Since finals are over, I can finally relax. With Christmas coming upon us in six more days, I still have unfinished business such as the Secret Santa Anime, which is collecting dust and the last part of the 12 Days of Anime Project. Hopefully they will get done in the next three days so I can end of the year editorials and of course, games.
Just as a notice, because of Christmas lands on a weekend this year, Fate/zero Episode 13 post will get delayed until Monday. Otherwise, enjoy the Secret Santa posts as they come this Saturday (Image Source).
1. The iDOLM@STER – Episode 24
If you already see my featured commentary on kevo’s Power Rankings that came out today, this episode was so excellent that it doesn’t need any further explaining. However, it’s kind of sad that the next episode is the last one. Hopefully, the songs they have in the big, 2nd live performance will convince me to buy the last Animation Master.
2. Fate/zero – Episode 12
Although this week’s discussion wasn’t as interesting compared to last week, the discussion between Kirei and Gilgamesh fascinated me. Basically, Kirei gets dragged back into it after showing his hidden pleasure of watching people suffer as shown with his interest in Motou Kariya.
Also, I have noticed that most of the episodes shown thus far only focuses on either all talk or action, but not both. Although the storytelling is great and all, balance is key, which is why Episode 11 was so great along with a few other episodes…
3. Shinryaku!? Ika Musume – Episode 10
This episode was mildly entertaining, mostly because the Three Stooges decided to turn a hot summer day into winter. This fits the mood since it’s almost Christmas and winter arrives in a matter of days. Still, I kind of felt bad for Goro since Chizuru beats him up. Hopefully, he will recover from all the injuries.
Working Second Season – Episodes 9 and 10
Needless to say, these two episodes of Working had so many adorable moments that I got overloaded with cuteness. First, Yachiyo’s shyness while Satou buys a cellphone for her made my nosebleed and Inami’s reaction in the next episode simply made me faint in happiness. To add the cherry on top on the sundae, Souta cross-dresses as Kotori one last time to give what Inami wants, his cellphone number.
