Aloha Y’all!

Elizabeth:

As mewsual, we’ll be chatting about science fiction, fantasy & horror movies, TV, books, toys ‘n stuff!

Mary Nyan:

This month, our producer Mike will be joining us for the entire session!

Mike:

Since the girls are still recovering from all that Trick ‘r Eating they did for Halloween, I thought I’d help ’em out with The Mew this month, starting with-

Trick-or-Eat! or While the Cats A-Weigh

Elizabeth:

Hey! We have high metabolisms, y’know!

Yvonne:

But we sure got lots of candy, nya!

Jeannie:

Between Halloween and the State Fair we made quite a food haul! That fried dough is sooo good!

Mike:

I didn’t go to the fair this year, but blackberry is usually my favorite on the fried dough.

Elizabeth:

There were many interesting new flavors at the fair this year… my favorite was the nilla creme!

Mary Nyan:

Ummm… I’d hafta say the chocolate sauce.

Jeannie:

I think… I think I liked… I liked the nana puddin topping the best!

Yvonne:

Strawberry glaze- oh now I’m hungry again, nya!

Jeannie:

When aren’t you?

Elizabeth:

Mi-ike…?

Mike:

(sigh) But I already got y’all a tub of shrimp!

Elizabeth:

We thought that was for the pre Mew rehearsal snack!

Mike:

Oh all right I’ll go get another snack tray!

(all four catgirls in unison):

Arigatoo gozaimasu!

Mary Nyan:

So what will the next topic be today, nya?

Jeannie:

Lizzy won the coin toss so she gets to decide.

Elizabeth:

Let’s jump right into the-

DVD Reviews!

warning: there are potential plot spoilers ahead for

The Paul Lynde Halloween Special, Count Dracula, Black Sheep,

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and Sayonara Jupiter

Elizabeth:

I thought purr-haps we could just go on to this month’s DVD reviews! I planned to review Vol. 3 of anime series, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. What else we got?

Mary Nyan:

I have a review of The Paul Lynde Halloween Special!

Jeannie:

My review is of Count Dracula, starring Louis Jourdan!

Yvonne:

I saw Black Sheep and Sayonara Jupiter, nya!

Elizabeth:

Well, then you go first, Vonny!

Yvonne:

‘Kay! It’s about a New Zealand sheep rancher who’s been conducting animal experiments and has created killer mutant lambs that bite people and turn them into were-sheep, nya. The unscrupulous rancher’s brother come home to the ranch and discovers this and tries to stop him, but soon he and his friends are chased by a herd of bloodthirsty sheep, nya. It has lots blood and gore, and creature effects by Weta ,who did the effects for Lord of the Rings, nya. The unrated DVD’s extras include an audio commentary track, deleted scenes, bloopers, the trailer, a half-hour long documentary on the making of the film, and an a-mewsing little extra bit the made just for the DVD, nya. So if you do not mind seeing sheep disembowel people, rip out throats and sever their limbs, then this will be a fun movie for your Halloween horror movie viewing, nya! Want me to talk about Sayonara Jupiter, nya?

Mike:

(from the kitchen) Sure! So, what is the movie about?

Yvonne:

‘Kay! Sayonara Jupiter is a 1983 Japanese science fiction film set in the 22nd century, when we’ve colonized the solar system but still need more resources, nya. When the polar ice of Mars is melted for the water, prehistoric markings similar to those of Nazca are exposed, which tell how thousands of years ago an alien mothership migrated to Jupiter, nya. Plans to turn Jupiter into another sun are delayed until they can investigate the alien, nya. The Project chief’s ex girlfriend is part of a cult that tries to sabotage the solarization and meanwhile missions near Pluto are destroyed by a black hole nya. The black hole will eventually consume our sun, unless it can be diverted by exploding Jupiter -but the saboteurs and that mysterious alien mothership are still lurking about, nya!

Mary Nyan:

So what did you think of that movie, and what all is included on the DVD?

Yvonne:

I was impressed by the lavish effects and sets, nya! In addition to the all the highly detailed spaceships and planets, there are such pretty scenes of Okinawa which I definitely want to visit, nya! In some ways this movie reminded me a lot of 2010, although I think 2010 is a better movie; this movie drags in a few places and certain scenes could have been edited more, nya. The musical score and songs are pretty, and it looks like a big expensive movie, nya! This widescreen movie can be watched with Japanese or English audio; extras include a 30 minute documentary about making of the movie, text notes about the movie and a photo gallery, nya! I think it would especially appeal to fans of the tokusatsu type films, nya!

