You know, this show is really similar to Idolmaster… the earth gets ravaged by some uncontrollable force, men are inexplicably incapacitated to fight, and teenage girls have to shoulder the burden. I’ll leave the details to your viewing pleasure – suffice to say, we’re getting a lot of teen girls wearing plug suits flying these mecha type things that show off their flat chests to the fullest extent.
Thursdays are now a sweet bouquet of paranormal action, mecha action, and homicidal women, but I’ll skip Higurashi as it’s a regular sequel.
Ah, summer. Beach, mizugi, boobs – the “natsu triumvirate.” Umisho is about a guy who can’t swim, and yet helps out with the swim club. Why? Because every anime chick has a rockin’ body. Can’t fault the guy for being a loser – not his fault he’s the male lead, but mad props for choosing a good place to live it out.
This concludes the coverage of the Tuesday shows with some school romance and zombie action. Skipping School Days since Omni already blogged it.
“Hey, did you get enough sleep? You look really out of it.”
“Doing what, ecchi stuff? Hehe.”
“I never heard you found someone…”
“No, it was by myself.”
“Staying up all night doing that w-with y-yourself?”
“If you’re so interested, want to help me next time?”
Tuesdays are busy busy, with six new shows airing in a single day. Here are the first three: harem comedy, otaku comedy, and sports.
Summer’s here! And it brings gifts: Nanatsuiro Drops (ななついろ★ドロップス) is the very first show of the season, a colourful magic girl anime with 12 episodes, airing on a whole bunch of channels Monday nights (Chiba TV is first at 25:40 JST).
Nonfictional anime isn’t very common, but perhaps Tetsuko no Tabi (鉄子の旅) explains the rarity. It shows the adventures of real-life train geek Yokomi Hirohiko in a 13-episode series currently running on Family Theatre, Sundays at 10:00 JST.
I hope you like cars, because in the new show Wangan Midnight (湾岸Midnight), more than half the footage is made up of slick computer generated car models racing around with noisy roars. Ring any bells?
