Anime of the Week (9/23 – 9/29)

Anime of the Week – Rinne no Lagrange 2
All too often the fun series that lack deeper meaning get overlooked a little too easily in favor of their more grandiose counterparts. But there’s nothing wrong with keeping things simple and just telling a straightforward, solid story that’s well-paced and feels really good.                              
September 23 SAO Ep. 12 A great example of something that pushes our conception of sentience. Sadly, it seems the heroes’ honeymoon will be cut short.
Kokoro Connect Ep. 12 I think rediscovering important things you forgot from your childhood would be worth turning back into a kid.
September 24 Total Eclipse Ep. 13 Yuuya can’t die yet, but he’s in a real pinch. How honest our heroes will be with their feelings remains to be seen.
Lagrange 2 Ep. 12 What a weird and somehow fitting ending to a series that did a great job dancing the line between serious and silly.
Dog Days 2 Ep. 12 The story seems to have glossed over that this is an action / romance at its heart because the conflict has escaped.
Hagure Yuusha Ep. 12 If Accel World is the epitome of a good open ending, then this series is a case for conclusions that need more closure.
Eureka AO Ep. 21 At this point, the plot has been lost entirely. I’m so hopelessly confused by jumbled pasts and poorly-informed motives.
September 26 Tari Tari Ep. 13 It’s really ironic. In an attempt to be truly beautiful and dramatic, everything instead feels over the top and empty.
H ga Dekinai Ep. 11 I’m not sure a somber tone is the right move. Everything was always so lighthearted and honest—if at times too ecchi.
September 28 H ga Dekinai Ep. 12 This was a nice surprise. The ending turned out smart, moving and best of all it resolved in a really original way.
September 29 Koichoco Ep. 12 Chisato has some smart remarks to Yuuki regarding his prioritizing her over the election they all worked so hard on.
Eureka AO Ep. 22 How many times will every character change their affiliation or alliance? I get that right and wrong are in flux, but jeez.
