First things first. Anzu is going to be OK. I know a lot of you Hinabros were concerned for her safety, living in the park with her homeless new-friends. Milk Trucku found her a nice family. Poor kid took it hard, but her smile was protected. 11/10 feels episode, with Hina also getting a heart warming surprise that she has no idea how to react to. /oursperg/
Chi-chan meanwhile headlined a jobber episode of WIXOSS. I’m not even mad that you don’t make Best Girl Batoru every week. Jobbers have every right to play WIXOSS with their friends.
Batoru mashups are top fun, but when it’s only jobbers and not Layla smashing it I am left a little uninspired. The Carnival-Kiyoi Batoru where Blue Jobber was saved by an ass-pull certainly deserved no music, but I guess that’s what you get on a Jobber episode. I tacked the best 30 seconds of Carnival-Kiyoi onto the end of the Chi-chan Jobber reel. GOMENASAI Joe Esposito.
Friday night peak anime also included another solid ep of Comic Girls, and I took a crack at the WIXOSS back catalogue now that Crunchy has Selector back on the menu. I was surprised by how much more I liked the first two episodes of Conflated than the first two episodes of Selector though, which is as far as I got this sitting.
I don’t want to trash Mari Okada by saying JC Staff are doing a better job with her WIXOSS Universe than she did without also saying something nice about her. Her Peeping Analyse material that JC made episode 2 of Conflated out of was THE SHIT, and I mostly enjoyed her anime adaptation of Pet Girl of Sakurasou. GOMENASAI Mari Okada.
