    Beatless I misread as Beatles...though an anime where the main character is fixated on the Beatles might be interesting,especially if their music was the sound track...just sayin'. Laughing

    Wed. episode 2 of Please Teacher Kei and Mizuho end up in the sports equipment building trying to explain things to each other when some girls come in hauling equipment.They have to hide but
    too late as the girls have locked them in.
    When Kei decides to signal his friends to open the door Mizuho tells him not to because they might get the wrong idea.
    So they end up in there until night when Kei's uncle and aunt and the principal finally find them.
    It looks like Mizuho will be fired but Kei's uncle comes up with the excuse that they're already married.The principal doesn't accept that until Kei comes out with the truth that he's really 18,he
    just looks 15.
    The principal doesn't believe it at first until Kei's uncle and aunt nod in agreement.
    And so next week the "wedding".

    Thursday episode 2 of Nadeisco the military led by Yukari's father want to stop the Nadeisco from reaching Mars.This is because they don't think a private corporation (Nergal) should have it's
    own warship.
    A squadron under Yukari's father heads out to stop them and the crew is taken under arrest.
    Yukari obeys her father and takes out the key stopping the Nadeisco,Earlier Akito had told her the reason he was mad at her was because when her family had left Mars his parents had been
    murdered and he blames it on her.
    So the reason she goes to talk to her father is to find out the truth about what really happened that day.
    After clobbering a guard with a skillet,Akito with the help of Megumi and Ruri launches.The problem though is his mecha isn't quite fit for sea yet and "Gai" has to go out to fget him.Together they're
    able to partially destroy a creature about to attack,but they still don't have enough power and so
    Yukari orders the Nadesico to fly right into it at full power.

    There are music only animes like Vocaloids, also male bands/boy groups anime have risen in the past 2-3 seasons (I suppose as response to the many girl group) I think I saw one "recent" beatles anime announcement (no not the old movie) I think it was another yellow submarine theme, too, or so...

    Hard to do without John and George around though.

    Friday watched episode 15 of Bubblegum Crisis,Tokyo 2040,Sylia is in complete shock and
    Nene and Linna have to support her while Priss takes a look topside.There she encounters Leon
    again who claims he's off duty.
    Later at the nightclub Priss tells Linna that she's quiting the Knight Sabers and reveals the fact that their Hardsuits are really Boomers.
    They argue and Leon enters and recognizes Linna as the "on in the green suit" when she leaves.
    At Nigel's Nene shows up to see how Mackie is doing.Nigel tells her the truth about him as Mackie
    regains conscious.
    He says that the reason why he came to Tokyo was he thought it was Slyia calling him,but it turned out to be his 'other sister'..Galatea.
    Suddenly Mackie,Nene,Linna and Priss all get a telepathic message from Slyia...

    Saturday OVAs 1 and 2 of Girls Und Panzer in the first one the girls decide to go to the beach.
    Unfortunately Miho doesn't have a swimsuit so they go to the store.They have so much fun that
    Miho forgets to buy a suit;fortunately for her Yukari got an extra.
    They arrive at the beach and just as the fun is about to commence it starts to really pour as in a monsoon type of rain shower.
    In the second one the school council president announces they're going on a camping trip!
    The spot she got is sure to be safe from outsiders and they're off.
    After setting up camp the girls try a BBQ,with disastrous results.Fortunately the president comes to the rescue.
    Also Yukari shares some of her prized collection of rations( seriously?!)
    Later the president reveals that the real reason they chose the spot because they can use it for
    Tankery practice and the sign at the gate reveals it's actually a military practice range!...

