「学園の王子様(女子)の悩み」 (Gakuen no Ouji-sama (Joshi) no Nayami)

Haikyuu!! – 21

「先輩の実力」 (Senpai no Jitsuryoku)
“A Senior’s True Strength”

It’s Sugawara’s time to shine! We see the former starting setter play in a match for the first time and bestow his experience on the first-years, which proved to not only be a highlight for his character, but a pivotal turning point for Kageyama–the genius who picks up techniques from others at an inhuman rate.

ALDNOAH.ZERO – 08

「鳥を見た日 -Then and Now-」 (Tori o Mi Ta Hi -Then and Now-)
“Day of Bird’s Sighting -Then and Now-”

Remember – you can’t misspell “slain” with an extra “e” without “Slaine”.

Mushishi Zoku Shou: Tokubetsu-hen – Toge no Michi

「とげ の道 」 (Toge no Michi)
“Road of Thorns”

I knew “Road of Thorns” was going to pack quite the emotional punch, but the anime adaptation certainly didn’t disappoint.

Tokyo ESP – 07

「雨の中の少女達」 (Ame no Naka no Shoujo-tachi)
“Girls in the Rain”

A more focused episode makes for a better episode as Ayumu comes into the fold…and the whole anti-esper sentiment finally hits emotionally.

LOVE STAGE!! – 07

「コレッテモシカシテ」 (Korette Moshikashite)

Persona 4 The Golden ANIMATION – 07

「It’s cliché, but so what?」

Woah, fights! Action! Introspection! It’s like we’re watching a Persona anime or something.

Zankyou no Terror – 07

「DEUCE」

If we ever look back and try to look for a point where the views on this show diverged, I’d say this would be it.

Glasslip – 08

「雪」 (Yuki)
“Snow”

After last week’s train wreck, I thought this week’s episode did a little better. While I’m still a little confused about what direction the show is trying to go in, P.A. Works did a great job at illustrating a world that’s literally falling apart at the seams.

Shirogane no Ishi Argevollen – 08

「再戦」 (Saisen)
“Rematch”

It looks like I jumped the gun a bit in my predictions last week, because while some of them turned out to be true, one of them I clearly read too much into.

Hanamonogatari

「するがデビル 其ノ壹 – 伍」 (Suruga Debiru Sono Ichi – Go)
“Suruga Devil Parts One – Five”

Kanbaru Suruga, starring in her very own sports anime, learns about playing solo in more ways than one.

*Nothing really explicit here, but this post features copious amounts of Kanbaru. Your designated workplace may not necessarily approve of her wardrobe. Or lack thereof.*

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya Zwei! – 07

「激突!クッキン・シスターズ」 (Gekitotsu Kukkin Shisutaazu)
“Clash! Cooking Sisters!”

I could watch an entire series of just Illya, her friends, her family, and the hinjiks they get into.
