Check-in Station Year in Review: Winter 2013 (the Warmth of Companionship – and Subpar Anime)

January 2, 2014 2 comments

With my Christmas post, I’ve already started my recap series for the year that I’ve dubbed End of Year Faffery.  My love of  British culture, and love the phrase “faffing about” is the inspiration behind this.  But don’t get the wrong idea.  Though I’m playing with concepts, presentation and ideas all the time on this blog; I’m seriously going through this blogs journey in anime throughout the entire year of 2013.  And I’m of course starting with the first season of the year, the Winter season.  After all, this blog is named the Check-in Station. It wouldn’t be appropriate for me to not not check-in at the end of the year with everything I’ve discovered, and experienced in world of anime.  Please enjoy, as I take on my journey through the year of anime, 2013.

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha ep11: the fruits of labor

The Demon King has been away for quite a while at this point. And the series is moving on with or without her. But despite that the fact that she’s very nearly tucked away at the center of the Earth, her presence shines on in the show in many aspects. Still, despite claims that this may not be one, Maoyuu Maou Yuusha is still a love story to me. And we can’t expect the love interest to just fade away can we? Read more…

Episode 8

If a plan goes wrong, it should go spectacularly wrong! For if it doesn’t, what’s the point? And at the very least, the spectacle can erase the sin of your mistake.

Yeah, this latest episode of Maoyuu Maou Yuusha took a very unexpected turn. By the end of this episode, things became very hopeful, very doubtful and very uncertain. Read more…

I am really enjoy Maoyuu Maou Yuusha on a basic level. And when I say that, I mean I enjoy just watching despite any criticisms. And even better, I enjoy it the most when I can’t muster anything to complain about, like this episode. Read more…

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha ep7: I’m sorry, but how is she the only person in the world with this information?

Episode 6

I usually come off in a negative tone when I start a conversation with a question. And it’s not the preschool crap that announcers say at the end of episodes.

“Will Domon survive the attack?”

“Can Kirby float to the other side of that moat?”

“Did the butler really do it?”

The answers are yes (he’s the star of the f*cking show); yes (Kirby can float forever, just like he can suck infinity); and yes (the butler always does it, but usually with the help of the slutty/greedy maid). What I really want to know is how the world of Maoyuu Maou Yuusha is so prehistoric and backwards that it hasn’t figured out basic agricultural and navigational techniques and devices, but it can have this sophisticated economic system based on war? And don’t give me that crap about basic medieval serfdom and the intervention of magic either. This Demon King chick is either a damn time traveler or she has help.
