As I said on Twitter yesterday, I got some very bad family news…. And as a result, my motivation/creativity is right out the window. Do want to get at least a shortened post out this week, to keep some kind of momentum. So, hit the jump and let’s chat!
The shows that I am watching are in bold, shows my wife and I are watching together are in bold italics,
strikethrough marks dropped shows and (*) marks shows that are watched but not regularly reviewed.
Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka / Mahou Shoujo Tokushusen Asuka Episode 9
Against my better judgement, not actually dropped. Verging on hate-watching though, which is not a good place to be.
Run with the Wind / Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru Episode 21
Interesting background on Nico-senpai. He’s pretty much the last one I figured that would harbor broken dreams of athletic passion.
That’s episode 21 of 23… One for Kakeru’s run, one for Haij’s? That’s how I see it.
Sword Art Online: Alicization Episode 21
The fight between Eugo and Kirito was the first time since the goblins in the cave that I actually felt there was any kind of stakes… And it was over all too soon.
(*) That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 23
So, the regular series ends… not with a bang, but with a whimper. With a goodly chunk of the episode filled with re-cap montage. And another goodly chunk filled with a “where are they now” montage.
The Price of Smiles / Egao no Daika Episode 10
Felt like it was spinning it’s wheels…
THE PROMISED NEVERLAND / Yakusoku no Neverland Episode 9
I expected some kind of roadblock, but nothing quite so… insurmountable.
Scene of the week: Norman’s measured tread and breakdown when he went to fetch water for Emma… Matched by the deep breath and smile when he went back into her room.
The Quintessential Quintuplets / 5 Toubun no Hanayome Episode 9
Hmm… looks like Ichika is making her move?
Seems like a bunch of one-liners this week, so it goes. I’m caught up through Tuesday though, so I’m good with chatting in the comments. Some of the best parts of this blog happen in the comments anyhow!
