A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives episode 5 – ha

For once, this series managed to balance between answering questions and adding questions.

Apparently Kurenai Gekkou is more… good… than expected. He must be really angry to his brother. Or something. Too bad the do thing didn’t actually happen. And the fact that it’s a spell felt a bit weird. It’d feel better if it’s another creation like Bahlskra but she(?) isn’t. Anyway, Taito is as useless as usual this episode.

Extra: lol @ Fukuyama Jun’s ironical laughter.

 

The Mystic Archives of Dantalian episode 1-2 – so much for books

The book-reading part is probably the most annoying part because it requires more concentration to follow. Mainly because I rarely read those kind of books. Or any book, really. The premise is quite weird – about historical, powerful books. And a mysterious tsundere girl to accompany the main character. And reading the books gives the reader awesome power or whatever while epicly confusing the watcher (or just me?).

Animation etc as expected from Gainax. The story being written by writer of Asura Cryin’ assures some quality in the story albeit probably a bit confusing. Much better than that certain Dark Rabbit, I’d say. The whole Latin thingy is quite pretentious. Japanese sure love their Latin. Or French. Or German.

 

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan: Demon Capital episode 1-4 – o yay

According to Wikipedia (warning: spoiler everywhere), the first arc of this season is Past Arc. The one that tells the beginning of Rikuo’s grandfather – Nurarihyon. Sure seems like there’re some kind of relation between Keikain and Nura. I’m avoiding spoilers so I don’t know what is this exactly. Anyway, seems like there is some kind of difference between some clan members between past and current time. Could it be because their powers have been limited to certain extent? The personality, especially Yuki-Onna which I noticed most difference. Or could her be the grandchild of first generation’s Yuki-Onna (whatever that means)?

 

A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives episode 3 – hmmm

So, instead of explaining things, they decided to add even more mysteries. Riiiiight. Well, I guess it’s just like the previous series – explanation comes really late in series. Though the one, basic question still hasn’t got answered: how the heck did he survive his seventh time death? Did fifteen minutes time passed by the end of that or something? Why did he showed to be apparently “jumped” to school time?

In other hand, Hinata survived is rather obvious though how he managed it is still a mystery. Probably just because he’s too awesome to die. Add the fact that he can send a minion who can stand Spell Error or whatever that is and all.

Basically, this show is quite wtf.

 

A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives episode 2 – whee

She shouldn’t have adjusted her appearance.

Another busy episode with the two couples who initially fights each other joining force to defeat common enemy. Listening to Fukuyama Jun voicing an evil character sure fits him nicely. Some questions answered, some new questions appeared. Great. Especially how Taito can get back alive after dying seven times. Hopefully we’ll get the answer in next episode.

LoLH writer sure doesn’t disappoint (yet?). ZEXCS also seem to be able to keep up the good animation. It’s still at second episode though so it could go anywhere.

Yuru Yuri episode 3 – o/

Loliyuri is sure fine~

The group discovered that Yui is living on her own and so Kyouko decided to visit her on holiday. Hilarity ensues.

This episode is focused on Kyouko and Yui (at least the latter half) as we discover that they have known each other since like forever (including Akari) and how Chinatsu wants to join the group, too. For Yui-senpai, presumably. Hinted at the beginning of the whole event, turns out Kyouko cared about Yui after all and they proceeded to the bed at night in the end.  IYKWIM.

A normal Yuru Yuri episode which is a good thing.
