The showdown we've all been waiting for
Princess Tutu rewatch is continuing, and I'm bringing the good news to Livejournal!
The Pique-Ahiru rivalry from last episode has calmed down, and we have a new crisis to face, as Rue has been injured, and can't take her place in the grand performance to mark the end of the school Fine Arts Week. There's gonna be a competition, and the lucky winner gets to dance with Mytho in Rue's place! Everyone's absolutely thrilled by this, except for Pique, who's back on Team Fakir, Lillie, who's in it for the drama, and Ahiru, who's utterly confused.
Except, as always, all is not as it seems, as it's revealed Rue was only faking her injury, and the winner of the competition is going to be sacrificed for the crow-father! Will Princess Tutu be able to save the flower-loving Freya from Mytho? Tune in next time, same tutu-time, same tutu-channel!
This show cutting it's second season into half episodes is kinda confusing as well.
As part of our anime viewing, we've also watched some of Gochuumon, the rabbit coffee anime,'s second season, which has been out for a couple years now but we never claimed to be with the times. Interestingly, the episode we saw today also involved ballet and a school Fine Art festival, which was a weird coincidence. Today coffee-based slice of life, tomorrow all anime shall be ballet based!
