Also, SUPER GOD MECHS FOR EVERYONE!!!! Yoko and Nia included. Tengen Toppa Enkiduglu or whatever was the best, but Tengen Toppa Lazengann was also pretty awesome, as well as TT W Yoko Tank.

I still think Yoko at least hooks up with someone again. Screw y'all and yo kiss o' death.

Since I recently finished watching it, my thoughts:

As cool as epilogue arcs are, I prefer the ending of the first season(if you call it that, when they beat the Spiral King). It had a perfect resolution, not depressing as all hell as the finale, epic battles aside.

What really got me about that ending was how Simon treated himself after kinda saving the entire universe and losing his wife and all that. Becoming a lone wanderer was not the path I expected this character to take. He had everything, and now he's got next to nothing. And he's totally happy and okay with that.

So apparently I was informed of something that I haven't noticed for a while, but you know how Precure's have declarations (basically their little catch phrase). Everyone has a declaration in Doki Doki Precure, but only Cure Heart actually says her the entire time. Everyone else hasn't bothered to say it.

Rikka (when called into action as "Cure Diamond") - http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/pictures/l/...OGDS-91614.jpg
("I'll be the one to cool your rage!")

Alice (when called into action as "Cure Rosetta") - http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/pictures/l/...OGDS-91613.jpg
("Love makes the world go 'round.") - Actually, I like the longer version better which she also adds "Now, come let me nurture the love in your heart!"

Makoto (when called into action as "Cure Sword") - http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/pictures/l/...OGDS-91612.jpg
("I'll cut down your ambitions with the blade of love!")

The Declarations and products shown above states that they know they have declarations, and is more evidence for the bias of Cure Heart.

Goddamn, do they really need to cram in over 9 chapters? Why cut out the parts which helps to conclude how Katsuragi determine who are the candidates?

I should have expected this when they blatantly show off who are the candidates in the OP which reflected in this episode since manglobe is cutting out the non-candidates segment.

Wasn't able to post episode-by-episode impressions. Couldn't put it down. I'm starting to realize that I'm a sucker for anime about competitive sports and, when combined with adorableness, there's no stopping this marathon train. These last few episodes were a lot of fun! Tons of Tankery, tons of friendship. There were some really awesome strategies being used, like how they took down that Maus or how they used a fast tank to disrupt the enemy's formation. The matches always came down to the wire and they got pretty suspenseful. Ending was sweet but now I'm sad it's over.

I always hate watching those kinds of OVAs after I finish romcom animes. Since they pretty much are just "filler" and don't expand on what happens after the "happy ending" they kind of feel really SHMEH to watch after finishing the show.

Sailor Moon 11

Sounds like it's calling for me! So yeah, Rei and Usagi are going at each other since they don't mix too well, then again, I'm surprised Ami can, but she's like an angel of brans or something.

I'm not sure if he's making a whorehouse or creating Legion. But yeah, they keep fighting while Ami decides to check on the Candy house. Rei's sensing abilities keep pissing Usagi off (jealous that you lack a skill?) They even fight over a kid to ride a mechanical bull.

I bet that kid is scared of women for life. So lets ride on a mini train, where SMUG DUDE ALSO IS! ALSO FINALLY! REI THINKS SMUG DUDE ACTUALLY LOOKS SIMILAR TO TUXEDO MASK! SOMEONE PAYS ATTENTION! So it WAS A TRAP! SURPRISE! And Ami's out of it. And then Illusions and fantasies happened, and as we see above, Tuxedo Mask is styling and profiling. Now then.... I know that they wear leotards, but I wasn't expecting this (nsfw). Even has a little butt dot on it. How lewd Rei. No making up at the end, but Rei has quite the inventory.

I enjoyed PhotoKano somewhat. After the first couple of episodes. Just that it did suffer a bit from trying to force almost all the stories into single episodes rather than 2-4 episode arcs like Amagami. Maybe this just shows how desparate I am for more Amagami.

I don't really find much anime I really want to see nowadays, but a friend wanted me to see this, as it applied to both of us. I genuinely enjoyed it. The protagonist is not typical, and best of all, the show hits on a lot of thought processes people with social anxiety, like myself, go through to a tee. I hate to say it, but the show wasn't even exaggerating that much.

Le Chevalier D'Eon 16

So after last episode's weird and gruesome finish, we're down a man. Hopefully only temporarily but after that number Durand did to his own arm, he may never be back at full strength again. Precarious situation. But you've only got one avenue: the queen of england knows shit about poets. Poets took your dude. You gotta go after the queen I bet.

Oh...fuck. He's lost his arm...goddammit. And...like I thought Durand might be at the beginning, again return my suspicions of him turning, heh, "redcoat". Get it?!

And with that handshake...the two nations move towards a false war! oh boy

now that's a twist! But now we also know just who the Count of Saint-Germain really is. Him, Dashwood, and Max are the final bosses it looks like.

I think I called it that D'Eon is going to come close lose himself, just as Queen Mary and her sister actually did, but I don't think he actually will become like her.

Or we might have a revolt even within the Revolutionary Brethren? Interesting.

AAWWW SNAP! Dem implications. Jadeite just keeps having a hard time with all the women. Rei rejects Usagi and takes Ami instead on the love boat, all aboard the yur---

Oh.

...anyway, laughed my ass off when Sailor Moon threw her friends under a bus when she asked why they only stole energy from lovers.

Have to say though, I appreciate the henshin sequences, they don't take forever, I can bother to watch these when it doesn't feel like a giant time sink just to do less violence... not like there's much violence anyway.
