Flip Flappers, Episode 3
Here are the quick takes on the episodes I watched last week…
Trickster: Episode 3
Another standalone mystery – not as dull as the one in the previous week, though. I was glad to see more of Akechi. And it was important to try to get Kobayashi fitting into the team. He’s not there yet, but progress was made.
Shakunetsu no Takkyū Musume (Scorching Ping Pong Girls): Episode 3
Just about everything one would expect in the battle between the two top players on the team – very well done. Cool that Agari finally unleashed her forehand smashes, also. I’m glad Agari is good with with the outcome.
Hibike! Euphonium 2: Episode 3
Good answers this week to a couple of mysteries plus bonus info about Taki-sensei. I continue to like Asuka a lot. Even Yūko made a good showing this week. As always, the episode was strongly directed and animated.
Girlish Number: Episode 2
This series has a little bit of bite… should be fun!
Bungou Stray Dogs: Episode 15
I thought this was going to be a fairly quiet and cerebral episode – despite the unleashing of Akutagawa in battle. But the ending – wow – thrust a knife into my heart, why don’t you? This episode was quietly powerful then outrageously powerful. I liked how Dazai carried himself throughout. Oda also.
Bungou Stray Dogs: Episode 16
Surprise! We got a bonus episode this week! And what a marvelous episode it was! The End of Oda Arc was masterful – and now we know Dazai’s backstory, and why he left Port Mafia. I was impressed.
Yurii!!! on Ice: Episode 3
Hot! Very Hot on Ice! Outstanding episode with shining direction, choreography, and art. I had expected Yurio to be hanging around longer – so again I’ve not much of a clue how this story is going to go. Wherever it goes, the show is apt to be captivating.
Flip Flappers: Episode 3
I feel like I missed an episode – but I don’t mind at all. This episode took off and didn’t take its foot off the accelerator until the very end. An overdose of colorful action and fun. Fun includes a classic yet modern mahou shoujo transformation sequence. (^_^) I liked the look and feel and pace of the episode.
Drifters: Episode 3
Yeah… I don’t really have time for this. There’s a lot of violence… and the characters and their eras are just gonna be a mess to untangle. I’ve been losing interest since we aren’t sticking with any likeable characters. The entire setup is a kind of insane chaos. This show is now dropped from my watch list.
Haikyū!! Karasuno Kōkō VS Shiratorizawa Gakuen Kōkō: Episode 3
Man, this is nerve-wracking! However, it’s nice that Tsukki is starting to grow into his position – we desperately need something extra from him this match! Ganbatte, Karasuno!
Watashi ga Motete Dōsunda (a.k.a. Kiss Him, Not me): Episode 3
Well… nice to see lots of Shingeki no Kyojin cosplay anyway. The rest was rather trite and painful. I’m going to drop this series.
Bloodivores : Episode 4
I’ve given this series four episodes, but it hasn’t shown enough to earn a spot on this season’s long watchlist. I need to cut more shows, and I couldn’t find a reason to keep this one. Gone.
Shūmatsu no Izetta (a.k.a. Izetta, the Last Witch): Episode 4
I’m not liking how things are going for Izetta… this way lies madness… well… at least a whole bunch of problems. I’m sure things are going to start getting very messy next week.
WWW.Working!!: Episode 4
Some parts were good. Some parts were painful. Some parts were sad. I suppose the best scene in this episode was meeting Hana’s mom. This series continues to fall far short of the regular Working!! series. If the show didn’t have the Working!! pedigree, I’d drop it. But for now it says on the list.
Mahō Shōjo Ikusei Keikaku (Magical Girl Raising Project): Episode 4
Thankfully they took no time to eliminate the least likeable mahou shoujo. The way it was done was not expected and was well-crafted. Swim Swim and La Pucelle made good showings. I went into this episode looking for reasons to drop the series, but they’ve bought some time.
Sangatsu no Lion (a.k.a. March Comes in Like a Lion): Episode 3
Both chapters were excellent – great stories in different ways. I liked the music a lot, too. Harunobu gains some sympathy (after being simply annoying last week)… the Kawamoto family gets sympathy also. The show’s style remains a confusing mix of Umino’s gentleness and Shaft’s sparklyness – but I’m getting used to it.
Udon no Kuni no Kin-iro Kemari (a.k.a. Poco’s Udon World): Episode 3
Introduction of Nakajima – a mix of annoying and useful foil for Souta. Anything to prod Souta into staying and reopening the restaurant is helpful, I think. The episode was gentle, noisy, goofy, and thoughtful. It was fine.
Haikyū!! Karasuno Kōkō VS Shiratorizawa Gakuen Kōkō, Episode 3
