Seven years ago, when Yuuichi had to return home because winter break was ending, he made a promise to Ayu that he’d come play again the next year.
On his way to school, Yuuichi gets intentionally bumped into by Shiori because she was happy to see him.
Yuuichi is greeted back home by Ayu, who notices that he’s not looking so well.
When Yuuichi and Ayu visit this hospital, Sayuri explains that she heard everything from Mai.
After telling Yuuichi to remember their training, Mai attacks the demon in front of her.
During breakfast, Yuuichi has on his mind what Mai said about the demons being after him, though his attention is soon turned to Ayu commenting on the jams that Akiko made.
The morning after the dance festival, Nayuki asks Yuuichi if something happened because he’s been acting strange ever since he got back, but he tells her that it’s just her imagination.
Come this time of year, most anime series take a week or two break (last year was no different). To clear up any lingering schedule uncertainties that you may have, here is a table of what’s airing and what’s not for shows that I’m currently blogging.
|Series||This Week (12/25 to 12/31)||Next Week (1/1 to 1/7)||Following Week (1/8 to 1/14)|
|Pumpkin Scissors||Episode 13 on Monday||No Episode||Episode 14 on Monday|
|D.Gray-man||Episode 13 on Tuesday||No Episode||Episode 14 on Tuesday|
|DEATH NOTE||Episode 12 on Tuesday||No Episode||Episode 13 on Tuesday|
|Negima!?||Episode 13 on Wednesday||Episode 14 on Thursday||Episode 15 on Wednesday|
|Bleach||No Episode||Episode 109 on Thursday||Episode 110 on Wednesday|
|Soukou no Strain||No Episode||No Episode||Episode 10 on Wednesday|
|Kanon||Episode 13 on Thursday||Episode 14 on Thursday||Episode 15 on Thursday|
|CODE GEASS||No Episode||Episode 12 on Thursday||Episode 13 on Thursday|
|Ayakashi Ayashi||No Episode||Episode 13 on Saturday||Episode 14 on Saturday|
Please make particular note that Negima!? and Bleach will be airing episodes on Thursday, January 4th. They are being preempted from their normal Wednesday spots on January 3rd by an Enka New Year’s Special and then the Japan vs. Mexico Boxing Grand Prix. Unfortunately, this means that that particular Thursday will be completely hellish for me since it’ll be four shows on one day (maybe even five if I end up watching Saint October). And on that note, you can probably expect the Winter 2007 Shows Preview to go up sometime later this week.
Seven years ago, Ayu had been admiring a doll in a UFO catcher, so Yuuichi tried to get it for her.
With Makoto gone, Akiko, Yuuichi, and Nayuki plan to leave her room as it is.
