The finale finales of Summer 2015: Jitsu wa, Seiyuu

Jitsu wa Watashi wa 13 left me with burning question: did Youko's dad really get his memories erased by the flying hammer of forgetfulness?  I like to think he didn't; that would show a genuine change of heart rather than then just a silly plot device.  The series had plenty of those already, really too … Continue reading The finale finales of Summer 2015: Jitsu wa, Seiyuu

Twelves: Charlotte, Jitsu wa, Seiyuu, and Biyori: Repeat finale

After all that happened last week it was a probably necessary for Charlotte 12 to be a sort of healing episode.  We watch Yuu slowly rehabilitate while at least one other ability user blames him for letting Kumagami die, the idiot.  But it does place a sense of responsibility on Yuu and leads to his … Continue reading Twelves: Charlotte, Jitsu wa, Seiyuu, and Biyori: Repeat finale

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

Jitsu wa, Seiyuu, Biyori: Repeat 10, Teekyuu 58

In Jitsu wa Watashi wa 10 I caught the phrase.  Mikan's possessed glasses says it as she's about to confess Mikan's love for Asahi.  Trouble is, Aizawa was wearing them.  So now everyone thinks Aizawa is in love with Asahi, which she is, but she doesn't want to say it.  The glasses thought they were … Continue reading Jitsu wa, Seiyuu, Biyori: Repeat 10, Teekyuu 58

BiyoriRepeat, Laplace, and Seiyuu 9, Teekyuu 57

Non Non Biyori 9 is mainly about Natsumi, so there's a lot of lying and stupid behavior in play.  This show is weakest when it shows antics like this, Natsumi trying to cover up the fact that she and Hikage ate all the moon-viewing dumplings, or in another episode, Hotarou trying to hide all of … Continue reading BiyoriRepeat, Laplace, and Seiyuu 9, Teekyuu 57

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

Yuki-chan finale, Jitsu wa Watashi and Sore ga Seiyuu 2-3

The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan finished up without me even noticing.  Not that there was a lot to do.  Kyon had that dilemma of what to do around Yuki, when the other Yuki had confessed to him.  I liked his strategy, telling her he would have fallen for her (the other Yuki) but saying it … Continue reading Yuki-chan finale, Jitsu wa Watashi and Sore ga Seiyuu 2-3
