What I Watched Today 1-26-2014

Nobunaga the Fool Episode 4: Just keeps getting better and better. Sentai Filmworks has licensed Nobunaga the Fool and I plan on giving them my money for the home release, so I hope I didn’t just jinx it and the series continues on its current course of awesome!

Witch Craft Works Episodes 1-3: Very fun series so far. I didn’t know anything about the series when I went into it, but I’m glad I finally got around to watching the first few episodes.

Noragami Episode 4: The series is opening up! I’d say the best episode so far; we get introduced to some new characters and hints at Yato’s mysterious past. Really looking forward to see where it all goes from here.

Inari Kon Kon Episode 2: I wasn’t sure if I’d keep up with this show after the first episode but I’m glad I decided to watch this week. The protagonist is a little too cute for me but I’m intrigued by the other characters (I mean, what is the deal with the moody brother? More, please!) and I’m a sucker for anything Inari Okami-related.

Nobunagun Episode 4: The pattern here seems to be the first half of the episode is a lot of talking and my attention wanders then there’s some great action scene and I go back to thinking this anime is pretty good.

World Conquest Zvezda Plot Episode 3: Though I personally think the characters in this show could benefit from a bit more clothing, it consistently has some of the best one-liners per episode. This is further demonstrated by the fact that I already knew what most of those one-liners were because so many viewers tweeted lines and screenshots.

The Pilot’s Love Song Episode 3: This has been a really slow series for me and I was having a hard time paying attention but this episode had more action and backstory…which in turn made the characters (particularly the protagonist) more interesting. I might actually re-watch this episode for Karl’s/Kal el’s mother’s speech about forgiveness and I hope it resonated with other viewers as well.

Ace of the Diamond Episode 16: Holy crap, we’re already on episode 16?! I thought I started this anime like three weeks ago. Sixteen episodes of sports awesomeness and well-defined characters. I didn’t care for Furuya in the beginning (you’re not really supposed to) but he’s become just as adorable and intriguing as everyone else. Sports anime isn’t really about sports–it’s about the characters, and Ace of the Diamond is a beautiful example of what the genre has to offer.

  1. I really need to get around to watching The Pilot’s Love Song. Still, loving this season. Noragami episode four is definitely the best yet. I hope it gets even better next week what with the introduction of those three from the OP!
