Episode Focus: Gamers! 11, Gamers and Next Stage

The penultimate episode of Gamers! is thoroughly in the process of rapping things up. What’s best about this show though is that even though things are starting to work out for most of the characters, it still doesn’t take itself seriously.

 

As a final attempt to confirm that no one is cheating, Tasuku and Karen agree to organise a double date with Aguri and Keita. Meanwhile, Konoha eavesdropping gets Chiaki in on the day and the episode is all set to go.

Episode Focus: Tsuki ga Kirei 11, An Encouragement of Learning

When living with your parents it can often be difficult to understand why the make some of the decisions that they do. What Tsuki ga Kirei shows well in episode 11 is that they usually have a good reason for doing so, and even after making decisions initially, they’re flexible enough to adapt when it’s in the best interest of their children.

Last week, we expected that Kotarou’s parents, particularly his mother, wouldn’t take well to his decision to go a school two hours away in order to follow a girl. It wasn’t surprising then to see that when Kotarou announced his school of choice at a parent meeting with his teacher, his mother wasn’t best pleased.

Charlotte Episode 11: Charlotte

In the past few weeks Charlotte has become this season’s anime to watch. What started off as a nostalgic Angel Beats! throwback has grown into a twist filled, action packed, feels heavy train ride into the trials and tribulations of Yuu Otasaka and those around him.

After last week’s episode it was hard to tell where the show was going with it’s final three episodes. The show had seemingly resolved what could have easily been a problem for the whole show. But this is Jun Maeda. So things won’t stop happening until the end of the thirteenth episode.

Very few things in anime are completely pointless.

The episode opens by skipping the opening and reintroducing Yuu (again) and Mayumi to their older brother Shunsuke. For the first time in the show Yuu actually makes the decision to reflect on the scenario he has found himself in as well as what he has just been through. Compared to episode 7, Yuu shows some independence and maturity, while inwardly thinking of Nao, showing again the effect she has had on him as a person.

Seraph of the End, episode 11: Reunion of Childhood Friends

At the end of the last episode the inevitable happened, Yu and Mika met each other again. Perhaps unconventionally so in as much as Yu stabs a cursed gear through Mika’s chest. That left us all waiting eagerly to the resolution in this weeks episode.

Touching, shame they realised after Yu stabbed Mika.

What becomes clear from this episode are two things: firstly, Mika sees his relationship with Yu as somewhere on a fine line between brothers and lovers and, potentially more importantly, Yu has something else to worry about that may be even worse than his own demon, Ashuramru.

This is another high intensity episode as the vampires led by Ferid and Crawley continue the fight against the human army.

Absolute Duo Episode 11: Killing Game

I wanted to write a review of the latest episode of Absolute Duo, as I’ve been trying to catch up to Funimation’s Broadcast Dub (which as a concept, is a fantastic idea by the way). Putting myself in that position however has left me disappointed, as this isn’t an episode that nails the combination of decent plot and ecchi charm as earlier episodes of the show did. But here I am, so what can I do.

As the penultimate episode of the show we are getting down to the crux point of plot this time around. Miyabi has reappeared having accepted a demonising type power from the Rebels. Unfortunately for our group the trade off is that she wants to kill them all- including Tooru, who she claims to love. After losing the extra guards for the conference, our heroes are forced to fend her off before being sent away by Tomoe, who insists she can get through to her because of their duo connection. Ringing out the clichés for all they’re worth at this stage it seems.

She's not looking particularly friendly right now.

Tooru and Julie go on to fight K. Fitting with the main motivation of the show up to this point the battle sees Tooru ending up in distress because Julie is hurt in the fight. Using the serum he received in the previous episode, he levels up his blaze to level 4 becoming a seemingly indestructible human shield before defeating K with his mighty fist. What was that I was saying about clichés?
