And with that post out of the way...

Furuba should have just one chapter left. Everyone's talking about the long-awaited chapter 130...it's the chapter where everyone is freed. And...we still don't know what triggered the release of Kureno, Momoji and Hiro...even though the previous chapter had an after-statement with something like "when someone who wasn't meant to be loved is loved" (I'm going from memory, since I can't access the chapter atm), that's meant to be an addition by the editor, and it frankly doesn't fit with the release of Kureno or Hiro, at least, not really. I'm inclined to think that there was no pattern - after all that speculation, it just wasn't important, and it certainly wasn't important for the order of release in chapter 130.

The order - or so it would seem, since they were probably all released at around the same time, with two exceptions - was Kyou, Ayame, Ritsu, Kisa, Kagura, Rin and Haru, Hatori, Shigure and finally Yuki. Most fans on FG are claiming that Kyou was the trigger for this final release, with the resolution of the feelings between him and Tohru being the determining factor, but, looking at the scans, that doesn't seem quite right. I believe that Akito released them, though I'm not too sure about the curse itself weakened enough for Kyou to slip out first, given that the timing seems a little bit too perfect. But chapter 130 clearly shows Akito making the decision to let it all go, to farewell all of the Jyuunishi, to begin living as a human being. And Yuki is clearly the last. Whilst Yuki is compassionate, and clearly didn't completely turn his back on Akito even though he clearly made a decision to live his own life, surely that didn't warrant those final words (君が最後 だね; 遠い遠い 約束を 守ってくれて    ありがとう). What exactly is the role of the mouse/rat amongst the Chinese zodiac?

Anyways, just six days or thereabouts, and another series will be over. Will Takaya-sensei give us a sweet epilogue?

Speaking of epilogues, the SDK one is pretty cute. No real dialogue, Hotaru being his usual amusing self, literally looking EVERYWHERE for Kyo, Tokito still hanging around Akira, who gets trashed by Kyo yet again, Yukimura his old charming self, despite his age, and Sasuke...mmm...


And finally, Ishida Akira has gone blond @_@...

    I'm sure anyone and everyone has said it already, but I can't help joining in. This week's Naruto chapter, #571, was AWESOME!!…

  • Is this where I stop reading Bleach?

    "You...disappeared without even leaving a memento for me, that part of you is what I hated about you, but.. if you had left a memento…

  • Back briefly...only to, er, confirm a hiatus...

    Temporary, I think. Before, I was too busy packing (I sent 8 boxes!), now I'm too busy traveling. So yeah, a certain drama CD translation…
