Finales: Mekaku, Kanojo Flag, also maybe the end of Mahouka for me

Mekaku City Actors ends (to my surprise--I thought it was a two-cours show) happily, though I still don't know what the hell happened. So Marry, with the help of her friends, decides not to wish on a dream future, but instead face the real one alongside her friends, whom she was trying to save by … Continue reading Finales: Mekaku, Kanojo Flag, also maybe the end of Mahouka for me

Sidonia 11, Mahouka 12, Mekaku 11, Kanojo Flag 12

Knights of Sidonia 11 is almost nothing but battle, and since they're not done yet, the episode feels inconclusive. We've seen just about everything before. I don't mean that in a bad way. We're used to the symbols they put up on the battle screens, the ships taking off, the launching of another giant pill, … Continue reading Sidonia 11, Mahouka 12, Mekaku 11, Kanojo Flag 12

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. The rest of it was basically Hiiyo being nasty to everyone he meets, and the rest of the group banding together to … Continue reading Nanana 9, Mahouka and Captain Earth 10

Kanojo Flag and Mahouka 9, Mekaku 8

Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara 9 continues mixing the inane harem group with harem-leader Souta's premonition and fears of death and now adds more palace intrigue. Souta and the princesses (Hakua now an accepted member of the harem) arrive safely in Bladefield where they meet the crown prince, soon to be king, Elia, who actually … Continue reading Kanojo Flag and Mahouka 9, Mekaku 8

Nisekoi finale, Mahouka, Captain Earth, and Kanojo no Flag 8

Nisekoi ends, rather early in the season, too. That's okay, I guess. It's not like they're going to get anything solved, anyway. And we get the Romeo and Juliet that the series deserves. One way to get through a high school series is seeing how well they do the seemingly obligatory rituals, and the school … Continue reading Nisekoi finale, Mahouka, Captain Earth, and Kanojo no Flag 8

Ping Pong and Nanana 5, Nisekoi 18, Mahouka 6

Ping Pong 5 lowers the intensity a little, except for the dispatching of Sakuma, the guy who dispatched Peco in the tournament. The show seems to enjoy presenting players who are really good only to show how frail they are against people who are better than they are. Except for Kazama, who goes on to … Continue reading Ping Pong and Nanana 5, Nisekoi 18, Mahouka 6
