Let’s Look: Koufuku Graffiti Finale Episode 12: The Best Meals Are Never Eaten Alone

Aw it’s over. Koufuku Graffiti was a ride and then some. I’m going to miss it but I’m kinda happy that I don’t need to make sure that I ate before I sit down for a reviewing session.

So we start the episode with this.

Snapshot_1

Eh? Aren’t you both worried about getting to high school?

But it turns out that what they’re saying is a play on words in Japanese. What they’re saying is a phrase that’s similar to their numbers on the board to see who got in.

Kirin’s 296 and Ryo’s 530.

Both numbers are up there! That means that they passed!

Alright! One year of hard work paid off!

Snapshot_6

So what is Kirin going to do? She lives like out in Hiroshima. How’s that commute going to work?

From what money that you have?

So after Ryo finishes up a call, the girls look a cherry blossom tree that has its first buds blooming but that’s not the thing you should look at it.

Snapshot_9

You have her in the last episode but that’s it! No Yuuki no Life!

So after the opening, we get this.

So she didn’t tell her parents? What a smart move. Clearly ready for high school right there.

Turns out that Kirin’s just over-exaggerating and it looks like her Dad’s right along with her. He’s going on and how she’s growing up and soon she’ll be graduating, getting a job, and getting married.

I’m not sure anyone would want to touch her like that. She looks like a little girl in a wedding dress. The guy that marries her would look like a lolicon.

Meanwhile Kirin’s mom is snarking that he took Kirin’s side so he shouldn’t be sad.

But Kirin promises that she’ll be back to help in the fields when they need her. Nice but they go all over the top with it.

Being Kirin’s mother is suffering.

Snapshot_17

Then we switch over to Ryo’s who’s getting ready for her last day of school, reminiscing that her uniform used to be all baggy on her and it’s snug.

Snapshot_18

Maybe too snug.

Snapshot_19

Yeah maybe all that heavy eating you’v been doing over the last year had something to do with it.

After managing to stuff herself into her skirt, Ryo prays to her grandma to tell her that she’s leaving for her graduation.

After that Ryo has a small monologue about how things have changed and the meal that her grandma made after her entrance ceremony

Aww that’s so sweet but you what’d be funny? Her stomach growling.

Snapshot_29

Best friends ignore the embarrassing parts of you.

So then Ryo gets called up for her diploma but unfortunately Akira can’t be there so there’s no one to watch her or is there…

Snapshot_30

That was unexpected. So turns out Kirin’s graduation was two days ago so she decided to come to Ryo’s graduation.

So after a little teasing about her growling stomach, Ryo’s friends from school come in and Ryo explains that they passed too so they’ll all be going to the same school.

After that we head home with Kirin and Ryo with them carrying a bit of food for some celebrating!

Unfortunately Kirin forgot her luggage at the station in a coin locker so she goes back to get it leaving Ryo alone to cook.

Snapshot_31

Burglar!

Snapshot_32 Snapshot_33

That’s what you get Akira!

So we go into the house where Akira apologizes for not being there enough for Ryo but says that she’s there when it counts and that’s most important.

And nothing proves that better than this gift.

Snapshot_34

That apron was Ryo’s grandmother. Apparently Ryo’s grandmother expected her death and gave the apron to Akira to give to Ryo when she graduated middle school.

It’s official that Ryo’s grandma is the most awesome lady to ever take care of a child. She knew she was going to die so she took steps to make something for her granddaughter.

So after that Akira’s got to go back to work and after that Ryo jumps into the kitchen to make the best meal that she can with her grandma’s apron!

Snapshot_35

It even has that yellowtail that she made in the first episode but it didn’t taste good to her.

Snapshot_36

I have a feeling that it’s going to be great this time around Ryo.

Once she finishes up, she takes a bit of the yellowtail.

Snapshot_37

So cute but to her it doesn’t taste like the yellowtail her grandma made.

Then Kirin comes in all her stuff.

Snapshot_38

You’re moving in Kirin not conquering the place.

After that it’s time for dinner and while Kirin’s there, Ryo notices that the food tastes so much better with Kirin there.

So after dinner, Ryo explains that her apron is a gift from her grandma that Akira kept. Kirin says that even though her grandma is dead she’s still making memories with her with that apron.

So sweet of you Kirin.

Snapshot_47

So apparently Kirin has a low awesome stat because in the next scene’s already going to sleep while Ryo sends prayers to her grandma, thaking her for the things she’s taught her.

Aww after Kirin talks about eating all of Ryo’s cooking everyday.

Snapshot_48

So the next day Kirin tells Ryo that she’ll be moving in and the movers are going to be there soon.

Snapshot_49

After that we get more Shiina and apparently she knew too…Ryo’s sad. It’s tough to be the only one that didn’t know.

Snapshot_50

And she brought food!

Snapshot_51

So they go outside the girls see that Kirin’s mom and dad are there to help with the move. Akira joins in too but no one even told Ryo that Kirin’s moving in.

When were they going to say something? After Kirin got everything all straighten out in her room?

Despite that Ryo isn’t mad and she’s just happy to be living with Ryo.

And after that we have a montage of some of Ryo’s memories, growing up, and losing her grandma. She was so alone but now her house is so full of people.

That’s so sweet. I love how this anime ends.

And with that Kirin’s mom makes her apparently signature vegetable stir fry and the whole group eats it with Shiina’s sandwiches.

Snapshot_52

Everyone digs in!

As they start eating, Ryo says that she wants to invite Yuuki from downstairs and Kirin goes to join her, saying that she looks forward to living with her.

And with that Koufuku Graffiti ends.

Snapshot_53

My thoughts

Ah the feel good anime of the Winter Anime Season. I loved the entire ride that Koufuku Graffiti took me on. The cuteness, the food, and the interactions of the characters were all spot on.

Only thing I didn’t like was that Yuuki Uchiki was introduced way too late for her to have much impact on the plot. She’s supposed to figure in a lot more during part two of the manga but she’s basically a minor character here. Sad…

So I’m giving Koufuku Graffiti a 9.5 out of 10. This is definitely one of those relax in the warmth and just relax animes. Just make sure you eat before you watch it!

