Posted by psgels on 27 March 2009 with categories: Genji Monogatari Sennenki



Short Synopsis: Genji and Murasaki finally hook up together.
Episode Rating: 8/10 (Excellent)
And so another series has finished. While a straightforward ending (it basically involves Genji being down because of the sin he committed, him being attacked by a bunch of bandits and finally his realization that Murasaki is ‘more’ than a younger sister to him), it was a very effective one, and just like any other episode of this series an emotional ride.

It’s a shame that this one never got subbed, but then again that was to be expected considering how little attention Osamu Dezaki’s previous work (Ultraviolet) received. It’s a real shame, because this guy really knows how to make optimal use of visuals and sound to tell a story. And I really have to say that each episode of this series was effective, and set out exactly what it wanted to do.

In any case, I’m looking forward to the next instalment of Noitamina. I have absolutely no idea what it’s going to be, since I’ve been avoiding all spring previews in order to not get too hyped about it, but it’s probably going to be something completely different again. In any case, thanks for all the tips and corrections from those who read the original novel.

    Huh. Well, they just cut off the story there, huh? There goes half the book. (we didn’t even get to see Genji’s exile and his hook-up with the Akashi Lady, who bears him his only daughter)

    Oh, and as for your previous post, yes Genji’s son with Fujitsubo will become Emperor. It’s just Genji’s older brother was Crown Prince first. So the elder brother became Emperor, and Genji’s son became Crown Prince.

    I think it is being subbed, just slowly.

    I think It is currently being subbed by Liive-eVIL. The first episode has been out, and the bit about Genji being second in line for the throne (which he isn’t) is corrected from another version.

    I love the scene with Genji and Murasaki sleeping together. It’s a clear contrast to the rest of the erotic scenes of him and other ladies. Like Murasaki and Genji’s love is not that sensual but is deep and purer. However, I found that bandit scene out of place and I don’t know why it is included. I hope the subbed version will make the significance of this scene clear.

    Can someone explain to me if Genji loves Fujitsubo. I’ve watched up till episode 5 and part of 11 and I was wondering what Genji thinks. I always thought he had a thing for Fujitsubo and that was the focus of the anime, but did he not love her and loved Murasaki later in the end? Also, what happens after he gets exiled?

    @Ratsgnof, Yep. Exactly that. Thats how Netflix does things. So you can watch the entirety of relife now.

    ….well. I guess blogging relife episode by episode will be impossible. Seeing…as the entire series is out now. Netflix, I am not sure if this is a blessing or a curse.

    I don’t have any quarrels with anyone in my neighborhood including my landlord, just with that guy from two days ago. This kind of thing doesn’t happen in my area at all and it’s all too suspicious to mark it off as a simple prank by some random punk. But nothing I can do but bitch about it now.

    @Bam Of course I cut it, but only after the cops looked at it. The person who ziptied my mailbox is most definitely the neighbor that I “cut off” on my bicycle two nights ago.

    @K-off: wait, somebody ziptied your mailbox? Can’t you just cut it then? Also, how is that related to the car situation?

    On a lighter note, Tokyo Sessions feels like a watered down Persona title. The Mirage system is so weak. It throws the balance off especially during poor matchups.

    To the asshat that ziptied my mailbox and called the PD just because I cut you off since you were tailgating me in a 25 mph zone last night – fuck you. God dammit this year is full of bullshit. Now I have to file a police report which I’m reluctant to waste my time on since there’s no evidence to prove what the fuckface did.

Well, we don’t usually give a review on the first cour of anime show, given the fact that the second part will air next autumn season. But since I’m not certain I would cover its second half, plus I don’t think this series will improve itself, I might as well give Bungou Stray Dogs a […]

Kiznaiver Review – 60/100

Kiznaiver is a very different faire from Studio Triggers other works in that it takes a more serious tone and has a writer who tends to go more for the melodramatic. This is a tale about a group of very different people gathered together and have their pain linked to one another. In an effort […]

This was certainly pure narrative confusion at it’s zenith and in that regard I don’t mean that the events depicted were hard to understand but rather a general confusion on what mood it wants to go out on. In this episode we had comedic, drama and climatic showdown all hastily weaved together to try and […]

And we get to the end of Bungou Stray Dogs, but this last episode doesn’t offer any conclusive ending, instead feel more like a set up episode for the next season. This last episode functions like a typically Bungou Stray Dogs’ episode; there are many good things to say about it, mainly the technical triumphs […]

Mayoiga Review – 78/100

Mayoiga has to be one of the most misunderstood shows in recent years. On a surface, the premise alone has a lot of potential.

Upon finishing yet another rather uneventful episode of Joker Game, I began to wonder just what this series had planned for its finale. “How best to top off a rather mediocre series such as this?” I thought to myself. However when looking over general consensus over the episode I found out that I seen the […]

Stella Glow Game Review-60/100

I really should be getting Grand Kingdom or waiting for Mirage Sessions.

I somehow managed to get through Lord of […]

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir Game Review – 87/100

Oh my. This game was just utterly, utterly incredible when it came out, so despite disliking the usual remasters (ahem, Valkyria Chronicles), I was pretty stoked when I learned I’d be able to play this again on better hardware. It came out really late into the PS2’s lifetime in 2007, so at the time, I […]
