Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance Episode 9&10- Rush Incoming

Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance Episode 9&10- Rush Incoming

With only 2-3 episodes to go, I can only imagine how rush things will become.

While anime-only endings rarely happen from the shows I’ve at least seen, they’re probably going to go through with yet another arc during the titular Blade Dance event going on at the end. I haven’t read the light novels (nor do I feel like I should) so I wouldn’t know on how grand a scale on how they can try and cram it all in.

Mini’s are getting more frequent.

Sword Art Online II Episode 11- Not Dessu Gan, Dessu GanS

Sword Art Online II Episode 11- Not Dessu Gan, Dessu GanS

The title from last week amplified. With all this explanation and dread about Death Gun, they better make that fight worth it.

The opening shows so much action yet but we barely get any for the past 2 weeks. I know that development is good but damn, maybe I somewhat enjoyed this when all this series was about was simple fighting.

Either way, no surprises on my end because I was spoiled a while back.

Space Dandy 2 Episode 11- Dimension Invaders

Space Dandy 2 Episode 11- Dimension Invaders

These episodes are just getting better and better.

I honestly didn’t expect things to turn out like this, and that’s pretty good. Dandy however seems to be getting a bit more “serious” like they promised back when the 1st season was airing. If you thought the first episode of the second season was the only mention of different dimensions, well, this episode’s got all the numerical interpretations of that concept.

Man, everybody is making Galaga references these days

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders- The Road to Egypt

Only half of the journey is over.

I was extremely biased towards Part 1 and 2’s adaptations that I really never gave any of them a full talk about them back then. Part 3 however is the most widespread part of the series and is also the most iconic so I figured I should give my two-cents on the adaptation. This post shall be a quick recap of the final episode and my thoughts on the adaptation so far and my expectations for the coming conclusion.

Side note: Dandy and SAO are up while Blade Dance will be a two parter.

The real ride begins January

Space Dandy 2 Episode 10- Love Burns Scarlet

Space Dandy 2 Episode 10- Love Burns Scarlet

Dandy increases the significant female count and gives Scarlet her very episode.

All those times I wondered why exactly Scarlet and Honey showed up in the opening alongside the main crew in the montages. I mean yes, they are the most frequently reoccurring members of the cast but they never really got the spotlight other than to be at a certain location to bring in the certain kind of humor. In both of their cases, they got slight development in the Cloudian episode but Scarlet gets her time here.

So let’s get funky with it.

Mini-Sword Art Online II Episode 10- The Final Fight better be worth it

Mini-Sword Art Online II Episode 10- The Final Fight better be worth it

I keep ending up renaming SAO II posts into the Mini category because of the talking instead of the action going on. Now while that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it involves a character that’s getting himself better writing as the series goes along and a character who I objectively like but subjectively hate because I don’t like Miyuki Sawashiro’s voice being part of a harem.

That aside, these extended dialogues that are meant to have somewhat deeper meanings/feelings aren’t making too big of an impact on me and end up being a lot shorter than I would want them to be.

Oh well, like the title suggests, I really hope the last fight is something around the lines of the opening.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3: Stardust Crusaders Episode 23- We All Live In A…

The last stretch before the horizon.

We’ve got a week before I’m left with no fabulous Jojo. While I know the break is well deserved, I can only imagine how well they will animate the superior leg of fights before we reach DIO’s mansion. To get there though, the Joestar will have to do one more crazy stunt with another set of transportation before reaching their destination.

Surprise surprise. While I don’t exactly remember Suzi getting that much showtime in the manga, she gets a hefty scene today.
