2015 Fall new shows 4 … yes, I’m behind …

Yes, I'm way behind.  Sorry about that.  And I may not be able to catch up for a while.  For now I'll put up what I have. Concrete Revolutio is an odd thing that seems to be about superheroes keeping earth safe and people who try to keep the superheroes safe. We keep flashback-and-forwarding, so … Continue reading 2015 Fall new shows 4 … yes, I’m behind …

Lagrange 23, Yuru Yuri II finale

In shows like Rinne no Lagrange, with all its intergalactic battling and cosmic light shows, I expect that some of it won't make sense. And in the case of episode 23 I don't care. There seem to be two themes at work here. The obvious one is exemplified by the battle each girl has with … Continue reading Lagrange 23, Yuru Yuri II finale

Lagrange 22, Yuru Yuri II 11, Horizon II 23

Rinne no Lagrange 22 brings all its strengths together and produces a huge episode. Not its greatest, but damn close. If there's a flaw to the series it's that the events sometimes get so cosmic that we lose our connection to it. That's because the show is centered around and grounded by Madoka, a Kamagawa … Continue reading Lagrange 22, Yuru Yuri II 11, Horizon II 23

Horizon II 22 or something, Yuru Yuri II 10, Polar Bear I 23

As usual with Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon II, I spend more time trying to figure out who the hell everyone is and what their relationship is with everyone else than I do following the story. This time we pay a lot of attention to Chancellor Segundo, who is leading the Armada against Musashi in what … Continue reading Horizon II 22 or something, Yuru Yuri II 10, Polar Bear I 23

Five episodes that more or less annoyed me

I'll probably watch Natsuyuki Rendezvous through to the end, but it gets harder and harder. It looks like Ryuusuke has found a way through the ridiculous impasse by the end of the episode, but his impetus, apart from scarily getting caught there forever by dwelling on the past, like Shimao perhaps, are unclear. Fairy Rokka … Continue reading Five episodes that more or less annoyed me

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
