    Kimagure Orange Road came in the mail today. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy We now do the "Dance of Joy" Laughing Laughing

    Friday episode 9 of Yuki Yuna Karin is informed by Taisha that the other girls have become psychologically unstable. Togo demonstrates to Fu and Yuki how she has been trying to commit suicide but her Faeries keep preventing her. She does this by trying to commit suppaka in front of them but the Faeries take the blade away from her before she can complete the act. Later after learning that Itsuki has been accepted for a singing contest Fu gets full on Dark Mercury and plans on destroying the Taisha but Karin and Yuki both try to stop her; in the end it's Itsuki who succeeds..

    Saturday episode 34 of You're Under Arrest the Chief decides to take some fresh air and takes a day off at Tokyo Tower. Unfortunately it's the same day that there's a 67 mph wind that closes off the Tower's Observation Deck. When a petty thief takes off with a purse he chases him out to the outside and deck and saves the man; unfortunately a boy who's a member of his school's detective club gets trapped with the Chief on the outside when the wind brings a girder down blocking their exit. The rest of the precinct have to come up with a plan to save them despite the winds..

    Sunday episode 2 of Brynhildr in the Darkness Kanna is introduced. Murakami learns that Neko
    is not only incapable of dong simple math but also can barely read at a fifth grade level.(IIRC this changes over the next few episodes). Interesting the dub version of Kanna shows a lot more emotion than her Japanese counterpart which played more on the fact that her "voice" was mechanically produced.

    Wed. episode 21 of Gasaraki with the help of Captains Ataka and Kaburagi, Yushiro is able to infiltrate the American air base at Yokota in search of Mahiro. But battling the F-14s stationed there delays him and she is taken away before he can stop the transfer.

    Th. episode 4 of Humanity Has Declined The Mediator, Y and the Assistant work their way through numerous different manga genre in hopes that the one they find themselves won't be canceled and they'll be able to find a way out. In the epilog after the ED another con is shown and this time The Mediator is shown unsuccessfully trying to sell her own manga (she only sells four).

    Monday re-watched episode 62 of Rorouni Kenshin the end of the Kyoto arc. So interesting that Doi Mika played Megumi. Always think of her as Rara Ayuko or Reindevila.

    Tuesday re-watched episode 10 of Black Lagoon Revy and Roberta fight it out. Popcorn time! Laughing Cool

    Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative
    Looks like the continuation of Unicorn. Visually, it's a mix of different anime art and a downgrade from the previous highlevel (movies/OVA). Story wise from what I've seen it's looks so-so.
    Not really sure if it's worth it but certainly a must for fans.

    Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari ep21
    After 3 episodes the fight with the 3-heroes religion is over. And the main arc starts. I got to say the last semi-recap episode was the best of recapping. It's the same with the novel. The simple trick was making a discussion on the issue(s).
    Naofumi get's his good name reinstated by the Queen and the king and the elder daughter are punished. Serves them right.
    The season's about to end so I dunno what comes next. Definitely not enough time but maybe they will introduce the counterparts... At this rate the series has potential for at least two or three more seasons.

    One Punch Man S2
    has become rather like those unending shows: not much progress if at all and more like daily grinding
    I've more or less abandon it.

    Shingeki no Kyojin S3/4 ep.54
    I'm lost on whether it's season 3 or 4. I think it's 4. Anyhow, the scout force desperately charge the ape giant leader while shooting smoke rounds. He throws bunch of stones decimating them to the last. Meanwhile Levi kills his guards and is about to kill him. But Levi talks too much and he's snatched by his subordinate and taken to savefty while he minions charge at Levi....
    The series seems to have lost the way, and wandering, and story seems kind of random now. From what I saw Levi got his own manga series awhile ago. But hey I never thought it was good to begin with just interesting.

    One Punch Man surprised me that they even do a Season 2, the concept sounded too much like a one and done to me.

    Wed. episode 22 of Gasaraki The fall out from the Yokota Air Base. Yushiro confronts his older brother. The TA Squad is informed of their new mission and are shocked when Yushiro shows up. Misuzu suddenly appears at the Lab (she seems to have some sort of connection with Yushiro as she was thinking of him minutes before she got out of bed)…

    Th. episode 5 of Humanity Has Declined The Fairies warn the Mediator of EM Waves before they disappear and give her a Manual. The village celebrates Electricity Culture; the Mediator meets a robot girl named Pion. Later the Mediator and her Assistant are part of an expedition to explore some old ruins. They're stuck and are attacked by shape shifting blobs but rescued by Pion (Mizuki Nana).

