Fall 2017 Grab Bag Week 7: Sangatsu no Lion, Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou, and Mahou Tsukai no Yome


Keeping that train going...

3-gatsu no Lion S2 Episode 28

I mean...eventually, I have to stop praising this series, right? Honestly, this is the part of the story where I can start relating to Hina better. The whole idea of where to place your anger and how to react to the bully is something I know well. But I'll save the rest of that story for what will likely be happening soon.

Having a popular kid like Takahashi behind you seems like a cheat if I'm being honest. But what can you do? I really like Takahashi's small contributions to this series, especially his story about Chiho.

Rei's situation in all of this is still the most interesting part for me. There's a general stigma around people who care deeply about making money. I think Rei's situation in this series shows that it's a bit shallow to write people off based on that trait alone. Rei is basically obsessing about money at this point, but it's not like he's doing it for vain reasons. He wants to provide for the ones he cares about.

Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou Episode 7

This show continues to be a great way to unwind at the end of the week. I was definitely with Chi this week...walking on high, unguarded pipes sounds difficult.

The conversation about the arrows was pretty interesting too. I've always been of the opinion that life would be nice if there was some guidance, but only it only has meaning if we make the decisions ourselves. That doesn't stop me from wishing there was a convenient arrow pointing me in the right direction, though.

These looks like some nice cookies.

Mahou Tsukai no Yome Episode 7

I quite liked where this episode was headed. It was a lot more focused on showing Chise's progress as an apprentice, and it featured a lot of scenes that forced her to act independently. It's great that she's not just constantly in Elias's shadow (though it's probably more accurate to say he's in hers). That poor mandrake, though...

Also, we get to see Elias's monster side more prominently when Chise gets injured. Now we can finally understand why every other character is so cautious around him.
