With the story of K-On over, we’re into the extra episodes. This episode of K-On was flat out silly, and really, a lot of fun. I ended up laughing a lot. I’m not quite sure when it takes place, but looking at Yui’s haircut, it must be between the yearbook photos and graduation
Heroman is now finished! The ending didn’t make too much sense, but it was pretty dang intense.
I decided to write 23 and 24 into one post, as my 23 download didn’t work, so I had to watch it on Cruchyroll, which doesn’t make for easy screencaping.
So talking about finally learning things, we get the story behind what happened to Joey and Holly’s dad in the coal mine. Interestingly enough, Holly still has a lot of anger at her dad. She challenges Joey to find out what being a hero really means, which as Joey has limited intelligence, sends him into a tizzy.
In the first half, the boys get government assistance and find that there’s something going on in the mine. Although, the only one thing of real importance happens in the first half, that being we finally find out how Psy hurt his leg.
Episode 20’s opening scene is very chilling. We watch a father reassure his daughter that everything will be okay, only for her to have to watch him be kidnapped by an alien. I felt so bad for the little girl.
And so ends the first season of one of the most recklessly fun series I’ve had the pleasure to watch. Criticize the show for being light on substance, but it knew what it was and what it was supposed to deliver and that was sex appeal and violence. As Maximus would say, are you not entertained? Yes. Yes, I was entertained.
It seems season preview posts are happening earlier and earlier these days. By the time the actual season rolls around, it’s like you gotta root through ancient history to remember what was what. Meanwhile, I’ve been doing the previews later and later. It’s at the cost of comments, but it seems to make sense to me. Sort of like how I don’t care about football season until baseball season is over, it’s hard for me to get psyched about the next season when we’re running right into the climax of the current season. So I’m bringing up the rear.
Right after Heroman starts to get interesting we get…a filler arc? Typical beach episode that turns into Joey, Lina, and new guy being hunted on the beach by big bad while we don’t know where everyone else is.
To be blunt, I have a lot of Heroman to catch up on. I still have seven episodes to go, actually. Unless this adds something to the actual plot of the series, I’m not going to blog this, and if it does, I’ll cover the essential stuff in an end of the arc post.
This is what you all want to see anyway, right?
Well, this was a really cool episode. Quick paced, really compelling, possibility of a deeper plot. It only took us what…17 episodes to get there? Oh well. The new arch starts off with a new villain, although it’s quickly becomes obvious who he is despite his identity being hidden until the end of the episode. After all, we only have one character with untied plot ends, and that very same character would have the motivation to commit the crimes.
Roscharh! Well, no, although an anime adaptation of Watchman would be awesome if done right.
