Senryuu Shoujo Review Episode 6


Leader of the non-rebellion.


Episode 6

There’s definitely something seriously wrong with Nanako’s family, particularly her father. I mean, I get he’s playing the overprotective daddy trope but how on earth could you reach the conclusion that Nanako is rebelling. And why is that his biggest issue with his daughter when she never actually speaks. Surely that’s of greater concern than whether or not she’s becoming a thug.


I did like the lead in this week with the club president and Eiji sharing pictures of their pets. One thing that I always find weird in any kind of show is when someone has a pet rabbit. Given it is illegal to own rabbits where I live and they are considered an invasive pest, the idea of keeping one as a pet just strikes me as bizarre. More or less like owning a pet cane-toad.


The moments with Eiji, his sister and Nanako at the park are cute but that’s about it in terms of what you can say about it Unless you want to get into the repeated rabbit poo joke that just seemed there to fill run time as it was pretty much nothing.


With the majority of the episode focusing in on Nanako’s father freaking out about his potentially ‘rebellious’ child though there just wasn’t enough cute going on to off-set it. And while we did resolve the issue at the end and everything ends with a sparkling smile, there’s just too much that doesn’t sit right. I think I prefer this anime when it focuses on the school stuff and it is rare for me to say that.

Help me, I’ve been tagged by the T.A.P Tag

Cells at Work - Episode 2 - Platelets

Fewer things scare me more than trying to write poetry that has strict syllable limitations. I can’t even keep my episode reviews to an approximate 100 words let alone try and say anything useful in five lines, but here we go. Thanks to the wonderful Alex Prange (link below in the rules), I’m giving this a go. Now I could have passed on the tag except that I do love a challenge and as much as this one seems like an enterprise doomed to failure I refuse to turn tail and run.

Unless it ends badly in which case I will flee the country or at the very least severely edit the post.

Rules of the tag:

  1. Headline your post with “The T.A.P. Tag!” and put “tanka” as one of your tags.
  2. Make sure to link back to the original post that started the tag (this post!).
  3. Make sure to mention the person who forced introduced the tag to you! (Thanks Alex)
  4. Pick 1-3 of your favorite anime.
  5. Write your tanka about the anime you’ve chosen. It’s fine if you decide to do only one or two if the schedule is tight.
  6. Tag at least 3 or more bloggers you know, and get their creative muscles flowing (Sharing the love with Rocco B, Raistlin, and Chloe – apologies if you’ve done this one.)

Yuri on Ice – Victor’s Tears


Words with edge like glass

Shatter heart and illusions

Begin dream anew

See truth of love and person

Bind hearts closer than before.

March Comes in Like a Lion – Rei’s Untouchable Sunshine


The sunlit goddess

Draws me like moth to candle

But I cannot touch

Distance expands between us

I raise the pedestal high.

Madoka Magica – Homura’s Selfish Wish


This dark, crazy world

Alone I face all trials

For I chose this path

Denying other’s choices

Rejected their oblation.

And that is my somewhat feeble attempt at poetry. Hopefully you somewhat enjoyed that and I certainly enjoyed the challenge of trying to put them together. I think Victor’s turned out the best but I’d love to know what you thought of them so leave me a comment even if it is just to tell me not to count on a career as a poet.

Thanks for reading.
