Finales: Zvezda, Nobunagun, Dandy

The final episode of Sekai Seifuku: Bouryaku no Zvezda made absolutely no sense, and I couldn't care less. The good guys who weren't there while Kate was beginning her obviously suicidal confrontation with Kyoshiro showed up one by one, and just in the nick of time to rescue someone. And while they did we had … Continue reading Finales: Zvezda, Nobunagun, Dandy

Kill 23, Nobunagun, Yakuindomo, and Chuunibyou Ren 11

Kill la Kill 23 is a big epside with lots of dramatic moments, fighting, and shouting, all to get us ready for the big finale next week. Good thing, too. Frankly, it's beginning to wear thin. When you have a show as over-the-top and intense as this one, you run the danger of bludgeoning the … Continue reading Kill 23, Nobunagun, Yakuindomo, and Chuunibyou Ren 11

Those Nobunaga shows, and Kill la Kill 22

Unfortunately, in Nobunaga the Fool 9, Caesar isn't dead. I guess I shouldn't have expected him to be, but smirking bishie villains drive me up the wall. Now he's teamed up with Uesugi Kenshin, another clan overload, and a bishie himself, but doesn't smirk and actually seems to be a decent sort; he's got this … Continue reading Those Nobunaga shows, and Kill la Kill 22

Fool 8, Nobunagun and Yakuindomo2 9

Nobunaga the Fool 8 again removes any hope of serious intrigue by rushing through the story. We have Caesar, with the loyalty of Takeda behind him and lusting after Ichihime, settling in, all ready for some intrigue (at least he's plotting things), but Nobunaga decides to go ahead and attack and ruin his fun. There's … Continue reading Fool 8, Nobunagun and Yakuindomo2 9

Zvezda 6, Dandy, Nobunagun and Yakuindomo 7

Sekai Seifuku: Bouryaku no Zvezda 6 has Kate, Roboko, Natasha, and Itsuka entering Jimon's school as transfer students. This is relatively late in the series for them to do this. Normally the weirdos transfer in during episode 1 or 2. But they might not stay long; they're only there to look for the "Udo Bride," … Continue reading Zvezda 6, Dandy, Nobunagun and Yakuindomo 7

Nisekoi 4, Nobunagun and Yakuindomo 5

I can't say a lot about Nisekoi 4 except what I've written before, which is that this is a perfectly good but inconsequential and routine highschool romcom that's getting the Shaft treatment. Once again this episode they stick to the style they're known for but don't forget that the show's a comedy. And they must … Continue reading Nisekoi 4, Nobunagun and Yakuindomo 5

Nisekoi 3, Dandy, Nobunagun, and Yakuindomo2 4

Nisekoi continues to be an ordinary high school romance series, given the Shaft treatment. Okay, it does help that the series on its own is more appealing than some. Our anti-lovebirds are already weary with their backgrounds, this facade of romance with someone you dislike makes it even worse. All they want is a normal … Continue reading Nisekoi 3, Dandy, Nobunagun, and Yakuindomo2 4

Catching up with Nobunagun, Space Dandy, and Seitokai Yakuindomo

Catching up, episode by episode. There might be a change in opinion between episodes 2 and 3 for the shows that applies to, but I haven't watched all the 3s yet. Let's start with Nobunagun 2, an episode split between the battle and the stuff that comes after. The battle itself was a lot of … Continue reading Catching up with Nobunagun, Space Dandy, and Seitokai Yakuindomo
