    Friday episode 10 of Croisee Claude goes to visit a customer, but he feels a bit down because
    the customer wants something in the style of his late father. Yune tries to cheer him up by telling him to pretend it's a battle between him and his father.
    Later Yune finds an old magic lantern in the basement and Oscar decides to give her a show, then
    Alice shows up and he gives it to both girls and Edgar and the maids that came with Alice.
    Alain comes by and suggests they bring more blankets and then volunteers to help; so it turns into
    a community gathering.
    At the end as Alice leaves one of the men states that she's become a friend of the gallerie.

    Saturday episode 6, the finale of Murder Princess the gang rush to get to the chamber before
    Keito and Cecila but the knights prevent them. Falis, Milano and Jouto finally arrive on their own but
    not without having to face Cecila one last time. They make it to the door but Keito arrives before they can operate the machine and make their wish to return to their own bodies; instead Keito
    starts it and makes the wish to end the world.
    Falis in the meantime fianlly offs Cecila and she returns to her true form as an aged hag before
    she turns to dust and dies.
    Jouto says the only way to override it is to destroy it; but this means it will end all old tech.
    Falis goes ahead and does it,even though she realizes it means being stuck in Alita's body but
    Alita is willing; though she doesn't want Falis to kill her brother.

    Sunday episode 6 of Tenjho Tenge the fight at the bowling alley continues.Bob places
    Chiaki in a locker to keep her safe. Maya realizes that Aya was being silly when she slapped her
    but has no time to muse over things as she still is busy with Isuzu. Unfortunatley Isuzu's chi
    begins to weaken as she used too much in the fight and her true form is revealed: a rather
    unattractive overly obese girl (she hid all the blades in her fat).Maya is unable to get out of the way of the blades as Isuzu literally begins to "pop" and is seriously wounded.
    Aya in the meantime is having her own difficulties,
    At the end the President of the Executive Committee arrives.

    Monday re-watched episode 4 of Princess Tutu kinda opposite day since I had watched it
    raw before but this time was subbed because it was one of the DVDs where the options were
    Japanese Subbed or English Dubbed; no longer had the option of turning off the sub.
    Highlight was Rue dancing Giselle.

    Tuesday episodes 7 & 8 of Season 4 of RWBY; Weiss not only gets grounded as in she is now a prisoner of her own family, but it's revealed her younger brother in a machiavellian move
    manipulated their dad so that now he's the heir to the Schnee fortune.
    Meanwhile Blake makes up to her dad for staying with White Fang even when her parents had left
    when they realized the path that Adam was taking it; but Son interrupts warning that the White
    Fang was spying on them.
    Ruby and the others continue their fight with Salem's man. Qrow is wounded but they win;
    that night he tells them what's really going on.

    Steins Gate 0 ep.23
    Saved!
    Finally, after many tries Okarin managed in making a fraction of a second's difference, hence, the time machine dematerialized in time before the missile connected.
    Mayuri calls herself and tells her to confess and take care of Kyouma before disappearing in a random time jump along with Suzu. One day (only) 20000 years in the past when all hope is lost a pillar of light appears in front of them...

    Friday finished up Croisee in a Foreign Labyrinth with episode 12. Some more background on

    Sunday episode 8 of Tenho Tenge The end of the preliminary fights as most of the

    Executive Council have been finally defeated now it's Maya. Aya and Souchiro vs. Takayaniga's

    Monday re-watched Ah! My Goddess : Flights of Fancy episode 10 ( I think).Watched it dubbed since the only options were sub or dub. In this episode Peorth decides to go back to Heaven, but only after Keiichi tells her his wish. Of course once again Keiichi misspeaks with the result that he thinks
    Belldandy is going to be mad at him.


    Fun scene: Urd on the broom talking to Peorth. Can it get any more cliched? Laughing

    Tuesday finished off season 4 of RWBY with episodes 11 & 12. Yang escapes for the Schnee
    estate; Blake decides she wants to bring White Fang back to it's original purpose and defeat Adam; Yang goes riding off after her sister; Ruby and the others defeat the Demon Grim and finally arrive
    at Mistral. There's also a surprise to lead into season 5.


