Mushishi Zoku Shou: Tokubetsu-hen – Toge no Michi

「とげ の道 」 (Toge no Michi)
“Road of Thorns”

I knew “Road of Thorns” was going to pack quite the emotional punch, but the anime adaptation certainly didn’t disappoint.

Tokyo ESP – 07

「雨の中の少女達」 (Ame no Naka no Shoujo-tachi)
“Girls in the Rain”

A more focused episode makes for a better episode as Ayumu comes into the fold…and the whole anti-esper sentiment finally hits emotionally.

I look forward to seeing some proper closure to this romance, something sorely lacking in the romantic comedy genre.

Persona 4 The Golden ANIMATION – 07

「It’s cliché, but so what?」

Woah, fights! Action! Introspection! It’s like we’re watching a Persona anime or something.

Tokyo Ghoul – 08

「円環」 (Enkan)

That was an interesting mix of the expected and the unexpected.

Zankyou no Terror – 07

「DEUCE」

If we ever look back and try to look for a point where the views on this show diverged, I’d say this would be it.

Glasslip – 08

「雪」 (Yuki)
“Snow”

After last week’s train wreck, I thought this week’s episode did a little better. While I’m still a little confused about what direction the show is trying to go in, P.A. Works did a great job at illustrating a world that’s literally falling apart at the seams.

Shirogane no Ishi Argevollen – 08

「再戦」 (Saisen)
“Rematch”

It looks like I jumped the gun a bit in my predictions last week, because while some of them turned out to be true, one of them I clearly read too much into.

Hanamonogatari

「するがデビル 其ノ壹 – 伍」 (Suruga Debiru Sono Ichi – Go)
“Suruga Devil Parts One – Five”

Kanbaru Suruga, starring in her very own sports anime, learns about playing solo in more ways than one.

*Nothing really explicit here, but this post features copious amounts of Kanbaru. Your designated workplace may not necessarily approve of her wardrobe. Or lack thereof.*

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya Zwei! – 07

「激突!クッキン・シスターズ」 (Gekitotsu Kukkin Shisutaazu)

I could watch an entire series of just Illya, her friends, her family, and the hinjiks they get into.

Hunter X Hunter 2011 – 143

「ツミ×ト×ツメ」 (Tsumi × to × Tsume)
“Sin × And × Claw”

I just wish this series would go on forever. Is that really so much to ask?

Hanayamata – 07

「ガール・アイデンティティー」 (Gaaru Aidentiti)

Haikyuu!! – 20

「及川徹は天才ではない」 (Oikawa Tooru wa Tensai Dewanai)
“Oikawa Tooru is Not a Genius”

Week after week, Haikyuu never ceases to amaze me with how multifaceted each episode is. Right when I think it’s going to center around one of Karasuno’s struggles, the story quickly changes gears and touches upon another struggle, and another struggle after that, before finally leaving off on a cliffhanger for next week.
