「2週目の時間」 (Nishuume no Jikan)
“Round Two Time”
Damn, that wasn’t what I was expecting. Well, I sort of saw it coming, but it doesn’t make it any less scarier!
Oh, My, God. After last week’s debacle, I wasn’t sure what our beloved Bitch-sensei was going to do to make it up to her students. I mean, deceiving them and nearly killing them is a pretty serious offense no matter how you try to spin the facts afterwards. Amazingly, she somehow came back this week not only in perfect form, but as someone who totally deserves the title of Sensei. With her amazingly stylish “normal” people clothes and a reworked attitude there was little to call bitch this week. If anything, I hope that it stays like this since I’m really liking this new Irina.
On a side note, there was a slight update to the opening sequence this week. From what I caught, the Shinigami is facing us with his real face and Irina is IN HER NEW CLOTHING AND STARING STRAIGHT INTO KARASUMA-SENSEI’S EYES. Boy, there’s little I wouldn’t do to see a proper Irina x Karasuma happen…
Okay, first off, holy shit. I try to avoid using such language in my posts, but I think this is one of the rare moments where it’s a pretty accurate description of both my feelings and what happened. Because last I checked, it wasn’t normal to repeatedly pound your child’s head into a table while yelling in excess of 150 or so decibels. Nor is it cool to push your unlived dreams and desires onto your next of kin, especially if it’s solely because they’re your kids! Man, it’s unbelievable the amount of stress and headaches (literally) Nagisa has probably endured throughout his life. But, if we’re being real here, I’d probably do the same thing if I were in his place. Not only because it’d be for the sake of my parents, the people who brought me into this world and cared for me; but out of the fear of bringing out such a terrifying beast.
Luckily, with a little help from Koro-sensei and a random assassin, it looks like Nagisa’s mom has eased up a little when it comes to controlling her baby boy. Hopefully we’ll get a chance to take another peek into Nagisa’s life and the positive changes that come from both a parent and their children growing up together. Hopefully.
Boy, if the show is ready to reveal why Nagisa looks like he does, I hope that means it’s ready to finally give us some information on Koro-sensei. Real, concrete facts about things like his past or just why he’s a giant yellow octopus. With the halfway point coming close each week, hopefully the story kicks it up a few notches since I’ve heard there’s a lot more material to cover. Anyways, I’ll catch you guys next week with a much quicker post. See you!
P.S. #Zootopia was freaking amazing.