    Sunday OVA 1 of Monster Musume after a much needed check up it's revealed that
    Cereas,Miia and Mera are in need of some serious weight lost(because they're smaller
    Papi,Suu and Lala don't have the same problem..also for other reasons;also Rachena
    can loose weight simply by shooting thread as someone points out to her).
    Agent Smith pops up and announces the opening of a new gym just for demis.
    The girls and Kurusu go there and find the MON squad already there.
    The fox demi who owns and operates the gym greets everyone and they're off.
    Unfortunately they soon discover that the equipment may not be useful for everyone.
    Then they try some yoga.
    Both Cereas and Rachnea have problems because of their many legs.
    Mera seems to get through it swimmingly and Miia simply curls her body around.
    Later they go swimming and Mera and Miia get into a contest to see who wins the rights to have
    Kurusu do whatever she wants for the day(Cereas also enters the contest but everyone forgets about her until the end when Kurusu points out after all that effort of trying to outdo each other
    both Miia and Mera overworked themselves,thus Cereas won! Laughing )
    At the end everyone gets hungry so Kurusu treats them to Italian dinner,but they eat so much that
    he tells them that they're back where they were to start with!

    Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card ep.2-3
    Basically, Sakura is collecting new powers/cards which allows her to use in combat. We see a hint about the person in her dreams; having the same height as Sakura. Most likely her mirror self in another world...
    Not much to see so far.

    Toji no Miko ep.2-3
    The reason for the conflict is revealed! It appears the Hero who defeated the Great Monster years ago is actually the monster. Hence, the organization battling the monsters is under the enemies control. It appears collecting monster blood has been abolish. It was used to created compasses which detect and guide toward monsters. Nowaday some kind of sensor network system is used (probably under enemy control).
    I guess this is about it for this show.

    I will stick to Violet Evergarden and Darling in the FranXX, and depending on how things go with Grancrest Senki, Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku.

    Hmmm....a doppelganger sounds interesting for Sakura.

    Monday re-watched episode 3 of Magic Users' Club in the first part Takeo and the others try to cast a spell to make an apple shrink.It doesn't work until Akane shows up.
    Later when Taeko takes a bite of the apple he ends up shrinking as well!
    In the second part Akane gets abducted by the Bell and the others have to rescue her.
    When they finally get her free she starts falling,because there was nothing but the Bell holding her up;Sae casts a desperate spell and causes Akane to grow temporary wings that help her and the
    President and VP of the club get back to earth safely.

    Tuesday episode 10 of Flying Witch in the first part Kei,Mokota and Nao are in cooking class.
    The assignment is to make hamburger steak.They wind up with Kei making curry,Makoto salad and
    poor Nao hamburger.
    The teacher has to help her with the slicing of the onions because of an incident in the past that has made Nao leery of cooking or even being in the kitchen.
    It turns out well anyways.In the mean time Makoto decides to make some 'Witches Fingers' cookies
    that are supposed to bring good luck in relationships.Unfortunately no-one will take one because they look like real fingers!
    It ends up with the meal all done except:they forgot to decide who was going to cook the rice!
    The second part Makoto,Akane and their cousins go out to the family farm to help prune back the
    flowers on the apple trees.
    While there Kei shows Makoto a hornet faced bee.She's leery of being stung but he says it doesn't have a stinger,but she does something to make it nervous and it bites her instead.

    Wed. ep. 3 of Please Teacher Kei and Mizuho go through the formalities of getting married so that the principal doesn't think they're pulling a fast one on him.Kei also finds out that since he's
    supposedly married to Mizuho now that he got kicked out of the apartment that he was living with his uncle and aunt in.
    Later the rest of the gang decide to see why Kei has been acting so weird and end up at Mizuho's.
    Kei has to hide out on the balcony and ends up falling on the ground in front of the neighbors rather
    grumpy dog.
    That night the two of them are both nervous since it's their first time as a couple and Kei wants to sleep on the couch but Mizuho says it's ok to sleep next to her on the futon.
    Just as Kei is about to kiss her Marie starts acting up again and sends them to the ship.
    A restless night of trying to fix things and Kei admits to being tired out but his uncle gets the wrong idea of why he's tired out...

