Captain Earth and Kanoko Flag 11, M3 9

Good news: Captain Earth 11 almost breaks out of the "wake up a new villain every week" rut they'd dug for themselves. The bad news is that they didn't. We met the new one last week, Setsuna, and two of the Midsummer force strike up a conversation with her while lounging about the pool. She's … Continue reading Captain Earth and Kanoko Flag 11, M3 9

Nanana 9, Mahouka and Captain Earth 10

Very little happened on the surface of Nanana's Buried Treasure 9, at least not until the end, and Nanana's sudden disappearance from the room doesn't feel like a departure, but a red herring.

Selector Infected WIXOSS is letting its story unfold just right. We have a lot of mysteries going on here. Besides the game itself and who's behind all this wishing stuff, … Continue reading Wixoss 4, Captain Earth 3-4, Sidonia 3, Nisekoi 16

Wixoss 2-3, Nisekoi 14, Captain Earth and Mahouka 2

Selector Infected WIXOSS is turning into an interesting series. I'm still wondering why so-and-so is getting another attack when it should be whozit's turn, and so forth, but overall they're doing a good job of explaining the game rules on the fly so we can get into the flow of battle without infodumps. And so … Continue reading Wixoss 2-3, Nisekoi 14, Captain Earth and Mahouka 2
