    After a short hiatus the shows are airing again
    Sword Art Online - Alicization ep.13
    So 70 years after Quinella became Administrator she discovered that her memory capacity has reached its limit and decided to use a young girl as a repository. This was an opportunity a 2nd control check system of the cardinal system waited for to take over the girl and stop Quinella. However, she failed and had to flee leading to her exile in the library of the game where Quinella had no power. This is when Quinella build and enslaved the integrity knights. To prevent them from escaping her grasp she keeps their most important memories in her chamber at the top of the tower (of course). Hence, Kirito and Eugeon are tasked to retrieve them.

    Goblin Slayer ep.12
    After the short Boss fight we get to see the celebration and the revelation of Goblin Slayer's face to the guild members. We don't get to see it, though.

    Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken ep.14
    Things have been cut down recently with recent shows. After a short depiction of the battle Gelmud arrives to prevent his plan from falling apart. He gets pummeled by our slime and ends up killed and consumed by the Orc Lord who did it to fullfill Gelmud's wish (Karma). Hence, Rimuru and the transformed Orc Disaster fight in a contest of consuming each other and regeneration. Rimuru wins by a margin due to his higher rate. He promises to take on the sins of the orcs. Since the matter has been settled he releases the Kirins from his service but they instead swear (eternal) filthy.

    Got my copy of NieA under 7 yesterday from Rightstuf. Still haven't heard from them as regards the question about the coupon I sent them. So I guess if I don't hear from them before the 22 I will order Yuki Yuna Is A Hero at full price and in March order Banner. But really I think I need someone to help me so that I don't go overboard with my purchases.


    Monday re-watched episode 8 of Full Moon, Mitsuki is excited because "Myself" is finally out and can't wait to hear what the other kids in class have to say. Unfortunately no-one seems to even know about Full Moon or her single. This puts her in the dumps thinking she failed. Then while walking down the street she sees one of her classmates talk on her cellphone. The girl is talking about

    "Myself" and all Mitsuki hears her say is:" It's no good."
    So she gets even more depressed. In order to cheer her up Meroko disguises herself as Mitsuki as starts hawking copies of the CD. Takuto calls her out for it on the roof and she has to apologize. But when Mitsuki walks back downstairs she encounters a group of the girls from her class including the one who she had seen on the street. When they start talking about the song she asks why the other girl thought it was no good. The other girl replies it wasn't the song it was the fact that she couldn't find a copy because it was all sold out. Then the girls try to sing it but when Mitsuki does they all applaud..


    Tuesday episode 14 of The Pet Girl, as Christmas approaches Chichiyo tells Sorata that she's going to close the dorm in order to have some fun in Australia; Jin wants Misaki to fall in love with him because he loves her too; Misaki is upset because she wanted Jin to hurt her; Aoyama and Sorata go out on a "Not-A-Date" Date; Shiina is escorted by Sorata to an awards banquet and then walks out because she wants to give him something..

    Wed. saw episode 2 of Gasaraki the Americans and NATO invade Belgistan but wind up getting repulsed. The Gowas studying the film conclude that the Belgistanis have something similar to their own TAs.

    Yushiro's younger sister questions what they are doing to him but of course is repulsed by the servants who try to prevent her from seeing him. Then they have Yushiro go through another round of simulations..


    Th. episode 12 the finale for Season 1 of Squid Girl, Squiddie and Eiko enter a beach volleyball contest to win a 3-D tv; Squiddie looses her powers and decides to move back to the sea making even

    Friday episode 15 of Pumpkin Scissors The squad continues its war on the drug dealers. Martis and Orlando meet the refugees again and Orlando puts on an act of trying to rape the young woman they had met earlier; Martis decides to get in the act, and the men react just like they're hoping by beating the two of them to a crisp. The father and the other men declare that they're capable of looking for work if they want it.

    One of the drug dealers goes to their boss looking for orders but finds nobody there.Then he finds a door open that leads down a hidden staircase when he gets to the bottom he finds the man in the fire proof suit. He goes immediately to Section 3 to tell everything he knows. This includes the date of the next shipment. The squad without Olrando goes out as he is given a special assignment..


    Saturday episode 7 of Akikan Yell winds up going to school with the rest of the gang. All the boys are instantly jealous because she calls Kakeru "Kakeru-sama". They're mad because she's cute and of course he's already got Melon and Najimi. During class it's discovered that Yell gets distracted by bouncing things, so during PE when the class is playing baseball Yuyurin distracts Yell with her bouncing boobs (is Yuyurin not wearing a sports bra?) this episode seemed to be all about the characters' fetishes for some reason as Kakeru distracts Kizaki with playing horse with a text book..


