This episode is my favorite of the series so far. There’s so much going on between the characters, and the problems aren’t resolved by simply paying some jazz together. I feel like this episode was everything I’d been expecting out of Sakamichi but not quite getting. Yippee!
Sakamichi 05 – The Power of Music
Okay, okay, okay. I have a confession to make.
Sakamichi is starting to lose some of its luster for me.
Sankarea 06 – Zombie Girlfriends Aren’t All Fun and Games
Alright, I’m back in action with this latest episode of Sankarea! In this review, I’m skipping the summary/synopsis and I’m just going to give the highlights of what I loved most… And then…
The all important issue: fan-service.
Read on to see what I have to say about the increased amount of boobs, cleavage, pants-less-ness, and nakedness in sankarea!
Episode 05 – Putting it All in Context
So, this review is a week behind due to my exams. However, I had so much to say about this and the most recent episode, it was only reasonable to split it up into two separate reviews. There’s no summary here, just some of my thoughts about the best aspects of the episode – namely the subtly demonstrated dichotomy between living/dead that makes this series such an awesome watch.
Well, I took a little break to do exams, and I surely wasn’t expecting to come back and find that such massive developments had happened in the Sakamichi-verse while I was gone! For now I’m just going to touch on the highlights of Episodes 03 and 04, and I’ll be back to regular reviewing for Episode 05.
And, just in case you were wondering, I got straight A’s!
Sankarea 04 – Just a “Normal” Girl
In light of the fact that I’ve got at least 349,771 final exams to take in the next 7 days, I’m going to do something a little different for this week’s review. I’m going to focus on only one teeny-tiny little scene and compare the animated version to the manga.
It’s time for the Obligatory AniBlog Tourney Post!
Otakuness is scheduled to compete starting at 20:00 GMT Tuesday April 24th, and the polls will be open for 48 hours. If you do not see Otakuness on the site, do not fret for that just means that the poll isn’t open yet. So, just to make sure that everyone gets the time zone stuff right, here is a handy-dandy link to a time zone conversion website.
Continue reading for some info about Otakuness and a little of the sentimental stuff (and reasons to vote for us) that you might expect from an Obligatory AniBlog Tourney Post…
Sankarea 03 – Zombie Girls Rule
Ah yes, it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. And there’s plenty of blood and guts to go around.
Sakamichi no Apollon 02 – Cockblocking?
Altogether another fantastic episode with a superior first half, but I have some doubts about brining religion into a series that already has such a full plate. Also, I couldn’t manage to figure out what’s going on in this love triangle – who likes who, exactly?
