Ano Natsu de Matteru 02 – Together With Senpai…

Here, have some oppai. You earned it.

「先輩といっしょ…」 (Senpai to Issho…)
“Together with Senpai…”

Now again, I’ll say that I haven’t seen Onegai Teacher, but the fact that Ichika kept saying “Onegai!” during the opening scene had me a little amused. Anyway this episode sure was an amusing one. Read the rest of this entry

Mouretsu Pirates 02 – My Power, The Power of Pirates

Unfortunately, there aren't any space shenanigans yet.

「私の力、海賊の力」 (Watashi no Chikara, Kaizoku no Chikara)
“My Power, A Pirate’s Power”

I still don’t know whether or not I’m blogging this show or not, especially since it’s a 2 cour show which I don’t particularly like doing. However, I found myself writing notes about this episode without even knowing it, so I may as well do a small write-up. It’s interesting how the OPs that have become my favourite of this season all have the J-POP sound, instead of the J-Rock sound I tend to enjoy. I really like Mouretsu Pirates, fun and goofy OP and I’m in love with the ED too. Read the rest of this entry

Senki Zesshou Symphogear 02 – Noise & Dissonance

Senki Zesshou Symphogear

「雑音と不協和音と」 (Zatsuon to Fukyouwaron to)
“Noise & Dissonance”

Right, so I haven’t made a post on the first episode, but that’s because 1.) I still don’t know if I’m fully back on the whole blogging thing and 2.) I’m still going through premiere episodes at the moment. That said, I’m not going to go through the events of the first episode, though I will say this. I miss Kanade already. That being said, I have to pay mention to the OP of this show, it’s one of my favourites this season. Read the rest of this entry

Ano Natsu de Matteru 01- That’s Troubling, Senpai

Ano Natsu de Matteru

「困ります、先輩。」 (Komarimasu, Senpai.)
“That’s Troubling, Senpai.”

Now, pretty much right after this first episode was aired it seemed the general population of the anime community thought of this show as an almost carbon copy of Onegai Sensei. Now I’ve not seen Onegai Sensei, but I have heard of the series, though I don’t know any thing about. So for me, the premise of this show is pretty new to me. If anything, the character designs reminded me a lot of Toradora!, another show I’ve not seen before (except for two scenes I was in fandubs for). You’ve got the black-haired character with the glasses, blue-haired character, the blue-haired girl, the red-haired girl and the loli-looking strawberry blonde girl who looks a lot like Taiga from Toradora! Both these shows were done by J.C Staff and apparently share the same character designer or something. Read the rest of this entry

Mouretsu Pirates 01 – Pirates Are Coming Through! [First Impressions]

Bodacious Space Pirates

「海賊、罷り通る」 (Kaizoku, Makaritooru)
“Pirates Are Coming Through!”

I was gonna do a quick post on Highschool DxD, but then I thought to myself: “Really…?” Instead, I decided to go with the much better Mouretsu Pirates, or Bodacious Space Pirates. I watched this episode twice. First time by myself, and then again today with my girlfriend, introducing her to the show. Mouretsu Pirates is a space adventure/opera by animation company Satelight.