    All in all I thought it was a much better season than what some people had said.The series is just now really getting into the meat and potatoes of the plot. Can't wait to get Seasons 5 & 6 and
    find out if Lionheart really is the traitor the ending for Season 4 seems to indicate or not.Also
    was interesting to see Nora and Ren's back story.

    Wed. finished part 1 of War on Geminar I must say that Lashara came up with some rather
    unique "rules" for Kenchi to follow in order to make sure he lost the race and she didn't loose. Lithia getting pissed at Kenchi was more hilarious than usual since this time she had a right to be; and then he decides to throw it when it's only him and Aura left.
    Anyhows as the other girls mention this episode really shows that Chaia and Kenchi have really started to act like brother and sister, as though being related to Mexiah wasn't enough for Chaia! Laughing

    Th. ep.11 of Matoi, Shingo forces the entity possessing Pochi to reveal itself finally; good thing to or Pochi would have died as Shingo wasn't kidding, he actually shot Pochi and the entity
    had to act in self defense. It then reveals the truth about what it was up to and about both Matoi and her mother.
    This of course leads to a rather awkward farewell between father and daughter as they both want to tell the other the truth but neither can say it. Later when Matoi decides to leave for the Highest Dimension both Clarus and Yuma opt to go with her even though neither is as strong as Matoi now.


    The finale next week followed by the Bonus and OVA episodes in two weeks.


    Up next: Tues.:Soul Link; Wed. Wizard Barristers ; Th. starting the end of the month

    Squid Girl Season 1.

    Friday episode 1 of Pumpkin Scissors dubbed. Olan at 7' 5" and Alice at 5' nothing
    make for a rather amusing odd couple. the first time we see Olan he's wondering what the war
    was all about after the armistice is called. The Empire= Imperial Germany, which is more or less
    shown by the way in the dub some of the characters sport German sounding accents,except for
    the main characters.


    Saturday episode 2 of [b]Magic Users Club[/b] and the intro of the rival Manga Club.
    Basically the girls all decide either to quit (Sae and Nanako) or are too busy with dates (Akane).
    This means the club would be disbanded if something didn't happen. Fortunately something does happen and it grabs the interest of the Bell.
    Also Sae feels she's lost her powers, which is the reason she wants to quit; but during the spell
    casting on the roof she gets her magical groove back---unfortunately it also means instead of rain

    the object they're trying to put the spell on turns into a gigantic version of "Jeffy" her teddy bear! Laughing Laughing Laughing


    Sunday episode 9 of Tenjho Tenge The fight is finally over and it's revealed that Tanayagaki's
    older brother and Maya once were a thing; that is until he killed Maya and Aya's older brother. Chaiki
    is pissed at the revelation and wants to know why she,Bob and Souchiro were nearly killed for a lover's spat. Maya promises to tell the whole story to them...but only after they get home.

    Monday watched the sub of episode 6 of Cardcaptor Sakura it starts out with Chiharu telling the rest of the girls a scary story of seeing a "ghost". Sakura is frightened but Tomoyo and the others decide to go see if they can find it.When they do they all see different things, with Sakura seeing her mother.
    Later she,Kerebo and Tomoyo go back to check to see if it's a ghost or a Clow Card.
    Again Sakura sees a vision of her mother but this time falls. Fortunately Yukito is there to see her and
    rescues her. After recovering they decide to go again and the same thing seems to happen, but this
    time Sakura remembers the words of Yukito and uses the FLY card just in time.
    She then manages to defeat the image by having it reveal it's true nature,which Kerebo rveals is the
    Illusion card.

    At the end she is running late for school and leaves a present for her mother as it was her birthday.

    Her brother is then surprised as he sees a vision of their mother; Nadeshiko tells her son that the reason she came is she had a feeling Sakura was in trouble.


    Tuesday episode 1 of Soul Link Ryota,Sayaka,Nao and Kazuhiko are all on their way to spacestation Aries to finish their training.When they get there they are met by Cellaria who will be their main instructor for their stay on the station. Ryota's brother Shuhei is also expected to arrive on the station.

