This week: further analysis on Mako’s character, helping proving her true value in KILL la KILL, an exceptional, cunning and innovative moment in BlazBlue: Alter Memory, questioning why all scientists are crazy in anime based from Kakumeiki Valvrave (S2), and complaints of Shounen Fight Syndrome in Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta.
A long, long time ago, back when you actually probably cared about these episodes: why Yeti is the best character in Namiuchigiwa no Muromi-san (and why the series should be about her instead), changing the perspectives of how we view the characters in Shingeki no Kyojin, how the evolution of Hataraku Maou-sama! holds up thus far, and why the sheer awkwardness of Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge is actually a good thing.
People are calling Stein;Gate one of the better mystery animes in recent memory. And for good reason. Steins;Gate has been gradually building a captivating mystery along with a healthy dose of science fiction and, of course, time-travel. But for me, I see Steins;Gate as something even more. Right now, it is the greatest comedy of the season and it isn’t even close.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see Hououin Kyouma (or going by his real name, Okabe Rintarou) be my favorite character this season, even after just one episode. He possesses the personality that’s infectious in an anime, a character you can’t take your eyes off of when he’s on the screen. His uncanny actions around friend and stranger, his rather sharp intelligence, and his compassion provide a multi-dimensional lead for Steins;Gate, perfect for a time-traveling themed science fiction anime.
