Amagami SS Plus

Tachibana you douchebag; you've fallen for the oldest trick in the book. But hey, this is Tachibana we're talking about here: chances are, his brain is in his wang. I won't take this show seriously; why would I when the previous season has taught me that this show's pretty putty? All I want to see more is Morishima bimboness and Takahashi-sensei. Especially the latter.

Hello Amagami SS, we meet again. The aesthetics look great, just like its prequel. Unfortunately, the first episode was quite painful to watch - I keep reminding myself to stop taking the show seriously, yet my subconscious always seem to betray me. The school council elections are serious business as usual, and the plot still feels forced and predictable as it can get. I mean really, I'd much prefer something that's based on the characters' interactions rather than plot-driven with half-assed attempts at drama. Sure, given that Tachibana has a charisma of a cardboard it's still probably going to be boring as hell, but at least that's a less painful way to live through the episode. And this is only Ayatsuji, who had one of the more tolerable arcs in the prequel...

...God help me when we get to Sae's arc.

Ep 1

How you describe Amagami?  It's like, so ****ing pretty.  Those character designs.  Oh.  It's kinda like mental fapping.

I mean, we can poke all sorts of holes through the plot, and the ridiculousness of the electioneering going on here.  I particularly like when they propose perfectly reasonable responses to Kurosawa... and then they go and don't[ do those things.  But that's not what this show is about.  It's all about the cocktease... the very faintly obscured erotic situations like the one where Junichi got Ayatsuji to do a very arousing photo shoot.  I mean, let's face it, there's no way Junichi could conduct himself sensibly during an election... all he thinks about are boobs.

So yeah, don't take it seriously.  It's not meant to be taken seriously.

I found myself bored and decided just to go watch this. My thoughts were: "Season 1 wasn't that bad/stupid/awkward right?"
I'm once again surprised how wrong this show feels, tachibana getting ordered around like a lapdog again, and the spineless wimp doesn't do shit.
It's like watching School days, without the cool gory ending...

Y'know what?  This one episode was better than the entire first season combined.  Not sure why, maybe it's the lack of focusing on Tachibana being a fetishist and actually giving Ayatsuji something to do that doesn't necessarily require her boyfriend's help.  Hell, if the worst thing Tachibana did in this episode is come up with a poster idea for the campaign, I think we're doing ok.  Sure, he tried to turn it into a "pretend erotic photo shoot", but that's probably one of the more normal things he's done.  Hormonal teenage boy + camera + good looking chick following your instructions?  Any kid, somewhere along that line, would slip in a random "okay, take off your top" comment... y'know just to see if it might work.  You could always quickly play it off as a joke.  Then again, she might go along with it.  You never know until you ask.

Good news: Good to see this series getting a sequel. Some main heroines didn't have that good ending especially Rihoko.

Bad news: Stupid decision to put epilogues on both Tsukasa and Haruka in the 1st season. They could've been put down here in this sequel.

Nothing new with this sequel after all... except with Junichi's stupidity.

Aww man, had Ayatsuji kicked Tachibana in the balls, it would've been epic. Too bad: Aya's too smart (well, it's not that; it's just that Tachibana's the one who's dumb) to blame him for that. He's an idiot, after all.

Have to say, the kiss scene in the bathroom was pretty sweet.

It could be that I just like Ayatsuji more than some of the other girls, but I thought this was an okay episode, too.  Not much for the tension.  I mean, the results were too damned predictable and Tachibana was a useles plot device, so I never thought there was really any substance to the Ayatsuji v. Kurosawa thing.  Humorous that the whole thing did indeed end up being a battle between women for a man instead of about politics.  But only humorous in a derpy kind of way.

For a while there, I swear they ****ed.  "Just one kiss is enough for you?" is kind of a rather suggestive phrase.  Toss in the "up late" thing and Tachibana's reactions to Rihoko's prodding questions and... well... I just figured things was obvious.  Of course they didn't, and probably never will, because for some reason nobody can get laid in these kinds of shows.  That would upset the legions of faggot fans who worship their 2D waifus.  I don't know why they just don't declare that the MC is a eunich.  Might save me some time wondering about this crap and would save all those nerds' stomachs from ulcers.