So with that and Isuca Episode 10 being reviewed, my Winter Anime Season is over.

Now it’s time to move onto Spring. I just want to say right now that the reviews for all the season openings will be out on Tuesday or Wednesday mostly because I’m going to get them in 1080p quality and have the pics in PNG form. That takes time but trust me it’s going to be worth the wait.

So until the beginning of the Spring Season,

Let’s Look:Isuca Episode 9: Sakuya’s Grandma Can’t Be This Cute

One more episode until the finale…although I’m writing this after I’ve seen the finale so it’s kinda of a moot point. No hype is left…

Side Note: Like the Oreimo reference

So we open up with Isuca in some type of tank getting healed. You remember those tanks from Dragonball Z where if you just sat in them for some time you’d be alright it’s probably like that.

Snapshot_1

So Isuca’s ticked off that she lost to Sakuya and she swears to kill her.

So after the opening we have this.

Snapshot_2

Alright who brought the marshmellows? Nobody? Selfish?

So we go to the group back at Sakuya’s house and Nadeshiko explains that four churches have been burned down over the last few nights but that’s the biggest problem.

Snapshot_3

Meaning that whoever did this trying to weaken the city spiritually so something can be done. Is it Isuca? Nah it’s that guy that was healing.

Whatever it is that they said, it ticks Sakuya off. She’s probably suspecting what I’m thinking. That Isuca is her sister!

Cue Dramatic music

After all the odds of someone having the same true name as you is low as throwing a rock off a bridge and having it land in a cup in a boat. It’s technically possible but highly unlikely.

Or for an analogy that others can understand. It’s the same thing has being able to get a 5 IV Shiny Latias with Hidden Power Fire. It’s technically possibility but so rare it’s impossible without help.

So Sakuya leaves and goes to the archery range to practice. Of course Shin goes to see what’s up and gets this for his trouble.

Snapshot_4

That’s why you don’t mess with someone that’s using a bow.

So Shin’s wondering if Isuca’s having an effect on Sakuya. Will she release the seal on the bow again to beat her?

We don’t know yet. So we go to the next day and Shin meets up with Suseri and goes up with her.

And while they walk home, Shin asks Suseri about the true name thing and the odds that someone can have the same true name as another person.

But the odds that two people will connect to the same name are odd.

So we get back home and everyone’s getting ready to defend the last church. If this one falls Yokohama is going to be spiritually defenseless. Who know what will happen? Evil monsters getting through? Magic beyond limits being cast?

So we need all hands on deck…except Sakuya. She’s on back up. She’s too emotionally involved in this to make a good decision plus her Spirit Bow is out of the game.

So Tamako will take the raid position while Suseri and Shin are on offense. Let’s hope that they can get a win.

But Sakuya’s against it. Mostly because she’s scared that he’ll die. She definitely felt how mortal he was back in the subway with the smoke spirit. But Shin manages to reassure her.

So we move to the church where we get Isuca and we see that her arm’s back.

The team tries to beat Isuca but no dice. Isuca gets the drop on Shin and gives him a bite while the church is burned down.

Snapshot_7

Now Yokohama is wide open for attack. Who’s going to make their move?

So the next day we get this little girl at the door.

Snapshot_8

Aw ain’t she cute? I can just fold her up in my pocket and keep her there.

Snapshot_9

Eh? EEEEH? How?! She looks like she’s in middle school at the latest?! How damn it! How!?

So why is she here other than to troll the crap out of everyone that doesn’t know about this?

Snapshot_10

Oh that’s easy.

But at least she understands why she acted the way she did since they’re facing the Asahina.

Asahina…Suzuka? They’re fighting the characters from the Suzuka manga? Yeah…I know bad joke. Let’s get back to it then.

But the main reason why Sakuya’s so troubled…the Asahina are her father’s family.

So after Nami the Grandma Loli the group throws around the idea that Isuca isn’t a human but a homoculus. It’s a type of human made by alchemy and it’s the speciality of the Asahina family.

Apparently everyone was thinking that just because Sakuya’s father married in Shimazu things would be all cool and nice. Wrong. He just was bidding his time…for pure evil!

Anyway it gets to the point that Sakuya wants to know about her parents. The truth is too much for Sakuya to know.

But Sakuya’s grandma takes Shin to talk about things. They talk about if Shin is willing to stick with Sakuya even though it’d hard and getting harder every day. Of course he says yeah.

Aw this sounds like a grandma talking to her future grandson in law.

We need some excitment.

Snapshot_11

Killed the Loli! You bastards!

Damn it Shin! Can’t do anything right! Protect the Loli at all costs!

protect_the_loli_by_diva_fan-d321wvl

So now Isuca’s killed Nami it’s time to do a summoning.

Snapshot_12

Well…that’s a big snake.

Looks like they destroyed all the churchs in Yokohama just so Isuca could summon this thing.

Now it’s getting serious and the battle against the snake ain’t going good for Nadeshiko, Suseri, Matsuri, and Tamako.

At the same time, it’s Sakuya vs. Isuca!

Apparently Nami’s alive. That loli body is just a puppet body. Thank God the Loli’s safe!

But now it’s the final battle between Sakuya and Isuca and things aren’t going well for Sakuya.

Snapshot_13

And the episode ends with this.

Well yeah…I wouldn’t say I lost interest but I’m not that motivated. I’m more eager for the Spring Season to start but I’ll stick to the end of this series and deliver the final review.

Snapshot_14

So until the next review,
Later Days

Let’s Look: Koufuku Graffiti Episode 11: Two For the Price of One

Great episode. Twofer! And we get a lot more Shiina! Prepare yourselves for the finale next week!

So we start off with this.

Did Ryo become a vampire? What’s with the cloak? And the bowl of ramen? You’re a bad vampire if you eat ramen instead of blood Ryo-chan.

So we’re down to the wire with Ryo. The high school entrance exam is next month in March. She’s studying all out but then…

Snapshot_6

Ah drowning in work.

