Angel Beats! – 05

「Favorite Flavor」

God damn, the SSS is nothing more than a bunch of school bullies with the way Yuri runs her so-called operations. This is no longer a battle against Tenshi (real name Tachibana Kanade) anymore, as it’s downright mean how they pick on her for no good reason.

Durarara!! – 16

「相思相愛」 (Soushi Souai)
“Mutual Love”

Despite how much the story’s been leading us towards an ultimate Ikebukuro showdown involving Dollars, the Yellow Scarves, and the Slashers with Mikado, Masaomi, and Anri leading each of them, I was really hoping it wouldn’t come to that in Anri’s case.

Sarai-ya Goyou – 03

「徐々に巻き込んで」 (Jojo ni Makikonde)
“Gradually Get Him Involved”

As Masa slowly gets dragged into the ways of the House of Five Leaves, a lot of Yaichi’s backstory is starting to flesh out and looking like it’ll explain how he got into this kidnapping “business” in the first place.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama! – 05

「初めてのお留守番」 (Hajimete no Orusuban)
“First Time Staying Behind”

Misaki was sooo cute this week with Usui getting under her skin to the extreme by playing make-believe stalker. Except in his case, aside from actually sneaking up behind her grabbing her, he more or less is a stalker already.

B Gata H Kei – 05

「汗と涙のヴァレンタイン!山田より愛?を込めて」 (Ase to Namida no Varentain! Yamada yori Ai? wo Komete)
“A Valentine of Sweat and Tears! Love(?) From Yamada is Put Into It”

With the hilarious way Valentine’s Day and going nopan is portrayed in this series, I sometimes find myself second guessing if B Gata H Kei is really written by a woman — a married one with two kids at that.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 04

「Dissolve」

Given how people tend to say anime is always a rehash of the same stuff over and over again, I’m almost tempted to stop blogging all my other shows and only cover RAINBOW so that it gets the attention it deserves.

Mayoi Neko Overrun! – 04

「迷い猫、脱いだ」 (Mayoi Neko, Nuida)
“Stray Cat, Undressed”

I can’t say I remember the last time I’ve seen an episode where every single character, guys and girls alike, were naked 90% of the time, but AIC sure knows how to bring the fan-service with this gag-filled one.

K-ON!! – 04

「修学旅行」 (Shuugaku Ryokou)
“Field Trip”

Much like I’ve always suspected, the quiet ones are usually the wildest in bed. This of course is in reference to Mugi, who doesn’t hesitate when she’s alone in a room with three other girls during an overnight school trip to Kyoto.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – Tales of a Master

「師匠(せんせい)物語」 (Shishou (Sensei) Monogatari)
“Tales of a Master”

As mentioned last week, a short OVA focusing on Izumi’s “Tales of a Master” chapter of the manga was released with the 9th DVD/BD volume.

Senkou no Night Raid – 04

「カメラと包子と野良猫と」 (Kamera to Paozu to Naraneko to)
“A Camera, Baozi, and a Stray Cat”

I wasn’t expecting anything on the more lighthearted side in this series, but watching Aoi and Kazura’s contrasting personalities try to work together proved to be just that.

One Piece – 448

「マゼランを止めろ!イワさん奥義炸裂」 (Mazeran o Tomero! Iwa-san Ōgi Sakuretsu)
“Stop Magellan! Ivan-san Unleashes His Secret Attack”

The clock’s ticking with only four hours left until Ace’s execution.

Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru – 03

「ワルプルギスの夜」 (Warupurugisu no Yoru)
“Walpurgis Night”

As this was primarily a setup episode for Yuki’s transition into the world of the Giou clan and their battle with the Duras, one of my personal highlights was the Tooko scene with Inoue Marina bringing all the cuteness when Yuki addressed her distantly with honorifics.

Arakawa Under the Bridge – 04

「4 BRIDGE」

Kamiya Hiroshi is reunited with Saitou Chiwa in another SHAFT production since Bakemonogatari, but he’s not getting any loving this time as the little orphan girl from Great Britain absolutely destroys Riku in a one-on-one “play fight” and makes him her new underling.

GIANT KILLING – 04

「#04」

The match between East Tokyo United and Tokyo Victory is on and it’s a good one as we get a taste of Tatsumi’s giant killing abilities.
