Elevens: Hamefura, Kakushigoto, ToG, Nami

Hamefura 11 spends the first half of the episode or thereabouts in a static mode, with each character (save Maria, who is still captured) talking about the comatose Catarina and what she means to them. It could have been dull sequence, but we know and like the characters well enough at this point to understand … Continue reading Elevens: Hamefura, Kakushigoto, ToG, Nami

Tens: Kakushigoto, Tower, Nami, Hamefura

They want the truth. Kakushigoto 10 doesn't have much theme-play this week. The closes thing we get is Hime being a bad girl for eating the cookies and her dad being a bad man for being unmotivated at work … until Hime wins a three-day holiday at an onsen (bring the dog!) and he now … Continue reading Tens: Kakushigoto, Tower, Nami, Hamefura

Nines: Nami, Tower of God, Kakushigoto, Hamefura

When it became clear that Minare would meet Mitsuo again in Nami yo Kiitekure 9, well the episode pretty much played out like I expected, though I was worried that Minare would get sucked in by deadbeat Mitsuo's charms. That did happen, after the expected prequel where she plans various ways to kill or injure … Continue reading Nines: Nami, Tower of God, Kakushigoto, Hamefura

Eights: Tower of God, Nami, Kakushigoto, Hamefura, and Railgun T 15

Tower of God 8 continues with the team-tag game and it falls completely apart. Khun has a strategy A and a strategy B which both fail because Quant is too powerful, but somehow manages to trick him into falling to the bottom of the tower, then betrays his own team and helps him get back … Continue reading Eights: Tower of God, Nami, Kakushigoto, Hamefura, and Railgun T 15

Sevens: Tower of God, RailgunT, kiitekure, Kakushigoto, Hamefura

Tower of God 7 takes care of the important backstory stuff first. Anaak and Endorsi continue their fight with flashbacks and infodumps to explain why they are at odds. It seems Princesses are forbidden to have a child or even sex, but Anaak is a child of a princess, so now we know why her … Continue reading Sevens: Tower of God, RailgunT, kiitekure, Kakushigoto, Hamefura

Tower of God, Hamefura, Kakushigoto 5-6, and Nami just 6

Tower of God 5's intrigue is beginning to outweigh the story. We get people like Lero Ro and that other guy asking meaningful and double-edged questions about various people taking the test, and I got tired of figuring it out, especially since one of them doesn't want Bam to continue, since he has the power … Continue reading Tower of God, Hamefura, Kakushigoto 5-6, and Nami just 6

Nami yo Kiitekure 4-5, Railgun T 13, Kakushigoto 4

So Nami yo Kiitekure 4 introduces who might be the last of the regular characters, or at least the ones capable of making messes of lives. This week's plot has the restaurant owner Takarada getting injured so Nakahara and Minare (rehired) run the place alone, the former treating it as a married couple situation and … Continue reading Nami yo Kiitekure 4-5, Railgun T 13, Kakushigoto 4

BNA and Ranman 2, Nami and Kakushigoto 3, Railgun T 12

BNA 2 lets us look a little more at the city where Michiru finds herself, and it's not pretty. On the surface it's like any other city, long lines at the city office, etc, but Michiru keeps landing in the thick of the seedy underside, where, tracking down her wallet, she winds up teaching some … Continue reading BNA and Ranman 2, Nami and Kakushigoto 3, Railgun T 12

Twos: Tower of God, Kakushigoto, Nami no Kiitekure, Hamefura, Houkago Teibou Nishi

The time it takes to watch the new shows as they're being released allows me the time to think about which shows I really want to watch. After a week I think on the first batch and say "Do I really want to watch that?" Turns out with Tower of God, I do, at least … Continue reading Twos: Tower of God, Kakushigoto, Nami no Kiitekure, Hamefura, Houkago Teibou Nishi
