The day will come when the courage of men fails, and when you look behind those men, you will find one thing: Chaikas. Soooo many Chaikas.

Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu – 08, 09

「氷点」 (Hyouten) &「善悪の彼岸」 (Zen’aku no Higan)
“Freezing Point” & “Beyond Good and Evil”

I don’t think anyone in their right mind would complain about getting two Kiseijuu episodes this week, especially considering how top-notch they both were.

Trinity Seven – 08

「魔道勉強(スタディ)と安息日(ホリデイ)」 (Madou Benkyou (Sutadi) to Ansokujitsu (Horidei))
“Study and Holiday”

It’s been an uneven path to here, but finally the magic is explained, the plot is progressing, all the characters are introduced, and it can all work side-by-side as they dial the ecchi-funny up to eleven. This is the show I always wanted Trinity Seven to be.

「絶望を斬る」 (Zetsubou wo Kiru)

Shirogane no Ishi Argevollen – 20

「もうひとつの意識」 (Mou Hitotsu no Ishiki)
“Another Mind”

Well if there’s one thing that Argevollen definitely has going for it, it would be its rather unpredictable nature. The developments may not be shocking, but the direction the series takes almost always is.

Amagi Brilliant Park – 08

「恋心が届かない!」 (Koigokoro ga Todokanai!)
“Your Love Isn’t Reaching!”

I should just stop trying to predict Amaburi‘s narrative direction. Crow has a distinctly unappetising flavour.
