Astra ep 12. A long, implausible, thoroughly uninteresting lore dump, and then coming up with a moral based on your implausible lore is a bad way to end your show. It was nice to see all the adults get their comeuppance, at least.

Promare was good.

A simple but sympathetic story with fun characters, told with the kind of confidence and creative flair you expect out of Trigger. The aesthetic felt a bit messy at times, but never got too bad. The action was good but it was also good in calmer moments, like the skating bit and that one scene. (Honestly, I thought the action peaked in the first half. BUT the second half did have that one scene that made up for it.) Music was quite good, and it was great to hear Shintani Mayumi again. All in all, a great experience and I’m glad I saw in the theatre.

And yes, Lio is very hot.

Machikdao Mazoku ep 11. Momo’s got a fucking cannon.

The show tries some metaphorical storytelling. Didn’t feel super high-minded, but it worked well enough. I liked Shamiko getting Momo to open up by offering her food, as opposed to trying to force or trick her.

The lore dump just ended up creating more questions than relevant answers.


Granbelm ep 12. I assume the show intended for the audience to sympathize with Suishou on some level, but her hypocrisy in criticizing Mangetsu for being a doll created for the benefit of another power (when that’s all she is), and everyone else for having selfish motivations (when she has no powerful motives that aren’t purely selfish) makes that pretty damn impossible.

Speaking of Mangestu, they seem to have really fucked up her story. This ep seemed to validate her deathwish, which is pretty awful. The twist that she’s a doll created entirely to test Shingetsu and her dying to help Shingetsu get her wish feels like a much weaker moral than if Mangetsu learned to value herself, which seemed like what the show was building up to before the twist. And I don’t think that bringing her back, or making her live within Shingetsu or whatever, would be that rewarding and resolution either.

One more ep to try to right this ship, but this seems fubar.

It isn’t over yet!
I just finished the first arc in Shippuden. This time I’m actually going to take a break from it and finish up Bleach.

O Maidens in Your Savage Season ep 12. Anime of the Year.

An absolutely perfect finale to the best anime of my year (so far). It gives no simplistic resolutions and it happily revels in its hellish mess, tying everything up with a big middle finger to authority and the ideal of "purity."

Like A Place Further than the Universe, it’s about of group of friends trying to maintain their friendships through adversity, except instead of Antarctica, the obstacles are love, sexuality, and social norms. It acknowledges and respects that kids aren’t going to have everything figured out coming right out of high school, and it does it with all the grace of five sexually confused teenagers and several buckets of paint.



Let’s see the Fall season top that.


Symphogear XV ep 12. Good stuff from Carol. Good speech from Chris, showed how much she’s grown from S1. Good send off for Noble Red. Hibiki’s quick henshin here really showed how much the improved character art helps animation, as it let them get loose and smeary in very creative ways that they probably couldn’t have gotten away with in earlier seasons. It also let Yuuki Aoi show off her stuff.

Stick the landing, Symphogear.


Given ep 11. The visual representation of Uenoyama’s conflicting emotions was fun. I do understand the concern that their relationship would interfere with their band. I liked how embarrassed everyone was at the photo shoot. I liked Haruki admitting to himself that Nakayama’s song and story made him want more out of his relationships.

This really feels like just the start of their story rather than the end, so I guess I’m going to have to watch the movie.


Cannon Busters ep 12. Solid action finale. Giant robots are too impersonal for my taste, but it still had some impressive shots, and Philly learned that vengeance won’t bring him any peace before he made a mistake he couldn’t come back from.

The show also definitely would have benefited from more time. Dex’s crew have great designs, and I would’ve loved to actually know their stories.


Dr. Stone ep 12. This ep turns up the tension and the stakes. Ginro literally getting shit on was pretty mean, but his story was alright. Liked Chrome demanding that Senku treat him like an equal.

Re:Stage ep 11. Sayu and Mana talk about how they had began to give up on their dreams before meeting each other. The show is retreading a bit, but it’s still nice. I’d rather have genuine, well-earned connections like this than subtext and CGDCT.

Liked the acapella this ep. I like these sorts of flawed but earnest performances in idol/music anime. It’s one of the reasons Symphogear is so special; the VAs actually grunt and exert effort as though they’re in a fight, the songs aren’t simply background music. Of course it doesn’t sound as good as properly edited songs, but it makes the music feel more integral to the story.
