It's not easy being a fangirl

Shugo Chara!! (it has two exclamation points in the title once you get to episode... 52?) is driving us crazy!!! We finished Kieli pretty early on, so we decided we had time to watch some Shugo Chara! (it only had one exclamation point as of the last episode we'd seen) before working on costumes, and they went and had a recap episode!!! And then! THEN!! they had another one! Two recap episodes in a row! We have a harder time watching recap episodes than we do watching reruns. I'm not sure why. Athena says it's about context. And we'd dealt with two recap episodes in a row before (I think Gundam Seed Destiny went through an entire recap phase, and wow Cluster Edge), but that doesn't make it any easier. Especially when the new opening sequence keeps taunting us with the return of the character we'd been waiting through fourteen episodes of filler for the return of. And that didn't seem to make grammatical sense, but... oh well.

And so instead of working on costumes, we ended up watching five episodes of Shugo Chara!!, as opposed to the two we had originally planned. We did work on costumes a little tiny bit though. I made Lizvan's undershirt! And Athena ran tests for experimental costume elements.

And instead of working on costumes after posting, we're going back to Kingdom Hearts. Collapse )

Today I'm thankful for Nagihiko's return, fun character association games, having time to watch Shugo Chara!! today, getting our first character badge that's not an X egg, and that character being Daichi. Our second character was Yoru, for which I'm also thankful, because Yoru is the cutest little thing ever.
