Two follow-up reviews!
Konbanwa, and welcome back to Aurus-kun's Periodical Anime Recommendations. I don't have any new shows for you quite yet (though there are a couple that I've started to download and will review next month), but I wanted to give some quick follow-up comments on two anime that I have featured previously.
These follow-up reviews (which I will try to do as often as possible) will be mostly just my own comments and anything noteworthy that I did not say in the initial review. I'll do my best to avoid spoiling anything!
First of all, Sukisyo, which I featured in this month's segment. I've finally downloaded and watched it all, and overall, I enjoyed it. Gratuitous boy-love was never a bad thing. However, I should warn you that once you get past the initial fluff, things begin to get a little bizarre. Don't be fooled by the lighthearted opening, and don't think the weirdness will be a passing phase - it gets pretty strange and really intense, all the way up until the last minutes of the final episode. I enjoyed it, even though the bizarre moments and with the slightly-creepy characters whom I shall not mention, for those of you who haven't seen very far. XD
Second follow-up review is for Air, which I featured in April's segment. I repeat, don't expect the light-hearted fluff to carry on through the whole series. Midway through, it jumps to a slightly-odd backstory, then flips forward again to a turn of events that will have you wondering who drugged your most recent meal. Trust me - the ending will shock you, but it's totally worth watching all the way through. Except for the last episode, which is a recap episode, and I didn't bother with it. XD
That's all I have for you today. When Loveless (featured in April) ends, I'll have a follow-up review for that, as well.
