The bar brawl is generally a great scene, but Tom’s the highlight. While Icchan unleashes some very competent karate, Tom’s contribution includes getting hit on the head with a tray by Saotome Sachi. Who was trying to rescue Tom from getting strangled by a rival soldier. Because Icchan could not interfere due to Bro Code and thus only cheered from the sidelines.
Tom’s good any day, but her comedic skills are honestly brilliant. I so wish either version of Odd Couple ended up on DVD!
Takako is seriously pretty in this show. And very intense, which makes for both a good confrontation with Thierry and a brilliant trio song.
(Except making Icchan do the same moves that are echoed a moment later by Tom and Takako makes it clear who can lift their leg where. Ah, my darling non-dancer…)
Things explode and freedom fighters are to blame. Good thing Saotome Sachi’s at hand to soothe the waters a bit and push Laila into Thierry’s arms. (I love the sets, so very spare and simple, with lighting utilised effectively.)
and then sometimes you get Lea Salonga singing Let It Go…
Raise your hand if you’ve joined a fandom because you saw it on Tumblr.
Raise your hand if you’ve completely avoided things because of the fandom you saw on tumblr
Raise your hand if you know enough about a fandom to be in it because of tumblr, but haven’t actually watched the show/read the book/etc.
This show sealed the IchiroHana combi for me. It’s the physical contact and trust. (And in the first cap, Laila got a splinter in her hand, which leads to the first non-dancing contact, which as evidenced leads to Ohana melting into Icchan’s arms.)
Finally dug up Battlefield for the Two of Us again, and forgot I was so close to this lovely scene. Saotome Sachi sings, later joined by Katsuragi Nanaho (honestly, best mini-combi, and their voices work so well for this kind of Balkan song) while others dance with candles in their hands…