Snapshot_7

It’s the worst monster of all! Learning!

So it turns out that it was just a dream. After seeing that she fell asleep, Ryo decides to take a break. She sees something, not sure if it’s a commercial or a TV show, where a mom gives her daughter a late night snack after studying for exams.

Snapshot_10

Wow that was incredibly convenient…

Snapshot_9

She agrees. After that Ryo starts think about her parents and the fact that they’re still overseas. I’m still on the fact that they sent her Japanese rice when she’s in Japan! Japanese rice in Japan is like Chinese food in China. It doesn’t have any novelty to it.

Anyway seeing the girl and her mom on TV makes Ryo hungry for some rice balls. I always wanted to try these. I’ve got a new rice cooker so I’m thinking of making them myself. I’ll post a picture on Twitter when I do!

So while she’s making the rice balls, two things come to the door, Kirin and a package from her mom.

Snapshot_11

Eh? Is that ramen? Do they realize that she’s in Japan and can get ramen any time she wants?

Snapshot_12

You know where she can get some Japanese ramen…from a store down the street!

So Kirin’s making the jump! Looks like ramen for dinner!

Snapshot_13

What? So Ryo explains that it’s going to be their late night study snack and she gets this big smile on her face while Kirin looks like this.

Snapshot_14

She’s probably thinking what heck is she talking about? I want that ramen now!

So we see the girls studying again and while they study Kirin takes a look over at Ryo’s notes.

Snapshot_15

Get on the job Ryo! You can’t get into high school with your cooking skills and your good looks.

So when Kirin asks about Ryo’s parents, Kirin has a flashbacak about her asking her mother about Ryo’s parents…no one not one person in this anime gives a straight answer about what they do.

What do they do damn it?! Quit being so secretive!

So anyone Kirin’s mother then says that Ryo’s parents once tried to hire her a bodyguard.

Cue Kirin’s imagination…

She could work for Pixar and Disney. She could make something waaaaayyy better than Frozen 2. Let that movie go. Let go! I don’t wanna see anymore! Let go!

But that ain’t flying for Kirin. If you want something done right…

Snapshot_20

Sounds cool but looks like this…

Snapshot_21

I love when stuff like this happens.

So after that Kirin asks Ryo if she wants to take a break. So when comes to making the snack it’s Kirin.

Hmm I wonder how she’s going to do it?

Snapshot_22

She didn’t take a long time.

Snapshot_23

Maybe she took longer than I thought. So Kirin goes to wake Ryo up so they can eat. But when Ryo wakes up who does she see?

Snapshot_24

 

Aww…she may say that she’s fine but she still wants to see her parents.

Aww the feels right in the heart!

So once Ryo fully wakes up she explains her dream…it doesn’t even make sense so Kirin says they should try and eat and talk.

I’m really going to miss this anime. Sexy eating never looked so sexy.

So after dinner, Ryo apologizes for blurting all that stuff. She says that she can’t say that she’s never lonely but she isn’t terribly lonely.

Confused? So am I.

Anyway despite being a bit lonely, Ryo says with the package from her parents and Kirin cooking for her, she couldn’t be happier.

So while the two of them are cleaning up after dinner, Kirin finds this.

Snapshot_37

So Ryo’s mother wrote Kirin a letter and snuck it into the box of ramen. Nice.

So after reading the letter, Kirin asked Ryo what her parents’ jobs are…

What do they do damn it?!

So we move into part two. We have Ryo, Kirin and you guess it, Shiina! Finally after so many episodes of her just getting passing references, she’s here!

Anyway our three girls are at the shrine praying for success. Why? Because the exams for high school are next week!

Crunch time on the highest level!

That’s good what about Shiina?

Snapshot_51

Poor girl must have forgotten she lived in a mansion with massive grounds and a maid.

Sounds good but still sounds greedy. So when Kirin says if she makes wishes like that she won’t get into high school, Shiina says that she doesn’t need to worry about that.

When everyone gets confused, Shiina explains. She’s already in the school! She’s passed already?!

EH?!

What’s your thoughts, girls?

Snapshot_58

Someone’s got to meme this.

Anyway so Shiina explains that even though she got in early she didn’t a free ride. She still had to take all the exams and do all the paperwork that Kirin and Ryo will have to do. So basically it’s just advance testing.

So sweet…now do a big yuri kiss please.

So Kirin tries to jump in and says congrats too. So the girls go to the gift shop and get some good luck charms. Just a few…

Snapshot_61

It’s just a few. So while they’re walking out, Kirin asks for any tips on the exam but Shiina says this.

Snapshot_62

She’s right. In that test it’s all down to you, that pencil, and whatever’s in your head. No one else can help you.

I get this same thing but it’s darkness and I’m laughing evilly right after. Mwhahaha. It’s so stress relieving.

So while trying to get over Shiina not giving any hints, Kirin and Ryo keep rubbing her trying to get her good luck. Nice try! Shiina’s got Good Luck Rank EX. You guys can’t steal it!

Then it’s time for lunch and Shiina’s got it covered!

We all know what’s going to happen. Kirin’s like a five year with some cookies. Willpower will crumble and you will eat.

Snapshot_67

Everyone’s got a price.

So after that the girls dig in.

So cute…

I always love when I see people looking from the outside. It’s hilarious.

After that Shiina comments that Tsukuyo’s been making these for a while. Just so you know these are called Katsu Sandwiches. The name is a pun on cutlet’s Japanese pronouncitation and Katsu for victory.

So why has Tsuyuko been making these so often?

Aww she really does care about her charge.

Anyway Shiina explains that she ate these sandwiches on the day of her exam and she felt that she wasn’t alone because it felt like Tsuyuko was with her.

After that Shiina apologizes for being so cold to them and allows them to ask any questions they want. So Ryo asks where the toilet is in the exam hall. Clever. First thing I’d do.

Now check this out.

Snapshot_81

Hmm they live in Tokyo. Love Live is set in a certain district of Tokyo near Akibahara…this is that shrine that Nozomi Tojou works at. It’s called the Kanada Myoujin Shrine.

