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

Maid Dragon and Konosuba2 6, Seiren 7

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon 6 continues with the running theme of friends and intimacy, often inappropriate. First we get a scene where Saikawa invites Kanna over, and Kanna brings Kobayashi and Tohru, where we get a lot of bonding over maids (another one pops up), plus a strange moment of intimacy between Kanna and … Continue reading Maid Dragon and Konosuba2 6, Seiren 7

Maid Dragon and KonoSuba 5, Seiren 6

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon 5 is a pleasant series of little bits, the best being Tohru sneaking in to watch Kobayashi at work. I'm not a fan of the outward sentimentality some of the scenes give us but here it's restrained to an early moment (Kobayashi wondering how she was before Tohru came along) … Continue reading Maid Dragon and KonoSuba 5, Seiren 6

ACCA-13 4-5, Maid Dragon and KonoSuba2 4, Seiren 5

ACCA-13 4 feels like a "district of the week" type of episode, where Jean goes to a place, sees a problem and then ... doesn't do much. Well, he'll do what he can, like giving Warbler low scores so he'll get to stay in Suitsu, but other than that he's basically a sometimes-kidnapped bystander, observing, … Continue reading ACCA-13 4-5, Maid Dragon and KonoSuba2 4, Seiren 5

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

Seiren 2, Youjo Senki 2-3, Demi-chan and LWA 2

Catching up with second, okay, and the third week, starting with Seiren, where we left our hero Shouichi getting freaked out by a girl crawling into his bedroom late at night. Turns out to be Tsuneki, of course. Her parents threw her into this study camp and she tried to escape. Soon Shouichi is lending … Continue reading Seiren 2, Youjo Senki 2-3, Demi-chan and LWA 2
