Finales: Zvezda, Nobunagun, Dandy

The final episode of Sekai Seifuku: Bouryaku no Zvezda made absolutely no sense, and I couldn't care less. The good guys who weren't there while Kate was beginning her obviously suicidal confrontation with Kyoshiro showed up one by one, and just in the nick of time to rescue someone. And while they did we had … Continue reading Finales: Zvezda, Nobunagun, Dandy

Asukara 23, Zvezda 11, Dandy 12, Fool 12, Nisekoi 11

(I'm dumping what I got here because I'm off sightseeing for a couple days. Kyoto!) Nagi no Asukara 23 has the all the usual characters limping around emotionally, in love with people who don't appear to be in love with them, but who knows? Nobody seems to know what's going on. Manaka has an excuse; … Continue reading Asukara 23, Zvezda 11, Dandy 12, Fool 12, Nisekoi 11

Nisekoi 10, Dandy 11, Zvezda and Fool 10

Nisekoi 10 has the aftermath of the bath scene, with Chitoge possibly pissed off because Raku didn't see her "perfect body," though he actually did and is doing the decent thing by lying about it. Meanwhile, Raku had gotten a glimpse of Onodera's pretty damn good body as well, and now can't look her in … Continue reading Nisekoi 10, Dandy 11, Zvezda and Fool 10

Zvezda 7, Dandy 8, Nisekoi 7

Sekai Seifuku - Bouryaku no Zvezda 7, in all its glorious weirdness, actually gets back to an overarching plot line, two, actually. This show is always cheerfully weird, the fact that the society bent on conquering the world is distracted by a high school treasure hunt should remind us of that from the start. But … Continue reading Zvezda 7, Dandy 8, Nisekoi 7

Zvezda 6, Dandy, Nobunagun and Yakuindomo 7

Sekai Seifuku: Bouryaku no Zvezda 6 has Kate, Roboko, Natasha, and Itsuka entering Jimon's school as transfer students. This is relatively late in the series for them to do this. Normally the weirdos transfer in during episode 1 or 2. But they might not stay long; they're only there to look for the "Udo Bride," … Continue reading Zvezda 6, Dandy, Nobunagun and Yakuindomo 7

Chuuibyou Ren and Zvezda 4, Dandy and Fool 5

In Chuuibyou Ren 4, Shinka runs for the student council. In terms of high school election episodes it's not bad, no evil rivals undermining her campaign, no heartwarming scenes of everyone working together, because none of the other characters really care. But it was more painful than some because you sort of knew she was … Continue reading Chuuibyou Ren and Zvezda 4, Dandy and Fool 5

Kill 15, Asukara 16, catching up with Nourin and Zvezda

Kill la Kill 15 is so eager to get to the action that it cuts the OP short, and what we get is a lot of mayhem. First a battle to polish off Takarada, and most of Osaka, in a philosophical match between greed and fear (fear wins), then Ryuuko, da da-dAA!, shows up. Also … Continue reading Kill 15, Asukara 16, catching up with Nourin and Zvezda
