Last night before bed I told myself a cute little story about Haruna and Mihashi in which Haruna is acting like he's going to get all cuddly while they're riding the train but instead he tickles the hell out of Mihashi and Mihashi ends up spazzing and ... ok wait, it's screencap time.

I took 95 screencaps. Here are 30 of them. In B-Movie form. I'm feeling pretty good about this one, which means it's probably incomprehensible to everybody else ^^;;

"Coach Momoe! The.. there's more going on at Tosei than just baseball! It.. it's... aliens!"

"What? Aliens? Chiyo! Chiyo, what do you mean, aliens?"


What happened to Chiyo! What terror awaits in the following screencaps! And was that some serious GL we were just watching? STAY TUNED TO FIND OUT.
(being opening credits)

"No, eheh, I always stand like this. I'm not trying to hide anything! Really! This is how I always stand!!"

It was during this embarrassing time of a young man's day that the unthinkable happened... and I'm not talking about an accidental boner.

At that point, Mihashi's eyes rolled back into his head and an unfamiliar disembodied voice came out of his mouth, saying "THE ONE CALLED ABE MUST NOT FOR TO BE EATING THE LAST DONUT, LEST YOUR WORLD PERISH."

So Abe, who doesn't watch enough b-movies to understand the implications, figured Mihashi was just trying to score the last donut. The head-crushing forced the alien beings out of Mihashi's brain, but not completely...

Mihashi did not remember what had transpired while he had been possessed by aliens. Confused and abandoned by his peers, he doesn't notice the strange cravings emerging from within.

Suddenly, the desire to consume human flesh overwhelms Mihashi, and he lunges at his closest friend! Empowered by the alien parasite's superhuman strength, the hapless redshirt Tajima is quickly and quietly infected...

Meanwhile, all seems well at baseball practice. The guys have noticed that Tajima and Mihashi are tardy, but this is not uncharacteristic.

Mihashi has gone to the washroom to brush his teeth, having just found out that Tajima wasn't actually a regular bather.
When he looks up to make sure all the evidence is gone, he hears a voice inside his head "Look closely! This is the face of our enemy!"

What sinister purpose do aliens have on our planet! And what part, if any, do these girls have to play in it!
Tune in next time, where these and other questions might be answered!

Mihashi isn't the only human who's been affected. Chiyo is unaware that her senpai has more than friendship on her mind.

"Just kiss me, Shinooka! Become one of us! Everything is better this way!"

Luckily for Chiyo, an alert is being broadcast to all alien parasites which interrupts her special moment with her senpai. The alien presence has been detected! Prepare for battle!

The warning has been broadcast on all media: Alien parasites have invaded Earth! They plan to use human hosts to infiltrate our defenses! Beware of anyone acting strange - the alien could even be your best friend!

Izumi is a little excited about the prospect of battling aliens.
"I've always dreamed of becoming a space warrior with a space gun and defending the earth from alien attack!"

To which Tajima replies, "But you'd need a weapon that could kill the alien without killing the host, and in order to do that you'd have to either have a microprecise laser or some kind of DNA recognition weapon..."

The flood of big words and scientific concepts scares Izumi and Sakaeguchi...

And that's when Izumi realizes the truth: Tajima is an alien!

Mihashi, meanwhile, is sure that everyone can tell he's got a parasite. If Abe finds out, he'll be so angry!

He panics, and inspects every inch of his body to make sure there are no external signs of his condition. And all the while, a voice in his head is repeating "Abe... is our ENEMY."

"Mihashi, put your clothes back on, you can't SEE the alien parasites! They're internal!"
"Sorry sorry, I'm just so scared!"
Nice cover, M.

To prepare for the coming battle, the aliens employ the use of isometric excercises.

Mrs. Mihashi is concerned that her son is holding hands with boys that might be aliens, but Mrs. Hanai is convinced it's all a hoax

Chiyo is trapped! How can she escape? How can she avoid the fate of so many others? And how many have already been infected?!

These guys??

These guys??

Hanai says "Can we just end this stupid b-movie before my mom puts me in a Star Trek outfit?"

Tomorrow: I swear to stop spazzing Hamada long enough to at least inform you of the fate of the Earth!! And I'll read the internets.

But, I really ADORE Hamada. FRLZ WUB. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE. He's just the greatest character evar in any series or anything. I have to sleep now.
I'm not insanedrop trou!

::laughs and laughs and laughs some more::
This must be the alien-themed week.
Mihashi jumping for Tajima's flesh was priceless. What a shot.
I had so much fun with everyone's faces, starting from Hamada. Ultra cute in his winter uniform. I love when Hanai recognizes his merits. I wonder how he is deceiving the team, I hope it will be explained in the manga.

I was JUST spazzing Hamada in his winter uniform! It's not going to be a very comprehensible post, the next one ^^;;
I've also been wondering what it is they're referring to in that last Hamada scene. My best guess right now is it has somthing to do with his past, because of some things later characters have said. I should go re-read Lovely Megane Dance Queen's scene and decipher all the words. I fail things =_=;;

Or it's just he's trying to make everyone think he's heterosexual. But his ex-boyfriends know the truth. (he has to be single for the next episode so he can get together with Junta!)

I am looking forward to it! I missed the Hamada spazzing in this post of yours (although Iciak made up with her Tosei Spazz, oh dear, the aftermath is as much fun as the actual episode). I'll check the flist asap.