Jeannie:

Thanks Vonny! (peers into the shrimp tub) Hmm we’re almost out of shrimp… so who wants to go next? Are we purr-pared for Myayr’s usual thoroughness?

Yvonne:

This will be like counting sheep, nya!

Mary Nyan:

Hmph!

Elizabeth:

Oh, we’re just kidding Myayr! We are really impressed with how detailed you can get! Let’s hear it!

Mary Nyan:

OK! The Paul Lynde Halloween Special is a 50 minute ABC TV variety-show special that aired once in 1976 also starring Margaret Hamilton, Tim Conway, Billy Hayes, Billy Barty, Florence Henderson, KISS, Roz ‘Pinky Puscadero’ Kelly, Betty White and a very quick cameo by Donny & Marie Osmond.

The premise is that Paul’s housekeeper (Margaret Hamilton) and her sister are witches, hoping that in exchange for three wishes he will use his celebrity status to improve the image of all witches. The show opens with Lynde preparing for the holidays, followed by a monologue, then the first song and dance number “Kids”, which ends with Donny and Marie stuffing Lynde into an exploding trash can.

Lynde & Hamilton to Gloomsbury Manor, home of her sister (Billy Hayes) and her butler portrayed by fellow Syd & Marty Kroft alumni Billy Barty. The ladies then transform into their witchy guises- Hayes as Witchipoo and Hamilton as the Wicked Witch of the West! The main set is the castle’s wonderfully spacious & well decorated two- story great room. Ironically there are some witchy jokes at the ladies’ expense, coming from the once Bewitched warlock Lynde.

Betty White appears all too briefly as Miss Halloween, displeased that her supposed date is with Paul Lynde, not Paul Newman. Next comes Paul’s first wish,to be a truck driver. In a trucker skit in which he enjoys some very Uncle Arthur-ish jokes at the expense of fellow trucker played by the legendary Tim Conway. Both meet at a diner, claiming to be engaged to waitress Pinky. Lynde arrives with a bang, crashing a Peterbilt through the diner wall. Following that is the second production number, a cheesy glammed-up square dance song about the trucker wedding.

Back at the castle the 2 witches treat Paul to the first performance by KISS! In Destroyer era costumes they descend in an iron cage elevator into the fog enshrouded hall to perform “Detroit Rock City“, and although it’s lip- synched and marred by annoying camera rotation, it’s 100% genuine Kiss spectacle, with Simmons and Stanley jumping pretty high in the air with great energy as begin to play. The song ends amidst flashpots, blazing candelabras and chandeliers, and bursting stacks of Marshall amps.

Giving up on a game of witchy Monopoly, Lynde then asks for his 2nd wish- to be a rich Arabian sheik. This too is granted, along with a kidnapped British heiress portrayed by Florence Henderson in the skit. Lynde later gives the witches back his 3rd wish; they wish to go to a Hollywood disco, which the castle transforms into, complete with dancers, neon bats and fog. Florence returns to sing a disco rendition of “That Old Black Magic” looking so stunning in a shiny slinky black sequin gown with diamond earrings.

Peter Criss looks not so shabby either, at the piano in gleaming rhinestone studded costume, sparkling like a zillion camera flashes as he takes to the piano for his hit song “Beth”. Lynde and the witches chat with Kiss before the band launches into “King of the Nighttime World”, which concludes with Gene’s fire breathing. The final production number is lead by Pinky singing “Disco Baby”, very lovely in a sparkling

black off-shoulder slit-skirted dress, then the show concludes with Lynde thanking everyone for making

Halloween so fun, before the credits roll.

The video quality of the DVD is not the greatest, but up front there is a disclaimer noting that for years there seemed no available video master of the show, and understandably only recently was the DVD compiled from the best archival footage that could be found… but it isn’t that bad. The DVD includes a few bonuses pertaining to the late great Paul Lynde. First is a photo gallery, with dozens of stills from his entire life. Next is an impressive “Notable Quotes from the Mind of Paul Lynde” as text on screen.