    The main part of the episode was the establishing of the main characters,and the set up for later on.
    As such it was pretty light hearted considering the fate that awaits for them later on.


    So Shuhei might be a genius but he seems to be a stereotypical absent minded one so far and

    Kazuhiko seems to be the stereotypical jerk.OTOH I really do like Sayaka and Nao and Ryota.
    I would say the same about Cellaria if I hadn't read her character profile on Wiki.

    New anime season.

    Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken
    The anime to the light novel "That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime". The art is a bit simple but it's otherwise alright.
    Although, like most online game anime shows it's still having a super powered protagonist but it's kind of more interesting.

    Goblin Slayer
    The anime to the manga. A bloody realistic view of a realistic fantasy / rpg world. Much better than Sword Art Online in that sense.

    Sword Art Online - Alicization
    The AI arc of the series is finally here. And it still got all the fault of SAO, maybe even more so than before. Although, I find the theme interesting I'm not certain about the rest. It may not be that worth watching.

    To Aru Majutsu no Index III
    Season three of the show. It seems to get into another phase of the war of systems. Well, haven't watched season 2 and it doesn't seem to be any different from season 1. Probably won't be watching it either.

    Saw the trailer for the new Boogiepop series that is coming out next year. My initial reaction is "meh!"


    Wed. watched episode 1 of Wizard Barristers dubbed. Cecil's frog familiar seems to have a lot of

    "hop" related puns in the dub. Knowing that Moyo is really Lucifer/The Devil now makes me wonder if she really isn't Homaru all growned…. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing (joking).But it does give her a bit of a creepy feeling. Quinn is still totally awesome. Natsuna is understandable that she doesn't like Cecil off the bat for being late,etc. And then Cecil wanting to defend the gang that attacked her...


    Honestly I think if it weren't for the whole her being the Devil thing I might put Moyo at around
    #1 or #2 on my favorite lists but as is I have to put her lower around either #4 or #5.


    Th. episode 12 the finale of Matoionly have the bonus and OVA episodes left for next week. The girls finally make it to the higher dimensions but Clarus and Yuma can't go further leaving

    Matoi to go find her mother on her own. When she finally arrives at the Gate sh ehas to make a decision and decides to let everyone's wish be fulfilled. This helps her to reunite with her mother.
    Returning to Earth she's happy that her entire family is now together again and finally calls Shingo
    "dad".


    At the end though she is embarrassed to see her parents making out and wonders if she will have to see them:"make lovey dovey all the time." But Yuma tells her that Ms. Luciela has reported that there
    are still a few Nights left that haven't retreated and they need the help of the Exorcist Girls. Matoi
    replies that she can't any more because her "god" left wherein Yuma snaps her fingers and he reappears and Matoi finds herself in her Exorcist Girl outfit thinking as Yuma drags her with her:
    "My life's not ordinary!"

    Friday episode 2 of Pumpkin Scissors this was basically another version of The Deadliest Game except with a tank (and how many variations and versions have them done of that story since it first
    came out?). A noble reportedly uses his people for target practice and hunting; word gets out and Alice and company go to look into it. In the process the men are selected to be the next "participants" in the game, except Olan turns things around.
    Meanwhile the castle maids hold Alice hostage until she reveals that she's a daughter of one of the
    13 High Noble Houses...


    Saturday episode 3 of Magic Users Club following from episode 2 the Bell gets an interest in Akane and sends an android to kidnap her. The reporter who has been following the kids since Sae literally fell into the boat he rented in episode 1 tries to free her without success; meanwhile a spell
    to make things smaller backfires and Takakeru winds up lilliputian sized for a brief while.
    When this problem is solved the rest of the gang go after Akane but their magic backfires and instead of just the androids arms shrinking the whole thing does and she begins to fall.
    Fortunately Sae is able to cast a spell that gives Akane wings and everyone arrives safely on the ground.


