We're talking Anime and we're up to episode 11 of Blue Seed titled "Irritating! Jealous?! Unbelievable!!" Sakura Yamakazi is back and her presence is the last thing Momiji needs! What did I think of the episode?Well I'll tell ya!
Original Air Date: December 14, 1994, English Air Date: December 11, 1999
Episode Deals with Fall Out Of Momiji getting ‘Kiss of Life’ from Kusanagi and her still having mixed emotions, she’s been avoiding him for some time, running away and feeling like an idiot. This isn’t helped when Sakura Yamazaki transfers to her school, renewing their rivalry from episode eight. While it is clear Momiji does love Kusanagi, her feelings are really all over the place, and since Sakura has the hots for him as well (implying Momiji isn’t real competition) that just drive our hero further up the wall. Add into this her wanting to be able to fight the Aragami when Kusanagi and Sakura are doing so, and you see that Momiji doesn’t want to be useless. Her Mitama doesn’t activate here to give her flight, possibly due to Kusanagi being restrained, but she still save the day
Sakura’s presence is justified as she came across a student named Reiko, dazed and totally out of it, after learning from Reiko’s parents that a seal on a rock that kept an giant Aragami spider locked away was broken, she takes up the case. She is oblivious to the fact she’s transferred to Momiji’s school and is more concerned with her ‘perfect record’ of dealing with Aragami. We do learn that her skills are intended to deal with all things paranormal including exorcisms. The ending of her vowing to stick around when she is left hanging in a tree indicates she’ll be a thorn in both Kusanagi and Momiji’s sides, particular since Kusanagi does not seem as interested in her when compared to Momiji.
