Novel for episode 11. )

I just started episode 12, but during Kenzan's phone call, that line isn't included. Huh.

I also went back to the first novel and Shouma simply says, "How could you say that in front of our sister?" in the first chapter.

Weird. Why are both lines in the anime and not in the novels?

The novels do harp on about "the twins being nothing alike," but that's really not much to go on with foreshadowing in comparison. I wonder why they made that choice, assuming it's going somewhere.

Episode 10 novel post / rambling / WAAAAAH WHY WASN'T THIS IN THE ANIME WAAAAAAAH. )

I don't feel like I even have to say Ikuhara is my FAVORITE FOREVER, and I do love this show, but the novels just make me consistently frustrated with the anime. I've been kind of rolling my eyes at Ikuhara's, "You can read the novels first because the anime will surpass your imagination!" because...no. I shouldn't need to be relying on the novels this much to understand what everyone is feeling. And when the novels have made me cry four times in the past three chapters, while the anime has only gotten tears out of me once, you're dropping the ball somewhere. :/