    Th.ep.3 of Nadeisco the Earth's military is not happy with the Nadeisco going to Mars and so they send yet another expedition to stop it.This time Yukari's best friend pilots one of the craft that are sent to intercept.
    Meanwhile Akito bounds with "Gai" over Gaikanger 3(sp?) but when the attack comes
    "Gai" goes off to intercept in his mecha.
    He of course still is in Gaikanger 3 mode so he makes a lot of wild orders that of course the
    Nadeisco can't comply with because they don't have that stuff.
    Later Akito goes out to help;he very sensibly talks Jun(Yukari's friend)into giving up,which he does.
    Later while "Gai" is putting up some stickers on his mecha to celebrate his kills earlier he notices the
    prisoners escaping and one of them shoots him..

    Emiya-san Chi no Kyou no Gohan
    a food show with Fat/Stay night characters. Meh.
    For some reason I always mistake Food Wars with Yakitate. Not like I ever watched both more than one episode.

    Takunomi
    looks like a commercial show. Meh.

    It seems anime is expanding to new "innovative" areas. I really don't see much worth in the new short format for most or these new kind of shows. I understand studios need to survive. I just hope it won't kill it all.

    Friday episode 16 of Bubblegum Crisis,Tokyo 2040 it turns out that Galatea is responsible for
    Slyia's sudden coma.
    When Slyia revives she tells the others about how when she was younger she had started the
    Knight Sabers with another group.But despite their skills,she learned that ordinary hardsuits weren't
    enough which is why the ones they use are Boomers with limiters.
    Priss gets mad and says she quits and walks out.
    Meanwhile Leon has learned that the AD Police might be shutting down and he gets pissed off and
    tells off the Chief who tries to calm him down to no success.
    Nene is working by herself when she gets a message from Macky,in the middle of it she's told about the walk out.
    At GENOM Mason gets a talking to by the Chairman by ignores the warning and goes to visit
    Galatea.
    Back at the AD Police the self defense devises have suddenly activated shutting down the building with Nene,the Chief and a couple of others stuck inside while the Rogue Boomers in the building
    start attacking.At Genom Mason gloats while Galatea dances...

    Saturday OVAs 3 & 4 of Girls Und Panzerthe first one is basically a tour of the ship that
    Oorai is part of.There is also a brief history of school ships from the time of the Romans to the
    present day.We also learn that Mako is scared of heights(which is reasonable).
    Great Line:
    Saori(holding back of skirt):"Don't look up!"
    Mako:"Why?We're both girls"
    OVA 4 was basically the girls doing the Anko Dance all over the ship.

    Sunday OVA 2 of Monster Musume Rahcnera gets a letter saying that her original host
    family wants her back.Of course Mia is excited because it means one less rival for Kurusu's
    affections and is happy to help out.
    There's a knock at the door and the daughter from the original host family enters.
    She introduces herself but Papi(bird brain! Laughing Laughing )keeps forgetting her name so she
    keeps re-introducing herself.
    The girls decide that before she gets to talk to Rachnera she should see what every day life is for
    her.
    She thinks it's a series of tests and welcomes the challenges.
    In the end it doesn't matter because Kurusu is the one who has to sign the paper deeding the rights to Rachnera over.
    But he declines stating that she needs to learn it's not a game,that she needs to learn to respect
    demi-humans like they were humans.
    The girl goes out saying she'll work on it and next time will pass the challenges!

    At the end,after the ED there's a short where the girls try out bras (Suu can't wear any,
    Mera's keep sliding off and there's none big enough for Centorea)and hosiery (poor
    Mera and Mia being basically a fish and a snake respectively can't wear any).When Kurusu
    gets home he of course is once more bewildered at the girl's antics.

    Monday re-watched episode 4 of His And Hers Circumstances for my raw night.
    Yukino realizes that she really loves Arima but every time she tries her hardest to confess something
    a bit awkward happens:from walking into the science lab during a club meeting to getting cold feet
    when she decides to phone him,nothing seems to work!
    It's only at the very end of the episode when they're sitting together at a meeting that
    she realizes he loves her as well.
    The episode ends with her commenting:"and that is when we became Boyfriend and Girlfriend."

