Summer 2015 Season Previews

Scroll down for summary. Okusama ga Seito Kaichou – probably passing on this one just based on the premise Gangsta – I was never really into the “mafia” concept, so I’m probably going to pass on this one too. Chaos Dragon – It doesn’t look like much, but I’m willing to give it a shot. […]

Hibike Euphonium Final Episode (13): Finally the concert

Well, this series ends by finally showing off what everyone’s been practicing up to now. I was actually somewhat surprised that the concert ended with our main characters taking the gold, but I guess the idea was to wrap everything up neatly. Band geek moment: I just want to say here that I’m not actually a huge […]

World Trigger Episode 36: Flashbacks

As advertised last week, this week’s episode shows Osamu’s history joining Border. To be honest, it’s not all that interesting…while it shows the details of Chika’s brother’s disappearance, it doesn’t really show anything that we couldn’t infer from the comments already made about it in the series. There are no real extra clues about where […]

Plastic Memories Final Episode (13): Ferris wheel was a trap

Well, I’m certainly glad they didn’t try to go back on their ending and save Isla from her fate somehow. The final episode ends up being not too bad because Tsukasa’s new partner is purposely hidden from view, meaning I can choose to believe it’s not actually Isla’s body being used again. Because let’s be […]

Fate/stay Night Unlimited Blade Works S2 Final Episode (25): Waver seems different somehow

Hmm…well I can’t exactly call this episode an “ending” since it’s just a wrap-up, but it makes for a decent epilogue (as advertised). I think it’s safe to say that this epilogue was mostly fan service like the prologue (I was definitely surprised that there was a fight scene though). We mostly get to see adult […]

Danmachi Final Episode (13): Another level up?

Well, I guess I don’t need to ask why Hermes was saying the same things as Bell’s grandfather…apparently, he’s Zeus. I don’t suppose he’s related to Heracles or something. It would certainly explain why he’s so overpowered. That being said, Hermes mentioned this week that the monster was angered by divine power and thus attacked the […]

Kekkai Sensen Episode 11: Flashback time

This week’s episode prepares for the final battle by explaining White’s background and finally explain why she calls herself a ghost (among other things). I’m not entirely sure if I understand the ending of the episode, though. Are White and Black both dead now that the Second Collapse has started? That would mean that the King […]

World Trigger Episode 35: Mission complete?

Finally, we have the conclusion of this invasion arc. Sadly, while Osamu seems to have survived, Replica is lost in his place. I honestly would have preferred they take Osamu…I kinda liked Replica’s remarks. What I don’t really understand is why they left Hyuse behind…apparently it was planned from the start. Do they have some […]

Hibike Euphonium Episode 12: Finding passion

Most of this week’s episode involves watching Kumiko (and her childhood friend) turning the criticism from Taki into the drive to work on improving. If you’re online a lot, it’s easy to take criticism too personally and become defensive, but it really should be motivating you to get better. But in my opinion, that piece […]

Plastic Memories Episode 12: Almost there

This week’s episode seems to be more filler before the inevitable separation of Tsukasa and Isla…the two pretty much just spent some more time together (with assists from everyone else, of course). I don’t know about everyone else, but it felt really awkward to me watching a full episode where the two are fairly at-peace with […]
