All my flailing impressions...
Ryoma looks so tall and grown up! Now Tezuka won't get arrested every other time they are out on a date.
Looking at the seats on the bus, I am disappointed Fuji and Kaidoh are not sitting together. No one is sitting with Kaidoh, as a matter of fact, which is probably his first choice, even if it's not ours. :(
But someone at least was wishing he could sit with Kaidoh...
They still can't keep their hands off each other. ♥
On arriving at camp, they are bullied by high schoolers into knocking over cans with tennis balls while coaches perv on them through security cameras.
WHERE IS THE FEED FOR THOSE CAMERAS?!? THERE MUST BE A PAY SITE FOR THEM. I HAVE MY CREDIT CARD OUT NOW.
"Ii data!" Inui, I want to kiss your pretty cheek!
And Kaidoh hissed! I have missed the hiss! And the Boomerang Snake! And everything about you, Kaidoh Kaoru!
Momo moons over his beloved missing Echizen which prompts Kaidoh to a jealous head toss and snort. So, which one is he jealous of?
Our heroes are not the only middle schoolers at the camp!
I was sorry, though, that they missed my favourite panel from the manga.
Special friends are reunited! ♥
Inui also has acquired a date. A Data Date!
Tezuka and Ryoma have a subdued greeting, as is appropriate to their deeply passionate but somewhat forbidden love. Clearly Tezuka knew all along that Ryoma was going to be there. ♥
ALL. THE. BALLS.
And so much megane love!!! But...
I think this is why there is so little InuKai in Shin Tenipuri. :( :( :( Even all the MomoKai and Data Pair cannot heal my aching heart.
Just how many Sasabes are there?
THE HOLY GRAIL! RANDOM HIGH-SCHOOLER DIALOGUE VOICED BY KIYASU KOHEI!!!
Even the coaches are shipping Tango Pair. ♥
I was hoping Irie would be a little hotter in the anime; he's not doing it for me at all. :(
Tokugawa, on the other hand...
Watch out, Tezuka, he's going to steal your boyfriend away.
All in all, yay! I think the anime will be easier to follow than the manga in terms of keeping track of characters and following all the crazy matches. And if we're lucky, they'll slide in even more character-based crack.
OH MY SHOW NEVER LEAVE ME AGAIN!!! COUNTING THE MINUTES UNTIL NEXT WEEK!!!
Also, there is dancing over the end credits.
