Starting into my Shugo Chara! reviews at episode 11.
I must say that this trip episode was a refreshing break from the typical summer at the beach type thing. But I did find it odd that they stemmed away from the “typical summer at the beach type thing” from the manga. This episode was pretty much exactly the same as the chapter where the guardians take a trip to the beach, but instead of skiing and boarding it was sunbathing and surfing. They even took it down to the sculpture contest (snow instead of sand); although it was funny watching tem use sand shovels on their snow castle.
This episode was a win. From Nadeshiko’s shady ways of winning the hall cleaning race to Tadase’s confession to Amulet Heart. I was laughing harder than any other episode yet. Plus Amu’s gates to hell that adorned the Kiseki’s world domination castle of snow were exaclty as they were to the manga’s sand castle. Hilarious Hilarious Hilarious. I honestly don’t see an artistic would-be-self living withing her, but as long as Miki is there I am happy.
