Draggle on Eromanga-sensei

Friday, June 30th, 2017


But the main thing is, this felt quite fresh and entertaining. Even if the show uses the traditional anime harem tropes as guidance, it doesn’t feel bound by them and adds a unique twist in every case.

Kobayashi’s Maid Dragon

Monday, June 26th, 2017

Finally done with Kobayashi. They mostly removed everything too gross, such as magical penises, but eh… Thematic concerns are abundant. The series pretty cute if you can get over that, althugh a bit too straightforward (the final visit was much too predictable). Production values are oustanding.

I made a note that Elma was possibly the best, but now that a week has passed, I cannot even remember who she was.

Mastodon killed animeblogging

Also! You know who plays Nygglatho in SukaSuka? Grandma Kikuko Inoue. That woman is older than I am and still kicks ass. {Update: Evirus remarks: “Her daughter is in the show too.”}

P.S. permits a funny hack: although their “Anime” topic is not available through the front page anymore, one can continue posting to it through its secret URL with UUID.

Yama no Susume S3 is announced

Monday, June 5th, 2017

Via Blue Blue Wave:

Spotted news online that the official website for the “Yama no Susume” anime adaptation of the “ヤマノススメ” slice-of-life manga by Shiro, announced that not only will a new OVA titled “Yama no Susume: Omoide Present” be released during the fall of 2017, but that a third season of the anime is set to air in 2018!

Now I have a reason to survive.

Question about Muramasa in Eromanga-sensei

Monday, June 5th, 2017

Does anyone know, from original LN perhaps, why Muramasa’s right hand is bandaged? She is manifestly left-handed.

UPDATE: J. thinks her bandages are related to her calligraphy practice, which I suspected too, but I don’t see exactly how it works.

UPDATE: The reason is spelled out in manga ch.34 and it’s too dumb for me to reveal here. Suffice it to say, it’s nothing sensible like calligraphy. The anime wisely omits that reveal, although it occurs within the time frame covered by the adaptation. {The manga compensates in the next scene by a more natural handling of the Hana’s fan letter than anime managed.}
