During the twelfth week of the season: my reflections on why Ping Pong the Animation had an excellent ending and why Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin had an appropriate ending but one that left me unsatisfied, an analysis on the finale of Akuma no Riddle with a focus on Tokaku’s and Haru’s relationship (*Spoilers*), and thoughts on the utilization of the setting and the background art in Mushishi Zoku Shou.
Before we had Fabulous Max from Penguindrum we had just plain Fabulous from Star Driver. You remember that anime, right, that one from about a year ago with fabulous masked persons piloting fabulous but strange mecha in a fabulous alternate dimension of pure and unrestricted fabulousness? And let’s not forget about the glittering abdomen/peacock-feathered garments or those punches that destroyed mechas when they landed square on the pilot’s face. It was truly a fabulous anime. But there was one character in particular who refused to be fabulous like everyone else. Keito contrasted everyone by always being serious, dull, and rational, distinct from everyone else in the series. But it was all just a ploy and it was made apparent when we saw one scene in particular, one which completely redefined Keito’s character, redirected Star Driver and pretty much left me downright speechless. Fabulous, too.
