> Episode 99 - A man's kindness! Yuuichirou's heart broken by Rei?
> This episode has one of the biggest animation mistakes I've seen in
> this show. The girls are studying and they have on casual clothes --
> Makoto has this green dress, Usagi has black shorts and a pink top,
> etc. Makoto runs in to tell them something terrible is happening
> (Yuuichirou leaving), and they run out to confront him. But suddenly
> they're all wearing their school uniforms!
> Makoto's green dress really looks nice, though.
> The dub butchered this episode by removing the lines where Yuuichirou
> thought Haruka was a man. The problem is that this renders the
> episode kind of incomprehensible -- it's hard to tell why Chad is
> upset over the situation with Raye, or why he would try to fight Amara
> (if he knew she was a girl). They didn't really change much of the
> overall dialogue so it almost seems like Chad thought Raye had turned
> into a lesbian or something like that.
> I don't fully understand why the dub thought they had to change this
> -- they had already used the "people think Haruka is a man" device in
> episode 92, which was basically dubbed unchanged (IIRC). In a way,
> episode 92 was even "worse" (from a potential censorship standpoint)
> because the girls were attracted to Haruka.
