The last finales, I think: Sakurako-san, 35 (sorry, late)

Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru ends, right when it was getting started. We start with Shoutarou moping about, wanting to get in touch with Sakurako and getting no reply when he does. This leads to a flashback about when they first met, the middle-schooler Shoutarou moping about (he mopes about when not … Continue reading The last finales, I think: Sakurako-san, 35 (sorry, late)

Subete ga F ni Naru finale, Sakurako-san and 35 11

Just some quick thoughts. After watching Subete ga F ni Naru's finale I wondered what would have happened if Sakurako-san had been at that lab. She would have slapped on her gloves examined the body, and concluded that the corpse wasn't Dr. Magata. Well, any competent detective would have done the same. In other words, … Continue reading Subete ga F ni Naru finale, Sakurako-san and 35 11

Our two mystery shows reach episode ten

Sakurako-san 10 looks to be the start of a nice, juicy detective story. We find out early on that Hitoe, one of Isozaki's students, has gone missing. That makes her the second of a trio of former students to vanish, and Isozaki blames himself. And so he, Sakurako, and Shoutarou going from one girl's family … Continue reading Our two mystery shows reach episode ten

F, Sakurako-san, and 35 9, Teekyuu 69

In spite of my complaints about the pacing, I found myself looking forward to Subete ga F ni Naru 9, if only because noitaminA shows traditionally run only 11 episodes and so they had to start moving along. This week's breakthrough by Souhei (complete with "how could I be so STUPID?" lines) was ingenious but … Continue reading F, Sakurako-san, and 35 9, Teekyuu 69

Comet Lucifer, OPM, and Sakurako-san 8, Teekyuu 68

Comet Lucifer 8 goes from blood death and getting slaughtered to happy la-la new-agey unicorn lands without the unicorns.  For the former, we have lots of flashbacks of Do Mon.  We know he was a grizzled soldier and allies with Gus, and now we know he used to watch over Sougo's genius mother and obviously … Continue reading Comet Lucifer, OPM, and Sakurako-san 8, Teekyuu 68

Sevens: Comet Lucifer, OPM, Sakurako-san

It looks like Comet Lucifer ran out of ideas on its way to the story.  What we get in episode 7 is more of what we saw in episode 6, except no one's getting married.  They travel for a while, exchange some encouragement, the bad guys attack, Moura gets beaten up again while Sougo and … Continue reading Sevens: Comet Lucifer, OPM, Sakurako-san

Quick sixes: OPM, Sakurako-san, Teekyuux11

One Punch Man 6, apart from Saitama having to find villains to beat in order to keep his hero status, is more of the same, mostly.  Fortunately it's still funny.  Learning that he has to catch a villain a week in order to keep his hero status, Saitama runs around the city looking for something … Continue reading Quick sixes: OPM, Sakurako-san, Teekyuux11
