Monogatari SS 24, Coppelion 11, NouCome Finale

The worst thing about watching this Kaiki arc of Monogatari SS is that dour cello music that plays throughout. While not the worst piece of music to listen, especially in the holiday season, it sticks in my head long after the episode. The other thing that bothers me is that there are only two episodes … Continue reading Monogatari SS 24, Coppelion 11, NouCome Finale

NouCome 8-9, Monogatari SS 22-23, Teekyuu 33-34

Catching up with NouCome. Let's see. Episode 8 had Chocolat get hugged by Kanade (Choose!) and transform into a different Chocolat. In this new form she is rational, not a glutton, and pretty damn boring. But she at least is able to give Kanade some important information about his curse (there's ANOTHER damn god doing … Continue reading NouCome 8-9, Monogatari SS 22-23, Teekyuu 33-34

Asukara 8, Monogatari SS 18?, Noucome 7

Monogatari SS 17, NouCome 6, Biyori 7

I guess that they had all those wild, funny moments in last week's Monogatari SS because they knew episode 17 would be incredibly sad. I had the essential point of the episode spoiled for me, so maybe I didn't get the full effect of it, but I still found the episode moving, even though it's … Continue reading Monogatari SS 17, NouCome 6, Biyori 7

NouCome (yes, NouCome) 2-3, Kill la Kill and Kanata 4

With my backlog growing bigger and bigger I turned to the shows I hadn't watched since episode one to see if I wanted to keep them. That submarine girl series? Nah. Tokyo Ravens? Maybe. Gingitsune? Haven't gotten back to it and maybe never will. I had almost forgotten about NouCome, and so watched episode 2 … Continue reading NouCome (yes, NouCome) 2-3, Kill la Kill and Kanata 4
