At last, winter comes to a close. Therefore, this marks the last Anime Weekly post for this season. Next week, I will be sharing my impressions for the first two to three episodes before resuming this (I plan on blogging Atelier Escha and Logy and Love Live 2).
Nagi no Asukara – Episode 25
It was not so surprising that the 2nd Ofunehiki festival was a complete failure mostly because the sea-god is angry that his sacrifice got taken away. If they knew this was going to happen, they should have just brought only males so that history wouldn’t repeat itself. Even so, it’s a good thing that the unease Chisaki has been experiencing is finally resolved since the pebble already revealed that Manaka loves Hikari. With this, it’s obvious that Miuna will be the biggest loser for the fact that all the male characters are in a relationship except her. While one can argue that she didn’t intend to sacrifice herself, I feel that she had nothing to lose mostly for the fact that her love for Hikari was one-sided. Sure, her mom and father would be sad, but if this sacrifice is the one that ends all sacrifices while making Hikari and Manaka happy, perhaps it’s for the best.
Nisekoi – Episode 12
While I find it hilarious that Chitoge managed to break the handle of her key before she can unlock it, it’s clear that Raku met her during his childhood in addition to Kosaki and some unknown girl after the boss of the gang of Chitoge reminds him of his past. If he actually given each girl a key, it just made the fight to win Raku’s heart more interesting, especially for Chitoge because she might have unlocked the locket already once it gets repaired. Either way, once Marika gets introduced, I think things will finally get more interesting as the mystery behind the girl he made a promise to first deepen.
With that, this concludes the final Anime Weekly for winter. Please stay tuned as I share my impressions for three newly airing shows for this spring.
