Summer ’09 Anime: Last Call

Oh god, I’ve been letting Expo Expo dust over. D:  All the series that aren’t continuing on into the fall season are over now,  and I think Summer ’09 was one of the better seasons for a large quantity of quality shows, which is in stark contrast with the “meh”-ness of the current fall shows.  Spoilers ahead obviously…

Aoi Hana – Episode 10

h

Oh snap, crackle and pop.  All this time I’ve been worried that Fumi would have a usual “Fumi-chan’s so quick to cry” moment and run back into Sugimoto’s arms the second she decided to come back.  Instead she gave Sugimoto an emotional ass-whooping that couldn’t have sliced deeper.  You could tell that Sugimoto never expected Fumi to reject her, since Fumi’s generally a passive person.  This almost made me feel sorry for Sugimoto, but that’s what happens when you take someone for granted.  I wouldn’t be against them getting back together as long as Sugimoto works her ass off to make it up to Fumi.


Anime Update: Rough Draft Style

Oh man, if there’s one thing I’ll miss about living on campus it’s having reliable internet access.  Right now my housemates and I are trying to get it up and properly functioning, so I’ll make this quick before my wireless decides to cut out again.  This will also let me get in a couple words on some series that I don’t make constant posts about.

Umi Monogatari – Episode 6

ur6

Wow, my Sailor Moon comparison just got even better.  Urin’s fed up with the “selfishness” of the Sky Beings and Marin, so she allows Sedna’s power to overtake her.  Kanon’s ring transforms into a butterfly tattoo on Urin’s finger and she basically turns into a snippy, zombie-eyed brat who can suck the evil power from Sedna’s underlings.  This is totally like Chibi-Usa/Rini’s situation where she let herself get used by Wiseman.  I’ll hardly be surprised if Urin transforms into an older version of herself, a la Black Lady.  Anyhow, Urin’s a complete hypocrite for complaining about the selfishness of humans.  There’s not too many things more selfish than expecting your sister to only pay attention to you forever.  This same situation would have happened even without Kanon around, such as if Marin would ever get married or something.
