It's a duck pond.
Why aren't there any ducks?
I don't know. There's never any ducks.
Then how do you know it's a duck pond?

Anime

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun

I was intrigued by the visuals for the Notice Me AMV, so I looked it up.  It's a series called Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun from 2014, and it's really quite good.

Unfortunately the OP got pulled down from Youtube, so you get this mashup instead.


If you want to know what the story is about, well, it's this:


It's one of those shows that could be enjoyable or could totally fall flat, depending on whether the humour clicks with you.

So far I'm loving it.

Update: 12 episodes was just the right length, and the ending was handled well.  Recommended if you in the mood for that sort of fluffy romantic comedy.

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.
