Uchouten Kazoku: aftermath


They didn't eat her.

What else did I note this episode? Benten got back to Master's side, I'd guess she was just being shy... lol, shy.  Pic related to the left, but I admire Yasaburou's inge... no, simply his sense of what is to be done; because it was not like he thought at all before doing this, it just seemed right to him, there was no need for him to search for this idea, it was his first instinct.
It was great how Master didn't address Yasaburou in the shrine visit scene: a silent approval of his growth, as if Yasaburou is already as good of a tanuki as they get. A sign of graduation as his disciple. Like Benten. Who honored us with some of the cutest expressions of hers in the whole anime.
And, goddamn, Kaisei. She was
so fucking cute
The most level-headed of them all, and the token one doing everything the right way. Maybe my favourite character... which says quite a fucking lot when you account for Benten and Yasaburou, whom I associate my own self with.

What can I even say more of the anime as a whole? It was perfect. Loved each of the characters, each of their relations and their talks. Even the secondary ones, and even the background ones. Loved their designs. Loved the art. Loved the direction. Loved the voice actors. Loved the music. Loved the atmosphere. Loved the city. Loved the end.

What I am left with? A fleeting sense of unrest whether Benten is closer in character to me or to the first girl I loved. A fleeting sense of unrest how I shouldn't actually believe I'd be acting exactly like Yasaburou in his situation. And a fleeting sense of unrest that we'll never see a second season.

Neptunia, aftermath.

The more of the "good" heroines were present, the shittier the anime was.

The reverse implication is also true:

If none of the "good" heroines were present, the anime was a flawless masterpiece.

Note: in a sense, the hackers are the ones who truly speak for the people. In that respect, nobody else was in his right to deal with Atari.
In the end, the battle before that was just dirty capitalism, and Arfoire was the only one dealing justice. The only one whose words were not empty cliches.

Sweet dreams, Arfoire.

That made me kind of happy

>>94086424 (You)
>Yours is blatant chihirism
Fuck you.
I still recognize you from years ago.
chihirism made me laugh.
Both because my joke worked, and because somebody remembers me.

Season 3

Ok, that was awful. Practically the whole Goddesses Arc relies heavily on just one scene. The build up who is a goddess and who is not. Everything after it. Doubtless, this was the key scene of everything.

Yet, what? In the anime, it's done badly, with some normal music, skimmed over, with barely any feeling in Katsuragi, and, what's worse, it's slammed in the middle of the episode!


Shit. Really, what the fuck was the big idea? That way the focus on this scene is completely lost! Leave the audience to writhe for a week, thinking over this, and greet us next week with the difficulty of Ayumi's reconquest. That's how it should be done. It's obvious that's the way it should happen. What level of executive meddling happened here to botch this in such a spectacular way? What the fuck is going on? Next skip Chihiro grabbing the spare pick, goddammit!

Symphogeah episode 9

edit: oh, and the torpedo. All in all, a stacked episode, full of important moments, many of which were of the "I called that!" variety. Although I expected Hibiki to be the one with a torpedo.

Now, that I've posted the highlights of the episode (in the last picture count all four times Sugita "did it" during this episode), lemme share something else.
