February has finally come to a quick end and winter is almost over. We are finally at the home stretch now!
Dog Days Double Dash – Episode 8
Compared to last week’s episode, I felt that this week’s was more interesting because Adel finally reveals her past on how she was summoned by Fi and then, going on an adventure with her and her younger brother to hunt demons.
There are some things that were interesting aside from Adel not having any family on earth and wanting to stay with the princess. First, Valerio, Fi’s younger brother was still a pervert even though he wasn’t evil at all. Also, little Hina was rather cute despite her inability to grow up due to being soaked in demon’s blood. It’s not until Valerio found a way to help her grow up while maintaining her immortality. It just shows that he is not completely evil given that he helped his older sister achieve her dream of making Flonyard peaceful by getting rid of the demons and cursed blades.
Although Fi’s eventual death was very emotional, thankfully as her kingdom remembers her while Adel and Valerio went into their slumber until they were awakened in the second season. It’s such a shame that she had to pass away just like that. Still, there are still a few things that the story did not reveal. How did Adel get the star-shape pupils and where did the cursed blades originated? I guess these two things will remain a mystery, for now at least.
Shirobako – Episode 20
We are finally heading to the home stretch and Shizuka is still nowhere to be seen. Because of this, I felt bad for her since she deserves a role despite getting rejected every time. Meanwhile, people who don’t deserve a job gets one and I can admit that there is someone worst than Tarou. It’s Hiraoka.
We all know that Hiraoka’s work ethics are crap since he is a jerk to everyone. However, it’s possible that he sabotaged Musani by suggesting Titanic to do their work as thir workers got caught slacking off and producing poor quality work. Basically, Erika and Aoi had to check on them many times to see if things were getting done or not. Now, he has the nerves to get violent with Madoka over being told to redo all the cuts. I’m surprised that he didn’t get fired over that incident considering that nobody is going to put up with that kind of behavior. If someone actually done that in real life, the boss will show you to the door.
In short, don’t be a jerk to your peers, especially in front of your boss unless you want to become unemployed. Even so, this can explain why he got different jobs during the four years he was working. ‘
Also, I felt bad for Midori since that jerk bullied her. At least her interactions with Maitake were funny.
