End of the Dream

Sigh, this was supposed to be a comment (about Yumeria) over at Chizumatic, but it kinda got away from me. Once again, I prove that, no matter how silly an animé series is, hours of time can be devoted to analyzing it. Defiinitely time for the spoiler tags…

As for one of the stranger bonds in the show, Show ▼

Then there’s those last two episodes, to which I had the same reaction. “Um, replay, please?” Actually, I liked it at the time, and still do. The battles were pretty boring and silly, so the plot twist of Show ▼

In the end, Show ▼

On the other hand there is one thing that creeps me out about it… Show ▼

And I accused Steven of over-thinking.

The final scene though, that was a groaner, and was very expected. Show ▼

There is one last open question, though: does “the old man next door” remember anything?

Ok, I take that back, I just thought of another, even if it belongs over at Derailed by Darry. Show ▼

  1. Let’s see if I can make spoiler tags work.

  2. I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong, Ubu. why won’t my spoiler tags work?

    Using angle brackets?

    I fixed it. They work for me, but everyone else seems to have trouble. I’m trying to remember if anyone else has used them successfully. Maybe it’s linked to permissions, and you have to be an admin to get it to work in comments? Stupid, if so.

    Back to the spoilers…

    Oh, and another thing. It is rather jarring to see that Neneko doesn’t live with them by midway through the series, which raises all sorts of questions about what the hell are her parents doing while she’s off traipsing around town, getting gifts from pedo shopkeepers and alcholic drinks from women at bars. (Just what was the text on that lady’s back?)

    Maybe Hayate had a little sister that got given to some Very Nice People when he was too young to remember. (Cross-series joke, for those that don’t watch fansubs.)

  5. Yeah, I tried to use angle brackets. Let’s try a couple of experiments:

    This is a single line spoiler, using angle brackets

    This is a multiline spoiler, using angle brackets, with the tags on separate lines.

    I’ve used spoilers in your comments before, which is why I was surprised that they didn’t work today.

  6. OK, seems as if I need to use square brackets. You should change the “You can use the following tags” list to change the angle brackets on “spoiler” to square brackets.

    And now a real spoiler:

    That is truly weird. Angle brackets are supposed to work… and do for me. Ok, my turn to experiment….

    Neito is another question mark. Show ▼

    Edit: I just remembered, last night I replaced a key file to fix a bug involving registration and permissions, then I deleted about a dozen userID’s that looked bogus. (Odd that WP will show how many posts a registered user has made, but not how many comments.) It’s strictly a user registration file, not comments, but who knows?

  10. Ubu Roi says:

    You know, that’s entirely possible.

    And I agree, we are over-analyzing it… but then if we don’t, who will? Jason? :P

  11. Let me see if I can use the spoiler tags:

    Fixed tags –Ubu

  12. Argh, sorry, I must have done the spoiler thing wrong.

  13. BC, it seems you have to use square brackets instead of angle brackets on the spoiler tag.
