“Ah, My Good-For-Nothing Darling”

This week, Ayumu meets a busty, red-headed doujinshi artist by the name of Naegleria Nebiros (Koshimizu Ami), and Sarasvati turns on the deredere. Fantastic.

Sakamichi no Apollon – 08

「ムード・インディゴ ジーズ・フーリッシュ・シングス」 (Mūdo indigo jīzu fūrisshu shingusu)
“Mood Indigo These Foolish Things”

And lo, with the simple question “Would you like a persimmon?” was the fujoshi movement born in Kyushu, 1967…

Acchi Kocchi – 08

「宿題の夏⇔祭りの夏」 (Syukudai no Natsu to Matsuri no Natsu)
“Summer Homework ⇔ Summer Festival”

Unless you haven’t noticed, the amount of humor and fuwafuwa moments seem to be inversely related. Whenever an episode doesn’t have some sort of over the top joke that tries to break the rules of physics in some way, there tend to be a lot more cute and sometimes heartbreaking moments.

Another – 00 (OVA)

「アナザー OAD」
“Episode 00″

If the OVA of Another conjures up anything in my mind’s eye, it’s the realization of just how tragically the final two episodes of the TV series missed the mark.

Jormungand – 08

「モンド・グロッソ」 (Mondo Gurosso)
“Mondo Grosso”

Yes, Jormungand is an action adventure. But like someone mentioned before, there’s also a lot going for it being classified as as a slice of life too—a slice of the arms-dealing life that is. Not that it’s a bad thing.

Gundam Unicorn – 05

「黒いユニコーン 」 (Kuroi Yunikoon)
“Black Unicorn”

I haven’t kept up with a lot of anime since my indefinite hiatus from blogging, but I fully intended to cover this fifth episode of Gundam Unicorn — especially considering the cliffhanger the OVA series left off on six months ago.

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia – 08

Kuroko no Basuke – 08

「改めて思いました」 (Aratamete Omoimashita)
