Gosick Episode #19 Review

Gosick spends a lot of its time in the past and that is actually turning into a frustrating point for me as the series progresses. Victorique’s past, and that of her mother, figures heavily into her present but over the course of the series, perhaps in how it’s been presented in this weekly format, comes across as an awkward smattering and unfocused narrative that continually introduces more material without really tying it together well. With this episode, things open with the coming of the first snow of the season in Saubure and Kazuya is thrilled to finally see it since it’s apparently the first one he’s ever seen. What he learns though is that Christmas itself is the same day as Victorique’s birthday, so he muses about how he has to get both a birthday present and a Christmas present for her.
