Re:Creators Episodes 1-4

This is pretty well done, and some of the artwork is amazing.  Fiction is leaking, and an evil MUP is out to destroy all of creation.

Kind of talky though.  If it fails as a series, that will likely be the breaking point.

For now I give it three whackadoodle magical girls out of four.

As has become the sad new trend, there's no Op video on Youtube, but here's the Ed while it lasts:

How long did it last?  Not long.

Little Witch Academia Episode 16

This week Amanda is the cause of most of the fuss instead of Akko.  It's good to see Amanda back in action again; she's been sidelined for a while.

Akko meanwhile is getting pretty good with the shape-changing magic, following in Shiny Chariot's broomsteps.  Of course, Akko being Akko, it somehow always turns out like this:

Un Nyaa Nyaa

Nyaa Torrents is no more.  It's gone to the great big 404 in the sky.

I'm not sure who ran it or where it was hosted, but this may have been in response to a recent Dutch court ruling that fansubs are explictly copyright violation.

I have my AnimeLab subscription, but they have some major gaps in their lineup - Little Witch Academia, for example, which is the best show of 2017.  I'll have to see how well Crunchy streaming works here in Oz.

Little Witch Academia Episode 15

The series continues to be excellent, with the occasional episode (like last week) being merely very good.  I have mixed feelings about the new opening theme song, but there's some lovely animation to go with it.

This episode runs into the curse of 1080p. The text of the newspaper Lotte is reading is just legible to the viewer.  It's actually Kafka's Metamorphosis.

Check Out The Crabs In The Bucket

Stolen shamelessly from Brickmuppet.

Anime is Tamako Market, which is, from my limited viewing...  Not nearly as fun as this wonderful AMV makes it look.

Song is a cover of k-os' Crabbuckit by The Good Lovelies.

Miss Kobayashi's Maid Chorogon Eps 7-10

After a few weeks away from this show it took me at least a minute to get back into the swing of things.  It continues to pack a lot of silliness and a lot of actual story into each episode.  And the fifth dragon finally made her appearance.

Kanna is still best chorogon* though.

Three and a half bowls of dragon tail soup out of four.

Little Witch Akkodemia TV Eps 7-10

Episodes 7 and 8 were terrific, every bit as good as the movies.  9 and 10 weren't quite as good - nicely done, but very predictable - but the essential charm of the characters holds the show up high even during weaker stories.

Also, I think this is the first time we see Akko using fairly major magic on her own and having it work exactly as intended.  What she used it for was pure Akko nuttiness, but it's nice to see her competence and confidence continue to grow.

Still no opening credits clip on Youtube, but gets four shiny chariots out of four anyway.

Little Witch Academia TV Episode 5

Interesting.  We haven't seen Akko learn any magic yet, with the two exceptions of when she has access to a powerful artifact or when she's screwing up a potion.  But here she is using basic magic entirely casually, so she has been learning.

We have the team from the The Enchanted Parade back in action (and back in trouble) and between them they have the firepower of an AC-130.  And these are the C students of the academy.  In Akko's case, C-.

They also have the tactical sense of a mildly concussed Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy, which I suspect is why they haven't yet taken over the world.
