Canaan 05/06 [Orange Farm Archive]

Did someone say…LOYALTY!?

Crazy bitch.

I’m sure I have a reader who wants Alphard’s imouto as their own.  I pity you.  Alphard, too.

Like Irisviel’s character development.  It must be rather difficult to develop a mute(?) character in an anime.  Glad to see she has a sense of humour.

And a mindfsck ability.  Always a good quality in a woman. Definitely a plus.

Unlike Maria, I love the arguments these two are having.

snapshot20090813015357

OooOoO…

snapshot20090813015413

BUUUURRNNNNN!!!!!!!!!

The integration of these two into the main story is becoming one of the better parts of the series for me right now.  Again, not feeling much for the main plot.  If only Mino and Maria were the main characters rather than Maria and Canaan.  I haven’t read Jason Miao’s blog in a while, but if he’s covering Canaan I know he’s already said it – “Canaan is a poor man’s Ryougi.”

Maria on the other hand…

Gotta catch ’em all!

Trying to collect of Maria’s facial expression is my favorite Canaan mini-game by far.  I just wish Nasu wasn’t being so mean to her!  Canaan feels a bit forced at time and really fluent at others.  They’re doing an okay job but they need to figure out to mesh it all together.  You can tell Nasu is used to writing novels because she’s having a difficult time advancing the story.  From an observer’s point of view you can only really observe change by overall story and character interaction.  Without any sufficient way to present her character’s thoughts, Nasu’s story is getting to be a bit choppy.

Gotta love Canaan’s stoic expression compared to the rest of the cast.  Really adds to the atmosphere.  She doesn’t react to much unless it directly involves what she wants.  As for the Borner, don’t care too much about her.  I would say she’s not my type, but a DFC and a fang…well, still don’t like her.

Gotta give it to Nasu for her symbolism.  While a red moon may make an appropriate background for Canaan, I don’t think Maria would be the type to sleep with a bloody plushie, but I’ve been wrong before.

snapshot20090813020801

I would like to take a moment to interject and look at the irony of this statement.  Maria has been wearing the same thing for the last six episodes.  Mino at least changed his shirt.  The more you know.

snapshot20090813014534

Really.  Really?

Speaking of intermissions, what the hell, gg?  Oh wait…what’s this Reisen thing on sale?

snapshot20090813020855

pointy pointy

That being said, my questions far from end there with this series.  Maria, why are you so awesome?

snapshot20090813022046

snapshot20090813022056

Why isn’t Obama this GAR?

snapshot20090813022150

“LOVE…”

snapshot20090813022159

And why doesn’t he start taking lessons from Vash for his speeches?

snapshot20090813022529

Yes…you do need to get some.  Crazy Bitch.

And finally, why is this bitch so crazy?  She must learn the way of the Orenji…loyalty is a key which will open the gates, flooded with passion for the one you serve!  This one has drowned in her own obsession.  Kinda like me.

snapshot20090813022919

Cool story, bro.

Unlike Alphard’s imouto, this guy knows how to be a bro.  Seriously, imouto yandere dropped to bottom of my list as soon as she kicked Maria.

snapshot20090813024333

Glad to see a teensy little bit more of Siam story.  It’s the only thing about the main plot that interests me.  Between the back/side stories and animation of Canaan, I think it’ll become an entertaining show.  While it is good, I’m no where near on the edge of my seat waiting for the next episode to come out – let alone blog it.  Lets hope the series takes a more interesting turn.  Otherwise I may just make a Maria appreciation post and call this series quits (from blogging, not watching – it’s still decent).  Too much other good stuff this season.

    While I disagree with the basic gist of your comment (it’s clearly the best show this season – maybe it’s mostly for us girls? HMM. No, maybe not, it’s probably just that I’m into potential yuri girls with guns) I clearly agree with your sentiment voiced here:

    Why isn’t Obama this GAR?

    Why indeed? WHY?

    Give it up, Komi, even Japanese Wikipedia says he’s a guy.

    It’s a pen name. It means nothing. There was no Tsukihime anime.

    @Lissy Not sure if this is the best show this season. If this plot falls to pieces, it’ll merely come out a beautiful mess.

    That said, it’s a delicious season for teh yureez. With a slash reading of CANAAN, I’m watching FIVE yuri-ish series (to be fair, Saki’s on holdover from last season).

    I’d have to agree with Kom that Liang Qi is hella annoying. She’s the only real black mark on the series to this point.

    Patches! Where did you disappear to during c76? :3

  7. August 27, 2009 at 3:21 PM

    I went to Kentucky to rock climb with some friends. It was cheaper than going to Japan for C76… I’ll sift through all of your material when I get caught up with work/life/etc. Looks like you had a blast, tho’.
