Confused, distraught, distressed, these are all adjectives that describe my state the second the OP started. I will concede that, going in, I didn’t expect much of the plot, or characters, I would’ve watched the anime just for the sake of its soundtrack, but the OP, sacred in Bebop with its Tank!, had been defiled with vocals and surprising state of not-jazz, despite the whole anime being focused on that genre. Gone were my hopes of a spiritual successor to bebop with its themes and tunes, and in its stead I got this; a bewildering series of scenes, coupled with an even more perplexing song. Needless to say, that within the first minute of the first episode of this anime, my expectations were crushed- badly.
Us being students, we are busy and seeing that nobody really looks out for these episodics, no one will mind if it’s late right? Plus we have this secret that the writer’s of this blog are actually school idols struggling to save our school from being closed due to not having enough students enrolling. Yeah, I know right! Tough times man.
Unfortunately, due to a schedule caught in the stranglehold of Singaporean pre-university education, I’ve missed last week’s Tamako Market episodic review. With education’s grip on my throat only loosened slightly, and a need to catch up, here are two slightly more concise reviews on the last two episodes of this series. Thankfully, the subject matter for those episodes are similar enough to talk about them in the same poorly-worded paragraph: something about how a pacific islander fortune teller girl goes to Japan to retrieve her semi-robotic metrosexual cockatoo. Typing that last bit just made me lose several IQ points, and I’m about to lose more… Well, here we go:
Dates. Something I haven’t experienced but anime seems to make it seem to be such an enriching and enjoyable experience that sometimes I wonder what dates are like in the real world.
This episode has everything. EVERYTHING! Action, fanservice, lots of feels and great voice acting!
Apparently, Karuta is also loved by people all over the world. What am I saying, everyone who has watched Chihayafuru has been influenced by Chihaya. The same goes to everyone who has seen Chihaha and this applies to foreigners too!
Oh yeah! We get another episode where we see Kobato!
After spending nearly 1 and a half season of anime to explain to us what the heck a Center Nova is without doing anything, it’s nice to finally have her reveal. Oh wait she’s gone. Too bad.
“We’re in the second season and she still doesn’t know what the title means?!” We have come to the second season and apparently, our main character still does not know the meaning of the title, which has part of her name.