    Tuesday episode 11 of Flying Witch According to the Witch Paper the flying whale will be in
    the area.Akane takes Makoto and Chisantu to see the whale.It's very friendly and allows them on
    its back where they find out the ruins of an entire civilization there.
    After exploring a temple they meet Anzu(the girl from the cafe).She is interested in archaeology
    and has been studying the flying whales for awhile.
    It turns out that Kenny(Akane's familiar)is an expert in archaeology and Anzu's mentor.
    Later they all go back for some breakfast(Kei made pancakes,and they discuss what the real
    difference between hotcakes and pancakes is as well as the history of pancakes in Japan).
    Anzu calls home and her mom sends her owl familiar with a message for Akane: it's time for her to pay up on her tab! Laughing
    In the epilog Makoto notices a special festival that is being advertised.

    episode 4 of Please Teacher on Wednesday.Ichigo cons Kei into taking Koichio on a date
    without either of them being the wiser about it.In the mean time Mizuho decides to spy on Kei.
    This comes after the two of them have their first argument and Kei is pissed because she's
    treating him like a kid.
    Afterwards he regrets what he has said and done,but when Mizuho shows up he overreacts again and goes into another stand still.When he wakes up Mizuho is taking care of him.
    They make up and go home together..

    Th. episode 4 of Nadeisco After Gai's death they are short a pilot and learn that they'll be picking up some new ones at their first stop.But the Jovian Lizards attack before they get there.
    Akito is still mourning for Gai and so is no use whatsoever.
    While he's watching the same scene over and over again a girl literally falls on top of him.
    It turns out she's Hikaru one of the replacement pilots.
    One of the others coms towing the three remaining mecha behind her.The thrid one turns up in
    a supply crate! Laughing
    They volunteer to go over to the colony and see if there's anything more to salvage and Akito
    decides to follow;though he proves to be decidedly useless as he doesn't know how to pilot in
    zero gravity.
    While they're salvaging they find another mecha but the Jovian Lizards have taken it over so it
    attacks them.
    Akito is floating around outside in space when it comes out and so is the only one that can stop
    them...

    Godzilla Kaijuu Wakusei episode 00
    a movie length episode(?)
    In the near future Godzilla happens upon the Earth. Aliens immigrants arrive to offer help in exchange for asylum. But both fail and mankind is forced to abandon Earth. After wandering for 20 years they give up and return. Meanwhile some 10-20000 years have past due to warp jumps. Humanity with its 4000 people are determined to take back the Earth. To their surprise Earth has changed to a hostile environment. Godzilla and it's descendants are among the most dangerous creatures around. A war of annihilation starts.
    It seems the aliens went their own way but left a few behind to support humanity with their technology & wisdom & religion. Overall nice but kind of a bit toward a younger audience.

    Hopefully it was better than the one they showed on Svengoolie on Metv a couple of Saturday
    nights ago. It looked a bit goofy but the dub...why do they have such bad dubbing for Godzilla movies?

    Friday episode 17 of Bubblegum Crisis,Tokyo 2040 things continue to get hairy for Nene and the others trapped in the AD Police HQ. Nene tries to activate the distress beacon,but in the end it seems to do nothing but attract the attention of the rogue Boomers as they assimilate the communications
    equipment,including cell phones.
    Meanwhile Slyia,Linna and Priss are wondering what to do when Priss mentions her motorcycle.
    Nigel agrees that it could be used both with and without a hardsuit so she decides to give it a go.
    At Genom,Mason finds out that he has been betrayed and kills the Boomer.
    Meanwhile the beacon has done some good as it has gotten the attention of Leon and his partner.
    Other AD Police arrive about the same time that Priss does,she motions Leon ever to her...

