Thoughts/Review:

Urusei Yatsura 102For episode 102, I have some mixed feelings. I liked the idea of learning about Sakura-sensei’s past. However, the presentation of the story is one I don’t like with its stylistic approach to the flashbacks. I admit that seeing Sakura eat her breakfast out of the metal “tub” (big metal pan which we used down south for cleaning or gathering vegetables) made me laugh as did the guys being depressed over the thought of Sakura-sensei having a bastard child. I smiled at the summoned youkai (though that term was not used in the episode), knowing Takahashi-sensei’s love of those creatures (Inuyasha). However, the episode was mostly weird and a little sad regarding how lonely Sakura was as a child.

For 103, a clip show and nothing to see here. Ditto 104.

Ochan mentions that 105 starts a new director, so we’ll see how things go there. ^_^

    Dude. I have to correct something. Episodes 105-106 are a two parter that ends Mamoru Oshii’s run in the series. While 107 Kazuo Yamazaki takes over. That being said all three episodes are in my top ten as far as UY episodes go.

    I’ve seen 105 and 106 and those blogs are written and scheduled for later in the month. However, I do appreciate the updated information though since I did make a brief mention of a new director for my 104 entry. ^_^
