But seriously, I love this series.
Comedy in its purest form. I have to admit, Seo’s date with Hirotaka and Nozaki’s “casting” in the play were my favorites. Definitely one of the best comedies this season.
While I hate characters that act like a sore thumb among the group, I have to say that Machi’s reasons for doing so are logically sound, and I can’t help but admire how the character was made. She’s simply the lone wolf. People misunderstand her actions and intentions which ironically, what she did with her sister (must’ve run in the family).
And it’s actually pleasing to watch how she changed her personality once she realized she was accepted in the group. That’s… quite a human reaction. I mean, I never expected her to suddenly promote Yosakoi to the guests and members of the inn after she started being accepted and practicing with all of them. I don’t see it as a fraud/hypocritical personality but rather, the kind of attitude that you get when someone starts to warm up to you. Tsunderes are awesome, hard-working ones, more so.
And there’s another great series that departed this season. They say that Zwei was long but I will agree with most claims that they did a good move in cutting the entire arc. One, introducing Kuro and Bazett, and the other, the Eighth card.
And this series is still enjoyable. Beautiful fight choreography aside, the addition of Kuro and the threat of Bazett is a good way to stir things up. It leaves me wanting to see how they would resolve things especially with the involvement of the Eighth card. Add in the fact that they only have 3 cards in their possession now, I wonder how they plan on facing the challenges ahead.
And that wraps it up for this week. Most one-cour shows are left with two episodes before this season ends and I’m looking forward to it. Especially Tokyo Ghoul, Zankyou no Terror and Aldnoah. And Haikyuu is also ending. I do hope it would have a second season. I really love how they did that manga adaptation.
