Ookami Kakushi, episode 12 – Nemu-chan love (Finale)

So, I watched this episode simultaneously with Shinmaru, as we were hoping to do a MST3K style post on it, but we ended up being stunned into silence by the bizarreness of the episode. So sadly, the final product was no good. So in its place, I’ll give you three reasons why you should bother watching this episode, even though it has nothing to do with the main story and is just plain weird.

1. Gothic Lolita Nemu-chan

Nodame Cantabile: Finale, episode 11 – Fin

And so it ends. Saying goodbye to Nodame feels like saying goodbye to an old friend. It’s a little hard to let go. Especially since there’s plenty more good times that could be had. But still, though it wasn’t the grand finale that I might’ve wished for, I thought it was a fitting end to the show.

And then there were three. Say hello to…

Some of you may be familiar with this new author, as she’s been a contributor to the aniblogosphere for quite a while now, but for those of you that aren’t, I’d like to introduce you to Janette! Janette also runs her own blog called Black and Blue Socks, which she’ll continue to run and I implore you to check out. But she’ll also be moonlighting as a Rabbit Poet for at least through the spring season, covering Heroman and continuing the K-ON tradition. So if you know her, stop by to say hello. And if you don’t know her, well… even more reason to stop by and introduce yourself! You can also follow Janette on twitter as blackbluesock. Welcome! –RP

Baka to Test to Shokanjuu episode 10

I did predict this. I did say in an earlier post that they would end the series on a mini plot arc. And I for one think it’s a good thing. They need to end the series with some sort of achievement, or else the whole thing will just sort of peter out at the end. Unfortunately this also reduces the chance that there will be any romantic resolutions now, since the final conclusion will now be the conclusion of the mini plot.

Look's very hard at work, doesn't he? Oh no! My hairclip is alive!

Baka to Test to Shokanjuu episode 9

Trying to find evidence of a concrete plot in Baka to Test is proving to be like trying to find political satire in a Mr. Men book. In short, there isn’t any.  So the big question is, if Baka to Test had a continuous plot, would it be any better? Say if the plot wasn’t focused on Yoshii’s hilarious hijinks in his multisexual love life and instead was about Class F’s struggle in rising the ranks of the school, amidst hardship and turmoil and stuff like that. It would be a different show, that’s for certain.

Whoah thats a lot. Glasses Guy returns!
