Anime Snapshots Roundup For Week Of February 27th, 2015

Back again, still on the non-subscribers’ timetable, for another week of The Week in Anime, and as the season begins to head towards the endgame (for most shows, at least), it’s those episodes just before the interesting stuff begins to happen. That’s my excuse for the shortness of the column, and I’m sticking to it. Anime Snapshots Roundup For Week Of February 27th, 2015 First up, a trip to Egypt for Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures, where it truly sucks to be Polnareff.

Actually, check that, it always sucks to be Polnareff. At least this time shit’s not happening in a bathroom. This is also about the last scene that didn’t show far more than I ever wanted to see, frankly. Moving quickly onwards to Kancolle:

I’d’ve used the “Him? He’s ‘armless” joke, except it’s probably been done to death by now anyway. Over in Go!

I mean, when was the last time an anime character changed her hairstyle without some life-or-death reason to make a break with the past? And since I kinda side with the ponytail dude from FMP! Fumoffu?, I approve of the new look.

Never let it said that Kato doesn’t know exactly what’s running through Aki’s head. Nothing escapes that girl. As for new arrival Izumi…

Couldn’t possibly comment. All I could see was the Gainaxing. And this isn’t even a Gainax show. Yatterman Night is next on the list, which for at least some scenes strayed into NSFL (Not Safe for Lepoard) territory…

Someone’s clearly enjoying this far too much.
