Kimi ni Todoke 2nd Season – 07

「あきらめちまえよ」 (Akirame Chimae Yo)
“Just Give Up”

Kent gets no pity. None at all.

Bleach – 310

Impressions:
This episode wraps up the whole arrancar arc, and indeed it actually ends the main storyline of the war against Aizen which has been the main focus since the beginning of the series (remember that Aizen planned it all from the time Ichigo gained his powers). Content-wise I don’t have much to say that I haven’t said before in the manga posts.

Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai – 12 (TRUE ROUTE)

Is this the start of a dazzling high school life for Kyousuke? Kuroneko… chan?

「俺の妹の人生相談がこれで終わるわけがない」
(Ore no Imouto no Jinsei Soudan ga Kore de Owaru Wake ga Nai)
“There’s No Way My Sister’s Life Counseling Ends Here”

The first of four Oreimo episodes that leads to the “true ending” of the series has been streamed, and it follows the same general flow as the episode twelve “good ending” we saw last season. What was interesting is how the first half was identical, before things starting veering off ever so slightly with Kyousuke missing the last train out of Akihabara and once again going above and beyond what’s expected of a typical older brother.

Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? – 07

「おい、お前どこ中だよ?」 (Oi, Omae Doko Chuu Da yo?)
“Hey, What Middle School Do You Go To?”

After I remembered how the producers promised that this show would be full of laughs, battles, shocking revelations, and plot twists, I’m glad to say that they’ve managed to pull through and provide everything they promised and then some. For me, the return to a slice of life styled episode signaled the beginning of the humor I’ve missed for the past two weeks.

Bakuman. – 20

「協力と条件」 (Kyouryoku to Jyouken)
“Cooperation and Conditions”

Watching our dynamic duo start working together was fun, but the biggest draw this week had to be all the character character development combined with well timed fast forwards. To think, that just last week our duo were close to never being a duo again.

Super Robot Wars OG: The Inspector – 20

「若き猛禽」 (Wakaki Moukin)
“Young Bird of Prey”

Once I heard Dr. Radom mention “Pattern TBS” to Arado and how he “probably” won’t get a chance to use it, I was eagerly waiting for Seolla to come around and execute Wild Wurger and Wild Falken’s Twin Bird Strike combination attack. I’ve brought up my anticipation towards seeing it on at least a couple of episodes, so naturally I was a little psyched about the moment finally arriving.

GOSICK – 07

「夏至祭に神託はくだされる」 (Geshi-sai ni Shintaku wa Kudasareru)
“A Divine Revelation is Given at the Summer Solstice Festival”

In a village full of blondies with ponytails coupled with having the production of BONES, it felt weird to keep thinking I was seeing the distant cousins of the Elric family.

Hourou Musuko – 05

「夏のおわりに ~Long, long shadow~」 (Natsu no Owari ni ~Long, long shadow~)
“End of Summer ~Long, long shadow~”

As I mentioned last time, I feel really bad for Chiba, but she really too selfish for her own good especially demanding that Ariga vote her to be Romeo so that she could be with Nitori. Driving her friends away (if she even considers them that) and isolating oneself is only going to pull her situation downhill.

STAR DRIVER: Kagayaki no Takuto – 20

「描かれたあの日の虹」 (Egakareta Ano Hi no Niji)
“The Rainbow Drawn That Day”

The plot finally opens up in a major way with backstory on both Reiji and Katashiro Ryousuke (Miki Shinichirou), and comes with a love triangle that’s oddly familiar to Takuto, Sugata, and Wako’s situation yet noticeably different at the same time.

Mitsudomoe Zouryouchuu! – 07

「みそじもえ?」 (Misoji Moe?)
“Sexy Thirty?”

I doubt the handful of questions I have, like just how the timeline of this series works, will ever be answered by the time the series finishes next week. But I’m sure glad that the second to last episode has been one of the better ones. Finally giving Chiba some redemption in my eyes, I would have never expected his ass would be the most fearsome thing I’ve seen this season.

Tegami Bachi REVERSE – 20

Niche, the always earnest and dependable dingo, has been getting through to everyone lately.

「希望の微笑み」 (Kibou no Hohoemi)
“Smile of Hope”

As the preview hinted at last time, we had an episode about Connor and the aftermath in Lament. It wasn’t nearly as sad as I thought it would be since Sunny is still alive, and instead irked the pessimistic side of me a bit with the false hope that Lag spouts out.
