SAO 22, Shinki 9 and an inevitable Wooser screenshot

Solid episode of Sword Art Online. Things get accomplished in the game and in the real world. No one expected Kirito to just fly up and meet Asuna, but I was delighted by how hard he tried. After that dallying with the peace treaty ambush I was wondering if he had lost his inspiration, but … Continue reading SAO 22, Shinki 9 and an inevitable Wooser screenshot

Honeycomb and Jojo 7, Robotics 6

It's been a while since we've had two Hidamari Sketch - Honeycomb parts both devoted to Yuno. I don't know if there's been an episode like that all season. Well, episode 7 makes up for it. It's a full episode of good things happening to Yuno! The episode feels like it wants to have fun … Continue reading Honeycomb and Jojo 7, Robotics 6

Sukitte and Busters 6, Spacebros 32, and a Wooser screenshot

Sukitte Ii na yo 6 is interesting from a high school romance anime story because it invents an improbable and contrived conflict yet doesn't fall into any of the usual traps. We meet Megumi, a popular model who just happens to transfer to Mei and Yamato's school, funny how that happens. She sees Yamato and … Continue reading Sukitte and Busters 6, Spacebros 32, and a Wooser screenshot

Sukitte 4, Chu2koi 5, and some Joshiraku and a Wooser screenshot for the hell of it

I'd hate to think that this is going to be the routine for Sukitte Ii na yo: Mei encounters something unpleasant about Yamato or his world, and gets all grumpy until they make up at the end. Okay, that's not really fair. There were differences between Mei's past blue funks and the righteous anger she … Continue reading Sukitte 4, Chu2koi 5, and some Joshiraku and a Wooser screenshot for the hell of it

Robotics:Notes 1, Btoom, Hidamari and Wooser 2

I'm not sure how, but ROBOTICS;NOTES (noitaminA has an all-caps block this season) is from the same creative source as Chaos;Head and Steins;Gate. The former was dismal, the latter, fantastic. Judging from episode one, I expect this one to fall somewhere in between. Our heroes are Kaito and Aki. Kaito is a bored sort who … Continue reading Robotics:Notes 1, Btoom, Hidamari and Wooser 2

Chuunibyou 1, Horizon finale, Wooser 1

Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! is off to a promising start. Not surprising with its pedigree. We got Yuuta, entering high school, wanting to put all of his 8th grade syndrome fantasies behind him, especially this dark flame master stuff he obsessed about. He's boxing up all that old crap when a mysterious girl appears … Continue reading Chuunibyou 1, Horizon finale, Wooser 1
