Episode 3 of Seirei Gensouki seems to have wrapped up Rio's time at school. I still kind of wish the side characters had a bit more personality about them but this was a pleasant enough third episode with the promise of the story expanding in the next episode. Be sure to read the full review.

Mahouka Koukou no Yuutousei is going to end up being great complimentary viewing to Irregular, but I'm not sure that it is yet doing enough to stand on its own. Still, seeing Miyuki's new friends playing detective was kind of fun this week. Be sure to read the full review.
Alderamin on the Sky is a military fantasy anime that mostly works. The lack of ending is a bit of a problem as is the overall pacing, but if you like Ikta's approach to life you'll have a lot of fun along the way. Here are my episodic thoughts.
While Seirei Gensouki still seems very much in set-up stage it has done enough to intrigue me. That said, it wasn't the introduction of sad b-grade antagonists that won me over and this episode has two of them. Be sure to read the full review.

We're reliving the entry exam, opening ceremony and first few days at the magic high school only this time Mahouka Koukou no Yuutousei filters the events through the eyes of Honoka. I'll admit, I was surprised given the synopsis of this series clearly said we were seeing this through Miyuki's eyes but it was great seeing Honoka getting a voice. Be sure to read the full review.

Post sponsored by Crow's World of Anime. We're heading back to magic high school with Mahouka Koukou no Yuutousei but in this spin-off from The Irregular at Magic High School we follow Mayuki, the honour student. While I'm thrilled to be returning to this magical setting I am wondering if Mayuki can carry the story.
D Gray Man Hallow came along so many years after the D Gray Man series had just kind of stopped and I was thrilled. Would we finally get the conclusion this series deserved? Well, no, but there was still some fun to be had with the return of this anime.
The final episode of Mars Red concludes this vampire tale and Irina and I look back on the episode and the series - and also offer some script rewrites.
At 12 minutes an episode, Momokuri isn't a huge time investment, which is probably a good thing. While there's plenty of cute in this series there's not a lot of substance. Still if awkward budding romance is your thing you might find Momokuri adorable.
