Stray Dogs and Tanaka-kun finale, Sousei 12, Kuromukuro 11

I had no idea this episode of Bungou Stray Dogs was the finale until it ended with no preview and I checked sources. Well, it was a good episode to end with. We have the appearance of the Guild, basically rich, gifted assholes from America with enormous power and influence in their hands. We already … Continue reading Stray Dogs and Tanaka-kun finale, Sousei 12, Kuromukuro 11

Asterix2 finale, Stray Dogs, Sousei and Tanaka-kun 11

Gakusen Toshi Asterisk season 2 has a predictable finish. They have to set up a new season, after all. First we get an adorable bedside flashback with Ayato and all the girls, well, not Claudia. It's a good thing the scene is cute because otherwise, apart from a few more details concerning Ophelia's power and … Continue reading Asterix2 finale, Stray Dogs, Sousei and Tanaka-kun 11

Tens: Bakuon, Sousei, Bungou

Bakuon!! 10 continues the introduction of Chisame, still working out her frustration at being a champion minibike racer but who's too short to ride your average street bike. The girls invite her to sit on their bikes and give her opinion while she begs off because it would reveal her TERRIBLE SECRET of shortness. Further … Continue reading Tens: Bakuon, Sousei, Bungou

Bungou, Kuromukuro, Tanaka-kun 9

Bungou Stray Dogs 9 looked at first to be following the story: Kyouko, the assassin-girl, and Atsushi, the boy who feels sorry for her, not to mention what is happening with Dazai, but now it looks like the two incidents are two different stories with two different motives, with only Kyouko linking them. One is … Continue reading Bungou, Kuromukuro, Tanaka-kun 9

Eights: Bakuon, Sousei, Bungou, Tanaka-kun

A pleasant two or three-parter in Bakuon!! 8. The first part is all about getting Hijiri her license, when she's never even been on a bicycle before. So she falls down a lot and gets enraged. However, I'd say this episode was more of an homage to her practice ride, the Honda Super Cub, which … Continue reading Eights: Bakuon, Sousei, Bungou, Tanaka-kun

Bungou 7, Kumamiko 8, Kuromukura and Tanaka-kun 7

Bungou Stray Dogs 7, while not appearing to be, is actually about Kunikida and his ideals, though, like the first part of the story last week, you hardly notice it, at least until the end, when after an entertaining enough battle where the bomb guy, a smirking bishie and thus my least favorite anime character … Continue reading Bungou 7, Kumamiko 8, Kuromukura and Tanaka-kun 7

Sixes: Delta, Kumamiko, Bakuon, Sousei, Stray Dogs

Macross Delta 6 begins with Messer belittling Hayate and Mirage's flying skills, while Mikuno has started to go all catty on poor Freyja. It's not much fun to watch these sort of scenes, and I wish the show would get over it and settle our couple in. On the other hand, I was surprised to … Continue reading Sixes: Delta, Kumamiko, Bakuon, Sousei, Stray Dogs

Sousei no Onmyouji and Bungou Stray Dogs 2-3

Sousei no Onmyouji 2 keeps up the mix of pretty-looking battles with silly middle school kids doing silly things. After Rokuro polishes off the kegare, Benio is pissed off both because he appears to be better than her, and because he hates the whole exorcism scene. Double the annoyance for her because it means he … Continue reading Sousei no Onmyouji and Bungou Stray Dogs 2-3
