I’ll just do a fast swing at this since I’ve explained a lot in my reviews
LAND OF THE TERRIBAD:
FAULTY BUT WATCHABLE:
Rinne no Lagrange: 8.0
I felt a bit iffy with the whole Madoka angst but overall, Rinne’s last month felt like a build up to the next season. Everyone’s separated ways after the whole “pretty flowers falling into the sky” act. I never really got the significance of that but whatever. ONWARDS TO SEASON 2 THIS SUMMER!
Nichibros. : 8.3
The comedy started to go slightly dry but the anime insults haven’t. In particular the whole last scene in the last episode where everything was played straight feels like a facepalm now seeing how stupid these clichés actually are. I salute you for this Nichibros., I really do.
The last two episodes were sort of downers, especially since the rest of the series spent time building up the mystery. The BIG REVEAL is mindfuck amazing though, but overall, this isn’t Another’s best month.
Ano Natsu de Matteru: 8.6
Mixed bag for this month. Episodes 9 and 10 were pretty amazing, Top tier quality romance. Episodes 11 and 12 is shit. Seriously, the Sci-fi element cheapens the whole thing! Though Lemon-senpai turning out to be MBI was pretty damn cool.
Step down from Bake, as I’ve mentioned already. Still, that toothbrush scene will always be etched in my mind forever.
Aquarion EVOL: 9.0
I’m including Episode 14 in this because that’s the reason why EVOL is rated so high this month. The level of surrealism in that episode just raised the weirdness bar on this series, which was pretty high already.
Fudo ordered the students to bury themselves on the graveyard to feel death. Mikono was opposed to this so she didn’t follow orders and after a few minutes, the original Aquarion OP starts playing and Mikono’s power was revealed (something about connecting green lines or whatever). Then everyone popped up of the ground and Mikono shouts “Happy Birthday!” to all of them.
Weird but awesome.
I WANT A SEQUEL NOW!
ALL TIME FAVORITE:
Average month I guess. . . not much to say that I haven’t already. I don’t wanna be repetitive. Toodles!
