The rest of these entries weren’t ordered. But this was the best moment in anime of the year. By far. No competition. This is, in fact, the only reason I didn’t just do twelve days of Valvrave.
The moment is from AKB0048. Makoto is an endless failure who whines all the time (hence her nickname, Grumbly).
Last episode the school broke away from their conquered home country and declared independence. What to do next? I know! Let’s record a music video!
Obviously, screencaps are not going to do this song justice. If you haven’t, go watch it already. Continue reading
Crime Edge was one of the most messed up series of the year. Murderous lolis, weird fetishes, it has it all. Anyway… my favorite moment was between the mid-boss and her lover. Well I saw “lover” but it’s more like SM slave.

Iwai watches, heartbroken. Those tears…
Fortunately Kiri snaps out of it.
It’s not due to Iwai’s tears though. It’s because the mid-boss’ hair is full of split ends.
Kiri fights back and defeats the mid-boss’ lover / slave. In his apparent death throes, he delivers his final words:
Crime Edge led me to understand true love.
The Senator wraps up a nice friendly chat with the students.
POSSIBILITY. Continue reading
Honestly, Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi was not a good show. It had no idea where it was heading, the pacing was all over the place, and the characters were poorly used. The latter arcs were especially dumb.
However, the one thing the show did do exceptionally well at was delivering powerful emotional climaxes. I’ll admit it, I cried. The most powerful was at the end of the first arc.
Humphrey, a man cursed by immortality, has wandered the face of the Earth after his wife and daughter disappeared, searching for them and fearing he will be the last one alive in a doomed world. He’s trapped by some robbers, and thinks no one will bother searching for him. He will just let them torture him until they get bored. Continue reading
