Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episode 10: The Silver Lining

Well, the one thing I consistently liked about this anime, the song they use when transforming the monsters back, was butchered this weak by the geriatric versions of the cast. I'd call it quits but I'm thinking there's only like two episodes left. There was something that could have been quite funny about this episode. … Continue reading Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episode 10: The Silver Lining

Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episode 9: Roll the Dice

While this isn't the worst episode of this anime, that isn't exactly a resounding recommendation as we continue to get no plot development and a formulaic approach that has already worn out its welcome. It is festival time at the school and the club have to come up with a compelling activity because... reasons. Something … Continue reading Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episode 9: Roll the Dice

Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episode 8: Endless Summer, Endless Formula

While we're sticking true to pattern with this episode, it at least did have a few chuckles along the way and turning the usual anime summer antics on their head was kind of entertaining even if nothing else really changed. When the most remarkable thing about episode seven was that I managed to review it … Continue reading Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episode 8: Endless Summer, Endless Formula

Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episodes 7: The Less Said

Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss = make one episode and relocated it 5 times. This franchise had most definitely run dry with ideas and this latest version is clearly just a cash grab rather than an inspired redeployment of creativity. Seriously, Team Rocket (aka the student council) need a new battle plan already … Continue reading Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episodes 7: The Less Said

Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episodes 6: Rinse and Repeat

I get that magical girl anime are formulaic at times, but a parody needs to do more than replay over and over again. We get the joke already.   This episode served as further evidence that the less actual plot an episode provides, the more likely we are to get a full transformation sequence. In … Continue reading Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episodes 6: Rinse and Repeat

Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episodes 4 + 5: Are You Happy?

We continue our plot of over-simplistic villains and solutions that make no sense as our brave (or rather reluctant) knights continue to thwart attempts at... You know, I'm not even sure that the villain in this anime has an actual plan. Episode 4: Dad obsessed with finding buried treasure drives son to ranting at people … Continue reading Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episodes 4 + 5: Are You Happy?

DamePri Anime Caravan Series Review: Take Standard Reverse Harem With Just a Touch of Parody

There's something to be said for a anime that can be so silly and yet take itself fairly seriously when it comes to dishing out some serious drama. DamePri kind of walks a fine line throughout most of its run time but the end result is pretty entertaining. What did you think? Review: Given I'm … Continue reading DamePri Anime Caravan Series Review: Take Standard Reverse Harem With Just a Touch of Parody

Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episode 3: Ridiculous Villains Here

I asked last week how many weeks you could run the same joke and this anime is determined to find out. Strictly formulaic in its approach, you either enjoy the conversations between the characters or there's really nothing much else going on. I think the one thing this season has over previous ones, is that … Continue reading Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episode 3: Ridiculous Villains Here

Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episode 2: The Hero’s Indifference

How many weeks can an anime milk the joke of a team of heroes uninterested in the villains and the lame monsters¬† and have it remain amusing? Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss is definitely going to try to find out as it runs this joke ragged. Maybe I'm just go to show my … Continue reading Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episode 2: The Hero’s Indifference

Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss First Impressions

I enjoyed the first Cute High Earth Defense Club anime but dropped the sequel mid-way because it just felt repetitive. I wasn't going to pick this up, but a few positive reviews encouraged me to try episode one. I ended up being pleasantly surprise. What did you think of this first episode? What happens when … Continue reading Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss First Impressions
