Excellent, one more for the collection.  And finally, this time for real, I think they’re going to be fulfilling my absolute favorite loose end.  I’m counting on you Sunrise, don’t screw this one up.

Pool episode!  There may or may not be TL notes later when I don’t have to sleep for work, and there may or may not be a ton more images at some point.  God, Sunrise is pretty much hitting up every single loose thread in the series in this last run.  I have no doubt that it’ll be a perfect ending leading into the next season.

Alice in Wonderland episode!  Holy crap this is great!  Also, you may not know this (I actually forgot it myself), but the March Hare’s friend is not once referred to as the “Mad Hatter” in Lewis Carol’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.  Had to go back and fix at least one of those.

More images after the break (minor spoilers).

S-So moe I'm gonna die!

S-So moe I’m gonna die!

Woo, down to the last ten episodes! And finally, something I’ve been waiting for for a while has finally come back. Funnily enough, the characters acknowledge that it was forgotten about for a while.

As for notes, I could write about what daifuku and senbe are, but that’s not terribly important. And if you’ve been watching anime for any amount of time, you’re probably already aware of the Obon Festival and how they force little girls to sing and dance to bring back the dead (or something). Well, you get the point. Enjoy your lolis.

What of it?

What of it?

So like I said, delays this week brought to you by Japan, planes, and soul crushing goodness.  By the way, the thing that Orihime keeps bringing up, 嗣子の子落とし(shishi no ko otoshi), literally means “lion-child dropping”.  Wish we had something closer in English. Next episode hopefully on time.