    Friday episode 11 of Yuki Yuna the other girls try to stop Togo. After going Mankai at last and being left deaf and blind Karin tells Yuki she's the only one who can save Togo.

    comment: After wanting to destroy the Taisha herself, one would think that Fu would be the one who would understand Togo's feelings and why she's doing what she's doing.

    Saturday episode 36 of Your'e Under Arrest When little Maho looses her kitten, Ken,Mayuki and Natsumi come to the rescue.

    comment: I been thinking of getting the first season but knowing that one of the girls is trans would make it weird (no not Mayuki or Natsumi but Yuriko's partner) since I'm used, from what I have of it, seeing her as a woman.

    Sunday episode 4 of Brynhildr Murakami forces Saori to use her power to rewind time. That locks her but the Lab eventually triggers her eject and she melts before their eyes, but before they retrieve the pills they see a strange creature that Murakami kills and Neko freaks out. Later their class goes to the beach; at school it turns out that Neko is actually quite intelligent, Murakami figures that her conditioning at the Lab is why she didn't know much to start with. Kasumi winds up staying at the observatory and uses her power to forge her way into school. She makes her first teasing play at Murakami. Kotori shows up and asks to join the club..

    comment: The ending to this episode with the segueing between the Lab and the observatory is a brilliant work of red herring since it makes it look like Kotori is the spy.

    Monday episode 6 of Moribito, Balsa tries to take Chagum over the Misty Blues through a high mountain pass but their pursurers catch up with them. Later they arrive back at the capitol disguised, in time to witness Chagum's "Funeral Cortege".

    Comment: Watching the DVD on the BD Player and on HD Tv really shows the series full potential off. Especially during the chase sequence and the funeral as they looked even more three dimensional than on regular tv or watching on a DVD player.

    Tuesday episode 11 of Black Lagoon Shenhua's introduced. The Triad (Mr. Chang) hires the Lagoon Company as part of a plan to deliver important papers. Dutch and Benny act as decoy as Revy and Rock use the Zodiac to deliver the papers. But they run into a trap and Rock is captured; Revy barely escapes after meeting up with Shenhua and her partner. They want to finish the job but Revy wants to get Rock, since he has the papers..

    episode 23 of Gasaraki on Wednesday. Two of the older brothers discuss whether or not Misuzu may be a Kai like Yushiro and decide to keep the other brother out of it. The US President and his cabinet decide to have Symbol feign an attack on one of the targets in Japan in order to determine where the real HQ is. So Mahiro is sent in. When Yushiro realizes that she is the pilot of the Fake he goes against orders and leaves his position. Yushiro tries to talk to her but all she can say is she wants to fight. The CEO of Symbol watches.
    Finally Yushiro steps out of his TA and takes off his helmet,this brings Mahiro back to herself. Dismounting she tells him she'll return for him but she has something to do first.

    episode 6 of Humanity Has Declined Thursday, it turns out that Pion and her partner Oyage are in reality the Pioneer and Voyager space probes come back as humanoids. The Mediator gets in trouble for helping them because they don't want to leave Earth again for the coldness of space.
    In the end she is punished by having her hair cut and being given a dozen or so duties for the next several months.

    Finished Yuki Yuna Friday with episode 12, ironically if you read about Season 2 everyone but Yuki actually does seem to forget about Togo once she suddenly disappears between seasons. That's the one thing she was afraid of but Yuki keeps reminding her that she'll always be with her. All in all I have to say that this was the most Madokalike magic girl series I've seen since well Madoka! Cool Laughing Definitely has all the right feels.

    Saturday watched the dub of episode 49 of You're Under Arrest introduction of Inspector Kinoshita. She forms a special task force to go after car thieves and winds up patrolling with Natsume (who isn't a very happy camper about it...!). Later after they nearly catch the gang the Inspector admits her admiration for Natsume and offers her a new post. Natsume and Miyuki talk about it at the end and Natsume tells her she's going to take it and Miyuki says, yes, she knows.

    Sunday episode 5 of Brynhildr during a star gazing in the hills near the observatory Kanna gets a premonition of Kotori standing over a dead Neko. She warns Murakami about it. Kotori is confronted by the others but says she's not hunting any witches and is astonished when the other girls reveal they too are witches.
    Later the premonition changes and Kanna tells Murakami he's to be the victim not Neko; when he learns it takes place at a nearby lake he promises they won't go near there. But when a message comes in from a friend of Kasumi's Neko goes off to save her and uses her power to get past Murakami who rushes off after her but not until Kasumi throws him a walkie talkie.
    When they get to the lake they're too late as they witness the death of the other witch
    But they don't know where Kotori is either...

