Mawaru Penguindrum – 19

「私の運命の人」 (Watashi no Unmei no Hito)
“My Soulmate”

Well, it’s starting to look like all the stuff about Kanba being the ladies’ man was a bit of a red herring, because it turns out the actual person snagging all the girls is Shouma. Ringo may have been an inadvertent catch, but that doesn’t appear to be the case with Himari.

Going into this adaptation, there was one social link in particular that I was most concerned about how it would be adapted, and that was Tatsumi Kanji’s.

「りんごのとなり」 (Ringo to Tonari)

Shakugan no Shana III (Final) – 06

「掌にあるもの」 (Tenohira ni Arumono)
“In The Palm of their Hands”

I was expecting this episode to be subpar since it looked like there’d be no correlation with the over-arching story. Luckily, I was completely wrong as I watched one of the most enjoyable episodes since the start of the season.

Guilty Crown – 06

「檻 leukocytes」 (Ori)
“Cage”

I haven’t been as harsh on Guilty Crown as some viewers who may or may not be trying to find faults with it simply because it’s popular, but that doesn’t mean I’m not looking at it objectively either. If there’s something that I find irksome, you can be rest assured that I’ll bring it up, much like in this sixth episode where I felt there was a serious discontinuity in the characters’ behavior from the previous week.
