NetoJuu begins

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

The Autumn 2017 season delivers us another anime romcom, and it’s even better than Gamers. It’s about adults, and the lead is “unreasonably cute”. I may not have seen anything like this since Kayoko, girlfriend of Sunred. Noto voices her very nicely, and I didn’t even realize it was Noto at first.

Anyone noticed that they live in a terribly cold world, while the game is set up in magical summer?

I’ve got the tip about NetoJuu no Susume from Peter S., of all people. For some reason, Evirus’ post didn’t grab me, although he provides way more material. And “at least she cleans up nicely” is just the cynical and acerbic style we come to expect and love from him. And indeed, I really like how Moriko can keep her humanity together after a dive into NEETing. Also, the lint roller slays me.

Ogiue Maniax 10th Anniversary

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

Congratulations! Over the years, we linked to Ogiue Maniax many times, and I just received a little scare trying to find the latest article. It was in the backups, but not on the site! Apparently, a draft was saved about Nico-Nico-niiiii, but the polemic with SDS never happened. We’d just to have to leave the readers with the old goodies.

Speaking of anniversaries, Ani-nouto started just a few months ahead of Ogiue Maniax and thus passed its 10th anniversary recenty too. If not for SDS, we’d not have even known.

UPDATE: Aziz joins in but cannot help pointing out that he was there first, by a couple of months. I’m okay with that, nobody can beat Evirus anyway.

Gamers ends

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Upside: Tendou’s smile that you want to protect. Downside: Too little of her, too much of Desu-desu. No real ending, either. But then some things got resolved, so it could be worse. Also, that ED track was great.

For whatever reason, I watched Gamers raw, and although the Japanese itself in it was easy enough, they were talking too much. I had to go to subs for a rewatch in places.

Liked: Yes
Rewatch: Possible
