Stella no Mahou – 11

「お困りですかお嬢さん」 (Okomari Desuka Ojousan)
“Having A Problem Young Lady?”

Man this week’s episode was everywhere. Luckily, even if it wasn’t appealing to some, it was totally working for me (at least until Teru-senpai appeared in the windowsill).

Stella no Mahou – 10

「精密機械」 (Seimitsu Kikai)
“Precision Machinery”

This is exactly what this show needed. A little bit of drama that stemmed from all the right places and hit all the right people. Or maybe it was just the fact that Arai Satomi randomly appeared and made everything 100x better? The world may never know.

Stella no Mahou – 08

「デバッグなめたらダメだよ?」 (Debaggu Nametara Damedayo?)
“Dont Underestimate Debuggers?”

I’m not sure if this was the best way to describe this week’s episode, but to me it felt really meme-y.

Stella no Mahou – 07

「はじめての思い出」 (Hajimete no Omoide)
“First Memory”

Well then, that wasn’t exactly what I was expecting but it was a fun watch nonetheless! Seriously though, that tease of a new character and you don’t show us anything after the first minute?

Stella no Mahou – 05

「カウントダウン」 (Kauntodaun)

Just like in real life, you can’t expect things to always go according to plan. Luckily, it looks like the SNS-bu and its newest member have just what it takes to get things done.

Stella no Mahou – 04

「スキルアップ」 (Sukiru Appu)
“Skill Up”

With a majority of this week’s episode focusing on raising Honda’s skill in drawing, I really appreciated the fact that the story didn’t slow down and in-fact decided to kick things up a little.
