In Kinsou no Vermeil 11, as expected, we and Alto get escorted to Vermeil's dark past, and it's done well, emotionally. She was brought up in a small church by a nice Sister, a cool big sister character, and a couple of kids, a happy family, until her horns are discovered and a plague hits … Continue reading Some finales and near-finales

Mostly 9s and 10s
The plague! Isekai Yakkyoku 9 begins and ends with some evil asshole named Camus, first as a flashback by Bruno, who wonders where Camus went wrong, and then at the end, where he, glowing slightly and tunelessly humming, walks about a deserted city, followed by rats. Is this the capital city? Hard to say, but … Continue reading Mostly 9s and 10s
Sevens, eights, and a six.
After the death and resurrection and shared heart and love declarations last week, Kinsou no Vermeil takes a little down-time in episode 7. We get a scene between Vermeil and Lilia affirming no bad blood between them, even if Lilia now knows Vermeil's a demon. Vermeil doesn't quite fit into a school uniform, to the … Continue reading Sevens, eights, and a six.
More sixes: Lycoris, Tensei Kenja, Vermeil, Abyss 2, Yofukashi, Soredemo Ayumu
In Lycoris Recoil 6 we learn that … Kurumi is pretty much responsible for the botched mission that led to the loss of those guns and killed some Lycorises, and got Takina in hot water with the DA and led to her demotion. The show almost makes a joke about it, and I suppose Kurumi … Continue reading More sixes: Lycoris, Tensei Kenja, Vermeil, Abyss 2, Yofukashi, Soredemo Ayumu
Threes, fours, and fives
Her majesty, before Farma's treatment ... Isekai Yakkyoku 3 and 4 gives Farma the same problem Kelvin had in that other show. His skills are too amazing to be kept secret. It comes out when he and his father Bruno go to treat the queen for what turns out to be tuberculosis, or "the white … Continue reading Threes, fours, and fives
Threes and fours: Lycoris, Tensei Kenja, Vermeil, Ojisan
C'mon Takina, lighten up! Lycoris Recoil moves away from caper of the week to have Chisato and Takina go off to a secret base, for Chisato to renew her license, and for Takina to confront Kusunoki the boss. But the point of the story is a little revenge. Fuki, the lycoris who slugged Takina for … Continue reading Threes and fours: Lycoris, Tensei Kenja, Vermeil, Ojisan
Some 2s, even though 3s are coming out.
LIttle do they know ... On to episode 2s, starting with Lycoris Recoil, with about as good a second episode as the first. The girls get an assignment, to escort a hacker named Walnut (who owned the apartment we saw blow up in episode 1) to a safe place while another hacker, Robota, sends goons … Continue reading Some 2s, even though 3s are coming out.
Summer 2022 2
A burned-out land where Yuji's foot is about to appear. Next is Tensei Kenja no Isekai Life, where some adventurers are drinking and laughing at Gale, a guy who swears he saw a slime use literal fire-power. Our hero, a tamer (thus low-powered, so everyone thinks) Yuji shows up, back from a quest, and, whoops, … Continue reading Summer 2022 2
