2019 Summer 4

Isekai Cheat Magician is yet ANOTHER show where some high school kids are plucked out of our world and into a generic western fantasy RPG setting. This time it's Taichi and Rin, who get sucked into a magic circle and find themselves on a grassy plain and are immediately menaced by a killer horse. Fortunately … Continue reading 2019 Summer 4

New shows Spring 2017 5, the last

Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasuka? Isogashii Desuka? Sukutte Moratte Ii Desuka? ... what a title. Anyway, we have a woman talking about how happy she was that someone loved her while we watch a sky battle and people plunging to earth. Cut to a generic fantasy village where everyone's an animal, except for a girl chasing a … Continue reading New shows Spring 2017 5, the last

Sidonia 10, DanMachi 11, Teekyuu 46-47, and BBB 10.5, if that matters

Normally I write up my comments for a show within minutes of watching it, or an hour, but I watched Knights of Sidonia 10 two days ago.  You'd think this would mean a more thoughtful review, but it probably means I've forgotten most of it, in spite of the 78 screenshots that are cluttering up … Continue reading Sidonia 10, DanMachi 11, Teekyuu 46-47, and BBB 10.5, if that matters

Sidonia and Nisekoi 9, BBB and DanMachi 10

In Knights of Sidonia 2 9, something finally happens. Okay, it takes a while.  First we have Nagate and Izana off on their romantic visit to the Thousand Year Village, with its cherry blossoms, zero-gravity hot spring, Nagate's thickness, and Izana's growing frustration, which causes her to fling him and herself into the lovely giant … Continue reading Sidonia and Nisekoi 9, BBB and DanMachi 10

DanMachi, Show by Rock, Euphonium 8, Teekyuu 44

DanMachi 8 feels like a story arc ending, but we weren't really in one, were we?  But then I realized that all that getting beaten up by Aiz and moaning about how he isn't getting stronger was a personal arc for bell, preparing him for his big success against that minotaur.  It works fairly well  … Continue reading DanMachi, Show by Rock, Euphonium 8, Teekyuu 44

Pleiades 6, Yuki-Chan and DanMachi 7, Nisekoi2 6, Teekyuu 42

Houkago no Pleiades 6 felt at times like a season finale.  For a while I thought maybe this was actually a six-episode mini-series, but no, there's still more engine fragments to collect, but elsewhere much has changed.  Basically, Horned Cape or whatever he's called (we learn this week it's not Minato) sends off one of … Continue reading Pleiades 6, Yuki-Chan and DanMachi 7, Nisekoi2 6, Teekyuu 42

Sidonia2 5, BBB and DanMachi 6, Nasuno Desu! 5

  I didn't think Knights of Sidonia 2 5 would have much crazy action, since last week's episode's had enough for two (four if you think of most other shows), and besides, there are bodies to heal and intrigue to be done ... Okay, not much intrigue either.  Mostly it's Nagate and Izana worrying about … Continue reading Sidonia2 5, BBB and DanMachi 6, Nasuno Desu! 5
