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

Owarimonogatari 8, Subete ga F 7, HO 8

There are episodes that aired earlier than Owarimonogatari 8, but nothing as good, I reckon, so it jumps the queue.  I'll get to HO and those magical-sword-HS-harem shows later.  Having said that, episode 8 has a lot fewer surprises than last week's, and unfortunately I have to remember the plots to all the previous and … Continue reading Owarimonogatari 8, Subete ga F 7, HO 8

HO 7, Subete ga F 6, Owarimonogatari 7

I'm going to punt on Heavy Object 7.  I didn't understand Oceania's evil plan to bring attention to itself by massacring its own citizens, or how Seewax screwed it up.  The bit at the end, with the boss looking at a bunch of child-clones (anything to do with the child that got killed in the … Continue reading HO 7, Subete ga F 6, Owarimonogatari 7

Sakurako 5, Subete ga F 5, HO 6, 35th 5, Teekyuu 65

Well, that was a nice bit of holiday, so I decided to let a whole week's worth of episodes go by before I wrote about anything again ... And when I do, with Sakurako-san, I find I have absolutely nothing worthwhile to say about it.  Except nice dog! and so who IS that character who … Continue reading Sakurako 5, Subete ga F 5, HO 6, 35th 5, Teekyuu 65

Sakurako, 3, F 3, HO 3-4

Another week, another body for Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru 3.  The only difference is this time there is no foul play.  Otherwise we have Sakurako and Boy out on a trek that I don't believe was ever explained.  Sakurako wouldn't have gone out there for the watermelons or the caves.  Maybe … Continue reading Sakurako, 3, F 3, HO 3-4

Concrete 2-3, Subete ga F 2, Taimadou 2, OPM 3

Concrete Revolutio 2 (and probably 3--I haven't seen it yet) settles down after its nearly incomprehensible opening episode and starts introducing new characters and getting us used to their odd world.  #2 at least is a better episode for the coherency.  We meet Fuurouta, the child, a "ghost" as they call him, who can shapeshift … Continue reading Concrete 2-3, Subete ga F 2, Taimadou 2, OPM 3
