Sleepy Hollow is back after a ridiculous and awesome first season, and it’s brought with it the same sense of silly fun.
Zankyou no Terror‘s ending is predictable, but that doesn’t mean it’s not effective. While all of the plot points play out exactly as I expect, the impact they leave is raw and devastating. Zankyou no Terror isn’t the game changing anime I wanted it to be, but it manages to invoke strong feelings with it’s sympathetic characters and melancholy tone.
This week’s Sailor Moon Crystal takes what is generally a pretty tightly written chapter and messes around with it until it no longer makes much sense. While it doesn’t completely screw up the narrative, it does make for a pretty jarring episode full of what come off as strange occurrences.
Free! has come to what is likely a permanent end. While last summer’s Iwatobi Swim Club left us with the promise of more, Eternal Summer’s end card seems distinctly final. While I would never object to more swimming shenanigans, I think Free! found a good place to stop.
So. Gotham is a thing. A big, messy, anachronistic, cliched thing. With laughable dialogue, simplistic characterization, and a never-ending parade of winks and nods, Gotham is going to have to work very hard to be as entertaining as it wants to be.
With one episode left, Zankyou no Terror sets the stage for the explosive finale.
This week’s episode of Free! is the kind of heartwarming, cute episode I’ve been hoping for.
This week’s Zankyou no Terror wraps up a huge chunk of the mystery while also delivering a heartfelt and dramatic change in the relationships between Nine, Twelve, and Lisa. It’s a return to form after the less fitting tone of the airport arc, and all that’s left is the thrilling conclusion.
This week’s Free! gave me everything I wanted for this show from the beginning of the season.
I won’t lie. I watched the Teen Wolf finale. But I didn’t really retain anything from the Teen Wolf finale.
