Overdrive: I’ve never seen a show drag like this ever before. Naruto looks like the frickin’ Shinkansen in comparision. Sure shounen shows are more or less supposed to drag, it’s their bread and butter after all but this is just getting ridiculous, and as if they’re trying to drive home a point half of episode 23 was an omake, completely unrelated to the story! Granted, it was pretty amusing but I so much rather see what’s going on in the race.
Kimikiss: I’m not sure what to make of this show yet. It pendles from being pretty good to some plain old cringe material. The would be lead couple and the damn frogs, owners included, are responsible for most of the cringing though and whenever they’re not on screen I’d say it’s more than a decent watch. I find it funny how Kazuki, who I from episode one thought would be the typical comical relief sidekick, and Eriko, who I immediately deemed to be the stuck up bitch character, has turned out to be my two favourite characters of the show. Kazuki because he’s actually trying to move forward and Eriko because she turned out not to be the ice queen she first seemed, instead she’s just a bit, eh, unaccustomed to socializing with people.
