Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei continues the trend of focusing on the minutia for its humour with this week both Isuzu and Subaru getting called on fairly petty things by minor characters.
Once again, Space Battleship Tiramisu proves itself baffling in the way it handles plot.

The tension of whether Subaru will survive or not isn't exactly mounting in this final episode of the season. Well any hope I had for this series has effectively come crashing to an end, and not just because of … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 13: A Dramatic Re-Entry But No Conclusion
When things go wrong for a series, it is sometimes good to return to your roots. Unfortunately, it doesn't work here given the story had pushed on a bit and now Subaru just getting OCD about dirt is kind of a weak consolation prize. Apparently we have one episode left to go which really isn't … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 12: Back to Jokes About Dirty Cockpits
