Can we just skip this episode?!
I’m BACKKKKKK to civilization. Actually I tagged along my folks and aunts and uncles on a fancy bus trip. The bus has wifi (ha. Ha. HA! not really) but those 3, 4 am morning calls and 15 hrs a day on bus is totally not a life I can ever assimilate to. Anyway, my butt is back on a chair that is not exactly more comfy, but at least it’s stationary and that’s a blessing and after a Monday of ALL HELLISH MONDAYS I clicked on 11.
HOW FRECKING BORING IS THE EPISODE?!?! I’m not full of rants like oh ep9?! (I mean 8) BUT this has barely enough material for 10min of an ItaKiss LiT episode, the pace we’re fond of anyway. Yes, all my prematurely old bones are shaken and stirred and achy and I have to constantly talk myself not run away to say Kauai for a wk of nothing but sleeping and tanning with sea turtles. So it’s more me less than perky for wear. BUT STILL! IT’s an ITAKISS EPISODE!!! IT IS SO NOT SUPPOSED TO PUT ME TO SLEEP. NOR spiking a never up to any good ramen and cup noodles and pocky and KinChan’s cooking of LURVE cravings ALL AT ONCE dARN IT! But not champagne, argh, I can’t stand peeps being so pretentious as to drinking champagne with KFC, yes, nothing wrong with it, but if I ‘posed I should find it so princely when Irie is doing it but all my brain is screaming at me is GREASY!!! What rubs me wrong is I do not see Irie enjoying it along with Kotoko, it’s like he’s lowering himself with the KFC and fulfilling a duty to make her happy with the cake (and comeon, when did he has the time to magically tada! a cake just when Kotoko wants one?!) when I need him to enjoy himself like Kotoko is, spending the first big occasion with his Kotoko.
But I did (wander off to my lalaland). And I only snapped back till towards the end when MYKinChanOHMYYYYYKinChan is being awesome but heartbroken and by association breaking mine. You do not go from actively hugging and kissing to THIS IrieKun or whomever possessed you in this episode. Same for you Kotoko, cute as you are with your faces, this is such a non-episode of nothing happens except a sorta date on some big santa claus day which means nothing to me unless that holiday calls for mandatory baby making or sth. Who needs KFC?!?! Or food coloring galore CAKES as big freaking deals/climaxes?! NOT ME!
haha sorry I actually had a very spiffy time last week, opposite of this rant monster thing you are witnessing, but it’s exactly because life’s been kind and I have not really that much urge to watch 11 to begin with, let alone rewatch and force myself to spazz and squee when I have NOTHING. Not really real rants, but utterly royally bored.
Ok, yeah my gutterbrain did go somewhere it shouldn’t here:
When in the Irie planet, after you are quite brutally repeatedly hit by a tennis racket, as long as the person holding it is your future wifey, all is well except for the urgent loosening of one’s tie. Yes, Kotoko, I know in your innocent brain this is just a visual of your Irie being impossibly dreamy and shuai, hence that gloating smile but I can imagine some major droolzing there, esp when I’m very bored. And yo, I’m not the only one, some talented fan is also fanficing what SHOULD’ve happened after some bulbs were out later or sth (ok I made that up, the OP was just fanficing what could’ve happened one of these days if Irie walked into a sleeping Kotoko in her room without a Yuki in the room) :
So cheer on my sweethearts, if you have a scene or two you love and see things I missed, holler! Otherwise, lets wait a few days for some Angst! in 12 and in the mean time have a spiffy fan MV, or droolzing at some gorgeous fanart of 10 (because 10 is PERFECTIONx10 to the power 10!!!):
