Shoujo-tachi 11-finale, Dagashi 10-11, Phantom 12

Shoujo-tachi wo kouya o Mezasu 11 begins by having Kuroda's brother thanking the gang for making the game to help him pay off his debts, to which everyone, including Bunta, goes "Hahh?!" and walks out. Everyone mopes for a quarter of the episode, then, predictably, dully, they all come back because finishing the game has … Continue reading Shoujo-tachi 11-finale, Dagashi 10-11, Phantom 12

Dagashi 9, Shoujo-tachi 10, Phantom World 11, Teekyuu 80

Dagashi Kashi 9 is one of the better ones. The first one, concerning wata-pachi, brings up the idea that foods that bring you pain can be enjoyable (Hotaru has a mouth ulcer). Actually, they bring up a different issue, that foods that you should not eat are tastier for that reason, but watching the pleasurable … Continue reading Dagashi 9, Shoujo-tachi 10, Phantom World 11, Teekyuu 80

KonoSuba 8, Koyomimonogatari 8-9, Dagashi 8, Shoujo-tachi 9

KonoSuba 8 ... I don't know what the hell happened. What were all those dolls? Why was Aqua behind the door? And you know, it didn't matter much. Our heroes are sent to exorcise a bunch of spirits by Wiz, a nice but hapless servant of the demon king. There's lots of running around in … Continue reading KonoSuba 8, Koyomimonogatari 8-9, Dagashi 8, Shoujo-tachi 9

Boku Dake, Phantom World, Shoujo-Tachi 8, Komugi-chan 7

Boku Dake ga Inai Machi 8 starts with a bit of terror, and a conundrum. The killer enters the bus. Kayo is too terrified to escape, but all the killer does is kick a box, dumps a backpack full of incriminating things ... and leaves without opening the curtain. The only thing I can think … Continue reading Boku Dake, Phantom World, Shoujo-Tachi 8, Komugi-chan 7

Mad catch-up: KonoSuba, Phantom World, Haruchika, Shoujo-Tachi

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 5 has a first part that doesn't make a lot of sense. Aqua wants a dangerous quest, so they stick her in a cage and put her in a lake to purify it, never mind about the alligators. When the alligators show up the others just stand around and … Continue reading Mad catch-up: KonoSuba, Phantom World, Haruchika, Shoujo-Tachi

Fours and fives: Haruchika, Shoujo-tachi, Dagashi

Haruchika can annoy me a lot, and one reason is know-it-all Haruta.  Happily, episode four introduced us to one of his terrifying older sisters, Minami who knocks him down a few pegs.  Unfortunately, we still have to witness his boy genius act, this time involving a so-called haunted apartment... which leads me to my next … Continue reading Fours and fives: Haruchika, Shoujo-tachi, Dagashi

New Shows Winter 2016 #2

Though there were no stinkers, nothing in my first post thrilled me too much. Let's see if Active Raid -Kidou Kyoushuushitsu Dai Hakkei- can liven things up. We got Asami, a young intern who's been sent to Tokyo's misfit police squad, the Special Public Security 5th Division 3rd Mobile Assault Unit 8, who have a … Continue reading New Shows Winter 2016 #2
