And I thought Yamato was Anime Jesus, KanColle Episode 11

Though I guess that’s only true if they also have the name Kira, even if being able to walk on water is a prerequisite for being a shipgirl. Well, unless you are Kisaragi.

Blub Blub.

Who Keeps Leaving All Those Glass Slippers Everywhere, in Cinderella Girls 7?

Whoops, I’ve sat on this one for a wee bit too long, though as an episode, this one very much wears it’s heart on it’s sleeve – it understands that it’s not the time to be making in-jokes, or to be filling itself with cameos of third-string Cinderellas. It plays things straight and effectively.

The Growth Spurts of a Teenage Shipgirl in KanColle Episode 9

Think you are getting a Yuudachi episode? Think again, poi – it’s another boring, boring Fubuki episode. It’s kind of uneventful as well, aside from one big event dropped right at the end – It’s just a boring ShipGirl moping around about boring things.

But, hey, at least I can be quick this week, because there’s really not a whole lot to be writing about.

You Can Check-Out Any Time You Like, But You Can Never Leave in KanColle Episode 8

This time on KanColle, good golly, Fubuki is really rather boring.

I mean, it’s not normally that much of a problem in the show, because a certain degree of grounding is necessary so that things don’t feel too weird then they throw the girls into a bloodbath of a skirmish. The problem this time is that the episode is straddling something of a tonal middle ground – for all the jokes about Yamato not being a hotel, it’s not an outright comedy episode like the Kongou-class or the Akatsuki-class episodes, but it’s definitely not an action episode like last weeks. It’s really just a kinda toothless episode about the melancholy of being an undeployed shipgirl.

Which isn’t to say it’s an awful episode of anime – despite all, any episode of KanColle is something at least I tend to enjoy more than an awful lot of other shows – but it’s definitely been the weakest episode so far for me, and that’s definitely because Fubuki is just that darn boring.
