My first happy memory of PoT was Inui's juice. Episode 9. Ryoma improves in the anime. He cries by the end, cries real tears while he cries out "BUCHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!" The problem was the colorful display in the animation, post-dinosaurs and all. They climbed rainbows and smelled of drug abuse. But he kind of tendered up. Not in the manga. Konomi was merciless and Ryoma was evolution-less.
"HEY OISHI. 185 EPISODES FROM NOW, THAT WOMAN WILL BE WEARING A SWIMSUIT AND SITTING ON YOUR FACE, JIGGLING. AND NOT IN A NICE WAY."
::cringes intensely from the sole memory::
I hated that. HATED. With capitals and all.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, the meeeeeeeemoooories ::insert some Barbra Streissand::
Wow, I didn't even remember that was episode 9 lol. But you're right, the anime had a good ending for Ryouma. I guess I'm still hurt by Konomi's ending. I remember I really loved the anime ending, even though it got kinda psychedelic. I don't remember what my first good memory of the series was. Maybe I'll remember when I see it XD
I didn't HATE that part, but it was unpleasant to watch o_O But I knew if they were gonna show that they were gonna show Inui getting panced, and that was something I thought was sad about the on-air anime, no nudie shots. Lol. HOW STRANGE.
