Space Dandy Episode 5: So we went from pure goofy last week to sweet this week. It was so unexpectedly sweet that it actually made me kind of uncomfortable, but I suppose that’s a good thing.
Nobunagun Episode 5: What the heck is this anime? Nothing like a little inexplicable random french-kissing.
Samurai Flamenco Episode 15: I can’t help but fall for weird stereotypes and Mister Justice is hilarious. This series is amazing and there’s something about the style that I never get tired of just looking at it.
Log Horizon Episode 18: Honestly I thought this series would start to get boring but it continues to up the ante. I had to laugh out loud at the reception of Lenessia’s speech; it was a reminder that the Adventurers are really still just MMORPGers at heart, looking for a quest from a beautiful princess.
Kuroko’s Basketball Episode 42: I love this show so much. For the first half I was so excited I thought I might actually puke and by the end of the episode I had tears in my eyes. …Why don’t we have this in English JUMP again?
Nagi no Asukara Episode 17: Oh, the drama! The more I watch, the more I realize this really isn’t my kind of show; the angst is almost overwhelming. But it’s enjoyable in its own way and I have to see it through and find out how it all ends. Something else that occurred to me this episode–it’s been a little too nice not having Manaka around. I think Sayu is my favorite character.
Yowapeda Episodes 15 & 16: I like to watch Yowamushi Pedal while on the exercise bike but due to recent events that never happened so I had an extra episode to watch. There is something (so far) pure and wonderful about this series and it makes me feel somewhat refreshed and hopeful after watching it. I’m really enjoying the character development.
Ace of the Diamond Episode 17: Gah, this show is so good! Though this episode made me feel like I should have been a much better catcher back in my sports days >_< Every time I watch, I can’t get over how great the characters are.
Silver Spoon Episode 4: Gotta love delusional princess-types with ringlets! Having been on (and then off) horses many times, this episode was a little hard to watch; I was too worried someone was going to get hurt. I keep cheering for Hachiken, though, to gain some confidence.
Witch Craft Works Episode 4: Unfortunately I felt this episode was a bit predictable and not all that exciting. But hey, unless you’re Space Dandy or something, not every episode is gonna be great. Whatever happened to those girls’ pet llama, anyway?
World Conquest Zvezda Plot Episode 4: Continuing a trend I’ve been seeing this season (ignore what I just said about Witch Craft Works) of Episode 4 being THE episode where a lot of series are opening up, this Episode 4 gives us some character history and fleshes things out a bit. I was glad to see Natasha become a more interesting character, though I don’t think it was explained why she doesn’t wear more clothes…
Hozuki no Reitetsu Episode 4: I really love this anime. There’s something so relaxing and satisfying about it. Plus I laugh out loud at least once per episode. To me, it just has the feeling of something very well-constructed.
Magical Warfare Episode 4: Okay, so, I didn’t really pay attention to episodes 1-3 and so now I don’t have a firm idea of what is going on. But that said, I still enjoyed episode four and think the show has potential. I don’t expect anything deep or mind-blowing so I just think it’ll be fun to watch. Plus I love Glasses Guy’s voice…perhaps he’s just the adult version of Imayoshi from Kuroko’s Basketball?
Hamatora Episode 4: I’m really starting to love this show! By keeping my expectations relatively low, I get happily surprised every episode. And I love the bad guy; he is soooo bad and that makes him so good! He is just such a great “bad guy”…right now, he is what makes the show truly intriguing.
Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha Episode 3: This episode really kicked it up a notch for me…maybe because I’m fascinated by the brother? (Well, both brothers now, but for different reasons.) Inari is actually the least-interesting character as far as I’m concerned but I’m starting to think there’s a lot to love about this anime–such as a goddess who plays otome games.