    Saturday OVAs 5 & 6 of Girls Und Panzer the first one shows what really happened to
    Erwin and Yukari on their scout about. It turns out that Yukari some how has come prepared for any
    circumstances; even having a shovel!(where she hide that on her?)It's a good thing to as a snow storm suddenly comes up and they have to get shelter in a hurry.
    Later they find Pravda's flag tank and the arrangement the other tanks have been put in to protect it.
    Erwin wants to go back now that they got the information they came for,but Yukari wants to get
    some more info so they disguise themselves and get what they need from an unwitting freshman..

    The second OVA episode was basically the victory banquet.During which they have a talent contest
    (rigged a bit since the Student Council who were entrants and the judges win! Laughing )

    Sunday episodes 1 and 2 of season 1 of RWBY Ruby is in a store when it'a bout to be robbed.
    When one of the robbers tries to get her attention she defends herself and he winds up sailing out of the window.The leader has the others go after her,but she fends them off as well and then
    chases after the leader who flees in a helicopter.
    An huntress appears and helps Ruby.
    Later she takes Ruby and begins to lecture her about the danger she was putting herself in but
    says someone wants to see her.
    The huntress turns out to be Glynda and the someone else Oobleck.
    Ruby ends up being allowed to enter Beacon Academy.
    On the way she is reunited with her older half sister Yang.

    In episode 2 they reach Beacon and Ruby is deserted by Yang who has made some new friends
    already.Ruby accidentally bumps into some luggage containing dust that belong to a very irritated
    white haired girl (Weiss).She yells at her but a black haired girl with a black bow in her hair walks up
    and tells her off (Blake).
    But she leaves before Ruby can thank her.
    Then Ruby meets Jaune and they walk to where the opening ceremony is to be comparing weapons.
    That night Ruby and Yang introduce themselves to Blake,who is trying to read a book.
    Weiss walks up to them to tell them to shut up because they are being too noisy...

    Monday episode 11 of Escaflowne for raw Monday night.
    Hitomi,Van and the others are imprisoned.Hitomi reveals that she can tell fortunes and
    demonstration is asked for.But when she does she goes into a trance that leaves her comatose
    for awhile.
    Millerna tries to uses CPR along with Van and finally Hitomi revives.
    She reveals what she found out and they are let free.
    Using Escaflowne in dragon mode they fly off,but too late as Hitomi's prediction has already
    come true..

    Tuesday episode 12 of Flying Witch Makoto finds out she needs to make a new robe
    as her old one is full of holes and too small now.
    On her way to the store she passes over where the Neputa Festival is being held and spies
    Akane drinking in one of the tents;next she sees Inukai giving fortunes.
    When she gets to the store she starts looking at patterns.Chito shows her one with cats that look like herself.
    Then she gets an idea and calls home to see what Chinatsu's favorite color is in order to make a
    surprise robe for her.
    Later they surprise Kei when he comes home by showing him Chinatsu in her new robe.
    She likes it so much that she sleeps in it.
    Most of the rest of the episode is everyone getting ready to go to the Festival.
    The ED is made up of various scenes of the characters at the Festival.
    Also it is almost time for Makoto to make her first report back on her progress.

    Overall this has been a fun series.My only complaint is that it could have been a bit longer,but then again there is the manga..

    Flying Witch: For a moment I thought it had a 2nd season but I mistook it for another... Hmm, the manga isn't exactly long imho. Half as long as what I would consider average for successful entry level.

    Dame x Prince Anime Caravan
    This is an anime made as a collection of funny awkward situations. The story serves to create opportunities and nothing else. There's not really anything new you haven't seen elsewhere. It's a solid low level entertainment show. Not bad but not that good either. If you like awkward situations this is the show!

    It just seems that the manga would include a bit more than what was in the anime,at least that was my impression from reading the synopsis of volume 4 of the manga at Rightstuf.

