So, I just finished Gakkou-Gurashi and Sabagebu, so I'll give a short review for them both (as I usually try to do). I've also only got one episode left for Kinmoza's second season, so might as well do that one too.
Gakkou-Gurashi - I very much liked the show over all. I have to admit, while the ending fit with the over all feel of the show (kinda cutesy in a fucked up situation)
, it did kinda make me feel a little
let down. I also wish they had explored Yuki's psychosis
more, but I still felt like there was enough. I would love to see a second season. I mean, they left the school
, but they aren't out of the woods yet! I'm not holding my breath though......
Sabagebu - What a quirky show. It left me early on with the impression that this show/manga was by guys, for guys. I'm shocked, quite frankly, to learn the original author is female!
But anyway, it still made me laugh on many occasions. It kinda struck me as a Japanese equivalent of Family Guy or American Dad. Kinda. I have to admit, that one episode with the whole bathroom thing kinda threw me. Cultural differences.
I'd watch it again though, it was good. 7.5/10
Kinmoza - [I'm not anticipating any major thing in the last episode of season two that will ruin my impression of this show, so might as well write it up now.
] This show has an interesting premise to me, a British girl moving to Japan after having what I would call a foreign exchange student live with her. It was typical of moe comedy, by and large. However, I still found it's cast of characters to be very good, and very funny. Haha. 9/10 *Hopes for a third season*Viewing List

On a side note, is there not
