Asukara 25, Yakuindomo ?, Nisekoi and Fool 12

The events of Nagi no Asukara 25 seems to be all about gods playing dice with the loves of adolescents and young adults. Actually, for a while it looked like things had settled down. Hikari loves Manaka, and if Manaka could, she'd love him back. Miuna isn't happy about this because she loves Hikari, too, … Continue reading Asukara 25, Yakuindomo ?, Nisekoi and Fool 12

Asukara 23, Zvezda 11, Dandy 12, Fool 12, Nisekoi 11

(I'm dumping what I got here because I'm off sightseeing for a couple days. Kyoto!) Nagi no Asukara 23 has the all the usual characters limping around emotionally, in love with people who don't appear to be in love with them, but who knows? Nobody seems to know what's going on. Manaka has an excuse; … Continue reading Asukara 23, Zvezda 11, Dandy 12, Fool 12, Nisekoi 11

Nisekoi 10, Dandy 11, Zvezda and Fool 10

Nisekoi 10 has the aftermath of the bath scene, with Chitoge possibly pissed off because Raku didn't see her "perfect body," though he actually did and is doing the decent thing by lying about it. Meanwhile, Raku had gotten a glimpse of Onodera's pretty damn good body as well, and now can't look her in … Continue reading Nisekoi 10, Dandy 11, Zvezda and Fool 10

Those Nobunaga shows, and Kill la Kill 22

Unfortunately, in Nobunaga the Fool 9, Caesar isn't dead. I guess I shouldn't have expected him to be, but smirking bishie villains drive me up the wall. Now he's teamed up with Uesugi Kenshin, another clan overload, and a bishie himself, but doesn't smirk and actually seems to be a decent sort; he's got this … Continue reading Those Nobunaga shows, and Kill la Kill 22

Fool 8, Nobunagun and Yakuindomo2 9

Nobunaga the Fool 8 again removes any hope of serious intrigue by rushing through the story. We have Caesar, with the loyalty of Takeda behind him and lusting after Ichihime, settling in, all ready for some intrigue (at least he's plotting things), but Nobunaga decides to go ahead and attack and ruin his fun. There's … Continue reading Fool 8, Nobunagun and Yakuindomo2 9

Chuuibyou Ren and Zvezda 4, Dandy and Fool 5

In Chuuibyou Ren 4, Shinka runs for the student council. In terms of high school election episodes it's not bad, no evil rivals undermining her campaign, no heartwarming scenes of everyone working together, because none of the other characters really care. But it was more painful than some because you sort of knew she was … Continue reading Chuuibyou Ren and Zvezda 4, Dandy and Fool 5