Anyway we move to the day of the exam. Ryo and Kirin head to the train station to go to the high school.

Shiina meets them there and gives them a lunch to eat.

And with that Shiina wishes them good luck and the episode ends with that.

Snapshot_82

Now that’s a ride. I can’t wait until the finale this week. How has been Koufuku Graffiti been treating you? Have you been loving it as much as I have?

It’s a pity that it has to end but it’s the only way to get to the Spring Season.

So until the finale of Koufuku Graffiti,
Later Days

Let’s Look: Koufuku Graffiti Episode 10: Neighbor Finally Revealed!

Ah doesn it feel good to finally have a character that hadn’t been introduced yet finally be introduced. Everyone watching Saekano knows what I’m talking about…

That joke is only going to be funny until they finally introduce Michiru. I don’t like jokes with a time limit…

Anyway we start the episode with this.

Anyone think that that cheese looked suggestive? You know the fact that she’s all covered in it…

So after the opening we see our girl for the episode, Yuuki Uchiki, walking home after a day at college.

Snapshot_5

Now on the first watch of this episode I thought she was in high school mostly because she looks so freaking young.

Do you have the friend or family member that just looks like they have a connection to the Fountain of Youth or something?

I have a relative that’s 46 with a 2 year old granddaughter. She still gets carded when she goes to buy stuff like alcohol and cigarettes.

So it looks like she’s about to graduate this Spring.

Anyway as she runs away from the girls she’s leaving the campus with she says this.

Snapshot_6

It’s a metaphor I suppose. It’s still winter in the anime but Spring is coming around soon. I want to say it’s about February there. Other half is more Japanese culture.

In Japan, Spring is known as the season of new beginnings and fresh starts. So when Yuuki says that Spring isn’t going to come she means that she’ll never change.

Sad it isn’t.

So we move on to Ryo and the gang. Looks like they’re in cram school now.

Snapshot_7

And it’s emptier than my stomach right now…even sadder.

So it turns out that a lot of people skipped cram school because they’re down to the final few weeks before the Entrance Exams.

Snapshot_8

Speak the truth, short sister!

I had to take Entrance Exams to get into my high school but granted my story wouldn’t motivate you. I just slept, napped, played PS2(Hey this was 2008), and studied like once or twice. I went to the school of my choice, took the test, and passed into the 84th percentile.

I am a bad example for studying and prudence…

Anyway as a group of girls from the school they want to go to pass Kirin wonders if she’s good enough to get into high school, if she’ll make any friends, or even fit in.

Which is a very reasonable feeling first going into high school or even going to college. They’re both very frigtening experiences.

So what does Ryo do? Suggest renting a movie!

That’s nice. Something fun to perk her up.

Snapshot_9

What the hell is wrong with you woman?! What kinda sick sense of humor is this?

Who taught you that lie?

So after the movie, Kirin’s still stressed. Not just about the exams and making friends. She’s worrying about her parents’ rice fields and environmental issues…

What is with that?

So to wondering if Ryo’s feeling something similar, Kirin asks. Ryo doesn’t got nothing else other than what Kirin’s feeling. She does worry about her laudry outside…which she forgot to pull in!

Snapshot_12

They go outside to pull in the futons when they hear the conversation between Yuuki(the neighbor below Ryo) and her mother.

What kinda mother suggests her daughter learn to bellydance?

The main issue with Yuuki and her mother isn’t that her mother doesn’t love her. She doesn’t understand the situation properly. According to Yuuki, her mother’s very outgoing while her daughter is fairly shy.

It happens a lot. Parents that were the life of the party as kids and young adults have children that are quiet and shy. Happened to me. My dad was the captain of the football team and I want to be a computer programmer…that’s about as opposite as it gets. He still loved me though. There’s always that.

Anyway Ryo and Kirin listen on Yuuki’s conversation but after a certain amount of time Ryo says that it’s impolite to keep listening.

Snapshot_22

However Kirin’s too far gone and by gone I mean over the rail! That’s right she falls from the 2nd floor…

Snapshot_23

And she sticks the landing like a badass!

So after Kirin’s epic landing, Ryo and Kirin go down to Yuuki’s apartment to apologize. However Yuuki turns it into a beat up session on herself. However she rarely talks mostly because she’s thinking bad of herself.

However Kirin understands her feeling wondering about her future. Yuuki feels that with the way she is there’s nothing she can do. She says so much that could inspire Kirin but she doesn’t much of it outloud.

This is definitely a problem I have and it’s always held me back. I don’t want to look stupid in front of others so I keep my mouth shut and retreat into my thoughts where no one can judge me. Ironically I am a very cruel judge of myself…

There’s no where I can go….Being Deven is suffering, desho?

Because her inability to talk to people she only has two friends…

Someone asked on Reddit ‘What if the cat eats the bird?’ Good question! We will never know the answer though.

So the door rings and the pizza delievry is here.

Snapshot_28

Wow for types of pizza in one! That’s awesome.

Now don’t try this with your local pizza shop. They probably aren’t going to do it. Also apparently Yuuki is somewhat rich. Mostly because she can afford to eat pizza everyday and a large pizza in Japan(which around the size of a medium here in America) costs around 3000 yen or 24. 71 American Dollars at today’s exchange rate. Plus toppings. She’s spending roughly about 35 dollars per pizza plus side dishes. That’s a lot…

She has seafood pizza, gratin(a type of pasta), Yakiniku pizza, and salami and mushroom pizza so she can eat four meals out of it. However she work out like no one’s business and be rich. There’s no way she can have a body like Ryo’s and eat all that pizza everyday…

I’m getting off topic.

So Yuuki offers some of her pizza to Ryo and Kirin for coming over and talking with her. So instead of just taking it and going, Ryo invites Yuuki upstairs so they can eat together.

So when Yuuki gets up to Ryo’s apartment she starts to wonder why Ryo’s apartment is so much warmer than hers. Warmer emotionally she probably means.

