The last finales: Asukara, Yakuindomo

Finally, Nagi no Asukara crosses the finish line. They added a little sprint at the end to shave a second off their time, but frankly, it didn't amount to much in the long run. To start this episode we got the people on the surface trying to figure out just what the hell is going … Continue reading The last finales: Asukara, Yakuindomo

Asukara 25, Yakuindomo ?, Nisekoi and Fool 12

The events of Nagi no Asukara 25 seems to be all about gods playing dice with the loves of adolescents and young adults. Actually, for a while it looked like things had settled down. Hikari loves Manaka, and if Manaka could, she'd love him back. Miuna isn't happy about this because she loves Hikari, too, … Continue reading Asukara 25, Yakuindomo ?, Nisekoi and Fool 12

On the pessimistic side are Chisaki and Kaname, with Hikari and Sayu doing the yelling for the … Continue reading Asukara 23, Chuunibyou Ren and Yakuindomo * 10

Kill 19, Asukara 29, Chuunibyou Ren 7

I don't really know what to think about Kill la Kill 19. I didn't expect a huge episode full of fights and revelations after that craziness last week, and I didn't get one. Not to say it was sedate. Instead, the episode concentrated on getting us caught up with what happened to everyone AFTER last … Continue reading Kill 19, Asukara 29, Chuunibyou Ren 7