Then there is a multiple choice “Name That Quip Trivia Challenge game, and a lovely 12 minute audio interview with Peter Marshall set to lots of stills from Hollywood Squares as he reminisces about Lynde. This DVD includes the complete show, whereas the terrific Kissology Vol. 1 DVD doesn’t include “Beth” or the quick shots of the group overlooking the finale from a balcony. If you’re a fan of Lynde, Hamilton, those wonderful Kroft actors, 70’s TV variety shows or KISS, this fun DVD isn’t an insignificant release!

Yvonne:

(catnapping)

Mary Nyan:

Um…

Mike:

(returning with the food) Wake up Vonny!

Yvonne:

(smells the treats) HUH? MYAHHHI’M AWAKE, NYA!

(all four catgirls in unison, tails gleefully swishing):

Arigatoo gozaimasu!

Jeannie:

MMMM! (chomp)

Elizabeth:

Wow, that was pretty thorough, Myayr! My review is not going to even half as detailed as yours was, but here goes! I suppose my one complaint with Bandai’s release of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is that I wish there were more episodes per disk, given the cost. Volume 3 has only 3 episodes, plus a few extras. Having said that, the episodes are very entertaining and beautifully animated, and the extras are quite a-mewsing. In “Mysterique Sign”, the Brigade searches for the Computer Club’s missing President at behest of his girlfriend, battling the giant cricket that he has become in a pocket dimension. Following that are parts 1 & 2 of “Remote island Syndrome”, in which the group’s vacation on an island becomes a

murder mystery- or so it would seem.

The bonus items on the DVD include an art gallery, TV ads for the series and more of the live-action American Adventures of the ASOS Brigade starring Patricia Jae Lee as Haruhi. In one of those, She is joined by fellow English dub voice actor/ former Power ranger Johnny Yong Bosch! The DVD also includes short promo clips from Japan featuring the wonderful voice actresses Aya Hirano & Nagaru Tarigawa making public autograph appearances. The DVD can be viewed in Japanese language w English subtitles or with an English dubbed audio track. Given this 1st season of the series is only 14

episodes long, presumably it will be concluded with the forthcoming volume 4.

Jeannie:

My review isn’t as long as Myar’s was either! The 1977 BBC production of Count Dracula was finally released on R1 DVD last month. It stars the elegant Louis Jourdan as the handsome Dracula, who’s sometimes the gentleman in the story but always quite evil and a most unsympathetic vampire. Most predatory and deceiftul. Whilst Jourdan may not quite have the legacy in the role as Christopher Lee -he is nonetheless utterly brilliant as the Count.

The entire cast gives excellent performances. Frank Finlay is Dr. Van Helsing, a man of science and yet who also understands the arcane nature of the supernatural creatures of the night. Mark Burns is fellow Dr. Seward, and Jack Shepard is terrific as the both creepy yet sympathetic Renfield. Richard Barnes is the spirited Texan Quincy, Susan Penhaligon plays the part of Lucy, and Bosco Hogan is the doomed solicitor Jonathan Harker. The delightful Judy Bowker almost steals the later part of the movie as Mina, who is not only very sympathetic and heroic- but is actually perky cute as a vampire girl! It is well directed & photographed, set in beautiful locations including Whitby and London, and although there are some changes from the novel it seems for the most part rather faithful an adaptation. If there is any weak link to the production, it is some of the 70’s TV optical effects, particularly when Dracula’s face seems to be a negative of film, or the animation when he materializes inside the bedroom. In one scene there appears to be a fake bat hanging outside the window, but in some scenes a nice real Fruit Bat are used. Some of the effects are good, such as Dracula eerily crawling down the castle wall, or casting no reflection in a mirror.

It would’ve been even nicer had we been given a few more scenes of Dracula, especially aboard the ship that brings him to England, but as it stands few other Dracula films attain this 3 hr version’s depth in what is one of the most faithful cinematic adaptations of Bram Stoker’s novel.

Mary Nyan:

That was from 1977? The same year as Star Wars! It’s now 30 years old!

Elizabeth:

Hmm this gives me an idea…  for another lightning round!

Yvonne:

What is the topic, nya?

Lightning Round #1: The Catgirls’ Favorite Films from ’77, ’87 & ’97!

