Anime of Tomorrow

Anime of the Week (6/3 – 6/9)

Anime of the Week – Hyouka
This continues week after week to be one of the best thinking person’s anime that’s been able to scratch my puzzle itch for quite a while. Probably the most important thing it displays is mastery of pacing out its clues between dialogue, setting and visual hints.                                
June 4 Acchi Kocchi Ep. 9 Sometimes it’s best to keep things simple. But other times it’s better to stick with what you know how to do well.
Fate/Zero Ep. 22 Maybe I could appreciate all this philosophical talk if I didn’t know it was all for naught. But it feels so empty to me.
Accel World Ep. 9 Yuniko’s methods may have been underhanded, but with a boss character looming over everything it’s understandable.
Eureka AO Ep. 8 I get that Generation Bleu’s mission isn’t to save Naru, but deviating from her predicament doesn’t feel right to me.
Hyouka Ep. 7 Onsen episodes often aren’t done correctly, but there’s nothing inherently bad about them. Just make sure there’s a story.
June 6 Tasogare Otome Ep. 9 Seeing Yuuko’s shadow develop a personality with Teiichi between them is like living in someone’s mental disorder.
June 7 Jormungand Ep. 9 I wonder why this anime is so hung up on using euphemisms for the names of all the warring countries Koko works for.
Medaka Box Ep. 4 This series has no pressure to finish an ongoing story arc and will let it spill partway into the next episode if needed.
