「きみのいる空へ」 (Kimi no Iru Sora e)
“The Sky Wherre You Are”

The pilot’s love song ends up being a bittersweet melody.

Magi: The Kingdom of Magic – Redemption


Happy endings are worth fighting for.

After its first season, some said the Magi anime didn’t deserve the second season it was getting. If so, they made good of the chance they were given. From story to animation, character development to action, from heart-wrenching tragedy, complex villains, lots of Extreme Magic, and a climax that built on everything that came before it, the anime found redemption.

This is a finale snapshot, so spoilers ahoy! Feel free to read if you don’t mind being spoiler though, because I just might convince you that you need to watch the second season.

Space Dandy – 13 (END)

「掃除機だって恋するじゃんよ」 (Soujiki Datte Koisuru jan yo)

Space Dandy finishes its first season pretty much where I expected it to back when it all started.

Tonari no Seki-kun – 13 (END)

「プール」 (Puuru)
“Pool”

Unless I get a nice surprise next week and discover another episode of Tonari no Seki-kun (or I’m enlightened by a legitimate source), this week marks the end of one of a great 10-minute anime that you may or may not have picked up.

Boy wouldn’t it be awkward if this wasn’t the finale?

Not covering

Now that you know what’s airing this spring, it’s time to tell you what we’ll be blogging! This is Random Curiosity’s Spring 2014 blogging schedule.

As always, this is a tentative overview of our plans for the new season. We’ll also be doing introductory posts on many of the shows we’re not covering, so if something catches our eyes, things will be shifted around to accommodate. The schedule will be updated to reflect any changes.

I repeat, DO NOT PANIC! Though we are announcing fewer shows than usual, that doesn’t mean this is all we’ll blog. In addition to the series we’ve announced so for, you can expect introductory posts for Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, Captain Earth, Hitsugi no Chaika, Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin, Sidonia no Kishi, and M3: Sono Kuroki Hagane (among others), with an eye towards picking them up.

「サムライフラメンコ・ネイキッド!!」 (Samurai Furemenko, Neikiddo!!)

I did it! I managed to blog Samurai Flamenco until the end and d*mn, I was not expecting that kind of confession.

「黄昏の・・・ 上級契約 (ハイヤーエンゲージ)」 (Koukun no… Joukyuu Keiyaku (Haiyaa Engeeji))
“Twilight of … Advanced Contract (Higher Engage)”

After another season of one of the cutest love stories I’ve ever seen, it comes to a rather predictable end. But who says that predictable can’t also mean awesome?

Because not much happened in the episode, it’ll just be a huge final impression post! More after the break!