    Sunday episode 10 of [b]Tenjho Tenge[/b] after Aya goes to sleep Maya tells the others the story they want to hear about her and Masataka's older brother. It takes place when she was a ninth grader and met Masataka's brother for the first time; back when her brother was alive and the leader of the school's KATANA club.Masataka's brother was more like Masataka at this point and not as tough as he later becomes. There's also someone stalking the KATANA members.
    During school one day a bully challenges Maya and she seems to loose and then Shin(her brother steps in)later she finishes the fight and Shin tells her she shouldn't have thrown it.Rumors reach

    Masataka's brother that Shin and Maya act more like lovers than brother and sister(this from Shin's own girlfriend).

    Later on another member of the KATANA's is attacked and as the attacker leaves with his jacket in her hand she takes off her cap to reveal: MAYA!

    Monday re-watched Season 1 episode 20 of Kaleido Star. After Yuri takes over the show Sora and friends have trouble finding work. After a couple of attempts fail they wind up at an amusement
    park. Even that at first doesn't work out; but then they decide to do an impromptu street performance for the park's customers. Toward the end of it a mysterious masked acrobat appears...


    Tuesday episode 2 of Soul Link. Shuhei, Aya and Akii arrive on the station just as
    the cadets are in the middle of pant ball based war games. Because of the regulation against fraternizing with civilians Ryota comes up with a plan that he and Sayaka can use to help her to
    contact Aya: Sayaka deliberately allows herself to be "killed" while Ryota covers for her. The plan nearly works except that Nao shoots him in the back at the last possible minute,thus winning the
    game for her and Kazuhiro.Sayaka barely makes it back in time.

    Afterwards as they are greeting Shuhei the red alert alarm goes off...

    Wed. episode 2 of Wizard Barristers Cecil comes up with the idea that to save the client they should go out and get a member of the No Face gang to prove he isn't one of their members.
    Unfortunately she and Ageha get captured in the process and their client is about to be sentenced to death when they arrive with the witness. The prosecution is of course upset but the judge allows the witness and his testimony saves the client.
    Later Hani points out that well the client might have been innocent of the charge that still doesn't mean he isn't guilty.

    This had a fun opening sequence with Moyo and Cecil being chased by Ageha's brother down the street.Later on they have lunch and Moyo shows proof that she really is the devil by putting a ton of catsup and whipped cream on her food...I mean she drowned the food...gotta be the devil to do that! Laughing Laughing


    Th. the OVA and Bonus Episode to Matoi not much to say about the Bonus episode as it was basically a clip episode narrated by Yuma. The OVA was a bunch of silly funny as it basically spoofed both Ghostbusters (even down to the van and an appearance by a Night version of Slimer!)
    and Idol Girl Groups.Poor Matoi thinks it was all a dream at the end until she goes out the door and everything is starting like in her dream. Luciela as the girls' manager when they got to the Idol phase of it was funny as she did a really good stage mom bit. And then Shingo and Shiori acting as newlyweds again making Matoi wish she hadn't gone to the Highest Dimension to rescue her mom was even more fun!


    Overall I rather enjoyed the series and it should be in the collection of any Magic Girl fan.

    Friday episode 3 of Pumpkin Scissors Alice and the team are sent to a village to help them rebuild a train tunnel; but when they get there they learn that the villagers have turned sour on the military because of events of the now too long ago past. Then disaster hits when the headman's son decides to take things into his own hands and lend a hand by operating the special train that the Pumpkin Scissors squad brought with them. He winds up getting stuck in the tunnel and Alice and the headman wind up working together to free him. This leads to a change of heart and as the villagers start working on the tunnel Alice orders her team to help them out.


    Saturday episode 4 of Magic Users' Club OVA. The club takes a break at the beach but unfortunately the Manga Club arrives to make things tough on Takakeru. He tells the rest of the Magic Users' Club about how the president of the Manga Club used to tease him and give him a rough time when they were children. Later he disappears and Sae finds him in a cave where he found the grimoire.

    That night the president of the manga club invites Takakeru to do some magic tricks and Sae accompanies him, he tells her that they don't realize it's real magic but just tricks. In the process he casts a spell that makes a wand crow if anyone tells a lie. During the performance Sae asks the manga club president about Takakeru and she lies revealing she does have feelings for him. Later at a bonfire Nanaka asks her if it bothers her and Sae tries to lie but her wand crows...!


