I was pretty much dying from all the freaking cuteness in this episode. Sae being all embarrassed when Hiro was talking about her cold last year and Sae taking care of her, Miya changing Yuno's pajama's so she'd be cooler than being in her sweaty ones, Yuno's pinkness to signify her fever... it was all just so damn MOE.
And yeah, the ep was a little weird but fever dreams are always more cracked out anyways o.O So it makes sense since it would be following Yuno's mental state.
ya I really liked the whole acid trip scenes. I could really identify with what Yuno felt like with her fever, and it reminded me of when I had my own.
episode got boring at times, but it made you feel good. Yuno is too too innocent and cute (and more loli than the girls of Ichigo Mashimaro even, I say), and Miyako changing her (Yuno fanservice! ^-^), and all the girls taking care of her. Just a relaxing anime, this is. ^-^
I'm cold and my teeth are chattering after watching that.
I complete cracked up with the rabbit head in the fridge being ignored. It will most likely be thrown out when Miya isn't around. Though I'd love it if Yuno forgot about it and it comes back to haunt her, all shriveled and moldy.
I don't think the dream should have been done the way it was so early in the series. Considering how little of Yuno's character has been shown to this point it feels just random. It doesn't really qualify as foreshadowing either because it's just too cluttered with everything for any particular issue portrayed to actually stay in your mind, but on the other hand the overall feeling might be conveyed and it certainly opens up when rewatching it later. When you already know Yuno better, all of the symbolism is very intuitive to interpret and reflects her psyche nicely (how she feels about herself, how she thinks she should make herself appear to others, what certain other people mean to her and what roles they have to her, what sides of them she is afraid of or envies, how she is uncertain about the future, her loneliness, etc.)
The feelings of confusion and powerlessnes of the state of mind of a feverish person come across well, too. But I just don't think it was a good idea at this point. If there was some way to validate putting the dream where it is and why it would work when watching the series the first time around I would rate this episode 5/5, but now it just fails. I don't see what it was trying.
As weird as ever, but in this episode, it made sense.
This series is like an art flick. Not liking it much, but not hating it enough to drop... yet.
Your mean should be an even bell curve only if you watch every show that comes out. Having a high-slung mean doesn't mean you're rating improperly. It can also mean you're selecting shows well to watch mostly things you enjoy.
