Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae Ep. 18: Special Radio

27 April, 2009

Foreboding enough for you?

To be perfectly honest, I’ve already finished Mitsuganae, but I’ve been far too lazy to actually write about it.  I’ll try to clear the backlog in good time, however.  Meanwhile, only one show has caught me eye so far for the new season: K-On!  The others…well, so far they’re falling flat on their faces, although Tears to Tiara may have SOME promise.  If I clear this backlog in a reasonable amount of time, I’ll start that maybe.  Speaking of backlogs, I’ve had Abyss done for like…ever.

Back to this episode.  Simply put?  I couldn’t buy into this episode at all.  Especially looking at it in hindsight, with so much goodness at the end of the series…meh, well, here you go.  For completeness sake.

Tales of the Abyss Ep. 18 + 19

25 February, 2009

Part II: Complete!

Another double dose of Tales of the Abyss!  It’s transition time as we phase from Part II to Part III of the game, complete with new developments!

In other news, I’ll have more of Jigoku Shoujo soon.  I have to translate Episode 15 anyway, so I might as well write an entry for it while I’m at it, no?

I do have this to say though – this season has again been rather underwhelming, and I’m watching shows from the previous season (ToraDORAMA, To Aru Majutsu no Index, Tales of the Abyss, Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae).  With that said, next season looks pretty good.  Shangri-La, yay~!  Or, for more mind-numbing madness, Hayate S2!  O_o;;

Macross Frontier Ep. 18: Fold Fame

11 August, 2008

Poor Sheryl, we finally see her for an extended period of time again and she’s a total wreck.  It’s not the magical “rags to riches” story for her, either.  Grace has also been revealed to be an insane ghoul with human skin.  Anyway, we get an episode that moves forward at a much slower pace than before.  This is probably because we finally see more of Sheryl’s history, and make a bit of progress into her part of the series.  It all ends with a bang.  Literally.

To borrow a phrase, though: Isn’t it sad, Sacchin Sheryl?