Elizabeth:

Well, most folks know that Star Wars is 30 years old this year, but so are a few other movies we like. So, what are our favorites from 1977 aside from Star Wars? Jennyjen- Go! (tags Jeannie)

Jeannie:

My other favorite film from 1977 was Close Encounters of the Third Kind, which is purr-obably my third favorite Steven Speilberg movie, behind Jaws and Raiders of the Lost Ark. (tags Mary Nyan)

Mary Nyan:

The Spy Who Loved Me, which is I think the best Bond film of the 70’s! (tags Yvonne)

Yvonne:

oh… mmm… nyaaa…either Close Encounters of the Third Kind or Wizards, nya! Lizzy? (tags Elizabeth)

Elizabeth:

Oh gosh… I’d say either The Spy Who Loved Me or Smokey and the Bandit! How ’bout you, Mike?

Mike:

Ironically my three favorite films from that year are all war movies- Star Wars, A Bridge Too Far and Space Battleship Yamato!

Yvonne:

That was quite a year for movies, nya!

Mary Nyan:

(chomp) How about … 20 years ago?

Jeannie:

Wings of Honneamise and Dirty Pair: Project Eden! Vonny?

Yvonne:

A Chinese Ghost Story and Armor of God nya!

Elizabeth:

The Princess Bride!

Mike:

Man, I dunno… there’s so many… but um, Predator, Extreme Prejudice and… Prince of Darkness come to mind. And you, Myayr?

Mary Nyan:

Raising Arizona, with Planes Trains and Automobiles as a close second.

Elizabeth:

Ok then, what was your favorite movie from ten years ago?

Mary Nyan:

1997… mmm, I’ll say Titanic.

Yvonne:

Um… oh… either The Fifth Element or Men in Black… although we did get a good crowd to go see Jackie Chan’s First Strike- that was a lot of fun, nya!

Jeannie:

Princess Mononoke!

Mike:

I’m with JennJenn- Princess Mononoke! What was yours, Lizzy?

Elizabeth:

Contact!

Mike:

Maybe in January’s Mewsings we can determine out favorites from this year! But let’s move on to another topic… what have y’all been reading lately?

Yvonne:

My manga review is of Aqua volume one, nya! I’ve sooo been looking forward to it, nya!

Jeannie:

I’ve got a book review too!

Mary Nyan:

I have a very detailed manga review of the final volume of Hyper Police!

Yvonne:

I suspect this is going to take a while, nya!

Mary Nyan:

ha ha very funny!

Elizabeth:

Then we’ll need a snack reload! Oh Mi-ike–?

Mike:

Ye-ah, I’m on it! One more platter comin’ right up!

(all four happy catgirls in unison)

THANK YOU FOR FEEDING US!

Jeannie:

OK Myayr, why don’t you start off this month’s

Comics / Manga Reviews!

warning: there are potential plot spoilers ahead for Aqua, Miki Falls, Gear School and Hyper Police!

Elizabeth:

OK, Vonny, please tell us your review of Aqua vol. 1!

Yvonne:

Aqua is the three volume sequel to Aria, by Kozue Amano, nya. ADV published the first three out of ten volumes of Aria a few years ago but cancelled it, and now Tokyo Pop is publishing both titles, nya. The art is so beautiful- it’s the prettiest manga art I’ve seen lately and the stories are charming  slices of life, nya. There’s an Aria Japanese anime series based on the manga that I wish was available here, nya!

PLEASE, SOME AMERICAN COMPANY SUBTITLE AND DISTRIBUTE THE ARIA ANIME ON REGION ONE DVD, NYA!

Jeannie:

I second that!

Mary Nyan:

Well, it never hurts to ask!

Yvonne:

Hai! Anyway, the plot is that 150 years from now, we have cities on Mars, which is now mostly water and renamed Aqua, nya. One such city is Neo Venusia, styled after Venice- the Italian city, not the planet nya. A girl named Akari goes there to be an undine for Aria, one of three gondola companies, nya. Aria’s also the name of the company’s martian cat, nya. Martian cats are pretty smart and mysterious, and blue eyed cats are said to bring good luck, nya. Everyone’s name begins with an “A”: Akari’s sempai is Alicia, and she befriends Aika who rows for Himeya Company, nya. So, Akari’s first few days as a trainee are spent making friends, exploring, and improving her nautical technique, nya!

Elizabeth:

So, what would you rate this purr-ticular volume?

Yvonne:

Aqua and Aria are so beautiful and charming- I give them an “A+”, nya!

THANK YOU KOZUE AMANO, AND EVERYONE AT TOKYO POP FOR AQUA, NYA!

