Manaria/Mysteria Friends Episode 8: Showtime at the Academy

This was a nice episode for a different reason than expected.

Anne aroused by Grea's beauty.jpg

I don’t blame Anne for being aroused in this scene at all. Wow was Grea beautiful. Even more than usual.

Not much to say this time. It’s the traditional School Festival episode. We got brief glimpses of the stands and stuff along with the students participating in the upcoming play.

Most of the episode was about Grea being super nervous. She had good reason. Besides her below average social skills she also wasn’t used to wearing elegant dresses…basically a princess who felt uncomfortable dressing like a stereotypical princess. She thought Anne was a better fit for the role. Anne was like “The people are excited to see you in this role. It’ll be alright. You got this babe.” Immediately after Grea said her stomach was hurting, prompting Anne to rush over to her book and find a healing spell. Again Grea was just super nervous.

As showtime drew closer Grea still couldn’t calm down. Anne had a magical idea. It worked.

We got a preview of what their performance would be. I’m pretty sure it was also them reassuring each other through their characters and themselves. Also that preview turned out to be all we got because someone else got the spotlight this episode.

I hope the show has an OST because I want the full uninterrupted version of Hanna’s song. It was SO GOOD! Our heroines were blown away by her greatness to the point that Anne got a tummy ache herself.

The Post-ED scene this time showed Anne, Grea and Hanna the morning of the show. Not much to say there. A simpler episode compared to other recent ones but still quite effective.

Captain Lou adorable as always.

I guess I have a soft spot for couples like these two. I love yuri so much.

    Woohoooo. I found the Performance of Hanna amazing but sadly some parts were inaudible. She sang something like “Die neue Welt wird umarmt von dem sich ausbreitendem, freien Himmel” and etc. Tried to write the whole text of the song down but some parts were just sang to quietly and the music was too loud. But yeah. I enjoyed this Episode. (Oh and woah. Grea as Princess and Anne as her Prince. This isn’t a coincidence. This is/was fate.)

      Hopefully there will be a soundtrack that includes the full song without interruption.
      So she sang in German. Very cool.

      We’re almost there. The destined sleepover is upon us. I know it is.

    The dialogue between Anne and Grea says much more than meets the eye. A huge applause for the creators of this show.
    And by the way, the real couple looks wonderful!

    Hanna’s performance is amazing (as expected since she’s voiced by Nana Mizuki, who also voiced the other half of the legendary NanoFate) and Prince Anne having a stomach ache while watching the performance after calming her nervous Princess Grea is quite ironic and funny.

    Well, when you’ve got one of the greatest singers in Japan (and maybe the world) voicing a character in your show, it would be practically criminal to not give her at least one chance to sing, wouldn’t it?

    Grea looks beautiful in that dress (Anne’s “you look like a piece of fine art” is well stated), and I really wish we’d had a chance to see her and Anne together in the play. I’m going to assume that them ending up in those roles is because their classmates ship them together as much as we do.

    Such a cute episode. I can feel Anne arouseness (is this even a word?) through the monitor. I always love the girl prince and the princess in a play. And it’s not even the all-girls school. I bet the students in that school are aware of Grea and Anne relationship. The play still continues for the next episode right? I mean I wanna see the play with Lou in it. She was so nervous but Hanna’s song calmed her down. And yeah, that was a song from heaven.

      “Anne’s arousal”. You were close.

      It’s highly likely they are aware.

      Maybe but the Episode 9 title suggests otherwise.

      Apparently Hanna’s voiced by Nana Mizuki so that’s why.

  10. Ah, even if different, so much greatness in one episode!

    Anne & Grea being adorable and G.R.E.A.T as always, and definitely so much into each other that their classmates must have put them in those roles on purpose…good classmates.

    And Hanna (Mizuki Nana) singing! It truly was a wonderful song, and sung so well!
