[Amanchu! Advance] Episode 6 everyone's impressions

Episode 6
"The Story of a Halloween Night's Dream"

When you realize you will never get a kiss from Pikari

If I can instead get a beer with Mato-sensei, that's fine too.

I'm loving the what's happening with Teko and Pikari, but I find myself relating to Mato-chan-sensei much more as an adult long out of high school.

I think the contrast is nice, because as a viewer, you can enjoy Teko and Pikari's adventures, but turning to your own life you could have that same bittersweet Mato-sensei feeling has.

I mean she finally met the black mermaid and it looks like it didn't phase her. I wonder if it'll be something specific that eroded her spirit or just a matter of age.

Damn Teko got jealous there. You go Teko, fight for your girlfriend! I'm rooting for you!

I really liked Jealous Teko

How does Teko always look amazing???

These girls are somehow even gayer tan in Season 1 but I am also kinda excited for possible Sensei x Sensei???

And a new ship in the next episode?

Theyre pushing the limits for what can be considered friend-love because of the genre and audience. Any more mature and they'd be scissoring underwater.

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality...

Open your eyes, Look up to the skies and see
I'm just a poor (non-discrete gender) kid, I need no sympathy

This running gag was the best

Okay, this lucid dreaming thing is cute, and theYuri charm is off the charts with this season, but am I the only one who wants more scuba diving?

Learning some of the techniques is a high point for the show, at least for me.

So fricking cute today all around! I for one loved Pikari's constant little mischievous fang.

I've always loved Teko's little inner monologues, and I really liked this line from her today: "I realized that dreams always go hand-in-hand with reality." Teko, the professional dreamer, is bringing that to reality, and she seems to always have the best dreams.

Katori-sensei getting real again at the end. I hope we get a full arc of hers.

This was a good episode.

Anyone else remember when this show was about diving?

They just spent the previous episode mostly underwater…

≫Anyone else remember when this show was about diving?

I usually think about the hook of a show to be tangential to what makes a series special or endearing. Sort of how the movie Titanic isn't about the steamship, it's about the romance between Jack and Rose. Amanchu on the surface a show about ocean diving, but it's really about learning to find that infinite source of fun in ourselves, our relationships, and our seemingly banal circumstances.

I thought the shared lucid dreaming stuff was kind of out of left field, but the more I think about it, I find it fitting thematically with scuba diving. In both, you're in this out-of-the-ordinary environment in your own self-contained presence. It's that feeling of freedom to explore in a wonderful and surreal place.

That was a pleasant episode. I'm liking the lucid dreaming idea because it's Teko's turn to show Pikari a fantastic world instead of the other way around.

I was a bit confused about how much of this episode was a dream though since the dream kinda starts halfway through the race win scene. It seems like they skipped a few scenes where they decide to go to the spa in to simulate that feeling of discovering you're in a dream.

The description of next week's ep reminds me of that Urusei Yatsura movie directed by Oshii.

I'm not sure what Teko was at that festival, a crimson princess or a green eyed monster. The yuri was definitely on the rise throughout that episode. Though I didn't think anything could out cute that yuri, but that little one asking for a kiss was so adorable.

Lots of nice outfits even on the background characters like that thr guys dressed as Jack Sparrow and Aladdin. Though that outfit Senpai was wearing, I've seen enough materials of Japanese origin to know where that's going.
