Super Recaps: Yuri Kuma Arashi (Episode 8)

We getting close to the end of this twisted little series, and it’s been on an upward swing for a while now!  Can the show maintain the momentum it’s built up for the past few episodes, or will all this build-up be for naught once everything is said and done?  Let’s find out!! The episode begins where the last one left off.  Kureha has just discovered that Ginko is her friend from long ago, but notices that she’s wearing her mother’s necklace and now wants answers.  Before Ginko can explain herself, we get a flashback to twenty years ago where a bear was left on the school steps.  GEE!  I WONDER WHO IT COULD POSSIBLY BE!!

Super Recaps: Yuri Kuma Arashi (Episode 7)

We’re back with another episode of Three’s Company 2015!  Will Kureha and the two bears finally start to get along?  Will Ginko’s heroic gesture be enough to win over Kureha’s heart?  After the explosive finale of the last episode, this one has a lot of clean up to do to make sure that what happened last time actually has some impact further down the road.  Does the show continue to move forward, or will it lose itself again now that the big midseason event has passed?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with a flashback to when Kureha’s mother was still alive and she seems to be writing the ending to the book she didn’t finish.  Spoiler alert: The two broke the mirror, made their promise kiss, and lived happily ever after.  Kureha asks her mother what the new story is about and she tells the young child that it’s about her adventures with the friend that she made.

“You know!  That bear that you found on that battlefield!  What were you doing there anyway?”

Super Recaps: Sailor Moon Crystal (Episode 18)

We’re back with another episode of Dark of the Black Moon!  For the past few weeks, we’ve basically had the same story but they’ve used that time to give some development to the Scouts who AREN’T princesses which I guess makes them less important.  Still, the formula seems to have gotten stale already and we running out of Sailor Scouts to kidnap.  Will Minako get kidnapped like the other three Scouts, or will they finally be able to take the offensive against the Black Moon clan who’s been kicking their asses on a regular basis for the last three episodes?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with the remaining members of Team Sailor Moon mourning the loss of Sailor Jupiter to the evil machinations of the Black Moon.  How bad have things gotten for them?  They actually give Artemis some screen time!
