Ani-Monday on August 27

Well, I finally managed to watch Ani-Monday again last night so I actually get something to say about it this week.

Unfortunately, because I was out getting my dinner at almost 10 o'clock last night, I missed the first third or so of Noein. That's a complicated show, and I fear I may be totally lost with the details. I think I can catch up on the over-arching plot line, but next week will be the ultimate deciding factor on that. The good news is that it is out on DVD so I should be able to get my hands on a copy (and yes, that's another hint Pi).

Tokko though, I did manage to watch from beginning to end. Additionally, it's not quite as complicated a show as Noein so I was able to infer what's happened during those two missing weeks. Basically, it looks like Shindo's symbiote has been awakened, and he's now unofficially a part of the team dedicated to destroying the phantoms. This episode he faces his inner demon, and Sakura helps him through it. It's basically a lot of character development through fights in Shindo's mind. All in all, a strong episode.

As usual, I ignored the two episodes of Street Fighter II.

Next week, we get more episodes of Noein and Tokko and I get to continue ignoring Street Fighter II.
