    Jet Pack Neko-mimi Wedding Dress GO: This is probably as negative as I will get here. But this was just a straight up terribly composed series. They had lots of cool elements to deal with but bungled as much as they could.

    • skylion says:

      I don’t think Inshun counts as a loli with that rack

      Not even close…

      • BlackBriar says:

        She succeeded gloriously where Yukimura failed miserably. You can’t go against the natural order of the world.

        • skylion says:

          One needs not go against the natural order, one can appreciate the time and place one finds things.

    • Highway says:

      It was definitely a blender type show. “We should put in maid cafes!” “We should put in some evil Samurai!” “We should make someone get married!” It just didn’t work out at all. The second half was far better than the first half, but not enough to pull it up to good.

      • BlackBriar says:

        They tried to do so many things at once that it had the whole story grounded and that was a shame compared to how simplistic the first season was.

  2. skylion says:

    Henneko: Wow. They really rolled out the ecchi elements on this one. Start of Bellybutton, Yokodera’s Younger Brother (look at it from Tsukushi’s pov), and what should have been a kindly mother, that turns into something from The Heart is Deceitful Above all Things (indie film by Asia Argento, no not that one).

    Yeah, all in all, the possibility of untangling this mess in the time left is getting to be pretty interesting. I’m betting they go for, at least, an emotional, if not plot, wrap up.

    Goodness, Tsukiko, you’ve got some moves, girl.

    Spammy took my Henneko…

    • BlackBriar says:

      Wow, you’re really becoming his favorite lately. What have you been attracting him with?

      • skylion says:

        Spammy only takes the best?

        No…

      • Highway says:

        I just don’t mention how many of my comments get caught anymore. It’s downright embarrassing to be a writer and still at the mercy of spammy… :(

        • BlackBriar says:

          You were exposed to Spammy before you became a writer. I guess it has determined that there will be no special treatment.

    Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Bride – 12 [END]: It was a bittersweet finale. The fight was worth watching but the dire situation on the country could have been exploited better if it spanned two episodes instead of doing the usual rush job ending. It pains me to see animes that don’t try to pace themselves.

    Surprisingly, I liked Juubei’s new form but the whole wedding ceremony during a crisis was over the top. I face palmed about two times with that.

    Despite going in the right direction by removing the censors that prevented the fanservice, I was disappointed with Samurai Bride because it lacked the feeling and effort in its storytelling that last season had. And that it wasted it’s potential by cramming the good parts in the second half of the run when using the entire 12 episodes was an option.

  5. KLACMAN says:

    stony cat – yep it’s time travel doing yet look youto & tsukiko look to witness & might alter past give we more reveal that mom was ill.

    & oh marathon watch on photo kano give all seen ep.1 to ep.12 really find quite good series to watch.

    • Highway says:

      Hooray for more people giving Photo Kano a try! I think the series is probably one that will wilt in the natural comparison to Amagami SS, but it may not be fair to compare it to that series. If they were done in the opposite order (i.e. Photo Kano before Amagami), then it would probably have been a lot more well received, even with the limitations of the format. There are so few omnibus shows (Photo Kano, Amagami SS, and Yosuga no Sora are really the only ones that come to mind), and I’d like to see more. I really like the idea that ‘everyone wins’ especially the conceit they used in Photo Kano, “A moment in which a distinct reality was singled out.”

      Of the 7 ‘routes’ in the show, I think it was probably 2 really good ones, 4 ‘ok’ ones, and 1 disappointing one. I’ll do more of a wrap up next week. :)

      • BlackBriar says:

        I decided to give Photo Kano a try because it was on a whim and you said it was worthy of MetaFap. After all this time, I can say I don’t regret picking it up.

  6. BlackBriar says:

    Photo Kano – 12: It may not be like the others but at least the pairing with Tomoe had some kind of traction. The only thing that bothered me was her near complete lack of self confidence. Some of the others may have been down on their luck but she was near depressing.

    • Highway says:

      I think she definitely was way down on the self-confidence meter, but that also gave her more room to improve, and I think they made a good showing that she did improve throughout. Someone without much self-confidence doesn’t pick that swimsuit, after all.

      I mentioned it in the caption, but I thought it was a nice touch that her mother and father were so supportive of the change in her and of her relationship with Kazuya, even if she’s moving away (there are plenty of longer distance relationships that work fine, that’s for sure). That was really a nice touch.

  7. BlackBriar says:

    The Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat – 11: Well, this shattered any and all preconceptions I had about Tsukiko’s mother. Her demeanor was much like the girl that’s always harassing Youto with her perverted fantasies.

    I think everyone’s memory problems are bound to the effects of the stony changing reality every time. The more wishes being made and then cancelled, the worse the memory becomes. The story is so tangled up now that how this ends is anyone’s guess.

  8. belatkuro says:

    Samurai Bride: “This isn’t even my final form!” – is what basically this episode amounted to. Just…ugh.
    The first season was better, just barely. This whole dark samurai/samurai bride plot thing was just bad. Not to mention the additional master samurais just to complete the set. And don’t get me started on that qi thing with Muneakira just blowing away the curse last episode.
    Oh well, it’s all over now.

    • BlackBriar says:

      In my opinion and by comparison Senran Kagura ended on a higher note than this. Even the relationship between the Master Samurais and Dark Samurais fell along the same line. Samurai Bride had potential but it was unfortunately squandered by mostly filler episodes that shouldn’t have been there.

      • Highway says:

        Senran Kagura definitely did the “Frienemies” story line much better. In the end, Samurai Bride almost didn’t know what to do with the Dark Samurai. They spent the entire series building them up after the first curbstomp fight, and then basically crumpled them up and tossed them aside to bring in some other big bad guy. And all the training and getting better that the rest of Muneakira’s Master Samurai did was tossed out the window as well because they got two attacks in and then were unceremoniously killed off.

        At least in the first series, it set up Gisen as the bad guy throughout a few episodes, and then had the good guy (Juubei) fight the bad guy as the climax.

        • BlackBriar says:

          Since the finale looked open ended, I figure Gisen will be bad again along the way.

          • Highway says:

            In another hundred years when Amakusa can be resurrected again.

            • BlackBriar says:

              She probably has some power to make herself eternally young until then.

  9. Sumairii says:

    It really cracked me up when Juubei whips out her huge sword in bride mode… and then proceeds to shoot it like a gun.

    • skylion says:

      Melee weapon, ranged weapon. Yes. both. With a jetpack….

    • BlackBriar says:

      One of Final Fantasy’s yet to be unveiled gun blades?

  10. […] course, not everything time travel touches has to be life and death. Kind of like in Henneko last season, this was a good excuse to show us loli/shota younger versions of our favorite characters. Shinobu […]