The answer is that she has people that she loves over a lot and that love is in the house itself.

So it’s time to chow down and we get our goods of sexy eating.

I wish girls ate like this in real life. Every meal would be an adventure and I’d actually enjoy going to the cafeteria at my college.

Anyway Ryo gets Yuuki get some pizza but she doesn’t really want to eat.

So Yuuki is similar to Ryo and Kirin. I think this is the start of a good frienship.

So Ryo manages to get her to try and we get this.

So cute. And she notices that it tastes so much better now. It’s because you’re not alone anymore Yuuki-chan.

I think that Yuuki’s eating was cutest. She has cute music to go with it.

After that the three of them eat together and really enjoy each other’s company.

After the meal, Yuuki leaves but not saying this to herself.

I think it’s nice that that her name is Yuuki and that Kirin and Ryo gave her courage. Remember when you spell Yuki with one U it means snow. When you spell it with two U’s it’s courage. It’s a kinda pun and allowing Yuuki to live up to her name.

And meeting Yuuki gave Kirin some courage too. The next day as she’s leaving out Yuuki says bye to Kirin and Ryo.

Snapshot_56

What does she mean?

Snapshot_57

That’s the school that Kirin, Ryo, and Shiina want to go to.

Note: Yuuki actually gets the job at the Fine Arts Academy and becomes one of the girls’ teachers. Either than or librarian. I don’t know the sources I’ve read didn’t agree one thing

The episode ends with Ryo walking home after dropping Kirin off at the train station.

Snapshot_58

And we see the buds on the tree. Looks like Spring’s coming early.

Now that’s a good episode. It’s good to have a character that you really connect with. It makes a good anime even better.

Snapshot_61

You aren’t alone as you think Yuuki.

So this is the 10th episode of Koufuku Graffiti so that means that there’s only two more episodes left. Let’s hope that we end with a bang!

Until the next episode,

Let’s Look: Isuca Episode 8: Date A Suseri!

I couldn’t think of a title for this one that wasn’t a direct spoiler. I’m struggling to hold it in until the end of the review…

So we come back after last week’s episode and Sakuya’s in coma after using the final technique of the Shimazu.

Snapshot_1

After taking the seal off her bow, she got her spiritual energy drained down to nothing. But no worries since a kiss from Shin will get her off her bench.

I’m not fond of this. If you were going to have her use this legendary technique that will kill her then the fix shouldn’t be so easy.

So after the opening, we have a Shimazu family meeting where it’s shown that Sakuya’s not going to be banished despite having her true name revealed.

Snapshot_3

This is Suseri’s mom so I guess that makes her Sakuya’s aunt. Anyway she’s all against Sakuya still being in the running for the head of the family. Sad mom just sad. Suseri can’t win any other way?

She also makes excuses for her like saying that Suseri wasn’t at her best last episode when she fought Isuca. All she did was run a bit and use two summons then she proceeded to get wrecked. Why? Because she fought alone.

Anyway Suseri then asks to do this thing called the Ritual of Exorcism. What ever it is sounds bad and sounds like the plot of our episode!

So next we see Shin walking to the market but then meets up with Suseri. She asks to go with him and he lets her.

And the whole thing turns into a psuedo date. He takes her out for ice cream, he takes her shopping, they talk. It’s all really nice.

Shin has a good time but it looks like Suseri is basically along for the ride.

It’s revealed that she, despite her talent and good looks, is very dependant on her mother and others to make decisions for her. She couldn’t pick out clothes at the store. She didn’t even know that she liked ice cream.

Why doesn’t she know this stuff? Mostly its on her mother. That old witch trained and trained Suseri all the time to become the head of the family.

Childhood? Playtime? That’s for fools like Sakuya apparently. And that lead to a lot of resentment on Suseri’s side because from her side it looked like Sakuya was going to be head of the family with little to no work while she busted her butt everyday nonstop.

So after their date, Suseri goes to a field with Matsuri(her handmaiden who’s name I couldn’t remember) and Nadeshiko and this guy shows up…

Snapshot_14

Wait isn’t that the lightning beast that Sakuya sealed in the first episode?

So a scene later we get this.

Snapshot_15

Wow that was fast.

So after that Nadeshiko explains that the Ritual of Exorcism is a battle with a Yokai to try and make it your Shikigami like the Kamatachi that Suseri uses.

She was trying to tame that huge thing? Let’s start with something smaller first like a squirrel or something.

So since Suseri insists on going back to fight it again Shin decides to go with her.

However he isn’t much help.

Snapshot_16

Yet his presence does make Suseri change. Well not just his presence at the fight. That entire day changed her. Now she wants to think and act for herself. And she even admits that she cares about and looks up to Sakuya. How can you tell?

And what’s Suseri’s true name. Sakuya. That’s right in the feels man.

And with that Suseri kisses Shin and uses a bit of his power to defeat the lightning beasts. Granted she didn’t defeat him with power. She beat him with her determination and that’s a better victory than just overpowering something.

So when Shin wakes up, the lightning beast is already tamed and needs a name.

Snapshot_26

Must hold it in…failing to hold it in…

Rejoice Emiya Shiro!

Now that felt good. With this episode I think that I can like Suseri more than just a sexy fanservice girl without a personality.

And with that the episode ends.

Snapshot_27

We’re at the final two episodes. I’m curious how things are going to end with Isuca. Originally I thought that Isuca was going to suck but it has a certain appeal to it.

So until the next episode,

Let’s Look: Isuca Episode 5: From Tsun to Dere: The Story of Sakuya Shimazu

Slow it down, Sakuya! You can’t just change it up all quick like this. You’ll give the viewer a wicked case of whiplash.

So we start off the episode with Shin just casually walking home when Sakuya turns up. Apparently she was waiting for him…in the most tsundere way possible.

Snapshot_1

After that we see that Suseri and her handmaiden whose name I can’t remember are watching.

So once the opening is over, we get this.

Snapshot_2

Ah she’s naked…this is getting too common.

So when Shin says that she put on some underwear she shows that she has been trying…with Sakuya’s underwear.

