Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance – 01

「剣と学院と火猫少女」 (Ken to Gakuin to Hineko Shoujo)
“The Sword, the School, and the Fire Cat-Girl”

Is it action? Is it ecchi? Is it harem? A little of all three. It has the potential to be one of the better action-fantasy harem series, and the first episode has neither confirmed nor destroyed said potential.

Yama no Susume: Second Season – 01

「テントに泊まろう!」 (Tento ni Tomarou!)
“Let’s Sleep Over in a Tent!”

Yama no Susume is back, and each episode has a 13-minute run-time instead of a lonely 3-minutes. It makes the transition smoothly.

「憑依合体!モモキュンソード!!」 (Hyouigattai! Momokyunsoudo!!)

「けーよんへようこそ!」 (Keeyonn he Youkoso!)
“Welcome to the Defense Four!”

I’m still a little confused about how to feel about RAIL WARS. I was stoked about its premise that involved trains and the men and women who operate them, but after getting through the first episode I can confidently say that I was a bit more confused than before I started.

Love Live! S2 – μ’s Music End

Shipping Nico x Maki so hard!

Love Live! S2 ended like it began – singing, dancing, smiling, and hamming it up like nobody’s business. But I finished the series smiling, so I think it did its job.
