Kimi ni Todoke 15

The new schedule continues to mess me up, so I'll look at only one episode again. Kimi ni Todoke 15 starts with Sawako's absolute victory! No, she and Kazehaya don't confess, but she wins at something just as important. She gets Kurumi to talk honestly about Kazehaya! The romance can come later. Right now the … Continue reading Kimi ni Todoke 15

Cross Game 40, Kimi ni Todoke 14

Cross Game 40 is another “move the pieces around slightly” episode, where people talk about little things, like love and baseball. The first little story is the oddest; there's a stalker following Akane around. Kou and Aoba are both concerned; so am I. It's a slightly more serious thing than this show usually presents, especially … Continue reading Cross Game 40, Kimi ni Todoke 14

Kimi ni Todoke 13, Chu-Bra 1 (and done), Sora no Woto 1

Before I jump into what I have of the Winter season it's nice to start with something familiar. Kimi ni Todoke 13 starts right where it ended last time, with Kazehaya, led by Kurumi, spotting Sawako and Ryou together. Here, Kazehaya could do one of two things: he could run off in despair, which would … Continue reading Kimi ni Todoke 13, Chu-Bra 1 (and done), Sora no Woto 1

Sasameki 11, Kimi ni Todoke 12, Yumeiro 12

Another nice episode of Sasameki Koto, and a more subdued one than we've recently gotten. Ironic because this is your basic water park episode and all that means. Let's see, we got one confirmed couple, two would-be couples, and two comic relief characters. There's some jockeying about for position since the would-be's cannot be mixed, … Continue reading Sasameki 11, Kimi ni Todoke 12, Yumeiro 12

Elevens: Railgun, Kimi ni Todoke, Yumeiro

In Railgun 11 we get Uiharu's rescue, a possible antidote to the Level-Upper blackout syndrome, for want of a better name, but mainly we get lots of Kiyama. After a battle between Kiyama and Anti-Skills forces, and the former's defeat at the hands of Misaka, some scientific hocus-pocus enables Misaka to view Kiyama's memories and … Continue reading Elevens: Railgun, Kimi ni Todoke, Yumeiro

Some Episode 10’s: Kimi ni Todoke, Railgun, Yumeiro

Kurumi continues her assault in Kimi ni Todoke, but its nature is still up in the air. It seems it's to develop a conflict within Sawako, so that she has to choose between Kazehaya and Kurumi's interests and make her miserable. Or something. To build up the friendship Kurumi interrupts whatever Sawako is doing at … Continue reading Some Episode 10’s: Kimi ni Todoke, Railgun, Yumeiro

Seitokai no Ichizon 9, Kimi ni Todoke 9, Trapeze 8

I suppose I shouldn't have watched any anime yesterday after seeing Kiki's Delivery Service for the first time. Anything else is bound to be a letdown. So I chose Seitokai no Ichizon 9 in hopes that its fast delivery and silly, referential humor would provide at least a change of pace. It pretty much succeeded. … Continue reading Seitokai no Ichizon 9, Kimi ni Todoke 9, Trapeze 8

Kimi ni Todoke 8, Sasameki Koto 7, and (sigh) 11Eyes 8 …

Kini ni Todoke sure takes its sweet time doing anything. I thought we'd get to the rumor-mongering today, but the only new rumor we get are that Sawako can bring good fortune simply by smiling at you. But of course when they try they get this: Certainly an improvement upon the old rumors of death … Continue reading Kimi ni Todoke 8, Sasameki Koto 7, and (sigh) 11Eyes 8 …

Kimi ni Todoke 6, Yumeiro 6, Kiddy-Girl and 5

Wow, there's no-inbetween for Kimi ni Todoke. Either Sawako is deliriously happy or beat-down depressed. We start ep 6 with the latter, of course, with girls trying intimidate her over the rumors. And, thanks to the law of averages, Yano and Yoshido finally overhear a complete conversation and rush in to save her. Good things … Continue reading Kimi ni Todoke 6, Yumeiro 6, Kiddy-Girl and 5
