Ani-Monday on September 24

Well Monday night has come and gone, and I have, as usual, watched two of the four animes being offered on that particular night for our viewing pleasure from the Sci-Fi Channel. Noein is still in mid-series, while Tokko had their conclusion last night.

Truth be told, there's not a lot to report about what happened in Noein last night. We did not get that many answers, just a bit of techno-babble worthy of any Star Trek: The Next Generation episode. Well, we did get to see Yuu dumping some of his angst and standing up for Haruka again - the last time that I remember him doing that was early on in those first few episodes. Good for him.

But turning over to Tokko, well, we actually get a lot of answers here. Of course, not a single bit of it is worth anything as those answers all come from the antagonists of the piece. That said, the decision here was to end the series on a cliffhanger. Frankly, I'm of two minds about the rather... overt way this cliffhanger was handled. On the one hand, it's obvious that there's more story to tell involving our heroes. On the other, that story hasn't been written, and doesn't appear to be getting written.

Oh well, I enjoyed the series, though it's not one that I plan on asking the wifey to get me later on. Currently, Noein will probably be one of those things that I want to add to my collection.

There were two episodes of Streetfighter II on last night as well. I didn't watch them.

As I said in yesterday's post, Tokko is over, and Streetfighter II is gone as well. What that means is that Noein is now pushed back to the Streetfighter II timeslot, and we're going to be getting two episodes a week for it, and a brand new anime is coming in for the earlier timeslot.

Should be an interesting week, next week.
