Weekly Anime Roundup – Spring 2015 Week 4

I’m currently putting eardrops in my ears which means I can’t really use headphones, and I don’t like watching anime without headphones in, so there’s not much getting watched over the last few days. I watched a few series before that, though. The next few days are likely to be fairly busy but after that I may have a few weeks with not much happening, which should hopefully enable me to catch up.

Episodes watched this week:
Gunslinger Stratos: The Animation 1
Houkago no Pleiades 1
Etotama 1
Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic 4
Takamiya Nasuno Desu!: Teekyuu Spin-off 4
Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken 2 Sure-me 4

Omakase! Miracle Cat-dan has been placed on hold due to me being unable to find any episodes after episode 1.

Lupin III has been removed from the Not Yet Started section as it is unavailable outside Italy (including not in Japan) until this autumn.

Pants… sorry, Punch Line was as stupid as expected. Unfortunately it was also stupid in the wrong way as expected.

Hibike! Euphonium I was reluctant to watch for some reason, but I’m not really sure why – it’s probably the biggest pleasant surprise of the season so far, and the best KyoAni anime since season 1 of Chuu2Koi I think.

Ore Monogatari from the first episode looks like it could be good, although good is about as far as it goes. Still, that’s pretty decent for a shoujo romance.

Etotama is a fun and funny nothing but well worth the watch. Uri-tan best character desu desu.

Gunslinger Stratos was confusing. That’s about all that I can say about it. Nothing makes sense from the first episode at all.

Houkago no Pleiades is a real shame. It’s kind of to be expected given the origins of the series, but the fairly decent magical girl series gets ruined by the (unfortunately not really) random car engine noise. I’m probably going to drop it and only because of that.
