Wind ~ A Breath of Heart 12 - Gonna Need a Nicer Boat

In this starkly intense episode of Wind, Minamo's feelings of grief, jealousy, and rejection boil over into a concoction most perilous. I get the feeling this is what happens when you trip a few flags for other girls by doing nice things for them, while generally/half-heartedly heading down one particular game route. Luckily, things turn out a little better for this Makoto than for that other one. Or maybe this Makoto's results are just as good as the other one's were, until they weren't.


Once again, this episode and all others after 09 have been renumbered in my release to remove decimal/fractional values. Although I'm numbering it 12, this episode is listed on AniDB and elsewhere as episode 10.4, "Tell me your Feelings......"

My Wife is a High School Girl 12 - Fight for your right to Party!

Sadly I can't achieve Sakura's goal, but I can bring you the penultimate episode of My Wife is a High School Girl. Part A features an argument over messy white liquids being spilled in the wrong place, while Part B features a standard near-fatal minor respiratory ailment causing mass chaos and a comedy of errors. However, both parts set the stage for the crisis that will unfold at last in the final episode.

Wind ~ A Breath of Heart 11 - The Final Sacrifice

After several false starts and frame shifts that I'm not sure I ever needed to do, I present you episode 11 of Wind ~ A Breath of Heart, which is generally listed as episode 10 on database sites. Things get real this time around, and somebody's on the ultimate chopping block with no Rowsdower around to save them. Some of the scene connections and transitions don't exactly make sense, but I assume there's some game information I'm missing out on here. At some point, there will be a v2 of my ep 10, though it will only change the title of the next episode at the very end of the video.

My Wife is a High School Girl 11 - The Toxicity of Our Masculinity

For the first half of this episode, we have a stalker with a Showa-era mentality going after Asami, and some unwitting pointers from Kyousuke just make matters worse. Then we return to the school social setting for part B, with some actual plot threads from previous episodes surfacing again. The school field trip, among other things, brings a bathtime fanservice scene that is still no different from the TV broadcast. Thank goodness this isn't a recent SHAFT anime, or we could be looking at additional steam for our viewing displeasure.

Wind ~ A Breath of Heart 10 - The Toxicity of Our City

The script for this episode exhibits the peculiar property of having the least dialogue of any episode so far, but the largest total amount of lines. Thank goodness the fine folks at GFE took care of a whole lot of frame-by-frame typesetting. At any rate, I've decided to renumber the remaining episodes of Wind to remove fractional/decimal episode numbers. So, this episode is better known as episode 9.5, the first of the DVD-only episodes that were translated by Shinsen-Subs rather than Static/Keep. Minamo's father confronts Hikari about the more sinister side of Kazune City, and, well... not a whole lot else happens, I guess?