Now you all know that Tamako’s stacked and Sakuya’s not. That’s be the same thing as trying to stick a watermelon in one of those small produce bags they have at supermarkets. It’s just not possible. Although the attempt is funny.

So Sakuya tries to go for a classic tsundere slap but Shin’s got those instincts. He dodges like a hero but then he falls on top of her.

Snapshot_3

After that we see Shin cooking and then Sakuya comes in. Shin tries to apologize but Sakuya won’t take it.

Snapshot_4

They’re mine. Granted I haven’t had a date in a while. Dry spells are painful.

So Shin has enough of it and closes her in to talk.

Snapshot_5

Looks like he was about to say that he loves her and kiss her but Nadeshiko comes up and ruins the moment. So close.

Snapshot_6

So turns out that Shin’s getting a weapon to fight the Yokai. Finally he ain’t going to get owned all the time.

So the next day Shin and his friend are checking out the girls’ kendo team. Shin must be there to check out sword techniques…the other guy must be there for bouncing boobs. I’m more on the other guy’s side in this one.

So after school, Sakuya waits for Shin but she gets Suseri instead.

Snapshot_7

They have the conversation that now that Shin has a weapon he’ll be in the line of fire more than ever. The fact that Suseri is bringing this up means that she might have real feelings for Shin.

So we go to the subway and we see this.

Snapshot_8

Who’s that Pokemon?

Seven episode and it takes me this long to do that joke? What is wrong with me?

So our group goes down to the subway but it’s dark so it’s hard to see. Wait Tamako’s a cat so she can see in the dark.

Snapshot_9

Fail at being a cat…

So they reach the stopped train find that everyone’s unconscious. What happened?

So it’s our friend here, the smoke spirit.

Snapshot_8

Oh this is going to be interesting.

Seriously you’re trying to cut the air. It’s like trying to attack a ghost with a stick or going against a tank with a Nerf gun. It just doesn’t work and you look dumb doing it.

So the only logical move is to run!

Snapshot_14

But this spirit’s smarter than the average one. It cuts them off at the pass. So the only way to get out is to the vents to get suck out the smoke. Shin goes for it and get some respect from me. Not Arata or Minato from Sekirei level respect but something I can say he’s a C-level Harem Protagonist.

He goes right at the Smoke Spirit and turns on the ventilation system to get rid of the Smoke Spirit. Unfortunately he stops breathing. Come on bro don’t die after finally getting some awesome points.

Sakuya and the handmaiden’s who’s name can’t be remembered start giving some CPR while Suseri goes outside.

She sees the smoke spirit with that girl that’s been troubling us for the entire anime. You know what she does? She kills the smoke spirit and goes at the girl.

So after Shin’s back on her feet they go outside we see this.

Snapshot_15

See reckless. Even though she did it for a good reason it’s still reckless.

And with the girl with the stick says what her name is…

Snapshot_16

As in Sakuya’s true name?

And that’s enough to pull Sakuya to the limit and use the Final Sealing Technique of the Shimazu. It takes off Isuca’s arm but it looks like Sakuya passed out too.

Looks like we’ve moved into the final parts of this anime. I can’t wait until we reach the ending. Now things are getting interesting.

Snapshot_17

So until the next episode,

Koufuku Graffiti Episode 9: Mind on Suzuka and Nostalgic First Meetings

It’s been one year since they met. How have they changed during this year? I’m also totally seeing a lot of things that remind me of my favorite manga, Suzuka, here. Oh of they had made a full anime of it…

So we start the episode with Ryo cleaning the house so she starts the new year off right. Then Akira calls saying that’s she’ll finish work as as quickly as she can so she can spend New Year’s with her niece.

Snapshot_1

Aw that’s nice. Kirin’s choosing to spend her New Year’s with Ryo instead of her family. That’s nice of her.

So after Ryo hangs up, Akira says this.

Well Ryo’s not as alone as she used to be. And you’d be less alone if you showed up more! Still I like that that Akira wants to be with her niece on New Years instead of going out drinking or something else.

So after the opening, Ryo gets down to some serious business, cleaning!

Snapshot_5

Alright let’s clean! You go and clean Ryo-chan while I sit around and read Suzuka. I really wish they had copies of the manga in my local area. If I bought them online, they’d have to be delievered and my mother would look through them and assume that it’s something ecchi.

Note: Suzuka when printed in America is under the mature manga rating because the bath house scenes are uncensored

Anyway after a few hours of cleaning, everything and apparently she’s got some tips on how to clean, Ryo takes a bath because she’s the last thing left dirty.

After that we move over to what I think is Hiroshima(I so wish for it to be) where Kirin’s sitting around, relaxing under the kotatsu watching tv.

That’s right. The last thing you want to do is take transportation on a major holiday. It will be packed.

Despite that Kirin’s going to go on the 6 o’ clock

If you say so…

So we go back to Tokyo where Ryo’s going to the supermarket for some stuff for tonight’s dinner, New Year’s soba as well as some oden.

But while she’s looking around, we get this.

Snapshot_12

Someone please meme this so we have some funny Yuri sayings to go with this.

Anyway Ryo gets surprised and predictably falls on her butt. After they leave Ryo tries to invite Shiina over for New Year’s but she’s already got family stuff…and apparantly it’s dangerous…

So no Shiina again in this episode. I need Shiina! Give us more Shiina!

So we move over to Ryo back at home where she’s making the oden and she texts Kirin about it. She starts getting tempted to eat some…

Snapshot_16

She knows!

So the temptation is real and Ryo falls.

Don’t eat it all! Kirin hurry or you won’t get anything.

Snapshot_23

She’s practically already there…

So to get Kirin moving, Kirin’s mom says this.

Oooh scary old guy. And with that Kirin’s like the Flash and she’s already ready.

So while they’re driving to the station, Kirin’s mom asks if she got a ticket…and she didn’t.

Now tragically I have to admit I’ve had this logic before.

So because they live so far away from the city, Kirin thinks that it’s fine to go without a ticket…

Yeah let’s see how that goes.

