For Shining Hearts this week, I’m not sure which part I should start with and which part I should put to the end. Let’s just say that Rick has finally decided to become a warrior once again to save Kaguya. This is no longer about saving the island anymore, because Kaguya is already treated as the islander thus the palace ordered Rick to save her too.
There’s more revealed about Kaguya however where she ‘s not only from the other world, it’s the world of war where she might happen to be the strongest there. There’s a high possibility that Rick and the Le Coeur girls also from the same world as their arrival were also the same as Kaguya (being washed to the shore with no memory of the past other than their own name). Another important thing revealed about Kaguya is her real name is Sakuya and the key to her unimaginable power is her mysterious pendant that is now in the prince whatever’s hand (now it seems like a good thing the prince confiscated it from the thief kitteh).
Oh by the way Xiao Mei the kitteh and Hank once again escaped with ease now that all the guards are preparing for a possible war (it seems like nothing can stop those two if they are serious). However the escape is not just an escape to flee but actually to assist in the ‘war’. You know Hank is extremely good at machineries and he seemed to have built his own weapon of mass destruction that is about to get into action.
That’s one badass 2-wheeler you have there, ojou-san.
That concludes my review for Shining Hearts this week and now we’re moving into the next review which is for Sengoku Collection ep. 12. From the episode preview last week I thought this wasn’t going to be an episode worth reviewing because of there were gangs, street mobs, thugs and delinquents but I was terribly wrong. Turned out that this was the sexiest episode in this show that I think I’d regret if I never watched it (because there was a “reverse raep” which I’m going to show you next).
You don’t mess with the “Saturday Night Rider”.
We’ve seen all kinds of genderbent ‘historical’ Japanese figures from the past episodes, from samurai to war generals, and the most recent one was a con artist. This week we have a ‘kabukimono
‘, a ‘rider’ where in this modern world the horse is replaced by a bike named “Matsukaze” that seems to be having its own soul and seemingly capable in communicating with ‘his’ master as well. The key person we have this week is Keiji Maeda
who appear to be a beautiful rider in a gorgeous kimono (and coincidentally tonight is Saturday night).
(Top) Maeda during working time. (Bottom) Maeda’s strict meganekko boss.
In everyday life she appears to be a tall, plain nerdy-looking (but oppailicious) meganekko who works at a convenience store but every Saturday night she would go patrolling the city beating up the bad guys as guided by Matsukaze. By beating up bad guys are including “correcting bike riders into becoming a true kabukimono” while at the same time enforcing some ‘moral’s on them, which is not really a bad thing to me. Quickly she gained a feared reputation among the bad guys and of course that’s really a good thing.
I found this sexier than the last week’s episode and the one with Masamune too (and she might even be on par with Masamune in terms of “oppailiciousness”, if not better).
One thing that has been disturbing Maeda is the thug whom she “talked to” one day in front of the store has bought a colourful boxer. Maeda who always have the mindset that “kabukimono must always wear white underwear” felt she must correct this because she sees modern bike riders and thugs as ‘kabukimono’ too and not because she was having a grudge or something against him. However the way she ‘teaches’ him about it was way too sexy that I have lost my words to describe it but before that let me show you her ‘henshin’ sequence (even sexier than the sexiest henshin I’ve ever seen before!).
The moment before transformation into Saturday Night Rider.
Transformation in progress.
Transformation into Saturday Night Rider 100% completed.
The other day Maeda saved a teacher from a group of biker delinquents who called themselves “Sanctuary” and from there she developed a connection with that teacher that would then proved to be useful in tracking the thug who bought the boxer earlier (from her she knows his name was Kudou). Then she went to get him but Matsukaze, her “bike” guided elsewhere, where her boss was having a serious trouble with a bad guy. Good thing Maeda arrived in time and saved her boss from getting raped and after that she went for what she originally planned, which is to ‘teach’ Kudou.
This is what I call “reverse raep”.
And a reverse raep is still a raep if you ask me.
For a reverse raep to work it’s necessary to undress and flash your underwear first.
And as the one who does the raeping you’d need to act ‘S’.
Once you’re done with flashing and ‘S’-ing then you may proceed with the riding position.
Once you found the perfect position then you may start doing ‘everything else’ until you’re satisfied. Reverse raep done.
With the reverse raep done Maeda now have a better term with her boss, or I must say her always-strict boss is now more tolerable at petty things where they used to be intolerable to her before. Now I’m interested with the next episode because we’ll get to see Nobunaga again after her absence in numbers of episodes. The next episode seems to be a mizugi episode but I really want to see all the Sengoku girls in mizugi too!
Next in episode 13.
