MM! Episode 5

November 1, 2010

This was definitely the craziest episode yet, which is certainly saying something. Going from power level radars to super sayain transformations, this episode was a complete throw back to Dragon Ball Z and an… interesting parody of it. The episode even started out as a parallel, with Mio dressed suspiciously similar to Louise of Zero no Tsukaima.

Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru Episode 4

November 1, 2010

Mr. Moriaka, you have such a strange sense of humor. I understand that you really don’t like Hotori. I understand that she is fundamentally the onlyreason why you can no longer enjoy life. But the point to which you stress over her failing your quizzes and exams is just plain overkill. It’s making your hair fall out for god sake!

Letter Bee S2 Episode 5

November 1, 2010

It’s a Reverse World alright, not only in the sense of the anti-government organization revolting against underground spirit amber experiments on humans, but also in how nothing is what it seems. The strict social status requirements on stepping foot into Akatsuki already pose several questions on exactly what the government is doing there — or what it can get away with — but the appearance of an ex-Bee and dingo duo who are now inspectors from the capital does as well when they turn out to be Marauder spies.

Sora no Otoshimono Forte Episode 5

October 31, 2010

Compared to the first season, this sequel appears to be taking off much quicker on the relevant story side of things as the focus shifts back to the mysteries surrounding Synapse. The man of the (half) hour is none other than Eishirou, who plunges back into a Dive Game and makes his proclamation against theMaster of the Sky. Oh now it’s on!

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt Episode 10

October 31, 2010

I have a feeling “cognitive dissonance” was a theme this week, with clashing styles of art that somehow feels akin to Yuasa Masaaki’s works. The depressing atmosphere, troubling reality, and your not so great to look at faces, reminds me of something to the likes of Mind Game. I had previously thought it was more similar to Satoshi Kon, but his art style is nowhere near the same. Can’t say anything about directorial wise.

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt Episode 9

October 30, 2010

There’s a whole mess of confusion within me from watching this half. Is it the urge to be disgusted from an episode devoted to boogers? That said boogers are so abundant, and shooting everywhere, or that they look exactly like Stocking’s sweets? How about that Stocking eats said sweets, but soon eats those boogers too, but the cognitive dissonance of seeing it still as a sweet, but knowing it’s a booger just rips the mind apart?

Star Driver Episode 4

October 29, 2010

Now, this has been my favorite episode so far; since the first episode at least. Primarily, it’s because we finally broke out of the formula and actually had some TakutoxWako development other than Wako fawning over Takuto in Zero Time when he does cool shit.
