It being just over a month since I started my first show of the Spring ’12 season, I thought I’d let anyone out there who cares know how I’m getting along with the shows I picked out. Feel free to compare to my Spring ’12 preview and see how horribly wrong or, (more applicable) scarily right I was about these shows. I’ve arranged the shows in descending order too, just another indicator of how much I’m enjoying them, knock yourself out!
Boy am I grateful this episode was an improvement on last’s- after all that hyping I did of the show during my first two posts on it, it would have been terribly embarrassing for it to have churned out another let-down. This week’s episode, as with the ones before it, contained plenty of symbolism but, I was particularly impressed by what was being eluded to this week, stigmata.
Now that Nazo no Kanojo X has reached that point where, if viewers were going to be deterred from watching it for one reason or another, this would have already have taken place, I feel it’s beginning to flag a little. This episode, in particular, was largely unnecessary as it merely regurgitated the last’s overarching themes. Yes, that right, I’m in a critical mood today after having been let down by my protégée show!
After last week’s brilliant opening episode I wasn’t sure how this week’s would be able to meet the expectations I had of it but, I needn’t have worried because this episode was also pretty outstanding! It followed on from the theme of Urabe deconstructing Tsubaki’s more traditional concepts of love and what being in a relationship is all about but, as par in Nazo no Kanojo, in a pretty unusual, strangely tender way.