    Monday the raw version of Haibane Renmei episode 3. Rakka and Hikari go to the Haibane Renmei temple to have Rakka enrolled; Rakka spends the day observing Reki take care of the Young Feathers; Rakka and Kuu visit Hikari at the bakery where she offers them "pancakes" (more like donuts)
    baked using the Halo maker.

    Tuesday episode 12 of Black Lagoon Some how despite their constant fighting Revy and Shenhua manage to rescue Rock. Then because the driver is completely stoned (did he think he was a in a Cheech and Chong movie or what?) they start going the wrong way and the terrorists chase after them. The girls take turns holding them off( when they're not fighting each other). Some how they manage to make it to the DMZ safe and sound. Rock tells them he left the briefcase behind but Revy had the papers on her all the time ( the CIA agent complains because of the sweat making the paper all damp). Revy then gets on Rocks back...

    Comment: Revy's real name is revealed to be Rebbeca.

    Wed. episode 24 of Gasaraki the American Fakes attack but are driven back, but then the American President does the unexpected: he concedes and orders the grain moratorium ended.Everyone, including his own cabinet were expecting a call to war. Nishida after talking to the President goes to his office with an aide and commits seppuku. Meanwhile Mahiro says so long to her mentor at Symbol as she makes her decision to walk away..

    Th. episode 7 of Humanity Has Declined the Mediator is told to look for her grandfather's assistant who has been at the hospital. Unfortunately he has run off and she and the female doctor go looking for him. She meets the fairies who give her a banana and slips and falls. Waking up she meets her grandfather in a chariot who asks why she isn't looking for the assistant. She meets the female doctor and goes looking in the woods and meets another girl looking for something. They come across an old stone baking oven. A fairy appears and gives her a banana....wash and rinse and replay... lol!

    comment: The Mediator seems unaware that the various girls she meet are really versions of
    herself. Whether clones or from somewhere further on the time-line...

    Friday episode 1 of Inukami glad I read the manga before getting the anime as they say in Latin it starts in media res or in the middle. So you really have to know a bit about who Yoko and Keita are and why the latter is so obsessed with using frog amulets in his spell casting. The overall episode had Karina bail Keita out of jail after another one of Yoko's "punishments" in order that the dual help take down a dead novelist turned Demon who attacks couples by turning them naked. In the end Keita's disappointed because the novelist/ demon only turns males naked! They do manage to stop him though( with a bit of degrading humiliation on Yoko's part) but once again Keita winds up in jail for being a pervert! Laughing Laughing Laughing
    comment: Another Horie Yui anime. Cool cheers cheers cheers

    Saturday episode 50 of You're Under Arrest Miyuki's down because Natsume's taken the job discussed at the end of last episode. Ken tries to cheer her up but his efforts fall flat and he winds up getting Yuriko and the other policewomen pissed at him. To add insult to injury while on duty Miyuki has another run in with Strike Man, who mercilessly refers to her as," My arch nemesis Home Run Girl's Sidekick!". Miyuki does manage to hit Strike Man's pitch to his chagrin and he drives off.
    But Miyuki's real woes aren't over as the car is damaged; so she puts in extra time to repair it.

    Sunday episode 6 of Brynhildr Murakami convinces Kotori to use her power to help them capture the Witch who had killed her friend. Then he hangs her up and puts a bag on her head.
    The next day he returns to the observatory to find no-one there. The girls have gone outside to cool off with the hose. Later they have a picnic and Murakami proposes that they approach someone he knows( his uncle) to solve their pill problem. He has Neko join him to demonstrate.
    At his uncle's lab the demonstration goes off well and Murakami's uncle is intrigued enough to look into the situation..

    Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari ep.23
    Our shield heroe's party has made it to the training island and has made friends with (spoilers) future enemies.
    This is the true beginning of the main arc and side trips.

    Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyojin S3 ep57
    Go to say the show is slipping back into its usual. And from what I've seen in some manga chapters it's not gonna be better ever.

    Fairy Gone ep.11
    A coupe is taking place in the empire and our left alone heroes are forced into action facing one of the legendary fairy wielding warriors.
    The show/story has potential and it looks great, but they kind of botched the intro section making it rather mediocre. It's only now that it starts to look the part. Too late imho and i'm on/off dropping it.
