Um... Right, so the tone is all over the place. The characters are walking jokes. The case is transparent from the beginning. Why don't I hate this?
The first half of this episode of Bookworm more or less confirmed that I wasn't really feeling it and then it had to go and make Main do something nice in the second half. While I still have my doubts, Ascendance of a Bookworm is going to stay on my watch list for now.
Alright, I think I'm sold on Stars Align. Not a lot is happening with this episode focusing on Maki's first two training sessions with the team but there's enough personality to this anime that it is winning me over anyway.
Episode 2 isn't exactly mind blowing here but Assassins Pride is kind of finding its feet and building on its shaky start. Whether it can build momentum now or whether it will trip over its own feet remains to be seen.
In our quest to determine what the best horror anime needs we've meandered our way through starting the anime, the importance of a good cast and explored settings. This week it is all about the feels.
They are really pulling out all the stops to try and make us kind of want to like Momoharu in the future. It isn't working but I appreciate the effort Ahiru no Sora is putting into the attempt.
Is anyone else concerned about the size of the cages some of those demon beasts are being kept in while Genzo sorts out his pet shop? Of course, that's a side-note as this episode introduces a dragon girl into the mix.
The Ones Within or Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] is one of those anime that is better experienced than described. While it is certainly a flaw riddled viewing experience, not the least because it is incomplete, there's still plenty of reasons to give this one a shot. Particularly if you are in the mood for something a bit strange.
Some silly antics ensue as Mile and the other girls begin their lives at the hunter prep school. This one isn't asking a lot from the audience but it is just kind of fun.
Episode 2 gives us kind of more of the same only less focus on the multiple girls and more focus on what appears to be the core cast (at least for now). The overall result is an episode that works even if it isn't exactly mind-blowing.
