「はじめての☆おつかい & 3人でお茶を」 (Hajimete no Otsukai & Sannin de Ocha Wo)
“First Errand & Tea for Three”
What good is an episode that doesn’t start another capture? Well, it means that we get a nice dose of Elsie goodness of course!

“Flock of Plovers”
There were many things that stirred Kiiragi’s relatively cold heart, and the superbly complex process of friend making was one of them. An ostensibly easy job to others, but a journey for the socially inferior.

「薔薇色の人生は新雪に埋もれる」 (Barairo no Jinsei wa Shinsetsu ni Uzumoreru)
“The Rose Colored Life is Buried Under Fresh Snow”
I have to say, this episode was pretty difficult to watch. If not just hearing the blood-curdling screams of Cordelia, but the implications of her situation was not exactly what I had in mind.

「喜翆荘の一番長い日」 (Kissuiso no Ichiban Nagai Hi)
“Kissuiso’s Longest Day”
If only all series could recap as well as Iroha does. Instead of wasting precious minutes of my new episode, they managed to bring back that tense feeling I was left with at the end of last week’s episode. I’ll admit that watching Ohana stumble around trying to find Tohru wasn’t really doing it for me, but the drama building inside of Ko and the end of Kissuiso’s longest day made things a ton more interesting.

Shiro finally shows a very scary side, and even her voice and demeanor has completely changed. Just like pretty much every other person in Deadman Wonderland, first impressions are very misleading.

「誰かさんの思い出になる日」 (Dareka-san no Omoide ni Naru Hi)
“A Day Someone Will Remember”
I wouldn’t mind a free bag of rice for a starving student.

「日常９」 (Nichijou 9)
“My Ordinary Life 9″
The pure randomness of this show never fails to brighten my day. Boy do I wish High School was this awesome over here in the states. Announcing marriage plans, thrusting teachers into the air, and even getting free bags of rice — WHO WOULDN’T WANT A FREE BAG OF RICE?

「Composition （組成）」 (Sosei)
This is what I would consider as more of a character reflection episode since nothing really “happened”. The first half was basically Mikuni narrating his past.

「新学期 – Abnormal Circumstance」 (Shin Gakki)
“New Semester – Abnormal Circumstance”
In what feels like an answer from the gods, everything’s been turned upside down and inside out — but in a fun and entertaining way. It felt really refreshing to get a closer look at some of the side characters who populate this show. Instead of constantly watching our group of four live their lives, I was overjoyed to watch Miho and Yutaka get nearly half the episode to themselves.

「Versuchung ～抜け駆け～」 (Nukegake)
“Temptation ~Steal a March On~”
The two-episode Blu-ray release of Kampfer’s direct continuation has been released, and with it comes the more relevant first episode (thirteenth overall) that was preempted on March 31st due to the earthquake crisis in Japan. This episode is more relevant in the sense that it addresses the fallout of the eleventh episode of the original series, when Kaede was revealed to be a Moderator who oversees the Kampfer battles used to settle a power struggle somewhere off in the universe.

「ほんとのお願い」 (Honto no Onegai)
“The Real Wish”
Rather than going directly to the date of her death, Jinta flips through the pages of the diary and lands on the first idea that seemed plausible as a wish. Flying a rocket to God. Ah, youth.
