We still haven't heard anything back about our thoughts on the new format, so we're still on vacation. Well, technically, we were planning to take today off anyway, but now it looks like our vacation might be extended to Monday at the least. It was kind of funny, because Mom took us to the FedEx store today, but she was really super busy, so she she got a little upset when we got stuck in traffic. So we said if there's anything we can do to help, we're not doing anything for a while, and despite her not really paying attention to our ongoing dialogue, she caught that much and got really worried. And we're like, "No, that doesn't mean we're going to starve; it just means we're not doing anything for a couple of days."
So instead we watched more Kaleido Star. I was thinking I wouldn't type anything about it again today, since I just typed about it yesterday, and it's all spoilery so no one's going to read anything about it anyway, but these episodes were just too awesome not to talk about.
It seems completely illogical to me that only a true devil can perfect the angel stunt thingie. It just doesn't make sense. When Alain said that only a true devil could perfect it, I was like, "Nuh-uh, Yuri taught Sora how to do it, and he's super awesome now!" But then he came back to Kaleido Stage. Athena: And then he was like, "Hey, remember how I used to be evil? I'm still pretty good at that."
It was way scary! He's good at turning the evil on and off. And the way he provoked Leon into that fight. We're like, "Wow, he really is pure evil." But then he was all like, "It's better that Leon kill me," and we're like, "Oh, good, he hasn't lapsed back into evilness." We weren't worried that Leon would actually kill him, because we knew Sora would stop them. But dude, a real sword fight on circus equipment between the two best acrobats in the world (or at least in the series)? You can't get much cooler than that.
I suspected Yuri had a hand in Sophie's death, because of the way he talked to Sora about the circus festival and because he was evil back then. And when he confessed, I was like, "Oh, so actually it's Yuri that turns angels into dust." Stupid jerk. But now he's super awesome, which just goes to show the power of repentance. Did I mention that yesterday? Oh well, it's still awesome.
And next they're going to perform Swan Lake. We suspected they were mixing in Princess Tutu elements when the guy who stole the angel technique was named Mute, and they mentioned ballerinas in the same episode. And then when they did Romeo & Juliet, it looked like they stole the crow minions. But now I think it's official.
The bank heist episode was made of awesome. That is all.
I can't wait to watch the last DVD! But we're not going to do it right now anyway, so I guess I can. We just can't watch too many DVDs in a day or we start to lose our minds. The only problem is that it's the weekend, so we don't know if we'll get the TV tomorrow, alas. Ah well, waiting is half the fun, right?
In the meantime, Tamaki's new song is one of our new favorites! You can tell how much Miyano-kun loves singing. It kinda makes you want to... well, be like Sora (from Kaleido Star, though Kingdom Hearts Sora is worth being like as well), I guess. And put on a show that will make everyone happy.
Today I'm thankful for Kanau Nara, awesome sword fights, Aasif Mandvi using the term "pas de deux" on the Daily Show two nights ago, knowing what "pas de deux" means, and the special mix of Mata Ashita.
