I haven't seen Sidonia or BBB's yet, so at this moment DanMachi has delivered the best finale of the season. It was far better than I expected, and yes, it had draggy moments. Early on when the adventurers (even the bad ones) were regrouping and then flinging everything they had at the goliath, arrows, swords, … Continue reading More finales: DanMachi, Nisekoi2
Hibike Euphonium 12 ... It's going to take a while to get that little tune out of my head. It starts with Taki asking the Euphs to help play one particularly nasty passage. Kumiko can't handle it, but spends most of her time practicing, and gets better. Taki is still not impressed, but she promises … Continue reading Twelves: Euphonium, Nisekoi2, Finales: Show by Rock, Mikagura, and Teekyuu!
Nisekoi 10 is a more sober affair than most episodes. Shuu has a crush on Kyoko, the homeroom teacher, but she announces she's quitting to get married next month. So the question for Shuu, and Raku, is should he confess before she leaves, knowing it might complicate things, or carry the secret to his grave. … Continue reading Nisekoi 10, Show by Rock and Euphonium 11
In Knights of Sidonia 2 9, something finally happens. Okay, it takes a while. First we have Nagate and Izana off on their romantic visit to the Thousand Year Village, with its cherry blossoms, zero-gravity hot spring, Nagate's thickness, and Izana's growing frustration, which causes her to fling him and herself into the lovely giant … Continue reading Sidonia and Nisekoi 9, BBB and DanMachi 10
In Kekkai Sensen, we finally learn that White, not to mention Black, is up to. It really comes down to one line. Okay, I should have figured it out already, that whatever story arc they come up with will be some baddie or other going for Leo's eyes. Maybe because others had already made the … Continue reading BBB 9, Nisekoi 2 and Sidonia 8
Kekkai Sensen 8 gets some of its energy back this week, even though the episode (and the next, apparently) all have to do with Zapp. Well, actually, that's not true. We spend some time with Leo and Black early on, the latter so acting like a nice guy that I wonder if he really is, … Continue reading BBB 8, Sidonia and Nisekoi 7
Houkago no Pleiades 6 felt at times like a season finale. For a while I thought maybe this was actually a six-episode mini-series, but no, there's still more engine fragments to collect, but elsewhere much has changed. Basically, Horned Cape or whatever he's called (we learn this week it's not Minato) sends off one of … Continue reading Pleiades 6, Yuki-Chan and DanMachi 7, Nisekoi2 6, Teekyuu 42
