Coppelion and Galilei cross the finish line and fall over dead

Coppelion ends the way it begins, with a hopelessly messy and silly story taking the life out some effective moments. There's a few things that the show has done well, believe it or not. Up to now, the running theme that the girls are artificial humans, dolls, created to do mankind's bidding without any thanks … Continue reading Coppelion and Galilei cross the finish line and fall over dead

Monogatari SS 24, Coppelion 11, NouCome Finale

The worst thing about watching this Kaiki arc of Monogatari SS is that dour cello music that plays throughout. While not the worst piece of music to listen, especially in the holiday season, it sticks in my head long after the episode. The other thing that bothers me is that there are only two episodes … Continue reading Monogatari SS 24, Coppelion 11, NouCome Finale

Kill 10, Asukara 9-10, Coppelion 10

Kill la Kill 10 continues as before. Computer guy Inumuta is rather easily defeated, so they have plenty of time to start the battle with Jakuzure, which, so far is also predictable. Bad guy does something outrageous, hurts Ryuuko, who gets her suit to do something even more outrageous, and wins, well, at least the … Continue reading Kill 10, Asukara 9-10, Coppelion 10

Kill, Coppelia, Kanata 9, Galilei 8

At the end of Kill la Kill 9 I wondered a few things. Mainly, is this going to be the format for the foreseeable future? Every week Ryuuko takes on another high-ranking student council member, she gets beaten up for most of the episode while we get the odd side scene about the bad guy's … Continue reading Kill, Coppelia, Kanata 9, Galilei 8

Eights: Kill, Coppelion, Kanata; Thirty-ones: Teekyuu

Kill la Kill 8 is basically a setup for the Big Fights we've been expecting since the beginning, though we didn't know it at the time. All we knew was that there would be a huge resetting of authority in the school and everyone, including the four devas, have to fight for it. So it … Continue reading Eights: Kill, Coppelion, Kanata; Thirty-ones: Teekyuu

I don’t much care for Nati no Asukara or Coppelion 7, nor Gallilei Donna 6

Nagi no Asukara 7 made me want to punch a few of the characters, and Hikari was not one of them. But is that a good thing? I'm talking of course of the adults, the fat pigs who live both underwater and on the surface, and who insist on insulting each other and getting into … Continue reading I don’t much care for Nati no Asukara or Coppelion 7, nor Gallilei Donna 6

Monogatari SS 19, Galilei 5, Coppelion 6

Last week's Monogatari SS, with that beautiful artwork panning by why Shinobu gave a rather sad monologue about part of her life and someone she met, and how they were pulled apart, felt elegant and dignified. As for this week: While we get back to the worrisome plot in episode 19, the whole thing is … Continue reading Monogatari SS 19, Galilei 5, Coppelion 6

Coppelion 4, Non Non Biyori 3-4, and the latest Teekyu stats

Coppelion 4 had more scenes where people showed remorse and others are forgiven and rescued, and none of worked. Well, the scene where the headmaster confronts Denjiro, and you aren't sure if he's going to embrace him or slug him, was a decent moment. Denjiro, who had just tried to wander off and die, would … Continue reading Coppelion 4, Non Non Biyori 3-4, and the latest Teekyu stats

Scrambling to catch up: Galilei and Biyori 2, Coppelion 3

Galilei Donna 2 has to do some explaining and get the plot moving, so it's as fun as episode one. We also here the phrase "Galileo Inheritance" used way too much. Last week it was the pirates who wanted to know. This episode, Cassini the cop wants to know, that evil guy who looks like … Continue reading Scrambling to catch up: Galilei and Biyori 2, Coppelion 3
