Shining Hearts: Shiawase no Pan Episode 12 Discussion
Jun 30, 2012 9:34 AM
THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Riku going into the mahoujin and found Kaguya. Then he saw boss, who is stronger than him.
Prince is playing harp while princess praying. Everyone watching the battle.
The pendant on him shines.
Thieves pair bombed from his place.
Queen, pendant, and Kaguya releasing light, and saved the island.
It's amazing that the bread didn't get wet from them flewing to ashore. Both of them are "tired".
Prince said he can make a good music by Riku's victory, and amazed at Riku's skill (exceeding his expectation). And the moon is not red anymore. Queen left Kaguya. Back to peace. Even the elves appeared again. Elve HiroC's smile! Pirates are departing.
Since that guy bombed directly from his place, he got no place to live.
Riku is back as a baker. Learning about good or bad in temperature (content). Way of making things to lead to success or failure (how)... Riku wants to progress, and he's getting there (bread is getting there).
etc., with OP as inserted song. There was ED. Riku's smile with completed breads after the ending.
I ♥ Two Syaorans from Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE and TRC!!!

I thought this anime gonna have a bittersweet ending but looks like we still got a happy ending though I kind of expected it since the title of this episode is "Shiawase no Pan" or "Bread or Happiness".
Also, it took me 11 episodes until I realized "Bread of Happiness" is a pun or wordplay from the game ED song title "World of Happiness" which is basically the state of the world Rick and the others live in.. until lizardman pirates from other world invades and disrupts that happiness.

I mean, usually I'm fine waiting a few extra days is the subbers happen to be late, but this is the last episode. WHERE ARE YOU!
Hadena was under the assumption that it didn't air this last week. I don't know if they have figured out that it did air.

Where the hell is Mistral? Seriously. The only reason I bothered with this show is because I wanted to see how Yukarin would voice Mistral. What the hell was Production IG thinking? This incompetent trash can't even be called an adaptation of an already bad game. They wasted a bunch of money on this, and they don't even have the fan-favorite girl show up? Jeez. The only thing decent about this show were the character designs by Tony Taka. That's it.

It was a good ending tho it could have used some more spices then again the entire anime has been pretty laid back.
I wonder if there will be sequel to this.
The anime itself was pretty nice to see a strange but happy island and the way there bakers live.

Breadmaking version of Aria.
This is pretty much what this anime is about... I don't see how so many people is hating on this show and made this show have such a lower score while Aria have much higher score.
Well, Aria was from the start sure of what it wanted to do and never deviated from that, at least not for very long. It did what it set out to do very well and in a way that satisfied the expectations of the people watching it to a very high degree.
Shining Hearts, however, has struggled with what it was trying to be and in the end didn't do what it wanted to do very well.
Now, mind you, I didn't dislike Shining Hearts, but I felt it definitely did better when it wasn't trying to be trying to be action/adventure. The actions sequences, with the exception of the sword fight between Rick and Xiao-Mei in the castle, just simply came across very awkwardly to me. Everything else, from Hank's motor scooter to Rick's sudden ability to take down a high tech battleship with a sword, just came across as so much "Gee! Look at what I can do!" and felt very out of place.

parfaited said:Well, it WAS all about the bread. In the end, that was all that mattered, right? ;)
I was going to give this a 4 if not for the scene where Rick was basically dying and he still puts in effort to take some bread out to give to Kaguya.

I guess Shinning series will never get any decent adaptation.
Personally, I like this anime version better than the game itself.. I didn't get much feeling of happiness when playing the game despite it was supposed Shining Heart story theme.
From the game OP and ED, it is even implied the story takes place in an Utopia or World of Happiness.
I still wondered why some characters from the game doesn't appear at all in this anime, maybe it is result of fitting the story into only 12 episodes.
So many things needs to be explained and the episode just ends like this?
I think if they explained it, it gonna take the happiness away from the story.