Snapshot_26

See that’s why kids need adults. They think of the stuff they take for granted.

So now they’ve got to wait for the next train. Reminds me of the Hiroshima arc of Suzuka where Yamato and Suzuka get left by the train heading back to Tokyo so they stay with Yamato’s parents for a few days. I really like how they did the bellflower with the firefly confession thing.

….

Does anyone know what I’m talking about or am I the only Suzuka fan here?

Anyway so the next train doesn’t leave for another hour so she calls Ryo to explain.

And she’s sad that the oden and soba have to wait for her.

Snapshot_27

That’s right. That’s bad manners.

Also check this out.

Snapshot_28

I can’t get a good angle on it but I’m guessing because it only has four panels Ryo’s reading the Koufuku Graffiti manga. It’s a common thing in anime for the characters to read the manga that the anime is based on some times. Heck in Date A Live, Kotori reads Date A Live. Ponder that for a moment…

Anyway after getting off the phone with Kirin, Ryo goes out to the station to meet with her and flashes back to the first time she met her.

Now the Yuri-ness is high level here. There’s a lot of couples walking around and holding hands and Ryo’s thinking about a girl. I can read between the lines…

So after a few minutes Kirin comes and they try to make it home before New Years. However Ryo trips. Kirin notices her cold hands and does this.

Snapshot_33

True yuri is true beauty.

Totally Yuri. Granted what she’s smelling is probably the food smell on her.

Also did anyone notice that Ryo’s wearing a dress that ends at the mid thigh and Kirin’s wearing shorts in the middle of a Japanese winter?

So once they get home it’s time to dig in…and there’s no sexy eating scenes! Where are they? No close ups, no dramatic music, no super shining eyes. This isn’t what I signed on for!

So the clock counts down and New Year’s here so what does first thing that Ryo wants to do now that it’s the new year?

Snapshot_36

Eh?

Snapshot_37

That’s something I can get behind. So Ryo suggests going to the shrine. I think it’s called Hatsumode. It’s where you go to a shrine and offer up prayers for what you want your new year to bring. There’s occasionally snacks and games too.

So they try to leave out but looks like Akira manages to make it in time!

Snapshot_38

Looks like me after either a long reviewing session or a long writing session. Screw it she looks like look all the time…sad it isn’t.

Anyway after a cute as I don’t know what cheek rub to both Kirin and Ryo, Akira, Ryo, and Kirin get going to the neighborhood shrine.

Snapshot_40

That’s nice.

So while they walk by, Akira gets called out to by some old friends and gets drinking…

Then again Ryo and Kirin can’t talk since they’re drinking some amasake which is non-alcohol sake. It’s quite sweet apparently and served warm.

Snapshot_41

It’s been what two or three minutes and she’s wasted. What’s the Japanese equalavent to AA?

So Ryo and Kirin head home where they eat up the last of the oden and soba. They start to remember when they first met and they say even though they’re going to grow up they still want to be able to share meals together like this.

Now isn’t that just sweet. I really like that because drift away from each other as they grow up. However these two want to still stay together.

So the next day Ryo takes Kirin back to the station and says by until next week.

Snapshot_46

And with that the episode’s over. Pretty good episode but I really want some more Shiina. Come on she’s a main character yet she’s only getting a little time each episode.

464VAZQ

So that’s another good episode gone and Koufuku Graffiti counting down to its final 3 episodes. What do you think is going to happen next? Will we finally know who that lady is that lives under Ryo?

Until the next episode,

Koufuku Graffiti Episode 8:Cooking Kirin

It seems that we’ve got a shift in the dynamic in the show. Now we’re seeing more of Kirin cooking

So we got this at the episode…

Noobs. Watch a master at eating sexily.

Learn from the master! So after the opening we have Kirin throwing volleyballs at Ryo. Why? Preparing for field day!

Ryo asked for a crash course so she’d be ready. Let’s see how she’s doing.

Snapshot_9

It’s okay Ryo-chan. You weren’t meant to do physical activities. You were meant to be cute and cook cutely.

Hmm I see why you hate it. But you were soo freaking adorable.

So while Ryo can’t do field day it gives Kirin something help here with since apparently she’s very in shape. Wow all this time I thought she was short and flat chested. Turns out she’s just compact…ahahahaha that’s what all short folk say.

Anyway turns out that Field Day is going to be on Sunday so that day Ryo isn’t going to be going to cram school. So Kirin’s going alone…wait Shiina’s going to be there.

I’m beginning to see not really arcs but more of shifts in the anime. The first part was Ryo and Kirin getting to know each other. That was the winter. Then during the spring and summer they got close to Shiina. Now it’s the fall, now the three of them are close enough friends where they want to cook for each other.

It’s also showing a shift in Ryo and Kirin’s dynamic. It used to be Ryo doing all the cooking but now in the last two episodes, Ryo hasn’t cooked at all. It’s been all Kirin or Shiina. I think this is good personally.

Anyway we move to the next day at Ryo’s school.

Snapshot_13

Aw her middle school is way better than mine’s was. They tell her that starting this year the students will have to bring their lunches for field day as opposed to in the past where the school gave them lunch.

Looks like Ryo’s going to have whip up one of her awesome lunches.

They aren’t that far off the mark…

So after school, we see this lady…

Snapshot_16

Who is she damn it!? It’s been eight episode and we still don’t know nothing! She just appears in between scenes.

Anyway Ryo’s home, looking at the letter they sent home explaining the lunch thing. She flashs back to when she was younger and her grandma made her lunch for field day.

The feels…

So remembering that Kirin offered to make her lunch, Ryo makes a list of the things that she wants for lunch. However she realizes what’s she’s asking for is a bit too much for someone that’s still learning how to cook so she throws the list away.

However…

Snapshot_20

Why is it always that people find stuff like this at the middle of the night going to the bathroom?

So the next day instead of hanging out with Ryo and Shiina, Kirin heads straight back home.

