Little Witch Academia 24 and Finale

Since I'm once again in wild catch-up mode, I won't be able to give the last two episodes of Little Witch Academia the attention they deserve, but here we go anyway. I expected the final magic word to be utilized in the final episode, at the big climax, but instead it happens in #24, and … Continue reading Little Witch Academia 24 and Finale

LWA 23, Uchouten Kazoku and Sakura Q 11

As expected, Little Witch Academia 23 is a mopey, sad episode where Akko, repeatedly told "A believing heart is your magic," finds there's nothing to believe in at the moment and vanishes, while characters spend most of their time worrying about her. The rest is Ursula's flashback to Chariot's wild days, and we learn an … Continue reading LWA 23, Uchouten Kazoku and Sakura Q 11

Aliceteria and Mamika, after a conversation between themselves over the type of people … Continue reading Re:Creators 6, LWA 18-19, Uchouten Kazoku 6

Sakura Quest 4, and catching up with Uchouten Kazoku and LWA

Sakura Quest 4 has Yoshi discovering the wood art tradition her area has and trying schemes to re-popularize it. Two woodworkers get the focus: Tatsuo, who is sympathetic, and the gifted Kazushi, who is definitely not. I think he, and Ba-san, have a point that trying to make traditional art modern by sticking the on … Continue reading Sakura Quest 4, and catching up with Uchouten Kazoku and LWA

Demi-chan finale, Academia 12

Demi-chan wa Kataritai 12 finishes the season with another low-key episode, well, it's a swimsuit episode, but apart from that, apart from a quick summing-up from Takahashi at the end, it feels like any other episode. Hikari wants to swim in the outdoor pool and just about everyone else shows up. Even those side-boys do … Continue reading Demi-chan finale, Academia 12
