There are some moments in movies, TV shows, movies and books where the only appropriate reaction is to sit stunned. Either amazed by the beauty, audacity, or sheer amazingness of what you've just witnessed/read. These are my top 5 moments in anime that have left me breathless and stuck with me long after the anime has ended.
Seirei Gensouki has Rio learning the hard way that things don't stand still while you are away. Which is kind of nice that Claire's life has continued despite his absence even if things aren't going so well. Be sure to read the full review.

Post sponsored by Crow's World of Anime. Mahouka Koukou no Yuutousei races through the final of the rookie Mirage Bat match as well as the whole sabotage incident in Monolith Code and Tatsuya's appearance in the final match up there. Meanwhile, the girls get to play detective in the background of an episode that felt like it could have been a great deal more satisfying if delivered differently. Be sure to read the full review.
As an anime reviewer I kind of expect that people will disagree with my opinion from time to time. I also get, that even when I love an anime to pieces, I'm still going to offer a critique of it (if I can) because otherwise I'm not reviewing so much as gushing over it.

This week, for the penultimate episode of My Next Life as a Villainess and the 'dramatic' rescue of Keith, Crow, Irina and I have converged on Irina's blog for our discussion (and a few mini-rants, I think we've saved up a number of issues with this season for this episode). Anyway, be sure to check out the full post and leave us a comment over on Irina's blog.