I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t be rushing home to this. Shoot I’d stay in Tokyo as long as possible. I think she might live in Hiroshima or somewhere like it. Mostly because it takes only a few hours on the bullet train to get from Hiroshima to Tokyo.

I’m probably getting this from Suzuka but hey I could be right or wrong so don’t quote me on that.

So Kirin talks with her mom about Ryo and her grandma and turns out that Kirin’s Mom is Ryo’s Grandma’s niece. So…let’s see…

If Kirin’s Mom is Ryo’s Grandma’s niece that makes Kirin’s Grandma and Ryo’s Grandma sisters. So Kirin’s mom and Ryo’s Mom and aunt are cousins and that means that Kirin and Ryo are 2nd cousin.

So Kirin says that she’s going to ask her Dad to help her learn how to cook all the stuff Ryo wants. Wait your mom’ sitting right there. Why don’t you ask her?

Poor Mom can’t even cook…

So when Kirin gets to Ryo’s place, she does this…

EH? But Ryo’s not ready for such a beautiful act such yuri.

Turns out she’s just changing into her running clothes so they can practice for Field Day.

And when they go into the supermarket, Kirin reveals that she found Ryo’s lunch list and she’s going to make everything on it even though she’s not very good at cooking.

Just trust her Ryo. That’s all you need to do.

So once they get home, Kirin kicks Ryo out of the kitchen so her lunch can be a surprise.

Snapshot_32

And the next morning, it begins with the 3rd year 100 meter dash…what’s a meter? I’m from America. We don’t do your fancy metric system!

Anyway…

Ryo starts, remembering how Kirin helped her and even made her lunch for her. With that Ryo feels like she can do anything!

Wow she looks like she’ll win…

But she couldn’t and dead last. Now that’s funny how they made it look like she was winning but then we see that she epically failed.

So after the race, one of Ryo’s friends notices that she looks tired and turns out that Ryo stayed up all night to make sure Kirin didn’t hurt herself while cooking.

Aw that’s nice. And now it’s time for lunch so we’ll see if Kirin failed or not.

Snapshot_42

So while her friends are wondering who made her lunch, we switch to Kirin and Shiina. Turns out that Kirin messed up alot while making Ryo’s lunch so she and Shiina are eating the messes.

Then we switch back to Ryo where they start eating.

So cute.

So then after seeing all of cute reactions, her friends want to have some too.

Noobs. You can’t do sexy eating without practicing!

Snapshot_53

It’s not good.

Snapshot_54

It only tastes good to Ryo because it was made by someone she loves. And it tastes so good that she does this.

Snapshot_55

Now that’s nice but this is funny.

I think that Ryo has some issues with halluncinations…

So after the Field Day Ryo meets Kirin while she’s walking home and Kirin apologizes for making a horrible lunch. But Ryo says that it was delicious.

And the episode ends with Kirin leaving for home while Ryo thanks her for the lunch again.

Snapshot_60

I can’t wait for the next episode. We’ve been seeing alot of a change of the dynamics between the girls. I hope that we see a bit more of Shiina next episode.

So until the next episode,

Let’s Look: Isuca Episode 6: Why Isn’t A Cat Fine Too, Shin?

I have to know damnit! Why don’t you choose Tamako?! A Cat is fine too, Shin!!!

Does anyone know what I’m talking about? Anyone? Laugh in the comments if you get the reference.

So in this episode we finally get the truth of the Shimazu family as well as the reason that Sakuya didn’t want Shin to find out her true name.

So during the episode while at school, Nadeshiko explains that Sakuya runs the possibility of losing her shot at being the heir because remember when you learn someone’s true name and say it they are under your command. That just doesn’t work for someone that’s the leader of a family of Yokai hunters.

Snapshot_1

Rejoice Shinchiro! You screwed up Sakuya’s one chance at happiness.

So after school this is one thing that gets me.

Snapshot_2

There’s no subtext. She ran right at him naked. And…I can’t even call him my man because he can’t even come close to Arata from Trinity Seven! He isn’t worthy to be in the same room. Still an okay guy just not as good as Arata.

Still why can’t he like Tamako? A cat’s fine too!

So the next day Shin talks with Suseri about the situation and she basically says the following “Forget my sister and give me all your power”

Snapshot_3

As a harem protagonist he’s borderline legally bound to say no but still…working with Suseri would be better for him on his side. She’s hot, physically…attractive(she’s freaking stacked for someone’s that’s only around 15 or 16), and she’s relatively calm. If you cut out that, reckless streak she’d be perfect. However I like the fact that Shin’s sticking with Sakuya despite all the benefits he could get from Suseri.

So after school Shin and Sakuya go home but she gets frustrated with him following her but finally decides to accept the current events.

She explains her past about her family. Turns out that she’s kid of a Western Mage and a woman from the Shimazu. The Shimazu to make sure that they keep getting more powerful in their magic and techniques…they keep in it the family.

Yes I mean it like that.

It’s probably more like 2nd and 3rd cousins marrying so it’s nothing extreme like that.

So once they get home, they get this cool mirror. Wait a second…how did Tamako sign for it? She doesn’t have a last name!

Snapshot_10

Sakuya and Shin get pulled in and have to fight against the darkness inside Sakuya’s heart. Sakuya has just had it rough. Hated by her family, her parents missing, no one will tell her what happened. She’s always been alone…

This is actually a pretty good fight. It actually shows a lot of Sakuya’s power and her real feelings. It’s definitely an internal battle. The actual attacks mean very little. This battle is more so Sakuya can accept the hatred she has in her heart for the head family as well as admit to herself that she’s alone.

Sakuya manages to win the fight by Shin kissing Dark Sakuya and finding out the Spirit’s true name.

After that they get kicked out of the mirror and walk home. Shin swears that he’ll help Sakuya find her parents. Nice of him. And the big part is that Sakuya starts allowing Shin to call her by first name. That’s a big step in friendships in Japan.

I think that we have something here. Not a legendary harem anime but something that has its own niche. Not super good but something deserves at least one view.

So we’ve got something good out of this episode. Let’s hope that we stay on this road.

So until the next episode,
Later Days
