Last Exile -Ginyoku no Fam- – 07

「Weak square」

I enjoy episodes like this one, where Fam’s plucky cheerfulness is mercifully muted, and the characters are reminded of the life-and-death nature of the game they’ve chosen to play.

“Daily Wage Hero / Senpai and I.”

Unlike most shows in this genre where things can grow stale after watching the same characters, do the same things, with the same people, the same way, Kimi to Boku manages to shift things up every few weeks, keeping things pretty original.

Shakugan no Shana III (Final) – 07

「神門」 (Shinmon)
“God’s Gate”

After getting a glimpse at what Keisaku had to deal with during his first outing to Outlaw, I was cautiously optimistic that Kazumi would also get the same treatment this week.
