Sumimura Yoshimori and Shishio Gen are from Kekkaishi by Yellow Tanabe.
Weird gayness in recent episodes might be attributed to the animation company, Sunrise, and to shampoo that doesn't get rinsed out, and to older brothers that make odd comments because they have a thing for your would-be girlfriend (or not), and to chocolate cake and torn jackets.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the recent episodes--meaning I laughed every few minutes, except for the episode about Shigemori and Heisuke. Gen blushes SO much and keeps having these weird moments--usually with Yoshimori--that it's hard not to be entertained.
I read the titles of the two episodes that will be in the special and now I'm thinking, "No..." but titles are often misleading...
I think, that these last episodes, were cool, but Yoshi, is more worried about gen, than tokine, poor Honey XD....unmmm and the thing of the special, it would be nice, that happens what it says there, to give, the show, something, of a dramatic, thing for shishio...
But I loved the episode, with Heisuke, I was like NOOOOO, that old man cant die XD
I have noticed that the earlier episodes are all about Yoshimori and Tokine--how he does everything for her, to please or protect her--but that all the recent episodes are full of Yoshi and Toki talking about Gen and how Gen's feeling and what he's doing. Tokine just got thrown to the side, which I don't like because I actually like her.
As for Heisuke, he always just seemed too weird and too-ambitious for me. Just not my kind of character, I guess.
