Persona -trinity soul- 09

Once again I am late, but I’ll be working in catching up.

This episode was all about a little outing that Shin has with Eiko. It shows some cute flashbacks of their relationship together, but the big things that are revealed in this episode don’t really involve Eiko or Shin that much.

We find out a little more about Jun again, though it is not about his powers or persona. This reveals the mystery of Yuki appearing through Jun’s body. Apparently when the brothers were younger there was a terrible accident that put Yuki and Jun in the hospital. Yuki was fatally wounded while Jun has a severe head injury. It was either lose both siblings or sacrifice Yuki to save Jun. Thus Ryou had to make the difficult decision, being the oldest, of putting some of Yuki’s brain into Jun in order to save one. This explains a little of why Jun is capable of talking to Yuki or channel her. This might also explain a little bit of his power. Yuki’s brain matter may not be the only residing aspect of his twin sister. A lingering soul may be present, but that is sheer speculation.

Shugo Chara! 17

This episode was pretty much all about proving that Nikaidou is a bad guy. He sets his eyes on Kukai as the next person for his experiment, but his trap back fires. Nikaidou tries to make Kukai believe that Tadase is secretly looking down on him and that Amu favors Tadase’s opinion over his own.

The reason why Kukai’s input would be important to Amu is because Amu was chosen as the class representative for the speech contest. Tadase always makes good grades and is normally chosen to be the speaker in these contests, but Amu was chose due to her large fan base and partly because she was sleeping in class and couldn’t say anything against it. Her participation in this contest is the big incentive for Nikaidou’s trap, but when Kukai and Tadase noticed something was up, they decided to play along and catch Nikaidou red handed. Their plan works, they finally find out that Nikaidou is making the X eggs. Yea he gets away, but Amu wins the speech contest. Good episode!

Shugo Chara! 16

This episode showed Amu and the guardians coming to the conclusion that Nikaido is indeed responsible for the X eggs. All evidence points to him, but before they figure that out they all have time for some magic.

Secretly, one of the fourth graders at their school is the famous television magician, Zero. He is adored all over, but people don’t realize that his magic is all computer generated effects. He is actually a talented magician for someone his age and can work cards in his hands like a pro, but television demands more, so he had to give up his magic and become a fraud. Of course, giving up his magic made his shugo chara return to its egg. Yes, Takuya, “Zero,” had a shugo chara at one point (he actually got his stage name from his shugo chara’s name).

Persona -trinity soul- 08

We, once again, get to see Jun in action. This whole episode revolves around a new transfer student named Mayuri. She has a past with Kanaru and both Shin and Jun feel they have met her before. We find out that Kanaru likes Shin and Takuro likes Megumi. Megumi kind of displays feelings towards Takuro and Shin returns them a bit to Kanaru, but we can’t tell if the two actually return the feelings yet.

With the coming of the Mayuri, strange things that happening around the school. Tree limbs and metal bars twist like springs and solid objects slide through each other and stay in put. People link these occurrences to Mayuri or possibly to an unknown ghost without any evidence, but Shin and Jun determine that it might be a persona rather than a ghost. So the group sneaks into school after hours to scout it out. Things start happening and in the confusion they see Mayuri coughing on the floor. Without question they tend to her, but Jun has gone to deal with other matters.

Shugo Shara! 15

This episode, obviously a follow up and closing of the previous predicament, was all about finding Snoppe. The guardians initially figured that Snoppe had gone missing and because of that Mihuy is jittery about competing. This episode, and the occurrences in the previous, give us a good look at how guardian eggs work. I’m not talking about the shugo chara itself, but the reverse of returning to an egg. When Snoppe returned to her egg, Mihuyu lost confidence in herself and didn’t have a chance to wipe away her fears with the power of her shugo chara. When Nikaido turned the egg into an X egg, Mihuyu lost even more confidence, convinced that she was incapable of snowboarding. And finally, when an X character hacthed out of the egg, Mihuyu slipped into a state of utter despair, reiterating her fears. So if you hadn’t caught on to the process of X eggs this episode shows them perfectly.

Shugo Chara! 14

I’m kinda wondering why there have been two snowboarding episodes now, but oh well. I don’t really care. This one was a school trip where 5th and 6th graders are given snowboarding lessons from a professional snowboarder that is their age, Tori Mihuyu. She’s a very talented snowboarder and a very odd, bubbly girl, but despite these qualities she gets scared and nervous before competitions. This is where the birth of her shugo chara, Snoppe, comes in handy. Snoppe is a calm eskimo looking guardian and it seems like her only real “power” is to do a character transformation that calms Mihuyu down. Even though Snoppe seems weak, Ran, Miki, Suu, and Nikaido recognize that Snoppe is actually a very powerful shugo chara.

Persona -trinity soul- 07

This episode was pretty cool because it got me to respect Megumi a little more. The story was all about why Megumi hates personas and shadow pulling/extraction and whatnot. The group, Jun, the girl from the hospital that was on Ryou’s list, and some random guy from some cafe or something went on a trip to a beach side house. On the way there, the girl from the hospital (bear with me with people I don’t care to learn the names of) remembers doing a shadow extraction with Kanaru. This irritates Megumi and she goes off on another little tangent but when a truck passes by their car she has a flashback to a former time in a vehicle and completely forgets what she was talking about. Whenever she remembers this past event her eyes widen and she perks up; simultaneously Jun does the same.