Oh great, next sequence is the Friend Zoned Hollywood Ugly Girl.  Maybe the'll make up for that ****ing stupid ending before.  Might be the only reason to actually watch this second series:  justice for Rihoko.

YES!  YES YES YES!  This is what I missed!  This is the feeling!  This is what Amagami SS is all about!

The PAIN is back!

Oh Junichi!  You pathetic waste of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and other elements!  Your presence in this episode was barely required!  But while you're here, would you be a dear and do something perverted for the crowd?  That's my boy!  Yes, we've all known that, in every arc, you're just one fleshy bag of raging hormones, quick to bust out any fetish you can think of, but we did not know that you were such a deviant at a young age!  My goodness, this means that playing doctor would be beneath you as too "mainstream".

So perhaps I was enjoying that last segment a bit too much.  Why you ask?  WHY?!  Because NTR is, sometimes, well.... JUST DESSERTS...!  Oh Rihoko, why didn't you accept that young man's penis right there in front of Junichi?  The tears would have been glorious!  Friend zoning you in the first series gave you all the ammunition in the world to wear your slutty garb and get rammed by some other man.  Well, boy.  You know what I mean!  Ample plot device is what we should call him!  He became my hero in a matter of seconds!

But we all know how this is going to break out.  The next episode will be all about jealousy and whatnot and Junichi will eventually find out that Rihoko's Hollywood Ugliness is still hotter than half the universe's real life.  Dare I say it but perhaps the creative minds will fix their mistake?  Maybe!  I still like the idea of Rihoko doing some other guy in a back alley somewhere.  That's just awesome!

DOUJINS!  BRING ON THE DOUJINS!  MAKE IT HAPPEN JAPAN!

...okay, so why was Junichi disappointed to lose to Rihoko in chest size back when they were kids? I know that he wanted to check out her measurement because he was "curious" (right?) but, what, he wanted to have man-boobs in order to win it? That's disturbingly wrong. Or maybe he's not just dumb; he's been dumb all his life.

OH JUNICHI~

Why is Junichi so MAN in the Rihoko arc, but a dumbass in others? I know how people behave differently around others, but there's a big difference between the Junichi who talks and acts normally, and the Junichi who thinks of perverted stuff in the most random of moments. But I have to say: the ending there is pretty sweet. Hence, I think the Rihoko arc is the best not because it's well-written but but only because it's the most realistic and least anal when compared to other arcs.

Oh I can imagine people going crazy when Miya went sleepwalking and almost used Junichi's bedroom as the toilet. Her antics never fail to entertain.

We must have watched different episodes because I thought that sucked.  As far as romance goes, it was just so unremarkable.  Childhood friends getting together?  Big deal.  There wasn't anything else to the episode other than that.

Miya was the only entertaining thing about this episode, so her presence was like a blessing.

Edit: Oh yeah, and the other thing, Junichi only made a move because he thought Rihiko was going to be NTR'd.  That doesn't exactly make him a noble romantic.

That was a pretty damn severe case of sleepwalking if you ask me.

About the episode itself, I didn't see much happening other than Rihoko making food for Junchi & Miya, the 'romantically' (?) awkward moments, the ending... and the obligatory Morishima cameo. Sure, Junichi is a tad more tolerable and Rihoko's arc is generally less cringeworthy than the others', but everything else seemed to be either too irrelevant and/or unmemorable for me to remember.

Ep 5

Holy shit. That might have been the worst episode of Amagami ever.  That was just infuriatingly inane, stupid and cringeworthy on some many levels.

The lullaby scene was so embarrassingly cringeworthy, my brain almost collapsed on itself.  Then there was the horribly contrived stupidity that lead to Junichi having to go to cram school camp, followed by the scene where he was taken away in a van.  Because that's what every cram school does in Japan, right.

As for all the stuff about Ai being lonely... well, who cares?  It pretty much fell into the background compared with all the stupidity that was taking place around her.  Oh yeah, the swim club scene was pretty bad too.

Truth be told, I have never seen someone giving another a comfy sleep like that. Worse, why was Tachibana in the infirmary in the first place?

Yah huh, Tachibana got kidnapped by the school for the crime of bombing his mock exam simply because his answers were off by a row (whatever that means). And this came in the middle of a dramatic section. LOL or flip table?