Lovely Megane Dance Queen? Ok, am still on chapter 31. MUST catch up with the manga..

The thing that makes me more suspicious is his reply that "Their heart is too pure" to be tainted with the recolections of where he went wrong. I don't know.

Get together with Junta?!!! XD Whyever would that happen?

Yes! Catch up with the manga! XD (sorry, I thought you were up thru the most recent chapter)

I have to admit that I feel really good about myself whenever you confirm that I've translated something correctly in my mind.
I just hope it's not High Drama like in soap operas. Eugh I just thought of some horrible High Drama that would make me quit the series >< Let's hope there's no High Drama.
(But I secretly do think it's that he's a homo XD )

My plan is to make people believe in Hama+Junta. So that maybe one day on Oofuri Search websites there'll be an option to search 浜準 !!

Oh? You mean like the "pure hearts" thing?
So do I, I hope it is something to go "Awww" (like the teammates when Mihashi talks about how he couldn't make friends in his new school), but not to have wangst for the rests. Wouldn't it be could if he was the first to admit it, and thus opened the door for the whole team to stop using the hand-holding as an excuse and go openly to date each other? *_____*

"Preparation for the beach"? ;D

I doubt the truth will be that Hamada is gay, but it would be mad awesome. I'm going back to ignoring that scene (like I did the first time I read it in the manga) because thinking of the possibilities for High Drama scares me ._.

I'm adding that to my interests. And I just realized I can remove the manga cover for vol 5 and make them kiss.

Hey, but you didn't add "Hamada" yet :D

I just went back and trasnlated a really difficult (for me) part in a later chapter. It's difficult because they're not talking about sports or what awesome rappers they are, and those are my areas of expertise ^^;;;

I hope you get a chance to catch up with the manga. If I said anything that was spoilery, (I really tried not to!) you have full permission to tell me the most surprising spoiler in all of Slam Dunk or ES21 or both. (I'm on vol 1 of SD and vol 5 or so of ES21)

Don’t worry, I don’t think you have spoiled me so far. And now that I have caught up with E21 (8 hours reading yesterday!), I am ready for Oofuri.

Maybe E21 is not as realistic and sweet as Oofuri, but the games, specially if you can read them in a row, that is, in tankoubons and without interruptions from week to week or book to book, is EXTREMELY EXCITING and HEART-ATTACK inducing.

I spent one hour crying yesterday out of excitement, I was such a mess I couldn’t post or write or comment or whatever. Just have dinner and watch another movie that also made me cry but I was ready for that...

Looking forward to learn about Hamada’s past ::ties hachimaki on forehead to read as fast as possible:: Next weekend is a long weekend. “Aim for Oofuri 46” marathon, ON!!

I spent one hour crying yesterday out of excitement

I feel like that about TOQ. And I like it XD Sometimes I stop reading right at the most cliffhangery part just so I can enjoy going "OH NOES!!! I MUST FIND OUT HIS FATE!!" for a few hours ^^ It's like a Peter Jackson film, in manga form.

I will catch up with ES21, but only at the pace at which the english ones are being released. I'm way behind, even for NA releases.

Good luck in your Oofuri reading! It goes faster if you skip everything Shiga says ;D

OMG SO DO I!!!! I leave the page open, be it on paper or on the screen, and look at it, let the feelings invade me, think about what everything means, cherish the uncertainties of the next page, and then...::turn the page/click next::

That is why my crying was long, because I welcomed it as part of the experience. Manga is not just reading a story to see how it turns out and ends. It is about enjoying everything involved, the efforts of the people who put so much work and feeling (in case they have, unlike certain overdone examples) for us to FEEL.

You should totally read E21 in Japanese! But well, I know you are not that big on E21. I just tell you that the games get increasingly exciting, it’s not just parody and far-fetched situations. Although the spirit of the series is short of realistic, but it has its many human moments.

I’ll follow your advice regarding Shiga :D It also goes faster if I read faster all of Abe’s overanalizing. But I want to understand everything, that is why, I *can’t* . I want to learn why they do what they do.

Oh wow I thought I was the only one who did that! Sometimes I even leave the house before turning the page or clicking next, to force myself to not get to the answer yet XD

I went back and read up thru vol 7 of ES21, starting back from vol 2 so I could remember what was going on, and I think the thing that put me off was when the opponents weren't quite human. Lizardmen and heiroglyphs, that's just weird. I persevered and got to some more human elements that should be interesting. But, if I tried reading it in Japanese (which is logistically problematic anyway) I'd still be on vol 3 or something ^^;; Maybe when I catch up to what's available in English I'll try to get raws.

OH NOEZ THE EARTH. D8 Isn't the internal conflict over Abe too much for Mihashi's brain? He may break down and go berserk.

The Hamada scene you have in your current default icon was SO MUCH WIN. And I still don't feel the supposed chemistry, but I loved his interaction with Izumi.

Yeah I think Mihashi is going insane. It remains to be seen if he can save the Earth or not. (But most likely it'll be Hamada and Tosei saving the earth.)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who just isn't getting the HamaIzumi vibe! Plus I'm already completely sold on Hamada+Junta.

Man, I am amazed at your story telling skills. If I didn't know any better, I would have thought that this all actually happened. LOL! XD

I need to go watch this episode. It looks like a good one. ^^

It's tha best episode so far. Probably because of the outrageous amounts of HAMADA that are in my later post XD
