The finale of Asobi ni Iku Yo does what you expect it to. The good cats win, the bad dogs lose. But it was hard for me to get interested in it. It starts out well enough. The Cathian rescue ship needs thirty minutes to fuel up but there's NATO tanks and helicopters on the … Continue reading The final finales: Asobi, K-ON!!
I've seen better setups to big finales than Asobi ni Iku Yo 11. Not to say that what they did last week wasn't effective. The Cathian ship taken over and heading toward the outer atmosphere, the crew hiding in a wormhole, the captain, the only one able to give the ship commands unconscious … it's … Continue reading Asobi ni Iku Yo 11
The final episode of K-ON!! is already out and everyone but me has seen it. Nevertheless I'm going to write about the previous episode, because, er, I'm behind. In this episode the girls set records for dithering, and for once I don't mind at all. It's the day before graduation and the seniors are not … Continue reading K-ON!! 23, Asobi 10

Highschool of the Dead 9 follows Takashi and Saeko as they try to reunite with the rest after being cut off. At first it's simply their adventures. They find an amphibious buggy and manage … Continue reading Highschool 9, Asobi 8
Occult Academy 8 fixes all the things that went wrong last episode. Maya and Ami are friends again, and Shigeru proves again that he's a cool dad. Too bad they had to throw in a monster invasion to do it, except the girls weren't all that mad after all, so what's the point of the … Continue reading Occult Academy 8, Asobi 7
Highschool of the Dead 7 may be its best yet. Not just for the action (terrific again) but for why they decide to go into action in the first place. To start with they're temporarily safe, resting, keeping watch, being nearly naked, and talk turns to how they can survive. Saeko says that in this … Continue reading Highschool 7, Asobi 6
