Jormungand: Perfect Order – 04

「キャスパーとヨナ」 (Kyasupa to Yona)
“Kasper and Jonah”

This episode had more flashbacks than expected, but serves as a solid set-up for the next arc. And after going through perhaps the worst East Coast storm ever, I’m lucky to even have electricity to watch anything at all!

Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo – 04

「色を変える世界」 (Shoku wo Kae ru Sekai)
“A World Changing Color”

Stories are at their best when they touch upon the cornerstones of human life, on emotions and trials and tribulations its audience has faced and perhaps not yet overcome. That’s what we saw here, both in the effect of Shiina’s manga on herself and Sorata, and in the story’s message to us all.

Girls und Panzer – 04

「隊長、がんばります!」 (Taichou, Ganbarimasu!)
“I’ll do my best as commander!”

For the fourth week in a row Girls und Panzer delivers, retaining its spot as one of the best offerings of the season.

Magi – 04

「草原の民」 (Sougen no Min)

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun – 05

「吉田くんちの事情」 (Yoshida Kunchi no Jijou)
“Yoshida Family Matters”

Today’s episode wasn’t all sweet as Yuuzan would like, but rather shook the foundations of Mitty and Haru’s relationship. Also, enter Hanazawa Kana.

Little Busters! – 04

「幸せのひだまりを作るのです」 (Shiawase no Hidamari o Tsukuru no desu)
“I’ll Make a Happy Sunny Spot”

When I said Maeda Jun series always have at least one moemoe character “or two” – I didn’t think I’d be proven right quite so quickly.

Shin Sekai Yori – 05

「逃亡の熱帯夜」 (Tobo no Nettaiya)
“A Sweltering Night on the Run”

Following last episode’s game-changer, Shin Sekai Yori is upping the ante considerably on all fronts. The characters are seeing quite a bit of action – in more ways than one – and the scale of the story is getting larger than ever. And the best part? We’ve barely scraped the surface of this show.

Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse – 17

「仄暗き追憶」 (Soku Kuraki Tsuioku)
“Dark Recollection”

The mock battles continue, but there’s an even tastier main course served up this episode. Let’s just say, the main title might be Total Eclipse, but “Total Jealousy” wouldn’t have been too far off the mark either.

Uchuu Kyoudai – 30

K – 04

「Kock-on Effect」

Not to add oil to the burning fire, but criticism has to be given where it’s due.

PSYCHO-PASS – 03

「成しうる者」 (Nashi Uru Mono)
“Those Capable”

Sibyl’s system is nowhere near perfect – there remain enough chinks in the armor for the darker side of man to slip through, as it unfortunately always seems to do.

Sukitte Ii na yo. – 04

「傷が、ある」 (Kizu ga, aru)
“They Have Scars”

I’m being completely earnest when I say that I love this show.

Sword Art Online – 17

「囚われの女王」 (Toraware no Joou)
“Captive Queen”

For the longest time, Sword Art Online has been lacking something that’s almost crucial in the top tier of anime.
