Three finales: Last Exile Fam, Inu x Boku ss, High School Boys

I'm getting tired of writing farewells to series. Today I must write a couple more. Starting with Last Exile - Fam, the Silver Wing. Let's start with the big crisis. Luscinia has Sara in the center of the big white exile, everyone else is either trying to get to them, trying to destroy the exile … Continue reading Three finales: Last Exile Fam, Inu x Boku ss, High School Boys

BRS 7, Papa’s getting boring, High School Boys, and Inu x Boku 10,

The seams are beginning to show in Black Rock Shooter. I was afraid this would happen. What started as a bizarre and entertaining metaphor where young girls' pain is shouldered by fighters in another dimension is beginning to lose its power because they feel an obligation to explain everything. I shouldn't have expected anything else, … Continue reading BRS 7, Papa’s getting boring, High School Boys, and Inu x Boku 10,

Bakuman and Chihayafuru 22, Ano Natsu and High School Boys 9

Bakuman II 22 is one of the more lighthearted episodes, and considering the pressures the boys have been under, it's a relief. Of course, things are dire at first, with two failed attempts out of three, they have to come up with a decent idea. But Hattori is at their desperation meeting as well as … Continue reading Bakuman and Chihayafuru 22, Ano Natsu and High School Boys 9

BRS 5, Nisemonogatari 9, InuxBoku 8, High School Boys 8

Black Rock Shooter 5 almost makes sense. The fighting world is more of the same. This time it's Yomi and Mato's girls squaring off. The former now has all those skulls working for her while the latter, as usual, doesn't rely on anything else besides her blade(s) and that big gun of hers. Not that … Continue reading BRS 5, Nisemonogatari 9, InuxBoku 8, High School Boys 8

High School Boys 6, BRS 3, Ano Natsu 6, Bakuman 19

Daily Lives of High School Boys seems to work best for me when I get the full context. When one of the boys talks about the loneliness of playing NES games I don't really get what he's talking about because I don't play those games. The soccer sketch was a little better. It's when the … Continue reading High School Boys 6, BRS 3, Ano Natsu 6, Bakuman 19

Last Exile Fam 15, Amagami and HS Boys 5

After the wild events of the past two weeks of Last Exile - Fam everyone is content to get their affairs in order or become turncoats. It's also a way for us to see the current political, military, and exile-ly status of the principals. Most important, it's where where little Sara Augusta is finally convinced … Continue reading Last Exile Fam 15, Amagami and HS Boys 5

Natsume Yuujinchou shi 3, High School Boys 3-4, Inu x Boku SS 3

Natsume Yuujinchou Shi 4 is about Yobiko, a youkai skilled with voices who wants another youkai to repair an old letter ... no, it's about two lovers who meet every day at a shrine ... no it's about a youkai who falls in love with a human, ah, forget it. The whammy comes at the … Continue reading Natsume Yuujinchou shi 3, High School Boys 3-4, Inu x Boku SS 3
