Un-Go 0! ah ha, I knew the backstory would be interesting despite how ho-hum the actual series had been. Shinjurou was an orphan who grew up to be a good competitive swimmer (who knew?). He goes off into the world trying to help people; showing movies to children in war-torn areas. He meets a group of singers who are also trying to make a difference on the battlefield. Various things happen and Shinjurou makes an agreement with a demon, In-ga. All the other characters and Bettenou are also introduced in this episode which is both about where Shinjurou came from and his first 'case'. While the unusual story and characters weren't the best in the tv series, this flashback episode ties it all together rather nicely. ~8/10 rating~
Fate/Zero S2 5! Vampire zombies! Kiritsugu's past was sad, but I'm not quite teary-eyed...Zombies make me laugh. You can see how he takes after his father who pretty much had the same cold approach to his research as Kiritsugu has towards his goals.
Hunter x Hunter 2012 30! Gon gets beat up. Kurapika meets a random guy who will teach him Nen. The encounter was weirdly out-of-the-blue.
Sakamichi no Apollon 4! Christmas gig time. Kaoru learns more about his fanfic partner. The love rectangle gets another player; predictably Yurika likes Jun. Does Junichi really sing like Sinatra?
Tsuritama 4! More fishing. The series is generally pleasant to watch because of the bright colors and friendly episodic lessons. Hope that there is a jump in the story...fishing really isn't that interesting.
Jormungand 4! The Orchestra assassin duo wasn't very interesting.
Toaru Hikuushi e no Tsuioku anime movie! Quick review. Brilliant, but lower-class pilot flies a princess across dangerous air. They become friends. Princess becomes stronger. blah blah. Nice air battles, but little substance. ~6/10 rating~
