Finales: Boku Dake ga Inai Machi, Gate

The finale of Boku Dake ga Inai Machi was excellent and emotionally satisfying, and I don't mind that they cheated a bit. I had wondered how Satoru was going to get out of his situation, being trapped in a wheelchair with his would-be murderer, with that gate swinging open. It starts well, with the two … Continue reading Finales: Boku Dake ga Inai Machi, Gate

Boku Dake 11, KonoSuba finale

Boku Dake ga Inai Machi 11 was slightly more than I expected. I knew he would wake up back in the future, and that he would meet his old friends but without the memory of his killer, and they did that. They start with Yashiro narrating stuff about killing hamsters and that Spider's Web story, … Continue reading Boku Dake 11, KonoSuba finale

Boku Dake 9, Komugi-chan R 8, Dagashi 7, Teekyuu 78

Boku Dake ga Inai Machi 9 sees the end of the Kayo story arc, if that's the right thing to call it. The confrontation between Akemi, Kayo's mom, and Sachiko ... AND the children's welfare people, goes along expected lines. Kayo is taken away (by nice people) and we may never see her again. This … Continue reading Boku Dake 9, Komugi-chan R 8, Dagashi 7, Teekyuu 78

Boku Dake, Phantom World, Shoujo-Tachi 8, Komugi-chan 7

Boku Dake ga Inai Machi 8 starts with a bit of terror, and a conundrum. The killer enters the bus. Kayo is too terrified to escape, but all the killer does is kick a box, dumps a backpack full of incriminating things ... and leaves without opening the curtain. The only thing I can think … Continue reading Boku Dake, Phantom World, Shoujo-Tachi 8, Komugi-chan 7

3’s, 4’s, and 5’s: Kono subarashii, Phantom World, Boku Dake, and Teekyuu 74

Continuing my desperate catch-up ... Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku Wo! Is turning into a nice, silly comedy. Episode two introduced Megumin, a arch mage or something like that, with one very formidable power that takes FOREVER to conjure up (I think the show's already cutting it shorter by ep3, though I'd like to see … Continue reading 3’s, 4’s, and 5’s: Kono subarashii, Phantom World, Boku Dake, and Teekyuu 74

Shoujo Tachi 2-3, Boku Dake 3

Shoujo-tachi wa kyouya wo Mezasu 2 gathers the other talents to create Kuroda's game. Didn't take the long. Bunta is told to go out and recruit, and after some failures (characters we won't see again) he enlists his friends Yuuka (Who's interested in voice acting) and Kai, who has no special talents so will be … Continue reading Shoujo Tachi 2-3, Boku Dake 3