Why on earth is Kaoru next?  I thought it was supposed to be Sae's turn.

Ep 6

Well, the romance stuff was boring and vapid as batshit, to the surprise of no one, but Miya dry humped Sae, so that kinda makes up for everything.  That awkward moments where Umehara tried to ask his teacher out was pretty good too.

Oh yeah, cram school secret detectives.  **** that shit!

So... let me get this straight:

He managed to bag Nanasaki, naked, in a hot spring, but didn't **** her.  And they still haven't ****ed since, a year later.

Where's my table?  I've gotta flip a ****ing table.  What?  Cram School Cops?  No, THAT is totally believable.  Not ****ing a hot chick you've been in love with and dating for a long time?  NOPE.

The way the episode flowed.  More specifically, the way THEY flowed.  There's a certain amount of embarrassment and discomfort that goes away when you're truly intimate with someone.  These two are acting like a freshly thrown together pairing.  If they've ****ed, they're the weirdest non-virgins I've ever seen.

I should clarify, I mean the way they've been acting in both episodes.  It was arguably worse in episode 5, I just didn't comment on it.

Okay, two scenes caught my attention:

Takahashi-sensei, with or without her blazer, is beautiful to my eyes. Give her an arc already, goddamn it.

Thankfully this ep wasn't as table-flipworthy as Ai's arc, although it did have its share of moments (i.e. anything involving that bus tour) nonetheless. I'm quite surprised that Morishima didn't make a cameo this time.

Something off-topic: the scene where Tanaka was eating that watermelon reminded me of that one YouTube video I saw via Twitter...

Once again... how the hell can someone date someone so long without having sex with them?  Again, S-K, I'm fairly sure they haven't boned.  Just no way people could act like that after being intimate.  No way. 

Now, I don't want to get into no "slut" conversations, but of all the girls, she seemed like the one most willing to frolic betwixt the bedsheets.  Hell, we don't call her "sex hair" for nothing.  Even if it was just her "broness" that led her there, I could understand it.  Not saying I'd ever want to **** Junichi either, but I'd understand.  So once again, where's my table to be flipped?

I don't know if the director was trying to make a social comment or not with the "punishment" game scene, but if he was, well done.  Apparently, all Japan is full of voyeuristic perverts who want to watch a young couple making out hardcore.  Middle aged men, young women... everybody on that bus was tuning in when things went potentially softcore porn.  Naturally, when they were all caught, and disappointed, they retreated as if nothing had happened, but they can't forget that they were all willing to engage in debauchery.  Ha ha, Japan.  ****ing perverts.

Now this I agree with.  There's no way he didn't bonk Ai at the hot springs, but in this episode I think they made it quite clear that it hasn't happened yet with Kaoru.  I think if you kinda read between the lines the excuse is they haven't found an opportunity to be alone together.  But they're both obviously so ****ing horny.  Twice they've put on a very titillating show in full view of a voyeuristic public.  Three times if you count the hero stage show.  I mean, grinding while drawing art.  I think I have a new sexual fetish.

Ep 9

Guilty Crown wishes it was this dumb.  This was like a Mike Judge movie except without the one guy with normal intelligence.  (Apologies to whoever I just stole that joke from, I can't remember who made it first).

You know what gave me the most entertainment while watching this episode?  Browsing /a/ in the background.  That was where I found this image macro which sufficiently summarizes my feelings about this ep.

My thoughts about this episode and the characters in general:


Why did I ever choose to watch this anime? Time to brace myself for the next one...

Yep.  Virgins.

Yes, that's the only thing I got out of this episode.  Why do you ask?

Can't disagree.  Most awkward teenage kiss ever.

Wouldn't it be nice if Sae's being voiced by say, Kanazawa Hana? A WHOLE LOT NICER.

And oh Junichi, why are you always a sap to Miya's trolling...?

Ep 11

Haruka would survive the zombie apocalypse.  They'd lose interest in her when they realize that she has no brains.

Ugh.  The wedding scene was one the most cringe-worthy moments in this entire series, and that's saying a lot.  But geez, did anyone stop to think about Junichi in all this forced proposal shit?  I mean, it's rare when I sympathize with Junichi, but no teenager should be pressured to propose just because his girlfriend has a family tradition.  He didn't sign up for that.

