And now the details …
I am going to try and do the show titles in English. If you want to find the series, this may be a little easier. It will certainly be easier for me. As for what I want to watch this season, I am planning to watch the series that make me smile. And on that really has me smiling is Rage of Bahamut: Genesis. While I really like Kaiser, Favaro is a lot of fun to watch too. Kaiser now has a side kick Rita, the girl he could not kill in the zombie town. I really enjoyed that episode. As I said last week the artwork/character designs remind me of Karas. And it should as it is done by the same person. There are times when action is over the top and other times with you would expect it to be over-heated, it is quiet and almost normal. The funniest image from last episode is Favaro and his demon tail.
Another series that I am enjoying right now is “The Circumstances in My Home’s Bathtub”. Man with Merman in his tub. From the outset this should be a BL series, but it isn’t. It keeps trying to lead me down that path, but at the last minute reveals that is just a merman in a guy’s tub trying to make nice. The only down side to this series is that it is only 4 minutes long. Usually I leave those alone, but not this time. This week Tatsumi comes home to find Takasu, an octopus-man in the tub with Wakasa, his merman visitor. Check it out.
Another short episode series is Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie, it is 5 minutes in length. It is an online anime series or an ONA. The problem I have with this one is just as it is getting really interesting, it is over. It is listed at a planned 24 episodes. At this rate they won’t get through a day!
And finally for this week, I am going to talk a little about Gundam Reconquista in G. There is usual Gundam stuff in this episode. They are still setting up the characters and the plot. But the most interesting thing I saw or learned if you will, is how one using the toilet in a gundam. Or where it is for that matter! If you haven’t seen the episode, the toilet is under the driver’s seat. If there is more than one of you, a privacy screen is provided. We actually get to see two characters make use of the facilities. This has really made the whole gundam franchise more real for me. So far there is nothing new here, just the familiarity of the franchise. So far it has two different franchises to enjoy – Eureka Seven and Gundam.
And now for what I am reading – Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon and Vampire Knight.