    Sunday episode 23 of Tenjho Tenge There's a lyrical bit as it's summer and Shin wants to spend one last day at the beach with his younger sister Maya.Later the Juken club gets together for their one and only picture,but everyone starts fighting before they can get one last good one.Then it shifts to the fight between Mitsuomi and Shin. Shin looks like he is all beat up and some of the students want Mana to stop the fight but she refuses because it can only stop when one or the other resigns from it or can't fight any more. Then Shin surprises everyone by coming back. Unfortunately during this part of the fight Mana gets in the way thinking he's finally finished and in the process he mortally wounds her. When Mitsuomi finally beats Shin, Mana tells him she knew this day would come not because she had any special ability like his Dragon's Eye but because she's a girl. Then she pierces his left ear with a needle and the two of them die together.

    Sword Art Online - Alicization ep.14
    Both protagonist forward and face of an integrity knight.
    One fight and a bit of random small talk is all there is in this episode.

    New anime season!
    Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai
    Alternative world/history about a zeppelin merchant/transporter and their escort ladies of the sky. Yes, finally another aircraft action anime.. It's a near full 3D anime except for BG, and random cast. 3D characters are rather years old standard and somewhat tacky. Certainly not the best style there is like Arpeggio of Blue Steel and more like Land of the Lustrous.

    Domestic na Kanojo
    Another anime about strange relationships... The manga is probably better.

    Girly Air Force
    The result of marrying "Idol Defense Force Hummingbird" and "Yukikaze" and turn it into girly mecha genre plus worthless harem hero. Automaton like girls and their supped up fighters who can only get up to speed when socializing with the guy... fighting alien fighters. Meh

    Kemurikusa
    Another anime mixture I don't know where to begin or what to think. Pseudo mecha humanoid girl lifeforms fight other red mecha monsters (who create a red mist). Suddenly a human boy appears confusing everyone... Probably meh

    And this is why a lot of people are gravitating back to the older types of anime.. Suspect

    Monday: In a land infested with dragons one lone brave and beautiful young sorceress and her equally beautiful and brave companion are the only ones standing in the way between total destruction and the freedom of all mankind....Unfortunately this ain't about them (whoever they might be)...instead....we got Lina Inverse and Naga The Serpent in Slayers Gorgeous! lol!


    God Help US All!


    Tuesday episode 15 of The Pet Girl Sorata winds up taking Aoyama,Shiina and Misaki home with him for the break. Turns out his younger sister Yuko is a big fan of Shiina's and when she realizes that Shiina is the same person as the author of her favorite manga asks her to autograph the magazine it appears in.

    Meanwhile Yuko and Sorata's dad is refusing to let her take the exams for Sorata's school and Sorata has to wind up talking him to allowing her to stating that when she fails to pass the exam she'll be more willing to try to get into a school closer to home(this happens when their father is taking a bath and is drunk). The father agrees to this.


    Before the gang leaves again, Sorata's family takes everyone to the mountains to view the New Year's sun. Everyone shots out their plans for the New Year starting with Misaki...

    Wed. episode 3 of Gasaraki The Japanese want to send their TAs to Belgistan but there's a sticky point with the Constitution. The minister who was holding back dies suddenly and Gowa Industries prepares to leave. Yushiro and his sister have one last talk in the family estate. They meet by the old water mill. She reminds him that she taught her that if you make a wish while the wheel is still spinning it will come true; he reassures her that he'll come back home safely.

    In Belgistan Mihuro's people are worried that the leader of Belgistan is coming unhinged and is getting to be too unreliable.


    This episode reveals that Yushiro holds the honorary rank of Captain even though he is just a civilian.


    Th. the Mini-Squid Girl minisodes/OVAs of Squid Girl: 1) Mini-Squid Girl meets Dark Mini-Squid Girl and is chased all around Eiko's bedroom. Later when Dark Mini-Squid Girl falls out the window and is threatened by Dobermans Mini-Squiddie saves her, 2) Mini-Squid Girl is hungry and tries to eat a shrimp left out by Chizuru but Sanae sees her and chases her all around the Lemon Beach House causing damage. But the shrimp is a magic shrimp and enables Mini-Squiddie to grow giant size and stop on Sanae...who wakes up and tells her dream to everyone...


    Next week Jinto and Lafiel! Cool

    Friday episode 16 of Pumpkin Scissors so it winds up that the henchmen for "Rat Face" were told to all carry some sort of code book. Captain Hunks looks through the one that the informant gave him; meanwhile Section 1's "Claymore" Division has arrived just before Section 3. Alice faces them with a double bladed sword (like what Darth Sidious used) and goes on the attack while Olan and Martis chase down the man from the 908. As this is going on the female doctor gives the samples she took from Olan to her blind assistant stating that soon they'll know whether the 908 or 901 will come up on top...


