GOSICK First Impression: Holmes as a Loli?

So, the winter anime season has started off last week and although I was hyped up to watch the second season of Kimi ni Todoke, the ‘first’ episode for the second season was called to be a recap. I did not have any other anime in mind to watch besides KimiTodo. So, after looking through the Winter 2011 chart provided by cowboybibimbop, GOSICK was one of the very few that got me interested in watching.

Black★Rock Shooter Love! ♥

Apologies folks for the lack of posts for the past… *checks date of last post* month. Goodness. That has really been a while since I last posted. Well this isn’t much of a new post but hopefully, I’ll get off my lazy ass and start a few articles that I’ve been meaning to start for a while.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Season 2: xy,zmnth Endless Eight

I was supposed to do a post about episode sev– the next cycle of Endless Eight too… but what the heck — I’m still working on CANAAN and NEEDLESS posts for Hyper Parfait. I also didn’t see anything eye-catching this time around either. It’s definitely skip material. Especially for those who are loathing this arc to pieces.

Here’s a little filler I found somewhere on the internet for you folks to enjoy instead ^_^

Edit: Just finished wa– listening to Season 2 episode 8… no change here. Skip material too. I just noticed that in the first scene — the baseball game was not on the television anymore… I wonder if the bg artist got tired of drawing it for several times for several episodes… every frame had to be drawn, right?

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Season 2: 15,521st Endless Eight

Hello minna! It is yet again another update about The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya — and if you are tired of the same old Endless Eight episode — then I suggest you should skip this because there’s not much progress. There is, however, a little easter egg in this episode — short but I still like it.
As you have noticed, I’m not as hostile as I was in the previous entries with Endless Eight. Yes, KyoAni’s trolling us. That’s for sure, but after reading some other blogs defending the Endless Eight arc, I do agree with what they say. As some of the bloggers have said: KyoAni’s move in trolling the fans who don’t notice much subtlety (including myself) causes us to talk, talk and talk about Haruhi — which, of course garners free publicity for the series. I can attest to that since my Haruhi posts over at TanTango are the most popular ones, compared to my figure posts. Another is: the repeating episodes somehow make viewers feel sympathetic to what Yuki feels. Remember, after the loop has been revealed to Kyon, he wonders how Yuki could actually stand it — we viewers — who more or less remember that Endless Eight has been looping — would actually know what Yuki is experiencing.
That set aside though, I thought that the previous episode’s focus on the plane in the sky and the clouds are some sort of hint, but the episode seemed to have proved me wrong because there is still no progress in this episode. Now I feel that the hypothesis that endless eight would have eight iterations before the arc comes to a close is coming true, since we are on the 5th iteration now.
This episode’s featured items are: Kyon’s cellphone, butterflies, clocks/watches and PET bottles.
In this episode, the public pool scenario has caught my attention because: 1)Itsuki looks very gay in his swimming trunks, but also oddly reminds me that Lelouch wears black briefs and 2) There’s an Easter egg in this scenario: K-On!’s Azu-nyan and Ui-chan can be seen with Haruhi — funny thing is, they’re both sunburned.
Aside from that, there are not much points of interest to be seen. I liked the air of this episode better than the GLOOM that is felt in the last episode though.

Yes, it's the 15,521st summer

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Season 2: 15,513th Endless Eight

I think KyoAni's somewhat constipated because they couldn't get any good storyline out

Just finished the 5th episode of the second season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and if you are like me who is getting frustrated with all the Endlessness — then I suggest you should stop torrenting your copy — or maybe at least just don’t anticipate that anything additional will be added to the episode.