    Sunday episode 11 of Tenjho Tenge Continuing the flashback it's revealed that Maya has been attacking the KATANA Club members as a means of getting stronger because she has no special powers of her own. Shin doesn't want her to do this but rather to always remain by his side. It's also revealed that he killed their parents with the family sword.It's also shown that Shin's girlfriend is actually part of a family subservient to the family of Masataka's and has the job of watching those with supernatural powers. This is why she was given the "job" of being Shin's girlfriend,except she wound up having actual feelings for him.

    Aya appears briefly in this episode wanting to know where Shin went as Maya is contemplating the empty sword case.

    Now we know why Maya was so concerned about Aya during the fight when her Dragon made an appearance...

    Monday re-watched Blood,The Last Vampire still the best of the franchise with Blood-C:The Last Dark movie coming in second. Not only that but one of the best horror movies,animated or live, of all time. That it's set during the Vietnam War as well as the animation is what makes it stand the test of time. Hard to believe it's nearly 20 years old and still looks as fresh as the day it was created.

    Tuesday episode 3 of Soul Link Aya gets locked into a locker while the other civilians are evacuated off the station. The terrorists take the station's command center over but Kazuhiko finds the secondary commander center and is able to lock them out from the rest of the station.
    Because the last of the escape shuttles have left Ryouta,Nao, Sayaka and the others are now stranded on board the Aries.

    The commander of the terrorist commandos gives Karen a dressing down for her little massacre, also Aya winds up thanking them for rescuing her from the locker. Yeah, that whole part was kinda weird.

    Watched episode 3 of Wizard Barristers dubbed on Wednesday night. This flashbacked to when Hani was still working as a prosecutor and had not awakened as a Wud yet. He prosecuted a stuntman who was a Wud and whose powers had caused the death of another stuntman. Later the stuntman's girlfriend goes after the director who she claims was the one responsible. At her trial Hani unleases the bonds that keep her powers in and she starts attacking; Cecil wants to help but Hani holds her back.
    But in the end she gets involved and her latent powers start to activate.
    Later on a pair of mysterious men are talking about the events and Cecil's powers increasing.

    This episode also has a scene where Moyo takes Natsuna out to lunch and the later confesses she is jealous of Cecil because she hasn't had a criminal case yet.
    Also Moyo again shows how devilish she is by burying her food in mayo and catsup (isn't that one of the signs of the apocalypse or something?)

    Th. ep. 1 of Squid Girl. Squiddy arrives on the land to punish mankind for everything they have ever done to the seas. Unfortunately she decides to make The Lemon Beach House her
    place of operations, and nobody believes her.They all think she's cosplaying. And then Chizuru as her take orders and wait tables.Confused she does what she's told into she comes to her senses.

    In the next part Squiddy meets Takeru,the girl's younger brother who proceeds to make friends with her.But when he puts a cap similiar to hers on she thinks he's another squid person.

    Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara
    A typical slow paced high school show but it's actually a grandma-granddaughter show. Don't expect typical all romance story even though it's there of course. As such it's nice and the animation is up to date (dust flying in sunlight).

    Attack on Titan S3
    Seems to be getting back on track for an unending story. :/

    Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken ep.5
    It was a bit abridged but came out good. I like it. I'm just not certain as it seem to be getting bad later on based on the typical style displayed in the OP.

    Goblin Slayer ep.4
    Has been keeping itself brief and to the point. Good adaptation but this will shorten its life. Too bad. I certainly would like it to go somewhat longer.

    Monday saw the dub of episode 11 of Flying Witch this is the one with the flying whale in it that

    Makoto, Akane and Chinatsu go see. It's also the one where it's revealed that Akane's familiar Kenny is also a part time archaeologist. The ending where Anzu's mom sends Akane her tab via owl is hysterical.


    Also watched episodes 6-8 of the Petit Witch minisodes.


