-watching this before the second episode even airs says a lot.
I also felt like I missed some things, like important tidbits didn't register, in my first viewing. I saw comments about things (mainly the family details) I didn't really remember. Probably because it was in the first moments of the show when I had not yet separated everyone out in my head and was just trying to get names down.
Hmmm, Yui has one hand covering her crotch when she wakes up. I'm not quite sure if she's just sitting that way for no particular reason.... or if she's checking to see if she still has a package down there. I'm guessing its the former and it doesn't really look like she's feeling for anything, but considering the situation, I can't help but wonder.
I like the chalkboard comments behind the characters in the OP.
Taichi: class 1-3, Wrestling fanboy, stuff about having fun and laughing more... Rice? Bread? likes imouto
Iori: class 1-3, won't do anything dirty, number 1 beauty, best smile, [s]please go out with me[/s], wants to eat curry
Himeko: class 1-3, scary, sorry, you need to drink more milk, Curry Nabe
Yui: class 1-1, selfish, "the entire world", let's get married, let's go out, bad idea!!, lots of variations of "I love you"
Aoki: class 1-1, I want to eat curry, don't give up, stuff about homework and not giving up
So Taichi, Inori and Himeko are in one class and Yui and Aoki are in another. The board comments are clearly a mix of comments by them, about them, and said about them or to them by other people. They all have something about food they want to eat.
I'm watching the Doki-Chihiro version this time, just to see what interesting differences there might be. The line about Iori choosing her club is one. The first part about too many clubs is essentially the same. But the second part, instead of something like "it would be more interesting to leave it to chance", its "won't it bring me surprises and touching encounters if I just leave it to fate?"
Why do I feel like I'm seeing Taichi talk about his ideas and Himeko telling him to shut it for the first time?
"I'll charge you 120 yen for a peak." I like CR's shorter, to the point version a bit better. Iori is awesome either way.
Keeheeheehee. Oh god, that giggle. *dies*
We have a lack of dangerous and erotic topics! Then Iori tells Himeko why she's such a better choice for the one to strip. This is one of the greatest scenes ever made. Not just because the dialogue itself is amusing, but because of how Toyosaki Aki says them.
"I would strip you both." That's a little different. I thought maybe this version worded it better to go with the title Iori suggests for the article to incriminate him.... but this version titles it "asks
two female club members to strip." I'm pretty sure CR had him just say something about wanting to see both of them but had the article title make it sound like he actually stripped them himself, and then Doki-Chihiro does the exact opposite.
Love Iori's face when Himeko karate chops Aoki.
Just remembered I wanted to get a bunch of screencaps of Iori in this viewing. Which means I need to rewatch that Iori-Inaba-Sensual scene again. Poor me. *cough*
"Iori, that pervert keeps saying disgusting things to me. *throws self on Iori*" Yep, straight out of K-On! I've seen that show's Yui do exactly the same thing (for different reasons, obviously) to Azusa, and Azunyan looked *exactly* like Iori does here. More importantly, Iori sure enjoys comforting girls as they run fleeing from potential heterosexuality....
I'm really impressed at how they did the body-switch scene. That slow pan-around, the look on Not!Iori's face, the music.... and then the change in music as Taichi realizes the.... benefits
of this strange situation.
Then Lesbian arrives. Worth noting that she's the first character to appear after the main group on the character page.
Looks like she should be a decently significant character.
Iori sure knows how to handle Fujishima. And is not the least bit concerned at Fujishima's blatantly sexual interest in her body.
Iori's sad-looking face when Taichi is in her body at the table amuses me greatly. And then a very un-Iori-like smirk when Himeko says his name.
Poor Taichi, he's getting that "you're a really pathetic little boy" look from his own body.
I must know what Himeko said to Iori. ;_;
Taichi's imouto reminds me of Mikan.
This certainly isn't a KyoAni level show visually, but the show does a great job with the characters little motions and quirks. Its especially important for the body-swapping but the characters just seem.... more alive than average.
