I hereby present my wrap-up post for shows that ended this March. It’s way too late I know. I was quite surprised and overwhelmed myself while writing the post because I just realized that I indeed watched 11 shows simultaneously last season — it didn’t seem like that.

This cover includes the following shows: Another, Guilty Crown, Natsume Yuujinchou Shi, Nisemonogatari, Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou, Persona 4, Chihayafuru,  Ano Natsu de Matteru, Papa no Iu Koto wo Kikinasai, Shakugan no Shana S3, Zero no Tsukaima: F

Spoilers everywhere. You’ve been warned. For the walls of texts.

The first chapter of the volume never had an impending feeling about the tragedy that will befall the characters playing the virtual game. Although there were hints of how Kirito, the main character, is regretful of some things as he began explaining the exposition and the current status of the game, none of it was particularly referring to something. I thought it was a bit weird that the description of the battle during the first part was a bit overdone in such a way that it’s as if it was a matter of life and death despite being a mere virtual game and true enough, it really was. I honestly think that the foreshadowing done during the early chapters was excellent.

As for someone who really likes the experience of playing MMORPGs, the idea of Sword Art Online was very fascinating because every now and then, I’m still missing the experience I had during the times that I have played several titles. Actually, I try to relive those days from time to time whenever I miss them during the holidays.

I don’t know if this will turn out a bit technical but I’ll try my best not to (or at least explain through layman’s terms). I have to say as well that this representation in [C] is rather weird. I am well aware of how bad IMF’s reputation is to developing countries because of the disparity in the bargaining power of the developing country to what IMF/US demands as a compensation for the loans and debts that they provide as a form of assistance to the countries. This is why it was quite surprising that one of the good guys (well, I consider her as one) actually came from IMF. I know that I’m biased but because of this, it’s as if IMF has become a great institution all of a sudden (which up until now, I still can’t seem to accept!).

I honestly think that the show was vague during the last episodes due to the fast pace but I guess it was just reasonable for a show showcasing the world economy, considering the minute and ever changing prices of not only stocks but also commodities. Time is of the essence after all, if we are talking about trading stocks.