    Tuesday saw episode 4 of Soul Link, the green haired girl finally reveals her name: Yuu, but only because Shuhsei kept calling her "Rocketboobs"! Laughing

    They discover survivors in one of the other habitat pods; Sayaka hopes one of them is Aya but it turns out instead to be the assistant manager of the hotel and Akii. Akii then surprises everyone by turning out to be Kazuhiko's younger sister. The two of them wind up having a brother/sister fight.


    Meanwhile a wounded terrorist that Nao was trying to help turns literally into slime and ends up melting.


    Back with the terrorists,Karen is given new orders and told to be more careful this time around..

    Just sent in my most recent order to Rightstuf today. Gasaraki and part 2 of
    The Pet Girl of Sakurasabo(sp?...know I didn't get the title right). I ordered part 2 because it looks like part 1 is no longer available. Gasaraki was only 29.99 and The Pet Girl was only 14.99, which is why I ordered both,that and I don't know how much longer the latter is going to be around for now.

    Friday saw episode 5 of Pumpkin Scissors in the hospital Olan makes a new friend; Oraldo joins
    Martis in his research; Olan's new friend decides to commit suicide by jumping off the hospital roof when his boss fires him without warning and they both nearly go over the side.

    Saturday episode 6 finale for Magic Users Club OVA. The gang try a spell to free Sae from the Bell but it of course backfires. Then with the help of Jeffy Sae casts her own spell that winds up not only freeing everyone but turns the Bell into a giant cherry tree. The aliens decide Earth is not worth they're while and withdraw.

    Sunday episode 13 of Tenjho Tenge using Isuzu as a hostage Bunishi goes after his former friend--Shin. Unfortunately it turns out that even though he's the toughest non-martial artist in the school he still ends up being wiped across the street by Shin.Lot of blood being spilled in this one but mainly Bunishi's. Shin claims he is doing it to protect Maya.

    Monday re-watched all of I"s raw. Since it was only two episodes and episode 1 ends on a cliff hanger I decided to watch both. The last couple times I watched I watched I"s Pure so hadn't seen I"s proper for a long while.

    Tuesday episode 5 of Soul Link the Terrorists use a decoy to try to fool the cadets but Kazuhiko figures it out and goes to intercept. Aki argues against it but he orders her to stay at the second control room. Yuu volunteers to help Aki. Kazuhiko ends up in a battle royale against Karen and has Aki shut the blast doors after he uses Karen's bomb to seal off the area. On his way back he looses contact with the others.

    Welp so far Cellaria doesn't seem to have made her move yet. So many red herrings and false leads up to now.

    Wed. re-watched episode 5 of Wizard Barristers Cecile is teamed up with "Grandpa" Kamakiri to help defend one of the partners of their rival firm. Because of Kamakiri's age and the way he does things, Cecile gets upset that she is teamed up with him. Later both Seseri and Natsuna chide her for her attitude. Natsuna even reminds her that Kamakiri has ways of grasping the situation and looking at people that she still doesn't realize.
    Natsuna is proven right when Kamakiri surprises Cecile with information he's dug up. They win the case but because the prosecution suspects magical use Kamakiri pretends to have a stroke to avoid a fine, but Cecile worries about him until the rest of the Butterfly staff tell her that's the way he is..

    Th, re-watch of episode 3 of Squid Girl: The gang do an old style Japanese Courage Test to scare Squiddie because she doesn't believe in ghosts. During it she gets separated from the rest of them and uses her ability to illuminate herself to find them,but they just run away because they really think she's ghost,later some real ghosts help Squiddie find her way back home; Squiddie is playing in the ocean with Takero when she is scared by a couple of floats shaped like killer whales.
    Takero nearly drowns but Goro saves him. Later he agrees to teach Takero how to swim (thanks to the power of Chizuru's smile! Very Happy Laughing ) Squiddie wants to prove she's a better swimmer but fails. In the end Takero tries to calm Squiddie's fears of the floats; finally Nagisa arrives. Squiddie is happy because she finally meets a human who is scared of her even though everyone else tries to calm Nagisa's nerves and show her there is nothing to fear from Squiddie...
