This accidentally fell out of her pocket when I bumped into her. Took me four goes.

Poot

I found that great live performance of the Nuku Nuku opening song by Megumi Hayashibara from last year and it's gone already.

Whoever is doing that needs to be launched into orbit via steam catapult.

The Great Passage

Was poking through things today looking for something to watch.  I know there are some good shows airing right now, but I prefer to wait until there's a full season available.

And I tripped over The Great Passage a.k.a Fune wo Amu.

I didn't look it up, just watched the first episode cold.  That was the right decision.

This won't spoil anything, but will give you a feel for it.


You've probably guessed just by looking at it that it's Noitamina.

Here's the opening, which I quite like too.


There's a lovely scene in episode two that just involves two characters sharing a glance, but speaks volumes about their personalities and history and also has perfect comedic timing.  They don't need to say a word.  I won't say who or why or what, but you'll know it when you see it.

Give it a try.

Reindexing

So, I took a break from what I was doing - which was building indexes - to watch some Index II, having just finished Railgun.  And I wondered if anything was happening with the series, or if it had ended a few years ago with Railgun S.

Turns out...


Index III starts airing October 6.

I read it for the articles.

It was announced a while ago, but I genuinely did not know that when I started watching the show recently.

Toaru Majutsu No Index

Just finished watching this - only took me ten years.

It's good for the most part, but the pacing is terribly uneven.  It ploughs through six volumes of light novels in 24 episodes, but some of them take up six full episodes, while one is dispatched in just two.  And because of that the story never entirely jells.  (Also partly because the story is complete nonsense.)  The first arc - which is given the most time - definitely works the best, but even that is somewhat rushed.

Those quibbles aside, they do manage to do many things well.  Every character in the rather busy opening credits is shown, fleshed out, and placed in context in the respective halves of this first series.  Except for the maid girl, who is mostly still just a caricature, and Uiharu and Saten, who are major characters in Railgun but I don't recall ever seeing in Index, not even in the background.

Onwards and Railgunwards!


Don't recall any pengis, though.  Sorry.  Here are some substitute pengis for you.


And extra substitute lazy Sunday pengis!

A Place Further Than The Universe

Ah, now that's what I was looking for.  It's K-On for penguins.  It even has its own Nodoka and Ui.

We Will Stick Together

At least until we work out how to undo this glue spell.


This is your regular reminder that Little Witch Academia was the best thing that happened in 2017.

Himoutos R Us

I included Himouto Umaru-chan on my list of 58 Anime Shows You Should Watch before getting to the second season.  Then I wondered if it really ranks that highly.  Then I watched the second season.

Yes.

It's a latter-day Calvin and Hobbes.
