This Always Happens

I'm off to Melbourne for a few days to visit my nephews.  And their parents too, I suppose.

Today it was 30C in Sydney.
Tomorrow it will be 15C in Melbourne.

Maybe I'll pack a long-sleeved shirt after all.

Anime

Clannad

I suffered brain freeze halfway through the opening credits.

Pretty like all Kyoani output, void of content like almost all Kyoani output.

No amoebas.

Anime

Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun

A.k.a. Pander! Go pander!

This is the succubus one.  Not total rubbish, but not a lot of surprises either.

Two big bouncy amoebas.

Anime

Rental Magica

This is the first of the new season that gives the impression that some real talent went into the animation (though Mokke is nice enough).  The opening action sequence is definitely cool, particularly the rocket broom.  And the obligatory cute meganeko witch.

The story, unfortunately, is stupid.

Maybe that will improve.  But for now, just two amoebas.

Anime

Kimikiss Pure Rouge

High school romance.  Childhood friends separated and reunited.  Fortunately uninfiltrated by the squeaky voice brigade - better production qualities all round, in fact.

Not amazing, but a solid two amoebas.

Anime

Night Wizard

The girls with guns genre needs a little livening up, Tanaka-san.  What can you give us for the fall season?

Anno...  Hotties with howitzers?  Cuties with crossbows?

Tanaka?

Hai?

You're fired.

Failed Shana-wannabe.  One amoeba.

Anime

Myself Yourself

I was going to give this no amoebas based on the first minute, then bumped that up to one amoeba after the second minute, then two amoebas during the opening credits...  Then back down to one amoeba.  And a small, sickly one at that.

High school romance.  Childhood friends separated and reunited.  Indifferently animated; while digital animation ensures that everything is clear and colourful, I don't get the impression that anyone particularly cared about this show.

Oh, and wait for the dub.  Trust me on this.

Rating: One amoeba.  With a wooden leg.

Anime

Blue Drop

Who gave the UN space planes?  This can't end well.

And just how many exclusive Swiss finishing schools are there in Japan?

We have: One (1) mystery girl who has , one (1) mystery girl whose , one (1) shy meganeko, one (1) cute teacher, twelve (12) incidental characters who may or may not play roles in the unfolding story, and two (2) apparently unconnected subplots.

Worth watching a second episode.  Could be good if the story is handled well.  Artwork, character designs, animation and music are all okay, but unremarkable.  We'll see.

For now: Two amoebas out of four.

Anime

Mokke

Not sure exactly what this show is about - the first episode features giant mystical brain-eating amoebas - but I like the artwork, background music, and characters well enough.

Two sisters with minor spiritual powers have moved from the city to live with their grandfather, who is apparently a Shinto priest.  Slice of life with monsters unfolds.

The younger sister looks and acts like a nine-year-old Megumi from Ah My Goddess, which is a plus in my book.  Good enough to make me want to watch the second episode.

Score: Three amoebas out of four.
