Gosick – 01

Episode 1 – The Black Reaper Finds a Golden Fairy

Summary
(some spoilers ahead)

The first thing I want to say is that the OP is so pretty, (though I know I wont be able to watch the anime if it was in that style throughout the whole way) the OP art is just beautiful.

So the first thing we find out in this episode is why Kazuya is in this elite school meant for aristocrats. And because of his black hair and eyes, he is known as the kuro shinigami. But we soon find out that the nickname he had acquired is related to a ghost story. At the suggestion of a teacher, Kazuya goes to the library where he begins to read up on ghost stories and this is where he meets a doll like girl called Victorique.

Detective Conan – Clash of Red and Black Arc

After 11 years of Detective Conan I am pretty sure that many are tired of watching it or tired of waiting for some sort of progress in the plot of the show.

And finally a major move forward in the plot, the ‘Clash of Red and Black’ arc. This arc spans across 13 episodes (ep 491-504). Within the arc we are showed 2 murder cases with the constant presence of Hondou Eisuke and the participation of the FBI. Huge revelations, deaths, as well as more of the ‘organization’, it sure is a pretty exciting arc. Though as far as exciting action scenes goes, this was nothing big or great, but don’t forget that this is a kids show and it is not very ‘detective conan-like’ if it was filled with too much action scene.

Episode 6 – Peace-The Flower
(post contains spoilers}

This episode mainly focuses on the game Mahjong played between Watanuki, Doumeki, Yuko, and Mokona.
Though it may have seemed to be a relatively filler episode at first, we find out later that the reason behind why they played Mahjong was because of the Cherry Blossom spirit that we encountered in the previous episode. Read the rest of this entry

xxxHOLIC: Kei – 04

Episode 4 – Buying Dreams

In this episode, dreams and reality mix together to form a surreal feeling.
Which parts of what you see are just dreams and which part is actually happening?
Watanuki is suddenly experiencing dreams in the middle of the road without even knowing that he had fallen asleep.
The weirdest of all is that the dream was a mixture of Himawari’s dream and Doumeki’s dream.
And of course, it is Yuuko (and Doumeki’s grandpa) to the rescue!
Trading dreams, buying dreams, having dreams, and reality.
An alternate plane, balloons filled with dreams, strange creatures who collect the balloons, magical arrows and much more.
This is one weird episode that is true to the custom of the mystery filled xxxHOLIC series.

xxxHOLIC: Kei – 03

Episode 3 – Half

This episode is the final ep in this 3-ep arc.

Summary: Watanuki is off saving the Zashiki-Warashi.

This episode mainly revolves around Watanuki and his lack of understanding of certain things.
He does not fully grasp the fact that his existence is important to some people.

While this might have been an episode about the eye, it is at the same time not.
