Date A Live
Long time no see, dear readers, if anyone remembers who I am or how I usually write. If not, hello there, I’m bringing you a random review and I hope to be back to covering weekly shows starting this Spring.
This show isn’t really a show I would normally review, but since there was something I decided to watch and actually got positively surprised with, this is what I’m bringing here this time.
The Quiet Life
So here’s the peace and quiet. The title of the episode is once again appropriate for what’s happening. Everything has settled down now and all of our characters are getting on with their quiet lives! Things have changed for them, of course, but there are no more aliens and this peaceful tone is very enjoyable to me.
Flamenco in Space
Here it is, the episode we’ve been waiting for after the one week break. We’ve been waiting to see Samurai Flamenco in space and… that is exactly what we were given. ‘Flamenco in Space’ is an extremely appropriate title for this episode, however, this was not the space episode I was imagining. Fortunately, I wouldn’t say that’s a bad thing at all!
Ultimate Prime Minister
Another great episode shows itself and I loved it. It was exciting and intense. Those two words alone describe this episode perfectly. It’s certainly not without its faults, as this is Samurai Flamenco we’re talking about here, but this is easily one of the best episodes of the entire series and I urge you to watch it this instant if you haven’t done so already.
“New World”? … Well, this episode was certainly anything but “new”: It’s pretty much the same recipe that White Fox seem to follow for all of these Super Sonico episodes and it’s becoming rather repetitive if anything. I want something to rant or moan about or some kind of hope to cling onto that might make me actually believe this anime has potential, and quite frankly, White Fox are denying me of my wishes. Sonico is supposed to have a busy and exciting life, but I’m really thinking otherwise now.
So I have to assume our disappointment with the new OP animation was heard, because we’ve just been given a new one. On the plus side, it doesn’t recycle scenes from earlier episodes, but there’s not much to it and it’s somewhat plain. I think I prefer it to the version we just had, although this one doesn’t do the episode any nice justice, and it was a good episode!
Leave it to Samurai Flamenco to surprise me, and what a surprise it was! I can hardly believe what’s going on now, and part of me actually doesn’t believe it. I’m incredibly hyped for the next episode and I’m desperately hoping this show can keep the momentum going strong.
