I think this post is mostly spoiler-free, because it’s also mostly content-free. But you probably shouldn’t read it until you’ve watched the finale.
Kyousuke Kousaka, I salute you and your heart that is clear as the Windows XP blue sky background.
I used to do Shotokan Karate. When blocking, they taught me to wait for the last possible moment and then block. You do this so your opponent can’t react and change their attack. The block is meant to be both defense and a counter. Knocking away the incoming punch/kick, and ideally doing some damage as well. Toshio and Natsuno have waited and waited. Watching the town being withered away. Watching their friends, family and even themselves die out. But finally in the 18th episode, they counter. And oh, what a counter.
The shipping battle lines are drawn. Even though most of the initial skirmishes have been polite, a greater battle brews…

SisCaly. Are you kidding me?
This is the third of the anime I checked out. I decided I’ll blog Fortune Arterial, but please enjoy this anyway.
So I’ve thought about this for days, after I watched Kuragehime, and I can only come to one conclusion. I just don’t know. I don’t know if I like or I don’t. I’m not overly in love with it. I thought some parts were really amazing, but some parts grated on my nerves, and there still so much that the viewer doesn’t know, that I feel like I need more episodes before I can tell.
There’s bit and pieces I just really loved. The main characters comment about how what bonded them together was that even though they liked different things, they were deep down, nerds, and recognized that. The main characters knowledge about jellyfish, and the way she snuck in these scientific facts. The jellyfish we got to see was extremely cute. There’s of course the irony of thinking she’s come across the perfect women, only to discover he’s a man, which I found very funny.
Oreimo’s Kyousuke, who managed to not get bitchslapped by his dad after forcefully grabbing his collar.
Talking things over with good ole’ RP, I’m going to check out three anime, and then choose one to blog. One of them was Psychic Detective Yakumo. The second choice should hopefully surprise a lot of people, as no one gave this much notice.
