Boku Dake 11, KonoSuba finale

Boku Dake ga Inai Machi 11 was slightly more than I expected. I knew he would wake up back in the future, and that he would meet his old friends but without the memory of his killer, and they did that. They start with Yashiro narrating stuff about killing hamsters and that Spider's Web story, … Continue reading Boku Dake 11, KonoSuba finale

W and Phantom 10, KonoSuba 9, Teekyuu! 79

Dimension W 10 brings us (and Kyouma) closer to the mystery of what happened years ago. First, Mira and the twins do a number on the robot that's going after Kyouma, only to have it wake up again, only to have Kyouma wake up as well and finish the job. Why did he wake up? … Continue reading W and Phantom 10, KonoSuba 9, Teekyuu! 79

KonoSuba 8, Koyomimonogatari 8-9, Dagashi 8, Shoujo-tachi 9

KonoSuba 8 ... I don't know what the hell happened. What were all those dolls? Why was Aqua behind the door? And you know, it didn't matter much. Our heroes are sent to exorcise a bunch of spirits by Wiz, a nice but hapless servant of the demon king. There's lots of running around in … Continue reading KonoSuba 8, Koyomimonogatari 8-9, Dagashi 8, Shoujo-tachi 9

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

Mad catch-up: KonoSuba, Phantom World, Haruchika, Shoujo-Tachi

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 5 has a first part that doesn't make a lot of sense. Aqua wants a dangerous quest, so they stick her in a cage and put her in a lake to purify it, never mind about the alligators. When the alligators show up the others just stand around and … Continue reading Mad catch-up: KonoSuba, Phantom World, Haruchika, Shoujo-Tachi

3’s, 4’s, and 5’s: Kono subarashii, Phantom World, Boku Dake, and Teekyuu 74

Continuing my desperate catch-up ... Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku Wo! Is turning into a nice, silly comedy. Episode two introduced Megumin, a arch mage or something like that, with one very formidable power that takes FOREVER to conjure up (I think the show's already cutting it shorter by ep3, though I'd like to see … Continue reading 3’s, 4’s, and 5’s: Kono subarashii, Phantom World, Boku Dake, and Teekyuu 74

Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle has young Lux, prince of the overthrown nasty empire, chasing a cat, falling through a rooftop, wouldn't you know it, right into a girls' bath on top of Lisha, the princess of the empire that overthrew his.  Whee!  Naturally she challenges him to a duel, making this show the season's Asterisk or … Continue reading New Shows Winter 2016 #6, and the last.
