Four very silly shows

Let's start with perhaps the silliest. A lot of fighting in Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon 17. Five of our numerous heroes wind up in a spell that pits them against some of England's finest, and if any one of them loses the winner gets to challenge Toori, who's still on that date of his. Let's … Continue reading Four very silly shows

Two very good episodes and Yuru Yuri II 5

Rinne no Lagrange II 4 or 16 has no big action scenes apart from one poorly-piloted mecha that gets shot down, and yet the episode is a delight.

LagrangeII 3 (15), Yuru Yuri 4, Horizon II 3, Driland 3

I zip through a number of episode twos of little value

Natsuyuki Rendezvous 2 leaves me a little worried. It looks for all the world that we're going to get twelve or however many episodes of the three unhappy people spinning their wheels. Shimao-kun will continue to interfere with Ryousuke's moves on Rokka, because he clings to her. Rokka will play around with the thought of … Continue reading I zip through a number of episode twos of little value

Episode dump with a couple of finales

The Ikoku Meiro no Croisée finale has another Yune/Claude conflict, Yune trying to track down a nonexistent cat (though the bell sound, ever explained, was a nice touch), a crisis, and we finally learn enough about Claude's grump of a father to learn why Claude's a grump himself. Not for the first time, Yune becomes … Continue reading Episode dump with a couple of finales
