I really am going to write a post on Phantom, but honestly, Bakemonogatari 12 is far and away the best episode of ANYTHING I've seen all year.
Perhaps even for the past few years. Whilst I really appreciated about 10 minutes of the last episode of Code Geass a lot, and Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo is quite magical too, NOTHING comes close to this.( Collapse )
p.s. I'm finding the various translations that are being used for tsukkomi (references, retorts etc) rather amusing... It IS kinda difficult to explain...
p.p.s. My DVD has been shipped! I need a Blu-ray player and HD screen!!
p.p.p.s. The screen text at the beginning of this episode also ups the ante (^_^) especially if you read it after seeing the episode in its entirety at least once before.
