This week's Anime screenshot is from Bungou Stray Dogs
Wow, week 9 of the season already? I'm surprised it feels like this anime season is going by faster than it normally does! Maybe because I enjoy must of it? Who knows! Anyway, make sure you're caught up with everything so you don't get spoiled and enjoy my thoughts on this week!
November 22nd, Tuesday:
Kaijuu Girls: Ultra Kaijuu Gijinka Keikaku:This episode was...interesting. We switched to a more serious tone, turns out Kaijuu girls can go berserk. Eleking takes care of things this episode just being a general badass! I loved it! I think Windom losing it over something so small was stupid but eh I'll let it go since I've been adoring this show so much so far. I'm excited to see more fights, especially with the shadow things! It's going to be awesome when we get to that!
Soul Buster:Finally, we got to focus on Shu and the main character. They do seem to have a good bond and it got better now. It's going to be sad when the girl he was with wakes up and realizes that the card that served her died. I'm really interested in what the villains are going to do now, they don't seem so bad more like they're stuck serving a bad person. This show still moves pretty slow but it's still pretty good!
Nobunaga no Shinobi:This episode focused on that battle aftermath and introduced a new character! Nana and Hideyoshi didn't get romance sadly but a new character was introduced who tried to record what the shinobi were doing. I like how it ended like the show was over I laughed hardest at that part! It was another good episode!
Soushin Shoujo Matoi:This episode was awesome! I think one of the best of the series! Yayoi, unfortunately, lost her powers. Turns out exorcist girls can lose their powers if they overuse it. Matoi used her powers fully and bonded better with her father. She will apparently be the first to open the highest dimension which should be pretty cool. A problem with this show is that it's a big world with limited episodes (most likely only 12 episodes). It can create some issues but still this is a good and fun show!
Natsume Yuujinchou Go:This was another good episode, another heartwarming one! Natsume and his friends go to a place to see a festival and an old woman is a yokai. She was special to Kaname and Natsume doesn't tell anyone she is but there's this big chase over a mask she needs to protect. This was better than the last episode and it was great! Natsume is always so heartwarming but this one took the cake in that department for sure!
Nanbaka:This episode was interesting. The show has completely shifted gears in tone or at least kind of has. I think this show may shift it around too much too suddenly. It's only one small issue though the rest of the show is still fun! Also, I'm pretty sure guards aren't allowed to nearly beat the inmates half to death. Then again if we were being realistic this place would be slapped so hard with a load of human rights violation. I honestly hope that Juugo does get the revenge he wanted. The guy he was fighting was a huge prick! Good episode despite the tone shift! Making it that supernatural powers are a thing here was an interesting direction to take it and I think the show can make it work for itself.
November 23rd, Wednesday:
Stella No Mahou:I like the new character! She's really cute but I still think her voice is a bit too screechy. She has such a cute design though her hair color is unique compared to the other characters. I hope she winds up joining their group I think she'd be a great addition because of how passionate she is. She's doing art for the game but I'm not sure if she'll be in the show more afterward. This was a good funny episode!
Cheating Craft:This was funny as well. It was kind of weird but Mi Lui was supposedly learning how to control fire in some big building. An odd way of going about that lesson. It was still funny what he went through with the elevator and the steam room. I liked this even though it was pretty random!
To Be Hero:This was...interesting. Min hasn't picked up something was off about her Dad yet but the group that's obviously going to be saving her is quite the interesting bunch. The end shot was quite interesting, to say the least. A lot more vulgar and odd humor this episode. Pretty funny but there's a point where it just gets weird and overdoing it you know? Still liked this a good amount but yeah this episode was weird.
Kiitarou Shounen no Youkai Enikki:This episode was cute. The character's discovered a map that made anyone who looked into it lucky. Kiitarou and the other two main female yokai had to draw the girl out because she felt she was too ugly to go outside anymore. I really liked this it was super cute! I didn't know the Yuki Onna could draw so well but that part was the best!
Mahou Shoujo Nante Mou Ii Desukara. 2nd Season:This was super funny. We got to kind of see Mitton's backstory except he was lying and making it all over-dramatic. They should be easier to him though and stop being so mean as funny as those scenes are! The penguin I like more of the two magical girl familiars. She's so calm and casual especially here. A good episode from this as always!
Anitore! XX:All the characters were involved here! I'm not sure if Hiraoka actually got possessed by anyone but I doubt it. I learned a little bit from this episode as well I'm glad they care about Hiraoka so much they all want to be her friend, most of them anyway. The new girl just seems to want a subject or she's just showing her want for friendship in her own way.
Nazotokine:The puzzle was solved. The dragon was around but didn't really do anything. They definitely are harder everytime we come back to the next puzzle. Everything was back to normal but nothing super significant happened? A typical ending for the show. An average episode from this not much to report this time around.
Hibike! Euphonium 2:I'm annoyed yet again. Kumiko's sister wants to be a beautician and neither of the parents ever paid attention to their daughter's wishes and desires. The show seems to set it up like it's her fault because she went along with it. That is pretty shitty of the shows narrative since obviously her father is very stern. He said he wouldn't financially support her if she went for that dream! That's so unfair and the show never gives justice to the people that deserve it!
Yes her sister was a bit mean to Kumiko all things considered but it was resolved and it seems she'll be nicer about her sister's endeavors but still. Is anyone going to challenge their controlling father!? What are they going to do about that abusive Mom from the last episode? Evidently, nothing because all these people care about is the god damn concert band. Nothing matters as long as their playing isn't flat. If it does fall flat then SUCK IT UP CUPCAKES.
The characters here are obsessed with this club! I didn't like this episode. It pissed me off and they need to take this band thing way less seriously. Even if they are competing in a contest the emotional well-being of the students is far more important than some silly instruments and competitions. People are more important!
