Ouran High School Host Club, Episode 16 - Operation Haruhi and Hikaru's First Date
This is probably my favorite episode, at least of OHSHC! The boys have accompanied Haruhi out of town on break, and they run into an old friend of Haruhi's, Arai. Hikaru immediately becomes very emotional and jealous and lashes out. Kaoru decides that it would do him good to have some time alone with Haruhi, have someone dear to him other than himself, so he tricks them into going out on a little date. Hikaru is reluctant at first, but comes to enjoy himself - until they run into Arai again, who offers to give them a ride back, since it's about to rain, but Hikaru insists on hailing a cab rather than accept the offer. Haruhi runs after him, but gets caught in the storm. That's when Hikaru recieves an angry and panicked call from Tamiki, demanding that he find Haruhi because she is terrified of thunder, but how was he supposed to know!? Then he remembers all the times that day she'd commented hoping it wasn't going to thunder. He finds her in a chapel huddled under a table and comforts her, apologizing for being an ass (basically). I ship Haruhi x Hikaru so hard; he needs someone like her who understands him like Kaoru does!
And I thought it was hard just picking my favorite episode for the Naruto Challenge! I don't think I really have a standout favorite episode, but these were some that bubbled to the surface as I pondered this.
Bleach, Episode 304 - Gaiden Again! This Time's Enemy Is A Monster?
This was the second episode of its kind, and I loved them both! In this episode, Ichigo found himself stuck in a dream where he and his friends were all monsters. I just love how Ichigo is so self aware and just determined to wake up and get the hell out - and then it turns out it's not even his dream! Wolfman Hitsugaya is even more adorable than usual, too! <3 Bleach doesn't take itself too seriously when it comes to filler, and I love that about it!
Durarara!! Episode 20 - A New King Will Rise
Okay, so I mostly love this one for Erika and Walker's insights on separating fiction from reality. It also gives a lot of insight to Masaomi's situation as Anri and Mikado's friend and leader of the Yellow Scarves, as well as his past when the Blue Square kidnapped and injured his girlfriend and he froze up when he tried to save her.
Fairy Tail, Episode 44 (2014) - What the True Heart Spins
First thing I have to say about this one is what in the world possessed Bisca and Alzac to leave Asuka in the care of Natsu, of all people!? Not that he did a bad job; on the contrary, he'd make an awesome dad! He challenged her to a shooting contest, and, since she won, he had to do whatever she said for the rest of the day (it was suggested that he lost on purpose <3)! The whole episode was adorable, but the best part was definitely when she asked whether he and Lucy had ever kissed because "mommy and daddy kiss all the time," so she told him to kiss Lucy. After arguing about it a little, he finally went for it, but Lucy blocked him with Happy at the last second! I dare you to watch this episode without cracking a smile!
Hellsing Ultimate 7
I've fangirled over this episode before, but this is the episode that created one of my top 3 OTPs! Seras Victoria and the French mercenaries were holding down the fort at Hellsing Manor when they were viciously attacked by Zorin Blitz of Millennium. They were nearly defeated, but Seras and Pip made a major comeback with the power of love! I know that sounded really cheesy, but it's WAY more badass than that sounded! I went more in depth on Day 26, Best Anime Fight. You should go check it out!
Naruto, Episode 311 - Prologue of Road to Ninja
I haven't seen Road to Ninja yet, but I have a vague idea of what it's about. There wasn't really much that happened. Basically Naruto was bored out of his mind playing cards with a couple of his shadow clones (that was kinda cute!); meanwhile, Team Gai just returned from a mission, and Tenten suggested a trip to the public baths. Lee declined to train, but he had the idea to invite all of their friends, including Naruto, saying he'd swing by later. It was a classic public bath anime episode, but it was just really simple and sweet. For more of my favorite Naruto episodes, check out THIS CARD!
As always, hope you enjoyed! If you wanna learn more about me/ be my friend/ be tagged in these, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm nice, I swear (mostly ;p)! Or I guess you can follow my 100 Days of Anime collection, or both if you feel so inclined!
Until next time! Please, feel free to share your thoughts/answers in the comments! I love discussion!
