Between the Sky and Sea Episode 12: Space Fishing I guess.

I’d originally planned to get this post up sooner, but have been delaying it for a couple of reasons. The more obvious one being time, between the 12 Days posts and Christmas/New Year I’ve just not had the time to get around to writing this one. The more significant reason though is that I’m honestly struggling to come up with anything to actually say about this episode. As a finale to 11 episodes of dithering around in circles it was honestly pretty functional. But functional isn’t great when I have zero investment in any of the characters.

At least it was unintentionally funny.

Harsh

This episode felt like it was meant to be one of the emotional high points of the series. It very much wasn’t. Continue reading “Between the Sky and Sea episode 9: Mehstival.”

After the lukewarm excitement of last week’s space escapades things came tumbling back down to earth again this week. With the show having fulfilled its vague space fishing quota for a while we’re back to the individual character focus episodes again. This time it’s… Oh no.

Between the Sky and Sea episode 6: Still not in space

At long last there’s a second Scottish anime character

Week six and I’m starting to wonder if this lot will ever actually do any space fishing. On the plus side the show finally broke free from the Namino black hole; she only half started a fight this time!