Morishima Lovely Haruka.
Morishima Sexy Jessica.

I'm going to punch their next baby, so it can be "Morishima Ugly Something".  Nothing wrong with having an adjective for a middle name.  Of course, someone needs to remind these morons that the cute naming convention, which would read fine in Japanese styling (as printed above) would look stupid as hell in Western styling.  Haruka Lovely Morishima doesn't quite have the same impact, since the intent is to "describe" Haruka herself, not her family.  Thus, how'd they even come up with that shit?

By the by, this episode has taught me something (and no I wont be using this for my WILTW article):  one Haruka is bad enough.  Two is the apocalypse.  I've heard of people looking like each other, but usually it's just a passing resemblance.  Someone having the same hairstyle, body style, face, AND personality is too much.  Just too much.

Name your baby "Sexy".  Nothing wrong with that.

Never mind annoying, it was ****ing lazy writing to basically introduce a clone of Haruka to be a plot device.  Can't even come up with an original character.

Actually, I'm not sure if it's necessarily lazy writing. What I think is, the writers are just being trolls: "What if we make a Caucasian version of Haruka..."

I’m sorry, but you can’t compare the pile of dog poop called Guilty Crown with Amagami SS. Junichi is just perverted like any guy his age would be. I don’t see anything wrong with him. When you have hormones shooting at you at every second of your life, you will do stupid stuff. I’m sure we have all done stupid things and we probably will do more stupid things when we are in love. I find it normal. Though I still really enjoy Kaoru and Ayatsuji’s arc, and I am left wanting for more.

Sorry S-K.  I'm now completely convinced based on his obvious virgin status with the other girls to believe that there's no way in hell he managed to inject man chowder into any orifice of Nanasaki's body.  I mean, he had Morishima wrapped in only a bath towel, in a hotel room, with her begging him to only look at her... and he somehow managed to escape that, purity intact.  I now believe that Junichi is the ****ing Houdini of Chastity.

As if we needed more evidence, this ****ing episode man.  This ****ing episode.  How in the name of Mohammad Ali is he not hitting this.  I know Haruka's dumber than a mud-fence post, but what does she have to do, wear a sign saying "Pluck This Cherry"?  And then he has the gall to basically call her mom a slut:



This ****ing guy.  Apparently he never saw the time-skip, because the rest of the audience was totally leaning on their palms with the faux drama that was "Haruka's leaving! ARGH!".  Oh well, at least he manned up a bit by the end, as if that saves this pile of trash.  Only thing about this episode worthwhile was a great shot of Sae-boob.

She was listening to the Rocky Theme.  "You can fly now..."  or something.

Final:

I have no words for how amazing that was.

Miya deserves a 1-cour series all to herself.

Spoiler for Hiden:


Sweaty, half-nekked Takahashi-sensei...

**** YEAH



Kiddy Takahashi-sensei...

**** NO

My thoughts on Amagami SS+:

Why? OH WHY? Why are we even having a continuation from the previous series? Shouldn't this be an alternate retelling of Amagami SS, where it's not of omnibus format and we get a linear one instead? Didn't we like, had enough of the first series already? Because of this, there's just nothing different this show offers: sans the difference in sequence, we get Ayatsuji + doormat Tachibana;  Rihoko + level-headed Tachibana; Nanasaki + flunk Tachibana; Kaoru + pseudo-bro Tachibana; Sae + voyeur Tachibana, and Morishima + retarded Tachibana. Give me something new, please.

Just like Amagami SS, this is a 4/10 for me. What prevented it from getting 3/10 is the last episode. Miya overshadows all the girls in this series by a street length.

I've discovered another interesting phenomenon thanks to Amagami SS:  The show is so much more interesting when Junichi isn't around.  Maybe it was just that with the whole omnibus format, we really didn't get to see much interacting between the female characters, and so an episode like this stands out more.  I don't know.  Then again, the whole Abstinence Bath Salts moment did make me laugh, so maybe it's not just an absence of our hero so much as an episode that's just not trying to be at all taken seriously.  As a bonus, Hibiki blurts out what I was thinking during the last arc.  I feel for ya, I do.

Okay, glad that shit's over.  Moving on.
