    Okay, I'm sold by Amanchu's OP now, and it releases on July 27th, hurray.

    FYI: It's sung by Maaya Sakatomo.

    This is still one of my fave OP/ED songs done by her (Yoko Kanno composition helps too):


    Watching the wolf just run in the moonlight always made me enjoy this more, too.

    Joker Game - (Ep: 1 - 7) - (6/10)

    - I wish this hadn't been episodic. I think the premise of the show and the build up of the first two episodes lent itself far better to a continuous plot line. Episodic just feels like the lazy way out and in the context of what this show seemed to be setting up in the first two episodes, far less interesting. I imagine I'll finish this over the next few days.

    Hundred - (Ep: 1) - (4/10)

    - The name is a commemoration. A commemoration of the exact same 99 anime that came before it. Dropped.

    Bakuon - (Ep: 1) - (4/10)

    - Moe shit. Dropped.

    End Ride - (Ep: 1) - (4/10)

    - More generic garbage meant to appeal to chuuni Japanese eighth graders who think they're the dark flame master.

    Gyakuten Saiban - (Ep: 1) - (4/10)

    - A show like this actually could have been interesting. The premise certainly has potential. Though I guess you could say that about most things. Regardless, other issues aside, the trial was ridiculously stupid and over the top. Shit. Dropped.

    Kuma Miko - (Ep: 1) - (4/10)

    - Moe shit. Dropped.

    KUROMUKURO - (Ep: 1) - (4/10)

    - This show fooled me with the opening scene. Cool robots, interesting setting, nice animation. Then Kuromukuro happened. Dropped.

    Netoge no Yome - (Ep: 1) - (4/10)

    - Even my soft spot for video game anime couldn't save this garbage. Dropped.

    Sakamoto desu ga? - (Ep: 1) - (4/10)

    - Just what I like. Horrible anime comedy. Shit. Dropped.

    Sousei no Onmyouji - (Ep: 1) - (3/10)

    - Lump this one in with End Ride. Shit. Dropped.


    Shounen Maid - (Ep: 1 - 2) - (5/10)

    - Not horrible, but not worth watching, either. Dropped.

    Mayoiga - (Ep: 1 - 2) - (5/10)

    - First episode had me really intrigued. The setting was pretty interesting, as was the premise to an extent. Obviously something bad is going to happen and there's somewhat of a creepy vibe to the show. While I don't put much stock in MAL's ratings, Mayoiga's is pretty damn low, so I'm assuming it becomes a total shit show as it goes on. I'll probably watch another episode or two and then more than likely drop it.

    The twist is nothing bad happens.

    What a coincidence that both in ISSTH and ATG over the past few translated chapters the same event unfolded, protagonist's reunion with long-lost birth parents. That's the kind of coordination no one would be able to plan ahead for. ;D

    Alderamin on the Sky 02 - The first episode didn't draw me in too much but this was pretty good. I still have a few issues with the show, though it seems like it has a lot of potential. I just hope it's more than one cour.

    One thing I particularly liked was how nice the enemy soldiers were. Often in anime (or fiction in general) the enemy side is just full-blown villain, but the soldiers at the start were actual humans that the protagonists were forced to kill.

    Thunderbolt Fantasy 2 - "Sharp-Eyed Impaler" is clearly a badass.

    Calling her brother a "sword saint" instantly made me think of CD, too, lol

    Really liking it so far, too. Two episodes in and the characters are already established and interesting, not a bunch of walking tropes but actual characters.

    Shūmatsu no Izetta Original Anime Reveals New Visual, Story, Characters

    The website's introduction to the story reads:

    If I am promised to the princess, then I will fight for her sake.
    In 1939 C.E., the imperialist nation of Germania invaded a neighboring country. All at once, that war spread throughout Europe, and the era was dragged into a spiral of a great war.

    Then, in 1940, Germania's attack turned towards the Principality of Elystadt, a small Alps country abundant with beautiful water and greenery.

    Fictional map of Europe:



    Izetta, the descendant of a family of witches. She can cast a spell on anything she touches and manipulate it at will. Since she was young, she and her grandmother lived their lives on the road, travelling between European countries in order to hide the power.


    Fine, the sole daughter and heir to Rudolf III, ruler of the Principality of Elystadt. From a young age she has been adored for her wisdom and kind heart by not only her retainers, but by all the citizens. Since her father is sick, she prepares for Germania's invasion in his stead.
