After The Steppe Cat, What?

So three series that I have been enjoying immensely are drawing to a close: Hidamari Sketch x Hoshimittsu, for which I held some misgivings that proved quite unwarranted; Sora no Woto, which I was willing to watch on the basis of it being merely K-On Goes to War, but which quite exceeded my expectations, and Kimi ni Todoke, carried over from last season, which transcends not merely genre but time and space and is in fact the pinnacle of all human achievement past and future.

So...

Next season?  We have K-On! 2, which I'll certainly watch; if it's just more moe-blobs making music that's fine with me.  And there's...  There's...  Okay, KimiTodo was a surprise, and there's usually a surprise every season, but I'm just not seeing it at this point.

At least Mythbusters is back on.

Sora No Woto - Fin

I don't really have much to add to THAT's excellent review (not as awesome as their KimiTodo reviews, but still very good).

K-On Goes to War certainly broke free from its assigned stereotype, and though it went a little wobbly now and then (including in this final episode), it's a fine little series and well worth watching.  Three supernatural schoolgirls out of four.*

* May not contain any actual supernatural schoolgirls.

Kimi Ni Todoke - Fin?

Perfect ending.

Five supernatural schoolgirls out of four.

...

Wait, there's more?  YAY!

Kannagi Update

Finally went back and finished watching Kannagi; in fact, it's been so long that I simply started again from the beginning.  Caught up on the final episodes last night while baby-sitting a new server.

It went in a different direction from what I was expecting, and was a bit uneven overall, but still earns three supernatural schoolgirls out of four.  (By comparison, Shana and Haruhi each get 3.5, and Kamichu! gets 5.)

The ending itself wasn't as strong as it might have been - again, uneven - but the very last bit, with Tsugumi, was perfect.

Well worth a watch.  A level 2 teenage angst warning applies.

A Terrible Thought

If Hidamari were to return for a fourth season, then Sae-san would graduate and have to leave the show.

Nooooooo!

Though...  Come to think of it, she was a second-year in season one, and only moved up to third year in season three, so we're safe for now.

If Hidamari were to return for a fourth fifth season, then Sae-san would graduate and have to leave the show.

Nooooooo!

Oh, and: Kimi ni Todoke continues as the heir apparent to Gurren Lagann in terms of pure awesome, and K-On Goes to War Sora no Woto ain't half bad either, as it turns out.

K-On Goes To War, a.k.a. Sora no Woto.

Not bad so far.

Update: I wasn't expecting that (ep 6) but truthfully, it's the only thing in the show so far that survives the refrigerator test.  Of course there'd be something like that.

Update: Odd little show, very uneven, but worth a look.  What is with that clock, though?

Update: Only two episodes left to go?  That might work out just right.

Update: I haven't found the original that they modeled the clock on, but:

Yeah, it's real.  Yeesh, the places people choose to live.

Kimi Ni Todoskwee

It's made of aww and winsome.

Update: One of the great things about being caught up with Kimi ni Todoke is that I can also catch up on That's absurdly awesome episode-by-episode reviews.  DO NOT READ BEFORE WATCHING RELEVANT EPISODES.  If you have watched relevant episodes, start here.  If you have not watched relevant episodes, watch relevant episodes, then start here.  The fact that they refer to SPOILER as Vichy-tan is perfection.
