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

W 11, Koyomi 10-11, Gate 23, Teekyuu 81

Dimension W 11 starts with the aftermath of the Loser/Chrysler fight, and now Loser has all the numbers and is probably invincible or something. Meanwhile, Lwai fills Kyouma and the rest about how he's actually a robot controlled by what's left of himself back home, and he's fine with that. So is Kyouma, so the … Continue reading W 11, Koyomi 10-11, Gate 23, Teekyuu 81

Phantom World 9, Gate 21, W and Komugi-chan 9

I probably would have enjoyed Musaigen no Phantom World 9 more if I understood the historical context of the play the gang gets roped into performing, that is, more than a thirty-second peek at "Ikedaya Incident" in Wikipedia.

Koyomimonogatari 7, Gate 20, KonoSuba 7, Dimension W 8

Koyomimonogatari 7 starts with "Platinum Disco," so I was in a good mood to enjoy another trivial little episode of this Bakemonogatri-lite series.  As you could guess, the person with a question this time is Tsuhiki, about her tea club-mates' refusal to listen to reason and accept that there is no ghost-kid who signed up … Continue reading Koyomimonogatari 7, Gate 20, KonoSuba 7, Dimension W 8

Gate 19, W 7, Dagashi 6, Teekyuu 77

Gate 19 starts with disturbing plans from the empire, then gets mostly silly. First we have Zorzal pronouncing himself emperor and raising the rabble against the green people, then meeting with his sneaky-looking generals about how to beat them using more underhanded, covert tactics, something they should have been doing long ago. Meanwhile that long-haired … Continue reading Gate 19, W 7, Dagashi 6, Teekyuu 77
