Finales: Mekaku, Kanojo Flag, also maybe the end of Mahouka for me

Mekaku City Actors ends (to my surprise--I thought it was a two-cours show) happily, though I still don't know what the hell happened. So Marry, with the help of her friends, decides not to wish on a dream future, but instead face the real one alongside her friends, whom she was trying to save by … Continue reading Finales: Mekaku, Kanojo Flag, also maybe the end of Mahouka for me

Sidonia 11, Mahouka 12, Mekaku 11, Kanojo Flag 12

Sidonia and Mekaku 6, Kanojo Flag 6-7, Nisekoi 19

While it's nice to see the hero triumph, it gets dull if that's all he does, misadventures adjusting to his new life on Sidonia aside. Mind you, … Continue reading Sidonia and Mekaku 6, Kanojo Flag 6-7, Nisekoi 19
