The Winter 2018 anime season was rife with cute shows, so how does this bit of adorableness stack up? Review: It should have become fairly clear to anyone who reads my blog and reviews with any regularity that I am not a fan of cute kids. Sweetness and Lightning didn't last long on my watch … Continue reading School Babysitters Series Review: They’re Cute… And?
Finally, this adorableness has come to an end and while I'll leave the question of whether there was ever any substance other than the power of cute kids in the anime to the full series review, episode 12 kind of had a good crack at reminding us about some of the solids this series has … Continue reading School Babysitters Episode 12: Let’s All Believe In Santa
The only actual babysitter (though he spends more time sleeping) employed in this anime is sick leaving Ryuuichi with a sudden moment of panic before the butler guy steps in to look after the kids. What I want to know is what normally happens given there is no way I'm believing that Usaida has never … Continue reading School Babysitters Episode 11: Why Don’t They Have Relief Staff?
Before watching the episode of School Babysitters this week I'd read a fairly scathing review of the anime focusing on the father's attitude to the daycare being staffed by men. At the time I read the review, thought it seemed a little bit over the top for an anime that has mostly been pretty benign … Continue reading School Babysitters Episode 10: Sexist Dads and Impressed Chicks?
Review: It is probably harsh to judge an anime episode based on an annoyance that every series seems to have shoved a beach sequence in over the past two weeks and yet just on seeing the water rushing onto the sand I wanted to stop the video and move on. I get that there are … Continue reading School Babysitters Episode 9: Yet Another Beach Episode For The Winter Anime Season
Review: It would be hard to argue that this was a better episode than any other of this series so far. It pretty much does everything that you would expect it to do. And yet twice during the episode, instead of just a smile, this episode managed to make me laugh out loud to the … Continue reading School Babysitters Episode 8: There’s a Perfect Level of Stupidly Cute Achieved This Week
Review: I'm glad it isn't just me confused by anime characters that can't admit when they like someone or not. This week, Inomata confused the kids to no end when she claimed not to like Ryuuichi, which in kid logic means she hates him. They then set out on a semi adorable quest to prove … Continue reading School Babysitters Episode 7: It Absolutely Isn’t ‘Like’
Review: Another fairly adorable finish to an episode as we had an attack of the pastel, sparkle bubbles surrounding our protagonists. And as snarky as that sounds, I'm mostly just covering for the fact that it was such a sweet ending to an episode and I really enjoyed seeing these two brothers get some time … Continue reading School Babysitters Episode 6: Go Kotaro, Go
Overview: Jiro (a vampire) is travelling with his younger brother, Kotaro) to the Special Zone which is a place where vampires are apparently able to live at peace. However, the brothers find all sorts of trouble on their way to the special zone and once they arrive it isn't exactly what they expected.
