SAO 10, Dandy and Nozaki-kun 9-10

Sword Art Online 10 starts well but falls into a hole, or cave, halfway through. It's not that they shouldn't have put that cave scene in the story; it was necessary to clear the air between them, and to allow Sinon to tell her story and make a decision or two about herself. In fact, … Continue reading SAO 10, Dandy and Nozaki-kun 9-10

Tokyo ESP 8, Glasslip 9, Free! 9, Space Dandy 8

Tokyo ESP 8 is a mixed back of little events to set things up for what looks to be a big battle arc.

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
