Today is one of my ‘busiest’ day in my anime-watching history because today alone there were 4 new anime episode for spring anime that I closely followed. They are Sankarea, Natsuiro Kiseki, Acchi Kocchi and Sengoku Collection, and they have closed their curtains today (with exception of Sengoku Collection of course). I have a mixed feeling for them and here I’m going to write some reviews as well as what I felt about each show now that they are over.
In the latest episode of Sankarea there was nothing much happened but don’t let the first 20 minutes fool you, which means you might as well have to watch it till the very end. Rea decided to return to school and she already take her belongings from her house while Furuya will have to try his best to preserve her body. On the other hand Ranko and Rea have ‘vowed’ to become a rival in getting Furuya but in the end of the episode Rea suddenly bite Furuya near his lips and suck his blood like a vampire!No matter how I see it the last scene in this last episode gave me a hint that a second season is possible (which I hope they better do it or I’ll hate them forever!). I know the manga is still ongoing and the anime makers might not get the green light to make a plot twist like the one we saw in Tasogare Otome x Amnesia but I want to see what blood has to do with this zombie. Human blood might be the last ingredient to complete the resurrection potion or in other words, the only way to keep Rea ‘alive’!
Natsuiro Kiseki was another anime I never missed that has just came to an end. It was a so-so, wasn’t that good if I have to say and might be ‘unwatchable’ too at times because moe is not my thing. However I love to see the miracles that happened throughout this show and I have to admit that there were times I feel moved when I saw those girls dealing with the ‘miracles’ and how doing things together made them becoming closer than ever.
No, Sengoku Collection has not ended yet and there probably still have another one or two episodes remaining. In this episode I was glad to see Nobunaga again where she was on-screen most of the time, together with a random oppailicious ‘stray’ girls named Ageha. As you might already know Nobunaga is still on her search for another ‘warlords’ to collect the “secret treasures” and you know what, she got another one this time but the way it came to her was a bit funny to me.So there was this “assassin” ninja girl (Zenjibo) from the Sengoku era hired by the other “warlord” (Yoshimoto) to assassinate Nobunaga. Although she was the “always hit” assassin, turned out that killing Nobunaga was not that easy, not because she was not good but because luck was always with Nobunaga (or should I say it was the luck she had by being with Ageha). And Ageha happened to be the one who ‘saved’ Zenjibo too when she first arrived in this era, making her a little reluctant to execute the task assigned to her.
Ageha on the other hand is probably a girl from a certain remote village who is too foreign to the city, and she’s probably been living a ‘homeless’ life until she bumped into Nobunaga. Quickly they became quite close to each other and somehow Ageha won a vacation package from a raffle. Right before departure to the vacation site Nobunaga was spotted by Zenjibo and she followed them to their destination.After repeated failed attempts to kill Nobunaga, Zenjibo finally showed herself in front of them (more like she did that because she was jealous of the ‘accident’ as shown above). Nobunaga however took that opportunity to ‘steal’ her secret treasure though I don’t know how many of them she had collected so far (I’ve stopped counting them anyway). After that Nobunaga left Ageha and she ‘entrusted’ her to Zenjibo because she thinks they are better together. I’m not sure how many more episodes left for this show and I don’t bother to check the website either because I don’t mind if it still have another 13 episodes left. Another anime that has just ended is Acchi Kocchi, a cute kitteh anime I never missed too but never even once wrote a review about. Well there wasn’t any story/plot to write a review about to begin with but it was fun to watch, probably because I love cats Let’s hope for the wonderful summer anime as well.
