Dear Netflix

Glitter Force is not a "Netflix Original".  It's a bastardised version of season nine of Pretty Cure

Speaking of which, Pretty Cure is up to season 13 with no signs of slowing.  Unfortunately only the first season is worth watching unless you're a girl between the ages of five and ten.  With the second season they narrowed their target audience, and since then their targeting has become laser-precise.  But on the fourth hand, the franchise is a massive commercial success, so I can't exactly blame them for that.

Season one - the real Pretty Cure - was directed by Daisuke Nishio, who also directed the little-known Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z.  It's a lot more action-oriented than the later seasons, and that would go a long way to explain why.

Time Travel Girl

/images/TimeTravelGirl.jpg?size=720x&q=95

Come on.  Everyone should know by now that you don't use a defibrillator on someone who -

Wait, he's specifically in ventricular fibrillation?  Very well, then.  You may proceed.

Update: "If taking back his opinion would set him free, why doesn't he just do it?"
"I'm sure his pride as a scientist is at stake."

While discussing Giordano Bruno.

Update: Wait a minute! Did they just create a four hundred year stable time loop using only whipped cream, sponge cake, and a magnetised needle stuck through a cork?

Update: And to top it all off, a practical demonstration of the Curie temperature of iron, which I've never seen done before.

Update: "Did they just create a stable time loop with a cake and a compass needle?"  Yes.  Yes they did.  This series is about three things: The electromagnetic force, stable time loops, and cake.  Works better than you might expect.

Promo


I love the music in the promo.  I don't know where it's from, or if it was written specifically for this series.  It's not the opening theme, which is below, or the ending, which isn't available on Youtube.  But without spoiling anything, it is used within the show when the situation calls for it.

Opening



Ending

I know I just said it wasn't on Youtube, but I finally found it by searching for MariWaka rather than Time Travel Girl.  (The full name of the show is Time Travel Girl - Mari, Waka to 8-nin no Kagakusha-tachi.  Mari and Waka are the two girls in the picture above.)



I'm enjoying this more with every episode.  Recommended.  Streaming on Funimation and (in Australia) AnimeLab.

My Hero Academia

Is actually really good.  It's pure Shounen Jump fare, but it's up there with the best of that genre.

Rather than reading through a lengthy review, watch the opening credits.  It's truth in advertising, what you see here is exactly what you get.

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.

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.
