Stray Dogs and Tanaka-kun finale, Sousei 12, Kuromukuro 11

I had no idea this episode of Bungou Stray Dogs was the finale until it ended with no preview and I checked sources. Well, it was a good episode to end with. We have the appearance of the Guild, basically rich, gifted assholes from America with enormous power and influence in their hands. We already … Continue reading Stray Dogs and Tanaka-kun finale, Sousei 12, Kuromukuro 11

Asterix2 finale, Stray Dogs, Sousei and Tanaka-kun 11

Gakusen Toshi Asterisk season 2 has a predictable finish. They have to set up a new season, after all. First we get an adorable bedside flashback with Ayato and all the girls, well, not Claudia. It's a good thing the scene is cute because otherwise, apart from a few more details concerning Ophelia's power and … Continue reading Asterix2 finale, Stray Dogs, Sousei and Tanaka-kun 11

Kuromukuro 10, Asterisk 11, Tanaka-kun and Flying Witch 10

Kuromukuro 10 gives us one or two dollops of information and spends the rest of its time with pointless side bits. The surrendering bad guy, Fusnarie, gets questioned by the UN and tells us that they invaded 450 years ago but the advance party was driven off by the Black Glongur (relic), though of course … Continue reading Kuromukuro 10, Asterisk 11, Tanaka-kun and Flying Witch 10

Bungou, Kuromukuro, Tanaka-kun 9

Bungou Stray Dogs 9 looked at first to be following the story: Kyouko, the assassin-girl, and Atsushi, the boy who feels sorry for her, not to mention what is happening with Dazai, but now it looks like the two incidents are two different stories with two different motives, with only Kyouko linking them. One is … Continue reading Bungou, Kuromukuro, Tanaka-kun 9

Eights: Bakuon, Sousei, Bungou, Tanaka-kun

A pleasant two or three-parter in Bakuon!! 8. The first part is all about getting Hijiri her license, when she's never even been on a bicycle before. So she falls down a lot and gets enraged. However, I'd say this episode was more of an homage to her practice ride, the Honda Super Cub, which … Continue reading Eights: Bakuon, Sousei, Bungou, Tanaka-kun

Bungou 7, Kumamiko 8, Kuromukura and Tanaka-kun 7

Bungou Stray Dogs 7, while not appearing to be, is actually about Kunikida and his ideals, though, like the first part of the story last week, you hardly notice it, at least until the end, when after an entertaining enough battle where the bomb guy, a smirking bishie and thus my least favorite anime character … Continue reading Bungou 7, Kumamiko 8, Kuromukura and Tanaka-kun 7

Sixes: Kuromukuro, Tanaka-kun, Flying Witch

Kurumukuro 6 is an extensive mecha battle where they manage to smash up the airport, which is no fun for me because I've never actually been there. Good battle anyway. It starts with a buildup using clips from last week and then we have the three-on-one with Kennosuke/Yukina vs the Yellow Crab and the two … Continue reading Sixes: Kuromukuro, Tanaka-kun, Flying Witch
