Nodame Cantabile: Finale
11! the end. (of the tv episodes) Chiaki's thoughts were funny as Nodame inadvertently insults him, rejects him and sorta breaks up with him. Very nice ending. ~8/10 rating
~ smooth transition from the previous season with the same likable characters progressing in their lives. The animation was the same mediocre, but not horrible production. Nodame and Chiaki are still my favorite anime couple, since they compliment each other so well and humorously. Letter Bee
25! the end (of this season). What a terrible manga-to-anime production. The last 15 minutes were more interesting than the previous 24 episodes, and the point was only to set-up the 2nd season. We learn that Gauche became a Marauder named Noir working for Reverse, an anti-gov't org. He shoots Lag and leaves him...credits roll. ~6/10 rating
~ for an anime with wasted potential. The first couple episodes set up something unique (mailman anime!) with twisted (sometimes perverted) humor, but the half-arsed writers threw in so many fillers that you forget all the interestingness. It seems like they are saving the meat of the original manga story for the next season.Darker the Black
S2 OVA 2! continues Hei and Yin's run, but now with more Yin craziness and a touch darker. It also had more fanservice...for the guys. The detail to the setting was really nice..HK?Durarara
12! Felt like Celty, Mikado, and Harima & Seiji all had their tentative resolutions. Izaya keeps pulling strings though. Becoming a fan of Celty and the doctor, but don't see it lasting.Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood
50! Mustang and his men/women continue their coup, while Ed and the others try to reach the Escaflowne-esque bearded bad guy. Good stuff. Wish the series had some hour long episodes.
