Natsume Yuujinchou San – 02 Review

Here I thought I was going to be writing a short post but… I could not help myself.

Episode 2 (28)

Summary
(Spoilers ahead)

Ahhh, at this rate I will be starting all my reviews with a happy nostalgic sigh. Afterall, Natusume Yuujinchou just has this ability to make you all warm and fuzzy and make you want to reminisce after each episode.

So this episode focuses on the dynamics of Natusme and Tanuma’s friendship and gives us an insight into how they both handle open themselves up to one another. Also, we get to see more of Reiko’s past, and honestly, I am starting to really like her a lot, I really loved the flashback scene in this episode. You can’t help but feel that she was just a very isolated girl who used what she got to try and become friends with the yokai’s in her own odd way.

xxxHOLIC: Kei 06

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.

Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei Zoku ep 4

Alright kids, the first lesson for today is….


People tend to be drawn away from the main point!

As usual our dear Sensei went on and on about that issue. But I love the examples that they always come up with.
Those just crack me up.

And what would an ep of Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei be without his classic overdramatic scene.

Aliens came and invaded earth.

Shocked!!

And that was the first part of the episode.

The next part was about Itoshiki Sensei making a fuss over not wanting his heart to be read. LOL.

Yes, he was fearful of the student who could tell touching stories which is suppose to mean that he can read peoples heart. \(– o –)/

And the last part of the story?

A pointless story.

I am not kidding, it is really about a pointless story. That was the whole point. lol.

I had fun with this ep of SZSZ I hope that you will have some fun with it too!

Rating? Ep 3 was nicer. ^_^

-ra out!
