Finales of the season’s best shows (in my opinion): Owarimonogatari, OPM, Teekyuu!

Owarimonogatari finishes up a little sooner than I thought, or hoped. Why is it I have so little to say about the shows that are finishing up this season? Let's see. There's a sweet conversation between Araragi and Senjougahara, a reaffirmation of their love that made both happy in their particular crises and maybe added … Continue reading Finales of the season’s best shows (in my opinion): Owarimonogatari, OPM, Teekyuu!

Cavalry, Asterisk, and OPM 11, Teekyuu 70

Rakudai no Kishi no Cavalry 11 brings us to Ikki's family problems again, when a fake scandal is pumped up by the knights organization and he's brought in for interrogation, over a week of it and counting, with breaks to do his battles. It all follows a pleasant break where we learn what we expected, … Continue reading Cavalry, Asterisk, and OPM 11, Teekyuu 70

Tens: Owarimonogatari, OPM (and 9), Cavalry, Asterisk

It's not that I'm tired of all the talking. If I didn't like talking in anime I would have dropped the franchise long ago. But Owarimonogatari 10 is the second week in a row where a lot of talk can be wearying. I suspect it's because Gaen is doing all the talking and she has … Continue reading Tens: Owarimonogatari, OPM (and 9), Cavalry, Asterisk

Comet Lucifer, OPM, and Sakurako-san 8, Teekyuu 68

Comet Lucifer 8 goes from blood death and getting slaughtered to happy la-la new-agey unicorn lands without the unicorns.  For the former, we have lots of flashbacks of Do Mon.  We know he was a grizzled soldier and allies with Gus, and now we know he used to watch over Sougo's genius mother and obviously … Continue reading Comet Lucifer, OPM, and Sakurako-san 8, Teekyuu 68

Sevens: Comet Lucifer, OPM, Sakurako-san

It looks like Comet Lucifer ran out of ideas on its way to the story.  What we get in episode 7 is more of what we saw in episode 6, except no one's getting married.  They travel for a while, exchange some encouragement, the bad guys attack, Moura gets beaten up again while Sougo and … Continue reading Sevens: Comet Lucifer, OPM, Sakurako-san

Quick sixes: OPM, Sakurako-san, Teekyuux11

One Punch Man 6, apart from Saitama having to find villains to beat in order to keep his hero status, is more of the same, mostly.  Fortunately it's still funny.  Learning that he has to catch a villain a week in order to keep his hero status, Saitama runs around the city looking for something … Continue reading Quick sixes: OPM, Sakurako-san, Teekyuux11

Quickly, Revolutio and OPM 4, Teekyuu 64

Going to hop on another plane soon, so here's what I have for a couple days ... Concrete Revolutio seems to be aiming for a single big story made up of all the little things they casually toss in each week, but frankly the little things are just piling up and not building the structure … Continue reading Quickly, Revolutio and OPM 4, Teekyuu 64

Concrete 2-3, Subete ga F 2, Taimadou 2, OPM 3

Concrete Revolutio 2 (and probably 3--I haven't seen it yet) settles down after its nearly incomprehensible opening episode and starts introducing new characters and getting us used to their odd world.  #2 at least is a better episode for the coherency.  We meet Fuurouta, the child, a "ghost" as they call him, who can shapeshift … Continue reading Concrete 2-3, Subete ga F 2, Taimadou 2, OPM 3

Episode twos and a three: my mad scramble to catch up

Sorry, been traveling.  Now I'm finally able to look at some episode twos.  The trouble is, it's now week three ...  So, here I go! Hackadoll 2 has the girls, well, one of them, deciding to be idols, so they meed some producer guy, they train, and then they do a big show as a … Continue reading Episode twos and a three: my mad scramble to catch up

2015 Fall new shows 4 … yes, I’m behind …

Yes, I'm way behind.  Sorry about that.  And I may not be able to catch up for a while.  For now I'll put up what I have. Concrete Revolutio is an odd thing that seems to be about superheroes keeping earth safe and people who try to keep the superheroes safe. We keep flashback-and-forwarding, so … Continue reading 2015 Fall new shows 4 … yes, I’m behind …
