KanColle finale, Yuri Kuma 11, Koufuku 10-11

Kantai Collection ends pretty much the way we expected. Akagi is about to get sunk by some aerial monsters but Fubuki shows up just in time. She and her team kick some butt briefly, until another bad guy shows up, so more good guys show up, and more bad guys show up, and while we're … Continue reading KanColle finale, Yuri Kuma 11, Koufuku 10-11

Shirobako 23, Kancolle 11, Saekano 10

You know, after Shirobako 22 aired last week, it occurred to me that if they're going to redo the last episode of Third Aerial Girls Squad, that means re-recording, and that might mean Shizuka might be called in. The girls' dream was to all work together on a professional production, right? I am so glad … Continue reading Shirobako 23, Kancolle 11, Saekano 10

KanColle 8, Maria 6-7, Koufuku 7

Kantai Collection 8 ... (Quick lookup of the actual battleship. Hmm, now I know why they named that island "Truk.") The story had Fubuki and the others gather at Truk, their farthest base, where they meet Yamato, an elegant lady with great power, who is prevented from going to sea because she consumes so much. … Continue reading KanColle 8, Maria 6-7, Koufuku 7

Kantai 6, Shirobako 18, Lie in April 17, Saekano 5

Kantai Collection 6, a silly filler episode about a curry contest, didn't bug me too much. Since there's a, er, fleet of characters to deal with it's nice to see how they react to each other. The trouble is, apart from people Kongou, who is not only taller but dresses differently than the others in … Continue reading Kantai 6, Shirobako 18, Lie in April 17, Saekano 5

Shirobako 17, Koufuku 3-4, Kancolle 5, Saekano 4

Shirobako 17 is another good episode, well, they haven't done an episode below "good," so that's a given, but I'm trying to figure out what the point of it is. The main story arc gives way to a smaller crisis this week, as Musani is ordered by that asshole agent to make a PV to … Continue reading Shirobako 17, Koufuku 3-4, Kancolle 5, Saekano 4

Shirobako 15-16, Lie in April 14-15, KanColle 4

One of the traps Shirobako had set episodes ago was that Third Aerial Girls Squad's author's agent saying "It's all good, see you later" every time Seiichi or someone else had a question. I KNEW that sooner or later the unseen manga author would step in and say "Do it again." Good thing it came … Continue reading Shirobako 15-16, Lie in April 14-15, KanColle 4

2-3s: Kancolle, Saekano, Assassination Classroom

Kantai Collection 2 has no battles, only Fubuki training. So it's completely predictable, apart from the three light cruiser girls taking pity on her and giving her individual training, not knowing that the other two are doing the same, so Fubuki is getting no sleep at all. Also unexpected is Naka trying teach Fubuki how … Continue reading 2-3s: Kancolle, Saekano, Assassination Classroom
