Fall 2017 Grab Bag Week 12: Sangatsu no Lion, Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou, and Mahou Tsukai no Yome


Hey, this is probably the last one of these for fall. I made it!

3-gatsu no Lion S2 Episode 33

I really appreciate this episode for giving Rei a chance to just be happy. As far as I'm concerned, he certainly deserves it. I definitely enjoyed the way it was portrayed too, with the subtle reaction to Chairman's "I'm counting on you" building into the tears Rei can't hold back in the Shogi Science Club.

Gakuto's focus was a little weird in this episode, but I liked how he was portrayed in contrast to Shimada. The episode starts with him getting criticized for his lack of market appeal, which is heavily demonstrated in the game. We see a lot of flashy moves from Gakuto as Shimada calmly responds to them.

Having the principal and vice principal join the Shogi Club was pretty funny too. It looks like next week goes back to Hina, which probably means the fun is over.

Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou Episode 12

Okay, that was a lot more information than I was expecting from this final episode. It certainly didn't answer all of my questions, but I can live with this ending. Some of the videos we saw confirmed what we already knew (that mankind basically self-destructed), but I'm guessing I'll need to watch that part again to get the rest. That was a lot to follow...

I'm still not sure how I feel about the weird creatures. I was perfectly fine with accepting that they were some kind of experiment gone wrong or manmade "living" device. However, this episode seemed to suggest that they were some kind of system put in place to reset the life on Earth. Maybe I was reading too much into it, but I find that harder to believe.

Still, this series has been a pretty fun experience. Watching these two girls find fun in a seemingly bleak landscape has been one of my highlights for the season. Here's hoping for some more to come.

Mahou Tsukai no Yome Episode 12

A lot of talking in this week's episode, but it was still pretty nice. I quite liked Nevin's conversation with Chise because it was somewhat similar to something I've heard a lot. It's always nice to help others, but it's important not to lose yourself in it to the point where you no longer help yourself.

I also really liked Nevin's positive spin on Chise's mother's death, seeing it as an act of charity that she didn't take Chise with her. It's never really said, but I'm guessing Nevin saw it as a sacrifice to allow to Chise to continue on and help others.

I knew where the phoenix scene was going as soon as I saw it, but it was still a nice-looking scene.
