A15 Ep. 12/12Show
Actually, it's Flameu who forgets her promise.
It's fine that she finds the promise back.
The only thing not so good is, Logy has to leave.

The protagonists of A16 have appeared in the last. It seems that Escha is still single by the time of A16.
B&S Ep. 13/13Show
Extra episode: When well-endowed females become goddesses. For fanservice.

No, I get stuck.

Initial D Final Stage eps. 03 and 04Show
Ep. 3:
- Takumi is visibly shocked as Shinji gives up the lead, for this means only one thing: Shinji is confident that he can reclaim the lead from Takumi. But while Shinji does overtake Takumi later on, Takumi becomes even more determined to win. And like he did before in his battle against Mako and Sayuri, Takumi manages to observe his opponent's driving technique and stick uncomfortably close to his opponent's pace.

Now it's Shinji's turn to feel the pressure.

Ep. 4 (END):
- With Takumi deducing the weakness in Shinji's driving technique, he manages to pull off his signature "Blind Attack" and overtakes Shinji. But pulling off this move has weakened the grip on the front tires of Takumi's AE86, causing understeer--and Shinji notices this. Shinji seizes the opportunity to overtake Takumi...to the shock of the latter's friends from the Akina Speed Stars.

However, Takumi has one last card to play...but to do so, he has to get alongside Shinji somehow. Takumi uses the Blind Attack one last time, gets alongside Shinji (despite the narrow course) and goes full throttle. But upon opening his headlights after the final corner, Takumi discovers he has revved the engine too high...and the engine blows, putting his car in a spin.

Unfazed, Takumi disengages the clutch and uses the momentum to freewheel backwards...allowing him to cross the finish line ahead of Shinji. It's mission accomplished for Project D...but it is also the last race for Takumi's trusty AE86. (Still an awesome sendoff, though.)

On a final note, it was amusing to see the new Toyota 86 (a red one, to boot!) pass by Takumi during his routine tofu run (in his dad's Subaru Impreza). I wonder what it would be like if Takumi drove the new 86?
Kanojo ga Flag o Oraretara ep. 13 (END)Show
Now I recall how the teacher is involved in all of this...when Souta was shown an alternate world (ep. 6 or 7) where he doesn't exist when the Premium Ambriel sinking happened.

Well, I remember saying before that Kanojo ga Flag o Oraretara might be a worthwhile watch...I take it back now. -_- With the show trying to cram too many elements (RPG tropes, cute girls/unwanted harem, and pinches of mystery and dystopian sci-fi to name a few) into the narrative, it's kinda hard to digest the show in one go.
Waiting on Soul Eater Not! ep. 12.

^ Something different.
Captain Earth Ep. 13Show
It seems that Baku is stronger in his dream.
Brynhildr Ep. R13/13Show
Quite a rush that changes a lot:
- Kotori ejects herself.
- Mako is finished in a flash.
- And a lot more.
At least the ending is within range.

An OVA will be available at 2014.09.24.

Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara Ep. 13(Last)Show
Thought Sword Art Online in a moment.

Last boss was defeated. Souta reentered Quest Dorm.

Is this series Fantasy? It's too difficult to comprehend this series.

Soul Eater Not! ep. 12 (END)Show
Tsugumi having Soul Resonance with both Anya and Meme? In a way, that solves the problem of who Tsugumi has to choose...even if something like this has played out in other anime before.

Still an enjoyable show nonetheless. And the call forwards/continuity nods to the main Soul Eater storyline (Sid's death, Death the Kid's partnership with Patty and Liz) were a nice touch--without stealing the spotlight from the main characters of Not!.

Flag Ep. R13/13Show
First girl wins.
But since Nanami has a special position, guess who is the correct one.

Although it's somehow in a rush.
M3 Ep. 11Show
The bad news: Sasame is also infected.
The good news: Akashi is willing to save her.
Black Bullet Ep. 13/13Show
A painful victory.
Kisara has become the demon of revenge. This leaves Enju as Rentarou's final support.

To continue with more little girls lost, or to stay here, it's a problem.
