New shows Fall 2017 #4, the last for this season

Kekkai Sensen returns and this time it's Beyond! The first season was so crazy I don't know if there IS a "beyond" for it, but ep1 certain tries. We start, after a "Dear Sis" moment, with Leo calmly driving through the city's usual explosions but then he's free-falling with a bug thing on his head … Continue reading New shows Fall 2017 #4, the last for this season

Sidonia and BBB 11, DanMachi 12

Knights of Sidonia 11 ...  Damn, I wish the entire series was as good as this episode. When KoS does a big battle scene it is always fantastic: fast, fluid action with terrifying moments, aided by the amazing art and soundtrack.  And at this episode's conclusion, you wonder how the hell Nagate is going to … Continue reading Sidonia and BBB 11, DanMachi 12

Sidonia 10, DanMachi 11, Teekyuu 46-47, and BBB 10.5, if that matters

Normally I write up my comments for a show within minutes of watching it, or an hour, but I watched Knights of Sidonia 10 two days ago.  You'd think this would mean a more thoughtful review, but it probably means I've forgotten most of it, in spite of the 78 screenshots that are cluttering up … Continue reading Sidonia 10, DanMachi 11, Teekyuu 46-47, and BBB 10.5, if that matters

Sidonia and Nisekoi 9, BBB and DanMachi 10

In Knights of Sidonia 2 9, something finally happens. Okay, it takes a while.  First we have Nagate and Izana off on their romantic visit to the Thousand Year Village, with its cherry blossoms, zero-gravity hot spring, Nagate's thickness, and Izana's growing frustration, which causes her to fling him and herself into the lovely giant … Continue reading Sidonia and Nisekoi 9, BBB and DanMachi 10

The big shows fall short again, and Nasuno desu 6

There are two big shows right now, Sidonia and BBB, but for the second week in a row they don't add up to much.  Maybe they're developing their big stories or they're just dithering.  Right now it seems like the latter. Knights of Sidonia 2 6, after a peaceful episode where nothing much happens, has … Continue reading The big shows fall short again, and Nasuno desu 6

Sidonia2 5, BBB and DanMachi 6, Nasuno Desu! 5

  I didn't think Knights of Sidonia 2 5 would have much crazy action, since last week's episode's had enough for two (four if you think of most other shows), and besides, there are bodies to heal and intrigue to be done ... Okay, not much intrigue either.  Mostly it's Nagate and Izana worrying about … Continue reading Sidonia2 5, BBB and DanMachi 6, Nasuno Desu! 5

Danmachi and Kekkai Sensen 5, Sidonia 4

DanMachi 5 is an episode where they move a number of currently unrelated plot pieces together, and since the advances are so small it's hard to tell if there's any progress at all.  Liliruca is still being hassled for money, but I'm still not certain what the reason is.  She's still after that knife, too, … Continue reading Danmachi and Kekkai Sensen 5, Sidonia 4

Kekkai Sensen and Yuki-Chan 4, Sidonia2 3, Teekyuu 39-40

Kekkai Sensen has an eccentric way of doing things. In episode 4 we get a great introduction to the latest threat in a party scene, everyone hanging around and doing their things, until Leo does a "by the way, I saw ..." bit, and all attention is suddenly pointed at him. So they bring in … Continue reading Kekkai Sensen and Yuki-Chan 4, Sidonia2 3, Teekyuu 39-40
