Durarara!! Episode 6 – Dollars, yo!

Probably the best scene of the episode. Happy Lunar New Year to you all (and Valentine’s Day but screw that commercial holiday! …I’m not bitter… not at all. >.>). This episode clears up a lot of the mysteries present in the previous episodes. We get a glimpse of who the Dollars are, who the hell […]

Durarara!! Episode 5 – Monsters, Aliens and Gangs

This week’s narrator is magnificent Kida-kun himself. As Mikado is getting more curious about the Dollars, Kida becomes more and more worried that Mikado will fall to the darkness of the city. Kida also crosses a few punks who claim to be from a colors gang called the Yellow Scarves.

Durarara!! Episode 4 – Dullalalahan

I’m beginning to think that Durarara!! might be following a specific pattern with these episodes. It seems that they’re alternating between episodes where Mikado is the main focus and episodes where they focus on a different character as well as their background. Episode 2 was focused on a minor character, the girl who was kidnapped […]

Durarara!! Episode 3 – Showdown in Ikebukuro

An episode where a lot of things happen but nothing really happens at all. I’m feeling quite torn with my impressions of this episode. I was bored with the first half of it with all the minor things that happen that do not seem to have much relevance to anything. But, the second half was […]

Kannagi Episode 12 + 13 END – Let's wrap this one up.

Or in Jin’s case, unwrap. Ufufu… So the series is finally over (for this season anyway) and it’s been a heck of a ride. We’ve been overloaded with fun and humor for a good portion of the series, but when things finally got down to it, they hit us hard with a bunch of drama […]

Kannagi Episode 11 – Why so serious?

Are they supposed to be scared or excited? Looks like they’ve decided to cut down on the comedy and get on with the story since we’re coming up on the end of the season. The transition was a bit rough, but it was probably necessary given the short amount of time left. Regardless, we’re finally […]

Kannagi Episode 10 – Are we still in the right show?

Probably what most people thought when the episode first started. Assuming they’ve watched Lucky Star of course. This week’s Kannagi treats us to a delightful karaoke episode starring the “all-star” cast, as Akiba would say. The episode starts off very similar to the karaoke endings of Lucky Star, however that’s not all that’s not all […]
