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

Kuromukuro 10, Asterisk 11, Tanaka-kun and Flying Witch 10

Kuromukuro 10 gives us one or two dollops of information and spends the rest of its time with pointless side bits. The surrendering bad guy, Fusnarie, gets questioned by the UN and tells us that they invaded 450 years ago but the advance party was driven off by the Black Glongur (relic), though of course … Continue reading Kuromukuro 10, Asterisk 11, Tanaka-kun and Flying Witch 10

Delta 10, Witch 9, Asterisk 22, Kumamiko 10

I should have seen it coming in Macross Delta 10 ... There are reasons why I didn't. First, Messer looked like he was going to be peacefully shipped off to a Vars-free environment and teach recruits, not that we believed for a second that he would stay gone long; I figured there would be a … Continue reading Delta 10, Witch 9, Asterisk 22, Kumamiko 10

Kuromukuro and Flying Witch 8, Asterisk 21, Delta 9

Kuromukuro 8, to my surprise, has no battle in it, well, one slice at the very end after an interesting chase (the robot tried to go under the log.  Note that for later).  In fact, the episode dithered a bit too much.  Perfectly fine for Yukina's absense to simply be a big pout, and I … Continue reading Kuromukuro and Flying Witch 8, Asterisk 21, Delta 9

Asterisk 20, Flying Witch 7, Delta 8

Gakusen Toshi Asterisk 20 has to carry both Ayato and Julis's finals match and Kirin and Saya's rescue mission.  Didn't expect both of them to finish up in one episode, but they came close. Starting with the match, we get some pre-planned maneuvers and, as usual in this series, too much talk, as A/J try … Continue reading Asterisk 20, Flying Witch 7, Delta 8

Sevens: Asterisk, Delta, Kumamiko, Bakuon

No matter what I do something comes up in RL and I fall behind with my posts.  Sorry about that Coming into Gakusen Toshi Asterisk 7 things looked interesting, Flora still gone and Ayato, searching for her, on the run from goons. But instead, all of a sudden,we get this new girl Sylvia, who takes … Continue reading Sevens: Asterisk, Delta, Kumamiko, Bakuon

Flying Witch 4-5, Asterisk 6

Falling behind again. Didn't realize I was still two episodes behind with a show: Flying Witch.  Still, this show continues to breeze by so quickly that two episodes felt like only twenty minutes ... okay, thirty.  In episode 4 we meet another witch, Inukai, who had an unfortunate encounter with Akane's experimental chocolates and now … Continue reading Flying Witch 4-5, Asterisk 6

Sansha Sanyou 2-3, Asterisk and Delta 4-5

Most seasons I watch everything I can in the first week, then start culling shows when the second week comes by saying "Do I REALLY want to see another episode of that?"  Now, three episodes into almost everything, I can't find an answer to that question when it comes to Sansha Sanyou.  In episode 2 … Continue reading Sansha Sanyou 2-3, Asterisk and Delta 4-5
