Love is in the air as School Babysitters and Takagi-san double down on their romantic plot lines. On the flip side, A Place Further Than the Universe has a whole lot of vomiting, although I suppose true love is being able to throw up in front of someone without shame… OK, look, I’m just stalling because we’re approaching the end of the Battle Royale and I don’t want to cut any of these shows. AHHH!
The competition is getting fierce as we hit the halfway mark of the season and I’m starting to contemplate cutting shows I actually like. Ms. Koizumi, Laid Back Camp, and not surprisingly A Place Further Than the Universe all have solid episodes, but Sanrio Boys, School Babysitters, and even Takagi-san expose some of their nagging flaws. Will one of those be the next to get axed? Read on.
The bodies are piling up as we approach the mid-point of the battle. A Place Further Than the Universe continues to intimidate the competition, but the fighting is fierce between just about everyone else. With Ms. Koizumi and Laid Back Camp slowly winning me over and School Babysitters always managing to pull out last minute saves, the next few weeks are going to be rough.
How to Keep a Mummy, School Babysitters, and Takagi-san all do the “sick day” episode in the same week, which feels strangely appropriate as I’ve been fighting off a cold myself. Fortunately they were all pretty solid, which is more than I can see for Sanrio Boys and Mitsuboshi Colors this week. Will either of those be our next victim? Let’s fight it out.
Contenders School Babysitters and Takagi-san hit their first missteps, we still can’t decide a good short name for A Place Further Than the Universe (I’m partial to South Pole Girls), and most importantly, we pick up a corporate sponsor!
Ten cute shows drop on an adorable little island…
I, your brave Marlin am here to give Jel a break(mostly) as he prepares for our year’s end festivities. Meanwhile, we give a “Ganbare, Pine Jam!” as Just Because! gets into production issues again, Hina continues to shine in March Comes In Like a Lion, and Anime-Gataris goes full Samurai Flamenco.