    Wed. watched the dub of episode 5 of Please Teacher,Kei and Mizuho's much delayed
    honeymoon gets complicated as they run into the rest of the gang and Mizuho's fellow teacher,
    Mr.Yamada at the resort where they are staying.

    Th.episode 5 of [b]Nadesico
    Yurika finds out that being the captain consists of a lot of boring
    sitting around when she's not conducting funeral services.And then the Jovian Lizards finally
    launch a full scale attack against the Nadeisco...

    great line of dialogue:
    Ruri: "You're pretty cruel."

    Friday watched episode 18 of Bubblegum Crisis,Tokyo 2040 the rescuers themselves wind up
    needing to be rescued as Leon and his team get trapped in the AD Police HQ building along with
    Nene and the others.The Boomers try to assimilate the entire building.
    Just in time Slyia,Linna and Mackie arrive in a police helicopter;but it looks like its too late.
    Finally with the help of the chief Leon is able to detonate a series of bombs that freeze the Boomers
    in place.
    Meanwhile back at Genom the Chairman receives an unexpected visitor:the Boomer that Mason
    shot.She is no longer under Genom control but the control of Galatea...

    Saturday Girls Und Pazer:This is the Real Anzio Battle the OVA that basically retells the battle between Anzio and Oorai that was skipped over in the tv series.This was fun to watch especially as it turned out that Caesar was best friends with Anzio's co-vice commander Carpaccio.
    I also liked the fact that they remembered about Yukari's earlier recon spy mission to Saunders and
    used her again in the same manner to Anzio.
    According to the Wiki Anchovy's character in the OVA is toned down from the Manga,where she is
    a lot more arrogant.
    I liked the fact though that like Kay she was a good sport in the end and hosted a party for
    Oorai and Anzio teams afterward.

    Interesting trivia:
    1.I think this is the only ED or one of the few where the Oorai girls aren't caricatured in
    chibi form,instead it's Anchovy,Capaccio and Pepperoni.
    2.Pepperoni basically gives the whole secret away when she admits that Yukari was correct
    in surmising what the secret weapon for Anzio was.
    3.Pepperoni could also be to blamed for loosing or at least partially because she placed the decoys
    too close together and in one place.
    4.Carpaccio recognized Caesar's signature symbol from their e-mails and goes after her tank.

    All in all now I need Der Film.

    Sunday episodes 3 and 4 of RWBY the incoming students are told they will be paired up into teams and the teammates they make will be permanent as long as they are at Beacon.
    They are supposed to work with their teammates to find a relic and bring it back to Oobleck and
    Glynda.
    Oobleck also tells them that the first person they meet will be their teammate.
    Ruby is hoping that she'll be able to find either Yang or Jaune or even Blake.So the first person she runs into happens to be the last person she wanted:WEISS! Laughing
    Meanwhile Yang has run into some trouble of her own with Grim,thankfully Blake appears and helps her out.
    They manage to make it to the ruins.While they're standing there Ruby literally comes flying out of nowhere...

    Monday I re-watched Ghost Sweeper Mikami the episode where Mikami is hired to get rid of a gremlin that has hitched a ride on a spaceship. So Tadao ends up getting volunteered to take an
    astral projection trip into space,with Ookina filming(so..ummm...ghosts can interact with cameras?)
    The usual mayhem follows...

    Tuesday episodes 1 & 2 of Magical Witch Puni-chan Puni comes to Earth as part of her
    training to become queen.In the second one Payapan arrives.

    Poor Testuko's face when she hears the end of how Puni and Payapan met! affraid
    Of course then there was the look on Ageno and her gang when they saw the vegetables in the
    home ec room...

