Twos and threes: Horimiya, Mushoku, Biyori2, Slime, Wonder Egg

Drama! The thing about Horimiya, well, two episodes in, is that it covers the romcom tropes, what to get Hori for her birthday, the misunderstanding over the missing SC files (and Sengoku the prez being a bit of a jerk), and the whole thing with Miyamura's first name (Izumi), oh, and Miya's mom, but then … Continue reading Twos and threes: Horimiya, Mushoku, Biyori2, Slime, Wonder Egg

Winter 2021 3

Since some shows are already into week 3 I better finish up the week 1's ... Ex-arm is being coy about itself in the first scene. We start this installment with Ex-arm, where a guy named Akira, who is afraid of technology, gets hit by a truck while running to rescue a girl. Jump to … Continue reading Winter 2021 3

Twelves: Charlotte, Jitsu wa, Seiyuu, and Biyori: Repeat finale

After all that happened last week it was a probably necessary for Charlotte 12 to be a sort of healing episode.  We watch Yuu slowly rehabilitate while at least one other ability user blames him for letting Kumagami die, the idiot.  But it does place a sense of responsibility on Yuu and leads to his … Continue reading Twelves: Charlotte, Jitsu wa, Seiyuu, and Biyori: Repeat finale

Laplace finale, CC 12, Seiyuu and Biyori Repeat 11, Teekyuu 59

Rampo Kitan: Game of Laplace is the first show of the season to finish, and it does so in no better or worse fashion than the ridiculous final story arc permits. Namikoshi's nefarious plan to create an explosion of twenty faces for society to deal with is near fruition with his own death.  Meanwhile Kobayashi … Continue reading Laplace finale, CC 12, Seiyuu and Biyori Repeat 11, Teekyuu 59

Jitsu wa, Seiyuu, Biyori: Repeat 10, Teekyuu 58

In Jitsu wa Watashi wa 10 I caught the phrase.  Mikan's possessed glasses says it as she's about to confess Mikan's love for Asahi.  Trouble is, Aizawa was wearing them.  So now everyone thinks Aizawa is in love with Asahi, which she is, but she doesn't want to say it.  The glasses thought they were … Continue reading Jitsu wa, Seiyuu, Biyori: Repeat 10, Teekyuu 58

BiyoriRepeat, Laplace, and Seiyuu 9, Teekyuu 57

Non Non Biyori 9 is mainly about Natsumi, so there's a lot of lying and stupid behavior in play.  This show is weakest when it shows antics like this, Natsumi trying to cover up the fact that she and Hikage ate all the moon-viewing dumplings, or in another episode, Hotarou trying to hide all of … Continue reading BiyoriRepeat, Laplace, and Seiyuu 9, Teekyuu 57

Charlotte, Seiyuu, Jitsu wa and Biyori 6, Teekyuu 54

Oh, jeez, I hope Charlotte isn't going to turn into one big tragedy after another.  We don't know what happened to Ayumi at the end, all we see is some blood on the ruins and the longhair standing over it.  Maybe it's not Ayumi's blood, or it is but she's not dead.  But the ED's … Continue reading Charlotte, Seiyuu, Jitsu wa and Biyori 6, Teekyuu 54
