The relationship between Ash and Eiji takes center focus this episode, first by accounting the distinctive differences between the two characters, then building each up individually before churning their divergences into intimate camaraderie.
For all the seedy fascination its drug plot demands, this show keeps plugging along because of its characters. The heroes are so likable (even when they're doing awful things!), the villains despicable but (at least in Yut Lung's case) fun to watch, and the relationships between all of them so strong. Nowhere is this more obvious than its central pairing, which this episode seems set to explore. First, in a hilarious sequence at the beginning, we see the wildly different way that Ash treats Eiji from everyone else around him. Ash's gang is terrified of his temper, enough to refuse to wake him up from his two-hour nap on time. This surprises Eiji, who is used to the softer side of Ash. The gang members are likewise surprised when Eiji literally slaps Ash awake, and their boss reacts with little more than grumbling and this priceless face. Later, in a conversation between Ibe and Max, Max thinks it's curious that Ash and Eiji have gravitated toward each other when they seem so different. Ibe sees that Eiji has brought out the part of himself that's in Ash. Ash can only really act like a teenager when he's around Eiji.
Regardless, we get to see Ash be vulnerable in Eiji's arms. This makes it all the weirder in the later part of the episode when he transforms back into his precocious, super-hacker, genius mob boss self. At least the spyware is one of the more believable technology updates. (Though it begs the question, if Ash has had spyware on Dino's computer this whole time, why wasn't he aware of some of the mob's other plans People put everything on computers these days, after all.) The theme of the episode seems to be how Ash can show so many different faces to so many different people. With some, he's the criminal mastermind, steepling his hands Gendo Ikari-style as he walks them through his latest airtight scheme. With Eiji, he's a normal, sad, hurt teenage boy, who can joke and sob and confess silly childish fears like pumpkins. It's the many sides to Ash that make this story so fascinating, giving viewers the hope that he can find a more authentic self underneath all that trauma one day.
Episode 11 dedicates a considerable amount of time to show us how Ash and Eiji settle into living alone together. When Max offers to take Eiji away, Ash refuses, and we know that Eiji will be moving in with him in the apartment he buys towards the end of the episode.
Like the title of this blog says, I'm going to list all thethings I am looking forward to the most. Thatmeans that I've had to choose between various scenes from the Mangaand picturing how they would be as an adapted anime scene, and thatgoes for all scenes. The cute ones, the funny ones, the sad ones,the weird ones, etc. I'll do a top...6 version. Here are the ones I've chosen for the tenthand eleventh episode.
To start off with, the climax of the episode was the song. I knew it was gonna be good, but what I didn't know was that it wasgonna be SO heartbreaking. The song, the sounds of the instruments,the lyrics. Boy the lyrics...
I'm not even done with episode 9 but I needed to post thelyrics to his song. I kid you not I was legitimately sobbingwhen I heard it. (Also we got some amazingly pure Mafuyu x Yuki.I'm so happy with the way this anime adaptation came out. It makesme so happy.)
Next is Ritsuka Uenoyama. With a lot of debating, I have decidedthat he reminds me of Yuri Plisetsky in the later episodes ofseason one. They both have unconventional ways to show their loveto those they care about but it somehow gets across. They're alsoknown to lash out at times...
Ever since the 7th episode of Given has aired, I couldn't help,but speculate about Kedama, or is their a another dog that isn'tmentioned yet So, this is my opinion on what I'm analyzing fromthe anime and the manga, so far.
The song was first introduced in the second episode, \"LikeSomeone In Love\" and was also sung later on by Mafuyu in episodethree, Somebody Else and is sung by Ritsuka Uenoyama in episodesix, Fluorescent Adolescent...
The faces all the characters can make are absolutely priceless,and I will now give a few example as to what had me drop deadbecause it was so funny that I repeated that scene 10-15 timesbefore I continued watching the rest of the episode.
The episode did start emotionally but then it turned into acomedy shortly after. When Akihiko arrives at the school whereHaruki is waiting, Haruki gets pretty p*ssed jealous. This part hadme died laughing, priceless reactions and especially that face, Idied.
I cannot wait... Well I have to because when an anime startsairing, I always decide to save the episodes that I look mostforward to, for friday nights where I can sit back and watch someamazing anime and well, here we go again. I am looking most forwardto the songs, Mafuyu's voice, and all the incoming BL moments aswell as drama scenes, I love it.

One program focused on the relationship between China and Laos. China is helping Laos develop by building large dams on the Mekong River, which runs from China to Vietnam. These dams benefit both China and Laos by providing electricity to both countries. Other help comes from Chinese investors who open banana plantations in Laos, which provide enough hard currency for many Laotians to build their own homes. However, the plantations also create polluted water and the dams interfere with fish life cycles as well as regional water supplies.
The Philippines episode was about a construction worker living and working in a major city. Urban renewal was about to force him to move to the countryside, where he would face an expensive and dangerous commute.. As in the United States, in other countries wealth is built on the struggle of working families. 59ce067264
