AMAIM Part 2 Episode 4
Read the episode review that Irina and I worked on here: Link
Komi Can’t Communicate Part 2 Episode 2
A very mix bag from this episode. The first part with Komi getting scared during a typhoon and then talking to Tadano to keep her calm was good. Even the boys imagining dates with the girls was pretty fun. Same with Komi at the cat cafe. But, Yamai trying to see Komi’s panties was cursed. Same with the “I Love You” game that had a cute result, but Yamai was there to make it all worse. Yes, I absolutely detest the show when it focuses on her more then the minimal amount. But the episode itself was good and calm, so that makes me happy enough.
New Legend of the Galactic Heroes Season 3 Episode 8
Well, talk about some heavy things going on in this episode. Especially with Yang captured for a Court of Inquiry which is illegal in the Free Planets Alliance. Why? People think he might be betraying them in the future too. It’s just really fun to see Yang, even stuck in a facility, just take down the fake idealism presented by the self important officials of the Free Planets Alliance. Also, go Frederica Green Hill. Now the empire is attacking Iserlohn too. Uh oh. Haha.
Tiger and Bunny Season 2 Episode 5
I really like these episodes focused on the older stars rather then the new guys who are just a little too full of themselves. I suppose that I am still learning about these people who are up and coming and feel like they have something to prove, but they are annoying. This episode focused on the relationship troubles between Orgami Cyclone and Rock Bison was somewhat cliched, but it fit there characters. If anything, we got to learn more about them as their friendship is broken and rebuilt again. Also, Barnaby found an old friend from his youth. Excellent all around episode.
Ultraman Season 2 Episode 4
This episode was filled with so much fun and heroism in such good ways too. It’s fun to see this subjugated race by the Black Star gang to our younger actual Ultraman talking to the princess of them who is having such a hard time there too. Some really comfy and well placed elements onto them as well too. Plus, cool looking elements of three Ultramen completely destroying the enemies put against them while the older Ultraman, the father named Hayata, was captured. It’s a really good action episode in a way that I prefer my hero stuff after the very angsty first season that was good, but lacking too.
Aoashi Episode 5
The long goodbye. This is my favorite episode so far. After Atoshi has made it to into Tokyo Espirit and Hana herself helping Atoshi’s family into the Tokyo planning period, it’s time for Atoshi to say goodbye. Not only his small town life in Ehime, but his classmates, and even his parents. Atoshi and his mom had tried to talk to each other about the family separating, but his mom has put it off until Atoshi read his mother’s letter on the train where, when he tried to be cool for his goodbye even with his team and friends saying goodbye, his mother wrote a very heartfelt and honest letter. Man, so heavy. Amazing. So good with all the time too.
Spy X Family Episode 5
This was a lot of fun. A very good beginning of having some drama of whether or not Anya would make it into the school, which was very grounded and well executed even if we knew she would. You know, even if she was on the waiting list. Then it got very off the wall after it with Anya needing some “motivation” to do well at the school which lead to the entire spy contingent doing some crazy spy stuff at a castle nearby for show. Some cool Loid antics with cool animation and then drunken Yor through out it. Not my favorite episode, but it was really cool. Good Anya faces there too as well here too.
Love Live! Nijigasaki Season 2 Episode 6
The Clark Kent/Superman reveal of the show, Setsuna, is finally revealed to everyone in this episode. I think she has done a great job of making her mannerisms and expressions so different from each stage of her personality. That was connected with the Idol Festival becoming too lard which was a problem for Nijigasaki which lead to Setsuna coming to the solution of having a huge festival at multiple schools during the other school’s festivals. Lanzhu helped. I thought it was cute and fun. It was a good time all around.
Requiem of the Rose King Episode 17
After such a long time through all of Richard’s life, he finally made the grasp to become King. Him and Buckingham, the power couple with Catesby as the third person along for the ride. Working together, they locked away Elizabeth Woodville and Edward V then did a power grab of becoming the king and having the ceremony that Edward V was planning to have with no changes there too.
There was a mob that formed from Richard’s mother hate for him by calling him a demon, but that was defeated from a good act from Buckingham and Richard. Then all of that happiness of the moment was ruined when Richard decided to sleep with his actual wife instead of Buckingham after king causing all sorts of self started trauma there too. Such captivating stuff.
