Paradise Kiss Episode 2
Yukari is given 3 days to decide if she wants to be the model for Paradise Kiss and she seriously begins to consider it. She "coincidentally" runs into George at the library where she's trying to study and ends up having a little picnic with him afterwards. She tells him some of her problems with not knowing what to do with her life, and is surprised that he actually is listening to her.
The next day she decides to stop by Atelier (their hangout place) to say hi, and walks in on Miwako and Arashi about to get busy on the pool table. She and Miwako end up going to get some tea and Miwako reveals she saw the picture of Hiro in Yukari's student book. She and Arashi were childhood friends with Hiro, but they haven't seen each other for a long time. Yukari notices Miwako looks a little sad when talking about him and cheers her up by agreeing to be their model.
The next day they have a little party at Atelier and Yukari gets a little drunk on the champagne (since she thought it was non-alcoholic...) and ends up missing her cram-school. George takes her home and leans in as if to kiss her, but was apparently about to wipe the lipstick off her lips with a handkerchief. In any case, Yukari is quite flustered by the whole thing...
Well, this episode was definetly more interesting story-wise though I must say the animation was a little lacking at times. I was actually happy about the fact that the SD was used a little less and was a bit less obtrusive than in the last episode. Because I was watching the raw again, I kinda followed along with my trusty ParaKisu manga and everything was pretty much exactly like the manga, which I figure will be the case throughout the series.
