Finales: Tiger and Bunny, Sacred Seven

Tiger and Bunny 23 ended with Kotetsu dead and Maverick still free. Episode 24 contains many of the cliches that final episodes do, but has a thoroughly happy, though silly ending. I'm satisfied. That's all I really wanted from this show. It didn't start well. First we get a recap of the death scene, leaving … Continue reading Finales: Tiger and Bunny, Sacred Seven

Episode dump, Natsume, Usagi Drop, too many others

Natsume Yuujinchou San 9 begins a two-parter, but it's clear that the underlying theme will again be friendship, the "Trust them" variation. Most interesting to me was the way Natsume and his friend Tanuma react to the situation. Natsume can interact with youkai and Tanuma can sort of see them, so there's nothing they have … Continue reading Episode dump, Natsume, Usagi Drop, too many others

Episode catchup dump post

Ikoku Meiro no Croisée 8 is another good episode, though it's a mystery to tired ol' me how the tension between Claude and Camille came about. All I know was that their little scene had so many secret meanings and unspoken facts going on that it tired me out just watching it. But it looks … Continue reading Episode catchup dump post

Penguindrum 6, Sacred Seven 7, Baka to Test Ni 5-6

Very little actual plot happens in Mawaru Penguindrum 6. We do get some answers but we also get more questions. And a lot more colorful weirdness. We learn what the diary is. It belonged to Momoka, Ringo's sister, who died long ago. And it puts a twist on Ringo's obsession with Keiju. Before, I had … Continue reading Penguindrum 6, Sacred Seven 7, Baka to Test Ni 5-6

Usagi Drop, Hanusaka, Sacred Seven, Prince-Sama, Idolmaster–a mess of a post while I catch up

While I was too busy to write last week, I wasn't too busy to watch an episode or two and scribble notes, which I've hastily assembled here and dare to call a coherent blog post. Usagi Drop 4 and 5 manage to balance Daikichi's problems with the sheer cuteness of the situation. The big crises, … Continue reading Usagi Drop, Hanusaka, Sacred Seven, Prince-Sama, Idolmaster–a mess of a post while I catch up

A few more things I watched before I stop watching for a few days

Because I can, I will tell you some more of the things I've been watching before I take an actual vacation ... Idolm@ster 3 splits the story between the girls' performance in the sticks, and Yukiho's fear of men and dogs. The sticks part works all right. The girls adapt and help out in ways … Continue reading A few more things I watched before I stop watching for a few days

Continuing with Ro Kyu Bu!, Sacred Seven

If you looked at pictures and a description of Ro Kyu Bu! I bet you'd know the show is about elementary school girls playing basketball, and their high school freshman coach, and this being an anime show, you'd expect certain other things to happen. Sadly, you'd be right. Though some of the fetishistic clichés are … Continue reading Continuing with Ro Kyu Bu!, Sacred Seven
