Nyan Koi, episode 11 – Nekomimi Junpei

Seems like we’re barreling towards an anime-original ending. Although if I were to make a bet, I’d bet that we don’t get a "true" resolution to either the curse or the love triangle in the next episode. Although that image of a black fluffy haired in next episode’s preview could be a harbinger for Junpei. AIC has balls if they decide to end the season on a cliffhanger like that. I’m not typically a fan of cliffhangers, but I’d totally dig that. But anyway, enough speculation about the finale, this is about the penultimate episode.

Nyan Koi, episode 9 – Fanservice heaven

Let it be decreed that this was the greatest pool/beach episode I’ve ever seen. If Sora no Otoshimono is fanservice done right long-term, this was fanservice done right in a one shot. Great designs, excellent animation, perfect use of chibi forms, sneaky fanservice split-second eyecatches, random appearances and that’s in just half the episode! I have no doubt in my mind that AIC is going to knock Strike Witches out of the park. Actually, there’s really not much I can say about the first half. I’ll let the images speak for themselves.

Nyan Koi, episode 7 – All the right angles

Nyan Koi’s been fairly consistent, but it’s getting somewhat formulaic and getting stuck in "pretty good" land. Or basically, it is what I thought it would be when the season began. The fleeting hints of Seto no Hanayome greatness were probably just that – hints. Which isn’t to say I didn’t enjoy this last episode, because I did. It just wasn’t anything special.

Nyan Koi, episode 5 – Needs more cat

Sorry for the delay in getting this post up. The World Series has taken up all my time lately. The latest Nyan Koi episode was good, and gives us some nice Mizuno and Junpei development, but I was sort of disappointed that there were no cats in this episode. Unfortunately, you might start to notice Nyan Koi becomes more harem romcom and seems to lose the cats as the series goes on. At least that’s what I’ve seen in the manga so far. Hopefully, AIC will pick and choose chapters and volumes that have heavy cat action, because they make the show unique.
