And so, Twin Spica now has a twin review, as I was more than happy to do a second opinion of it after having watched it as part of our traditional synchro sessions. It was a 2003 show that looked more like a 90's show, but still holds up really, really well by today's storytelling standards.

And that's that. Next week, we might have demon lords. We might have monster girls. Or we might have something entirely different altogether. See you all then.

The Apostrophe is Heaven's Comma.

That is to say, I had to read the title of Allen's next project -- Heaven Official's Blessing - several times to not read it as "Heaven's Official". Even weirder, Allen lets another Haoliner show step even higher up on the quality ladder. Clearly, me and Mel started on the wrong end.

Well, that's it for this week. Next week, we'll be going to the moon... if Allen doesn't beat me to it, that is.

"I Knew We Should Have Taken A Left At Atlantis."

So yeah, Allen's pick of the week is Penguin Highway, which is a bit of a look at the special kind of love that can only take place when your home gets invaded by thousands and thousands of penguins. And the moral of the story is... there's no better wingman than someone who actually has wings? Even if they can't be used to fly? I was going somewhere with this, I think.

Anyway, that was weird. Hopefully, next week will be less weird. See you all then.

Tencent Princess.

Well, at least Allen thought Psychic Princess thought was kinda alright. I know I haven't exactly been very... nice... to Tencent's earlier efforts, so it is at least encouraging to see something worthwhile being created. Even if the show is taking some creative liberties with the time period in question and the gender roles of said time period.

And that's it for this week. Next week, will you expect the penguin inquisition?

Allen takes a look at Re:CREATORS and finds it a fascinating study in "what if your main character in that terrible fanfic you wrote when you were a teenager came out of your story to exact terrible revenge on you?" Or something like that. And not one Ahnold in sight. Probably.

Anyway, update slightly later than usual today, so... yeah. See you again next week.

Breaking a Leg Or Two For The Love Of Your Life.

Allen takes a look at Tonikawa: Over The Moon For You, a show about two people starting their new life together at the scene of a serious accident. From there, it goes through most of the motions of a 90's anime romantic sitcom for both good and bad.

And that's Allen saving our weekly hide once again. See you all later.
