Paradise Kiss Episode 6
In an interview in the January, 2007 issue of Newtype USA, director Kobayashi revealed many of the personal decisions which went into restructuring the manga into a television series. Wanting to avoid straying too far from the source material without approval, Kobayashi worked closely with Ai Yazawa on the new interpretations of the characters. In many instances, Yazawa was concerned that taking the original material straight would distract casual viewers or worse drive them away. Chief among these concerns was the handling of George's bisexual nature and interest in sadomasochism. Yazawa agreed that the dialogue should reflect this, but that actual onscreen depictions (as can be found in the original manga) were to be avoided. However, Kobayashi felt this was not being entirely true to the character, so he included a few hints of this side of George in the final episode. In another instance of modification, this time brought by Kobayashi, the character design of Arashi was modified to suit a scruffier, less slick appearance. "I wanted to make him look like Lupin the 3rd... sort of slouching and walking around with his hands in his pockets," Kobayashi explained. In agreement with the director, Yazawa went for the change.
One area Yazawa and Kobayashi did not agree on was the casting of Shunsuke Mizutani as Arashi. The fact that he was not a professional voice actor, but rather a musician, was the cause of this debate. Kobayashi had wanted a more natural performance that did not sound like the typical voice acting found in anime. "Yazawa and I even had a few rows because of that," Kobayashi explains. "But after she'd seen about three episodes, she finally admitted that Mizutani's voice is a great match, and I was able to relax."
Melissa Sternenberg of THEM Anime Reviews called the character designs and animation "fresh and appealing" with the closing and opening sequences "some of the best of the Fall 2005 season," and praised the animation and artwork, especially the fashion designs. However, she felt the series went wrong in cramming the story into 12 episodes, saying 26 episodes would have been better, and said that she disliked the main characters. However, she said that the sentimentality of ParaKiss seems to "accurately reflect the real fashion world".
Chris Harrison asks for Demi, and explains that they want her to find love no matter what, so to help her do that... they've flown Kristian to Paradise. Upon seeing her, Demi starts crying immediately. Poor Derek has no chance at all: Demi and Kristian clearly still have incredibly strong feelings for each other, and they kiss and talk about how much they've missed each other.
Arman and Thony looked hot as they prepared to take Cortes on, even if Thony was shaking inside. The first few episodes of The Cleaning Lady Season 2 didn't have many Arman and Thony moments, but we've been blessed with little moments in the last few episodes.
The episode ends with Mikuni on a toilet. Again. Unfortunately not the last time we see her in this position. Keita gets busted for peeping, though he was actually trying to stop those other kids from peeping on the girls before himself. This has been the only episode of KxS without kissing, curiously enough. The Mikuni rape fantasy, Yuzuki groping fantasy are a fine substitute. 041b061a72
