聖剣の刀鍛冶 / Seiken no Blacksmith Episode 10 —
Hm. This anime tries to be so deep and touching… and utterly fails at it. Eh, at least the animation is nice. I’d enjoy it if I had a little less intelligence.
I have so many complaints about this anime, it would be longer than all four of my Mists of Avalon essays.
The cheerful happy ending totally ruined the dramatic moment that they finally kind of achieved by the end of the episode. AA. [7/10]
とある科学の超電磁砲 / To Aru Kagaku no Railgun Episode 11 —
She seems to have a reason for designing Level Upper — for some reason, her request to run a certain simulation on Tree Diagram, Acadamy City’s super-mega-ultracomputer, was rejected, and somehow it was important enough to send 10,000 people into a coma for a few months, cause them to go insane and cause enough property damage to probably pay for a new supercomputer, and probably get her in jail or killed.
God, why must Railgun be so much better than all the other animes this season. Okay, best animation. Best characters. I won’t give it best music, but waaaaaaay far beyond best plot. It’s like, ten thousand times the plot of all other Fall 2009 animes combined.
1) What the ***, Touma didn’t show up after all. Meaning I’m going to have to learn Japanese and read the book. 2) Kiyama-sensei’s past… it’s so sweet, and the animation, timing, and phrasing of narration is all so perfect. 3) Surprisingly, Misaka beat Kiyama-sensei. 4) WHAT THE HELL WITH THE CLIFFHANGER… now I’ll be thinking about this every day for seven more days. Uuuuu. SS+. [10.5/10]
Touma better show up to save the day next week.
