Anime of the Week (9/29 – 10/5)

Anime of the Week – Coppelion
Taeko, Aoi and Ibara begin their work

Kindness is often a luxury that can only be afforded to those who are comfortable and suffering can sometimes be cyclical, in that the beginning of suffering only perpetuates more suffering. Seeing these two contradictory paths juxtaposed in Coppelion‘s first episode has given me high hopes for future philosophical developments in this series.                              

September 29 Attack on Titan Ep. 25 After so much wasted time throughout this series, I didn’t have high hopes that it would be able to tie up loose ends.
Monogatari Ep. 13 I’ve always loved how this franchise mixes philosophy with a playful comedy that breaks the fourth wall and sucks you in.
October 1 Railgun S Ep. 24 THIS is how you end a series. An epic final battle with one last twist to mix things up and most importantly a conclusion.
Day Break Illusion Ep. 13 Ugh. This series could not find a way to avoid making its more introspective moments too sappy and ruin the mood.
October 3 Servant x Service Ep. 13 I enjoyed this series, but I think it should have avoided romance and focused more on jokes about its quirky setting.
Coppelion Ep. 1 An intriguing setting. What most fascinates me is how the artificially created girls are more human than the natural people.
Kyoukai no Kanata Ep. 1 It had to happen eventually. Kyoto animation, the creators of K-ON! have finally made an anime that’s dark and bloody.

    I really need to get started on this new season. I read everything I could of the Coppelion manga, so I’ve been looking forward with great anticipation to the anime. Was the first episode action packed as well as philosophical? To tell you the truth, I was expecting the show to be more action oriented, so I’m pleased to hear that the animators are giving it some depth.

      Actually the first episode was completely devoid of any action whatsoever. It was all walking around the gorgeous setting and talking about what had happened, how the mission is going to proceed and debating the finer points of what it means to be human.