    Oops...I meant Payatan and not Payapan.Interesting he's played by our beloved Homura:
    Chiwa Saito! Very Happy

    Wed. episode 6 of Please Teacher,Mizuho's mother and younger sister Maho come to visit
    indefinitely.The latter fact turns out not to be too good for Kei as Maho doesn't like him any.
    Like Skuld in Ah!My Goddess,Maho doesn't like any man or boy getting between her and her
    beloved older sister.
    IIRC doesn't Hisakawa Aya play both characters in the original Japanese?
    I might be wrong about that,but it would seem so right to have the seiyuu for Skuld also play
    Maho...just sayin'.

    Th.episode 6 of Nadesico The ship finally gets past the Jovian blockade of Mars and begins
    its search for survivors of the colony.A landing party is taken to see where the Martian facility for
    Nergal used to be;Akito goes to visit his old hometown with Megumi tagging along.
    They discover an underground where the remaining colonists are staying led by Inez who worked on the original design for the ship.
    Returning with them she is very skeptical about the chances of everyone making it back to Earth
    on the Nadesico.
    The Jovial Lizards attack again and Yurika has very few good options,she decides to lift off
    even though it means the destruction of what remains of the colonists(who are being destroyed
    any way by the enemy bombardment.
    Later Akito finds her beside herself.
    She has lost her confidence,but it returns when she meets Megumi who tells her she'll never
    give up.Of course Yurika misunderstands her and promises she'll never give up either!

    Friday episode 19 of Bubblegum Crisis,tokyo 2040,the evacuation of Tokyo begins.
    Nene almost spills the beans about being a Knight Saber in front of the Chief but makes a
    quick save.
    Back at Nigel's the new hardsuits are revealed with Linna acting as a model;but trouble isn't too far away as abandoned cars in a tunnel become one huge Voomer(yea, I know keep spelling it Boomer
    but it's actually Voomer).
    At Genom Mason continues his wooing of Galatea...

    Saturday episode 1 of Photon,The Idiot Adventures,Keyne is trying to escape Papachan but he's put a tracker on her(in her panites!).She manages to elude him and makes a crash landing on
    Sandy Planet.
    Meanwhile Aun(Horie Yui) has stolen the Holy Object to bring to Laman,a singer she has been crushing on ever since he sang a concert at the village.
    Photon is sent to retrieve her and the Holy Object.
    When he finds her she takes the Holy Object and writes BAKA on his forehead when he's sleeping.
    Then one thing leads to another and Photon winds up finding Keyne in suspended animation.
    He writes BAKA on her forehead;when she wakes up she's pissed and tries to kill him and then
    sees her reflection:since he's put his 'seal' on her in her culture that means they're now married.
    She forces him to take a bath with her because:"I don't want a smelly husband."
    btw:The Holy Object is a Magic Marker! Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

    Sunday episodes 5 & 6 of RWBY Season 1 So I goofed here I thought it was 16 episodes when it is in reality only 10 and then the end credits.
    Anyhows,Team RWBY and JNPR finish their tasks but on the way back they encounter more
    Grim that they have to fight.
    Afterwards when the teams are constituted Jaune is surprised to be named team Captain for
    team JNPR while Ruby (much to Weiss' disgust) is named leader of team RWBY.
    They both want to know why this is and both get pretty much the same answer:Ruby has the
    potential to be a good leader.
    Later they make up their differences...

    For some reason I hadn't much time to watch recently and winter is ind of making me tiring at the end of the day.


    Denei Shoujo - Video_Girl_Ai, ep.1 live action
    The story continues with Yota's nephew. It doesn't quite feel the same but the actors are doing well.
    The story so far is slow but appears similar to the original as far as story elements and composition/events go.

    Any chance the anime might be re-released if it hasn't been already?

    Monday I re-watched the raw of episode 6 of this little known Sci Fi anime called
    Banner of the Stars II Laughing Laughing Laughing
    This is the one where they wind up having the discussion about Abh Hell and is appropriately
    titled Abh Hell.It is also one of those episodes that features Lafiel showing off the infamous
    'Abriel Smile' toward the end.
    Word of warning never piss off an Abriel to the extant they show off their infamous smile, it
    ain't a pretty sight.
    Also Jinto gets held hostage again...Man, how many times does this make it that Lafiel has to
    come to his rescue again?

