Log Horizon Season 2 Episode 2Show
Alright, I'm sold. I don't care about Shiroe/Akatsuki anymore; Naotsugu/Marielle is my Log Horizon OTP.

Also, someone is walking right into a trap.

Gugure! Kokkuri-san is the best anime ever. If you liked Nozaki-kun, Jintai, Barakamon, WataMote, Nichijou, or any anime, please watch it.

I'm really pleased that the first three shows I tried out this season all look really good. C:
(The others are Akatsuki no Yona - DAT CLIFFHANGER - and Parasyte.)

Amaburi Ep. 1 (late)Show
Kyoani finally gives correct fanservice instead of fu-service.
Even without watching FMP, I know Bonta-kun from SRW series, cue "Fumoffu!" on seeing one of the fairies.

Also, doujinshis come early in C86, *before* anime airing.

Grisaia no Kajitsu Episode 2Show
Sachi...Sachi, Sachi, Sachi. So you were a sadist all along.

Yes, I choose to comment on that part out of everything presented in this episode.
Sora no Method Episode 2Show
Moe with a plot. And a male character, thus possible romance. This may potentially be my favorite moeblob anime.

Grisaia no Kajitsu Episode 002Show
Story Adaptation: 8/10
people say they play all the route in each episode, but for me nothing's wrong
people say it fell far from the VN's greatness, but for me nothing's wrong
maybe I should play the game...

Animation: 9/10
nothing compared to FSN, but it certainly does not waste any budget in this department
(most people say it's bad, but that is because the level of animation used here requires a good eye, a lot of patience (since at first it looks like poor 3DStudio work, and neutral perception to enjoy it...)

Voicing & OST: 8.5/10
That song that played at Sakaki x Kazami scene is good <3
is it from the VN? or original the anime?
OP and ED songs are quite good, too...
Giving his love for life, and died dreaming about her in the end. A real happy man, right? ~

As someone who's played the VN, I'm glad theyre taking theyre time. They're showing all the important scenes while skipping a lot of the irrelevant ones

Also dat Prologue ending.

Gundam Reconguista in G ep. 03Show
Well, at least one question has been answered:
- Why are those space pirates attacking the Capital Tower?
Because Capital Tower has an effective monopoly on energy supplies. And those energy supplies are in the form of Photon Batteries that are exclusively manufactured at the Capital Tower. So if a nation on Earth (or space) decides to go belligerent (or does some otherwise minor infraction that doesn't please the Capital Tower government), the Capital Tower can just cut off the energy supply.

But more questions are added in this episode:
- Why did Bellri (plus Noredo, who was just dragged along) decide to go with Aida and Raraiya? (And no, there must be some other reason besides Bellri being infatuated with Aida.)
- Why did the Capital Guard's research division let Aida go with the G-Self and let her return to her fellow space pirates? Did they install a tracking device that allows them to monitor the space pirates' moves or something?

I can't help but wonder if the series will make much more sense with a marathon rewatch. I only hope that Reconguista in G doesn't follow in Gundam AGE's (or worse, Valvrave The Liberator's) footsteps, but since this is Sunrise we're talking about...
Amagi Brilliant Park ep. 02Show
Well, that was fast... (Unlike this post, anyway.)

After being told of what awaits Amagi Brilliant Park should guest arrivals continue to plummet (and after seeing Latifa sadly address her fellow Maple Land denizens), Seiya reluctantly becomes the manager of Amagi Brilliant Park. But first things first: New management, new rules--it's time to shape up or shut up.
Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works ep. 01Show
Another 47-minute episode? And the ending song is sung by Kalafina? Wow, ufotable is really spoiling the Fate/stay night/Type-Moon fans. (Not that it's a bad thing...)

But basically, this is episode 00 from Shirou's POV.
Grisaia no Kajitsu ep. 02Show
Did they give the girls permanent (reddish) eyeshadow or something?

