Spring 2019 – Week 12(ish)

A few quick observations so as not to totally lose my momentum…

Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) Season 3 Part 2 – Episode 9 / Episode 58

Well, now we know where Eren got his tendency towards self indulgent/self pitying monologues…  He comes by it honest, inherited from his father.  (I kid…  Mostly.)

Speaking of inheritances, I’m still working out the implications of Eren possessing Royal blood and the Founding Titan.

A fascinating episode, fraught with portents for the future.  We’re in for less action and more politics I’m afraid.

Joshi Kausei Episode 12 (Finale)

I wish they’d chose more chapters from the manga like this one…  Joshi Kausei was always at it’s best when it’s just the friends derping around doing goofy stuff just because.

Kono Oto Tomare!: Sounds of Life Episode 12

Is it just me, or was the episode mostly filler(ish) so they could cliffhanger for the finale?

Senryu Girl (Senryuu Shoujo) Episode 12 (Finale)

There were two things many viewers wanted out of this show as the season progressed.  One was to see Eiji and Nanako become a canon couple.  We didn’t get that.  The other, was to see their first meeting…  and we did get that!  I don’t know if it lived up to anyone else’s expectations, but I was smiling all through the episode.  I won’t call it perfect, but it was pretty damn good.

I also wanted to talk a little about Eiji’s senryu…

Dear Mr. Santa
Can you convince my old man
Not to smoke in bed

I actually thought it was pretty good.  A nice blend of the childish (Santa) with the adult (concern for safety and health).  Seems to me about right for a first year high school student.  Others often see Eiji as a violent thug, but the poem once again reminds us (the viewers) that there’s more to that book than the cover.

Any thoughts?  Drop a comment and let’s chat!

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.

Anyhow, let’s hit the jump an run ’em down!
