Hyouka episode 2, a.k.a, Clannad, is that you? I hear Okazaki and Sunohara, but things don’t seem the same….


In the latest episode of KyoAni’s latest future masterpiece(okay, I’m a few days behind, but that’s not the worst thing wrong with that sentence) they solve some stupid mystery that’s not really a mystery. Unfortunately, I think that’s all the show is going to be. Leading up to some mystery that matters. Or something. All because Chitanda is ‘curious’. Someone find her a hobby.
There’s no real synposis I can give you. There’s a ‘mysterious’ book in the school library, they go to the library, new character gets introduced, they deduce over the book, main character solves it with common sense. Not really a mystery, and everything is fine. Girl is going to use the main character. Great. Could use some more tea and cake.

Now, pictures,

Where's the goddamn tea?

You know who else bought treats from home? Mugi.

There's that damn tea.
And disaster warnings.

Oh dear, you're in a Kyoani anime, we've been here before.

Just replace 'publish an anthology' with 'perform a live'.

Since the great Takoyaki massacre of '98. It was horrible.
But seriously, what school does that?

Encapuslated in this one scene is the eternal struggle between woman and man, a.k.a, the woman forever trying to get the man to do something he doesn't.

And then we'll talk about getting married. Even though my mother would be against it, I'll still go through with it. But it'll all fall apart when we found out we're not genetically compatible, and he's long dead from difference in life spans.

 

I'd like to think Sir Arthur Conan Doyle imagined Sherlock going around quizzing around like this in his stories.

And Moriarty just hnnnnghed to death.

For how ridiculously lame this 'mystery' was, the music that played during this scene was so damn tense.

....but....the.....they......okay.

D'awww =)

I'm calling that the 'mystery' this anime is supposed to be, is the main character unravelling that he's actually the lead in a Kyoani anime.

 

Hey, I've seen Harajuku, it could be. Weird fads.

Probably their vaginas.

Yeahhhhhh.

Maid hnnnnnnnngh.

SHE SAID THE SECRET WORDDDDD!

Them some murder eyes right there.

The horrific murder end has been unlocked.

KyoAni Hnnnnnngh.

And that’s that. Now for Jormungand episode 4!

Starting up again, a recollection of this season’s anime so far.


Okay, I’m gonna start this stuff up again. And what better way to do that, than with my thoughts of the current anime of this season, the fine season of Spring!, that is for you damn northern hemispherers.

Moimy is watching,

  • Jormungand by gg
  • Kimi to Boku from HorribleSubs
  • Space Brothers from Commie
  • Tasogare Otome x Amnesia by UTW-Underwater
  • Nazo no Kanojo X by GotSpeed
  • Hyouka by Mazui
  • Polar Bear Cafe from HorribleSubs
  • Lupin III:A Woman called Mine Fujiko by Sage
  • Tsuritama from Commie-Fishing
  • Sakamichi no Apollon!!!!!!!!!!! from Commie-Commie.

And thus, I shall now deliberate my opinions on them thusly.

Jormungand which I was largely pinning to be another Black Lagoon(not that I like Black Lagoon or anything…) isn’t exactly so. Sure there’s a lot of seedy undergroundness, random/needless gunfights, Engrish OP,crazy mofos but it also just seems more like a normal anime than anything else. Just normal. And lesbians. But it’s probably going to focus on Koko mostly(HER NAME IS KOKO, SHE IS LOCO I SAID OH NO), with a little side of child solider-kun.
Kimi to Boku. Kimi to Boku.I’ll explain that with pictures.
Space Brothers. I like it. I read somewhere that it might be 40+ episodes, and I’m good with that. Nothing like realistic seinen for a slice of life/character development series. And anything that gives us an anime version of the Zidane headbutt is legendary for that alone.
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia. Ha. I sense a little something off from how far in the manga I’ve read, it feels very off and skirty-aroundy-things- but it’s sekushi so I’ll let it go. Yuuko be a jealous maiden.
Nazo no Kanojo X. Ew gross. Spit. Why. Why did they have to make that a romantic plot device? Omg why. I hate bodily fluids. Otherwise, this is aite. Except for the heroine’s voice, which just feels a little jarring and illplaced.
Hyouka.I would love to sit in on one of Kyoani’s meetings. “Remember that one show that got us really famous in the first place? Well apparently we’re making a second season of it. I’ve got an idea. We’ll switch the art style to that other show that wouldn’t exist without the first season of this one. And we’ll keep the art like that for EVERYTHING” “YEAHHH!”
Polar Bear Cafe. The same jokes again and again. Pretty sure this is a kids show. For Japanese.
Lupin III. Damn yo, this shit be stylish. You know how you take a cultural icon and drastically change it’s presentation, and somehow it’s still good? Yeah, fuck you Michael Bay. But Lupin III be good. I can’t imagine how it is for all the lifelong fans of Lupin in Japan though.
Tsuritama. Okay, it looks like Kenji is back on track after….C. But I’m aiming to watch every episode of this drunk, and will blog accordingly so. Two episodes down and I’m still on track. All I remember is fishing, ailens and knots.
Sakamichi no Apollon. The fucking moneyshot anime of the season. Goddamn. It may be a slice of life, but it feels good yo. It those feels. And the OP single came out today. It’s good ya. I know you can say this about anything she’s done, but Kanno was good on Macross Frontier. When you can make music for pop idols amongst everything else she’s done….daymn.

Okay, the pictures.
Space Brothers,

Worth the whole anime.

Kimi to Boku.

I don't...

..understand how...

...this...

...is...

shonen.

Panda Bear Cafe,

Says Moimy to all the girls in the club.

Jormungand,

Yeah, okay. Jackass.

That. That. That cigarette looks weird.

It should probably be noted that he's bragging to some snipers he just shot down on a far away rooftop with an AK-47, but the scene before, he couldn't hit a small child who was running toward him, a few meters away. But whatever, I have Equilibrium on my harddrive.

"Yeah, whatever dude, stop trying to change the conversation. I know you slept with my wife"
"Shit".

And most of the people watching this on the internet have already identified themselves with one of these characters. Guess.

And that’s that. I’d post things about my misadventures at Armageddon and such, but meh.
Look forward to more posts. Yay.
