Bit of a bobble this week, posting a day early because I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon. As it works out, only one show gets skipped but such is life. Anyhow, we’ve got a lot to chat about so hit the jump and let’s run down this week’s episodes!
Welcome to my Spring 2020 anticipation post! Some choices are easy, sequels, continuations, adaptations of material I’m familiar with… The rest, working from ad blurbs and PVs on YouTube… Sometimes it’s like reading tea leaves. Through the wrong end of a telescope.
I know, I know… Theoretically I’m on hiatus from weekly postings, but I couldn’t resist a few observations.
Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) Season 3 Part 2 – Episodes 56-57
After 56 episodes of waiting, we’re finally in that d*mm basement… And what we find there is like nothing I could have ever imagined. My head is still reeling over all the implications. Two very interesting ones: First, there’s now a potential second claimant to Historia’s throne. Second, the name of her friend/protector in the Scout Regiment takes on some interesting significance.
Fruits Basket continues to be a basket of feels each week. How does it manage to accomplish in a few minutes what other shows would take a week or two to build up to?
Senryu Girl (Senryuu Shoujo) Episode 11
Each week I just fall in love with this show all over again… Part of it is Nanako, but I have to admit to sneaky admiration for Eiji’s characterization. Like this week, when the doofus completely misses the import of putting a ring on her ring finger! The show has made it abundantly clear he cares for Nanako, so he’s not the typical oblivious anime protagonist. He’s just clueless and dense in an endearingly clumsy way.
Any thoughts? Feel free to share them down in the comments!
I can’t believe it’s that time of year already… Spring is about to spring, and with it a fresh new crop of anime. And that means it’s time to peer into the crystal ball and try and figure out what tempts me to watch it.
Yeah, the title is a hoary old joke… But, what the heck. It works for me.
