「G 棟」 (G-tou)
Everything that Shiro does runs completely against the dark mood of this show. She seems pretty oblivious to what’s going on (or just chooses to ignore it) and just lives in her own little world like a young kid.Continue Reading "Deadman Wonderland – 03"
「めんまを探そうの会」 (Menma o Sagasou no Kai)
“Menma’s Search Party”
It’s always a funny surprise to see a plot device be acknowledged by the show, considering that Jinta remarks to Menma that using wishes as motivation is starting to feel like an excuse. It doesn’t really matter though, as the reason is not so clear cut this time around. Besides, Poppo’s the real plot driver here.Continue Reading "Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai. – 03"
「きろぐらむ – Attention to Your Weight」 (Kiroguramu)
“Kilogram – Attention to Your Weight”
Tohru is officially the master at trolling. I suppose her methods would be a little more discrete if you were to compare her to a master troller like Mai, but hey, it still works pretty well.
Added the insert song in hopes for more exposure!Continue Reading "A-Channel – 04"
「地を這う少女の不思議な刹那」 (Chi o Hau Shōjo no Fushigi na Setsuna)
“A Strange Moment for the Girl Bound to the Ground”
So basically, this felt like a three episode prologue to the first “in reality” meeting between Makoto and Erio. Due to her being such an incoherent wall until now, coming to her senses actually did feel like, “oh wow, so she can be normal.” Would this be a moe gap?Continue Reading "Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko – 03"
「一護捕縛網！尸魂界を脱出せよ！ 」 (Ichigo hobakumou! Souru Sosaetii o dasshutsu seyo! )
“Ichigo’s Capture Net! Escape from Soul Society!”
Surprisingly, the developments in this episode got my interest, and the fights were pretty exciting, which is very rare for fillers.Continue Reading "Bleach – 319"
「俺の後輩がこんなに可愛いわけがない」 (Ore no Kouhai ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai)
“There’s No Way My Junior Can Be This Cute”
With Kirino still out of the picture, it looks like Kuroneko will get to keep the spotlight for just a bit longer. I admit that I’ve missed seeing and hearing Kirino — especially since she’s apparently turned a new leaf. That and I expected her to make some sort of appearance somewhere!
I also enjoy utilizing the filmstrip style.
「空理彷徨のランデヴー」 (Kūri Hōkō no Randevū)
“Rendezvous of Abstract Fluctuation”
The misguided hunt continues, switching focus to finding the IBN 5100 on a smaller scale, but fighting against SERN on a larger scale. For what purpose? To save the world. Even though he’s a mad scientist.Continue Reading "Steins;Gate – 04"
「地区長、来たる。」 (Chikuchou, Kitaru)
“The District Chief Arrives”
I can honestly say that I haven’t been this excited after an episode of Kami Nomi in a while. After the first two episodes this season, I was a little nervous that I would lose interest in this show — but I’m overjoyed that whatever they did this week really worked for me.Continue Reading "Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai II – 03"
「蒼鷺ラプソディー」 (Aosagi Rapusodī)
“Grey Heron Rhapsody”
This past week I had an interesting conversation with a friend of mine. We were sort of arguing about our favorite shows of the season. His was Anohana and mine was Hanasaku Iroha. Can you imagine how heated that conversation got?Continue Reading "Hanasaku Iroha – 04"
「虚無界の門」 (Gehena Gēto)
Trauma seems to be the way to go for all great series.Continue Reading "Ao no Exorcist – 02"
「日常４」 (Nichijou 4)
“My Ordinary Life 4″
「意地悪フリルは屁こきいもりを糾弾する」 (Ijiwaru Furiru wa Hekokiimori o Kyūdan Suru)
“A Malicious Frill Denounces a Farting Newt”
Avril’s increased presence in the show definitely makes things interesting, thanks to her persistence to be a worthwhile rival.Continue Reading "GOSICK – 14"
「Coincidence （暗合）」 (Angou)
This is getting pretty interesting to say the least, as Masakaki whisks Kimimaro away to the center of the Financial District, a giant stock exchange in which entres (entrepreneurs) and their assets fight in “deals” for each other’s money.Continue Reading "C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control – 02"
「解毒剤（キャンディ）」 (Gedokuzai (Kyandi))
There’s a psychotic opening sequence included this week, showing a lot of red and featuring some of the other deadmen, plus a little fan-service for both guys and girls. It fits pretty well with the dark themes in the series and the demented amusement park (even if there’s no reason for a costume to smile like that).Continue Reading "Deadman Wonderland – 02"