    Saturday episode 8 of Akikan Najimi and Kakeru finally get their date and she makes her take her to an water amusement park. Yell and Melon run into each other as they had the same idea of trailing their owners. They nearly run into Boduko who is with Misaki. Fortunately Misaki keeps her busy. Otoya and Kizaki are also at the park and so are Yuyurin and Jigoro. Of course the later is having the worse time of it since he winds up getting thrown into the wrong side of the pool just as
    Najimi and Kakeru coming splashing down and run over him without knowing. Then when they get on the ferris wheel Yell goes crazy and Melon has to calm her down...


    Sunday episode 24, tv series finale of Tenjho Tenge Mitsuomi takes over as head of the family by staging a coup. He gets Maya so they can stop Aya from using the reiki blade. Then they encounter Sochirou and Bob, the former who wants to fight him. Aya watches on the school roof and remembers she was going to root for Sochirou no matter what. Then she decides to get rid of the reiki blade, but Maya dissuades Mitsuomi from destroying it. Aya leaps from the roof happily toward Sochirou who still is confused as to why she keeps referring to him as her "husband".

    This episode had a lot more lighter moments than the preceding ones. For example two or three times the characters break the fourth wall: Masataka menacing that he doesn't have much to do during the episode, Bob telling Sochirou not to whine about not having enough screen time and Sochirou himself stating that he is the main character..."The main character has arrived!"

    Next the two episode OVA and then on to NieA under 7

    Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken ep. 15-16
    After defeating the Orc disaster, Rimuru was made chancellor of the forest alliance. The dwarf king came by to check and after measuring him decided to form a trade partnership, hence, recognition giving their alliance legitimacy similar to a country.
    Demon lord Milim gets interested and comes to have fun. She's an ancient loli childish dragonoid but is crafty due to her female instinct... She is triggered by anything relating to her appearance etc. Hence, a new annoying dangerous member joints.
    The show has been abridging a lot recently. The manga is pretty good and the difference to the novel has been rather reasonably small. So I do recommend the manga if you don't want the novels.


    Mob Psycho 100 Season 2 ep.3
    So far it's just regular everyday life as usual for the show. However, in this episode we get some sort of hint as Mob senses and starts to grasp seeing something beyond. It hints at some powerful perhaps evil existence beyond imagination as his master guesses it in his mind. You gotta be dense if you don't get the clue at this point. Laughing
    Anyhow, now that his associates know his power, he's kind of popular and they help him out when his life deficit gets in the way. See bully scene.

    Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari = the rising of the shield hero ep.1-2
    Naofumi, a 20 year old college student otaku/gamer. One day he finds a book by accident in the library and reads from it and gets summoned a la Fushigi Yûgi/Neverending Story. He's summoned along with 3 others from different alternative japan(timeline?) as heroes to save the world by fighting everso increasing monster destruction waves from another realm or world? Despite being an experienced major guild leader in gaming he's the same as a virgin girl playing a game for the first time so he gets framed, looted and socially outcast by the country and he other heroes. Except for a blacksmith who's sympathetic. As the shield hero he cannot use any weapon (don't expect the author to be consistent). Alone, he's desperate to find a way to survive while harboring resentment & hate towards his enemies (everyone else). This conflict and related social things are the major theme of the story.
    Now he's managed to get a demi-human slave girl, Raphtalia, as a partner to fight for him. He basically starts to raise her. The enslavement magic spell contract mark binds them together. Raphtalia is an orphan from a demi-human town that got destroyed by the first wave. In the aftermath the human supremacy people of this country used the opportunity to raid and enslave the demi-humans. She's timid & fearful due to torture and abuse.
    *whew*
    The manga is very abridge and about double as long in terms of volume number compared to the novel. It's good to get up to speed but the novels are the best. That said it's kind of lacking. The strong points are obvious and not exactly exceptional or new. But the story is interesting. And yeah, it's harem, not excessive expressing it but also not less like the New Gate either. From the looks of it the anime pacing might be a bit slow yet abridge similar to the slime show. It doesn't get good yet for probably another 2 episodes...

    Monday watched Sailor Moon episode that introduced Sailor V/Venus dubbed. I watched it dubbed because I had already since the raw.Not a bad dub but special kudos to Queen Beryl's VA.

    Minako still has the coolest intro of any of the Sailor Guardians, perhaps because she's the first and original one.


    Tuesday episode 16 of The Pet Girl It's the big week. Sorata has to go make his presentation for his game; Aoyama has to get ready for her audition and uses Misaki's script ( Misaki tells her to use it to help her express her feelings toward Sorata); Yuko arrives to take the entrance exams. There's also a hint that Shiina is beginning to be jealous of Sorata and Aoyama's relationship. At the end Yuko tells her big brother to make up his mind and not be so indecisive when it comes to choosing between Aoyama and Shiina.


    Interesting enough Misaki is Sorata's senior even though she looks and acts younger.


    Thursday Lafiel and Jinto at last! Laughing Laughing Laughing
