Sword Art Online II – 12

「幻の銃弾」 (Maboroshi No Juudan)
“Phantom Bullet”

After weeks of enduring episodes full of dialogue and flashbacks to build up to this moment, I’ll be frank and say that I was a little disappointed that we still haven’t hit the climax. However, it looks like what we all want is right over the horizon!

「東京にいます / よせおっ」 (Tokyo Ni Imasu / Yoseo)

I’m not sure if this week’s episode was supposed to emotional but I’ll tell you all about that after I find some tissues.

Shirogane no Ishi Argevollen – 12

「ナンジョウ・レイカ」 (Nanjou Reika)
“Nanjou Reika”

While it was easy to tell what emotional response the writers were going for in this flashback episode, I unfortunately can’t say that it worked that well on me.

Hunter X Hunter 2011 – 147

「スクイ×ト×ミライ」 (Sukui x to x Mirai)
“Salvation × And × Future”

I suppose the only surprise by now would be if Hunter X Hunter didn’t surprise me. So I guess this episode was unsurprising…

Haikyuu!! – 24

「脱・“孤独の王様”」 (Datsu, “Kodoku no Oosama”)
“The Former, ‘King of Solitude’”

As far as this adaptation of Haikyuu is concerned, this episode is the finale. The past five episodes depicting Karasuno’s match against Aoba Jousai have culminated to this third set, win-by-two moment, and it ends in a way that’s not as surprising as one would think. Or at least, not as surprising to me as it may have been to some other viewers.
