Oh, good question !BTW, is it coincidence that Ami wears the same hat in Gargoylewings video link than in your strip, or did you do that on purpose...?
Yuichiro is still here ! Yay! And Rei seems to acknowledge his existence, so hope is still here.• A DAY AT THE SHRINE
Gramps: "I haven't seen any girls coming here lately. I wonder why?"
Yuichiro: "Don't ask me, sir."
It had to happen once...Gramps: "'Top 6 places to avoid in Azabu-Juban'?! 'Number 1: The Hikawa Shrine—'"
Rei: "—'because of the dirty old man who runs it!' With pictures. ¡Congratulations, Papi! ¡National exposure! ¡You're in the running for most famous lech in all Japan! ¡And I hope you're proud of yourself!"
Now that´´s a surprise !Gramps: "Today, I retire."
Rei and Yuichiro: "WHAT?!"
Gramps: "Rei, you are now in charge of the shrine."
Rei: "¡Wait, wait, wait! ¡I haven't received qualification as a shinshoku yet!"
Persistent little bug, isn´´t she ?Chibi-Usa: "…I'm looking for the Silver Crystal."
Usagi: "I DON'T HAVE IT!"
Chibi-Usa: "…tickle attack!"
Erm, will you stay with this now ?Usagi: "How you doing, Fraulein Mizuno?"
Oh dear, here it is again...Ami: "I am earning money while practicing math."
Yoruichi still is as athletic than back in the Kunzite arc.Yuichiro, in training leotard: "Yes?"
Rei: "…I lost my train of thought."
Hm, looks like my "theory" is in fact a memory of how it really was. Needs one more proof though.?????? the red: "…Rubeus, have y'all seen Koan?"
Rubeus, the redhead: "She's already on her next operation. We've located another Crystal Point, it's part of some old shrine—"
Yeah, Yoruiche really got it.Yuichiro: "Er, anyway—look! Recruits!"
Yuichiro dramatically reveals scores of young women, excitedly chattering about this new exercise program and the hunky young coach.
Hm, subtlety really is not their strengh...Koan, wearing leotard and cat ears
LOL !Rei: "I SENSE EVIL."
Usagi: "Really? Wh—?"
Chibi-Usa /materializes, in exercise outfit. "Hello!"
Usagi: "Too easy."
Well, Rei, tell yourself that long enough and we will believe you. You can take that one sunday out of the memory, but you can never get the....memory...ot...whatever...Makoto: "I don't blame you. He mistreated your beloved Yuichiro."
Rei: "HE IS NOT MY BELOVED YUICHIRO."
Rei /clatters tea tray. "My romantic issues, whatever they may be, are not the problem here."
You changed that to keep the cram school characterization a bit smaller, didn't you ?Ami: "The harder the problem, the more it's worth solving."
Rei: "If this is another speech about math I will slug you."
Ami: "Hear me out! Hear me out! Look, see this math problem in this book here? That look me three hours to solve, because I was going about it all wrong. What I finally had to do was break it down to what the actual problem was—to figure out which piece of it what the real issue. The rest was just confusing the issue. You're angry, obviously, but you need to work out specifically why. Then you can start to fix things."
Some moves looked actually dangerously illegal, too !• OVER AT THE DOJO
Things have spiralled completely out of control. Koan's enchantment of the ring has caused all the women to be as violent as the Dumble Droid. A chorus of suplexes, body slams, and headlocks makes the room vibrate with dark energy.
And...here we go-ho...The women rise up in a mob and attack Gramps.
Gramps /Seven-Fold Swallow Defense.
Gramps /Puissance of the Tiger.
Gramps /Rushing River Technique.
The women collapse unconscious.
Literally...Dumble /HULKS OUT
Rei: "¡You're the only grandpa I have!"
Doumble really is a machine; and Rei semms to have gone more on the "Priestess"-part than the "Kung-Fu-Master part...<< Rei : Tech > Fire-Forged Fist : Dumble >>
Gramps: "No, Rei! That technique won't—"
< Dumble goes flying! >
< …but Dumbles bounce! >
< Dumble counterattacks! >
<< Rei : Tech > Double Sacrifice Defense : All Friends >>
(I hoped more for a Slam, but ok...)<< Dumble and Koan use Dual-Technique: Dark Power Flip! >>
Hey, only because she uses not her tiara anymore, does never mean she forgot how to use that trick.• SUDDENLY!
Enter Sailor Moon, dramatically, armed with +5 Holy Lunar Scepter.
Tux, otoh, still has always one more throwing trick up his sleeve.• SUDDENLY!
Enter Tuxedo Mask, dramatically, armed with +3 blessed throwing roses.
Koan: "Now what?!"
Plus, Mamoru still has the Warrior tricks in his inventory (plus the Connection powers, too, granted).<< Mamoru : Tech > Flying Kick : Dumble >>
< Dumble is knocked over! >
Mamoru: "All yours."
!"Koan and Usagi freeze in mid-brawl and stare at her.
Rei /eyes aflame. "¡VENGEANCE SHALL BE MINE!"
Usagi /puts down the birdhouse and steps aside. "All yours, Mars!"
Koan /sneers. "Bwing it on
Power up: the rings literally cut through the fire blast of Koan !<< Rei : Cast : BurnMandala : Koan >>
Millions of rings of fire swirl out and overwhelm Koan's flames with a searing bullet hell that explodes into fireworks.
Although I am happy they never (and I mean: NEVER) get/got rid of the burning jokes following Rei's attacks.< Koan is hit! >
< …her dress is also on fire! >
I think we've got a misunderstanding going on here, or I totally blew the question.Megumi ToyoguchiAnd the voice actress is?At that point in the video, I was expecting her voice shift. But chirpy Revy-chan!, who then shifts in mid-sentence to the Goddamn Two-Hands, then back. That slew me.Speaking of Black Lagoon and voice actors, I think Shadowjack should give a listen to Roberta's and let us know what you think
I'll tell you something else the animators didn't think of. Or the western rights-holders were just anal.In some traditions, one dresses up a little when one goes travelling, e.g. businesswear, or uniform.
Or the animators just didn't think of it.
Or decided against it for reasons of iconic imagery.
I also swear what the voice actress actually says is Shin/ing/ Aqua Illusion, which would not only be grammatically correct but was also the US version.God when the live action introduced that attack I ranted about its name for weeks. I mean what did she do look up random english words?
