Finales: Delta(?), Kuromukuro

Now, ANN says they have 27 episode titles but says the number of episodes is 26, while MyAnimeList says 26 and AniDB says it's finished. Well, the ending of Macross Delta is a little abrupt, but apart from diplomatic negotiations with Windemere there's nothing more to be done. And it sure as hell felt like … Continue reading Finales: Delta(?), Kuromukuro

Kuromukuro 24-5, Delta 25, bye-bye Sousei

Kuromukuro 24 has the big battle, but it felt rather small. I said last time that I wondered what the rest of the world was doing while the Efidolg was busy getting ready to upload the hinge stone. Maybe they haven't been checking out their answering machine because this battle was between all the regulars … Continue reading Kuromukuro 24-5, Delta 25, bye-bye Sousei

Delta 23-4. Kuromukuro 22-3, Sousei 22

Macross Delta 23 makes you wonder what CHAOS and all those other guys were thinking, sending the Walkure to the enemy stronghold without much of a backup. Okay, getting through that gate last week was tricky, but they should have had a better plan in mind. In the first half of this episode the good … Continue reading Delta 23-4. Kuromukuro 22-3, Sousei 22

Delta 22, Kuromukuro and Sousei 21

I think Macross Delta is misplaying its story; I just can't get excited over anything that's happening at the moment. We start in Windemere where Bogue states the obvious: if Heinz dies or is otherwise unable to sing, they can't use the ruins to control minds and their entire galaxy-domination plan goes kerflooy, and those … Continue reading Delta 22, Kuromukuro and Sousei 21

Kuromukuro 20, Delta 21, Sousei 20

Kuromukuro 20 has Yukina creeping around the Efidolg station, wisely realizing that she would have to make her own way out of there, which doesn't exactly turn out to be the case, but it's better than sobbing alone or getting stabbed by Mirasa. Also, it gives us more backstory as she stumbles, by amazing coincidence, … Continue reading Kuromukuro 20, Delta 21, Sousei 20

Stray Dogs and Tanaka-kun finale, Sousei 12, Kuromukuro 11

I had no idea this episode of Bungou Stray Dogs was the finale until it ended with no preview and I checked sources. Well, it was a good episode to end with. We have the appearance of the Guild, basically rich, gifted assholes from America with enormous power and influence in their hands. We already … Continue reading Stray Dogs and Tanaka-kun finale, Sousei 12, Kuromukuro 11

Kuromukuro 10, Asterisk 11, Tanaka-kun and Flying Witch 10

Kuromukuro 10 gives us one or two dollops of information and spends the rest of its time with pointless side bits. The surrendering bad guy, Fusnarie, gets questioned by the UN and tells us that they invaded 450 years ago but the advance party was driven off by the Black Glongur (relic), though of course … Continue reading Kuromukuro 10, Asterisk 11, Tanaka-kun and Flying Witch 10
