Eh well I guess I didn’t have that much high expectations for the show so I’m not surprised this is the ending. I heard the manga has less fanservice and more koi so I might check that out in the near future. I guess in situations like this I wish they’d do an anime original ending and actually have Junpei confess to Kaede or whatever instead of getting cockblocked for the 12th time. Maybe this is a sign that there might be a season 2? Although honestly after Haruka season 2 I’m afraid what a season 2 of this show would end up like.
Angelic Layer is a shounen fighting series, except that it has a girl as the main character (are there any other series other than this and Soul Eater with one?), and everyone fights with their custom Pokemans. While I’ve felt that Rurouni Kenshin kinda killed the whole shounen fighting series genre for me (in that I don’t expect to see anything as good as it), Angelic Layer felt like a pretty good baseline standard to compare other series to. If they’re worse than Angelic Layer, they’re bad. If they’re better, they’re good. I like to keep my baselines fairly high (my average score on MAL is 2.5 points lower than average), which goes to say that Angelic Layer was a fairly strong show.
I admit it’s been ages since I really cared about Soul Eater. I loved the anime & manga at first but I guess waiting for a chapter per month kinda kills interest especially when chapters often don’t feel like a continuation of each other. Sometimes I’ll read a new chapter and be like “wtf was going on again?” However I did lol at this scene:
Does this mean Chrona is really a shota? I can’t even tell anymore. Oh BlackStar you and your huge cock ego.
So now that Sasuke’s busy being Mr. Evil Avenger Anti-Hero, someone’s gotta take over the emofag role. Since Sai has to go rescue Sakura from being turned into a susanoo sandwich, Naruto’s up to bat!! Honestly at this point I can’t decide who the bad guy is Danzo or Sasuke? On one hand, Danzo’s like “your brother died for the village, and pretended to be a bad guy, now you wanna destroy that village?” but on the other hand “NOO YOU MADE MY BROTHER A SACRIFICE YURUSANAI ZOOOOO *burns with rage*” So yea I’m not really sure here.
