Yamato 2199 Group Watch – Episode 19


Episode 18 – They’re Here

Screenshot (450)Not an action filled episode, but a prelude to the action. Not much happens in some ways…  But it’s filled with interesting character moments, and brings past threads and events into the current context.  Most importantly, it’s setting the stage as 2199 moves towards its climax.

Yamato 2199 Group Watch – One Week Pause

Screenshot (443).png

My deepest apologies, but I’m going to have to take a break this week.

Last night, one of our guinea pigs spent the night at the vet’s in intensive care…  We adopted Miss Molly mostly fully grown in April of 2012, so she’s getting pretty close to seven years old.  That’s pretty old for a piggie (80-85 in human terms?), and her health is increasingly frail.  With the problems she’s already having, last night was pretty scary, I didn’t sleep well, and my head isn’t exactly in a place for creative work.

Hopefully she comes home today (watch my twitter for updates), but the future is increasingly cloudy.  (Not helped by having another pig with inoperable cancer.)

Yeah, probably more than you wanted to know, sorry.

Anyhow, the short version is that it was one h*ll of an action packed episode…  Scott’s review, linked below, covers all that pretty well.  Hit the link and give it a read!  There’s some stuff I want to talk about, but I’ll add it to next week’s post.

Anyhow, hit the jump and let’s run down what I think of this week’s new crop of episodes!

A question for my readers…

Screenshot (416).pngThis is… wow. An episode that reveals some painful truths about the past… The title of the ep (“Out of the Forest of Memories”) is a very apt one.

Looking back – Winter 2014

As it happens, the Winter 2018 season marks four years since I started watching seasonal anime…  So, just for fun, each season I’m going to look back four years.
