The winner to the quiz is kANa CeSTyaKarA!! Congratulations!! Please email me your address details so that I can post you the CD!!
Thanks to all the other participants! There weren’t many of you and I guess my questions were a tad hard. Oops. Oh well!! No pain no gain, right!?! haha
For those interested, here are the answers!!
LOL Some light amusement for the day! Looks like Hitomi was at a function a few days ago and took the opportunity to take a quick pic with some of her ‘mistresses’! Her post does not say but the two other girls seem to be Kaori Shimizu (voiced Noriko in Marimite) and Mamiko Noto (Shimako from Marimite). Anyone care to confirm?? =)
As for the contents of her post…no clue…but from what I can gather, it’s just a bit of rambling…
Edit: Thanks to hashi, we have a translation! Arigato!!
Naba-sama’s post says that the pic is from a Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu live event. She says there was a live voice-recording session that ended up involving some lip-synching. And she says that Satou Rina misheard the announcement of the “live recording session” (”nama afureko”) as a “Naba recording session” (”Naba afureko”). She added that the audience was so enthusiastic she was surprised.

The beginning, with the narrator introducing Ame no Kisaki Academy, is very much like Marimite – though we all know that they’re just trying to fool us! The reality is that this will be one strange story!!
Now this is my first impression based off episode 1 and 4 chapters of the manga (episode 1 basically ends at chapter 1). I wasn’t quite sure what to expect given the weird twist about a cross-dressing guy.
To start with, I found it annoying how Kanako is SOOOO not subtle with her affection for other girls! For example, the numerous nosebleeds! I think she will turn anaemic very soon at the rate she’s going!! Plus she also seems to like every girl she meets. Ugh…it’s not very flattering for the character particularly when we’re only into episode 1. I’m afraid Kanako is not really to my liking.
On the otherhand Maria (though I know she’s really a ‘he’) is relatively more attractive. It might be because she resembles Erika from School Rumble who was one of my favourite characters. I also like Maria’s voice – it has a nasally touch – reminds me of Kaori Shimizu who voiced Noriko in Maria-sama. The seiyuu is Yū Kobayashi. I’m not familiar with her works except for her Shi-chan character in Candy Boy (*thumbs up*).
Anyway, back to Maria, so far, we only get a brief glimpse of his/her real side so can’t really pass judgment but there seems to be a reason behind his cross-dressing. I wonder what it is…hmm…
OMG! Fans of the seiyuu: Hitomi Nabatame, Mamiko Noto, Shizuka Ito and Kaori Shimizu – MUST check out this post!!! It completely cracked me up! hahaha I felt like I was warped into a real world of Strawberry Panic or a naughty version of Marimite!!! LOL
Here’s a glimpse of the post…AHAHAHA
Be careful who you cheat with. And when you cheat, please don’t do it openly (i.e. via blog posts) and for god’s sake, don’t show off your trophy pictures to the whole world…
I got to the end! It’s been a while since I watched a 26 episode anime! As I mentioned before, School Rumble starts off quite slowly so the fun doesn’t really kick in until halfway!
Honestly, there’s nothing new here but that’s ok cos we know that to begin with. School Rumble is another anime where it’s a recycle of old ideas – high school setting, X love Y but cannot confess their feelings, Z loves X but also has the same problem, a bunch of interesting characters, humour, some silliness – you get the idea! hahaha But don’t get me wrong! Though 6 does not sound like a great score, this anime will get you laughing (well at least in the 2nd half)! If you’re looking for silly humour about high school students, then this is another one to watch! Honestly, how can anyone take Tenma seriously?!! HAHAHAHAHA
Oooh!! Almost forgot to mention but I think one of the key highlights to the anime was the sports carnival in episodes 22 and 23! Miko-chin and Ichijo-san was SOOOOOOOOO cool! Plus there was quite a bit of screen time on Eri x Harima!!! =P HAHAHAHAHA
What really got me watching in the 2nd half are the characters aside from Tenma. There are other characters that get to have their share of the screen time – the ones most interesting to watch must be Mikoto, Eri and Yakumo.
Initially, I was more into Mikoto and Yakumo as the focus was on them first but soon I became an Eri fan!! haha Her character is initially cold and seems hard to get along (her remarks can sometimes be a bit ‘sharp’) but soon we see the softer side of her!
Warning: Spoilers ahead!
Ooooh! I just discovered another reason to like Gokujou Seitokai!! I was tossing and turning thinking why the voice of Kuon Ginga (the Vice-President and oversees the Covert Squad) sounded familiar so I looked it up and what do I see?!?!?
Kaori Shimizu – notable roles:
Maria-sama ga miteru ~ Noriko Nijo
NO WONDER!! haha I should have noticed earlier! Noriko is one of my favourite characters (well no-one said favourites have to be limited to 1 or 2!! haha)!! She has a very distinctive voice – just slightly nasally. Anyway I like it!! I better have a closer look at all the other seiyuu-s!! There might be more surprises!
Just a quick post! Couldn’t resist when I found this out!! ^_^
