Finales: ACCA-13 and Youjo Senki, and Maid Dragon 12

ACCA-13 gives us a splendid finale which had me grinning through most of it, right after the moment Mauve stepped in and explained to Schwan that this coup business was nothing more than a public demonstration of his vulnerability, so please take care of yourself, okay? At first it didn't feel right that Schwan would … Continue reading Finales: ACCA-13 and Youjo Senki, and Maid Dragon 12

Tens: ACCA-13, Maid Dragon, KonoSuba (finale)

Not much to say about ACCA-13 10, except to speculate. One thing is made clear, however. Lillium is supporting the coup because he wants Furawau to snatch up whatever it can in the coup. That will be interesting because north of Furawau is Pranetta, and as we discovered this episode, there's nothing much there, just … Continue reading Tens: ACCA-13, Maid Dragon, KonoSuba (finale)

ACCA-13, Maid-Dragon, KonoSuba2 9

In ACCA-13 9, the secret is slowly leaking out, and various factions are beginning to bare their fangs. It appears that the first princess doesn't like the idea of this not-royal couple going about eating delicious food, and she sends out some assassins. Interesting that she says Schwann was "in her way" too, so we're … Continue reading ACCA-13, Maid-Dragon, KonoSuba2 9

ACCA-13, Maid Dragon, KonoSuba2 8

ACCA-13 8 brings the background on the odd sitation. I was expecting intrigue and bloody murder (or less bloody murder with some poison or something), but in fact it's all very sweet, and domestic. Privy Counselor Qualm thinks the young princess Schnee's interest in revolutionary things will be bad for the country, but rather than … Continue reading ACCA-13, Maid Dragon, KonoSuba2 8

Youjo Senki, Maid Dragon, KonoSuba, all sevens

After a week's hiatus Youjo Senki returns and gives us more of the same. This time, however, we start with an Entente officer named Sioux and his sad goodbye to his wife and kid, who are on their way to the United States of Arkansas (I love that). Therefore we know Sioux is going to … Continue reading Youjo Senki, Maid Dragon, KonoSuba, all sevens

Maid Dragon and Konosuba2 6, Seiren 7

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon 6 continues with the running theme of friends and intimacy, often inappropriate. First we get a scene where Saikawa invites Kanna over, and Kanna brings Kobayashi and Tohru, where we get a lot of bonding over maids (another one pops up), plus a strange moment of intimacy between Kanna and … Continue reading Maid Dragon and Konosuba2 6, Seiren 7

Maid Dragon and KonoSuba 5, Seiren 6

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon 5 is a pleasant series of little bits, the best being Tohru sneaking in to watch Kobayashi at work. I'm not a fan of the outward sentimentality some of the scenes give us but here it's restrained to an early moment (Kobayashi wondering how she was before Tohru came along) … Continue reading Maid Dragon and KonoSuba 5, Seiren 6

ACCA-13 4-5, Maid Dragon and KonoSuba2 4, Seiren 5

ACCA-13 4 feels like a "district of the week" type of episode, where Jean goes to a place, sees a problem and then ... doesn't do much. Well, he'll do what he can, like giving Warbler low scores so he'll get to stay in Suitsu, but other than that he's basically a sometimes-kidnapped bystander, observing, … Continue reading ACCA-13 4-5, Maid Dragon and KonoSuba2 4, Seiren 5

ACCA, Maid-Dragon, KonoSuba2 2, Seiren and Demi-chan 3

ACCA-13 2 has the political intrigue moving along, gently, unnoticed to Jean, or so it seems. Grossular, the leader of the Five Chief Officers, either thinks Jean is plotting a coup or wants to set Jean up as a fall guy. Whatever the reason, it means Jean is being tailed. Jean notices this but seems … Continue reading ACCA, Maid-Dragon, KonoSuba2 2, Seiren and Demi-chan 3
