Hatoko’s Rant

ino7r

“I don’t understand. I don’t understand! I don’t understand a single word you say, Ju-kun! I don’t understand what’s good about the things you call good! I don’t understand! I can’t understand! What’s so cool about “Bloody”? I don’t like blood. Bleeding just hurts! What’s so cool about “madness”? I don’t understand what’s good about being crazy! What do you mean by “sinful”? What’s so good about having sin? Is it cool being a criminal? And what’s with “chaos,” anyway? Chaos? What about it? What about “darkness”? You want it to be dark? Between justice and evil, why is evil better? Why do you prefer evil? Isn’t it evil because it’s wrong? What’s so cool about your right arm aching? “I love the feeling of being unable to control my power”? What’s that? That just makes you a fool! It’s much cooler when you have control! THAT’S worthy of respect! What’s so awesome about hiding your power all the time? That’s just slacking off! It’s much cooler to face things head-on, at full strength, without hiding anything! Why do you give everything nicknames and aliases? Having so many different names only makes them hard to keep up with! Don’t use English or Katakana for everything! I can’t remember those! Don’t write “elegy” and read it “requiem”! Don’t write “forbidden” and read it “taboo”! Don’t write “holy war” and read it “jihad”! Greek myth, the Bible, Norse myth, Japanese myth…Don’t start talking about them just because you did a little research! If you don’t properly explain it, I can’t understand what you mean! If you’re going to teach me, teach me right! Listening to explanations about mythological weapons is not fun! Gungnir, Longinus, Excalibur, Durandal, and Ama-no-Murakamo-no-Tsurugi all mean nothing to me! I don’t understand what’s cool about them! All your other terminology is confusing, too! Original Sin, Ten Commandments, Book of Genesis, Book of Revelations, Armageddon…What do you mean by “their names are cool”? It’s impossible for me to “feel it by their atmosphere”! Relativity, Schrodinger’s cat, universal gravitation…Don’t act like you understand them because you read a little on the net! I can’t understand them at all if you give half-baked explanations! Don’t quote Nietzsche or Goethe! When you start quoting people I don’t know, I can’t understand what you’re trying to say at all! Talk to me in your own words! I’m begging you, speak so I can understand you! What is “chuuni”? What does “chuuni” mean? I don’t understand, I don’t understand, I don’t understand, I don’t understand! I don’t understand! I don’t understand a single word you’ve ever said at all, Ju-kun!”

Hey, I'm Zane. I am a graphic designer and painter who also enjoys cooking, cleaning, and vegging out on my couch. I tend to veer towards anime that is some combination of comedy, romance, drama, and school settings.

  1. Wow seeing this in writing just makes it all the more amazing. So much respect for Saori Hayami in this scene, it blew me away. I really want to know if this was all in one take because if so, my respect for her is through the roof. As much as I love Tomoyo, this ep changed my view of Hatoko a lot.

    Also, good work on transcribing that scene, must have taken some time to get it all down correctly. My respect to you for that as well.

  2. So I was talking with my friends about anime and one of them blurted out, “After that episode, she gets Seiyuu of the Year.” Which got me curious. They said the character was Hatoko, so after googling I found out that the VA is Hayami Saori.

    I only remembered Hayami Saori from Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei and Red Data Girl. So with all their hype, I watched the anime just to get to that scene. I just watched the scene twice.

    It catapulted Hayami Saori straight to my top three favorite VA’s.

    1. Mahouka and RDG are recent roles, but I also know her as Miho in Bakuman, Saki in Eden of the East, Haqua in The World God Only Knows, Ayase in Oreimo, Yukino in Oregairu, and Ononoki Yotsugi in the various Monogatari series, in which she’ll star in Tsukimonogatari next year. She’s definitely in my top 10 at this point, if not higher.
