Ah, deadlines. They frequently cast me into particularly precarious situations where I run the risk of having my ass handed to me on a shining platter. That said, I haven’t slept for over a day and I’ve been working nearly all that time. You know what that means? Work harder and get it done? No, silly! It means that I should write an anime post about all the episodes I ran through this past weekend…with six hours left ticking on the clock. Oh, dear.
No. 6 is a Noitamina anime and it brings a lot of expectations along with it, at least from my perspective. It’s being produced by BONES (Fullmetal Alchemist, anyone?) and even has some light novel source material to cover for it. But from what’s been shown this week, there will be no grand science fiction plot like I had initially hoped. Yes, it’s still going to contain sci-fi elements, but it’s not going to go the route I hoped for: something like Fractale, but better.
As for Daikichi and Rin, well, their story is getting on a little better. I have no qualms with the story anymore as I’ve come to realize that this show isn’t going to throw any drama at me, the likes of which Ano Hana did in large quantities. Harrumph, why, yes, that just may be a new love interest for Daikichi.
It’s been said before, and I won’t be the last one to say it again but Mayo Chiki’s saving grace is the skillful balance that’s struck between all of its elements. You have beautifully twisted characters like Suzutsuki controlling everyone else through her schemes, though they’re well-intentioned, and gynophobes like Kinjirou and aichmophobes like Subaru Konoe. Funny how the two main characters each have their own weaknesses.
Kanade Suzutsuki takes everyone to a water park after telling Kureha, Jirou’s sister, that she’s happily going steady with Jirou. She’s suspicious at first, that is, until Suzutsuki agrees to help Kureha in her pursuit of Konoe. Poor girl, she doesn’t know that she’s a reverse-trap. Read the rest of this entry
Yippee! In little under a month my blog’s jumped even further.
Noticed that there were quite a few lurkers out there, but for those of you that commented and visited this site frequently, kudos to you.
Oh, and kudos to you lurkers, as well, at least you visited.
