Suzumiya Haruhi S2 - 12
Nothing really really happened in this episode I just find it entertaining how Haruhi abuses Asahina. Oh and I also enjoy seeing Haruhi get pissed off when Mikuru offered Kyon a drink and I get to see Yuki in her witch costume again. To be honest sometimes I find Haruhi's bossy attitude irritating but I still like her since I think she's just a misunderstood teenager that needs attention.
Yipee!! next episode we'll get to see more Yuki!
I really like this episode more than the previous one since it's really amusing to watch Yuki. The Mikuru Beam part was really interesting since we get to see Yuki in action. I'm really hoping that the animation would be really grand when Mikuru would fire a different kind of beam again next episode. Btw, I cringed whenever I see Yuki's burns.
In this episode Kyon was able to stand against Haruhi and that's a good thing since Haruhi is already quite irritating. This arc, we'll get to see a more assertive Kyon and a more obnoxious Haruhi and I'm really interested to see more of it get animated..............*spoiler* (specially the part when Kyon was about to hit Haruhi with his fist).
Waaa!! I miss you Tsuruya-san good thing we get to see her again. I missed her animation shorts from You Tube. Smoked Cheese~~!!!

CANAAN - 07
Holy crap Liang Qi sure is one amazing psycho. I liked her get some, get some scene in this episode and I've got to admit that Tanaka Rie is an amazing seiyuu. Also there were some flashbacks and a loli Liang Qi is really adorable. Also Liang Qi's Mii is really cute by the way. I admire her in those things but her character is quite irritating mainly because of her infatuation with Alphard and her hatred towards Canaan.
Even though Canaan spent the whole episode running, this episode is still exciting. Alphard 's plan is set in motion in this episode by infecting the world leaders with the Ua virus. Maria's been captured (again) and got beaten up by Liang Qi. And when I thought that Maria's character had grown I was disappointed in this episode because all she did was shout Canaan!! 2x or don't come I'll be fine!!. Baka, of course you're not fine.
Wow, Hakko spoke in this episode and the reason she doesn't speak is because she appears to have powers that control sound waves (?). I'm not sure about that since we are not given additional clues on what her power might be.
That was a very awesome episode. It has the right mix of political drama, action, deceit and suspense. I spent the entire episode at the edge of my seat and I kept looking at the remaining time for the episode because I don't want it to end with a cliff hanger 'cause I'll have to wait for another week to watch the next episode. I thought this episode would be spent on saving Maria and seeing Canaan in action but wow I never thought that they'll make it a race-against-time type of episode. At the beginning of the episode, Canaan did the matrix and dodge the bullets like Neo but what impressed me was when she was trying to manipulate the GPS system of the missile. Well, the episode ended in a cliff hanger but I was satisfied since they didn't decide to cut with the one where we don't know if the missile has hit the building or not. I want to watch the next episode because I don't know what will happen to Canaan, will she lose her power and had to battle Liang Qi or will she still get her powers back?
Waaaaa!! Next episode please!!

If you already hate this show then I this episode won't be able to get your loyalty back. It was just a build up episode but there are still some noteworthy things in this episode. I enjoyed the athletic festival scene at the beginning mainly because of Yuki. I also like the facial expressions of the characters in this episode they are so adorable to look at (KyoAni's moé moé kyun is really powerful this week). I also noticed in one scene, I think I saw Mio in the train.
I'm really interested in watching the animated version of The Sighs but because of the disappointing effect of the endless eight arc, I don't know how to describe it....ummm...it seems like I beggining to get tired of this show.
I'm just wondering...there's this news that this anime would be airing 28 episodes and it airs chronologically right? If that's true then how could they finish the Sighs arc with only 8 episodes left and they also have to fit in some remaining episodes of the rerun? I think they would try to fit in The Sighs in 4 episodes and then the remaining rerun (I think there is only 4 remaining: Episode00 / The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina Episode 00, Live Alive, The Day of Sagittarius, Someday in the Rain) and then we won't be able to see the disappearance to be animated. Unless they plan to air season 3 this coming fall.

The animation was above average for a love-com anime and its fine since series like this should show off in their plot than in the animation. The character design was stunning, I just love the appearance of the characters. Misaki and Enomoto were hot and sexy, Ayumi, Koyoi and Chikura are cute. Dobashi on the other hand is cool. I wish I could draw characters like that. The music is the highest point of the series since it was one of the things that was able to evoke my emotions.
Overall it was a well produced romance comedy and I could recommend it to people who love series like this. I'll leave you guys a quote from the series...
"We're in love...Of course, it doesn't go smoothly. We might make mistakes. But we'll definitely treasure our first feelings of love. These feelings will one-by-one lead us towards our futures." -Ayumi
Overall Rating : 8/10

Episode 2 was quite good, I found Yunyun's meatbun breast hilarious and the taxi driver was also funny and cool at the same time. Episode 3, it has more humor and action than the previous episode. Hakko was hot in this episode and her encounter with Minoru in the park was hilarious specially with the timing of the fountain. In this episode also, we get to see more of the relationship between Canaan and Maria and it turns out that the villains in this episode was a sympathetic character. I felt sad for Canaan since she only tried to save Maria but Maria on the other hand was frightened of her. In episode 4, we get to see Canaan past and why she have that hatred against Alphard. This episode has less action but the action scene at the end was entertaining to watch because it was well animated even though it was only short. In this episode Maria and Canaan was both depressed and thank goodness Maria got over her depression easily while Canaan she got over it during episode five. I was surprised that Maria and Canaan made up easily but that's fine so that we'll have more action next week. I'm liking Maaya Sakamoto's villainous voice btw, it's suits Alphard very well. In episode 5, I thought they were going to kill off Yunyun since in the previous episodes she was only a comedy relief. She was really hilarious in this episode since she tried to be a bad guy and she was really hilarious with that facial expression of hers. In this episode also the Borner thing was also explained and that they are being manipulated by an organization by offering them drugs that will save their lives.
(Wow that was long and nonstop... :P..)
I can't wait to watch the next episode since in the last part of the episode there was someone who send a letter to Maria and it seem to be an invitation to a party and in the preview, it seems that Alpahard would somewhat kidnap Maria. Ooohhh....can't wait..
