As the fall semester comes to a close, it appears that things are only going to get busier. Once finals are over, I’ll play catch up on marathoning the Secret Santa Anime I have been sitting on along with finishing the first level of Genki I in my Japanese self-study. Hopefully I can get that done before I start my video gaming binge after Christmas.
Also this morning, my mother went into surgery as mentioned earlier… I’ll keep everyone posted on the status. (Image Source)
1. The iDOLM@STER – Episode 22
With Jupiter out of the overall picture, I have to say that this episode was great Christmas episode because of it. Not only that, watching Yukiho blow out her birthday candles was cute. Of course, Haruka was the main focus of this episode as her trump card wears away and becomes overshadowed by everyone, especially Miki. Hopefully in the next episode, she will realize her full potential and give Producer a present.
2. Fate/zero – Episode 10
Oh man, Rin was so adorable in this episode despite the dark atmosphere. Still, I had mixed feelings on this episode considering how unrealistic it is for her to gain so much mana in a short period of time. On the other hand, Ryuunosuke is now severely weakened and it sets the stage for Kariya, Aoi and Tokiomi regarding the Grail War.
3. Shinryaku?! Ika Musume Episode 8
I have a bad feeling that this would happen. Despite enjoying the second part since watching Ika torture herself in her cold turkey of shrimp was hilarious, the other two parts were dull. This made it seem like they ran out of good jokes or something. Still, they have 4 episodes to turn that trend around. ¶
