Myself ; Yourself

07 Oct

Myself; Yourself : Photograph of Syuri, Nanaka, Sana, Syusuke, and Aoi from left to right, top to bottom.

Left to right, top to bottom: Syuri, Nanaka, Sana, Syusuke, and Aoi.

Sakuranomori is the birthplace of Sana Hidaka, a sixteen year old high school student, who grew up with his childhood friend Nanaka Yatsushiro, Aoi Oribe, his best male friend Syusuke Wakatsuki, and his twin sister Syuri Wakatsuki. Sana left Sakuranomori when he was eleven years old, but returns five years later living on his own in the apartment building Aoi’s family runs. Sana soon finds out that while some things have stayed the same, there are still just as many things that have changed.

Myself; Yourself : Syuri, Nanaka, Sana, Syusuke, and Aoi kneeling and gathered around a low Japanese table.

Myself; Yourself : Syuri showing Syusuke what she got for Sana's farewell gift.

Myself; Yourself : Nanaka telling everyone what she's did for Sana's farewell gift.

Myself; Yourself : Nanaka removing the rubber band from her wrist.

Myself; Yourself : Nanaka holding the rubber band with her mouth ready to tie a pony tail.

Myself; Yourself : Nanaka playing the violin.

Myself; Yourself : Nanaka promises Sana.

Myself; Yourself : The train Sana is riding in.

Myself; Yourself : Sana's flashback of Shuu(Syusuke) trying to tell him something.

Myself; Yourself : Sana pondering over what Shuu(Syusuke) was trying to tell him.

Myself; Yourself : Sana's flashback of young Nanaka with chocolate sauce all over her mouth from eating a chocolate banana bought from a matsuri.

Myself; Yourself : Sana's flashback of himself giving a rubber band he won at the Matsuri to Nanaka.

Myself; Yourself : First meeting with Nanaka at the shinto shrine where she's dressed as a Miko.

Myself; Yourself : Sana's omikuji which shows 大凶「だいきょう」

Dai-kyō「大凶 「だいきょう」」 was what was written on Sana’s Omikuji, it means misfortune, great curse, terrible luck, or atrocity in Japanese.

Myself; Yourself : Nanaka hiding behind a shelf.

Visitors to a shinto shrine can purchase an arrow, write their wish or prayer and tie it to the arrow then places it at the shrine.

Myself; Yourself : Sana admiring Aoi's boobs.

17 years old Aoi. Many viewers can’t stand the pitch of her voice, I think it’s bearable though. Just concentrate on the boobs.

Myself; Yourself : Sana trying to contain a nose bleed after looking at Aoi's boobs.

Sana overdid the “concentrate on the boobs” part and his nose started gushing blood.

Myself; Yourself : Sana's private stash of eroge and pornography.

Sana’s private stash.

Myself; Yourself : Sana trying to stop Aoi from opening the other box.

Myself; Yourself : Aoi's parents.

Aoi’s parents.

Myself; Yourself : Aoi muttering to herself about her mother's behaviour.

Myself; Yourself : Aoi secretly smiling to herself because Sana is back.

Myself; Yourself : Sana's version of Nanaka in his dream.

Myself; Yourself : Nanaka squashing Sana's face with her boobs in Sana's dream.

Sana’s fantasy.

Myself; Yourself : Sana on the phone with his mother.

Myself; Yourself : Sana wondering why Aoi brings an apron with her to school.

Myself; Yourself : Sensei trying to get the students to return to their seats.

Japan and their pretty teachers, policewomen, etc…

Myself; Yourself : Shuu(Syusuke) explaining to the teacher that he and Sana are childhood friends.

Syusuke or Shuu as Sana calls him. Voiced by Takehito Koyasu who also did Mu La Flaga in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED+Destiny.

Myself; Yourself : Syuri asking Sana why he decided to come back.

Myself; Yourself : Shuu(Syusuke) playfully wrestles with Sana by putting his arm around Sana's neck.

Myself; Yourself : Sana thinking to himself and is glad that Shuu(Syusuke) and Syuri haven't changed.

Myself; Yourself : Sana spots Nanako and asks if she was the girl at the temple yesterday.

Myself; Yourself : Nanako's slap in action.

Best shot of the episode.

Myself; Yourself : Nanako's slap hits Sana's face.

Myself; Yourself : Sana spots the rubber band he gave to Nanako many years ago on this girl's wrist.

Myself; Yourself : Sana realizes that that girl is Nanaka.

Overall this episode gives a Kanon-ish School Days feel. More Kanon than School Days. Even if Sana’s anything like Makoto, I doubt things would get out of hand as they actually featured Aoi’s parents. In School Days, all you see are the students, petting, implied sex, and death. No parents were shown that could keep their children from running amok. Will all the girls fall for Sana Kanon style? Probably not, according to the visual novel, there are two male protagonists. Sana and Syusuke. So we’re unlikely to see Kanon all over again as well. So, what did Sana do to deserve that 美しい 「うつくしい」 slap from Nanako? What was Syusuke trying to tell Sana when he was leaving? Why did Sana come back? I guess I’ll be watching on to find out.

Fansub compliments of m.3.3.w who also subbed School Days.
