Finales: Re:Creators and Isekai Shokudou, and PP 11

There wasn't much for Re:Creators 22 to do once they got rid of the threat. Everybody says wise words to their creator or creation, the latter insisting that their god will give them the justice or boyfriend they want, and off they go, except for Meteora, partly because she can't cast the portal spell and … Continue reading Finales: Re:Creators and Isekai Shokudou, and PP 11

Re:Creators 21, Shokudou 11

Re:Creators 21 is almost entirely a conversation between Altair and the Setsuna that Souta created. Apart from a suicide attempt by the latter, stopped by Altair, there is no action. Sounds deadly dull, but in fact the sentimental lines both people give worked well enough that the episode flew by. Altair, quickly realizing that she … Continue reading Re:Creators 21, Shokudou 11

Tens: Isekai Shokudou, Abyss, Tsurezure

Isekai Shokudou 10 is another routine episode where we meet still another magical race, cute little fairies with butterfly wings, led by their queen, Tiana Silvario XVI, and Victoria advises them to try a fruit crepe, though I suspect anything sugary would work for them. A few months later and the fairies are leading local … Continue reading Tens: Isekai Shokudou, Abyss, Tsurezure

Re:Creators 19, PP 8, Shokudou 9

Last week's Re:Creators was too happy and optimistic for a show that already killed off a popular character, so I figured this week would make up for it in the depressing department. First, Aliceteria goes, after being goaded by Altair, who also makes evil speeches to the audience on the joys of tragedy, I think. … Continue reading Re:Creators 19, PP 8, Shokudou 9

Eights: Abyss, Shokudou, Tsurezure

I had expected Made in Abyss 8 to be a long, dangerous and scary half hour where Riko and Reg are close to torn apart every second, with lots of fleeing through dark forests until something new comes up to make their survival training even worse, and it indeed starts like that--you knew there was … Continue reading Eights: Abyss, Shokudou, Tsurezure

Re:Creators 17, Isekai Shokudou 6-7

Re:Creators 17, for the most part, does what we expected it to. Good buys battling bad guys, who may not be so bad, it's hard to tell sometimes. Shou squares off against Yuya (while fangirls squeal--nice touch), and the latter, after he gets over the surprise of Shou even being there, and even without that … Continue reading Re:Creators 17, Isekai Shokudou 6-7

Episode dump: PP, Re:Creators, Isekai Shokudou

Princess Principal 2, a flashback episode, brought out a weakness, in me, not the show. I get lost in espionage shows a lot because I am too lazy to remember just who is siding with whom, who is only pretending to, and who's double-crossing who at any given time. Thus, the final scene where the … Continue reading Episode dump: PP, Re:Creators, Isekai Shokudou

Mad catch-up time: Re:Creators, Youkai Apts, Isekai Shokudou

After an amusing recap episode where Meteora displays a better sense of humor than she normally shows, and where the show misses a chance to point out that creations were talking to their creators' creators (and mocking their creators in order to amuse us), Re:Creators gets back to more heavy planning. The artists and writers … Continue reading Mad catch-up time: Re:Creators, Youkai Apts, Isekai Shokudou
