Dear Santa, thank you for the dolls and pencils and the fish. It's Easter now, so I hope I didn't wake you but... honest, it is an emergency. There's a crack in my wall. Aunt Sharon says it's just an ordinary crack, but I know its not cause at night there's voices so... please please can you send someone to fix it? Or a policeman, or...
Back in a moment.
Thank you Santa.

Priorities

I was tinkering with RPG Maker MV last weekend, and wanted to see if I could create a character with red half-rim glasses.

Yep.

Make this.  


Only with Mugi in it.

Huh.  I seem to have discovered a genre.

The Disappearance Of Yuki Nagato

I wasn't expecting it to be literally a mix of Haruhi and Nanaka 6/17.

But, well, I like Haruhi, and I love Nanaka 6/17, so a mix of the two is no bad thing if it's done well.  And it is.

If you were looking for another season of Haruhi with not so much Haruhi in it, this is it.

Three sparkly eyes out of four.  Though...  When exactly did Kyon's sister turn into Miu from Ichigo Marshmallow?

The Disappearance Of Nanaka Kirisato

In which we find out what happens when we mix equal parts Haruhi and Nanaka 6/17.

It's a bit of a worry when Haruhi is the voice of reason.

The Randomisation Of Haruhi Suzumiya

Before I watch the Haruhi movie, I'm watching the BD release in order.

Or am I?  I haven't watched season two before, but I seem to have run into it before getting to the close of season one, which ends with episode zero.

There is only one true order in which to watch Haruhi, and that is out of.

Himouto Umaru-Chan Ep 8

That was really good.

This show shouldn't work as well as it does.  It's a stupid little one-joke gag manga.    I'll have to see if I can find the manga itself (yep), because the anime does something rather clever with that: The joke isn't the joke, and they never actually tell the real joke, they just let you catch glimpses of it.  And it never stops being funny.


And all the while, they're busy trotting out tired old cliche comedy characters and turning them into real people so deftly you hardly notice at first.

I gave the first episode a 3 out of 5, when I expected it to be a 2 at best.  By episode 5 it was a solid 4. This latest episode was a 4.5.

Recommended.

Update: I just read the two of the chapters that made up episode 8.  All the material is there in the manga, but I like the anime a lot better.  And there's enough material in the manga for a second season (they're currently on chapter 41 out of 119), so I'm hoping it does well enough for that to happen.

Anime

So, It Begins...

With episode 7, Ushio and Tora has diverged from the 90s OVA and is covering new ground from the manga.

I was wrong that it was keeping the pace of the original, too.  I just checked if this episode was something I'd forgotten from the original, and found that the sea monster from last episode took two episodes in the OVA.  I was worried that with 39 episodes instead of 10 they might draw it out and spoil the pacing, but they have 33 volumes of manga to get through and it looks like they're not going to slow down for anything.

What they really must do, though, when they come to the end, is remake the songs from the original CD Theater bonus.


Unfortunately that's a VHS transfer (I have that tape) and it skips, but there's a DVD version available if you know where to look.