Elizabeth:

I think Jen should go next.

Jeannie:

Speaking of pretty sequential art, I would will recommend the charming romance of Miki Falls by

Mark Crilley, who also created the excellent series Akiko. Projected to be a 4 volume series, I’ve

read the first 3: “Spring”, “Summer” and “Autumn” and I look forward to “Winter”. Miki Yoshida is a Junior and member of the archery club at Fukuyama High School, in a most lovely district near a castle, forests, rice paddies, and a shrine. Her life has just become more complicated by meeting a new handsome student named Hiro.

If it was just a case of love, that alone would be emotional enough, but Hiro resists Miki’s romantic intentions in a most peculiar manner, being extremely secretive. Not giving up so easily she starts to investigate on his activities, and makes quite an astonishing discovery… and that is just the first volume! I won’t spoil any more of the plot. The artwork’s awesome with such meticulous black and white illustrations, depicting such gracefully posed and wonderfully expressive characters amidst lavishly detailed scenery, telling the story at a splendid pace. Miki & friends have cute clothes too!

Mary Nyan:

I liked Akiko but I have not read Miki yet… may I borrow volume one from you?

Jeannie:

Hai! I think Akiko was Crilly’s children’s book masterpiece whereas Miki Falls is his brilliant teen tale.

Yvonne:

What’s Lizzy read, nya?

Elizabeth:

Published by Dark Horse, Gear School is a color science fiction graphic novel, delightfully written by Adam Gallardo with terrific art by Nuria Peris, Sergio Sandoval and Estudio Fenix, a design studio in Barcelona. It’s a tale of Earth in a future war with aliens, in which cute teen Teresa enters the military academy to be a mecha pilot. While there, she has to adjust to the harsh rigor of military training and the social pressures of school, making mistakes and learning who her true friends are. Unfortunately she winds upgoing into real combat sooner than she expected when an alien ship makes a surprise attack upon the campus- but the enemy is unaware that the brave and daring girl is prepared to fight them until reinforcements can arrive! I rather enjoyed it! So…  I guess it’s now time for Myar’s review?

Yvonne:

Well then we’d better get real comfy then, nya!

Mary Nyan:

Ha Ha.

Mary Nyan:

In the final volume- ten- of the Hyper Police manga, Natusuki the catgirl bounty hunter has discovered that her mother Megumi is the Goddess Bast, her father is human, and that she can peer into alternate realities. One such has her werewolf sempai Bananten being killed by a vampire, so she’s determined to prevent that possible fate from happening by taking drastic unexpected measures to change their lives – such as proposing to Bananten. But will her actions divert that possible fate, or were her actions predestined? Fortunately when she accidentally opening a space/ time gate to the sun, the vampire gets roasted, but several city blocks are also scorched, so she’ll need to read a stack of gate manuals.

Another peril is that having asked the werewolf to marry her, this brings out the oversexed beast in him. Their friends Tomy (Bananten’s partner) and Poe (Tomy’s psychic agent girlfriend) plot an intervention, to make sure that Natusuki and Bananten are truly in touch with their feelings, truly in love and not just acting impulsively. Much brawling & arguing ensues… and to further complicate matters, Natsikui’s dad won’t give his consent to the wedding. Were that not enough, Natsuki’s Goddess Mom returns after 16 years, having been reincarnated as a little cat. She’ll consent to the marriage, provided Bananten gets neutered right after providing them with grandchildren. Bananten agrees, and the engagement is on!

Meanwhile, Poe’s partner Kondo is training a rookie kid- the son of a criminal she gunned down years earlier. When rookie Hyatt freezes during a raid -due to a flashback to when his father was sho – Kondo is injured. Megumi wants to spend more quality time with her daughter, and wants to teach Natsuki how to steal fish. In the attempt, she winds up in the clutches of a live octopus. Natsuki zaps the cephalopod thus boiling and paying for it. On the home with the food some homeless monsters bushwhack Megumi and the food. This leads to a fight with the Lake God, a giant catfish, and although Megumi’s a Goddess she is still very much in a small cat body, and is gonna be sore in the morning from all that action.

