Shugo Chara! 17

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!

Okay, so this has taken me forever to get around to watch because I’ve been on a Senior ski trip to Colorado during this past week. I left like right when the episode came out… How unfortunate for me.

I was really looking forward to it, but nothing much happened. Actually, this episode made me mad. I was angry with everyone (especially Shin’ichirou) because Noe wasn’t smiling. The fact that Hiromi and Jun rode off on the bike and got in a crash was pleasing; everyone saw it coming. I felt bad for Jun because he lost his bike, but oh well. Shin and Noe came up behind their accident in a taxi; Noe ran to Jun and Shin went to Hiromi. With his arms wrapped around another girl, Noe slipped became sad.

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).

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.

Happy Happy Happy! Shin’ichirou actually started dating Noe without letting that stupid kiss get in the way. I’m so proud of the way he handled that whole situation too. Sorry, can’t be with you like that. I’ll forget this. Of course that hurt Aiko’s feelings. She is happy that she was able to kiss Shin, but she is terribly sad that she was rejected. She can’t have thought that she’d have been accepted. Somewhere in her she had to have known that Shin would have an obligation to his friend.

What was probably the best about this episode was all of the cute Noe shots. You’re watching and just melting whenever there are close ups of her cute face. Hiromi even comments on how Noe has a cute face. She’s kind of jealous when she says it and she realizes that she sounds a little bit like Shin’s mother. But that’s beside the point. I have to say I caught myself when I started saying that Shin’s mother is a bitch. This episode, I didn’t want to, but I saw the whole thing from her point of view and I felt bad for her. Then I went back to calling her a mean old whore.

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.
