Yozakura Quartet – Hana no Uta – 11

After 11 episodes Lila is finally here!! “Tane mo shikake mo gozaimasen” All dat crazy siscon yandere goodness.
It’s pretty cool how they showed some of the illustrations from the vol 13 limited edition calendar as OP cards. Thinking about why they made a new anime + OVA now always bring me to the conclusion that the manga may be ending soon (as in in the next 2 years). I gotta say this makes me sad though as this adaptation really made me remember how much I like it. That’s just random speculation from my part based on past experiences though, I have actually no idea how an anime adaptation of something gets decided etc.

THEY’RE ACTUALLY DOING OVERLAPPING STORIES LIKE IN THE MANGA. FANBOYING SO MUCH RIGHT NOW.
It’s pretty incredible how they’re doing Lila’s arc, while doing scenes and stuff that time wise happened before or after her arc in the manga, in order to explain stuff to newcomers.

The “we”ll only save humans yada yada” discussion with Shiina & Shidare happens after Lila’s arc iirc. In summary everything in this episode was in the manga but happened slightly differently and at different times. Not gonna blog it every week btw. Just wanted to say this.

That was pretty good. Like I expected they explained stuff and reintroduced the characters, by changing a few things from the manga. I like how they put tons of little details about the characters for the fans like Touka getting disappointed she won’t be able to meet Akina, Ao playing with that plane (why can’t I hold all that ryo-timo style animation) or DAT YAE. Seems like we’re in for good doses of fanservice without making newcomers totally lost. Just in case, I use fanservice as in everything made to please fans there, if I want to talk about boobs I say sexual fanservice. Lila is one of my favorite characters (well actually everyone is my favorite character in YZQ) so I’m really looking forward to this animating her arc.

The eyecatches and endcard were great too. Kinda suck they didn’t make the sponsor list disappear. I didn’t find a version without them on the net so I assume there isn’t. They didn’t write who drew it either…

Anticipating Yozakura Quartet – Hana no Uta –

This is the show I’m looking forward to the most next season. I’m a huge fan of Yozakura Quartet, fan enough to buy the volumes. It’s one of my favorite shonen recently, along with stuff like Bimbougami Ga (which just ended), or Shoukoku no Altair.
