Fall 2017 Grab Bag Week 11: Sangatsu no Lion, Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou, and Mahou Tsukai no Yome


I may or may not have written this post on a bus.

3-gatsu no Lion S2 Episode 32

This week's episode really messed with perspective well, showing different sides of the major events from last week. It's easy to think poorly of Junkei after his game with Nikaidou, but this episode does a good job of putting his actions into context. It might still be a bit sketchy that he seemed to be acting out of jealousy towards Nikaidou, but it's much more reasonable.

I found the situations from the mixer part of the episode to be pretty relatable. I've definitely been in situations where I've explained myself so much that I stop wanting to bother with it. Sometimes, it's just easier to give the simple answer even if it gives people the wrong impression, especially when they don't really care about the answer.

Hina's perspective on Rei's arrival was pretty interesting too. It was nice to see her finally relaxing a bit after all that's happened.

Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou Episode 11

I really appreciate this series has been working towards a resolution. It's been pretty episodic in nature up to this point, so I wasn't really expecting it. However, last week's episode and this week's episode seem to have some sort of goal in mind. I'm really hoping we learn more in the submarine.

I think I was a bit too harsh on Cut last week. Seeing how it interacts with consoles in this week's episode made me realize that it's probably some kind of sci-fi experiment, so it fit this world more than I was willing to grant last week. Chi also seems to notice the similarity between the statues and Cut.

When did this show become a mecha show?

The way this series brings up questions about the world is pretty interesting. When Chi makes the "forest" comparison, I was curious too. What happened to the life in this world? It seems to be some kind of futuristic world, so it's possible that they were simply replaced with machines.

Mahou Tsukai no Yome Episode 11

We got a bit more information about Elias's past this week, though it may have opened a lot more questions. The master in last week's episode guesses that Elias might be the result of a magic experiment gone bad, so it's intriguing that he states that he has probably eaten humans before. That certainly goes a bit further than simple spell failure.

I like that Elias and Chise are given pretty similar characteristics. We've seen Chise marked as an outsider in her childhood, so it links pretty well with Lndel's description of Elias.

This final scene looked pretty awesome.
