Maria Sama ga Miteru Season 4: Episode 12

Too late the hero? Red roses suck. Yellow roses rock.

Okay, this is what the episode was... A repeat performance of the old "find-my-card" game plus Touko's cruelly wrenching pseudo-drama which does not get any sympathy from me. Symbolisms dot the story, such as Touko's search for Yumi's card in a small room, which reflects her narrow state of mind. Though she apparently is wider down there (see episode 11) than up in her head, she took away most of the airtime with flashbacks and rushed to the outside world after an epiphany. I'm getting tired of the Red family and this must just end. Too much poorly made "drama". Getting tired of Touko is an understatement.

Ever since the previous seasons, I said that the Yellow roses are my favorite among the three because there are a lot of unspoken bonds among them (Yoshino and Rei) that transcends spoken words. It showed today, as it just oozed out of Rei and Yoshino's actions than their words. Hehehe, I thought Rei really had Yoshino's card and was surprised at her face wich had "meh, Yoshino's card" written all over it. It's kinda hard to explain in words but if you saw their backstory (Yoshino's heart operation arc, Rei leaving the rosary to her in the hospital)Their undramatic approach as soeurs) then you'll get what I am trying to say. It's like they know each other too well that they are already beyond the passion stage. Damn, why aren't they the main characters?

So Touko opens the door and unless she has the card with her, she's gonna get more flak from me. Touko comes across as an immature bitch who needs to grow up. I'm sure that leaving her blindfolded, gagged and chained inside a barracks full of Russian Soldiers would do more to make her grow up, even more so than having the Jigsaw killer abduct her and put her on his magnificent contraption and making her chop a limb if she wants to escape death.

In any case, this episode (and this season) attacts unfavorable impressions vis-a-vis the first "Find-my-card and eat-my-chocolate" event. While the previous one was a hilarious laugh trip when Sei was still around (Damn, I remember the good old days) . This one is just a cacophony of the inferior actions of spoiled, immature babies who need at least one more year in middle school.

Thingle Out.