And so the wedding is on but Bananten can’t wait for some hot lovin’, but has a run of bad luck trying to make it with his fiance. Twice he winds up mistaking Poe for Natsuki, thus he is shot at by Poe, beaten by Tomy, and winds up hospitalized after being hit by a truck when he’s just about to takeNatsuki off to a hotel. Natsuki’s eight-tailed fox partner Sakura, sees news on TV that a kingdom is being overthrown by a coup. Her Samurai husband heeds the call to battle, so they arrange for Natsuki to babysit while they go off to storm a castle. Bananten is intent on storming another sort of castle- a palatial love hotel. He and Natsuki manage to consummate their relationship, but soon it’s time to return to bounty hunting. Meguimi decides to join Natsuki’s company as a trainee. With rookies Hyatt and Sakura’s child Kaede, she and Natsuki search for a wanted felon. Natsuki is still in a love daze from her wedding night and is not thinking as clearly as usual, so the less experienced members wind up leading the hunt. This goes badly as the criminal ambushes them, injuring Kaede and panicking Megumi. This snaps Natsuki back to proper form, who makes short work of their quarry. Fortunately Kaede wound is not too severe and Megumi finally realizes just how dangerous and difficult her daughter’s profession can be.

There’s an epilog set years later with some amazing revelations of the future of Natsuki, her parents, Banatan, Tomy, Poe, the company and Sakura’s family, but I’ve said enough and won’t spoil the plot further. I’ll conclude by saying I that was very entertained by the book and rather pleased with how it ended! Hyper Police is a fun series, with some sexy humor and comedic (usually) violence rated for older teens and since there are only ten volumes of it, it isn’t overly long series. And it stars a catgirl!

Yvonne:

(catnapping)

Mary Nyan:

sigh…

Mike:

(pokes Yvone again)

Yvonne:

NYA!

Elizabeth:

Um… I think that was more of a synopsis than a review…

Jeannie:

I suppose there is a subtle distinction! What kind of fish was Megumi going to steal, nya?

Mary Nyan:

It kinda looked like a Pike… maybe a Muskie!

Elizabeth:

MUSKIE!

Mike:

Ah, we’re all out of that… but I brought y’all some nice Kabayaki!

(all four catgirls in unison)

ITADAKIMASU!

Elizabeth:

Thanks Mike!

Mary Nyan:

(chomp)!

Yvonne:

(mumbling half asleep) mmm fishies smell tasty… nyaahh

Mike:

No problemo! Yonny, you awake?

Yvonne:

(perks up) Haiii!

Jeannie:

Ok quick everybody- new lightning round-

Lightning Round #2: Favorite Bounty Hunter Manga & Anime!

Elizabeth:

Either Battle Angel Alita or Iria: Zeiram The Animation.(tags Mary Nyan)

Mary Nyan:

Oh definitely Hyper Police!

(tags Yvonne)

Yvonne:

I like Gunsmith Cats a lot… do Daphne in the Brilliant Blue, or Geobreeders count, Nya? (tags Mike)

Mike:

I think they are more… private security firms. I’m gonna go with Cowboy Bebop as my pick!

Yvonne:

(chomp) yay EdwardWongHauPepeluTivruskyTheFourth, nya!

Elizabeth:

I… can’t believe she just said that with a mouth full of salmon!

Yvonne:

hee!

Mike:

Hey, y’all ceased surprising me a long  time ago!

Mary Nyan:

Here’s a question… would Ghost Sweeper or Phantom Quest Corp qualify as bounty hunter anime, since those characters are professionals hired by clients to get rid of ghosts instead of people?

Jeannie:

Well, I tend to think of bounty hunters as those get paid to apprehend fugitives for a reward, whereas those ghost buster types are more like hired private investigators or exterminators!

Yvonne:

How about Grenadier Or Samurai Seven, nya?

Jeannie:

Those are more mercenary samurai than bounty hunters… in those cases, they’re private security being hired to protect folks as opposed to hunting down fugitives on their own for the reward.

Mike:

So, what are y’all girls up to after this session?

Elizabeth:

Welllll then- just you wait, heh heh!

Jeannie:

Not much tonight after supper, but I am teaching an early bellydance class in the morning.

Mary Nyan:

We have lantern lighting at the shrine…

Elizabeth:

I’ll be there with Myayr tonight, then I’m gonna read comic books in the rotemburo!

Yvonne:

I’ve got a night volleyball game on the beach, nya! Howbout you Mike, nya?

Mike:

Oh, I’ll be back at the art studio I reckon. Well then, what say we bring home the kitty with-
