Hmmmmmmmmmm...

Update ran a little late again. (That's the late shift for you.)

Anyway, to say that Allen didn't have a good time with MM! would be a bit of an understatement. It's a perverted comedy about a guy who loves getting beat up, so the resident tsundere lineup basically have carte blanche access to wail on his ass as if it was the meatiest pinata ever. I mean... after this, what's next? A show about a girl who loves getting molested on the subway?

Hopefully, we'll see you next week. If we feel ready to leave the showers yet, that is.

Oh my Gods.

Well, I've got only one review for you this week. Most of our staff's been quite busy with various stuff, so there's just me at the moment.

And the show I chose for you guys are another reverse harem show, because I seem to have picked up a strange fascination with those since Neo Angelique Abyss. Kamigami no Asobi is actually a bit better than Neo Angelique Abyss, though, for a few reasons, so step in and find out for yourselves.

Spooning with the Silver and Mooning with the MOE.

And not a moment too soon...

Allen leads off with a real gem of a show; Silver Spoon, a really nice, if occasionally uncomfortable, look at the things we might eat.

Whether you want some coffee after the main course is going to depend on how much sugar you can tolerate with it. I brought Tim with me on our journey through the review for Is the Order a Rabbit?, a title that is a question upon itself. Because... well, you tell me.

Well, that's that, I guess. See you again next week.

How to Entertain Yourself in One Dangerous High School Lesson.

So... yeah, someone me and Tim ended up watching two shows where at least one high school student took to rather extreme measures to pass the time. Also, I'm one day late... again. Sorry about that. You'd think starting work again after a long and lovely summer vacation would help me remember, but apparently not. (I blame it all on, hilariously appropriately enough; Terraria.)

Anyway, my title of the week is Nanana's Buried Treasure, a show about a guy who moves to an artificial island built by a bunch of highschoolers to go treasure hunting -- I mean, seriously, what are they teaching you kids in school these days? -- where he comes into contact with the victim of a murder and sets about trying to solve that mystery while also risking his life on treasure hunts.

The titular Seki-kun has chosen a more sedate manner of entertaining himself in short comedy skit show Tonari no Seki-kun, a show that might inspire some games of your own on those slow days. Seki's way of handing things might sound a bit safer than Juugo's, but that's only if the girl he's distracting with his antics doesn't end up murdering him.

Well, that's it for now. See you again next week. And if not, please dispatch the rescue team.
