"Tsubasa Chronicle" ep 23

Subject: Noir
Well, this week was certainly something on the "WTF-o-meter". Lots of layers being peeled back, only to reveal more puzzle pieces.

I can't really say I'm following all the different angles of this very well, but at least the moments themselves are quite involving. The end of this episode in particular, obviously. There was something behind that sequence that made me think "Someone here is really, really a fan of their relationship" -- it had a strong, almost loving attention to the nuanced details of the moment. Simple that it was; I think it was mostly in the timing and subtle movements. But it communicated that little something extra to me.

And to be left on a bit of a nailbiter cliffhanger, and with a whole week before there's resolution? Well, it's no "MADLAX" in the suspense department, but I'm looking forward to seeing where this is going.

*Nods* I agree...even if I know what will happen after this,I couldn't help but be completely captured by the moment,being also a big fan of their relationship..and I was even more surprised because in the manga Sakura slept all the time,so Bee Train changed this and even did a wonderful job..what could I ask more? ^_^