Also, Yuuji talks about getting rid of "garbage" and "cleaning up"...but I'm pretty sure he's not talking about sanitation since his mysterious past is anything but normal. (As his reflexes and allusions to being close to life-or-death situations indicate.) So Yuuji is either:
- a young assassin/hired killer; or:
- a young agent working for some secret/black ops service; or:
- he's involved with (pardon the Hayate no Gotoku reference) "really nice people."
Girlfriend (Kari) ep. 01 (First impressions)Show
Based on the hit dating sim for smartphones (in Japan), Girlfriend (Kari) the anime is mostly "cute girls doing cute things" fare. Not sure if there will be les yay moments, though.

I'll probably just watch this for Chloe Lemaire... Basically, she's like Kin-iro Mosaic's Karen Kujou, but French. ("That's racist." *ding*)

Thankfully, Chloe appears quite early--six minutes into the episode. If she hadn't, the sheer number of other cute, named girls in this show would've been more overwhelming than a classic Zerg rush. It's also a good thing Chloe's one of the main girls (as featured in their promotional poster).

It's no Amagami SS, but I still prefer Girlfriend (Kari) as this season's "guilty pleasure" anime over that twintails show.
"Rip and Tear. Rip and tear until it's done."

Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo Episode 2Show
Sigh, pudding girl is dead. I probably will never like Ange now, no matter how she develops as a character.
Madan no Ou to Vanadis Episode 2Show
Best girl of the season has been decided: Titta

Oh. This is based on another harem light novel. Is that seriously the only thing that sells?

Daito Ep. 1Show
Tsugumi is so cute, despite of this anime not in common August-style artwork.
World Trigger Ep. 1-2Show
So our guys are always fighting with soldier bots from the other world.
And there are no important girls yet.
Inou Battle Ep. 1Show
The only guy is useless, despite of being surrounded by four OP girls.
I had thought HanaKana will screw the show. Luckily, there is not any.
Kokkuri-san Ep. 1Show
Seems to be delighted funny show. Tracking.

Girlfriend (Kari) Episode 001Show
Early Impression
Story: 6/10
reminds me of first episode of K-On! but not as "making me wonder" as K-On!
it could be so for the moment I'm staying

Animation: 7/10
Could have been an 8 if the background has more animation (but then again this is not a KyoAni's level of anime)
but there is potential: the beginning part of the gymnastic scene (where Kokomi starts throwing the club) is beautiful
but then they cut it by changing the main focus of the next scene to those in the vicinity who watched her (and only her body up-close appear) which is a bad call.
The other scene is nothing special, unfortunately.

Voicing & OST: 8/10
Could have been 9 if the unnecessary too much "r" in "Merci" is not made (the "tres bien" got me excited, because not every time I heard Japanese Seiyuu speaks other language perfectly)
Still expecting more from Ritsu Kokomi's Seiyuu, though...
OST is nice, not special but good (and most importantly: well-timed)
OP & ED aren't bad.

Resist: short animes.
Yona Ep. 1Show
Reverse harem? No thanks. There are better shows within my limited time.
Trinity Seven Ep. 1Show
Girls are enough.
Hope it can get better than Mahosen.
Shirobako Ep. 1Show
Wow, an anime about anime production.
They are drifting for a car park.
And it's not an easy job being merged parts.
Chaika S2 Ep. 1Show
Chaika T. is at her next challenge - her casting time is too long against next body holder.
Vivi is now half-Chaika and sad.
Psycho-Pass 2 Ep. 1Show
Akane is back as a skilled irregular, trying to save sentenced people.
Twin tail Ep. 1Show
When protecting twin tail from evil is serious business, you know the sanity line of the story.
GBF-T Ep. 1Show
Let's guess who hides that Dom with a gundam inside.
Kimiuso Ep. 1/22Show
It's a noitaminA show.
We quickly have an hourglass relationship. Check.

Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de Episode 2Show
I am not familiar with any of Trigger's works, but I was under the impression that their modus operandi is "animation for the sake of animation."

Inou-Battle is far from being such. However, I am not disappointed. I'm loving the character interactions.
Trinity Seven Episode 2Show
They need to turn this into a visual novel so I can play through Levi route.
