Melancholy of Haruhi-chan 23, 24 and Nyoron Churuya-san 12… and a Haruhi-chan OP?

Haruhi-chan ONA 23, ONA 24 and Churuya-san 12.

I didn’t realize ONAs got their own OPs too. But this is Haruhi, so Kadokawa must realize that anything remotely Haruhi-related is merchadisable. It’s called Ima Made no Arasuji and features the whole cast. It’s ah… probably what you’d expect to hear from Haruhi-chan, hectic and pretty random. It’s amusing, but not something I’d listen to regularly.

K-ON! episode 5 – Mugi x Sawako flag triggered!

Yes! Recycled joke! I’m going to keep this joke going until KyoAni stops triggering flags. What if KyoAni decided to take all of their visual novel experience and turn K-ON! into a yuri romance shoujo comedy? Mio x Yui. Mugi x Sawako. Ritsu x Ui. It’d be a harbinger of otakus gone wild. I’m amused at the thought of my benign PG-rated slice of life turning into a saucy romantic comedy. It would be the biggest twist since Kadokawa’s Nice Boat.

Sengoku Basara, episode 4 – Drawing the lines

There were zero battles in this episode, unless you count Takeda’s punching of Sanada or Nobunaga’s quick humiliation of Azai, but I still enjoyed this episode quite a bit, because of the buildup. Not every episode can break new barriers of GAR, but that’s ok, as long as the story’s moving to a conflict or resolution. And compared to the last episode, I thought the writers did a better job of ratcheting up the pressure and drawing the lines of battle we’ll expect to see in the coming episodes.

Kurokami: Black God, episode 13 – Screw you guys, I’m going home

I’d read good things about KK #13. Read that it was the best episode since the first episode. Even read some comments that it felt like a whole new show. So I watched it, somewhat skeptical, but with a renewed hope in mind. Conclusion? No, it still sucks. Nothing’s changed. The show still looks cheaply animated, we didn’t lose the dumb synchro scenes, the Konbini-voyeur quickly went from ambiguously evil to clearly evil, and the story still sucks.

K-ON! episode 4 – Mio x Yui flag triggered!

Ever since Yui grabbed Mio by the hand and indulged in the softness of her fingers, Mio had been confused by the growing pressure in her chest and the shortness of breath she experienced every time Yui would say hello, or brush by her. As they continued to grow closer, practicing for the upcoming school festival, Mio wondered how much more she could bear until her chest burst. During a trip to the beach with the rest of the light music club, Mio and Yui finally got a rare opportune moment alone. Mio, unable to contain herself any longer, finally grabbed Yui by the hand and confessed her love… is not quite the way it happened, but I’ll be damned if it doesn’t, eventually.
