@ ThomasRomain, Yune does NOT LOOK 13!!!!!!!!!! TO me she looks like a 9 year old...
Claude as 17 makes sense.
haha, but thats just my perception.
Yune is really cute but is mature, she knows her manners and such. Its true that Japanese people dont really eat dairy, they do drink milk though... The only time when i had dairy products when i went to japan long ago was milk for breakfast in the morning ONCE out of the 18 days we went and like cheese which was a... topping and you couldnt really taste it. hahah but the family i lived with jst maybe didnt like dairy products. This is just out of my experience.
What was that weird sound the lady at the bread booth gave out when she handed over the bread to Yune? I guess it was some kind of reaction from the warmth of the bread. Yune didn't seem to think it was that hot when she recieved it, though. xD
I'm glad I decided to pick up this show, it's so enjoyable to watch and the art is so beautiful. I put the majority of my thoughts in my blog post, but I wanted to say for anyone who is on the fence about watching this, you should definitely give it a try! Maybe you'll love the slow pacing, or maybe you'll hate it, but at the very least I'm sure you'll love the amazing backdrops and the animation.
Thought this episode was great. The OP and ED are slowly growing on me :P
I would totally be like Yune if I were to go to a foreign country - asking about everything, not knowing the customs and stuff ... lol :P The chibi parts were uber cute (the last umebishi (SP?) part was hilarious XD). New characters next episode, should be fun! :O
Oh my the preview certainly looks interesting with the whole hiccup and how Camille helps Yune to get rid of it. What caught my attention is some skin of Yune (Oh my my some light fan service) in the spoiler
the segment does look like a accidental walk in but Japanese customs say that if you see a girl naked of theirs you have to marry her so I wonder how Yune will feel towards Claude when this event happens.
Hoppy said: Yune was shocked at the food, especially the cheese reminds me of when I tried some Limburger cheese and smelled it first, her reaction was the exact reaction as in my experience.
I agree with this except that I did have my experience with that type of food but definitively the reaction that Yune was there.
I had a big reaction when i first went to France and experienced a table full of smelly cheeses. Before then i only had eaten a more normal not very strong or smelly cheese. But the French had such variety and many of them had intense smell and flavor that can seem unpleasant at first.
And the bakery i remember everyone buying those long breads. Is not that i haven't seen one before but the fact that there wasn't a more normal size bread and everyone was buying that long thin breads seemed so fan to me.
I really get Yune's feelings.
And as about Yuna. Well one again Rena expresses my feelings.
Damn where can i get one? I need one to help me around the house and bring cuteness in my every day life. They should sell clones of her in every shop.
Yune is not like your average young girl, dam she's so mature and understanding... which is very rare at such a young age. I like how Claude reacted to the pickled plum. I want to take this opportunity to state that I like both cheese and coffee. Coffee = the bitter the better!
This is ridiculous. Yune is cute, chipper, and curious towards every single little thing. She's less of a character and more of a small animal, reacting to everything with a surprised or startled jolt. Hell, she even has a fang, what gives?
I'm having mixed feelings with this show. On one hand, I absolute love the OST, the tone of the show, and the city they're in. On the other hand, everything else seems centered around Yune and Claude. While that's all fine on paper, it feels way too coordinated. This feeling is hard to describe, but it's making me question why I liked Aria, which was also directed by Junichi Sato. Perhaps here it spends too much time with the characters and not enough time with its world. The character gimmicks and their culture shocks are too much. I want to see more of Paris. I want to see the town during different times of the day, under different weather conditions, or through different eyes. This might improve over the course of the series, as this is merely the introduction.
I really do want to like this show, as it feels like everything I could ever want from a slice of life. For now though, it feels like if I don't like this show, I'm a heartless bastard or something. That might be why the show feels off, but again, it makes me wonder why I like Aria so much. Anyways, I'll keep my skepticism in check and continue enjoying a quaint and peaceful Paris.
