Finales: ACCA-13 and Youjo Senki, and Maid Dragon 12

ACCA-13 gives us a splendid finale which had me grinning through most of it, right after the moment Mauve stepped in and explained to Schwan that this coup business was nothing more than a public demonstration of his vulnerability, so please take care of yourself, okay? At first it didn't feel right that Schwan would … Continue reading Finales: ACCA-13 and Youjo Senki, and Maid Dragon 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

Youjo Senki, Maid Dragon, KonoSuba, all sevens

After a week's hiatus Youjo Senki returns and gives us more of the same. This time, however, we start with an Entente officer named Sioux and his sad goodbye to his wife and kid, who are on their way to the United States of Arkansas (I love that). Therefore we know Sioux is going to … Continue reading Youjo Senki, Maid Dragon, KonoSuba, all sevens

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
