Demi-chan finale, Academia 12

Demi-chan wa Kataritai 12 finishes the season with another low-key episode, well, it's a swimsuit episode, but apart from that, apart from a quick summing-up from Takahashi at the end, it feels like any other episode. Hikari wants to swim in the outdoor pool and just about everyone else shows up. Even those side-boys do … Continue reading Demi-chan finale, Academia 12

Seiren, LWA and Demi-chan 11, Youjo Senki 10

Seiren 11 starts with Kyouko nearly getting hit by a truck, only to be rescued by Shouichi. She proceeds to give him some underpants that she knitted herself, and then forces him to go underwear shopping for her. A typically strange series of events that ranks as par for this franchise. Alas, the rest of … Continue reading Seiren, LWA and Demi-chan 11, Youjo Senki 10

Youjo Senki 9, Seiren, Demi-chan, Academia 10

Youjo Senki 9 begins preparation for a major operation that I'm sure will end up as a victory next week, alas. You know, why aren't the forces allied against the empire thinking up fiendish plots of their own. The only fun to be had this week is the sheer absurdity of the strategy. The empire … Continue reading Youjo Senki 9, Seiren, Demi-chan, Academia 10

Seiren 9, Youjo Senki 8, Demi-chan and LWA 9

Though the last arc improved the average, Seiren still hasn't reached the heights of its predecessor, but in episode 9 I realized that this show has an advantage: it can use Amagami itself. In a flashback, during a strange gender-swapping display by the very young Shouichi, we see Junichi in the background, possibly being stood … Continue reading Seiren 9, Youjo Senki 8, Demi-chan and LWA 9

Eights: Seiren, Demi-chan, Little Witch Academia

Seiren 8 finishes off the Miyamae arc by pretty much ignoring gaming altogether and switching to cosplay. Maybe this is supposed to represent a change in Miyamae's priorities, but I think rather that they wanted to get her in a sexy deer outfit with a zipper she can't locate but Shouichi can. I could also … Continue reading Eights: Seiren, Demi-chan, Little Witch Academia

Sevens: Demi-chan, Academia, ACCA-13

Demi-chan wa Kataritai 7 brings us two new characters who I hope will not be seen again. First, we get Ugaki, a police detective assigned to demi issues, he and his very young assistant, Kurtz, come to the school unannounced, don't check in, and wander around looking suspicious. There's no reason for them to be … Continue reading Sevens: Demi-chan, Academia, ACCA-13

Youjo Senki 6 and recap, Demi-chan, Academia and ACCA 6

Youjo Senki 6 gave me the information I was curious about: where are all the aircraft and how to they fit into battle with mages. The answer is they can fly higher than mages (except for Tanya) and can carry heavier things, like bombs. When you do have a mage that can match their altitude, … Continue reading Youjo Senki 6 and recap, Demi-chan, Academia and ACCA 6

FIves: Youjo Senki, Demi-chan, Academia

Youjo Senki 5 is full of people who disappoint our little Tanya by exceeding expectations. After failing most of the recruits for her battalion to stall for time, she is ordered to lower her standards. She says she can train them in a month if she puts them through hell, figuring that the men would … Continue reading FIves: Youjo Senki, Demi-chan, Academia

KonoSuba2 3, Youjo Senki, Seiren, Demi-chan and Academia 4

KonoSuba2 3 has Kazuma's gang getting first dibs on an unexplored bit of dungeon, so off they go. Unfortunately it's not the best episode because Darkness is still in that lord's lair, and since Megumin's explosion magic isn't practical underground they leave her at the entrance, making dramatic gestures to her cat. That leaves Kazuma … Continue reading KonoSuba2 3, Youjo Senki, Seiren, Demi-chan and Academia 4

ACCA, Maid-Dragon, KonoSuba2 2, Seiren and Demi-chan 3

ACCA-13 2 has the political intrigue moving along, gently, unnoticed to Jean, or so it seems. Grossular, the leader of the Five Chief Officers, either thinks Jean is plotting a coup or wants to set Jean up as a fall guy. Whatever the reason, it means Jean is being tailed. Jean notices this but seems … Continue reading ACCA, Maid-Dragon, KonoSuba2 2, Seiren and Demi-chan 3
