So it’s that time of year again where I am legally obligated to point out how long this particular blog has lasted. It’s now reached the point where in many nations I would now be qualified for citizenship for simply being able to hold down a job and not commit any crimes that would see me deported. The caveat to that being that I’m working in the aniblog fast food joint washing dishes while others who emigrated with me are now captains of industry.* That’s enough for the depressing bits in this post (and the many other drafts that are far worse than that you will not see). Instead, I’m going to keep things simple with five things I’ve learned since this blog started.
So this 12 Days thing is running near a close, so I thought I would actually do something most people do with this sort of topic, actually write about 12 moments in anime that occurred this year. I know, really original, right? So I’ll try to avoid some stuff I’ve gone on-and-on about over the course of this series of posts and limit myself to one thing per month. Can I pull it off? Find out below.
This week’s final episode of Koichoco had Yuuki running around answering pay phones on election day as the time to give his speech nearly comes and goes. At the same time, the mystery of the photos Kana took in the opening minutes of the series is solved. Yuuki manages to rescue Chisato before eventually giving something vaguely resembling an election speech. He wins the election, the Food Research Club is saved and everyone seems happy,
The 11th episode of Koichoco allowed super-agent Yuuki to partner with Michiru to complete a rescue of Kana before getting married to Chisato. There was also the matter of a bit of sad girl crying bonding between Chisato and Mifuyu. In addition, Yuuki has also taken the lead in the presidential polls, but that comes at a price. Finally, in a rather bizarre disclosure, ludicrous amounts of money pass through the school illegally. If none of this makes sense, you aren’t alone.
The 10th episode of Koichoco finally brought the series back to the mystery which opened the first episode. In the process, it had to go through Yuuki and Chisato’s relationship hitting the pointy rocks near shore. Then, it went to the mystery behind Michiru’s broken harmonica, which then led Yuuki into the darkest of the secrets of the Public Safety Commission. All the while, my interest was taken up by minor details that had nothing to do with the plot whatsoever. It was that kind of episode.
