Damn man, MG2 really is the taking over of AKB by SKE.

Not that I mind.  :lol:

The acting was the worst it's been all season, although it got marginally better in part 3.

Thought Rena was overacting a bit too. The original Gekikara episode was so chilling because she appeared so carefree. Here even the laughs at the beginning felt forced, until she started making with the shoe and piano beatdown.
No idea what all that shit was with Dance either, and that felt forced too. I guess there are limits to Rena's ability to act insane after all. Somehow I feel that Dance might get some development in the future, either break out of the yankii circle or learn to properly yankii thanks to MG.

Did not see the YouranxShaku at all, but the payoff to that scene was great. Sae's panicked "aaaaaahh" was epic. Although hopefully they aren't setting up a YouranxGekikara thing, that's a huge DNW.

Otabe finally showing some dark side! Looks like she's the only one willing to deal with Nezumi, except it seems that she can do so because she might be a plotter too? Huh. I look forward to this dynamic, and if Otabe fucks up the NezumixCentre.
Return of the principal and her engrish!  :lol: She's not familiar with Otabe, so that rules out Otabe being related to the Maeda family/old gang.

Aw damn, they made the NezumixCentre too obviously mutual. Too soon! Although it looks like from the preview that Nezumi won't still be above manipulating the poor girl even if she likes her back. Looks like Nezumi might get some positive character development after all. I do hope that Team Hormone's sacrifice also plays a part though.

Duuuuuude, they made a counter-Gekikara! Geki went and got herself some sanity so obviously the solution is to get a girl with MORE INSANITY. Awesome! I suspect she'll become the season's Big Bad, with the ruthlessness of Nezumi and the psychopath personality of MG1 Gekikara. Bring it on, Kanon, bring it on. I wouldn't mind her becoming the season's dark horse. Stabbed both of the Matsuis, eh? You are not so subtle, Aki-P. Although I wonder if Centre's background will cross with Minami, or if only her encounters with kanon will drive her into become a true Centre. That seems like a cop out though, as there's still no real connection between her and Maeda, just one between her and Gekikara.

Oh snap, we'll get to see Shaku show her true yankii abilities next ep!  :shocked Hopefully she'll live up to her Queen status. At least we know she can take on Janken from the previews.

I was not expecting that ending. I seriously just sat there with my jaw hanging open for like 10 minutes.

A couple thoughts. First:

On a rewatch, I noticed two things during the theme song.

1. When Miichan (Shaku, I think?) joins the girls, Gakuran (or whatever her new name is) glances over at her and does this little happy smirk. Will Gakuran have a thing for Shaku this season?
Called it.


In the preview for next ep, it implies that Miso (name of stabbity stab stab, according to MG2 website) stabs Shibuya?!

Also, the flashback of Otabe has her in what could possibly be Maeda and Minami's old school. Minami appearance? (pls?  :cry:)


Where the hell did the Yuko's go?!

it took me a lot of restraining myself not to hurl my laptop
when i saw that kodomo stab Queen Gekikara  :angry: :angry: :angry:
And then in next epi, she'll stab Queen Shibuya as well?  :bleed eyes: :bleed eyes: :bleed eyes:
My Oshimen are dying.... :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

And dang, Matsui-Center got a dark secret now? Gekikara-vibe anyone? XD
I hope she'll avenge Geki for being stab,  :cry:
Nezumi was LOL  :rofl: finally got caught by Otabe  :twothumbs

I hope in next epi, the Yuko's will finally meet Maeda
and drag her back in MajiJyo  :twisted:
and I hope with the 2 Queens down, Torigoya and Black would
make an appearance and help.  :yep:

However~!

There could still be hope... gleaned a theory off Tumblr... maybe we just saw her pass out from massive blood loss.  I mean you SAW all the blood, right?  Gekikara could make it.  ;__;

It's kind of taken a different pace and turn from what I've expected. Somewhat bad, the show is slowly taking away characters with the main pull, for me at least. Though I can understand eliminating Gekikara from the picture, since she is the strongest. The story can't progress if she's always there to beat up whoever; and she's just a supporting character. But the last few episodes Gekikara was pretty much the main character, such a baller. :lol: They really need to establish the protagonist soon.

I think the second half of the season will see more old characters returning. I can't see Daruma not returning in glorious fashion.

I'm pretty sure Geki's not dead, just out of commission for most of the season like the rest of Rappappa.  :lol: Like boykun said, she was too AWESOME.  :wub:

But taking her out of the equation is a great way to hype up the prowess of whoever took her out. Hence why I suspect Miso will be the season's Big Bad. Letting her have her own brand of insane was also a great touch.

GEKIKARA USES MAD GIGGLE
IT'S SUPER-EFFECTIVE

MISO USES INSANE GIGGLE
CRITICAL HIT

My dislike for Kanon increased by 3 points.  :lol:

reverse for me... just like rena->gekikara in season one, i now see kanon in a different light, :lol:

as for "this season's big bad"
think of this as a "passing of the torch" deal for these 'characters', clearly "gekikara" now is someone completely different from last season, and that hole she leaves needs to be filled (lol tropes).  And Iguess they needed something to make things more 'extreme' than fist fighting and brutal violent brawling that goes on, gekikara was the height of that, weaponry is pretty much the only step higher..

eliminating characters, happens a lot in a series with multiple seasons, expected, so i'm glad new characters are getting involved (not to mention new members from the '48' family), and lesser characters getting more screentime.. (gotta please every fanboy out there).

and at what jaf said, yeah, its like a common thing they do, esp. most asian movies/dorama, they set up a relaxing, gleeful tone, making you think everything is laying low.. only to FUCK YOU IN DA FACE 5mins later. :lol:

Will they tie it back to Nezumi since she seems to be manipulating everything?

^ I was thinking the same thing while watching that making. :lol:



This episode had it all.

Action - Gekikara going all out in a rain of feathers.
Drama - Otabe x Nezumi mindhacking
Comedy - formation octupussy~ :sweatdrop:
Mystery - Center backstory
Musical - Dance... dancing... and winning the cutest underling award :heart:
Romance - !
Horror - "Noooooo!" ending

Otabe getting hit in the preview? kinda looked like Minami hitting her (from the uniform).

Nezumi is a true Sith now with the black hoodie, watch out. :D
