WE'rE iN spACEeeEEEEEeEEee~! (Part 2)
The episode begins with some random girl getting PWNT by something.
KOZUE theorizes that AYA is spamming BULLET HELL (literally) and decides that she…
...doesn't want Pinocchio as a teacher
…will catch the EVIL newspaper reporter with a BUTTERFLY NET
Maya then talks to Fumiaki about how catching the Tengu may lead to Nostradamus’s key.
Kawashima notices that Fumiaki is spending too much time in the principal’s office so she…
...puts oranges in her hair
…falls in love with him ’cause he complimented her hair.
You are Fumiaki. What do you do?
a) Hook up with her
Scroll down to the very end of the post.
b) RUN THE HELL AWAY
c) EAT THE FREAKING GROUND
I’m not sure that’s a smart idea.
After RUNning THE HELL AWAY, you encounter your EVIL landlord. What do you do?
a) RUN THE HELL AWAY
b) RUN THE HELL AWAY
c) EAT YOUR FOOT
…sure, go do that.
You are at a phone booth. What do you do?
a) PRETEND IT’S TARDIS
YOU ARE DOCTOR WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoo
b) PHONE YOURSELF
c) EAT THE PHONE
You have chosen: PHONE YOURSELF. You are now LOLOLOLOLOL.
…You are at a curry shop. You buy curry. What do you do?
a) RUN THE HELL AWAY
That’s wasting money!
b) CURRY YOURSELF
c) EAT THE CURRY
A cute waitress appears! What do you do?
a) EAT YOUR CURRY
You eat your curry.
You don’t have any! They all fainted!
You’re a POOR NOOB.
d) RUN AWAY
YOU FIGHT! THE WAITRESS DIES IN A PILE OF BLOOD
YOU WIN THE GAME
BUT YOU FEEL SAD CAUSE SHE SAID
WOULD YOU LIKE TO REVERSE TIME?
The waitress, Nakagawa MIKAZE then invites you to RIDE IN HER CAR (innuendo not intended) but you are JEALOUS. What do you do?
a) Be jealous.
Proceed to next image.
b) EAT YOUR JEALOUSY
c) Sit in the car
Skip next image.
You are now jealous.
You decide to sit in the car.
Whoops, bad idea.
Would you like to reverse time?
Sure you would!
BUT YOU CAN’T.
Thus you lose and the game is over.
…Meanwhile, Maya investigates all the places where TENGU ATTACK. She goes into the ZOUZAN BUNKA(chou?) and spots Fumiaki and Mikaze SLACKING OFF AND NOT SHOOTING TENGU WITH CROSSBOWS. Thus she does that herself, but not before an EVIL SHADOW LOOMS BEHIND HER.
COSTS THIRTY TWO MANA POINTS
First of all, I finally figured out what that piano sonata always in the background was called, when my brother was playing it one day.
Can you guess?
…It’s the Waldstein Sonata. Does that sound familiar? Yes it does, because he was supposedly the founder of Occult Academy.
There’s where Waldstein was from – Beethoven (yes, Beethoven) dedicated his 21st Piano Sonata in C major, opus 53, to Count Ferdinand Ernst Gabriel von Waldstein.
Here’s what it sounds like (though you should know, because it’s played in the anime).
In other words, Waldstein had less to do with the Occult than to do with trying to kill Napoleon – which he had a lot to do with (note trying). It’s a random name from a random sonata that Anime no Chikara just decided to use.
There’s probably some spiritual/occultish meaning behind it, but I’m not going to figure that out; might as well leave it to Sapphire Pyro again :P
Something that’s been somewhat bothering me – the Vice-Principal Kawashiro. She’s definitely, DEFINITELY thinking of something. Would it be to hide the Nostradamus’s Key? If that’s so, is she an alien?
That would certainly make sense – with Jun’ichiro finding out about the key, killing him would work, and faking a recording of him chanting a spell would make it seem like they (the aliens) didn’t know anything about his death. After Maya comes, Kawashiro started to somewhat oppose her being principal to stop her from finding the key, and specifically inquired with Fumiaki about what he was doing in the principal’s office.
If before Kawashiro was suspecting Fumiaki of doing something, now she knows – because of Fumiaki suddenly changing the topic. If he had not changed the topic, Kawashiro probably would not have suspected as much, but the sudden change confirms that Fumiaki and Maya are working about something that they cannot even tell the Vice-Principal.
And what’s something you can’t tell the Vice-Principal but something really, really important? Maybe like, getting Nostradamus’s Key?
With that, Kawashiro has her answer, because asking further would make Fumiaki suspicious about her. Thus, she did her random stuff so that Fumiaki wouldn’t know that she knows that Fumiaki and Maya are doing weird stuff, knowing that Fumiaki would reject her and thus move away.
If she’s not an alien, her motives are still extremely unknown. In that case, her reaction to Fumiaki’s comment is pretty weird – which means she has to have some strong motive to question what Maya is doing. The fact that her bodyguards wear sunglasses add even more to that; all cool people wear sunglasses, and all final bosses are cool.
However, it seems that the main plot thread is whether or not Mikaze is actually a TRAP (no, not that kind of trap). Seems to me that it’s pretty possible seeing the great dissimilarities between her and her grandma (employer, maybe? I sorta forgot), her attaching to Fumiaki without much conflict, and her general awesomeness.
As many people said, it’s “too good to be true, with some interesting longer theories as well. Then there are those who think it’s too obvious to be true; sorta reverse psychology, I guess.
Although if she is really a tengu in disguise, for some reason I think that won’t be revealed until the end – as in, the very, very end, as the final final epic boss. As you all know, final bosses are introduced quite a while in advance – and if her tenguness is related to that glowing red eye-bat thingy, that means that the entire plotline is about hunting tengu.
If you don’t understand what I mean, basically they’ve introduced the final boss in the first episode, and they’ll beat it in the last episode. Mikaze (IMO) is either the owner of the Nostradamus’s key (or even, the Nostradamus’s key; Rukia’s Hougyoku much?), or, some random character who either becomes comedic foil (but we’ve enough of that) or dies dramatically in Fumiaki’s arms (and Kawashiro’s the final boss). There are only those options.
Of course if none of those come true you can be sure that Anime no Chikara is conspiring against me :<
Finally, to clarify some things about how Mikaze knows Fumiaki’s real name – “Fumiaki” is spelt with kanji as 文明, which can also be pronounced as “Bunmei”. Thus, she basically pronounces his name differently because she reads the kanji differently.
Thus concludes the one-week-late (once again, sigh) post of Occult Academy.
^ BAD APPLE. SCREENSAVA MODO.

You have died. Would you like to try again?
So, I was at Mushy’s house today, we did history for a lot of the day so he didn’t have any time to make a post. However, we will give you a short fact about Beethoven.
His fame as a pianist in Vienna gained in many influential friends such as Prince Lichnovisky, Prince Lobkowitz and Count Razumovsky.
Now, I’m sure everybody who reads this post will remember 3 of his best friends. :D
