LWA 23, Uchouten Kazoku and Sakura Q 11

As expected, Little Witch Academia 23 is a mopey, sad episode where Akko, repeatedly told "A believing heart is your magic," finds there's nothing to believe in at the moment and vanishes, while characters spend most of their time worrying about her. The rest is Ursula's flashback to Chariot's wild days, and we learn an … Continue reading LWA 23, Uchouten Kazoku and Sakura Q 11

Sakura Quest 10, Saekano2 9, Re:Creators 10

The man climbing out of the pod during the thunderstorm in Sakura Quest 10 no doubt has a mundane and slightly funny explanation, but it came as a surprise at the end of a typical episode, where once again little bits here and there are thrown together to make a not supernatural at all story. … Continue reading Sakura Quest 10, Saekano2 9, Re:Creators 10

Re:Creators, Uchouten Kazoku 7, Sakura Quest 8, Saekano2 7

Sakura Quest 4, and catching up with Uchouten Kazoku and LWA

Sakura Quest 4 has Yoshi discovering the wood art tradition her area has and trying schemes to re-popularize it. Two woodworkers get the focus: Tatsuo, who is sympathetic, and the gifted Kazushi, who is definitely not. I think he, and Ba-san, have a point that trying to make traditional art modern by sticking the on … Continue reading Sakura Quest 4, and catching up with Uchouten Kazoku and LWA

Stumbling to catch up: Sakura Quest and HInako note 2-3

Sakura Quest has settled into it's cute slice-of-life routine without a misstep and with much efficiency. All four of the side girls had been introduced by episode two, and at the end of episode 3 they became members of Yoshi's court. Meanwhile, Yoshi herself has accepted her role of queen, in spite of the daily … Continue reading Stumbling to catch up: Sakura Quest and HInako note 2-3
