Last week, if you still remember: understanding that Ping Pong the Animation is not a happy anime, what made this episode the best episode of Akuma no Riddle, detailing a game in which everyone would beat Sora and Shiro from No Game No Life and a super easy way of solving every mystery dungeon in Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin.
This week: how the subject of ‘change’ has resulted in no change or progress with Nagi no Asukara, why the disappointing fights mean a disappointing anime overall with Nobunagun, the pleasant but subtle details of food in Wizard Barristers – Benmashi Cecil, and why zombie Dandy is smarter than regular Dandy in Space Dandy.
Last week: the reasons why Inari will have phenomenal character development in Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha, the diversity of applications and meaning of a catgirl’s tail in Noragami, how Vice President’s Dog is replacing Pork Bowl’s role in Silver Spoon S2, and appreciating the many comical references in Hoozuki no Reitetsu.
Oh, right, I do these kinda posts, too. This week: Kaiki bringing out the best in others in Monogatari Series Second Season, watching the OVA that connects episodes 8 and 9 in Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta, the setting feeling undervalued in Nagi no Asukara, and the true victims of torture in Samurai Flamenco “B”.
Not even four weeks ago, when episode 7 of Samurai Flamenco aired, it seemed like another ordinary episode with heroes solving petty crimes… or at least attempting to. After a handful of episodes with Hazama as a costumed superhero, followed closely behind by a courageous trio of idols, the Flamenco Girls, the world of Samurai Flamenco found itself bored with its premise. In fact, the characters felt bored too, with the drop in crime, the reduction in activity and even a decline in interest from Gotou and the police. Something needed to shake up this series, right? And then came the big reveal. Yup, it was that one big moment in Samurai Flamenco. We learned that Hazama’s parents were murdered. The case was never solved. It was devastating. It was perturbing. It was going to be the biggest thing in Samurai Flamenco, shifting the direction of the series in a whole new direction. You figured nothing would top that, right? Right?
About 2 weeks ago: why I’m bored with Uchouten Kazoku, the impact of alternative hairstyles in Monogatari Series Second Season, how Zoe’s character contrasts everyone and everything in Shingeki no Kyojin, and why the clothes are my favorite part of Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou.
