Brave Witches – Episode 12: Shining with Light . . .

bw148e12

Thus ends the third anime series in the now expanding World Witches franchise. It seems just like yesterday that trawling the /k/ board on 4chan led me to the work of Shimada Fumikane back when I was just a wee freshman in high school. Three animated series, a series of OVAs, and a movie later, his drawings of moe anthropomorphised military vehicles has become its own little niche market.

 

EDIT: Reflected to fix a mistake while in initial draft that I didn’t catch until now. My apologies.

Brave Witches – Episode 11: We Won’t Know Until We Try

brave-witches-ep-11-wordpress-splash

Hikari leaves on a jet plane train, unsure if she’ll ever be back again. And that was painful to write. Regardless, we’re now at the penultimate episode of the series, and it can’t be a Strike Witches episode 11 without something coming up to ruin higher command’s perfectly laid plans.

Izetta: The Last Witch – Episode 12: Izetta

iz083e12

Izetta’s final episode leaves much to be desired. It isn’t the best, but it isn’t the worse. This episode is the last of what should’ve been a longer series, and with how it ended, it’s quite doubtful we’ll see any more of Archduchess Ortifiné Fredericka von Eylstadt and Izetta, the last witch.

Brave Witches – Episode 10: Big Sister and Little Sister

bw062e10

I have two sisters, both younger. I love em to death but sometimes they annoy me. No doubt they do the same to each other. Sometimes they agree, sometimes they fight, sometimes they talk past each other, and sometimes they understand without a word.

Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 11

Sickness, it seems, is not done with me yet. Currently dealing with a cold with chills, so my thoughts on the whole thing is going to be very short. It’s the penultimate episode of the series, and my review of episode 12 next week will be delayed due to a family outing.

Brave Witches – Episode 9: Break Witches

And thus we finally get to an episode in which the popular in-universe and fandom nickname for the 502nd is revealed. And considering that opening, the deficiency in broken strikers might be made up for this episode?

Izetta: The Last Witch – Episode 10: The Iron Hammer of the Witch

iz065e10

With the shocker that was last episode, I think the rushed plot of the show at least makes some sense in this episode, but it’s still a lot to take in. The conquest of Europe goes swimmingly well for the Greater Germanian Empire. What can possibly go wrong? (Don’t Say That!)

Brave Witches – Episode 8: Grape Juice for Your Eyes

bw044e8

Another Thursday, and as a friend of mine on the Facebooks told me when I woke this morning, what I should do is to not look at Facebook (was on the Messenger app on my phone) and to just watch the episode. I was not disappointed, at all. Hell, I wasn’t disappointed that I spent uh about 6 hours writing this up because of all the checking I had to do.

Izetta: The Last Witch – Episode 9: The Sellun Corridor Burns

iz-title-e9

As I rest up for my eventual runs to clear E-4 for Kantai Collection’s Fall 2016 event, decided to toss this blog post out to calm my nerves. Realizing that I might not have the time (in reality, patience) to face plant on a map folks I know have said is got to be the hardest of the event, I’m going to do it on medium.

Anyways, on to Izetta.

Brave Witches Episode 7: On a Holy Night

With winter now slowly setting over the Petersburg base, life gets a bit more drastic as the events of the past few sorties make their full effect on the 502nd known. That and Krupinski keeps getting into situations that any sane woman would avoid. Now that this post is done, off to clearing the KanColle Fall 2016 Event’s E-2 on Medium (yeah I’m a wuss).
