Stella no Mahou – 08

「デバッグなめたらダメだよ?」 (Debaggu Nametara Damedayo?)

Ajin – 20

「クロちゃん, もう一度だけ」 (Kuro-chan, Mou Ichido dake)
“Kuro-chan, just once more please”

「栗林公園」 (Ritsurin Kouen)
“Ritsurin Park”

To many this was likely just another episode, albeit a heartwarming and emotionally satisfying one. But I think so much more of it. To me, it was one of the best anime episodes I’ve ever watched. This is going to get personal, but allow me to explain.
