Ushio And Tora 2015 Ep 6

Ushio and Tora has been in my all time favourite anime list for so long that I was starting to forget why it was there.

The reason is this: It's really, really good.

The new TV series is still running parallel to the 1990s OVAs, essentially episode-for-episode, with just some minor tweaks - for example, Ushio's father actually shows up now and then, and in this latest episode Asako has a cell phone with her when she's swallowed by a giant sea serpent.*

More importantly, six episodes in, and they haven't set a foot wrong.  Okay, maybe the CGI doesn't always mesh perfectly with the cel animation, but they've been completely true to the story and the feel of the original series.

Five fluffy monster kitties out of five.

* And when I say "giant", this thing has entire cargo ships floating in its stomach.

Himouto Umaru-Chan Ep 5

For a one-joke gag series, this is...  Not just a one-joke gag series.  It's a pleasant surprise how intelligent and observant this show is.

Also:

Four hamster cape thingies out of five.*

* I wondered how Umaru's hamster outfit didn't git a bit ratty when it's all she ever wears around the house.  This episode answers that question.

Cool

Gonna Party Like It's 1987!

Except they dropped Ruby for Javascript.  Bleh.


The big news is that this RPGMaker MV will support not just Windows, but Mac as well, and games will also run on iOS, Android, and web browser.  Hence the unfortunate switch from Ruby to Javascript for game scripting.

Also, while the standard resolution is a pretty miserable 832x624, beta testers report it works fine at 1920x1080 with a plugin, so it won't be an ant speck on my 4K monitor.

Anime

Amagi Brilliant Park

Did that sheep just say what I think - 

Yes, yes it did.

Usual excellent production qualities from this recent Kyoto Animation outing, with the usual meh story.  I thought it was another original story like the very meh Tamako Market. but no, there's a series of light novels.

3 pervert sheeps out of 5.

Anime

Himouto Umaru-Chan

I'm disappointed that himouto isn't a portmanteau of hamster and imouto.


The first episode is a bit shaky, but episodes two and three were stronger, making the characters seem more like people and less like comic props.
