Mouretsu Pirates – 08

「姫と海賊」 (Hime to Kaizoku)
“Princesses and Pirates”

No “bodaciousness”, no mini skirts, and no pirates! One would think that I’d be disappointed at how misleading the title of Sasamoto Yuuichi’s novel is, but I’m really not as it continues to redefine my understanding of what it means to be a “space pirate”.

Shakugan no Shana III (Final) – 20

「世界の卵」 (Sekai no Tamago)
“World Egg”

I’ll gladly admit that I enjoy Shana a lot more when there’s a lot of flashy action to keep my mind occupied. And instead of getting bombarded with explanations, the talking was kept to a minimum this week.

「データ転送」 (Dēta Tensō)
“Data transfer”

Senki Zesshou Symphogear – 08

「陽だまりに翳りなく」 (Hidamari ni Kagerinaku)
“There’s No Shadow Beneath the Sun”

Well, it doesn’t look like Kurisu is quite ready to jump ship onto the good guys’ side, but given that Miku didn’t hesitate to help her and Genjuurou even jumped in to lend a hand, it should only be a matter of time before two Symphogear heroines becomes three.

Black Rock Shooter – 04

「いつか夢見た世界が閉じる」 (Itsuka Yume Mita Sekai ga Tojiru)
“One Day The Dream World Will Close Off”

“Unconventional” is probably the best way I can describe Black Rock Shooter, as Ordet and Sanzigen have taken a Japanese Internet phenomenon of sorts and adapted it into an anime that’s very unlike the more typical ones that we see these days..

Amagami SS+ plus – 08

「棚町薫 後編 ミチヅレ」 (Tanamachi Kaoru Kouhen – Michizure)
“Tanamachi Kaoru, Second Chapter – Companion”

Regardless of whatever arguments Junichi may have with Kaoru, it seems like he always has his mind in the “right place” to ensure that their relationship can overcome anything.

Nisemonogatari – 08

「つきひフェニックス 其ノ壹」 (Tsukihi Fenikkusu Sono Ichi)

I will never look at a toothbrush the same way again.
