Now that I am no longer separated from my Princess Tutu DVDs, I'm picking back up with my rewatch of the series.

Warnings: spoilers, possible over analyzation, lame jokes, and a bit of capslock abuse.
 

Akt 18

"But the knight couldn't do anything but carry out his duty.  And even after death he still seeks a duty to carry out."  This part makes me think of Fakir more than anything else.

LOL THEATER FREAKS.

"He's the guy that pushes people he doesn't like out the window, right?"  xD

Raven!Mytho is such an amazing asshole.  I kinda love him.

"What is it that defines an impure love?  After all, who can say that Odile's love is impure?"  Oh, Neko-sensei.  Y'know, sometimes I wonder if he wasn't aware of the story.  

"The knight who's lost sight of the place where he can rest his soul."

"He's been seeking the enemy he's supposed to fight with."  No, Fakir.  That's you.

"That's right.  Your battle has been over for a long time."


Akt 19

"I want to tell my beloved how I feel, but my love might be over the moment I confess it."  Aaand, the Ahiru meta episode comes right after the Fakir meta episode.

... So, let's see.  Ahiru offers criticism on Fakir's sword, he gets all defensive but says he isn't mad, and then he kicks her out of his bedroom walks her home.  There is absolutely nothing at all I could read into that.  Nothing.

Hermia/Lysander FTW xDD

Incidentally, does anybody else read the whole Lysander/Hermia/Mytho thing as parallel for Fakir/Ahiru/Mytho?  In an indirect, condensed way.

Oh, hey Autor.  You get lines today.

...*high-friggin-fives*

And yes. I did see that parallel in the show. But I usually think up things that often don't exist, so I dunno. May just be my imagination. XD;;

... I still feel like there were so many other things I could have pointed out about that little scene. Like how it happens with the bed between them, or how even if you filter out certain ... suggestive elements, it still sounds remarkably like a lovers' spat. xD

I didn't even think about it until this watch through, after I'd written that little note about this being the Ahiru meta episode. And then I noticed that Hermia is really a lot like Ahiru, and Lysander could be a parody of Fakir .... And I'm often reluctant to believe there are any accidents in Princess Tutu. It kinda makes me want to go back and watch the whole episode again, just to carefully track the Lysander/Hermia/Mytho.

So, if we both see it, I say it just means we are geniuses. *nods*

Well, THERE'S a scene that's been ruined for me forever. Thanks. XD

Happy to be of service. xD

...You know, there are VERY few scenes that haven't been completely twisted to me by now, but that was (oddly enough) one of them that hadn't been. AND NOW IT SO IS. XDDD

I was just sitting there watching it, and then I said to myself, "... Wait a sec. I feel like I missed something." So I went back and replayed the scene, and then I said to myself, "Why is my pervert alarm going off?" So I watched it again. And that was what I came up with.

Though, as I said to Sammie, even if I'm not wearing my pervert hat, it still feels more like a lovers' spat than their usual tiffs. xD
