Joker Game – 12 (END)

「XX ダブル・クロス」 (XX Daburu Kurosu)
“XX (Double Cross)”

Perhaps it’s only appropriate that Joker Game ends not climatically, but introspectively.

Concrete Revolutio: Choujin Gensou THE LAST SONG – 24 (END)

「君はまだ歌えるか」 (Kimi wa Mada Utaeru ka)
“Can You Still Sing?”

The incredible ambition of Concrete Revolutio must be seen to be appreciated—and I’m not sure if I’m doing it justice myself.

Gundam Thunderbolt – 03, 04 (END)

「#3, #4」

It’s been a short run, but Thunderbolt has cemented itself as one of the most spectacular and devastating entries in the Gundam franchise. No matter how beautiful the action may have appeared, it always demonstrated the brutality of war and the damage it does to those swept up in its madness.

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu – 13 (END)


I was prepared to get all teary eyed at the prospect of saying goodbye to this wonderful series, but thankfully there is no need. This episode was more a new beginning than a conclusive ending, and it all works out because a second season has been confirmed!

Dagashi Kashi – 12 (END)

「食べるんですHiとさくらんぼの詩と…/森永ミルクキャラメルとサクマ式ドロップスと…」 (Taberun Desu Hi to Sakuranbo no Uta to…/ Morinaga Mirukukyarameru to Sakumashikidoroppusu to…)
“Taberun Desu Hi and Sakuranbo no Uta and… / Morinaga Milk Caramel and Sakumashiki Drops and…”

The last episode has a little of everything I enjoyed about this series, plus yuri.

Musaigen no Phantom World – 13 (END)

「永遠のファントム・ワールド」 (Eien no Fantomu Wārudo)
“The Eternal Phantom World”

Even now, at the finale, are we sure, absolutely sure, that Musaigen no Phantom World is not just making it up as it goes?

Akagami no Shirayukihime – All the Feels, None of the BS

What’s this – an actual relationship in anime?

Sometimes (not very often) they get the end exactly right.

Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle – One Step Above

Good luck deciding, you bastard.

I wasn’t planning on watching this series. I had planned to introduce it and be done, as much because I was sure we’d once again get half of the story and never see the rest. Yet I kept watching it, because there’s something comforting in the familiar story, and for whatever its failings, Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle is one step above. One step above average, granted, but that’s something.

Bubuki Buranki – More Than Meets The Eye

Relaxing after Third Impact.

Bubuki Buranki is by no means perfect, but if you enjoy stylish, highly-kinetic action, it can be worth your time for the unexpected wrinkles that make it more interesting than the synopsis suggests. Chiefly among the antagonists.

Osomatsu-san – HELLO BURAZAHS


For a show that went completely under the radar (at first) for me, I’ll probably never get over just how much I loved this show.

Gundam: Tekketsu no Orphans – 25 (END)

「鉄華団」 (Tekkadan)

Whatever that second season turns out to be, I certainly hope it focuses heavily on McGillis because a season of him screwing over people sounds like Tekketsu no Orphans‘ most compelling option by far.
