In terms of the overall story Eizouken ni wa Te wo Dasu na! 3 continues the show's slow pace--only a couple of scenes that have to do with getting recognized as a club, but at least this idea prompts them into actual anime production mode, which of course means more flights of animated fantasy as … Continue reading Eizoken 3-4, Oshibudo 3, Rikekoi 3-4
Now to continue with the shows I might watch. It's a long list so I need to pare it down. However, I doubt that I'll be cutting Magia Record. In episode 2 Iroha, her memory returned, though Kyubey suggests it might be false, returns to Kamihama to check out the hospital where she thinks Ui … Continue reading Twos: Magia Record, Eizouken, Bofuri, Oshibudo

The first one involves Yuu, Touko, and Sayaka bathing together and sharing the same room. Since Sayaka … Continue reading Yagate Kimi and IndexIII 11, Akanesasu finale
The preview for next week's Yagate Kimi ni Naru has Touko, after a terse comment from her unsmiling father about forcing herself to do this student council play, followed by a memory dream, announce that she's going to become her late sister. Of course, this is a core issue in Touko's character, one that she … Continue reading Yagate and IndexIII 10
