After his father’s death, Masaru Saiga inherits 18 billion yen, making him the target of dark forces using powerful combat puppets. While on the run, he meets Narumi Kato, a kung fu practitioner with a strange illness and Shirogane, a servant who’s sworn to serve Masaru’s family. Shirogane wields the powerful puppet, Arlequin, against those that would attempt to harm Masaru.
Say goodbye to all the high school related titles as School Live, Prison School, and Classroom Crisis come to a conclusion, as well as a “see you later” to Miss Monochrome as we’ll see her next season.
Polar opposite reactions this week as we rave about School Live’s stellar penultimate episode and I finally let out my bottled up rage I’ve been carrying from 12 episodes of Classroom Crisis. Sadly, it’s not even the last episode.
I must be in a bad mood today because nearly every Early Edition show delivers this week and yet I still find reasons to complain. School Live pays the price for all the fun it had last week, Ushio and Tora asks us to peep game, Miss Monochrome goes virus hunting, Prison School adapts the funniest chapter of the manga, and Classroom Crisis actually has people making out. Should be good times, right?
Bad news: Summer is over. Worse news: Summer season is not yet over. As you might have been able to tell from the dearth of content, the current anime load-out hasn’t really managed to swipe us off our feet. A more satisfactory review awaits you in a few weeks, but now that we’re halfway through the season already, the members of our merry crew have had more than enough time to pick their favourite anime song of the season. That is, if they even watched anything at all this season.
A bit of a slow week for School Live and Classroom Crisis, but Ushio and Tora has a fight on an airplane and Miss Monochrome has a bizarre, vaguely inappropriate relationship with an anthropomorphized battery. ANIME!
A strong week for the Early Edition as School Live reveals the fate of our favorite teacher, Miss Monochrome exposes the seedy underbelly of the idol industry, and Classroom Crisis continues its slow crawl to respectability. Also, Prison School has boner jokes? OK, I went one bullet point too far.
