This scene was pure win ^^
Yes Chihiro, it’s happening to you.
Don’t worry, this isn’t one those “I think I’m learning Japanese through anime” scenarios (though picking up some stock phrases phonetically is more or less inevitable, I think).
Nice going Kirie >.<
And Dan’Ichirou now joins the ranks of anime’s hall of crap excuses for fathers.
Finally some progress!
☑ Finish, and subsequently review Bamboo Blade
☑ At the same time, get around to finishing Revolutionary Girl Utena
That’s two out of thirteen down. It was awesome to finally cross Bamboo Blade out of my never-ending list. To finish Utena is also very very fulfilling, I think. Something that I’d almost consider a “must watch”. I’m almost halfway through Kannagi, and also eleven episodes in to Gundam SEED. As for the “Cover more than one show during the Spring 2012 season” I’ve decided to cover Sankarea and Tasogare Otome x Amnesia, effective come next week. For a multitude of reasons, I decided not to cover Medaka Box (for now at least). Yumestate’s Anime Watcher’s Club is also well underway (check it out here and here) I’m gonna check that out after we finish Aoi Bungaku. So yeah, I’m way past the midway point of April with a lesser amount of progress than I had hoped for, but I think I can make it ^^
If I were to name one show that I’ve stalled for the longest time, it would be this one. I don’t even remember when I heard about it, and whenever I got around clearing my backlogs, this title would just pass me by. I had my reasons: like how I wasn’t used to an all-girl cast, or how this show is sport-themed. But deep down I knew “I really want to watch this”. After finally subjecting to my innermost desires I gave in and gave this series another audience.
Rom-Com Horror? Yes, it’s a fine season indeed.
Seriously. I did not expect this episode to be this good.
Starting up Spring 2012 for me is this here first episode of Nisio Isin’s famous/infamous manga, Medaka Box. And boy was I psyched for this one ^^
