@Acura_Max: sure, go ahead. I was gonna write just a paragraph summary for the episodes a la my Ranma quickies, but I'll be glad for the help. #5, 10-12 need to be filled. i've done everything else. you should also letknow that you're taking over.
bad news, schoolwork is getting heavy, so I'm not going to be able to write up the episode summaries like I did any more. I'm still going to watch the show, so I'm not out of the loop of things, and when Christmas break reaches, I'll see about filling in the remaining episodes.
@Acura_Max: granted, I think Taichi was just being any normal teenage boy being exposed to boobies. I don't think he realized he was Iori at that moment (though I could be wrong). and besides, Iori rips at him for doing so. but this whole thing sorts itself out in ep 3.
@Acura_Max: thanks! also, the characters get a whole lot more developed as the show goes on, and personally, I feel that heartseed may say he's doing this for his amusement, but he seems to be helping the group to develop into genuine people, so maybe he isn't as evil as he first seems.
thanks for lettin me know about this. well, I wouldn't really push the bodyswapping as the focal point of the show, it's just the premise for the first arc. I really enjoy this show, haven't felt like this about a show since I watched Gosick last year. Its rather drama heavy, but It works well with the flow of the story. Also, Himeko <3
though I will say although Fujishima starts as a stock lesbian character, she gets a lot more in depth later on, and is effectively the sixth main character aside from heartseed.
if Orochimaru can come back seemingly out of nowhere, there's hope for Jiraya. though it might be different. also, there's always the possibility he isn't really dead. (usually, there's a flashback when someone dies in Naruto. IIRC, Jiraya didn't have one.)
