Chu2koi 6, Pet na Kanojo 5, Joshiraku finale

It's looking like not much will really happen in Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!, but that's all right. Episode 6 is the best yet. I can't think of a moment in it that wasn't fun to watch. There IS a story here but it pops up almost at random at the halfway point when Isshiki, … Continue reading Chu2koi 6, Pet na Kanojo 5, Joshiraku finale

Sukitte 4, Chu2koi 5, and some Joshiraku and a Wooser screenshot for the hell of it

I'd hate to think that this is going to be the routine for Sukitte Ii na yo: Mei encounters something unpleasant about Yamato or his world, and gets all grumpy until they make up at the end. Okay, that's not really fair. There were differences between Mei's past blue funks and the righteous anger she … Continue reading Sukitte 4, Chu2koi 5, and some Joshiraku and a Wooser screenshot for the hell of it

Introducing Shin Sekai Yori, also SAO 13 and Joshiraku 9

The first series of the fall season has arrived, all bright and sparkly! And, in the case of Shin Sekai Yori, dripping with style. It was hard to tell what exactly was going on in the opening episode, especially at first, because the show decided to throw a bunch of cut scenes and blurry art … Continue reading Introducing Shin Sekai Yori, also SAO 13 and Joshiraku 9

Horizon II 22, Joshiraku7, Penguin, er, Polar Bear 22

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon II 21 nearly buried me alive with talk. I swear, it's all action or all talk with this show. No in-betweens. First we have Innocentius and Tachibana barging in on the high-level negotiations and asking why they're fine with killing Double Bloody Mary when they fought to save Horizon. I could … Continue reading Horizon II 22, Joshiraku7, Penguin, er, Polar Bear 22

Four shows, written on the fly, not worth reading …

My posts might be like this for the next couple of days, if I post at all. If someone says too much they can usually apologize for it and say they let their anger get the better of them, or that was the beer talking, something like that. But that only excuses their saying the … Continue reading Four shows, written on the fly, not worth reading …

Those silly shows again

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon 19 finishes up its story arc, I think. Well, at least the five duels were concluded and interrupted. First we get a history lesson from Master Scarred (cloak-girl) about how Catherine, Anne and Henry VIII all got whisked off by fairies at some points in their lives, which is linked somehow … Continue reading Those silly shows again

Kokoro 4, Tari Tari 5, Electricity has declined 5, Joshiraku 3

Kokoro Connect 4 manages to salvage a dreary episode with something unexpected. After Inaba has told Taichi that she can't trust anyone, she was born that way, etc., he gets her to say this to the rest of the gang, and gets humorous variations on the theme that basically say "What's the big deal?" Aoki's … Continue reading Kokoro 4, Tari Tari 5, Electricity has declined 5, Joshiraku 3
