To Heart 2: Episode 3

Third episode!

Iincho!

Game – Manaka events
Maybe I should take those animation quirks as a fact of life already. Actually, I didn’t notice them until when I replayed for screencaps. In any case, this episode cleared out a bit of confusion I had when I played Manaka’s scenario in the game. I would also like to thank solgae for the many corrective comments in my To Heart 2 project. Please do read solgae’s comments on each character for the corrections.

To Heart 2: Episode 2

Second episode!

Geh, more animation quirks. Some good shots, but some inconsistent character animation. Nevertheless, the Tamaki episode is a healthy mix of Tamaki goodness. While I don’t share the enthusiasm of the legions of Tamaki fans, they may agree that the average animation took out some of the brilliance of an otherwise great episode. Now I get it… they want us to buy the DVD! It’ll be expected that the animation will be a lot more refined on the DVD. What a clever marketing move… although nothing may be more clever than them doing a To Heart 2: XRATED (evil grin)…

To Heart 2: Episode 1

By bluemist on October 5th, 2005

First episode!

This is one of the rare times that I will pick substance over style. I didn’t care too much about the animation quirks, because the pace of this anime is rather good. Also, the anime would seem to be treating the girls as the main focus rather than the guy. So having this from the girls’ point of view, more character development may be seen as a result. Yes, it’s like going back to the original To Heart style, nice.

Project Hiatus

By bluemist on October 1st, 2005

Ok, this is it.

Goodbye for 1 month and a half!

Because of studies, I have to be virtually inaccessible until halfway through November. Don’t worry, I’ll try to catch up on stuff afterwards, so please do visit me again by that time.

There’s a catch. Well, this is a maybe, a BIG maybe, but you may see “surprise posts” from me within my hiatus period! It’s most probable especially for the To Heart 2 anime coverage. Don’t count on it or expect it, but it is still possible. For now, if anyone will be watching the anime I think you’ll find my To Heart 2 gameplaying project an interesting cross-reference.

Thanks for all the visits, revisits, and support so far, and I hope to see you again in 6 weeks. So for now, goodbye!
