Some part of me wants this to be the “prequel” to K-On! that we should have gotten instead of K-On, the tale of the “Death Devils” instead of HTT (K-On’s OP and ED were so much “heavier” than the in-show HTT songs; they lied).

Edit: it was meh.

She actually sleeps in those headphones? HOW?

And you have to be lazy to have cats think you are. :stuck_out_tongue:

:laugh:

[details=spoiler]She does EVERYTHING in those head phones!

Actually, the character is the mascot for Nitroplus. Saw this on Wiki - “Super Sonico is the mascot of Nitroplus’ annual music festival event, “Nitro Super Sonico”, since 2006. Nitroplus has held their music festival every year since 2000.”

I suppose that is why the headphones are so important for her character. But it must make hearing very hard! LOL

I also wonder if her manager ever takes his mask off. That is another oddity![/details]

The endings are worth it to watch this show, because you never know what you are going to get. (Witchcraft Works ending still best though)

Ep. 02

I wasn’t too sure what to expect from this one, but as it turns out, I’m actually rather enjoying it.

Ep. 04

That was sad in a rather heartwarming sort of way.

I wonder if Sonico actually got to see Tomano’s little note she left at the end.

Ep. 06


Man this episode was great!

Though I think the most amusing part about it was the ED, and the whole “Thriller” dancing.

Episode 10 -

[details=spoiler]Sonico’s cats sure lead interesting lives! Their only real job is waking Sonico up in the mornings. I’m not too crazy about the new addition though. Rice seems to have a bit of a mean streak. He also doesn’t want to be there, but maybe he has a good reason.

One day, Rice manages to run away, but Sonico might also lose the rest of her friends with the way she left the door open as she ran after Rice. But they seem to want to help find Rice as well. It turns out that Rice already belongs to someone else.

The other five cats are more successful than Sonico and find Rice cornered by a dog. They run to protect him, and guide Rice back to Sonico. Sonico brings him back to his owner and finds out his name is Cream. The owner also has Cream’s mother. No wonder he wanted to get out of Sonico’s apartment so badly. The little guy also ends up thanking the other five cats in his own kitty way – and he comes back to visit. Such a sweet, heartwarming episode! I also enjoyed the ending song very much. The little Sonico cat was way too cute![/details]

Ep. 07

I loved this episode!

Slow paced and nothing of import actually happened, but it gave me the “feels”.
I love when an episode comes together like that!

Only thing missing for me to enjoy this episode was the why she started that little journey?

Episode 8 is a parody of Case Closed? They’re using the same suspect silhouette. If I have time, I might catch up on CR

The notebook that the train guy gives her is her lyrics notebook. She’s traveling around to get ideas for songs.
