A passing glance at shows I watched but didn’t write much about, if anything

Now that many of the season's shows are wrapping up, I thought I'd give thoughts about the ones that I actually wound up finishing but haven't written about much, or at all. I polished off RDG last week, so I'll ignore it here. For me, Hataraku Maou-Sama! never got past the question of how such … Continue reading A passing glance at shows I watched but didn’t write much about, if anything

New: Muromi-san, and sort of new: Ore no Imouto etc 2

Beginning season two of Ore no Imouto was a good palate cleanser after Attack on Titan. Even if not much really happened. All the episode really tries to do is settle Kirino back into life at home, reintroduce us to all the characters, and update a few plot points, for which I'm grateful because I … Continue reading New: Muromi-san, and sort of new: Ore no Imouto etc 2

Tens: Star Driver, Ore no Imouto

Continuing the nines: Star Driver, Ore no Imouto

She hops from her bedroom window onto her bus, charges into the men's room at school, talks to crows, and leaps into trees. Everyone else … Continue reading Continuing the nines: Star Driver, Ore no Imouto

Sevens: Bakuman, Ore no Imouto

There are small events in Bakuman 7 but they take up little time. Most of the episode revolves around Saiko and Miho's odd relationship. By agreement they cannot speak to one another, and now they're assigned classroom seats together. Nervous at first, Saiko starts scribbling innocent questions in his notebook and she responds. The nervousness … Continue reading Sevens: Bakuman, Ore no Imouto
