I don't see one around here and I want to share my thoughts on the latest episode but I can't find any other place to share this excitement TT_TT so decided to create a thread

DO TAKE NOTE THIS THREAD IS GONNA BE FULL OF SPOILERS!! IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCH IT, STOP RIGHT THIS INSTANT OR YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!

ok sorry for caps but need to inform you guys xD so let's begin so the most latest episode is 24~ so I will start the ball rolling. By the way, if you want to talk about the past episodes or your predictions, it should be fine too

Man when I see Rumaty took the jar(or was it a vase?) and splash the contents onto Li-ren, I was kind of shocked. But seeing Li-ren's face after being splashed with water was like...epic?! Man~his face looks so cute and funny at the same time with dripping wet hair!! Later when Li-ren ambushed Kajika and Rumaty(who was feeling guilty) was so freaking hilarious when Kajika took the grapefruit juice(which has ice) and poured it on Rumaty lol lol lol!! Very funny!!

Well Rumaty is gonna confront his brother soon wonder what's gonna happen next @_@ ok share some of your thoughts here!

ei!!!! you're right!!!
Li-ren's face was hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hahaha...

anyways, i think everyone knows that kajika would definitely end up with li-ren. what? with all those suggestive pictures of them together in the opening and ending songs... especially the new ending theme.

well, of course i wouldn't want her to end up with lumaty because they're cousins or something but I think that's okay since I like lumaty's straight forwardness for his feelings toward Kajika..

eugene on the other hand... i feel kind of pity towards him since he just wants to be like that. I guess he just wants to support kajika and make her happy. i think he feels that he's not worthy to become kajika's husband or lover for that matter because of the things he did.

i also want carl because you know they have this history between their families... it's like climbing a huge mountain for carl to ask kajika's hand in marriage... as the next head of the rosenthals that is.

don't get me wrong but i do want kajika to end up with li ren but sometimes i just think that li ren is torturing himself. i mean he's just making things complicated. he overthinks a lot of things. that's why i hate him in some way...

well there goes my opinion...

Overall I actually didn't like the animation change that much to be honest.

I liked Kajika better looking oder then what she was, becuase it kinda gave her a sense of difference, and she's not your oridinary 15-16 year old girl.

Lumati I can see having a change in his to make him seem more serious but...idk some parts he just seems to serious, plus his eyes got changed, not in color but shape...and it bothers me (is a sucker for pretty eyes). XD

Eugene and Li-Leng don't actualy have much of a difference other then a few years are taken off. And as funny as Li-leng and Lumati's faces were when they got soaked...its kinda looked...idk kidish....

Carl, same not much change...but based on what I saw for episode 25 RAW

(THIS IS NOT A SPOILER)

he kinda looked like a balloon in one shot. XD

In terms of opening and endings...I like the animation for the characters in those. Especially Lumati's shots (seriously the one in the ending had me like O___O "Woooww")

But I found the flying random ribbons and sparkles in the opening...distracting and pointless.

----------------

Ok off the animation....

I think despite the amount of time and action Lumati has had with Kajika...I don't think they will end up together...for the simple fact as;

1.) Their half cousins
2.) Lumati is still so divided with his brother and his country that not all his attention can be on Kajika like Harry wants it to be.
3.) Lumati made it a hell of a lot harder for hmself by allowing Li-Leng to go after Kajika.

Eugene I actually agree with mistressnicey on it. He loves her and woud do anything for her, but likey feels he's not fit to marry her.

So basicaly Carl and Li-Leng are the 2 most possible canidates eventhough Carl hasen't appeared much, and Li-Leng is in denial....

---------------------

Ok on topic of funny and OMG! scenes...

Water + Li_leng = Halarious

Lemonade + Ice + Lumati = Even more halarious XD

I actually enjoyed the random fantasy thing Eugene had. XD

Symbolic stuff is always good in book.

Lumati kissing Kajika....I actually spat out my drink. I mean bold move much? XD

Part of me was fangirling to (yes I am a LumatixKajika fan...despite them being half-cousins).

Now I don't mind scenes like that...just tone down the sparkles and glowy things...PLEASE.

We do not need over done Tadamu moments in this series.

....Ok I'm done now. XD

Since the series changed director it's become sorta...chaotic? Then again, it's probably cause the staff for each episode is different so the quality (skill) is different. I hope that they edit it for the better when it goes on DVD. Often times the TV quality is lower than the DVD quality.

Even though the art looked weird and reminded me of a mix between Fushigi Yuugi and Detective Conan (new director worked on both of these series), I enjoyed it. It was funny, heartwarming, romantic, and dramatic. I agree on there being a need for less sparkles even if those are the trademarks of classic shoujo

Ep.25, the characters return to the previous style, but Carl's face doesn't look as handsome as previously and Kajika does look distorted in some scenes... Li-ren looks mostly hot so I'm pleased (is Li-ren fan ). And someone FINALLY drew him looking good in a changshan like in the manga. It's all about making us see there's a hot body underneath that draping garment. Another thing I like though is the backgrounds, I think they've gotten more detailed and lush. It's one of the things I look forward to watching in the recent episodes, especially, when the characters are in a well-furnished room and there a wide variety of paintings on the wall.

Now as to the boys chances with Kajika...
Hard to say. There is the hinting in the anime ED and OP (which I loved 'cause it looks much nicer than the previous ones), but it might just be nothing but fanservice. There's still a possibility that the anime ending might be different from the manga ending. Although, I agree that Carl and Li-ren have the best chances since Mustafa doesn't seem interested in a committed relationship and Rumaty is more concerned about Raginei's welfare. As to whether it's okay for cousins to marry in this series... we'll see in the upcoming 2-3 episodes... some of us might not like it, but for certain characters in the anime with certain cultural and family backgrounds it's considered the best decision.

wow you guys focus on the art @_@ I normally watch it for the story =X this goes about how much more I need to learn(?!) It really is a shocker to see Rumaty kiss Kajika in episode 24. I didn't know he had it in him to kiss anyone hahahaha~ what's worse was he was shocked seeing Li-ren behind the scenes watching them.

So far there's only 1 comment on Quinza(lol) We all know he's doing those things just so he could 'put' Rumaty on the throne. But it's kind of bad of him to make use of Rumaty's beloved brother like that...then again, the brother deserved it for just leaving the country's matters to the ministers/surbordinates. Kind of reminds me of the Emperor's ruling in Juuni Kokuki(Twelve Kingdoms) in the Kou Kingdom.

I hate that they changed the music a bit in the opening, that's about it.

So, I thought Li-Ren face was hilarious in the water bit and the part where he saw Lumati and Kajika's kiss. I laughed so hard. I also thought it was funny how Lumati felt guilty and Li-Ren came up behind him and Kajika. I love how Kajika just dipped out after Li-Ren dumped the juice.

Like in my forum, I really can't stand Quinza, he's such a user. How could he do that to Lumati and how can Somand be such a whimp?

Okay, Episode 25 talk now... if you haven't seen it, don't read this

I kind of don't like Carl. He seems like a whimp. Sucks that he was the second to confess his love. But I do feel for him a little. His sisters are really mean. Kajika was so cool when she doused them with that water. Is it just me, or is Kajika one of the most strong and powerful female leads in a series like this.

I will agree with Oompa1992 that Kajika is most powerful female leads in anime like this. I find it refreshing cause most of the anime series the females are not that bright and seem very weak. Same old same old ...... takes it toll. As for me I want Li-Ren & Kajika I just love the pic of the ED song of the both of them. I will keep my fingers cross.
