Laplace finale, CC 12, Seiyuu and Biyori Repeat 11, Teekyuu 59

Rampo Kitan: Game of Laplace is the first show of the season to finish, and it does so in no better or worse fashion than the ridiculous final story arc permits. Namikoshi's nefarious plan to create an explosion of twenty faces for society to deal with is near fruition with his own death.  Meanwhile Kobayashi … Continue reading Laplace finale, CC 12, Seiyuu and Biyori Repeat 11, Teekyuu 59

Laplace 10, CC 11

Laplace 3-5, Seiyuu 4, Teekyuu 51

Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace 3 manages to be sinister and eccentric at the same time.  The former is demonstrated by Sachiko's murder; the show had that all set up to be a happy ending, the girl cured, happy, and going to school, only to turn it on its head and make her another victim.  … Continue reading Laplace 3-5, Seiyuu 4, Teekyuu 51