    Wednesday episodes 3 & 4 of Magical Witch Punie-chanPunie-chan is under attack again.
    The first is from the daughter of the deposed king of Magic Land the former Princess Elise aka
    Ellie The Hole Digger.
    Next up is a reunion with her two equally devious younger fraternal twin sisters.
    Their idea is to use an ancient god to destroy Punie with and take her position as heirs apparent.
    Except as she shows submission holds can be used against anyone or anything(the god also recognized her as the "witch" that beat him before and makes a hasty retreat).
    In the end she promises them pancakes if they behave themselves...

    Video Girl AI has been out a long time afaik but as with DNA2 it's pretty rare these days.
    https://www.amazon.com/Video-Girl-Ai-Yuri-Amano/dp/B00005QCW3

    Mob Psycho 100, live action, airing
    I've found it while looking. I don't think it's a good conversion. Hardly works for this kind of theme and with a doubtful cast... not that they are bad just not fitting here.
    The anime is all you need. Watch it if you haven't yet.

    Not yet.

    See that Netflix is airing the live action version of Full Metal Alchemist now in both English and
    Japanese versions.

    Also yesterday Arpeggio of Blue Steel arrived and so will start watching around the 13 of
    March.

    Wed. watched episode 7 of Please Teacher dubbed. Maho is still mad at Kei and in the middle of her saying he should have married their mother instead he runs out.Kiyoshi finds him helping
    Mr.Yamada out on his plane and they talk.Unfortunately when Marie finds Kei he scares Kiyoshi and
    Mizuho discovers them in an embarrassing position.
    Then she gives them a lecture;Maho has Kei transferred to the same dimension he and Mizuho
    were before and she starts in on him again.
    This causes him to get too excited and he lands in another Stand Still where he sees himself
    at school with a girl whose face he can't see.
    Mizuho finds them and tells Maho about the Stand Stills.
    Kei wakes and tells Mizuho that her voice is what woke him up.In the end Maho and their mother
    return home,but not without Maho pranking Kei and kissing him on the cheek which Mizuho
    unfortunately sees and makes her cry.Kei goes to comfort his wife...

    Th.episode 7 of Madeisco subbed.Yuakri and Ruri are giving a show about how the ship works.
    The Nadeisco is on the way to the Martian North Pole to investigate the other lab site when they
    come across the remains of a ship that disappeared on Earth.But the Admiral urges them to go on.
    When they arrive Hikaru,Ryoko and Izumi are sent out to investigate the situation but are
    ambushed.Ryoko finally agrees that they need Akito to help them.
    Back at the ship they decide to return to the crash site.
    The Admiral,Inez and Akito go to investigate(Akito is pissed at the Admiral because it turns out he was in command when his colony was attacked and fell to the Jovian Lizards).
    The Admiral has Akito and Inez check the outside engines and then starts the ship without
    warning.He tells Yukari to order the Nadeisco into the Chuilp,which she does as the enemy are
    about to attack.
    Meanwhile the Admiral sacrifices himself by using the derelict ship to block the opening so
    the Jovian Lizards can't follow...

    Haven't seen FMA yet.
    Yeah, netflix has started streaming a lot of current japanese live actions. It's obviously trying to cover every possible ground and build viewership before any other rival. It's good as long as it doen't become a monopoly.

    Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card, ep.8
    I haven'T exactly watched it closely but it seems to be dragging on in preparing for the battle. So far no real story progress yet. In this episode Sakura meets the mysterious person in her dream again. Still no conversation or answers but this time we see clock works. Looks like it's time? *shrugs*

    Edit:
    This season's underdog recommendation:
    Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens
    A show about delicious ramen (of course), a private detective and an assassin. Basically, City Hunter and Cowboy Bebop combined (with a lesser & smaller prominent cast).
