Kami-sama no Memo-chou – 12 (END)

「君と僕と彼女のこと」 (Kimi to Boku to Kanojo no Koto)
“You, Me, and For Her Sake”

I don’t know what the point of luring out your enemies is if you don’t fully intend to have fun with it. When Hakamizaka was threatening to “fly away” if Narumi wasn’t fast enough to catch him, I didn’t expect him to be flying away on drugs.

「あの夏の二十一球」 (Ano Natsu no Nijyuichi Kyuu)
“That Summer of 21 Pitches”

While some people may have been quick to judge Kami-Sama, I believe that it’s still a really interesting show that has its own merits. Shifting gears back to everyday life living amongst NEETs and Yakuza, I think this was a nice change of pace.

Kami-sama no Memo Chou – 07

「僕にできるすべて」 (Boku ni Dekiru Subete)
“Everything I Can Do”

While this episode started out a little anti-climatic, with nothing really occurring to push the plot along, it really did well in illustrating what Narumi means to everyone. As the newest member of this group of NEETs and Thugs, color me surprised that he holds such strong emotions for a group of people he barely even knows.

「僕が二人にできること」 (Boku ga Futari ni Dekiru Koto)
